"Climate change in minnesota costing you. Let's ask mark colder. He's the vice president of public affairs at the insurance federation of minnesota. I'm mark welcome to climate cast. Hi paul thank you very much for having us on and talking about this important topic what trends are insurers seeing for billion dollar weather disasters in minnesota over the past couple of decades up until nineteen ninety eight we had decades of stability and in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight. We had three significant storms including one on may thirtieth that was part of the southern great lakes to ratio. That storm cost nine hundred million dollars in insured losses and those three storms together in one thousand nine hundred cost one point five billion dollars and that's important because that one point five billion dollars in losses is more than the previous forty years combined and since then as you just noted it really hasn't stopped so this is almost becoming an annual thing. Isn't it it is. It's about every other year. We see and just in two thousand seventeen on june eleventh. There was a large hail storm. It was a very brief storm. Only about a half hour or so. It hit the northwest suburbs of the twin cities brooklyn park and coon rapids. It seemed like it was a minor thing that ended up being three point. Two billion dollar insured losses catastrophe. It was the most expensive storm in state history and the tenth most expensive storm in the world that year and so when these storms happen know the insurers pay for it when the insurance pay for it that means policyholders pay for it

Interview with Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky

"Talk to me about going forward and connecting people and the focus. You're putting on experiences but also on the lives you can create for your host. Who in part. I think are taking equity and becoming quite important for the brand. We've just heard in london here this week. That uber has said its drivers will become workers with benefits and minimum wage. So they're getting brought into the companies. So how do you sort of to advance the experience of your host but also the people that are using the platform to rent yet to great questions. Maybe i'll start with the second question host. And then i'll go to the first one the different like let's just take us versus uber. One difference in us an uber is the founders of uber created uber because they wanted to be writers another words they said it would be awesome if i could summon a black car so they started on the buyer side. We were totally opposite. My roommate and i weren't desiring to have a service like airbnb to travel because we were too broke to even want such a service. I mean we would have loved it but we were so broke. We just wanted to way to make money so we really started as host. So in that sense. I think this is a company of hosts by host for host and even if we have veered from that in the past. We're back there. And so i'm very proud of the fact that number one host have made one hundred and ten billion dollars on our platform since we started. That's pretty cool. The next thing. I'm saying i think it's cooler. Fifty five percent of that income has gone to women most ecommerce platforms. The vast majority economics. They're not evenly distributed on airbnb. The vast majority of income is outside the united states and more than half of it goes to women. it's a pretty diverse audience. We have four million host on airbnb. Ninety percent of our hosts are individual people so there is a question. How many of these are professionals. The answer is ten percent ninety percent of individuals. The most common careers are healthcare workers schoolteachers. In students these are the three most common professions that we've seen so these are truly everyday people like my parents. My parents are social workers. And it would make sense that people who need supplemental income would be everyday people for the most part one of the things we did before it went public. Is i got a piece of advice from somebody. They said. institutionalize your intentions. So that even as a public company you can minimize conflicts. Your vision and what they really meant was wants to go public. The cement of your company gets a little harden. What do you want to bake into the company before you go public. And i said one of the things i want to bake in is to create a host endowment. I want to set aside equity for host and so one of the things we did is we took nine point. Two million shares of airbnb equity and we put it into is essentially a airbnb host endowment kind of like a college endowment where it would grow every year but then some of the appreciation would get distributed into the host each year. So that was the idea that endowment is nearly two billion dollars today and growing. I hope it's one day. Larger than most college endowments and we created a host advisory board of seventeen host from fourteen countries to advise us on how to spend that money and reinvest it back to the host community. We also allowed host to invest in our ipo. And we had. I think it was fifteen thousand host. If i'm not mistaken who invested. They bought stock at sixty eight dollars. A share as you know the stock prices at the time of this recording around triple so those hosts have done really well and if i could allowed winning more host to invest in the whatever but we had some sec regulations that limited us and so these are just some of the many things we tried to do. But i just want to say like our commitment to host just beginning. Because i've committed to putting more than one hundred million dollars in my own equity into the host endowment and we're gonna continue to invest in our host because we are nothing without our host and in the end the day everybody's more of a community anything else i mean. Yeah we are a technology company in a sense but with people are buying isn't technology and they're not buying real estate we're not like zillow wh- senator of our company our host and our people and so that leads to the second question. What is airbnb about in. Where's it going when we started airbnb. Our first tagline was travel like a human. The idea was that you were like kind of treated for who you are. And you're seen for who you are valued for who you are and that was kind of the idea. I mean it was idealistic. But i can tell you. We definitely believed it in the early days and we realized that i had these two crazy ideas when we start airbnb. These crazy beliefs and people thought i was absurd. The first idea was we thought people were fundamentally good. That sounds kind of crazy because if you open any newspaper you wouldn't think they're good. People are good wise every headline about the worst of humanity. I think there was a famous quote by a former chief justice. The united states. You said i don't read the front page of the newspaper. I read the sports section. The front pages filled the man's failures. The sports pages. Filled man successes. I kind of feel like despite what we read in the news. People are funny. Good and i can tell you that we have the data to prove it. We probably more than anyone to prove what happens. When a hundred million people live together. Mostly good things sometimes bad things but statistically people are good and the second thing is true is that people are ninety nine point nine percent the same and you would never think that today given that we are so divided and yeah we spent a lot of time energy celebrating that point one percent. That makes us different. We call that culture in other things but let's not forget that we're mostly the same deep down and if you think people are good and their most the same then you'd believe that it's better to bring them together than divide them in separate them. That was the idea behind airbnb and so real estate and housing is just the beginning. We launched a few years ago. Airbnb experiences air experiences are essentially just three hour activities where you can have a host host. One other passions. You can go to tuscany. And make pasta with grandma grandma. Non an arena. Who's like an eighty plus year old grandmother who grew up during world war. Two and tells you about living in italy during the rise of fascism and then kind of what happened after and she tells you about her famous recipe and you make pasta in her house with and then you eat around the table this alternative to going to restaurants a pretty cool alternative so we have these like really interesting experiences and i think experiences is going to be a really really big product. I thought last year was going to break out year. But of course social distancing met we put on pause but we're looking at many new ways to try just connect people again. I think this is one of the loneliest times in human history right now. I think most people listening would probably say they felt some type of loneliness in the last year. We've been so separated. And i think in life we sometimes appreciate things when they're taken away from us and human connection and travels been taken away from us and i hope that makes us value at more than ever before and i'm pretty concerned about the amount of isolation happening and i don't think that social media and digital connections are fully nourishing. We actually do need real connection with real people. And i actually think it's good. Connect people are different than you. If you wanna like bridge the divide in any country. The best answer. I've heard is to just walk in other people's shoes don't argue over the internet. No one's ever changed. Someone's mind on a youtube comment section to my knowledge. But how could you not change your mind when you walk in someone. Just home live in their home walk. In their shoes do their activities. You may not agree with them but you will find that. Most of them are good and they're mostly just like you deep

