"Alan Stay with us for the PBS news Hour comes on after the world this afternoon at three o'clock here on KQED Public Radio. Marco Woman, you're with the world. It is one of the biggest federal aid deal since the Great Depression. And this afternoon, the house voted yes, on it. $1.9 trillion We want to focus on just one part of it. The child benefit that will give most American families a guaranteed monthly income of up to $300 per child. The Biden administration says the goal here is to reduce child poverty. Many other industrialized countries already do something similar. Luke Schaeffer is the director of Poverty Solutions of the University of Michigan. I ask him about the range of countries around the globe that already have some sort of guaranteed monthly income for families. There's a lot of countries that do this already some for decades. So Canada, Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Australia. These are countries that have decided that hey, you know, raising kids is expensive, and the government has a reason Toc support parents in that work. So how long have these programs been around? Programs like this have been around for at least half a century. But you've seen an expansion of some of them in recent years, and the countries that looked most like us in Canada. They did a major expansion just in the last decade and have won quite a bit larger than what we're talking about in the United States, and it seemed really big poverty reductions and a lot of other positive things happen in the United Kingdom. They had an expansion of the child benefit along with a lot of other things in the 19 nineties, and they cut their child poverty rate in half. So in a few sentences, look How would the child allowance in the Biden stimulus plan actually worked, like start with Who gets it? The great thing about this is that it would treat families, middle class families and working poor families and very poor families. Exactly the same. It would be a tax credit. That would be something that would be administered monthly so families could count on $250 per child $300 per young child under sex. For every month, and this would be money that they could use to pay the rent. That could be money they could use to put food on the table. But it also could be money They used to pay for childcare and sometimes maybe make it possible for a parent to go to work. So as you said the UK put a similar policy in place in the late nineties has been expanded, and it's been successful in reducing child poverty. Can you tell us how that worked? And how does it compare to this plan from the Biden White House? In some ways? What the UK did in the 19 nineties looks a lot more like the system that we would have today. So they said during the 19 nineties, we really want to have a dramatic impact on child poverty in this country. They later down a bunch of different things. One was this sort of stable source of support in the form of a child benefit. But they also had a benefit that looks like our earned income tax credit in this program that says, if you work more actually, at low levels, we're gonna increase that support. And that's really important. Because what we know about a lot of the programs that we have in the United States, The ones that exist are that if your earnings go up your benefits go down. Right. So if you go to work for every dollar you earn, you're gonna lose 30 cents of your food assistance, for example, you might lose 30. Cents of Your housing assistance if you're lucky enough to have that, so I really eats into it. So the earned income tax credit is a program We have to try to counter act that in the other thing that UK did was raise the minimum wage. There is one key difference between the US and many of the other countries that you've cited that have a child allowance policy. A lot of this place is starting from a different place. I think of the UK they already had a social safety net. National health insurance, More comprehensive unemployment benefits more affordable, higher education. How does that change the equation for how effective a child allowance might be in alleviating child poverty in the U. S, which Is worse off than many of those other places. Well, I would say that this takes us that for is that in that direction of anything that we've done in the United States, for example, we've had a lot of success around expanding access to health insurance for kids starting in the 19 nineties, But there's still a lot of times when they might drop off that public benefit. Their mom loses a job and so they end up losing their health insurance. And you know this type of model right of the child alone, says Let's try to keep things simpler when we can let's pulled in as many families as we can provide them exactly the same benefit. So we are in a different starting point. But this is a move in that direction. The cash part of it actually takes a libertarian turn right and saying families know what they need the most right? And so we're gonna give them the resources they need to help their families in the way they know how. One key detail here. Look, the child allowance in the buying stimulus package will only be in effect for one year. Are you worried about what happens after that? Well, that's the question. I think this is one of those great opportunities where we can put this in place and we can see what Americans think about it. The Biden plan here in the United States is estimated by my colleagues at