Visa Buys a Punk as Bitcoin Returns to $50K
"As i discussed on saturdays weekly recap. Bitcoin had just made a nice little punch-up heading into the weekend last night on sunday. Bitcoin lifted its head above fifty thousand where it remained until about an hour ago at the time of this recording. Some have called this last month. The short squeeze rally referring to the fact that it was started as bitcoin held above thirty thousand dollars in the face of numerous short positions that forced those shortsellers to buy more at higher prices to keep their positions open to being a boom short-squeeze. Whatever the cause over the last thirty days. Bitcoin is up around forty six percent and bitcoins peak in the last twenty four hours around fifty thousand two hundred three month high. Bitcoin is now recorded gains for five consecutive weeks. Which is its longest winning streak in september of last year. Matthew did the co founder and coo at stack funds said that this rally unlike some of our previous frenetic moves up hasn't been driven by derivatives bets but instead by spot buying quote looking at funding in the options market. This rally still appears to be spot driven. Our expectation is that this break of psychological resistance will likely result in a rotation back to bitcoin in the coming weeks with the next target of sixty thousand dollars. This idea of a lot of spot buying driving things seems to be affirmed by data from into the block which shows that institutions in. Wales appear to have been accumulating alongside price growth.

WSOP Field Sizes Are Dropping
"I know i said the wsb gets a pass on field sizes in a year over year comparison because things have changed dramatically since twenty twenty however last year's fields was two thousand one hundred twenty six centuries from fourteen hundred hundred fifty. Five weeks seems awful. Yeah it feels like a really steep drop off right there. And i know that we talked about it and i was thinking something like maybe like a thirty percent. Drop off. I think would been good and acceptable. Just based upon the fact of everything that's going on in poker right now that having that kind of field size would still be good but this does feel quite thin for championship. Event as a sixty two percent drop year over year in total entries. That's that's ugly no matter what. The circumstances are surprised that low. I did have it being over a thousand. Maybe getting closer to fifteen hundred total entries but Just seem to be a sort of a. Instead of being the exclamation point at the end of the series. It was kind of a hard thud. Couple of other events wrapped up in the closing days mitchell harrison. Brad's osman and dancing. Lar- winning the finale though event to run after the championship event all in all. I think he's probably pretty happy with with word. Got out of it. It seems like there was maybe far less appetite than even they'd predicted given all the different changes so We're gonna see what happens with the gp stuff which is now underway. They started just as w dot com is wrapping up. Gee-gee was sort of hitting the gas pedal on there's the fifty dollar buying kickoff event called the return man i'm going to butcher. This dudes bart lumpia bata. Oh man. that's really good. I think that's really good. I think you didn't really got okay. There's a hockey player with a similar name on relied on my my childhood memory hockey players. I was waiting with baited breath to see what would come out of your mouth. Very give call him. I'm going to call them bar because that's only fair to him cops. A thirty thousand eight hundred ten entry field takes him one hundred sixty thousand dollars not bad for fifty bucks. Yeah not bad at all. You know Last year the the field size was good too. I know last year the opener for the events it was double the buyin one hundred dollar opener and they got twenty nine thousand three hundred six runners. And so this this.

Q&A - Should I Invest in Work Pension?
"Michael's with us in wisconsin. I'm michael how are you dave again. Just a quick question for you. I we salute you. All about a year ago left my job and punching their concert system. It's a four one. Eight plan is about sixty thousand dollars in it. You know you always recommend to roll that over when you leave or personal. I'm wondering if i should do that in leaving that plan. You lose the employer contributions which is about fifty percent so that'd be thirty thousand dollars. I'm wondering what the best movies i let it. Sit and exit. When i'm able to and the eligible to what you've aged fifty or and thirty years old and Or do i take that out and take a loss. Bested the 401k planet year old company does not vast. You're matching until you're fifty. It's a four one. Is you know but that just means after taxes. All that means Yeh don't vast. you're matching true. Yes correct that's asinine okay And it's how much money sixty thousand. That's the match portion Thirty thousand monday's okay. And how what's it invested in. I truly did. Oh jeez i don't even know what the breakdown is. They are pretty limited on what you don't get to choose your investments in that plan. Yeah how old are you the ones in thirty. But you don't get to choose the investments in your plan. Negative a state okay. Here's what's running through my head and then you can decide what you wanna do your hold now again. Thirty thirty thirty years old okay. So for twenty years you either are going to have thirty thousand dollars. Sixty thousand dollars underperforming sucking sixty thousand. Or you're going to have thirty thousand performing well. Yeah in good mutual fund about you were gonna go and i don't know which one's going to end up with more money is the only way i said do. The thirty thousand will double if you've got it invested at ten percent if you re if your mutual funds perform a ten percent which they should i will double about every seven years and so it would double three times twenty years twenty one years so it would go from thirty to sixty two Okay i can do this. Wait a minute it'll go from Thirty to sixty two one. Twenty two to forty okay. That'll be you're thirty thousand double three times one. Two three tops. That's okay now sixty. Let's say it's making you ain't at cast. What the stupid things making. I would guess i. I've looked at the evidence over the course of the last say forty years parole together. I think i came out with like a southern eight percent average so seven percent. It'll double every ten years. Okay so sixty would be one twenty would be to forty. It's exactly the same. Yeah okay. you're thirty will grow to as much as that. Sixty will grow if you invest it at ten percent greater versus seven
