How Inflation Created the Conditions for the Rise of the Nazis

"Inflation is not just a monetary issue. I mean, I know you know this. I'm saying this for the benefit of my listeners. When I think of terrible inflation, I think of what brought the Nazis to power. I know a lot about that era, and it was not anti semitism, that brought the Nazis to power. It was, in my opinion, the inflation in the Weimar Republic, the republic that was created after World War I in Germany. So when people think inflation, they should understand the social repercussions of terrible inflation. Have I overstated the case? No, you haven't. And you're right, the German hyperinflation of the early 1920s created the conditions for the rise of Adolf Hitler. You combine that with a great depression and you had this horrible near collapse of civilization in the west. And in terms of inflation's impact, you make a very important point and we do so in this book, which we try to write in a very reader friendly jargon free way. It's not just economics rising prices, but also with undermines what we call social trust.

"Americans are witnessing. Well, the number one thing that the president can do is help get COVID under control. That we know is the root cause of inflation and the price increases we're seeing for a range of reasons. That is the best step that he can take that the administration can take to help get it under control. That's amazing. Not right. No economists. Right. I haven't said this about her, but I'll be as gentle as I can. She's an example of truth is not a value. So let me understand no economist thinks that the government printing printing trillions of dollars. Will cause inflation. If that doesn't cause inflation, what does? What caused it in the Weimar Republic? I fear runaway inflation more than COVID. The number one show anyway so she's honest. The president's number one concern is COVID, and what the hell did the president do about COVID? What can he do? I'd like to know exactly what he can do. Fire all government employees who don't take a vaccine. You think that will have a damn effect one damn thing? On COVID that's what he's doing for inflation? Or that's what he's doing over inflation to be precise. God that we live in a sick time. It's so pains me to see so many fellow Americans. Becoming worse human beings. It does. I admit, I've had a romance with America my whole life. I'm just opening up to you when I look at, well, where did Joe Biden come from? He's a lousy human being. He's always been a lousy human being. You know that even in the tragedy, the true tragedy of his life. With the death in an accident, tell me, I want to get this exactly right. Didn't he blame? A guy who was not at fault? He put the onus of homicide? I'm sorry? Said he was a drunk driver and he wasn't. This man lies with the ease with which you breathe. He's one of those. He made his whole family millionaires, while earning a few $100,000 a year as a senator. How does this decent country produce so many indecent people?.

'Socialism' Is Making People Dependent on Government

"That was funny It was just checking social media and people You don't know what socialism is Let AOC describe it for you Not too complicated when you redistribute wealth and you get people in government programs that's ultimately paid for by the people who earned The redistributive properties tend to be central at the forefront and also introduce you to by being here in South Florida where I'm surrounded by a bunch of immigrants who have lived through socialism And they'll be happy to tell you each and every day How what the human fund The human infrastructure did the human fund George Costanza's Ponzi scheme Money for people Be happy to tell you How that represents socialism And that's the bigger point here by the way about that entire deal Brian mud in for the great one Mark Levin The bigger point here isn't about the cost because that's what made up anyway The numbers are so much BS three and a half trillion Well even the conservative estimates say this thing shoots over 5 trillion but the bigger point isn't even the number because we know that any time you start government programs do they ever operate according to the costs that they said they were going to originally You know you'd have to be stuck on stupid to believe the numbers anyway They always ever run by usually three times But the bigger point isn't even the Weimar Republic style money for me they want to do in this country to account for all this nonsense It's to get as many people depended on the government as possible It is absolutely socialism

"You would happen to me and let lemon vote. I don't like that like that was great. Women they were the base of hitler but It was a great age for women's rights. I mean they were the base. I think i think just just like that's probably There are more reasons that are independent of gender that You know why people voted and supported the nazi party But i wanna talk about why because that's kind of important like what happened right this. This felt like fucking miracle an economic miracle didn't actually benefit everyone equally and the people who were the hardest hit. Were the middle class. So the the middle class in the weimar republic you know. They lost all of their wealth all their savings. Basically due to the hyperinflation in nineteen twenty-three so like if you're a regular middle-class person and he had some money in the bank hyperinflation basically eviscerated. You're buying power and it. It was just gone right. So you know those middle class people you know. I'm talking about like managers. Bankers bureaucrats clerks other like white collar professionals. You know they. They didn't come into this golden age with like you know With like a leg up. Yeah they and they also failed to benefit from a lot of the social programs So a lot of the white collar workers didn't get The same welfare benefits as people that were in the industrial sector. And so while. Generally i did say that unemployment fell lot. It actually remained really high among white collar professionals argument there could be made like all right well. Why don't you just get a industrial job. Then you know. That's kind of like the the counter-argument there but you know when when you're when you've been trained and you've been working for all your life in a white collar job to kind of move to an industrial job for lack of a better word feels to you like a regression even if it's affecting your your income But you know it in a lot of these unemployed white collar workers for one reason or another didn't actually qualify for those same unemployment benefits that a lot of other people were getting yes. They're pretty sour about that it admittedly so that's that makes sense and this kind of Created an atmosphere in the weimar republic among the middle classes that the government was favouring The the working classes the industrial classes over the middle classes. They called it a a like a form of class. Warfare to impose quote socialism by stealth which is something that a lot of our politicians on the on the right specifically like to say a lot but this was like for real z. Socialism by stealth and And then last kind of shitty part about being class in Weimar republic was that there was no major party that represented them. So you know people. The workers classes like They were represented by folks like the sdp or the communist party. The katie p And you know the the folks right. were supported by the national socialists..

