INTERPOL Warns People About Counterfeit Coronavirus Vaccines
"I took a year when the distribution of vaccines is so important. The international police organization has a serious warning also known as interpol. They're cautioning people about the dangers of counterfeit vaccines stacey vanik smith and cardiff garcia from our daily economics. Podcast the indicator from planet. Money wanted to find out more about this and so they took a trip into the dark web. The cova crisis has created a whole universe of opportunity for criminals fear and scarcity and high demand are very powerful market forces. china anderson has been watching these forces. Play out for months. He's a senior security researcher at domain tools. Were a cyber threat intelligence data company so we scan the entire internet as many times began every single day and give insights to customers based upon what we see and part of the whole internet is the so called dark web. That's the unregulated. Part of the web. Were a lot of illegal activity happens. Like what is the dark web like. There's many things when people talk about the dark way that most of the time what people are referring to is anonymous services illegal forums or illegal marketplace's illegal marketplaces where you can buy drugs or weapons or passports or cova vaccines so now starting to see some coronavirus vaccines you know looking at. Maybe two hundred different ads here. So can you read us some of the ads that you've found. Let me pull one up. I'm looking at here so You know the as ten covid. Nineteen vaccines The prices re thousand two hundred and seventy six euros. That's about four thousand. Us dollars so about four hundred dollars per vaccine. Yeah and for the record. Chad does not think that these vaccines are legit for one thing. The pfizer vaccine requires a very intense cold storage chain. The vaccines have to be kept at negative seventy degrees fahrenheit and also the kobe vaccine ads are mixed in with ads for all kinds of other things and chances that tends to be a red flag. Since we're in the sees you scroll up in there's cocaine You know scroll down. You've got your airline and You know molly matthew name it ashwell as you know. This site has firearms chances. The global cova crisis has been a massive opportunity for cybercriminals he says the online marketplaces are still a tiny part of it right now and most of the criminal activity has involved ransomware chad's because lives are at stake and there's so much chaos and now criminal organizations know that if they hack into the system of hospital they can demand and probably get a lot of money back in october. One hospital in new jersey paid cybercriminals more than six hundred and fifty thousand dollars after the criminals locked up their computer systems and threatened to publish all of their patient records. Chad expects that these kinds of attacks will become more frequent in coming months because after all the payoff for those kinds of attacks are much bigger than a couple thousand dollars for the covid vaccines. Although chad also expects the vaccine market place will continue to grow on the dark web. Stacey smith cardiff garcia. Npr news
The Birth Of The Greenback
"Stacey next. Jacob Feldstein. Planet money author of money the true story of amid up during a new book. Say I. brought props for us to do the indicator. I say. That's been months. It's been. That guy's been honking hall eight months. I have props came over so I could give you these troughs. Okay. Go ahead and look at them. All right. Okay. So, this is like a really high quality xerox of an old piece of money. THREE DOLLAR BILL RE dollar bill that's really a real thing. There's like a a lady standing next to in like a ball gown standing next to a cow to I chose a cow to pander to you I do love a cow keep going. Okay. The Orange Bank It's orange because this from the orange. Bank and this is a one dollar bill. So Stacey, these are reproductions of real paper money that was printed by private banks in the United States in the eighteen forties and fifties. This is one of the most interesting periods I found in the history of money when I was working on my book, it's this moment when the United States government did not print money, there was in fact, no single national paper currency but if you wanted to. Open Up Stacey's Bank of New York and print your own paper money. You could. I don't know if I would trust that dollar from that. Was a real problem that was a real problem we'll get to that. I. Mean they were just so many different kinds of money at one point the Chicago Tribune counted eight, thousand, three, hundred, and seventy different kinds of paper money in America. This sounds very confusing for everyone involved this indicator from planet money. I'm Stacey Vanik Smith and Jacob. Goldstein can we make eight, thousand, three, hundred and seventy, the indicator? Yes. Today on the show. How can you even have that many kinds of money and also just what does it tell us about money works? Let's just go. Let's just go a block away to get away from the horn. Yeah.

So can we should set the scene here Jacob the nineteenth century America lots of is apparently also this was the era when gold and silver were money and Jacob say in the book that the government minted gold and silver coins, but it did not make paper money at that time. The exactly right. So the only paper money in America was printed by all of these different. Private banks people called paper money in fact banknotes, right. So they thought of it as like a piece of paper from a bank and they thought of paper money in particular as like a receipt or a coach ticket as as a thing that you could substitute for gold and silver, and in fact, if you look at at the bills I gave you all have this kind of. Writing like just grab a different one for fun. So we can say what it looks like. Okay. This is the stoning ten bank, a two dollar bill. There's a way. Moby Dick or something Wail Bell we've cow Bill Wail Bill So okay. So now look at the cursive writing see the cursive they're just blowers is stoning to. Two dollars to the bear on demand right and if you look all these different bills are different colors, they have different pictures on them, but they all say that will pay how ever many dollars to the on demand and so the second interest. Yeah it's an Iou because the interesting thing is it's telling you the paper money is not the real money. Right? They're saying we will give you two dollars in gold and silver for this paper money right? So the real money in this world is the underlying gold or silver the paper is just like. The Standard. So this is a time in history when there's not federal bank, there's not a national bank. There's like thousands of of little local banks and I guess all these banks can issue their own money. That's right and it's kind of evolving in this period at the beginning of this ehre the eighteen thirties. If you wanted to open a bank, typically you had to go to your state legislature and get special approval. Basically, they had to pass a special law that would let you open your bank and this was problematic because I was super corrupt essentially. Bank and print money. Then you're gonNA bribe whoever you have to. Say all the knee. All due respect to get them to let you open your bank. Right. So around eighteen forty, a little earlier, this new idea became popular. The new idea was called free banking. And the idea of free banking was anybody who is willing to follow a few basic rules could. Take and start printing money and literally start printing money and you know not surprisingly a lot of people wanted to print money. This is how we get eight thousand different kinds of money. Yes. How do you know if the bill that someone's handing you is real money or if it's literally just a piece of paper from the First Bank of Stacey Vanik Smith which might be real money. I wouldn't. Maybe. Add bribed senator so I love this so there arose in response to this problem these special periodicals Magazines that were privately published called banknote reporters. And what they were was these lists in tiny font of every kind of money. So I actually have a reproduction here another prop from a page. This one was called. Thomson's Bank note. Reporter. K.. So the people who subscribe to this merchants people who need to accept money. So so let's just say I'm running a bar and I got my thompsons bank note reporter and I come in I need a drink who thirsty I'm thirsty. So okay. So the page of the bank note reporter I printed out is for Orange Bank. Okay. Okay. So have that bill right here it is and it's a one dollar bill. So I find Orange Bank here in my Bengal reporter and it says Okay Orange Bank listed different bills and says ones and under wants it describes what the bill is supposed to look like says to horses check. Hey, Cart Jack Blacksmith shop male portrait Jack Girl. Check. So it's at least plausibly real. The reporter also tells me something else that's important and that explains a lot about how many works at this time. Typically would tell me whether I should accept that paper money at full face vowed I can buy my dollar whiskey with this whether you can get your dollar whiskey because remember what we care about is whether I can turn in that paper money for gold or silver, and so if the bank is shaky or even if it's just really far away. You know the reporter might say, just knock five cents off the dollar give Stacey Ninety five cents worth of whiskey instead of a dollar that took a really long time to buy that we ski. It does seem like it would have been absurdly inconvenient right and for a long time when people look back at this period, the basic story of free banking was just that was a horrible idea like that many kinds of money right but. Much, later, like in the nineteen seventies. This generation of economic historians started going back and looking more closely. At the banks and how money works in this period and what they saw when they really went through the numbers was basically like it wasn't that bad Bankston go bus that often people didn't usually lose much money when they used. We're you overall they would lose like a few percent which is. Kind of like what you pay today. So when you take money out of the weird off Brand ATM at. The corner store. which I always do. Yeah, I. Mean. That's basically like the the bartenders giving you ninety cents for your dollar when you do that, right? So. Obviously, we do not have eight thousand different kinds of money now this ended and it ended after the civil war. Yeah was the civil war. So during the civil war, that old American argument of can we have national banks or not came up again and Congress passed a few important banking laws. One of them basically taxed all those thousands of kind of state banknotes out of existence, and then the other one created these new national banks that printed much more reliable, much more uniform paper money. It's interesting because I mean, this was obviously after the civil war was the time when the United States went from like a collection of. To One Country, and it seems like the same thing happened with currency maybe not a coincidence. Your I mean, there is this idea at least in the modern world money is part of what makes a country a country and I think you do see that happening at this moment in the united. States when we go from thousands of kinds of money toward one uniform kind of paper money I'm just sad we lost the cow bills. Because you know Jacob I have a fever and the cure. This story in like a whole bunch of other like believable stories like this are in your new book money. The true story of a made up thing. This episode of the indicator was produced by Nick.

