Door Dash Shares Fall 16 % After Release of Company's First Earnings Report
"Shares of jordache falling sixteen percent on friday after the company's first earnings report as a public company revenue was higher than expected but door dash lost hundreds of millions of dollars. Ron shouldn't a business like this. Be doing well at a time when food delivery is higher than normal. They're doing well but it's an expensive business to run and just haven't reached the level yet that they expect to see that that that path to profitability that relatively early stage companies like to talk about a little context. The ipo in december was priced at one. O two went up around percents the first day if you recall for somewhere in the high one fifty s today as you said first quarterly report as a public company. It was mixed results solid guidance with soft revenue up two hundred and twenty percent total orders of two hundred and thirty percent obviously covert. Is the main driver. There reported a loss of as you said of several hundred million. Three hundred. Twelve million dollars for the corridor That was bigger than last year's loss of one hundred and thirty four million so increased expenses lower profitability there. They did have adjusted ebitda. That was positive so cash flow was positive at ninety. Four million so that. That's one bright spot. The guidance expects fewer customer orders reduced or frequency smaller average orders in the back half of the year as the vaccine rolls out allows people to get back to restaurants again. I don't think we should be surprised about that. There was some artificial growth here built in because we were all stuck at home. It doesn't mean the door. Jordache isn't relevant and doesn't have a business model that will make sense in the future but it's going to go back to a more normal business. Looks like for them

"We are excited to have patrick lane today. Patrick is the director of products at compton. And we've done a few webinars with him in the past he always does a great job providing us updates on come tears certifications so excited to have you back patrick A little bit about his background. He directs the it workforce skills certifications come to you including security plus pen test plus c y plus and casper plus he assisted the us national cyber security alliance also known as the ncsa to create the lockdown. You're logging campaign to promote multi factor. Authentication nationwide us also implemented a wide variety of it projects including an internet and help desk for eleven thousand end users. Patrick is an armed forces. Communications electronics association lifetime member born and raised on us military bases and has authored and co authored multiple books including hack proofing lennox a guide to open source security so a fantastic guests with us today. I'm excited to pass it off to patrick here in just a moment after we review the agenda so today we will touch on what is security plus Patrick talk about the baseline cybersecurity skills. The job roles and growth indicators. We'll talk about the differences between s wise zero six zero one versus the five. Oh one and kind of some of the updates. There will talk about the exam details and then as mentioned i will pass it off to patrick for questions. So feel free to submit those questions using the qna panel At anytime so with that I'm going to go ahead and give give the control over to patrick here to get us started. Thank you everyone. My name is patrick lane. And as thank you for introducing me. I'm the product manager for competition cybersecurity certifications as a director. I work a lot with the industry and within comp tia in to ensure that our exams are meeting the needs of the industry security plus as one of our largest certifications of all comp. Tia in fact. It's our number one certification and so one of the reasons why people are coming to security plus is because of the skills that it offers and the fact that employers are hiring people who have security plus social security plus will help you get a job in it and cybersecurity so when we look at the certification we have to remember that security plus as an entry level certification exam it was released in two thousand two and it's updated every three years it assesses the baseline or core technical skills required to secure networks software hardware devices essentially it teaches you the basics to securing anything that's attached to a network or the internet. It's a broad range of cybersecurity skills as you can imagine. A any skills are used for high performance on the job so people are coming to take security plus because it proves that they can do the job and employers will know that they could get the job done so the it certification in general is very valuable also security plus appears nearly ten percent of all job ads in the united states and right now sixteen percent of the entire workforce has security plus and we have millions of people who have taken our commttiee exams around the globe. In the last three years. There have been a lot of changes in cybersecurity. Probably all aware of the industry continues to grow their continued to be more jobs available. There continued to be not enough people to fill those jobs and in fact in some cases employers are looking to icy certifications employers are looking to it certifications in lieu of a college degree. Four jobs. That are hard to hire for. They would rather hire someone with the bachelor degree and assert if they could but in this day and age or enough phenomenal time of human history.