"As i mentioned before they stabilize the currency that created that industrial boom but something that was really positive about the stabilization of currency. Was that the re the quote real value of wages increased. And what. I mean by real value of wages. I don't necessarily mean that they got paid more. It means that the buying power of the money that you received was higher And that increased by nine percent in twenty nineteen twenty eight and it rose to twelve percent more afterwards so actually compared to the rest of europe In terms of buying power real wages. germany's industrial workforce was the best paid in europe Said they were. If you're working in a fucking factory you're on welfare yourself And there's so many people that were totally without a job that ended up going into the industrial workplace And they pull themselves out of poverty as a result. I wanna talk a little. Bit about women women dominated the weimar electorate So out of a total population sixty million germans. There were two million Young men and women between the ages of eighteen and thirty four who died and another two million That had been so fucked up like either physically mentally that they couldn't really there weren't is like four million people that weren't going to be participating in in governance And so prior to this women weren't allowed in any political organizations In like pre-world war one but they definitely took up the mantle during the weimar republic and in those years Women voted in huge numbers and support and supported like the weimar republic Because obviously had granted them the ability to vote. so they're you know returning the favor so to speak but unfortunately by the end of the weimar republic women's started leaving those political parties. That were supporting the weimar republic. He so much so that by from nineteen thirty to nineteen thirty two so this is already in the you know we late hours of Of the weimar republic women were the fastest growing group who supported the nazi party..

But it depicts three world war veterans At a table playing cards And in just by saying it. That ways is kind of an understatement. They are horribly mutilated And they're you know they have a number of prosthesis. I think when we talked about World war one We talked about kind of the increase in medical technology.

White House Says Taliban Takeover of Afghanistan ‘Not Inevitable’

"Sakis comments on afghanistan which some conservatives doubtedly agreed with are worthy of note to you asked if the white house overestimated. This is pbs. By the way this is. Pbs asked if the white house overestimated the afghan military's ability to hold the taliban off. Sucky brushed off the question. Insisting the administration's quote view is that the afghan national security defense forces have the equipment numbers and training to fight back. Bloody lie it's it's it's idiocy. Here is here is an appropriate parallel. The taliban nazis they're nazis they're vicious. They're sadistic there is anti-human as the nazis. You know. I'm telling you the weimar republic. Hey you know has plenty of power could fend off. The nazis asked if the white house. And i did that. The press secretary said the white house doesn't have the luxury of feeling disappointed by the situation that means quote now is the time for them to utilize the training the assistance the security guidance that they have been provided over the last two decades. Yes now is the time you tell them you tell them biden administration. Hey time for us.

"Nazism would be a misrepresentation of the historical record. Right where we're actually. Depending upon the medium at the nazis gained control of them in different ways right because obviously they gain control of newspapers through three different mechanisms related to a new rules around journalists and an ownership laws and so on and so forth. But if we really going to bring the question of how it is at the nacion come to control. The media environment of why the bomber public fails into on contemporary conversations. We should do on the basis of what actually happened even if that might in some cases against all political instincts right off. Let's go gut tells us that we want if we're going to bring history into the conversation we've just we've got to do on the basis of the actual facts of what happened. And sometimes i said that may cut against people's pull instincts. But i think the other thing that that particular example shows is that it's really important to have in mind the ten to fifteen year perspective because burrito starts doing this in the early nineteen twenties on his radio on one thousand nine hundred. Eighty three this. This turns around and comes to him and ironically. Actually he ends up being briefly imprisoned by the nazis because of his principles stances so he really does soften his principles but this is another reminder. That often we're we're thinking about quite a short term gaiman in policy but in this case the groundwork is laid ten years beforehand for something but in the end will will help to hasten the full of democracy in germany and one of the aspects of that comparison that i found really useful. Was how you tease out the line. You can sort of draw not a direct line but there is a line between those early german radio. Regulations and net stagey which has A law that. I think our listeners have heard a lot about which is this German law that requires large social media companies to remove certain posts within twenty. Four hours after their flagged which has received a lot of criticism. And we've talked about some of it here for how it release. That's extremely limited time window for companies to decide whether or not they wanna take something down which arguably encourages fought to sort of over censor in order to avoid steep fines. So what can prewar. Germany tell us about. Nazi dj interview. That's a great question. I mean there are a couple of things that it can tell us. A couple of things are actually really important to bear in mind. One is the nets actually does put into place Twenty two statutes of german speech law which are technically being adjudicated on that little right and some of them go all the way back to the eighteen seventies so to the to the gym pressel of eighteen seventy fool which is under a semi authoritarian semi democratic imperial germany some of those like moved around blasphemy and saw and they somewhat diminished into scurity. They just weren't really being full stat that frequently. And so it's funny that actually. Sag has actually revived a lot of spatial statues. The that weren't really being particularly thought about even within germany says an even longer lineage than than going back to weimar germany. but one of the other things. I think this shows us is actually that as a as a lowest downing german way of trying to approach speech problems which is try and regulate them through law. So i wrote an academic articles thinking about this earlier this year which is to say. This is a much longer jam in history of thinking that when you have speech problems what you seem to be speech problems the way that you deal with that mr law which isn't necessarily the first way that you have to deal with it as a democracy but you see this happen in the weimar republic that there's a lot of concerns about content related to children lgbtq content etc and the idea that you need to protect women and children and so there's a law in the mid nineteen twenties school. The schwartz shouldn't cassettes. Or am i guess the smart little basically to try and prevent certain types of quote unquote smutty content being disseminated roles of various laws that are happening during the republic to try to protect people from various forms of content. So i think that that long historical perspective shows us. It's actually something that the german lawmakers have gone back to in successive german regimes to think that the law is the onset of speech problems with necessarily sorry thinking about. What are the other. Broadway's that we could try to attack. These problems will be think about solutions. I think this example is really useful because it shows you know as we've been discussing how history can kind of reshape our understanding of contemporary issues. I will say as someone who does not have a background. In twenty century german history nets digi as a law. Made a lot more sense to me. After reading your analysis of how it fits into a sort of german tradition of regulating speech of understanding communications and the regulation of communications as a way to sort of project national power. Whether hard or soft but i want to return to the question i asked you earlier about sort of the difference between pop and serious or bad or good understandings of history. What's the difference between this analogy. In your view and the less helpful analogies between say weimar nazi germany and the trump presidency. Because you could just as easily say you know Well this you know. Here's this line that we can draw between weimar law and nets digi. And this just shows that you know all speech. Regulations are duped as you said you know sort of go fully..

