Should The US Expect an Interest Rate Hike in 2022?
"Do you think it's too premature to have that cycle conversation? A conversation about the cycler? Maybe this fed just never raising interest rates. It is a little premature. There is a huge debate raising about you know what kind of inflation we're going to get. We know we'll get some temporarily Defends acknowledged as much But will it be sustained? That's a big question. I do think, though at the end of this year if we have unemployment and 4.5% is the Fed expects on his secretary, Yellin says, we should get the full employment next year. And if we have inflation it 2.5% at the end of this year, which isn't impossible. It is going to become increasingly untenable for the Fed to argue that the appropriate policy rate in those conditions is zero. So I actually think that the federal we pushed in the hiking sooner rather than later. So I think the scenario where the Fed just never heights through the cycle. Is it pretty unlikely one. We put a number on sooner you a camp on 2022 type of call If you're on the FOMC right now, Megan. Um, you know, some force meteo the Fed has said that they're going to go ahead and take her purchases first, and that they'll provide a long runway for investors to do. That s O. You know if we ended up Having the Fed hiking in 2022. It would probably happen in the latter part of that year, but I think that's certainly possible and certainly I think it's Zlenko before the Feds own forecast, according to the DOC plots, which isn't until Only 24th the earliest. That implies also that they will start to taper there

Biden Introduces His Economic Team

His nominee for Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, served with Biden and the Obama administration, Yellin says.

Biden names diverse economic team with four women in top roles to help build recovery
"Group that features four women in top roles, including former Federal Reserve Board chair Janet Yellen as his choice for Treasury secretary. Reporter Jim Tankersley of The New York Times has been following these developments closely. He covers economics for the paper, and he's also the author of the recent book, The Riches of this Land. Jim Tankersley. Thanks so much for being with us again. What do these choices as a group tell you about Joe Biden's priorities What he may do once he takes office. Well, thanks so much for having me Judy. This is a group that is really focused on workers and on labor and maybe one of the most of union friendly groups of top economic advisers. We've seen in the White House in a long time and in particular for policy right out of the gate. It's a group that's going to be very committed on the idea of trying to get the economy up and running as fast as it can as quickly as possible in order to boost worker wages. And it's gonna be not at all shy about pushing additional deficit spending by the federal government in order to get there. And specifically with regard to covert relief, Covad economic relief. Can you tell anything from looking at this group? But what what might happen? Yeah, They've been very clear a number of them from Janet Yellen, the Neera tanden on down on these pics about the sorts of things that need to be done to help. People and businesses and state local governments survived. This pandemic on DAT includes more direct aid tol division ALS. It includes more help for small businesses and in particular age of states and local governments who have big budget holes, But also things like passing pandemic paid leave, You know a program to give family and paid leave. The workers who are on the front lines of code in particular, and I think that you will see all of those policies pushed early on by the biting teeth. So let's talk specifics. Janet Yellin at Treasury, the first woman to hold that job as we were saying, what do we know? Based on her record? What to expect from her. Janet Yellen is a labor economist by training on someone who really pushed the Federal Reserve when she was the chairman of the reserve to keep interest rates low for a long time in order to stoke growth, and I think we'll see more of that out of her hear more of a focus on inequality and unworkable is and you know another thing that she's focused on a lot in the last couple of years is on Tearing down the barriers of discrimination in the economy to help women in particular succeed, and I think you'll see her focus on that as well. It's it's been a big deal for her in the economics profession, but it's something that she is talked a lot about having enormous consequences for the broader economy. And then Cecilia Rouse, who President elect Biden Has said he wants to head his council of Economic Advisers. Not as well, a known name as the others. But so what should we know about her? She'll if she's confirmed, should be the first black economist ahead the Council of Economic Advisers she was on the council under President Barack Obama. She's also a labor economist, ah, real expert in a variety of things having to do with labor and education, and just like Jenna Galan has, as focused a lot of academic work on the effects of discrimination. S O. There are some common themes here with the team. And then there is Tol, the Office of Management and Budget. Neera Tanden, who has been around she's someone who I think is familiar. Too many who watch what's going on in Washington. What do what do we look for? From her? Near attended, runs the center for American Progress, which is a liberal think tank, and she has been on adviser to Hillary Clinton. She's been around Washington for a long time. She is someone who has really pushed on a variety of sort of liberal policy agenda items that is more of a political player than the other two. But I think with Neera Tanden, you will see Ah, focus in the Ownby. If she's confirmed on things like climate change healthcare on you on sort of Not shying away again from running budget deficits. Tosto growth, which is you know a real, I think departure from what many progressives thought they might be getting if I hadn't had appointed someone who was more of a moderate deficit, longer term deficit Hawk Democrat to that position. And Jim. What about with regard to Senate confirmation? These three positions we've been talking about all require Senate confirmation. What is expected for each one of them for yelling for rouse and for Tanda. Well, I think Janet Yellen appears likely to be confirmed. Based on the comments that we've seen in the last 24 hours from Republican senators. She's someone who has been confirmed by the Senate before. So is this is the arrest who I think is like that he converted also in less Republicans find some things in her academic work that they really object to Neera Tanden again as a more political player and someone who's Twitter feed has really offended. A lot of Republican senators may face more opposition and that was signaled by Republican senators in the last day that they don't like that she has taken after Republicans in public comments and so that that maybe get hard for them to confirm her. A lot will depend on whether Democrats control the senator Republicans do after the runoff elections that Georgia in January. And one other thing, Jim. I mean, people look to see the differences between this team and the Trump economic team. Pretty significant difference. Sure, there's just a big difference in how they approach the economy. The Trump team came in with a real focus on how do they sperm or business investment of the economy? How can they do more by taking away regulations by cutting taxes to make businesses happier and get them to spend more money on investments of this team is much more focused on workers. How do they support workers? How do they change regulations or even bolster them? To make it easier for people to work and to make that work pay off with higher wages, so it's just completely different angle at looking at the economy and very different policies that will result Him.

