"Weren't gonna go his way. He was doing a decent job at painting ninety-seven inside to to righties and and all that stuff and unfortunately the defense let him down in the field and a third base. I know we'll get into a lot of that later. But it was definitely rough. And yet every ten or did stabilize the game and we gave up some runs when he came in but he got out. And that's what matters. Like i look back at that weekend. And the story continues to be. Stephen matt's just continues to be unreal. I'm not expecting to be a era under two or even an era under three guy but his ground ball percentage back where it was in his best. As with the mets all his pitches are working right now. And i know we'll talk about the race. Here's coming up. But i'm sure as hell happy that he's opening the series to go up against tyler glass now tomorrow because glasnost been off to an unreal. Start to so if you're a betting man but under on the over under tomorrow because i don't think there's going to be many runs but yeah i mean injuries aside. I really think they should one. Saturday night's game like if tommy malone of all people if you told me tommy mom's going to start a game within the first two weeks of the season it'd be like what the fuck happened like. He's been fined and he was really really good and he was a good again. Last night and relief after thornton came out. So i think they should have won saturday's game. And you know what you gotta tip your cap too good pitcher and brady singer to shutting down on offense like that so i'm not as upset when i look back at sunday to should have won both games on saturday and that's what was upsetting them. Losing on saturday night fever series split right up one short adam. Go right ahead yeah. I don't want to harp too much on the negatives because i understand the kansas city series was very frustrating. I was very frustrated by that because Christie we use. We should be beating teams like this even though i do give the royals a lot of credit and they are up coming. I think they're in a similar position. Maybe not parallel. But they're close to how the blue jays our position. The royals are going to be good for quite some time. Then i don't see them conquering the division this year but they can certainly challenge for years to come but then again the white sox hurt probably going to be pretty good too but regardless it's one of those situations where the narrative has been flipped right. How often in the offseason did we talk about pitching. How often did in the offseason were. We concerned with pitching. Pitching's going to be the bane of this team and now it's it's kind of like it's not that bad you know. The things could be better. I want to give robbie ray a lot of credit. But it certainly wasn't his best outing either even though he did get out of a couple of jams..

Kentucky's 'Cocaine Bear' reportedly will be subject of Universal Pictures movie with Elizabeth Banks
"There's a movie coming out called Cocaine Bear. And if the title sounds bizarre, it's nothing compared to what the story is actually about. So you might know who Elizabeth Banks is. She was in the hunger games, and she's been in a bunch of other movies, too. She is directing this movie called Cocaine Bear. Now, if you heard of a movie called Cooking there, you probably think it's on SciFi Channel alongside shark, NATO or movies like that Cocaine bear is actually a true story. It's a thriller based on back in 1985, a drug smuggler named Andrew Thornton. Dropped a duffel bag filled with £70 of Coke from his plane over Georgia on the way back from a drug run to Colombia. So he went down. Got the drugs. He's flying back. He found out that this plane was flying too heavy, so he had to push the cocaine off the flight. And when he did it landed in the woods. And I guess ah Bear found it much and ate the cocaine. No and died. Oh, no, but it's even weirder. So he was a former narcotics cop who started smuggling so he went to the dark side and the run that is in the movie is took place on September 11th Weird 1985. He dropped because it was too heavy for the plane. Some time after the Georgia dump. This guy tried to jump out of the plane as well. But as he was trying to jump out of the plane, he got caught in his parachute and fell like a stone landing in some guy's driveway and Knoxville, Tennessee. He died on impact. The plane crashed 60 miles away in North Carolina when his body was discovered he was wearing a bulletproof vest. Gucci loafers, night vision goggles. He had 15 million worth of Coke, 4500 and cash, gold, Krugerrands knives and two pistols. Wow. Holy crap. The body of the Bear was discovered three months later, along with 40 open plastic containers and cocaine residue. They think the bear ate the cocaine. And there's the end of the bear. And that's your
Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny is sentenced in Moscow to 3½ years in jail
"The last several weeks we've been talking about Alexei of all need russia and anti corruption activist. Opposition leader general thornton flattery. Putin side last august navalny was poisoned. He was nearly killed by putin's goons. He had to germany for treatment but decided to come back to moscow A few weeks ago where he was immediately arrested there were big protests over the weekend know today a russian court sentenced need to an additional two and a half years in prison for what was essentially a parole violation You know that this verdict is a joke because you know some of these alleged parole violations happened when vanni was recovering. Germany from being poisoned Near the end of the trial in the ball and denounce putin and said he will go down in history as vladimir the poisoner underpants the The recent east. That is the poison us against vol. Knee was reportedly put on his underwear. That's how they apply to him so as we were preparing to record hundreds of of riot. Police have filled up red square and other places in central moscow. Tony blinken. the secretary of state has called for nevada's immediate. and unconditional. release ben. This seems like a a big change in terms of how putin is dealing with navan. The this trial was like big and it was public Previously russian authorities hadn't punished to develop nearly a severely. He'd gotten house arrest. He'd gotten sure sentences but you know the thinking then seemed to be they didn't wanna martyr him Now he may be locked up for several years. I'm sure that biden's national security team is like debating all of this as we speak. What do you think. The range of options are here to respond. And like what are you. What do you recommend they do. Well you know. I think the sense Again is a human tragedy nevada other. He knew he knew the risks is taking and he may have wanted to force the issue And he's proven the massive support he has and i think this will only increase the support You know because people see that the unfairness and corruption of of this of this ruling. I think for biden again. It's related to what we said that he can't there's no action he can take right now. That's going to force russia to release alexi of only what he can do is shine. A spotlight never stopped talking about alexey navalny every single time that anything comes up with russia election of all these case should be front and center. The world's attention needs to stay on his case every single day that he's in prison. I think more importantly because people can talk about sanctions. But we've mentioned this on the show. Before what has alexei navalny really honed. In on that has resonated the russian public it is vladimir putin's corruption that video showed of this billion dollar palace that putin clearly felt like he got caught because he's been denying it and now they they tried some saying. Oh no it's my hotel when it's pretty obviously bodmer putin's billion dollar house that he goes to hang out and and i think what joe biden can do. In the biden administration is continued. The work that alexi only was doing an revealing vladimir putin's corruption in spotlighting that corruption in high leading for people. Just how much money this is worth. And where his money is and how his money flows through the financial

The Swedish Secret to Happy, Productive Work Days
