"Bobby, how are you? Ever. Since I was a kid my grandma I've called each other a few times a week. Cross doing the crossword. So she used to call me every Thursday to remind me to serie chickens at Safeway. We're going on sale the next day.

She's eager to shower me with pride in praise for getting a good grade. You're finding a good discount on a pair of shoes.

It's the spring of two, thousand and twenty and in the midst of waiting out the coronavirus. Parents moved my grandma into their house. When the virus I broke out in nursing homes. In Seattle in hopes, it would lower her risk of exposure. And I'm finishing school remotely. So, our lives have gotten pretty quiet. These days when we call, we usually start by talking about the weather. Beautiful. Weather we've been. Lucky really. Man, and then again update on where she's out with their latest jigsaw puzzle.

But inevitably, the conversation always turns back to the coronavirus. Everyone. You know everywhere, it just seems strange Oh. This world is. At a standstill, even a small portion isn't that crazy I mean everything's great. You know you know can go how long is because last I've never seen anything like this. I think we all through. And then without fail, the conversation ends with. Well. That's just the way. The boxers. This is my grandma's go saying whenever something bad happens. She. Says it all the time.

I move through the day trying to focus on work, but ultimately falling down endless internet rabbit holes. Watching videos and New York City hospitals, reading articles looking at modeling. Charts. Grasp, for any form of control I can. Sewing facemasks, scrubbing grocery packages with bleach, outlining contingency plans for every possible combination of who might get sick and my family. I stay up at night often too anxious to sleep imagining the worst case scenarios in vivid and dramatic detail. So the idea of shrugging off seems kind of impossible. But every time we talk. My grandma keeps saying this phrase. Function. She updates me about her puzzle. She tells me how many hummingbirds she counted in the are that day. She asks about my phone dates. And cheer pizzas words. Every time we talk.

"I'm Charlie Herder, 2020 has been an unusual year, and the pandemics effect on the economy underscores the whitening chasm between the well to do And the working class. Heather Long is an economics correspondent for The Washington Post. And in her most recent article, she writes, the recession is over for the rich, but the working class is far from recovered. Heather joins us on the coma news like Heather, can we start by describing what's happening in terms of employment numbers for the wealthy versus those who are working class? Yeah, we took a closer look with a group called Opportunity Insights at Harvard at Brown University, and I was pretty stuff that at the dichotomy we broke it up by different wage groups to look at. Everybody had a rough April. You know that matter if you were high paid low paid, Obviously, a lot of the lower wage jobs in retail and restaurants and hotels were really hard hit. But what we've seen now sitting here, sort of in the summer is the jobs for the top half of this inn Cup. Spectres have basically recovered so people who are earning stepping down dollars or more, You know both those jobs air back whereas for the lower wage jobs while some of them have come Back. It's only half recovered has to be just so terrifying. If you're somebody who's not making much in the first place, and here you are in unemployed for months. Is there any indication in the study? If things improve, anytime, tuneful, assume for these folks or have we had a reset button here? Well, it's almost gotten worse, because obviously there were the very generous unemployment benefits. This extra $600 a week that everyone keeps talking about Congress that was in place through the end of July, And so some people who are unemployed. We're actually making more money unemployed that they would have if they had a $10 an hour job. But that's gone now, and that's why here sitting here in August, and some Republicans argue all these people need to go backto work. The reality is the country has about five million job postings and still have close to 30 million people unemployed, So there just aren't enough jobs to go back to and what our analysis showed is there particularly are enough of the lower in jobs that are back at for people to go to, even though they want, Um Heather Long is the economics correspondent for The Washington Post. Heather, you have quite a background in economics. Is there any historical precedent for this? Or are you able to point to a time where we've had such disparity? Well, it's certainly on the big, big picture. It looks a lot like what we saw in the 19 twenties. I mean, that's definitely the level of inequality were at that was true even before the pandemic, however, before the pandemic, we were finally starting to see After 10 years of recovery. We're finally starting to seize. Wage gains for folks at the lower end that were really encouraging. You know, people they remember Walmart target announcing that they were going to even raise their starting wages 13 or 14 or $15.

"I saw those TV's and they are like drop dead gorgeous. Yes. especially the six series the the thing that makes those special is those dimming zones and so the the drop from to forty two eighties it's huge. So if you're. If you're really looking for every. Square inch of that screen. To be just the right color as local zones or what do it? You know each you know you, you take your screen split up into into little sections two, hundred, forty little sections, and there's an individual back light for each one that's controlled based on the color and brightness that's supposed to be in that zone. So you can actually control, they can control the color even deeper that way it's so impressive. TCL has been on fire. When it comes to their TV's. I mean when we when we talked to them in January. You, know we we've talked to them every year for the last couple of years. and. This is their business like this is their core. Yes. They're making phones but you know their their business is this they know who they are. And so they got really good TV's they got really good at screens and now they're basically looking at other things that are also screens. That's where the phones came from. So Even though the phones are super inexpensive. Screens are top-notch because they're still still a screen company that putting things behind it. In one case, it's a TV. In one case, it's a radio. But. Yet, the six series screens are. Are Incredible and I'll tell you. A. Four. K.. Q. Led screen. In in what was it? Seventy five inches thirteen hundred nine is surprisingly inexpensive.

But when I see them up close and I was like I was like my eyes got big jaw hit the more I'm like. Wow I was like really impressed with and it makes make some really good. Excellent. TV's and. And you know one of the things that you can tell that a company is confident in their television. When in a big conference room, they're willing to turn it on stage because. They're not afraid that the people in the back are going to get a picture that makes it look like garbage. They know that even from the back of a conference room, Ben Maller is still sharp. Right that's that's when he no companies confident in their television Samsung doesn't turn the TV on on stage. LG Sir doesn't turn. They don't even bring their TV's on stage anymore. But TCL, they turn them on they show him an action on the state. They're like, see, look how bright and colorful these are for you guys in the back and everybody. Cheers. Yellow.

And they'll might get altered and the thing that's on display, maybe a prototype using and. I can tell you from personal experience. One of our guests on the show here that the product that was being displayed in the booth was not real. It was absolutely a fake prototype using the old. Product inside of a new case. So, what you see to trade show booth is not necessarily what's coming to market. And speaking and thinking of interview Al Talk About off air. That's something.

