U.S. National Debt on Track to Surpass Size of Economy
"The US has spent trillions of dollars fighting the coronavirus pandemic. All of that spending is pushing the nation towards a new milestone next fiscal year the Congressional Budget Office. Says US government debt is expected to exceed the size of the economy for the first time since World War. Two K. Davidson covers economic policy for the Wall Street Journal Hi Kate thanks for joining me Hi emery. Thanks for having me. So put this in context for us the last time the national debt was this high was World War Two, very different times in our history but these periods actually have a lot in common when it comes to national debt. That's right. The debt has been rising this spring in part because policymakers have even said, they view this moment as as a battle as almost a war against US global pandemic, they've spent trillions to try to cushion the economy from the negative effects who has businesses have closed down. Millions of people are out of work. They've approved a ton of money to get people enhanced unemployment. Benefits stimulus checks, emergency loans, and then also, of course, things like vaccine research and aid for hospitals. So all of that is going towards fighting would they do as this threat that's on on par with what we experienced during wartime. So the vast majority of this spending was, as you say to combat the coronavirus, can you detail some of the largest expenditures under those efforts? So the the? Biggest factors were, yes. All these stimulus measures I would say in the big ones were the the stimulus checks that went out. Remember most Americans got a twelve hundred dollars per person checks and and five hundred dollars for dependent children that was several hundred billion dollars. Congress also devoted a ton of money to the paycheck protection program. Those are those emergency loans for small businesses. That was another huge component between two bills. It was over five, hundred, billion dollars I think about six, hundred, billion actually, and then the third one is enhanced unemployment benefits. Stra six hundred dollar weekly checks that people have been getting on top of regular unemployment benefits. Those of course expired at end of July so that spending is coming down a little bit but all of those were. Big, pieces of this overall efforts to help the economy right now. Now, Congress is still debating whether to provide additional stimulus relief. How does the nation's debt load now play into these discussions among lawmakers? Well, I think it's it seems to be an important. Although both sides will sort of point fingers over whether these concerns are genuine Republicans have cited rising debt certainly is a big concern. A reason to be cautious about borrowing more Democrats are saying you know we we need to borrow now to protect the economy and it's worth it to take on more debt. If you're making sure that you're protecting economic growth on because leaving millions of people out of work at they're losing their homes businesses or closing can have long term negative effects on the economy. So they're saying it's worth it right. Now, and some of them are also pointing out that you know Republicans approved a very large tax cut a couple years ago that has constrained revenues and definitely both sides have approved big spending increases in recent years. So there's plenty of blame to go around but I think right now most people in most economists are saying debt should not be the top concern. So some some Republicans have acknowledged even some in the administration are saying look we we can't afford this right now especially, because interest rates are so low and we should do more. Right, and you spoke to some economists who said that despite the big economic contraction in the second quarter, this could have been much worse without some of the fiscal support detailed. That's right and we can see that in the data there are some some groups that break this down they look at the contributions of federal spending to overall GDP and right there was a a big drop off in the second quarter but we saw that fiscal stimulus spending by the federal government actually contributed but had a very positive effect in in other words supported supported economic output and made sure that it wasn't even worse. So you know just because of the way that. GDP is calculated and that's that's fairly typical during a recession. We see governments come in and do it the question right now as well. How much more support is the economy really need and I, think some people are worried that there. We could see because of these debt concerns we could see a situation where what we saw after the last recession where some people argue Congress pulled back on this support to quickly they pulled back too soon and that just really slowed the recovery. So so some folks are saying look don't make that mistake this time around yes. Debt is very high but we we can afford it. There's still big demand for US
Should You Start Accepting Apple Pay?