"There's yet another scandinavian term. Making the trending rounds lately. This one has been around in some circles for a while. There even used to cafe in manhattan by this name that went to a few times. It's called fica f. i a and it's basically the swedish word for a coffee break but in practice means so much more quoting courts. The word fica is used both as a noun and a verb and is derived from the swedish word for coffey. A national obsession for the world's third largest coffee drinking nation unlike the american style. Caffeine jolt the swedish coffee break is a moment to literally leave work behind taken first around ten. Am and then at three pm. It's not a strategy for multitasking or for fitting in another mini meeting. It's a chance to relax in the company colleagues. The longstanding swedish social ritual doesn't necessarily even have to involve coffee. the key is to pause your day and quote. You can have your coffee or tea. Whatever your pleasure. And ideally you'd pair your beverage with a fresh baked good but the main point is to take a real actual break from work lars lund. Who owned that chain of fika coffee shops here in new york city told courts that taking a fica break two or three times a day makes them more productive and number of studies have backed this up. According again in two thousand ten grant thornton study found that swedish workers were the least stressed worldwide. Perhaps in part because we companies are experimenting with the six hour work day and made fica mandatory and even though only one percent of swedish employees work overtime according to the latest oecd better life index. They're not any less productive linkoping. university professor. Rebecca adult suard has studied the history of swedish social rituals and says breaks like fica may actually boost productivity studies. Show that people who take a break from the work don't do less. It's actually the opposite. Efficiency at work can benefit from these kinds of get togethers. She writes on her university blog. Her observations support a two thousand fourteen stanford university work productivity study that argues for capping the work week at fifty hours maximum and quotes and nyaka yano. The general design manager at moody says she noticed that swedish workers are exceptionally good at switching between relaxation and focus and within office space is the fact that the break is taken. Together across hierarchies putting all that aside for a few minutes can really help break down barriers and encourage healthy forms of bonding among colleagues. When i read about fika. I realized that i've kind of set my schedule up this way without meaning to i take a mid morning break to have a snack and coffee and pull myself away from the endless feeds and e mails. I'd been staring at all morning. And then i take another no screen break in the afternoon. Once this podcast goes up. of course. i'm not in an office. Space chatting with co workers and always manage to take both of those breaks every day. But that's the goal. And on the days that i do. There is a noticeable difference in my energy focus and overall contentment levels. Now i just need to get better about my baked goods game if you want to dive deeper into fica. There's a few books out there. One that kept popping up for me is actually a recipe book but it also includes a lot of information about the custom in how to adopt it in your own life. it's called fica. The art of the swedish coffee break by annaborough bonus and johanna pinball and the official sweden youtube account also produced a six part series on fica back in two thousand sixteen that you can watch to learn more about it links to both of those in the show notes

It's just a lot of back and forth. I wouldn't say there's been a lot of confirmation on anything honestly like we're hearing two sides arguing with one another. What essentially happened. Is the players boycotted and delayed matches for blast pro remind you this was like a four hundred k event like this is a very large event that they're doing the senate Potentially causing some long term damage with blast and some of their partners right. There's like a rumor that there is a bbc deal on the table and the voice comes. Were a big selling point. You know that could be jeopardizing that deal.

It was one of those situations where it feels like, oh, like with Saddam who he was going to trade too and everyone else was like, oh, you know, we'll give you Brian get hello. Hello my boss. Okay, like I feel like it's one of those situations where it's again. The Bruins worked out they want they want a cup after trading fill out and they got you know the cap space, but you also could have birth. Another two or three younger players that could have factored into the next ten years of his team if it was somewhere else. So again, it wasn't the the most devastating trade. I guess you could say wage history, but you could have done a lot better considering what talent you have there and Joe Thornton in terms of what's funny though at the time. That was the devastating trade cuz they were terrible and then they bought him down again like they were they was funny. Well, they were good in the Years leading up to that year. They they were pretty good in that time leading up. You know, the phone number raycroft and they they were genuinely pretty good and then Thornton trade happens they completely bottom out and I think at the time it was devastating. Yes. I mean you you wonder about an alternative reality in the Bruins Universe where they get Ryan Getzlaf and they have get a first-round pick but let's just say they've gets lots. Okay, you've gets off and Patrice Bergeron, you know, just do you log You go out and get Savard. I mean I don't I think you still get Chara maybe not Savard but probably still Savard. So and then we're just David krejci fit in the mix. Like I think it's a very cool thing to think about Harry also is interesting. I mean if you get Corey Perry, I mean that's just another scoring Winger. I mean Harry ended up being a fifty goal scorer like so long. I think it's so fascinating to think about those two because I mean Perry and gets lost in their Prime were top 10 players in the NHL. I mean, yeah, I mean like Elite of a leap off. They just kind of got stuck out there in Anaheim and those it's.
"Riverdale road is an eleven mile stretch of narrow highway between the denver suburbs of thornton and brighton. colorado like much of the denver area. The road is the very definition of wide open. Space greenfield's dusty farms bisected by two lane highway though farm houses dot the landscape every now and then. You likely won't see another living soul as you travel down the pavement. Even under a blue sky the road makes realize how very alone you are but at night riverdale road comes alive. It's known for being a place of shadows. Ghosts and demons rumors include to ghost cars at a spectral jogger who was killed in a collision. But it isn't these small spirits that gave riverdale road that title of the most haunted road in america. It's something far bigger and a bit more flammable. Sophie didn't know how long she'd been driving at some point during her cruise down riverdale road time had lost all sense of meaning. Her body was going through the motions of driving but her brain was quiet. She liked the isolation of at all. Sometimes imagining she was in a completely different world. There were no other cars in sight. Fields of weeds sprouted on the side of the highway. The sun dip down just below the horizon and the crooning of ella fitzgerald drown out the sound of her. Tires churning on the pavement. The route started to move from straight to curving. She's slowly let her attention come back to her driving not fully ready to let go of the beautiful emptiness in her mind. She held onto the steering wheel loosely and subject sunglasses onto the top of her head. It was nearing dusk. Sophie flicked on the headlights and her breath immediately caught. There was a victorian manor sitting in the middle of the street. Her mind struggled to make sense of what she was seeing but her foot slammed on the brake hard. The car halted hundred body jerk forward but the seat belt held her back some of the pulled up the parking brake