This is especially important for new to this if you are. are dealing with new clients or you have new teams joining your team. The first thing everybody's thinking about when they meet you is, is this person? The real deal? Can I trust them? Will they deliver? Are they the leader I'm looking for? Is this the business or client I want to work with and that all boils down to are you credible? Let's make sure the answer is, yes. So I'm GONNA pass it onto onto, teach you today's guest teacher lesson, but I'll be back to rabbit today's episode and share with you that linked to get the free, first chapter of allowance book cracking the Leadership Code, but for now takeaway on. Hello there, my name is Alla. Pumpkins. Thank you for joining me today. Today. You how to increase your influence and impact five building your credibility. So, let's get down to business. I'd like to start by giving you thirty thousand foot high level overview of our lesson today. We'll start by looking at what credibility is. Then take a look at why it's so important, and then look at the three biggest actions you can take to build your credibility, but let's start with a story about a leader named Clint. Clint is the CO founder of a software company that's grown rapidly over the last three years. He's smart outgoing and he's great in front of customers. In fact, the sales team is nicknamed Clinton Midas because everything he touches turns to gold. However for all of Clint's strengths, he has this tragic flaw. He's consistently late for meetings ten, twenty, thirty minutes. Late is par for the course with Clinton sometimes even more. In Clint is also the master of excuses as to why he's late. He'll say, well, this customer meeting went long or this operational issue needed my time or gosh, the traffic from the airport was horrible. However is much as Clinton tries to explain and excuse his way out of it. His team is just not having it anymore. It's having an impact on engagement morale. In fact, two of Clint's direct reports have quit in the last week. And the sad truth is clint doesn't have a clue as to why and the reason because Clinton has never stopped to recognize the importance of credibility. So let's start and take a look. What exactly is credibility. Credibility comes from the Latin word credibility, which means worthy to believed. Credibility, is the main ingredient in trust and trust is the glue of human relationship. Turns out credibility shares the same etymological root as the word credit, which means alone or a thing entrusted to another. So, let's take a look at why that is so important. So if you want to influence others, you want them to do something because it's important to you. So, how did they decide if they're going to do it? Well, it's based on your relationship credit score. If you have a high credit score, you've proven yourself as a low risk, high return person and the other person is likely to help. They think you're a good investment. However, if you're a high risk low return person forget about it, they're not going to help fact is people own their own talents and skills, and they only offer them to you on loan. So having a high level of credibility or relationship credit score is your way of proving that you're worth loaning to. For people to truly follow you. They have to believe you're worth following. And how do they decide it's through your actions or is Albert Schweitzer the Nobel Prize winner. Put it. Example is not the main thing influencing others. It is the only thing. So. If you want to increase your influence and impact and others, you need to grow your credibility. To take a look at the top three things that you can do to make that happen. The first. Showing up on. Time to lesson from Clint. If I could only choose one practice to grow my credibility. I'd say show up on time you should treat your performance in this arena is a big deal. It is think about it for a moment. Timeliness is the easiest and most visible thing to measure sure either here or you're not. Fact is lateness is about much more than just a few wasted minutes. In life being on time is the most basic social contract that of presence. When you're late, your behavior sends a clear message. I have other things going on. That are more important than you are. And when you're on time, you send a clear message that you value the other person. So you to choose what's the message that you WanNa send and know that your actions speak a lot louder than your intentions. The second thing that you can do to grow your credibility is to do what you say you're GONNA do. You see when you open your mouth and promised to do something you cr- create expectations in those who are listening to you for them that promise is now this open psychological loop of tension that seeks resolution and it stays open nagging at them as they think, will they follow through or not? The fact is people crave closure. So every time you do what you say you're going to do you strengthen the connection between your words and your deeds, which is exactly what's meant by walking the talk when you walk your talk your seen as congruent and when you don't. You're not. You're out of integrity something's off, which is what Ralph Waldo Emerson Express when he said who you are speaks. So loudly, I can't hear what you're saying. See Doing. What you say you're going to do is the precise deficit of accountability. have. You ever wondered where accountability comes from. It comes from the world of accounting in finance. There's a balance sheet, there's on one side assets. The other side is liabilities and the to need to equal each other to be in account. Well, in human behavior, the two sides of your behavioral balance-sheet are what you say you're going to do. And what you actually did. And when you follow through and do what you say, you'll do the two sides balanced out and you're accountable. So a top tip around this. Do you say what you're GonNa do is write things down. Keep a written record of what you promised to do your way better off being someone who under promises and over delivers than the other way around. This means you have to be clear on your commitments and also be willing to say no from time to time. So. We've looked at our first two actions. Showing up on time doing what you say you're going to do our third one is around being consistent. This is the practice of doing what you say you're going to do not just once, but repeatedly multiple times over an extended period of time. When you start to build the deposits in that emotional bank account, your credit score goes up. The, no. One's going to throw you a party for showing up on time. However, the little things done over time compound and have a multiplier effect. As an example, take the CEO of Campbell Soup, a man called Doug. It now doug was CEO of Campbell Soup, for ten years and in his ten year period as the leader of Campbell's. Doug wrote Thirty Thousand Personal Handwritten. Thank you notes to his employees. Now, by the way over those ten years, Campbell's only had twenty thousand employees, and if you do the math, it works out to more than eight. Thank you notes per day seven days a week for ten years. Now, that's pretty incredible to me. Now, I'm not saying you need to start writing eight. Thank you know today, but I think Doug Conan's example of the power of consistently and showing how that multiplies and compounds over time is great. It's so easy in this world to think that we're too busy to do the important things. See if you WanNa know what a person values. Look at their calendar and see where they spend their time because that is the ultimate test of what you're truly valuing because ultimately, every action that you take will either strengthen or weaken your credibility and connection between. which either strengthens or weakens your influence and your impact.

On well, I can't complain not sick and tired of being in the house but you know it is what it is. relatable relatable for everybody. Florida also today you heard from him last year for our Wimbledon episode. Welcome back and thanks for joining us to talk some myths today. I'm always here to talk Thank said. For letting me letting me comeback art. Right So there's a lot of news. It's been seven months. So With a lot of stuff. Okay. Right at the end of January, that's right January. Former world number-one player estimates year announced that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer. So that was very sad I checked her social media when I was writing this down because like I said, this is in January to see if she had anything else. About. How things are going I didn't see anything on twitter. But. I saw some other stuff that she was like promoting and everything. So I'm I'm hoping that he's Okay I haven't heard anything since January either. the bad news just kept coming as a few days after that one Martina Poacher underwent yet another knee surgery after the previous procedure was unsuccessful. Just recently stated that he's begun slowly re acclimating himself to the tennis court. Once again. This is just the last couple of weeks. Yeah. That's to hear about Walmart being but esther is an absolute lack of the sport. I don't really think she gets the the the amount than do that she should be. Layers. By like five hundred state matches without almost. Like years. Absolute legend She deserves all this lowers possibly get. and also conversely I feel like Walmart game. She he his almost underachieve like e e should he also did a lot of flowers but Injuries. Yeah every time he really starts to get on a roll and starts plans to get back into the top ten like here comes into the freak injury. So yeah, really unfortunate. It's crazy but he he always manages to find his way back into the top ten and back you know making deep runs in the slams in in in winning title. So it's kind of amazing to see him being able to bounce back similar times I mean he obviously was supported the sport because we seem people who have gone through last Mike give it up and he just keeps doing his best to come back again it's gotta be super. duper difficult frustrating. Definitely. We discussed on our pre Australian Open episode that Robert Farah had been provisionally suspended on a doping charge. Short. Time later, he saw that suspension lifted as it was determined that he bears no fault or negligence would be allowed to compete again immediately. Of, course competition ended soon after but he's been very active actively thirst trapping on instagram der Rona for which I am. Very thankful. We. All Know Cedric Cubans trying all of those instagrams Lissette, a meal blast like that Yes i. Yeah, I mean I'm sure he knows they. Let me move on? Roger Federer also had yet another knee operation. This past spring he planned to be up to the French Open, but it turns out. This might have been the best time for him to have such a procedure. So yeah. He's I. I saw some stuff where he since stated data like he doesn't really know. What's going to happen next as far as is concerned right now. Yeah I was I. was that he picked the exact right time disappear. Yeah. He did for sure you know he had not coming bed. Yeah. This is a great time. So if he does come back, it's you know it's not like you superior behind what everybody else is dying but. Get his ranking and stuff will still be pretty secure. So. Obviously. Back in his thirty ninth birthday the other day. So you know happy belated or whatever. Yeah, I guess up. Have you heard about him being like more more injured than what he lets us know. I didn't really it was. It was like some sort of a quote where he said something to the effect of he wasn't sure if he would be back like he was he just wasn't sure right now. Like. He wasn't sure if he's coming back at all that's that's what I read. I. Don't know was voted the way I would. Scream. Scream but I I mean I could buy it because you know spending all this time at home with his family and his wife and kids and everything. And to have achieved everything that he's achieved, I don't know if I'd come back either.

