Having made it through the previous month and particularly when you're in a month when lockdown away and and it's also the first day of the new quarter so true and we love that here at fearing grade.

As i mentioned federal treasurer josh freudenberg yesterday said australia ended last financial year. About eighty billion dollars better off than forecast primarily because of the big surge in jobs in the first six months of twenty twenty one. That's good news. Yes it definitely. Is the budget deficit climbing at one. Hundred thirty four billion dollars last financial year. And that's after the federal government spent about three hundred and eleven billion dollars in economic in health support. In short. the economy in twenty twenty one was stronger than the government expected. It pied out listen welfare and received much more in tax receipts. It really matters because it means the starting point for this financially is much stronger. So what about this financial year. Now we're going to just a few months into it will. Yes the first quarter finished yesterday. And that was a quarter in which victoria and new south. Wales were in lockdown but things are looking at k. Everyone reserve bank.

It has been a big week for economists. I am definitely not one of those arm. Relying on you to take me through some of these figures that have come out through the way it has been a big wake retail trade figures earlier in the week where affected by the lockdowns but they weren't a disaster like they could have been johnson economics. Put an out at too tight. They saying that. I think there's about two hundred billion dollars available to consume as when they can start spending again. Now that's all the pie down debt or build up savings and remember the end of the lockdowns. At least in new south wales have been brought forward. That's good news. Ibs joe vacancy figures. Yesterday came out now. They down ten percent in the three months to august. That's all during lockdown that they're still fifty percent or almost fifty percent above the start the pandemic also the ibs yesterday said the number of dwellings approved rose by nearly seven percent last month that came after four consecutive months of decline. Low interest rates increased hassled savings and confidence in the housing market. A convincing people to build and renovate in my states..

"This is when they get caught. This is the small fraction of the time when they get caught paying the largest settlement in the history of the department of justice and they're still able even convicted of crimes repeatedly criminal offenses over and over and over again and they're just able to keep doing business as usual because even that settlement that's graphs to them. Guess make it for the vaccine campaign with the co vaccine guests to make thirty four billion dollars. This is all about our health though. Thirty four billion dollars. It doesn't matter. The vaccines are effective or not pfizer. Making thirty four billion dollars off of this gold rush but the perspective could be. And i'm a fan like if you've got a good product s make your mind do your thing but this is promoted that the is ninety five percents effective in his not the full story. Because that's true. That's the thing about this manipulation. In framing it is true it is a ninety five percent relative risk reduction but the absolute risk reduction you as an individual as crazy as i know. This sounds crazy. I would not believe it. Just too far fetched because literally the opposite into the spectrum. The truth is the absolute risk reduction is less than one percent and that's from mild symptoms. But then you see it out here in the world and media say hey it's a pandemic of the unvaccinated the vaccines are working incredibly when people are getting infected. it's mild symptoms. Most people had mild symptoms in the first place prior to the vaccines existing omitted. We just forget. But it's real eight out of nine people who contracted covert mild or as symptomatic prior to the vaccines. Now it's the same thing with the vaccines but it's just like always the vaccines now. What happens because here. The cdc is not tracking the vaccinated individuals upwards of nine out of ten folks with these breakthrough infections infected with delta variant. Making it even more crafty at affecting other people. They're not counting nine. Out of ten of these cases of nine hundred ten of these cases. I so hard to get a beat on who's actually getting infected with covert right now unless we actually grab a specific cluster of people were both vaccinated in unvaccinated. Intest of them.

