Karpathy Talks Deep Learning, Elon Musk, FSD Beta, & Waymo Competition
"Our here and today we're going to be mostly talking about some takeaways from a recent interview of tesla's director of artificial intelligence. Enrique are happy on a podcast called the robot brains podcast which i willing to in the show notes. The whole conversation is about an hour and five minutes. I would highly recommend listening to all of it. I thought it was very approachable. And hopefully it helps set the stage for a conversation. We're going to have later this week. Quick look at the stock tesla today finished down one point two percent to six hundred and sixty two dollars sixteen cents not a bad day overall. Considering the nasdaq itself finished down. One point one percent are going into the carpet. The interview again great interview. I think it's super interesting in terms of timing right now because this is so current tesla's obviously working on the fasd beta right now. Andre did share some thoughts on that which we will get to you. I do wanna give a little bit of background though for people that aren't familiar with andres background so he has a history and education research again. A lot of notoriety in the field of artificial intelligence and specifically in deep learning. Because of his course at stanford about deep learning which was really the first of its kind and those lectures were also shared on youtube. Gained a ton of traction. There so andre was teaching that class at stanford got his phd. There after that he joined open. A i search scientist spent a couple of years there but at that point in his life he had been doing research for about a decade reading papers writing papers so he talks about that period of time in this interview and joining tesla saying quote. I was definitely getting a little bit restless. At that time i felt like these algorithms are extremely and can really move the needle on some very incredibly important problems in society. I wanted to take a more active role in doing that. So i was getting a bit restless. I was looking at different opportunities and say startups and things like that and then one thing that kind of happened on the side is because open at the time under the umbrella of ulan organizations few times we were interacting with people at tesla and i was kind of consulting a little. Bit for some of the problems and autopilot. I kind of realized that they were dealing with fundamentally a deep learning computer vision and this was the fundamental constraint to whether or not this product were work so i was kind of intrigued by that but it was just a few consulting opportunities here and there. I sorta spoke to the team. But at this time when i was getting really wrestles to apply this technology in the industry actually ilan reached out and asked me. Hey you've been sort of consulting for the team. Do you actually want to join and lead the computer vision team here and help get this car to drive. And so he taught me a very kind of correct time. When i was really getting restless and i feel like this is perfect and i think i can do this. I think i have the skill to contribute here. This is an incredibly impactful opportunity. And i love the company and of course i love yuan and everything that he's doing and so i would say that again was a moment stars align for me and i felt very strongly that this is the right thing to do at this time and quote so long quote there but i appreciated having that background. I've always kind of wondered if andres heart was really in the research realm and if you lon had kind of convinced him and pulled him away from that but that doesn't sound like the case from how hundred describes. He said that at that time when he made that decision to go to tesla he and his colleagues at opening i had joked around that he'd probably only make it about six months. And here we are four years later. I'm really happy about that. Because i think under just a perfect fit for this role. Not only does he have an incredible understanding of the technical challenges that tesla's facing but he also seems to have the right personality for it. He talked about working with yuan. Then also get into some of the technical stuff here in a second but he said quote. He's a double edged sword in terms of working with him because he wants the future yesterday and he will push people and he will inject a lot of energy and he wants to happen quickly. And you have to be of a certain. I think attitude to really tolerate that over long periods of time. But he's around some self with people who get energy out of that and also on the future to happen quicker. Those people really thrive at tesla. And so i happen to. Also i think be like that and so i don't personally mind it. I actually thrive on it and the energy of getting this to work faster and quote. I think this anecdote probably serves as a good reminder. That high turnover isn't necessarily a bad thing just by default you'll often see articles without a lot of data honestly being critical of tesla for having high turnover especially in management. But from the outside. It seems like they go through these cycles where they have a lot of turnover in short periods of time and then they find the person that's right for the role and also vice versa that the role is right for them and seems like those people tend to stick for a long long time better to have high turnover work through a number of different people and find the right person than to stick with the