"So, we saluted the life of Jimmy Buffett yesterday, properly so, but boy did we miss a birthday yesterday. Freddie Mercury would have been 77, passed away back in 91, so I had to pick a Queen song, had to pick a Queen record. How about You're My Best Friend for the Mike and Mark segments? Not bad. There you go, buddy. We can sing We Are the Champions because we're the champion of all things mysterious. And topics that need to be explored. We go where few dare go. You shut me down yesterday when I told you about the Delta Airlines flight that was forced to land. But then, of course, you saw it all over Twitter and X and everything, right? Well, I know because everybody's 12 years old. Somebody had a, I don't even want to say it again, somebody had a horrible digestive event on a plane and they had to sandblast the plane for six hours. They had to replace the carpet. I mean, they had to replace the carpet on the plane. That's a true story. Can you imagine being on that plane and the poor pilot, and there's an audio recording of the pilot saying, five, seven, one, Delta heavy. We have a biohazard problem on the plane. The biohazard. Ladies and gentlemen, you may want to look over the left side of the aircraft because that's where we're going to be issuing the parachute so that you can get the hell off this thing before we all die. I'd never fly again. That'd be it. That'd be it. And speaking of flying, didn't you do it yet? Are you in New York yet? Today? No, after the show today, I'm headed to New York where it's going to be 110 degrees. You know, Texas heat is one thing. New York City heat is ghastly because there's no breeze. You're walking up and down. So we're going to see the Eagles in concert tomorrow night. I'm going to see a couple of shows. We've got some meetings. I'm going to go to Philly for a big event. Oh, cool. With Chris Stiegel. Is that our guy? Chris Stiegel and Dennis Prager and Pastor Robert Jeffers from your neck of the woods. That's right. That's so cool. I have a question for you. It's called, for a moment, welcome to Mike's Entertainment Options or Mike's Travel Habits. As we have noted, you are fresh back from the UK. I trust you had a magnificent time. So Mike's on the ground in England for 24 hours, sends me a picture off of his balcony. Was that a CG? Was that a green screen? Because from your balcony, it's like, oh, there's the London Eye, oh, there's Westminster Abbey. Where were you? Well, there's a story behind that. I'm a little reluctant to tell the story. Joey and Peg are my dear friends. Joey's a little more frugal than I am. And he found a hotel. And I'll go ahead and say it. It was a nice Marriott right on the River Thames, right outside that giant monstrosity eye thing. That Ferris wheel. It's a massive Ferris wheel. It's gross. I mean, I think about the River Thames and I think of Mary Poppins floating gently. Big Ben and all these beautiful, and then there's this monstrosity, and Brits don't like it either. Everybody kind of, it's a cool tourist thing and you go up and it's one of those giant Ferris wheels. Anyway, the hotel, this Marriott is right at the Ferris wheel. So not only is the infernal thing beeping every time it moves, and so you hear the beeping in your room, but like you saw, you're right there. I mean, the view is crazy, but not only that, but the deal breaker for me, the AC wasn't so good. Is England like Laguna Beach, California, where we stayed at a beautiful place and it happened to be 82 and they didn't have any AC? I thought I was going to die. Well, you know, again, the UK, they're not really like AC -oriented like we are. They have it, but I said, that's it, I'm out, King Tut needs some AC, I got to have air conditioning. And it wasn't even hot over there, but at night, I don't know, I mean, God forbid if the day ever comes where they yank the rug out from under me and I'm, you know, singing show tunes at a cheeseburger joint on the weekends and I can't afford an air conditioner because I got to have an air conditioner. Anyway, I knew of a place, a much nicer hotel, so we actually checked out. That was a one -day gig, but it was spectacular visuals. And speaking of show tunes, that leads me to my actual really quick question because there is stuff going on in the world. So you sent me, as you always do and I love it so much, it's like, hey, look where I am, hey, look where I am. And on at least a couple of occasions, you were in the front row, shocker, of this magnificent show. I guess it's called Tina or somebody is Tina Turner and wow, was she good. Wow, was she good. It's actually a Broadway show that also went to the West End and there was, I saw a woman named Adrian Warren who played the show, played the part, but yeah, it's a musical about the life of Tina Turner. And on another night you went and saw Les Mis. The best production of Les Mis I've ever seen in the history of going to the theater. I bet it was great. But here's my question and here's where you and I are a smidge different. Okay. You're in London and you go to Broadway for lunch like every day. So there's a whole country outside this theater as you sit in a seat and see something that is admittedly fantastic, but that you could see at some other time a hundred yards from where you're staying. But the West End is London's version of Broadway and they do theater a little bit differently. First of all, I mean, the ticket prices are even more affordable. You know, you sit in the stalls over there. They don't call them seats.
Uk has Big Lunch and Windsor concert following coronation Saturday
"A weekend long celebration of the coronation of King Charles the third continues with luncheons held throughout the UK and a concert at Windsor Castle. The festivities continue to support the newly crowned monarch, even as many have questioned the relevance of The Crown, and the cost of such a spectacle at a time when living costs are so high. The gilded spectacle of the king being crowned in an ancient religious ceremony at Westminster Abbey the day before takes a more down to earth turn, with picnics and street parties being planned across the UK. Events conclude with a concert featuring Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and the boy band that take that in the grounds of Windsor Castle. Charles De Ledesma, London