"The notion that messenger. Arna would become a cornerstone or even a fixture in how medicine is developed and administered in this country was arguably speculative that is obviously changed with the pandemic the mri vaccines have helped deliver the world. From what would have been a worse situation and have thus far made upwards of tens of billions of dollars for the inventors and so i think what we've seen recently. We're going to talk about this week. Is the pharmaceutical world. Kind of wrapping. Its mind around. The potential of them are in a and deciding that it would like a cut of those future multibillion dollar revenues and i think the the sticking point for that this week was was sanofi. The french multinational drug giant paying three point two billion dollars for an mri focused company called translate bio that it had previously worked with vaccines for cova nineteen and other things. Yeah let's talk about that deal in particular. I saw multiple takes on it. You know santa sanofi has to be an a. And so buying its partner makes a whole lot of sense in another take Translate bio is working with sanofi on kovic vaccine and they said they're expecting to get phase one to data on their cova vaccine in the third quarter of this year so one just has to wonder like what do they expect to. What headway do they expect to make their marnie vaccine space with translate by or maybe that project doesn't matter that much and they're just making a longer term bet on a in case you know that starts to eat their lunch in the flu shot. Business for example. Yeah i mean. I think the one read through the that kind support either conclusion. Is that if you're a multinational drug company that this was the case with monoclonal. Antibodies decades ago. This is something you just have to have a role in at least in the minds of these people because similar to this a couple of weeks ago i think we mentioned pfizer. In their earnings call had a slide Showing their pipeline and included. Mr rene stuff and they had their cova nineteen vaccine which as we know is co developed with biotech and a couple other things appended with an asterisk saying partnered with biotech. But then there was this whole other field on the right side of the slide of other marnie projects down the road that bore no asterisk suggesting pfizer feels like it can go into this alone and glaxosmithkline which has worked with cure. Curovac has also made noise about building an mri business of its own so it does seem like there is and and those are vaccine heavy companies. So that's worth noting but that the consensus has kind of shifted as to just how speculative the future of marnie once seemed to be when the people that work on it with the likes of madonna and biotech. Definitely you know. Madonna reported earnings thursday morning and just laid out all of the things that is working on an mri from of course. It's kobe vaccine which for which they presented six month follow up data which is sort of comparable to the six months data. We got from pfizer last week. Overall madonna says ninety three percent six months pfizer overall was ninety one percent. But if you break that down to the last four to six months of that follow up. Madonna was still ninety two percent Whereas visor went down to eighty four percent at months for two six. The caveat to all of this is that the data cutoff was in march. This was before delta was circulating and so it's not super relevant to this moment. Were in right now but it does suggest that madonna's efficacy maybe holds up a little better but you know we need to see the real world data. They spent a lot of the time on their conference call. talking about their expectation that boosters will still be needed that the delta variant poses greater risks will see more vaccine breakthroughs with it and they think everybody should start getting boosted. In the winter weather health authorities actually agree with that is another question. We'll talk about that with our wonderful colleague. Helen brands wall in the next segment But you know. Madonna clearly is not limiting itself to the coca nineteen vaccine. They've got a whole lot of other stuff. They're working on right and i thought i was going into the earnings presentation with kind of an eye on that. Because you know. Madonna as not a company Short on confidence and nor should they be considering the recent success and they have been billing themselves for a decade as truly the amarna company. And i remember you know the business. Pitch from co stefan sale years ago was one amarnath will prove to be a cornerstone of medicine and to madonna will be the partner of choice for every you know everyone who is finding religion late they will have to beat a path to our doorstep Because they wanted on this thing now one arguably has happened to kind of to what we were discussing. The likes of pfizer sanofi k seemed to think that they can do this without madonna's help and so i was curious going into earnings. Call what what's maderna's kind of counteroffensive going to be. How are they going to own the future. Now that the world has come around to their way of thinking about this technology and the answer was kind of interesting. I mean one. They're doing a one billion dollar stock. Buy back and this is a stock. That is i assume outstripped every other drug company with respect to its gains this year and the company's valuation now about hundred sixty eight billion dollars which forces even the most bullish analysts kind of tie themselves into knots to say i believe in medina but this evaluation anyway and they have to twelve point two billion dollars worth of cash so they're sitting in a remarkably enviable position. So i think what a lot of people were going into their earnings call wondering is like okay. So what are you going to do with that. Cash that can kind of further wall off the future to prevent the lakes adviser from coming in and taking what what you bill and the answer basically seemed to be. We're going to look at getting into genome editing. Which is really logical. So you know. Madonna has has obviously Built a business run. Mr rene but the other thing they've had to invest in the lipid nanoparticles sort of fatty envelopes. That get the marinade to their target cells. It turns out. Lipid nanoparticles also key. Too many genome editing technologies and other genetic medicines. And so that was really interesting to me that basically we might have gotten a glimpse at the future of medina which would be a company that is obviously built upon mri but would also be Folding in these probably complementary ideas of genome editing which basically consolidate them as at least in the biotech sector accompanied with the tans on every really really really hyped up technology. So that'll be interesting. Well that doesn't sound great for its valuation necessarily but just on that point i. It's just mind blowing to note. But they're not is approaching as you said one hundred and seventy billion dollars in market valuation. If you look at other big biotechs gilead is about eighty six billion dollars. Amgen one hundred thirty four billion dollars biogen fifty billion dollars so you're starting to get up to be be more comparable to companies like merck valued at one hundred ninety billion dollars lilly and pfizer around two hundred fifty billion dollars so madonna is just massive is just like unbelievable to know that it's that big and really interesting to hear about what it's gonna do with all of that money and.

Chump will probably be necessary They expect to sell thirty. Four billion dollars of corona virus vaccines this year. So i don't know. Should we be listening or should we be listening to them when they're like. Oh you definitely need a third. They're just trying to sell more. I don't know here's the thing because it did come together so quickly. Yeah the fact that gotten this far in the little amount of time as they have is remarkable So i'm kind of a okay. If if they come back and need a third shot maybe they're improving their variance things. Change gotta keep working because that's how these things typically work. That's why the flu shot.

