Unpacking the American Rescue Plan
"The motion is adopted. Lowering gambino political correspondent for guardian. Usc bobby sleeping covering the one point nine trillion dollars bit relief package that passed through congress. Last week is on the way. It's called the american rescue plan. How big is it. Thur americans the plan itself is huge in scale and scope. it's one point nine trillion dollars. Which even. I sort of have to take a moment realize how massive this bill is. It's being billed as one of the biggest pieces of legislation. Congress passed in possibly generation. Many of the big measures are temporary. They're set to last for a year or just for the next few months but there are pushes already by democrats to make some of these provisions permanent that would mean pretty significant changes in the american social safety net. Can you give me some examples of ice measures. The moose well known piece of this bill is the fourteen hundred dollar checks to individuals. So if you're someone who makes below seventy five thousand dollars a year or you're a couple who makes less than one hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year you will receive these fourteen hundred dollar checks that will come in addition to the other provisions which provide housing assistance assistance for food assistance for healthcare. Then there's this other big precision. It's called the child tax credit it's existed for a while now but this bill dramatically expands the credit and it also expanded eligibility for it so that more. Low income families qualify. What's novel is at. Its affectively of form of guaranteed income. The payments will be made monthly to these families rather than qualifying only for the credit during tax season. And that's a huge change both financially and philosophically in the way americans dole-outs welfare in this country. And so this is a provision that some policy experts have forecast would cut child poverty in half in america especially for black families and latino families. So this could have a huge huge impact on low income americans who've been especially hurt by the job losses. This is the one piece that democrats believe once it's been enacted through this legislation that they will have some success making permanent and indeed if they do it would completely restructure how we look at child welfare this country and as you said the title bell is in the trillions and when we start talking in trillions he basically leaves me but i found it something like a tenth of gdp so as you say huge how significant is for biden. And for setting out. Biden's agenda anyway. You look at it. It's a big political victory for joe biden. He came in saying he was going to do this. Part of his victory is certainly attributable to donald trump's mismanagement of the coronavirus pandemic and this was his promise not to mention a few months later when the senate was still in the balance to georgia senate candidates both democrats promised georgia voters that they would be sending them two thousand dollar checks if they win their races in georgia and democrats control the senate so this is seen as making good on that. Promise the the difference. The two thousand dollar checks are now fourteen hundred dollars but the democrats make the case that they said six hundred dollar checks to americans in december and so this brings up the total to two thousand. Yeah politicians always find ways to add up the numbers. Now as you said and the democrats have a slim majority in the house and a wafer thin majority in the senate because of those georgia senators a majority of one with comma harris. How difficult was this to pass. This was a big political. Lift for joe biden. And what's interesting is that it was so difficult given how popular the legislation was with the american people. Cbs news poll. Seventy five percent of americans say they support the measure including almost half of republicans in most well-known provisions of the bill pulled even higher than the entire bill itself and even then joe biden wasn't able to bring along any republicans you know. He came into office. One of his big promises was that he would be able to work across the aisle and bridge the gaps. They called this the most progressive piece of legislation in history. That absolutely did not happen for those who watching progressive means socialism. And then you have with his razor thin margins. You have a lot of factions within the democratic party. That were jostling for control. And he really had to contend with some objections from moderate democrats particularly in the senate where one senator can blow up the entire negotiation. He was able to do this this time. But i think this sets up a lot of questions about what comes

Inside Biden’s $1.9 Trillion Stimulus Bill
"Start right there with a pass of that. Covid stimulus bill in the senate on saturday night. I do need to preface this by saying it does have to pass the house again because there were some changes made by the senate so it's not passed into law just yet but we'll go for what this bill will include when it goes through the house and i'm going to try my best to sound like i'm not rattling off just a bunch of dollar amounts but there's a danger. It might sound like that but just bear with me. There might be something in there that would be useful for you. Your family someone. So for helping the unemployed it extends that three hundred dollars a week plus the state unemployment end it makes the first ten thousand two hundred dollars of that non taxable for households making less than a hundred and fifty thousand dollars it also fully funds cobra. Health insurance premiums so that employees who have been laid off can remain on their employer plan for free. There's also going to be another round of checks fourteen hundred dollars for a single taxpayer. Twenty eight hundred couples indy. Get fourteen hundred dollars per dependent now the starts to taper off at seventy five thousand for individuals or one hundred and fifty thousand dollars for couples ended completely gets phased out at eighty thousand dollars for a single tax payer and one hundred and sixty thousand dollars for a couple it gives state and local governments three hundred fifty billion dollars to cover expenses related to covid through twenty twenty four gives schools one hundred and thirty billion for k. Through twelve in forty billion dollars for colleges and that's to help them reopen safely so parents can get back to work for businesses. they'll be twenty five billion dollars going to restaurants and bars. This max out at ten million dollars per company in five million dollars per location additionally there will be seven point two five billion for the paycheck protection program once again forty. Six billion dollars will be going to state local and federal governments to help with testing and contact tracing as well as fourteen billion dollars to help speed up. The vaccine distribution for healthcare there will be financial assistance for aca affordable care act premiums and this is just looking to get the number of people covered by insurance to increase into further incentivize. The south to expand medicaid since they're sort of the holdouts town there. The republicans are blocking that there are also increases in tax breaks to parents who have kids up to three thousand dollars per kid if their age six to seventeen and thirty six hundred dollars per kid if they're under six years old and that spread out over the twelve months according to analysis this plus the fourteen hundred dollar check would cut the number of kids in poverty by more than half. In addition there's changes to the earned income tax credit for this year in extends to people without children. And if you're looking for how much that would be for low to moderate income folks. It'll be somewhere between five hundred and forty three dollars in one thousand five hundred and two dollars. Lastly in the rental and homeowner category it gives thirty billion dollars to help low income and unemployed folks afford rent and utilities and at the state level states and tribes get ten billion dollars per homeowners. So all in all. I think thing that really struck me. Was this tweet that i saw saying that. Isn't it kind of crazy. That biden asked for a one point nine trillion dollar stimulus deal and he got a one point nine trillion dollar stimulus deal like i think that makes biden a pretty good politician. One of the main criticisms of obama was at he started out by compromising with republicans and gave them the compromise offer in the first place instead of starting out high. You can't say that for biden so far in this could be a sign of good things to come but like. I said they're hoping that this gets signed into law by the end of the week after the house passes it sometime this week.
