Peter Schweizer: Interior Secretary Husband's Tied to Communist China

"The problem is her husband Andrew Moffat is an investor and a major stakeholder in a company called path AI and here's the thing Mark the commerce secretary's husband's company their biggest investor is a Chinese equity firm called Dan hua capital which happens to be linked to the Chinese government So we thought this is really interesting Is this affecting perhaps in some way the decision she's making and lo and behold you look at the things that she's doing and saying she's done a couple of favors for Huawei the Chinese telecom company that 7 countries including our country says is linked to the Chinese intelligence service She's literally giving away concessions that the Trump administration is secured from China She's giving it away for their benefit and I think that's directly tied to the facts that her family's financial fortunes are linked now to the Chinese government That is unbelievable And of course as long as the Democrats control both houses of Congress they're never going to look into any of this are they That's right That's right It's really troubling that you can not find anybody in the Democratic Party that wants to take a simple honest look at some really basic questions like how Hunter Biden got these deals How treasury sorry commerce secretary raimondo's husband got this money They don't want to look at these deals Corruption which used to be an issue that people tried to look at in a nonpartisan way has become partisan as well And it's to our country's great detriment

"We see more and more of the big names in telecom space. Adding into this ecosystem. And we think this is something that every carrier should definitely look into. And see how it can be part of the innovators and the adapters of this technology. You know, Aaron, I'm just sort of curious as we wrap up for podcast just as a sort of how this all works kind of thing. You know, who sing what to whom? It seems to me that, you know, when I was thinking about this, I wonder if those guys over at clear exercise seeing all this secret stuff. That's an excellent question. I think this is one of the major reasons for companies using blockchain and our solution specifically. We design our solution in privacy and security in mind. And the way that the technology works is that each party installed their own nodes. And we just provide a software, but we have zero access to the information. So all the information is being just steamed by the bilateral process. And nobody else, there is no centralized party, like in the usual marketplace. And this is a big plus because you get all the efficiencies of a marketplace and all your automation or the standardized way to trade without compromising your privacy like you would do if you would give this data to a centralized marketplace. Also, we are a stock two compliant company. We have cybersecurity experts and pass all the tests by the biggest telcos in the world. So our system is super enterprise ready. And super private. Well, Aaron, this has been really interesting. We've only touched the surface. There's so much to ask how the technology works and to get it dive into the nitty Gritty and son. But I thought this was a first good first step. I know there are listeners of blockchain before, but now we're hearing it on a much closer, more personal scale. Sarah, where can we learn more about clerics? I mean, the best thing is to go through our website IO. You can understand there about the different product lines that we have. We also have a YouTube channel where you can see different interviews and different projects that we've done together with the industry bodies like mess and others. And you can always contact us on LinkedIn follow us on all the other social media and get more information about blockchain, our progress and the industry as large. Again, I'm looking forward to doing another podcast like this in the future, learning more, but for now, thanks very much. Thank you very much. It's been a pleasure..

"And buy from this decentralized marketplace eventually getting from three different suppliers or their servers handling the payments and everything around is possible. Traditionally, we used to do kind of just electronically traded assets. So if you look at connectivity and other assets around compute storage, they are all assets that are digitized by nature. And you don't have the issue around getting the actual server or the actual router and the proven it. This is something we thought of. And we have solutions around this. But wouldn't be the classic go to market that we think about. But as you mentioned, I think this is nice for all the listeners to see that how these problems happen in many different B2B marketplaces. And this is why our platform is not just made for a single use case or a single industry, but this is relevant for markets around the edges and energy sustainability and many other different market transportation and so on. So thank you for raising that. And I'll have my team just further into this use case in more details. Aaron, like I said, you know, obviously, if they've been doing this for 30 years, they've been able to figure out something. And yet, I think the challenge here, but in the great opportunity is going to be that, but here's something that may be even better than what you've been doing. Give it a try. Okay, because our listeners to kind of think about that as opposed to G here we have to reinvent everything. It sounds to me like this is very gentle. I can introduce it alongside what I have. I can give it a try if I like it. And then it sounds like once you've seen how it works, you're really going to like it. You're really going to want to offer it more. Absolutely. Absolutely. So I hope some of the listeners will contact us with some ideas we never thought about of how these utilize our technology or just interested in joining one of the existing product lines. You know, as we wrap up our prime counts today, what are you working on? What's the big trend for you right now? So what we are seeing our data services product are currently getting a lot of traction. I mean, we provide a market based solution for the ICT market and we allow implementation of automated inventory harmonization, partnership settlement solution and this is something that we see this how all the time they're being accelerated and as we spoke about improved re rates for RFPs retention, better customer and user experience. And this helps supporting enterprises need by having this integrated..