"You're listening to t. I today's episode. I sat down with brad stone. The senior executive editor for global technology at bloomberg brad is also a new york times and wall street journal bestselling author of titles such as the everything store. The upstarts as well as his new book amazon unbound. In this episode. We cover why his first book on amazon deserve a sequel amazon's explosive growth in multiple industries as well as failures like the fire phone the leadership style of jeff bezos. Good and bad and much much more with the amazon success and jeff. Bezos is meteoric rise in wealth over the last year in particular. I've taken a lot of interest in brad's work. Learning about the world's richest man is always a fascinating discussion and today is no exception so with that. Please enjoy this deep dive into amazon. And jeff bezos with brad stone. Listening to the investors podcast. Well we study the financial markets and read the books that influenced self made billionaires the most we keep you informed unprepared for the unexpected. Welcome to the investors podcast. I'm your host trae lockerbie. And today i am so excited to have with me brad stone brad. Welcome back to the show. I try well. I got first of all tell you that i really enjoyed this new book of yours amazon unbound but just for some background for our audience. You've actually been on the show before it was a while ago. It was episode one forty two. We discuss one of your previous books. The upstarts a longtime ago. We did a book review of your first book called the everything store all the way back on episode eleven so i encourage the artist to go back and check those out especially if you haven't read the book yet but back then on episode eleven amazon was a thirty four billion dollar company. And jeff bezos was worth measly sixteen billion or so hopper so a lot has changed since then so but. Why don't you tell me what led you to write the sequel to the everything store. It was after published. The upstarts and i was thinking about my next project and as you mentioned the everything store was really the i was the first phase amazon's history. It's kind of the old testament the rise in the nineties on the near fall during the dot com bust them and then the revival with prime kindle in aws. And i guess it was looking at it. I was not the fifty billion dollar company. I wrote about that cute. Little e commerce company was now taking over the world and it wasn't just the geographic expansion but new product lines like alexa and the amazon. Go store and w acid become juggernaut and amazon was invading hollywood and at the same time basis that kind of transformed in front of our eyes. And this was. I was deciding about this book in two thousand seventeen so it quite the transformation we see now but it was the beginning of it in our and he was he was about to be one of the five wealthiest people moral try just thought you know what if the everything store was the old testament now. There's a new testament to be written a sequel an empire strikes back or godfather to as then. I didn't know you know how what an opportunity that was. Because as i was working on the book there was. Hq to and bezos entanglements with the the tabloids and then a bunch of antitrust questions then ultimately the pandemic and so it really was even a better story than the one. I told him the everything store. You mentioned bezos transformation. What was coming to mind for me. Was his physical transformation. He went from being the sort of bookworm selling books to now the terminator esque figure walking around. Selling anything you want's right. So beyond maybe the physical transformation. How else have you seen basis evolves since your last book. That's an interesting question it was. It was kind of the one of the main questions that i had in the book right. How how and why is this guy changed so much and i'll give you a couple of pieces of evidence of that change one fighting with donald trump on twitter to building luxury yacht in secret in amsterdam a yacht that is going to launch later. This year basil's was never not only was. He never a yacht guy. My impression was that he would have frowned upon that kind of extravagance he loved his private jet in the early days because it saved him tie it was all about using time most efficiently his interest in hollywood throwing parties at his property in los angeles so all sorts of ways that he had fundamentally changed and i went into explorer. That and one of the people. I talked to jamie diamond. And they've been friends and colleagues on some projects and diamond basically said you know. His bazo says is just opened up to a larger world like he had been early. Jeff had been so focused on amazon and the mechanics of the business and just trying to survive and then the basis that we see that i write about in amazon unbound is someone who bit by bit searched to realize the challenges and joys of the world beyond amazon and happens incrementally. It's buying the washington post in two thousand thirteen starting to direct amazon into hollywood. About two thousand fifteen not not because of any vanity project but because he needed to replace you need to put something else in prime because shipping wasn't going to be the differentiator that it once was so and then the the requests on upon him to to give more back to philanthropic initiatives that starts to open his eyes up to the challenges of climate change and then an accompanying personal change in his life. And and i get into this a little bit in the book. Even though i'd set up to write a business book. I kind of had to do it. But you know as he's becoming more of a figure on the world stage became sort clear that his his former wife mckenzie wasn't really that interested in going to the parties and and hobnobbing with celebrities and the elites in the way that does seem to enjoy and so of course that accompanied another dramatic changes. Divorce the relationship lord sanchez. And now you see him. Sitting courtside a wimbledon and meeting the french president. I was in fantastic. Closed and in front of the taj mahal like clearly different guy than the early basis. You brought up mackenzie. So i have to ask kinsey. Scott formerly bezos. Left you a one-star review of your prior book. What was that about an and how do you think she might rate this new book yours. That's fond memory. Two thousand thirteen looking at amazon website. And the the one star review for mackenzie basis pops up. But you'd also also might remember trae. It wasn't the only one andy chassis. who's about to be the new. Ceo of amazon. He also left me a one star review and the pr guy at the time. The head pr guy left me a one star review and so what that was about was very upset and angry. Jeff bezos trying to throw an asterix against against the book and object to things in it that he did in life and i sort of understand that looking back perversely. Maybe ended up helping my book. A little bit certainly drew more attention to it. I don't think they raise anything substantive substantive at the time. And i think in retrospect the everything store really did become the definitive account of the early days. We don't know what mackenzie scott thinks of this book. And i presume. I won't be fortunate enough to get the one star review this time if i guess i would guess that she probably hasn't read it really does seem like she's moved on spending her time on other things including our philanthropy fair enough and the reason i ask is mainly because that asterix as you mentioned could have the potential you know to tarnish the reputation behind the book saying this guy didn't do his research. But if i read correctly you did over three hundred interviews for this new book so you do plenty of research and maybe walk through a little bit about those interviews..