Global Shortage in Semiconductors Increases

"Global shortage in computer chips reaches crisis point. And i really wish that they would just break more into what's actually going on behind the scenes. I get it maybe to some extent. We might not actually know what's going on. But let's hop on into the articles. He what's up. Consumers are facing price rises and shortages of products from. Tv's mobile phones to cars and game consoles as a global shortage in. Semiconductors grows shortage in chips. The brain with an electronic device in the world has been steadily worsening since last year now. Initially the problem was only temporarily in supplies. Factories shut down when the pandemic i hit however although production is back to normal a new surge in demand driven by changing habits fueled by the pandemic means that now is reaching a crisis point car manufacturers investing in tech heavy electric vehicles. Which is okay. I'm just going to make a point to some extent stupid. Gopher hybrid the boom in sales of tv's in home computers launch new game consoles five g. Mobile phones have all driven demand. So we know that demand has been going on an increase to like crazy stupid level that we haven't seen before even a mighty apple a two trillion dollar company in the world's biggest buyer of semiconductors spending fifty eight billion annually was forced to delay the launch of much hyped iphone twelve by two months last year due to the shortage in one of the reasons. Chips are everything says neal camping media in tech analyst at mehrabad. There's a perfect storm of supply and demand factors going on here but basically there is a new level of demand that can't be kept up with everyone is in crisis and it's getting worse for recently canceled shift at two car. Plants and said profits could be hit by up to two point. Five billion year due to chip shortages while nissan is idling output at plants in mexico. Us general motors said they could face a two billion dollar profit hit as well. Meanwhile sony last month along with other console makers has struggled with stock shortages over the last year that it might not hit sales targets for new playstation five this year because of the semiconductor supply issue microsoft's xbox said if forecasts supply issues continuing at least until the second half of the year and then they go on to talk about samsung itself selling fifty six billion dollars of semi conductors to other an consuming thirty.

