Jennifer Lawrence Confronts Anderson Cooper

"You guys been missing Jennifer Lawrence because I definitely have we haven't seen her much recently, but she is back. She hasn't changed a bit. She still holds nothing back. In fact, she's talking about that infamous fall at the Oscars and why is set off of nasty little battle between her and Anderson Cooper listen to what Jennifer said on Heather McMahon's absolutely not podcast. I'm sorry but interesting Coober I saw him on. CNN. Lee. Three days later saying like what she'd obviously the ball and it was so devastated this horrific humiliation to me that like took away like I don't know ever have a chance to give a speech that again I saw him at a Christmas party and I let him know my friend told me that they was. But he apologized and I think I think we're good friends now. Do you think I wanted to fall getting Oscar but I remember when I led with was have you ever tried to walk upstairs in a ball gown? Right. So then how do you know like I with that? He apologized. Oh my gosh. Okay. I gotta go straight. Ahead some pesky reporters. To write stories sometimes, it's so weird. I haven't been in therapy about it for years now anyway, what was the question? is you see this particular person which I know loves you so much Is and you got to run into him or her at a party. What would you WanNa do would you talk to her? Would you say something? Oh my God I feel like I've envisioned this interaction first of all shot to Heather McMahon because I love her she is hilarious hilarious. I am obsessed with her so I'm happy for her that she got J. Lo on her podcast I feel like. Jay Jay said Jay Lop. I said. On kidding. I wouldn't mess up but. I will say I've had visions of maybe approaching certain people that write things and I think it really depends on the alcohol consumption. Cooper I right. I would go to Anderson Cooper because he's a respectable journalist, he made a nasty remark. You know you're getting an apology out of him but some of these other bitches are a little nuts. So I don't know I don't WanNa fuel anymore fire. So it depends it depends one hundred percent i. think that's a very good point you have to know who you're dealing with because if it's somebody who really doesn't like you and you get that five, a day could very easily turn the story around and write a whole other article saying crazy Morgan or crazy. Kisha. Came up in screen that man apart. But the other thing they if they're already writing crazy thing, they can write it regardless you scream are not. So. That's also true. I would say you've got to follow your gut and I completely agree with more again it depends on how many drinks of the consumed evening, how you're going to approach because you know sometimes yeah. You know there's certain like the GENITA- Crown, it may go let. Me Go left. It also depends on who's with you right. If my husband was with me see, my husband gets much more fired up than I do and I know you might find that surprising but he would be the one that would literally do me to say something I think you should say something you should call that did out and. I'm usually the one that's like, no, no, no. No let's just let it calm down. But if I'm getting like talked up into it, then I might yeah, pay south. Yeah versus if I have someone that's like, it's not worth the babe just to let's just go over here I'll be like. All right. You GotTa have your backup backup. Yeah. You got to have the right height man. If you're wanting to do it, it's got to be someone that's GonNa go up with you and have your back no matter what comes out of your mouth but. It's also good in these situations with somebody who's not necessarily your friend to be as composed as possible but I think when you're so heated already. Interaction, never goes as well as you want it to. and. All. Thank you. Scream at them. Yeah. I'm GonNa, say real quick. I think also even better way to handle this have a good woman someone who could do your dirty work for you. So you don't have to be the one that goes says us that this Lella you can have them do it and then your hands clean.

Early voting on hold in western Kansas county after ballots improperly labeled

"Kansas County was forced to suspend in person advanced voting for three days. After a ballot misprint incorrectly identified a Kansas Senate race as a U. S. Senate contest. Ellis County plans to resume in person voting today with extended hours after corrected ballots arrived Wednesday. The incorrect ballots labeled the Kansas 40th Senate race as the U. S Senate race. Names of the candidates were correct about 4000 of the incorrect ballots were also sent to mail in voters. Election officials say the incorrect ballots will be counted.

