Professor Ben Burgis on His Proposed 'Baby Steps Toward Justice' in America

"With us tonight is Ben or doctor Burgess or Ben Burgess, however you want to say it. We're going to be debating and we'll see where it leads us. Democrat socialism versus conservative populism, super thrilled, that Ben is here tonight to have this discussion. It'll start with some opening statements. And then we'll take it from there. The two minutes is yours? Doctor bridges. Thank you, mister Kirk. Thank you to town circle for setting this up. So I'm a democratic socialist because I don't think anybody deserves to have less power or dramatically worse life because of factors that are outside of their control. So that's the first part. That's the philosophical basis. Concretely, I think it's obscene. The way we have an economic system where workers at Amazon warehouses skip bathroom breaks because they're worried about falling behind in their quotas and their boss literally owns his own spaceship. Now we can argue about what a fairer society would look like. I can contrast what I would see as utopia with what you would, and I'm always up for that kind of thing. I'm sure we'll get into some of it later. But what I really like to start out with is not so much that end point as the baby steps towards justice that we could take right now. Things like raising taxes and rich people to pay for social programs that would benefit the rest of us, things like raising the minimum wage for the working poor. Things like make it easier for ordinary people to organize unions so they can have at least a little bit of a say at what happens in the workplaces where they spend half their waking lives, and I got to say, what I was confused with me about you, Charlie, is that I see you say that you're not like an old style kind of corporate Republican and the rigging Bush William F. Buckley kind of mold and certainly the politicians who seem to be most enthusiastic about people like Donald Trump or JD Vance now, make a big deal saying they're populists. They really want to help struggling people in the heartland. And if that's true, I don't really get why you don't support any of those things that I just

"And know more. And that's what I find interesting because in traditional backend computing or any kind of application development, usually you start on the cloud. And then when the costs become really big, you try to make a move there. Do we stay on cloud? Do we go back? Do we start moving to on prem? At least that's how it is in the last few years. But what I've heard and I've heard this from now, multiple people who develop AI is they actually start on prem and they're probably going to continue on prem. Is that also what you're thinking or seeing? Yes, I think data labeling and the storage of data is best done on the cloud. There's a lot of competing companies right now who want to be the holder of your images with all the annotations and it makes sense to do that on the cloud because you can then send out those tasks and have a workforce of people label all the bounding boxes you want labeled. But on the model training side, I think it's nice having an on prem computer with a bunch of GPUs because people overestimate how often you're training. You know, if you have a project, a lot of the design work data labeling is going to take the longest time. And then the final part of the project, you're going to deploy, but GPUs are useful for everything. So having something if you have a company that's big enough on premise, makes a lot of sense. Yeah, no, absolutely. The first thing when I first heard about this problem that you guys were going after, the first thing that came in my mind was Amazon go. I think for those who aren't familiar with that, it's a grocery store where you can essentially scan your phone to get in. You just walk up to something on the shelf. You pick the update item and walk out. And this all works, of course, because computer vision tracks your movement throughout the store. Do you believe Alex that the future of computer vision is going to be very similar to Amazon go? Do you think maybe not necessarily for grocery shopping, but do you think that we're going to basically live in a world where we're very free of a lot of traditional sensors or toll boots or anything that essentially, you know, requires us to be to encounter friction whenever we purchase something or whatever we go somewhere. Do you think that can happen in the next ten, 15 years? Well, I definitely think that cameras are the perfect sensor in that they have almost any you can extract almost anything you want from a camera if you work hard enough at it. The cost is it's just the perfect sensor. You can if you can see it with your eyes, a camera can tell it. The question is whether people are going to work and all these different verticals to make those cameras into useful sensors for whatever they want to do. The Amazon go thing is interesting because Amazon, you can't convert an existing store into an Amazon go store. You have to build it from the ground up. It basically Amazon decided to turn their store into a robot. And they put so many sensors on the ceiling there that there's 5 cameras per square foot. And they also have depth cameras. They're using infrared and whatever magic they're doing to find when you pick something up. I do think that cameras will be more useful in the coming year. I guess the question is how much people want cameras everywhere? Because I think there's going to be pushback from the public to add more applications that use cameras. Brain frame is targeting places where there are already cameras. And trying to just get more information out of those cameras. Yeah, it seems like there's almost this kind of push and pull. I mean, Amazon go creates an almost frictionless experience, right? You walk in, you grab and you literally go. Just like in my name. And it reduces an incredible amount of time for grocery shopping, and I'm guessing imagine if these applications were done for toll boots, you know, and imagine instead of stopping at a toll booth, you just keep going license plate readers will grab your information and there's no need for us to stop. But kind of like you mentioned it. Yeah, I could see also a future or a backlash to a lot of this with people saying, hey, you know, I don't want to be filmed that often. I don't want to be have cameras in every single square foot. Yeah, definitely. I was watching minority report the other day and the guy walked into a store and it said, hey, said his name, right? And I think nobody wants that world. It's just you don't want to be recognized wherever you go. So the question is whether regulation will be the first one to decide where does the line get drawn there? How much can you use a camera as a sensor? Because there are useful applications for cameras have sensors. Like the construction site safety is a very obvious use for that. Or just counting how many people are entering or leaving a store or reducing turnover in restaurants, or many, many places in a factory. But the question is, where is that line going to be drawn? We know that some municipalities have banned face recognition altogether for police use. So when will that hit the consumer market as well similar bands? I'm not sure. That's the question I think we're all we're all wondering is tech and privacy and kind of the shift of what's going to go where. And I think that that's also something that a lot of people share in one of the biggest concerns they have is that they're now always going to be watched. You know, previously, you know, we were always watched, but that had to be reconciled with the fact that I think someone had to look through hours and hours and hours of video, or somebody would only see this footage of something bad happened..

