By the way, this has been coming with the Chamber of Commerce for some time. Including Amazon, Citigroup for their calling on Congress to work with President elect Biden. To address the threat of climate change. Now that to me seems A bit more difficult. I'll tell you why. If your car company And you think climate change is so dire that it's going to be the sixth extinction level. Uh, In the service of mankind. I guess you just have to shut down the day of the manufacturing plant, right? Although here's the problem, people are still gonna buy cars. They're not gonna buy years anymore. Goodbye.

U.S. Job Gains Slow As Cases Rise

"So eric. We're in the holiday season and that's reflected in this report. Which sectors are hiring right now and which conversely are we seeing. Have some trouble spots here mean. I think this report was heavily influenced by the holiday hiring and how it's really changed. We saw that transportation and warehousing which is a good proxy for amazon and ups and and others that are getting holiday gifts to your doorstep that was responsible for almost half of the jobs at it last month but retailers which have traditionally staffed up in november decrease jobs. So we're not seeing the traditional mall hiring going onto nearly the same level but a lot of that's being replaced offset by e commerce. Hiring we have also been seeing signs of an overall slowdown in recent weeks. What are the expectations for the rest of this month and heading into two thousand twenty one. What are some of the key challenges to the recovery. Yeah i mean. One of the big challenges is frankly. The weather you know. Restaurant jobs had after being decimated. This spring had at it. One out of every three new jobs through october was a restaurant job and then last month restaurant jobs declined and i don't see real strong path. The restaurant jobs to pick up until either the spring when folks can start dining outside again or until a vaccine is widely available now. The economy is still adding jobs. The unemployment rate ticked a little bit lower. Can you tell us more about the bright spots here. yeah. I mean so continued. Progress is important right. Where i think it's good to note that we are still an economic recovery. We're not in a recession or a double dip recession. And so we should have some confidence a month ago. There was worried that this report would show decrease in jobs the fact that we still at two hundred and fifty thousand. That's typically a very healthy gain. The concern of course though is that we still have about ten million jobs to make up from the springs losses last the wall street journal's eric morath eric thanks so much for joining

"In the Brazilian Amazon has exploded under president Gyre Belson ARO. New data from the country's Space agency shows the rate of deforestation is at a 12 year high. The rain forest is home to approximately one million indigenous people. So what's the impact on on them? them? Gustavo Gustavo Fella Fella does does is is the the founder founder of of Info Info Amazonia, Amazonia, a a data data based based journalism journalism initiative. initiative. He He says says illegal illegal logging, logging, land land grabs grabs for for farming farming and and even even gold gold mining mining has been encouraged by the Bulls in our government. It's threatening indigenous people. So you have a lot of land grabbing and invasions and territories, Indigenous territories by this illegal miners, while the discourse and in both arms of course it's him. I called this is our cat miners. You know these people need to survive and just find some gold in the river is not like that. It's real mining going on were like huge, expensive machines. We've done that need for Macedonia large investigations showing that this is a big business connected to Amster done or Miami and as the pandemic evolves, and gold gets the highest price ever. There's no way of getting out of this because people won't Stop buying gold. The pressure is coming directly to the Amazon and fueling this illegal activities asked me to Boston, hers doing something no, not at all. Both. An arrow has had an ally in President Trump in terms of supporting industry over the environment, But there has been a shift. Incoming President Joe Biden has threatened economic consequences if deforestation continues. Do you think more international pressure could impact both scenarios environmental approach one way It's clear that economic pressure trade barriers my change, but at the same time you see the recent to Abidin mention, kind of energized the base of both of my arms and like that's what they want. They want to our hands on, so he creates a kind of political environment that is prone for the kind of nationalistic discourse as well. Let me ask you this. If pressure from the United States government isn't going to do the trick, then I'm wondering how concerned you are about what is happening in the Amazon and and what you see in the short term as the future there. Look, My main concern is that while this is happening, you know like this back and forth and pressure, international pressure damaged ones get more and more illegal. We know about drug trafficking. Of the FARC in Colombia has operated for years in the Amazon and now the Ambien guerilla group. Exactly so now that they're all mostly done in Colombia, all this trade routes of cocaine have moved to Brazil. The brew and the south part of Venezuela, and the war is fierce there. I don't know if you have looked at some point the home side rates of the Amazon cities right now, they just like the highest in Brazil, because all the you know like a criminal activity off the big centers of the South had moved there because they're trying to control that. And this money is linked to a lot of other illegal activities, including the four station because it's a big way of mounting your money and getting land and it's moving into illegal mining, legal mining off gold. It's huge. Now it's the highest level ever in the Amazon, all the Amazon countries, especially in south part of Venezuela. Which is controlled by the same Gabriel is that left London And so we have a regional security issue that is really building up. Most powerful A Rose is in Sao Paolo.