What It's Really Like to Be a Truck Driver
"My understanding is that there's a lot of turnover among drivers too. So you know trucks might get worn out after three years. Drivers might get worn out in even less time and leave the industry altogether. Could you maybe describe. How desirable is being a truck driver as an occupation. At the moment so joe and i talked about how we both have this sort of romanticize view of it could you may be Tell us what it's really like. And how it stacks up against the money that you're actually being paid to do it. At the moment the realities are quite different in your romanticized Of the it is a tough job. So if you're an owner operator you'll make in this market because the demand is so high you quite well. You probably would net one hundred thousand dollars as a employee driver. You're probably going to be making about fifty five to sixty thousand dollars as an employee driver per year and you're going to be paid on a per mile basis. You're gonna you're gonna run your trot kurt or drive or work about fifty six hours on a given week. It's not a forty hour week. Actually working fifty six hours. But here's the reality is. You're not at home every single night. The vast majority of the driver attraction out and so while you may not be on duty that fifty six hours in a given week. You're you're still at a truck You're still dealing with over the road. So it's it's a really. It creates a lot of strain on families A lot of strain on people. It takes a special kind of person to want a life where they're out in the road. It's it's a job that's very dangerous is one of the most dangerous jobs in america. It's a job that has very a high occupational issues in terms of health. You're sitting in a truck for you know you're driving for eleven hours a day. You're sitting which you know drivers have high incidence of obesity diabetes so it's not a great lifestyle And for all those reasons. It's not a desirable job for for a large percent of the population. And unfortunately the industry salaries have not kept up with a lot of the competitive industries which they compete for labor like warehousing construction other types of industries which sent a poll the same labor force

"My pleasure pleasure to Put point Recently the politicians have been talking about trying to bring industry back to the united states goal. The point is if they hadn't given the way they wouldn't have to bring it back policy driving industry away from our country years right so the question is if you're trying to solve this problem you know what it is caused the problem. Well i don't believe anything. What caused the problem because if they did they tell us what it was what they're gonna do to fix it so a couple of things that caused the problem Number one of them is corporate taxes regulations driven out of business or the country and income taxes. So i have a quick analogy like deposit. And here's how it goes. They can typical auto workers. Gm hundred twenty thousand dollars per year. He's gross and for the sake of this simple analogy. Let's just say that the tax rate is fifty percent so sixty thousand dollars is taken out of his pay. He gets sixty thousand to take home. He's happy about that's what he sees every year. That's where he lives on. The problem is about sixty thousand dollars. Just take it out that has to be paid by the company which really paid by the company because have the pass all the costs under the consumer the consumer pays sixty thousand and that's sixty thousand goes to the government that it's actually a penalty on hiring workers so high taxes go the more. The penalty is and the more that consumer has to pay for the sake of our simple argument all of a sudden if you could wave the magic wand and make that sixty thousand dollars or fifty percent then all of a sudden all the prices on holiday products in america the simple analogy would be half-price. Nothing but a thirty thousand dollar cars. You only cost fifteen thousand dollars..

"Thank you to both of those that that have served us both military and those first responders and So that's just a great great benefit we can't we can't thank them enough. And that's We're happy to do that. I mean that's a lot. That's that's a lot of discounts on top of each other. That's a great thing. The liberties doing for for all the men and women both from military end first responders. You mentioned briefly the issues that you had when you were working at other fly schools leading those fly schools about financial aid. And there. there aren't. There are a couple of good options. But there's not many options out there what what is a student. What can a student get access to if their liberty Student as it relates to financial eight. Let's assume that. I wanna give my private pilot's license. I want a four year degree. I guess i registered with liberty. Do i have access to financial aid. Certainly is the nice part with liberty before a student jumps off. You know the the ideas. Yes if you go to the flight school itself and try to fund something. It's very difficult because you go into your bank and ask for an unsecured loan for sixty thousand dollars or so You know they're more than likely they're gonna laugh at you. Okay it would have to be secured with a home or something along those lines Makes it much much more difficult What liberties got is we deal with. Lenders that are used to those dollar figures and so it makes that process much easier. Every student that comes in is going to fill out a fast form. Which determines a families or an individual's expected family contribution determines if they're eligible for pell grant With free money that free money can be used for tuition and flight fees beyond that they're stafford loans that those stafford loans are low interest and their defensible until six months after a student graduates. So that's the the idea that are financially team will work with them and then beyond that we have other options. We have parents plus loan that the parents can sign for again. There's there's benefits of that particular loan But if you don't have a parent and you need additional funding there's additional loans. We deal with multiple different lenders That we can.