with their heart pounding her chest. She closed her eyes and breathed deeply forcing her heart rate to slow down when she felt that she was under control. She opened her eyes again. Slowly soapy couldn't understand what she was seeing. The highway just stopped right at the house. A small porch. She knew she wasn't lost her. Gps said so. She was just heading to a friend's house just off the route but the old house looked like it had been standing there for at least one hundred years. It didn't make any sense. She knew she should probably stay in the car and find another route. Turning around would have been past. There wasn't enough space for her to go around the manor but the site was so strange some improbable that she couldn't help herself. She had to know if she was dreaming. Sophie got out of the car and approach the house. The white would of the door and window. Frames was split and fading cracks in the glass. Bread like spider webs. A small porch around the structure had several missing floorboards as she walked closer. Her brain told you to let alone to go back to the car but her body felt differently. She climbed up the steps. The house groaned as though it didn't want company but so knocked on the door anyway and waited for a response. She didn't expect one much he also didn't want scare anyone. She just wanted to peer inside eight only for a moment but nobody responded she gently push the door open. It moved to jar with a sigh. Is it the whole house was breathing. This made her more nervous as much as the space call to her. She didn't like how alive it felt. Houses didn't have souls. She shook off the thought she was making too much of things she should just go in so be placed her hand and the cracked white paint of the door that nudged it open the rest of the way based on the outsides condition she expected dust mold and maybe pieces of the seeming hanging by a thread but the inside was completely different
The Cider-Sipping, Mitten-Wearing Guide To 2020 Holiday Movies
"Guys it's my d-. I work with amy on the bobby bones show. I'm a head writer and producer over there and also have a podcast in my own called movie. Mike's movie podcast or all. I do is talk about movies. I explore movie topics. i do. Movie reviews and sometimes bring on actors and directors to talk about their movies. So what i wanted to bring to. This episode is my holiday watching movie guide so i have five different categories with five different movies. You can add to your watching playlists. I know it's only november. But i feel like we've pretty much gone straight into christmas holiday mode right now so these are some great movies to go ahead and put on your list in the first category. Let's go with the favorite old school classic. And i'm to have to give it to the original. Og christmas movie. A christmas story from nineteen eighty-three. It's a movie. Probably all grew up watching and at this point we can kind of just have it on in the background and it just gives us that christmas feeling. They're just so many classic moments in classic quotes from this. A christmas story also had the eighty nine percent rating on rotten tomatoes. It's not available to stream anywhere right now but if you want to rent it. It's on amazon for three ninety nine. And then if you have cable subscription service you can usually catch it on pbs or stream. It their on demand. And i feel like when it comes to having a classic. You can't go wrong with the christmas story. Only i didn't say fudge. I said the word the big one. The queen mother of dirty words dash dash dash next up. I had the category of the best modern classics. So i feel like this is a movie been around long enough but it's still relatively new and it's a movie now. That actually came out seventeen years ago. So i feel like it's so far stood the test of time and i don't really seeing any point to where this movie will not be a part of my christmas and if you haven't seen it at this point well i don't know what you're waiting for. I don't know where you've been in the movie. I'm talking about is l. It has eighty four percent rating on rotten tomatoes. It's currently not available to watch anywhere for free but you can read it on amazon for three ninety nine and if you happen to have a stars direct tv subscription you can watch it there. And the thing. I love about this movie that everybody i talked you kind of has their own favourite part of the movie. My favorite part is when buddy the elvis. I leaving to go find his dad and he's saying goodbye to everybody to hope you find your dad. Thanks in our wall. All right the next category is the unconventional christmas movie. I think every year people had a debate on what is an isn't a christmas movie. Several different movies kind of fit into this category. But one i feel that kinda gets left out in the discussion. Every year is harry potter. And the sorcerer's stone now all throughout the harry potter series. I feel like christmas is a pretty big part of it. And not only that. But i feel like christmas scenes. In harry potter are just some of the most magnificently done christmas. Any christmas movie. And i don't know why they get left out of that conversation. The bad thing about the harry potter movies is they are pretty much taken off of any kind of streaming service and you can really only rent them on amazon for three ninety nine but the first one does have eighty one percent rating on rotten tomatoes. If you haven't seen it yet. And i know overall christmas is pretty small. Part of the entire franchise. But harry potter at one point does get the visibility cloak as a christmas gift and therefore i'm dubbing get a christmas movie christmas happy christmas next category. I wanna do favorite rated r. movies. So this is christmas louise for adults so kids. If you're listening you can't watch these movies and parents. I feel like these were made for. Maybe some of us. Who don't necessarily enjoy christmas movies. And just want something to make you laugh. That just has a little bit of christmas in it. Because i know sometimes christmas movies get a little bit cheesy and my all time. Favorite rated r. christmas movie is bad. Santa it literally makes me laugh out loud. And i know it's incredibly rajini incredibly inappropriate. But i love billy bob thornton and even in the crudeness and the rudeness of this movie i do feel like it has a lot of heart and if he can get through the dirty jokes and the bad language you do find a pretty nice christmas story here and bad. Santa has a seventy eight percent rating on rotten tomatoes. And as of right now you would have to pay to ninety nine to streaming on amazon. But i know once it gets closer to christmas. It has popped up on netflix. Maybe check for it. There later was gonna make some sandwiches. I could make you one before you leave. Okay maybe some sandwiches harshest. You want the usual amount. Just whatever you think. Okay right in the last category. I want to get to is a favourite new christmas movie. And i'm gonna go with the holiday. Would you can watch now on net flicks and a little bit of a warning. It is kind of raunchy and crude. Just like the bad santa movie but if you're into movies like bridesmaids or the hangover i feel like it's kind of in that category so it's emma roberts and luke bracy who is australia and he's kind of like the kmart version of chris hemsworth and they come up with this plan to be each other's dates for only the holidays. So let's be only time they ever get together so it starts at christmas goes through all the holidays in the united states and then ends up back at christmas and if you guessed at home that they ended up developing feelings for each other throughout this plane to be each other's holiday. Will you guessed correctly but again. That doesn't spoil. The movie is basically in the trailer. And it's basically what every kind of cheesy romantic comedy. Christmas movie plot is about. But i think overall this movie just makes you kind of turn your brain off and enjoy a nice holiday movie. And isn't that what we all need right now. All right. that's your holiday movie guide if you enjoyed that segment and want to hear more about movies to check out my podcast movie. Mike's movie podcast. Just search movie mike.

