From herself, Katie Couric did a sit down for Yahoo news and interviewed the late Supreme Court Justice and beloved beloved iconic justice. People have Ruth Bader Ginsburg t-shirts and, you know, she's the boss. What they call her? What was your nickname? Yeah, yeah. Notorious RBG. Well, she had a pretty strong belief about people who disrespected the national anthem. By kneeling. She had a message for Colin Kaepernick. And the message was pretty strong. The message was, it's disrespectful. It's pretty shameful and you got appreciate the country you're in. And you're not showing a level of appreciation when you disrespect the national anthem by getting on a knee. Hey lefties. That was RBG. However, Katie Couric edited that out of the interview. Because well, she's elderly, she maybe didn't understand the question no. It didn't fit the narrative. So show Katie Couric journalist decided to edit it out. In her memoir, going their couric rights, how she edited out the part where Ginsburg said that those who kneel during The Star-Spangled Banner are showing contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents and grandparents to live a decent life.

Also brian chung-hee's at yahoo finance hayatou. So kate i'm going to start with you and with his observation of the news of the day. The producer price index came out this morning. That is of course Prices at the wholesale level up eight point three percent in a year. Do you suppose anybody at the fed or more accurately at the white house walked over to j pals office and said hey. Jay highlight transitory. Now pal well. I don't know about the the white house. Because they they're sticking to the transitory story They they put out some new forecasts. I think it was lat late last month. Essentially showing that they they still think prices are coming down this year by a lot So they they more than doubled. Their forecast for inflation. This year back in february they thought it would be just a little above two percent now. They're at four point eight for the year. That's fourth quarter over compared to the fourth quarter of last year But you know even to get to that point as you pointed out. Prices are so high in consumer prices last month or in july rather consumer prices were five point four percent over the previous twelve months. And that's the highest. They'd been On an annual basis since two thousand eight so their high and to get to the white house forecast they'd have to come down a lot. So i think that they are feeling the political heat over rising prices right. Republicans are really hammering them on this. But i think that they economists there and even at the fed will find out on a couple of weeks. The fed might mark up their forecasts but so far they continue to think that these price pressures will fade

Changes In The Marketing Media Landscape With Former HAVAS Media CEO Colin Kinsella

"Before the internet era when you're thinking of media you know you're talking about tv print billboards radio to me. It sounds like there is someone who's creating the content and you're buying advertising that's placed in it or not really because as an ad agency you're creating the content so give me an example of creating the content. You're not creating a tv show as an ad agency out a tv show you're creating a levi's jeans s- and they have incredible story line. They've got richness and dutch and if there's another company trying to go against them say the gap you can see big differences between who's going to buy levi's induced by the captured so understanding which target you're going after and what media you think that target is going to absorb more quickly or more in alignment with that ran all of a sudden you start to make a much tighter connection with that person. So the pre internet era media on the integration of is really an advertising play. Eventually you get into the digital age. Now you mentioned google and yahoo already but it seems like a big portion of media's actually starting to create your own media or at least your own web assets as the rise of the internet happened how does the definition of meta change a gap water for sure. There were more opportunities for you to put an advertisement in front of somebody so instead of just having the four main vehicles you now had another typical digital but it was message and it could be incredibly focused. Also be incredibly broad and that was kind of a rare one two punch. It's kind of the classic problem that we have right now. The internet's so big and even from the early days. It felt like you could reach anyone which is a great way to spend a lot lot of money. Maybe not necessarily a great way to efficiently. Spend something that. Hopefully we've got better at in the early days. You're getting brands to build their own websites. They're also marketing themselves on what used to be called portals. But you had the all yahu. Google came along pre social media. What were the effective digital channels. And when did you start making the shift from relying on television radio print and out of home to digital.

America has always been propelled. The future by landmark national investments. Investments and only the government. Has the capacity to make. And to do that, says Biden. Congress must pass the infrastructure deal that invests in traditional infrastructure like building and maintaining roads, highways, bridges, power systems and more. The president's speech in Wisconsin traveled the same theme as an op ed, he wrote for Yahoo News, which said. In part, neither Democrats nor Republicans got everything they wanted in this agreement, but that's what it means to compromise and reach consensus. The very heart of democracy.