wrong person for too long anyway. The other salient point. That andre made about you on came about from a discussion on tussles hardware in the vertical integration. Andre said quote. I think to a large extent yulon sees ai as just a fundamental pillar of a lot of this technology and wants to invest in internal teams that develop a lot of this technology and co design. Everything tesla is definitely about vertical integration and squeezing a lot of juice from the benefits of that and quote. He continued on with that line of thought and mentioned co design. Three or four times. I think which is really one of the most important and special elements of tesla. This co design idea particularly how the organization is structured around that idea. Tesla's purpose built hardware chips for full self. Driving is obviously a great example of that structural batteries a great example of that before that you had super bottle than the octo valve the list just goes on and on and overtime continues to grow so pay very very close attention to that when andre says that you on sees a i as a fundamental pillar of a lot of their technologies we're still in the very early innings of that actually showing up in tesla's business are at so getting into some of his more technical comments than this is going to be a really long quote. I apologize for that. But i think it's a good primer. So he was asked. How would you describe deep learning to your parents. Andre says quote. Let's use a specific example. Because i think it's useful so let's talk about image recognition we have images images are made up to a computer of a large number of pixels and each pixel just tells you the brightness of the red green and blue channel at that point
The Even More Minimum Wage working at Olive Garden
"Back when she was in high school caroline. Zola was working at mcdonalds in houston texas trying to save money for college but all of her friends were working at other restaurants where they got tips. They got to lead every night with like cash and they would say. Oh my gosh i win and i made one hundred dollars on one night and i was like wow. She starts playing for su- positions and she gets hired at all guarded. I did go in with some sort of Blind optimism. And i was like oh this is so cool. Because they're so busy all the time it'll be it'll be great But it was a lot. It was a lot harder there than i had anticipated it to be part of why it was so much. Harder is because of olive garden is known for like if you know one thing about olive garden. It's the breadsticks unlimited breadsticks breadsticks forever. Overload and unlimited soup and unlimited salad. I think a lot of people don't realize that The servers olive garden. Make the salad and soup themselves which we need to have a party and people want different things they want extra this and this on the side it makes it very complicated you but the money could be good on busy days like the weekends. She can make twenty five dollars an hour but then there were the slow days if you're standing there and you're not getting any work not getting any tables. You just know that you're absolutely wasting your time. It's like oh man. it's very frustrating. For sure the worst part was customers who would leave next nothing tips or actually nothing when someone just disregards you by not leaving you anything it it is. It's hurtful like you know. Yeah after having looked you in the eye for exactly yes and smile with you and talk with you and kind of joke with you and then it's just like well i don't care how you bucci says it wasn't just the feeling of disrespect that bummed her out. It was also the fact that her entire financial wellbeing was completely dependent on these strangers. That's because olive garden was paying her. The federal minimum wage for tipped workers. Two dollars thirteen cents like that measly little like a handful of change to does and thirteen
Intel buys time with 'retrofit' Rocket Lake desktop PC chips
"Intel fully unveiled at seven th gen core desktop chips also known as rocket lake s these the cypress cove architecture which is at fourteen nanometer implementation of the willow cove architecture also used in ten nanometer tiger. Lick chips for laptops. That's important to note because the top of the line said in the gen desktop chip the core. I nine eleven nine hundred k. Has eight cores and sixteen threads which is to fewer occurs and four or fewer threads than the previous ten th gen flagship. The idea is that the more efficient architecture makes for up for the drop in cores in threads but until would like you to ignore all of that and pay more attention to instructions per cycle because those are nineteen percent better now and that's fair that's fair since most games don't use multiple cores anyway and the new top chip reaches up to five point three gigahertz on a single core until touted a fourteen percent improvement on flight simulator at ten eighty p even on multi core functions to- claims it's eighty eight percent faster than its last gen ed video editing and thirty five percent faster than is rising nine thousand nine hundred x so the independent benchmarks will be important. There are other advantages though. Potentially the eleven gen chips also address sizable bar which is a frame rate boost to compatible graphics chips from nvidia an md. You also get support for usb three point two john to by two thunderbolt four. Ddr four thirty two hundred ram and twenty gen four pci lanes new five hundred series.

