"No by sunny sang. The song is a sick devotional song often sung at funerals. It's about finding solace in connection and dark and desperate times. this is democracy now. I mean he good minutes. We turn to the fight over corporate taxes. President biden's proposed scrapping his plan to raise the corporate tax rate. If republican lawmakers agreed to support at least a trillion dollars in infrastructure spending biden had previously called for rolling back trump's corporate tax cuts by increasing the rate from twenty one to twenty eight percent. But he is now offering to keep trump's tax cut and shrink the size of his infrastructure proposal in exchange for minimum fifteen percent tax rate for all companies. This all comes as president biden heading to the g seven meeting in britain where he's expected to push for a global minimum tax rate to make it harder for companies to stash their earnings in tax havens. Still with us. Jeffrey sachs director of the center for sustainable development at columbia university. So your comments on what's happening here in the united states and also the corporate overall tax rate You are very critical of biden for not his original infrastructure plan but what he's doing now with the republicans well. I was shocked and dismayed and hope that it doesn't go anywhere but the corporations have had an unbelievable run of unjust an audible tax cuts that's true for decades. The corporate taxes right now collected a little bit more than one percent of gdp in a booming period of corporate profits. Another words we given away the store. The republicans especially gave away the store and twenty seventeen president biden said okay. We'll restore half of what was given away still leaving the company's effectively with a tax cut from thirty five percent to twenty eight percent under biden's plan and then yesterday apparently he's said to the republicans. Well maybe we'll leave it at twenty one percent god i. I hope that this doesn't happen. It would be the biggest single defeat for basic social justice and affordability of what we need to do through government that i can imagine because everybody that looks at this understands what was given away to. The corporations was both unjust and unaffordable. And so biden's plan. Well it was only partial at least pointed in the right direction. Why did he put that on the table. He didn't even have a deal. What kind of negotiating is that. And of course this is because we are a plutocracy. we are a corporate driven society. Our infrastructure is crumbling and the company. Say yeah build the infrastructure. But don't charge us for any of it in the meantime. The ceo's are at laughing at us because their compensation is now more than three hundred pounds average. So please president biden. We put you in office to help fix this country not to continue with the trump plan. For god's sake it's simple it's complicated. What is this negotiation about to preserve the trump tax cut. That's why we had the twenty twenty election. So what do you think it would take. Part of. The problem is we. Have we have two democrats who are seemingly more republican than republican in this Senators cinema mansion. I don't get it because joe mansions constituents need this program perhaps more than any other state in the whole country and mansions holding out. Saying i don't know i don't want to vote for anything that the republicans don't agree to in the meantime mitch. Mcconnell says his hundred percent effort is to destroy this administration and to preserve the trump 'isms of the last four years. So what what is mentioned doing is he representing. The people of west virginia is he laughing as the corporate shell. I don't get it but this is what we're facing right now. This is a big issue for this country because if we can't pay for the basic things we need if we can't pay for a clean energy system for safe water for digital people who can't afford it for a transport system that can work for the twenty first century and if the corporation say count us out we just love our billions and we don't wanna put in anything. Well what are we going to have as a country and president biden is there to turn this around and he made perfectly fine proposal and he should take to the american people and make the case because right now all of the opinion polls show overwhelming american support for taxing the corporation's overwhelming american support for taxing the rich. It's probably the biggest consensus in this country. It's not the consensus of the plutocrats in congress. The republican party in the hands of billionaires. It's pretty simple stuff so should not be backing down. So president biden calls out cinema and mansion on tuesday when he gave this Tulsa race massacre address in oklahoma and on thursday he caves to the republicans and mentioned in cinema continuing to say they will not back off of Supporting the filibuster. But let me take that corporate tax global your comment. Finally we just have about thirty seconds on the g. Seven finance ministers agreeing to support a global minimum corporation tax rate What would that mean globally. Well this is an important step. Let's make sure. It's also not filled with the united states. The uk switzerland netherlands and very few other countries created a tax abuse system which we call tax havens. It's a system for cheating so they need to close it up. They made it and they can stop it and putting in a minimum tax for corporations so that they can't abuse all of us is a first step. So i'm hoping that this is real and that it's going to go through. It is important positive. Step jeffrey sachs.