I want you to know what he's doing. We have the head of the Civil rights division of the Justice Department who is a flat out her name is Clark as I recall flat out racist, she said, and written some of the most unbelievable stuff. I think Susan Collins voted for confirmation to but nonetheless, there she is. And having secured that position. At the request of Biden and this attorney general. What's happening now? According to Yahoo News, John Ward. Attorney General Merrick Garland. Said that the Department of Justice will dramatically increase its focus on preventing voter suppression. Now you have to understand something. Voter suppression for the Democrat party means what Means state legislatures having rational voting systems in place. Not anarchy. So he's going to increase its focus on preventing voter suppression by doubling the number of lawyers in the civil rights division. In response to a rash of lawsuits or look Excuse me. Laws that have been made made it harder to vote in many states. Now you have to understand how lousy the media Made it harder to vote in many states. So if I want to leave Virginia and vote in, say, Maryland and they say you can't because I'm not a citizen of Maryland. You see, Maryland has just made it harder for me to vote in Maryland. Mr. Producer you understand? It's just disgusting. Our media have really killed this country. We will use all existing provisions to ensure that we protect every qualified Americans seeking to participate in our democracy, Garland said in one of his Castro like speeches Garland compared his action to that taken by former Attorney General Robert Kennedy, who said the Justice Department needed a lot more lawyers to combat laws and said says nothing to do. With what Robert Kennedy had to do during segregation. This is so outrageously disgusting. They're going to double the lawyers and the civil rights division and unleash them on our country. Harass the state legislatures try and push this H R one s one into law, forcing states to adopt them. Because Congress couldn't pass it. That is exactly what's going on here.

"One of the things that i think we we both know. And many women no is the lack of women in executive positions It's finance especially in technology. So what would you say you did to cut through that technology ceiling. I should say And really thrive as a leader. So one thing that i think's really interesting about actually all of the women in in technology finance and other industries that are predominantly male dominated. I think the thing that really is most interesting is. It's not one thing that defines or creates the opportunity for you to be out of cut through. It's it's a series of decisions and the various people that you meet that you interact with that actually ultimately shaped my experience in a in my and looking at other other colleagues and other women who have been successful they share similar stories. You sort of can create these different opportunities to loan and try new things. And i think there's a couple of pieces that contribute to that one is creating that Network of trusted advisers and supporters. Who you can bounce ideas off to is not being afraid to crowd source for ideas and recognize that you most things that you encounter at work actually in life someone else's sold before so one thing that i i wish i'd learned earlier. Is that power of crowdsourcing and the power of asking people how they solve problems like whether it be making a decision or getting a job or asking for an expanded role or responsibility all the way through to handling challenging. Hr problems or you know difficult relationships with teammates and things like that so i think that building that network is really critical and being confident enough to utilize it and as i said a crowdsourcing is something that i learnt probably about ten or fifteen years ago. I wish i'd done it. When i was younger.

They banned it But it had appeal. It had a allure because it was the one thing that was constant when fiat currency is as we've seen my lord. We think about the geopolitical shape up shake up in the past twenty years. It's hard to understand what the future currency any particular currency's going to be so again. I think cryptos going to have a crazy rocket ship. Ride up and down along the way but my guess is is that something like a big win particular will be substantially higher twenty years now than where it is right and who knows what role it has the monetary system. Yeah it's a fascinating thesis. You just laid out there. I wanna shit topics. And i wanna talk about. Wealth inequality in this country and capitalism. And of course stakeholder capitalism something. I know that you care very deeply about so kind of just stepping back again. Looking big picture We've certainly seen markets just rip and we wonder you know what does that do. And how does that exacerbate the wealth inequality in this country. And what do you think needs to be done to to flatten the curve. If you will up growing inequality where we got this huge disconnect between mainstream wall street and there's so many data points along. I mean we. We've says july. I think we ever eight million more people in poverty than we had just in the last six months despite the recovery that we had Those that are the most vulnerable have suffered the most and until we get. The vaccine will probably continue along that path so listen. The private economy is twenty trillion and the government's four and a half train and then public philanthropies probably three hundred fifty. Four hundred billion so private philanthropies. Excuse me so the corporate sector. The private sector's forty times. The size of philanthropy in. It's a four and a half times the size of us garbage so we're going to have true. Social change has to start in the private sector..

By any means but you did have a fascinating thesis would love to kind of get an update on that especially at current levels and higher thinking about the crypto currency in the context of your portfolio. I'm on an expert. On bitcoin by any stretch is just what the market cap of five hundred billion. It's it's the wrong market cap in a world where you've got ninety dollars worth of equity market cap and got us how many trillions of fiat currency et cetera. So it's the wrong market cap for instance relative to goal which is eight or nine trillion. The bitcoin reminds me so much of the internet stocks. Nine hundred ninety nine because the internet was in its infants infancy. No one knew how to value it because of the world possibility that lay ahead. Would you can be certain of. Is that probably twenty years from now. our kids and grandkids would our all of us will be using some type of digital currency digital currency will be Will be used by every sovereign. They may have their own digital currency. Whatever they'll be very very very commonplace at that point in time cash may be gone and so in that world. Where does bitcoin finian As well as some of the other cryptocurrencies. Where does it theory him. Or tattered i kind of i. I don't know i'm not smart enough to figure that out. I think The bitcoin if i if i really had to kind of guess what the future's going to be it's going to be a lot like the metals complex where you have precious cryptovest might be bitcoin. It's the first crypto first-mover world that so compressed it has that historical integrity within digital currencies. That it will always have so that might again because of its fight supply. That might be the precious crypto. Then you're gonna have transactional cryptocurrencies along with the britain's and they may be more like the industrial industrial metal. So where you have goals of precious metal you got copper platinum palladium and sarah that are industrial led aluminum industrial metals. You may have precious crip. Toni may have industrial crypto. So what i do know is that it's no way passable today to know what the next ten or twenty years you're going to be like and i know that if i was if i had again taken position on i'm gonna i'm gonna take the brand name. Which is bitcoin. I'm going to assume that it's the wrong prize for the possibilities that it has And i'm going to assume that the path forward from here is north and again we had no idea in nine hundred and had a had a how the internet was gonna sort out and there were some companies that obviously do phone nine nine. Despite the crash came that did just incredibly well and ended up becoming dominant players in the world. That's what's going to my guess is that's what we're going to sort through that kind of crazy competition winners. Losers at cetera in the digital