It didn't help that he alienated himself from his father and brother by airing grievances and telling palace secrets in his explosive bestselling memoir spare, Buckingham Palace had said Harry wouldn't participate in at the ceremony.

Royal Drama: King’s fractious family on stage at coronation
"As King Charles the third joins as many as 2800 guests for his coronation on May 6th at Westminster Abbey, his complicated family will once again take center stage. There's a second wife and embarrassing brother and an angry son and daughter in law all with allies who aren't shy about whispering family secrets in the ears of friendly reporters. How King Charles manages his family drama over the coming weeks and years is crucial to the king's efforts to preserve and protect the 1000 year old hereditary monarchy, editor of majesty magazine, Joe little, says Charles ongoing family drama was never going to just disappear. I think it was a nervous that when Charles became king, the loss of the personal stuff would come back to haunt him. Royal historian Robert Lacey says the standards were set too high. The British monarchy is supposed to be representative. And that used to be thought to mean it's got to be ideal. It's got to behave in an absolutely immaculate fashion. Well, that wasn't realistic and proved not to be realistic. In fact, Lacey believes Charles fractious family may be easier for the British public to identify with. But I think most people in Britain find an imperfect and honest family, easier to live with. Karen Chammas, London

Barefoot tours of Westminster Abbey offered after coronation
"Visitors to London's Westminster Abbey will be allowed to stand for the first time on the exact spot where King Charles the third will be crowned, though they'll need to make sure they don't have holes in their socks for the shooter's tour meant to protect the Abbey's medieval mosaic floor. Abby officials say the section of the church's floor, known as the cosmati pavement, where the coronation chair has been placed for some 700 years, will be on display during Charles's crowning ceremony, Vanessa Simeone, head conservator at Westminster Abbey, says it will be a unique visitor experience. It's such a rare opportunity. Nobody apart from the clergy go up to this space. So for visitors to come here and be able to walk on the pavement and get up close and look at the designs and all the different materials that make up this incredible piece of art, it's going to be just once in a lifetime experience. The intricate and mosaic of marble stone glass and metal located in front of the Abbey's high altar was commissioned by Henry the third in the 1200s, and made by Italian craftsmen, it's said to be the best surviving example outside Italy of cosmati after the Italian family which created it.

It's all hands on deck as the United Nations make that the United Kingdom prepares for the coronation of King Charles the third and it turns out the coronation throne needs some TLC before the big day. Conservator Christa Leslie has been tasked with the medieval makeover. So a lot of my work at the moment is sticking those layers of gilding back down and making sure it's completely sound before the coronation. The 6 and a half foot throne has been a centerpiece for English coronations for centuries. After being built in 1309.