"I talked to the manager and the man who's like, I can't believe we didn't offer that. It's like, the simplest thing goes a long way. Okay, so I don't want to leave the culture piece until we've explored everything. What else on that front? And then we'll move into a few other areas before we wrap up. Yeah, absolutely. I would say the other piece behind Jeff's success is going back to what Zappos did so well they were customer obsessed. That's why Jeff was so fascinated with Zappos because that was his core philosophy. And Amazon is your competition is not other companies or competition is your customer. They're the people you should be scared of because they have the money you want. So everything they did at Amazon was just focused on the customers. They got Amazon Prime. I mean, at the end of the day, Amazon Prime and Jeff says this in a quota similarly. He said, we have to make Amazon Prime so good that the customer would feel crazy not to take this on. And it's 79 bucks a year. And you get unlimited today free shipping. That's nuts. If you buy a bunch of stuff, so at the time, even people at Wall Street were like, you shouldn't do that. It obviously just didn't listen. Kudos to him, credit for that. He never listens to Wall Street. That's why he's so successful. Is the reason his rationale is, well, if they buy Amazon Prime, they're just going to buy everything off Amazon. Which ended up happening for almost an entirety. The other piece that's interesting to Bezos's culture is the idea of scrappiness in the early days of Amazon. Amazon is so scrappy that people who started at the company had to build their own desks super fascinating. So it gives you that scrappy like mentality to always save costs. So because the always saved money, they can reinvest them to better customer service and get that.

"Amazon could have a hotel. I think Seth godin is his best. You know, if Nike had a hotel, we would know what would happen in that hotel. You could imagine what a Nike hotel looks like. It's the same thing with Amazon. If Amazon started a hotel tomorrow, we would probably all go. We could imagine our heads what it looks like. Like a whole foods there. And it looks amazing. So that's the key. The brand is more important. I think that played another good piece into Amazon Web Services success as well. Yeah, and the brand extends beyond one vertical that exists within this company because clearly they have their hands in so many different things. And some aren't as profitable as others. The margins just aren't there. And you think prime, yeah, I mean, made it so easy to get a package delivered to your house. And now Prime Video makes it so easy to get a movie delivered to your house. And obviously, these are just two of literally hundreds of different verticals in spaces that Amazon's in, but yet to your point, the consistent through line amongst all of these is the brand and the expectations of what you're going to get. Because you know when it's Amazon, it will be at a certain caliber that it's going to be fast. It's going to be affordable. And it's going to be Amazon. And it's going to be the known entity there is that it will always be an Amazon experience. And when it's an Amazon experience, whether that be cloud based services or shopping or entertainment, you know what you're going to get and it's you're not going to be disappointed. And if you are disappointed, they will take care of you. And so because of all those things, the brand becomes such a central component to the success of the business. And then when you operate in areas where you can have higher profit margins, and you can allow yourself to really have your fingerprint on so many different things. I don't think people even realize AWS powers almost anything and everything you could imagine. It's shocking when you look at just the reach and the scope. And so if you aren't aware, go ahead and do your own due diligence and research AWS and just see how wide and far the tentacles go. I want to double down on this culture piece. When you think about culture within the organization, clearly there's great companies like Zappos. There's southwest. There is companies that are known for building incredible culture like even a Netflix and what is it about Amazon? What are some of the things that you know aside from what you've already mentioned, having openness and other things like that?.