"The books. It's a cousin that's himself very clear to say to the. Us congress never use this measure as an indicator of general economic welfare can be used as to thing then so what happened was the during world war two. There was a really desperate need to be able to assess how much productive capacity ends taxable income. There wasn't economy. So you knew how many resources you had available to you for fighting. The nazis effectively during this period kuznetsov concerns about what. Gdp leaves out were pushed aside in favor of a kind of total devotion to gdp as the standard measure because of the importance of the time effort. So it's kinda understandable in a way but one of the reasons that gdp remains today so violent in the sense so aggressive is because it is precisely because of the wartime measure now when in the wake of the war when the world's nations got together the bretton woods conference nineteen forty four to decide how the global economy would be organized the enshrined gdp growth or gdp as the standard measure of economic success in the following decades. It wasn't just. Gdp became importance wasn't just the levels of the economy can importance. It was growth as an objective itself. and we see this Adopted by the ocd in nineteen sixty one of the founding of the cd. The idea was to maximize gdp growth during the cold. War in the sixties and seventies than the competition between the us and. The ussr was organized in large part. Around which system could produce more economic growth so gb became this fetish that people focused on as indicator of progress on facts. That's not at all. What actually somehow has become conflated. We progressed hasn't Human progress and we need to kind of disentangle Your no this is important to point out that up to a certain point up to a certain low level. Gdp growth does have a relationship to human wellbeing because it produces more the kinds of resources. Eat money to invest in say healthcare and education and so on now crucially it all depends on how incomes distributed which. Gdp figures themselves don't account for and so if you distribute income in a progressive kind of way ensuring that workers have good wages and you invest in public goods like healthcare education. Then there can be a correlation between gdp growth ends. She welfare up to a point. But after that point after about ten thousand or twenty thousand dollars in terms of gdp per capita the relationship completely breaks down so for example. We have the usa gdp per capita of about sixty thousand dollars. Compare that to portugal portugal. Gdp per capita is only about twenty thousand dollars a third that of.

"Let's talk about this whole kylie jenner go fund me situation. Yeah it would love to okay so for anybody who is unaware. What's going on samuel route. A who is a makeup artist in la. He's most probably known for his handle at makeup. By samuel and in terms of the car dashing community. I personally know him because he does dasa's make lot. He was in this terrible accident this last weekend and he's very close friends. Reo who's kylie's makeup artist and so kylie had posted a photo him with the caption on her story. Watch over you protect you. Make up by samuel. Everyone take a moment to say a prayer for sam who got into an accident this past weekend and swipe up to visit his family's go fund me and when you swipe up the goal for the medical bills with sixty thousand dollars so immediately twitter was kinda sent into a frenzy of people saying you know why kylie jenner. Who's the billionaire asking for her fans and followers to help support this goal of sixty thousand dollars. That is basically packaged share. I will say from what i saw on twitter. A lot of people thought that this was her direct makeup artist and friend arielle which it's not as more acquaintance but anyway that was the initial reaction. I'm sure you all saw that a little bit after that. Tmz came out with an article. That says quote. We're told there's a misconception at sixty k. figure everyone's quoting the original target amount for this go fund me when it first launched with ten thousand dollars and our sources say kylie's five thousand dollar donation. Put it over the top as it was already six thousand dollars at the time since then. The targeted has ballooned likely because of the attention kylie brought it by posting the link on her instagram story. Then i mean just within the last hour kylie made a story and said i feel. It's important for me to clear up this false narrative that ask fans for money and i'm not paying for a makeup artist medical bills. Sam isn't my makeup artist. Unfortunately we don't have a personal relationship anymore. But i've worked with him a few years ago and think he's the sweetest. I saw my current makeup artisan friend arielle. Posted about sam's accident families go fund me and i called immediately to see what happened to sam after learning in more detail about the accident and can tell me visit his go fund me which is set a ten thousand dollars.