"One of the reasons why I'm doing this lesson today on apple pay is it's something that I actually looked into a few months ago. I did a massive amount of research on. This is worth actually incorporating in our website in our payment process. Depending on your website could be something as simple as just flipping a switch or a custom solutions is can take some time and money in our case it's the latter. So I wanted to make sure before we invested the time in adding apple pay that is actually the right time to do it something that we should do now and will benefit us in the future. So I did all the research for you. Let me tell you what I think first of all, let's talk a little bit about apple pay is applebee's basically apple's mobile Wallet most of US know about apple pay because it's either incorporated in a iphone that you have or somebody you know that has an iphone were they pay Vajpai wave where they just you know bring their phone to credit card machine and a charges their account. This is just one aspect of apple pay, which is the NFC aspect the near field communication aspect where basically it's like the tap and go technology but apple pay is a lot more than you can actually pay via apple pay if you're an apple device for online transactions because has already secured safely your credit card information and really with a double click on your phone or A click of a gun on a laptop with a touch ID, you can pay for things the fast way you could pay for anything and many big websites have caught on said, wow, this is actually a very, very fast way for people with apple devices to pay for goods I'm talking about online websites not even in physical stores. If you're in a physical store is a no brainer. You need to have NFC technology where you have tap and go where you're utilizing the whether it's apple pay or competitor like Samsung's. Even some credit cards now that have that built in but when it comes to your online store, apple pay again is a fast way for people to just use the stored information that's on their device on their computer on their phone or on their ipad to pay for things with a single click. Now, what's intriguing about this technology is basically allowing your customers to have as fast as a checkup process as they do with something like Amazon where They save all your credit card information you add to car or you just pay immediately and it's done. Amazon's really locked that down and it's the one of the reasons why they have such rapid growth and Jeff visas as one of the richest men that ever lived in the history of humankind and that technology that fast checkout is one of the reasons why Amazon so successful. So imagine you can borrow the experience in put it into your own. Website and that's really why I wanted to look into this because it really allows people to have a seamless checkout experience. The step where you at your payment details online for any transaction is the step where you're going to experience the most friction. This is where there's the most likelihood for people to abandon car. You can remove that friction altogether with something like apple pay you are one step ahead you're really gaining a competitive advantage from your competitor. And allowing your customers have a better experience. Now, of course, this is only relevant for those who have vices, and of course, apple pay should be an additional form of payment. So they can pay by credit card that you pay by apple pay. You might even want offer pay pal. The point here is is that it should be in addition to traditional credit card payment and you might be thing wall You know how many people actually using this Will there's two stats that really compelled me to say this is an important thing to implement in your website number one, five percent of all transactions online are paid with apple pay already in two, thousand and nineteen it's five percent you can increase your sales. Simply by offering this okay. Second in just five years from now in twenty twenty-five, the projection is ten percent they're going to go from five to ten percent in that short amount of time one and ten payments online are going to be with apple pay. You might be thinking what else ago well, another thing that makes people believe the apple's going to take over the carless payment is the sheer growth of the company itself apples at a tremendous pace. It's already the most valuable company in the world just hit a two trillion. Dollar valuation the Most Valuable Company in American history apple has already started to sell products at all different price points and they're not just an expensive product. Now, where you know you buy an iphone for twelve hundred dollars, they have iphones for five hundred dollars. Now they have the I watched, they have ipads for four hundred dollars. The point is that they want to get you in the ecosystem as early as possible as many people as possible because in all of that they on the same kind of software that will incorporate. Apple Pace, you'll be able to pay for things on those devices. Even if it's a four hundred dollar device, it's not an expensive piece of hardware. So applebee's only going to grow and experts have already said that you know paypal still the leader in online transactions and online payments, but they're starting to lose footing an apple CERNA gain on them and it all has to do with the fact that it's so seemless in order for you to pay for anything on pay pal if you're on a website, you choose the. PAYPAL option, and then the next sends you to pay pal and then you've got to sign into your pay pal and then you've got gotta authorize and you have to confirm. So it's a few steps and then you go back to the car and then you check out with apple pay. The experience is literally just choosing applegate and checking out you know you're going to confirm on your device either through face id or with touch ID, and it's a done deal over.

Trump pushes forward with executive action on economy despite legal questions
"CNN White House correspondent Boris Sanchez Boris President Trump is defending the executive orders issued on pandemic relief even as the White House is struggling to explain them they're having trouble landing out for the American people. Yeah that's right. Jim The president also spinning these executive actions claiming that they do more to help struggling Americans than they actually do the president dodging criticism even from within his own party that these actions are unconstitutional and also ignoring previous statements that he's made about executive actions. Tonight president trump sparring with his own party taking aim at critics of his new executive actions tweeting that Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse is a Republican in name only saying he has quote gone rogue. Again, this foolishness plays right into the hands of the radical left Dem's SAS tearing into trump's decision to circumvent stimulus negotiations in Congress calling the move unconstitutional slap comparing the actions to President Obama's signing of executive orders after lawmakers could not reach consensus orders that trump himself frequently criticized. The country was in based on executive orders right now Obama goes around signing executive orders. It's a basic disaster you can't do it in theory is opposed to you know the old fashioned way get everybody into a room and get something that people agree on trump was not in the room getting lawmakers together instead spending the weekend at his Golf Club in New Jersey as questions linger over whether the actions will survive legal challenges, members of the administration struggled to even explain them.