Organized Retail Crime (MM #3863)

"The mason minute. With Kevin mason. I've tucked on this before, but it's getting worse and worse from what I understand. Organized retail crime is on the big time uprise. In fact, Walgreens has announced they're going to close some stores in San Francisco because the crime has gotten so bad. The biggest problem of course we have number one, staffing issues. Two, with business being up and down, they don't staff them well enough when they do have the people. So number three that makes it a good time for people who are organized in their crime to come in and just start stealing things. I've seen this happen throughout the years at Walmart's where organized crime rings come in and start stealing stuff just grabbing stuff off the racks and running out the door. Now sure a lot of the drugs are locked up behind the counter, the razor blade isles, they're locked up too, but that doesn't stop people. Because what they're doing is stealing the goods and either selling it on places like Facebook marketplace or selling it on eBay or even opening up Amazon stores and reselling those kinds of things, and right now with the economy right now with the disparity that's going on in our world. We're told it could get worse for both retail and for the retail public, and that's scary.

"amazon" Discussed on Amazing FBA

"It's selling you know. Five hundred units a day. And you have this other product in there as you know. Say two thousand units now. It's not a lot of inventory. But that had set up. Product has really. It's a slow mover. It's something that you needed to to get rid of for a while instead of pulling it from amazon with a removal order which would only free at the space you could potentially drop. The cries do a coupon discount or in some other way to flash sale and quickly burn through that inventory. You know maybe reduced profit or even a loss but what it's doing is that the two thousand units that you sell through during the time of the stock out will not only gain space in your inventory in your in your inventory capacity. It'll will also increase the velocity so that your velocity won't completely crash so that the next time you're restocked limit is assessed. Its local. Make sense you get to benefit from a guest in other if you're removing because he doesn't sell once you've removed as some warehouse isn't going to get an easier to sell it. Not only you could try and sell amazon. But you're going to have to reduce the price now you've got to m. from somebody else's warehouse and seeming they actually fulfill stuff whereas well guess what you're saying. Is you gain this space. Because it's moving out the way but you actually increase in the other side of the which make sense to me. And i think you know what you're saying is is really and we talked about this and this knock-on effects being better business people are being kind of dropping ever bigger hints to the point of almost killing on bendini with with some clients with say a thousand skews whatever mostly if they're reselling other people's but some not manufacturing stuff whatever the big companies and especially most companies. It can have a lot of skews. Most of them never shift and if they do they actually sell a paper thin profit at best and they've been allowed to get away with it but it was terrible for that business anyway so i think amazon is forcing surgery. Pain which is yes. I'm doing it for their own reasons. Obviously by not not trying to be evil. But i think actually been begging people to do this anyway. Do you think is up fair or my again. This kind of exaggerated response to this. I think i think it's right. I think that not enough. People understand the inventory in the financial aspects of their business the industry a whole has grown as marketers and we as marketers focused on you know revenue a lot. You know the best.

Facebook hits pause on Instagram Kids as concern mounts over impact on youths

"Atta massery found the head of face. facebook instagram instagram. Said that we are going to pause the development of instagram for kids and why they ever started that. It's it's just indicative of not reading the room. Yeah the idea. Of course a coppa The child online protection and privacy act prevents kids companies from gathering data on kids under thirteen Which really hampers facebook so In theory fa- kids under thirteen. Can't join instagram or facebook. So they were gonna make an instagram kids for kids under thirteen. Which one can argue. I'm not gonna argue. One could argue that knowing that that's happened anyway. It's wiser to create a place that is going to be safer however what looks like instead expectation young people. And it's just. I think you know i think what facebook would do is design it so that it doesn't collect data but that's not the only hazard go ahead. I'm sorry stacey no it's not just well. They designers so they don't collect data. How can they market to the children and they really wanna make money. I mean there's a if you are a company like facebook or even koogle. There's no value in marketing to kids. Because you can't sell their information which is your business

Price Fixing (MM #3841)

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason. I remember years ago when I was living in Virginia Beach, so it would have to be high school college era, a story about some of the Chevrolet dealerships in town, price fixing. So no one dealer was cutting the other dealer's profits. What's interesting to me though is, is I've seen stories about Apple and price fixing and Amazon and Google and price fixing for all their electronic tools. But I never see anything come about because of it. If you want to buy an Amazon Alexa, if you want to buy, even an iPhone, you're basically going to pay the exact same price no matter where you shop, whether it's from the manufacturer, whether it's Walmart, whether it's Best Buy whatever it is. It's all because a price fixing. What I don't understand why they don't get in trouble for it. Got me started on this the other day, I was looking for a new seat cushion. I like the purple seat cushions and they used to have them at bed bath beyond, but they don't have them anymore. They stopped carrying them. When I went online, the only places to find them were Amazon, or purple, and it's all the same exact price. They're making it so the only way you can get it is from the manufacturer themselves. So I guess they can price fix and get away with it.