"Come in. we'll see you know. I think that there's a lot of things that can happen. Do you wanna talk about the affordable character minute. Yeah let's do it. Because i think that's pretty typical. A lot could happen within that decision. So we know that amy. Conybeare barrett has been critical of justice roberts decision to uphold the affordable care act. And so there's reason to believe would ruled change it or got it in some way. We know that a k. I should say there's a case coming within a week that too challenging the legitimacy of the affordable character what but what the outcome could be is there many varying versions of it. They could simply say that the way it's paid for now is not legal and you have to find a new pay for and if that outcome congress could fix that and there's reasonably both sides would want to because like massive chaos if not who knows they could also just take out the pay four and pre existing conditions coverage. They could take out. That and expanded medicare in any of those scenarios. You kind of end up in this space where you have to seek can the state step in and provide some of that that requires money. The thing states don't have that goes to. Can we get a stimulus from congress to fund the states. It's kind of a mess ramp and we just don't have visibility into a mess in which particular way until we see their decision. One thing that's worth keeping in mind is when they issue a decision they can also say. This goes into effect at x. Date and so it could be. This goes into effect in five years right or in a year so that it gives everybody a minute to find out to figure out a plan b. ram that seems the most humane. Are there any really acute questions that are you're getting flooded with the biggest question i get is can the president's. Stop the vote counting. Can the supreme court do that. And what room often and the thing that's base is. There's no mechanism for the president to stay. Stop counting votes. Everything is on the merits of where you want an where you see an issue. They have to be litigated up from the states in very take yer to how the votes are counted in that county. You're in that state and so far. The supreme court has been really clear that they're going to send everything back to state level decision makers to decide and that they really don't wanna be in the middle of adjudicating election right so so badged up to pennsylvania cetera correct. That's to date. That's how they ruled. Pennsylvania decides wisconsin decides michigan etc now with justice barrett on the court. The calculus could change but the president still would have to bring a substantive claim and the one. That's he's brought so far which has stopped. Counting the ballots in pennsylvania is like flatly contradicted by law. You up counting ballots that come in lawfully on time period ripe. There's no crime at this point. There's nothing there's an. There are no grounds for him to try.

So i think i think there's an appetite and we're going to only see more of unique voice says who are doing independent media in the digital space. My dream is to find an umbrella for a lot of voices where you know you put together like a group of people. Who are you know all doing what i do. And you know you can come to us to you know help with decisions in all these categories right. Yeah and i do think that the future is sort of following instead of you know. The news brands you but news personalities a little bit that you trust and then the people they trust and they refer you to totally and i think that you know what you do which is not the format of of cable news and it certainly not the format of traditional reporting a newspapers. Where people are you know going out to multiple sources compiling story you know finding that lead etc is you're just it's it's like npr radio. It's hearing the experts. Talk asking fantastic. Well researched questions so that the people who are consuming can feel like they're informed and they can make up their own minds. Not that you don't do analysis but it certainly feels like a far more respectable way to give people information than to sort of spin them the way that we've all become accustomed to being spun. What i say is i tried to do information. Not a panic attack so my philosophy is that part of the tv news gets ratings is by competing for your anxiety. Like how can we make the conflict in the story even more intense to trigger a fear. Response that you're addicted to watching more. And i want to revert. I want to undo that so that you don't feel that when you're coming to me and what i want to be able to do is give you enough information that you feel informed but not such a fire hose of things that you're confused about what matters i mean it's basically curation. It's kind of like here's what matters. And then here's this other stuff. Everyone else is talking about. You don't have to worry about that. That's just noise. And i think that's part of what people crave is just clarity on the things that they need to pay attention to and then permission to ignore the stories. That are getting a lot of attention but aren't worth your time and it's almost and then another thing that i think is growing in popularity is what a couple of call meta journalism which is kind of surveying the landscape and making sense of everything together in context for you You know.

Do you think that the tv news will change or do you think it will continue to become more politicised. More polarizing more dramatic as people bid for ratings. I think that tv news is is and it's going to be more so right like they're trying to get the largest share of the pie for the least amount of money and that's how we should cable news does it. So all of those things panel discussions and you know back and forth. But i think it's created this like there's this need for something else. There's an audience that i was say that wants information told differently. Yeah and i think that there's just you know opportunity i. I'll just say that. I left to do it because i just felt like. We were always chasing undecided voters who were overwhelmingly women and the attitude bezos. Like they just don't care about politics and i'd be out there talking to them like they do..

"This is a race election right. so i think that's really disheartening. And points to the fact that we have so much work to do as a country. When i think so. Many of us thought that we were making really good progress. This is certainly an emotional chuck on that. I think van jones called it. You know he was. We were hoping for a moral victory one question because i know you've spoken to a lot of republicans who have left the trump administration. Do you think that there will be relief. I know that sounds insane. Potentially but do you think that there will be relief from the surviving republican. Senators etcetera if biden wins like using. Think that they'll be a secret secret exhale. It's an interesting question. That's a really good question. Because under girding or question is the understanding that there are plenty of republicans in the senate who also can't deal trump and you know chafe. At trump ism conservatives are republicans but republicans in the style of what's traditionally been the republican party and don't like the kind of thing is doing today claiming you know stop the count and pennsylvania for no reason right. The thing is under other circumstances there would be a big sigh of relief with the outcome of this election. Means that you know this was not a repudiation of trumpism and it wasn't even it doesn't mean trump is going to be gone from washington because of what we just discussed. It looks like the senate will be a majority. Republican narrowly or a best fifty fifty for democrats at best. And that means that you know. The republicans aren't going to revert to a kind of mitt romney style republicanism. They're still in the university of they have to. You know work with the trump ace and so it's going to be a different kind of politics in washington where you're going to have senate republicans you know. My guess is trying you know resisting partly defined by resisting democrats right and you're creating a fight and then you'll have a democratic president who's going to try to pass like relief and stimulus and all these things and he needs. Compromise and biden is geared to compromise. That's how he thinks of working in washington it's his background but can he get it in this. Circumstance trump defy republican party now and after this election. That's so wild. It's true. You know and i think we have. Someone like a in on supporter going to congress. I mean what is happening. What is happening. it's truly. It's it's completely bananas and yeah i mean. I grew up in montana so i grew up in a conservative state. But nothing like this. You know it wasn't. It was nothing like this. So i don't see how we recover but i guess that's sort of the point. We're gonna have to stay on the mat to really understand what's happening and work it out and it probably will only become more polarized. I mean you look at the results at this point and it is so extreme right. It's slake the battle states the battlegrounds are battlegrounds but everything else is so wide..