How Voice Tech Podcast's Carl Robinson Got Started In Voice
"So Carl. Comey how you got started invoice? What was your first experience? The voice device in? How did he interested in voice technology? So. I found voice few years ago while I was doing my data science master's degree in. Paris France has a two year cost studying machine learning and saw looking around at different fields that interested me decide. I would work in after the after I graduated house okay. And traction studying robotics, the Voice of course, and also different fields that involve the human in someway I call it the interaction element of things I ended up doing an internship. At a laboratory could come on voice emotion transformation as it basically means I was creating machine learning model that would accept recording of human speech and then transform its characteristics so that it would output a new file of the person speaking with the emotion in the voice changed in some way. So it would sound more angry or happier or whatever you would like. This is fantastic. First introduction for me into the world of voice allowed me to me a lot of people who specialised in voice technology and really started a spot, my nation, and this was exactly around the time when you know I'm an Alexa and be smart speakers really taking off as well. So I could see that was a real opportunity in the industry to to work in that field as well, and so this is this is what really got me into voice surfaced of all. I think the first voice interface I us apart from the. Toys R., US a child and we can all think back to the eighty s when there was some kind of voice interfaces But. In recent times I think that the the most the first voice choice I used was on my mobile phone. Many people had an android phone. So I started issuing a few voice set his and commands to it was paying more attention to the space immediately went out and ordered an Amazon Echo. DOT started playing with that set up my smart home a couple of light switches asking questions hooked it up to Jesus, so I could ask her music tracks and things like that and it grew from that. Started using my phone in the car as people do I start buying the Google devices. So how? A range of different ecosystems in the house now but that was my first experience basically. So those experiences on my phone and on the the smart because really convince me of the potential voice in has been a fan of the idea of Ambien computing that the star Trek Vision. Well, you just walk into a room and asked what we want and none of this late word business. You just have thought ask for it and keep and computer response and I see this is a big step towards that vision as not the full it's not the full vision. Of course, there's going to be other modalities introduced, but really sparked my. Imagination and it really made me made me think that this is the technology that has the most potential to advance the quickest in the coming years thinking about my career and what I wanted to work on I was thinking strongly about the by Thornton VR. Still has a long way to go before it really takes off in the mainstream but this voice thing this really looks like it's got a lot of attention on the short term and I think it was right in in that prediction as well because looking the proliferation of smart because. So many searches conducted over voice today. It's definitely it's definitely a trend that's going to stick. The voice tech podcast is a must listen. So listeners go listen to it. You have over seventy episodes right now carl and I enjoyed being a guest in episode sixty one. Please tell listeners more about your podcast. Thanks Roger, I really appreciate that. Yeah, like signed. Before as you mentioned, we've done over seventy episodes. Now I can mention a few that really stick in my mind deals with a personal favor. Actually I the thing I liked to buy our conversations that it was very well-structured. You've really got into the the details of the the bixby system as well. I left that conversation failing some impressed. So in in. The the way that you guys have done over there, but we've had lots of conversations like that on there that was podcast to me. Personally, it's been a wonderful experience for personal branding reasons expanded my network hugely by doing. So I've spoken to lots of people that I would've never had the opportunity to just be to otherwise. So it's been, it's been a wonderful experience,
Consumer Spending Rose in August, but Incomes Pose Hurdle for U.S. Recovery
"The stock market enters a new pandemic quarter with a sense of cockiness say Hubris. I'm David Brancaccio I about four percent fewer people signed up for unemployment benefits over the last week still that number eight, hundred, thirty, seven, thousand remained stubbornly high with about half the jobs lost in the early months of pandemic still not made back. We also have news this morning on our spending Thursdays we get a briefing from Diane swonk the Chief Economist at the tax and advisory Firm Grant Thornton. One of the great teachers on this subject Good Morning Good Morning. I was looking at the new consumer spending figures it covers August looks a little won-. Yeah. We saw him come in point seven percent pace that's down from one point, one percent and almost six percent in June July and under one point one we're really losing momentum there and after adjusting for inflation which really interesting in the consumer spending as we did see a nice pickup in spending on services people finally returning to hospitals you up on all those elective surgeries they deferred during. lockdowns and also spending on some travel picking up what we didn't see and what was really devastating was we saw drop in spending in food stores in August from July, and that was really closely tied to the laps in that six hundred a week chocolate to unemployment insurance. Much of that was going to the very basics of food and shelter, and we know that food insecurity has already gone her record high and that's GonNa compound unless we get some additional aid to people unemployment. And jobs to people the Big September jobs report. The last one will get before the presidential election comes out tomorrow. What's your view. Well we're looking for jobs to increase by about seven hundred and fifty thousand in the private sector, and that's a pretty big slowdown from what we saw in the month of August. What's important about that these big numbers we still want to see these big numbers. There are some seasonal quirks data, and one of the most notable one is religion hospitality where we're still down four point, four, million jobs many of the lay offs that you usually see in of Labor Day in the leisure and hospitality sector will not occur. So that'll help us out during the month, but that's not exactly something you WanNa put your money on given we're still four point four, million jobs down in that sector. Economist. Diane swonk at Grant Thornton. Thank you so much.
"thornton" Discussed on CXMH
"Yeah, we have I don't know we did not go to the lake that's for sure. That is okay. I feel like we are finding. Are distorted rhythm in this new semester in what this is looking like and I think I usually say that for like the first four weeks of every semester whenever we do these intros where I'm like we're finding our rhythm for like a month. Especially, right now, in the midst of everything, we are really are like it's it's been changing with having our kids doing online school and each week the teachers have been learning more and adapting and improving and just thinking of different ways to continue to connect with the kids and so that's been so awesome and we're just trying to kind of shifted adjusted in adapt with them and so on. So that's an interesting but. I mean we've been. By and I've also been trying to weave in some of the wisdom of our guest this week in. Some of her tips and advice in thoughts in. Just, a good work does should we? Bit about plus. Yeah absolutely. We were super excited to have Dr Amber Thornton Comeback on she actually came on the show years and years ago, which sounds weird to say how because sometimes after get how long that the show has existed but she came on back in twenty seventeen to talk about something kind of entirely different. But we brought her on this time because she has shifted kind of what she focuses on professionally and she has created a whole podcast, milligram and yeah. Called Balanced Working Mama where she helps working moms figure out. Okay. How am I really being balanced in my life kind of this holistic approach? How do I maintain being healthy in all the various ways that we talk about being healthy right and so it was really awesome to have her back on even if obviously you're not working mom like I am not right I still love the episode just hearing her wisdom. There's plenty that we could all apply but then also of I'm married to working mom or a lot of us no other working moms things like that and so. I think it was. It was it was great. Yeah. Yeah. I wholeheartedly agree I think it. There were a lot of takeaways from it.