So we are still in the life cycle of this type of technology that is actually something that companies are proud of and not trying to put it under a wide labor. And it's not to their kind of external customers on the enterprise and stuff like that. This is at a moment just handling the commerce within the whole community. Ken, your service be offered alongside an existing service, can there be a choice? In other words, it's kind of company offer two types of billing. Oh, of course. I mean, currently we have a limited amount of companies that support the solution. And when they walk with other extreme work in the old way that they use the work. So there is no problem walking with this side by side. And we are trying to, of course, get this as wide use as possible. So this will become kind of a standard among companies trading specific assets. Let me ask looking at this a little bit different way. This is actually represent an opportunity, is there an opportunity here to go out there and basically resell your service? Yes. I mean, we do have some agreements on that in place. And yeah, we'll be happy to discuss this with other resellers that think that they understand the problem that we are trying to tackle the solution and they think that they do have their right connections with customers that are relevant. Absolutely. This is the opportunity. And we actually love that because in some geographies and some industries, we have much less direct connection. So it's an excellent idea. You know, Aaron, one of the markets that we report on that's kind of went very sleepy over the years and now all of a sudden is back to being a very important thing, is the used equipment market. It came back to life for several reasons. First, you know, it's become all of a sudden a place to reliably get equipment and secondly, many of the companies in it are getting involved in the iPad movement where you which means that the equipment it's very safe place to dispose of equipment properly and environmentally correctly. So, but that market has been forever. It's a very old market. This has always been a problem of creating trust between parties of creating secure and sure deals. And these guys have a certain vulnerability when they sell the equipment and they just let it go and to send someone in. They haven't been paid. They are actually not out of service throughout a piece of equipment that they paid for. They're out a big expense of asset in some cases. So can this be something that they could use? Super interesting. I never thought about this market. You know, one of the things that is super exciting in our journey is clear access that as we see a lot of different B2B markets. We get to learn about the different nuances that every market has. And we've seen our technology fit to many different areas and verticals and sectors. Regarding this sector, I think it has some characteristics that sounds very relevant. Handling the payments and creating an esco like escrow like solution is something that can definitely utilize our technology or the ability to list all the different products and to allow customers to go.

"With your financial systems. So we have customers that are integrating with their SAP system, other integrating with different ERP systems. So this is we are not trying to replace the general ledger of the company. Whether we are working on the area a little between the companies, the commerce that happens between the companies, each company still writes to their own general nature as a result of what's happening. But what you get is singular social truth for both your contract and the calculations. So the billing station that comes out of our system are identical for both sides and because of that, they are saving all the discrepancies and disputes that are happening on a normal basis. So let's dive a little bit further into uni we were talking about this improved cash flow that we're going to speed up the time to cash and so on, but why is that? In other words, what's occurring at the customer level that wants to make him or naval him to pay me faster or better. So take take, for example, the experience that you have today with cloud, as you mentioned. You usually have a credit card there and you get viewed every building cycle that you have on the cloud and everything that you use. If you've been having a standard B2B relationship, you get a quote, you will answer for this, then you get an invoice. You might state immediately or you might check some things. Maybe you dispute the invoice, the more disputes that you have, the later you're going to pay. So on an average, when you look on a carrier business, you see that he gets a lot of his payments delayed because of this issues of the manual system that you currently have by having the automated system that will find that. This happens in most of the time automatically this views are being resolved by the system. Is it possible the way lightly, a lot of people in our industry sort of are very proud of that they have a billing system, maybe not their own, but they're actually white labeling from someone else or they're in fact offering a white label service. Is this something you can white label? Is this something that carries your brand? The way it's currently working is that to interact with another party that works with artists that you need to have our system in stores. So there is no much sense around why labeling at this space. It might be in future versions where we're.

"In today's reality sometimes, you wait for 6 months or 8 months until you can collect the money in certain areas. And by having automation of that, you can do this, not even monthly, but several times a month. So times to money becomes the faster and time to value for the customer becomes faster. And then if you look on top of that, when you see all the new on demand type of business models, if it's connectivity on demand, then you use cases around 5G that's going to come with network slicing. Is it about edge compute that needs to be on demand? All these kinds of use cases, you put them in the existing infrastructure that is so manual and slow today. And it won't work. Current ecosystem, the current operating system of the industry can not serve these type of things. And we have providing new ways of companies to be able to be compatible as future proof into these type of use cases while achieving efficiency for their current product immediately. Now, what about the customer experience? You've been just talking a little bit about gee, I get paid more. It's better secure. I get these. What about the customer experience? Is that improved or changed? Absolutely absolutely great. Great point. Yeah. I mean, the customer experience using a kind of one of our customers is extremely improved because you can get prices faster. You can do things on demand. He knows that everything that he needs to pay is already been validated. So the customer experience extremely improved and he gets an experience that is similar to the cloud experience in the sense that he can hold their own line. He can get a business in a way that he understands. And not the same way as the traditional B2B ordering, which is a lot of emails and waiting time and so on. So absolutely customer experience is going to be improved and as customers have been getting used to cloud is kind of a standard for experience. Once there will be more and more companies that are supporting this type of experiences, they will gain a little probability more customers and we'll see more volume coming at their size, which is the revenue increased cost, which is might be the most important one for some of the participants. Now, as an administrative or internal issue, does what you do work with existing accounting systems. So, you know, we already have a way to, that we manage ourselves and manage our cash flow payroll, all that stuff and so on. Does it interact with these existing systems or do I have to start over again? No, of course, of course it is interact. So the way that our system is built is that it enables integration.