A Look Inside The COVID-19 relief bill Passed By Senate
"The senate passed a one point nine trillion dollar covid nineteen relief. Bill here's what senate by elena abramson the senate on saturday afternoon narrowly passed a one point nine trillion dollar cove nineteen relief package a key milestone for president joe biden to ink his first legislative priority into law the avalanche of federal dollars which clock in at approximately nine percent of the country's gross domestic product includes fourteen hundred dollar checks for middle and lower income. Americans extend unemployment insurance through much of the summer and provides seventy billion dollars to increase vaccine distribution and coronavirus testing. The bill was passed entirely along party. Lines with all senate. Democrats supporting it and all republicans opposing. This nation has suffered too much for much. Too long biden said in remarks from the white house on saturday. Everything in this package is designed to relieve the suffering and to meet the most urgent needs of the nation and put us in a better position to prevail starting with beating this virus and vaccinating the country. The house which already passed version of the bill on february. twenty seventh is slated to vote on the amended. Text on tuesday before sending it to biden's desk so he can sign it into law. Here is a look at six major components of the bill direct payments for millions of americans under the senate plan individuals making up to seventy five thousand dollars in couples. Making up to one hundred. Fifty thousand dollars per year are eligible to receive a fourteen hundred dollar check individuals. Earning between seventy five thousand and eighty thousand dollars and couples. Earning between one hundred fifty thousand dollars. One hundred sixty thousand dollars will receive some of that money but not the full amount. The eligibility thresholds are a change from the house's initial version which kept the threshold at one hundred thousand dollars for individuals and two hundred thousand dollars for couples senate. Democrats lowered the eligibility for the stimulus checks to get all democrats onboard after resistance from some moderates in their party. The decision means that an estimated seventeen million americans who received a check under former president. Donald trump won't get one under biden. According to a study from a nonpartisan institute on taxation and economic policy biden said on saturday that the government will begin sending the checks to eligible americans. This month extended unemployment insurance current federal unemployment benefits. Which a lot an additional three hundred dollars per week on top of state benefits are set to expire on march fourteenth. The senate bill extends the program through september sixth at three hundred dollars per week for households. Earning under one hundred fifty thousand dollars. The first ten thousand two hundred dollars of the unemployment benefits are non taxable to prevent surprise billing at the end of the year. These were also changes from the house version of the bill which provided four hundred dollars per week through all twenty ninth. The reduction in unemployment insurance in the senate version was implemented to ensure moderate senator. Joe manchin a democrat from west. Virginia would not break with his party. According to a democratic aide expanded tax credits for families. The bill raises the child tax credit for most families in the coming year by one thousand dollars to three thousand dollars per child. It's even more for families with young children. Many can receive credit of three thousand six hundred dollars for each child under age six. All of these credits are fully refundable and some researchers say these measures could potentially help cut child poverty and half funding for state and local governments and public schools. The bill delivers a three hundred fifty billion dollar cash infusion to state and local governments and one hundred thirty billion dollars to elementary middle and high schools to help them reopen safely. Local budgets have faced steep declines in revenue as businesses remain shuttered during the pandemic last september. The brookings institute estimated that state and local revenues would decline by one hundred fifty five billion dollars in twenty twenty one hundred sixty seven billion dollars in twenty twenty one and one hundred forty five billion dollars in twenty twenty two. The money for schools is designed to help them improve their ventilation systems. Hire more janitors and reduced class sizes to conform with social distancing protocols. Democrats argued that this money was necessary to save public sector jobs and enable teachers and students to return to classrooms without risking their health. Republicans said that the funding already allocated through. Last year's relief bills was sufficient and that sending more money the state and local governments was superfluous relief for restaurants. The bill includes traditional fifty billion dollars in assistance for small businesses including more than seven billion dollars for the troubled payment protection program and a break from previous relief packages. This bill provides twenty eight point. Six billion dollars in grant relief specifically for restaurants which have been particularly decimated by the pandemic
The Biden Relief Bill: Who Gets What
"Okay. Who is getting. What in the biden. Bill perio first up is what most adults in. The country are going to get a one time payment of up to fourteen hundred dollars. This is the single biggest part of the bill. And here's where the bill stands. Now if you made less than seventy five thousand dollars either last year or the year before you will get the full amount fourteen hundred bucks beyond that if you made between five thousand and eighty thousand dollars you get a smaller amount and if you made more than eighty thousand dollars you will not get one of these checks for married couples who file their taxes together. The cutoff for getting a check is a combined. Income of one hundred and sixty thousand dollars in these checks are both the biggest and the most universal part of the bill. The exact amount of money that your household will get does depend on a few things in addition to your income. Like whether you have kids or other dependents but even so roughly eighty to ninety percent of all households in the us are gonna get checks for some amount of money and the hope is that people will spend that money to help boost the economy so next step people who are getting money in the stimulus bill. The unemployed four hundred dollars per week on top of what they would normally get from their state in unemployment benefits when there isn't a pandemic and that extra four hundred dollars. A week will last until nearly the end of august and there's a lot of people still claiming unemployment benefits each week almost nine times as many people as a year ago right before the pandemic started. That's more than nineteen million people claiming those benefits right now and a big part of the reason why there are so many is the government has expanded the range of people who can qualify for these benefits during the pandemic and the reason unemployment benefits matter for the overall economy. Is that the allow people to continue spending money while they are between jobs paying their rent buying groceries buying school supplies for their kids yet without the extra four hundred dollars. Unemployment benefits would only replace less than half of a workers lost income on average but with the extra four hundred dollars from the stimulus bill. These benefits will be replacing more than eighty five percent of the lost income for the average unemployed worker up state and local governments. What they're going to get from the bill so tax revenues for a lot of state and local governments have just deride pandemic and some of them have been forced to cut back on services that they typically provide like garbage collection law enforcement mental health and addiction treatment services and a bunch of others state and local governments have also had to lay off one point three million workers especially a lot of