Mercedes who again today script wrote us a little introduction. So without further ado, let's get into says. Introduction. She writes I love Pittsburgh. It's my home city, and in my humble opinion, it's one of the top two best cities on the planet. It's a place full of life and culture and history, but it's so small unleash that it tends to fly beneath the radar for most I grew up loving the city and knowing that it has a lot to offer when it comes artistic expression August Wilson, famously loved the city his home city so much that he created that connick Pittsburgh cycle it's an amazing city so to me, it just makes sense that if ghosts were real, they'd want to come back to hang out in the burgh I love for a little longer guests I love that you really heartfelt starts episode Mercedes. I think I need to go to Pittsburgh have you been now? Road trip I how far far could we drive from here? Yeah. I don't think it's far I think yeah I don't know. No I think. We'll take our stark reserves. Okay. So the history of the Pittsburgh playhouse. By Mercedes okay. The historic Pittsburgh playhouse originally on craft and was not so much a theater as it was a collection of buildings that were brought and then turned into theatrical spaces. The first of these was acquired in nineteen, thirty four and was formerly a German Social Club. This building was bought as a wedding present by Richard. Row for his wife Helen Wayne their stories actually very cute. So Richard. Fell in love with Helen when he first saw her perform in New York, his family was super rich and well-known Spanish factors in Pittsburgh. So he bought the location for Helen to give her a nice space to act in Pittsburgh. He basically did this so that they could live there together and she would feel fulfilled even though she wasn't a Big New York City Act trix actress. On that's so cute. Matching someone just give. The building. Just so that you can. Live in the and like feel like you're a big time. Yeah. I get jobs. Yes. Okay. So that their names are Helen and Richard Richard and So. With that, the Pittsburgh Civic playhouse was formed not just by Richard and Helen. It was a group of artists making up the company but like the rows. Oh but like the rows were moneybags. playhouses. Next purchase was an adjacent house to act as a lobby for what was then known as the Roth eater. The first performance in this theater and lobby space was in nineteen, thirty four. The playhouse was fairly popular in the thirties and forties staging productions of Noel Coward's private lives in Thornton wilders. Then new our town during his l.. Then new. Oh. I would like to, I. would like to live in a world where. Still felt new. During this, the playhouses signature leading lady was, of course, none other than Helen Wayne row, which seems like a pretty sweet deal and I'm jealous of her whole situation getting a sugar daddy to basically launch her acting career. Mercedes. SPEAK ON A. So the stage also housed musicals and featured a little known dancer choreographer just months before he would get his big break on Broadway you WanNa. Take a guess Fred Astaire. Close. Close. Oh Who Does skin I don't another dig her come on. It's obvious. Gene, Kelly. of. Yeah. Gosh. Okay. But I've heard he's like Not Nice well, did he like demand rehearsals like over and over again tell people bleeding? Yeah something wacko on in singing in the rain like I've brought up seeing in the rain on this podcast before which is funny. Okay. So that's NEAT I didn't know Gene Kelly was from. Pittsburgh neither that means Jim Kelly Okay Mall from the Burgh. What a gorgeous dancer what? Does little tap into. All right. Moving on. The third building that was additives Hodgepodge of theaters was formerly the tree of life synagogue the congregation moved to Squirrel Hill. I have to stop. I have to stop Squirrel Hill. Sounds like that sounds like a horrifying like like scary movie of chipmunks and squirrels like like. or or Blake dream. Yes my partner like squirrels. Okay. the congregation moved to Scroll Hill in nineteen fifty, one in this space was acquired by the playhouse making up their largest theater space. The Rock wealthier underneath the theater was a restaurant known as the playhouse restaurant. A former ballroom turned ice cream parlor. Cute. Wow. They're out here like setting up a small town. Lot of they got a restaurant. So there's three theaters. All connecting. So like spaces. Yeah. It was the playhouse restaurant, which is a ballroom to ice cream parlor. Got It. So you want got it another local Pittsburgh or to get their star at the playhouse before becoming a household name was one Shirley. Jones. I don't know that is. Listeners You do but I hope you do if you don't Google it we will. Profess, she performed in the playoffs. Many times Okay. Walmer says love that fact but. I feel like we're GONNA waking up in like feel stupid or something. Yeah. Well, another Pittsburgh native who has a history at the playhouse, oh? My Gosh is Jeff. Goldblum. We love chuckles literally Jeff. Goldblum pits. Pittsburgh playhouse butter boop. Out by I love. Jeff. Jacob Blue, that's the best I can I gotta wash him. Once when I go on benders watching Jeff Videos I can get that I can get that down pat?

Goldblum. FLASH TATTOOS DID YOU. Know I didn't. But I've seen I've seen him Like. In an interview talking about people getting tattoos of him. And it's so funny. It's like I feel like we should be our next to you remember when we had just left London and somewhat some artists like installed this giant Jeff Goldblum statue on like Phil Lot on the lawn outside the the bridge theater setting somewhere around there and they had this like Gorgeous Gold Statue of Jeff Goldblum laying down like he doesn't Dross Park Oh.

Go slight see the me calm your show. Can take over. So. The theater began to struggle financially and was acquired by point bark. Point Park University in nineteen sixty eight the playhouse continued to operate now mostly for students for many years this way this wasn't a perfect fit though the buildings of the playhouse were old and not originally intended for theater. They were also much farther from Point Park's main downtown campus making the playhouse more trouble for the school than it was worth in late two, thousand, eighteen, the old Pittsburgh playhouse buildings crafts avenue were demolished as the spirit of the playhouse was moved to a new home. Oh, that's a bummer. It's like cool history. The new Pittsburgh playhouse complex is located on Forbes and fourth, and while it may not have as many ghosts lingering as the old buildings had it is at the very least a space that was designed and intended to be used for theatre. Sad. Sad. Okay. Well, moving on things the hunting section of the Pittsburgh playhouse. We gotta get my my spooky vocal but We also Halloween town reference. Have you sir. Familiar. Halloween town. Longtime ago. I know. Collectively, Judge Lino, she was not raised on D. Calms and it shows in times like this. There's a wonderful line that Debbie Reynolds has when she corrects her grandson on how to make a ghost noise like make it like this out of a ghost sign it was one of the daughters anyway she's like she's like she says something about it being like like lower and more melancholic
Powell announces new Fed approach to inflation that could keep rates lower for longer
"In his speech at the annual Jackson Hole Symposium. This morning fed chair Jay Powell given official update to the Fed's policy on inflation targeting. It was one of. The most significant revamps in their policy strategy since twenty twelve having deliberated on these changes for the past year and a half the Fed is seeking to average out there inflation target of two percent over the long term in other words in periods where inflation consistently is under two percent, the federal structure monetary policy to a of the two percent threshold to average it out and meet their target over. Time since setting the inflation target a two percent in twenty twelve, the Fed has only met that a few times in the past eight years averaging about one point, four percent pal today had said quote the persistent undershoot of inflation from our two percent longer run objective is cause for concern end quote averaging out there inflation targeting would help them avoid quote adverse cycle of ever lower inflation and inflation. Expectations and quote an economy that thrives on credit and its growth. A deflationary environment causes the debt burden to increase in real terms. Low inflation is also a direct contributor to low rates which when an economic downturn occurs significantly hampers the central banks is ability to support the economy through a recessionary period. New statement explicitly acknowledged the challenge posed by the proximity of interest rates to the effective lower bound. By, reducing our scope to support the economy by cutting interest rates a lower bound increases, downward risks to employment and inflation regard to the employment side of our mandate. Our revised statement emphasizes that maximum employment is a broad based and inclusive goal. This change reflects our appreciation for the benefits of a strong labor market particularly for many in low and moderate income communities. In other words, the shift in policy is meant to expand strong labor market gains in order to reach more workers in light of how the US economic expansion prior to the pandemic benefited minorities and women in finding jobs and the civil unrest that is accepted the summer all in all racial be lower for longer much longer allowing the economy to run hot yields on long bonds took a brief dive just minutes before Powell's address, but they took back. Up as the Fed chair laid out his lower for longer vision, a steepening yield curve makes sense in the context of the Fed's new inflation targeting regime since investors demand a higher yield in order to receive payment in currency that may be worth less as I'm recording this the thirty year flirts with a one point five percent threshold. The question I'm wondering is could a breach of that key level be a catalyst for price action inequities as well as gold,