Inside Biden’s $1.9 Trillion Stimulus Bill
"Start right there with a pass of that. Covid stimulus bill in the senate on saturday night. I do need to preface this by saying it does have to pass the house again because there were some changes made by the senate so it's not passed into law just yet but we'll go for what this bill will include when it goes through the house and i'm going to try my best to sound like i'm not rattling off just a bunch of dollar amounts but there's a danger. It might sound like that but just bear with me. There might be something in there that would be useful for you. Your family someone. So for helping the unemployed it extends that three hundred dollars a week plus the state unemployment end it makes the first ten thousand two hundred dollars of that non taxable for households making less than a hundred and fifty thousand dollars it also fully funds cobra. Health insurance premiums so that employees who have been laid off can remain on their employer plan for free. There's also going to be another round of checks fourteen hundred dollars for a single taxpayer. Twenty eight hundred couples indy. Get fourteen hundred dollars per dependent now the starts to taper off at seventy five thousand for individuals or one hundred and fifty thousand dollars for couples ended completely gets phased out at eighty thousand dollars for a single tax payer and one hundred and sixty thousand dollars for a couple it gives state and local governments three hundred fifty billion dollars to cover expenses related to covid through twenty twenty four gives schools one hundred and thirty billion for k. Through twelve in forty billion dollars for colleges and that's to help them reopen safely so parents can get back to work for businesses. they'll be twenty five billion dollars going to restaurants and bars. This max out at ten million dollars per company in five million dollars per location additionally there will be seven point two five billion for the paycheck protection program once again forty. Six billion dollars will be going to state local and federal governments to help with testing and contact tracing as well as fourteen billion dollars to help speed up. The vaccine distribution for healthcare there will be financial assistance for aca affordable care act premiums and this is just looking to get the number of people covered by insurance to increase into further incentivize. The south to expand medicaid since they're sort of the holdouts town there. The republicans are blocking that there are also increases in tax breaks to parents who have kids up to three thousand dollars per kid if their age six to seventeen and thirty six hundred dollars per kid if they're under six years old and that spread out over the twelve months according to analysis this plus the fourteen hundred dollar check would cut the number of kids in poverty by more than half. In addition there's changes to the earned income tax credit for this year in extends to people without children. And if you're looking for how much that would be for low to moderate income folks. It'll be somewhere between five hundred and forty three dollars in one thousand five hundred and two dollars. Lastly in the rental and homeowner category it gives thirty billion dollars to help low income and unemployed folks afford rent and utilities and at the state level states and tribes get ten billion dollars per homeowners. So all in all. I think thing that really struck me. Was this tweet that i saw saying that. Isn't it kind of crazy. That biden asked for a one point nine trillion dollar stimulus deal and he got a one point nine trillion dollar stimulus deal like i think that makes biden a pretty good politician. One of the main criticisms of obama was at he started out by compromising with republicans and gave them the compromise offer in the first place instead of starting out high. You can't say that for biden so far in this could be a sign of good things to come but like. I said they're hoping that this gets signed into law by the end of the week after the house passes it sometime this week.

The Two Target Ointments I Can't Live Without
"Hey kate dory. I have to recommendations for you and your listeners. Number one this target brand baby healing appointment is generic for aquaphor and about two dollars. Cheaper her tube at the under five dollar price point i feel like i can golob on every night. Great recommendation a of generic number two. I am loving bloody knuckles ball. As a hand moisturizer it is marketed to men. Hence the awful name but it is unscented and not greasy. I purchased the travel size for five ninety nine to be sure i liked it. It's in the men's care section at target. Oh this person had a fruitful shopping trip. Recently seriously at target i will say it. Is i find it so annoying. When men's putting men's and quotes like grooming products that are targeted to men. Have these like ultra macho names. Yes so annoying. it's so gendered and stupid and the same should go products that are targeted to a fem audience as well oh for sure for sure all of it all of it drives me
GameStop and the Short Squeeze