Pandemic power-grabs: autocrats seize Covid opportunism

"At the beginning of this year, protests were roiling India. For one hundred days, hundreds of thousands of Indians raged against proposed changes to citizenship laws that would discriminate against Muslims. It was the biggest campaign of civil resistance in decades. But the protests swiftly died out after local curfews were imposed in response to covid nineteen curfews that were particularly strict in mostly Muslim neighborhoods. Too many these new it seemed like a calculated move by the Hindu nationalist Prime Minister Narendra Modi quashing dissent under the cover of the pandemic we'll muddy don't believe. In. A televised address to the nation on Tuesday, he underscored the dangers of the virus and called for renewed vigilance as the country heads into it's festival season. Eve. The bobbly. Deployed but behind the scenes, there's growing evidence that he's been using the crisis for his own partisan ends. Last month citing the risk of covid nineteen spreading within India's parliament. He announced measures that severely hampered lawmakers questioning the government the opposition walked out allowing this mody to Ram through twenty five bills in three days. These kinds of authoritarian tactics are on the rise around the world. The think tank Freedom House counts eighty countries where the quality of democracy and respect for human rights have deteriorated this year. The pandemic has been terrible not only for the human body, but also for the body politic Robert Gassed economists foreign editor. With everyone's attention on covid nineteen, what a crats and would be autocrats in many parts of the world have figured out that they can do all kinds of bad things safe in the knowledge that the rest of the world will barely notice let alone object and where are the countries where this is the most worrying it's a completely global phenomenon. A one end you've got China, which was a dictatorship before the pandemic but has really cracked in Hong Kong the human rights abuses against the we have gotten worse this year we're finding a lot of places is that the pandemic gives governments very reasonable cause for tightening down on on civil liberties for reasons of public health. But. What then happens is that many of them have taken it further than that. So it's not just that they are restricting public gatherings to stop people spreading the virus. They're also using those rules to prevent demonstrations and protests against their own terrible policies and what does that kind of repression look like in practice So you take in Uganda for example, it was an opposition member of parliament called Francis. Zach. Who noticed that? He's constituents we're going hungry because of the recession caused by nineteen. So he's the give them some help you know packages of rice and sugar just to get them through the hard times. Government had said that only the government was allowed to give out food and if anyone else tried it the government said they do incompetently, the crowds would gather and that would spread the virus. So the president actually said, you know we will charge you with murder if you try to hand out food aid when you don't the government will from. The opposition member of parliament. He was very careful to do it in a way that wasn't going to spread the virus. do packages and have them delivered individually to people's doors on on the backs of motorcycles the day off the he did it the police came to his home. He says jumped the fence while he was showering through minivan dragged him off, put them in prison tortured. Him are unbelievably horribly and they said to him while doing doing it we can do anything we want to you because no one can come out and protest because there will look down because of the pandemic. And that's something we're hearing. All over the. World. And it seems in a lot of cases though that it it's these leaders are doubling down on the kinds of populist attitudes and policies that put them in power in the first place. That's exactly right now, one of the strange things about a panic about a contagious disease, and this is something we can see from academic work that's been done on prior pandemics is that people become a bit less rational and a bit more xenophobic if your political persona is someone who is going to stand Up to external threats, then pandemic is a great time to double down on that. So you see Narendra Modi is government in India has always named Muslims for many of the problems in India, and now they're blaming the most super spreaders of the virus in Bulgaria seeing Hauch lockdowns on Romany neighborhoods and others are Turkeys religious authorities blaming gay people first spreading the virus Malaysian officials are blaming migrant workers, some of whom have been caned and deported. So you're seeing lots of this stuff it's a strangely Popular response when people get and I suppose pandemic conditions make it somewhat easier for for autographs for governments to control message. Well absolutely you're seeing a significant increase in the number of restrictions on the press and it's usually done in the name of public health. So people will pass a law against spreading fake news about the virus, which would, of course be be dangerous and they used that to criminalise any criticism of the government's response to the virus, which is completely different things. So you think all over the place. So in Zimbabwe anyone who disseminates wall, they called false information that impedes the. Response to the virus can get up to twenty years in prison and they're arresting people for things like trying to visit in hospital opposition activists who've been been by the ruling party in. El. Salvador they purged seventy journalists and relaunched a state TV outlet on the the president said I. I'm am watching a very balanced news cost with grin and then adds i. don't know what the opposition will see because of course, what they will see is something that's actually pro ruling party. But look innocence global freedom was slipping autocracy in general sense was rising. I, mean how much of this? Can we definitively pin on the pandemic? You'll right global freedom has been declining since probably just about before the financial crisis of two thousand and seven to eight. So this represents a an acceleration of pre existing trend and with each individual violation of human rights you can never say I mean, it's it's like weather and climate change. You can never say this incident could not have happened without the pandemic I mean would would China's rulers still have inflicted such horrors on on the weekends this year without Covid nineteen with Thailand's King of grabbed nearly absolute powers. would. Would Egypt executed fifteen political prisoners in a single weekend this month maybe they would have done those things but these these outrages would surely have faced stronger opposition. If the whole world's attention had been focused on the pandemic, which is tossing everybody's lives in chaos and sucking up all the attention is much easier to get away with these things without the rest of the world looking at what you're doing. So we can be pretty confident that his a significant factor in why things have gone worse this year.

Ways Smart People Make Bad Decisions

"We're GONNA jump straight into this discussion. The first thing that smart people do that results ultimately in a bad decision. Is Not making a decision at all. We'll call this inaction. Better term where a better mental model for this. Is Inertia. The idea here is that we continue doing whatever it is that we've always done. We don't make a decision because we've already made a good decision in our own minds, and perhaps we did make a good decision and we're relying on that historically good decision to carry us through indefinitely. And there's obviously a lot of problems with a Nursia. There's a lot of problems with not making more good decisions. One of the most obvious problems is that as things change round you. Of course, new responses to those changes is necessary. The good decision that you made three days ago could. Even, in comparison to today's situation, be a bad decision if you were to make it again and yet. We continue complying with our previously made decisions as if they are slated in gold, they're always going to be good decisions and this is Not, only a fallacy, but it's incredibly dangerous because that inertia. Is Self reinforcing by the time we've built a habit and we continuously invest in. Continuing that habit it's very hard. This is why I'm calling it inertia. Not only is it the unlikeliness to act? The unlikely decision making points you're not going to come up with you know come out of nowhere with a new decision unless you're confronted with this. But it's also self reinforcing because the more times we take that same action without any adverse responses in other words, everything seems to be going fine. The more we reinforce in our own mental Schema that that decision and that ongoing inertia is a good thing. As a quick aside, I'm going to provide kind of an antidote to this I want you to evaluate the decisions especially, the big ones the ones that take up a lot of your time evaluate those decisions on an ongoing basis imagine that you had to make that decision again. For example, I might ask myself this weekend if I was faced with the opportunity to start a new podcast today. Would start one. And it's important to recognize that not all of these questions have obvious answers and they're only providing a batch a backdrop for conversation. Obviously starting a podcast today is different than starting a podcast five years ago and things have changed but if I could snap my fingers and changed my reality. In a particular way. What would I change specifically as it relates to previously made decisions if I could make a different decision today, what would it be? So once again, the first thing on our list of four things, four ways that smart people make bad decisions is inertia. The second thing that causes smart people very smart people very intelligent and aware and intentional people like the people who listen to this podcast. The second way that you are likely to make a is by focusing on the outcome. In her incredible book. Thinking in bets and on the interview that she did with me here on developer t any duke calls this resulting. The idea of resulting is that you're focusing on the outcomes of your decisions rather than. The way that the decision itself was made. And there's a critical difference here and it's hard to see when you're reviewing decision. It's intuitive to imagine that the way we determine whether decision was good or bad is based on what happens as a result of that decision. But we're missing out on a critical component of the equation. We imagine that we have all of the factors necessary to evaluate the quality of the decision by looking at the outcomes, but we're discounting or perhaps entirely ordering the role of many other factors that we don't have control over we can call all of these factors together randomness. Randomness. In this case is not true randomness. There are certainly other kind of decision makers or stakeholders or whatever you WANNA call them actors in our little scene of a decision of a given decision. But we don't necessarily have control over them. So we might as well think about those factors as random there in the environment that we choose to operate in but we don't necessarily have control over those factors.