Business Community Mourns the Loss of Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh

"Tony shay was a rarity a business. Executive who was almost universally beloved shade died november twenty seventh at the age of forty six following injuries sustained in a house. Fire connecticut home. His death prompted outpourings of stories about shay's unusual and unusually successful approach to business for twenty years. he was. ceo zappa dot com the online shoe and clothing retailer. He let it with philosophy summed up in the two word title of his best selling book delivering happiness in two thousand ten. He told cbs news. He believed it was possible to make customers. Employees and investors happy while still turning a profit which he did in spades amazon acquired zappa's dot com in two thousand nine for one point two billion dollars shea invested in the online shoe cite zappa's dot com. Then call shoe site dot com in nineteen ninety nine a young entrepreneur. He had already founded in grown and online. Advertising site called link exchange a year earlier at the age of twenty four. He sold link exchange to microsoft for two hundred sixty five million dollars shortly after investing in shusei dot com. He became ceo and the company changed. Its name to zappa's taken from the spanish word for shoes ocado when she was initially pitched on investing in shoe site dot com. He was skeptical in nineteen ninety nine. The beginning of the internet bubble ecommerce was still young and untested. conventional wisdom. Was that you couldn't sell shoes online. Because customers were used to try on shoes before buying them but then she learned that five percent of shoe buyers already purchase shoes from catalogs. That's five percent of what was then a forty billion dollar market that persuaded shea to take a crack at online shoe sales even though he later told cbs news. I'm not a shoe person at all. Rather he would wear one pair for two years until they wore out and then by another to conquer the hurdle that customers needed to try on shoes shape pioneer to custom. We take for granted today. Zappa's would ship for free and allow returns for a year. It was not uncommon for customers to order five pairs of shoes in return for. That was okay with shay. He wanted customers for life to that end. He invested in domestic call center workforce rather than outsourcing to countries with cheaper labour famously. He empowered those customer support employees to do whatever they needed to make customers happy. There are no time limits on phone calls one. Possibly apocryphal story was that a worker stayed on the phone with one customer. For more than five hours. Critics wondered how zappa's could make money by investing so much in the people who answered the phones after all only about five percent of customers ordered on the phone the rest purchased online shea. Believe however that the phone was branding opportunity customer service by workers who bent over backwards to help them would be customers forever and of course they tell others about their experiences in addition he wanted his employees to be so happy that they would consider working at zappa's a calling not a career. He went so far as to offer to pay new employees to quit. The offer received a few weeks into a new job. Ranged from about one thousand to three thousand dollars the idea. He didn't want employees to stay if they weren't passionate about the job and the culture his quirky management technique became widely known simply as the offer growth was swift in two thousand revenues. Were about one point. Six million dollars by the time of the sale nine years later revenues had reached a billion dollars after the amazon acquisition shea. Stayed on as ceo. He retired last summer. Devoting himself to an economic development project in las vegas where he lived under shays. Leadership amazon is said to have allowed zappa's to remain as independent as an amazon acquisition. Could be recently. However the company's begun integrating it more fully offering prime rewards to zappa's customers the idea to help it. Maintain competitiveness against chains like dsw owned by conglomerate designer brands with several hundred warehouse stores. Nationwide dsw's one of the largest shoe retailers in america it consistently plies customers with loyalty discounts and coupons in an effort to get them to return to its brick and mortar stores again and again but cova closures hit designer brands. Hard in the second quarter which offers first sales fell. Almost in half third quarter results will be released next week. Twenty years after a young tony shay became convinced that yes you could sell shoes online. He turned out to be not only unconventional but prescient in a pandemic. it may be about the only place to sell them in a statement following shays death zappa. Ceo kadosh dish.