"We specialize in markets where there are no big sensual marketplaces for a reason, telecom markets, telecom is one of the markets that behaves like that. You don't have a centralized marketplace for connectivity or for roaming. And this is due to the structure of the telecom space. And provide a solution. It's a platform that gets in stores on the cloud or on premise for different customers to be part of a network to allow them to do automatic actions for automating their trades. This is done by taking the commercial agreements, translating them into smart contract, which are construct of losses. And by then allowing automatic reconciliation calculation and settlements between the colonies. Now, Aaron, you said you solve a problem, that's what you came to do as a company, right? What probably you solving? So we are solving a problem that B2B trade, even today is very manual. So if you look at the standard process of a company, asking a carrier for a quote, to take a while until they bring the quote, especially if they need to get quote from other carriers and the supply chain to fulfill it. Once all is placed through time for the order to take place that there are some provisioning issues, but also the commercial issues that happen. And even when an invoice is being issued, this invoice takes time to get reviewed sometimes amounts are not meshing. And then there are excels and CSV files going back and forth, some phone conversations, teams conversations or whatever to try and resolve this issue. So there are many areas within a BCB transaction that are today manual and lengthy. And we are taking the complexity out of that by creating automation. Why is there an advantage to this, it sounds like to me this is very reminiscent when cloud was being introduced it wasn't just here's a new technology that a kind of different mentality, a different way to engage the customer. And I think you're asking us to do that again. So where's the advantage? So there are several levels of advantages. The first advantage is around efficiency. So if you want to be able to answer an RFP from customer and you want to do it much faster than you do it today, you need a way to automate your quoting process. If you have to process invoices or.

Airline CEOs Warn of 'Catastrophic' 5G Disruption

"The U.S. is warning airlines of chaos. As telecoms roll out 5G I do not pretend to understand this story. I do believe, however, and there's a second story from Reuters that the FAA has cleared 45% of the commercial plane fleet after 5G deployed. Well, that would mean 55% were in some sort of danger or risk. I just don't believe that. I don't believe it's a real risk. If it was a real risk, I think you would find far more shouting than there is.

"Helpful as you've made this most recent transition? Good judgment, okay? I like to believe that exercise, good judgment throughout my career. Not looking over your shoulder for the next thing you want to do, something wrong with being ambitious and having various roles. I've had incredible roles and responsibilities throughout my career, but always stay focused on the job that you're in when you're in it, right? And being a great leader in that job when you're in it so that people can say, no matter what that you have the right commitment to the organization to the leaders that you work with the corporation that you work for. So that kind of hope is on being successful, being where you are and being successful where you are. Integrity, absolutely. I mean, it may seem trite, but we all know there are people who unfortunately think that succeeding especially in our competitive place like Washington D.C. means that they can sort of sell short their integrity from time to time sort of a means to an end. I have found throughout my career that's incredibly important. And then finally, this transcends the public and private sector rolls it up ahead and leading. Then it's helping to identify young people, especially young people of color and women to make sure that they get the mentorship and the opportunities succeed that are important to their long-term advancement. So on law firm that can mean making sure that young lawyers have the opportunity to service clients as early in their careers since they possibly can to help generate business to be showcased before the kind of talent that they have. And also to help them navigate especially in a place like Washington, D.C., the public private sector balances. Does it make sense for me to leave the private sector and to go into public sector and when or vice versa? How long should you stay? So being a mentor is always been afforded to me to help people navigate those kinds of considerations as well to you. Or broader as we bring this conversation to close. I wanted that's one final question from a leadership perspective. What are some of the most important ways you are building on the lesson of the past year, which included a global pandemic, social justice movements and shifting work environments. But tell you it's quite an almost two years really when you think back to this global pandemic, for example, the impact of it all and how it's disrupted our lives and whether it's been in my own individual and family life, but also as a leader, realize in that there are unforeseen events really unforeseen events that can disrupt what we have taken for granted as normal. Whether it's visuals, whether you're family, whether leadership, whether in our communities, whether or not our workplaces, and how quickly that we adapt to incredibly changing unforeseen circumstances. So we've all learned the importance of being able to do Zoom call 13s call. So whatever browsing to do those effectively, I'd say probably at times more efficiently than we would sit down and get together because the 30 minute meeting has become quite as stable of the way people communicate. And it's actually serve people well. But at the same time, we also missed interaction with other people. And as leader being able to try to figure out, how can we get back to that as quickly as possible. Also realize you know that people have no fears when it comes to confronting banks that are so unforeseen as a global pandemic. And what does that need in terms of how willing they are to come back to workplaces for instance? Or to be able to put the fears aside and make sure that they are well protected physically financially and otherwise. So I think that's one thing that certainly over the past almost two years. As the leaders and understanding how disruptive things can be and how we need it quickly adapt and be able to help other people feel more comfortable that things are going to be okay if we certainly pay attention to things like science, for example. That's one thing. Social justice movement of past several years. It's been such a reminder that we can't push aside racial ethnic gender differences, other flashpoints that's still very much exists in the society in this world. They don't just go away. Don't just go away on their own. We have to continue to work at those issues. Again, whether it's in the workplace, whether it's then in our communities, our neighborhoods and interaction with our neighbors and to be more fair and more tolerant takes work. And that we don't do the work that situations will come back again and we'll have to deal with them. And maybe you have to deal with them and more and more tense and difficult situations. So we have to be in constant motion and addressing the things that are real challenges in the society that can often divide us, but should really be kind of that the core of our strength as a country as a society and also even in our corporations and in government.