Trump Wants to Ban TikTok, NASA-SpaceX Mission Success, & Unemployment Benefits Expire - Monday, August 3rd
"It's Monday August third president trump wants to ban TIKTOK. Info on the NASA spacex mission success plus unemployment benefits have expired why trump's team is interested in Biden's VP pick and more. Welcome to Rob Song, podcast where I bring you the latest Progressive News and politics and ten minutes or less I'm Robert Cunningham thank you for tuning in. Let's get informed. So president trump announced on Friday night that he wants to ban Tiktok Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that trump would be making an announcement on these matters in the coming days he said this on Fox News Sunday morning futures where he also said that Tiktok, the Chinese owned short form video APP needs to be taken down via executive action in addition to Tiktok. Mike. POMPEO. Pointed to we chat, which is a Chinese messaging APP saying that both of these are feeding data directly to the. Chinese Communist Party quote for a long time a long time. The United States just said well goodness if we're having fun with it or if a company can make money off of it, we're going to permit that to happen president trump said enough going on the secretary of state added and we are going to fix it and so he will take action in the coming days with respect to a broad array of national security risks that are presented by software that connected to the Chinese Communist Party. Microsoft has emerged as wanting to potentially by all US operations of tiktok accents reports that trump does have a deal on his desk where Microsoft would lead acquisition of the US operations of six talk and Microsoft seems to believe that it's possible that a total separation can happen from tiktok parent company by Dance. It's important for you to understand that presidents normally can't just order a ban on individual companies like this but the fact that Tiktok has a foreign owner allows the Treasury Department to have broad. Authority over it. Now, at this point, it's unclear whether trump is going to allow Microsoft to buy it or if trump is just going to push for an all out ban, we don't know. But what we do know is that this is super weird coming just months before an election six does have one hundred, million US users, and so it is rather strange move it could alienate some I mean granted I don't know if it would make much of a difference, but it just seemed strange. NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Bankin are safely on earth after a historic flight to and from the International Space Station provided by SPACEX Axios says on Saturday afternoon both astronaut splashdown into the Gulf of Mexico after about two forty, eight PM eastern time a space x vessel was able to recover both astronauts from their crew, dragon? Capsule. Hurley in bank in two month mission was the first time that people have been launched into orbit from the United States. The end of the space shuttle. Program in twenty eleven. This new move of partnering for Space Exploration, with private companies can allow NASA to act more of like a buyer instead of a provider of these services now and will free up NASA's budget to focus on things like getting people to the moon and eventually other planets in the future. In fact, NASA and SPACEX already have another trip planned this time for six months with multiple. NASA. Going up to the International Space Station, this will take place around late. September. So be on the lookout. Additional unemployment benefits of six hundred dollars per week expired on Friday July thirty first and reportedly the White House Senate. Republicans and Democrats are all know we're closer to a deal? Apparently, all sides are on board though for another twelve, hundred dollar check like was done with the cares act earlier this year the main point of disagreement is the additional unemployment benefits six hundred dollars extra. A month is what people have been receiving since the cares act was passed Democrats want to continue at that rate while Republicans want to. Bring that down to two hundred additional dollars per week while eventually moving holy to seventy percent of lost wages Republicans additionally wanted to get a one week extension on the six hundred dollars per week of additional benefits passed quickly. But the Democrats are refusing because they think that the Republicans are just GonNa. Use It as just a quick win and move on. But the Democrats are saying that they want a full robust bill. Now, the Democrats have proposed a three trillion dollar deal while the Republicans are looking to pass. A one trillion dollar deal, and as of yesterday junk Schumer the Senate Minority leader said that there were significant divisions remaining but good progress is being made quote. We made good progress. There are lots of things we are still divided on and we're not close to an agreement yet, but we are making good progress and I'm hopeful that we can get to an agreement. Now they're going to resume talks today. Okay. But do not be fooled. The Republicans are trying to place the onus here on Democrats but Democrats came. Up with a bill back in May the bill back in May like I said had a three trillion dollar price tag. It was approved by the House but then has not been voted on in the Senate