"thirty four billion dollars" Discussed on This Week in Startups

"I am obsessed with business frauds. Theranos made off perhaps nicola perhaps tether were people doing things that are not on the up and up. while there's a company called lordstown motors. That might be a fraud And it could be going to zero. I am using. I know how to use the words now As having done over a thousand different podcasts. i'd had a frame this Without getting myself in trouble but just this morning. Cnbc is reported that lordstown motors. Another pre revenue ev. Spac okay. so it's free revenue. That's one thing it's in a really hard space electric vehicles and it's a spec away to get public quicker. Maybe with less scrutiny. Not in all cases but you do have to buyer beware when you're looking at this category of companies going public. They tend to be early They confirmed they're being investigated by the doj for its reporting of pre orders. Like it's one thing to not even have customers but then to lie about reorders This is really gnarly so two weeks ago. The wall street journal reported the doj was enquiring with lordstown which cnbc confirmed. Okay so we got real journalistic outlets straight on cnbc confirming that the doj's looking now they're enquiring. That doesn't mean they're guilty right just because somebody's looking into something doesn't mean that there is a crime it just means they're suspicion and there's enough of suspicion that the doj would take it seriously and they have a list of things they could look into and they've chosen to look into this one major red flag Lordstown motor sat in filing on thursday. That it had received two subpoenas from the sec. Four the production of documents and information including relating to the merger between diamond peak and legacy lordstown and reorders vehicles and we have been informed by the. Us attorney's office for the southern district of new york that it is investigating this matter and we hear about the southern district of new york all the time. That's where rudy. Giuliani started his career before. Going absolutely bonkers. That's where pre pahara from the great cafe insider cafe dot com and subscribe to his amazing podcasts or stay tuned with pre which is a free one anyway. The southern district of new york is involved. That is a major red flag. They are serious and they are known for having a very independent streak to them So before he breakdown lordstown. I want to remember Jason's law jason's law is something. I came up with an eye. Codified it I think in september of two thousand twenty had been talking about it for years. But this is my i called it. Originally might theranos rule if a star becomes worth one billion before they launched their product. They are either going to fail or complete fraud examples. Punch-up let's workshop. This and i did in fact Punch it up in december twenty. Remember jason's law if you invest in a company without a launch product and overbill at over a billion dollar valuation. You will lose all your money and it might turn out to be a fraud. So i've been work shopping. This concept nikola ticker symbol and k. La his a private company As a private company. I said in this tweet would be worth about one hundred million dollars. Max So i expected it in this tweet to lose ninety five percent. We had trevor milton on the pot episode number. Ten ninety it is a classic episode. It will be one of the ten best episode of my career because my god. This person was delusional. And i think that was like peak. Trevor and it all came apart shortly thereafter so in march twenty twenty one. I made my third version of jason's rule if a private company reaches a one billion dollar valuation before it launches a product or has customers. It's probably going to fail and it might actually be a fraud so be careful retail investors when you buy fisker or nikola. You're taking a big risk. And so the reason i refine. This is It's very rare for a private company. Reach billion dollar valuation before it launches a product or has customers and i. I put that caveat in there because you could have people pre ordering Things like virgin galactic which had a very successful launch this past weekend karaj relations to richard branson. And when you think about that they did. Have i think six hundred preorder of two hundred k. Those people actually paid money or you have people reordering cars. Now whether it's tessler afford so i could see a situation where which people preorder and give their money that those are not letters of intent so keep that in mind but it seems like i'm now reminding people of jason's law every three to four months. Oh consider this your three to four months quarterly reminder and some very important things to keep in mind about these red flags that we covered valuations. That don't make logical sense. What would this company's valuation be. Let's take a spanking company being the private markets. Well sometimes you know because it's been a private market valuation in other words airbnb before they went public had this private market valuation. Now they're going public now. That's a company airbnb that we all have rented airbnb reno. Somebody said they have a product in market and tons of customers and tons of revenue. So they don't fall under jason's law but as an example. You know the previous valuation nikola peaked at around thirty four billion dollars in june of twenty twenty with no revenue and basically close to know product. As far as anybody can tell. And i mentioned that as a private company ventures investors would have probably invested at them around hundred million. Max you put in twenty million you twenty percent of the company that seems like a rich evaluation. But you know i. It's reasonable for a hardware company like that that's capital intensive but but that's a three hundred forty x multiple from my valuation. And i am an expert on this. This is what i do for a living for ten years. I've invested in over three hundred early stage. Private market companies. I know what i'm talking about. And so now they're trading at around five point five billion which is about fifty times too high and so once again. If you can't see who's holding the bag check your hands. It's probably you so the people who bought nikola at thirty four billion thinking. oh well. This is a fraction of the valuation apple or tesla amazon. You're literally comparing the most successful companies in the history of humanity against you..

"And others in congress is on the nova act and novid being nullifying opportunities for variance to infect industrial act. But that would essentially that bill passed would make the united states the leader in global vaccine equity in in basically calling for the authorization of thirty four billion dollars to cover the cost of producing eight billion vaccine doses than we can got korea world. That would be you know enough to sixty percent of population than ninety two different countries and also set in place the more processes to prevent future pandemics from from having the kind of impact that this one did so this you know issue. Global vaccine equity is something we care deeply about because as you said until we vaccinate the world. We're not going to be able to fully emerge victorious from this pandemic absolutely incredible that that hasn't occurred. Necessarily all sort of seems obvious. But in any case i can scarcely believe we're approaching end of our time together because wow impact is really. It's emerging one of the most influential organizations amongst our community and aspirin. Just such honor and pleasure to speak with you. I do want to ask you that. I can't imagine trying to prioritize all these things but when you wake up every day and if you're looking at the balance of your head of you what would you place as some of the highest priorities or things that are under to do less. Obviously the global vaccine equity ranks highly but it sort of never ending right because there constantly the need to Protect voter rights and but would love to hear from you on that. Yeah and it's a tough question because like you. They're so many issues on the policy agenda right that matter deeply to our communities as well as other communities of color though in addition to the ones we've talked about as you said voting rights is really key for us to protect The national level and in state. You know i think. A lot of the discourse around voting rights tend to exclude the impact of ramona's on asian american voters. But you know. Asian americans were the most likely to use vote by mail and to vote early in a lot of these laws. That are passed thing you know are going to make it much more difficult for asian americans to to vote in and have their voices heard so that is something we are pushing for through it. Gatien through partnership with other groups and supporting national efforts to protect that sacred rate immigration is another thing that is coming down the pipe for us in particular. We are doing a lot to support a group. Individuals call documented dreamers who are the children of long-term veto holder who each twenty one age out and so no longer have status in large part because of the green card backlog they're aging out and no longer have started and you know in many cases estimate the unfortunate and really hard decision to sell d for and you know that was a group that we are working very hard to protect an ending. You know kind of aging out issue for them. They you know grew up in america and you should have a path to citizenship there. So anything we could talk about a day in general Priorities you know for me with ethically. I think it's important that an impact were continuing to build coalitions with other communities of color just given that our faith are intertwined.