"telecoms" Discussed on The Heidrick & Struggles Leadership Podcast

"Three decades experience as a lawyer, policy adviser and strategist, and is served under two U.S. presidents as deputy assistant to the president for legislative affairs in the Clinton administration and his assistant to the president and cabinet secretary for the bomb administration. Thank you so much for joining us today. Our first question is, what led you to Comcast in this role? Well, thank you very much, Julia. It's great to be here with you for this podcast and I appreciate you noting my multiple roles at Comcast. They do intersect. I think with respect to overseeing the public policy group, I'm excited to be able to do that. I've had a Broadway through some public policy matters throughout my career, even going back to when I first started a capital know that legislation that drafted a variety of different measures in lots of different public policy hearings that has continued throughout my career. And so while I have taken the very strong interest to have had both in-house and physicians and technology and telecommunications, I've done a variety of public policy issues as well. But the opportunity to come to Comcast at this point in my career to oversee the broad public policy concerns of the company, whether it be from tax policy to broadband policy to closing the digital divide to many other things that compilation of things is what brought me to be excited about position at Comcast to eat all the policy group. That's one hat. The other hat is overseeing the digital equity work going back to what I worked for president Clinton in the late 90s and into 2000 of the digital divide being able to address that by providing digital equity is something that I've been concerned about and a country has been concerned about. Lawmakers on both sides have been concerned about, especially over the last several years. And so the opportunity to come in, the cop casts that help oversee those efforts as well relates to concerns about that from a moral perspective about being providing opportunities to folks. And also enhancing their educational opportunities. But also from an economic perspective. We are increasingly digitized economy across the world. And so for the U.S. to compete effectively, we need to make sure that all of our citizens really have the opportunity to be able to have the resources to compete and to succeed in a increasingly digital world. So Comcast is really over the last ten years and then looking forward, made it a great deal of resources to efforts to close the digital divide. So I was so excited about being able to do that as well. And the two roles that are sex. That's not like one day I'm over here going to set up things for policy and then the next day I'm going to digital equity, the two never really get conjoined. They actually very, very important in the way they intersect. If we could just maybe double click on that piece a little bit, can you share a little bit more about Comcast commitment to digital equity and how you define that on what's planned for the future to continue speed? Yeah, so let me start with my view of what digital equity is all about. And it's really Julian is simple. These are equity is making sure that all people have access to the digital resources, necessary to help them connect to the country to the world so that they can succeed and ever increase sake digital world where you need digital access and digital skills in order to be successful. So that's what I would broadly defy this digital equity. It's also important that people have the awareness to know what kind of resources are there. Not enough for the resources to be there. People aren't aware that those resources are available to them that they're affordable to them. So that's a big part of digital equity as well. Com gas Mitt and really goes back over the last decade, for example, in the tremendous financial resources and community partnerships with schools and individuals around the Internet essentials program, which has been designed to make sure that millions of people have access to broadband to the Internet. And so Comcast says, oh, that decade expanded on the Internet, essentially work to do a number of other things as well. So for example, going to pass decade, Comcast is providing over a 150,000 free or affordable subsidized computers to people across the country. Companies also establish a Lyft song program and made a commitment that by the end of this year, it would establish thousand live songs and communities across the country. What it lives on this is essentially it's a maybe a community center or a rec center, someplace where people can go and have access to the Internet. We know that there are many, many, many communities, many households, where people don't have access to the Internet, but they could go to a community center and be able to have that access as well. And then finally, Comcast, a year ago established something called the rise program, which is really focused on trying to make sure that small and minority owned businesses and women owned businesses had the opportunity to be able to connect in a digital world to make their businesses more successful and more connected. So those are examples what Comcast has done over past years and celebrating this past decade of enormous commitment and resources. And now as we look to the future, we've actually started a new initiative called project up, which I could describe as well, but really speaks to connecting even 50 million more people to broadband to the Internet at a number of other initiatives as well. That's great roger. Thank you. I mean, maybe building a little bit on that. I wanted to turn to a certainly related area. I know it's very important to you and personal to you frankly. Diversity and inclusion. While serving in the Obama administration, you were also appointed as chairman of The White House's, my brother's keeper task force, which is an interagency initiative designed to identify and address the disparities that hamper the success of boys and young men of color and to improve the lives of all use. Could you maybe share a little bit how you are driving diversity and inclusion, perhaps beyond just technology in your public policy and digital equity role? Yes, so I was very fortunate. As you mentioned, I had several hats in The White House as well and cabinet secretary was one and to be cheered but my brothers keep task force was another and I was proud to serve in that role course as well. It was really driven by president Obama's commitment in the wake of the Trayvon Martin tragedy and the aftermath of that and other murders of young African American men as well. And just looking at the overall disparities in circumstances that have anti to impede the success, especially a voice and young men of color, but women and young girls color as well. So we focus throughout the last three years of the Obama administration on that work. And with real hard data and evidence based approaches. And so that work continues. I continue to be the volunteer chair of my brother's keeper alliance, which is now part of the Obama foundation. And we continue to focus on addressing and supporting efforts around the country that speak to trying to clothe disparities. And disparities, neuritis mentioned, certainly in the context of technology and divide gaps, but also those that speak to issues around interactions with police, for example. And therefore addressing some of the policing, we imagining efforts that are going on across the country or speaking to suspension and expulsion rates in schools across the country and trying to come up with ways to reduce violence and communities across the country. And those are all diversity and inclusion related issues as well. Really about how to try to do everything we can possibly to make sure that people in this country no matter where they grew up, the color of their skin, their gender, having the same opportunities as a better quest, this country has been on for so long. Of course, and, you know, it takes no work of government, but also the private sector. And so Comcast like many other corporations have engaged in supporting those kinds of efforts as well. Thanks for a break. I imagine there's a bit of a transition from government to corporate work environments and cultures. And you've done that before having worked in top flight law firms. But which leadership skills and experiences have been most.