Unit highlighted a significant issue. Saying there is a serious imbalance in the pecking order of who has Giving the limited supplies of chips so what exactly is going on. While chip shortage looks set to persist for some time yet. It up the two years to get complex semiconductor production factories up and running and manufacturers are in process of significantly raising prices for the second time in less than a year is no sign of supply catching upper demand decreasing while prices are rising across the chain so economically. What does this mean means. Less supply obviously unable to meet demand and prices. Go up because of it. Because that's kind of the only counterbalance that you have to be able to balance everything taken an economics course at the basic level. How things work. So what exactly is going on. It could be that. There aren't enough factories able to produce enough of a supply of semiconductors. One thing i'm wondering though is are there enough materials to be able to construct it. I mean semiconductors aren't really the easiest to make their actually quite complex quite exact in its production of it not to mention you also need to have trained individuals who know how to do it.

Purdue Pharma proposes $10 billion plan to come out of bankruptcy

"Pharma the maker of oxycontin filed. Its long bankruptcy plan just before midnight last night in a federal court right. So here's the plan. The company itself will be dissolved. A new organization will be created that would direct profits to help people who were hurt by the opioid epidemic but two dozen states came right out and they rejected that plan. They say it doesn't hold the sackler family which owns purdue pharma accountable. Let's bring bringing. Npr's addiction correspondent. Brian man Brian what does purdue pharma savings. This plan will do the company's president a he's a guy named steve miller and he says this new company that will be created from the ashes of purdue farmable essentially exist to benefit the public. The sackler will have no role or ownership going forward and over time. This new firm will generate hundreds of millions of dollars much of it from selling oxycontin which they say they can do ethically and safely. They'll also produce other medicines that will help people with opioid addiction. According to purdue pharma the total value over time To thousands of creditors will be billions of dollars and members of the sackler family also issued a statement last night. They said this plan offers. And i'm quoting here. An important step forward helping those who suffer from addiction. Okay but wire so many states unhappy about this a lot of reasons but a big complaint is from state attorney general most of them democrats who say that purdue pharma and its owners the sackler only offering up about five hundred million dollars right up front the rest of the cash payments including four point. Two billion dollars promised by the sackler themselves. All that money would be spread out in installments. Paid over most of the next decade that really angers critics like more healey. She's attorney general in massachusetts. What the are offering essentially as a way for the payments to be structured. That makes it convenient for them. They get to keep their billions and bank accounts and make money and use the to pay. You know the states out over time while they're oxycontin or chin keeps growly and there's another row bay for critics and it's affected a lot of the ten billion dollars in value. Promise by purdue pharma in this deal doesn't actually come in the form of cash that communities desperately need to pay for things like addiction programs in public health instead. This plan would provide low cost addiction treatment drugs like buprenorphine and lock zone which the new spin off company would make and sell at a discount. Then what happens to the sackler here. Because if the federal bankruptcy court approves this plan i mean they feel any personal thing at all. This is a really big question. After launching oxycontin and claiming it was safer than opioids other opioids the sackler and their company hauled in more than thirty dollars in revenue. Purdue pharma has since pleaded guilty twice to federal criminal charges for their marketing of opioids researchers say oxycontin contributed to this explosion of opioid addiction and death. Now the actors have agreed to give up control of their company. But some critics point out that purdue pharma was already sinking under the crush of all these lawsuits. So it's not clear how big a financial sacrifice that really is. Members of the family also added about a billion dollars to the earlier settlement offer. They made but in this deal they will keep most of their personal fortunes and they'll admit no

Typically one server validates that transaction and different. There's okay then process sincere in blockchain more. Dlt really using a client. We propose transaction to multiple servers run by different parties which validated on action. And if okay together consensus process and if the consensus was a succeeds then the process the transaction and save it and they typically the blockchain varies from here on that.