workers in public schools teachers administrators janitors. It's one of the hardest hit sectors of the labor market so this bill provides three hundred and fifty billion dollars for state and local governments. And actually that might end up more money than state and local governments lost during the pandemic three hundred and fifty billion dollars is above the range of estimates for how much money state and local governments will have lost through next year. But it's also true that some states and local governments are in worse shape than others and so one of the big debates in the senate is over just how to allocate this money between different states and cities. And we're gonna pass here for a second because if we stop right here just right now out of the cost of those three things that we have discussed the checks that go out to almost everybody. Stimulus checks the bigger unemployment insurance benefits and the money that goes to state and local governments. That is the biggest part of the bill. Roughly half of it around a trillion dollars is going to go to those three things combined yet and there's all kinds of interesting and important stuff and the rest of the bill to so. Here's a few more that we definitely think are worth mentioning. Starting with what parents are gonna get. Yes so parents are going to get an extra fourteen hundred dollars for each of their children and this includes adult children who parents list as their dependence. Yeah so if you are. A family of four people say to spouses and two kids. The total amount. You're gonna get in those one time. Checks is up to fifty six hundred dollars. But that's not all. The bill also increases the size of the child tax credit for one year. So parents will now be able to offset their tax bills by thirty six hundred dollars for each kid under the age of six the really young ones and by three thousand dollars for other kids who are not yet adults bottom line take that same family of four and let's say both parents make less than seventy five thousand dollars each year and let's say their two kids are very young. They're toddlers that family could get a total of nearly thirteen thousand dollars in checks and tax credits because of this bill. Okay and now. Let's look at what schools are going to get kindergarten to twelfth grade. Schools are gonna get roughly one hundred and thirty billion dollars but maybe what's most interesting is what that money is intended for. Yes so this money is not for textbooks. It is for things that make it easier for schools to reopen and operate during the pandemic. So things like improving ventilation buying more personal protective equipment and even changing the shape of a classroom so that social distancing between students is easier next up. The bill includes tens of billions of dollars for loans and grants to businesses and the industry. That's going to get the single biggest amount in grants. So that's money that does not have to be paid back is bars and restaurants yup bars and restaurants. They can prove they lost money. Last year will be eligible for up to ten million dollars each in grants and the bill has set aside a total of twenty five billion dollars for eateries and watering holes and restaurants. And though that is the most any industry is getting in this bill. Some perspective is important here last year. Bars and restaurants lost about a hundred and forty five billion dollars sales from the year before. It's a twenty percent decline and there are still nearly two and a half million fewer jobs in bars and restaurants than before the pandemic and this year knock on wood will not be as bad because people are getting vaccinated. Covid cases are coming down and more of the country is reopening still. That is a huge hole to dig out of

Retail Sales Rose Strongly in January, Driven by Stimulus
"Americans opened their wallets last month. The commerce department says retail sales jumped in the month of january after three months of declines. World's kristen flab has that story retail spending soared a seasonally adjusted five point three percent last month it was the biggest increase since june and much larger than the one percent rise wall street expected analysts. Say the six hundred dollar stimulus checks. Sent out at the very end of last year helped get americans in the buying mood beside strong sales at furniture and appliances stores. Sales jumped almost twenty four percent at department stores. Online sales soared eleven percent and spending at restaurants which have been hard hit by lockdowns rose about seven percent last month. Wednesday's report covers about a third of overall consumer spending but it does not include haircuts hotel stays and other services that have been hit hard by the pandemic
Retail sales better than expected in January
"Here to discuss. The latest figures is wall street journal. Reporter harriet tori. She covers the federal reserve and us economy farm. Our washington dc bureau. Harry thanks so for joining us. Hi so retail spending is op. And i'm wondering what people are buying. Well the re buying things across the board. I mean this month was amazing. These strong we saw a five point. Three percent. Seasonally-adjusted increase From a month earlier in every category did well which is unusual in retail sales. But there are. Some country agrees the did kind of well that was Furniture electronics we saw big increase in a lot of categories that related to the home. This is a trend that we've seen during the coronavirus. Pandemic is that people who are working from home and studying from home and just spending more time at home generally a spending a lot of money on making their home spaces better improving them. Buying things like new. Tv's new workout equipment renovating different rooms and things like that. So we definitely saw that reflected in the january retail sales report. What did you think when you saw the figure of five point three percent. I was really surprised because the economists expectations were for an increase of two percent. And of course this is coming off a pretty bad holiday season. We saw declines in retail sales in october november and december which is really unusual. Because that's normally a time. When people are out shopping and spending on halloween and thanksgiving and christmas and so on but clearly. You know economists saying what we're seeing here is the impact of six hundred dollars. Stimulus checks that. Many households received another january because this appears to be related to the stimulus payments. I want to ask you about the purpose of the stimulus. Is it meant to help. Businesses or individuals. Are both economists. Are saying that this is definitely a sign that this to municipalities to be working one concern that people had about the first round of stimulus. Checks came through in march. Two thousand twenty was that a very large share of them were saved. They went straight into savings accounts. A man appeared to be because there was just a lot of uncertainty. The unemployment rate was extremely high. People were very very cautious so they want us to take that money and put it in their bank accounts they would have just in case things got even was also a relatively large serve is used to pay down debt but we'll miss seeing now appears to be more people actually spending the money this could be reflection of the fact that vaccines beginning to roll out so people feeling might. Maybe there's light at the end of the tunnel. Also the improvement in the labor market. It seems like people who have just a bit more comfortable now as she taking that money once it hits that bank account and going and spending it on things that they need. Can you put these new sales numbers in context for us. We often see them. Revised offer down after the fact the month to month data can be volatile definitely and it is subject to larger visions and we were a revision of the december number as well but over will the signal that this report sentences. That january was a really surprisingly strong month for retail spending and it just shows the american consumers Very much in the driving seat of potential growth in the first

Is $50,000 BTC the Beginning of a Bitcoin Supercycle?
