"US Government is taking aim at ten cents, gaming operations I'm Madrid and the sports minute presented by you sports network according to a Bloomberg report, which I will link below the trump administration has asked gaming companies related to ten cents to provide their information on security protocols when it comes to the Chinese Mega Company, the Committee of foreign investment in the US which is chaired by the. Treasury Department sent letters to major game companies including riot games and epic games. The trump administration is taking a much closer look at security concerns as regards to use your data with Chinese companies popular in America primarily that attention has been on Tiktok but ten has also seen plenty of attention as well. Particularly, it forced the sale of the companies US operations to Oracle earlier this week. EPA gains would likely welcomed the freedom from ten set. If we're going to be honest, the company only owns a minority share albeit forty percent of the company. But Tim Sweeney Fico has publicly stated that tencent doesn't control the decision making within the company that also makes it incredibly unlikely Sweeney's handing over user data in droves to. Epic Games of the success of fortnight is a much different company now than it was when tencent. Of It. Right Games on the other hand is in a bit of a tougher situation. tencent owns the entire company and losing North America operations would be pretty brutal for riot well, leagues. Popular, globally riot was still found in the US and is based in La. Now maybe getting ahead of myself here all that's happened today is letters went out regarding personal security of users if epic had proved that that data is all Safin contained, that could well be the end of it. But. There's an inkling, some of the same security concerns present with Tiktok or President Ryan epic that would be a pretty big issue. We'll be sure to update you further on any developments that arise from his inquiry.

U.S. Agency Urges End To Below-Minimum Wage For Workers With Disabilities
"So for 82 years, American labor law has had a carve out for some workers with disabilities they could be paid less than minimum wage. This was meant to encourage employment of more people. But today a top federal civil rights watchdog says the exemption should end because it's been trapping workers in job programs that they call exploitative and discriminatory. NPR's Alina, sell your reports. Jerry Dagostino had a job but couldn't afford a few things he wanted to do, like, go out to eat. Sometimes daughter more days go to events. He was working alongside other people with disabilities at a center in Rhode Island, doing what he calls bench work road tasks like fitting rings into heating tubes. Packaging ice packs, assembling boxes for jewelry. If I remember correctly, my first my first paycheck was only 12 box. I just question myself a cz. You know, I really don't want to keep doing that worked for my whole life. Dagostino now works at a supermarket where his paycheck is a lot more than $12 total. But he spent years in that center which made him below minimum wage, thanks to that carve out in the labor law. Centers like that are often called sheltered workshops because they keep people with disabilities in a separate cluster there, pay is estimated to average $3.34 an hour. To calculate individual pay. The center's regularly time their workers comparing how fast they do tasks to an experienced non disabled worker half as fast half the pay Now the U. S Commission on Civil Rights says this programme and the law should be phased out. In short. The program doesn't work and it is designed in a way that it can't work. Catherine Lehman chairs the commission, she says. Instead of expanding opportunities, the program's limit them don't really prepare people for work in the community jobs with regular wages. I was. I was ashamed of the ways that we have operated now over a decade's a federal assumption that people with disabilities Are less capable full employment than people without disabilities. A lot of data are missing about sub minimum wage programs, including how many people they employ. Estimates range from 100,000 to 4 times that Most have intellectual and developmental disabilities. Commonly, the program's a run by nonprofits. They get state and federal money to support these jobs. Many of them have government contracts. And their most vocal supporters are some of the workers families who want the programs to remain an option, a safe environment for relatives with disabilities. One mother, Linda Howe, from Wisconsin, testified before the Civil Rights Commission in November. We're parents with their son's best interest at heart. Any suggestion that we would allow him to be taken advantage of our discriminated against is an insult. Families like hers helped workshops flood the commission with a record number of comments asking to let the program's B Some described workers with quote severe disabilities worried about where they'd go, Lehman says that is why her agency is recommending a careful, gradual phaseout. Disability rights advocates have wanted such a phase out for years. They point to success stories of people thriving outside of the systems that underestimated thumb A new Lewis. We're now fights against sheltered workshops at the National Federation of the Blind, testified about his past work running one thinking he was doing the right thing, And because of that misguided compassion, these individuals been significant part of their lives. Wasting away in that works out making money for our center but wasting away. And I I'm just sitting here really feeling sad about what I perpetuated because there is a better alternative. Four states have abolished sheltered workshops to support more jobs in the community. Seven states have moved to end wages below the minimum. Several federal bills trying to do so on a national level have so far failed.