Supreme Court allows Pennsylvania mail-in ballots to be counted after Election Day

"Last night the show we told you about how Democrats were celebrating the Supreme Court decision not to block a ruling by the Pennsylvania State Supreme. Court. Decision that would allow absentee ballots to be counted in that state even if they arrive up to three days after election. Tonight some experts are warning that if you look closely, there's a reason to worry about what four of the conservative justices on the spring quarter up to. So there were four who did want to take up the case they wanted to take up the challenge. They did not explain why they did. There was opinion issued but boxes millhauser points out quote in their briefs. The GOP hones in on the word legislator arguing that only Pennsylvania state legislature may set the state's rules for choosing presidential electors not the state Supreme Court. Okay so they're saying look don't listen to our state Supreme Court Supreme Court of the United States you guys can overrule them, and if the descending justices were considering accepting that argument, then they're basically toying with the idea that federal courts can just step in and tell states how to interpret their own laws, their own state constitutions plus it's not clear. We've heard the end of this particular case millhauser points out quote. The GOP may be able to raise this issue again after Amy Coney Berties confirmed potentially securing court order requiring states like Pennsylvania to toss out an unknown number of ballots that arrive after election day the election is closed that could be enough to change the result. Those four conservative justices basically laid out an invitation to come back and challenge those ballots when the court is even more favorable to Republicans than it is now when they have a five four majority. One of the people who who filed the supreme. Court on behalf of Pennsylvania is State's Attorney General Josh. Shapiro and he joins me now. All right. This is. The actual federal civil procedure questions here are actually so complicated and I don't think I. Did a great job explaining just now to be honest as I read it. So let's let's just sort of set it up. You have a state constitution in Pennsylvania guarantees people right to vote. Correct. Correct. And There was a lawsuit that said look. The current rules for counting absentee ballots, which which would not count ones that were mailed in good faith and sent before the election day and happened to come in a few days after that's denying people their right to vote and the supreme. Court said of your state said, that's correct under Pennsylvania State Constitution, we have to count those votes is that correct? Yeah that's exactly right. I mean look. Boil this down. This is a matter of state law. There was interpreted by the highest court in our state, our state Supreme Court, and our State Supreme Court said very clearly that you know basically when in doubt err on the side of inclusion or in franchise -ment. Unfortunately, what you have are repeated attacks against our election laws here in Pennsylvania by Donald, trump in his enablers trying to make it harder for people to vote trying to make it easier for ballads to be discarded, and so I've been in court time and time again, defending the right for legal eligible votes to be counted and to make sure the Pennsylvanians can be heard I think Donald Trump is afraid of candidly is having all legal eligible votes in Pennsylvania County because. I think he'll come out on the short end of that stick at the ballot box just as he has in the courthouses where we've beat him, he's over threes got a big fat over on his record and I. Think if he continues down this track here, you know really late in the fourth quarter to try and make it harder for people to vote he'll continue to lose in court. So you this appeal, right? So the State Supreme Court says look yes but. The State Constitution Pennsylvania. Says we we want people to vote for right to vote. We're going to try to interpret this in a way that maximizes legitimate votes you beginning counted not thrown on technicalities. The Republican Party of your state doesn't like this opinion that and appeal it and they asked the Supreme Court to step in and blocked that ruling. And it looks like four conservative justices were interested in hearing that argument. Does that were you all? Well. It does in the sense that it kind of flies in the face of of something going to nerd out on you here for a second flies in the face of something known as the pursell doctrine which ineffective says that federal courts should exercise extreme caution. Before interfering with state election law and that extreme caution gets even more extreme. The closer you get to an election we're not only fourteen days away from election day. We're already voting here in Pennsylvania more than a million Pennsylvanians have already voted. So the idea that the Supreme Court of the United States would step on step in on what is clearly. A state constitutional law question interpreting state law is a bit troublesome. Nevertheless, they didn't muster the votes necessary to stop or block Pennsylvania election law,