In 'Sound Of Metal,' Sudden Hearing Loss Sends A Drummer Reeling

"Santa metal stars. I'm ed as a rock drummer to lose his hearing. It is the feature debut for director darius that means it might be worthy of golden brick consideration atom. i know you've seen now Would that be accurate. Well i i do want to note that i also saw zappa and i think it's really good certainly a little bit rousing and undoubtedly competently made by alex winter so recommendation there but i also definitely got my music fix in sound of metal. Even though the music part of it isn't really what the story is about and i think we will probably or at least i will talk more as we get into the end of year award season about the performances. Here on med. But someone i had never seen on screen before. Maybe a couple credits to his name. An actor named paul racy who plays i guess kind of his his counselor and his caretaker. After a meds character. Reuben does go death and has to find a place really to be taught how to exist in a world as a deaf man and that performance by paul racy was one that i think is among my favorite of the year josh in a supporting role and sound metals. Definitely golden brick material. What i will say is it takes a really bold approach in terms of its overall artistic design and certainly in terms of its sound design which is from the very beginning it orients itself around the perspective of ahmet. There are instances of it that orient you as a viewer from sort of objective. Point of view. This is what an outsider might be experiencing or seeing play out for the most part in a way that i think for some viewers could be jarring. It was even jarring or difficult at times for me. For the most part you are always experiencing the world as resides character. Ruben experiences the world and so if you're someone who's behind a drum set and you're pounding away. While his girlfriend and collaborator as a musician is at the front of the stage. she's performing we really only hear her kind of wailing and the sound of her instrument the way he would hear it behind the drum set and similarly then as he starts to lose his hearing and then he loses it completely. There are many scenes the play out completely without sound where we only do experience it as viewers as he is in that moment and i do think it really pays off here so probably more say and there will be more to come on sound of metal here in the next month or so but for now i definitely want to recommend it. I think it's absolutely a golden brick nominee or should be on the shortlist. I know that we did that. Special here. just over thanksgiving and had a bunch of titles already we were throwing into. The mix of metal definitely belongs there. I'm curious what you and listeners. Think gets playing exclusively on amazon

"Are more dangerous than ordinary warehouses, according to the state Department of Labor and Industries. That's why Ellen I now says Amazon will have to pay more into the States Worker's comp fund. When it comes to the rate at which workers suffer injuries. There are regular warehouses. And then there are Amazon fulfillment centers in October, news site Reveal and PBS news. Our completed an Amazon injury investigation, according to Amazon's own records. Last year, it had more than 14,000 serious injuries. The rate of these injuries was nearly twice the industry average. Now the state of Washington is demanding Amazon pay 15% more. Into the state Workers Compensation fund from which injured workers are paid while they recover, according to the Seattle Times.

"In the in the audio industry. It's it's really interesting. I think the stars are perfectly aligned, you know, there's been an incredible explosion and content you want to guess how many podcasts or listen to non-apple. You know, I I feel I do not know but I'm almost intimidated to know because I'm like, where would this one stand exact so there's actually one and half million podcasts which is double what they what they had last year. Right? So this this explosion and podcasts that's on the one hand. There's not much content that's being produced and you know, how much effort and time and and and money is poured into this content and it's really good and on the other hand we're surrounding ourselves with devices that make audio consumption so easy so airpods, for example, Mark Anderson wrote let you know number one investor in the valley. He wrote last year that it's deceptive because we think it's a little thing but really it's huge. People walk around these with these things for hours. It makes audio so much more accessible and Echoes, you know, smart home devices and connected speakers. We had zero last year then we got our first off have four in the house. So what does it mean to be surrounded with all these devices and all the content that's available on the other. So I think you hit the nail on the head when you said the problem is about cutting through the noise. I think that's what keeps a lot of people a lot of marketers up at night with video with audio with a lot of formats is how do you cut through the noise for us? It's a huge opportunity. So I'm not so concerned about that because we're that in a blur that bridge between the content and the user but I guess if if I have to talk about my fear it's you know, the race to who will be the bridge who will be the enabler the name of that. So if the big guys Amazon Google Apple even Spotify take it on as a core Mission how quickly can they run to make up for the years that we already invested this in this and the other thing that keeps me up wage. Is the global recession right covid-19?