"The kind of confusion that makes this protracted and potentially ugly more than other right so right now where we're hat. There is a path for biden. Assuming he wins. Arizona nevada michigan where he doesn't need pennsylvania. Correct georgia so and if he wins one of those than it does seem futile. But it's certainly you know he's trump's already declared victory etc like how and it seems like his seating. He's doing what he does. Which is seating that this is legitimate claim into the pa. You know just saying things to say things and do you think that i mean again an impossible to predict but do you feel like his the people who voted for ham. The will be unraced or do you think that the country might actually say relatively calm. Yesterday was quite calm. I think a lot of that depends on how some of the beacons of you know the leadership voices on the right respond already. Fox news has indicated that they are hewing to the numbers. In fact they are. The were the lead in calling arizona for biden and even though other news organizations have not just out of a cra- like extreme abundance of caution. And maybe some pressure. They've not called it fox today. Speaking doubled down and said we've reviewed the numbers and we stand by our call. Trump is not happy about that something like that indicates that if these other states when they come in. And if it's a biden win fox will also call it a biden win and that will go a long way to creating a uniform on set of facts that reduces the chance for you. Know the kind of unrest. You're talking about ramp. That said president ain't gonna stop. He's banging the drum and if you look at what's moving on facebook. There's plenty of confirmation in bias. There you like one of the top sites is reporting that data firm in such and such place says trump won arizona. And that's like high right. Now there's gonna be multiple conflicting information streams on this and it just depends how much runway the president can get from other republican leaders to keeping that drum in a convincing way. Yeah and you know. It's funny when you're when you're talking about the fact that it is so tight and nana bluewave i would imagine would make people feel like really trust in its legitimacy clearly if if there was something afoot which obviously there is an then mcconnell would have lost his seat and jamie harrison would have one and you know the democrats did not have an amazing night. So you'd think that that would be somehow reassuring but maybe logic just doesn't stand in these situations. Well it's hard to. I look at all the things. I still apple going on as we're speaking. Cnn has called michigan for biden so the wounds biden needs one more of nevada. Pennsylvania were georgia and he's on track to get nevada and pennsylvania. It looks like i will bring back to something you just raised. Which was you know. The senate republicans in the senate performed trump. Yeah so there is a really my. There's really strong republican turnout on election. Day there is a lot of enthusiasm to so people be going back and looking and asking what made you vote. What drew you to the polls. What were your issues ramp which is going to be fascinating fodder and then depending on sort of what ultimately how it lands it does seem like it's essentially..

"That's taken off and you know the democrats aren't in it right and i've heard to the not necessarily conflicting things but that biden is going to eat this out sort of on by getting more white vote and then similarly i think you know every black woman i know feels wildly betrayed by white women and of course the exit polls are going to skew more republican because more republicans voted person right now. I think it's fifty. Five percent of white women voted for trump. Where do you think that that will ultimately land. This is something. I've learned since i was a baby reporter. I don't trust exit polls have had so many experiences where our entire coverage has been shaped by exit polls finding in two thousand four. It was about how it was morality. Values issues drove the electorate. And that reshaped how we covered everything. And then that cycled out into people's perceptions of the power of event locals and other things and then it turns out that they questioned whether the exit polls were accurate. I you know the exits. Also show that john kerry was gonna win back in the day like i just think we have to actually get the data before we jump to their so. I'm going to hold our horses on that. I will say that you know one of the things we have to be nuanced about is it's sort of like share of electorate. How much of the share of electorate was this latino because an absolute numbers. There was high turnout. It's not what was expected or projected and were in the middle of counting. Still so i think it's too early to make conclusions that are going to get people upset. So little patience on this one is what i'd Devise so clearly. Trump is already challenging the results which aren't even in pennsylvania but and there will be in his sounds like challenging in wisconsin etcetera. How long do you expect. It will take before this all shakes out or do you use it. Seems like biden has a path to sort of put this away and maybe have a cherry on top. Do you think it'll be really protracted me sort of set the stage for where we are right now. What i think is yeah And then a longer term view from there and this is just seen setting for anybody listening at any time. so when we're talking biden has one wisconsin. Michigan is outstanding but looks to be a biden win by the end of the day. When we're talking now it looks like nevada will be a biden win by the day after this conversation and then they're outstanding question is will biden get pennsylvania by the end of the week democrats and data analysts say yes because the outstanding vote is democratic areas. So we're looking at the potential for biden to have won all the sort of blue wall states the midwest states the lost in the hillary year but have one traditionally and that he would quote rebuilt that wall. And you know a state like arizona. Might be you know questioned but he will have had enough of a win in enough places to get over to seventy by. The question is trump is coming in challenging ballots in one state he saying. Stop counting the ballots in another state. He's gonna say counting more ballots. The only consistently rationale is count. Where i one stop right. You know you're out more where i didn't and you know yet it and i really think it depends. How many states biden wins. And what's the margin of victory enough states by enough these lawsuits are going to start to sound like Noise and won't get much traction. If it's close enough in some states that could be decisive where it flipping. It could give trump a win. That's when these lawsuits. Could you know really create..

"Let's get to my chat with jessica yellen. I know you've been warning this that this wasn't going to be a decisive election night. Victory or even the day before. But i still feel i mean clearly. I live in los angeles like you. People who listened to the podcast know that. I'm quite progressive and still shocked. I mean i. I like so many other repudiation trump and some sort of blue wave and we. We didn't see that. Are you surprised. I'm surprised by a few places and how often it was with the polling in the analysis. I'm surprised by a few demographic groups in the way they went. I mean the thing is is that every. Don't blame yourself for expecting something different. You know 'c warned that this current outcome could happen but the numbers also suggested that it could have been a clear victory for biden and that it could have been bluewave and the outcome wasn't even close so there's a lot of head scratching today. Certainly i mean it's it's sort of goes to this idea. I think that either are pulling pulling is no longer a science and is just anyone's best guess or that people aren't on. What do you think is happening. I guess we won't really know for a while. But why do you think that we're so office of the people. Don't want to admit that there. I know i've heard you ask so. Many people are are people silent quiet trump supporters. But what do you think. What do you think's happening heart of the model for predicting what an election outcome will be is not just how much support each candidate has but whose supporters actually come out and vote and that's really hard to account for and to understand in the time of covid when people are scared to wait in line and when absentee and mail in ballots are frankly more confusing and some are stuck in the mail. It's hard to know who's votes will actually get in the end. And part of the analysis will be around which groups were energized to turn out in the end and heart of that is like the really you know nuts and bolts stuff of politics. Like trump had door knockers out there longer. Coming to your door saying here's your polling place you need to know i'll be back. Let me help you. That makes a difference. I also think we can talk about this another time or not but that the facebook factor is mega. And there's a lot of people who are getting disinformation on facebook for five years from the trump team backed by russia and not that the trump team is entirely backed by russia. The disinformation is you know. And and that really sways people in ways. They're invisible to a lot of the traditional measures we use in politics right and then you have to assume that there's just so much confirmation bias happening and that people you know..