Very tired. i think we're trying to reach everyone with the dullsville. I think what we've what tau is. Yes people need to know about the goals. Yes it's great the we're wearing badges and people understand and asserting recognize the brand behind it but it is about the facts behind the goals and what people can do about it.

But then absolutely being clear about what people can do about it whether it's piping part of a campaign or movement whether it's taking individual action whether it's been part of speaking to businesses about what more they can do an oversee politicians to holding everyone accountable to that but finding ways to communicate better at what these real facts are. I just jumped up a goal. I'm sorry i'm using my points about wiki loves sdg's so bring my words together. It was fantastic. There were hundreds of volunteers who have increased thousands of articles on the goals. Were really quite badly represented.

"Ben Shapiro show. So there's a brand new study out today. It is a study from the World Economic Forum the world happiness report is what it is called. And they have essentially argued that the top the happiest countries. Our countries olive Bernie Sanders is favourite non-socialist countries. You'll hear people on the left constantly suggests these are socialist countries, they're not socialist countries in many measures. They rank is more economically free than the United States. Many of them have lower tax rates than the United States when it comes to corporate tax rates, although they are very high individual tax rates or sales tax rates are all capitalist countries with heavy social social welfare states piled on top of them. Well, this new study suggests that Finland has now been crowned the happiest country in the world for the second year in a row leading up a top ten that has made a five Nordic nations the world happiness report was released today. You're gonna see lots of headlines about it ranked one hundred and fifty six countries buy happiness levels based on world factors such as life expectancy, social support and corruption. Well, the Nordic nations of Finland Norway, Denmark, Sweden Iceland, top the table. There was no sign of Britain in the top ten UK placed fifteenth the United States placed its lowest ever at nineteenth. The north African nation of south Sudan was at the bottom of the happiness index which makes perfect sense America has been getting less happy each year, even as the country becomes richer falling from fourteenth place in over over just the last couple of years, which supports the thesis of my new book the right side of history that we're all really angry at each other despite enormous economic power despite tremendous equality of opportunity is the second year, the UN sustainable development solutions network evaluated one hundred seventeen countries by the happiness and wellbeing of their immigrants as part of the annual report Europe's Nordic nations. None particularly diverse notes the Daily Mail have dominated the index since it. I was produced in two thousand twelve Finland took the top score they narrowly beat Denmark, Norway, and then it was Netherlands at the very bottom. It was south Sudan, the Central African Republic Afghanistan. Tanzania Rwanda Yemen, Malawi, Syria, Botswana, Haiti and Zimbabwe. Russia is at sixty eighth Francis. Twenty-fourth China is at ninety third. Was the Daily Mail points. Out Finland is relatively homogeneous about three hundred thousand foreigners and residents with foreign roots. At a five point five million people, it's largest immigrant groups come from other European nations. There are communities ghanistan, China, Iraq and Somalia now the way that they want you to read this in the media the way that they want you to read the story is that these countries are all happy because they have vast social welfare states. If that's the case, why is France ranked below the United States. Why is that Britain has been dropping in the ranking? Why is it that these Nordic countries are doing so? Well. Well, Jeffrey Sachs, the director of center for sustainable development at Columbia said quote, the long-term rise in income per person has been accompanied by several trends adverse subjective wellbeing. Worsening health conditions for much of the population declining social trust and declining confidence in government. Whatever benefits in subjective. Well, being might have accrued as the result of rising incomes seems to have been offset by these adverse trends, the prevalence of addiction in American society seemed to be on the rise perhaps dramatically. They include gambling social media use video gaming shopping and consuming unhealthy foods. Okay. But that has nothing to do with the government programs that supposedly are making people happy. Plenty of countries that have universal healthcare that are ranked below the United States in these rankings. But yes, still the the the maintenance of the left left is going to maintain that. This study demonstrates that the United States is lagging because what we actually need is more government. There's only one problem when you look at the UN's world happiness report what they actually measure is not is not how happy people are with government alone. All they do is. They measure one question one question. And then they tried to back fill the rationale for the question with six different factors factors that include life expectancy and income per capita and self assessment of generosity oddly enough, not actual generosity self assessments of generosity. According to Marcus Cornyn over in Africa, check dot org. He says the happiness report uses data collected by Gallup, a management consulting company known for its public opinion. Polls for the report Gallup asks the same questions every time in the same way. And they asked this question in an annual worldwide survey, quote, please imagine a ladder with steps numbered from zero at the bottom shootout at the top suppose, we say that the top of the ladder represents the best possible for you. And the bottom of the ladder represents the worst possible. Life for you on which step of the ladder. Would you say you personally, feel you stand at this time assuming that the higher the better you feel about your life and the lowered the staff the worst, you feel about it which step comes closest to the way you feel? Well, that's a weirdly worded question because