Tahinis Restaurants Puts It's Entire Cash Reserves Into Bitcoin

"I think is this. Is chris coney speaking welcome back so you guys might have seen michael salo over the news media outlets recently. The ceo micro strategy You might be familiar with this already. So i'm not going to reiterate. The whole thing is about micro strategy put in most of that corporate cash reserves into bitcoin and then they make a business case for that so yes. We all familiar with that. We were just waiting for that first. Domino to start hitting and snowballing to other companies which is now happening. I was just browsing the old twitter as i do and chemicals this tweet from to heaney's restaurants who basically have just done the same thing and they have this tweet storms. I'm going to read out to you as to why they've done. What's microsoft's don as well now to heaney's restaurants. I've never headed them. But as far as i can tell. A canadian based company is a franchise of mediterranean restaurants. So that we go thus thus who. Who's talking here. So if you want to follow these guys check the tweets out. It's at the real to heaney's which ta h- h. I n i s to heaney's the real to heaney's that's the twitter handle so check this out. This is from the first of december. This was yesterday at five pm. Uk time so it says we converted our entire reserves to bitcoin in august. Twenty twenty. and since then we've been ridiculed and cold irresponsible fools in our community our reserves in dollah. Tam's doubled since then. Here's why we continue to buy bitcoin forever. Time for a threat. So festival says right that they did in august. Why is it took me this long to hear about it. Have you guys head about this already. Let me know if you already had about this book. This is the first. I've heard about it. And that's what august. September october november four five months ago. They did this. Maybe they just didn't say anything and didn't wanna say anything but it sounds like 'cause we've been ridiculed for it. Well they must've told somebody that follow is all the clients customers knew about it but i didn't say that we got so he goes the tweet storm the first thing they say is our current macroeconomic environment implies that there's going to be a ten to fifteen percent expansion twala monetary supply every year for the next three to five years in breakfast or more assets are going to inflate. Bitcoin is digital gold. And it's going to have the highest real yield because tween You can't pick any more of it old. The other investments are overvalued trades bonds our ethical stocks are grossly valued. Gold is a shitty says shitty store value that debases by two percent a year. Gold is a twenty twenty scam. You'll see governments and institutions pumping it to dump on retail investors who are misinformed because bitcoin is a thousand times better across all aspects. All these investments have some upside and more downside. In our opinion there is no way for the average person to get an etch. Bitcoin hasn't asymmetric proposition. You can get an edge here because it has a history that scared most people away. It hasn't been embraced by all the institutional community. That's changing fast. Now if you confront run this will this shift. Then you have an edge. It's being traditionally difficult to buy an old people can't pick up the phone and buy it if you go through the trouble of how to acquire insecure. It's that will give you an edge. It has all the technology upside of apple. Google facebook and amazon combined from a decade ago. And you saw what they did over the last decade. I get tweet namik says bitcoin is the so. That's a that's a combination. The fast fiber didn't i didn't segment in the b- go twenty six as they go on. Bitcoin is the successful successful digital monetary network. If you come into it right now you'll coming in at least so you're coming in at three hundred and fifty billion market cap. And it's unstoppable at this point so it makes sense to be at the ailey to this threat. Trend bowed pony trend. No threat as the price goes up. The value of the offering goes up because liquidity is the value proposition. This is an example of something where the higher the price the mo- value. We get the more people want to have it. And the more robust against this is not true with a stock as the price of a stock goes up it dilemma from its cash flow and it's p. price-to-earnings ratio goes from twenty to forty to sixty to a hundred as with many things as the price goes up. The risk gets higher with bitcoin. As the price goes up the gets lower. It's such a simple beautifully engineered. Winder that doesn't have all the competitive risks that so many other things have because it is so very simple is just twenty one million gold coins in cyberspace which divide all of the competitors. Bitcoin is the winner. They go on by one or a fraction of one and as people adopt the network value proposition increases as the technology gets better. The value proposition increases and his people like get more productive. They'll swap more cash flows into it and the value proposition increases. They go on to say and essential banks print more money. The value proposition increases again. That's just an elevator pitch. The bitcoin rabbit hole goes a lot deeper. If you're interested dilemma. Let us know we would like to thank the cyber hornets. The honey badges the huddle as the maximalists the developers and the good economists without them we would still be in the duck. Educate yourself look is when knowledge meets opportunity also followers for some amazing content. So they we got. They don't specify in this tweet stone. Exactly how much money into has millions of dollars they put into. Bitcoin as reserves micro strategy did actually say how much they put in. All this says in the fest we is. We've converted our entire reserves to bitcoin. So you know. One hundred percent of their reserves. So i suppose that means more doesn't it. What proportion of the company's assets will preserve the cash reserves. They put into bitcoin not the amount. 'cause if micro strategy said we've bought five hundred million dollars worth of bitcoin and that was only ten or twenty percent of their their reserves. It would make me less than putting all right. So i think that's a good metric. What proportion of the companies reserves not. How much money do they invest in it. Because that's more this objective risk that the company is taking rather than the objective value placed on the stack of money right so that we got restaurants the next company to put all of the business currency reserves into bitcoin. Who's going to be next. Who do you think's going to be next. Let me know.