Global cases falling. Is it the vaccines or something else?
"And around the world with starting to see cases full and they've been falling for a couple of weeks. Now which is great news outside of australia out. A wonderful little bubble here. The pandemic's obviously Causing a lot of havoc overseas. And so the question is norman. Is this just the tail end of a pandemic curve that we would have expected anyway or are we starting to say the vaccine at work. Now the answer is nobody can be very sure. But what i can say. Is that in people. Want to go back in the health. Report podcast. I interviewed chris. Murray of the institute of health metrics evaluation university of washington seattle and they're they're amongst the best models internationally of the pandemic and i think it was in november. He predicted that you would see. At the end of january beginning of february. They predicted that the pandemic would fall off. Are we mentioned this. On corona cast as well didn't we at the beginning of the year. Yes yes and the and he was saying that was independent of vaccine so in other words they weren't factoring in the vaccine at that point. Vaccines were really just getting going at that point and it was hard to know how how is going to evolve. And you where you were gonna get maximum penetration of vaccine so it was early days in the vaccination strategy so they didn't really factor it in his feeling. Was i think from memory that this is partly seasonal. The maximum effect winter had been reached. Even though there's obviously a lot of cold weather to go and that he felt that was the reason. And you have to assume that vaccination may well be starting to have any faked remember cases around the world. Very because usually it's somebody who symptomatic who's going to have a test and that becomes a case of covid nineteen but it's mixed in recent cases in there as well so it's the the definitions vary from country to country but nonetheless you would expect the vaccine to reduce the number of people. Coming forward for testing was symptomatic disease. This probably would have happened anyway without vaccination and it's going to accelerate presumably with it. Yeah i mean we've had millions and millions of vaccines all that now in the data that we were talking about a few weeks ago out of israel seem to indicate that we did a few weeks. People had a fairly good protection from the virus off the vaccination and so yeah the world health organization the night before last said that sixteen percent decline compared to the previous week intensive case numbers. And also very heartening li a ten percent decline in the death right from the previous week as well a lag obviously to the deaf rate or the number of deaths and i think that what we still don't have a fix on is what the covid pandemic is doing in low income countries. And we just need to remember that within low income countries this is not just a an ethical and humanitarian issue. This is a selfish issue for us as well. That new variance can emerge from low-income countries. If the pandemic is still running relatively unchecked in those countries. And if that's the case and you've got the fall is where they're doing more you're seeing is more. They're doing most testing. We don't have full visibility in what's going on in low income countries and the pandemic continues and the effect of vaccines is not kicking in. Because they're not vaccinating then you've still got the virus circulating with all the mutants that are being thrown off and those can spread and if we want control this pandemic and stop new variants emerging. We've got to immunize low-income countries. With a very high degree of probability. It's not just for their sake. It's for our six two. Yeah absolutely the virus. Can't mutate on. Its iron at cop mutai if it's sitting on a bench top boy. It can only mutate when it's in your body replicating and the more people it's replicating in the more opportunities. it has to mutai. That's right and most of these mutations will be harmless mutations like the one we were one we were talking about all last year but now the risk is that the mutants that the the the vars throwing off remember the virus does not have a brain. So it's not intentionally doing. This is throwing off mutants and four. The pressure of evolution is directing some mutants to survive. Where others couldn't your social distancing you'll get mutants that are surviving which can get around social distancing which means they're more contagious like the u k variant and as we vaccinate so you've mutants that are resistant to the vaccine will start to preferentially survive. So we just gotta get immunization out as quickly as possible
New York City Covid Vaccine Disparities Revealed in ZIP Code Data