and Senate Republicans want to have a one trillion dollar bill that does not do nearly enough in my opinion. So but as of right now you know who's GonNa Suffer America, the American people that are unemployed we just had on Thursday. One of the worse GDP records for quarter ever if not the worst. The percentage of GDP lost was close to thirty three percent. I hope we get a deal soon things are super hard to pass in Washington obviously, and I'm glad that the Democrats are sticking their feet in and trying to get this thing passed the Democrats are not perfect and I fear that they're going to cave too much here. But we've got to get something done because there is an eviction crisis looming we need to renew the moratorium on fictions. Now CNBC just posted a study recently that twenty two to fifty nine percent depending on the state that you live in of renters may be facing eviction as a result of the corona virus economic circumstances these numbers are horrifying and I'm sure this isn't the last time you'll be hearing about it. Trump's campaign paused ads over the weekend, which is really weird because they wanted to rebrand their messaging and new ads launching today are going to be depicting Joe Biden as a puppet of the radical left. This comes from two senior campaign officials but the most recent internal polls show that the puppet of the left's attack on Biden is going to resonate with voters and speaking personally in someone who lives in a very heavy trump territory. The this is the talking point that I've heard Oh Biden's not the problem it's. Going to be the VP you have to look out for as if Kamla Harrison. Some sort of crazy radical assuming he chooses someone like her speaking of the VP spot trump's campaign is very interested in that because the quote unquote radical left thing that they're going to be using their ads is a placeholder for whoever Joe Biden ends up picking. By the way, we will learn who Joe Biden is going to pick around on tenth multiple sources have suggested he said now he pushed back his self imposed deadline from. The first week of August to the second week and one source has said that it's going to be August tenth now. So be on the lookout here. No matter who Joe Biden picks. I think that Joe Biden is well-positioned. Of course, we all have to go out and vote that. This is not a matter of that we have to vote even if we live in California or Massachusetts or Oklahoma Even for God's sake, we have to vote for Joe Biden, but it doesn't really matter as much who he picks. Think this go around because trump's campaign is reportedly very upset that Biden doesn't have the unfavorability rating that Hillary Clinton did in two, thousand, sixteen, all of this trump at drama gotta be Biden's campaign to respond Andrew Bates. Director of rapid response said quote the American people know Joe Biden and after seven consecutive months of failed leadership during the worst possible health crisis in generations they know that our nation's capacity to join the rest of the world beating back cove nineteen has been crippled by one overriding burden donald trump. Representative James Clyburn of South Carolina said on Sunday that he believes trump is trying to put a cloud over the election and that he does not plan to leave office. If he loses Clyburn told CNN that the American people had better wake up to trump and he compared trump to Mussalini and said Russian President Vladimir Putin is akin to Hitler further representative Clyburn said quote I don't think he plans to leave the White House. He doesn't plan to have fair unfettered elections I believe that he plans to install. Himself in some kind of emergency way to continue to hold office. Now, all of this is to say everything that Clyburn is saying here means that we have to so overwhelmed the vote that trump cannot cheat. We have to force him out of office because on January twentieth at noon no matter how hard trump tries he will not be the president if we overwhelmed the vote and like Joe. Biden. So that's what we have to do. If you need help getting registered in your state, go to vote Dot
Farmers earn income by leasing land for solar
"Solar. Developers need land where they can install solar panels and many farmers are looking for new ways to make money from their land especially as they approach the end of their careers. Charles Gould an energy educator with Michigan State University extension in his State about a third of farmers are sixty, five or older. And they want to retire. They worked hard all their lives and the profit margins for agriculture have been so thin he says fewer young people are taking over their family farms. So older farmers often consider selling their land to housing or commercial developers, but leasing acreage for solar installations has become an alternative source of annual income. When farmers are approached with the lease agreement that can pay depending on how close you are to the power substation twelve hundred dollars to. Five hundred dollars an acre that's very attractive. What's more Michigan farmers can earn tax breaks for keeping land preserved as open space that can include land lease for solar as long as it meets certain conservation standards. So gold says growing solar can be away for farmers to continue making money from their land while preserving it for future.