Around 860,000 people filed for first-time jobless benefits last week
"Report that shows us how many people file for initial unemployment benefits the week before. For the last couple of weeks, the number's been below one million. It is again, the Labor Department says 860,000. Americans file initial claims last week that is down a bit from the week before and about what was expected. Encouraging words from the Federal Reserve. The nation's central bank says it'll keep interest rates near zero for years and take other steps to help the economy recover from the pandemic. The Federal Reserve's response to this crisis has been guided by our mandate to promote maximum and planet and stable prices for the American people. Along with our responsibilities to promote the stability of the financial system that chair Jerome Powell was upbeat about unemployment, He says the fat expects the rate to be 7.6% by the end of this year, better than the 9.3% forecast in June.

Update On The Leadership Conference In Sweden
"The world is ripe and ready for restarting and looking ahead. So where better to get a clear and uninterrupted view than from the eastern Swiss Alps and that is the setting for the chiefs. Monaco's. Conference which welcomes visionaries, founders and industry leaders for look ahead how business and indeed the whole world could move forward from here well. Is, tyler lay and he students all through the day's event at Subaru in summer. It's and I'm delighted to say he's taken a moment out of the conference to join us now to tell us what is happening where he is tyler apart from the obvious attraction from the chairlift right to an Alpine dinner, it must feel good to bring people together again. Good afternoon. Good afternoon Emma absolutely, and I think that has been one of the probably. Comment people just feel so good to be out in the world again and just meeting people in a setting which feels pretty normal I. I don't think there's much going on here that would make you think otherwise that we are still in in the midst of course cases rising in Europe, we have Orrin teams being imposed and and and borders also going up as well. So I I think that is. One of the people are just happy to be together and be listening to great ideas and and and I think also to be challenged. A little bit as well. We'll Tennessee little bit more about these challenges because people are coming together facing momentous challenges. What is it the world trying to focus on here? Well number, we just had a failed bomb nora failed bomb is the CEO of vitro. Of course, one of the world's most respected design brands I imagine in many many listeners right now are right likely sitting on a beatrice AU faux or chair or stool or in front of a desk. Here's a business, which is which is completely focused on the topic of what is going to happen to our city centers you know will work from home account for fifty percent of the workforce is going to be twenty percent. So we tackle that issue. It. With her and it was interesting. You know she was talking about are we may be moving into a world of spoke Yes. They'll be a main office in a city that will there almost almost More like owned and operated co working spaces where people come together. So that was one topic but then we just had a our he's the head of the the intermeshed. With the Red Cross and the and he was looking at at the current crises. The fact that we have a pandemic Emma but of course, get thirty messy parts of the world is he talks about this hasn't gone away and he's just a literally almost fresh off the plane from a mission in Mali, And Burkina into Hell region. What I find interesting is is the names of the people you've gathered that. We oversee have world of of of of vitro, but then. We have the head of security policy in the Swiss Federal Department of Defence Civil Protection and sport you mentioned now we have the head of the red. Cross. These are figures from the world of dealing with emergencies. Does that reflect the kind of times that we're in? Will it does because you're going to have an informed view about about risk and where the world is going. Then I think you do need people who are at the pointy end that that point he and might be how is a small but very economically successful. Country like Switzerland, how is it going to navigate geopolitical issues that wide Switzerland potentially need forty new fighter aircraft at a time when people talk of drones and and country, which is known as being neutral, and at the same time, you also want to hear from someone who's the head of risk for one of the biggest banks who can of course, apply some of these elements as well to a of. Course, the end consumer, the person who wants to go in byproducts from that that bank and how does that impact your day to day? How are we able to look ahead at the moment I mean is what we're talking about today stuff that we need to deal with at that pointy end in the next six months to one year or is there any sense yet that people can sink a little further ahead? Well I think actually North Alabama interesting because someone else oppose a similar question about short-term. What are you doing right now with marketing just how do you look at advertising? How do you promote a brand right now how do you stay top of mind and then what you do long term and her response with where we're a family company from Basel we have time and and so of course, we continue to develop an invest in great furniture and we and we take we take a long-term view. And yes you also have to be mindful of of the realities of up today as well. I mean is she's a little later on the conference to be talking about. The chiefs as a future when you talk about sustainability. And yesterday, the president of the European commissioners of a funder line was saying that we will rebuild our way out as a covert pundit DEMOC following an entirely green agenda. But when you have things like you know you're orderbook isn't as full as it should be your staff coming back from furlough and you're thinking, how am I going to make it through the next six months and people are saying actually you need to be green a you need to think about this you need to think about that. The priorities