Survey: Americans Could Spend Up to $40B in Stimulus Payments on Bitcoin
"And today we're talking about why americans are poised to spend up to forty billion dollars. Indirect stimulus payments on bitcoin. I however let's do the brief. I on the brief today. We have to do a little price talk. It was another weekend and another milestone. Unless you were dead or completely off the grid you know that. Bitcoin hit sixty thousand dollars. In fact it spent some significant time over sixty one thousand dollars now. The prices subsequently come back down a little bit. There was a set of cascading because people insist on trading with a huge amount of leverage and the popular narrative around the small dip from today is that it's just profit taking and certainly when we've seen such a meteoric rise up it makes sense that that would be the case for me. I don't care so much about the price. But what i do care about and what i find. Interesting is the psychological impact of the price. It took three years to get back to twenty thousand after it was first reached in twenty seventeen. It took just three months from when we hit twenty thousand this time around to jump three x two sixty thousand of course in that sort of extreme scenario. You're gonna have a bifurcated response. They're going to be many. Who see this as validation or even who get off the fence because the asset has proved itself others are going to double triple quadruple down on their frantic critique and man did i notice a lot of boomer macro guys their crap on twitter this weekend. Lynn alden seem to as well tweeting. Bitcoin bear twitter. went from. It's a bubble and dead technology pumped up by tether to america will ban it before it displaces. The dollar is global reserve currency and i support this i e the banning of certain property and literal information rather quickly while regulation and state attacks are a long known risk factor for bitcoin. When bears talk like this about the asset. It ironically sounds more bullish than when bulls talk about it bear starting to view it as that much of a threat as ever. This price can move around quite a bit. But it's certainly does not feel like this area that we're at in the forties and fifties and all the way up past sixty thousand. Feel like mania. It just feels like the consistent and relentless pressure of more people trying to buy a thing that they're just that much of

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 Indicator from Planet Money
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

"Your monthly benefits are just limited. The there it's not that rich although it's an important benefit it's not something you can necessarily rely on And then we we asked the questions you know what what are the benefits of your existing disability policies and this is another advantage of doing comprehensive planning. We're getting everything on on the table. We're looking at it. All are your benefits that you're getting through your employer good and reasonable. And how. How does that affect your overall planning. Many employers offer short-term disability benefits which which pays a typically a small benefit a weekly benefit for three to six months and that might be capped. It you know five hundred or a thousand dollars per week and when that runs its course your. Your company may offer long-term disability group insurance and maybe that will kick in and then we need to look at that group disability policy. You know what are the benefits. Oftentimes they pay sixty percent of salary but but bonus income may not be included and that's an important calculation so just as an example if you typically receive a a bonus annual bonus and your salary is let's say one hundred thousand dollars in your typical bonuses twenty five thousand dollars per year so if the plan that you have provides a benefit of sixty percent a salary that's an annual benefit of sixty thousand dollars per year but that only replaces forty eight percent of one hundred twenty five thousand dollars if expected compensation you just need to understand what the cash flow will be if there's a disability and i will say this most disability income plants are taxable income if you're effective federal and state tax rate is twenty percent then your net after-tax income now only forty eight thousand dollars per year and the question is is that enough replacement income to cover your expenses like your mortgage like your your auto payments your utilities your maintenance you know childcare or tuition or groceries we want to map it out. We want to look at the caps. Most disability plans have a monthly cap. meaning me. they don't pay more than three thousand or five thousand or seventy five hundred dollars per month. A very rich plans might pay pay ten or fifteen thousand dollars per month but but not all do other other disability plans offer have other limits is just an example.

"Hey mark thanks for joining me today on. The sounds profitable podcasts. It's a pledge to be. Thank you awesome. Awesome insert today. We're gonna digging deeper into the article. I wrote about the podcasts analytics workgroup. I thought that was a really interesting place to start. When i started with sounds profitable because i really like the idea of another organization out there that was looking to help everybody gather information together and potentially have alternatives to just the ab solution out there. So i figure it's a. It's probably a great idea for us to start off with asking you to explain opa and what inspired you to start it. Okay yeah absolutely so it is. It's a lofty organization with a terrible name. I think i was hoping it was going to be a placeholder. It's what we're going with For now so back in a may twenty nine thousand nine hundred last year was a as we're recording anyway. I was looking around at some of my analytics data for the podcast hosting company the iran and one of the questions that sometimes gets asked as about how customers can move data from one provider into potent for example and. I thought it'd be really interesting to see what can be done about ways that we can standardize the tracking information that we have about each episode. How many times. It's been downloaded roughly. By whom and i started thinking more about things like the and being a programmer by by nature. I guess i thought that the kinds of problems that the i obey are tackling for podcasters in so much as they are calculating like what can what do we consider to be a download of a podcast episode. That felt to be something that we could tackle in an automated basis in a way that could be easily replicated uneasily run easily automated as i say the didn't necessarily need a huge amounts of people cost. It'd be time to set up initially but then the day would be that. It was something that that you would be able to run in the same way that we now have things. Like letting crypt for handling. Ssl certificates So that you now you don't have to pay multiple hundreds of dollars to get an s Sasol's difficult for your website. You can get one for free by using this system. Yeah i i think that's great and that's one thing that i wanted to kind of break down. There is that the i. a. b. you know has a fee per year depending on the size of your company. I looked to join his an independent. And i can get in like the first two years a startup rates at five thousand dollars now. Five thousand dollar fee doesn't do anything if i wanted to get certified. It's an additional cost. And that cost us what two ways one is a payment to the ab and the other is a payment to certification company. Like a like an auditing company that comes in and confirms that you adhered to the ab sanders by doing like tech audit and reviewing all your data and so james cridland pibe. News has his own self hosted podcast awesome. It could cost them forty to sixty thousand dollars easily for him for one year to be certified with the iab. Alternatively eager kicked the numbers over the cdn data over to like triton and be validated there. But you know that's a couple grand a month to and at the end of the day like that's still it's not that far off from what the charges so what you're talking about here is instead of something that each individual host would get audited instead. We have like a central piece of tech that is audited that's maintained in improbably. Third party verified that is able to allow hosting companies and other platforms to call in do a self certification and it focuses on that central point right instead of like the deep dive required for each individual partner. Absolutely and i think the the thing to to tack onto mr cridland example is he could use something like chargeable. Which i guess is now. Abc's fide he could use that but as someone who writes about for example listener privacy. There are questions around that that you would imagine there would be with any of these third party analytics services you know. There's a reason they make that infrastructure available for for people. Like a steve's especially of people to use for free and so without getting into the weeds on on that particular discussion. That might be a reason. Not to put words in james's mouth but that might be one of several reasons why he'd be not when you use a third party service because that's something that he does writes about.