"An idea, which is if you look at nature carefully and really pay attention and you're lucky, you can catch a glimpse of something deeply hidden. She's a beautiful phrase. Something deeply hidden, which is the deep structure of reality. It's what our reality is. So black holes, they're kind of a metaphor in a way. I talk about them as Rosetta stones in the sky. They're the things that by studying them. And when you say, why, why would we study these things? Well, in studying these things, we're beginning to get a deep, a deep picture of what our reality actually is. And that's a remarkable idea. But it's a beautiful idea that runs through all of science. How do you define a black hole? Well, it's in Einstein's theory, which again is a remarkable thing. It's probably in 1915 over a hundred years old. But it's just a region of space from which even light can't escape. And by understanding what they are and knowing more about them, what do we then learn? Well, states so Stephen Hawking back in the 70s published a paper. The initial one was called black hole explosions. It's just great title for a paper. And he calculated, he found out that black holes in his language. He said black holes ain't so black. They glow in the sky, like coals in the sky. And they radiate. And so over time, they lose energy and mass and ultimately disappear. Of a huge time scales. And that's so important. And I show this picture in the show that if you're going to Westminster Abbey and look on the floor of Westminster Abbey on Stevens memorial stone, then you find his equation for the temperature of a black hole, literally chiseled in stone on the floor of an Abbey. So you might say, why? Why is it so important? This was the key. This was this Rosetta stone idea. In trying to understand what happens. What happens? What happens to this stuff that fell in? When you thought these things existed forever, which is pre Hawking. Then you think, well, it's okay. I guess lots of inside. It can never get out. We don't care. But the thing evaporates away, one day it will be gone. So then suddenly you have to be faced with this question, what happened to everything then? If I threw a book into a black hole, is it somehow possible in the far future of your collect all this so called Hawking radiation? That comes off. Is it possible to reconstruct the information in the book? And that's been a question simple question that's driven this tremendous amount of research for 50 years. And it was pretty much solved in 2019, actually, in 2020. Pretty much, there's still a huge number of questions. But roughly, well, the statement is everything comes out again. All the information comes out. So everything that fell in in principle in the far future you could reconstruct the information of everything that fell in. This is an astonishing idea, because the last thing I'll say is that before that, before the Hawking papers and before this modern understanding, inside a black hole, just according to Einstein, sits the end of time. Which is an astonishing thing to say, because we can see them. We have a photograph to one of these things in the center of a galaxy too, actually. And you're looking when you look at that photograph, you're looking at the end of time in space. So then you think, well, if things go to the end of time, how does everything get out? Again. And that's the content of this tremendous work in theoretical physics. This works to be in black holes, which is one of those things that a certain kind of person says is useless, right? He said, why? Who cares? It turns out that the techniques that have been developed and the understanding that's being gained from looking at these things. Has got a very strong crossover with building quantum computers. Which quantum computers are in laboratories now. They have a tremendous potential to revolutionize our civilization. The incredibly powerful computing devices. Yes, and also that sometimes the defense given, isn't it about what's going into man going back to the moon or woman going back to the moon. The other things are discovered in the pursuit of those missions. Yeah, I mean, it's always a cliche, but it's true a friend of mine, an astronomer always says, when people criticize these spacecraft and they say, you know, the way, let's say the James Webb Space Telescope is what $6 billion or so. But it's appropriate to point out that nobody puts $6 billion in a suitcase and launched it on The Rock kits. Around the $6 million didn't go into space. It was spent on earth. And what is often the case? So putting aside the glory and wonder of the discoveries that are made, you are paying people to do high-tech jobs and do research and build machines that operate at the edge of the possible. And history tells us that that tends to be extremely useful. Your inventing things and trying to do things that are difficult. And that expertise never stays in one place. It then spreads out across our civilization in ways that you can't really predict or even quantify. Indeed, and you did sound very excited earlier. When you sound excited the whole time about all of this, which is infectious, even if people were trying to keep up, including myself. But when you talked about the golden possibility of there being life out there. And that question of, are we alone? Where are you with that? What do you say to people right now with the latest information? Well, so this, again, I think there's a cosmology. I say this in the show as well, it's one of the most challenging subjects, because at one level it makes us feel very, very small and insignificant. And it's true. You know, physically. I mean, the earth is one planet around one star amongst 400 billion stars in one galaxy amongst 2 trillion galaxies in the part of the universe we can

So it's got a seating capacity of several thousand. The people that are attending the funeral obviously, it's an extremely curated guest list. Those people have been bused there from I don't exactly know where. But logistics of it have very complicated, so I guess with all those buses coming in that some people are they already.