A Big Publishing Plot Twist: Penguin Random House to Buy Simon & Schuster for $2.2 Billion

"Biggest news to hit the publishing industry this year. Possibly several years happened last wednesday. And we're betting that you missed it after all. You were probably contemplating cooking a turkey for two and planning zoom thanksgiving dinners with relatives right so just in case here. It is again the parent company of penguin random house's buying simon and schuster for two billion dollars penguin random house or pr h has already america's largest book publisher according to the new york times. Should the acquisition go through and there are some caveats which will get to pr. H will be. The industry's first mega publisher. The times claims. Let's delve into this just a little bit as we've talked about here before simon and shuster is among the oldest of today's big five publishing houses and one of the most distinguished dick simon and schuster founded the company in nineteen twenty four. The partners first product was hardly a literary masterpiece. It was a book of crossword puzzles. And according to simon and schuster's corporate historian it was a runaway bestseller today. Almost one hundred years. After the lowly crossword puzzle got the entrepreneurial venture off the ground simon and schuster or s operates in a different stratosphere. Today it is america's third largest publisher over the years it's published scads of famous even legendary authors including ernest hemingway and f scott fitzgerald also political figures from both sides of the aisle including jimmy carter hillary clinton and donald trump and contemporary authors. Like bob woodward stephen king and anti prue as well as judy blume s prints and authors have won fifty seven pulitzer prizes and innumerable other literary awards including several caldecott medals one of the highest honors given to children's books the company now sells about two thousand titles annually all told s and s takes in close to nine hundred million dollars a year but early this year. Parent company viacom. Cbs decided to go all in on streaming video in sports looking to cut close to a billion dollars in operating expenses ceo. Bob bakish announced that s wasn't what he called a core asset hence the sale in march the rumored price for us and s was one point two billion dollars a bidding. Were hike the final price to two point. Two billion dollars among other contenders america's second largest publisher harpercollins also vivendi. A french company. That owns a stake in. American publisher has yet and rupert murdoch's news corp clearly penguin random house's parent german media giant bertelsmann was willing to pay top dollar for s and s one reason in addition to the competition between publishers for blockbuster bestsellers the big five face. A formidable rival in certain amazon and when it comes to fighting off amazon size matters since two thousand nine amazon has been a publisher. Not just the world's largest both retailer today. It has sixteen imprints that publish everything from thrillers. To romance novels it signs. Top selling authors like dean koontz patricia. Cornwell taking them and their millions of sales away from traditional publishers in two thousand seventeen amazon published more than twelve hundred titles according to the wall street journal if those numbers have grown in the last three years amazon could well already rival simon and schuster for the volume of new works. It's producing what makes amazon such a tough competitor is a book publisher of course is it status as a bookseller. Moreover it has a number of marketing weapons that traditional publishers. Do not such as the ability to easily promote low priced e books to millions of amazon prime members and kindle owners. The wall street journal reports that along with oodles of cash to lure away big name authors as the largest american publisher penguin. Random house has the clout and logistical network to compete successfully with amazon. The merged company would have annual revenues of three billion dollars according to book industry bible publishers. Weekly but we should note here. The acquisition faces obstacles worthy of an epic novel authors and agents represented by the authors guild. Say such a deal will make it even harder for new authors and so called mid list writers to get published meaning. If you haven't written a blockbuster or a solid backlist title your chances to get published and your earnings could shrink. Pr h says. Simon and schuster will remain editorially independent and both publishing houses say they remain devoted to readers and writers still publishers weekly reports that by blending s. npr h german-owned. Bertelsmann would own about one third of the us book market. That's the number that could trigger antitrust. Investigators to closely scrutinize the deal. According to the new york times but those market share numbers are in dispute in both directions. The authors guild which causes tie up says a combined. Pr h. s. would wind up publishing half of all trade books in the us. Meaning not textbooks penguin. Random house's leadership argues not true and says future market share would be less than twenty percent and that an antitrust investigation is unlikely what happens next will likely hinge on which of these numbers comes closest to reality