"All right dan roberts delayed have slobber rubin joining us for this yahoo finance presents. Lot of thanks for coming on. Thanks for having me dan. So you guys today are launching your new startup. and it's called vincent. Tell us about What vincent is what it does. And why now of course you are primarily known for your co founding of gogo which has been very successful. Yeah we're really excited to announce vincent you can find it at with vincent dot com and it's a marketplace to find alternative investments so with my experience at indie gogo i continue to have seen continued growth in alternative investments and we just thought that in the last decade there's so many new platforms that are offering alternatives whether it's our cars or real estate or farmland or wine or trading cards etc etc but. There's not one place where you can look at all your options and discover and diligence those options. And that's what vincent is is kind of like a zillow or kayak an aggregate across all alternative investment options. And we're looking to build the largest database of all investments on the internet now indigo obviously was crowdfunding and has gotten very big kind of become a household name. This startup kind of naturally make sense for you is the next step if we zoom out a little. What are you seeing happen with. Various alternative investments especially with young investors. I mean especially in twenty twenty. We've seen kind of the rise of the robinhood investor regular young people. You know we at yahoo. Finance retail investors but people who may have been stock market newbies. Who have gotten into buying stocks. And now you know you could bring in crypto currency you could gold or number of types of investments that young investors are sort of suddenly waking up to re observing that trend. And is that why this was the perfect timing for vincent. That's exactly right so originally even indie gogo wanted offer investments back in two thousand eight. We pass the jobs act and then had our own equity cropping platform. That's where we saw the appetite for all of these alternative investments. I think in the last twenty thirty years people done a great job to really learn how to do equity trading so public equities and robin hood is the apex of really making it. Mainstream of getting everybody involved. But i think the next frontier is all term investments more of that opaque market that. We don't have that transparency. And that is where you can create wealth in today's zero interest rate environment. You know you need to find a place to put your money. And all of these alternatives are really flourishing. Uc bitcoin at almost an all time high. Uc gold very.

Yeah. Well, yeah, they definitely need to be targeted toward the less, you know fortunate and the Have Nots versus to have God's they're all kind of see but dead. You know, you got to get beyond the obsession with those socialism doctor King said we got socialism for the rich and free enterprise for the poor, right the ones who are really getting socialism and communism that goes up at the top who are Distributing their cash among themselves. There are many redistributive mechanisms to those who are beneath. Look at our housing policies. If if housing is the entree in the middle class, that's a huge mechanism of economic wealth that can be measured and we can do stuff about opening up housing markets making them more Ecuador standing with the Supreme Court saying that certain practices is not just a the consequence of it used to be I mean the intent like if you had intent to harm somebody with housing or be prejudiced thoughts, okay, you were wrong, but if the consequence was that they were still harmed. So what the Supreme Court said? No, you gotta look at consequences. Well, so outcomes are as just important just as important job. As intent that's one way another way of these educational disparities. If there is a correlation roughly hewn between what kind of education you have and what kind of money you make then it would behoove us to enforce certain educational practices that pay attention to the least of these and if the tax base is the determinant for education and so many Iraq owes then the government which has been a beneficiary of and it you know of a kind of you know, Jim Crow approach an apartheid racially speaking in the law passed to you know, fill its coffers for white education vs. Black one then we owe some money toward those people who are at the bottom of the totem pole and then figuring out what kind of jobs and job-training could help black and Indigenous and Latin X people to get higher up on the totem pole. Those are a few things that can be done and stop the voter suppression. That would be Huge thing that now those things get fought in courts, but they can also the Attorney General can have engagement with these issues on local municipalities and finally in terms of leasing, you know, under Obama Eric Holder and then Loretta Lynch, but especially Eric Holder was talking about these consent decrees and looking at these police departments and it's another thing to be done again. So look at them cuz police departments are extracting all kinds of monies. Look at Ferguson, Missouri all kind of money from the local people making their coffers fill while depleting resources for people on the ground. Those are a few ways and few things we can do to make sure that we can Target those monies toward the most vulnerable.