I haven't heard about it. I haven't heard a lot of people are having I don't want to sound self involved. But it is the worst time for New Zealand to have a funeral because it starts at the time when most people are filming in bed, so look, I don't know whether people are keeping children up, I was curious about that. I know that without children, there has been no discussion or no interest in watching it. I don't think they know it's on. But I'll lift the house tonight. That was slightly grisly.

"More and what's going on around the world. Anna, good morning, and thank you. Features cut the UK's outlook to negative a week after S&P did the same thing citing Liz truss's large and unfunded fiscal package. The new government stimulus plans have negatively impact financial markets, confidence and the credibility of the policy framework, according to the ratings agency, separately, millions more Britons will be pulled into a higher tax income brackets over the next three years, costing twice as much as the government's personal tax cuts that's according to the institute of fiscal studies. Now OPEC plus members have agreed to cut their total output by 2 million barrels a day starting in November to keep prices high, outdated baselines mean actual supply will fall by half of that amount. It is still the biggest cut since 2020 and adds another risk to the global economy. The U.S. has slammed the decision and says it will release another 10 million barrels from strategic reserves next month, and King Charles is expected to be crowned on June 3rd next year in a ceremony at Westminster Abbey.

Well, a string of political and economic crises are threatening the City of London's position as Europe's largest equity market, recent market turbulence that we can pound and Brexit trade frictions of all hit the UK's market size was now in touching distance with its chief rival Paris. Here to discuss, it's been very Charlie wells Charlie good morning to you how close then is this race and how bad is it really for the UK? Stephen, I know your French is really good, but I'm just gonna say say pa Bon. So looking at those league tables, I would try to answer all these questions in French, but I can't. So UK market cap is 2.6 trillion in the latest figures of French market cap 2.5 trillion, so uncomfortably close, only once before has that value differential between the UK and the French equity markets been narrower and that was in January when BHP exited London. So as you say, why is this happening? That differential really has been eroding since Brexit, but of course we have seen so much market chaos since the Etruscan government's many budget that that really has damaged economic confidence and of course sent the pound to a record low. Charlie, we were reading with interest, a report by our colleague about UK assets today, which quoted Liberum capital strategist. Joachim Clement, saying that investors consider the UK on investable, he then goes on to point out which assets look though very cheap in the UK. How is that sentiment, though, playing out around the London equity market? Right, so those are some harsh words and maybe masked some potential opportunities. But you know, the figures at least right now are pretty striking, right? So, you know, in the first month of the trust government, we've seen at least 300 billion pounds wiped from the combined value of the nation's stock and bond markets. Yesterday, Liz trust was in Birmingham trying to kind of bring back some confidence, of course, the pound did decline after that speech, but then of course did recover a little bit over the rest of the day. And I think, you know, as far as sentiment, we still have a lot of concerns over the guilt markets, right? So once the Bank of England kind of exits that market at the end of next week, there's concern of course as well that there could be a cliff edge there. So this is all really kind of piling up into this incredibly negative sentiment towards UK markets. To what would the UK need to do then to maintain or perish the thought even expand its crown as the largest equity market in Europe? So there are markets, of course, and then there's marketing. And I think something that the UK could use there. Yes, something that the UK could use is probably a refresh of the marketing, right? And I think one way that would be kind of exciting to do this potentially would be to try to juice up those IPO listings, right? The UK has great infrastructure. So at great universities, it's got a really great tax actor, so that could be a potential way to turn things around, but of course, as Anna mentioned, you know, the UK is not an emerging market. There are opportunities here. And what we're hearing from some investment analysts is that with markets down, some investors actually seeing opportunities to actually build positions. And benefit if and when the market recovers. Charlie, thank you very much for that Charlie wells of Bloomberg news with the latest on the UK is status Cesar, a big global financial center, of course. And I was drawn to this story around the client selling Liberum capital that the UK is on investable, but then going on to say Steven, that even if profits, this is the calculations at Liberum, even if profits in the UK dropped by a quarter, so that's pricing in something, you know, relatively bad, a relatively bad outcome over the winter. Then they still think that the valuations would be, well, they would be below average for the last 5 years suggesting that things would still look cheap to them. But that's just the view of liberal. Interesting, we'll be hearing plenty more on that coming up next is we're going to be hearing from our equities reporter Joe Easton who's going to talk us through that story and these calls from some of those investors speaking to their own capital saying that the UK is uninvestable now. Of course we are still digesting the end two of the Tory party conference Les trusts laying out her vision for in her words growth growth and growth in that speech as she tried to double down on her economic policies of trying to create growth through things like investment zones and also cutting taxes on for income tax in particular, of course, one that we're being discussing as well. So we will bring you all of those stories coming up next and also keep an eye to the markets where the FTSE 100 is up by a tenth of 1%