Unemployment Claims Rise as Job Rebound Loses Momentum
"Ativan, economist with Bloomberg Economics landed good to talk to you. Ah, Prior to the pandemic, President Trump emphasized the solid job gains experienced under his presidency. Of the unemployment rate in February that matched a 50 year low. We'll covert and the lockdowns obviously upended everything. And in the swing states, the jobs picture may ultimately decide the November 3rd election. What What are you expecting to see in this report will be the last report before the election day, so A crucial report, obviously, and we may still see a small gain. But it's pretty obvious that gains in terms of perils have been slowing in recent months, so I think what is it? What will be even more important is the jobs report off? At the state level that is coming out on the job between us. There's a lot of people that are coming back to work just simply because they lost doubles benefits at the end of July, when that program expired. So then I think, ah lot of people are losing jobs. And those losses are not directly related to the dynamic itself. Those job losses are happening because of the weakness in the economy. Because certain companies three open, but they don't need of many workers anymore because they simply on not sure if they're good service along the needed. So I think we're entering in a more ah, like traditional recessionary dynamic, even though the recession is over the recovery still very slow, and I think the labor market will lack an improvement in economic growth going forward. You've mentioned the benefits remind everybody when those benefits for people expire. So usually regular state benefits lust for 26 weeks. And Thiss Week. This week marks 26 weeks seems a lot of people started getting unemployment benefits in the midst off the condemning back in March in April, so a lot of people will simply exhausts regular unemployment benefits, and it's already happening. So they will have Teo get unpleasant benefits under federally funded special programs, and that will give them an extra 13 weeks. But what is happening right now? Is that a lot of people moving from regular being regularly unemployed into long term unemployment status? And that has its own, you know, but the point because When you're along someone employed, you start to lose skills if it makes it much harder to get a job. These were the issues that the former Fed chair Janet Yellin had to face in the previous extension. I think Jay Powell will face them, too. In this recovery. Do we get a good handle on just whose permanently unemployed At this point? I think the services sector is the really suffering much. One than goods producing sector. We saw a very sharp rebound in the manufacturing sector things getting back to normal simply because this is such a tremendous the lack off inventory, so they just need to catch up. At the same time in services. People are very slow to to get back to work because a lot of places are still closed. Oh, have limited capacity, things like rest, Strong said. People, obviously not traveling as much as they used to. So this is sector where we will see Ah lot of weakness going forward, and until we get a vaccine or an effective treatment for 19 will probably not going to see Jobs or the level of acidity going back to pre crisis levels. And how does seasonality fit into all this? If it does, so, we're entering a very interesting period in terms ofthe seasonality, so The holiday season is right around the corner, and that would police don't don't remind me. Yes. Yeah, Get you leased the ready. Okay, So I think that it's very important to look at this effective because During September October. Many companies, usually Hyatt workers right and killing the services of retail sectors, but well, they hired many people, as they usually do, though that's a big question, and I think the slow down and if the economy is telling us that that might not happen So the reported data will be very difficult to show strong increases in the next couple of months. I think that the reported data will be generated. Relative to regular patterns. So we already saw that in the retail sales report, elitist one and I think going forward. Carol's report claims jobless claims reports and probably also retail sales with what will show something claims.

"But that's the whole point of this country. That's all I go by the First Amendment. Yeah you can't do that in Iran so in Iran you would get in a lot of trouble if he did something political. Remember when we went to the Middle East touring. I don't think you were with when I went to Dubai and our friend In comedian. I'm and I'm Ed. Got In trouble for making fun of a mosque. Yes religious stuff right so so politically. The people are suffering economically now because of sanctions are getting more and more and that's one of the problems with the strategy that the trump administration has taken. which is they say? We are going to basically sanction you until you say mercy so economically the people are some people and then also Socially there something that you can't go there's no alcohol there's no you can't go out and party. Whatever so? The people of Iran are few or their curfews when there's when there's protests and stuff but I'm saying in general listen. In general the people of Iran are very educated people. I mean a lot of of Iranians. Our education is very big in our culture. So when you go I had a friend who was somehow involved with Stanford he used to say before or this travel ban happened that the the highest percentage of international students would go to Stanford University to study electrical engineering. Get their PhD's were coming. From Iran Ron so Iran has all this potential. They have a young. They have a young Population that wants to be modernized nowadays might my hope in terms of have any change in the future and Iran his based on just the Internet the fact that people in Iran can see everyone else around the world living their lives and taking Dick Pics. But let's talk about the Internet. Getting shutdown yes. So there's a rewind on this I mean that's my worst fear in life I can't get online. I mean this is literally humor miserable. I draw the line. During the Arab spring it was spreading across the region all this these protests for freedom and there was a massive movement in a protest in Iran. And you remember number there. Was this woman though. There was a protest that you're talking about the the Green Movement in two thousand nine before the Arab spring. He said the Arab spring every spring was in twenty eleven with the Arab countries but in two thousand and nine in the green movement was when the first massive protests happened. Is that when the woman got. Yes Oh oh the that might have been. I'm talking about. I'm talking about when Neta Sultani was killed in Iran. Not You're not talking about that one are you. I think there was a moment. There was a moment when and we were waiting for Barack Obama to intervene exact so that was so that was so in two thousand and nine what happened was the elections with at Medina Jawed. So there's an election in Iran and the then president if you remember how Medina jet. He's the one who was saying. The Holocaust never happened. He was saying there's no gays in Iran. He's a guy who was all he was. It's kind of like our our Iranian George Bush now Donald Trump saying stupid shit and so in two thousand and nine and coulter are in colder and so so when when when when the when the elections happened he won overwhelmingly and the people of Iran poured into the streets saying that there has been electoral electoral law. And so when when they're pouring in the street doing these peaceful protests it was called the green movement and millions of Iranians are marching in the street and is an Iranian American. I was excited. 