"A whole host of them came and laid siege to the White House with the active support. And and sympathies of the majority of that party. This is a big part of America we are going to have to deal with. There's no skirting that and our side had better get our backbone. We were out in the streets of his beautiful this past summer. Black lives matter is the struggle for black lives against police terror We were million strong. We actually are more people who care about justice who care about the lives of black people of women of immigrants of LGBT Q. People of the people of the world of science and public health and concern for others. Everything concentrated in wearing a mask, reality based and concern for others. There are more of us, but it doesn't count for much if we do not mobilize ourselves, and that has been the crime of this past period. If you want to know what I think there's nothing surprising what the ashes done it point It is disappointing when it needs to change is well, the decent people do. You know, I find it interesting, of course, that in their opposition toe democratic norms and practices that they do it In the name of democracy. That, too, is a fundamental fascist tactic. The that is theme, the utilizing democracy when it fits your your needs. With the with the goal or idea of overturning it. Are you related to that? There's been lots of those tons I was watching yesterday. You I, uh I usually don't have the TV on during the day, but people notified my wife and I On. We turned it on, and then you get sucked in, But I was very faint thought was very fantastic. There's lots of mainstream talk mainstream news networks about the need for the rule of law and the need for law and order. The mainstream met media really talking about that. But not about the threats to democracy. There was very scant if if, if it all prison and of course that leads down the road to calls for. They were on yesterday calls for more security that the big the big issue was. How ill defended the Capitol building was cause for more security, which means, of course, more surveillance, more suppression. On so on, and we historically know who that gets aimed at. So you know, I was just fascinated with the whole thing of, you know, the rule of law and so on. Well, look, I think I think two things on this first of all democracy. Has always been One form of rule of a dictatorship. I don't think democracy has it doesn't exist in limbo. There's no such thing as a democracy floating above the economic system that it's part of the national structure. It's part of it in the first democracy, and Athens was a slave state. Here we are in America. The democracy? Yes, it was founded on a slave. Hybrid slave system and emerging capitalist system. But even when it got beyond slavery, which was not a minor chapter and the scars and the repercussions of that they're still with us. And that was a long time hundreds of years So we can't make that like a minor chapter. But even the democracy today is democracy on the terms of the capitalist imperialist system. It's why there can be no right to eat, even if it would win on the ballot. You can't do that. When think food as your economic system only gets produced. If somebody could make a profit off of selling it, and you can only get it if you can. Buying the resource is the money through selling your labor to be able to go purchase it. There's no right to eat. There's no right to housing that is counter to the economic structure. So democracy Yeah, you can vote on certain things. But you don't get to vote on what kind of system you have. That is dictated to you by the ruling capitalist class, So I just the idea of democracy should never be accepted as a Last exploding structure. That's one thing that said, and that's why we need a revolution that overthrows the whole system. That's a different economic system, a different social system of socialist system on the way to real communism, the new communism But that said, the destruction of democracy in the service of fascism, even a capitalist, imperialist democracy in the service of no rule of law, outright terror outright. What what? What the fascist dictator says, is the law. And if you don't like it, there's mob violence to smack you down. That isn't even greater horror and form of the same system. So I don't think we should say, because it's the same system. They're all the same. And the art and the and the lesson of history. And this is another lesson at red coming at us. There is I cite a vacant a lot because he's done extraordinary and unparalleled work on this. He's summed up Ah, lot of the history of the struggle, among other things of people against fascism, including Communists against fascism. The lessons that positive and negative is that and he makes the point drawing the analogy to buy Mar, Germany. What was the bourgeois Democratic Form of rule before the Nazis came to power, he said. We need to defend and take on the attacks on the Weimar Republic take on the fascist assault today on the democratic structures in the rule of law. Without ourselves becoming like, and defenders in upholders of the Weimar without ourselves, embracing and becoming like the Democratic Party ourselves, which is just a party of this system. We had to take on the attacks on the rule of law and the fascist assault on American democracy without being seduced into thinking American democracy is the system we needed that could ever serve the interests of humanity..