If you're just joining us, this is Bloomberg radio's special coverage of the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II in Westminster Abbey in London.

This is Bloomberg Caroline. And now the queen's funeral today is a major diplomatic event with dozens of heads of state and government and hundreds of foreign dignitaries attending. The foreign office has been coordinating the delicate arrangements which have been described as like a hundred state visits in one go. We've been discussing this with John kampfner, who's head of the UK and the world initiative at chatham House. It's a question of who gets to drive or be driven and who gets to have to clamber onto the bus. It is who sits where in which row in Westminster Abbey and a lot of that is going to be around etiquette rather than diplomacy heads of state will come at before deputy heads of state who will come before heads of government who will come before ambassadors and it was everlast. But the really interesting question is who is going to be talking to whom? And that's partly an issue for the UK and UK foreign policy and its trust being brand new and all of that. But it's also a lot of discrete conversations among heads of state and heads of government among themselves. That's very interesting to hear that this is to do with opinions on Russia and the war because awful as that is that is a very recent event in foreign affairs, isn't it? And the queen's reign has been has been very long, but it's really a sort of current as that is it. Yes, I mean, it's broader than that. Those countries just happen to be the countries that Britain has the worst relationships with anyway. And I would say most Western countries would probably if they had a list of 5 or 6 countries they wouldn't like to invite to things. It would be them. But when you think back at the queen's reign herself and her diplomacy, her non speaking diplomacy, so to speak, over all that time, goodness, she has had enough ogres in binding and palace and in Windsor over the time Nikolai ceausescu, the Romanian leader who was executed on Christmas Day in 1989 right after the coup, one of the worst Warsaw Pact leaders, she's had Putin, she's had Jinping himself. She's had all kinds of things. She had Donald Trump and you could tell she didn't think much of him. All the way through, she's had people that, for a lot of British public opinion, we would regard as unsavory, but those were the days when hugging people close, even if you didn't like them, was the way to go. Now it is very much a more binary set of relationships who is friend and who is foe. This is, of course, a funeral. It's a solemn event, but are there is there a diplomatic opportunity without sounding mercenary about is the diplomatic opportunity here for Britain to cement some of those friendships and perhaps tackle some issues that could be to a national advantage? Short term, yes, I mean the eyes of the world will be on London and you can say they have been on London for the last ten days already. That I don't think we should overplay. I mean, for Liz truss, she was only in office for two days before the queen died, and she is incredibly new. And she's not been able to do normal politics in the course of this morning period for the queen that will start in earnest again Tuesday, Wednesday next week for her. It's really, really important. We thought that her first real multilateral outing was going to be in New York for the United Nations. Annual meeting, but no, she's got a chance to talk to a lot of people. She and they will all have to be incredibly discreet about the way they do that. But I would also caution a little bit these stock of the queen was, as we have all seen, incredibly high. That obviously has a certain benefit for the UK. But the stock of Britain and the stock of the British government over the last several years, particularly in Europe, but further revealed as well, has been really quite poor in so many places, Boris Johnson being disparaged being seen as unreliable as not following the rule of law as being a bit of a clown. All of that is going to take a lot of reversing, Liz truss has a different personality, but very much a sort of Britain first, quite hard right wing ideological attitude. It'll be fascinating to see how she applies all of that in her own way now as the incumbent in number ten. That was John kathner head of the UK and the world initiative