Lucia Lucas: Cracking Operas Trans Glass Ceiling

"Begin with. I want to go back to when you were first coming out. Was there any president or other openly trans opera singers that you could look at to see how being out might potentially affect your career. No actually this is sort of been a rule book that i've written myself over the last six years. Because there wasn't there was some professional singers who previously have careers. Who then transitioned so. There was a little bit of an idea what might happen with my voice which is not much and there was a little bit of an idea. About how the business might treat somebody. Who is trans like examples of it but nobody who was on the stage performing. It was just sort of a. How does this all work. So i had to decide how i was going to handle each individual thing and hopefully it was in a good way. Oh in so in essence to use your word. You're like writing the rule book for every transfer. Sinha fall you. I mean it's my real book for me. But i do hope that if i'm doing my best that at least administration in different opera houses can see that. It's possible that it's possible that this private thing this this very thing very specific to somebody can exist only in their personal life and it doesn't need to exist on stage. The opera doesn't need to be reworked. Nothing needs to happen. You can glue a beard on. And i'll go out there and i'll sang an it's fine and i don't care and i just want to keep doing my job you know if i'm missing. Baritone i just wanna go sing baritone really well and so now you have been. Al came out officially in two thousand fourteen. How welcoming have you found the opera world. Well the public in opera houses. They're typically a little bit more conservative than the people who are performing. But i will have to say that they're way more understanding and willing to at least inquire instead of shutting down somebody who is not someone who they're used to seeing on stage. We're seeing more and more start to break down. I think that that comes with so many tv studios. That are existing. Now there's more tv studios than have ever existed. You know we have. We have netflix amazon. We have who. We have apple with their own series. You don't have to make you know forty million or opening weekend. You're not playing to that many people in a theater. You can play to niche audiences like everybody doesn't have to like it and it setup that we ended and it's beautiful that way we can tell specialty stores to specialty people. You know one. Massive difference between hollywood and opera in correct me if i'm wrong but you have almost only played male roles and that is how your career is likely to continue. Is that right. Yes the majority of characters that i play in my mainstream main stage career are men specifically angry men between the age of thirty five and fifty. That's that's my talk. So the focus. What type of voice you have. And so because of the characteristics of your voice of the timbre and like the notes you are in that category almost only for opera. Yeah i mean unless a new composer wants to right something else which is actually the case with tobias picker. She's writing the danish girl for me. You know that's kinda something special and that's because the composer said hey. I would like to do this for you

"Your products for prime okay? They also handle customer service shipping and then increasingly recently to get discovered on Amazon. You need to advertise your products sponsored products at the top of the list right correct. That's sort of the main advertising product. There are or some others as well. Some call it a tax to sell on Amazon that you now need to advertise And so some sellers say now forfeit forfeit anywhere from thirty five to fifty percent of a product sale to Amazon. That seems like a huge cut. How does that affect prices for customers? There is an argument from some sellers that these fees have gotten so high and take up so much of a total product price that it does actually we to higher prices for consumers how that works is some say. I'm giving fifty percent of my sale. Say to Amazon essentially When you factor in all these if I didn't have to do that if I sold this on my own website I could actually lower? These prices defy solbes elsewhere. The problem with that is Amazon often. Penalizes sellers cellars. If they sell the same product cheaper on another site so in the past they would say. You just can't do that. There was a policy that you couldn't do that so it has to be the same price as a website correct. There are some regulatory attention and put on that in the last year and so on change the policy but now they will sometimes just hide the product. If you're doing that this is like a shadow ban. I think they call it. Suppressing the listing and their argument is. LISTEN WE WANNA offer our customers. The Best Shaw best prices best shopping experience and this is not the. If it's not the best experienced best price. Why should we show it? That's one example of how awesome sellers say Amazon artificially inflates prices. What is your take on round up this idea that there is sort of this? This small Little Network of Prep Centers in Montana in a in a small town in Montana. How did you receive sort of that information? So the details were surprising where it was who the people were. But what wasn't surprising. was that if there was a sort of business opportunity. That seems a bit bizarre that I had never heard of coming out of the Amazon ecosystem because there there are all these mini ecosystems that have branched out from the Amazon selling experience. That just because I've spent six years you know trying to untangle sort of third-party experienced so it is this wild west nature of the marketplace that leads to a one hand and scams schemes and con artists. On the other hand you know would jim it. Business opportunities that seem to sprout overnight overnight so it sounds from what you're saying that these opportunities like the peppers actually have been pretty essential to building up Amazon's business absolutely really without them we we would not be talking about the dominant online retailer at that.