'cause I was going. Oh my God for the first time you you were saying. Americans are going to Iran's in the news and they are Attractive young people protesting. They're going to realize that. Iran is not the same country as Iraq doc and Saudi Arabia. And there is a different country and they want democracy and then quickly. The government came in and started shooting into the protesters and they killed Neta. Ah Soltani take it from there and there was this pressure inside the US. For Barack Obama to do something for the US to take a stand. Because it's crazy. I I don't remember any of this. I do because I was covering the White House and it was an obsessing moment because it was a moment Barack Obama started his presidency going to Cairo and giving the speech saying in freedom. And we're going to be different and we're GONNA stand with the people but we're not gonNA impose our will we're going to be and this was a moment for him to do something and intervene and the administration really effectively didn't did nothing effectively and there was this growing pressure ever after that to do something to help take a stand create to defuse this decades old tension between the US and Iran and push forward and at the same time but we haven't really gotten into is the fact that Iran was developing. Its own nuclear weapons program and there was this pressure on the administration as well to intervene to stop their program because if Iran gets a nuclear bomb than this whole region agen is like a the. US can't have any control anymore. We can't get the oil. We can't keep the peace and Israel was his like beside itself self to bomb Iran basically and stop them from getting this nuclear bomb because there was this threat that Ron would actually take out. Israel is the dynamic at play and the the Obama Administration was under enormous pressure to solve this. You mentioned that Nuclear scientists were being killed. That's because Israel was doing these crazy lake take action movie interventions. Where like somebody would be a motorcycle would come along by your car? Put a piece of gum on the car and they zoom away explodes. People were like drinking their starbucks nuclear physicists. And like right. So why popping up out of the pod. No no no whipped cream for me. Thank you Miandad Carmel and then in this. It's so hard to fathom. Maybe we've just seen so many action movies. It's so hard to believe. Lebron life imitates well the Israelis as you said Israelis are in the middle there right there and if if Iran is said that our goal is to destroy you and I I think that the Iran and Israel have had this conflict forever. So they're doing things like this back and forth a lot and I remember by the way I remember this green movement moment because as we were at the it was I think I think there was a Green Party. Not Not environmental but the Green Party was a more moderate party who a lot of Iranians felt. Like wait I voted for the Green Guy and he didn't win and not only did not win but quickly put him under house arrest so that Iran is. We're and this is the listen. This is why it's so copy of because the people of Iran WanNa get rid of their government or they want more freedoms and and and then America's saying as you you're saying a lot of Murchison where we intervene somehow and I remember we were at the just for laughs festival in Chicago and I remember 'cause I hosted a show there you're on on the show. John Mullany was on the show and I remember that I would be doing the show and then I would go home and watch the protests in the streets and I was like Oh my God. What's going on and a lot of Iranians Ryan's in the West thought? This is it. It's going to change people. The the government's GonNa Fall Anne Ronnie's are going to get their freedom back and as you said I I personally Salihi understood Obama's stand there when he said I don't WanNa say anything because the problem becomes it's such a crazy chess game where because because McCain McCain at the time was criticizing Obama going we need to support these protesters and get in there. Somehow an Obama was saying well. I support the protesters than the government of Iran will quickly say see American support you. Therefore America is behind the protesters therefore these protesters should be shot. And then you've lost all. It's a very hard game to play. He did the right thing. I personally at that point. I'm very much this person who's like listen. Let's see if we can work it out diplomatically. And so to come come back and see this Iran deal that happens. We'll get to in a minute. I'm sure as we go through the chronology. I thought the Iran nuclear deal was something that could have put us on the path to who having because we tried forty years of conflict butting heads. I said let's try diplomacy for a little bit and we got it in place but then trump quickly got rid of it. And so I think Obama's policy policy to go to the diplomacy even though a lot of Iranis that I know that when I say this they criticize me. They go no this. Islamic regime doesn't understand diplomacy there. We're GONNA take all the money that would have come in with someone you can negotiate. We give them a billions of dollars. I go but the pro. I think I think the strategy would have been to do the nuclear deal get Iran into this the world economy. Yeah so that now. You have Western companies moving in Iran and saying whatever apple. Is there Microsoft. Chris soft is there whoever's there and then if they start violating people say well. Aren't you rewarding them for but but but but then we can say look you got a taste of the good stuff. Yeah if you want us to stay you better play ball if you don't play ball apples moving out Microsoft. I know that there's cost. There's time I just saw John Carey speaking again about how he said when the nuclear deal was was in in in effect there. Iran wasn't launching missiles at Saudi oilfields. We weren't in this kind of a situation. Yeah true I mean. We were so proud provocative about the way we did it the way we pulled out of it. What happened was after after Israel started started? Doing these things we taking out the taking The US is like okay. This is a little insane. Let's just do this in a way where there's not gonna be loss of life And we deployed the most effective and extreme cyber attack that had ever been done to date which is called stuxnet stuxnet and basically we gave somebody some flash drive some like unknowing dude who worked in the nuclear facility there who then walks into the secure his own after he got his starbucks right and plug it into the system and we release stuxnet into their nuclear their uranium processors and all of a the sudden they're processors for erasing uranium. which is what makes the material that can be nuclear use for nuclear bombs? They all started going off line. They were all of a sudden one after another. They're going down and Iran. I didn't know what happened. And then over time it was called the Olympic Games. It's you know there's now a book you you can read about it etc.. We basically attacked their nuclear capacity without without any loss of life and the idea was to bring her onto. It's knees simultaneously Disley impose like Hillary Clinton around the globe and got all this coalition of countries that are an unlikely bunch to agree to enact the harshest economic sanctions on Iran onto date. Basically bleed them so that not only other people feeling the pain which causes political pressure but some of the elite who love to Globe Trot- and get on private jets and like like eat the four seasons in New York and go to Saint Bards and do their thing. All of a sudden their bank accounts are frozen to and so that sucks for them and they are actually pressured to do something to us all these techniques to bring her onto its knee nonviolence. Yes and it took years and a lot of cooperation diplomacy effort and and to finally get to a place where John Kerry from the Obama Administration then secretary state goes over there and says we're going to put together a coalition of countries that include China and Russia and Germany in the UK and France. WE'RE GONNA make deal and it's going to say Iran you're gonNA lift the sanctions. You can build your economy. We can let other companies come in and start doing business s We're GONNA.