Bloomberg radio, the Bloomberg business app and Bloomberg radio dot com. You do realize the mark that this is having on a younger generation. Bloomberg, the world is listening. World leaders have gotten in London for the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II, the service at Westminster Abbey is expected to bring the city to a standstill and what will be the biggest one day policing operational in its history. Let's head out to Bloomberg's and Edward Moore. So Anna, what does the chronology look like over the coming hours? Good to see you. So you were just showing pictures there coming live from London of the lying in state of Queen Elizabeth II, and that continues for another half hour or so. Some of the people you're seeing filing past the coffin there have been waiting ten, 12, 14 hours for the chance to pay their respects to the late monarch. So the lying in state comes to an end in around half an hour's time. And then we see continuation of the pomp and ceremony that we've experienced over the last few days, we will see a procession leading from that 900 year old Westminster hall to Westminster Abbey just over the road. That the coffin during that procession will be followed by members of the royal family and we will see a service then take place at Westminster Abbey followed by another service at Windsor 25 miles or so to the west of London later on this afternoon. So shops are shot markets are closed that their attention of the nation falls on what is happening in central London and then over in Windsor later on man. I mean, as an outsider, I will say that the scale of the rituals involved have been eye opening to say the least that this is a state event who is expected to attend, who is on the guest list. Yeah, the outpouring of commitments if you like to the monarchy has been something to behold. I was going to say grief, but not everybody has been grief stricken some have been in the mood to celebrate her life as you've witnessed conversations with those in the queue there. Those in the line waiting to see that lying in state. In terms of the leaders who've been invited, I mean, pretty much anyone that the UK has diplomatic relations with. It was going to be invited. So we're not seeing, of course, Russia, Myanmar, Belarus, North Korea on the list. But aside from that, most countries were invited even if they don't end up sending a very high level delegation. And that certainly seems to be the case with China. There was some controversy over that Chinese invitation. And there has also been controversy over Saudi Arabia and whether they would attend an are the media currently reporting that that's not the case anymore that at least a Mohammed bin Salman won't attend according to media reports. So there has been that controversy over the guest list, but otherwise we've seen President Biden, of course, land in London, and he's paid tribute to the queen talking about how she was exactly as you'd expect to find her in real life as she was in reputation, if you like, and also suggesting that she reminded him of his mother, which was quite touching. We also see the emperor of Japan is here presidents from all over Europe, royal families represented from all over Europe, of course, as well. And so as you suggested, a real security as security task to behold really for the UK. And thank you very much for that and Edwards is going to be, of course, reporting throughout the day live from London. I want to get back to the markets very quickly.