Post-Pandemic Cities Might Actually Want Airbnb Around

"Has been a roller coaster year for a lot of businesses. Few more nausea inducing than airbnb. The company saw an eighty percent drop in business. Last spring is the pandemic hit. It laid off a quarter of its employees raised. Two billion dollars in private funding hurried the heck up and introduced online experiences like virtual cooking classes to try to make any money at all but by december airbnb had recovered enough for a blockbuster. Ipo and a profitable third quarter now. The companies facing the return of its core business plus. It's pre existing challenges like being blamed for housing shortages and new ones like whether to house rioters planning to storm the us capitol. Brian jesse is the ceo of airbnb in the wake of the january. Six insurrection in washington. Dc thought occurred to us and the thought was. Where are these people staying. And the next thought occurred us weight. People are gonna come back to dc and we said we're going to cancel all reservations for the weekend gration dc. That i think we learned the lesson a longtime ago that we have to take more responsibility because our product is in the real world and that's led to us having agreements with more than thousand cities around the world. I want to ask you about that. Actually because that is been that was sort of the other bubbling thing with airbnb. Is this relationship with cities and weather. Airbnb is partly to blame for the lack of affordable rentals as you sort of prepare for that part of the business to come back in force. How view rethought your relationships with cities and housing. I think kobe allowed everyone to take a breather. Think we got a bit of a reset and the relationship with some cities city started approaching us. Some actually said they wanted to get more demand because they said we have major budget shortfalls. Now we have major tourism shortfalls. So you think it's the kind of reset where cities were like. Oh we need you as opposed to you erin. Pnb have to do more to deal with the question of how things play. maybe not. They need us but they say oh. Maybe we can work together. I feel very optimistic about our ability. Have great relationships to cities. And i think the other thing that's going to happen travel. People aren't just going to travel the same fifty cities anymore. And that has had a way of redistributing travel to more communities because primarily. A lot of the conflicts are too many people one place at the same time. You've also said that you think this idea of digital nomads could be big people booking longer term stays do you think that could improve relationships with cities and neighborhoods too because people are not coming and going so quickly. Yeah i mean. I think the other trend is our businesses becoming less transient monthly. Rentals is one of the fastest growing parts of our business. But but i think the other shift is stays are going to be longer. And i think there's going to be this blurring of the line between traveling and living. It means that people a lot of people saying that they don't live anyone place anymore or they used to be. You live on place and you go one or two nights for a business meeting and like one or two weeks vacation now a world where you work from home means the world you can work from any home and so i think you're seeing people where i think i think three day weekends. We'll be every weekend for a lot of people. i think. Some people will take five day weekends. I think significantly more people will live in a different house over the summer than the house. They currently live in where they use in the same house. I think it'd be very normal for people to go to a different house for the summer. I mean it just makes by the way total sense. Why one would do that. And if you could say well how do they ford it where they can rent their house and they're gone so you can net it out. So these are things are going to happen but you're going to also have people. They're just purely nomadic. Maybe not people families but retirees and an empty nesters or you know young people single people people who like can move. I mean i always had a dream of like what. If i could go to like you know a different city every month in live there. This would be super interesting. Think about all the people you would meet all the connections you'd have By the way in this new world you can still stay connected. All the people used to know. So i think this is where travelers going. Travelling living blurring together