Columbia to reduce child poverty by 45%. That would be transformational. Luke Schaeffer is the cone Professor policy and director of poverty Solutions at the University of Michigan. Luke. Thank you very much. My pleasure. Thank you. This week's Switzerland passed a controversial referendum that bans face coverings by a razor thin margin 51 to 49%. That means the niqab and burka worn by some Muslim women are now prohibited in public. Referendum was championed by the country's right wing populist Swiss People's Party. Oscar Mussolini has been following this closely. He's a professor of political science at the University of Lasagne. Let's dive a little deeper into that political system in Switzerland. This unique emphasis on direct democracy referenda to legislate change. How have right wing parties like the Swiss People's Party use that system to dominate? Discourse. In the last 13 years, this party and in general right wing populist party has been able to use Barry Democracy referendum on the Constitution initiatives in order to push the on issues in the national agenda. Immigration, Of course, Islamic Muslims issues, of course. And the European Union issues. So the relation between Switzerland and the European Union and, of course, this relevant role in shaping sweets. Political gender is also important dams off electrons taxes, So this helps this parted to increase also its achievement in parliamentary election and government election as well. I mean, how is it being view, though in Switzerland? Is it a sign that the influence of the far right is growing? It's important to mention that some crucial policy orientation about immigration about asylum seekers as well oriented in a restricted way in the last 20 years. So sweet policy model in this way are being influenced by the right wing populist parties. Mobilization That's clear plastic on mainstream parties also share partially this opinion disorientation that's important. You say also that this part again for this party, I was stable presence in space. Pol Itics now since the nineties in the started to push immigration and European Union relation as a central topics central issue tonight in the nineties, and we stay here now again with this issues. I mean, the Central Council of Muslims and Switzerland said of the vote that it sent a clear signal of exclusion to the Muslim minority. So there seems to be some major tension. How does this system of the direct him opposite tradition actually square with the protection of minority groups? It's a controversial point because that'll democracy is Isaac Yushin, born as a protection for minorities, and the same time that our democracy is could be also a way by which majority imposed to the minority. Of course, in this sense, great attention. End in this case, it allowed to increase. Also the xenophobic also perception off some minority some mid ground groups, etcetera, that's a sort off contradictory effects off direct democracy at the moment. Oscar matter. Laney is a professor of political science at the University of Lasagne in Switzerland. Speaking with me about have a controversial.

You can find out more about her political pitch by heading to monaco dot com slash minutes. Those audits headlines. Back to you tyler. Thanks very much joe. Just gonna eleven here in zurich where we're going to stay in the country because we're heading down to the swiss capital bern right now for updates on a series of referendums that are taking place over this coming weekend. The most controversial of which is the move by the swiss people's party the pay to ban full facial coverings. I'm joined on the line now from burned by christoph lens he is the political editor at the tug zeiger. Also for the media group ta media. He's also a regular voice on monocle on sunday as well around this very table here in zurich good afternoon christoph. Good afternoon taylor. I'm very well. Thank you so i guess. The s p. The people's party probably didn't quite anticipate that we would almost a full year Where most people have been in a face coverings in public settings When they were looking to obviously table this. And i guess we should give this some some context. Anyone who's been following the the of course the swiss press Since this was really tabled. We're really at the core. we're talking about. It's a burqa ban. It's it's a ban on on the niqab but of course it has extensions As well during moments of civil unrest etc correct correct. Yeah it kind of adds the an ironic note to the whole discussion and politicians of the s. The people's party in switzerland have been saying for years that in switzerland. It's like it's tradition that you show your face when you go out to public places and now the same people are wearing masks while they bring forward this the way they make this point and it just seems a bit. Yes ironic but still at the discussion. It's quite intense. It's been going on for months now. And it's been like the probably the closest issue. We're going to following on sunday when people are going to the ballots How close is it at the moment because if we think back to last major referendum which of course we're covering here on multiple twenty four was considering the fighter jets That's that we will will switzerland. I should they be buying new aircraft to enhance the intercept capability. That really came down to the wire we were talking about. Almost less than a percentage point but nevertheless that is going. How close is this going