"He and they've won chain dolls and fifty two medals even all that. You can't exactly say they not here with the success. Right likes that. Karen pender in tokyo. Thanks very much indeed. You're listening to the globalist on monocle. Twenty-four with me georgina. Godwin and let's continue now. Is today's newspapers. So joining me from osceola exterior is emily. Who's program coordinator for peace mediation at zurich. Good morning to you. Thanks for for joining us. We're looking at vaccination rates in switzerland to begin with. Tell us more. Good morning georgina. So targets and seiger reports and vaccination rates in switzerland and elsewhere in the world and they note that as of yesterday approximately fifty five percent of this population had been vaccinated at least once which represents in fact the lowest percentage in western and southern europe so the eu average is around sixty percent which is higher than even the most vaccine friendly. If you will canton of zurich in switzerland where around fifty eight percent happy vaccinated. So switzerland's vaccination campaign peaked On june tenth when around ninety two thousand doses were administered Per day and since then. That number has dropped Quite drastically by around eighty percent to around twenty thousand doses per day. And why do we know why. I mean what explains that. Low percentage So there are a few reasons. The article points through and So i a cultural one. App has perhaps the least likely one but they are large immigrant communities in switzerland Particularly from the balkans where you see some of the lowest vaccination rates in europe Partly due to a widespread pabst deep-seated mistrust them in state power but the second and perhaps more compelling reason in switzerland is The swiss people's party and other sentiments in switzerland against vaccination so There's another piece in targets on tiger the points to fifty one percent of Swiss people party voters not wanting to get vaccinated which is significantly higher than the second highest percentage. Which is among the greens at around eighteen percent. And this is comes as no surprise to. I think swiss audiences who followed some public discourse and even witness say the federal councillor william our himself from as volpe saying that he doesn't need the second shot because he's quote unquote tough enough now. The third reason just very briefly they point to in. This article is the lack of incentives in switzerland. So the scientific task force has in fact recommended At the government to providing a further incentives for people to get vaccinated at the moment one does not really need to show their kovic certificate too often in switzerland. Say to enter a restaurant or theater or cinema. Whereas we've seen initiatives like his work relatively well in france or in the united kingdom. What about getting in and out switzerland. Because i try to attend for for a work thing a few weeks ago and was up so even though we appeal to the ministry and zone was absolutely not allowed in so If you have gotten your two shots or you've recovered From covert and got any first shot. you should be allowed to enter switzerland If you have not been vaccinated you need to have very legitimate. Reason beat for work reasons for medical reasons. In order to enter switzerland and this has to be assessed by the state secretary yet for migration and again It's up to their discretion to determine whether your reason for entering. Switzerland is important. Enough light okay. Well let's go to a completely different parts of the world an a different story. This is the f. t. And it's buried inside the papers page four and it's about rwanda sending troops to mozambique. Just tell us more about this verb. I what is happening in. Cuba del gado. Which is the the northern province of of mozambique. That's right so There's an ongoing conflict if you will in the northern province of capo delgardo in mozambican. This is one of the poorest regions of mozambique yet. It's the area where you have. Multi billion dollar gas reserves. And you've had mold multinational corporations active in developing project in this region So a local al-shabab militia group with relatively loose ties to the islamic state or is has been active Since twenty seventeen and this conflict has in fact been escalating so in two thousand twenty. You had around seventeen hundred deaths which was compared to around two hundred a year Two years earlier in two thousand eighteen So there's been a lot of pressure on the mozambican government to accept Help From regional and international Partners especially since an attack Back in march in the coastal town of palma which really forced the french energy giant total shutdown. It's natural gas project in the region. So now ruanda has dispatcher. One thousand strong brigade of policemen police and soldiers to this region Along with a contingency from the southern african development community or saddik Which has deployed multinational force and this represents one of the first times that ruined Is active beyond its immediate. Let's say region of Concern when it comes to security so eastern. Drc uganda or burundi. So why is poor. Tagami rhonda keen on helping mozambique. What's in it for him so there are few a different assessments of the situation. One is perhaps a financial one So sending Troops can be if it's paid for by others lucrative however for instance. The french have Come out to say that they have not footed the bill for the ruined and deployment even if their fringe of course economic interests in this region. But perhaps the more convincing argument is an interest by polka gourmet to really project the power image in the region. And he's done this already previously by deploying various peacekeepers i believe rhonda continues to be the third largest contributor to peace-keeping missions worldwide again. It comes to An image a political image a question in the region and more broadly internationally. I would point. Listen here to On meet the rightist program where there's a wonderful book called do not disturb By michaela wrong who actually challenges the conventional narrative about pool. Kagami is the great savior of ruanda And just puts a different spin on that very interesting. If that's a part of the world that that The that piques your interest Let's move on now to a finnish newspaper. And what they're saying about italy that's right so we've Many of us probably have heard about The attack on. It systems of the company that manages the kobe. Nineteen vaccination appointment booking system in the region of lazio in italy which is the most popular one of the most populous regions into country. Would around six a million inhabitants. on sunday. they had to shut down the system due to Cyber attack and This of course in a time of vaccination roller being of utmost importance is A drastic concern To the authorities so the regional health counselor alessio d'amato called this attack prince. Most serious cyber attack ever carried out on an italian public and in administration They're expected to be up and running again on thursday but they've launched an investigation to really see Who's behind this attack. And how could this be prevented in the future. And what does it tell us about. Broader implications for cybersecurity. That's an interesting question georgina. I think we've witnessed several Let's say high profile attacks this year cyber-attacks we've witnessed a colonial pipeline in the us and more recently. And i was also here in monaco. Talking about this when Five hundred supermarkets in sweden had to shut down because they're tills just stopped working and this was because of an attack on a software supplier in florida. And i think this comes down to the question of supply chain attack so no longer do ahead to hackers have to attack just one company to Attack the company in question would rather they can attack a supplier and claim multiple victims. Not just in that county. But around the world and we witness in italy as well With a company providing the service of a booking system being attacked and this impacting a whole region and their healthcare system and then finally very quick look at. I suppose what would be now deemed as vintage or antique video games making millions. That's right so housing in santa monica reports On auctions of video games are being rather successful so in a couple of weeks ago in mid july made a new record The heritage auctions house In the us sold a nineteen ninety-six super. Mario sixty four game for one point five million. Us dollars so this was the first time ever video game was sold for more than a million dollars and the previous record had been said just a couple of days earlier when the legend of zelda game had been sold for around eight hundred seventy thousand.