How Trump's signature issues are backfiring with the voters he needs to win

How Trump's signature issues are backfiring with the voters he needs to win

"Are officially two weeks from the end of voting and the twenty twenty election. We don't say election to anymore because voters across the country are already mailing ballots and heading to the polls today was the first day of. Early voting in the battleground state of Wisconsin you can tell from the footage it was chilly, and yet we saw long lines at busy polling places. We're also just forty eight hours from the final big set piece event of the campaign. The last presidential debate which will go on with the rule change. The candidates microphones will be muted while their opponent gives an initial two minute answer to each topic. Of course, they made that necessary change because the president is so compulsively antisocial that he cannot abide by just the normal give and take of conversation and debate the debate. This Thursday is hugely important for president trump because when you're far down the polls as he appears to be a chance to change the trajectory. That said it is also, of course, serious risk because we saw what happened last time. I'm not here to call out his lies everybody knows he's a liar but you I. I want to make sure. I. I WanNa make your accident. Can you let them finish her now? He doesn't know how to do that T- as. You pick. It. Be Surprised. By the wrong night at the wrong times and you agreed with Sanders. Valid is no manifesto. Mr Number two just lost the left number two. You just lost the left. You agreed with Bernie Sanders on a plan. If -solutely. Forgotten. How horrible that was my God. I put it out. My Mary. Well, that did not go over. Well, not only pulling immediately show the president lost the debate. If you look at, say the five thirty polling average that first debate on September twenty ninth and trump's coronavirus diagnosis, which, of course happened just a few days. Later they're kind of an inflection point after which he loses three more points. But here's the craziest thing during the turning the debate into this unwatchable cringe inducing boorish display actually arguably helped donald trump because keeping the focus on how just outrageously unlikable the president is is better than focusing on his actual policy positions as compared to Joe. Biden because he is even further behind on the issues. I, mean keep in mind. This is a very divided country right now we know that we know that polarization pretty much rules everything around us, and so a lot of the time when you ask voters about any specific issue, the results basically converge on whether or not you like Donald Trump right? And that is why this new pulling out today from New York, times colleges so striking. They asked voters about a whole bunch of issues. Some that are major news stories right now like for instance, another covert rescue package on that the polling shows an incredible national consensus in favor of a new two trillion dollar stimulus. Now, that comes as we learned today that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told the White House not to agree we deal was speaker Nancy Pelosi out the election because he's concerned about dividing his Republican conference. Voters overwhelmingly support a mask mandate fifty, nine to thirty, nine percent after watching the president who of course discounted the masks for months and made fun of people wore them fall ill with the corona virus and spend three days in the hospital. The Obama Administration, signature, legislative achievement, the affordable care act, which, of course. Trump back. Lawsuit is attempting to destroy right now in the Spring Gordon arguments week after election day that also comes out ahead of fifty five to forty. As does Joe Biden's current platform his plan to add a public health insurance option it would auto enroll people into it if they didn't have insurance and that has a whopping sixty, seven percent of voter support again. Twenty, five percent oppose those are big big spreads then. There are the issues that are less front of mine right now or at least getting less covers the climate crisis, for example. It's not exactly the top issue among national political talkers. The moment were really either the campaigns, and that's somewhat understandable the pandemic and the resulting economic devastation and yet. When you ask voters if they think a Biden administration should invest two trillion dollars in clean energy and other ways to help reduce the effects of climate change and reduce carbon emissions by a margin of forty points. They see s forty points on these signature tent pole. Climate Plan of the behind campaign in a country polarized is remarkable. Remember in the past debates, it was very clear that both trump and pence thought that fracking was going to be one of their best issues. It was like their their secret weapon I mean they were just talking of love fracking Americans love fracking. Let's FRAC every last Frankel Incheon this fracking country and it even put Joe Biden Kamla Harrison the defensive promising over and over that they book well, we don't have a thing with we're not gonna Ban fracking everyone knows fracking obviously track. Well, when it comes down to it, it's not even true. It's a wash. Voters are evenly split on one of the trump campaign's best issues thing they think is their wedge. No the fracking debate is actually largely about one crucial state Pennsylvania, where natural gases they may traders she but guess what a majority of registered voters in Pennsylvania oppose fracking according to CBS new Newspoll over the summer. So Donald Trump's ongoing negligent malignant incompetent managing the pandemic the disastrous conditions that the country eight million people fall into poverty and trump's personal odious nece are obviously the big things driving much of this campaign.