I'm Brian shook. You're listening to masters in business with Barry riddles on Bloomberg radio. I'm Barry holt's you're listening to masters in business on Bloomberg radio, my extra special guest today is Albert Wegener. He is the managing partner at Union Square ventures. They have invested in such companies as coinbase, DuoLingo, Etsy, and Twitter. So let's talk about the current state of the world for venture capitalists. We've seen valuations come way down for public companies. They're pretty reasonably priced these days about 16 times for the S&P 500. That's historically more or less average. Where do you see the state of the world in early stage valuations? How are they holding up? A year ago, late stage valuations had gone just bonkers, tell us a little bit about what's going on today. The correction always basically is a trickle down type of correction. It happens very rapidly in the public markets, then you still get some high price private rounds that either were in the works or they have a lot of structure in the latest stage markets. There's a headline number, but then nobody talks about all the Warren coverage that's behind the scenes. And then the early stage valuations tend to lag behind all of that. But we're seeing early stage valuations come down and as a firm we've always been disciplined on valuations. So we just let a lot of things go where we just thought it was. Are they down off the peak or are they cheap and attractive? The down of the peak, whether they're cheap or attractive, I think time will tell. But we are back in a situation where there are seed deals getting done at below $10 million, certainly below $20 million. And seed rounds that have a reasonable size. So for a while we were seeing these ten, 20, $30 million seed rounds. Sounds pricey. Yeah, and that's not happening anymore. But it was kind of interesting. We've also always tried to basically be at the next pieces and evolve our thesis before everybody else gets there. And once everybody else gets there, try and do well for our thesis. So for example, in the climate fund, we've made any number of reasonably priced investments. It's very reasonably priced. So I always assumed it was tied to the public markets, but sometimes you just don't realize when you have a good couple of years in a row in the public markets, you see that impact in what people are looking for, what sort of deals get done and valuations generally. I always find it relatively surprising how much private early stage valuations are tied to public markets because all the exit, right? But our holding periods are 5, 8, ten years. And so what's the current public? And so there's a couple of different explanations. One obviously is just investor sentiment, right? When investors are bearish because of what they're seeing in the public markets, they take a bearish attitude towards their own investing. We try as soon as we're interested. We tried to have a pretty steady pace as one way of counteracting our own sort of whatever our own emotions may be about the public markets. There is, however, another effect that sometimes is underestimated, which is that the people who give money into venture funds. So these are pension funds and endowments and so forth. They have a certain website from the public markets because when they're feeling flush on the public markets, then their private allocation as a percentage of their overall portfolio. They have a certain target in mind. When the public markets come down a lot, all of a sudden they're over allocated. So they want to pull back. So there is a mechanism by which the current public markets transmit into the private markets. There's a real financial mechanism. There's a psychological mechanism and a real financial mechanism by which some transmission some contagion basically happens from the public markets and department of money. But it doesn't make very much sense. Like if people were sort of more cognizant of both the emotional reaction and this mechanism, they'd be like, well, yeah, but innovation is happening at some pace in some area. There's some innovation that we should be funding that innovation. So I'm just making notes and investors are irrational. So profound insight right here. There you go. You never heard this one before. So to put that into a little context, 2020, 2021, very founder friendly deals. Now it seems like a little more investor friendly. Their assessment or not quite there yet. Well, when it comes to founder friendly versus investor friendly, there's a lot more to a deal than valuation is all the other terms. And while I believe we will see a correction on valuation that's pretty significant, I don't think we're going to go back to where venture capital was 20 or 30 years ago that had all these super draconian terms. Certainly, even at the early stage, even at the early stage they were all these, they were redemption provisions in early stage deals. I don't think that's going to come back. We are not fans of structure in later stage deals like just to give you a good example. When I was still on the board of Twilio, Twilio had the option of doing a totally clean no structure round at call it a ¥1 billion and a highly structured round with we're going to have a full ratchet into an IPO at a 1 billion 5 and some of the other investors at the table really wanted the 1 billion 5 number basis the bigger headline number. And I talked to Jeff and I said, just make any sense. You don't actually know what you deal with until many years later. Just take the deal where you know what the deal is today and you know what the deal is a

This is Bloomberg, Richard. All right, let's get back to our guest. Dennis gartman is chairman of the university of Akron's endowment investment committee. And retirement publisher, of course, of the gartman letter. Now looking at Dennis, the whole fed monetary tightening scenario, people thinking is going to pivot to some time next year, but that's something which J pal and others have really tried to quash. But does this mean that we've got multiyear monetary policy which will be a drastic departure to what we've been witnessing in the last few years. I've said since I've been in the business for about 45 years, the one thing I've learned is once the fed begins to embark upon a new direction, whether they're taking rates higher or taking rate slower, whether they're tightening or easing. They tend to move not for weeks, not for months, but for months and years. So I do think that we are in for several years of tighter monetary policy. They have to the duty of reducing the size of their balance sheet. Again, as I talked about earlier, it's gone from 900 billion to 9 trillion taking 65 to 90 billion away each month is years in the making to get it back to, let's call it $4 trillion. So this is not something that's going to happen very soon. It's something that's going to be in with us for, I think, at least two more years on the tightening side. It's just something that historically has been the president of the fed has said. And given the fact that the doves on the committee, Lyle brainard being one has now become hawkish and even the hawks are hawkish. This is something that's going to be with us for a while. So people think that there's going to be a pivot, I think, or ill advised and looking at the wrong news. Even the doves hawkish, yeah, kind of scary. But the bond market does seem to be sending somewhat more comforting message. If you look at 5 year tips, for instance, down under 2.6%. Now, the bond market could be wrong, but it's kind of risky to call the bond market, right? That's a pretty big market. I've always said that the bond market is the wiser of the two between the between the stock market and the bond market and my vote will tend to be with the bond market. It's one of mathematics and it's one of consequence. So if the bond market wants to say that rates are going to be are going to be easing, I'll go with that, but right now the trend is from the upper left to the lower right as far as price the trend is from the lower left to the upper right as far as yield is concerned and it's been a bear market, a devastating bear market. Those who had their portfolios in the 60 40 stock versus bond portfolio have suffered immensely. And I don't think that that suffering is going to end anytime soon. You gave us a sense of your strategy at the start of the interview to a dentist. What is it looking like now? Are you feeling any former shape of optimism? For the long term, I did a radio interview here in Todd water, Virginia last week, and I said, if you're looking out three to 5 years, you're going to be optimistic. If you're looking at three to 5 months or maybe two years, I think you have to tend to be pessimistic. So it depends on what your time frame is. The major course of the United States is always going to be bullish in the long term. But I think between now and the end of this year and into midterm next year, I think that I think in bear market is still going to continue and I think you have to be very, very conscious of the fact that it is a bear market at this point and prices are going to be lower, not higher. So we did see a significant drop in commodities during the month of June, but it really has turned around since then. And they have started to creep higher admittedly in the last ten days. We've seen another drop