Sen. Bernie Sanders calls for tax on billionaires' gains during the pandemic

"A major milestone for the Nasdaq on Thursday the index briefly crossed eleven thousand for the first time ever the Nasdaq them closed out the day a hair below that eleven km milestone, a record high that's the indexes six record close in. So. Far, the Nasdaq is clocked a record close thirty one times in twenty twenty. It's remarkable run for the and exit especially considering what a hit like the rest of the stock packet back in. March. Clearly, the Nasdaq is come back with ferocity it's gained about twenty three percents alone the S. and P. Five hundred and the Dow Jones indices have each clocked day winning streak and the S&P is now near percentage points away from his own twenty twenty. Of course, record highs in the marketplace seem at odds with the troubles were seeing a real economy small and medium businesses are shuttered big retailers bankrupt individuals and entrepreneurs are anxiously awaiting more government relief according to some as you'll hear, the disconnect is in part due to the Federal Reserve's unprecedented actions throughout the pandemic. And investor competent that the Fed will continue to support the markets. One former presidential candidate is calling for billionaires to step up to the real economy. Here's duckie quick Senator Bernie Sanders he is now. Calling for a crackdown on billionaires, this is what he tweeted last night. I will be introducing legislation tomorrow meaning today to tax the obscene wealth gains billionaires have made during the public health crisis. The senator tweeted a thread explaining his proposal saying while over thirty million. Americans. Have seen their six hundred dollars a week and unemployment benefits. Expire emergency actions taken by the Federal Reserve to prop up the stock market have meant that four hundred, sixty, seven billionaires saw their wealth go up by over seven hundred and thirty billion dollars since the pandemic began while Amazon is denying paid sick leave hazard pay personal protective equipment to four, hundred, fifty, thousand of its Workers Jeff Bezos has increased his wealth by over seventy billion dollars. Amazon shares are up more than seventy percent year to date. You can see this morning down by about twelve dollars. Senator Sanders also calls out Walmart's Walton family. Tesla's Elon Musk and facebook's mark Zuckerberg for making billions of dollars during the pandemic, and then trying to juxtapose that with what they've done for some of the workers along the way he then said by taxing sixty percent of the wealth gains made by just four, hundred, sixty, seven billionaires. During this pandemic, we could guarantee has a right for an entire year and billionaires would still be able to pocket over three hundred, ten billion dollars gains during the worst downturn since the Great Depression.

Beth welcome on the show. Thanks Josh. Great to see you great to be here. And our other guests is Jasmine crow who is the CEO and founder of Gooder, which is a company that I am fascinated by I. think it's one of the more insightful companies that I've come across. Recently I also have a lot of questions for you Jasmin about how the idea came to you, but but welcome on the show. Thanks so much gas and happy to be here. Of course, we've got Freddie caressed my co host. Zeroed IPO your morning Josh, how you doing good I bet and Jasmine, nice to see you. Thanks for joining us today I'm super excited about today. Yeah me too good to see you. Well, let's dive right in because we have a lot to talk about Jasmine I wanNA start with you and I want to understand I want our audience to understand where you're coming from. When you started gooder there's some kind of basic facts that I want our audience to understand domestically we are wasting seventy-two billion pounds of food every year while forty two million people are struggling with food insecurity absolutely that's a foundational mess. And it's even worse. Now, I'll of everything that's happening with current virus who are wasting more food and more people are going hungry. So it is a huge issue. Yeah. I mean just to be clear before this even. I read somewhere that we were wasting about a quarter trillion dollars a year on food in the United States if people number eight is that right? Yeah. Right Frederick in. So I guess to put an even more simpler context about two percent of GDP is on wasted food for that's a lot of money spent on food that never gets eaten in this country does Like many people I have some passing familiarity with this I. Read about it I don't even know where to start and it seems like maybe you go out and you you know you try to donate food as best you can and and I think that's maybe where you started. Yeah and it transformed into something quite extraordinary. So yeah if you know Josh I started feeding people that were experiencing hunger and homelessness in two thousand thirteen out of my apartment in Atlanta Georgia So that's where got started I found a parking. Lot I drove past it one day and I just saw hundreds of people that were homeless in in something kind of just pulled on my heartstrings at that moment and I said I wanNA help you know what do I didn't have a ton of money and I knew I could cook and so I just went home I post it on facebook I mean Sunday. I'm going to go downtown and I'm going to feed on the streets. If. You want to join me I had about twenty volunteers I made a spaghetti dinner. And loved it. You know brought out my little beats pill at the time, which wasn't that loud outside. Dating us, you're dating we know exactly when you're store your. Heckling when it happened so I really wasn't that loud music thing. But I have bad and you know the idea was it would be old school kind of Sunday music why Jackson five and Aretha Franklin James Brown like this classic kind of music and a good Sunday dinner, and that's how it all got started in. So of eighty own from one of my pop up restaurants went viral on facebook and people are saying this is so amazing which restaurants donate the food and the reality was nobody I was couponing on price matching I always say, I'm the reason Walmart doesn't price-match anymore I definitely feel like i. gave them a run for him. And then I was cooking thing taking it downtown, serving it coming home cleaning up, and so it would take me like forty hours every week I did this and I started researching food ways and was really like upset like I can't believe this much food goes to waste in here I. Am you know putting together five dollar donations and my own money and trying to make these feeding is happening to feed five hundred people

The stop them at the door give him a mass. Just where your mass to. Say. About that process. But my point, I'm trying to say some timeout the NFL. The NFL has pushed the opt out period to Thursday at four PM. Now, it was obvious. It was actually a pushed up to Tuesday or Wednesday. And then according from, Patriots, came out and said. Privilege called the NFL rushing us to do this. This is the thing. The NFL is a business. Okay. The NFL is just trying to figure out who is it? WHO's not? And I'm less and I get when this first came out I'm thinking myself. What the heck is the NFL doing they are making these guys decide. Obviously there's been so many players show fight about deller forty, three, forty, five players have opted out of the season so far eight from the New England patriots. So I, understand what according to saying, why forcing us to do this Today. This is business. A have guidelines in place at the facilities at the buildings that were at the compounds to make sure. To try Insures excuse me. That, we are minimizing positive tests that if everyone does their part. We should not have any more tests. Positive cases but some players still do do or do not feel safe Patrick Mahomes came out and said, he feels a lot better with what the NFL is put in place. Obviously his name, his opinion can carry a lot of weight. For other players. But there are still plays out there saying forget it. I'm not GONNA do it. And now with the deadline? At four PM. Is Actually what I'm very curious about. What. Happens if someone does after the this deadline do they face? Permits. Do they actually just say we're not GONNA pay your one fifty.