"Common term is trump of the tropics that he uses a label. He's quasi embraced. It's it's like i'd say like sixty percent accurate right. He says a lot of really offensive things about minority groups and women he liked rodrigo detail in the philippines once once said that he wouldn't rape a woman because she was too ugly. What makes boll scenario. Particularly threatening in the context of the amazon is that he has scaled scaled-down enforcement in part. He does this because he's aligned. Politically with the agricultural lobby there the soy industry he wants to expand beef cattle farming areas areas there and soy crop growing and so the result is you have to clear the amazon. He thinks that will make his country richer. The problem is that it is also destroying the amazon. That's exactly exactly right. The amazon not only serve a valuable function for brazil. It is a national asset for them and it's also a point of pride a lot of people even in brazilian cities talk about the amazon asana something that they are very proud of and that they value and people have fond experiences of exploring the jungle but it's also something that has an intense monetary value something that they know that has a lot of mineral resources below the ground it has oil deposits and also the wood and the land is immensely valuable. Much of brazil is forested right now. In brazil is a huge country and so for people like bolsonaro they look at that and they say this is a huge waste that we have all this massive resources and we're not exploiting it for the benefit of our people. The indigenous point there is important right because the amazon is really vital to a lot of indigenous communities and pursell and an administration. That's aligned with sort of the wealthy upper class and in some ways racialist white a lead of brazil. They don't care very much and both are has said quite offensive. Thanks about the native community. They're absolutely he has been very hostile to native groups. He has talked about wanting to civilize them. He sounds like a neocolonialist when he starts talking about the indigenous groups that live in the jungle. These groups actually do have legal protections under the law but again like with the forest itself. It's a matter of enforcing that law and increasingly the administration has has been looking the other way. There was a recent murder of a major indigenous leader and bolsonaro pretty much threw his hands up in the air and said that he wasn't certain that this was a murderer at all. This was somebody who was stabbed to death and both are also blames the current state of wildfires on ngos setting the fire right basically flag thing exactly exactly he was saying that it's these environmental groups that are mad at him for cutting their funding and support okay so then they decided to destroy the rainforest they want to protect that makes a lot of yeah okay and and he also at one point said and this is a quote. I'm going to read it <hes> as the because like i can't paraphrase it well enough as that he was asked how to deal with environmental crises and he said and it's enough to eat a little less you talk about environmental pollution. It's enough to poop every other day. That will be better for the whole world's yeah. I read that as him being a little bit. Sarcastic can tongue-in-cheek i've been it's pretty clear that he doesn't think the environment is a major concern. That's what i mean right like. It's not that it's he actually thinks that you need to poop last to save the environment meant that he's like if you care so much about the environment. Why don't you go do this. Incredibly ridiculous stupid thing that indicates that i in fact do not care about this and don't think anybody shut. That's that's exactly right all right so we're gonna take a quick break now and after that we're gonna talk about the implications of this mass clearance of the amazon and the wildfires for or climate change his whole hi daniel hi amanda we get to tell everyone about the new pod easyjet's eaters digest that is right are brand.