Elon Musk - The Man Behind Tesla and SpaceX

"Well who's elon. Musk well if you don't know you're gonna find out right now. There is so much news internet entertainment on ilan mosque. And i want to tell you that this is only the basics of aeon. Musk who he is. There is plenty to find out about him. I will leave some of the links and the show notes. So don't forget to look but who is elon. Musk and how does he lawns story began. Well he is a visionary entrepreneur and the co founder of paypal and tesla motors as well as the founder of the new space x program which is very popular to day his astounding success has given rise to comparisons to the uniqueness of howard hughes and the tenacity of a henry ford but he did have an often difficult childhood like most of us kids his own age made fun of him from his own descriptions the years were lonely and brutal alon is quoted as saying they got my best friend to lure me out of hiding so they could beat me up and that hurt. That's when i realized that they were going to go after me non stop. That's what made growing up difficult for a number of years. There was no respite. You get chased around by gangs. These gangs tried to beat the insert. Swearword here out of me. And then i'd come home and it would just be awful there as well but not all was wasted. This difficulty cultivated itself into a relentless work ethic a never ending tenacious vision of the future. You see enron was born and raised in south africa and he spent some time in canada before finally moving to the united states thin and the united states. He was educated at the university of pennsylvania. A very good school majoring in physics. That's when ilan started to excel and experiment to soon. Become a serial tech entrepreneur with early successes like zip to an x dot com. He took on two majors at the university of pennsylvania but his time there wasn't all work with a fellow student. He bought a tin bedroom fraternity house which they used as an ad hoc nightclub will. Musk graduated with a bachelor of science and physics at all as a bachelor of arts in economics from the wharton school for ilan. Physics made the deepest impression. He is again quoted as saying and somewhat giving directions to boiling things down to their fundamental truths and reason up from their. Musk was twenty four years old when he moved to california to pursue at phd in applied physics at stanford university with the internet. Exploding in silicon valley booming. Musk had entrepreneurial visions on his mind and dropped out of the physics program just after two days but in two thousand and four. Musk joined to engineers to help. Run tesla motors. You've all heard of tesla motors right. Well this is where. Musk was integral and designing the first electric car. There's no doubt the electric car is the car of the future. But his first car the he designed was the tesla roadster as we are all aware of the tesla has become one of the world's most popular and coveted car brands and is still growing in popularity in the united states and in many different countries tesla and the electric car are taking over but we must never forget about musk's early interest in reading philosophy science fiction and fantasy novels and how that played a big role. I mean a huge role in the inventor that he is today. It is reflected in his sense of idealism and concern with human progress. He aims to work in the areas he has identified as crucial to our future specifically the internet. The transition to renewable energy sources and space colonization and. Ilan has been all over the media. Making three podcast episodes on the joe rogan experience while the first one in which he smoked. Marijuana was pretty funny but in a maximum article. I found this elon. Musk's third appearance on the joe rogan. Experience podcast the genius. Tesla and spacex. Ceo did reveal intriguing plans for a floating tesla. Musk revealed that the long awaited second generation tesla roadster could have a space x package that would allow it to hover at a limited altitude above the ground. Something that we have never seen before with all these new inventions floating around. Is it any wonder why everyone is watching. And curious about ilan's next big thing. Well at tesla fans are awaiting the cyber truck which will make an appearance at the end of twenty twenty one and the exciting numbers are in for ilan's wealth elon. Musk started twenty twenty with a worth of about twenty seven billion dollars and was barely in the top fifty richest people then in july of twenty twenty. Musk past warren buffett. The great billionaire to become the seventh richest person in november. Musk raced past bill gates to become the second richest person. Musk has gained more wealth over the past twelve months then gates his entire net worth of one hundred and thirty two billion dollars and according to cnbc elon. Musk just became the richest person in the world. With a net worth of more than one hundred and eighty five billion dollars alone recently had a new marker for his wealth and that is so cool because of all his inventions and his time spent caring and wanting the united states and the world to move ahead has made a name for himself. There is no doubt an increase in tesla's share price pushed. Musk past jeff bezos of amazon. Who had been the richest person since two thousand seventeen. You see musk's wealth surge over. The past year marks the fastest rise to the top of the rich list and history but why because he is investing in the future. It marks a dramatic financial turnaround for the famed entrepreneur. Because he cares about what happens in our future so with all his wealth experimentation and knowledge elon. Musk is our future and for those. That are young enough to dream about being an elon. Musk it must start with your curiosity with reading and learning more and more about new and different things and that i want for you and your children now and in the future.