become quite quite challenging they. Absolutely. And I think that you know that that is one of the topics I mean, how much does you could talk about sustainability all you want but you know does. Your does your program, which of course has the best intentions is that we need to take a back seat for because you know that was going to involve retooling your factory. You knew that it was going to actually mean of course, upping the prices or accepting a more expensive supply chain, and maybe that has to get not kicking the grass necessarily, but it maybe has to drift out maybe three years I according to your plan and i. think that is also something we've heard you today is well, if if you're going to do these things aren't easy a lot of his. Let's walk at first before we talk and try to either talk green credentials are sustainability agenda and I think actually on that probably the one thing that I think is really coming out of the conference so far I'm as is. Being a by the let's let's let's invest in things that last And it really interesting to hear. You have MS failed I'm talking about you know if you go and buy an eames chair and I believe you're probably sitting in an email chair right now if I know it studio you're in. Those comes with a thirty year guarantee. Extraordinary and you know that has to be now and again you know is the entire chair perfectly sustainable no but it's not going to be in in five years either it's absolutely not in it's been comfortable for very long time finally looking into this afternoon. You're taking the floor talking to us about a few things that have caught your eye that you like and that if it's inspired you I mean we we have to be lifted out of this somehow what are you talking about them? Well. After lunch I I do a spin around the world and of course, the look at some things that yeah. Basic things that I that I experienced in everyday life, which which I think are are interesting that we we might need we might need more of so and I think probably one thing I was going to slide them. And you'll appreciate this. There's a lot of Austria and they're the world maybe needs a little bit. You know even though of course I'm standing in Switzerland at the moment. But if I if I look across the the mountains look across the border I know that Austria lies beyond and there's definitely whether it's brands whether it's the urban interventions that the world needs a little bit more Austria it full of wisdom of real and I'm just Sitting next to our affairs at a Christian mccue is half Australian I've never seen warranties thumbs up in all my days time. Thank you so much.

How the Gates Foundations values shape the world
"This week we've been talking with Bill Gates copy of the bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and is trying to eradicate polio and malaria globally gates created a billion dollar climate investment fund. He has funded multiple factories to find a vaccine for Covid nineteen and the foundation is matchmaking companies around the world to get that vaccine distributed. Gate. Doesn't the position to do all of this because he's one of the world's richest people because he co-founded Microsoft and to be honest that's a little weird. So in part three here I asked Bill Gates how his philanthropy ends up doing. So much of the work of government he said some of it is mission creep take malaria. When we started out, we mostly thought that we would just increase the arm de because. You know for malaria, the people who die which at that time was over a million children a year they don't have enough money to have a voice in the marketplace. So there was no. Science, or willingness to fund on their behalf in a capitalistic system. And there was a little bit of foreign aid but much. So we came in, is the the biggest player in Malaria Ding. At first, I thought our role would just be to create the drugs and the nats. And that we weren't mean to fund the actual delivery side. Because once we have the tools. The uptake would be there in fact, it turned out that. It was much harder to. Have things delivered than we expected. So we were CO founder the Global Fund. Goes after three diseases HIV to Berkeley similar, and we were a founder of this Kavi organization that buys vaccines for the poor countries at the very lowest prices, and so those two institutions which we did in our first two years of existence to learn about delivery so far actually they've probably been the most impactful thing we've done. The R. D. promises to give us some amazing things including the tools that will help ascent malaria and. Make incredible progress on issues but the delivery side I underestimated how hard it was and how we would have to partner up to figure out what kind of axiom would be acceptable. What kind of medical intervention you know even how do you tell people that they really need to sleep under that bed net and that feeds back to the design of the product? Because you're a partner in the delivering, you see what's not working and we thought we could get women to take a daily pill. For, HIV prevention. And the uptake on that very very low, and so now we're working on something that you'd only have to take either a shot or a pill every ninety days because it looks like that would get uptake, but you're driven by the limitations of of uptake, and so that's why we've got to be deeply involved not just in rnd, but also the delivery side at what point do your priorities, the priorities of the foundation end up becoming the priorities for the world, and you've described a sort of a series of unintended consequences that pull you in deeper and deeper to. Ultimately, the work of governments in no case should countries depend on our philanthropy or any other philanthropy to solve a basic need? We can accelerate the RND and so yes, by spending money on malaria supposed to. Some. Fancy. Vacation or something. Yes. The world's resources are going more into malaria now than they did before and those million deaths are now down four, hundred thousand and so yes our values to change what gets funded in this economy and malaria just. was in my view grossly underfunded. You said it was either like it could be either malaria or a