"Hey, that's a cool product. Maybe we should come up with our own house brand version of that. And put it into competition. Recode has a really interesting article about how retailers are starting to get tired of this. They use a company called pop sockets as an example of the problem. Pop. Sockets got tired of Amazon demanding lower prices or demanding the pop sockets spend more money on marketing in order to stay as a wholesaler to Amazon retail. So pop sockets decided to stop selling to Amazon and instead sell to a company called is serve which sold things on Amazon I serve as one of those third parties. Amazon notified pup sockets that I serve would not be allowed to sell pop socket material as a matter of policy, although unaffiliated merchants in other words. Merchants. That got a hold of pop sockets products without. Any kind of relationship with pop sockets would be that would mean that pub sockets couldn't sell their material with the manufacturer's warranty and with their own QA process. You would only be able to get their products from third party sellers who couldn't give you that stuff. This is all in advance of something called one vendor where Amazon is going to try to bring all those independent sellers in the big brands into the same back end. And some brands are being notified that they're only going to be allowed to sell to Amazon and other words, they won't be allowed to sell on Amazon marketplace where they would control the sale price run their own promotions. And more importantly, get to keep all that data. Remember, Amazon is becoming a bigger and bigger advertising revenue generator. They want that data. It's not a new policy actually, but Amazon has an enforced it always in the past. So now, they're starting to crack down there also adding to the policy that a retailer can't sell through their agents, licensees or. The other representatives in other words, they can't say, okay, we're not selling Amazon, we're just going to sell to these other people, but we're not selling on Amazon. So it essentially, essentially what happened pop sockets you either sell to us or you can't sell to anybody that sells on Amazon they have to find it some other way. Amazon often uses the state of by the way to create those house brands we were talking about earlier. So. A lot of people are attributed to the fact that senior vice president Doug Harrington who has been running the retail side of Amazon for fourteen years now is over the Amazon marketplace side of things as well. And as applying some of that retail mentality. Amazon just says we're trying to make it easy for people. It's confusing sometimes when they think they're buying from Amazon, and they're not we just want to clear up that confusion have fewer differences in price among the same thing. It's all about the user Justin that the thing is though is that. Well, I'm sure there are exceptions. But as it frequent Amazon customer, I don't care. I just want the thing. So Amazon saying, you know, we just want Sarah to be less confused about third party sellers versus Amazon products themselves kind of BS. Yes. And no there there are a couple of ways that you can deal with Amazon if you are a small of retailer like let's say a mom and pop game company that has games like the contender in action news, you would either sell directly through listing on Amazon, and then you ship the product yourself, that's one way to do it the other way to do it. If you're a little bit bigger is that you send products to Amazon's warehouse that allows you to control of the you are still getting paid from that directly. But now Amazon can offer prime shipping, or if you are a big volume player like the ones that we were talking about here. Amazon is actually buying at wholesale a large volume of that moving that into their warehouses. Then whatever they do with that is up to them and their business from there. Now what they wanna do is flat out a little bit. They wanna make it easier for..

"That will have up to four forty of these trucks so essentially these partners will employ their own drivers it's fascinating in so many different ways it's a new example of the gig economy and a lot of ways because the hallmark of that is companies don't directly employ people and that has all sorts of tax advantages and everything on along those lines for amazon but as an economic development engine as well amazon's gonna be able to point to these new companies that it's created across the country i found this whole situation fascinating it seems kind of weird like this seems like a red flag to me because why does it have to be this complicated this is going to be more complicated for customers if they have a problem with the delivery they can't just go ask amazon they have to figure out what small companies delivering it and like how they're related like it seems like there's layers of complexity that are really unnecessary that make me ask you know what's the real reason amazon did this yes i do think that one of the motivations was exactly what we were just talking about the fact that they do not have to directly employ these large fleets of delivery drivers and yet it's still under their brand and they still have a ten general involvement in delivery in other words they have this relationship with this other company that they've essentially created or helped to create from scratch now i actually think that there will be more of a common infrastructure that this is it's very clear that this is a program so in terms of the customer complaints i would not be surprised those still go to amazon for example if your package doesn't get delivered from amazon through.

"Niche you could get into and if it's not the most competitive it's definitely one of the only ones it might be more competitive our skin care antiageing that kind of stuff uh it's more competitive than real estate like it is the most competitive niche and the reason i bring it up is because that's what we started with we started in weight loss with supplements specifically uh it was a brand new bland something that never existed we had to get approved on amazon to sell within the health and personal care category it was a process we had to go through it also cost three thousand dollars it you have to pay amazon just to be able to sell so when i say we took the path of least resistance are really isn't hype it's the truth and we got into like i said a very competitive niche the most people would say is saturated and in fact when mike and i we're speaking with people that are close to us and and getting our advice and kinda sharing what we were doing on our business everyone was telling us that we're making a big mistake to get in the weight loss to start selling supplements 'cause we're competing against all these big brands and no one knows who we are and and all this kind of stuff and then we went on to do you know ninety grand that our first a sixty days i think it was and then we did or was no it was sixty grand in our first ninety days but that in the next nine months we did over seven hundred thousand dollars in sales and the rest is history for after that so um all i would say is that you actually want to embrace competition but what you need to do is you just have to have the right expectation and have a good game plan when you're going into a niche that's competitive and so one of the things that you can do to do that is number one it's with your branding and you're packaging and how you it's all about the perception of your product and there are ways you can increase the perceived value of your product by making better images than the competition creating better packaging you add something like an eu book.