Political debate puts unemployment benefits in limbo for millions
"Political stand dog. That's thirty million unemployed Americans are caught in the middle. Worried that their financial lifeline will be taken away. For the past four months, unemployment benefits included that six hundred federal way the week on top of the money provided by each state in New Jersey where the maximum payout is seven thirteen dollars. You could have received as much as thirteen hundred thirteen dollars every week. In Massachusetts the state with the highest unemployment rate, you could receive as much as fourteen hundred twenty three dollars, eight, hundred and thirty five in Mississippi the lowest amount. On average, every dollar spent in uninsured benefits. Generates up to two dollars in the economy, but it's also important for stabilizing the economy at a time when we have so many people out of work, but the federal payment is only guarantee through July thirty first payments expired this week worrying those who rely on it, so the extra six hundred dollars a month from unemployment really helped going down to one hundred and fifty dollars a week. I don't know who came up with that figure. But. It's not a good one. Keith walkers a hairdresser in Virginia. He and his partner used to provide well for their four children. But in this pandemic, almost every aspect of life has become a struggle all the bills or rolling in. The deep paid despite the widespread national suffering, extending unemployment benefits has become the latest political battleground on Capitol Hill where at one foot and the pandemic. And one foot. And then recover. The American people need more help today. Republican majority. Senate leader Mitch McConnell introducing. The heels act calling for another round of twelve hundred dollar stimulus checks, but slashing the six hundred dollar weekly payments to two hundred dollars a week for the months of August and September and porting to those who are making more now from the combine unemployment than they were before when you pay people not to work. What do you expect? There are fourteen million more unemployed people of them. There are job opening so the idea that there are some disincentives just really runs counter to the facts Republicans hoping to put a plan in place for September to pay jobless workers, seventy percent of what they used to make Democrats want to keep the six hundred dollar payments in place through January. They outline their plane two months ago and Save Republicans in the White House have wasted precious time. It doesn't work. It's going to be impossible to implement. The Republican proposal is a punch in the gut and a slap in the face. It's time that this body lead when the president failed, negotiations have started here tonight, but it is likely to take weeks to get the two sides on the same page, and while Washington debates benefits for some thirty million Americans are gonNA be hanging in the balance as the pandemic drags on and resources run out Tracy Rice's trying her best to make it through. How much time do you have left? Before, you run out of time. I say maybe. If. I get the sense you've had some nice days shed. Some tears were all of this? There have been nights when I woke up wondering. What am I going to? What's going to happen? You know crying silently to myself. Not knowing what the future holds. I can tell you're shaking right now. Your legs shaking. What's going just stuff you know it weighs on me. That's all it weighs on me because they're trying to keep a positive outlook I. try to be positive children.
US Republicans have unveiled a $1 trillion package to kick-start the economy, Democrats call the plan 'inadequate'
"Republicans have unveiled a trillion dollar package to kick start the country's economy after the damage done by the pandemic Democrats, have already called the plan inadequate. Joining me on the line is Scott Lucas professor of US politics at the University of Birmingham, good morning and welcome to the brim scores. So what are the main feature of this baggage? The headline that will come out of this is not one of actually protecting people. And support, it will actually be the fact that unemployment benefits for millions of Americans who have lost their jobs from Corona virus? Those benefits will be cut by sixty seven percent from six hundred dollars per week to two hundred dollars per week. there is a twelve hundred dollar payment the equivalent of three weeks. Of support that is being lost, but after that. You've got. More than fifty one million Americans who filed unemployment application since mid-march, trying to exist on a lot less money. The Republicans argue well that six hundred a week is a disincentive to return to work, but it seems to be at a time. When Corona virus is resurging in the states of very heavy measure to sort of bludgeoned people back into work places. That may not be safe. Beyond that you do have a lot of protection for business for example protecting them from lawsuits. From workers over Corona virus cases. You do have some more support for small businesses. But you also include some pet projects, the most notable of which is a new FBI building which is almost an obsession of donald trump, probably almost a billion dollars in that gets in there at the same time that those who are trying to get by week-to-week are not going to be helped by this measure. Do. You think this is one of the United States needs at least moments, well I think it's a reality in without playing party politics. We've got to say look is the fact is is that as the pandemic is not only continuing but surging in the United States? It gets more and more expensive to try to deal with the economic effects. You have already had to support packages worth a total about five trillion. This would be the third. The Democrats want three trillion rather than one trillion to fully protect people in other words. The bottom line here is is that the ultimate