"It will get worse. But I think the important thing is to actually look this is one of the things that I'm hopeful about in in in kind of frustration an internal thing is have a technology strategy, right actually. In fact be saying what are the things that we should be building too? Because by example, you know not getting up on the hardware and the chips side I think is super important issue. I think actually in fact doubling down on the things that where a lot of the deep Tech AI platforms that's happening over in China Chinese government is trying to wants to be in the lead in twenty Thirty. Well, in fact the US ecosystems with universities and the companies and so forth is in the lead today. Well work on try to try to maintain that try to make that happen and I think that's part of that now, I think what we'll see is well, you know some stuff will be in China some stuff will be in the US some stuff will be in Europe that will be a good Universe of interdependence see because part of the whole, you know, the the what what what's awesome about Capitalism one of the things is make trade not war like as we have these interdependencies. Those are actually very very good for us in a stable World Order. And so I think we want that but I do think that it should be you know, like it's going to be hard and there's going to be some definite, you know, collisions fender benders, you know, you know scratches and it's going to take leadership to work through it. Talk about Kobe and pandemic and this time that we're living in which is so crazy. But you know what it's done is exacerbated the division instant divisions in society not the least of which say were the banks and the tech stocks and tech companies and Silicon Valley from the rest of the US economy. Never mind the rest of society. So, you know, you had this just incredible an increase in valuation of these companies now, maybe coming back to Earth because of a vaccine I mean so so, what is your sort of top-line thinking then we can drill down a little bit more after that. Line thinking is you know, obviously, you know, this last year is the difference between, you know, kind of reasonable government and terrible government because we paid trillions of dollars of debt Millions job losses and thousands of thousands of lives that we didn't need to pay you and anyone who looks at the numbers you can't say Okay 5 x in cases and they'll fatalities of the average of the rest of the world now, we've got some glimmer Of greatness, you know the Gates Foundation and companies, you know private Enterprise going out and building vaccines at a rapid pace and all the rest of the that's great. But I think we need to return to a belief in science. I believe in expertise. I believe him, you know, like dr. Pouchy who is served under both Democratic and Republican, you know administration's is a very credible expert who's just a truth-teller. It's a super important place for them to be as Americans and that should never be politicized in any particular way now, I think what that's going to come to is we're going to have another year of turbulence because as we figure out the kinds of things I'm wearing a mask is part of how I'm you know caring for my fellow Americans not spreading disease to them..

"Us about the relationship with Amazon now and are they a friend or a friend of me or how does that whole relationship work? Yeah, I would I would definitely put them in the friend category page, you know, when you meet created this relationship a few years ago and started testing and I can describe that in a moment. It definitely got a few questions like wait a minute aren't you competing with Amazon course, I would say there's plenty of market share to be had right there's billions of dollars in the kinds of products we sell but a few years ago. I mean we're looking at the incredible company they were building them tell when they had and we have assets they have and they have assets we don't have I mean we look at our you know, we get the store base. I keep talking about right healthy robust and you know another way to our earlier discussion the future of brick-and-mortar. It's not just about transacting and buying products as I mentioned. We're using them to fulfill Goods. So they're omni-channel fulfillment center as well. And so we've really dead. Challenge ourselves to think creatively about all the ways that a this this physical space can be used and serve our families. So, you know a few years ago we connected with a guy has on and talked about, you know, lots of ideas actually on how we could bring our complementary strengths. We've got this incredible store base and this consumer base. They have this tremendous reach and loyalty offer. Is there a win-win in here in can we think differently and build on each other's strengths. And so we started testing this idea where at the core of it. We accept Amazon returns and one of the insights we have about our customers. Andy is that and we knew this from our own experience customers hate dealing with returns packaging up finding the packing slip going dealing with it and we have already seen that 90% of our returns happen in the store. So how could we extend that and have that really be a skill of the company that we can leverage into other spaces and Amazon didn't have the convenience of these twelve hundred years. Is that we offer so the service and a nutshell is we take Amazon returns and we make it really easy for the customer. We have a dedicated space. It takes literally seconds to process the return the big Advantage free and the customer doesn't have to pack it to that. So literally they can just walk in with Whatever item that maybe they change their mind on and bring it to Kohl's and they're you know, they're done and what we get is we get our new traffic and importantly building a relationship with some new customers and what we're finding is we are getting new customers and we're seeing a younger customer and those are both very strategically important to us,