Egg Prices Skyrocket During The Pandemic
"It egg gree GIs or just good egg economics. The price of eggs skyrocketed during the pandemic, and now some states are suing AEG companies for price gouging Stacy Vanik, Smith and Cardiff Garcia from our daily economics podcast, the indicator from Planet money, tell us exactly what's going on with egg prices. We eat a lot of eggs in this country. The average American eats almost an egg a day and during the pandemic, we really got excited about eggs. Grocery stores were ordering six times more eggs than normal and a lot of store shelves were still empty. Yes, so demand for eggs went crazy and the supply could not increase right away because there are only so many egg laying hens in the US and you know that in prison, a man will lead to a rise in prices. That is David Ortega. He is a food economist at Michigan State University, and David says it's all about supply and demand. A spike in demand, plus a fixed supply pushes up the price. And the price went way up nearly 200% in March, and now a bunch of states have responded by suing AEG companies for price gouging. Thes states included Texas, West Virginia in Minnesota, and they also included New York, where the attorney general accused egg company Hillandale Farms of taking in $4 million in revenues from overcharging people for eggs and with egg prices. Here is where things get tricky. I mean, Did eight companies commit a crime by charging more for eggs. Were they just being good free market citizens? Also challenging really happens when you purposefully set the price of a commodity, you know, significantly above the traditional price level that incorporates costs and other forces, David says. Part of the issue here is that costs went up for eight companies to labor transports. Supplies were all hard to get and often expensive in the early days of the pandemic, But did those costs go up? By three or 400%, like their prices did that is the question being hashed out in courts now, and it's kind of complicated and part of the issue. Here, of course, is the egg itself, right? I mean, if I scream prices or caviar prices or wine prices or something like that went up by 200%. It probably wouldn't be a legal issue a price gouging accusation. But the idea here is that eggs are a staple in a stable that really vulnerable people count on, especially in a crisis, and this idea that companies were profiting off of vulnerable people in time of crisis makes it seem kind of wrong, David says. It's especially tricky here because there was a time when pretty much all food prices were going up. In fact, between March and April, food prices saw their biggest jump in 46 years. But you know it's really difficult to draw the line as to what is a appropriate price response due to the shock versus what isthe sort of This type of illicit behavior that's trying to take advantage of the situation, David says. We will have to see what the courts decide about egg prices and whether it was price gouging or just, you know, faire economics or maybe unfair but legal economics. Stacy Vanek, Smith.

"vanik" Discussed on KQED Radio
"I'm Ari Shapiro and I'm Stacy Vanik Smith, the legendary newspaper columnist Pete Hamill, has died. He was 85. He was a New York City tabloid crusader, and that made him one of the most influential figures in the city for decades. In 2011 Pete Hamill spoke with W H Y eyes. Fresh air. We came from a tradition where we were paid toe have opinions, but the opinions were based on the reporting. We had been there and looked at it whether it was Vietnam on Northern Ireland or the wrong part of town. Let's bring in NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik Hi, David. Hey, Stacey. So hearing Pete Mammals voice I feel like it tells us a lot about the man but describe him. If you will. Who was he? Cause you can kind of tell he was larger than life and casting unusually large shadow over his newsroom and over the profession, in part because it was New York and your cast such a shadow itself, but in part also was a very different agent journalism. To begin with Hamlet came from very modest beginnings. Born in Brooklyn, the son of Irish immigrants whose poor Catholic he was admitted to a very prestigious Catholic High school in New York, but dropped out joined the Navy kicked about a bit, became a cartoonist in newspapers. On, then joined the life for decades, in newspapers and outside newspapers, a heavy smoker, heavy drinker and self destructive ways that he chronicled in his telling memoir, a Drinking life. He also was are larger than life. His personal life. He dated the actress Shirley Maclaine. He didn't Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Linda Bronston lived large in the way that perhaps on Ly, a newspaper. Figure in New York could really pull off. Wow. Well, what kind of a record did he leave in journalism? Oh, he was hugely popular as well as hugely influential. He defined kind of the Big city columnist of his day, along with a handful of others Think of Jimmy Breslin, Mike Royko, Murray Kempton and wrote with Clear eyed compassion during years of tumult, starting Particularly the 19 sixties wrote about racial injustice, poverty, police brutality and corruption. Words and riots, Politicians and poppers. Ah guy who in his words Sato right to his working class readers because he respected them and spent time with them, rather than patronizing them from afar. And in thinking about her living beyond the news pages in his professional life as well. He wrote lyrically about Bob Dylan on Dylan's albums, liner notes in 68 he advised than Senator Bobby Kennedy on his presidential campaign. And when Kennedy was shot in June 1968 There was Pete Hamill, helping to wrestle his assassin to the ground wrote about national issues enough to be put on President Nixon's enemies list. He wrote about Donald Trump in the Central Park, five and as a tabloid editor for a stretch. He promptly went out to hire black and women journalists, at least to start to make up for lost time for profession dominated by white men. What do you think his legacy will be? Think of all the publications he wrote for the New York Post, The Daily News and Newsday. He sees the potential in a kind of tabloid journalism not purely defined by a supermarket gossip. He was a journalism that was brash, not cruel, kind of populism, defined not by the phoniness you might see on cable news outlets. Sadly, those tabloids air, not diminishing their size and ambition, his spiritually ours, I think or fewer and farther between them, one might hope that they do exist. Journalism's moved on. In other ways. NPR's David Folkenflik thinks David President Trump is attacking Democrats in an area where he's trying to win votes the suburbs they want to eliminate single family zoning. Bringing Who knows into your suburbs. Communities are grappling with how single family zone and can exacerbate racial inequity and climate change. NPR's Lauren Summer tells us how states like California are struggling to change housing laws For some climate activists, Susan Kirsch is one of their biggest obstacles. Which may seem strange because she cares about the environment. Yes, you're looking at my plug in Prius connected to my solar panels that plug in the energy back in February, I went to curse his home in Mill Valley, California, a city of mostly single family houses, about half an hour north of San Francisco. Median home prices around 1.5 million. There is a great appreciation. If you just look at the view from here of bushes and trees and seen curses house is exactly the kind in the middle of a huge housing debate. She lives in a walkable neighborhood near a bus line grocery store and bank. With the zoning on Ly allows single family homes here. So some California lawmakers have been trying to allow denser housing like duplexes or four plex is knowing that any of the neighbors.

But when did we start wearing masks for our health and safety this week on through line the origins of the n? Ninety five mask and how it became the life saving tool it is today through line from NPR. The podcast where we go back in time to understand the present Kayla Nelson and her husband have been waiting for their unemployment checks for six weeks. Meanwhile Kayla's husband got sick with covid nineteen. Some of her kids have been showing symptoms so she is trying to quarantine people care for people. Cook clean keep the kids doing their schoolwork. Keep everybody inside and on top of that when we called Kayla last week. She told us she's been spending hours on the phone with Indiana's unemployment office every day. Just calling the one eight hundred number which is great. You're just waiting and waiting and waiting and then once you finally get on the phone with them either one they hang up on you. The call is dropped or two. They don't have any information to give you KAYLA. Tried email. Thought maybe that would be faster. Emailed different claim and I only got a response back from one our family. We are really in crisis and I didn't run around where unemployment my name is Josh. Richardson on the Chief of Staff. At the Indiana Department of Workforce Development. We operate the state's unemployment insurance program. Josh has been working there for more than a decade. He was there during the great recession. When things got so bad they had nearly thirty thousand people applying for unemployment in one week so when Indiana announced a statewide shutdown. There's this one thought that went through his head. How do we possibly staff up to process than if it's the people need and the timeframe in which they're going to expect him in need them just a few months ago? Indiana was seeing record low unemployment. The staff was lean but was more than adequate to handle the two thousand odd people filing for unemployment. Every week they had about fifty people answering phones and around two hundred people processing claims but Josh thought if we get up to the great recession high of nearly thirty thousand people a week filing for unemployment. We're not going to be able to handle that with our little staff. And then the claim started coming in three thousand people five thousand people ten thousand people twenty thousand. Josh couldn't believe what he was seeing. And the numbers kept climbing to fifty thousand one hundred thousand people and then it kept climbing was like a hundred and twenty one hundred and thirty one hundred forty one hundred and forty thousand people filing for unemployment in one week. That's almost five times with Josh. Seen during the great recession just realizing that this was just really different than what we were expecting and what we built for hundreds of thousands of people were calling and Josh had fifty people answering phones. He started hiring as fast as he could. But people had to be vetted and trained and in the meantime all of these weird problem started cropping up news reports people saying well. I've been waiting for hours and I was hung up on. And so you. You start to investigate. How in the world are people getting hung up on? Josh looked into it and it turns out a lot of cell phone. Carriers have called time limits. Most of them. I think that we've seen many with four hour hold limits and so if that person on hold for four hours they are on hold for four hours and it's an extraordinarily long time and even all the longer when you've been waiting for four hours into call automatically gets dropped. They're also all these reports of people calling and the number just not working at all turns out. There are actually limits on. How many calls per second one phone line can accept so even when we had the recording to say sorry? We can't answer the phone. The number of calls per second exceeded our ability to connect them with the recording. They were getting more than sixty calls per second in the last eight weeks. Josh's brought on hundreds of people he now has roughly six hundred fifty people working with him. But they're trying to assist six hundred and forty thousand Indiana's who've lost their jobs Josh's whole time is down to around two hours and he says he's working all the time he doesn't take breaks. He says whenever he tries to all he can think about are the people who haven't gotten their money yet. People like Kayla who says her family situation is getting more desperate by the day. We barely have enough to pay the rent and still have money left over to support our family. If we don't get any really. Everybody is dependent on the government right in. My husband never had to depend on the government. We've been working for years so to go from being our own backbone in our own source of income to just waiting. You don't know when it's coming I was I was very like I was at my lowest. Yesterday I was over. I quit was over Josh. Richardson says he and his team are working as fast as they can trying to get money out to the people who so desperately need it still. He says he knows that. For a lot of people people like Kayla not fast enough. We sort of get the. Hey you guys should have been more prepared. You should have seen this coming in. There's no point in arguing that out. All we can do is try to get better.