House Antitrust Subcommittee Takes Testimony From Big Tech CEOs

"As low as four dollars. Ninety nine cents a month stay tuned after the show to learn about their special offer just for talking tech listeners. So when you're asked to meet with elected officials via teleconference in Washington. DC along with your key competitors and you don't get too many questions. It's a given that you had a really really good week. And when you followed up the next day with a stunning earnings release that had one analysts say that his jaw dropped when he read the numbers while there's no question that apple CEO Tim, Cook clearly had the best week in Tech. His compatriots among the big tech CEOS like facebook's mark. Zuckerberg Google's Sundar Pichai, and Amazon's Jeff Bezos did not fare as well in DC. Now, in case you missed it. Let's breakdown for you what happened this week and begin by setting the scene facebook Google apple and Amazon CEOS recall to Capitol Hill for the first time in unison to defend themselves. Against antitrust charges and they followed it up the next day with earnings reports all on the same day or a mind boggling two hundred billion dollars combined worth of revenues in just one quarter. That's a little less than half of what America's largest company Walmart brought in for all of two thousand nineteen for the record that was five, hundred, twenty, four, billion. Now during a pandemic, when many people are forced to work or learn from home consumers responded by buying lots of new computers, ipads, and iphones from apple and a whole lot of everything from Amazon at a time when many retail stores were closed in this testimony to Congress bezos described it as like Christmas in March for the company which struggle to keep up with demand meanwhile. Google. Reported a two percent drop in revenues incidents. Advertising business was impacted too fragile economy. While facebook, which is also primarily in advertising business reported higher revenues but. With a lower increase than usual, which brings us back to cook. When you're asked to appear before Congress and defend your company, you're a loser when you walk into that environment says Jean Monster in investor analyst with Luke ventures a good day he adds is escaping from major blows like Tim Cook did cook was asked about how apple treats APP developers in place favorites at its APP store where the company clearly controls what consumers can see with ironclad enforcement. Apple gets to decide who can participate and can band people at will as it did recently with the alternative email service hey, which was initially rejected by apple cooks defense. It's all in keeping up with the quality of the store in that putting APPs in front of iphone users that invade their privacy and the like. But in the realm of antitrust government decreed that apple ditch the APP store, it's a tiny portion of its business worth less than five. And wouldn't impact apple says monster. What could happen to the other companies if they had to divest will you can see facebook ditching instagram and WHATSAPP apple ditching aws, which is its web services it was basically the backbone of many companies. It provides Internet services for many companies like Netflix men for Google maybe say goodbye YouTube. Google calendar.

Big Tech CEOs Testimony Before Congress

"Today was the day as I record these words the big tech CEO's are still testifying before Congress. So I'm going to have to do a summary of what I've seen just in the first couple of hours or so and leave some of the juicier question and answer back and forth for tomorrow. I up a note on the format that we've been seeing. Yes. All of the CEOS were testifying remotely. They were using Cisco Webex as the video conferencing tool and it seemed to work fairly well at least right until this very moment as I turned off the stream to go into the booth to record this, they took a ten minute recess because apparently one of the witnesses. was having an issue with their stream or feed, and I'm wondering if it might have been Jeff Bezos because at least thus far were almost an hour and a half into the testimony and he hadn't been asked a single question. Anyway back to the whole idea of testifying remotely if I were going to do one of those rate, my video call backgrounds reports. Bezos look like he was in some sort of executive boardroom, lots of tasteful Chomsky's behind him. Look like he was in a conference room at a high end law firm I couldn't tell what Zuckerberg was sitting in front of it looked like closed vertical blinds almost like I don't know some sort of like a bunker like if you're battening down your house for a Hurricane Tim, Cook was in front of some sort of tasteful plant trough though he was clearly working off an ipad pro. Let's start off with what the Fab four had to say in their opening statements. Amazon's Jeff bezos underscored Amazon's job creation, its investments in social causes and its role in supporting small and medium-sized businesses. And made the case that Hey Amazon is just a tiny competitor in a huge global market quote. The global retail market we compete in is strikingly large and extraordinarily competitive Amazon accounts for less than one percent of the thousand five, trillion dollar global retail market and less than four percent of retail in the US unlike industries that are winner take all there's room in retail for many winners for example. More than eighty retailers in the US. Alone earn over one billion dollars in annual revenue like any retailer we know that the success of our store depends entirely on customer satisfaction with their experience in our store every day Amazon competes against large established players like target Costco Kroger and of course, Walmart a company more than twice Amazon size, and while we have always focused on producing a great customer experience. For retail sales done primarily online sales initiated online are now in even larger Growth Area for other stores Walmart's online sales grew seventy four percent in the first quarter and customers are increasingly flocking disservices invented by other stores. Amazon still can't match at the scale of other large companies like curbside pickup and in store returns and quote alphabets. Soon, Darpa, Chai, said that Google also operates in a highly competitive. Market and that it's free products benefit the average American quote. A competitive digital ad marketplace gives publishers, advertisers, and therefore consumers an enormous amount of choice pichai stated, for example, competition and ads from twitter instagram comcast and others has helped lower online advertising costs by forty percent over the last ten years with these savings pass down to consumers through lower prices in areas like travel and real estate Google faces strong. For search queries for many businesses that are experts in those areas. Today's competitive landscape looks nothing like I. Did five years ago let alone twenty one years ago when Google launched its first product Google search people have more ways to search for information than ever before and quote. Tim Cook of Apple said that the APP store has opened the gate wider for software developers. Also, apple doesn't have dominant market share quote as much as we believe, the iphone provides the best user experience. We know it is far from the only choice available to consumers Cook said after beginning with five hundred APPs today the APP store hosts more than one point seven, million, only sixty of which are apple software. Clearly, if apple is a gatekeeper, what we have done is open the gate wider we want to get every APP we can on the store, not keep them off and quote. And facebook's mark. Zuckerberg said well, but he said a thousand times before that facebook knows it has more work to do on things like fighting misinformation and that you know companies aren't bad simply because they're big. And he took pains to point out that facebook is an American success story quote although people around the world use our products. FACEBOOK is a proudly American company. He said, we believe in Values Democracy Competition Inclusion and free expression that the American economy was built on many other tech companies share these values, but there's no guarantee our values will win out for example China. Is Building its own version of the Internet focused on very different ideas and they are exporting their vision to other countries as Congress and other stakeholders. Consider how antitrust laws support competition in the US. I believe it's important to maintain the core values of openness and fairness that have made America's digital economy, a force for empowerment and opportunity here and around the world and quote. In his opening remarks, the chairman of the Committee David. Sy-. Selena Rhode. Island. Laid out three areas of inquiry that the was scheduled to delve into at least in questioning from the Democratic Congress folk more on that in A. Quitting CNBC, each platform allegedly serves as a quote bottleneck for a key channel of distribution and quote the platforms allegedly used their control over digital infrastructure to Sir Vail other companies, their growth business activity, and whether they might pose a competitive threat and use that information to maintain their own power and third the platforms allegedly abused their control over current technologies to extend their power through tactics like self referencing their own products. Quote. Prior to the cove nineteen pandemic, these corporations already stood out as titans in our economy. Silly said in the wake of Covid nineteen however, they are likely to emerge stronger and more powerful than ever before, and he concluded by saying quote, our founders would not bow before a king nor should we bow before the emperor's of the online economy and quote? But as I say, while this was labelled as an anticompetitive antitrust inquiry, it seems like the Republican Congress folk were primarily interested in probing alleged bias against conservative users. In fact, Jim Jordan. One of the ranking Republican representatives spent most of his opening remarks railing against. which if that continues would basically be exactly what all of the CEOS in the talking head boxes would be hoping for right lots of distraction and no real spotlight on them. In fact, a lot of the most heated questions directed at a company that's not even present. We'll see if that continues but I have to say straight off Chairman Sicily and was very specific targeted sharp questions. He kept interrupting folks when they started to stray into doublespeak and the very nature of the questions from him and others at least so far. This wasn't like previous congressional hearings we've covered where the congress folk didn't seem to even understand the businesses they were investigating, and maybe that was because I don't know if you saw the woman sitting very prominently very obviously behind Mr. Cecil lean. Let me let the Washington Post fill you in on who that was quote as a twenty eight year old law student Lena Con penned a twenty four thousand word article for Yale Law Journal titled Amazon's antitrust. Paradox. The article described how US antitrust law isn't equipped to deal with tech giants such as Amazon. Even as the company has made itself as essential to commerce in the twenty first century in the way that railroads and telephone systems had in the previous century con now works as counsel for the antitrust subcommittee she has worked with Sylvain to develop his case against the tech giants including Amazon and quote. As I said, the questioning is continuing as I speak these words in fact I just heard that they came back from their recess. The whole thing did kick off hour late only getting started at one PM, eastern? So I don't think it'll be done before for five PM at least. So again, I'll put together a summary of all of the juicy exchanges happening now for tomorrow.

