"Palmer in the Bloomberg newsroom. Officers in Suffolk county are shutting down what they say was a cocaine pipeline in the Hamptons, four people were arrested and accused of selling cocaine for two years at bars and montauk and the surrounding area. Officials say the cocaine and fentanyl were mailed to montauk from suppliers in the Dominican Republic and New York City. The bust comes at a time when Suffolk county is leading the tri state area in opioid overdose deaths. Federal Reserve bank of New York president John Williams says interest rates need to rise to around four and a half percent over time.

Global news 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quicktake powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. I'm Suzanne Palmer. This is Bloomberg. You're listening to Bloomberg businessweek with Carol massar and Bloomberg quick takes Tim steinbeck from Bloomberg radio. Hi everyone, welcome to the weekend edition of Bloomberg business week. This past week saw the biggest two day rally in U.S. stocks since 2020 as investors continued a debate over a more or less hawkish fed. And then, while Elon and Twitter were the big tech topic of the week, it is really Elon's other business of self-driving cars that makes the cover this week. We'll get to that in just a moment. Speaking of innovation and change, we're going to explore the new world order. Many are facing when it comes to alternative energy, ecommerce, and E learning. We're going to speak with the CEO of Pearson, as well as the founder of olive. It's an ecommerce business with a mission to reduce waste getting rid of those cardboard boxes. Yeah, exactly. Plus stick around for our second hour, that's when we're going to talk about the power of quitting will do that with former pro poker player, any duke. All of that to come, but first we begin with this week's cover story in the magazine's features section. It's all about the driverless debate. Our humans better drivers than machines. For more, we turn to Bloomberg businessweek columnist, max chaffin, along with the editor of business week, Joel Weber. If you go back maybe a decade ago to Ted in these conferences, you had everyone basically going around and in particular Google kind of leading the charge, but also lots of automakers, lots of technologists, basically everybody saying, hey, you know, my kids ten and they're never going to need a driver's license. And that really became baked almost like conventional wisdom. Not just among technologists, but among policymakers, consultants everywhere, and you saw basically about 5 years ago, this amazing explosion of investment, not just Google and cruise, but smaller companies, basically everyone throwing billions into this field, and a lot of those a lot of that money has gone nowhere. We've seen a lot of stocks either crash in the case of aurora, which is one of these kind of bubbly self-driving companies, or in the case of a company like zoox, which was super hyped and then it kind of got swallowed up by Amazon. So it's just been a lot of kind of difficulty in the industry. Okay, so one of the sources in the story who has become something of a detractor is a name that we haven't really heard from for a while and that's Anthony Levin dusky. Anthony levandowski and what did he have to tell you? So he is one of the most interesting people in self-driving cars. He was for a really long time. I mean, you know, leading the charge, the charge that I was just talking about, talking about how great driverless cars are going to be. He is really the person who created to the extent that one person created the Google self-driving car or even the industry, it was him. And he went through this weird, very controversial journey. He went to Uber and then got caught up in this massive multi-billion dollar litigation over alleged trade secret theft wound up with criminal charges. He pled guilty, and then he was pardoned on the last day of the Trump presidency, and he's kind of come out the other end. Obviously with tons of baggage, very controversial, but sort of saying some things out loud that I think people in the industry were saying quietly for a very long time. And that is, this is not going as well as we wanted it to go. What's incredible about this guy is he's the one who sort of created the first version of autonomous vehicle, right? You describe this situation years ago where he took a Toyota Prius and got it to move across. Was it the bay bridge? Yeah, yeah, yeah. And it was four. It's funny. It was for a reality show. So, I mean, in this kind of driverless car world, he was sort of the scrappy entrepreneur, the one who was kind of trying to push it to commercialize. He took, as you said, he created a sort of hack together a Prius, drove it across the brave day bridge, and then that basically got swallowed up into Google, became the Google driver. But now he's doing something that is, you could argue, is sort of, I don't know, less complicated than that when it comes to the application of EVs. And using them on an industrial. And this actually, I think the