"Okay stacey so when you imagine that we are squirrels okay okay. An through the fall you being very responsible squirrel have been squirreling away loads of nuts for the winter. Okay all right now. I have to but i've also been keeping an eye on the weather and i'm pretty convinced that there's gonna be a nut surplus this winter and there's gonna be a lot of nuts on the market this would be the squirrel nut market precisely. Okay okay not all the other. Squirrels are responsible as you and me a lot of them. Leave it to the last minute to stock up and you end up with these shortages and consequently these very long lines at the nut highs. I think we're definitely already there. I think there are long lines at the house batting bludger with me like i say i think there's going to be a surplus of nuts this year right for whatever reason and that means i think prices are going to fall and i want to bet on that price movement which means that i won't to short the market so you're going to bet against the market for nuts as a squirrel that is exactly right. That literally sounds nets me all right so right now mixed fancy unsalted nuts. Ten bucks can't squirrels. Net of choice. Fancy unsalted nuts. Okay and i think the price of the of that collection of nuts is going to go lower and so to set up my short. The first thing that i do is go to someone who's got a load of nuts and is willing to lend me a pint or two and that person is you okay so now you are wanting to borrow my nuts that i saved. That's right and as a little fee to sweetened things. I'll give you an acorn all right okay. I'm in. I'm in so let's start with a one point bag just to see. Okay all right all right all right now. I take that point of nuts and i go to the market and sell it for ten dollars right which leaves me with a nice crisp ten dollar note and then we wait for a day or two and we wait look at that. The prices fallen Not sir eight dollars a pint okay. So you sold a pound of nuts for ten bucks and now they're worth eight bucks. That's right so i'm going to buy them back at that rate right but by them for eight dollars and of course it means i get some change from my ten dollar note. Yes you're two dollars in the black. That's exactly right so now. I've got that pint of knots which i returned to you as promised excellence and i've got two dollars of my own which i get to keep okay. So that is a successful short. That is a successful short. Okay that is great but what happens if the price goes in the other direction. Let's say you are wrong about the value of nuts this winter. Maybe there's a supply shortage price of nuts goes through the roof and suddenly like let's say all of a sudden it's like twelve dollars a pound of nuts if gustav twelve dollars out of luck right because i have to. I've got to get those nuts back to give them back to you. So i'm going to dig in my own pockets for those two dollars to make twelve dollars to get your nuts back and that means i'm going to take a two dollar loss at the whim of supply and demand except the sometimes it's not the law of supply and demand that drives the market. I mean take. This company game celebrate. This is a company that has a bunch of brick and mortar stores that sells video and computer games. It's like it's been it's under a lot of pressure like a lot of other retailers are right now which is probably why you know. Analysts have been a little skeptical about the price of its stock. Exactly supply and demand was not what drove that price up. What happened was he had a bunch of people who got together in chatrooms and these are like a lot of the day. Traders now the traditional short-selling squirrels but like another group. No or even the regular trading. So we don't know who these people are. They hang out and chat rooms and they call themselves. Things spelt pants and proto molecular. I mean we don't know who they are they could be chipmunks so basically there is sort of the traders and you can kind of rely on what they're doing and why they're trying to anticipate the prices of stocks and other things going down and then you have this other group and we're not sure who they are or what they want. Well i think a lot of them wanna make money right. And i think a lot of them. Want to put the screws to shortsellers. They just hate shortsellers. They hate and shortsellers have been betting for some time. That game stop. Stock will drop. But there's also kind of a populist thing happening here with a lot of these traitors judging by the reddit threads that they just wanna poke in middle finger at wall street. They're not the first. They're not the first and then of course all these other people who are just trading for kicks right. I mean they see the price of the stocks go up and in many cases they wanna be part of that and some of them even want to buy it the high take they want those bragging rights and what they do is to start this kind of frenzy. They spread rumors in these chatrooms. They get all fired up. And then they wait till the stock pumps and then they're also chasing it upwards and onwards and upwards which brings us to the short squeeze yes the short squeeze. What is the short squeeze. Yeah you see so when the price surges like this it means for shortsellers like me because we remember have to buy back the stalker nuts or whatever it is that we've sold in order to return them to the people who lead them to us to you me right so when we start to see prices going up and up and up frankly we start to panic right because you are going further and further into the red exactly right. Nah we're all rushing into the market to buy stock around not so whatever before the price gets too high and wipes a site and we're all doing it at the same time. Which of course drives the price even higher. All these people buying your literally being squeezed. You are literally being squeezed. I mean imagine this like a hole in a trunk and you call one hundred short-selling squirrels rushing to get through the whole stale at the same time. While the whole is getting smaller bloodbath.