Who Was George Fredrick Handel
"Welcome back to another episode of five minutes in Church history. On this episode, we're talking about a composer George, Frederic Handel and I resist the urge to have upon here and say that we going to get a handle on handle. But let's get a handle on hindle. He was born in sixteen, Eighty five in Hallo- Germany the importance of that year is it was the same year as the birth of Johann Sebastian Bach sixteen eighty five was a great year for the birth of composers apparently, and now Bach to handle and I promise. I'm done with punts. Well handle was originally set to be a lawyer but he loved music and he quickly showed his prowess as an organist and at composing, and so he said off to be a musician. He spent some time traveling around Italy and then he was musician for the elector of Hanover. Now, the importance of the elector of Hanover was that he was the heir to the throne of England and when Queen and died childless the elector of Hanover became King George the. First of England handle moved with him to London and the year was seventeen off and from then on hand spent the rest of his life in Britain, and he's while born in Germany and German descent is known as an English composer under George. The first t founded the Royal Academy of Music, which he directed for fifteen years early on in London Handel composed for King George the first his famous water music or as in handles beloved German Tongue vassar music. The first time it was performed for King George loved it so much. He ordered it played again and then he ordered it played again. So debuted three times in a row in seventeen seventeen. After. He finished his time handle finished his time at the Royal Academy of Music. He spent much of the Seventeenth Thirties writing operas, and then he said about to write what might be considered his magnum opus the Messiah. Handel. was by all accounts obsessed with work. We would say today a workaholic and he poured himself into his work as a composer as a musician. Sadly in seventeen fifty one he went blind and then in seventeen, fifty, nine, the age of seventy four he died in, London? He was buried in Westminster Abbey and of course, the grand organ of the Abbey and the choir played his beloved. Messiah. Handel one said I should be very sorry if I only entertained them referring to the people who listen to his music, he wanted people to not only be entertained but to beat moved by his music and that was certainly the case with the Messiah. The Messiah was first performed in Dublin on April thirteen, seventeen, forty two it was performed the next year in London and King George the second was in the audience attending and when he got to the chorus for part to the Hallelujah Chorus King George, the second was moved that he stood up, and of course, when the king stands everyone else stands in. So the whole theater stood alongside of the king and that started tradition of standing during the Hallelujah course. The Messiah is in three parts. Part one begins with prophecies of the. Coming Messiah from Isaiah and Psalms, and takes us right to the shepherds watching their flock at night on Bethlehem's hillsides. Then part two covers the passion, the suffering in-depth of Christ and ends with that Hallelujah course part three picks up with Christ's resurrection and continues with his ascension and what theologians call his present session in glory, and then it ends with the day of judgement to come as the Messiah the king comes in glory. Well, that is Handel's Messiah and when he was finished writing the musical score, he signed it s D. G. Solely Dale Gloria.