Gordon Chang Describes 'The Great US-China Tech War'

"Let's continue one on one with Gordon gi Chang. Let's jump straight in. We just mentioned it. Explain why you use this phrase for your latest publication. You can find Gordon's work at Gordon Chang dot com. What is this great tech war between America and China and how does this quote unquote company Huawei fit into it? China wants to dominate all the world's technologies. And we saw a hint of this in their maiden 2025 initiative, which they took ten critical sectors and said that they wanted to be self sufficient and they wanted to have the world's best technology in them. They added an 11 sector which was 5G, the 5th generation of wireless communication. That's the Internet of Things. That's where you have everything connected to the Internet, including your front door, your car, your pacemaker, you know, just everything. And Huawei was their national champion. It was the world's number one maker of telecom networking gear. And until the Trump administration got a hold of it. It was looking like it was going to wire the entire world. Why this is important is because if you can wire the world, you can steal the world's data and you steal the world's data, you put it into artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence systems, even if their technology isn't as good as ours, and there's a debate about that. But even if it isn't, AI systems run on data in China can put all the data in the world into it and we're a democracy. So we have pretty strict restrictions on what we can feed into our AI systems. Then that means with better AI, China will have more efficient manufacturing. It will have better nuclear weapons, you name it. So Huawei is at the center of that and the Trump administration put Huawei on the commerce department's entity

Should You Outsource Customer Support?

"Support and customer. Service is really the backbone of your company. It's how your customers will interact with your business whether they're asking for some support on how to use your product or service a billion corey or they're looking to upgrade. They're gonna most likely contact somebody on your support team to get that done so in a lot of ways. They're the gatekeepers. They're the front line soldiers of your team. Many people will go to a ppo company in just hire that service. they'll say. hey. I need customer support. I x amount of emails every day. Can you get somebody to take care of my support email or support chat or whatever it is or phone calls and based on your volume this company will like hey problem and they have a team of customer support agents that will take care of your support and your customers now. How does this work well. Most of these companies won't have a dedicated person. You probably can request but a lot of times the agents working on your business and with your customers will also help other businesses with their customers and from the customer's point of view. They're pretty much just talking to somebody. That represents your business. They don't know that. You're outsourcing it now very large companies do this like telecom companies like. At and t and verizon large companies like apple and microsoft and the reason why they do this is that they just can't hire that fast they can't find the talent because they need so many people when the iphone launches they literally thousands of queries a minute thousands of questions in their support bank in their support a portal so they really need as many people. They can't hire so many people at one shot so they go to a company like this. Now if you're a small company is there any advantage to this well a lot of times. It's cost effective especially on volumes of severe example. They say we will take care of all your customer support and they give you a flat fee now. of course you're still gonna need provide some training materials and Information about your product or service in the rules For your product and refunds. And all that kind of stuff. So that support agent knows how to answer those questions but at the end of the day they work for the company that you are paying not you directly