The Cut Throat War To Dominate China's Grocery Delivery Industry
"Speaking of china. You had a great story on. I didn't i mean who knew this. This is why. I love rest of world because we're learning about stuff that the cutthroat war dominate china's grocery delivery industry is there a grocery delivery industry in china. I'm kind of. I don't know why i'm surprised to hear that. Yes so follow me for a second. This is a really crazy model. That like a hundred million people plus china right now. So it's really big and it's really really and it's attracting sort of like grandma's almost like aunties You know people are really price conscious so imagine you have a group chat and all of your neighbors or that group chat and you have sort of like you know maybe a local state home mom or someone you know. Maybe the corner store owner Someone who owns a seven eleven and they are the moderator of that group chat every single day they give you some grazie deals for fresh food and all you do is in that group chat. Say what you and the next day the stay at home. Mom we'll get it all delivered to her place and then she'll bring it to you or you go pick it up at the corner store. So they're called group buying groups so she gets everything and then parcells it out to her neighbors the like uber or d. Which is the over of china is invested in this every ten cent. Jd dot com alibaba. All the biggest tech companies are investing in this all over the place. It's a huge frenzy. Just sort of like get all these people because cheer point. These are people who didn't usually virus online. They were just go to the corner store and get stuff previously but what this is doing is leading all those big tech companies. Cut a ton of costs. They get marketing from the stay at home mom. They get logistics. they don't have to go to each person's home right the stay at home. Mom will take care of that for them. So the money to right she gets she gets about five ten percent commission so she's incentivized to get as many people as possible most of these people. Have you know anywhere from a couple hundred to nine hundred. She's all that are managing. It's huge or that and it can be can be a big source of business for them and it's a crazy trend in china and it's become really really wild actually two employees at one of the companies that his invested in this actually died Recently which sort of set off this huge reckoning about like you know are they pushing employees too hard at these companies you know is this frenzy worth it. The government is mad about it. But i love it because it's like stay at home. Mom selling vegetables by everyone in tech is just all over themselves over it. Well as you out It's a in. The article is highly customized. Because this one person who is managing this group note gets to know everybody their interests their tastes what they want what they don't like so it works. It works really well. I have to say come on. If you're like cute little neighbor texas everyday and it was like sale on. Carrots are totally doing. Yeah fifty cents. Bundled carrots come grabbed them tomorrow with your eggs and your milk or whatever. Of course i would do it. This model could work in the rest of the world. I think that. Like when i think about someone like my mom who's like knocking to navigate. Instacart knows how to use. I message the thing is that it's integrated into chat right and we don't really have each year in the same ways. I think we're sort of far off. But i do think you know this super-charged by the pandemic there are way more people anger. She's online than there used to be. And i think that instacart is ripe for disruption. I think like you know whole foods. Delivery is not doing anything particularly Innovative and i think even amazon and these logistics giants are still really struggling with how to make a profit off of this and these chinese companies sort of figured out a way to do it although to be fair. They're offering really really low prices because he's really price conscious consumers and suppliers or getting mad. Because they're like selling a bottle of cooking oil for like less than the actual cost to make it so there are a lot of sort of reminds me of when it was like two dollars. Take an uber anywhere. Because they were just pouring money on it and get a fifty percent off lift ride. If you just open the super happen the lift up notice that you were doing that. We all remember. That's it feels like that. Yeah so i do worry it. Sort of gimmicky.

Insider Info with Annie Kreighbaum and Nick Axelrod-Welk
"Our guest today are anti creek bombs. And nick axelrod welk anne neck i love. I love a duo on the podcast. Welcome thing so excited to be here so let me let me give a little. A little highlight with your bio. Anne is a beauty journalist turned exac and former brand lead for glossy and nick is a former reporter for l. and wwe which is women's wear daily correct. Yes it is there. Were these things called. Newspapers that we used to read would get delivered every day. It was the fashion newspaper. Like the most. I one of the most iconic fashion newspapers i would say and you are also the co founder of the personal brand. Excuse me personal care brand. Necessar- said that right. It's been awhile since i've taken french. And you co founded the iconic beauty site into the gloss and together. They co host eyewitness beauty which is a beauty and pop culture. Podcast available wherever you get your podcast. You guys to focus on the business side of beauty. And i'm curious with this question. I'm not even i'm wondering if it's even possible for there to be trends in beauty in twenty twenty one when when the beauty is feels like the world has kind of just been uprooted or or changed by this pandemic but what are some trends that you are are seeing that you're seeing and that you like for yourself well on the kind of inside baseball cy. But sure it's not news to anyone