That's under trump master was basically they said. What would we care? We're supplying arms to both sides. Let them get each other. They don't care okay and to give you just the bird's eye view of this like big perspective as soon as that revolution happened. Iran said death to America and and Israel must be eliminated so they immediately become the pariah to the West and the West in alliance with Israel is poised against Iran and so that fuels are alliances in the region and how we are engaged. Yes we take. Both sides of fights were doing things behind the scenes but big picture. That's when we decide around our enemy and we're in a constant Cold War Ish with Since then and all kinds of things keep coming up. I mean one of the things that Iran I think did and now it's Kinda come back to bite this admit this regime in their ass. Is that the current Islamic Republic of Iran is is that they were like you said Israel's the enemy Israel's the enemy therefore we're going to Arm Hasbollah or Hamas whoever's fighting being against the bill is for someone who doesn't know. Can we talk about that. I mean I think what we're really what you need to understand to understand where how we got out here is. They actually grew these terrorist organizations within Iran. They decided we're not going to as a country. Fight this fight against America alone loan we're going to create and find and develop a network of powerful terrorist organizations one of which is and that will go out and create skirmishes and commit violence to advance our interests without our having our fingerprints on it. which is what they say now with the proxy the proxy oxy wars right so let defined that will similar to what what You know if if you're when when you're fighting a war with a country that can fight you the you fight right on the battlefield but when you're a country like Iran where you go. We can't take on the superpower America in a war within. Let's get our little this. Let's go into places like Hezbollah is in in Lebanon. Hamas is in is our Palestinians. They've got now. They're in Yemen there in Iraq. They have all these different groups that their funding and arming coming. And they're saying and they're saying we're going to give you money we're gonNA help you guys fight. The the the allies of our enemies in these other places is or even go after American soldiers. Some of these places and it's kind of come back to bite this current Iranian regime in the ass because a lot of Iranians now now in Iran are going with all the current sanctions. Going on. Your people are starving. But you're taking any money. You have arming these other groups. Put your money money to us. And so it's a strategy. That was working for them. And that's where the Sulejmani guy comes in. The play is that he was somebody who was Kinda supervising supervising. A lot of these proxies are and just going around and make sure ending little terrorist groups. Listen I again I will go back and say you know. Obviously obviously they're carrying out terroristic acts but just to understand an objective way. It's kind of like when the Viet Cong were jumping out of trees is like Iran is saying they're going like this is the way the only way we can fight You guys because you guys have your drones and you have your this and you have your that. You're attacking countries the way we do within. We're going to create what we call a military arm but you guys are GonNa call us terrorists okay. There's one way to look at. It is Iran among the countries in the Middle East. Iran has one of the most sophisticated organized official official militaries. And I think can we can we re this is eighty three million people. Also I think that people kind of go around right like we're so big and we're so I mean. This is a formidable country with minimum military and I was reading about how they have incredible scientists working on nuclear arms and a lot of them were assassinated. I mean this is an incredible powerful control denies organization with a real military. That's formidable and that could inflict damage where we go to war with them. Unlike other countries that are not quite as you know they buy weapon and they have this thing here and they could take one plane down. Iran could organize a response awesome They also have these proxies that they support these organizations like Hezbollah and one of the ways in which are attack on Sulejmani was shocking in different is unlike Osama bin Laden or Abu Bakar Album Dottie who ran al Qaeda and Isis respectively. They're what we call non MM state actors. They ran terrorist organizations. That didn't belong to one country. They were bands. That would move around and work in many countries too you know inflict violence and you you know. Create their advance their agenda so Amani was like the head of proper military division. He is it would. It's hard my friends and I had to be. It's like imagine if somebody suddenly executed general betray us out of nowhere at the height of his power. I mean that's that I really want to know what is the equivalent someone said it would be like taking out the head the series the head of the FBI and my pencil all in one. Sola money as I understand was both the portray us at the height of his power of this moment but also hugely really influential politically. So he wasn't just a general he also was a public figure now. And so in that way some people say it's like taking out portrayals plus the VP controversial guys. It's not like everyone loved him. We'll get into what he did. And he oversaw things that you know. He he helped grow Hezbollah which enacted terrorist violence around the region So that's why the US designated him part of a terrorist organization but we were designating Iran's official military not interest organization. It would be like North Korea saying the US military's a terrorist organization because we're enemies and I hear that Bush and Obama both passed on the idea of but knocking. Not because they didn't think he's a bad guy in like I don't care if I mean yeah you could defend him from the. US's perspective in advancing Western interests. Soleimani was the enemy me. In a way. Right he was executing a will that is at odds with American interests. They passed on taking him out because they thought that the danger of retribution was greater greater than the danger he posed alive if there's like a multidimensional chess game so so the money was a bad guy. A lot of Iranians in Iran didn't like so matter of fact there was a picture that was circulating on social media where someone had written in Persian DAMMIT GAM which means may your breath remain warm which means like right on it said dammit. GAM trump like right on trump for killing solely money so this Iranians in Iran. There's obviously Iranians who support the government. The regime name and they they thought they saw solely money as a hero. But there's also a lot of Iranians in Iran who were fed up with this regime and they were like right on. Thanks for taking this guy. out there was definitely a lot of Iranians outside of Iran. People that I know that were saying this is great that we took him out and I personally don't like solely money I was like Ah. I didn't like the guy if he had if I didn't shed a tear for the guy. However what you were saying the reason that I think that the Bush and trump Bush Obama Michigan didn't take him out was because they were worried about the repercussions because slowly money has laid so many Different tentacles around that region and I was worried. I mean I'll tell you is an Iranian American. I know lot of people were very worried. Our stomachs were turning beyond the fact that America was going to go to war. The idea was. I'm I'm going to be an Iranian American here and Iran is GonNa start hitting. I don't know what they're gonNA hit. As a matter of fact first of all there was a breath of