So you're wanted with the Samaritans held on if you've been working with them actually not long about two years. I started doing it when I start work and I'd worked in a very busy high pressure job. That really left no room for anything else and when I stopped doing it uh suddenly thought I really would like to investigate Samaritans And it was thought that just came out of a clear. Blue skied at know. Why but it did I discovered that was a branch quite near me and I went to the information evening. I was really impressed with what I saw. And Went straight into the training and at all it all the way through. I was thinking if I feel this is quite right. You know just stop.

I think that possibly mental health when it comes to mental health. It's a little bit like physical health. So people who have mentioned Cova to me have also go other issues. So it's a bit like you have underlying issues and then code and the challenges of coded Sorta the exacerbate these issues as it has done with physical health unit so the people who were suffering most with covert was the people who had underlying issues. And that for me. in the cools. I've taken has been the case. That people have got issues going on in their lives. May they may be prone to depression. They may be feeling very lonely. Anau lockdown has sort of those issues into much sharper focus. I haven't had anyone cool specifically about vid frightened of that actual many peop- law I think a lot of people to listening to the Picasso's probably relate to that because just vanik totally sort of from friends and even family who have sort of long-term half the she's Winstons if you sort of have anxiety General anxiety disorder that sort of become west because of to defensive in my case bipolar disorder in. They've been issues in terms of getting medication. Because of Kovic so it is also give lots of things become west sort of people yes I admit rishton about the unnaturally People with mental health issues and depending on how acute those mental health issues all often have quite a good comprehensive support cap package in place with the NHS and because of social distancing and because of not being able to see people face to face the many people with mental health issues. That support system has evaporated actually during lockdown. And we do. We do see people calling us because they can't any longer speak to that key worker. Will that support worker And Yeah I think I think it's. It's very difficult for people in that situation. Because the the package they used to be able to rely on. Isn't there the same thing happens a bit Christmas and Times like that holidays? People are away and doing other things. And it's a bit like that with lockdown some Jim Peas and mental health. Wise are offering example. Counseling defy laptops obsessions over the phone. I think it's probably pros and cons. Who Different people? I think some people find that helpful. Princeton's if you're depressed you might find easy to just sort of pick up the phone chat someone not she go into a surgery but then as he signed for a lot of people. If you're used to seeing the same pass in face to face it can be quite difficult to get used as a new way of talking to them or if together. I think doing what they can where they can. I think I think doing an incredible job. But it's inevitably gained be a bit patchy and maybe you'll key worker has to a self isolated is an can't be there for you I also had another cooler. He couldn't go to church for her. Church was a vital part of her of her weekly routine really was a point where she saw to touch base every week with the community that went to Sch- and suddenly that was taken from her and that was very hard So yeah it's it's people are finding that that regular support system has been taken away and therefore it leaves you feeling very on anchored and bit A little bit out of balance and I think there's no question that lockdowns been huge adjustment for all of us in. Its massive. What what has happened? In the last few weeks countries come to a standstill lutts huge. And you can't pretend it's no huge. It will have an impact on all of us to one degree or another. You know someone must have more resilient than others But you know being less. Resilient is not a sign of failure it is just the person you are and you may need some support and certainly smartened serve to support anybody. Who is struggling through this time?
Small Businesses On Their Own
"Molly Moon Knight's will is the CEO of Molly Moon's homemade ice cream in Seattle Washington. She opened her business twelve years ago yet. Twelve years ago that was two thousand and eight right is the. Us economy was sinking into a massive recession. Molly was terrified back then but actually her shop did well and one of the things that I learned. Is that ice? Cream is one of the most recession proof businesses or products when people can't get themselves more expensive things going on vacation or or like buying their kids a new bike. They treat themselves to smaller treats. Less expensive treats more often throughout the great recession. Molly's business grew in fact the little shop did so well molly did something. She never expected to do opened more shops by January of this year she had eight shops all around Seattle. At about one hundred employees molly started selling her ice cream to supermarkets and is actually in the middle of building a giant wholesale facility where she can make larger batches of salted caramel melted chocolate scout. Meant which actually has pieces of thin mint cookies in it. That sounds fantastic. And apparently I'm not the only person who thinks so because molly sold almost eight million dollars worth of ice cream last year. I've been really optimistic that I would break the ten million dollar mark in revenue in a year and very very very few female owned businesses ever crossed the ten million dollar mark. So I've been kind of focused on that number and really excited and proud of us and then current virus set and then corona virus. It molly had to clues oliver shops in fact right now. Mali's just struggling to survive. Yes she's counting on money from the government coming through as part of the two point two trillion dollar cares act that Congress passed last month. Small Business owners like molly can apply for loans of up to two million dollars to keep their heads above water. While this economic shutdown continues at least that was idea the billions in aid that Congress directed to small businesses. Only seems to be getting to a tiny number of them. This is the indicator from planet. Money I'm Stacey Vanik Smith and I'm Cardiff Garcia. Today on the show small business aid as of this morning. That fund from the government is out of money and thousands of small businesses including.

Planet Money: Single Women Are Shortchanged In The Housing Market
"Buying or selling a home is difficult. Even if you are very savvy with money but academics have discovered. It's even harder if you're a single woman. Sally Herships Stacey Vanek Smith from our daily economics. podcast the indicator from planet money. Explain what's going on. A new study just came out of Yale School of Management. It looks at how well single women do versus single men when they buy home or when they invest in the housing market housing is probably the largest purchase. It's made by most Americans. That's Kelly shoe. She teaches finance at the Yale School of Management and she says we invest more in our homes than in the stock market so when gene her colleague Paul Goldsmith. Pinkham recently bought houses around the same time they were paying a lot of attention to the transactions. Kellyanne Paul ended up looking at data data from over fifty million housing transactions. And here's what they found. On average single women buy houses for two percent more than single men but they also sell those houses for two percent. Less women are losing about one thousand. Three hundred seventy dollars per year relative to men because they tend to buy the same house at a higher price and sell for a lower price just knowing the gender of the other party can affect the sale according to Kelly shoe when women make low offers the are treated differently differently than men who make the same low offers. It is an unfortunate consequence of perhaps our culture and the fact that We may I expect that women are more willing to share the pie and share the surplus from negotiation. This is called gender expectations. It's the possible that women are expected to be nicer to be more generous to be more thoughtful. It's the idea that everyone should benefit from. The sale of this House both buyer higher end seller. But no matter what the reason is that is not exactly what happens. When single women houses remember single women buyers they are already spending more buying it higher prices and they also sell for less and guess who they give the biggest discounts to we find that the largest richest discounts tend to occur. When it's a female seller and mail buyer single? Women also do worse when it comes to. What is called market timing? Kelly says that could be because single women tend to be more tied down and in case. You're wondering Kelly and her co author accounted for all kinds of things education. An income age type of home listing agent ethnicity. They adjusted for all of these things and the results stuck so this is kind end of distressing but there was a silver lining there some good news depending on how you characterize a silver lining women on average do better when they are transacting with other women. So there's a tip for single women if you are buying or selling a house like look at doing business with a woman you might get a better deal and Kelly had some other tips. She says single single women are able to. They should try to think long term to become long-term investors because every time a single woman buys or sells a house. She is likely to lose two percent cent compared to a single man. Stacey Vanik Smith Sally Herships N._P._R. News.