to be. Do you think well according to recent surveys. We are really on a on a razor blade. More or less it could fall both sides and it seems to be. It's seems to be a question of who can bring out the vote in these last two days up to the to the to the to sunday and for for the last couple of as dynamic has been helping and like the ones who want to avoid banning the burqa with a constitutional ban. In fact we have seen a lot of feminists coming forward saying that this would lead to another politicisation politicisation of the of the female body. We put a dress code concerning female body into our constitution. So that has been kind of a game changer. In the couple of days maybe just put this into context for us because of course this is the first time we've seen such an initiative like this with within a european context and i guess the the background to this as well as the swiss do or at least many swiss do see that there is a way of of doing things. There is a swiss way. We heard about a swiss way this year in terms of dealing with the pandemic as well and as you said there is there. Is this sort of sense of of looking people in the eye. There is the tradition of shaking. Your teachers hander. There are a lot of social codes. Which i guess the swiss believe. You're coming into our country. This is the way things are going to be. And we're not looking to impose measures or we're not calling for referenda when we are other countries is that what's at the core of this or is or is there may be something a little more sinister absolutely no no. i think. That's quite the core of the whole debate. And then you of course you have this these social codes that you are To apply to or to go along with when you when you are in switzerland but then on the other hand switzerland being a very diverse country having religious minorities linguistic minorities ethnic minorities. Switzerland has a long tradition of having like laissez faire approach to the display of religious symbols and the towards religious minorities has proven to be very profitable for the country. In fact as you're as you're well aware that the the watch industry was brought to switzerland by who outs that. That fled from france in the sixteenth century during industrialization. Many of our most successful companies were founded by ingredients. Like henry nestle or or charles brown. 'bout the bovey who which you probably know his obit today so we're kind of it's it's going to be very interesting to see how we interpret these questions. Nowadays if we if switzerland remains or defense this openness towards religious minorities or if it wants to impose kind of social codes that Restrict how can behave or how swiss people can behaved in the public sphere. Kristof lens will be watching this before we should. We should also not forget that. Of course there was of course the the globally covered issue of course of the minaret issue as well which also the swiss voted in favor of of banning. Future construction of minarets. And of course this has obviously been front and center but We'll look for maybe a little bit of an update on this on on sunday when everyone heads to the polls Here's what's that was christoph lens. A political editor at targets on zeiger. You're listening to the briefing here on monocle. Twenty four away for a short break back after this novartis is proud to partner the briefing on monocle.

"A wolf attack. We got word that a wolf had been seen around here and we came straight up. We really hope nothing has happened. But look at this poor animal. It's still alive, but it's being ripped out by a wolf. It's just so sad. The wolf supporters should really see this. The most avatars always safe. Wolves came back to Switzerland in 1995 after being hunted to extinction a century ago. Environmental groups say it's a sign nature is regaining its balance. But farmers are losing livestock. They want the right to hunt the wolves, they say are responsible. Matias Mueller is a member of the Swiss People's Party. Traditionally a friend to the farmers, But not this time. I think the farmers to exaggerate we're talking about 400 cases. In a year. There's 250,000 sheep that are brought on the Alps during the summer. They left alone. There's no shepherd. There's no farmer who takes care just left alone out of 250,400 taken by the wolf, but nobody talks about the 5000 that die. Falling down the rocks getting injured. They get struck by lightning. Jones has it out belt. This was Parliament has tried to find a compromise that keeps everyone happy. A new law that would allow the local authorities to kill individual wolves. If they believe them to be in immediate danger to life, stock or people. Swiss President Simo Netta Sommaruga is urging voters to support it in cassettes meet come out. We're trying to be pragmatic. With this new law we want people and wolves to be able to co exist long term, this means in situations where the wolf begins to lose its natural shape. Minus two with humans to the local authorities should be able to act. MacLeish top most normal life, but environmental and wildlife groups across Switzerland are not convinced. Matias Mueller says the new law will tip the balance of nature right back towards humans. The very species that caused the wolves extinction in the first place with the new law, you could preemptively kill. Wolves or links or beaver or whatever without them, having done any damage, they say. It's enough if an animal shows.