Unpacking Inequities in Unemployment and Economic Recovery

"I am marcellus co bari. A senior fellow in the global economy and development program here with a sustainable development spotlight as part of the greater recovery from cove nineteen. The biden administration has an opportunity to tackle three into related challenges facing the american economy. The first one is unemployment. Even as unemployment rates have gradually fallen. Since last april the labor force was a whole has shrunk. We still have ten million fewer workers employed today than before the pandemic and because covid nineteen proportionately disrupted sectors like cleaning hospitality and food services high contact sector that also typically pay low wages. The workers most affected are more likely to be black hispanic female anion second even before the pandemic made things worse the. Us labor market was incredibly precarious. Almost half of the american workforce some fifty. Three million people were working in low wage jobs. Earning on average eighteen thousand dollars a year. These workers also see very little upward mobility looking at the transition of some twenty million workers in the lowest paid jobs. We found the low wage workers sticky for every two years or worker remains in lower work their chances of escaping get cut in half and third. The us just doesn't invest enough in infrastructure. We spent just over. Two percent of gdp on infrastructure while european country spend five percent on average in china around eight percent this lack of investment hamper productivity in long-term growth by looking at new infrastructure proposals to a workforce lands. The administration has the opportunity to address the precarious low wage labor market and speed up reemployment while providing much needed infrastructure like broadband. Roads and bridges. Should be the primary goal. We think that the jobs that go into it can make all the difference to workers hit hardest in this crisis in a new policy. Brief we provide an example. What this analysis might look like we use data from hundreds of thousands of real occupational transitions in the last twenty years to answer some questions. That may help policymakers prioritize and adapt projects to maximize their workforce in impact. I absorption how many what kind of workers will new projects employees each will require a unique occupational mix and occupations employed different kinds of workers take broadband an eighty billion dollar investment. The amount proposed in clyburn. Bill would enjoy about two hundred thousand workers over the course of a year in occupations like telecom line installers electronics engineers. Most of them eighty five percent can be sourced from currently unemployed and underemployed people from the telecom construction industries. These workers tend to be older wider in mail. So policymakers might consider a diversity inclusion strategy when hiring for infrastructure projects second. How good will be the recovery from the two thousand and eight recession left too. Many workers behind the quality of jobs created and who has access to them matters if we want to make sure the recovery for the economy also means recovery workers given the urgency to accelerate. Reemployment policymakers may favor investments that create jobs with low natural barriers to entry and that provide living wage basic labor protections instability here infrastructure. Jobs to well. They generally pay more than the national medium offer opportunities for upward mobility and are accessible to workers without a college degree. Third what specific reskilling may be required if we assume that the two hundred thousand jobs in broadband are created in year. One we find there are not currently enough unemployed and underemployed workers to fill about fifteen percent of the jobs created. The potential shortages aren't highly technical jobs specialized telecom industry. These jobs pay well and many workers would benefit from the opportunity to learn the skills needed to fill up. This type of analysis can help maximize the long term impact of these investments on the workforce and informed local reskilling efforts. They can help follows. He makers prioritize projects that can absorb locally displaced workers plugging abandoned oils for instance not only can reduce harmful methane emissions but maybe helpful to workers in places like pennsylvania transitioning from fossil fuels. There are precedents for programs like this. During the great depression federally funded infrastructure investments amounted to six point seven percent of gdp at speak it provided paid work for up to forty percent of unemployed americans equivalent to about four million jobs today. So what we're thinking about the great new bridges and broadband will end up with. We also need to be considering the people who build them and how. This is a massive opportunity to really break ground on both our economic recovery and to reconcile with labor markets card by equity and lack of opportunity.

Making money is not is never a purpose but you know as you have to make money in order to have a a living attitude to have a know a a business that matters so that's insured by answer mart. Wash s a. What would you add to that. And also you tell me little big evolve. Marketing guys us. Alzheimer's plus nine democracy were the doesn't need another branding companies buck. The border does need marketing guys. Because you guys a unique unique and adamovich so tell me little bit about your role. And what's unique niche marketing guides in the states. I was always interested in technology Got a marketing backgrounds but always did something with technology. All since nineteen ninety-five something like that and When i met elias We were talking about a marketing technology. And he actually said well. How do you to join us. And and pick that marketing technology part. What i in in two thousand ten. I had the choice. Doing something with that. Was something completely new in those days or go with another technology part and that was clouds. I chose for cloud and abuts in two thousand seventeen Indeed fi that mutual contact. I had a chat with the end and we came up this marketing technology part and And he said we'll how would you like to join us and and bring that to the next level. That sounds great. why don't they. I didn't was very interested in a everage marketing company but with allies at so. Of course this is interesting because now the got this intersection between marketing technology and and that can make really a difference and and stand out and it is indeed the whole marketing technology. Part that sets up parts set us apart from from the rest There are a zillion marketing agencies. All full service or whatever you wanna call them. There are just a few mark tech agencies. And i think that the marketing guys are really especially in the netherlands. We're we're we're expanding to western europe and so as that we won't be really on the four four end of everything. What's with marketing technology. That's the reason why we also set up the mark and technology both costs and that's great five. This bulk causing. You should know that also charging you meet a lot of interesting people but you see and hear all these passions of of how you can use technology to help people to help companies and i think that that's something that allies and i share is really the urge to help companies really to succeed that. That's also what we then. We help companies succeeds in by using the right technology. And there are zillion tools. I think that There are about seven thousand eight thousand. I'm not sure about that elias. What the counting does this moment. Slowly thousand nine thousand at the moment and sifting through the and really getting finding the gems and and and using them to help your customers really. That's one of the great things marketing technology. You're using text off to make your marketing more personal more geared to people and it's that combination and it's making it. Yeah well that's the paradox. Using technology to become more human. And that's what really and therefore the marketing guys is really because otherwise we could have been denmark tech agency or something like that. No where the guys you know where people were human. Nothing relate to us.