"Back and read it in. Reader's digest an article about the seal team's navy seal teams. And then I was. You know off on my next my next evolution. The Navy seals in Vietnam were originally not engaged in combat. There were only about two hundred fifty during the course of the war and they were there to carry out covert operations and to train south Vietnamese commandos. They didn't live on American bases. They embedded with local people. Michael Thornton was from the West Coast. Seal Team Thomas. Norris was from the east coast seal team so although they both been on previous tours and had experienced firefights they had never met until June of nineteen seventy two in DNA after most American personnel had left and the United States decided to resume bombing from the air to try unsuccessfully to push the north back during the Easter offensive. The only people still on the ground were some Army and Marine Special Forces and the Navy Seals. They'd been living with the Vietnamese people as I mentioned earlier. Running intelligence gathering operations realized that we all we were still. Platoon is made up of fourteen people to officers and twelve enlisted and you divided into two seven man squads and you would either operators a seven man squad or sometimes one or two or three people or go out on missions and then we would run. We would penetrate into areas where nobody else would go. We Ran Into the base areas of the Vietnam we went to places where big army units go And we Ran Our operations. We're unconventional warfare is a A different type of of battle. It's not online tanks and military units facing each other we fought an underhanded dirty Ruthless type of a war and we were usually always outnumbered. Our main goal was intelligence to give us information on where the BBC were where they're Heavy weapons units were them were positions. Were where they are stripe dishes where whether manpower was angle target those positions. That's what we went after and we penetrated areas. We're nobody else we'd go and I guess it'd be sat on thought about it afterwards. You'd probably why do we do that? You know What are we doing here but you just wipe it out of your mind and you go on and you gather you almost six cents when you run operations you feel things almost before they happen I it's hard to explain to somebody. That's never been there what it's like to work in an area where you're outnumbered. I mean every time and you can you you. You can be not make it just like that so you depend on your fellow member and your and your team to do what they're supposed to. I mean they're your family. There were like my father. Evaluate your family's everything and they were my family there. You know and good war stinks. There's nothing good about it. But you know the whole thing is shoot or them and we were a projected in areas where nobody else would go the reason why he was called free fire zones in these fires on a free fire zone because it was controlled completely by the NBA. And the Cong the North Vietnamese army. And the insurgent communist forces in the South well when Mike Thornton arrived for his new tour of duty he was assigned to join Tom. Norris's team which was just fine with him. Lieutenant Norris was well known and trusted because of the heroic mission. He'd lead six months earlier. My boss was Commander Chaib -ly just the kind of guy you'd give your life for He's just he was just top notch and he was at a military advisor to commander of our Vietnamese navy counterpart the Vietnamese. Seal team's The Vietnamese commander requested that we send a unit up to the quality at naval base which had in north Vietnamese hands to determine whether or not that base could be taken back by a mission. Run by the Vietnamese navy The Americans wanted to know if there was any any aircraft or missile positions. Being put in there Dave called me down to deeply called me down to ask me if I would take a group up there. I looked at him and he looked at me and I today. I can tell you what's up there with them without going. He looked and he said. I know they're asking if we will do it. Will you take a team and I said okay so I went back to our base? Camp was and But but on your basic everybody. We're going North Said pick the best to Vietnamese. You can and I picked to Vietnamese at work with me on previous tours down in the south now we had a Vietnamese officer which we could really be a great guy he got in the boat next the four he did so the opposite it was chosen. He just wasn't as confident as he should have been. This later comes into play when we went into where we went. Into Course Mike didn't know anything about this And I put another very solid guy on boat that went up with us to insert us. That's the team that we picked so we were in essence a five man team and I knew what Tom us in for. You know in Tommy disgusted and but I would never say no anyway. I mean I've always felt if you have a chance to. I know what I'd been through before. We have a chance to be there to help. Save somebody else's life or or him saved my life or vice versa. Maybe I may make a decision under pressure that I know this season. I've made so Tommy you and going to go and I said Yes sir. They set out on their mission carefully. Planned out by Lieutenant Norris. They were taken up in what was called a Vietnamese cement junk boat when they reached a certain location. They were to switch into smaller rubber boats and using radio communications with the ship. Offshore they would vector in while the problem started developing early on. We a little late in getting started the river. The water was Slowed US up. We weren't we didn't make headway. We thought we could The vessels of American vessels that were supposed to vector us. Were not in a position to do so. When we got to the area we were going into so we couldn't get the radar vectors The boat captain assured me he could get us into where we were supposed to be so we ran on his His reckoning unfortunately we're we were north of the river and but he did factor in. We got little rubber boats and went in as if we were. Were going to where we should. We didn't know we were we. Were not where we're supposed to be. We got on the pitch but We we made our You GotTa took over in and we got off and swimming to shore across the beach the beach and started our patrol in a direction that we would have normally gone. Had we been vector anywhere? We're supposed to be and at night In a heavily controlled area. You move very slowly you don't. It's not like you're just walking into wherever you want to go. It's it's it's very slow moving. You stopped listen to what's around. You take a lot of time to become accustomed to the area. The sounds of the area. And what's what it is. What areas like where you're in and Mike was back at the back of the line. I was up towards the front and we stop and slow down. Mike had a A starlight scope Which of the night vision device would come up to me. Say NASTY NASTY NASTY North. He says he's a nasty. I don't see the walk at river which means we're not where we're supposed to be so he should have been able to pick it up in the starlight scope and I said Okay and he kind of look at me and I know you were. We're supposed to be and he'd go back live off. We go with patrols some more and now every time we'd stop you let me know that you know. Hey Dumdum we're not what we're supposed to be star soon. The things that we're seeing you see bunkers and bonfires gone and all these guys through heavy heavy north Vietnamese units. There was a bunker complexes there like I've never seen before. There's no way they could have built. We knew me out of Vietnam or this. This was incredible so We're just moving on through all the intelligence and Mike. I think he's thinking what kind of not my with here but Like being as big as he is now. I I can pass revision AMIS because I'm small body size is such that they don't see my nose. My facial side I can pretty much get away with it. There is no way Mike. Impasse for Vietnamese. I mean Mike trying to make himself as small as possible. Tom Norris's plan at that. Point was to gather what intelligence they could head back to their boat before daylight and come back in again the next night to the right location. Fortunately took us a little bit longer to get to where we need to go to extract and we thought so daylight coming.