"One of the big challenges in distributing the coach vaccine is trying to ensure that they don't disproportionally go to the most communities and as more people get vaccinated in the united states. We're getting more and more data about who's getting their shots. I and the data coming out of cities is well. It's painting a fairly consistent picture in the neighborhoods with the highest death rates from cova which tend to be poorer and more black and brown folks. Fewer people are getting vaccinated by contrast in wider more affluent neighborhoods. Vaccination rates tend to be higher even though a smaller percentage of people in those neighborhoods have lost their lives the virus. So here's an example map in new york city. We have data by zip code there. We should note. The same dynamic has also played out in washington. Dc and other cities so in this section of manhattan's upper east side. That's a wealthy neighborhood. There have been one hundred sixty six deaths from covid per hundred thousand people so far in that zip code sixteen percent of adults vaccinate which is great. That's good we want people to be back but now let's look at say brooklyn's east new york neighborhood much much poor much much much less white in that soco there have been a staggering eight hundred and thirty seven deaths per one hundred thousand people. Think about that. It has been hit so so much harder by the virus but in that neighborhood only five percent of adults have been fully vaccinated compared to the sixteen percent of the upper east side. Now the city not breakdown vaccine recipients by race or account for the percentage of people in a given zip code were eligible but again the broad picture. Here's pretty clear. See playing out across the city and across the country in fact in some poor neighborhoods. Only two percent of adults are fully vaccinated. Well vaccination rates are fourteen fifteen sixteen percent and richer neighborhoods. This is a huge in central problem to solve and discuss it on join. Shell gave stolberg new york times. Washington correspondent covering health policy has been writing about the vaccine rollout specifically so let's just start with the phenomenon. I want to sort of check against myself here that this is something that's happening. That's showing up data that is being produced around the country. It's not just a particularity of new york. No no this is absolutely happening around the country and you can see it in the cdc's national data. I think nationally last week African americans who account for more than eighteen percent of the population were eleven percent of those vaccinated. And we're seeing in disparities around the country here in washington where i am We had a situation where people from wealthy white neighborhoods were going into black neighborhoods to go to clinics that primarily serve underserved people to get vaccinated and it is creating a real disparity and it is completely contradictory to what president biden has said he wants which is a vaccine and a covid response that is centered on racial equity. So there it seems that there's a few factors at play here for why this is a it seems to me that there's a demand issue right is sort of people's willingness and i think we can get to that later. The first thing just seems to me it's one of those situations where a certain amount of social capital connections time or resources to other people to go through the logistics of the planning and the websites use tending to advantage. More affluent. folks is. That is that sort of your understanding of what's driving this yes. I think there's two things that are driving it in one is exactly what you say. Which is more apple and people tend to have the resources to the computers savvy the time frankly transportation to be able to get vaccinated but another big reasons vaccine heston san. We know that people of color particularly african americans are more hesitant than whites to be vaccinated in part because of the legacy of systemic racism and Government experiments like the horrific experiment that still linger in the mind. So there is that issue of hesitancy that the government is going to have to overcome. It wants to see people of color vaccinated. Yeah this is a december pull from. Ap now that's this is know almost two months old now but we we saw huge has seen the beginning huge racial disparity in terms of folks. You know fifty three percent of white people saying they're gonna get vaccinated while in twenty four percent of black folks thirty four percent of hispanic hispanic respondents now. Those numbers have changed a little bit. Even though there are still racial disparities out there examples of places where this is being dealt with forthrightly in a way that is that is sort of reintroducing a kind of equity here well i think that's hard to know in one reason that's hard to know is that the government doesn't really have great data on race the people who are vaccinated but more broadly one of the states. That is actually a really good job. Back stating across the board is west. Virginia and it has back stated i think eighty three percent of its vaccines have been administered in. It's far ahead of most states in terms of effective and quick backseat distribution.