luxury. Good. But there's like a lot in between there and do you ever think maybe I. Should Turn My Lens on disinformation or wealth inequality or racism in the United States. Well we spend. We have two big things. We do one of inequity in the US, which is lot about education, and then there's global health I do believe you really have to focus and become expert. We're basically saving a life for less than a thousand dollars per life saved. These miraculous interventions in other fields. People have brackets interventions through the giving pledge. Make sure lots of plant perceived these high impact things some problems. Government's spending way more than plant. Can haven't been able to solve. So mostly flat becomes up with pilots pilots. Of a mentoring program pilots of. How schools could organize a bit differently. So we do a Lotta that but once we've committed to Milorad occasion we're not going to abandon that. Sadly, there's very few fields where you can save millions of lives for small sums of money. Bill Gates is Co Chair of the Gates Foundation.

Fed Signals Three More Years of Near-Zero Interest Rates
"Fed is certainly looking toward a longer term recovery here even though as fed chair, Jerome Powell noted economic activity has picked up since the second quarter what can you tell us about the Fed's latest projections and the decision to hold rates near Zero until at least twenty twenty three. Sure. So this is a pretty remarkable forecast although not entirely surprising given the Fed's new framework that they announced. Recently, they basically said that they're going to keep rates lower for longer. Now, we know with a little bit more specificity that they see them staying near zero as you said, through twenty, twenty three, which is a. Really Long Time they're basically saying that an anticipated raising interest rates again until the unemployment rate is around four percent and an inflation is back up to two percent, which is a lot longer than than they waited during this past expansion in two thousand fifteen when the Fed raised rates unemployment was around five percent and inflation was just around one point three. So that basically means is they WANNA see the economy further along on the path to recovery almost back to you know to it someone call full hall or certainly wear closer to where it was before the pandemic hit before they start raising interest rates again. What are the projections for the remainder of this year? So they they've actually improved somewhat in they. Now project unemployment will average around seven to eight percent during the last three months of the year that's a bit lower from where they saw it in June when they projected about nine to ten percent So remember the unemployment rate hit a high in April of fourteen point seven and it was down to eight point four percent last month. So that's certainly a little bit better but I think that they are also trying to emphasize that the gains that we're seeing now. Or kind of the easy the low hanging fruit. If you will, you know kind of the quick bounceback that you get just from businesses that were closed reopening again but the risk is increasing that you know certain sectors are going to have a harder time coming back a longer recovery. So Powell has said many times that the Fed will use all the tools at can to support the recovery, which he noted has been uneven for Americans. What actions is the Fed planning to take to build on the steps it's already taken to help support the economic recovery especially on even one. Well it's an important question because heading into this crisis, you know a lot of folks were questioning whether the Fed really had enough tools to address a serious downturn and what we've seen so far is that the steps they've taken have been really effective especially the steps that they took in March when there was a lot of financial markets stress, they revamped some emergency credit facilities that they'd use in the last crisis that got. Credit flowing in kind of quality. Some of that volatility rates as we've discussed are very low they're going to stay near zero. They are purchasing making these long term asset purchases of government bonds, securities, and they're going to continue doing that for some some time there a little bit vague today about exactly how long they plan to do that. But that will that will help you know really we heard fed chair Powell say that. That the Fed, the Fed can lend to companies I mentioned another one they're doing they have the mainstream lending program although there hasn't been a lot of a lot of interest in that but they can't just give money directly to people that solely in the purview of Congress and so he reiterated again, we've heard him say this a number of times that what we're experiencing really probably will require more fiscal support more money from the Government to give to people not to just lend to them. But just to give them to help make these improvements that there's only so much. The Fed can really do right in the Fed to stay pretty apolitical here but Powell has noted the impact of the federal stimulus which we know another aid packages currently tied up on Capitol. Hill. But it seems like a pretty clear message that the Fed feels more federal aid is needed. Absolutely. I mean I think that when the economy is bad obviously right now you know there's a public health crisis. It's pretty clear the reasons for that but still to some extent I think we've seen. In past crises historically when things are not going while the Fed tends to get blamed and I'm not saying the federal Powell's comments are politically driven but I think he wants to remind people that that look. Yes. There's only so much. We can do I think there's pressure on the on the Fed there's always pressure on them when the economy is struggling to do more and and I think that smart of him to just remind people that there's another big player in economic policy and that in that if they're concerned enough people on the hill are concern especially about the direction of the economy. Then really they're the ones who also have to play a bigger role. If they want the Fed to do more, they're probably going to do need to do more as well.