like you describe yourself as like more of like a novice like outsiders which i think you're an expert than you give credit for it. But but for since the since they started tracking this stuff color cosmetics which make up products. I don't need to explain to anybody. Listening with that. Means has been like the category that's been consistently the number one revenue driver for any like big brand just for the industry in general like like the biggest challenge of the pie. I don't know what color cosmetics is so that's basically when you walk into a sephora and you're you're the first thing you see is makeup skin care is in the back of the store and the fragrances at the back of the wall like. That's all intentional. In order of sales. Yeah oh lord was at a certain point. Yeah learning okay okay. yeah so. The industry is is sliced up. Land like hair care. Skin care whatever color. Cosmetics has been like since the dawn of time like the number one biggest category billions of billions of dollars. Will just last year skin care has taken over which hilly coming from my glossy and like kind of seeing that wave happen. I think it really started with k beauty coming into the us people on the internet. We're getting much more educated around like ingredients and different. There's going team. I think like the trend has been going on for quite some time. But just last year. I think with the pandemic And people being at home and having to diy more skin care. And i think too like people understanding like actually. I don't need to see a dermatologist. For every little thing. I can exhausted. Leasings myself Skin-care has overtaken. So i think that that's gonna continue for sure in like the entrance of all these mid to lower mid range brands in terms of price point like the ordinary or the inky list or natori like things that could all of a sudden by acid For ten dollars versus what happened probably five years ago which is either the hydraulic. Acid is from lemaire and it's two hundred and fifty dollars or they're probably wasn't even one you could buy in the drug store so i think that they're just exists now category of product. So that you know what like with makeup. You could buy ten dollar lipstick to get the same idea as a forty dollar up stick Same relative color now with skin care. You can sort of do the same thing. Okay so many so many questions. So i wanna i ask you because you mentioned this sensation of going into sephora and everything is so deeply intentional and i know it's the same with marketing and packaging and in thinking about like price points getting lower. Our is the quality of products the same so much of beauty just like markups and exclusivity and making something sound fancy and getting it in the hands of like victoria beckham or is there a true difference in quality so one anecdote i have. Is that one time someone told me in this completely rocked my world. That lemaire is made in long island and and that sort of says it all like you know. It's a cream with some like plankton. In it or you know no seaweed. I guess and it's made long island and they call it. Lum creme de la mayor and it's three hundred dollars Is that does that mean that. There's two hundred dollars worth of ingredients in there. No one hundred fifty. No one hundred fifty eight okay. So for context like the markup degree product but for a healthy cosmetics company business in general the markup on cosmetics from the goop and the packaging is eighty percent margins. So a two dollar what it cost you two dollars to make gold charge ten dollars for and that's like standard across the industry and you can't really knock a cosmetics company for doing that because they are so so cheap to make and to have investors to be able to pay the bills to be able to make this something that can really support a team and you know whatever and like grow a business. That's just industry standard so like. I don't think anybody's pulling the wool. Over consumers is this markup rate on the fashion. It's like some pence fifty percent or less of a markup. So that's i kind of a comparison. I forgot like what other interesting. I was about to say it. But i'm sure nick has a million. Well well yeah it's not. It's not an evil thing. The markup i think there's so many more there's so many more costs testing everything saying what's the difference between something that's like super expensive versus something. That's like a little bit more accessible. I do think that there's a huge difference. I mean i think what the ordinary did is like very interesting. And i still think they make like a lot of great products in general but you kinda of see like the texture of putting on like the heireann sierra and from the ordinary that costs you six dollars versus like one that has more ingredients in it from like a. I don't even know if they have one and playing with taught harper. Like it's this absorbs into skin better doesn't leave sticky feeling. Where's better under makeup. Like might smell nicer. These are all things that you have to consider. Its except for some people. It's worth paying for for others. It's not worth it and they'd rather just by the seven dollar one so okay so this leads me to my next question. Which is i'm kind of obsessed with this idea of dupes especially when it comes to here and makeup like and candles but not all. Dupes are really dupes. I kind of get into this. Like spiral do you believe. Dupes are real as possible to have a troop in skin care or makeup products. I think it's rare. There's certain things that you can charge more money. For the candle you can afford like a fragrance concentrations get a more powerful fragrance certain synthetics that are really expensive like amd brett Which is a mosque. like an animal derived. it was an animal derived. Musk now it's all Made in the lab But that is like a really expensive thing to create. So that's why a lot of like less expensive candles expensive fragrances. Don't have that smell