protection from Corona virus not just for lives. Not just for families affected by the loss of lives, but for the US economy is to get the virus under control, and the administration has singularly failed to do that when you have coronavirus cases that are researching and forty-one and fifty days looking at then, what's the Democrats? Won't so you already mentioned that? The Republicans want to cut unemployment benefits and the Democrats would also want to spend moist. There's something. Something else that Democrats. Also what will the Democrats want to maintain The unemployment benefit through the end of twenty twenty at the current level beyond that, however the Democrats want more money for test trace to contain corona virus, and the White House has held out against that because more money for testing trace exposes Donald Trump's claim that less testing means less cases. So why don't we just go that path? The Democrats also. One did not want to see liability protection for businesses. They think that's the wrong priority. Instead the money should be put into community development, getting more people into the workplace on a community basis in a safe way, and there's also another big difference in this that reflects trump's priorities, and that is that the Republicans, rather than providing unemployment benefits rather than trying to build up the safety net or providing tens of billions of. Of Dollars for schools that reopened with full class instruction from next month. The problem with that Donald Trump may be demanding that there is no online instruction at schools, but medical experts say it poses a threat to staff to children and to their parents. It also sounds like Americans can expect too. Many Americans can expect to receive some some chicks also as a financial stimulus something that is a donald trump approach as well. It's two things. One is okay. We dangled twelve hundred dollars to you and let's say if it's my parents. In a WHO retirees it's up and they'll be eager to vote for trump in November because they just got more money, but I come back to the basic point. If you're unemployed and again more than fifty one million Americans filed unemployment applications that twelve hundred dollars direct payment only covers you for three weeks of lost money from the fact that you're having declined benefit until you can find another job, so it's sort of more of A. A token effort by the Republicans doesn't really deal with the long-term economic situation, and really exposes I think the bottom line for the administration, which is even yesterday, Larry, cudlow the White House is top economic advisor was saying when we are having more than a thousand deaths today in the United States when we're now more than four point three million cases. It's okay we're on a v-shaped recovery. Guess what folks we're not, and we won't be recovered by November, when Donald Trump has his priority, which is getting a second term in office. Exactly, SCOTT'S A. Nice Republicans are they all united behind these plan? No their their blood, and in five. This is something that causes further complications. They can't just point at the Democrats and say Oh. Boo to you. You won't support our measures a number of leading Senate Republicans. Including the two thousand sixteen presidential candidate Ted Cruz have said they will not accept any stimulus package. That's it no more money for anything. Graham Donald. Trump's front has warned that there's opposition to any package and the confusion knots Republicans with so great that as the bill was unveiled yesterday. Senate leader Mitch McConnell the most important. Republican in the Chamber did not know that the measure still included the seven hundred and fifty million dollars for the new FBI building. What will happen next with this plan? Won't pass. The House remember the House Democrats have already passed their three trillion. Dollar stimulus package and they're going to say look. That's the one you have to deal that your baseline. Mark Meadows the White House Chief of Staff Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin. We're meeting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer last night, so no deal with our plan, but the idea of slashing unemployment benefits by almost seventy percent of while protecting businesses from lawsuits. That's a no go for Democrats, so I fear. What you see is that as the unemployment benefits expire this week, you might have a short term extension. Of those benefits, but the Democrats will insist that it six hundred dollars per week. If the Republicans don't assist on that, this bill of theirs will not pass, and all those Americans who have been out of work, get nothing house of next week, and what to expect to happen with the US economy. The US economy is going to continue to. Be Stagnant and probably go downwards. Again, bottom line. Not Revive an economy. You cannot reopen as Donald Trump wants to say we'll save. America will be hashed had winning unless you contain corona virus, and the United States does not have output test. Try Test, trace and track measures to safely reopen. And therefore provide economic recovery that trump desperately wants within the next one hundred days, and what kind of a? East this for Donald Trump does he need to emerge from all this as as a winner to succeed the November presidential election? I'm going to be honest with you. Marcus I. don't Care What happens with Donald Trump being a winner. Don't care with Donald Trump's ego. Donald Trump needs to be put into a room away from all of this, because the hard graph that needs to be done, and this is beyond Republicans Democrats they do need to come together to talk about surviving this economic downturn about getting control of the virus, and when you have Donald, trump who? Is Unpredictable. Who is chaotic? Who is not exactly? Up to speed on what is happening he just stands in the way of anything productive whatever happens in November.