Federal Reserve sees rates near zero at least through 2023

Fed Signals Interest Rates to Stay Near Zero Through 2023
"Its benchmark short term interest rates unchanged. It nearly 0% where it has been since the Corona virus pandemic intensified in March 5th chair Jerome Pao. We now indicate that we expect it will be appropriate. To maintain the current 0 to 1 quarter percent target range for the federal funds rate. Until later market conditions have reached levels consistent with the committee's assessments of maximum employment. The central bank expects the right to stay there at least through 2023 because inflation is mostly fallen below its target of 2% in recent years that policy makers now will aim to achieve inflation moderately above 2% for some time, the Fed's moves are occurring against the backdrop of an improving yet still weak economy.

How Party Leaders Get Ready for the Election in Pivotal Pennsylvania County
"Pennsylvania, a working class area in the northern northwestern most corner of the state. Has long been solid territory for Democrats. Then in 2016, Donald Trump eked out a narrow victory. Now in 2020, the county is again seen as pivotal NPR national political correspondent Don Can you sat down with Republican and Democratic leaders in the county? Jim words. A 41 year old college professor, was named Erie County Democratic Chair two years ago. He wasn't in charge when Trump won here. Still, he's fixated on the numbers just 1967 votes, so a really narrow margin and so for me for the last couple of years, it's been staring at those numbers. There are so many what ifs. What if Hillary Clinton had run a better campaign? What if there had been better turnout in the city of here? But words also gives the trump campaign credit for its use of digital targeting for getting people to make personal contact with friends to find new voters for trump factor in their social media presence in their online presence, and the kind of targeting they did, in some cases with the help of foreign actors and others, it had a very significant psychological role. What says the Democrats goal this year is not to mimic that Trump campaign. It's to build on the enthusiasm Democrats showed in the 2018 midterms and to reach beyond the traditional base. To that end, Erie County Democrats have set up field offices out in rural communities. Words talked as he unloaded boxes of lawn signs from the back of his jeep bed once not jobs. We've made a lot of efforts over the last two years to really talk to connect with rural voters. And these offices or an opportunity to help us put some roots down in places that we should have been for a long time. As for Democratic strongholds, voters are highly motivated this year, he says, and having a woman of color Kamala Harris on the ticket helps boost energy as well. He adds that with co vid driving unemployment up to 14.8% in the county. That should also give some blue collar voters who backed Trump. Last time. Second thoughts now to the GOP effort stickers these, you know, ceramic coasters styles, you know whatever, and hats. We've just gone through. That's county chairmen viral Salman 73, year old retired school superintendent and farmer showing off Trump merchandise at county headquarters. They even have trump 2020 masks despite the resistance of many trump supporters to wear them. Both Republicans and Democrats are having to find new ways to reach voters amid the pandemic. One GOP tactic Trump Boat Regatta Out on Lake Eerie What Salman says they're still doing is much old fashioned door knocking as ever, maybe more if there's a newspaper box out by the road, put it in, but otherwise they go to the door and knock leaves the bag on the door. Somebody comes They stay, you know, way back and with mask on and so forth. Democrats, meanwhile, are being more cautious on that score. Salman says he thinks voters see Trump as better at rebuilding the economy post pandemic.

What is Play Therapy?