How 1 Farmer Navigates California's Strict Limit On Groundwater
"California is putting new limits on the amount of groundwater the businesses can use. This comes after years of devastating drought. Stacey Vanik Smith and Cardiff Garcia hosts of the NPR podcast, the indicator from planet money brings us the story, they spoke to one farmer about how he's navigating these restrictions using an innovative new micro market for water. Edgar Terry is a farmer in Ventura County, California. He meets us on his farm, and it is absolutely beautiful rolling Brown foothills, and Greenfield's Iggo, celery, salon tro peppers. So what was the drought-like for you? Well, you know, we managed through it. The scary part was were were standing next to one of our newer water wells here. And when we drilled that well in two thousand and ten are standing water level was thirty five feet as of the end of last year. It was down to one hundred thirty five feet at one point during the drought. The water level in edgar's aquifer got so low some of his pumps, couldn't reach it. Things are much better. Now California's drought is officially over and Edgar takes us to see the pump, it is a fat white pipe that rises up out of the ground with a little wheel on it and Edgar turns the wheel and starts the pump. We have water. Before. And during part of the drought egg could pretty much use as much water as he wanted from the aquifer, but new regulations have capped his use, in the amount of water he can use. We'll get a little bit smaller every year. It has to be reduced to percent here for twenty years for a forty percent reduction of water to get there. Well, so in essence all else being equal forty percent of my land fallow. If your allotted water isn't enough. You could lose your crops, if you use more than your share of water, you face huge fines. So Edgar teamed up with who else an economist to create a marketplace, where local farmers who shared the aquifer could buy and sell water. If a farmer had extra water that farmer could set the price posted to a website and if a farmer needed water that farmer could go to the website and buy it. But there was a problem, Ed, courses the way a farmer uses water is a proprietary thing and the idea of your neighbor knowing how much water you use. And when you're using it that was just a nonstarter. So. The economists created an online, marketplace, that's kind of like Tinder, but for buying and selling water and with one big difference, which is that it's all anonymous buyers and sellers are machine matched you put into the market algorithm. What you're willing to sell for. I put into the market algorithm. What I'm willing to buy for the pilot is just getting started. But Edgar says he holds out a lot of hope for this idea. He says, if farmers own share of water instead of just having it be a free resource. They will use it better. Be more responsible with it. Otherwise without that ability, the incentive is, well, heck, I need to drain the for before my neighbor, dozen. Well, what good does that do it puts us both out of business? Let's think about a way of creating a system of market forces, where there's an incentive to conserve and also in you're able to still grow your crop. Edgar expects water costs will continue to be a bigger and bigger issue for his business. But he says he wouldn't do anything else. I couldn't imagine. Myself sitting in a high rise looking out over a sea of other high rises. I like looking out over us. See of dirt. Stacey Vanik Smith. Cardiff Garcia, NPR news.

The Illegal Business of Smuggling Animals
"Smuggling illegally taking things into or out of a country. We hear stories about smuggling all the time smuggling drugs cash weapons diamonds. But one of the biggest categories of items smuggled is a little bit more exotic so to speak animals earlier this year, a suitcase was intercepted in the Philippines that contain fifteen hundred little turtles that had been smuggled in from China. They're estimated worth nearly ninety thousand dollars. Were they ninja turtles? No not. That was reported but I don't know. They were wrapped in duct tape in, like stuffed in shoes and stuff. They're so cute. They were like little, little guys, like the size of a hockey puck and also a man was caught smuggling seventy live birds through JFK in hair rollers and just a few weeks ago. There was this big bust in the Philippines. A man was caught trying to smuggle seven hundred and fifty tarantulas estimated value around six thousand dollars in a box of cook.

So how do you feel about spiders? I feel great. I only ask, because I feel like I have mixed feelings about spiders, might looking at them in the wrong way, people feel that an Arthur, bud life being an insect life or spider life isn't as valuable. So you don't appreciate its right to live as much, but I don't think cuddling sore Fluck Innis should be a criteria for conservation. What do you do? When you see a spider in your apartment recently, I found in my bedroom. I give it a drink at a little bowl of water for it. Yes, I did. I. Dehydrated. So she was very happy. And she was a female. She was very happy to drink from it. I thought about, you know, should I find insect and give it food, but it looked well, put outside and bent on its way. And I think it's doing well now how do you recognize when spidery dehydrates training for an upcoming fight or something like that? And it's like, hey, Waterberg water break and being a spider insurgence apartment is good fighter less good. We wanted to talk to Sergio about the cookie Bach seizure. The seven hundred and fifty tarantulas, which were worth apparently six thousand dollars. Is this something that happens, like, people sm- like that many people want spiders, as pets, and, and we know this happens like daily not only with spiders, though, no scorpions as well? Centipedes beetles, but you're flies of the whole range of animals. That people if there's an interest in buying them people will find a way to get them for me like business as usual. Yeah. How big is this market is at, like multi million dollars a year? Yes worldwide. Yes. Definitely into the multi millions. I mean valuable specimens can easily go into thousands. So a seizure of a few that's twenty tarantulas you be conceived, spiders, that values already thousands of dollars. It is committed that the animal smuggling market is worth about twenty million dollars a year call that today's planet money, indicator twenty million dollars or twenty million dollars. We don't really know because animal smuggling is illegal Sergio says animal smuggling has grown astronomically in recent years for couple of reasons first, deforestation and development has made even really remote areas, much more accessible to people so species that used to be extremely hard to get to are now far easier to catch second Syria says the internet makes it much easier to sell the animals using everything from Facebook to specialty sites to chat rooms, and to find buyers in all. Places, and it all price ranges. Sergio says one of the most smuggled animals on earth is thought to be abalone. It's a cease nail that lives, mainly off the coast of South Africa is apparently very tasty kind of a gourmet thing. Also, the abalone shell is really beautiful and strong. The abalone is protected, but there's just a huge trade in it. That's why smuggling muggings right Scott so popular smugly market, another, one of the most smuggled animals is the penguin sort of looks like an Armadillo, and it's covered with these big scales that are thought to have magical properties and the pangolin is sort of popular in, like, what would you call it homey ethic met homeopathic medicine. Yeah. And as a result of smuggling the penguin is now endangered when it comes to insects Sergio specialty they are typically caught for a few different reasons sometimes as pets, but there are a lot of other reasons to some people want for splaying. So there been the dried maybe you've seen them. Sometimes I've seen shops. Oh, yeah. Yeah. With the insect displays. Sure. Yeah. Exactly. Some people will kill the spider and put them in a sort of blasting. And then they just have them as a keychain sometime in Asia, they're fried and use snack or as sort of a jurist gimmicky thing where the will take Instagram photo of them eating tarantula ninjas throw the body away. So the animals actually wasted after all those years growing after all those efforts than his just nobody eats, sir. Here says the most popular insects to smuggle tend to have three major characteristics that combination of factors usually being big being colorful, and being rare is like the treat some of the things people look for if it combines all three than yeah. Prices skyrocket. So a lot of butterflies some Beatles, and the emperor scorpion. Yes, it's this big black, scorpion from west Africa. It's the size of your hand. Sergio says people like them as pets because they looked so terrifying. But apparently, according to Sergio, they're pretty gentle little guys, as far as spiders, the red kneed tarantula, which is found in Mexico. Ago is really popular. It's a large tarantula with red and yellow stripes on its legs. And Sergio says the red knee. Tarantula is also now threatened is smuggling partly responsible for them being at risk. Yeah. Definitely. Yeah. Relocate seems it would be such a small dent. You know what I mean something like four station, seems like I could see how that would put us species at risk. But smugly it's gotta be pretty little like a couple hundred spiders. They were only if you hundred I can see how to be fairly sustainable. But the numbers are higher are much higher really talking about few thousand every year. But the things that the spiders were studied, the red news one, they take that case to grow. They grow in a year or even to take decades to become adults even being able to read. So if let's say we harvest out of good colony a healthy colony, and they have a hundred have one hundred specimens spread about this little spider town, you will, and you take off of their numbers. That city that spider colony won't bow back very quickly. And what's the problem? Mm-hmm. With with an insect becoming extinct. Yeah. Well, that's, that's a that is the million dollar question, sort of that is the same question people phrase about all sorts of things going extinct. So if we were to disappear as humans the earth would do pretty well without us actually probably better than it's doing now. Well, if you wear to remove spiders, however, the world, wouldn't last very well, not as we know it, it wouldn't last long at all the number of insects, they every single days, just Astra nominal if that predation exist, and you balance would have to be in number of insects just explode. And then, of course, another predator have to take over and than we'd be filled of that. So you see, so we're messing with this delicate balance, not being completely aware, not aware at all. What on quences will be Sergio says that the animal smuggling trade seems to be getting bigger all the time. So he and his team, try to track the people that they suspect of selling smuggled animals, for example by watching online vendors and they also educate buyers about, where they should get animals and how to avoid buying animals that have been smuggled, but he says, even a lot of pet stores have illegally, harvested animals, because so many people just don't know. The problem we often faces that Esam is in takes hold of most people working in a field. We see too many destruction. Species appearing to quickly and we feel helpless to do anything about it. But as I see it as long as we try really hard. I'm okay with failing really well. So you're trying really hard. Yeah. That's all I can do really if you wanna buy spider really any animal. Sergio says you should ask for the documents that show. It was captive bred. What do you think Cardiff should the or get red knee tarantula to we have a mascot as long as it doesn't come in a box of cookies?
Does the Deficit Matter?
"As evil number one fat, sandy not wanna eat fat. It was bad. There was no such thing as good fat. It was just all bad fat. And so in the store there was low fat everything there were these Lafayette cookies your snack cookies cardio. Yes. Like hockey pucks like had the consistency of packing phone. We're like frozen yogurt. Then it was like a low fat alternative to ice cream, which also kind of had the consistency of packing foam eighties. Eating a lot of stuff with the consisting of packing foam, like even low fat butter. You could've mentioned cholesterol, good, cholesterol, and bad cholesterol. Is at all bad. You know, that's that's another one for your list. That is Jason Furman. He's a professor of economic policy at the Harvard Kennedy School, and he also worked as an economist for the Obama administration. And we wanted to talk to Jason because he writes anything's a lot about another kind of universal evil that we had back in the eighties deficits the deficit is the shortfall between the tax revenue. The government collects in a given year and the money it spends when the government spends more money than it takes in. It has to borrow money to cover the shortfall that is the deficit, by the way, the deficit is not to be confused with the national debt. So the debt is like the amount of water in the bathtub and the deficit. Is like the amount of water. That's coming out of the tap in a given period of time and flowing into the bathtub to the debt is you're running total. The deficit is what you do in any given year politicians on the right on the left in the center. The one thing they could all agree on was the deficits were bad. It came up a lot deficit spending should not be a feature of budget. We have to cut the deficit because the more we spent paying off the debt the less tax dollars. We have to invest in jobs and education, the massive national debt, which we accumulated is the result of the government's high-spending diet. Well, it's time to change the diet and to change it in the right way. Government spending is a dangerous road. The deficits the people of America have been overcharged and on their behalf. I'm here asking for a refund, but now attitudes about budget deficits are evolving a lot. There's even a whole sort of tr. Trendy school of thought economics now, saying budget deficits, don't matter nearly as much as we thought that unless budget deficits lead to inflation. We can rack up all the deficits we want. No big deal. Jason Furman is not in that camp. But he says, you know, just like fat deficits are not the universal evil that we used to think they were. Although he did say that he didn't think it was an exact analogy it's a little bit different in that there. Probably is some timeless truth about dieting undefeated. I don't even think there is an underlying timeless truth because the world actually is changing and financial markets are functioning one way in the eighties and other way now and you need to. You know, change, your your an update, your ideas with with us changes in the world this indicated for planet money, I'm carseat, and I'm Stacey Vanik Smith.