And why are Republican you know Republicans lawmakers when they get going leave Congress, including including a former speaker of the House, becoming lobbyists for marijuana, which is a substance substance. Whatever you think of it, I mean, it's it's not conducive to having a constructive life or to ultimately to the social order. I think it's because they think, you know. Well, the more people are just on the couch stoned then you know, the less trouble they're going to give us. You talk in the book about a couple of things that I'd like you to expand on sees a resume. Yeah, Explain. Caesar is, um, is a form of so it's obviously named after the first Caesar Julius Caesar, who took over the last remnant of the Roman Republic about 50 years before the birth of Christ and turned it into a one man rule state. It's a particular form of one man rule. Another way of turning one man absolute rules. You call an absolute monarchy, or you can call it a tyranny, right? But it's a particular form that becomes, in a sense, it's not justified. Maybe necessitated when the constitutional order is broken and can't go on on. So you're you asked me about this. This isn't a chapter of the book Chapter seven in which I speculate. I basically don't take sides. I don't make recommendations, but I say If the president ruling arrangement is a thing that can't go on forever, and I think that's it's possible then it will have to stop. It will have to break what will follow it well, and I Caesar is, um, is one of those things that could follow it if if, if present trends continue, especially without President Trump and his closest allies. Fighting them. I think the country as we've known it could break and then something has to follow and that Caesar isn't it could be one of those things and the's a resume could Emerged from either side. It's easier to imagine Caesar is, um, coming from the blue side or the Democratic side just because they have all of the commanding heights powerful institutions in America now except one, the White House, which they're determined to get back this fall. It's harder to imagine a path for a Caesar ism of of the other side toe happen, but not impossible, and I know I give all the reasons and sort of speculate about how this one might happen. Or that one might happen just because I think no one's thinking about these things. I point the finger in particular at conservatives, you know, I'm not going to name names unnecessarily. But there's a strain of conservative thought, which is so in love with the idea of American exceptionalism that it thinks that Nothing can ever get bad enough for America for America to fundamentally changed for the worse, so human possibilities that have been around since there has been man kind, You know, the fall of Republics, tyrannies, civil wars. Things like that. We don't even have to think about them in America because they can't happen here anymore. And I think that's foolish and somebody needed to begin the conversation about what happens if it does get bad enough, And so I I stuck my neck out and did that. So Michael Anton easy author of the Steaks on DH. Yeah, I want to talk to you about because I think we're closer to these things Michael than most people do. I I could see a breakdown on the election. It's already gonna happen with with the Democrats saying Mail in votes. It'll be days before we know that will be a shock to the system on DH. It will, you know, probably will end that night with Trump being ahead. Then these these ballots will trickle in and trickle in and trickle in, and it will appear as a stealing even if he even if Trump continues to hold They are going to say, Look, how many people are being disenfranchised. They're throwing all these ballots out because the typical number of ballots on Malin that are thrown out is about 20%. And they'll make this into some new scandal. I could see either side. Standing up and saying, That's not my president. It's not my brand and secession. Serious talk of secession where states say I'm not abiding by you because you're out of control. I worried about this too. You know, I do go into some of these election issues in the book. I couldn't You know, they're so vast and complicated, You know, write an entire book about how you know to do modern election fraud, Especially with the way these changes are taking place, So I'm foreseeing exactly the same possibility that you foresee. I mean, the best. You know, we probably won't have what we had in 2016. Where by about two or three o'clock in the morning. If you were still awake, you knew who the president was going to be right? It was over on DH. You know, Days may be optimistic. It could be weeks or months. So good. That famous chapter in one famous not famous yet, but it might be a Chapter seven in which I say states could succeed and this could happen. From the blue Left or the red Right heading now and I don't I don't necessarily even know that you know, there's two ways to talk about succession. Right one is actually pulling it off, right? Because, you know The other is just giving it a try. So what happens if a stage is path of Ah state Legislature passes a resolution and says, We've succeeded from the United States of America. Well, it's not really accomplished until the issue has settled on both sides agree. Yeah, yeah, We're separate countries. Now are the feds going to necessarily accept that and if they decide that they don't want to accept it? What are they going to do about it and well, what they try to do about it Be effective. Um, these are all questions that I think we've barely begun thinking about much less thinking through. I had met a hurry. I don't resolve any of them in the book because I don't know the answers, but I think I have. I think I have raised all of the questions that we need to be talking about. And if I haven't I urged people to read what I wrote. And, you know, write it up somewhere and say, Well, Anton forgot this and he didn't think about this. I didn't think about that because we need to get on this right away. So I tell you, Michael, I thank you for doing this, from the the point of view from the conservative, right? Because I do believe the left has already war gamed this years ago. I Yeah, I don't know. They say the war game they war gamed it pretty recently.