The Supreme Court Allows More Time For Pennsylvania's Mail In Voting

"The Supreme Court allows extra time for Pennsylvania's mail in ballots by Marc Sherman and Mark Levy. Washington. The Supreme Court will allow Pennsylvania to count mailed in ballots received up to three days after the November third election rejecting a Republican plea in the presidential battleground state. The justices divided four four on Monday an outcome that upholds a state Supreme Court ruling that required county election officials to receive and count mailed in ballots that arrive up until November sixth. Even if they don't have a clear postmark as long as there is not proof it was mailed after the polls closed Republicans including President Donald Trump's campaign have opposed such an extension arguing that it violates federal law that sets Election Day as the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November and that such a decision constitutionally belongs to lawmakers not the courts. The State Republican Party Chairman Lawrence Tavis said the party disagrees with the decision and noting the four four decision. It only underscores the importance of having a full supreme court as soon as possible to be clear. The Supreme Court decided not to grant stay which does not mean the actions of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court would withstand a legal challenge to their judicial overreach. Should the court hear the case tape said? Nancy Patty. Mills Chairwoman of the Pennsylvania Democratic Party accused Republicans of trying to sow confusion and disenfranchise eligible voters. This is a significant victory for Pennsylvania voters. Mills said in a statement, the Democratic majority on the state's High Court had cited warnings that postal service delays could invalidate numbers of ballots and surging demand for mail-in ballots during the coronavirus pandemic to invoke the power used previously by the state's courts to extend election deadlines during a disaster. Chief Justice John Roberts joined with the three liberal justices to reject Pennsylvania Republicans call for the court to block the State Court ruling. Justices Samuel Alito Neal Gorsuch Brett. Cavanaugh and Clarence Thomas would have required the state to stop accepting absentee ballots when the polls close on November third. There were no opinions accompanying the order. So it is impossible to say what motivated either group of justices the conservative justices have been reluctant to allow court quarter changes to voting rules close to an election. The court also is weighing a similar issue from Wisconsin but in that case, the ruling being challenged comes from a federal appeals court and the Democrats who are asking the justices to step in. Most states make election day the deadline, but eighteen states half of which backed trump the twenty sixteen election have a post election day deadline with nearly a million votes already cast in Pennsylvania, we support the court's decision not to meddle in our already working system Pennsylvania's Attorney General Democrat Josh Shapiro said in a statement. On, a separate track Republicans in the State House have pressed Governor Tom Wolfe a Democrat to agree to eleventh-hour legislation to eliminate or limit the three days under the court's order. The case is one of many partisan battles being fought in the state legislature and the courts primarily over a male in voting. In Pennsylvania amid concerns that a presidential election result will hang in limbo for days on a drawn out vote count in the battleground state. And Pennsylvania the State Democratic Party and a liberal group the Pennsylvania Alliance for retired Americans had salt an extension of the election day deadline to count mailed ballots. About two point eight, million mail in ballots requested and approximately nine hundred thousand returned democratic registered voters are requesting mail ballots at a nearly three to one ratio over Republicans, and it's September seventeenth ruling the divided state Supreme Court said ballots must be postmarked by the time polls close and be received by county election boards at five pm on November six, three days after the November third election it also said that ballots lacking clear postmark could be counted unless there was evidence that they were mailed after the polls closed.

"three day" Discussed on P&L With Pimm Fox and Lisa Abramowicz

"Podcasts as well as at Bloomberg dot dot com we are seeing the repo rate that got a lot of people all bent out of shape a couple days ago come down further as New York fed engages third day of its Repo facility trying to inject com into this basic plumbing of the financial system here joining us. Tom Kennedy Global Head of macro and fixed income. Tom Strategy at J. P. Morgan Private Bank here in our Bloomberg Interactive Brokers Studios Tom. I'm wondering if we could start talking about the takeaways from his full episode. Does this mean that the Federal Federal Reserve allowed its balance sheet. Just get two small as it allowed to shrink with quantitative tightening. Yes yes all right so why why yeah yeah the amount of liquidity that a a very dynamic economy needs is impossible to know inexact real time you can see it and see indicators years of a certain amount of excess reserves which I'm going to call the quantity for the sake of this discussion that you need for the economy to function the analogy is that I use in my own personal life when I was in college didn't have a job wasn't really spending much. My checking account could have relatively small balance in it. It was very small. Trust DOC fest forward. You have a family you have a job. You have debt you have more liability needs and you need to have more cashing checking checking account same analogy can be applied add to the US economy. This economy has grown remarkably over the last ten years and the REPO market signals. This week are telling us about one point. Three trillion in reserves is just not enough liquidity and I. I'm fully aware of the technical issues of the supply and demand that happened over the last couple of weeks but I think we can for for most people out there smooth through that Adam say. There's just not enough liquidity in the system. Despite the popular belief that liquidity is awash in the system and repo markets this this week have been telling us that the Fed comes out with temporary operations. They're just putting cash and liquidity into the system they. This is a temporary fix for a permanent problem album. They are going to need eventually to have the the balance sheet continue to expand that's not. QE Just to make sure there's enough liquidity in the system shouldn't be inflationary. How do they do it. Give them a good point. They said the mechanics are the same but the objective in the end goal are different in a place where you need to make sure sure there's enough liquidity. You're injecting just enough to make sure markets. Function shouldn't be inflationary because you're just making sure you're checking account for the sake of this example has enough to meet your demands. QE is by even more bonds that are that are necessary for liquidity in any attempt to really pull your lower and stimulate late inflation different objective same mechanical implementation that needs to be done. What if the Fed decides doesn't agree with you and decides this is short term blip. We don't need to do really anything. We don't have to grow this ballet much. Repo rates will continue to remain high and this week overnight repo traded north of nine percent for period of time. I it's quite simple to realize that if you're receiving a yield on an instrument that you own let's just say it's a ten year treasury that holds a coupon of two percent and to finance that security at nine percent. Obviously that's a negative carry position and can't go on for very long so levered players system. If the Fed doesn't address this will not be able to function so the Fed currently has a one point three trillion dollars of non treasury or mortgage backed securities debt is liquidity for this purpose correct the reserves the excess reserves on the liability on the liability side is about one point three zero point three trillion dollars. How much should it be. I don't know I don't think think they know either. I think that all they're realizing is it's not enough right now and this is the this is where the art of central banking meets. What I think is perceived you've science. The economy is so dynamic. They don't know the on this on this day. We need one point four trillion. They don't know so they have to feel it. A little bit and the repo market is is sending them a signal. They don't have enough okay so the consequences are pretty diorite that we could end up with liquidity crunch. Even a downturn or some sort of seizure user levered players could get out of the water. could pull back this private debt private equity. you know all sorts of levered currency funds looking at that that right. I'm wondering on the flip side. The Federal Reserve comes out starts to buy a lot more bonds. We're just trying to manage the situation. How do they distinguish that from. I'm trying to ease financial conditions yeah the communication. There's a communication challenge with this. This hasn't been a part of their toolkit for ten years. They over the next six to eight weeks the head of the October meeting there's going to you're going to hear lots of education from them to distinguish the two and that's going to be vitally important. There is no one in the United States better position to do this than the new fed. They're going to do a great job doing it but there's there needs to be more education on this and I expect them to start that a soon as possible. Did you hear anything from chairman. Paul yesterday on that issue yeah I think he I read him saying we're going to learn a lot over the next six weeks as they tried to feel where the level of excess reserves is required and I also interpreted him as they're going to do a lot of work on how much the balance sheet needs to grow and my expectation out of yesterday's that they're. GonNa come up with announcement in October about how to start expanding the balance cheating in to meet these liquidity needs just not do. QE Just real quick given your experience at the New York Fed. Do you think that they will get it right eventually or do you think that this will remain a real problem album hundred percent confident. They're going to get it right the team there can do it. I think the art of doing this is is what's important here. They had to feel where the stress points were sure. I think it caught them by surprise quite candidly this came a lot sooner than than myself and I thought that I think they thought as well and Powell more or less admitted that yesterday but they're going to fix it and these temporary market operations are vital and they're doing them but again. It's a temporary fix. They need the permanent fix and they'll give it to us. Tom Kennedy thanks so much for joining us. Tom Kennedy's global head of macro and fixing come strategy J. P. Morgan Private Bank educating us and our listeners on the repo market doc clearly a challenge ahead for the Federal Reserve to manage that part of the yield curve.