"What's going on guys. It is tuesday february sixteenth. And today we are talking about. You know it fifty thousand dollar bitcoin and specifically whether it's shows that we are in a bitcoin super cycle so i the news after a week or so of threatening the rubicon was breached this morning between seven forty five and eight am eastern time. Bitcoin punched up above fifty thousand. Now it immediately met cell wall and had a six hundred dollar candle down in is at the time of recording closer to forty nine thousand but to me that technical response is far less significant than these psychological barrier of a fifty thousand dollar being breached so today's special early breakdown is all about that. I reached out to followers this morning. Asking what topics you all thought were important for a fifty k. Show i also popped into a couple of different clubhouse chats to see what people were focused on and overwhelmingly across both of those mediums. The thing that people wanted to talk about is whether this is another indicator that we're in a bitcoin super cycle. I'm going to discuss this. It's going to be the main focus of the show. What the idea of a super cycle is where it came from what it might mean and some different ways to look at it but first let's blast through a few of the other topics folks wanted to disgust. Let's try to start with something that if not negative is sort of dismissive to be honest. It's kind of hard to find those bitcoin stomping face but here we are peter. Brant tweeted fifty. Thousand is a nice round number. That means absolutely nothing. Technically trying to sound smart just sound smart helps to define dumbness now. Let's contextualized. Peter is speaking to a trading audience and that trader audience are not supposed to in their own estimation get emotionally invested in an asset or let narrative shape. What they do. So let's give peter the benefit of the doubt and assume that that's who he's talking to however if he is truly arguing that technicals are all that matter about an asset. The easy rejoinder is that markets are by their very definition a constant give and take between narratives and technicals and frankly narratives tend to reshape the bounds that frame the upside and downside potential of those technical indicators either way for the sake of completeness i wanted to include something sort of negative but i think we can move on next. Let's discuss michael sailor. Just doing michael sailor things about five minutes before fifty thousand was breached. Sailor dropped a new press release from micro strategy long story. Short micro strategy is offering another six hundred million in debt and all the words of the press. Release our legalese. Except for this. Little line micro strategy intends to use the net proceeds from the sale of the notes to acquire additional bitcoins. Pomp summed it up perfectly when he tweeted. Michael sailor is carrying out one of the highest conviction investment thesis we've ever seen in public markets. Incredible to watch okay next. People are wondering how this happened. Or why will. I think the wise a little obvious. We saw an insane amount of positive news last week. Tesla b. and y. Mellon mastercard twitter. Deutsche bank morgan stanley. Every show for the last week has been about some type of crazy positive news. If you've been listening it's hard for that amount of positive news to not have an impact in other words. The specifics of win this fifty thousand dollar price was going to happen. Are for those technicals. That i was mentioning above to figure out but the overall momentum has clearly been in this direction. This actually gets me to another point. I was trying to articulate on twitter. We have this linear time bias. That when things happen quickly we tend to feel like that the thing that was before the you're comfortable with was the correct thing versus the new thing and the new change. That happened really fast. In other words. Bitcoin was between ten thousand. And fifteen thousand for a really long time so fifty thousand seems overvalued but what if instead based on what we now know. Bitcoin was in fact radically undervalued for that. Same ferry long time.
Is Tesla the Tip of the Bitcoin Iceberg?
"Tesla announcing today bought one and a half a billion dollars. The crypto currency tested saying it made the purchase for the ability to further diversify at maximize returns on our cash. The news sending tesla shares higher by more than a percent in bitcoin to its highest level on record so tonight we start the show with a simple question. Why why should tesla go up on this news. Why should bitcoin go up by fourteen and a half percent on this news guy. When you say well you've seen it before. We saw with micro strategies. I mean that was i think. One hundred and seventy five dollar stock prior to the offering that they did michael sale. Obviously being the ceo there. I think the stock closed over a thousand dollars today. So you know the why answer is because that's what the markets geeked up for and that's the way the market's been trading. We've seen a number of different security so to a certain extent makes and as long as bitcoin does. This grind higher those stocks will probably go up exponentially exponentially but maybe to a magnify of a one and a half or so times but it works on the downside as well. I have no idea what bitcoin is gonna do. But if we do that. Back and forth at twenty thousand that micro strategies now thousand dollars. It's probably a six hundred dollar stock. And maybe you see similar in tesla. My biggest problem is not the fact that these companies are doing it. i think. Publicly traded companies with board approvals and shareholder approval should be do anything they want in the confines of the law. It's sort of this game if occasion. You know it's elon. Musk putting on his twitter account and a bitcoin emoji. Whatever the young and say. And i'm not trying to get off my lawn. Okay boomer stuff. But i think there's i think there's a danger associated with that. He's the ceo of one of the ten largest companies in the world. I think with that heavy as ahead wears a crown. And i think he's got to think more of those things it can't just be willy nilly in my opinion. I think that's an interesting point to make but yuan. Musk had demonstrated his propensity for bitcoin. Back in december so arguably. He was driving up the price of bitcoin as the company was buying. It's not exactly you know helping his own company in terms of establishing that one and a half billion dollar purchase in terms of participating to the upside it's more so participating to the downside karen. When i heard this news i i reached out to you. Because you pro- the accounting of this and it's very interesting. Test is not necessarily a bitcoin proxy for in terms of the way it's accounting for this bitcoin purchase. No it isn't in the accounting of it says that you have to market at the price you bought it unless trades down then the market at that price. But i don't think shareholders are gonna care about that. i think they just like the idea of it I don't know when he bought it. It's sort of fascinating to me. But i do think it's actually a big deal when we talked not that long ago about the idea of investors finally feeling like they can be comfortable having some exposure to cryptocurrencies to bitcoin. That was sort of a big move it. I and there's a lot to go in that. I think we were at the very beginning of that here. S and p five hundred companies with the cash on their balance sheets contemplating using some of that to buy bitcoin. He also mentioned potentially gold and gold. Etf's in the tesla released. But that's kind of amazing to me as well so we haven't even seen yet the institutional buying come through at all i don't know if every s and p five hundred. Cfo's going to want to do this. They've been pretty conservative for a pretty long time. Buying gold wouldn't have seen that crazy. And yet i don't think very many of them did it so i mean i'm long so i'm glad it's trading up it. I do think what could go wrong from here. I don't know maybe a tad frost
A big milestone in the Senate