Voices from the Holocaust with Leon Bass

"Leon Bass was born in Philadelphia on January twenty. Third Nineteen, twenty, five, the fourth of six children. His parents were born in South Carolina in the eighteen nineties at the beginning of the Jim Crow era. Just after the first World War they joined the Great African American Migration North they settled in Philadelphia with the hope of making a better life for themselves and their children. As a young man during World War Two Leon volunteered to serve in the United States army. In, April, nineteen, forty, five, he, and four others from his unit arrived at the Humboldt, concentration camp in Weimar Germany just one day after it was liberated. Forty three years later on March Sixteenth Nineteen eighty-eight Leon is sitting in a studio in union new. Jersey. He's dressed in a plaid, Brown and based Sport Code. White Shirt and striped tie. He wears aviator, glasses and sports trim black moustache. Leon's interviewers are Bernard Weinstein and mark lender. Leeann recalls the racial discrimination. He experienced as a child in Philadelphia. I went to the school. WHERE THEY! Always taught us. To Care and love each other, but also have love of country. We pledge allegiance to the flag every day, just like every other young person in the city of Philadelphia do. And we said with liberty and justice for all. Just like everyone else only to go out and find as we matured. That was not so as I found out when I went to the theater. When I bought my ticket I was directed to the balcony. It was mandated that I go there. Because I wasn't good enough to go down on the main floor. It's beginning to get a little in the site to the society and how the Society viewed me. A person of color. And we. Always went to the park. And I recall how I look through that wire fence at this large swimming pool. Which I knew, I could never use I would never be admitted. because. The society was saying loud and clear to me. That I wasn't good enough. Those are the kind of things to. Make. You feel bad. I finished school in Nineteen forty, three. I went out and I I volunteered. And when I went down to the induction center. Institutional racism smacked me right in the face. because. Sergeant was there and. He told me go one. When I went through the door, and he told my wife go another way, and so I went into an all black unit safer, the officers they will white. When you enlisted, you realize the military was segregated. You. Don't even think about those things until it hits you in the face. And of course, the thing that made it more real more painful was the fact that they send US south. They send us right into the heart of the place where people would. would. Be a confrontation. We went to camp. Wheeler Georgia for Infantry Basic Training And we spent quite a time in Mississippi right in camp McCain. We spent almost a year there. and. We went on maneuvers into Texas Louisiana. And we came back to little. Rock Arkansas. Now all these places I was given the message. of WHO and what I was as far as the society was concerned. And it was really frustrating to think that you have made a commitment to your country and yet your country is saying to you. All Right? You're okay, but only so far. I went into Macon Georgia. Attempted to get a drink of water while I was in their simple thing like a drink of water. Because, you walk around the town Ucla Fountain drink i. went to drink at. Someone grabbed me and say boy. You don't drink here. Pointed to the sign, which said White. And directed me to. Another sign was said colored. Where was another fountain and you of course in uniform at the time happened? Soldier like all the other lack soldiers we will all experiencing. This was ear perception, though that the black troops generally though. fully understood the fact that. While the rhetoric of the war against Nazi racism, and so forth will was fine. In practice, the country was doing something entirely different. It was as though you were just a fringed. Country had was to personalities Channel One way. We may make wonderful announcements. You know we we've talked about engineer. Christian ethics and We're going to make the world a better place for democracy and all that other jazz, but then when you cut down to a real thing and you start seeing the way they operate. Things we're not. And so I? Began to be an angry, frustrated, young black soldier. After my experiences. I really did not want to be. On A. Specially after. Having to stand on a bus. When there were no seats at the back, having to stand up for hundred miles and looking at empty seats. Didn't endear me. To to my country. Couldn't eat in a restaurant. Had to go around the back. Knock on the door to get food. And I'm in a uniform I. And I. Prisoners of war from Germany. Being allowed to go in a restaurant and sit down to eat, and I was not entitled to for the same opportunity.

Johann Sebastian Bach 1: About Johann Sebastian Bach

"One of your parents doctor or lawyer and maybe as far back as they can remember everyone in their family has gone into the same profession while that's how it was with the Bach family all of them were musicians Johann. That's German for John. Sebastian Bach was born in sixteen eighty. Five in the German town of is enough. His father was the official town musician. There by the time was ten. Both his parents had died so he went to live with his older brother. Who was also a musician? Of course Johann Sebastian. Bach turned out to have very fleet fingers. He played a mean violin and by the time he was eighteen. He had a job as an organist. Bach held three main jobs over the course of his life. You can tell where he was working by. What kind of music? He wrote the first box. Big Jobs was official. Court organist for the Duke of Weimar so a lot of box great organ. Music comes from early on in his career. That Weimar job also had box serving as concert master. The head Honcho violinist of the Duke's orchestra when the Duke of Weimar decided not to make him conductor of the Orchestra. Bach was pretty unhappy. Then a visiting prince offered a job directing his orchestra but when Bach tried to quit his job in Weimar. The dukes said no way he even threw in jail for a month to try and make its point but it didn't work when Bach got out of jail. He headed straight to the town of curtain to work for the prince the prince had a wonderful orchestra so Bach wrote lots of instrumental music. While he was in curtain eventually balk moved onto his last job at the Saint. Thomas Lutheran Church. In the city of Leipzig. His title was cantor. That's what they called the choir and music director and it was a huge job box trained singers organized music for several churches in town and for the University of Leipzig and he composed new music every week for services at the Saint Thomas Church most of Bach's great choral music was written in Leipzig the choir at the Saint Thomas. Church still performs box music every week. One of the coolest things I ever got to do was sit in the church where Bach worked and listen to the choir sing. His music while Bach was alive. No one outside the towns in Germany where he worked had heard of him and people thought of him as just another working musician after he died people pretty much forgot about him until a century later when another composer Felix Mendelssohn dug out some of Bach's music and performed it after that the whole world recognized what a genius had been and Faulk may even be recognized beyond this world in nineteen seventy seven scientists sent the unmanned voyager spacecraft off to explore the galaxy. They put examples of the best that planet Earth had to offer on board and one of those examples was a recording of Johann Sebastian box. Brandenburg Concerto number.