Using Stories to Market Your Business with Amy Porterfield
"Hey is this happened in your business. Last month was a bad month so this month. We're going to run a sale. A big promotion. We're gonna email list and say by now because it. We gotta get some cash in the door. It's not really a marketing plan. You know what that's called. It's called spray and pray from the ramsey network. This is the entreleadership podcast where we help business. Leaders themselves their teams and the prophets. I'm your host daniel tardy and my guest today. is amy porterfield. She's a longtime friend of entreleadership. She's also an online marketing expert to helping entrepreneurs and small business owners win. Aim is going to share with you. Why you have to have a plan for your marketing and the good news is it doesn't have to be complicated in fact the foundation it simple because marketing starts with just telling people's stories so when you tell the story especially about somebody else that you served and you've helped when you tell the story right meaning you talk about the struggles and the challenges in the fears that they had the winds and what that meant for them and what they've overcome people can see themselves in those stories so much easier than you. Just saying i've got this great product. It has amazing benefits in features. You need it. That's one thing but also when you sell when you promote no matter how much your audience loves you. They put up a wall whether it be just a little while or really big wall. There's always a little defense up there and we're going to talk about it later. But i do webinars to sell my digital courses and on a webinar for the first forty five minutes you are giving giving giving and so when you do ask for them to buy your product. Their defenses are all the way up. Because you were giving and you were inviting them in in different ways in offering value so the same thing with the story when people see themselves in other people's stories and they can relate and resonate. They those defenses. Come down and they say i want a piece of that i if she could do it i can do it too and so i'm all about helping. People put their guard down. Because it's a natural thing to put it up especially when you're asking someone to spend money so i noticed you said when you tell the story right. Yeah what's the right way to tell the story. Well you had talked about donald miller when we were off camera and you had mentioned and you know that man is have learned so much from story brand in how he tells his story but if you can tell the story and somebody can literally put themselves in that story because they can relate to it. I feel as though the story is is doing the work it was meant to do. And so to me. You have to have all those important elements that donald miller talks about in terms of putting a story together in order for it to resonate and a lot of my students who are just getting started though one and tell the story but with a one tells i hope so and so get x. Results they were this way. I and now. They're this way now like there before and after and done. But when i when i think about telling a good story i want to talk about the richness of it and i have a student. Her name is niro. she lives in los angeles. She's a single mom of three. Her mom lives with her. She was a not making barely any money as a baker and she knew she wanted a different life for her kids and she was working two jobs. One like chucky cheese and one baking out of her kitchen but then she realized how to create a digital course and she created her first digital course to create caramel candy apples. Who would have thought that a caramel candy apple. Digital course how to do it would be a huge success but she made over sixty thousand dollars on her first launch and then she did it again had the same success and when i asked her deniro what does this mean for you and she said all i wanna do is retire. My mom she cleans houses. She's she supported me. She is an amazing support to our family. I want to help her retire when when she told me that like my heart. Don't been but when i tell that story i don't just say how much deniro made in. What digital course she created. But i talk about what it means to her. And i think people can relate to that part of the story more than anything Yeah i mean just as you tell that story. I think everybody's going whoa caramel apples. And how could either something similar and caramel apples. That i'm going to sell an what did you do again. What did you teach on that web and like it just it pulls you win when you tell a story like that. So what What keeps us from telling the stories you know. I think we probably cognitively most business owners that have been around for a few years. Understand the power of story to some degree. I i know some of a struggle with feeling like we're wasting our audiences time or were belaboring things or it's not worth it. Why do we hesitate when it comes to this powerful mechanism you know. I can totally relate. When i first started telling stories. I would rush through him so quickly because i thought i was wasting. My audience is time like they wanted me to get to get to the point. And i i often Surround myself with a great storyteller. Because i love a good story and if you really think about your let's say you're out with some friends you're sitting around a fire and you all are just having a good time in someone tells a story and the when they add more detail when they add more layers to it when they really pull you in. You're like tell me more i'm here. I'm fully there. So you love that when they add the details and they really bring it to life. So why would it be any different. When you're telling your audience these really rich stories versus rushing to the punch line. It's the same kind of feeling they get on a webinar or had a campfire. And so i realized i needed to slow down so i did the exact thing that most of my students do they want to rush through it because they think they should and so. That's one thing another part in and this is gonna sound silly. And i've never really talked about this but we had to make it a practice in our business to get the stories like if we didn't have a process in the company to get these stories in the most richest way possible with all the details. I wouldn't be able to tell the stories so backup a little bit. We put a process in place where people can send us in their wins their results their satisfaction with our product and then we reach out to them on zoom and Someone on my team will do an interview and just ask them tons of questions and record it and transcribe it and then we kind of bring it into a story while my team then gives me all the details of that story so what my point was going to be is that i had to practice these stories if i want to add layers and richness to a story on a webinar or in a facebook. Live or on a podcast. I need a practice at a little meaning. I can't look at a bunch of bullets until the story. Well
The Big Story
As oil and gas declines, where do the workers go?