Bitcoin tops $40,000 for first time, pushing cryptocurrency market value past $1 trillion
"Bitcoin has quadrupled in price in just the past couple of months from ten thousand dollars per coin to forty thousand dollars yesterday and the crypto market in its entirety is now worth over a trillion dollars. There's a few probable reasons for bitcoin spiking so much but the main reason is this the first rally was all about small investor fomo but the second rally is all about big investor from retail fomo three years ago corporate fomo today for example square the payment processing company. They just bought fifty million dollars. Bitcoin just in october famous hedge fund run by a man named paul jones has had two percent of all their asset is now in bitcoin and boston. Favourite finality is now accepting bitcoin as collateral for loans. I'll tell you i'm good for it. Got bitcoin in the back. So jack what's the takeaway for our buddies over in bitcoin. Bitcoin has one main superpower and that is anti inflation all right because he can't trap a fraction of a bitcoin to pay for a smoothie. Right now and it's probably like a little too volatile fairmont and just like the retail fomo of three years ago this corporate morality that could pop and crash and plummet as well keep in mind. I mean jack toussaint in two thousand seventeen. The value of bitcoin crashed almost ninety percent. Right after a jump. Like this if you bought at the top of that bubble you experienced a lot of pain in the next two months but there is a fascinating real value in bitcoin right now which isn't as a currency but actually just to protect against inflation smackers because of the global pandemic governments across the world are printing money to pay for stimulus packages to rescue the economy. So we get cash flowing into the financial system all in hopes of juicing up the economy right now all that new cash though could dilute away the value of the money in that country. And that's the inflation. When like a one dollars orange could eventually cost you two dollars because your money is actually worth less. Because there's too much money out there now. Inflation like nick. Just describe with the oranges and the dollars that is not possible with bitcoin because there are a finite number of bitcoin that could ever be mind in this earth so similar goals the protection against inflation is bitcoins superpower we think that's why corporations and institutions are buying bitcoin right now

"Because it. Knows everybody else wants to beat at its own game. So it's got to try to try to four fights. It's also it's a game of media chicken, basically, because I don't I don't think NBC launching their own service is going to really amount to much. It's this stuff is coming way too late. I look at like CBS all access which is a problematic service for many reasons. Mainly because I don't think you really get much aside from great Star Trek Star Trek discovery, which is very good. And you get the good fight. But really what else what else is going on CBS people really want to subscribe to watch. They've got more coming, but they launch the service before they have the content other than CBS reruns. I did watch a whole season of survivor on there. But that was just buoyant. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. You your hand just slipped. But I've talked a lot of Star Trek fans who refuse to pay that is at ten dollars a month or so it's like between eight to ten I think ten without ads, but people who would normally die for Star Trek content or refusing to pay for the service. So at that point who are you who you really serving right by keeping this really, you know, a great show, a genuinely good show cordoned off on this thing that not many people want to pay for. I don't know what what is NBC going to have a Disney at least has like all their franchises. They'll be fine. I don't know how how many of these other services. Can you know survive the sort of thing, right? That's that's going to be a big test. Right. Is Warner media decides that they are going to do the Harry Potter TV show or something like that? Like will that be enough to get Harry Potter fans to pay for a service? And that's the eventually when you're paying for five services that calculation starts to break down. I think that's where I got to is. It's the extra. Two dollars a sucker because I'm on the thirteen ninety nine of on Netflix, just because I was traveling one day, and I wanted to download stuff and I'd already downloaded somewhere else before cage, crtv. So I'm paying for it. Right. And so it's not the two dollars for Netflix. Happy pay. I see as a contribution to the content of creating. But it made me question ever females some paying for because I when he was, you know, seven nine thousand nine whatever it was when the years ago. You kinda like to your point is a coffee, right? I'm not going to think about it that way, but I'm still paying for cable. I haven't cut the cord yet. And so now, I'm like, okay. So I have fire TV I have this. I you know, how many things I'm entering paying for and a lot of it. There's overlap right? So I might do a weakened in sit down and come to look at you know, is it worth just cutting the cord and Getty, bro, bend. But that's the big thing. And I think we discussed this once before on the show that for a lot of people that rely on high speed internet like a gig like coming to to the office. His bundled din. You don't see if you try and get away from the TV, then is when they really really Skyrock ever prices and make you pay for it. So yeah, I will have to do some math and figure it out. But I agree with we what was said that the content that you getting from Netflix is still were why the extra two dollars. It'd be interesting to see what happens when when people comes in being an apple home when it comes to devices we mostly use kid and so forth.