"Plan it out well did not maybe you could try to do over today totally forgot that Weimar was at Rosedale I would have because then you can yeah both so anyway that was just on the but I found what I was looking for so that was good well I would say at mall of America was I mean it was busy ash but I mean it was it was quite civilized I love doing a mall in December on like Monday or Tuesday night hello or I mean I really I felt good about my decision last night and I did get some stuff done everything is on sale everywhere I know don't you feel like you shouldn't buy anything that isn't on sale I I kind of feel that way right now now this well in your own advice I know well couples shopping headlines not necessarily related to holiday we have a lot more holiday to talk about gift ideas pop up markets cocaine sweaters and the lake but couple quick headlines made well which we know is the hi tech on fire part of the J. crew company which take Carrero but need well is on fire and they are the latest national retailer to decide to open a store in the north loop what do you think about that what do you think about national retailers do you think being in the north loop do you think that is going to spoil the flavor of north loop I mean it's going to add to it is a very valid question that you raise yeah I yeah I'm curious how people feel about this our our number is six five one six four one one seven one if you have a thought I feel like it's inevitable it is the way it is what happens all right get popular you you then you need some of those big tankers to drive in the case of the north loop it's whole foods it's you know and then you get the Warby Parker and you get brands that sort of I think the brands that are interested in the north loop wants that kind of like we're a little cooler than the mall yeah five you know I mean but no both decided to go there or not also did you hear this week that this the founder of the nobles left well yes I that was only a matter of time I mean they were bought by Walmart and so he was leading yeah it'll for Walmart and he decided to leave and it was also interesting it'll be interesting to see what happens with that brand because one of the things that what that was said was that tension there was tension around how lavishly but no both bent on design on both side and all that compared to the Walmart not all kind of interesting but I I mean I think once you get the you know the whole foods and you get the fancy condos and the rent start to go up and you get a lululemon you know of course it's only a matter of time I mean the the concern is will end up pricing locals out of that market which is kind of what happened back in the day at lake in Hennepin and look at that mass or one that is a total unknown I mean there yeah I mean the thing that I think is kind of a shame is as a person who lives in a suburb and is obviously close to south Dale and all of the stores like made well I'm part of the reason I go to the north loop is because of the stores that are there that I can't find anywhere else and it's a fun vibe if it starts to be another lululemon and made well I don't need to go down there and try to find parking and all right but I mean first of all I think those are some of the right and that is that I mean that's that's part of it and I think in this market just with the number of people you definitely need it to be a destination I mean that's what nickel mall is missing nobody is going out of their way to go downtown for shopping or to go to come all because one would you do once you got there looked at Dayton's Christmas when yeah for about two seconds I seen yeah well I mean I've I've I've seen him from far and haven't gone out on the street yeah yeah yeah I was very nice it's a very nice effort but that's not exactly gonna save you cut model well I I yeah I agree I mean I think they're obviously they are catering to a market of residents in the north loop of workers in the north loop of people who aren't going to the mall they're not just thinking about it as an alternative but I agree with you you do need to have that I mean Martin Patrick three obviously is a big desi action to nolo park boutique you know you've got that the jewelery filigree you know even do you still have a lot but I think that is ask openly sent I mean that is pretty is sensual that those guys don't get plowed over and you know in any passive fire has a big store there're which is a lot of fun to go to so I don't know I mean I hope it's I hope it's good I think north loop needs more I think one of the problems in this market is that we tend to even in our like urban areas not to be dense enough so it's like you go and then you're kind of like okay what else right now or is it still like a whole block to get to the next thing because there's just not enough stuff so if this helps there be more stuff clearly it's a brand that you know a lot of people who live in the north loop are the people who are shopping made well so it's supposed to be opening in spring yeah of the going to be awhile but gonna be right near lululemon in that same building you know there's that yeah it's a whole right right right yeah right yes right next door to them okay so that'll be nice little stretch any like fairgrounds do you know I still haven't been in there I thought you my house has no you haven't had a swinging Cup of coffee no and I would like to but he is taking me I'm waiting for your Instagram post if you want to swing well if I ever get there okay yes we know that and then another

they were told that there was going to be retail that would be coming at all in that we're Lynn Hough photo was there would be store but nothing ever happened rain finally gave up well that's where