"Amazon. Has Developed a shopping cart. Is Most. People aren't aware Amazon very quietly. Is Opening, Amazon branded supermarkets. And they're doing just a few around the country is they've really failed with whole foods they're trying to come up with an Amazon branded supermarket and the shopping carts. Automatically. Know, what you have in your cart. And when you're done shopping. You just walk right out of the Amazon Grocery. So you don't even stop at a cashier. And the one thing you have to be as you have to be registered with Amazon. With the APP on your phone. And then it knows who you are when you come in knows how you're going to pay. And then the heart I know this is freaky and weird but the cart. Automatically Is. To Register each item. That has gone in there. It's called the the Dash Cart. And when you're done. You're done just go straight to your vehicle. Walmart. Amazon's rival. Is rumored to be coming out with an? Addition, to. Their APP. Where registered shoppers and it's not clear what category that's going to be will be able to. Check out of the store on their own right on their phone. It's not as easy. As what Amazon's offering very similar if you are a Sam's club shopper and have used their self-checkout. On your phone and it's great. Because allows people who know how much money they can spend to not get to the register and say, Oh, I don't have enough money for that. Were you take that off you take that off, take that off you. As you go along, you're able to ring things up. You know what they're going to cost what your total bill is and the rest, and this puts cashier jobs at risk obviously. But, the. Retailer. Is Looking to create a more efficient environment, and then the other aspect that's been rumored is that they're trying to deal with people's fears of human contact right now with corona and that's why. They're going to offer people the ability to ring up their own purchases completely different than self-checkout. This is just reading the Barcodes as you go on your phone with a running total. And then you end up checking yourself out. It creates a bar code that the greeter at the door scans with a little electronic gun. And they're able to verify the. You're a okay and you leave the store not ever having gone to a register line four one.

It makes a lot of sense, but there's no drive thru McDonald's window at the Wal Mart, right, so they're getting rid of it. Yeah, that's what's working for people Right now.

"walmart" Discussed on Clark Howard Show

"We've noticed such changes in patterns of what people are interested in clicking on at Clark deals and the way people shop has been changing so significantly so much so that an earthquake has just happened in retail. Something that. We talked about actually. On our show. In October of last year, completely disconnected from our corona virus year and it was. Black Friday. which had been like the most significant shopping day of the year that Black Friday had become a state of mind. And not an actual event anymore. And now. Walmart has proven that to be true. Because Walmart is going to be closed on Thanksgiving. This is a stunner. Because starting about a decade ago, Black. Friday really became a Thanksgiving event. As retailers either were. All Day on Thanksgiving or very heavily opened it for six or eight PM. And so all the big box stores sold massive amounts of deals on Thanksgiving Day. Then Friday black Friday became fairly quiet in retail will now. Because the way people shop. For. For. Christmas shopping had changed so much. It was so clear last year that what I called Black Friday month the entire month of Thanksgiving. Retail is now recognizing the reality. So thanksgiving. Let's hope we have football. You have no reason excuse to escape from your family this year. To say Oh, I got to go to the sales. I got to leave the house. Is a lot of people you know. Get a little worn out with that family togetherness by Thanksgiving afternoon, and you've now lost that ability. They had the steal I got him all stacked up. I gotta go. Because is Walmart goes so does the rest of retail is the world's dominant retailer and so? This. Christmas shopping season coming up. Is because of Corona virus already. It was going to be more online. The trend was to significant increase year by year in online shopping, but before corona virus online shopping was still somewhere depending on how you calculated between nine and twelve percent of retail. I don't even know if we have clear numbers yet on the increase in online shopping, but obviously it's been. Very significant and so having the stores open. Crazy hours and all night Thanksgiving night and all that. That is a look into the past, not what our future is and so your ability to get deals. is going to be more spread out. The difficulty of Getting through checkout lines, and all that that's so over. And so this is. In my mind. A real improvement in how Christmas shopping is going to be this Christmas season and quietly the announcements will come from other retailers probably in the early fall it how much they will have modified how they handle the Christmas shopping season and what I. Now call Black Friday month November

"I'm Chris Sale with me today. Our Man in Rhode Island it's Brian for Brian good to see you. Chris How's it going? It's going pretty well. We've got some restaurant news. We've got some energy news. We're going to start though with retail because Walmart, which last time I checked was already doing pretty well with the ECOMMERCE Walmart is partnering up with Shop. Affi- to expand its third party marketplace site. And you were talking earlier today. This seems like a good move for both it's the proverbial win win, but in terms of stock prices. It's moving shop up about five percent today. Yeah these are two companies that are just having stellar years when you see yet another announcement like this, come out of a shop, fi easy to understand why so Walmart is essentially opening up its Walmart Dot com platform, which is you highlighted is just seeing explosive growth last quarter, seventy four percent sales growth over the prior year, so they're really having a big success, but they're going to allow shop. Users and there's more than a million of them right now to essentially seamlessly offer their products and sell them directly on Walmart. Dot Com. So I think this is a big win for both companies. It certainly broadens Walmart's product. Offering also gives him a nice pr win for supporting small and medium-sized businesses, obviously a big win for shop, Affi- further solidifying them as the Goto place, if you are a small or medium-sized business and want to. Beef up your e commerce capabilities and Walmart did say initially limiting this. Their plan is to have twelve hundred businesses started up by the end of the year, but could easily see this being expanded down the road. Yeah, and it's you know I was thinking about this earlier, because every once in a while, we'll get you know e mail from listeners or or comments in the fool, live chat that kind of thing, and and every once in a while you get something along the lines of what are you guys like shop if I so much? and. It's. It's deals like this like. It's just they're. They're focused their ability to continue to execute. And this is. This is a massive partnership. In the wake of The recent partnership they did with facebook as well and it's. Sherifi is sort of establishing itself as you indicated as sort of like this, this Goto Platform. To me the thing that put Chiappa fi on my radar was when several years ago Amazon essentially said we give up. We can't compete against shop FI- If you're on our platform, we suggest you transitioned over to shop a FI. There's no bigger boost in the arm or vote for another platform than Amazon, throwing in the towel against you in the e commerce world and to your point, we've also now seen facebook announcing a big partnership with them. Also has a deals with them and now and now Walmart, so shop. A fight is clearly the top dog, and that's why we like it Chris. Doug Macmillan the CEO at Walmart it's. It's pretty remarkable A. Methodical investments he and his team have made in ECOMMERCE. You know five six years after. A really good stretch of time when you indicate that they really should have been doing this a lot sooner, but. I'm impressed by how they have made up for lost time.