it sort of depends on your aspirated. So if you have a nation of people corresponding to something greater and fall short, they're gonna be more dissatisfied than a nation of people who are satisfied with where they are. Well, social democratic countries typically have a lot of people who are pretty satisfied with where they are. But more importantly, one of the reasons that social democratic nations are doing well is because before they were social and democratic before they were socially democratic before they had these giant social welfare state high levels of social cohesion. Nina, San Anton, Nima Scientology is the author of a book called understanding Nordic success. And he says in this book, the homogeneous Nordic countries have adopted cultures with strong social cohesion resulting in the highest levels of trust in the world. This is maintained when Scandinavians move abroad among the US population. Those with Scandinavian origins have the highest levels of trust Americans of Scandinavian descent even have slightly higher levels of trust. Then the populations of Scandinavian countries themselves. This suggests that the origin of the Nordic culture of success predates modern welfare states after all large-scale migration of Scandinavians to the United States occurred during the late nineteenth century and the early twentieth century before the shift toward welfare state policies. In other words in countries that have a high level of homogeneous entity and shared social fabric. People tend to be happier. Which is one of the reasons why the United States really has to reinforce our credo commitment. We have to reinforce what it is to be an American, and then we all have to be pulling toward the same goal. This foolish notion that diversity alone. Strengthens us is nonsense. Diversity strengthens us. If we share a common goal if we share a common mission. Then it's not going to matter. What color people are or where they are from. But if you don't have that then people do sort of have to look alike to get along. This was found not by a white supremacist by Robert Putnam Robert Putnam, the sociologist at Harvard University who suggested that as diversity goes up diversity of a population goes up, the only two things that reliably go up our protest marches and television watching that is unless you have a common goal. That's what makes America incredible. That's what makes the west good common principles that we share common principles that we are all supposed to pull towards and if we don't understand those common principles. Well, then we are quite likely to fragment, and that's what you've seen in the United States levels of trust coining because we don't share the same common goals anymore because people have believed Barack Obama. Barack Obama said we can all defined liberty in our own way. Bizarre statements. How can you expect to have a country when we all defined liberty in our own way. What if I had to find liberty is taking your stuff or punching you in the mouth. What if I defined liberty is damaging you or what if I had to find liberty as the things necessary to make me feel free. Even if that means impinging on supposed rights that you have. Well, if that's the case, then obviously, we're not going to get along you need to have common principles. High levels of trust a strong, work ethic and social cohesion are the perfect starting point. For successful. Connie's says some Anton says summons, Angie. They're also cornerstones a fruitful social democratic welfare policies, a pre existing high level of social cohesion allows welfare states and high taxes to be implemented without the same impact on work habits as such policies might have a different environment. But welfare policies can affect cultures in long-term. We're going to have to see how the social welfare policies of the Nordic states maintain over the course of dozens of years and decades not over the course of the last ten or twenty years. In fact, it hasn't worked all that great. If actually had to cut back the commitments to social welfare increases as well as Tim Gration. So the the baseline notion that these countries are happier. And then attributing that to bigger government, which is what you're going to see from the media. That is not correct. It's not because of healthcare outcomes. First of all it is worth noting that you're comparing completely non comparable populations. When you compare the population of the United States to the population of Scandinavia, if you want to compare to the population of the United States, the population of Scandinavia in terms of healthcare outcomes than what you really should compare Scandinavians in America and Scandinavia in Scandinavia. The fact is that different cultures different ethnicities have different health outcomes. Mean that again is not all biological in some cases, it's biological in some cases, it has cultural. But if you're going to compare apples to apples, you need to compare apples to apples these studies don't do that. They simply suggest that you can take every every country is those tabula Rasa blank slates. And then you can suggest that the reason there are differences is not because of culture or ideology or constituency the reason there are differences is because one has a better level of government than the other. This is not a single factor analysis, nor should it be put some flaws in this particular, this particular world happiness reporting just one second first. Let's talk about how you get ready for work in the morning. I love the Dollar Shave Club has everything I need to look feel and smell my best. What I love you even more is the fact that I never have to go to a store. That's because I yes, he delivers everything I need right to my door and second they keep me fully Stockton. What I use? So I don't run out. Here's how it works dollarshaveclub has everything you need to get ready. No matter what you're getting ready for. They've got you covered head to toe. Oh, your hair your skin your face. You name it. They've got it. And they have a new program where they automatically keeps. Us stocked up on the products you use you determine what you want. And when you want it it shows right at your door from once a month. Once every six months, that's what I do for amber, lavender body cleanser, it is delightful. It smells great plus with their hands and discount, the more you buy the more you save..