Tim Wu hired by Biden administration to take on Big Tech

"I've said before that. Tim wu has been one of the most influential people in terms of shaping how i think about tech both its history and its economics and its culture but beyond that he's also been known for years. Now as being a big proponent of various antitrust ideas relating to the tech industry he literally coined the term net neutrality regulation antitrust. All that stuff has been on his plate for years and thus eyebrows are being raised. No doubt in the highest levels of the tech oligarchy. Today by the news. That tim wu is joining the national economic council as a special assistant to president biden for tech and competition policy quoting the new york. Times the appointment of mr wu forty eight who is widely supported by progressive democrats and anti monopoly groups suggests that the administration plans to take on the size and influence of companies like amazon apple facebook and google including working with congress on legislation to strengthen antitrust laws during his campaign. Mr biden said he would be open to breaking up tech companies. Mr wu has warned about the consequences of too much power in the hands of a few companies said. The nation's economy resembled the gilded age of the late eighteen. Hundreds extreme concentration yields gross inequality and material suffering feeding the appetite for nationalistic extremists leadership. Mr wu wrote in his two thousand eighteen book. The curse of bigness antitrust in the new gilded age most visible in our daily lives is the power of the tech platforms especially google facebook and amazon. He added his role with a focus on competition. Policy will be a new one in the national economic council. Mr wu will also focus on competition in labor policy. Such as non compete clauses enforced by companies and concentration in power in agriculture and the drug industry. The job does not require senate approval. Mr wu is best known for advocacy against powerful telecom companies and for coining the term net neutrality. the regulatory philosophy that consumers should get equal access to all content on the internet more recently. He has turned his attention to the gatekeepers like facebook. Google amazon that dominates speech search and retail online and quote as many have said on twitter. This morning i think we just got our biggest indication yet about how the new administration might be thinking about tech and antitrust.

"Well I I think so and I think. It's in addition to the pure commercial, but you can t I think he's still something. Really different to go and speak to customers about I mean. I mean, I've been there but you I get rung up by. Telecoms companies the whole time trying to sell me the same thing game again and again, and again, the same ad on. This is something genuinely completely different, which most Tokyo's will have never spoken to that customer base about. So and a great reason to get in touch something different. It's a great margin opportunity with recurring revenues, which music on hold there's never been before and at the end of the day Great. Recordings on the telephone system will also. The customers happier about that phone system because it sounds better. So I think it's a it's a win win win win. You know we've been looking at this from the point of view of the company utilizing it, and also the channels introducing it to the companies and so on. Let's talk for just a moment about the the people actually call in. And experienced, the system had actually happened in what's the result? As I can give you some some steps that we go. We did a project with one of the top five global. Pizza. Chains. and. This was an incredibly exciting. Opportunity? Essentially. what they wanted to do was to give talk to messages to call when they called into that other call pizza restaurant to order takeaway pizzas and environments abandonment is really really important. You can imagine that if it takes. A minute to on the telephone in that environment the coughing song. Yeah it's it's going to take the ages. They actually get my pizza if it takes them this long ones the phone. So there's a very, very short average time to abandon right and yet there's some fantastic up. So the tunes is. Designed to a proof of concept scenario. Webuye. We played tugs at messages depending on who the coolest. Pretty Fun. But Depending on how long they have been calling and we got some incredible is outside of that little just in terms of the average time to abandon right it was twenty nine seconds was the average time to abandon. In the Control Group of this project. When we So what we? Did is we played a message about twenty seconds in saying, Hey, we realized that you've been waiting really long time. So we're going to add free nobles, your older orders connected, and that increase the average time to abandon from twenty nine seconds to fifty two seconds which resulted in seven percent more who's being onset. So really really compelling. Business but from the coolest point of view, they go free tables. So that will say happy as Larry. So that was one. Benefit the other side of it was playing talked up. So masters. So if the Pizza Organization knew that this particular quarter was Habich elite, a medium pizza they might have said, Hey, not by launch pizza Friday one pound extra..

"This is the green and I'm the publisher of Telecom reseller. And today I'm with Anthony Buxton is the CEO prompt. Waste Anthony Thank you for joining me today my pleasure. WELL WE'RE GONNA be talking on this podcast today about something. We often don't get a chance to, and that is a really interesting opportunity for the channel to sell music on hold really necessary thing perhaps now, more than ever especially as the contact center emerges as maybe the main point of contact customers have with many commercial operations of the first density of what is prompt us well from a company that specializes in providing audio for telephone system. It's always intrigued me that when telephone systems are sold by telecoms resellers into into that customers. Only still ways they don't provide the professional recordings all the music on hold to turn those telephone systems from standard to stand out, and so what prompted the company that gives telecomms resellers the to to to make that transition and to provide great audio so that telephone systems Great. So. This is something new I think that really what caught our attention and what? If, you will prompted this Tomcat podcast was. I think we often think of music on hold in sort of to sort of general stations that you know. First of all, it's kind of boring and not that good, and secondly it's not not really a big deal for the channel and I think your message messages that that can be different. Yasser. We've been in in the music on business ninety four, but also four years we have completely re-engineered the whole market and just thought in the new. What's this going to look like and we've come up with a new proposition which we call hosted on hold which Just revolutionizes everything it's different technically in the fifties a streaming service, it's different commercially in. Instead of end customers paying pounds per recording actually pay an ongoing revenue stream to have as many recordings as they want, and it's different in terms of the way it is so because it has been designed from the ground up to be sold through the telecoms channel. and there's somebody really ready completely different, which is very exciting. Let's take. These are differences one by one, and maybe start with the product because it sounds like. different way of delivering. But let's start there. Why is delivering it by streaming such a big deal. Okay so.