High-Velocity Market Propels Zillow
"Shares of zillow are up sixteen percent this morning. Sixteen percent on the back of what has been a really good year for zillow stock zillow and red fin which isn't exactly in the same business but it's definitely in the same neighborhood. They have had spectacular spectacular years. And i have to go back. And i hate doing this because i hate giving tom gardner credit. Tom gardner was so early on zillow as being a business. That is that that is well suited to how we're going to be shopping in the future. And they are spot on and you know. They came in with revenues of seven hundred. Eighty nine million dollars. A great geographic dispersion. They've obviously benefited from the in migration. They've obviously benefited from the fact that people are making have really gotten to the point now where they're moving out of cities your they're moving to places more out of desire rather than economic necessity but yeah in always are really really great quarter for them and i think that this is just the beginning for zillow. Certainly the indicated as much in terms of their guidance because their revenue guidance for twenty twenty one was definitely upbeat and that was hot. It was hot and you know the housing market. I mean rich barton was talking about what he referred to as the high velocity market and just one set of numbers around that this past december on average existing home sold in seventeen days and a year prior the average was forty two days da even though huckabee houses in our area getting sold well. And it's you know. I think that this is one more economic data point. That is grist for the mill for people who are banging the drum of the stock market. Being overheated yeah and you know obviously the housing market is not the stock market and vice versa. And yet i can understand particularly for people who are involved in it yeah. I'm sure you know at least a couple of people. We work with a couple of people who are in the process of trying to buy a home and some of the stories. I'm hearing are borderline crazy.
Giving to Create a Legacy
"When we talk about legacy planning. We're talking about you. Typically for our clients that are independent. they're financially independent. Maybe reach the financial transcendent stage. They're talking about giving the talking about making significant gifts to family or to charity. And that's what i mean by legacy doing something to provide for others. that goes well beyond beyond our lifetime. Okay so if i am making a gift some to someone My child or in my case You know i've got a couple of grandkids. Now and i wanna give a gift to grandchild. Is that taxable to the person receiving the gift in other words. Am i going to be setting my grandchild up to have to pay taxes and not necessarily know just like if you give them a birthday present their taxed on that that gift and if you're giving them significant let's they're not necessarily taxed on that on that gift so that's a simple answer. Okay all right. Well i i know that if uncle sam head his way he might wanna show up at birthday parties and start taxing gasoline difficulty. Just just saying the attitude. He's got right now anyway. What about the person making the gift. I is there any ramifications for me if i'm if i'm gonna give a large gift like that that that's where this guy gets a little complex so possibly if the gift is large enough and i and i just want to briefly give some some basic tax concepts and some rules around that not to more people but tax planning is part of financial so we need to talk about it. The basics earned income meaning wages taxable as regular income and so his income from investments like dividends and interest. I think most of our listeners know that. And if you sell an asset that you've owned for longer than twelve months for for a gain you you've realized a long term capital gain and that gain is taxed at capital gains rates which can be lower than tax rates on on regular income. That's just the basics for larger estates and here. I'm talking about very large estates currently in excess of a million. I'm sorry eleven million. Five hundred and eighty thousand dollars for an individual and twenty three million one hundred and sixty thousand for a married couple for states in gifts in excess of that amount of the federal government is going to taxed tax the giver at forty percent well for large estates. The tax could be very significant in here. I think this is really a transfer tax not necessarily tax only a death because you're making very very large gifts that exceeds those limits. Eleven eleven million five hundred and twenty three million one hundred sixty thousand. Those are also taxed to the to the person giving not to the receiver of those assets and then another. There's another level of tax at least in seventeen states plus the district of columbia. They're going to also levy a transfer tax estate tax for example in massachusetts we haven't attacked exemption of a million dollars per person and thereafter estates are taxed at point eight percent all the way up to point all the way up to sixteen percent. Taxes can be part of the conversation and and the and the planning so back to gifting. The federal tax law says an individual can gift fifteen thousand dollars to an individual per year. You can give to your grandchild. Fifteen thousand dollars in your wife can give to your grandchild thousand dollars oak. We call this. The annual exclusion anything in excess of fifteen thousand dollars is counted against your federal lifetime. Exemption which is it which we just described that eleven million five hundred and eight thousand dollars and that so it's counted against your lifetime exemption and attacks form that discloses that gift is required if it's if it's a gift of fifteen thousand dollars or less there's no tax form if there's a gift in excess of fifteen thousand dollars per person per year calendar year then there's a form that needs to be sent to the