fresh Relief when when they hit hit those bases and they said okay nobody got nobody was killed. We thought okay moving on Iran hit American basis. This was a couple of days after the Iraq as their retribution attribution for the attacks as their official retribution they bombed a bunch of Iraqi bases where. US troops were stationed. There is no loss of life on the basis although they've unless you've been I answering although right so they're both playing this game where they say. It wasn't intentional. But they have such precision guided missiles fo show was in and they're saying domestically killed eighty eighty people and internationally they didn't Because again it's the official act of Iran. What we're all poised for and waiting for is the retribution? That's it's GonNa come from Hezbollah from these proxies. Iran has history. They're a bit. You can think of it a bit. Like China where their strategic patient considered hurt and will strike at a time that is best for them and not in the heat of the moment and then I now understand the history of American intervention with Iran announcing this very deep seated did loaded. There's a lot of baggage here. Can Re rewind a little bit too about two months before this happened. I texted you at two. Am I I texted Jessica to am. Because I have this. There's this you know texting thing. Now where you can text people and I give out my phone number and you can text me. And it's you know mostly for touring and engaging gauging with your fans and all that and I'm looking at it and Between the DICK PIC some getting I. I get a bunch of people saying I'm in Iran and the WIFI is down and people are being shot in the streets and they sent me videos of people getting shot in the streets protesters getting shot in the streets and they said will you please post this and I texted you in a complete panic because I was like. I'm not a journalist. I don't know what this is and I posted to them because I was just I. My heart just broke and then after the factors these real what if I. I'm not a journalist. I'm way over my head but just I ended up posting any way and a lot of people ended up texting me me but can you talk about the Wifi going down so we can just do this in a time line of how can I tell you about that protest and then the larger picture so the protests were Romanians who are fed up with the God awful economic conditions. They're living under their economy is being suffocated. I will say Silliman's could force thing that he ran within the military was in part responsible for the killing of their own people just to this is not a man was a totally popular Ron again. If the religious right took over and they started implementing. Lots of you know I was talking to. There's an analyst curry module poor you know who he is criticized reporters at analysts. He's really really good on your podcast. Who's on my practice? Yeah so he. He made a good point. He said you know usually totalitarian states are totalitarian in in one form or another they're either socially totalitarian are economically totalitarian or or or they have You know wh whatever it is or or politically totalitarian so he says for example in China you know politically totalitarian but you can make money or you know some people can You can and drink. There's a lot of social stuff that you do. He said Iran right now. This remarry Appel Mary pillow run Iran. The the the leadership there you know when when when the revolution I happen every thought. Oh wow I mean it was it was sold to the people as you know the Shaw and his cronies have been stealing the riches of this land forever. We're going to redistribute those riches and not only that not happen but it got darker darker and darker and so now the people there are living in with. There's no political freedoms so you could be arrested for all kinds of you if you win. Arrested for protesting represented one of the pisses me off when I when I do trump jokes in on stage and some Americans get upset. You can make fun of our president..
"yellin" Discussed on Good For You
"In this crazy this is our first bonus episode of good for you. Yeah this is like we're calling emergency episode with the two smartest people I know to me. I'm an expert on your aunt but that's not really I mean. I'm an expert among Monk Commute comedians expert on the most educated of the comedians about Iran. It's good niche to have one. Yeah exactly I am. Lucky enough to be friends with Jessica Yellen. Who is the only person I trust in news? That's so naive. I can't awful dark I discovered you around the last election. A lot of people I think were so sick of being yelled at and having their newsbeat newsbeat subjective and opinionated and everything kind of being spend that. Everyone's like you just gotTa Follow Jessica. You were doing these instagram's stories where you're delivered the news and a very clear non-emotional who knew the woman was going to be the least emotional people in news clearly in a way where I was like. Okay I can talk about this at a dinner party ready. She just said it in a way and so I just plagiarized you amazing two years and now everyone thinks I know what I'm talking about good. That's the goal. May everybody's smart so you can talk about the information and make decisions so so Jessica. Most people know She was a White House correspondent for CNN. For how long Well I covered the White House for about four and a half years and covered. UH-HUH BA chief. White House correspondent under Obama and covered the Bush White House. Before that right I covered All of DC for ten years Capitol Hill domestic politics. You name it. Everything awful happening happening. I was there and now she's here. This yes and she has book out. It's called savage news. Get it follow her on instagram. It's just Jessica Yelling and The the Hashtag is news not noise which I love. I know I've I'm obsessed with you. It's awesome I mean my whole theory is that we're so drowning in noise. We don't know what really matters is and how to take it in and so if you can just pinpoint the clearest information that will make your life better That'll make a difference. I just shut down when I watched the news and I feel like you have to watch five different network's five different articles. The truth is somewhere in between you know I feel like I'm getting a lot of opinions and I and I don't I just want fact there's so much outrage also it gets exhausting Austin and there's so much click bait. I mean I understand that now news. Networks are businesses at this point. And they want you to click on the thing they want you to keep watching and I. It's so crazy to me that that you know. CNN on all these networks are supposed to be neutral. They have these opening graphics with an American flag waving and like an eagle flies in. Here's new on CNN. It's always breaking news and I'm like bristles sitting there with breaking news for the past twenty years not breaking ever but it looks like a Michael Bay movie at it. Looks like an action Shen movie. WWF like in this. Coroner totally Bernice at this summer. The news there's no longer you know I think I heard I don't know who was one of these politicians. Maybe it was Obama Biden. Somebody was saying how there was a time when we agreed on the facts. Oh Yeah and we no longer do as as you said left right what side. You're listening to you're GONNA get a totally different spin on it. I said about Jessica was because I was talking about you To people and tell them to follow you and I found myself what nights someone no but like her facts are true. True facts like if you want to get the true facts. Go to her. I think the difference is do give people context because sometimes you get these facts air bombed on you and you don't know what to do with it like tons of people are protesting in Hong Kong. Okay if I live in the middle of America why does that matter to me