"The scope of the societal impacts, being both inflicted and uncovered by the Covid, nineteen pandemic, truly without precedence. At the end of June, thirty three million Americans, are receiving unemployment benefits nearly five times the peak during the great recession in parallel, the magnitude of racial injustices, being perpetrated across country is now in such cliff focus that the fight to eradicate racism has entered a new and powerful chapter. With every disaster, whether it's an economic collapse or damage inflicted by a wildfire hurricane would given a choice rebuild in the same pattern as before or reimagined a different future. The choice to rebuild is often fueled by a sense of nostalgia, a desire to reclaim what was lost as we think about our collective tomorrow. There's a lot of the past we need to leave behind. If a peaceful compassionate, equitable and sustainable future is our goal, then we must undergo a careful assessment to ensure that our path forward doesn't rebuild the systems of violence, inequality, racism, and pollution that a corroding our society from the inside out. Refashioning a new future is full of promise, but we often don't take the bold steps necessary because of a fear of uncertainty, that's where big thinkers can help us by navigating a path for they illuminate each of the steps of the journey giving us the confidence needed to climb the highest peak this week. We talked to Dr Manuel, Pesto. One those bold big thinkers Manuel is the University of Southern California's distinguished professor of sociology American Studies in ethnicity. He's the director of US's program for environmental, regional equity and the director of the Center for the Study of Immigration Integration. I've had the privilege of working with Dr on environmental justice issues for the past decade, and he is no ordinary academic. He worked directly with communities to gain their wisdom and advocates directly with policy makers to get them to move towards community goals. Doctor Pastor is the author of state of Resistance. What California's dizzying descent and remarkable resurgence means for America's future, and with Chris. Bene- the. This could be something big. How social movements regional equity a reshaping Metropolitan America and just growth inclusion and prosperity in America's Metropolitan Regions? Doug Pass is working with both Los Angeles and the State of California to develop policies to help move towards a more just equitable and sustainable post Kovic Future. Dr Pesto has been tracking the impact of the pandemic on African American and Latino Communities in California and nationally I stopped by asking about the data. That's just been released on this topic by the Centers for Disease Control. Well the incredible statistic, coming out today, was that for Latinos between the ages of forty and fifty nine, the rate of contracting cases of Covid as five times that for whites in the same age group. We're certainly seeing as in California's well where Latinos make up forty three percent of the population, eighteen to forty nine kind of prime work in age, but seventy three percents, deaths, and the reasons for this are pretty clear, you know Cova is the disease that reveals are fundamental. Illness has a society, the precarity of employment and the lack of assets that made a lot of people kind of rush back to work, says the only way to kick it income difficulties with legal status, which has been in particular. Her emigrated Latinos that they are worried about where their next dollars coming from. They're not getting a federal relief in terms of unemployment insurance to not getting the federal relief check and in fact. Fact if you're in a family where two people filed a tax return, one person with a social security number, and the other was what's called an individual taxpayer identification number I tim, which is our undocumented people filed tax returns. That family unit is excluded from the twelve hundred dollars per person checks, and so are their children who are not getting the five hundred dollar relief checks. So this is a population that's been particularly desperate to go to work now serve big disparities as well for African Americans, but I've been predicting that this is something that would ripped its way particularly to the immigrant Latino community, and that's what data released today from the CDC seems to be showing

U.S. Personal Income Soared in April, Not Consumer Spending
"New numbers from the commerce department show consumer spending plunged more than thirteen percent in April the steepest drop since the government began to keep records more than sixty years ago and it's an ominous signal for a country where consumer spending is the main driver of economic activity and here Scott Horsley joins us Scott thanks so much for being with us good morning where their particular kinds of spending that dried up in April or was it pretty much across the board it was really widespread Scott of course that's partly because there weren't a lot of opportunities to spend money lots of restaurants and retail shops were closed so we saw a sharp drop in in just about every kind of purchase spending at barber shops and beauty parlors alike was down by seventy four percent even healthcare spending which is usually pretty recession proof plunged by twenty nine percent last month a lot of doctors and dentists offices were closed for all but emergency appointments for and how much of the cutting spending we seem to have been driven by the massive layoffs you know there was a pretty steep drop in paychecks last month either because people were laid off or or even those are working have their hours cut many cases but what's interesting is that was more than offset by huge spike in government relief payments between the unemployment benefits and those twelve