"walmart" Discussed on The Topical

"A major gun control update this week. Walmart has started restricting firearms purchases to customers who promised to use them at a different retailer and later. That's the sound of California's newly modified bug Zappers will a larger new models. Be Able to take care. Sure of the state's coyote population for good from the onion and onion public radio. This is the topical. I'm Leslie Price and I'm going to speak very slowly so you don't get too confused about today's news. Stay with the topic is presented by cash APP. The number one finance finance APP in the APP store. It's the simplest way to send and receive money and the easiest way to bribe. NFL referees into not calling obvious. Pass interference in the two thousand nineteen NFC championship unshipped game allowing the Los Angeles Rams to advance to the Super Bowl. Oh man that was rich. Download cache APP today and get ten dollars when you sign up using Promo Code topical under increasing and pressure from Anti Gun activists stop selling firearms. Walmart is finally taking action. The corporation announced that all locations will now restrict gun purchases only to customers immerse who promised to use them at one of Walmart's competitors. OPR reporter Remmy Bergelin has been following the story and joins me now Leslie so tell us what prompted this decision by Walmart Art. Well there's been public pressure on retailers for a while now to stop selling guns or at least to make it harder to get one but this is the biggest step forward Walmer has taken yet a spokesperson for the company. Doug Marshall said yesterday that the increase in mass shootings has the retail giant concerned. That another massacre could happen at any one of their four thousand stores across the country. Their hope hope is that this new policy will offer Walmart Shoppers Protection by diverting a potential gunman toward any number of other department store and sporting goods chains. Here's what Marshall had to say. After speaking you can with our customers and consulting our own consciences Walmart has decided that we can no longer stand by as the gun. Violence in this country spreads across our stores so starting today we will no longer be selling any firearms at any Walmart locations unless the buyer assures us and is able to convincingly prove that they'll use it somewhere else like a home mm depot or a Kohl's just not Sam's Club because that's actually part of us to interesting. What's the reaction been from gun control activists? Well it's a mix. Walmart is being applauded for taking a step but some say they aren't going far enough for example how to some improve. They're going to use a gun. Somewhere else will walmart start asking customers to see. A manifesto lasted about one of their rivals or a specific list of targets before they purchase a gun. It remains to be seen. Well that makes sense but at its core the seems like a pretty ambitious and bold action on Walmart's Walmart part it does. It's easy to imagine how this can save lives. Someone comes in wanting to buy a gun walmart. Says you can only use the somewhere else and they say oh no I want into us here at this Wal Mart and they walk away empty handed. That's a good thing. And how likely is it that this plan actually protects people from mass shootings. Well there hasn't been a ton of research go off of but some experts say that casualties of mass shootings could potentially decrease gunman chooses say at K.. Mart or sears. Those retailers have very few customers so it doesn't seem likely that will follow their lead and taking action. Yes in fact Bass. Pro Shops has already announced that they will go one step further and making sure their customers are safe. They're offering anyone who purchases a semiautomatic rifle at one of their stores of Free Twenty Five Dollars Walmart Gift Card to steer them away from bass pro stores purchased was sounds like consumers will really want to keep their eyes peeled field for the store. That's offering the best deal if they don't WanNa die. Thank you thank you. The American lagers Augurs Council held a lengthy press conference today to make an announcement they felt had been long overdue bill right.

One of those big cranes moving a log around in the sky they will one hundred percent lose their shit and win a big log files and get the word timber who uncared much better than that. I swear if a whole load logs ruled out the back log trucking crush meet a gift that God as my witness I would die a happy. The man well. I suppose there's worse ways to go. Thank you Rebecca.

"We're joined now by Bloomberg Business Reporter. Sarah Halzack do you sense that. Yesterday's decision was mostly prompted by outside pressures or by internal employee pressures after the multiple shootings combination. The combination of the two for this particular spasm of violence really landed right at Walmart doorstep right. The shooting took place within one of its stores. And it's important to remember that only a few days earlier Walmart had suffered another shooting at one of its Mississippi stores where one employee shot and killed two other employees. So Oh i think this is feeling particularly close to home and of course outside momentum on this issue does appear to be changing Walmart the largest single retailer of ammunition in the country by market share. But from your perspective are firearm sales. Kind of broadly including AMMO. Is it a major part of Walmart's business or is it a pretty small one. That dropping doesn't really impact the bottom on much. Yeah it's a pretty small part of their overall sales and bottom line so in that sense. This is not a terribly difficult decision right. I think where it gets difficult. Is that add. Walmart's heritage is so much in rural America. It's founder Sam. Walton was avid hunter. In fact like part of the Walmart lower is that he chose North West Arkansas in part because it had access to four different hunting seasons right. It was near the state lines of Arkansas Missouri Oklahoma. Kansas he could hunt everywhere he wanted. So this this is really something that's in the DNA of Walmart and has been for some time and so I think doing anything that might alienate a rural shopper. Or positive is moving away from that. Ethos is the difficult decision for Walmart not to be too cynical here but one of the arguments kind of I don't know if he wants a arguments for Walmart but certainly one of the characteristics of Walmart is that in a lot of those rural communities it it is the only retailer so it's not that you've got ten different places. You could buy a hunting rifle from Walmart. That's still applies right and a lot of cases. I think that's absolutely right and I think that's what we see over and over again with these sort of collisions of politics in retail is the at the end of the day. Shoppers end up choosing the most convenient option. This the thing that is you know has the best price or is the easiest store for them to get to. And I think these conflagrations end up sort of shaping their purchasing decisions for only a very short period of time and particularly with Walmart. where it is you know such a destination for all kinds of purchases as a big box store and as you said is often the anchor of rural community retail? I don't anticipate this having a big impact on their sales. Can you help me square one thing here. So walmarts. Basically saying on certain items that it's decided to stop selling that's really public policy policy issues. The reason for example when it talks about some of the munition it says yes this can be used for hunting rifles but in theory not even in theory and reality it also could be used in these ar fifteen eighteen clips. You know the these larger clip. So that's why we're not selling them anymore but at the same time they're gonNA sell through their existing inventory if Walmart thinks this stuff shouldn't be sold why is continuing to sell it. It's a good question and one that I'm I'm not sure that I can answer. I think that it's probably just trying to do the prudent thing for its shareholders and kind of moved oof through that inventory and hope that the broader gesture of saying. Hey this is the direction we're going. We'll be satisfying enough for consumers who are looking king for it to take action on this issue. Were you surprised. At least I was surprised. Let me put it that way. And then I will ask if you were in the letter that Doug Macmillan put out yesterday after laying out all the steps that Walmart was plan to take he also made some public policy prescriptions and basically said hey congress we would like you to close on gun show loopholes for example in terms of private sales and some other things. Were you surprised that he took a step beyond just what Walmart can do with Walmart. I was surprised by that. In fact that was the most surprising thing to me the announcement because the specific steps it took are pretty consistent consistent with the kinds of gradual incremental things. We've seen Walmart do on this issue in the past so you know in two thousand fifteen stop selling assault rifles and twenty eighteen raise as the minimum age to buy firearms. He's kind of gradual things right. But the policy prescriptions. Were interesting and this is the place where I have the most questions. What I really wonder is is this the last time I am? We're GONNA hear anything forceful from Walmart on this issue or is it really going to start talking about this issue more even when it feeds from the headlines and if so that could be really powerful. It's the fortune one company right. And having that voice in the mix might provide a new and important source of pressure for lawmakers on this topic will lawmakers and other companies right because Of New York Times Andrew. Ross sorkin argument on this with Walmart has always been yes. It could stop selling certain sorts of ammunition and firearms which it's now doing but it also is a huge partner to other accompanies on say the Fortune Twenty lists big financial companies credit card companies etc.. If Walmart really really wanted to put its thumb on the scale here it could pressure its partners to stop doing business with other gun retailers and manufacturers sure it could absolutely do that but you know enough could happen just by the sheer sample of what it's doing because it scale is so massive have you know I think back to Several years ago when the economy was heating up and Walmart raised. Its minimum wage right. It moved in that direction and said Hey. The labor market's tight. This is something we've you've got to do to recruit the best talent and we're now at a point where some of my colleagues reported back in August retail wages are at fifteen year high and Walmart is part of the reason in for that. Is that everybody else by the sheer example of Walmart and the competition of Walmart felt pressure to step up their game on wages including target and others and so surely by Walmart taking this action. Yes it could put direct pressure on partners to join it in this effort. But it's your example. Could do plenty to sort sort of change where corporate America's going on this issue for decision by Walmart from a competitive standpoint. Obviously good for the local. You know small mom pop gun dealer. Who who you know in the same block or the same neighborhood is a walmart broader though when it comes to whether it'd be big box retailers or other national or regional retailers? Does this create a bigger opportunity for someone in other words if someone if not completely step into Walmart shoes at least take a big piece of that business. Walmart's giving away no. I don't think so. I don't think there's any one company that will be a particular beneficiary of this. The firearms market is really fragmented. So much there halzack Bloomberg retail reporter. Thanks for joining us.