really right and to give people. Larger context makes such a difference. And that's what we miss a lot of time and I think so. Many news organizations have baggage with Donald trump that even delivering news ab- There's sort of rolling their eyes at him and they're sort of throwing jabs at him which it just feels very performance performance and emotional and biased. Also as you guys know being in this is that whether you're comedian or were whether in the news when we're when you're delivering it or you're in a panel. It's quick talking jumping in got to be quick. It's hard to get deep dive. That's why show like let's say John. Oliver show is great to watch. Because you really deep dive or sometimes sometimes I watch Rachel maddow and I feel like I'm watching a lesson to political science class because I'm GonNa oh she's dive in deep and you get what you just said which is context which is something that for me. It bothers me when I hear for example being iranian-american the whole Iran thing and and You know trump saying we took solely Monte out. He was a terrorist. This at the other and then I'm listening to Howard. Stern and stern has on I. He has on one guy who had served in the military who's got the context and he says brother context then they bring on sow who supposedly doesn't know much at all and he's just going. Yeah we we got a terrorist and you know and I'm thinking maybe they'll just let's get another another guy will come in. Who's going to be more reasonable and stern was like what are you talking about? This was a general military. He wasn't a tear a member of a terrorist organization. Yes America had called it a territory position but still it's an actual military so we just saying having some context as to WHO and what we don't have a lot of that. This is how little I know about the situation is. I need context for the context. Just like I need. I need to get even more granular. Which is why I wanted wanted to do this? PODCAST With the smartest people I know about this situation because I'm having a really hard time understanding the situation and I want to just get super granular Mueller About it and I want to just create a safe space to ask very stupid question thing. I'M GONNA ask very stupid questions because I think a a lot of people are afraid to be embarrassed. A lot of people are afraid to not know you know and I think there's a lot of times around like watching the news and I'm like okay. I need a basic understanding of that. I don't even know what that is like. I can't even understand understand what's going on. I think a lot of people are very busy. People have jobs. They don't have time to constantly be educating themselves about this so I just want to get right into it first question. How do you pronounce? Iran is that Iran Iran. I always say like imagine you. It's you know just the letter e and then a guy named Ron Iran. That's it got an end to me is an Iranian American. I was born in Iran. I grew up in America. Iran is like fingernails on a chalkboard chalkboard. Like don't do whenever people especially when when leaders senators presidents anybody Iran or or even when Bush was when we were going to war with Iraq and he say Iraq Iraq. It's Iran e cement cement crown. They on America. I don't like America to me. It just sounds like I you know again. I grew up in America and and I'm pretty good with like when I learn a foreign language. I'm pretty good with getting close to that accent but my American friends have horrible accent. So you know tell Oh yes so the span is like Oh yeah yeah. Stop Stop Iran just like Iran. And we may I ask one. How do you say Sulejmani so so you you got you got you? It's just Sulaiman Sulejmani. Embarrassment Sola money because Sola Monday money again. What's funny to me is again as a comedian? I'm looking for some comedy in this tragedy that's happened With war and then the airplane being shot down and stuff but I go was communist so last night I remember. I was watching I think it was John. Kerry was on Lawrence O'Donnell and a couple of times as they were talking about the money they call them Salami and and I was like I was saying I was thinking of Middle Easterner. It's Nice it's entertaining to US watching you guys struggle with our fall. Well I think I think that there is a big misunderstanding and or just lack of information ignorance Of A lot of people some of them in this room that hosts this podcast around that region. In general I was talking to someone the other night. But we've been at war with them since the ninety s like Desert Storm and I was like no. That's a different country you know. Can you just give us a little bit of context of our history with this region. In general okay. Well I'll say that the CIA the first time the CIA took out a created. Coup in another country was nineteen fifty three in Iran so our back and forth with them goes back a long long time they had a sean power who's like a monarch mark and there was someone else coming up who was trying to take money and oil away from the West and the CIS and we're in having that and we intervened and uncapped down and his name was Masa deck dead. This guy was so Iran was like you said it was a a a monarchy but it also. It had a parliament so Mossad debt was the leader of the parliament. So imagine like in England right now. You've got your Prime Minister and then you've got the queen. So the Shaw was the King uh-huh and And and at the time there was actually it goes even further a lot of people I know. Watch Shahs of sunset now that idea that being a royal royal term has gotten confused. Yes Shaw's in other words for basically the king and so the shaw the the the show that was in power in the early fifties his father had had become the shaw before that and his father at coming out of World War One. I believe the western powers came together and said okay. This guy will play a ball with us. He will let us have a lot of the oil. This was the British at the time. We'll let us have the oil oil Iran. Could I think we'll think of Saudi Arabia Muslim. The oil yeah Shit Shits common when you got oil is I. I used to say it's like being a drug dealer. You've got to know when to flush it down the toilet. It's going to be coming. Yeah and so it's not just it's as Saudi Arabia Iran all these countries but the question becomes. Will they play ball with you. So the so the the Shah's father Who was the king of the time coming out of World War One played some ball with them and also was also westernising Iran somewhat then what happened was in world war? Two hundred feet about you know about this but Iranians Romanians the word. Iran comes from Arian. So we come from the caucus mountains. We are the original white people we we are originally wanted me to add for twenty three and me. Yeah Yeah So. Iranians Iran is now in America to when people go like well you know your Arab Arab were Iranian wishes different. Ethically I think the word Arab I think as Time's ends up on Era Bright Arabs Arabs are Arabs I mean and then and then ethically run INS are very sensitive. It's like telling a Cuban. You'RE MEXICAN THEY LOT GULF ARABS VERSUS NON Gulf Air versus the Persian culture. But I feel like my uncle like older uncles and grandfather they say Arab. And you get like Ou blue. No well there are Arabs about Iran but Iran's Irani's aren't Arab Ronnie's come from like I said the the caucus mountains and with were Caucasian and so In the other day versions the empire was called Persia. But anyway What happens was in world war? Two the Shah's ause father who had been cooperating with the West with American the Brits and the oil and all that stuff he starts going well we are Irani. Were Arian so I kind of get. What Hitler's talking about? So the Shah's father starts kind of sympathizing with Hillary and then the West is like Whoa. What's up with that? So then they go. Okay you gotta get..