economics or indeed the political assassinations which really did for Weimar democracy not according to Christian ten dollars from the think tank the centre for European reform more devastating he argues with the attacks on democratic institutions two in particular he says provide a warning for today the attacks on the freedom of the press and the justice system at two which are very important in the my my times and which we can see already now and parts of Europe for example the justice reforms in Poland where judges can be more easily replaced by the government another example is journalists being afraid to speak truth to power the slogans you know this is a lying pressed Anil telling us the truth or undermine the credibility of the press I think we're seeing this today I think this is very very warring someone gonna say this is ludicrous to stop making comparisons with volume that was a time of extreme economic hardship in the wake of the first World War there's nothing like that going on at the moment I'm not saying we are in Lima I'm saying via must destruction studded with undermining crucial institutions of democracy and I think if we see first signs that we should fight early because if you fight it late it might be too late Kristin Odin dial ending that reports from pole moss in Berlin Julia a didactic museum exhibition if ever there was one do you like you'll museums along those lines I am I do I like to be challenged by museums also visit I think museums come be subject to you son mis use depending on the country and the contacts I was in Winnipeg in March went to the museum of human rights which I thought was absolutely extraordinary he had it and see him in Canada yes in Manitoba I have to admit I wasn't fully aware of the whole details of Canada's any treatments of Chinese immigrants the treatments of the labor sector the treatments of the indigenous communities and it really walls and a really excellent excellent exhibition and it really taught me a lot that I then went away and read about twenty been visited to the museum of torture in Budapest it's the museum of terra and be done last and it's a it's very controversial museum mainly be calls it's it's a rather sweeping overview of recent Hungarian history but there is seems to be an over fakers by critics on the communist period in hungry rather than the period of Nazism and those who are critical of the presence of the house of terra I'm argue that the emphasis on communism has really being used as a kind of a political and electoral leveraging points are bisexual bond and with a paying off the side house of Terry during an election process so it's really seen as a way of pushing back against socialism communism Matthew museums can redraw history Conde well that's right and they can also be a reminder of of progress looking at it from above more optimistic perspective one of my favorite museums is the best for the museum of the mind in in South way in in in in southeast London so we've all heard of Bedlam the medieval lunatic asylum that was used to treat certain mental health problems back in the day it's still going it's changed his name what will it sent sent me the kind of descendants of that institution and I'm now going to oversee the for a much more humane fashion and this museum sits on the campus of a psychiatric hospital I think it shows what we used to do we should mind the coals huge padded cells electroshock therapy I mean it's a real chamber of horrors look presented in a very subtle and and tasteful way from might say I'm we didn't do that so much these days and we have got a much more enlightened view of mental health and and so I think that's one of those museums that **** reminds us that we we cannot she make progress I and Julie this warning that the exhibition in Berlin seems to have a dog times ahead just as as they as a last throw of the of the liberal dice it's a popular thing to think it's always been a popular theme that we the the humanity was about to descend into chaos well it's certainly been a popular thing for all too soon those exploring the an adult Mrs of society in our minds but I think the the real value of this this like a link the the real value of this display in Berlin at the moment I think he's just giving people something of a grounding in what has been lost historically what the challenges are to the future as much as the the cure rates may say that he's not suggesting what a contempt situation of the Weimar he clearly is and that's clearly the intention of the exhibition how do you take that kind of explicit warning Massey from a museum curator what I I I I guess he's realizing that he has a responsibility and I'm looking back at these periods of history where you could see that maybe it could have gone either way I'm actually the way history flowed was down to the decisions that individuals were making on a daily basis what they were doing or not doing I may be just what they were eating and not see I mean well yeah maybe it was purely economic and it had nothing to do with that you know the gay clubs of nineteen twenties Berlin it just had to do with whether people could afford to live on that may be it may be I guess it depends whether you see the the unfolding of the human project is inevitable or whether we have some agency in now

This Economic Theory Could Be Used To Pay For The Green New Deal

"This message comes from N._P._R.. Sponsor get around with get around your idol car can actually earn you money. Just share it on the APP and Rinse it out when you're not using it visit get around dot com slash share now to start sharing get around. It's go time New York. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez wants a green new deal clean energy guaranteed jobs when she announced this everyone asked how are you gonNa pay for it. Here's what she told morning edition earlier this year I the first thing that we need to do is kind of break. The mistaken idea that taxes pay for one hundred percent of government expenditure. She says ambitious government programs can be financed through deficit spending and in saying that she has spotlighted in an obscure brand of economics known as Modern Monetary Theory N._p._R.'s Scott horsely has a beginner's guide modern monetary theory's been around for years but it's only recently stepped out of the shadows economist Stephanie Kelsen Stony Brook. Doc University says that's partly thanks to Cossio Cortes. The Social Media Darling embraced the theory while making an unapologetic case for costly new government programs there was something of an oprah effect wrench she did that. People immediately probably started readied googling modern monetary theory to find out what she was referring to run that Google search and you'll quickly find Kelton herself. The Economist who advised Bernie Sanders Twenty sixteen campaign is one of the best known evangelist for 'EM MT Kelton says paying for big government programs is the easy part. If Congress has the will she argues the Federal Reserve can effectively print the money if Congress authorizes a few billion dollars of additional spending or a few hundred billion dollars then the feds job is to make sure that those checks don't bounce a central element of empty is that governments that control their own currency like the United States don't have to worry about spending more than they collect in taxes. This they can always create more money but Kelton says that's not a blank check for unlimited government spending too often people get a whiff of mt they don't read the literature and they somehow arrive at the takeaway that M._t._a.. is about printing prosperity and of course when people hear printing money they go straight to Zimbabwe Weimar Germany those are notorious cases of runaway price hikes but Kelton says inflation is only Nia danger when demand outstripped the real capacity of the economy the people machines and raw materials last week under questioning from Cossio Cortez Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell acknowledged the U._S.. Job Market has shown more capacity. Did you grow without triggering inflation. He and his colleagues had expected still vows no fan of MT as he told the Senate hearing back in February the idea that deficits don't matter for countries that can borrow in their own currency. I think is just wrong. We're. We're going to have to either spend less or raise more revenue taxes story and Bruce Bartlett also blast. 'EM MT as little more than a fig leaf giving license for big spending in the same way art laugher gave Republicans covered a cut taxes with the dubious claim. They'd pay for themselves. M. T. is sort of laugh recur for the Left. Some of them tease biggest supporters however are not liberal politicians but bond traders but firms like Pimco and Goldman Sachs James Montier. WHO's with the investment firm G._M._O.? Says he turned him Mt. After more conventional economics. Let him astray in the nineteen nineties. Monty and many others were convinced. Japan's rising government debt would drive up borrowing costs. It didn't across both Mike Lines or anyone who stupid enough to follow me money. It was one of the worst trait positions I've ever suggested in my entire life. Monte says M. T. offers better financial forecast and helped him understand why interest rates in the U._S. asks have stayed low. Despite growing government deficits persistently low interest rates have also prompted some mainstream economists like Larry Summers and Jason Ferment to rethink their attitudes and be less concerned about federal deficits but they haven't.