The budget deficit is set to hit a trillion dollars. Jason Furman urine economist with Harvard's Kennedy School, you also served as an economist under President Obama trillion dollar sounds like a lot. That's scary Ohno's lot and that'll be popping for people absolately. Do I wish the deficit was smaller? Yes. Would I feel better about our economy? We had a lower debt as sheriff are Konami. Yes. So I feel like when I was growing up in eighties. The deficit was just this universally acknowledged terrible thing like the deficit was was bad. I feel like that his changed. But why has it changed? I mean, why did I mean it was really talked about. I think sort of this universal evil. Like, the one thing we could all grand was that the deficit was bad. Sometimes deficits can be good. Sometimes they can be bad. And sometimes they can be just not nearly as important as you'd like to think the time when they're good is in a recession you need to get yourself out of a recession. A'deficit means you're spending money or cutting taxes, that's helping the economy and in the nineteen eighties deficits back then really were a problem now deficits aren't causing high interest rates. So I don't think they're causing nearly the same magnitude of problems for the economy as they once were. Feel like they're kind of two parts of the deficit that people tend to worry about one is this kind of like there's almost sort of a morality like a moral principle at stake about deficits and the other one is just that sort of drags are Konami down. You could think about it in terms of morality because it can affect the distribution of income between generations. They're it depends on what you're doing it for if you're running a deficit to invest in infrastructure. You might actually be helping a future generation if you're running a deficit to give big tax cuts to people who are going to just run out and spend it today, you might be hurting a future generation. So I think there is a morality play between how this affects different generation. So what do you think is the best approach to the deficit right now? I mean, it sounds like maybe one extreme the other extreme don't like neither of those are good idea. What's a good idea? I can't give you. Scientific certainty. Exactly what the right way to handle the deficit is if you have a great new idea for college or a great new idea for social security or a great new tax cut. You wanna do then, you know, cut spending or raise taxes so that you're not adding to the deficit and making even higher than otherwise would have been that strikes. Middle course, it says you're not making a major exit for deficit reduction. You're just doing no harm. What I wouldn't do though is pass a law that makes that deficit even larger what are some good things about running a deficit. You know, the good is in a recession. It can help stimulate demand. Get people in businesses to spend more and help you get out of the recession in normal times. If you're using the deficit as a way to spend money on good things like infrastructure like scientific research, then it can actually make you richer in the future. Not. Poorer the flip side, the bad is if you're spending money on bad things, it can make future generations poorer, and it can drive up interest rates. Probably only happens a little, but it can that results in less business investment unless economic growth, you mentioned that like the economics of deficits have changed. How how have they changed? What has changed? And what is what does it mean for deficits the single most important number to know in? Judging country's fiscal situation is the difference between its interest rate and its growth rate 'cause if your interest rate is higher than your growth rate, your debt is going to be spiraling up as a share of the economy. If your interest rate is lower than your growth rate that helps contain how much your debt is rising relative to the economy right now in the United States growth rates are higher than interest rates, and that's helping us. To grow out of some of our debt burden and it's that key variable or minus Chee watching how that changes over time is I think a real key to understanding how much you should be worried about deficits at any point in time. Jason furman. Thank you so much. Thanks for having.
Selling Dinosaur Bones On eBay
"You can list all kinds of things on EBay, right? Secondhand books. Vintage clothes couches, but dinosaur fossils. Yup. You can make good money selling fossils online. But that does not sit well with some scientists Cardiff Garcia and Stacey Vanik Smith. They are hosts of NPR's podcast, the indicator from planet money, and they've got the story of one guys attempt to e sell a tab Ranna Storace. Rex here is the specific EBay listing for the T. Rex it. Reads young baby t Rex dinosaur fossil the price two point nine five million dollars. So first question who has a T Rex to sell on EBay? I I'm Alan Dietrich. And I'm a professional dinosaur hunter in the US. If you find a dinosaur on your property you own it. It's yours so Fussell hunters like Alan go to fossil country. I went to where they would find the big p Rex's Garfield county, Montana and carting county, South Dakota. The find the person who owns the property where the dinosaur is Andy says, let me look around your land for dinosaur bones. And if I find one I'll give you a cut, Allen's found a lot of fossils this way, including the baby t Rex binding dinosaur bones and selling them to museums and private buyers is how Allen makes money one of the pioneers of this business is Pete Larson. Larson runs. The black hills institute of geological research in South Dakota. So far, we've collected ten different trying to source. Rex skeletons partial skeletons, and that's kind of a record. I guess okay. Pete is being modest there around forty t Rex skeletons that have ever been discovered and Pete has found ten of them. When Pete started out in the fossil business in the late seventies. It wasn't really a job that people had but that changed in the mid nineties when a couple of things happened. I. That's such a good ROY even Spielberg happened. Yes. Even Spielberg happened addressing progresses. Huge hit. And suddenly everybody was super individuals and wanted to hunt for them a number two one of the T Rex is that Pete Larson found a T Rex named sue fetched more than eight million dollars from a buyer and people thought, whoa. There was real money to be made in dinosaurs. And suddenly Montana and South Dakota. We're just like crawling with fossil prospectors and fossil hunting win from this kind of sleepy shoestring academic pursuit to a pretty hot little business. Allen Dietrich is hoping to get a premium for son of Samson because it's the only known baby t Rex. So I'm looking at it. Now, it's two point nine five million approach to cheap. You probably it's priced to move. And sale. Yeah. Now, the for profit fossil business has caused a lot of controversy among museums and the academic community because some of the people hunting just have no qualifications. So they can end up easily destroying priceless fossils. But Larson says the fossil market has to evolve with the times without these private collectors. Most museums would not be able to get real fossils for exhibit, the EBay place seems to be working Allen dietrick says he's got an offer. Who is it a good offer? Well, I'm gonna use a double entendre with you. Okay. It's a bona fide. Stacey Vanek Smith Garcia NPR news.
Someone is selling a T-Rex on eBay
"Is a lot of news happening right now. And you know, I feel like in a lot of ways it's just hard for any story to rise above the fray they'll start to blend together, especially if you do a daily podcast. That's true. But you know, every once in a while UC story that just breaks through all the noise just bust through it, all and the other day. I saw exactly this kind of story. And I ran over to cardis desk. Ran all the way over adjoining cubicle. And I was like Cardiff you're not gonna believe this somebody selling tarantulas wrecks on EBay. This is indicator from planet money. I'm Stacey Vanik Smith, and I'm Garcia who didn't care if there was nothing else going on with that story. I was like soul. Let's do something about it. Yeah. So today on the show. Yeah. Someone is selling t Rex on EBay so many questions. How does one come to own a t Rex had you figure out what to charge for a t Rex? And who do you sell it to?