"thirty four billion dollars" Discussed on MEDIA INDIGENA : Indigenous current affairs

"Precinct. Office of the police was stoned windows. Broken a liquor store was robbed. And you know i wanna throw some words out at you. Unrest uprising malay chaos. Hell on earth. I think one reporter used All of these are phrases are shorthand used by the media to describe events on the ground there in the wake of monday's killing and the tuesday release of the video. And i'm wondering how to media go about choosing which word to use. I guess. I wonder about how well or how thoroughly they way how charged in fraught. They can be or do they. Just kind fling them around as if none of them are loaded interesting observation in question i mean i think it's really different depending on which media right so if you're a reporting live for tv you're literally making it up on the spot but also very influenced by other things you've read or heard or how your editors talked to you about it or how it's talked about in the newsroom. Prints tends to be much more careful how they choose words. You'll remember when we discussed though whatsoever. Land fence there was a huge debate especially among print reporters about whether it was a protest orlando fence right. So it's similar here but you know what's really important. Underlying all of those different words is whether or not what's happening is perceived as legitimate or illegitimate and on what basis road. So we you know the word. Looting has come up a lot and that has a bit of a history especially in us media if you think back to hurricane katrina You know there was a famous listing media studies comparison between two media outlets one of whom pictured Black individuals Taking food much-needed obviously in the aftermath of hurricane katrina and they called them looters right they were looting whereas when they showed a similar picture of white individuals taking food they were finding sources and supplies right so there is quite a You know a kind of overshadowing history of how media has reported on these particular kinds of events right and and without much depth. I think that's that's a real challenge for media is to to look past just the event centric aspect of it and try to understand really what's going on and what's going on when you use a word like looting let's say because if you look at the definition actually looked it up today. The miriam webster dictionary defines looting as to plunder or sack in war to rob especially on a large scale usually by violence or corruption and the second definition to seize season. Carry away by force especially in war so these words really have a rudeness in in conflict and in war right and so had also riots. I've seen it also connects interrupted also with riots. Yeah exactly you could do the same kind of word searcher look for deeply into definition of a word and see how it's been used and recognized that even whilst they're using these very loaded words they're not often especially mainstream. Media is not often opening it up and looking at the broader history. Like say how we've discussed it already on this podcast right In the last few minutes we've really kind of opened up in in various ways and try to understand it as both current and historical ongoing event in relation to the individual's right. So i think it's really. It's tough for media. Who are doing live reporting. But they're also very influenced by the way it's been framed are very influenced by each other. How 'bout i'll throw at stuff. That's caught my eye and i've retweeted and then you can just just chip in. Don't don't wait like okay. So i re tweeted Haymarket books It's responding to a tweet from cnbc. Leave which says american billionaires got four hundred and thirty four billion dollars richard during the pandemic to which haymarket books goes found the looters whose looting and plundering the earth the one percent. This is why. I just don't have time you know even even seen native people in black people Atkins before the native people. Because i can critique more because i'm not black fletch talking saying oh don't sink to the level of your oppressors please. We couldn't if we tried there. So egregious in their theft. Killing like that cannot be replicated by people of color at this stage right in history. So it's it's such breaking a window on targeting walking out with some tv's in diapers. This should not be compared to what amazon is doing to what the banks have done. You know please. There's a scholar scholar by the name of mata. She tweeted an irene. Tweeted in response to that same. Cnbc article this looting. Bhai billionaires is what sets fires and burns down stores you do not get one without the other and to us on this quote unquote side of of the ledger. Any framing of looting in a country built on looting is laughable. But on the other hand this would be a novel take for for many many settlers right in some ways. That's the challenge. When it comes to destabilizing an entrenched frame. It's really hard for media to get to recognizing events as stemming from broader systemic and historical injustice and. That doesn't mean that we should feel sorry for them or excuse it or anything i think. Critique is absolutely appropriate but the forms and styles that we have for journalism. Don't for this nor the habits right of of report is during these moments and you can explain in a couple of different ways. Or at least i do right. One is that property is really the basis for society. So that you know we can all relate to the value of property goes the thinking not necessarily true right but the other is that We're addicted to some notion that there's Stability and and in that stability justice available and i think what Communities of color and indigenous communities have continually pushed back. And said is actually. There isn't a lot of justice available for us You know the police in this particular region is no. They're not An entity that we're gonna call if there's a problem Because it's it's more dangerous if we get the police involved right that something Has been said about that particular region right city And and there's you know the the fact that there's a whole Research reports done that. Explain the history of minneapolis police when it comes to indigenous communities and black communities and this is this is telling you there's a broader problem here in yet The story that is coming out in mainstream media is exactly the ono things are fire and you know ono. Stability is being threatened. Ono property is being threatened Instead of really using these events to open up the broader themes of injustice and because that does threaten you know the kind of stability that that media often try to represent on critically And that doesn't mean that we don't have fairly stable societies. That just means that you know. There's a certain kind of social order that media are often Complicit in in propping up and it doesn't necessarily tell the stories of those who are not beneficiaries of the dominant narratives of society and certainly the dominant histories of society. But it's interesting because the media seems to privilege ordering stability over all else but order stability that that's the status quo of the status. Quo is unjust. The only way it's going to change it's going to take some rupture is going to take. Something extraordinary is gonna take people in the streets kim. When's the last time you heard read or saw any serious contemplation in the media mainstream media regarding the abolition of police for I don't think ever. I do you know the abolition stuff i get on twitter from a lot of black scholars allies and indigenous anti-colonial scholars. As well yeah. I don't i don't wanna see. They always wanna make everything a multicultural project. If we just rainbow up the police force what we see that a lot of those police that this young black man arc car are calling out in the streets of minneapolis today..