"Part. Three of our special five part series with the narwhal brings us to sharon riley. She is the l. berta investigative reporter for the narwhal. She's a lifelong alberton and she reports from the oil patch. Hello sharon hydrogen. How are you. I'm doing really well. And i'm excited to get a glimpse of what a really quickly. Changing industry Looks like on the ground. And why don't you just start. Maybe so we have someone to frame this around with telling me a little bit about dust. And taylor who is he and what did he do. It doesn't is one of the people that came across when i started looking into the energy transition in berta and what that really looks like on the ground for workers who are making the leap on their own so dustin was born in nova scotia. His his dad had worked in oil on an offshore oil rig there. He moved when he was a kid and he kind of has what. You would consider a fairly typical story for a lot of oil. Chris in this province but yeah i left left school before graduated and pretty much started working right off the hub and like most people numbered. I ended up in the energy industry working in oil and gas Making decent money. I mean it was pretty easy to find a decent job. He told me that it is first job. He made sixty thousand dollars a year. So i don't know about you. But when i was sixteen i was not making that kind of money. But that's a pretty typical story in alberta when the industry is booming oil and gas industry is booming. There's money to be made and of young people. Young men in particular in this province haven't always seen a reason to you know stick around pursuing education when you could support your family and your lifestyle so immediately right out the gate and what happened to him after he'd been there for a while and from your piece in your reporting i gather. It's not super uncommon these days. Yeah i mean. I think there are lots of reasons. Why an individual worker might decide that they want to shift out of the oil and gas industry their cultural reasons. You know a lot of oil and gas work involves working in a camp means being outta town away from home for at least a ten days if not a couple of weeks at a time. Which if you're if you're having if you have a family means you're away from your family for all that time as well. So what dozen described as a bit of a moral conundrum definitely remember watching the oil spill happen It was plastered all over the news for days. And i kind of watch this giant catastrophe. Just unfold in front of our eyes for days on end. Never really knowing what was going to happen. And it was kind of a heartbreaking moment he just suddenly something clicked in his mind where he decided that no longer could he work in an industry that he thought was detrimental to the planet and to future generations and he said that had a lot to do with him having kids and wondering about the world. They're going to live in and he decided to make a shift. It was a gamble for him. Where did he go well. He part of what does made him decide to make the shift as well as that. He lost his job so he lost his job so he went back to school retrained to be a solar installer in alberta. His story is the successful. He's now gainfully employed as a solar installer and he's completely left his oil and gas lifestyle. He can be home every night that that's not the reality for every worker who who may want to make a transition or have to. Because the job that they've had for many decades has disappeared. He had to do this on his own. You know he didn't have a lot of government support. There's no oil and gas transition worker program in alberta or in canada for that matter and so it's a. It's a financial gamble. It involves a huge lifestyle shift and something he took on his own. Before we talk about you know how the transition is moving along and what's to come. Can you give me a sense of just how prevalent of the oil and gas industry is in alberta. Because for for someone like me who's spends most of his life in ontario it can feel like everyone in alberta works in oil and gas. It can feel like that as well and there's are different stats out there. As to how many people are directly employed in the oil industry cap. Which is the canadian association of petroleum producers. An industry group. They said in two thousand seventeen so it's a couple years old now. There were hundreds of thousands of jobs from oil. And i think they said around three hundred and forty thousand now. Obviously that number has changed a bit since the pandemic kit. Everyone but it does go to show that. That's that's a large number of jobs and those are jobs directly related to oil so that doesn't include all of that hotels and hotel workers restaurant workers people who support the industry And the people who are directly employed in another way of looking at it is Looking at statistics. Canada figures statistics. Canada doesn't directly breakdown oil workers. It lumps them all in sort of what you might call extractive industries so that includes mining of all types oil and gas forestry fishing. And if you look at those numbers. One in every sixteen workers is employed in those extractive industries. So if you're in a room of sixteen people. One person is employed in that extractive industry. That is quite a few right. And where are we right now. I guess as we're talking in the transition towards renewable energy in in canada and around the world just in terms of how much longer that one in sixteen figure is going to be viable for albert. I think that's a million dollar question. We we hear a lot about the energy transition. We we hear from politicians and environmental groups. We've heard it from justin trudeau. We heard it from. Joe biden presidential debate that the us needs to transition away from oil. Even albert premier jason kenney has made reference to the energy transition is going to happen at some point here and just been pretty widely reported and repeated that if we're going to meet canada's climate targets many workers in fossil fuels will need to look for new jobs
Millennials heat up Seattle housing market