"The senate passed the budget for this package. it is a big milestone. but if you could talk about what that means exactly because it's not necessarily that they pass this package but it is a key procedural step here talk a little bit about that right so what happened earlier in the week. Is that the house. And the senate democrats passed budget. Resolutions will the resolution to basically these budget. Resolutions is the process Where the committees in this case the senate budget committee. That's run by bernie sanders. They look at They they go through the budgets and they increase decrease spending Dead and the ideas that you get busy. You get what you want out of a bill in through this reconciliation just by fiddling with the numbers of the budget and it's a first step process to in its case pass biden's what point nine trillion stimulus package That that he's been wanting to get since he's been in office right so let's let's break it down what. What exactly is in this package. So the one point nine trillion package the american rescue blind. It has a lot of the improvements over the cares act. Plan was passed almost this time last year. Last march when the pandemic started Obviously the big one that everybody is interested in is d. stimulus checks. This is gonna be fourteen hundred dollar stimulus check instead of six hundred dollars. Twelve hundred dollars a previous ones. But it's not the big two thousand one That's well that they that the democrats were talking about in recent months Then there's also increase in unemployment aid the there's a weekly a bonus check that gets sent unemployed workers that's going to be increased to four hundred dollars and it's going to last until the end of september right now tony lasting until mid march for three hundred dollars then variety of other Extra provisions for rental assistance saudi eviction moratorium and eight for the Stay states and local governments more money for child tax credits and also more money for vaccine right as i understand it. A lot of funding will go towards setting up distribution centers. Porting Folks who actually running these vaccinations senators and really just sort of getting more infrastructure built out for deploying more vaccines to more people which is something we all wanna
Here's the new Democratic plan for $1400 stimulus checks
"Over the course of the pandemic america's spent about four trillion dollars supporting its economy. That's pressing nearly twenty percent of gdp before the crisis. Henry curve is our economics editor. The big question is how much adds to that support for the remainder of two hundred twenty one. And so what is in mr biden's plan as it stands now well. The total proposal from the white house is four one point nine trillion dollars of new spending. So almost half as much again is what's been spent already and actually the biggest item in that is for these. Nearly universal checks go to most americans. The biden proposal would send an upper forty nine hundred dollars to most americans and that would top the six hundred dollars they received as a result of the last stimulus bill in december to make a total of two thousand dollars which was a number that was popularized by president trump. Democrats seized on. So that's the biggest item but there's lots of other stuff in there as well as three hundred and fifty billion dollars state and local governments. That has money for vaccines testing. There's somebody to help schools reopened and there's a program in that fight child poverty by increasing america's choice tax credit a near universal hand out for families with children and republicans have have made a counter offer on the order of six hundred billion dollars. What's missing from that while they would tone down the checks as they called universal handouts make them much more means tested. That plan doesn't include any new money for state and local governments. The republicans have always said that democrats just want to use the federal government bailout states who are spending too much so they don't include that money and that's quite a big chunk and they trimmed and some other areas as well they do still have the same amount for vaccines testing and healthcare and all this discussion is going on just a few months after the the most recent round of economic aid i mean. Is it already really necessary. So what i do is i. Divide into two buckets. There's one set of things which is essentially like disaster relief. Spending the unemployment insurance extension for instance is replacing lost incomes of workers who have being turfed out their jobs through no fault of erron and are in need but then sometimes the debate about stimulus is framed as what does the economy need from a top down perspective to sort of get gdp growing again. And that's why. I think the debate is a little bit more confused. Gdp is currently down because the hospitality sector hotels restaurants and entertainment venues and transportation. Just not operating close to capacity because social distancing and it doesn't matter how much you pause that's not going to change immediately so then the question is. How much stimulus does the economy to recover. Once you can reopen and that's quite harder due to because there's a lot of debate about how quickly you're going to see things rebound wants the happens because there's so much stimulus in the economy already. What are the downsides to passing the one point nine trillion dollar bill if that number is as you say too big. So that's the big question of the moment. A lot of people think that the economic era has shifted in a way that makes that freed exploring free interest rates silo and of course to a point that is true. I think the danger is that if you do more and more stimulus that you won't overheat the economy now because so much of a shutdown but when the economy reopens maybe lots of pent-up damore doubt that so the cost is that you might get a burst of inflation later when the stimulus is if you like unleashed fully that said we have undershot our inflation targets for a long time the american economy certainly deal with a one off burst of inflation but perhaps the way to look at. It is the white house. Joe biden. They want to spend on other things as well as this bill. They also want to spend on infrastructure. Which could be bailed running into the trillions of dollars to so you may want to hold some of your firepower back in reserve for infrastructure or other priorities and so if that number is simply too big than than to think of it in that top down way what do you think a good number would be so. I think it's very difficult to come up with a good number from the top down perspective because of the uncertainty so to give you a idea of the scale here the congressional budget office. Which is america's official congressional forecaster just projected that the shortfall in america's gdp from his potential with the end of next year will be about one point three percent. The biden proposal for one point nine trillion is six times that gap. So it's really massively overshooting. So i think the right way determined how much to spend is just to look at it at disaster relief from baltimore perspective. Guard line by line and say what is necessary. I think the unemployment insurance boost is definitely necessary. The vaccine spending was obviously very high return. But when you start getting into the ferry generous checks. I think the case is weak and that also goes for the money for state and local governments at the start of the crisis. There was a lot of concern. The state and local governments in america would lose a lot of tax revenue as a result of the economy shutting down by natural fact. They've done a lot better than expected so their budgets have held up. So i think the right way to look at it would be that you should do is necessary for as long the pandemic assists and you'd probably get some close to a trillion dollars and then later if the economy needs more widespread stimulus because growth is disappointing. Maybe dan that's the time to do more. By the moment. I think is quite difficult to build a case for full nearly two trillion dollars and certainly the democrats are struggling. To make that case. I mean having said what you think woodwork What do you actually think is going to happen. Well that's quite difficult to judge at the moment. So there's this interesting trade off. The democrats will per year more or less. Have the power to override or circumvent the republican filibuster in the senate so they can get through that plans even if there's republican opposition. So they have if you like a free hit and they could use it on getting this one point nine trillion proposal through that said it's not just republicans that the white house got to worry about the moderate democrats in the senate may not support the full bill so it will probably come down a bit anyway. I think one point on trillions quite unlikely. But if they did compromise with the republicans on a small number they could save that free. Hit if you like for some other priority or indeed for passing more stimulus later. Should it prove necessary. So i think it depends on the outcome of that political judgment the white house. I think probably that they are sufficiently far away from the republicans they will use reconciliation. That's the procedure to get around the filibuster. So you will get a large stimulus. But i still think in the end is gonna come down a little bit from the one hundred and
Which One Would You Choose?