"Child three hundred dollars per young child under sex four every month and this would be money that they could use to pay. The rent could be money. They they could use to but food on the table but it also could be money. They used to pay for childcare. And sometimes maybe make it possible for apparent. Go to work so as he said that. You put a similar policy in place in the late nineties. It's been expanded. And it's been successful at 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 with the uk did in the nineteen. Nineties looks a lot more like the system that we would have today so they said during the nineteen nineties. We really want to have a dramatic impact on child poverty in this country but they layered on a bunch of different things. Was this sort of stable sources 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 were going to increase that support in. 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 our that is your earnings. Go up your benefits go down right so if you go to work for every dollar you earn you're gonna lose thirty cents of your food assistance for example. You might lose thirty cents of your housing assistance. If you're lucky enough to have that so it really ease into it. So the earned income tax credit is a program we have it tries to counteract that in the other thing that you did was raise the minimum wage. There is one difference between the us and many of the other countries that you've decided that have a child allowance policy. A lot of those places started 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 alleviating child poverty in the us which is worse off than many of those other places. Well i will say that this takes us the 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 to health insurance for kids starting in the nineteen nineties. But there's still a lot of times when they might drop off at public benefit. Their mom loses the job and so they end up losing their health insurance. And you know this type of model rate of the child allowance says. Let's try to keep things simpler when we can. Let's bolden many families as we can provide them exactly the same benefit so we are in a different starting point. This is a move in direction. The cash part of it actually takes a libertarian term. Right in say families know what they need the most right and so we're going to give them the resources. They need their families in the way. They know how one key detail here. Luke the child allowance on the biden. Stimulus package will only be in effect for one year. Are you worried about what happens after that. Well that's a 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 located by my colleagues columbia to reduce child poverty by forty five percent. That would be transformational. Luke shafer z. Cohn professor policy and director of poverty solutions at the university of michigan. Luke thank you very much my pleasure. Thank you this week. Switzerland passed a controversial referendum that bans face coverings by a razor thin margin fifty one to forty nine percent that means the niqab and burqa worn. By some muslim women are now prohibited in public. The referendum championed by the country's rightwing-populist swiss people's party oscar lane has been following this closely. He's a professor of political science at the university of lausanne. Let's dive a little deeper into that political system. In switzerland this unique emphasis on direct democracy. Referendum to legislate change. How have right wing parties. Like the swiss people's party use that system to dominate discourse in the last thirty years this party and general populace far as being able to use dynamo democrats. You're referendum and constitutional initiatives in order to push on issues in the national agenda immigration of course islamic muslims issues of course and european union issue so the relation between switzerland and european union. And of course. This role in shaping. Swiss political agenda is also important dams off electrons success. So this helps the spotlight to increase. Also it's an achievement in parliamentary election and government election swell. I mean how is it being viewed 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 as you don't seekers as we reentered in restricted way in the last twenty years so Policy model in this wing are infants by deriving properties. Part mobilization. That's clear plastic on mastering also share partially these being in these organization. That's important to say also that this bar. I've spotted as stable presence in politics now since the nineties indie started to bush immigration and european union relation as a central dopp picks central issue in the nineties and weights. They year now again. With these issues i mean. The central council of muslims in switzerland said of the vote that has 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 democracy tradition actually square with the protection of minority groups. It's a controversial own. Because they democracy is fusion born as up protection for minorities and the same time diagnosed..