"We've all had a lot more time to assess our living situation since the pandemic and it seems a lot of people are making the move to homeownership but that doesn't mean it's gotten more affordable. In fact, Seattle's real estate market is hotter than ever. We've got the fastest rising house prices of any city in the country after Phoenix prices here jumped seven percent in July since last year despite the pandemic Catherine Shema belong is a real estate reporter at the Seattle Times she's here to explain hi Catherine. Hi Trish. Thanks for having me. It's good to talk to you again. The heat in the real estate market here is surprising to me given what I keep hearing about the economy were you surprised Oh Yeah I was floored I think it's counterintuitive to a lot of people as hundreds of thousands of Washingtonians. Lose their jobs that home prices would continue to go up. Yeah and where is the growth the market coming from this time around? What are people doing here? Well. That's another thing that's really surprising A lot of the growth is coming from first time homebuyers specifically millennials people who aren't normally interested in buying homes but we're in this sort of perfect storm where it's cheaper than it's ever been to own a house because mortgage rates are historically low that's incentivizing a lot of people who might not normally have started their house search to get on the market. It's also incentivizing people who already own homes who might have sold them to hold onto them to refinance to take some cash out of their homes maybe a to better weather what's coming in the pandemic? But inventories. So number of homes that are on the market is very low lower than it's been by some counts in two decades. Simultaneously Demand just keeps ticking up that is a formula for rising house prices right there high demand low inventory, but I want to break this down just a little bit because from what I understand about millennials right? They don't have a ton of money. They are first time homebuyers. About getting into a market where the median home price is around seven, hundred thousand dollars are the overextending themselves. Well, most growth that we're seeing it actually concentrated in the more affordable end of the market. So homes in the Seattle Center prices are going up, but they're more or less where they were about a year ago homes in places like Tacoma Lake Taps Auburn up north in snohomish county. That's where prices are really writing. We're seeing price growth in the double digits for homes that are less than four, hundred, sixty, thousand dollars. That's for the millennials are buying their homes and and that's really affecting affordability for a lot of people in the Seattle Area That's still an awful lot of money to break into a market I. Think if you live in the Seattle area, you just get used to seeing incredibly high housing costs. But again, when a millennial enters into an agreement to buy this large large purchase, are they banking at this point on a market that's going to continue to grow because I've been around long enough that I saw people get underwater really quickly when the market didn't pan out the. Way They thought it was going to a lot of experts that I've talked to think that Seattle's market is destined to keep growing maybe not at the scorching pace that we're seeing right now. But Seattle like San Francisco is afflicted with what we call the curse of the superstar city. There's so much wealth concentrated in industries like the Tech Industry for instance, and that really drives up housing prices that wealth those incomes they're out of set in some. With the cost of living for the rest of the people who live in the Seattle area. You also reported Catherine that people are leaving their apartments in troves. What's driving that? Things are driving that one. We've already talked about the low mortgage rates that's really pulling people out of their apartments but I talked to a couple a couple months ago who said they're both working from home and they said they were just getting sick and tired of stepping all over each other during the day. One of them's working in the bedroom. One of them's working in the living room and they were sharing a bell an apartment, and me just really wanted to see some green. They ended up moving to manage quality of life. They're getting a little more quality of life what about people though who can't get into the market right now? Is there an advantage to renting since so many people are leaving their apartments. There is an advantage to renting. We're seeing that rents in the Seattle area have dropped by nearly ten percent since the start of the pandemic, and that's not even counting the discounts that landlords property managers are offering attendance. Some of them are offering as much as two months free rent. Those are big savings right now. So if you can find an apartment, Dow was a good time to sign a lease, but there are some real. Losers from the current growth even a mortgage rates are lower than they've been any time ever. The ability of people to get a mortgage has become more constricted ben anytime in the past six years, we look at something called the mortgage credit availability index, and that's lower than it has been since March twenty fourteen. What that means is that it's harder for people who don't have corporate credit to get a mortgage and we know that. Black Americans Americans of color are disproportionately likely to have lower credit scores than their white counterparts. What that means is harder for black. Americans. To afford a home now and West before the pandemic right banks are much less willing to give money away at this point to people who don't have perfect credit, which really really leaves a lot of people especially in the Seattle area where it is really hard to live out in the cold. Here do you think that there is a tipping point for the Seattle market where home affordability just becomes too much and people end up like just packing up for the suburbs or for a different state because like I said, we see these housing prices in this area and I look in other parts of the country and I think oh my gosh you know I could do a lot better for myself. I think the answer is yes. Then, it started I realized that I could afford to rent a larger home outside of the city packed up and moved in our north. I think that the pandemic is giving a lot of people the chance to reassess whether living that being said I don't necessarily see price growth slowing down appreciably in Seattle in the near future. We just have so many people with so much wealth in the city and the wealth and poverty gap here are just getting wider. It's becoming more and more obvious that the line between making it and. Not Making it is pretty thin here. What about people who aren't rocking a tech salary in this city? What is the other side of the picture for them? The other side of the picture is getting forced out of neighborhoods they've lived in for a long time because they can't afford riding property taxes and moving out into south King County, Pierce County, snohomish county, or even further outside of the Seattle area. The last time we talked you were downtown in billtown looking out at a pretty empty city Catherine where are you living these days? These days I'm I'm way up north I'm actually Skagit County. Where I can have a house with a yard and a new puppy. So you are an example of what's going on in the city. You're not just a reporter live the life. That's right. I know it's happening because I live it. Catherine Shema belong excellent to talk to you. Thanks so much for your time. Thank you, Victor.