"On the last episode we explore the contentious debate over whether corporations should focus primarily on stakeholders or shoulders old in the last few weeks. We've seen two examples of what it can look like when companies at least claim to follow through on the demands of stakeholders one involving Walmart America's largest retailer is taking matter into their own hands in the wake of another mass shooting Walmart announcing yesterday that it will discontinue sales of handgun ammunition edition and ammunition that can be used with military style rifles it will also stop all handgun sales in the state of Alaska the last state the mega the store still sold them. You know good for Walmart for for doing this. I'm easier weapons of war. Maybe what's actually happening. Here's Walmart is listening to its own customers and listening to the American people who want changes not only in the stores but in society and the editor involves the four largest automakers who went around the trump administration's ministrations new less into fuel emission standards to cut the private deal with California that is closer to the Obama era emiss- astonishes astonishes the DOJ has been investigation looking at Ford Honda BMW Volkswagen for automakers who have reached an agreement they did it within the last last couple of weeks with the state of California regarding vehicle emissions the reason that the DOJ as large this investigation is to looking into why they reached this agreement with with California. Did they violate any antitrust laws in reaching that agreement probably comes down to virtue signaling as well. You know these companies wanting learning to take public credit for green posturing but there's an important overarching question to all of this should companies really be taking it upon themselves to address issues when the government doesn't do a good job policing should these businesses be punished or praised from the University of Chicago this Louison Gallus and from Georgetown University. This is Kate Kate Waldoch. You're listening to capitalism a podcast about what's working in capitalism today and most reportedly what isn't episodes we specialize on what is not working in capitalism and out to fix it but actually this episode food is about government failures and what doesn't walking government an out the market is trying to fix it. The inability to reach any political consensus on some form of background checks can be considered one of the largest government failure in America today statistics that just was released by Ataman firm which is the largest. Pr Firm in America they ran this is savvy and they find that eighty six percent of Americans and the Claire themselves in favor of requiring Beckham checks for gun purchases at gun shows or other private sales so is not only is Lee majorities eighty eighty percent of Americans in favor of that still we don't have any law the same savvy by Edmund suggests that not only Americans are in mm fever of background checks but also look favorably to seals that support openly gay safety laws seventy two percent of automatic weapons are in favor the majority of American people want some tuition guns and the government's able to provide it yeah two weeks ago and we were talking about the Business Roundtable decision to consider stakeholders values and their interests when making businesses sessions we took a pretty skeptical review of all this Lujan. I both agreed that the government should be the one ultimately being the regulator raining in corporate wrongdoing but this time corporations are actually regulating themselves in the gun control debate in the environmental debate companies are making decisions that restrict themselves in furtherance of what they think people want at some level this call productivity is so intense that is actually getting pushed back it from the government so just recently the Department of Justice decided to open antitrust investigation against the fall automakers. Oh makers that agree to most strict emission standards with the government or California so here we have the federal government trying to force some corporations to have lower standards visibility environment than they choose sweat and last year when Citigroup was very actively involved in trying to reduce the amount of finance it was going to the gun industry there was an AH. SEC Commissioner that according to a Bloomberg report sat in a meeting to Citigroup. If You keep going this direction you're GONNA have trouble with us kind of threatening that C would take action on other grounds because of course couldn't take action on this ground other grounds to punish companies. This seems to ooh display a preference or social issues and in addition to the investigation into those four automakers. The trump administration Asian is also considering a plan to try and revoke California's authority to enforce strict emissions within its borders saying that all right so you're allowed allowed to enforce some sort of standards within California but this packed with these for automakers those will affect cars entire country and California itself doesn't have have the authority to do that so this is something that hasn't happened yet but it's an action at the trump administration is considering so kate. Why do you think besides sort so the the specific of the shooting at Walmart? Why do you think that is so much interest by corporations to take these actions that in the past they they will avoid from taking these famous statement by advance your of Disney it was saying Mickey Mouse's neither can no Democrats must be independent must be loved by everybody so why corporations are abandoning this neutrality to take positions nations that while not clearly identify as Democrat but they are clearly on the left leaning side of the political spectrum and will eliminate the innate a lot of customers? It's hard to make a blanket statement about all corporations but for some corporations when it comes to meeting compliance regulatory compliance it takes a long time. It's difficult you might have to create new types of plants. You might have to retrofit certain machines might have to make different types of cars and so when you have a lot of regulatory uncertainty that from one administration is becoming really tough to the next ed ministration is becoming lenient and then back to being tough again it makes it hard for companies to figure out what set of regulations are supposed to comply with and so at the end of the day it might just be easier for them to comply with the stricter ones because it means it's easier for them to go to stick with a stricter set then to go back to a loser set and then have to Redo all of that like infrastructure they have now. I guess a a different point of view is that they're responding to the interests of their workforce right. People who work at Walmart might be concerned about their personal safety people who you work at those four automakers might be personally interested making sure that the the cars that they produce have better gas mileage and so I think that that's another reason that has been shown in the literature as well to be associated with that our firm performance and better Labor Labor Productivity Saly. What you're saying is some truth I think that the uncertainty and the continues changes in regulation ave disrupted for business and so they want some stability but I think there is more than that I think that on a one and there is long-term thinking is ironic because in the finance literature we think about the firms being tool driven by short-term objectives? I'm sorry to say the government is probably even shorter objectives than firms and so if I I am a car maker today I am worried about the backlash against caused that might be coming in the future that might be. I'm afraid that if we don't have better standards maybe at some point gasoline Qasr will be banned together. We you don't know how the taste will evolve and I wanNA be a little bit proactive because I don't WanNa be the only one cutting down on my my standards because then it will be completely non competitive everybody else but I what I'm afraid is that Tesla will take the water order. Somebody like Tesla would take over the world and the better way to protect myself is to try to move to a better image image of cars in America and this is a step in the right direction so that's not too different than your take on the roundtable decision then that in some sense it was just marketing harkening tactic to stave off potential regulation or potential changes in the industry. I think that this is a little bit more optimistic that there is he's some long term view of what my take place in society and they playing the game ahead of that but if if these are good things and I agree with you there are good elements of these decisions. Why is the government getting so angry? What's the potential downside to the having corporations voluntarily choose not to sell certain products or voluntarily adhere to stronger emission standards necessary? I mean why is trump lodging these justice investigations into them for being better environmental compilers. It's just because.