irs. That doesn't necessarily attacks do you. And your wife give gift your daughter. Thirty thousand dollars in a calendar year. No tax forms required. But if you give her forty thousand dollars you'll need to file a gift tax form disclosing a ten thousand dollar taxable gift. Now your lifetime. Exemption is reduced by ten thousand dollars. There's no tax do over. But now you've your lifetime transfer exemption amount is is a little bit less okay a little bit more detail than you might want but it's an important nation. Yeah that's perfect. Because i think that's a huge in planning for people that can afford it. Peter i'll be honest. I'm not in this category yet right. i'm not gonna. i'm not worried about going over that thirty thousand dollars a year gift. My children or my grandchildren but there are a lot of people out there that are right and they need to know this information. They need to know that can give them an annual basis. They just need to subtracted from the total mountain and play by the rules. Because you know you don't want to get yourself in trouble for sure. I think it's important. I also just from a tax law perspective. We don't we don't know what tax laws will be in the future cert. There's certainly not static in there definitely subject to change so under under the current law the lifetime exemption amount is scheduled to reduce back to the two thousand and seventeen exemption of five million dollars per person. And that's adjusted for inflation and that starts in twenty twenty six so under current law that that lifetime exemption amount goes is reduced from almost twelve million dollars down to almost six million dollars with y when you consider inflation. What happens to those people that have already. You don't reach that that mark. Maybe they've given away eleven million and then it goes back to five million per person are they are the grandfathered in i'm using air quotes there. The grandfather dinners. They're going to be any issue with that. Oh you ask a great question. And the the irs. They have determined that. There's not going to be a clawback. So yes they can make the gift now. It will always be exempt said. It's good so again. There's there's much needed information for those people that are in this situation. There's a time limit right. I mean there's there's kind of a ticking clock on on getting those gifts to somebody before it sunsets back to a much lesser amount. So the great information
Cerence Announces Record First Quarter 2021 Results
"Gonna start today with severance the automotive. Ai developer came out with record results in the first quarter and yet shares of severance down. eight percent. today is this evaluation thing. Is this people in the market. Saying look it's up. Four hundred percent of the past year where we're taking some profits. I think that's a reasonable. That's a reasonable assumption. There are some things in the call that could lead you to believe maybe the near term there might be some challenges. But yeah i mean there's no doubt it is a it's a business it's not profitable yet and and so that is one of those things. That's the biggest risk to to a stock like this today is is typically going to be valuation given how far it's run in such a short time if you just been a tremendous perform for us in our services and it's really turning into a fun little company to follow the valley. It shows the value. I think that spinoffs can offer. Because if you remember. Sarah is it used to be a part of nuance communications and spun off from nuance to to become. Its own own little company but but really servants for folks who don't know. What does i mean. This is a company that focuses on conversational envision. Art official intelligence based products for the automobile. And so it's essentially getting in your car in being able to operate things primarily with your voice but they also have audio or visual components. They're they're working with a partnerships to develop a augmented reality windshields so all sorts of things they're developing as the car becomes next frontier and i. It's the neat thing about this business. I is when you when you actually go through. What they do in the primary focus today is on the automobile but they also they also like to tout the market expansion potential and adjacent markets including get this. Chris cruise ships two wheel vehicles and elevators so so modes of transportation of all sorts. I mean they're really looking to get into all sorts of different modes of transportation. It really the car is the primary frontier for this this business but to your point it was a great quarter. Revenue grew by twenty three percent. They had called incidentally for ten to sixteen percent previously so they said they really surpassed guidance there so ninety five million dollars for the quarter versus versus a year ago setting a new quarterly record. They've continued growth in billings per car and interestingly too they won back a major european. Oem deal for the quarter so so generating some new infotainment designs of for a major european and that production will start in two thousand twenty three. So there's a lot of cool stuff on the horizon. I mentioned there. Were some signs that maybe some near-term challenges in primarily that was noted in a supply chain constraints. Semiconductors in i i think management is being pretty upfront with that. We've seen that mentioned before and other calls. The company are referred to on motley. Fool money this past week synthetics they noted the same thing that there are just some supply chain constraints in the semicon semiconductor industry. Right now that are that are putting some businesses in a little bit of a pinch. That's a near term thing. That's not a business specific specific things so so for me. I look at what this business is doing the regardless of the selling off today. I think they really still are. They're delivering what they say they're going to deliver in. And i'm really encouraged.