And we also know that shonda rhimes is your hip hop moniker. That's right. I almost forgot my hip up identity. He up shonda rhimes with Z. Yup. And Sean is spelled shonda not shown up the finale of scandal the seven season final episode. The finale of entire series is called over a cliff, and that's a reference to the sort of gladiator credo of Libya pope for whom her cohorts and colleagues would go over a cliff, and that's a phrase that's often said over a cliff. You are the gladiator gladly follow you over a cliff. Heading off a cliff. I wonder whether that subconsciously the spark came from this over a cliff idea in the Bartlett White House, right? I suspected it. Yeah. I was going to say early on. You know, we've talked will at this point is like the appendix of the west wing body kind of a vestige of Oregon that. Yeah. I mean, if you want to go to the bother of cutting it out you could, but you could also just leave it. And but even so he has a moment early on just as he's waving goodbye during the cold open where his sum up of this revolutionary Mideast peace agreement. They've made is peace in our time. Right. Kind of a bummer that he's echoing Neville chamberlain's famous quote upon the signing the Munich agreement, you know, the appeasement of Hitler's Nazi party said that's his take on the deal that they've just made. I mean, it's just kind of more of the. Same from will even a casual moment. I I was wondering how you felt about that line. Yeah. I don't I don't recall, exactly. But it's more of the same. Well, I guess speaking of removing appendixes appendices appendices, we see Leo under the knife in this episode, very ER. That's what I was and between that and Donna in the hospital room. There's been a lot of ER in the west wing. I wonder if John wells felt this need to bring in more hospital scenes because ER is still this ratings powerhouse. And maybe they felt like they needed to drip, some of those juices onto the west wing to bring back I figured it was just we already bought the open. Chest cavity stuff. Why not use it a second time? Sure. Amortize it over to series, by the way, the CJ. Greg Brock dynamic is pretty fun. Who's the new White House chief of staff, that's how you about Leone. The Gary comes Chicago and unconventional choice show. I felt we were awful thirties comedy. It does make me miss Danny cannon a little bit. But I'm glad that there is someone there to have a platonic kind of sparring relation. Ship with whenever I see him on screen Sam Robards, I think when I see the two of them on screen rather. I think there could be a little. Yeah. Could have been a little romance. There unspoken. There's nothing really that suggested other than something about the two actors and how they interact I could see it. They have chemistry. They do. Yeah. I liked their back and forth. When Greg is speculating about the new White House chief of staff, and then he says well Jeepers Brock you care about Leo too. But there's a power vacuum here and your editors don't take puff pieces. And you haven't owned a typewriter since the Coolidge administration. I would never say Jeepers to would not. Yeah. You would I think she would especially when later this episode. She says well heavens to Murgatroyd, do you know, what cartoon character, and we discussed this before I'm just have dejavu all the time though. I don't know that we we have discussed this specifically. But I like that when you asked me that you almost went into the character's voice. I was really good snuggle FAS heavens to Murgatroyd.

I wanted to highlight the moment when the president Kerns to abbey and confesses that he thinks that he's the one who caused Leo's heart attack fired him. Yeah. I like that she Intuit's. That's what's on his mind. Although obviously, she doesn't know that he is in fact, fired him or ask for his resignation. She knows that that what's plaguing. What's on his mind is the idea that he's brought him into this pressure cooker of job has contributed to his health problems. Yeah. I think my favorite moment of of everything going on with the president. And Leo, you know, as he's wracked with guilt about all of this stuff. And he's trying to come to terms with what to do and wanted to replace Leo and not being able to make that call is that moment when happy says you've got to keep him out of that job.

It didn't occur to me even to Google and see I thought it was again, some sort of maybe casual racism, I don't name check him in the episode, but Turkmenistan's first ever president was a guy named supper Mora Niyajov. And here are some of the things that he brought about one he banned the use of lip synching at public concerts in two thousand five because of the negative effect on the development of musical arts. Where does he stand on tick tock? Yeah. That would probably be. Yeah. It would be blocked. The here a couple of dog related things that I really like one he banished dogs from the capital because of their unappealing odor. But the thing that Josh says about the people gnawing on bones like dogs to strengthen their teeth. That's true. Is that I watched young dogs when I was young they were given bones to gnaw on to strengthen their teeth. Those of you whose teeth of fallen out did not chew on bones. Wow. So that was his advice was that the Turkmen people should choose on bones to strengthen their teeth. I cannot believe this all real. It's all real. I mean, it just it's really a thrill to read about the stuff. He outlawed opera and ballet and circuses for being unturned like in two thousand four he said that mentioned no longer have long hair or beards. And then just some of my favorite ones. He abolished the Turkmen word for bread and replaced it with Gurbansoltan his mother's name. Hats off to this guy. Because if you can't have fun with being a monarch or ruler.