"Maths those that your that was your so the next part might not make all of us so happy military spending right now. Is we record from october first. Twenty twenty to the end of september. This year is going to ring in at around nine hundred and thirty four billion dollars that we know of so. That doesn't count black bag which is inevitable. This means that military spending is the second largest expense in the entirety of the federal budget. The only thing that beats it social security with that much money involved that many people involved. It's really difficult to articulate the full extent the ripple effects here. Especially when you consider that the dod the department of defense is the single largest employer inside the united states and it makes sense depending if you think about it size there over one point. Four million human beings on active duty. And that's around. Seven hundred. Eighteen thousand civilian personnel so that that's two separate groups just so we're understanding this. There's another one point one million people who are in the national guard which is another separate thing. National guard and reserve are being grouped together there. And that's not even counting the other millions of people who are employed in those other related industries that we've been describing here you're raytheon's your laki. Your other giant manufacturers. It's it's crazy to think the there are so many people working for this single industry really. Yeah because it's kind of like a meta industry. An uber industries an industry of industries. There's a very complicated ven diagram there. That i don't i don't want us to have to draw it but if you want to please do draw the ven diagram what you see is this meta industry and send it to us. Conspiracy iheartradio dot com. The thing is matt. You're you're absolutely right just for a small small snapshot aerospace and defense industry alone that that doesn't count as the military budget. That's a separate three hundred and ninety. Six billion dollars is event diagram. You know because they work hand in hand but that figure they're nice billion. It's about one point. Eight percent the gdp of the us which doesn't sound like a lot until you realize we're talking about the gdp of the us which is one of the biggest numbers so while people might want not want to say. Hey let's keep up those foreign interventions. They definitely don't want to stop building the weapons and the hardware that inherently makes those interventions possible if the budget and the this is a very ugly truth and a lot of people don't like to hear if the budget and the need for these things evaporated overnight it would be an unprecedented economic catastrophe. The great depression would have its name changed. It would just be the first one you know or something like that or it would be the old depression now in the new depression because millions of people are out of work Everything is closing down. We we can't even project the ripple effects it's like if you talk about the oil industry ending overnight. Does that mean that. There's a certain callousness at play here like shouldn't we be able to predict or model this type of stuff. What this type of behavior kind of creates the ripple effects we should know and we should know that we're too dependent on it. But i feel like there's a certain kind of willful ignorance towards that By citizens by makers and by the ceos of these companies or maybe the. Ceo's are the ones that know the most but just give the least amount of maybe. But i don't know. I'm sorry if i'm reaching here. I just feel like there should be a scenario where we should be able to model this stuff out and not be completely surprised when hayes look go it turns out. We're all war junkies now but you see..

"thirty four billion dollars" Discussed on Kush Conversations

"This can be a group baser. Yeah okay so. In my opinion i think it's kind of a broad question like capitalism has a really defined answer but to me capitalism. Is it's class warfare to me. It is exactly what it is so like middle class versus lower class versus upper-class will that that's assuming that there's actually an middle which you could argue there not in hasn't been since upper vs lower. Yeah yeah yeah. And the people in the middle are confused as fuck is to where where exactly they should be see. That's how i am 'cause like i don't make enough money to pay for my schooling but not make enough money to have the state pay for my schooling. So i'm like i'm not middle class. That's getting kind of foxton away. That's like ninety percent of americans though bro this so what do you think is the answer. The answer should be on on. This is my take on a kit. So miami of this like we can have billionaires but once you hit one billion anything after that bureau like i don't think tank but here but hear me out just enzo has the most money in the fucking world it would take the average human being now is st need like four hundred eighty thousand years to try and catch up to essentially if you were working minimum wage. Okay so here's my take is you can be a billionaire but you stay at one billion. You don't cap deals. Adelson that your your employees raise and you give charity. that's it. are you guys running deaths. Jeff bezos net worth one hundred billion skull. Say he's actually. I believe he's the world's first trillion on the station. We'll see networks different though because they they take out your losses. i think it's not yuan. Must pass them. So it's gotta be less than one hundred fifty four. It is less than a hundred and fifty. Four billion one hundred. Yeah but still one hundred thirty four billion dollars so so wait. Actually it's more than that. Jeff bezos is one hundred eighty two billion dollars. That's see that's fucking crazy. Why can't basil's a thousand dollars. Take everybody he give everyone in the world a million fucking dollars and delights. It'd be like man worded like ten percent of my money. Go inside. What the fuck man. That's one mansion. I can't have a game. I should phrase. It's hoarding it. It's you know it is one of my favorite games ever those capitalism monopoly. When you play monopoly that is you. Buy you basically. If you buy the most things you're gonna win. Usually reality though are so stocks. Here's here's a theory. That i had man and this is like this isn't like possible or anything. This is like an perfect dream world. The like everyone on the earth is in it together and everyone has their own path. You know everyone's going to be doing something. And if you need something that person should just be able to do it for you and then you do whatever you do for someone else whenever they need it. And it's basically a constant cycle. Everyone helping each other whenever they need it so much that you don't need currency system it's just so human nature to help whenever you can. How you so. It'd be like we're at mcdonald's. I'm in front of you. I buy your meal. You buy another meal that guy buys. There's no money it's like you're a cook. You cook food for someone. Who's a banker who takes care of your money for someone who makes products who'd that go to your grocery store that someone working in your grocery store you know so on so on and so on. It's just a constant cycle of everyone refuelling each other's needs in everyone's on constant responsibilities as just a constant equilibrium of peace. That's like my dream world. It's almost like an aa. But i want people to still have emotions and shit you know like i said it's like a dream world simulation type thing. Do you just described the sims aldous. Huxley's i do not like. Can you repeat that name is he is. He's a writer as looked real fast. Jets serious things so yeah so come back to you so you just described aldous. Huxley's brave new world the original and very judge whoa self. So he essentially rights and how everybody is in a certain class c Again most work in the fields they are basically developed in a two to be any and dumb and stupid. Just do their job minding bumbling retarded you have the officer the elites and the to fucking gorgeous and perfect ones and stuff like that. That's essentially what you described. They work for us and so on so forth. Initials to revolve in circles could be identified. See i wanted without light. That robotic feel like. I want everyone to still have a sense of any individuality. But here's the thing. Though in this book they are all they have their own little quirks alike individuality soviet.