"Martin Luther King Junior said yo, the the the Civil Rights bill didn't cost you nothing voting rights ain't costing you nothing, but I'm asking for now economic parody. You don't deal with that and then it's aftermath of his death housing the housing Fair wage act for housing past right sixty-eight that that cost something that means you got to give up your rapacious, you know, individualism or your patience corporate practice birth. When it comes to real estate companies that are red-lining and directing black people towards certain neighborhoods and ripping them off and taking their money without giving them the bang on their buck. So all that stuff means it's just something and until it costs you something as a corporate America, you really ain't doing anything to make a difference in terms of race in America. Have you thought about the people who are leading diversity efforts in corporations and often times, they'll put a diverse person in that role and then there are some who argue. Well, I know that actually to really Empower that roll. It should be a white male wage, right? Cuz then that person has real skin in the game their job is on the line in terms of how much diversity they can bring to the company. Have you thought about that? And what's your take on those kinds of issues? Yeah. It sounds great doesn't it? Sounds like ideally that would be the case. There are many instances where that's already the case. And what ends up happening is that white guy in charge doesn't really get it off. Because he's so much part of a dominant world-view in mindset that even when he intends good and well and even when he wants to do good in his hands well and even when he or she should say he understands the moves and gestures of dominant culture to you know, ideally then yes, they would be there ready to go in they'd be Trojan horses. Hey, we're Trojan horses. And in fact of us are all of the black and brown and red and yellow and Indigenous people and we've come in and we're going to take over and that's so much. So wow, that sounds like an ideal point. I think we need white men present on the in the structure, but I think they need to you know, in order to model what it looks like. They should model their subordination to a person higher on the totem pole than them who happens to be a person of color, right? That's the enactment of it at that level and let me say this one thing and then you come back so Jeff.

"Not according to Linked In terms of service is so we're pulling this off and so you know, so it has a little but not not as much as not as much as the other platforms have to contend with so as we go into the Biden era, I'm curious as to what you think about the direction and Tanner of Washington DC's desire to perhaps rain in or regulate the big Tech platforms what path that's going to take because it's not at all clear cut and you've got Ted Cruz Davis is Celine now Joe Biden Senator Warner people with very different political perspectives who seem to share of distrust and anxiety about the platform's but that's where the the Common Ground ends. Right? So so the roughly speaking I'm dead. This is not a no regulation point of view but I am a very strong believer that we've now moved to a multipolar world a China will be building more and more of the technology platforms that matter in the coming years. And actually December. I hope that there's other places like I you know, you know, one of the gray like Investments we have is is incubator called on Twitter first, which is building Tech communities in Europe and in Singapore office. So, you know, like I hope for for more of this but what that means is you don't disable your own player, right? You don't go. Hey, let's try to do that. What you want to do is you want to shape them you want to say look, it's nice out comes May missing information. Here is our social mandate for how we change that so we have more truth than the media ecosystem, you know, those kinds of things are important but like the the classic notion of an in-store break up. I think those are generally speaking going to be actually in fact a counter American health and prosperity. And by the way, I'd say that as my primary thing is an investor as new start. As competing with these large tech companies. This is not like an embodied interest but actually in fact, I think where we have four maybe five tech Giants today, I think, you know five years from now, you'll have text 10 Tech Giants and those competition between those Tech Giants is what creates lots of space for startups to either, you know, get their initial base or to grow and to being the 11th or to be bought by one of them. And so that's part of the reason why I think actually in fact the the antitrust isn't the right thing but figuring out how to contribute the right way to the health of of our society and gloves Society is the right thing. Put two questions here. So first of all when you're talking about going from 5 to 10, are you talking about the other five being in China? And then also what specifically though short of antitrust and breaking things off would be your remedies so so on the 1st actually in fact, if if you're including China, you're like five going to twenty-five. Yeah, right. So it's it's much larger. I was actually just talking about, you know, the the kind of the growth of companies like, you know, Airbnb and others as they as as they establish, you know on the stage and obviously, you know, there's a bunch, you know right now around with Netflix and Salesforce and other kinds of things..