"For the kind of products that you decide to buy instead many on the left would like to do is lobby the heads of these corporations to set policy for you and they want to do so not at the behest of the consumer because there was vast consumer outcry against walmart stock was not dropping instead what they would like to do is create manufactured media controversy and then suggests that the c._e._o.'s should step in where the political bosses have failed to act so these are the new pressure tactics the basically use a form of corporate blackmail to go after corporate figures and then use them to culturally crammed what you could not achieve politically as i say all all that is perfectly. Legal is a good for the country. No it's not good for the country why well imagine a world in which visa sets policy for exactly who they will do business with imagine a world in which visa says we are just not going to process your transactions. All the credit card companies left gets what it wants. All the credit card companies say we are not going to process your transactions if they're not transactions with which we agree. That's going to get into some really dicey territory incredibly quickly because let's say for example that you want to give charity to your synagogue synagogue or your church. Your synagogue or your church does not perform same sex marriages for example and visa says okay. We are not going to allow you to give charity using using our credit card because we disagree with your churches policies k. Is that a good thing or bad thing. You have to separate what oh you will end up with is separate chains of commerce politically speaking the biggest problem in the country right. Now everyone talks about it is political polarization but the left solution for political polarization is to not let you engage in any business in any commerce unless you agree with them they would ah. Let's not pretend that they just want walmart to stop selling ammo. What they want is for everyone to stop selling the ammo and everyone's who stop selling guns was going to happen. Instead what you're going to have happen is people who set up entire chains of commerce that are based outside of the common system. We currently hold. I'll tell you what will happen. People like me will set up a conservative credit card that is designed and oriented so the conservatives can pa patronize conservative businesses and get points back to conservative causes and we'll do this not because we want but out of necessity but you will end up with is not people failing to buy guns. You'll have people buying guns in cash which actually makes it a lot harder for people to track the transactions so there on the left and you like gun control that ain't smart where you're going to end up with is a world in which we have entirely separate spheres of life life based on your political orientation because we force corporations into taking sides that is where we're going and that is the future that a lot on the left want or they. They're very excited that corporate ceos are now getting involved in these fights now in the long term. What's gonna end up happening is that these corporations are going to cut themselves off from half the american public because there will be a reaction and the reaction will be. I'm not going to shop there anymore by half so in the in the moment they're figuring that conservatives will be saying when about all of this and they'll just continue to shop at walmart and that's probably true but here's here's the reality if they had not stopped telling m._o. Left is would have continued shopping at walmart is they like to bitch and moan about walmart but then they go and shop there every day but the corporations injecting themselves into into these sorts of scenarios are going to create an alternative line of commerce and that's not maybe fine on a free market level again free markets work but it ain't going to be great on on on a cultural level for people to shop separately to go to different stores..

It could absolutely do for that but you know enough could happen just by the sheer example of what it's doing because it scale is so massive you know i think back to <hes> several years ago when the economy aww heating up and walmart raised its minimum wage right. It moved in that direction and said hey the labor market's tight. This is something we've got to do to recruit the best talent and we're now at a point wait where some of my colleagues reported back in august retail wages are at a fifteen year high and walmart is part of the reason for that is that everybody else <hes> by the sheer example walmart and the competition of walmart felt pressure to step up their game on wages including target and and others and so surely by walmart taking this action. Yes it could put direct pressure partners to join in this effort but it's your example could do plenty to sort of change where corporate america's going unofficial final question does this decision by walmart from a competitive standpoint obviously good for the local you know small mom pop gun dealer who who's the same block or the same neighborhood as a walmart walmart broader though when it comes to whether it'd be big box retailers or other national regional retailers does this create a bigger opportunity for someone another someone if not completely step into walmart shoes at least take a big piece of that business walmart's giving away. No i don't think so. I don't think there's any one company that will be a particular beneficiary of this. The firearms market okay is really fragmented so much their house at bloomberg retail reporter. Thanks for joining us. My final two right after this the equity fund resource group at.

"Number eight has a couple of different projects under it. They acquired a yogurt, frozen yogurt, machine company that was pretty young. Hold whim. Basically you put in like a packet of stuff and milk, and then it would make for as an yogurt. They acquired that company and Bart Stein who was when before is now running a hardware effort under store. Number eight, it's called project Franklin. They've got a project coupler, which is their Amazon go competitor. You've got Katie Finnegan who was close with Mark Laurie and helped on a lot of the work with the acquisition shoes at jet because Mark acquired a company that she had called huckster and she's now working on VR for WalMart and these little initiatives, they sort of treat them as like their own little portfolio companies within store eight, which is within broader WalMart store itself has like twenty something around twenty. Something associates who work in research in different areas to try to see what WalMart should you may be temped to do next and where there are other areas where they can launch a little experiments. He's little. Experiments are run as their own nimble in, I guess, just to wrap up what let's give me give us also kind of a scope of the challenges that this side of WalMart faces, you know, like what's the baggage that they are that this part of the business dealing with as a, you know, sort of this company tries to make a big transition. I was surprised to learn that. So since Mark Laurie came on board, there's there's one thing he's been pushing for and it hasn't happened yet. So WalMart has been pushing online grocery, right? Especially given Amazon's pushing online grocery. We've seen both companies make competing announcements about launching new markets in different partnerships that they've got for WalMart as whole foods, rolls out delivery in different cities across the country. So WalMart has a separate site for online grocery orders. It's not through WalMart dot com. It's grocery out WalMart dot com. They're two separate sites. Mark Laurie showed up and he was like, why. Why? Why do we have to separate sites for this? That doesn't make sense. I actually only discovered this because after WalMart started really promoting or online grocery stuff, I did a search for banana on WalMart dot com. And the first multiple dozen reports, two dozen results on there were things that weren't actually the fruit banana. It was like a toothbrushes shape like banana for kids and then like banana V8. and stuff shall we v eight. Of course. I don't understand why this is happening, and then I came to realize others separate grocery site, right? So lorries been pushing for a while. People from jet have been pushing for a while to integrate those shoe. And you know, two years later, we're still here where two separate sites. So it's a big challenge when you're working in a giant corporation. And that's why those small experiments are important to them. So they try to move fast and see what is going to work. I feel more informed without all mart. Thank you Corey for being here and good luck, Tom..

"Walmart is the chief pipeline for redistributing wealth from rich countries to poor countries if you're a subsistence farmer living out a dollar a day in africa or asia or latin america the surest way out of poverty is take a job in factory selling products to western customers you can multiply quickly your income by four five six times for the first time in your life you can afford electricity and running water now since nineteen ninety when walmart became the largest retailer in america the global rate of poverty has been cut by twothirds that's one of the greatest miracles in human history and walmart played a leading role in so the obvious question is why is in a more popular in a why do you hear so many terrible things about walmart one reason is is snobbery a lotta people find walmart tacky but the main reason is the walmart his challenge some very vocal special interest newspapers don't like walmart because it spends very little money in newspaper advertising local merchants don't like it because they don't want to match its prices and most important walmart workers don't give part of their paychecks to a union union leaders want to keep those jews coming and so does the politicians who get a share of those dues in the form of campaign contributions from unions some critics complain the walmart cells too many foreign products as we saw during the presidential campaign it's really easy to work up popular anger against foreign workers but from a moral standpoint if you're concerned about global income inequality he shouldn't feel guilty shopping a walmart there's nothing wrong with sending your money to those workers.