"To where you oh no one money and it can start out by you know paying off your credit card debt. Pay off your personal loans paying off your student loans and last but not least pay off the mortgage. Start enjoying your paycheck. I'm not talking about leaving a couple hundred bucks or thousand dollars leftover at the end of the month. I'm talking about really enjoying your own paycheck on a monthly basis. To where you don't have to worry about money being in the bank and last what about having money in savings and i'm not talking about two hundred and fifty dollars or four hundred bucks. I'm talking about a thousand dollars and then building up that that savings account to be six months worth of living expenses. Now if you had that. And god forbid envision this piece in this. I don't like to go down the dark path but twenty twenty taught us a lot about you know ourselves in what's going on. Let's say you're going along. Happy joy everything is great and unfortunately you lose your job and you're out looking for a job and you just can't find one. You still have to pay your bills. But you don't have very much in savings and what you get an unemployment six hundred dollars a week. Eight hundred dollars a week somewhere around. There doesn't cut it. So what do you do. You keep looking for a job. You keep going through the process but at the end of the day. You still have bills to be paid. You call your creditors in your creditors are willing to give you a forbearance or deferment. But that doesn't help you because there's one thing that's happening interest is still crewing on your accounts so you don't have a payment do but next month your payments can be larger. Because you still have a balance. That's do that balances accruing interest in your probably charging on it or using the account. And then guess what happens. You have a larger payment the next month. So how you gonna for the larger payment if you couldn't afford the smaller one and then unfortunately some of these bills will go into collections in in go further down the road and i don't wanna go there. Here's what i really wanna paint you guys this way you're going along you have your dream job and you're making good money and you don't owe anybody a nickel a- dime you are financially and debt free to where you're putting away twenty percent of your paycheck on a monthly basis. You have that rainy day fund. That's put in place. God forbid something happens and you're not living paycheck to paycheck. And guess what you have. You have another savings account for your fund days to where you can take the family on vacations cruises Wherever you want to go and you don't owe anybody a single thing through this whole process. Now stop in. Imagine how that would feel to where you could not. Oh anybody a single dime or a nickel. How does that make you feel makes me feel. It makes me feel great. I it makes me feel like i'm alive.
Should You Rent Live Streaming Gear?
"On this episode. You will learn why you should consider renting livestreaming gear before you make that final purchase decision. So gem let's talk about renting livestreaming gear. Yeah i think a lot of times. We make the assumption that we have to buy this stuff. But if you're in business especially if you're a business owner you're in the business of live streaming. You actually have some options that the the hobbyist may be necessarily doesn't and that is you can lease equipment. You can rent equipment for a short period of time. I mean i have a friend that runs a video production company. He doesn't own any of his cameras. He goes and rents them whenever he gets a job for a client. Because one thing that happens with gear is this stuff gets upgraded all the time and so sometimes trying to keep up with the latest and the greatest goes into one of your favorite phrases. Yes and it's a gas gear acquisition syndrome and basically. It's the fact that you know when we buy a piece of equipment we then wanna keep buying because we see what other people have or what kind of they're using for their live streaming setup. Now to your point jim. I mean when you buy equipment you know. It's it's an asset appreciable asset. So it's like buying a car. For example you buy it and then it's gonna depreciate over time so for example if you bought that thousand dollar camera over time you know it's going to pretty much worthless it's going to be you've got time working against it and you also have the technology as well because technology changes extremely rapidly. You know it changes so quickly that that you know to the point where you buy something in like maybe in a month it's outdated because every about every year there's always something new coming out so this might be. You know a good reason why you should rent livestreaming gear so jim. Let's talk about just the various parts about renting equipment. I mean as you know. Yes people can go out and they can you know if they have. I think keating is like let's start with budget. I mean we rent. Why should somebody rent gear. I mean they definitely show up budget right. That's part of it absolutely. And i think and so. That's where renting right gives you that ability to you know it's like it's like a car taking a test drive you can try before you buy. I mean We're going to share some links a little bit later. Some of these places. You could rent Stuff for as little as three days. So you know be focused that you're going to actually you know you know 'cause how many times do we buy a new piece of equipment and then it sits there for a little bit before we start using it and so this kind of makes you think. Hey i if i if i'm serious about using this piece a year i'm actually going to you know. Take it out use it. Make sure it's it's doing what i think it can do or wanted to do. And so sometimes you're gonna find out that that's not what it is advertised that it would do isn't always what ends up being the case and it doesn't do what you were hoping for a one great example of this you know their cameras so when you're running a livestream you may want to use. Will you want to have a camera and a lot of people to start with the first option the webcam sorry the the built in webcam. And then when they're ready they're like hey i want another will just having. The webcam is not the only piece of equipment you need when you have for example if you're using a built in webcam you need a webcam you need lighting for example to then make that webcam look good and you know those webcams they can only do. So much so might be choppy because it's basically contingent on your computer so for example. If that's not good enough in your okay. I won't improve that. Well then i'm going to go to a webcam and actual external webcam extra webcams limitations. And then you go up another notch. If you're like hey want to. I want to be able to switch different things for example different cameras or i want to have different angles will a webcam can only do so much. Then you need to move into. Dsl are mirrorless camera and those then for example require more equipment to actually run the equipment. So it's it's a slippery slope once you start using different types of equipment. They're always going to be additional costs for example if you buy diesel our camera. Hey it's oh. I can just go buy one off the shelf. But here's the thing. It's not just about buying off the shelf. You then have to buy the right lens. Some of them include lenses which is great. But hey then we'll hey. How do i put this into my computer and that gets us into unietd capture card so as you can see it can quickly spiral out of control and so this is a really really really good reason why people need to consider renting livestreaming gear There's so much out there. And depending on what. Your setup is what your budget is you can easily go and drop immune if you wanted to buy just a basic camera. Six hundred dollars a camera. Two hundred dollars on a capture card to be able to plug the camera into your computer. So we're eight hundred dollars. Roughly right there Let's see what else you need. They need probably an audio interface or microphone. Sorry audio interface or mixer. So that's what one hundred one hundred fifty dollars till like five or six hundred dollars. That's really more bare minimum. So i think we're what that's probably around fifteen hundred sixteen hundred dollars right there and then. Hey i want improve my audio. I can go by mike for one hundred dollars but you know again then. I have to have a by the mike. Well then i have to have the armed. Attach it while the arm is another hundred. So you know you're at what That's that's over two thousand dollars right there. And that doesn't include the software so easily you've reached twenty five hundred three thousand dollars so some of the benefits obviously like to renting this gears. That will if you don't have the cash then. Maybe you rent a piece of equipment that you need. You know that you need and use it temporarily and you use it to film all of your videos at once and then you return the equipment versus. I dropped three thousand dollars. And then i