Do you know what the current child tax credit is? No, I believe it's two thousand dollars per child up from thousand I think the Trump tax plan in two thousand seventeen brought it up from thousand. Two two thousand and is there a cap on the number of children, I won't get there. So I haven't really looked into I topped out at two, and that's all she wrote. Folks.

There's a cap on it as apparent let me just warn you kids over the course of their lifetime over over. The course of the first seven years cost more than two thousand a year. This isn't as I can see if you're trying to work in angle, forget it. You're not going to turn a profit on this. Okay.

The president's going postal over this tax credit practically at appeal to seal and now may be able to talk him down. But you're going to have to move on peacekeeping. Now, josh. Toby? Hi, it's pretty sad. It's a funny moment. And I like how it's played even if it's a tough by again, I did like the moment. Yeah. When half lease like, okay, put him through turns on the speakerphone. You just get to watch Richard shifts face. As Josh dot speaking. Yeah. Steven Culp is funny in the scenes. Yeah. When I said that that I think this episode felt a little unfair to Josh one of the moments that especially felt out of character for me was when he said to the president, you know, if you want someone working out of Leo's office just shout, if you need anything he does it in a way that is sort of inelegant, and in the moment, it feels like a betrayal or something in the president reacts as if it is and to me Josh is the last person who would ever do that we've established this about him. You know, he doesn't wanna be the guy. He wants to be the guy the guy counts on I agree. Although I saw Josh the way you do even in that moment and felt that it was a particularly sensitive run nerve, president Bartlett that was seeing it otherwise, I didn't take it as an actual betrayal. I saw president Bartlett's is that he was a little bit salty about it. Right. But I took Josh at face value. The the way you would interpret him as just saying if you didn't eat anything, right? It's not. Grab rather than trying to jump into a power vacuum. Right. Yeah. Okay. I think it could've played that way too. But for me, whatever it ended up not bristled at that. But then, you know, Toby takes a run at this at a similar kind of conversation. And he does it in a much more elegant way, I think I care about his surgery, but we're fumbling the tax Bill. Our diplomatic strategy is a is a game of telephone. And these are the things were spending time on. Yeah. He makes it very good point. But there's also there's a dark and intense moment in that scene when president part listening, look this was out of the blue this..

"By the fact, that the way it's presented to us in this episode is one to me it felt like an acting award because it's Allison Janney. Like, of course, there's only one name. She's one four days. Everybody loves her. She's an amazing actor, I think it's an interesting. Choice. It was definitely interesting to be like, oh CJ is going to do it. I think putting CJ in that role is gonna make for an interesting dynamic, and I like it. But it does feel like Josh has been the deputy chief of staff this whole time and has stood in for Leo lots of times. I mean, even from the beginning of Mandy me, and she answers to that being said, they do a good job sort of buttressing the decision in the end of this episode with all the stuff that comes before it in this episode. We see Toby and Josh being completely uncoordinated the whole thing felt unfair to Josh Lyman as a character. Well, that's another one of just keep using the same word slightly silly aspect to the episode. Why don't they just discuss how this is gonna work Leo's bedridden even after things start to go initially awry when Toby and Josh have clear miscommunication about the number of children, the cap that might be put on this child tax credit. They don't sit. Okay. Listen, we gotta take five minutes and discuss how communications are going to work. And if there is a hierarchy the kind of sort of dance around the idea just continually keep making mistakes and have these miss communications and tobe even at one point goes to president Bartlett says, hey, have you thought about how we're going to deal with this? And the fact that they don't ever just hammer it out instead keep having these substantive and comic mishaps feels a little odd. And I agree with you. You know, if Leo is going to say, there's only one name, you would think it would be Josh Josh or Toby seems like a more qualified candidate or you know, Cording to what their specialties would be not that they're more competent than CJ. But you would think one of them temperamentally. I don't know if I see Toby working so well as Bartlett's chief of staff, I think it's a question of temperament in the end that lets me by that it shouldn't be Josh especially after everything that happened in season five, I think part of my reaction to that is looking. At seasons one through four Josh Lyman where yes, it makes sense. You know, he's he would be the natural successor for Leo. But after everything that happened in season five he shot himself in the foot on a few occasions. And I think he's revealed that he doesn't have the best temperament for the kind of high level diplomacy and even handedness that the chief of staff job might need. He also has a hubris, right? That could be a quick downfall in the job due respect. You never thought we get a deal, and we are going to be scraping faces off mount Rushmore. It's a news roadblock. It's so big and so out of control, and so clearly headed for a fall type situation that we've seen that in a serial fashion from Josh. So I guess what that also might disqualify him. In addition to Toby from being a great candidate yet up, and I think the choice of CJ, certainly interesting. It's a great new interesting unexpected way of the show to go. But the credibility of it all bothers me a little bit. And also the fact that. We go from this episode finding that the president can't even wrap his head around appointing..