Has He done a good job as he done a badge on. What's what's your assessment there. We're all different. People have different views. I guess if you're a Democrat yeah foreign view your Publican another I think the most important thing was was achieved was was the reduction in regulation. and there are some other important things from tax perspective but that it sets the stage for longer term growth in a way that wouldn't happen. If you hadn't made those changes you also so who talked about the strategic and policy form the business leaders that trump had you put together but after Charlottesville that group disbanded and it sounded like the book that you had some regrets about that specifically things that could have been done looking back. How do you think things could've been done differently and what would have happened if the group stayed together we'll the group. The group group was formed basically because the president asked for a small group of people who who could tell them where he was going in the wrong direction and and suggest other ways and so it's meant to be an open forum where were you could give input you know she didn't agree fine few agreed fine and that's a precious kind of attribute to have in in in government because usually when you disagree with the President or prime minister doesn't matter which country you can do that one or two times by the time you with the third and fourth worth you becoming less favor so this was a good structural thing to have unfortunately with the with the outcome of Charlottesville and and and and sort of a number of the members who are running big companies you know like half of their half of their companies had employees who were Democrats were we're very unhappy with the president and they were in effect putting pressure on the CEO you have customers you know half of whom are Democrats who who were also putting pressure and then there are also some Republicans who were unhappy so you know I I started getting context from the members saying I'm I'm under excruciating pressure here and you know I. I don't WanNa do this because it's hurting my business and for me is easy decision. Why why should you do something. That's hurting your business is supposed to be a good thing not turn out to be bad thing for you and so we decided the the best thing to do was to end the group on the other hand. the purpose of the group was was was a good thing for the country bipartisan. Now you also talk about that. You've been involved actively in the trade talks. I know you've worked with business leaders and and leaders in China. We've seen the trade tensions escalate and and since you've been involved in those talks you also said that they're the most complicated okay. Did you ever experienced why why is that complicated well. It's been two and a half years and don't take two and a half years and the he's wide. It's complicated is actually simple. that China for the last four years grown more than any other country in world history it's pretty amazing but they've done it through a system. You know where they have relatively closed borders. They have high tariffs they they have a variety of other practices which are not done in an developed world like the United States and Europe and some other countries and and so given the fact that somewhere between forty and fifty percent of the people in the United States are having a tough time economically. They're unhappy with their government. CA previous government doesn't matter and they want changes in their angry in and they should it'd be and and so those people after they've run out of sort of people to attack in the United States for their unhappiness happiness they go abroad and China's the target and so- China's where the jobs when you know and China's were a lot of wealth one during that period so so people want China to adjust China recognize that that's what happened. There are a lot a lot of people who just like it that way because it works. There are other people who recognize. You just can't keep doing that. We've things getting relatively typically worse in the world and so there needs to be an adjustment people don't like giving up things that they have the the United States would like to normalize all of these issues as soon as possible for China so so you've got something that's going to happen over over the long term. The question is how fast does it happen and how much of it happens and so that that's an area uh of of tension as each one of these cultures decides what they're really willing to satisfy as a first step because you're not gonna get get all this done. Nobody gives up the economic structure. They've had for four years. It's turned them in winter into a winner because someone else asked but but they're coming back to the table again which is a good thing. I think we'll get a deal. And when do you think we'll get a deal well. Nobody knows that type of stuff what what's important is is it appears that this is a serious engagement and we'll see where it goes I. I don't think there's anyone trying to handicap who knows how handicapped but except I think there's now a recognition uh on both sides that that that the decoupling of these two economies is really adversely affecting the world world global growth doesn't matter which part of the world and if you do that as a long term strategy that will have a depressing impact on global growth and that's a net losing strategy and so hopefully the fact that we're going into re-engagement is is the recognition by the parties that you know particularly typically by China that that this in their long term best interests either to decouple it kind of brings me to the Schwartzman scholars here's at Tsinghua University and you wrote about how we could fall into the city's trap if China and the US cannot find a quote cooperative trusting way to manage the shift in political power How much does that worry you. You think about problems and things and you worry sometimes. How much does that were you when when we got the idea for this in two thousand eleven worried me then but I must say I was wrong. I thought this would take ten or fifteen fifteen years. It started happening two years ago you know in two thousand sixteen so so it's it's pretty clear that that you know with the tensions rising between you know sort of us in China and the developed world and China and there's a real need to have some kind of buffer some kind of a group of trained people who appreciate you know the good parts of China and there are many and the parts that need to be modified and can take a lifetime. We're all thinking about those things and talking to the citizens in the thirty eight countries that they come from you've also given away hundreds of millions of dollars to be a lot of it has gone toward education your former public school. I know some schools here in New York where you've sponsored students Yale. Mit not the Schwartzman scholars but if you had to pick one area where do you think you will have the greatest impact of all of those. I've mentioned well. That's like asking something about which which of their children they really like the way I was raised you. You love of all your children inquiry and so. I can't give you a more perceptive than that each thing that I've tried to do. I I think is really really really important for the constituencies that are involved but it also seems that the common thread is education and and how do you think that you can play a role in solving for education. Where do you see some of the dislocation some of the problems that could be solved. It's important to try and support a variety of things to do this and from individuals students in Catholic school system where we can we have ninety percent of them has minorities and seventy percent at the poverty line or below and ninety eight percent graduate ninety six go on to college. It's like an amazing amazing said about comes and you're a great universities around the world can address certain types of problems like China. We're trying to bring the world to China so so that the world can understand China better in the United States you know working on. Ai Ethics issues which are really going to be critical as people get a better idea. What's going on with you were up in? Mit with me and we talked about those issues. I'm doing some of that at Oxford and these are big the challenges and opportunities facing us as as human beings Americans an international constituency so I like doing these kinds of big things have been a wonderful product project at Yale of where I think will change the way students relate and and have a central place to be which I never had when I was there so everything I do try and impact an important problem or issue. You know one of the issues that a lot of your peers have brought up. I'm just thinking for example is brought up capitalism in the need to reform perform capitalism. Do you think capitalism needs to be reformed and what sort of role can folks like yourself. Play capitalism needs to be reformed less. An Education Haitian has to be made better. If we had a much more qualified workforce that than than capitalism per se would work better to try and get capitalism to fix an entire society is a good objective and I and company should do what they can for that but there's different levers in our system that it actually have to come into play to make it all work. I only have a couple more questions for you. you have some simple rules in your book for identifying market tops and bottoms. I suppose this is a great framework for looking at where we are in the cycle so right now using those roles. Where do you think we are. And where do you see US heading well. We're not at the bottom and we're not in the middle so so. I think it's a time where US probably growing. I don't know we'll find out retrospectively but somewhere around two percent. Maybe a tiny bit less. got great consumers seventy percent of the economy economy and manufacturing going down and stock markets of pretty much records so so in you you know bond markets are sort of records and so usually when everything's doing records all the time and there's a lot of geopolitical uncertainty. It's usually like a wake up call. It's not read but it's yellow and it it. It makes you be more conservative. When when you're investing makes you think more about downsides. It makes you wanna buy higher-quality things because your chance of accidentally being lucky which happens at the bottom of the cycle is much lower our all right. Steve you in your book with a question you right. What's next who knows so what's next for you well. That's why I ended okay fair and I think what what happens what I've learned in my life is is all you have to keep doing what you're doing. Keep getting all all the feeds from from all the activities whether it's blackstone or charitable stuff or things were touched government and what happens is as you see something that you didn't see before and that leads you to something big and something interesting and I've learned all you have to do is be active at weight and you'll see it Stephen Schwarzman. CEO of the Blackstone Group and author of what it takes thank you so much for your time terrific.