I'M REBECCA A collared in Beirut people in Ireland are looking at a very different political future today something of a revolution in the ballot box. That's it's a quote from the leader of Ireland's left-wing Shin Fain Party Mary Lou McDonald describing this weekend's historic election of change zipping statements it system statements retirement Shin Fain beat Ireland's traditional ruling parties but just barely early. No party captured an outright majority. So now because it's a parliamentary system. The real fun begins time to build a ruling coalition regardless of what happens next ex-shin feigned success has taken many by surprise including former Irish. Prime Minister Bertie Ahern. I think we saw their poll rising M.. Alter last year both not to disobey extent they did very poorly in the local elections last summer and from the acid day a quickly how to review of their own strategies and policies at the say that was a successful review is an understatement because what they decided to do was was to focus on the homelessness housing and health and a went after those three issues so that resonated strongly with the with the electric actress and wellness that the government had not been seen to to be dating dot. Well which so. I think that's why they got their strength. was they had a narrow focus. I went after those issues has some very good candidates good performance on television and Mary. Lou McDonald who is a relatively new leader option. Fans at talent haven't taken over Gerry Adams only two years ago as she performed very well in the election campaign so listeners may be scratching their heads as we're talking about champagne and the republic the violent Because when you were prime minister you sign the Good Friday Agreement along with Tony Blair bringing peace to the north which is really where Shin Fain has their route? So how different is this Shit Saint Party you knew. Then from the part of the top these polls in the Republic of Ireland saying to to to be fair with over the last you know twenty years have have been moving towards mainstream as some of the policies might be considered a radical but they have been trying to move to more mainstream politics Komo other parties. So your party Fianna Fall had previously said they'd never go into coalition with Shit Fain. Is it time to change that view. I think there'd be a lot of discussion. The seats are still coming in. That won't be finished until tomorrow and are late tonight so I think there's there's going to be a lot of analysis now about who do wash at the moment fina gala said there will not Faint Fina fall of said they will not. Do you wish insane. Maybe not a strong feta. Gaylon Fall said they won't date with these other so I know in this political kind of a game somebody was going to have to change their position. Addition so I think there'll be a lot of soul searching and a lot of probably tar might around for the next few weeks and then dostal settled and people will have to see what kind of a combination of government they can put together so it means a people have to change from the positions. They've had so I think it'll be it'll be an interesting. Thank you weeks but I I do honestly believe it'll take a few weeks before you get care water. So what path do these results indicate what will be different in Ireland deficient fan. Dan Can consolidate its power. I wouldn't put too much money down on a bat dot says D- What happened on Saturday will happen again in a year's time or two years time but this time came at a large proportion you'll people listened to what the campaign us about change at about more radical politics and Unday bought into it now that bought into it in fairness to them for good reasons A lot of people can't afford housing a lot of you. Don't people are staying at home with their children fathers Older than they normally traditionally patiently ward. So in this case they champagne policy attractiveness allowed to support and people said okay. Let's give them a try. So I think from electrodes point of view if it was understandable at the level of the spread of it was was remarkable. Finally do you think this will lead to a referendum on a united Ireland now and should there be one my own view on that is it will happen eventually both Nas too quick and certainly not in in the next few years for this reason this reason maybe only that the proprietary work of how All that job is he's going to take some years and it hasn't been done so to prematurely tried to press for a border poll as it's called our United Ireland or New Orleans. It's not at the time to do that and to do it.