"Talking about episode three from season six it's called third day story. It was written by our dear dear friend, Eli. It was directed by our dear one dear because he hasn't been on his often friend Christopher messiah. No. And it first aired on November third two thousand four in this episode. The White House is in chaos without Leo who suffered a heart attack at Camp, David. But before signing the Middle East peace accord, the president wants the staff to get the support of congress and the United Nations, Josh and Toby or pulling in opposite directions without a chief of staff to direct them CJ. Does the best she can to maintain some order and Donna returns to work, but she's in wheelchair and Charlie reveals that he could graduate from Georgetown. But he's putting it off because he's afraid of swimming. There is no swim test for Georgetown's graduation, by the way, there is a swim test for Cornell. Really? Yes. But my parents attended and they're fine. Fine swimmers as a result there, some notable things about this episode that I thought we could mentioned off the top one. This is the first time that Melissa FitzGerald is given a guest starring credit. That's funny. I did notice it. Yeah. I was wondering if I just hadn't noticed it before. But she's got that. Nice upfront credit. Yeah. But ago fits Armin Mueller Stahl is also given an upfront credit. But then I didn't see him in the episode and I had to go back. And he's on TV. We don't see him in person. So to speak in episode screened in screen interesting. Yeah, he got a special guest star credit for that is a Hollywood heavyweight. Another thing about this episode that is different from others is we get the title across the picture of the White House as we're entering. We don't get our trademark black screen between the previously on and the start of the episode. We get the title third day story in the bottom as opposed to. Centered over black. I don't know why that that is nor do I maybe it's just them trying out new stylistic moves, maybe they misplaced that black card. I don't know. How it all works, technically? Yeah. Somebody left in the art department closet. I just throw it over the White House. What would you think of this episode? Love it. It was fun to watch has some great. I think ally dialogue, and there's some funny stuff and lighter, and it's sort of a little bit of a respite from some of the more dramatic were even soap operatic elements of the preceding two episodes, although there's still darkness here. But I don't aspects of it struck me as silly not always in a good way. What struck you silly the CJ Josh eating contest? I think is silly like although kind of funny, and I like when she walks by the Roosevelt room, then has a second thought and comes in. And then she after taking his brownie way, she comes back again takes all the brownies. It's funny that made me laugh, but an all seems to the Genesis of it seems to be our friend is fighting for his life and here eating a Donut. I just didn't really get the. That's it. I'm challenging you to week of not eating isn't that? I don't know. It seemed maybe it's a quibble to refer to a minor comic subplot as inorganic. But it's not like, I'm not aware of CJ being a health food nut and Josh's being a chronic -ly bad eater. It just kind of came..

"Having me. Thank you. So what did you think of the idea of four-day working week? The thing that worries me? Yes. Something we talked about this on our chips. Yeah. In an earlier episode, we talked about union membership. Yeah, and and the decline in it's an how we fix. It's not fixed yet in the unions will the same kind of power they did when they were pushed him for the five day week, that was a problem.

You'll bring me down to. Wonder about businesses though you would think they just makes cold decisions based on profitability and probably and if they've got numbers that these other countries where people work fewer hours, the productivity is higher you you'd think that the be good in a full. I mean, I went into this thinking so nice idea, but how do you get over the conundrum that people are gonna wanna work less for the same amount of money. And I suppose I find Andrew revelation. He was because because you know he was looking at it north from, I want to be nice point of view, but from a hard nose business point of view, which ended up being nice and work life balance and all that and saying we can, we not productive and we could be, you know. E twenty percent more productive and have twenty percent fewer hours and the productivity. It's the same. And so you know, it's financially possible. Then I end up thinking, well, maybe the two day weekends, just a convention. I mean, you know it is the convention before that was the one day we. Yeah, it's also given thing whether one day exactly why shouldn't it become the convention the three day weekend. As reasons to be cheerful with. I'd millet Jeff Loye.

This reduces the demand for virgin timber and the deforestation of a country that has some of the lowest levels of tree cover in Europe. We have also pledged to invest the majority of our prophets into Trey planting. And reforestation helping to come back climate change and improve bio-diversity. We are already trying to do business ethically as possible, but this was the inspiration to put the final elements in place and join this amazing movement as well as to review how we make our buying decisions to ensure that we evaluate the social as well as financial impact.

"Younger women hungry for political office on the left but yeah i mean i think that that's that's certainly the case and i'll or a you know one of the things that's definitely true is if you look at the data among you know using trump's approval rating is perhaps a proxy for this particular thing what you saw within the data was that overwhelmingly the people who hated trump the most were eighteen or twenty nine year old women overwhelmingly his approval rating they're in any particular month pretty much never got above 25 percent maybe a few months it was twenty six or twenty seven but dipped as low as twenty one percent and that's far different than it is among the sixty five and older crowd where even at a low point which was the end of the year was still 40 percent among sixty five and older women so you know i think that the concentration where the energy is within the parties right now it's really among younger people that really really don't like trump and younger women in particular and that's probably going to drive what goes on and you continue to see a demographic problem for republicans right way if you're not acting people the certain gender of a certain age group then longterm you're gonna you're going to see ito people who might have been leftleaning republicans decided to be centrist leaning democrats whatever it is you know like there's a certain hurdle that i think is faced with when republicans sort of missed this kind of wave army mobile certainly point out that trump's approval rating if you go by age group is and you control for parties worst among the youngest republican than his among the oldest obviously there's timed to repair that over the long term you know politics as never stationary things tend to move but at least in the short term yeah let's start drove up your was of may be any final thoughts on the women's march in particular whether flip thought like sustained bigger smaller different from the one that happened a year ago and whether says anything about the sort of wave that we've been discussing here but perry in dc uh you know in the three days of the shutdown talking to lawmakers like where does.