AP Analysis: Racial disparity seen in US vaccination drive
"I'm Julie Walker a racial gap has opened to the nation's covert vaccination drive with black Americans in many places lagging behind whites in receiving shops the gap is deeply troubling to some given the corona virus has taken a disproportionate toll on blacks and Associated Press analysis of the state's releasing data for example North Carolina shows black people make up twenty two percent of the population but only eleven percent of vaccine recipients while whites are sixty eight percent of the population and eighty two percent of those vaccinated similarly in Maryland blacks are thirty percent of the population and get sixteen percent of the shops while whites are fifty five percent and sixty seven percent of those who have gotten shots experts say there are several factors for this disparity including inadequate access and just trust because of a history of discrimination I'm Julie Walker

Chicago Is Now Under Tier 2 COVID Restrictions
"So chicago and suburban cook. county is now relaxed from tier three to tier two restrictions. So casinos museums can reopen with limited capacity. social gatherings in chicago are limited to no more than ten people though. Indoor dining at restaurants and bars remains suspended in the city. What else So first of all this is really the good news and he said this is an example of here in chicago. Broadly doing the right thing wearing those masks. Changing their holiday plans. We did see a little bit of a bump host those holiday gatherings but we are now past that and heading the right way so in addition to what you laid out. Health and fitness centers can be open twenty five percent capacity those fitness group classes of ten or fewer Can resume under those capacity are movie theatres and performance venues can reopen indoors forty percent capacity no more than fifty people in any space and people who wanna see more details referred to chicago dot gov slash reopening. But this is a really good step. And we're sitting at about eight. To nine percent positivity now down from sixteen percent at the peak. We're getting close if we keep seeing progress in this way I'm hopeful that really quite soon. We will be able to make that next cautious step and get some of those.

Are You Underweight Chinese Stocks? Pros and Cons of Investing in China
"Are you under weight chinese stocks. Should you be. I recently got an email from a member of money for the rest of us. Plus he lives in switzerland but grew up in asia. He mentioned that he has been a long term investor in china as he analyzed his chinese equity investments in two thousand twenty. He noticed that they didn't fall. As much as stocks in other countries and the currency held its value relative to the us dollar. He went to look at his overall exposure to chinese trying to calibrate it within his per folio he noticed that relative to the size of the chinese economy which is the second largest in the world that he was underweight chinese stocks in fact the major stock indices. Msci all country world index has five point two percent in china yet. China's gross domestic product the monetary value of their output is over sixteen percent of global. Gdp trying to figure out. Well what should his weight be. He's primarily getting his performance through an a-share etf china a-shares our stock shares that trade on mainland china and trade in the local chinese currency the lon new trade on the shanghai stock exchange and the shenzhen stock exchange historically these chinese a-shares are only available to domestic investors but since two thousand three china has allowed certain institutional investors to acquire license to be able to purchase some of these chinese a share stocks for example back in two thousand fifteen vanguard. Was i allowed to buy these chinese a-shares stocks up to one point five billion dollars. It was at that time. They added chinese. A shares to their emerging market stocks index fund and etf trading nature's has typically been dominated by local chinese investors and returns have been volatile in twenty twenty though they gained forty one percent incredible performance. It was the result of the chinese economy performing better than any developed or developing economy in the world in two thousand twenty in this episode. We're going to look at. What should our weight be in china in our stock portfolio. There's definitely some pros and cons to investing in china and that's what this member was trying to figure out what what what should his weight be in. China been twenty twenty. The chinese economy officially grew two point three percent some of its weakest annual rate of growth. But the best in the world. now there's always some controversy regarding how accurate are the official economic statistics in china. I subscribe to capital economics which produces something called the china activity proxy and it's an estimate of economic growth using different metrics that they have much more confidence in and they show that the economy grew close to seven percent in the fourth quarter from four point nine percent in