"See I was adding two dollars the bellboy pocketed. That's that's out of the equation here. I I'm adding the three they got back to come up with thirty. If you're trying to come up with the price of the room three men times nine equals twenty seven minus the to the bellboy kept equals what the twenty five dollar price of the room. But see all I have to do is add two dollars when I should have. Subtracting two or adding to when I should have been adding three, and frankly, I can stump CPA sometimes for an hour. Isn't that amazing? Well, why do I bring this up because those same CPA's and tax attorneys as I teach advanced continuing education, I'm asking them. So why do you recommend to your clients that they sock away money in traditional IRA's and 4._0._1._K's well because you have one hundred hundred dollars working you get to use pretax money, and that will grow to the mouse. And I go, you know, what you don't choose investments based on which ones grow to the most you choose a retirement investments based upon which ones generate the most at the time in life. You're going to be using the money the most net after subtracting taxes and inflation, see it's like the fisherman's riddle. They're adding up there telling you. Our clients to choose the best investments based on which one adds up to the most they're adding without subtracting. They should have been subtracting the effective taxes and inflation when they do that they realize there is no difference between a traditional IRA and 4._0._1._K and a Roth IRA or 4._0._1._K if tax rates stay the same. But they go. Well, we've always told them that they'll likely be in a lower tax bracket when they retire, and I go so does your client really believe that do your clients really believe future tax rates are going to be lower. No, do they think they're going to be the same. No. How many things are going to be higher one way or another and they go, well, they do and they're actually in his higher tax brackets when they retire is when they earned money, even if they have less income, and I asked the CPA's why is that? Why do schoolteachers have as much in tax liabilities or as high or higher tax bracket? Even if they have less income in retirement, it's because they've been going down the highway with one foot on the gas pedal and the other foot on the brake pedal. And they didn't know they were doing it. They were killing their deductions along the way, they were deferring deferring and thinking they were going to be in a lower bracket, and then they killed their deductions with one foot on the brake pedal, they pay off their house, and and the kids are now gone, or if they're not gone you can't deduct him anymore, and they're not contributing in retirement to IRA's 4._0._1._K's four zero three Bs tax sheltered annuities and congress keeps raising taxes because they keep spending too much money. And so they're not in a lower bracket. So if you're a good fiduciary, you're supposed to look after their best interest was it in their best interest to defer, defer.

"Two dollars and seventy eight cents last Friday down to two dollars and fifty cents tomorrow and will continue to fall to about two bucks over the next ten days or so in low tax states, he says closed sharply lower. Crude oil prices and declining wholesale prices will force prices at the pump much lower prices fell about six cents last week, but are still twenty seven cents higher than a year ago. But it looks like we're going to start to catch up pretty soon. It's good news. Save a little dough at the pump up election days tomorrow, but judging by the early voting numbers, it's going to be a record breaker at least in terms of voter turnout. More than thirty million. Americans have taken advantage of early voting to cast their ballots A record number four of midterm election. Nearly five million Texans in the states, thirty biggest counties. They voted Friday's early voting deadline more than the entire state wide turn up in the last midterm election in two thousand fourteen Florida voters were headed for record to with about four million votes. Cast by late last week. Enormous numbers have been recorded in Tennessee, Nevada in Georgia. Nobody knows which way these votes are going right now, but the final pre election polls indicated deeply divided electorate. The NBC news Wall Street Journal poll suggests Democrats will perform best with minorities young voters college educated voters and women while Republicans will get more votes from white voters without a college degree men and white voters. Overall, Democrats appeared to have the edge with fifty seven percent saying that they would prefer a Democratic Party controlled congress compared to forty three percent who would prefer a Republican majority. But again, you got to look at the source. NBC news Wall Street Journal, let's who conducted this particular poll, but I think everybody can agree that voter turnout appears to be headed for record levels. Whether you're a Republican or democrat pretty clear that neither party is taking the midterm elections for granted over the weekend. Both President Trump and former President Obama on the campaign trail stumping for candidates in a number of violent racist, very close races. President Trump lays up when he sees as the difference between Democrats and Republicans. So more caravans, and you want more crime vote democrat. It's very simple. Have you watched strong voters and safe communities vote? Republican Trump.