The Great Alaska Quake of 1964
"This book. This is chance is a book about a seismic event like our current pandemic except that it was an actual seismic event. Tell us about the earthquake that hit Alaska on March twenty seventh nineteen sixty four. It was Good Friday evening and this was the largest quake that's ever been recorded in. North America is still the second largest one in the world I think even more disturbingly and almost with more experience it lasted for four and a half minutes so is incredibly destructive quake but it was also there. Was this kind of psychic disorientation. That came along with it. Especially in the city of Anchorage which was really Alaska's biggest city by far at that time of just seeing this community that people were still very much in the process of building and inventing just kind of being turned literally upside down in some spots. Was the epicenter in Anchorage proper? No the was. It was close anchorage. It was just east of Anchorage under the sea and so there were a lot of communities that were affected around Alaska. I chose to focus the book on Anchorage because you know like I said it was really a place that was just beginning to get on. Its feet that sort of represented the promise of what Alaska could be felt great pride and itself but also real insecurity. Quake came in a very precarious moment for the community. When it was really just starting to feel like it had something to offer the rest of America and to be struck like this in such a seemingly random and very cruel way I think really affected the self image of the community. I mean Alaska is still kind of a mystery to many of US lower continental Americans. What was it like at the time? The Greater Anchorage area was. It was the city of one hundred thousand people in nineteen sixty four which is almost half of the state's population and really the only community that outside probably would have deigned to even call a city and it had a fourteen storey hotel but that was by far the biggest building. It had kind of an a new upscale neighborhood of kind of modernist homes it had JC PENNEY BUILDING. Which was a really really big deal that some big national American retailer would come build an Alaska and so again it was just really kind of finding its way you know straining to make itself a real place when this earthquake happened and it was it was feeling very insecure about its future because it didn't quite know that after this boom of statehood that it had found any way to sustain itself. It was still this feeling that this place that they were building this arm of society. They decided to build way up. In the corner of the world might be an experiment that just might not work out and then the ground literally shakes underneath them getting at those very fragile new foundations. I mean you. You chose in your book to focus really on the impact that the quake had on the people of Alaska. Why did you decide to approach the story? In that way. The way that I came into the story was through the story of this radio broadcaster. Genie chance who is sort of a part time radio reporter and working mother in Anchorage and who by a quirk of luck but also her own persistence? Wind up being this voice on the air and the three days after the quake that was really able to help the city co here in in a very disorienting dislocating moment bypassing information over the air passing personal messages from people looking for their family members. And once you find a like that. Who's really this node for? People coming together after an event like this. You start to see how all these individual stories of the earthquake. All of these people who are tossed around separately were really kind of joined in a shared experience. You use the Thornton Wilder. Play our town as a kind of framework. Can you explain how you did not why you made that decision? A big threat of the story. Is this Community Theater Group in Anchorage she was doing? Our town was interrupted by the quake that weekend. Think I'd probably read the play in in high school and and you know not proud to admit it but just you know didn't really take it seriously. I just started. Had this impression of it as this hokey simplistic ed piece of Americana. And when I started reading the play again I realized that in some ways it's it's themes are the themes of the story of earthquake to this idea that you know we don't recognize the preciousness or the fragility of our daily lives until we're thrown outside of it till we get some other perspective on it and the other weird thing that happened was is that you know there's this character in the play the stage manager who is standing on stage with the characters and telling you basically how they all die. The future and I realized that because I was spending so much time. Trying to recount the story of these three days but I was doing it from more than half a century later. I had that same kind of omniscience about these characters and it was very painful to watch people in the course of these three days struggling with these issues of life and death knowing that you know in one case month later this fellow would die in a plane crash or this guy was going to have a stroke and you know he was expecting to retire but he but he'd be dead six weeks later more and more. The book became kind of mimicking the structure and the way that our town is narrated which I think took it to some kind of unconventional places. But it really did seem like the way that this story should be told and you the author then become the stage manager. Yeah in a way. It's not you know we don't walk around and daily life knowing the future right but in a weird way this project put me in that position and the stage manager was really the only other person that I'd seen have that same experience. So yeah you know for the most part the book is this sort of intimate retailing about people in the in the real time of those three days after the quake but I do come in in the middle of the book as as a character. Who's just in a in a basement with all of genie? Chances Forty some odd boxes of her life just digging through trying to piece together that that map of her life.

Because the practicality is awesome an ingenious and it's about bringing the most practical solutions to the M- the most difficult and deprived areas of the world. So you tell me about your experiences. Yeah so we. We even a couple of years ago to Nepal and were asked to do a Picasso women who had been suffering From prolapse is so they were living living up the top of the mountain and semi the women during pregnancy or after giving was still working in such horrific circumstances like carrying water of rice or whatever to feed their children and because of that the strain on the bodies caused them to have horrific prolapse as we were talking about out to. How practical action did the most amazing thing in that they installed a pulley system? said the women didn't have to suffer the the people in the village. Eligible system is so simple right now and then it's about just chucking ipads at the problem. Feed Foudre what can we do. It's a mechanical kind of thing that people can manage themselves. The pretty system is something that can be managed by the people of the village and they can figure it goes wrong and all of this. What we practical? That will help people's lives day. Hey Today on what looks like a small level bashing on a massive level. It means that you'll leave doesn't fall out and you have a miscarriage there. Yeah you get to grow up knowing you. You're allowing them.

Their funding is much funded by the government so they don't necessarily gotten raises aggressively antenna fundraising the other charities. But that's changing and they really. We need our support. It's about enabling communities to become more self sufficient so it's not like hey good save people that's going to help them to help themselves education and tools for me it was The biggest Killa bigger than malaria in that region is was smoke people.