the third quarter. This is on a basis chinese. gdp it's gross domestic product the measure of what it produces its output of goods and services has been growing faster than many areas around the world for over a decade and as a result. The chinese economy is getting to be a larger percentage of overall global gdp in china. And this is data from. Moody's referenced an article in the wall street journal. China in two thousand ten made up ten percent of world. Gdp us in two thousand. Ten was twenty three point two percent of global. Gdp at the end of two thousand twenty. China had grown to sixteen point eight percent of global gdp while the us has shrunk to twenty two point two percent so china at its six percentage points. The us lost one percent. As i mentioned the chinese economy grew in twenty twenty and one reason it grew was because of americans that were stuck in their homes. And we're able to travel and go out to eat. And instead bought goods off. Amazon and other stores and as a result exports from china surged in november chinese exports grew twenty one point one percent compared to the prior month and exports to the. Us grew forty six percent. Despite all the trade war rhetoric new tariffs individuals. Continue to purchase things that were made in china and many. Us companies continue to make a lot of their things in china. That growth in exports certainly helped the chinese economy. The other thing that helped the chinese economy cover is day to day. Life has generally returned to normal. The country was able to better control the coronavirus and as a result people are back driving their cars. They're taking public transportation china's not kobe. Free this past week on one day the recorded two hundred and ten new covert cases the highest since march but only two hundred and ten compared to the thousands and thousands of new covid cases confirmed each day in the us. The chinese economy has rebounded because all that manufacturing of those exports has allowed migrant workers which make up about a third of the workforce to take their jobs again. So incomes are growing in china and they're also benefiting because during the early months of the pandemic the chinese increase the amount that they're saving chinese households. Increase your savings rate. Now there appear more willing to spend that savings on buying goods and services and that has helped propel the chinese economy forward.

What's Ahead For The Economy In 2021?
"We have a brand new year which begins with the very same economy that we had yesterday. What are the trend lines for. Twenty twenty one. Npr chief economic correspondent. Scott horsely joins us scott happy new year. Happy used so would up. Yeah yeah there. We begin the year with vaccines being distributed. Not as quickly as expected but millions of shots are out there. What's that do for the economy will it. It does mean things are looking up. the folks of the federal reserve. Now say they think the us economy is gonna grow more than four percent in twenty twenty one they think by the end of this year unemployment will have fallen from six point seven percent now to around five percent. Both those forecasts are rosier than what the fed was expecting just a few months ago There was also a survey by the national association for business economics that finds growing optimism nearly three out of four business. Economists surveyed think the economy will have regained all the ground. It lost twenty twenty sometime by the second half of this coming year. The second half of this coming year but in this first half. That's beginning. We clearly still don't have a handle on the pandemic now. I mean we're still losing more than three thousand people every day in this country. We've lost more than three hundred. Forty thousand americans so far to the virus. That's an enormous. That's an enormous human as well as economic loss and because so many people are still getting sick Seeing more restrictions imposed on in-person businesses consumers themselves are also getting more careful about going out and shopping and spending money. We also know now that there's a new variation of the virus here in the us that appears to spread more easily and that could lead to more restrictions still it is encouraging that we have these highly effective vaccines. That were developed at warp speed. But so far the shots are getting out there At a much slower speed more like a local subway You know president-elect. Joe biden has had a goal of delivering one hundred million shots in his first hundred days in office right now. We're doing about two hundred thousand so unless there's a sharp acceleration a two hundred thousand a day. Excuse me yeah so it's gonna take a really sharp acceleration too to get anywhere close to the kind of speed that that biden talking about. In the meantime public health officials say it's even more important that people keep wearing their face masks keep their distance rather people and keep washing their hands so this becomes the critical factor for many businesses. If you're working in the restaurant industry if you're running a movie theater