Here is the specific EBay listing for the t Rex it. Reads young baby t Rex dinosaur fossil most likely the only baby t Rex in the world and as a fifteen foot long body in twenty one in skull with serrated teeth. The price is today's indicator two point nine five million dollars or best offer. Obio we're best offer. So first question who has a T Rex to sell on EBay amount Dietrich, and I'm a professional dinosaur hunter Allan found the baby t Rex. But I gotta say wearing out of boots you find it dinosaur. But says y'all got to go to the right spot Garfield county, Montana and carting county, South Dakota. So those are the two really good spots on T Rex and like all good fisherman. I went to where they were catching the big bass and find the big p rexes. Yeah. This is also the first thing I didn't know about finding telling T rexes. It's like, finders keepers. Yeah. In the US, if you find a dinosaur on your property you own it. It's yours. You can donate it or sell it or turn it into a coffee table, whatever you want. So vessel hunters like Alan go to fossil country. They rove around looking for likely dinosaur hot spots. They find the person who owns. The property where the dinosaur is or might be knock on their door. Andy says, hey, I've got a proposition for you. Let me look around your land for dinosaur bones. And if I find one I'll give you a cut, Allen's found a lot of fossils this way, including the baby t Rex he and his brother were fossil hunting in Montana when his brother spotted something in the dirt. He found part of a tooth. And we didn't know what it was we thought. Well, it's too small to be Rex it. It's it's serrated. But it it's too small. It was about two inches, whereas a full grown T. Rex tooth can be up to nine inches long. Terrifying. Allen and his brother weren't quite sure. What they had. But they started digging. We have ribs. We have vertebrae we have skull. We have the legs are are extremely long. So he was a long legged guy legs for days. I wanna restaurant. That's like we have vertebrae. We have. Anyway. Okay. Scientists who studied the specimen that Allan found. Allen's T-rex said they thought it was about four years old when it died and Allen named it son of Samson after t Rex he found years ago named Samson. You know, it's got a good ring to it. Yes. It does. So I feel like, you know, it would be good commercially to sell this dinosaur with the name son of good commercially finding dinosaur bones and selling them to museums and private buyers is how Allen makes money one of the pioneers of this business is Pete Larson. Larson runs. The black hills institute of geological research in South Dakota. You're also a fossil hunter you found. A lot of tyrannosaurus. Rex is far we've collected ten different transverse Rex skeletons in personal skeletons, and that's kind of a record. I guess okay. Pete is being modest there around forty t Rex skeletons that have ever been discovered and Pete has found ten of. Of them. And he is also found in sold all kinds of dinosaurs. But he says, you know, T Rex are just undeniably the coolest
How to measure happiness: economic gain could be a factor
"Happiness. It is thing we are all striving for in life. Right. I mean, it is how you achieve the good life. Yes. But it can be so allusive. What makes you happy? Is. It relationships is at your job money. Maybe coffee. Absolutely in there for me. I had a strong reaction to calling. This is a little odd. Seriously. It is hard to know. And it can feel even harder to know precisely because it is so difficult to measure. It's the fact that people are uneasy about how you might measure. It may have been why economics became narrower than it should have been a couple of centuries ago. This is a communist John Hellawell, Don is with the Vancouver school that nominee at the university of British Columbia on one of the others of the world.

An Economist in Caracas: Day In The Life
"Mahood Venezuela, which is an internationally funded think-tank, that's affiliated with the Venezuelan opposition party that would be positioned to President Nicolas Maduro. He's been the country's president since two thousand thirteen and under his presidency. The country's economy has the Szekely fallen apart yesterday. We talked to Gabriella about the economic data in Venezuela. But also Gabriella is not just looking at numbers on a page. She lives in Gattaca. She grew up there. The country's economy is collapsing all around or and it's something that she sees every single day. She sees it in the closed up storefronts the shrinking number of people on the streets. And how skinny everyone is getting. And we wanted to get that experience from Gabriele to this is the indicator from planet money. I'm Stacey Vanik Smith, and I'm Garcia today on the show day in the life of an economist in. Doc.

A new podcast from Lincoln's aditorial team about the changing nature of work and how to get the most from Monday and your career fine. Hello Monday on apple podcasts or wherever you listen to podcasts. Gabriella Saadi says she's incredibly lucky she loves her work and her job pays her in US dollars three hundred dollars a month that actually she says a decent wage in Venezuela in spite of her relative privilege living in Caracas is not easy the city and country are crumbling around her and her family, and she sees this every day as soon as she gets up. One of the first things I do is attack. If I have. You know, running water used to see I can. Yeah. To see five we'll be able to take her shower or not Gabriela says, she has water about half the time, but shower or no shower Gabriella has to go to work, but she doesn't take her car not anymore. I need this piece to get aches. And we cannot find it and you were in Venezuela. So I have to take Pollock transportation. But sees I bring my laptop with me to work. I cannot do that. Because I could get robbed. This is Scott us. Okay. One of the most dangerous cities in the world. These days Gabriella takes taxi to work, of course, the taxes can't get parts either. So Gabriel says the ride can be pretty hair-raising once Gabrielle is in her office. She analyzes data with the team of communists, and researchers and tries to come up with economic solutions for Venezuela. She says it's basically black office anywhere, desks. Computers. Water cooler talk power outages that lasts for hours. We are. So used to having them we even have an alum here in the office. Never we got a blackout. So we can you know, plug out everything. So our repayment of one get damage OSA? There's not like a power surge or something exactly around the middle of the day. Gabriel says she tries to go to the grocery store to shop for her family. But before she can do that she has to get Venezuelan boulevards Gabriella and her colleagues get paid in dollars. Gabriel says she's very grateful for that. But a lot of times by Staples. Or really anything you? You need boulevards. Of course, the Bulevar is having a terrible time. Hyperinflation has gripped the country. It is now running at ten million percent. That's what inflation is right now in Venezuela. Ten million percent in order to deal with all this Gabriel and all of our colleagues the system she converts a little bit of US dollars, two boulevard every day through a currency trader ten dollars a day or twenty dollars a day, depending on my expenses. So I will talk to that trader and that person would get me a buyer, and then I will sell sell them dollars is on the phone like a. Yeah. Over what's up over? What has a guy? The guy converts Gabrielle is ten or twenty US dollars into boulevard and transfers at tiny amount into her Venezuelan Bank account the rest of the money. She keeps in a Bank account in the US, or it's protected from the inflation, and even the ten or twenty bucks that the guy transfers into Gabriel's Venezuelan Bank account is not immune to. Inflation. I cannot postpone my shopping. I have to do it right away. Because what happens if you postpone? The prices will rise. If Gabriela waits too long to do her shopping. She says her money could lose enough value that she would not have enough to get what she needs in. It's on her way to the supermarket that Gabriella sees just how much things have changed in her country. The worst Florida is whenever I have to go to the supermarket to buy something because on my way to the supermarket. I see all these families trying to look food on the trash families even with with like, I don't know five kits. They don't ask you for money. The ask you for food. So I will carry that with me to give them like some. So mean. Yeah. And I have never seen like it'll class feeble looking for food on the trash. But now you do because for example, a teacher that used to be in the middle class. Now is now in poverty to real says that when she gets to the grocery store, it is always packed with a huge line snaking around the corner because the cash is worthless. Everyone has to pay by debit card, and because the internet and the power spotty getting a payment through configure really long time sometimes to store will disclose its doors because it can't take any payments and says Gabriella the grocery store has become this kind of grab bag the shelves are often empty and the items are random things have in grocery list is pointless. You know, whenever you see a good that you haven't seen in monce. Even if you don't need it. You just get crazy. And you buy it like, for example up today some meal, and I hadn't seen it for a while. So I got like six liters of male. And I didn't even need that. But that's like the effect of the hyper inflation and everything what were the prices like. Oh. Indeed dollars. It would be more than one dollar the litter. Most people in Venezuela. Make the equivalent of around six dollars a month that milk would be incredibly expensive out of reach for them. Part of this is because of hyper inflation and part of it is because Venezuela's economy has collapsed and still have all of its institutions like the farms, so a country full of starving. People is not really making that much of its own food. It is importing that food. And it's not just food any kind of necessity can be hard to get when Gabriel is ninety five year old grandfather got sick. She ran into the same problem. He was in the hospital three months ago. And we couldn't find a medicine that he needed it. We had to go to like ten places. But then I walked the medicine with people that that had it, and I gave that person the medicine that they need it. Oh, you traded. You like bartered exactly afterward Gubbio says she likes to go for. A run outside. There is so park in Caracas for most runners go it's safe. There are military there and everything Gabriel says there are some rich military government types who liked this park so protected otherwise she says the city's gotten so dangerous, especially for a woman alone. When she gets home says the first thing she does is check her computer and especially Twitter for news. Most of the TV and radio stations are owned by the government. So it's all about fake news for them will leave in the best country in the world, the classic manual cater. So we have three ter-, and we say informed there. It's through Twitter and through texting Gabriela realized that the blackouts were happening across the whole country and not just in the city of dacas. It's Twitter that warns her when more blackouts are coming or reports that eighty newborn babies died in the hospital during the last blackout when news broke yesterday that opposition leader. One guy does car had been attacked in Caracas. Gabriela sent me a photo of hundreds of cars pulled over to the side of the highway full of people desperately trying to get reception on their phones to get some kind of news update. It turned out. He was fine. Of course, Gabriela is an exceptionally lucky person in Venezuela. Her father is a US citizen, and she has some money saved up in a Bank account in the US because you could leave if you wanted. Yeah. I could I could do you stay like, well, I don't know maybe this will sound very millennial. But I feel like I have a purpose here. I know that I can make a difference. And it's like, I'm very very committed to to the people of an that's well, that's I'm here at the end of day. Gabriela goes to bed cetera Larne for six AM after all she has to get up early to her daily water. Check.