Also in one thousand nine hundred nineteen. The new democracy and the new art and design closely linked both seeking to create a better society after the devastation of the first World War, Germany is celebrating both these centenarians throughout two thousand nineteen but it's noticeable that with a multitude of festivals exhibitions and new museums. It's the design school that's getting the lion's share of the attention. Why is this? I wonder aloud to Bettina golden Berliner powerhouse expert as we walk the streets of the capital. It's because the bath house is entirely positive. She says twentieth century politics is still a touchy subject here. But the bow house is a German institution that has nothing bad about it and its international ironically in large part, thanks to the Nazis. They hated this open experimental multi-ethnic institution labeling it Bolshevik can degenerate. They ran its teachers and students out of Germany spreading them across the world. Where the influence can still be seen cities homes, and I care stores the bias Tinari events, which golden help to plan. We're originally intended a simple celebrations, but two thousand nine hundred approach she says the anniversary took on an unexpected significance a significance that ties it more closely to the years other anniversary. Goldman stops on the street corner and points at a small modern apartment block with clear about house characteristics. This was built last year. She says, I know ought in recognition of the bar houses, continuing architectural influence, the golden who is making another point. She indicates a little further up the road, and there is the library of one of today's Neo Nazi groups in the last two years. Golden the continues she is closer to the bow house than ever at not in a way, she welcomes I never thought she says seriously that I would be touched myself by what I thought was history by the rise of the right in Germany. She now sees this year's on averse Serie is a crucial opportunity for us all to take heed of history. I fear for democracy. She says bluntly, we need to remember, the liberalism and tolerance of the bowel house in the Weimar Republic and just how fast they were lost. The democratic government and the bow house survived only fourteen years before both fell prey in one thousand nine hundred eighty three to the rising power of the Nazis, golden values the house legacy in architecture and design, but she says more important today of their ideas back in Weimar new museum as the dust of construction settles on my shoulders bow house to story. An anchor bloom agrees the eleven thousand items to be displayed here, we showed that I've -versity of the bowel house. It was never one style. She says nor really a single movement more forum an approach she hopes. This museum to will be a place for discussion. Experimentation and innovation. We want to bring bow house ideas forward. She says especially to seek answers to what Gropius called the most burning question of the day. How do we live well together undoubtedly as hockey relevant in this centenary year? Juliette rick's. Recent studies suggest that one of the easiest ways that we can reduce the strain on the planet is to eat less meat the United Nations estimates that worldwide livestock accounts for around fourteen point five percent of human induced greenhouse gas emissions cutting down forests to create more grazing land for the cattle to feed on meat consumption. Also destroys the plants which helped keep emissions down by Szott having carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen a few years ago, the UN recommended thinking of insects as an alternative source of protein. The idea hasn't really taken off in the west, but for two billion people in the world insects, a no consolation prize. They are a tasty often crispy treats and as patients at Johari was reminded catching them can require ingenuity and commitment. The first thing I do that morning is by a pair. Of sunglasses. I'll explain why later we drive south from Uganda's capital Kampala towards massacre at town famous for grasshoppers all along the highway. You can see the same setup clamps of old oil drums arranged in rows sheet metal panels balanced on top of each one. I'll complicated arrangement of wooden poles erected around them. These rigs are Mane's to trap the insects. I am the coordinator of all the grasshopper trap in the country says the man who receives us in massacre. He has an air of importance about him speaking loudly to us more group as we patch on the benches in his tiny office prepare for a long night. He won't we set out at dusk. To the edge of town. Young men set up complex wearing crisscrossing the wooden poles then hung up blindingly bright lights. So dazzling that you can't look at them directly. This is when the sunglasses come in handy. Hundreds of rusty oil barrels are suddenly bathed in the white glare. Now, imagine the sound of heavy raindrops falling when attain roof attracted by the light.

Pulp into the drums. Less than an hour into the operation. The sound seems more like a steady downpour on every corner. People seem willing to sacrifice their sleep for bug hunting.

I think to myself that is how I caught grasshoppers with my friends and.

"Get the old problem of too many dollars chasing too few goods also known as inflation if the money supply grows too slowly to keep up with productive capacity. You get the opposite problem deflation, a far more serious threat as we've seen since the crash of weight over and I want to make note about deflation here deflation is not a necessary in and of itself a bad thing. So for example, we talked about on this show when gas prices fall. Hey, is there anything inherently bad about you being able to get the same quality good for a cheaper price than you could get it yesterday? The answer is no the real problem comes when you see systemic and rapid deflation across multiple sectors in the same way. That you see inflation happen broadly across multiple sectors in that case, you see bankruptcies and people can no longer sell their goods or their products for a, you know, for a price for what they purchase the the initial the initial what do you call it, the the initial resources for so for give you an example, when you have hyper inflation, one of the things that people would do say, the Weimar Republic was they would walk in and they would wanna pay for their meal before they ate it because they would increase the prices at certain times during the day. And oftentimes the prices would increase by the time they got done eating their meal. This becomes a very serious problem. You think about that? In terms of deflation? So let's say that a company thinks that they can sell their widget for one hundred dollars, and they know buying the goods that they need to and the production cost to create the goods cost them eighty dollars..