"thirty four billion dollars" Discussed on Republic Keeper - with Brian O'Kelly

"Back at hit that button. So so it's coordinated and there You know i think nunes is onto something that there might be a rico case there and so the the question is are we sunk. Is it all over. If the tech companies can do this in america if they can silence people in america can they just silence people everywhere and is it all over. Should we all just pack up and go home and just figure it. That's the end. I mean after all look at this. This is facebook twitter. Google spotify snapchat instagram pinterest tiktok youtube twitch read it shop by all band trump. They've all been trump now. Those are all companies. That i have been doing business with at some level and i'm making arrangements to move everything that i have with them with them into other places because again you can't keep filling your enemies wagons when you're in a war and these people are in a war against you and i. They're in a war against free speech during a war against free expression right and so good news The us a pretty big company or company country and china's a pretty big country in russia's a pretty big country. And i would never thought that this would be the way it is but it looks like india is going to be the ones who are going to step up and basically lead the world and free speech. The big tech is turning vogue. It has no longer and uninfluential group of technological platforms the way twitter and facebook booted out trump or how google has cut off bala a social network popular with trump supporters. We now understand how seriously bit tech influence electoral or political landscape per se. The indian lawmakers have taken a hint from what is happening in the united states. It is a wake up call for india and a signal that what the big tech and do as a matter of national security for democracy like india israel and many others twitter and other social media platforms simply cannot be allowed to decide the fate of a democratic system. Twitter's vindictive action against trump simply weeks of such blatant vendetta that it is hard for the country's not to notice after the us presidential election results there were clear indications engagement on flagged trump tweets also started getting limited inadvertently and what happened after the. Us capitol breach actually exposes. How partisan the big tech and get imagine twitter took down trump's twitter handle even though it was the most popular politician handle on the platform. Twitter has literally silenced opposition against the democrats in a single stroke. Big tech can remove who at wants and when it wants also these social media platforms. Get to decide who stays which reduces public discourse to absurdity. Take for example. What senator lindsey graham has to say the ayatollah can tweet but trump cannot says a lot about the people who run twitter. American tech corporations have many reasons to get partisan in the us for starters. House democrats in the us spoke about big tech monopoly last year and suggested measures to rein in such monopoly power. The big tech itself wouldn't want its monopoly to be cut down by the incoming biden administration and turning partisan helps them stay in the good books of the biden administration. However what the american corporations are doing is not specific. They can easily replicate what they did in the us. Some twitter trolls in india. For example demanded that indian minister. Narendra modi's twitter handle be suspended. This of course doesn't make any sense because be moldy is now the most popular politician handle on twitter after trump's handle suspended. But what if twitter suddenly finds it logical to suspend chemo these account after all if a platform can suspend the us presidents handle can it also not suspend the indian prime ministers handle andrew member social media platforms. Don't even have to offer a cogent explanation for their actions. We are talking about democracy here and in such systems the ground norm of countries. Legal system should decide who stays on social media platform and who gets booted out. How does the big tech get to decide on matters that have a strong influence on the public narrative. This is what the a member of india's parliament from the ruling party. Agenda party also highlighted. He said i urged government to repeal it intermediaries guidelines rules during zero in parliament intermediaries as per the definition can't interfere in content on social media platforms but rules. They're under say otherwise. This anomaly must be addressed immediately. What the big tech does is not just a free speech issue but also something that closely concerns the protection and preservation of a sovereign republic each sovereign democracy needs it so internet infrastructure to avoid what happened with us. President trump indian. Legislators are realizing this and preparing to teach the big tech a tough lesson after what. The american corporations did to the us president in course of time the democratic world as a whole must drift away from the big tech in this move happening in india. It's happening in the uk. It's happening in israel it's happening in the free world around the world. Us tech companies will have to change the way they operate or they'll left only with the us and chinese market which probably won't be enough for them back. Welcome back thanks again for joining so the good news. Excuse me news good news. These things have caused these guys pile money. Thirty four billion dollars raised from facebook's market cap So far so far. Five billion as from twitter's market cap that's forty billion between them I looked and i won't even say i won't even say it's. It's the amount of money that i have spent with amazon.

I use the analogy of the tripod. Right where there's the pcr tests the the numbers. There's different things that we kick one of these out. This thing will collapse and we're already there. We just need people to recognize that. This thing is not just wobbly but damn near tipped over already so great conversation. I recommend you check it out. Listen for yourself now to start off the capital discussion in general. What's following afterward. Really i recommend you check out the video i did if you wanna get into the ins and outs of that day. And what seemed important to be honest even looking back. There's only probably one or two things. I would add to that that you know for the relevant full picture but we're seeing this continue forward and i again just want to point out the obvious. The it's unbelievable. We can be staring at a sitting president right and being deleted on multiple platforms. We showed you twitter now. It's on facebook now. I look if you i understand. How did their hatred of not just trump but the ideals that they the people believe trump was espousing right whether he did or not is different. But the idea of doing things for americans before spending money on israel's government or you know the idea of america which was never really embodied by trump's administration but the idea about our constitutional rights at the idea of you know the constitution in general freedom of speech. All these different things that are seemingly what he says to fight for but clearly is attacking them everywhere he can but he's an independent person after this will that's a different story. But they're attacking that concept they're attacking the idea so anybody that comes after this and says well. We defend free speech. We'll suddenly now. You're a nazi insurrection terrorist. But i didn't even say anything about. I'm a i'm i'm not a fan of trump doesn't even matter the moment you're now it's onto the side defending this horrible action regardless of who it is or what is it about. You are now on that side and it's the same thing we see with two party politics everywhere indefinitely now but don't worry they care about free speech dialogue like jack say but of course then they do the exact opposite but of course facebook sees thirty four billion dollar thirty four billion dollars range from the market cap..