Not Prosecuting Low-Level Crimes Leads To Less Crime In Boston's Suffolk County
"A first of its kind study of suffolk county criminal cases has found that declining to prosecute some low level offenses can actually lead to less crime. The study analyzed more than sixty seven thousand misdemeanor cases in boston winthrop revere chelsea from two thousand and four to two thousand eighteen and it found that people arrested but not prosecuted on low level. Non violent misdemeanors were fifty eight percent less likely to commit another crime in suffolk county in the following two years. So this was welcome. News to suffolk county district attorney. Rachel rollins who pledged to not prosecute more than a dozen these types of crimes. When she ran for office in two thousand eighteen. She joined us just a little earlier today to talk about how the findings of the study line up with her agenda. You took a risk right off the bat you became. Da and you made this data available to see what it would tell us knowing that you were advocating for non prosecution of some low level crimes. So tell us how you believe. This data supports your approach. First off yes. I think within two weeks of being inaugurated right after january. Second twenty nineteen A great group of of women came to me and said can we sift through all of your data. But you can't instruct us in any way we have to have full autonomy to find what we find in be able to state with transparency. What that is. will you do it. And i signed immediately and said absolutely and so what i think the shows us going back to two thousand and four is that what many progressive prosecutors have been saying is that we should be focusing our attention more on the violent serious crimes in when people come into contact for low level nonviolent crimes when we are compassionate and allow them to go along on with their lives if they have mental health disorders substance use disorder. Something else often. Don't come back into contact with the criminal legal system and we are safer as a result of that
Supreme Court to Hear Appeal of Ruling That Overturned Boston Marathon Bomber's Death Sentence
"Radio boston. I'm donna deering and we start today with another major development in the country's largest drug lab scandal suffolk. County district attorney. Rachel rollins says that her office could vacate up to tens of thousands more criminal convictions. That were based on drug evidence tested at the now closed hinton lab. Wbu our senior correspondent. Deborah becker is reporting on the story. Deb joins us now dead. Welcome back to radio boston. Thanks for having me so deb. D. rollins is proposing to vacate any drug convictions based on results. From the hinton lab from may two thousand three to august two thousand twelve why that nine year time window will. That was the time period when two chemists worked at the hinton lab at the same time. Any dukan and sony ferrick you may remember. Both women were convicted on charges of tampering. With the drug evidence they were supposed to be testing fair conviction though stemmed from her work at the state lab in amherst but both women worked at the hinton lab. At one time. Eric worked there before she went to amherst. Rollin says what's needed is a more thorough review of all the drugs certifications that came from the hinton lab wild. Both women were working there. She calls the drug lab scandal. Systemic misconduct and a catastrophic failure of management that she says needs a complete review so all the testing done at that lab during that time should be looked at and we should point out that after both chemists were convicted tens of thousands of criminal drug convict. Convictions were dismissed because of their misconduct. We're talking about more. Give us a sense of scale here. Deb how many people might this effect will will. There's no precise number but rollins office says is that the hinton lab certified almost eighty three thousand drug samples for evidence during that time and that was in suffolk county and the massachusetts supreme judicial court which has reviewed various challenges and calls for a way to deal with all of the cases in both labs has vacated thousands of convictions based on the testing and hidden lab alone about eight thousand from hinton so the remaining seventy four thousand drug certifications that rollins talking about from suffolk county. She says her office is going to review all of those and they could be part of what she says is a global resolution to deal with these cases once and for all and thousands more convictions could be erased. But there's no exact number because one drug certification could have several drug certifications could have been done for one case so. The exact number is unclear. Got it got it. But it's it's a lot to review. So how does it work are they. Are they essentially starting deb with the assumption that all the convictions must be vacated and then working backward from there as they review the cases. How are they gonna do this well. She says she's going to convene robin says. She's going to convene a summit next month with the defense bar to start this review look at every affected case all the drugs certifications and determine next steps and she says any relief in what she's calling her hinton lab initiative is only for controlled substances convictions. And if someone was charged with something else along with drug use or possession or whatever the drug charges may have been those charges withstand this would only be drug charges in a particular case and then after that they would look at expunging records. If need be it would be a very lengthy complicated process. So our defense attorneys reacting to this well The aclu the american civil liberties union of massachusetts which was the agency really primarily involved in fighting with the s sjc to try to get some sort of resolution for many of these cases that were based on evidence tested at the hinton lab and at the amherst lab. It says it is. It's pleased that rollins has done. This here is matt siegel whose legal counsel for the aclu of massachusetts certainly would our preference and the preference of the public defenders are law firm partners for all of these cases have been dismissed when we first started calling for that step in twenty twelve. There's a saying about the arch of justice and At this point were very glad that seems to be bending in the right direction. I think as referring there to the you know the arc of the moral universals long but it bends toward justice but regardless also the State criminal defender agency. The committee for public counsel services released a statement after They heard about rachel rollins initiative the hidden lab and it also said that. It's pleased that this is happening. And it hopes that other district attorneys will do the same. So will they deb. Do you think we'll other. Da's follow suit. And i guess. I'm wondering if somehow this forces their hands if they have to. Now i don't think anyone necessarily

Well, I felt it was important, since this is really dominating the news cycle and, of course, New York City News really dominates the news in the suburbs. I just wanted to make it very clear to our residents. That the safest place for kids right now is in school. The schools, you know, it's a little bit different in Nassau County. So in the city, the mayor is in charge of the schools. Out here in Nassau County. We have 56 independent school district with their own elected boards. They make their own policy and make their own decisions, of course, with guidance from the state. Um, but my goal is to make sure that our health department, our county Health department Is working with them, helping interpret the guidance, helping them with contact tracing etcetera, and we've made very good relationships. So my goal is to get the word out there that it's very important for kids to stay in school right now. As I said, it's the safest place for kids are 56 school districts have really and I have kids in public school myself. They've done a fantastic job at this social distancing and ensuring math compliance and having kids on alternate days and all of that. They've really recalibrated quickly, and we're not seeing transmission within the school buildings. So you know, you did mention where a 3.5 yesterday. Our latest number was 3.3% that is concerning because we had been down it around 1% positivity rate, but the uptick isn't happening in the schools.

But people are still having these sweet sixteens and going off to other states to have big weddings and then coming back. That's where we're seeing the uptick. So I'm saying to everyone in the You can hear my voice. If you know you're not worried about yourself. You're not worried about your family. Think about the kids who need to be in school. Think about the businesses that need to operate. Keep people working. And, um, you know, as I said, school is safe right now, and I'm closing schools should be a last resort. That's what the CDC Protocol say in anything like a flu like pandemic Closing schools is the last resort. In March. It made sense. We got to that point We had 50% You know, we're getting into 50% positivity rate. At that point. It makes sense. At this point. It just doesn't make