hundred dollar stimulus checks that went out Americans overall personal income actually shot up last month by more than ten percent we just wound up banking some of that extra income overall Americans saved about a third of their disposable income last month that's about four times the usual savings rate now some of that might have been involuntary savings by people who just couldn't go out to a movie or a ball game as they would like to do but it also could reflect people deliberately squirrelly money away in anticipation of lean months ahead and now that more businesses and more states are opening their doors in many parts of the country should we look for spending to come back to it's gonna be interesting to watch if you think about it a revival of consumer spending is gonna depend on three things one is the opportunity to spend too is money in consumers pockets to spend and then three is just the confidence that it's safe to go out and spend money we are starting to see more opportunities as as businesses open their doors as far as money in your pocket you know some people are going back to work but with double digit unemployment wages are likely to remain depressed for awhile to calm and we can't necessarily count on the government to make up the gap with those big relief payments in the twelve hundred dollar payments are gone they're not set to be repeated and the extra six dollars a week in unemployment benefits the Congress authorized during the pandemic those are due to run out at the end of July so ability to spend is kind of a question mark he also said that consumers have to feel safe about being able to go out and spend money how do we judge that right now that's the big unknown and of course it depends in part on the path of the pandemic this is something for reserve chairman Jerome Powell talked about yesterday in a webcast hosted by Princeton University a full recovery of the economy will really depend on people being confident that it's safe to go out and say to engage in a broad range of economic activities that's how the economy will recover and eat you see people testing the limits now probably every day all of us are doing things you might not have done two months ago and you're just seeing how that works we're in the midst of a big national experiment some people gonna respect their favorite restaurant as soon as the doors open others are gonna be more cautious and the some of those millions of individual decisions will determine the direction the economy we know we're in a deep hole right now the big question is how soon can we climb

"And that compares to twelve hundred dollars that you would otherwise have to pay. Per, year if you wanted to get that same kind of high quality material they want, now what's, the reaction been though from schools that are used to that traditional model of you know the. The really expensive textbooks that we're all. Used to griping about the initial reaction I am we've talked to literally thousands of faculty Around. The country over the last few months has been overwhelmingly positive the faculty nose. And, chest the pain of the students and in fact the faculty knows that many students, actually elect, to ultimately drop out of the course because they can't afford the materials that they need and. Many students make some really bad choices They, say you know what let me see whether I can get through, the course without the material then. Midterms roll around they figure out that they're behind and then they drop out and, all of a sudden a four year, college becomes a five year six year college and the tuition. Mounts up so in that respect we feel that. We are absolutely on the right. Side of history and we all decide of students so a lot of schools then. Have have adopted in signed. On to the program a lot of faculty assigned on we we are seeing even entire campuses signing onto the new program so we have very encouraged by the initial, reaction Michael Hanson is CEO of sin gauge his his company is taking a different approach to college textbooks and course materials they're offering a subscription model so that's, far different, than, the usual method of heading down to. The campus bookstore, and dropping about a thousand dollars there or or more as as Michael was saying what's the best way to check and see if. Of course materials required for students this fall Wall are. Available through sin gauge. So the easiest way to the, goal is go to sing h. dot com slash unlimited and that's about c. n. g. a. g. e. dot com and you can also go. To any college bookstore, in the United States down in Research Triangle park or wherever and, you can get information because we. Have made that information available through the college bookstore as well Michael we've seen these, subscription models really take off when it, comes to content streaming movies music TV shows and and now. Even even textbooks as your company is doing what. Do you see in terms of. The future of this kind of subscription model this kind of format I think the. Beauty of this format is. That it finally gives students access to the digital learning experience which we know actually is the better learning experience because we can customize the material and the experience to, the individual learning style of the student you might learn better through video I might learn better Through reading or vice versa and both of, us can now, pace are learning according to our individual learning style and we, can customize the materials to your individual needs what's next force engage are you just, going to continue to? Grow this model or you're going to expanded into other areas other technologies we are going to first of, all focused on making this model available to as many students as we possibly can because we believe it is an unbelievably great deal for students..