And Spotify said he was their most requested artists in the first week that they launched in India last month, this is the indicator from planet money. I'm Stacey Vanik Smith, and I'm Pamela Boyko this expansion into India. It's key for Spotify. Right. It's this alluring big market one point three billion people, and they're spending more and more time on their smartphones. So many tech companies Stacey they wanna get in there. Well, yeah. Because the Swedish company Spotify, it's become the world's most popular music streaming service. I mean, I have it. I think you haven't. I haven't wants to keep growing it needs to expand to new places at their first investor day a year ago, the CEO Daniel Eck made this big announcement. We're working launching in some of the biggest markets in the world places like India, Russia and most of Africa the trouble Stacy is that launching an. Ndia? It's not that easy. The market is really complicated to enter from the outside. Spotify had a long hard fight ahead on today's indicator Spotify in India, we take the experience of this one company and use it as a way to figure out why it's so difficult to break into India.

A new podcast from Lincoln's aditorial team about the changing nature of work and how to get the most from Monday and your career find Hello Monday on apple podcasts or wherever you listen to podcasts. Stacey I wanted to learn more about why? Spotify would be so interested in launching in India, and why it was such a struggle. I called up this man nickel power. He's an Indian digital rights activist and the founder of a tech website called media NAMA. He said the amount of data used on India's largest cell phone provider is eight to ten times what it was just a year ago. They does really really cheap in speeds of a bitter and improving. Vittal nicely forty market now. But there has been this problem just like everywhere else. Indians do not wanna pay for online content a bunch of music download sites failed in the past. And there is still just a huge amount of piracy in the last. Couple of years subscription streaming services are starting to grow enough to catch the attention of a big company like Spotify, but not just Spotify. Lots of companies wanna make money off India's growing population of internet users. That's a big challenge. Competition is intense local music streaming apps are leading the market like Ghana GO Saban. And then they're also these familiar international names in their Google play, apple music, and Amazon we counted and before Spotify there were already at least ten music streaming services in India, plus Powell says of to deal with another competitor. When you might not always think of of goes, the largest music service in India is actually you to most people prefer to stream videos and listen to the music. In India because it's completely free. And you know, what it turns out? That's not just India ah music industry. Reporting twenty seventeen estimated one point three billion people around the world are using YouTube to listen to music, but I'm getting off topic here in an interesting way, though. But yes back to India so Spotify entered the market on the later side and in order to try to go up against this pretty heavy competition. They needed to come in prepared Indian customers were expecting this big international famous app with this great reputation to really deliver to the best selections of songs and the best playlists in India. That means both big Bollywood hits and western pop music. The industry is pretty fragmented. I you've got these big international labels like Sony and Warner Music group, then they're all these Indian labels Uduas that specialize in Bollywood and lots of little ones that specialize in a specific region or language. This is a country with twenty two official languages that is a lot of official languages so many. Spotify needed to make new deals with indie. Labels and expand their deals with international wants to include India. That's where the real trouble started, the company spent months and months negotiating with all of these different labels. Meanwhile, the CEO kept getting asked winter you launching an India on his earnings calls and then finally boom big progress. Spotify announces that it has made a deal with this huge local label called t series to stream its music and just to give you an idea of the size of t-series. It's YouTube channel has the most subscribers of any YouTube channel in the world. Now reports start coming out that Spotify in India's gonna launch this teaser is deal on January thirty first, but that day comes and goes and music fans in India, or like what gives turns out Spotify and Warner Music group. Just can't agree on a deal. The two sides end up in this messy court battle that in fact is still going on when Spotify finally launches at the end of February. It does. So without songs from artists that belong to Warner Music publishing division Indian customers on Twitter start complaining their favourite songs by Shirin Cardi B Led Zeppelin. They aren't available. So you can see how difficult it was to launch in this market customers that are hesitant to pay stiff competition and legal problems.

The two countries are negotiating to end trade war was triggered by President Trump's demand for better terms. Now, it's easy for the Chinese to say promise to buy more US goods. They've got the money, but it's hard for China to alter a basic fact of its economy, unlike the US government, China's government owns half the country's largest companies and many receive big subsidies that is the advantage.

We had five hundred people employed in the US, and we went down to five Korch Marseille big problem for companies like his brutal competition from Chinese rivals. He says they can undercut his prices because they're subsidized by their government. And this is at the heart of the current trade talks the extent to which China props up its companies just last week. Massachusetts congressman Richard Neal who heads the powerful House Ways, and means committee spoke about it, the China that we trade with and compete with today is very different from the one that we had hoped would emerge. China's economy which has taken on some market characteristics remains fundamentally state directed. More than half of China's biggest companies are owned by the government. They include essential sectors, like railroads energy shipbuilding and telecommunications like government officials also maintained strong ties to. Private companies says Jennifer Hillman of Georgetown, University Law Center, they're able to direct resources and push resources into those industries in those entities that they are trying to favor Hellman notes that communist party members sit on the board of virtually every big Chinese company, the four largest banks are controlled by the government, Mark. Woo of Harvard Law School says even when a Chinese company is privately-owned it works hard to stay in Beijing's. Good graces people understand what the objectives are in Vail operate within those confines. It's especially true when the state exerts strong of control over the key elements of the economy as the Chinese economy still does it wasn't supposed to be this way when China joined the World Trade Organization in two thousand one it agreed to reform it system to become more free market, but Patrick show Vanik of Silvercrest asset management says events of the past decade have made China more confident about its own system in the wake of two thousand. And eight financial crisis. China took a different look at what it's economic model should look like and a model that was more state-driven looked a lot more attractive to them under president Xi Jinping, the government's role in the economy has only gotten bigger US officials say these policies violate the spirit if not the letter of trade law and they've pressed Beijing to stop subsidising businesses. But the ties between the government and business in China can be okay. So Vanik says Chinese officials know how to give preferential treatment of their own companies at the expense of outsiders without leaving their fingerprints anywhere. They will just say, well, there's a slowdown in inspections of this type of product from your country. It's for safety. It makes it hard for the you didn't turn around and say, okay, you're engaging in an elective because there's complete deniability Harvard's, Mark. Woo says the Trump administration needs to be realistic about what it can achieve too. The extent were expecting major fundamental structural reforms. That's going to be very difficult to obtain because they see this governance structure as having been vital for both their political economic successes.

Unsung Economists: Sadie Alexander
"In nineteen twenty one. But because of a race nobody would hire her as an economist. So a few years later, she got her LA degree and went on to have a lustrous career as a civil rights lawyer Bucknell university professor Nina banks has been researching the career in life of Sadie Alexander for almost two decades. And she's working on a pair of books about Sadie Alexander. But economists have not been really focused on her work because of the I think the the belief that when she wasn't able to practice economics that she really stopped focusing much on ecconomic issues, but I really found that that wasn't the case that for forty years, at least she was giving speeches around the country and all of those speeches dealt with issues that that dealt with the status of African Americans. So we don't have recordings of those speeches. But we do have the transcripts and in those speeches Sadie Alexander had fascinating things to say not just about issues that were relevant during her time. But about issues that still matter now, this is the indicator from planet money. I'm Stacey Vanik Smith. I'm caught of Garcia today on the show.