"Thanks so much for joining us of course Steve in many ways your representative of the American dream you are on the Forbes list as the one hundred richest person in the world. You've built one of the most successful asset management companies and one of the biggest. You're sort of an unlikely story. You're the son of a dry good seller. You grew up in a middle-class background. You Chill Public School so I have to ask you this. If you're starting out today would you have what it takes to gain the same level of success well. You never can predict exactly what your path would be. When you start I I was born at a time. Where you know was was easier than it is. Today I was the second year the post World War Two baby boom so there weren't many people ahead of you so so I think I probably could've figured out a route in today's world but it was definitely easier when I was going to junior high school and high school in College and getting my first job now I just reading about you. Even when you're you were in high school you're always a leader or when you were in college or in the army or starting now on Wall Street. You always took these leadership. Roles addressed problems was that's. That's something natural to you or did you learn that quality knows natural. You know I I always liked to be in charge of something or lead. The way or fix something that was was not optimal or broken and it was it was comfortable. I sort of always wanted things to work well and so when I saw something that wasn't you know I could talk to the principal the school or you know sort of a colonel in the army or the dean of another another university. department and I always felt I was doing something. That was was good. you know for people. I worked with breath and just like that kind of role. That really stood out to me is that you wrote letters to people you would write letters to business leaders. He would actually invite you into their homes and have discussions with you. So do you experience that today and you find that young people reaching out to you and do you find ways to give back to them. I I have like a steady stream of people sometimes. When I go places somebody will come up at hand me a note you know. Could I talk to you or I'm I'm sort of at a point in my career where I could use some advice and I tried to do as many of those as I can but I can't do the mall so so there's a randomness to it but but none of us become successful because it's just us. Everybody needs someone to support report them. Everybody needs in effective mentor or more than Hey. My Mentor and relying on other people helped me. He you know sort of wind my way to wherever I've gotten and I think that we all have an obligation to other people to help with them on their journey as well when you start on Wall Street. This was a funny story. You told you caught the attention of senior leaders early on at Lehman Brothers. Lou Glucksman c'mon yelled at you for not sitting up straight and he later learned a lot of good things about you while she was smaller than do you think that's still the case now that young people can stand out early on amongst their senior leaders well. I think so all of us in a more senior capacity acidy are always looking around us to to see who's got something special and because if you're in any kind of you know a vocation that involves human beings you realize that people with real talent real drive you know have that certain special initial quality recall tens nines or not so bad either fell take you places a bill develop things that you haven't thought auto they'll they'll have a sense as they get older and you develop those people it's great for them but but it's also great for whatever institution you're in whether it's a for profit like blackstone or a not for profit. You just mentioned tens. How do you find a tin. What do you look for to find a ten. What does it take well It's it's part of interviewing. What what you find is. After the age of forty people are the reputation so if you meet someone and you're a little under impressed and everyone says they're amazing the chance the Thera- mazing is actually quite high but when they're younger than forty twenties and Mid Thirties and below. It's a little more challenging because they themselves have been trying out different approaches and different different print presentation styles so so I I like to spend time with people unstructured context usually when meet someone may give me resume usually buried in the resume is something like in the fourth grade they were the US national chess champion or something eh that they really want you to talk about because it's so odd and so I take that odd thing and I you know I acknowledged. Put it there and you know what happened to you with AD and and then you know we can talk about almost anything I'm trying to feel how smart they are. How how stable they are how curious curious they are and usually you can do that by just looking into their eyes and sometimes I'll walk in a room and talk about what I was just doing if it's exciting and if recoil with fever because it's different situation they probably won't be able to handle things that come at them in unpredictable way what you wanted to do was hold the table and to be pretty much of an equal because because they are just because you're senior all that means is that you've had more experience doesn't mean that you're better than anybody that you meet my now. It's really difficult difficult to get a job at blackstone. I was reading the stats in the book so I ask you this. Do you think if you're applying to a job at blackstone that they would hire you well. This is what I worry about because I don't think they would not because my grades wasn't as Soon Macao Audi or Magda. I wasn't even cum laude and and you know so so there are different modes of learning and I'm not so bad that some of this stuff but but it's not because I test to to a degree that a lot of the people we hire so so I I think it's important that we look at different factors here at the firm. The conservative way is always higher the brightest person. I think it's important to be involved in student government of some type Emperor Club or something where you demonstrate leadership I tend to like people who are athletes only because you can take pain if you're a good athlete that you push