I've three in one on the way and then I have two more step grandchildren's Oh okay yeah awesome congratulations on that and if you could just take a minute here to hit my listeners with a little bit about your background wells born and raised in the hills of south Carolina I had a great father I follow had a sixth grade education but he was in the army for thirty seven to forty seven at my mom was is a great mother she she gave is love the gave his love and direction and daddy was just Kinda he was a man that everybody always respect and in my father was a man that ah always asked what do you still work from father after all these years and they say we do go calls Because the the your father treats everybody the same and everybody comes first father for yeah that's Awesome Mike and Obviously you've had some amazing experiences in your life what did the experience of becoming a father how old were you when you first became a dad and had becoming a dad kind of change your perspective on life was actually just turned money you know you have you have a lot of stuff going there in a way of responsibility you know and my daughter was the eldest and sweetheart I give her mother my first wife all the credit the world of calls without her judgment in her love they never would have made it were early or today yeah so you know so many times heroes like yourself they rarely speak about their experience this is in combat but your story obviously it's pretty well documented what when did your kids I find out about like your heroin actions that earned the medal of honor around Asia they find out and have they read the buck by honor bound they've they have they've they've read the book they they were See that was nineteen seventy three and Mikey was not even eighteen months in June was a little bit about two and a half years so I thought it would be easy for them to try to understand that age but I've had my kids at Naga rations and all other sub where they get a idea of the type of people that we work with all the time so it's it's they've had the great I stay ability to meet all these the people who we've I've learnt care about and think about why silty is such a great organizations we have yeah and I you know I've heard you speak about your father's philosophy there I if it's going to be if it's going to be it's up to me I hope I got that right there's something to that along those lines he has anywhere and the flavor of the day is to blame other people for our problems the government or parents or politicians or whatever so that you kind of is still at philosophy is your children yes I did and we all have real have demons we all have is that we need to go but you know you have to you know take care of your day is just what I talked all these kids that are siltation today you know if you don't WanNa help yourself way I can help you so so face your demons a move forward and everybody has Davis you could be a a young lady he had spent raped or somebody's bad car or or video many demons you know but this you have to face those Davidson Luke Ford with them yeah yeah very well said Mike what about as far as a disciplinarian obviously is a navy seal.

"This guy's got a probably have to talk down to us a little bit. We're gonna pretend we're smart, but he is a senior fellow at the von mises institute. So I don't know if he can. Are several mouse, MRs we don't know he might be able to answer that force. He's an economist with the Mesa's institute, and the author of the book the skyscraper curse. Dr Mark Mark Thornton. Mark Thornton is with us. Now, dr. Yes, go. It's great to be with you today. Thank you very much. So I have always been fascinated by the skyscraper curse. And it is. I've never really looked into it. Like, you did your book is absolutely fascinating. Can you explain what the theory is? I. Well, it basic theory is that when a record setting skyscraper is built anywhere in the world. By the time. It's completed in ready to open the world is going to be experiencing an economic crisis. And so the curse is the economic crisis. That is associated with the building of a record setting skyscraper. Now if I'm not mistaken. It was the Woolworth building around nineteen. What was it fourteen fifteen something like that? That did not did does not fall into that category. And that was the world's first real kind of skyscraper. Well, you know, we've been building to learn taller for about one hundred and fifty years and the skyscraper curse occurred earlier during the panic of nineteen o seven, but as the war building was being built, and it was being redesigned to go even higher to set the record. And then when it set the record in nineteen thirteen there was no economic crisis that followed and so. So the original architect of the skyscraper curse real estate analyst named Andrew Lawrence. He called the Woolworth building a mistake of the skyscraper curse. But when I went in and looked at the detailed statistics what I found is that the US economy was going into a severe recession of Justice. The war was being prepared to be opened in early nineteen fourteen. But what Andrew Lawrence forgot or just neglected was the fact that World War One was starting in Europe. And all of the major powers of the world. We're getting ready for a war and they were buying steel. They were buying green. They were buying weapons were buying materials. And so that reactivated the US economy and brought us out of what was one of the worst downturns in US economic history. Okay. So. Give me some because I think it's fascinating. The Chrysler building is completed there's actually two skyscrapers Donald Trump holds one of them. Now by Wall Street and the the Chrysler building completed we have the crash of twenty nine the Empire State buildings completed a year later in one thousand nine hundred thirty and we go into the depression. In. What was it nineteen seventy the World Trade Center? That's right. We were on a tremendous record breaking a business cycle, boom. During the nineteen sixties economists from the Keynesian school thought that they had been able to do away with the business cycle in business cycle courses were being taken out of the curriculum going into nineteen seventy as the world trade tower one and two were being built and rising in New York City soon to be followed by the Sears tower in Chicago. And what happened was just as all this grandeur and glory for the Keynesians was reaching the pinnacle, the US went into an economic crisis. We had the stagflation of nineteen seventy through nineteen eighty two. We had the US going off the gold standard things were so. Bad. We had wage and price controls being imposed by Richard Nixon nineteen seventy-one just as the trade towers were coming to a new record heights. And so that was a a spectacular. Menacing sort of example of why we shouldn't trust Keynesian economics. So before we get into what you know, what you see on the horizon what I really appreciated was the theory on why this is happening. Now, there's a there's another theory out there that like for instance, the Sears tower whenever you build a tower, and I I think again Woolworth was the exception to this. Whenever you whenever they build a record tower that company is at its peak. It's all downhill from from there, and you kind of can understand that because you're thinking, okay. Well, they're era Ghent now, but way, you look at the skyscraper. And the things that you say. Why this happens makes total sense? So can you explain your theory on why this is true? Why it happens? Well, you know, the people who build these buildings they may be irrigable in the arrogance may have risen as a result of the position that they've risen to. But basically the underlying cause of all this is cheap credit, low interest rates artificially, low interest rates from the central Bank or our Federal Reserve and those low interest rates in the short run caused people to invest more invested long-term projects invested in big spectacular projects because you know, the credit is cheap. They're making profits. Everybody seems to be doing well. And so the fed can create a rosy economic scenario in the short run, but what it's really doing this causing people to make the wrong investments in the economy to go beyond what would other wise be economically rational. And so the number one single. The number one price in any economy is the interest rate, and when the fed cooks the books, and reduces that interest rate for economic political or whatever reason they do it for if they do it too long, and too far ultimately they're going to create malinvestment or bad investments like record-setting skyscrapers, which otherwise would never have been built. So it's interesting it's not necessarily because it's the example of hubris or is certainly not the cause of the economic trouble is a symptom of something it's of somebody else's hubris. The the central banks that's interest. Dr Mark Thornton is gonna continue with us here in just a second the skyscraper curse. Now. Let's look at where we are today. And how does this play a role in? What does it say for our future? We'll do that in one minute..