How the US-China trade war has changed the world

"One of the biggest economic and I'm ex stories of the year was the US China. Trade war the. US and China are the two largest economies in the world and they're also major trading partners so when they do things like impose tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars of goods travelling between them those ripple effects can be felt everywhere from your wallet to Wall Street. It quick recap. President Trump has claimed that bad trade deals and unbear- Chinese policies have cost the. US Big time. He's also complained about the US trade deficit with China. Trade deficit is when a country imports more than it exports not. Everyone agrees that a trade deficit is bad for the economy but trump does think so and sees tariffs as a path toward ending the trade deficit with the EU Mexico and Canada and most of all China the first shot in the trade war with China started in early two thousand eighteen. That's when the trump administration ordered a thirty percent tariff on solar panels and washing machines and China clapback with its own tariffs on thirty. Four billion dollars of goods later. China also filed a challenge with the World Trade Organization alleging that the solar panel tariff was in violation of trade rules and was hurting China's trade interests that back and forth retaliation dance went like that for months with the trump administration carousing new rounds of tariffs and China announcing that it would do the same but the whole time. The hope has been that the tariffs would push China to make a deal at the root route of this. The trump administration also wants China to change how it does business the. US claims that Chinese firms are stealing US intellectual property patents or are forcing US businesses to hand over their technology in order to business in China earlier this month. The trump administration announced that it's reached phase one of a trade deal with China but economists have warned that trade wars like this can have negative effects on American consumers and American businesses. Even if there's a trade deal on the horizon is in

"Won the voice of the city wherein at number nine's roosevelt street just a block from the banana beach one finds beto pizza which was recently recently determined by the generally considered authoritative for such matters big seven travel website to be the seventh best slice of pizza in the world according to big seven's sevens report quote there is one thing that the vast majority of the world agrees upon that without a doubt pizza is one of the world's tastiest dishes but where exactly will you find the world's best pizza end quote at the top of the list at number one one finds l'industrie pizzeria in williamsburg brooklyn judge to be the world's best because of quote it's combination of a perfect base and super imaginative toppings and quote number two is faremo pizza on via francesco saliha in naples italy which is quote perfectly fluffy with toppings that are simply outstanding and quote the scientists have big seven organization noted that the greatest virtue of a slice of bezos peter is the superior mouth feel and the fact that these slices there are quote unquote melt in the mouth good now it will be easy i think to overlook the magnitude of the accomplishment of those visa being seventh best in the world will surely strike anyone is a fine achievement still we all live in a world in which only gold silver and bronze stand on the podium and indeed only gold has the stirring employer of hearing it's anthem so one might be forgiven for regarding as an also ran an establishment that concocted the seventh best slice of pizza in the world and each morning created to the fresh however as professor alexander lee of the center for the study of the renaissance at the university of warwick and that is center spelled c. e. n. t. r. e. to you immediately sense it's gravitas wrote finally in a brilliant essays entitled simply a history of pizza that quote pizza is the world's favorite fast food food and quote as lee explains pizza has been enjoyed since antiquity in one form or another and the word pizza appears in a tenth century latin manuscript composed in eta in lazio italy but since the late eighteenth century when modern pizza was i baked in naples the popularity of the dish has increased geometrically the nine ninety seven seven manuscript records that the tenant of a local property pledged to transfer to the bishop of eta do a decent pizzas or twelve pizzas peter's on every christmas day and another twelve every easter sunday but i digress to understand the ubiquity of pizza and the vast -ness of its popularity one naturally turns two PM q. or pizza magazine quarterly the industry's most trusted source which is famous for its annual pizza power report or PBR quote a a state of the industry analysis and quote wherein one finds that fully one hundred and thirty four billion dollars a year are spent pizza and that the united states alone is home to seventy seventy five thousand two hundred forty three pizzerias extrapolating from the fact that sales in the US account for just under twenty seven percent of worldwide sales one may estimate that there are over two hundred and eighty thousand pizza restaurants on the planet in this light the fact that bezos pizza is the seventh best pizza in the world is revealed to be a truly remarkable chiffon putting it in the top zero point zero zero zero zero to five percent of all pizzerias then factor in that jews comprise less in two tenths of one percent of the world's population and you begin to see the true extent of the accomplishment finally as william slot of the to our organization and a student suit student of the crust and sauce has said quote there is no such thing as bad pizza only varying levels of deliciousness end quote raising the bar tremendously high hi among the two hundred eighty thousand unique instance of pizza and so long as we're taking a moment to appreciate the vast -ness of not just jewish but human accomplishment i have to express my admiration for the allergist at the big seven research organization the logistics of collecting samples from well over a quarter of a million restaurants around the globe and then exposing each to rigorous testing and compiling the vast amounts of data collected is itself an achievement that dwarfs the greatest accomplishments of earlier your generations like building the pyramids or landing humans on the moon the printing press or printing those pale little white m.'s on those fragile candy shells every eminem i'm an including every orange one and

Support for this podcast and the following message. Come from Deloitte, a global leader in digital transformation, helping clients apply technologies like cloud and AI to their unique business challenges. Deloitte, Kat com slash look. Again. As reported in the ever escalating US trade war with China. The White House has threatened to introduce twenty five percent tariffs on two hundred million dollars of Chinese goods. So how does that impact big tech? Let's us one of the US's, most valuable tech companies as an example, apple and more importantly, your apple products barons, Alexandra Skaggs has more Apple's earnings per share could be hurt fifteen to twenty percent by higher tariffs. If that happens, the smartphone maker may have to raise its prices or just accept lower profitability. China is a large part of apple supply chain and facts that estimates apple gets almost twenty percent of its revenues from there. So apple investors are probably hoping that the US and China reach a trade deal over the summer. In addition to tacking on the already announced five hundred billion in terrorists that could raise prices on almost half of everything. The US buys from China, president Xi Jinping said he would. Tally eight some say China could impose new taxes and added regulation on US companies. Others say China could introduce slowing deal approvals or encourage citizens to boycott US goods. Also impacted by the trade war escalation bitcoin. The favourite crypto currency of the masses has climbed ninety percent this year. What do we make of that? It's always tough to say. What makes bitcoins price move, but prices were low for most of this year until the past month and a half. Bitcoin started rallying right around the time. The US is trade war with China started heating up analysts say that investors are selling China's currency and moving into cryptocurrencies.