Businesses were letting workers go the year before that speech. President Franklin D Roosevelt had given a famous speech of his own in which the president had argued for a second Bill of rights and one of those rights would be the right to employment for anyone who is willing and able to get a job. In other words that the economy should propential- be at full employment where anyone who wants to work can find work. This would alleviate the economic insecurity of those marginal workers constantly wondering if they were about to be unemployed. Now, it was already understood at the time that win the economy is at full employment workers get paid more. Because when everyone who wants a job can get one then companies have to compete with each other to attract and hire workers and also to keep their own workers from leaving them for another job and the companies compete with each other by offering better wages and working conditions to workers city Alexander's early. Distinct contribution economics was her argument that full employment was also absolutely necessary. For achieving racial equality. So Sadie Alexander believed that having a fully employed labor force would increase workers pay and they're purchasing power. But of course, this could not occur. If whites continued to exclude black workers from having the right to work, so Sadie Alexander said that full employment was quote, the only solution to the economic subjugation of the negro and of the great masses of white labor. Obviously Sadie Alexander was speaking during a time in which segregation was both legally and informally embedded across American society, American institutions, and that segregation extended to the labor market in which many white workers viewed block workers as rivals as competitors for jobs. CD Alexander made the argument that in order to get rid of economic, insecurity, the whole working class people from all racial and ethnic backgrounds were in it together that they would all benefit from an economy at full employment, and that full employment could not be defined as just. Full employment for white workers. It had to include everyone because let's say that white workers were full employment. But black workers were not then not only with the black workers experienced the hardships of unemployment, but also white workers might continue to see unemployed black workers as threat to their jobs. So if everyone who wanted a job had a job there might be less suspicion between workers of different races, which would make it more likely that the white working class and the black working class would work together to bargain for better, wages and working conditions. Another part of CD Alexander's argument win the economy is not at full employment and therefore businesses don't have to pay higher wages than the owners of businesses can keep more of the profits for themselves at least in the short term. But need a Bank says Sadie Alexandra argued that this eventually leads to rising inequality and will become a big problem for the whole economy because if you exclude a big class of workers from having jobs, it means there are fewer people earning the money to buy the goods that were made by those businesses in the first place. Which again eventually could lead to an economic downturn. But you could prevent that outcome by increasing the earnings power of all workers. And again, that's what happens when the economy is at full employment. And then finally Sadie Alexander argued that full employment would free people from material want from deprivation or starvation or from a lack of basic needs. And so they would then also be free to pursue higher goals to realize their potential professionally and personally, and that would make it less likely that workers would become disillusioned with the government itself or with democracy, and like president Roosevelt Sadie Alexander feared that economic insecurity would result in quote, men and women who have lost hope demanding a dictator to take over the reins of government Sadie. Alexander was not a socialist. She believed in regulated capitalism says Nida banks, but she did also believe that the government had an active role to play in a cheerful employment for the economy when the private sector couldn't do that by itself. She. Envisioned a public work programme that addressed pressing needs that would enhance people's well-being she focused on improving housing conditions in urban slums or providing electricity to every form she talked about reducing illiteracy, reducing hunger and making sure that people were properly clothed. That's typically not what we think about today when we focus on public works as part of this goal of cheating full employment for the economy Sadie. Alexander also argued that the government should guarantee a job to people who would want one and professor banks believes that Sadie Alexander might even have been the first economist to make that case. In fact, a national jobs guarantee is a policy idea that is being hotly debated right now something else that communists are debating right now is the question of whether the economy is in fact at full employment, and there is obviously no way to know for sure how Sadie Alexander would answer that question. But here's what we can say the labor market has improved. A lot in recent years and the unemployment rate for black or African Americans has mostly been falling during that time. But at six point eight percent, it is almost twice as high as the unemployment rate for white Americans, which is only three point five percent. And according to the Economic Policy Institute, a think tank, a black worker with the same education as a white worker is only getting paid roughly eighty percent as much as the white worker, and that applies at every educational level, and that wage gap is bigger now than it was back in the year two thousand it. Of course, it isn't just in the economy where there still exist big racial disparities. Another place is in the very disciplined that Sadie Alexander tried to enter nearly a hundred years ago economics to see this. You just have to look at the numbers numbers that Anna Gifty Poku Osman senior at the university of Maryland knows really well, so basically in between two fifteen to sixteen five out of one thousand one hundred and fifty eight doctoral degrees and economics where worth of black women. So that's. Less than half of one percent. One half of one percent. The numbers for black men. Earning PHD's and for black undergraduate economics degrees are only slightly better. But in is trying to do something about this. She co founded the CD collective in organization that wants to create a better environment for black women to go into economics and this weekend. The Sadie collective is hosting the inaugural Sadie TM Alexander conference for economics. Anna says that it just felt natural to Namie organization and the conference after Sadie Alexander, we she was very interested in economic equality in advocating for marginalized groups is so we felt that that was in line with our overall mission sort of equalizing the playing field by giving black women the same opportunities that we've been seeing other people received in the field the conference is sold out which along with the papers and the upcoming books from Nina banks suggests that the legacy work and speeches of Sadie Alexander which had been forgotten for so long. 'economics might soon. Find a new and growing audience. This episode of the indicator was produced by Constanza yard, oh, edited by

"Listen to this mind-blowing latest last November, this is from college fix. Last November, Portland state university political science professor Bruce Gilley was scheduled to deliver a speech at Texas Tech university where he to discuss his findings from years of research. I'd like to have them on by the way. I'm very interested in the colonialism issue morally. Global colonialism research, which argued that in many cases, when European colonialism ended life got much worse for the population which had once been under foreign rule in a recent phone interview. Guilty noted the argument that there were benefits to colonialism isn't being new or novel one he is collected a twenty five page bibliography, quote gathering together evidence supportive of a strong and overwhelmingly positive impact of colonialism on the colonized areas. Not only was colonialism objectively beneficial Gillies said colonized people recognized as such and welcomed it as supported it and made it legitimate. Nonetheless, Gillies planned speech was met with virulent resistance from Texas Tech faculty members, nearly two dozen of whom signed a letter to the school's president attempting to have Gillies talk titled the case for colonialism cancelled. They call the. A twenty seventeen peer reviewed paper Gilly had published in the journal third world colty discredited and racist. Okay. So there it is. Well, listen to this. The next day Texas Tech, president Lawrence show VAT show, Vanik responded, telling the dissenting professors Gillies speech would go on. Get while appearing to support free speech on campus. Sco Vanek added. He emphatically believes there is no case for colonialism. We believe that even speech. We disagree with intensely is protected by the constitution. Thus notwithstanding our strong disagreement with Gillies ideas. Do you think you read one of Gillies ideas? Say president of a university or being accused credited at least he's having. He he wants him to come. Gilly accused shivani of being a typical university administrator wanting to check the box of being diverse and inclusive. So anyway, did he get to speak? What happened? He did speak. Did they interrupt him? Let's have him on. Ladies and gentlemen, I think morally I don't think like the left things the left thinks in terms of power and weakness big and strong west than non west black and white. I think in terms of good and evil. That's the reason. I lo- the left because what was what is the latest X? The latest example of of of the left not opposing evil is is Bernie Sanders and an AO. And supporting the d'oro. Nothing like living in America and telling Venezuelans to search garbage cans for food. The reasons I loathe the left from an early age. I thought I was a liberal, and I still am ironically, I I don't know one liberal idea that I've rejected from my childhood. That's the amazing thing liberals were for integration. The left is against liberals were for race. Blindness left is against it. Liberals were pro Israel left hates Israel. It's just liberals were for for strong family. The the left doesn't give a damn about the structure of a family. Everything is equally good. And so on and so forth. But the reason that I really low the left loathes the left was because it wasn't anti-communist. So I realized they don't give a damn about evil the suffering of others. They only give them about the right? Yeah. I'll read you about Sanders and AFC and Maduro said editorial in the in the Wall Street Journal, the editorial board wrote a piece condemning them for their statements with regard to Venezuela. So anyway, since I think in terms of good and evil. I don't ask. I don't have an instinct about colonialism. I wanna know. Did it do any good? I wish there were a vote. I wish there were vote among Indians. That's the subcontinent of India in Asia. Looking back. Do you believe that it was a net a net negative to have the British to be part of the British empire or a meth positive. That's that's.

I watched I got almost a little emotional, but there was really digging into some sensitive questions about families. And you mentioned the focus on women that there seems to be a gender divide that realize exposed here. Yeah. I think that most of the episodes that feature heterosexual couples do illustrate a kind of a responsibility that the woman often feels for household management. And I think that one of the things Murray condo wants to do is remove some of that burden less by redistributing work, and partly just by lessening the overall amount of work. Now, there has been some backlash against her on social media. And then backlash to the backlash suggests there's racism involved in the back was what exactly are you making of all that what's going on? Well, there's been some backlash that has to do with things. Like, how dare you suggest? I throw away my books. There are people for whom you know, you might. His well suggest that they throw away their pets. It's very personal and intense for them. Sure. I don't think all of that is necessarily racist. But I think there is an element of dismissive nece toward her that is probably more likely in any show that involves women of color. Vanik does other hosts of shows I do think there's a little bit of kind of exotic sizing her that can be unfortunate. And sometimes I think he missed the nuance of what she's saying because the English translation doesn't always capture all the nuances of the Japanese language that she originally is working in what's the most important thing you've learned from her. I think the most important thing I've learned from her is that she wants you to value the things that you own and only the things that are really valuable to you have less stuff by less stuff. It's not necessarily a matter of throwing all your stuff away over and over and over again, it's just a matter of living with less things..