"Are. Right we are back with another episode and I'm really excited to have on the body guests on the show with us on the data. Vargas is a licensed mental health counselor. She's a registered play therapist and supervisor, but also she's trained in em Dr and not only that is certified as a I play practitioner. So we really have an amazing guest with us that's going to talk about safe air. I want to share a little bit more about her Andrea is also the south chapter. Chair for the Lord Association for play therapy and she has specialize in child and adolescent counseling. Since two thousand six, her practice is located in a western. Florida. where she serves children of all ages teens and their families, as well as college students and as passionate about helping parents and strengthen their relationships through able therapeutic interventions and the I was born in. Columbia and emigrated to the United States with her family when she was a toddler growing up, she remembers that therapy like in most Latin families was believed to be or what unquote people with problems crazy people. So thank you and the wrath or coming on after talking about this for so long welcome to let the next therapy. Hi Yes, and so excited to be here. Thank you for having. Sat. We're GONNA talk about play therapy and I. Know some of the listeners may be hearing this modality for the first time. So let's go ahead and get started with just explaining what is play therapy. Okay. So play therapy is what you would translate regular talk therapy to the developmental age of a child rates. So when we picture adult going to therapy normally command area having a deal more or less than what they're gonNa work on on what they're going to talk about and they sit. On the couch and then the dialogue starts right. But with kids, they necessarily come up with the idea of wanting to go to a therapist. So their parents really bring them in talking to kids like most of you know if you guys are parents, it's not the same. You know some kids don't have the words and even if they do, they'll more than like me say things like, I. Don't know for energy look at you like the really. So with great, you meet them with a yards of elementary. So kids play and they also stare feelings and they even crosses all the changes that are happening around them or maybe negative events that have occurred in their family or in their life and. Of play therapies is a therapist train specifically to enter a child world and pickup themes that the child might be playing out to get a better understanding of how this child feeling what they're struggling with, and then working closely with the parents to help their parents understand them, and then giving parents tools to make certain adjustments and also the child helping them. Understand better ways to communicate or better ways to manage and culprit their Felix Okay and so play therapy involves the children, but it sounds like it involves the parents as well. Yes. Yes. I. Mean. If you think about it when a therapist needs to do child, they might need them once a week but that's not enough time to really change or enough. It's almost impossible to king somebody a child when you're not thinking about the whole family or even school. So if the child is having a problem at school, just working with the kyle limits you to what how much can you really made so if you work closely with the school, you Greco see if the parents and if maybe they're have grandparents, for example. So part of working with. A calendar understanding that they have a lot of adults involved in their life, and if all the adults get on the same page and work together that child is going to be way more successful. Okay. What about children that have caregivers or are in the foster care system? Are they eligible to receive play therapy like with IBM modality for them as well? If they don't have a consistent caregiver? Yes. I mean, when we think about foster, can they definitely need a safe face to process all of those feeling that? You know that they're feeling because of their foster care placement. So it's a little tricky because like you said, they don't have consistent caregivers, but you know if they are in a foster home, you can work leash with the foster parent and then whatever school they were going to. So maybe not as consistent because they might change the foster home or maybe they are still working our reunification with their parents with their biological parents. You can always include depending on the case right whoever is currently taking care of the child and if they still have contact with the biological parent involving his okay that makes sense. What are the ages that play therapy is best for? So people say like play therapists say that they're play therapy can work with anybody from three to one hundred and three right by it been studied and studied have found that it's most effective with kids between the ages of three and twelve. So it is possible and what about the children with special needs is play therapy also something that they can do? Yes. They are just like in adult therapy there's different specializations so they are different type. Training. Somebody would take in order to work with children on the autism spectrum. Can called off play. There's other stuff likes floor time so. Underneath play therapy, there's different branches. So as long as you are there, understand the child special need in your trine in working with that special needs population than we can definitely use sleep there.