Swiss seen backing proposal to ban face coverings in public

"And fever of a ban on feast covering, such as the burka and the niqab worn by Muslim women. The right wing Swiss People's Party had put forward the proposal in a referendum using slogans such as Stop Radical Islam on posters depicting veiled women. But critics called it absurd and Islam before big, pointing out that only a few dozen of Switzerland's 400,000 Muslims. Actually we're feast coverings. This Muslim women, said the campaign and sent out a divisive message. The damage they make is that so many Muslims in Switzerland they will just feel insulted.

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.

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.

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.

K. this year will contain the equivalent of eighty three million plastic bottles instead they suggest making your own from second hand clothes get when used twenty four hours a day on Erin it take talk on Twitter pot by more than twenty seven hundred Jennison unless in more than one hundred and twenty countries and some to kill off this is pulling back name rest I love the idea Sandra two things though either you need tons of existing close to make critical so you need to know how to sew I know I can't do either I literally just like stick close about my not something I get into a tool I have to even if your kids were young was yourself the Halloween I have made the same point myself there are some things you know it's it's yes costumes autos myself and hollering I'm but what what do they suppose you on well will it will leave that to your fat called the station about our no from could I recall is with us in the studio and wants to contribute here in data my son's surprise me earlier this week by a telling that he actually wants to put on a costume this year even though we scan the last couple of years and he wants to he was undecided between Boris Johnson Donald Trump Donald Trump popular man costume a part of the markets at classmates but it has a bit on the side well guess what violence and surprise surprise you take this off Lee so as we look ahead to the weekend in what could happen on Monday the range you were talking about earlier this week from strategist was one forty on deal this past one eleven or no deal what are you predicting within that range I don't wear more optimistic on the pound now we think that obviously there is a binary risk heading into the vote in the parliament tomorrow we think that our central case at the moment a stats of Boris Johnson will manage to sway a sufficient number of independent and peace and labor rebels to support his deal so in the camp of those calling for hi a pound from here AT one forty maybe a bit extreme but on a valuation basis that's not necessarily that extreme PPP purchasing power parity fair value for the font which excludes no deal breaks it clearly is at one forty two for cable I guess on the risk of the parliament rejecting that we have the ban amendment which then means Sir on the outside of the prime minister will have to request an extension opening the way to new election and I think that's what people may not be realizing now is the fact that the Boris Johnson the Johnson government managed to get that deal done we've D. you was a big coup for them heading into an election occurs their platform will likely be we want to deliver breaks it but not only that now we also have a plan how to do it which our partners on the E. U. site agree with if you compare that to what the label will be saying get we wants breaks the deal right we want to vote no deal breaks it I think the voters may well really side with the Tory on that one and in particular voters that may have been thinking of supporting the brexit party because Briggs it will take place but the Tory had the added advantage here of having to plan so longer term that should ultimately bring the pound hi yeah in the immediate aftermath of the vote to own Saturday agents decide that on Monday depending on the outcome of the so you could see a lot of volatility but I think that for the time being my personal view that no deal breaks it is all the table at this stage at the end of five the month and there's a lot of hope and up on the personal a notes as well but the the point is so that I could put a floor under the pound from here from the cable point fifty one twenty five one twenty four east where we gonna stop if indeed there is a on effective the parliament rejects the deal it's it's I mean yes I think you're right the chances of all the new dealers of definitely diminished this is the point to all this is not just the binary the deal noting it's kind of beyond that if there is a do what the actual