if you work in the airlines anything like that you've got hazards ahead. Other parts of the economy. I guess would be less affected. Just as was the case in twenty twenty. That's right is this has been a really uneven Recession and a really uneven recovery both for individuals and for whole industries people who can work from home and have a job that's in demand Might be doing just fine A lot of factories now to near pre pandemic levels. They've been able to keep their workers spaced out and they're making products that people are buying consumers are actually buying a lot of stuff right now. In some cases they're spending more on Goods because they can't spend money on services like eating out or travelling or going to concerts. service businesses though and the people who work in those industries that think the people that the businesses that depend on bringing people together. They're still suffering We could however see a fairly rapid turnaround services once people actually feel safe going out in crowds again during the hunker down. Some people have actually managed to put some money. Aside and that pent up demand could come unpacked once the virus under control. where's the stock market at. It has been a wild ride We had a gut wrenching plunged during the spring of twenty twenty when the pandemic i took hold in the us but since that time stocks have made up all the lost ground and then some that al jones industrial average closed yesterday at a record high. It was up more than seven percent from the beginning of two thousand twenty. The s p five hundred grew more than sixteen percent last year. Some of that was driven by big technology. Stocks that profited from are stay at home. Lifestyles during the pandemic netflix amazon. For example but some of the recent gains have also come from more consumer stocks and even beaten down industries like cruise ships so investors are betting that the worst is now behind us and twenty twenty one will be brighter. Let's hope that's true the broader economy as well

"There's only a slow down a government slowdown of sixteen percent of the government. And it's very survivable. This stop calling it a shutdown and start calling it a slow down. I like the way you're thinking about you know, because seventy percent of the government has been funded all the way through all of next year seventy percents already paid for. But I love this. I survived the government shutdown. That's a great perspective on this. Because the actual portrayal of a government shutdown is panic and chaos and some people might not make it. Some people are going to incur such difficulties such chaos and may suffer real heart. That's the image that goes behind these government shutdown. You can't get by without your government up and running the fact that these threatened shutdowns seem to have that kind of political benefit really frosts me the idea that people can't get by when the government's not open. I mean half the time what our government working hours anyway. I mean, and then the fact that the the government gets shut down so many times during the course of a year, they shut themselves down if there's a couple of inches of snow for crying out loud. And nobody panics then. But you get the drive by media backing up the democrat party in one of their political agendas, and a government shutdown could mean end of life for certain people, it could mean end of benefits for certain people. Speaking of which. Story here on how we have really Kerr tail the food stamp rolls. And I'm gonna tell you. Here's the headline three point five million people drop off food stamps under Trump. This is the kind of thing that not that long ago. Would be really herald. Did it would be really celebrated? It would be something. Remarkably good to have happened to people in the country. Three and a half people no longer needing food stamps would translate into three and a half million people. Finding work becoming productive becoming self reliant. An undertaking daily responsibilities of life and benefiting from citizenship in the United States of America, three and a half million people. Now, not no longer needing food stamps. It's a shame. It's too bad that we now cannot celebrate things like this. Now, we can barely get it mentioned. The political sense is is really bad news for the left. And so nobody's gonna know about it. They'll do all they can to get power and reverse the trend. They don't want people dropping off food stamps. This is not good news for them. But I'm here to tell you it wasn't that long ago that a headline like this would it made people stand up a cheer feel great about their country. One of the objectives was to get people off of welfare to get people off of. Government benefits your life is much better. When you're providing for yourself when you're not dependent on people. You don't even know. Now, it's a story that's buried even in my stack. I have to make a specific point of finding but it used to be not that long ago. It would have been tremendous celebratory news and a political benefit for whichever administration was in office when it.