have to actually spend the time learning it in also making sure that it works how i needed to work. You know. there's a whole process at it right job. Oh absolutely and then the other thing you may start to find an and it was funny. I was A guy guys said this the other day it's like if you have one dollar lighting and thousand dollar camera you've basic aren't going to have a one dollar camera because you didn't take into consideration the other stuff that you need to make that camera work right. You know. I mean sometimes like we have people that wanna have green screens. And they don't have the lighting and so they're backdrop actually looks worse than if they just had a plane wall behind them. And so you know reading this stuff can really give you a feel for like. Is this really. What's going to move the needle for me. I mean you know. We've always talked about getting better one percent of the time so this is a big deal when you kind of as you're when you when you've got gas you really gotta sometimes take a step back and really say. Is this really going to help my business. What's the plan behind it. And so you know and and and you may find that your space that you're live streaming from isn't really a set up in a way to properly use that gear right if you've got you know like i'm bringing in a second camera but now when you look at the lighting it's like oh my backdrop looks horrible. My walls not you know so maybe you want to improve the status of your studio before you go one by year but then even renting the gear will let you say oh. This isn't going to work quite like. I thought you know. Cut your. it really is a way to kind of. Cut your losses temporarily until you're ready to take that next step and there are a couple of different approaches. You can take this as i mentioned earlier. If you're you know if you're a type a person you're a planner and you've got everything ready like you know for example what your videos are going to film are and you've got them scripted out. It would make sense if you don't have all the equipment go and go to a rental place and we'll share some of those here and few minutes but go to a place that you can rent equipment from and tell them. Hey you know what this is. What i'm looking to do for the most part. They're going to know their stuff inside now and they're going to be able to also sort of give you a bit of a consultation they're gonna be able to recommend what might pair well

"six hundred dollar" Discussed on The Droid Life Show
"Verizon excluse that's got to be like a six hundred dollar phone wholesale sure I sure sixty yeah I don't know is the Kin Samsung Price. A ten eighty p displayed blade phone at a thousand bucks can't really do that right you can't I will find them and I will destroy them like they. They can't do that. They can't be doing that.

"How're you doing? Well, there's a lot on the to do list though. And I'm wondering if I can stretch one thing off, let's do it. All right. What all my daughter had a part time job last year. She's only fifteen and she didn't earn six hundred dollars. She was just under the six hundred dollar limit. We had previously opened a Roth IRA, and I did the parent match. And so she was able to contribute to that. But because under six hundred dollars, I think that means she doesn't have to file a tax return. So should if you're gonna do a Roth. She can do a return she can do one for free and take like two minutes. And so she should file because she has. Yeah. And the Roth is so advantageous to her that it's worth doing, and she can only do the Roth even what you match it cannot exceed what she earned, right? We opened up a year ago. And so she put in five hundred dollars a year ago and then five hundred dollars because I did the match with her, but she still didn't hit six hundred dollars. So I'm wondering if there is a requirement for her to file because of the Roth even though she didn't hit the six hundred dollars. Or is it just a nice thing to do to get back the twenty five dollars or so that she put in for? So my understanding is that to be. Properly eligible for Iraq. You got to file a return? Okay. And there may be a someone who does tax or CPA enrolled agent or CPO does taxi says, I'm out of my mind, but my understanding is that is a requirement to do the Roth is that you do file their return. But again. It'll be free to file, and I promise it'll take two seconds. You know, you can file a small return like that right on your smartphone. If I remember, right. You could also go to irSgov and click on free file, and there's nothing to it to do. Kids return. No, I did that last year with the IRS free file now is there any reason that I would have to go with the same provider that I picked last year. Absolutely not you can use anybody on the free file list. Okay. And also there's credit karma tax. But I don't know they allow child returns that credit karma tax is free for any level of income. But in her case, the easiest would be Bill.

"Credit? If your turn six hundred dollars shoes, I dunno. Oh, no, totally for you. Absolutely. Did. Oh, no sorry. Those going to be so funny that you went and researched. It I didn't research it. I just I read the headline of it literally the top blurb, it says PayLess shoe store open store. So I got the full thing from reading the blurb at the top of them. I did it and thought it would be funny to act out like I bought a six hundred dollar pair of shoes. But I guess not so much of policies. Nope. Who wasn't flying at all? So. Okay. Well, then let's have a serious talk about this. Like what why would start interesting? Hobart? So funny. It was it was hilarious. Like completely took the that's like me guessing a punchline your joke. That's exactly what happened here, but we did the earlier with ten gallon hat. Remember? No, not the same. Okay. Look, we need to have this talk. Then. So if I put something in the doc, right? You feel free to read it, right? Like, go ahead and read the John Challe thing if you want to or whatever, you know, do that because I don't want to ruin the surprise. And I didn't even put a fucking link to the article in the Google duck. So that you would not know what it was. And you told me you didn't know in. Then you went in looked it up. Shit. I don't know how I found out about it. Maybe I saw it on Reddit or something. I don't think I looked at all asked you if you knew about it, and you said, no. And I thought this will be great to talk about as a fresh new thing on the podcast while I'm sorry. Okay. I mean, here's my whole thing. Now. Right. Why did that ruin it for you? Because is it can we not talk about it and have fun with it? Even if I know about it if I knew you were going to know about it before the podcast started. Yes. Uh-huh. But you can't now because I did know about it, right? Because there's no genuine reaction now. But there's not gonna be genuine reaction every time to stuff, you know. Like if we talk about something heavy that happened. We talk about the E coli thing. You know, everyone knows what think but like, I don't know. Look, I'm sorry that I looked it up. I thought it was going to be a fun bit that we could do or what an asshole John Lewis's. But no, it's now like look childish Danielle is, but it's okay. I mean, I don't think it's that. I just like this. This is my thing. I'm glad we're having this. I think it's good that we can fight on the podcast about this shit too, though. Because it's like how we need to figure out how we're going to run this too. So in future, if you put something that ach, you don't want me to read it. Correct. Okay. I will not read anything you put in the dock. So that I can be genuinely surprised, but what you bring forward. Sound good? Thank you. You're welcome. Do you want to talk anymore about this topic? Well, I mean. For you kid talk over. Why was that interesting to you? What was about? That. Was funny is hilarious because you know, influencers are like. So they got influencers like Instagram influencers stuff. Had people that they paid money to come in. And like talk about how amazing these shoes were when they were really like twenty dollars were willingly hinting over three hundred dollars. Sure now. So did they wash the logos off of them and stuff they rebranded it as Polisi Shinka? They even started an Instagram account for the whole thing. Like got a really nice luxury storefront. They went all out on this thing. Very nice. So that's interesting that they only let influencers come in. Well, it makes me think like they probably maybe they found people that only had like a thousand followers, and we're like these people wanna be influencers or whatever. Well. Actually, influencing market marketing. It's sometimes better to get influencers that don't have as big of a following affordable, and their followers usually are more dedicated to them that makes sense kind of like mine, I only have one follower. And it's my mom, but she's really into it. So that's good. So maybe they should hit me up. Give me some shoes or at least buy back the ones I bought earlier. That'd be nice. I think it's interesting..