effect will be going for causes lots of elements to do we have a transition period the way in which trades going to conduct at customs issues all of which are gonna effect upon to some extent I mean can you project well in our view really at the moment brings its race has been a major destruction for the FX markets and I mean in the by the way it is an important topic but usually the FX traders we tend to focus on Monday in things like growth outlook central bank policy outlook rate differentials and all of that and I think once the brakes it full has lifted right so I think investors will be looking back at the UK economy at the B. O. E. and I think couple days that coupled with the expectations of the Tory may have a better chance of winning any new election here you have to also think about the aggressive fiscal stimulus they still want to put into place what I'm talking about is so the fact that because of bricks to deal with these a lot of pent up demand in the U. K. out of me so it will be much more constructive in the U. K. outlook of from that point if you will constructive on the BOP LPS from here which is going to continue to support the pound tried so many Briggs it is important right but I think that once that takes that kind of the back seats then thing so will be changing to launch into that point and be a weekday rams Dave deputy governor saying this morning a smooth breaks it puts hikes back on the table different to comments from some of the MPC members recently do you think then the rate hikes we'll be back on the table if we get a deal and how quickly well ultimately I think bank of England may may be tempted to to hike one spore Edea us was the case before and indeed as I was saying their grounds to expect the economy to rebound to Buck the trend of that that really slowing growth elsewhere research and I use in crafting improvement which could work out really to support the the pound in particular that said let's not forget to in a low yield environment five being that at some point a currency strength could reach such extend that such an extent as going away on the inflation outlook and ultimately will mean that any hikes likely to be a rather moderate I mean disco for the beauty by implication the U. K. when the B. O. U. D. coupling from the rest of the world are still not that great despite brexit well let's bring in some of the rest will be C. B. obviously is a is a key factor this and and and Europe is different you may affected whatever happens with this we had the banking Italy governor not see okay Mr saying the the the European central bank decisions early this month to cut interest rates would made in haste but this clearly doubt was clearly division open division in the soil going to the drugs laws we cannot agree more aids the end of a drug is here next week and that it has been a challenging time for the euro especially since twenty fourteen when he had to the negative rates for the first time in the queue you that followed in January twenty fifteen if you probably remember the euro dollar was trading at one four two and Draghi took the job and we know where you're at all is now quite a loss of value I think from here DC be likely to turn less effective and more importantly less proactive five being dead Draghi and Peter Pratt said they're working as a team what instrumental in building consensus of the governing council that will supporting the aggressive practice policy easing measures that we see and I don't think that'll be the case with Draghi gone by implication anything that the call in trusting a policy approach less practice ECB with I'll take proactive fat from here should drive the rate differential between euro and dole out wide of from here and on this review is the bedrock of our beliefs euro dollar coal over the longer term yeah and he's not pushy dollar cool also driven by your view on China despite the somewhat disappointing data today yeah indeed that we think that overall the data is somewhat dated I have to say indeed the fact is that investors and so we'll continue to focus on the prospect of some abatement further Bateman the trade tensions between the US and China plus the fact that forward looking car data unlike the PMR as we had earlier this month improved came in better than expected overall that should bode well for old countries exposed to China by trade like the eurozone entity that currencies the euro financing thank you so much of doing that county Merrin off the head a few ten FX research and strategy credit agricole Jennings life that on London's student coming up in the next hour of daybreak here and it was a matter of back here and we'll be speaking to a young who's chief economist at Mirabeau net out taking into account all.