yourself to a point where it's not not pleasant well shifting gears. I you WanNa talk about the private equity business just broadly on but first. Let's talk about interest rates because they've been incredibly low and that's probably one of the most important metrics when it comes to your business so what's your outlook rates well. It's hard to go much lower and if you do it's not particularly productive because in most most of the country's economic system at the centerpieces or financial institutions banks and and countries grow when they extend credit to people businesses and people I if if their interest spread is so low because rates are so low that they have have trouble making money the way many in Europe do that then it hurts economic growth for the whole country so there are I view it as a law of diminishing finishing returns as rates go lower and lower and lower it also hurts people who save because they can't make much money either so so so you know now in Europe is about a third of the country's or negative interest rates in other words. You have to pay them to take your money seems to me. There's something wrong with that. Model title and those countries as individual countries aren't doing particularly well. Well people often ask you for advice. So what would would you recommend in these sorts of situations well. I think there are two things you can do. One of those is reform of an economic economic system and and another thing that you can do is use fiscal policies policies to spend more money to stimulate an economy but just forcing rates down into negative territory. I you know I I don't see Addison as a particular path to glory when you started blackstone in nineteen eighty five you wrote that you had two big tailwinds the the US economy and then the unraveling of Wall Street if you were a young person we're starting a firm like blackstone today. Do you think they'd have the same sort of success well. There's a lot of ways to be successful today. There are other advantages you you you. You have the chance of borrowing money very cheaply. You you have a huge number of new technologies. Were were you could become an expert where perhaps somebody isn't and that's a path to success that didn't exist when I was younger so whenever you have a big robust economy and government's printing lots of money you can usually get some money because there's so much around and and the changes in the economy in structural changes now vastly exceed anything when I was younger just two years into your career you made made what you described it as one of the biggest investment mistakes or the firm did and someone an investor berated unit almost made you cry and you often talk about failures as opportunities to learn so what did you learn from that experience and how did that change your investment process going forward that was that was perhaps is one of the defining moments of of the ferment my career. We basically bought a company where two partners disagreed one thought. It was is going to be a big winner. The other one thought it was going to go bankrupt. I picked the first partner. We didn't have any processes. We're just sitting in front of my desk. I thought I was King Solomon at at the age of thirty eight. Guess what I wasn't and we lost our money. This was totally traumatic. Because it was our third investment. and one of our investors asked me to come in and basically started screaming at me and in my family nobody. Nobody raised their voices. I I never heard the raise voice in my household so that makes me very sensitive the two two meaning when what other people are saying in this case this was like some some some sponges speakers turned up uh definitely and I I I left this thing I I almost started crying. The Sky was was was berating me with good reason and I basically said this never going to happen again. We're GONNA come up with the different system. we're going to assess risk. We need something something different and so what we invented is basically what we use today which which involves a team doing a written presentation listing Aliskhan listing all the risks other factors and giving it to a group of people to read two days before so they actually don't don't get hoodwinked by somebody going with flip charts right in front of them and then we get about depends different groups different number of people just say for example you have eight people around the table and the team walks in basically part of the rule that we developed back then it's adapted a little bit now was that every person at that table has to recite every person has to point out the risks and how what the probability of those risks should be in their view and how bad it would be if that happened and it's not about watching one smart person. Jason interrogated team and having seven others the a paid audience. Nobody's an audience and if the people who bring bring the proposal realize that they are basically going to be intellectually filleted every time they come in the room then it's never personal because it happens every time and it makes the team be much better prepared and it makes everyone who's at the table much better underprepared and then there's always questions you send them back. You do the same process again. By the time you finish. We have quite a good idea Kia of what the prospect of loss could be. There's real prospect of loss to it and then we price the deal and if we buy Elliot. It's not the fault of the team if it doesn't work out all the reason it isn't their fault about ninety percent of the time. It's one of those three variables one of those three risks that happen and we knew it was going to happen but we didn't think it would really happen or we didn't think it would be so bad and and so the team has the security of knowing that it's it's not their decision and it's not even their assessment of whether we should go forward. It's all of ours and so that way it's it's very secure fun here and lifetime learning and we're all exploring Lorde together and and that's what I learned that was the biggest change in our business was realized I wasn't so smart. I needed he's everybody. He said he said that psychology is one of your greatest strengths as investors at the characteristic that sets you apart but that's really helpful because my math isn't very very good as S..