"Six hundred dollar parachute. Is I might not a single person. Not a single person said anything. I'm also interested to know if they put out new new shoes that they were trying to have more trendy because my problem with PayLess, you know, I'm I'm all for like cheaper shoes. That's typically why I buy a lot of target. But I think that they are typically more on trend. They have cuter. Nice to me than pay less died. So I'm curious shoes work, you they work you. They had heels that were colorful and. Yeah. So definitely worked you. They were way cuter than what you normally. See I think they must have had shoes that are not necessarily in their other stores because when I go I typically see things that I think or maybe super trendy like a year ago or a few months ago, right? They're always a little bit behind, and I feel like if you're an influence or someone who keeps up with trends, you would notice that. So they must have put new stock out to try in full people by some of the shoes work you. But it'll be in China studies commercials, and they come out either pay less. I it. I think I told you guys this Ivan as much as I used to buy pal issues a lot I they used to have a location that was right in my town. So it was literally right upstairs. More I worked. So I would go. It was like, very convenient. Now they've closed so many stores I've been inside a PayLess for a while. So I don't know how the designs of change. But I do know that they were trying to upgrade their materials. And I think that's what really makes the difference is what kind of materials are used where it's real leather fake leather, obviously will help readable some of the stuff is that they make. So I think that the attempt was from the PayLess of old to try to make it a little more higher end and to bring in better materials. But, but yeah, so these people were were shocked at amazed and horrified probably that they bought PayLess, shoes and were tricked. So keep your eyes out for those PayLess commercials. They'll be they'll be on the way to your television. I feel like we're gonna see Kim Kardashian like scream with horror and run out. Run out of pays like the accelerated her. She's like running. It is the D J V show at.
"six hundred dollar" Discussed on The MacCast
"To be that big of a deal in terms of the configuration. And if you wanna save a little bit of money, you can upgrade the ram. So, you know, go with eight gigabytes of ram, and then get ram after the fact, and and install it yourself. You do have that option with the MAC mini, which is a nice thing. But I'm hearing from a lot of MAC mini, folks, including I got this comment from listener, Chris Chris from Houston area. I'm a longtime listener just wanna get feedback on the mechanize -ment. I was really cited just as you about the new mkx many. I'm I've been waiting for the replace my two thousand twelve mini that's been you know, aging and the only concern I have was the pricing always of the memory and storage upgrades. I currently the two thousand twelve with sixteen gigs at a quad core. I seven that that's been working great. I've been meaning Ovalles one terabyte. So they like the same so evil a sixty curly as low as one hundred sixty seven dollars for the saying of model. I also take the EMA of that the seventy actually win is about two hundred seventy dollars. Well, apple one six hundred dollars for one survey. Fifty and unfortunately, as you mentioned, the no it sold of mop replaceable, at least they made the memory replaceable. It goes the same thing thirty to the memory from apple six hundred dollars while you can buy some, you know, party memory for less than half of that. So I am a saying apple to make some profit, but they buy wholesale. So they're paying less than what I'm seeing retail. And I don't really think they need to make that much money on this stuff. I plan on the game buying probably the the six or seven, you know, with with the one terabyte, I guess, I don't have a choice since I got a lot of enlarged iphoto library the music library. And I'm gonna be getting the minimum memory Nate. Exulting upgrading though at late at time to thirty. Hoping sixty four for what I'm doing. So anyway, but I'm excited about that. I also liked it you Meko care. So I have a two thousand thirteen MAC pro that or says 'fine, so I'm gonna stick with them. Not my primary. I like to have my MAG many terabytes, I think he almost five local have all my logo. I don't have to have everything in the cloud. Haven't local with timeline backup, saying marble walls. So anyway, joining show and thing or you sure what happened there. But for some reason that message got cut off. But I think you were finishing up Chris. And again, as I mentioned, I think the pricing. Yeah. It's a premium. I think it's something we just have to recognize that we pay as part of, you know, people like to call dabble tax, but it's just that premium price that we pay. I just wish that apple didn't kind of have this false. It's almost like a false bottom that I think, you know, they should've just charged fourteen hundred dollars for the new for the new MAC, mini and called it. What it was in configured it in a way that I think is a good base configuration. Like, I said sixteen gig. Sarim and at least two hundred fifty six gigabyte SSD, and then let people go up from there. And then it wouldn't be. So I think as painful, but you know, I I have to say I would consider, you know, if you wanna save the money, I think the best thing to do is maybe go with a little less SSD storage. And this by an external driver and external esus D that you can add on additional storage at a more. You know? No, less premium price, and that way, you can keep your boot volume in your apps running quickly and fast..