"Welcome back. This is the Ben Shapiro show. There's a brand new study out today is a study from the World Economic Forum the world happiness report is what it is called. And they have essentially argued that the top the happiest countries are all Nordic countries olive Bernie Sanders is favourite non-socialist countries. You'll hear people on the left constantly suggests these are socialist countries, they are not socialist countries in many measures. They rank is more economically free than the United States. Many of them have lower tax rates than the United States when it comes to corporate tax rates, although they have very high individual tax rates or sales tax rates are all capitalist countries with heavy social social welfare states piled on top of them. Well, this new study suggests that Finland has now been crowned the happiest country in the world for the second year in a row leading up a top ten that has made a five Nordic nations the world happiness report was released today. You're gonna see lots of headlines about it ranked one hundred and fifty six countries buy happiness levels based on world factors such as life expectancy social support. And corruption. Well, the Nordic nations of Finland Norway, Denmark, Sweden Iceland, top the table. There was no sign of Britain in the top ten UK placed fifteenth in added states placed its lowest ever at nineteenth. The north African nation of south Sudan was at the bottom of the happiness index which makes perfect sense America has been getting less happy each year, even as the country becomes richer falling from fourteenth place in over over just the last couple of years, which supports the feces of my new book the right side of history that we're all really angry at each other despite enormous economic power despite tremendous equality of opportunity. It's the second year, the on sustainable development solutions network evaluated one hundred seventeen countries by the happiness and wellbeing of their immigrants as part of the annual report Europe's Nordic nations. None particularly diverse notes the Daily Mail have dominated the indexes since it. I was produced in twenty twelve Finland took the top score they narrowly beat Denmark, Norway, and then it was Netherlands at the very bottom. It was south Sudan Central African Republic. Ghanistan Tanzania Rwanda Yemen, Malawi, Syria, Botswana, Haiti and Zimbabwe Russia is at sixty eighth Francis. Twenty-fourth China is it ninety third. Was the Daily Mail points. Out Finland is relatively homogeneous about three hundred thousand foreigners and residents with foreign roots. At a five point five million people, it's largest immigrant groups from other European nations. Their communities ref ghanistan, China, Iraq and Somalia. Now the way that they want you to read this in the media the way they want you to read this story is that these countries are all happy because they have vast social welfare states. If that's the case wise, France ranked below the United States. Why is that Britain has been dropping in the ranking? Why is it that these Nordic countries are doing so? Well. Well, Jeffrey Sachs, the director of center for sustainable development at Columbia said quote, the term rise in US income per person has been accompanied by several trends adverse subjective wellbeing. Worsening health conditions for much of the population declining social trust and declining confidence government, whatever benefits in subjective. Wellbeing might have accrued as the result of rising incomes seems to have been offset by these adverse trends, the prevalence of addiction in American society seemed to be on the rise perhaps dramatically. They include gambling social media use video gaming shopping and consuming unhealthy foods. Okay. But that has nothing to do with the government programs that supposedly are making people happy. There are plenty of countries that have universal healthcare that ranks below the United States in these rankings. But yes, still the maintenance of the left left is going to maintain that. This study demonstrates that the United States is lagging because what we actually need is more government. There's only one problem when you look at the UN's world happiness report what they actually measure is not is not how happy people are with government alone. All they do is. They measure one question one question. And then they tried to back fill the rationale for the question with six different factors factors that include life expectancy and income per capita and self assessment of generosity of the NFL actual generosity self assessments of generosity..