How To Scale Your Offer With Ravi Abuvala
"Everyone today we've got another special episode of Marketing School. At this time, it is with Ravi. Bhalla I think I got that right scaling with systems he's chief scaling officer. We're GonNa let him explain what that means in a second, but she's comes affirm that helps other companies scaled to multiple seven fighters using virtual assistant automation systems and I love nursing out on this type of stuff you know whether it's marketing whether it is you WanNa talk about mergers and acquisitions there always are systems that you have to follow and really great. To Have Ravi on the show. How's it going man? I'm Doin' excellent Eric. Thank you so much for having me on longtime listener actually just in the last guests that you had on us to swift. So that's actually how i. kind of had stumbled across through guys in the first place and everyone that's listening. You got so lending ears, I. Hope I gave you got some value today for sure it's going to be dig out as. Many nuggets as I can for everyone. So let's talk about it. I mean scaling what systems, what is your definition of it and maybe some practical kind of case studies examples yeah it'd be happy. So we essentially take businesses usually higher ticket service space businesses, and usually in the business sector. So online advertising, we've done real estate investing real estate residential search engine optimization. We've gone across the board, but essentially, what we do is we help. Them scale by setting in systems automations and the coolest part about it as we have a training center in the Philippines and we place fully trained virtual assistance inside of our clients companies at about three dollars an hour. So we essentially teaching them what they need to do or grow and scale sales, funnels automations add we can nerd out on that, and then we actually give them a virtual assistant that's going to do that work for them. Got So maybe I mean stories are always a good way to explain kind of what you do. So is a case that you can speak to his for example, I work with this type of company and we did this specifically and these are the results that they saw. A glove too. So there's a few different ones but I just was on a podcast little earlier on a day and gentleman was creating podcast essentially PR company where he gets other people on podcasts and explaining to him about a client of mine. Adam he is an incredible company mogul insider and he came to us he didn't really have know what he was doing. He said how what kind of run up your company but I don't know what I'm GonNa do and I look I've been on these PODCASTS, their incredible I've been monetize. An quite a bit just from the value on giving people reaching out to us as are the biggest issues in the marketplace is in this industry is you give people on podcast, but the other issue is that you're not figuring out teach people how to monetize that podcast like how do you actually make money from you just saying, Hey, I have a great product or service doesn't really do anything and so what we pretty much did is crap in a back end off for him so that he was actually teaching his clients, how to. Generate sales from the PODCASTS that they're getting on how to generate leads and sales from, and so we essentially helped him construct that and he came in literally dollars in the bank. When he started this product with us, we taught him Dave, the virtual system created a sales funnel forum, great video sales letter first thirty days he did about forty thousand dollars in monthly recurring revenue, and then within six weeks, he had about eighty thousand dollars monthly recurring revenue, and that's literally before he had even finished paying us off he was already at. Sixty thousand dollars a month recurring revenue from zero and it was because we were able to number. One system is the back end offer so that it was something that was the product market fit and just pour gasoline on the fire by having instagram outrage linked in outreach email advertising that kind of stuff. So just to clarify, did you take him from zero to eighty k. a month or so to sixty km length or both? So zero to sixty K. and then he actually joined my higher. Here's like look this works like with your. Higher level, and then we took him to eighty K. and we did that literally just by working a little bit closer with them and adding in I think organics are great way to start a you guys obviously deal talk about Seo Inorganic and we do that really really heavy. But at some point, obviously throwing in the paid ads aspect of it can really light a few on the fire and that's essentially where we did after we have a product market fit?