I mean every episode is, but we're going to be jumping on lot of the government shutdown craziness that we've been covering on the show recently on Monday. Yeah. I think it was Monday. We covered the fake BuzzFeed article talking about the deaths at national parks that were not result of the government shutdown and just yesterday. What we did was we talked a little bit about say a worker sewer just deciding not to show up to work. So we'll cover a little bit of that. And so much more this week. We have our awesome guests friend of about three years now, Mr. Alex Mercedes, Alex what's going on, man. The show man how the bins been good. It's it's been real as real as life gets folks. Those vita don't know Alex is. He he's ran for so many public offices. I tend to lose track base currently the vice chair of the libertarian party and not to play identity politics. But he's probably the most influential let's libertarian and the country because of this, and that's right for like, no one who really gives a crap about Marco Rubio. Who really gives a crap about Marco Rubio? He hasn't done anything since he's walked in the Senate. So you could take his spot and Ted Cruz Canadian. So I guess you. I guess you're Alex, I guess those are the that's quite via role. I gotta play. But what I do. So each just recently came out with a book profits or generosity. What what why do you think? This was something you had to come out with now because with the title that it seems like, you know, everyone's jumping on the whole socialism train evil profits are what caused everything bad in the world to happen. What's what's going on? Why? Now, why this book? It's something that I think about for a while like the term profits generosity was something. I coined about a little bit over a year ago when the whole rent, this theft thing was come around, and I did this whole video, but how rent is not. And I thought about how profits generosity onto preneurs ship is philanthropy and kind of laboratory on that. But I felt that seeing that was such important point that I wanted to make sure I got it down. But also one of the kind of put it in a very condensed format that, you know, someone who made honestly be warm to libertarian ideas or fee market, ideas may not necessarily spend time reading eighty pages hundred pages two hundred I wanted something that was really conduct that you can read like them.

"And Furthermore, you look like you're twelve why would anyone ever higher twelve year old to cover the news? So basically beat it get lost. You have no shot. And he just ranted at me. And it was at that moment. I was like petrified. I'm sure I didn't say anything. I was just too shocked, but I hung up the phone, and I don't know if it was immediately. But soon thereafter is like, well, wait a minute. This guy doesn't know me. He doesn't know what I made of. And it kinda brought out resiliency in me, and frankly, maybe a resilient sated, no hack. I called him every day. And I'm I'm especially that I was really shy person. But there was just something like you. I wanna have a hearing. I want you to acknowledge I exist. So one of the things that I'm fascinated by is you just said, you're shy person. And you've talked a lot about being an introverted leader. And that's been a big inspiration to Danielle. And I because our team never believes this, but we're actually both really shy people. And I think the heart one of the hardest things in doing our jobs is. Being kind of putting yourself out there to constantly meet new people to be the face of your brand or be the leader that that rallies people. And what I'm asking to by as you know, we always say we were producers for reason like it was hard for us. We didn't want to be on camera. But like you actually wanted you were trying to get a reporter job. So how do you reconcile the shyness in you to kind of aggressively pursuing role? It's a great question. I had no idea that I'd actually have to perform do that in front of the camera. Honestly back then I think I thought there were only two jobs in television, you either in front of the camera or the camera person. I had no idea until I ended up getting to NBC seeing just the range of things. So I don't think I thought that far ahead to be honest. You are no longer the the novice wannabe reporter it worked out for you little bit so Lakas through how you when you got your first leadership position when you got to NBC like how did that happen? Yeah. Well, I my first leadership position came when I actually I left NBC because I had a really. Jerk for a boss, and he was what I call a classic gatekeeper. And after trying a lot of different things to say can we work differently? Basically, it was like what are you know? And I left and went to C N N Turner. That was my first leadership job where I got to oversee a team. I think there were eight of us, and I didn't know what I was doing. It was you know, it was daunting that was my first leadership job. And there was no training manual. I none of the media companies. I work for frankly, in retrospect, did anything really to train you as a manager of people. You just kinda had to figure it out. I think that's so interesting. Your path is you've done you've had so many different roles who started off as like wanting to be a reporter than you went into comes role than obviously g into marketing marketing, and then as vice chair, I actually don't really know what that means. Let's start what is vice chair yet? Well, I it it g vice show was as much a recognition of a career path every vice chair has a different portfolio. Mine was business innovation which meant I was. I was there to lead. New new new businesses so businesses either we invested in seeded or turned around so looking for new revenue from new sources and marketing was my path to get there. So from communications really became promotion, especially in the news world, you're promoting people to watch your news. And from there got into advertising and marketing, and that that became a path to innovation it may sound strange because most people think of marketing is just what you do at the end. It's the ad. It's the trade show when in fact for us the opportunity was to bring marketing to the beginning. It was about the insights in the market. Where's the market going? So became a trend job. It became a innovation job pretty quickly. Because hey, we have existing things. We can just target them to new customers. We can drive revenue anew way. So it was pretty it. Sounds like it would be weird..