"Fledgling start up with just under three million in annual revenues last year after creating a global company with nearly three hundred million dollars in revenue was acquired by Zohreh DAS, the largest producer of medicine and vaccinations for pets livestocks for it was acquired for two billion dollars. Clint welcome and congratulations on a successful exit for your team and your investors. You're welcome. And it's a pleasure to be here. Let's start with your overnight success describe your journey at a backs when you joined what you went through to bring it to this. Great conclusion. Yeah. So when I joined the company it was about two point nine million in revenue. We had a six point seven million in losses. About half the products have been developed, and we had a going concern and our annual report, and this is after investing about fifty five million dollars in the company. So he had less than a year's cash left, and we were a public company so everything that went on was public and that was my challenge. So in looking around at shoe, how do you change this? How do you change this direction? It was clear that one of the big issues was people didn't seem to care and in finding out. Why don't the employee's? Here seemed to care about what's going on as far as the performance of the company. It was that their interests were not aligned with the interests of the company that was that was the fundamental problem, and they got paid the same. Whether the company did well or whether the company didn't do well, and they figured well. It's management's job to raise money. So if the company runs out of money, it's up to management to figure out how to get more money into the company. And so folks, we're not pulling in a in a direction that would lead any kind of success. So once I figured this out. I decided I need to align. The interests of the employees with the interests of the company and the shareholders and the customers, and so fundamentally what I did is I cut everybody's base pay significantly put in a bonus programme. Okay. That if we hit our objectives. Everybody would get twice what I took away back. And then we I let some folks even set their own pay combination of base and bonus. Got to set their own pay. If we hit the objectives. That's what they would get. And so went from nobody pulling in any direction to all of a sudden everybody pulling in the same direction because in order to hit their objectives their personal objectives. The company would have to hit its objectives. And of course, it changed the whole culture of the organization, and that was really the key to making all this happened. And did you lose any people in the process? Yeah. So in the beginning, I lost about half the company when I cut the pay I lost about half the company, but you know, what that was okay with me because those people really didn't believe and they walked with their with their feet. They didn't believe that we would ever hit the objectives. And they didn't think they'd ever get their money back and the ones that stayed were the ones that believed. And so yeah. So I ended up. Yeah. Kind of cleansing the company and keeping only the people that believed in what we were doing, and then we rebuilt from that point. And how did your I hadn't realized that was a public company at the time because you're really young company for being public. How did the board? How did you the board interact on all this kind of a change from what people are used to doing right? Yeah. So it was the board considered a very high risk strategy very high risk. And there was a lot of debate on the board about this approach. But in the end, they agreed that the old way certainly didn't work and that probably the only way to get the company into a position where it was self sustaining was to do some high risk stuff. And so yes, so eventually everybody came around, and we all pulled together now in doing that and one of the things that's also another picky area for me is the setting of objectives. So a lot of people are listening. This is the beginning of the year. They usually do it at the end of the year as you well now, and I'm nejra go into the year. You've got your objective set. But this is something that is timeless and how you set objectives. And as a company or as an organization how how did your planning your? Directive planning when did it begin? And how did you go about doing it? Yeah. So so it began so I joined in June and this whole process where I changed the pay structure and everything was completed in September October. And and so the fiscal year for a backs a bad time was ended March thirty first so April, I was aren't new fiscal here. And so as we got into the planning process for the new fiscal year, I asked all the department heads. What would you like to get out of this company over the next twelve months? What is your objective personally over the next twelve months, and I let them fundamentally set their pay. I said how much money do y'all wanna make how do you want your career to grow? What is it that you personally want and then everybody set what they wanted? And then I said okay now in order to achieve that this is. The performance the company would have to achieve to be able to afford to pay that. So then let's talk about what the what has to happen. In order for you to achieve what you want to achieve and that's how the planning started. And then the objectives rolled out of those discussions. Yeah. Once everybody knew what had to happen to be able to meet their personal objectives. We had everybody pulling in the same direction. Now, John Dore who's formerly the managing partner for Kleiner. Perkins has a book out now called okay, ours, objectives and key results. That's a program that he learned from Andy grove when he worked at Intel, and it's been used by Google number of other people now, and I haven't gotten through all of it yet. But I I grew up in the old Ambyo system. I like what I've heard about what you were doing in terms of starting with talking to people about what they want to get out of all of this. I think that's a great place to start and Dora Dora some of that as well apparently from the program that he's implemented. But he he disengages the objectives from compensation. Which I'm trying to myself figure out how you do that. You have any thoughts on that. Yeah. So the first question that came to me as we did our first planning meeting is the question was what has to happen in order for us to achieve what what we all want to achieve personally. And at that particular point in time, our gross margins were minus fifty percent. So I said guys the gross margins after at least break even over the next twelve months for you guys to achieve any of the things that you want to achieve. So that became the company goal in. I five minutes a company goal became break, the margins even so then the question was how do you do it? What part does the factory play? What part does the sales and marketing play what part is finance play. What part does HR play. And so we identified all the functions. Okay. That have to work together to make this happen. And then I asked my CFO at the time, you know, how long do you think it'll take? To break the margins. Even she said, oh, man. It's minus fifty percent. It's gonna take more than a year. Hold that thought we're gonna come back at him that you can tell us what how we're going to go to a break when we return we will continue with him and the secrets he learned along the way and growing the value of a healthcare start up to two billion dollars. This is Tom Lori. And this is the mentors radio. Hello. I'm Mike Lindell, the inventor of my pillow, and like all of you out there. I promise sleeping pillows would go flat.