"Telecoms and media Dave mccombs joins us now from our studio in Tokyo. Dave, what is your understanding of where exactly the legal illegal proceedings of left? Mr go. Well, left moments away apparently from exiting this jail in Tokyo as you can see behind me. It's a bit of a gloomy day here, weather wise, but it has to be a happy one for Carlos going, as you know, he'll be stepping outside for the first time since he landed on his private aircraft on November nineteenth and was whisked away from there. So he will be exiting. And then from there his life will change dramatically. It's not like he's stepping back into his normal life prior arrest, which was basically the sort of jet-setting ten days five countries kind of world wind of activity. He's gonna have to get busy very quickly, though, fighting this case and gathering evidence on his own behalf of speaking with witnesses and trying to build this case that as he has said as he has claimed that these allegations are just not true. Why was the bail granted this time? Right. I mean, the prosecution they put up a huge fight. And they were trying to make the case that there's a there's a flight risk. Why did the court budge this time run? Well, the most likely there were several factors. One of them was of course, that they did grant some concessions in terms of the said he can have cameras at his home to watch his every move. He also accepted the fact that he would not accept meetings with other people from the outside. And the other thing is that they were bringing increasing international pressure to bear his new legal team was more aggressive. They came up with the idea to send a letter to the UN protesting this on human rights grounds. Are they had protested the human rights before? But this letter to the young was the first time to approach that body which carries very big wait here in Japan that could've added to the pressure. I think the last thing that Tokyo prosecutors want is for this to become an international case. And they could perhaps they could see the tide starting to turn on that and sympathy starting to build plus he'd been. Been there now for one hundred plus days, it's kind of hard for them to argue that they would expect a confession after he had held out that long so all those factors add up to contributing to him finally having his bail approved and as as we're hearing now minutes away from stepping out of that jail. Yeah. A few defining moments that we are looking and experiencing looking at then experiencing Bloomberg conglomerates date macoutes. Thank you very much for joining us for some perspective. Live from Tokyo. We'll keep a close eye on the front door there.

"But it does telecoms equipment just switches and relays it is the backbone of mobile telecommunications around the world or it was until recently. But there's been a lot of bad headlines. Yeah. It has. And so it's alleged. I'm gonna use that word here quite heavily because Hawaii strongly denies these claims. And actually there's been a lack of real evidence published on the people that are doing the alleging, but it's alleged that the company could create back doors in its technology, which is used in network systems. All around the world to actually spy on data being transferred across networks, so the US previously in the last few months said that China China's national intelligence law that was passed in twenty seventeen is problematic because it says the companies with Johnny's origin support cooperate incurred liberates. We have the national intelligence networks. So the sort of. I guess the word to visit risk the risk. Isn't it yet people that the company could be spying on basically every country in the world on behalf of the Chinese government all the Chinese government good access to data this impasse through Hawaii's acquitted? So what have we done to combat this? What you what people in the world doing referring out phones and equipment, so yes in some ways. So most of this is focused on the infrastructure network equipment, not the actual mobile phones are being sold because I think Hawaii's actually at one of the biggest pretty much up there with apple in psalms. Now has a fifteen percent roughly market share of all mobile phones in the world. But it's more concerned around this network infrastructure equipment that we don't see as much so the US and this is of clouded in the US ongoing sort of diplomatic tensions with his trade disagreements with China, but it will plays into the bigger picture. So the US has had one of Weiwei's the CTO who is the daughter of the founder. She's been arrested in Canada on behalf of the US government relating to multiple charges. And as part of that, the US has also signed bills saying that government agencies shouldn't be using the tech of y Australia and New Zealand with similar sort of national. Securities concerns have also blocked local firms and companies from using that technology in upcoming five G networks developing and some US officials have gone further than that Republican Senator Tom cotton said that always affectively intelligence gathering on the Chinese communist party whose founder was an engineer for the People's Liberation Army. So what seems to have happened is didn't happen overnight. This has been bubbling along for years. But there is now such momentum behind his idea that way is a major security threat to western countries. The everyone wants to distance themselves from it definitely and seemingly in this last week or so there's been a couple more arrests from well on the. Knees I'd which is Parvez or diplomatic tensions three journals reported. But the US department of Justice is involved von stages of a criminal inquiry that could see indictments of while staff US politicians of introduced a Bill to ban the export of American parts and components to Chinese telecoms companies in the bigger picture as well. UK previously just before Christmas said the BT is removing always from its four g networks and previous networks, and what used parts in the upcoming gene networks UK's intelligence services have said the house some decisions ahead around the technology. That's being used from wa. And basically there is this snowboarding momentum against the company. Around the world, and it's causing big political tensions say what does why say about all this it annoys everything? Basically, it says that on any back doors, and the people really don't have anything to worry about..