I really I don't think it's that because it doesn't sound too close to bin Laden. No, no. I I really don't think. That's it. It's the hip way too bright his name on Twitter got it. That's where it's come down to. So South Carolina, Senator Lindsey Graham hopping mad today about the killing of Jamal kashogi, and how the Saudi Crown prince NBS used people in the western world to look like his kingdom was turning a corner on human rights, and that's not a recent development. I mean, come on. So this was on FOX yesterday. This is the most in your face move by mid east ally. Baby ever possibly that. The crown prince was not involved so for him and his inner circle. He's done to me. I've never felt more used in my life. I introduced him when he was in Washington. Ooh. He's coming back in owning it at least he saying, look, I thought this guy was actually turned into corn.

One of them went wrong. Gonna talk to the guy. You also had a body double apparently leaving the consulate. Yes. Wait rogue is. Hey, really, it was an organic murder. But anyway, Lindsey gone, and I'll never go back as long as there. You'll never convince me that he didn't do this and our values automate something, and I think they do now look forward to working with the president to find a solution to this. But I'm not going to look the other way every time you look at the way in the mid eighties from the Taliban Doron, you regret it. So there's no looking away from me. Lindsey Graham is right about that. Every time you look the other way once. Gets a whole hell of a lot worse later on. Well, and now he's got a buddy with rand Paul saying this guy should be replaced. This crown prince, I really wonder what he means by that. Because he's rand Paul has been one of the guys who is very much been against, you know, regime, change nation-building all that. But he says it's time for him to go. It's insulting to anyone.

"Why you should care if someone new joins the Federal Reserve Board? I'm David Brancaccio in New York. I like to point out that the policy decision, the single policy decision that affects every woman man and child in America is when the fed changes the cost of borrowing by fiddling with interest rates. So it's relevant. I think to all of us when the Federal Reserve gets not just a new board member, but a new vice chair. Richard Clarita is was confirmed by the Senate yesterday he's an academic unlike fed chair. Jerome Powell marketplace's, Nancy. Marshall. Genzer has more Richard Clarita is managing director at depan firm pimco. He's also an economics professor at Columbia University. Clarita was an assistant Treasury Secretary during the administration of George W Bush. He's researched monetary policy, interest rates and exchange rates as fed vice chair. He'll be second in command to fed chair. Jerome Powell who has extensive experience in the financial markets, but not academe like pow Clarita is expected to support. It more interest rate hikes, which President Trump has said. He's not thrilled with chirp. Powell has said repeatedly that the fed makes interest rate decisions based on what's right for the economy, not politics, but President Trump will leave his Mark on the fed board. He'll appoint six out of seven members in his first term. Three of his nominees have been confirmed. Two more are waiting, and there's still one more open seat. Marketplace's, Nancy, Marshall genzer on the fed beat out of our Washington bureau. Now, let's do the gross domestic product. Yeah, there's news. The US economy grew at a four point, two percent annualized growth rates spring into summer. That's a slight upward revision of what was already a strong quarter. David, Kelly is chief global strategist at j. p. Morgan funds. He says, fine, but has his sights firmly on the current quarter is great to see a quarter of four point, two percent growth. I mean, basically the American economy's a tortoise. Now you had, you know, got this burst of sugar and did a bit of sprinting in the second quarter. We've got this four point, two percent growth, but when we look at what's going on in the third quarter, you know, housing starts is so down. Auto sales basically stole dad. So I think rose going to return to about two percent for the third quarter. So you know a little bit of a sprint out of the economy here, but I don't think it's gonna last since you stay. So essentially we should perhaps for guard the spring into summer quarter second quarter as kind of a fluke. Yes, I think so. I mean, we had some very weird trade numbers which which contributed a lot to this. Now we actually think the trades going to be a drag on the economy going forward. As as our imports go up more than our exports. So I think the economy is so down again, but that's okay. You know, this is an old expansion two. We're in its tenth year, so I really don't want the economy to run to house right now. If it did, we'd have more problems. All right. And we're in that second half David Kelly at j.p Morgan funds.