"Thirty two billion dollars here to explain why is Bloomberg cross asset markets reporter, Eric lamb, thirty two billion, Eric what does it? So today, we're coming up on the ten year anniversary of the tainted milk scandal in China and thirty billion dollars figure is actually an estimate from Euromonitor for the size of the infant baby formula market in China. It could grow to thirty two billion over the next five years by twenty twenty three which really gives you a sense of the stakes that are involved in that market now at current currently, we're dealing with foreign producers versus domestic producers real battle right now for the hearts and minds of consumers in young parents. So what are foreign producers doing to build market share Howard, domestic producers fighting back? Yeah. The foreign producers certainly have an advantage because they're perceived to have higher quality products that are less risky for parents. And for companies like Nestle, which has seen their market shared quadruple since two thousand and eight in China. They're actually starting now to focus down on lower tier cities. So the smaller cities outside of the main regions, whereas a little more rural? There's a little more opportunity for growth, so looking at ways to for instance, develop ecommerce or better better supply their products to consumers, their meanwhile, the domestic producers are realizing that actually if they have some kind of brand association with foreign cows or production from outside of China that gives them a leg up and makes them a little more competitive. Yeah. So we saw one Chinese producer, for instance, brand itself as American dairy, right? What will it take to change the situation at what point do Chinese consumers come to believe in domestic producers again? The problem is for some memories are still still fairly fairly recent that they're just not to the point where they're willing to accept it. But over time that might change, right. Bloomberg cross asset markets reporter, Eric lamb. Thank you so much for.

"So let's ask him. Kevin. How are you? Great, george. Thanks. Yeah. In two thousand and two silver was four dollars an ounce near its cost of production. We predicted civil would rise to thirty dollars an ounce within ten years. People thought we were absolutely nuts. Nine years later, silver, hit forty eight dollars an ounce. We weren't so nuts anymore. No, not at all. So what made you so sure that the price was going to make such a big move. Well, let the time silver was trading near its production cost and industrial demand was absolutely skyrocketing. And why do you think one hundred dollar silver is possible now solar? In fact, China alone is expected to need an amount of silver equal to half of the global annual mining production. That's just China. The whole world is moving to China. Just recently California's now requiring all new homes to have solar panels. There's just not enough silver supply that kind of demand. So we're going to see a shortage. Kevin all I can say is that some smart people like J P Morgan has accumulated, the largest private stockpile of physical silver in the world more than one hundred and thirty million ounces that's over two billion dollars worth of silver. I'm sure they're not doing it. Because they expect the price to go down. No, I guess not but could silver reach higher than one hundred dollars an ounce. Well, if you just it for inflation, George silver would have to be about one hundred and thirty dollars an ounce to reach its all time. Time high. So we think one hundred dollars is well within reach one could that happen over the next seven to ten years. But we believe most of the games will happen over the next three to five years just hard to ignore the potential and silver right now. Kevin our listeners are passionate the of anything that you can set out to.