"And if people are thinking that how valid. How much should they put in that they hope for that. I mean i. I don't i don't know that i would hope for it. I mean they amazon typically. Isn't it certainly a firm needs this way. More than amazon does right. I mean there's not the other way round in. I mean the one thing that stood out to me when this news came out. I thought you know what i mean. We use amazon. Pretty good bit in our household i just had always a knew that i had always seen some type of installment plan or a way to break up payments willing. When you purchase something on amazon. I just i couldn't remember specifically what it was because i've never used it but ultimately what you know what amazon has done up to this point they offer. You can break out the purchase over six months Via your amazon prime rewards visa right and so they're amazon was offering something similar but it was through their financial product in their in their card. So i think that for for customers ultimately this is great in that it offers up one more option now it remains to be seen how utilized this option actually really is because it's worth noting i mean. This isn't just a firm break in these purchases out you just get them interest free and it depends on what you're buying who you are some of these. Some of these purchases will reflect interest And so you have to sort of wave. That with folks who you know have amazon prime rewards visa. Maybe just wanna continue to use that and get the get the points. Maybe the younger generations coming up into the world here have heavy more skeptical view of credit cards and don't want to Consistently rely on just having to open credit cards which is very understandable as well. I don't know that amazon looks at this and says wow affirm is just a company that we need in. This is going to be sort of the first step and really understanding how we can work better together to me. It feels like there would just be better opportunities for amazon to try to invest their capital. Because i mean a firm given where it is today. I mean yet made a little bit more than seven hundred fifty million dollars in the last twelve months. This is an eighteen. Plus billion dollar company in the market has bid this thing through the roof on the potential in this by now pay later space. I i don't. I don't necessarily look at a firm as an attractive acquisition targets to speak now granted after pay was acquired for around twenty nine billion dollars. Couple things there those square that was an all stock deal so cheaper currency And i think the results so he timing issue there right. I think square felt a little bit under the gun to get something going and they just. They didn't have the time to focus on building it so they decided to buy it Amazon is not really in any kind of a position where they need in a firm as a part of their business so i think ultimately the two the two parties that really win here are of course a firm all three parties really affirm affirm shareholders and consumers. Because it's it just represents one more choice which is good. The wall street.

This is four purchases of fifty dollars or more and then those customers can if they want split. Those purchases up into smaller monthly installments shares of affirm. As of this moment are up forty four percent. Today i guess my first question is is that how good this news is forty four percent or is at least some of what we're seeing i.

It's very important news. I mean this isn't something that results in immediate tangible financial impact right. I mean there is still okay. Show me that this actually is gonna work. Show me the money so to speak. But for a business in a firm which generated around seven hundred fifty million dollars essentially in revenue over the last twelve months. It's a big deal in part of the part of the concern with firming. There'd been a couple of things with a firm that if you know they've been worth worth discussing a little bit right. I mean we saw the recent acquisition with school with the square buying after pay to get that presence into the buy now pay later and that's what a firm is known for two right. Buy now pay later in.

I where you had to buy goods from the company store because that was the only store in town and they charge you a nominal like for and yeah just thought that was just an additional fee that the shack up is had to pay and advertising is just an additional fee that digital digital marketers have to pay they pay it you know they pay it to google or they pay it to facebook and one would point out that amazon's advertising business has grown much faster than facebook google because it's much more efficient. It gives you customers when they wanna buy things as opposed to when they're looking for things so you know it's both a carrot and stick. It's the best place to advertise.

Walmart. . Plus is hoping to add perks that maybe Amazon can't match. . So one of them is at launch. . Discounts on gas at one gas stations and other partnering gas stations. . It's something like no more than five cents a gallon. . But if you're someone who drives a lot shops at Walmart. . Over the course of the year maybe that makes a difference to you. .

So like spotify and the like and what you find is often when you subscribe to something, , you want to get the most out of it. . Right. . So what does that mean for Amazon Amazon that means prime customers spend more and shop more frequently than Amazon than nine prime customers do. . They also often price compare less. . So they're sort of like absorbed into this Amazon only World Walmart is trying to build sort of deeper relationships. . They probably would call it with their customers, , make them great customers, , and then with their customers make sure you know that this sort of locks them in. . So they don't Fly Amazon in the first place. . There's a couple of other reasons for fast. . Delivery is really expensive same day next day delivery. . It's really expensive. . So Walmart's hoping to maybe subsidize some of that expense through these subscription fees, , and then one of the last things I'll mention is just that I think they do feel whether they admitted or not that they need to do something as an alternative to Prime I reported earlier this year that more than half of Walmart's top spending families are now Amazon prime customers maybe they can win some of them back with this. . It is about twenty one dollars cheaper a year. . And there are trade-offs but maybe they went some back and maybe more importantly they just sort of stem the tide of. . Existing customers who haven't switched to prime yet from going there in the first place. .

"I traveled to Brazil where spent days in the remote part of the rainforest very far from big cities. And this is where I absorbed as much information from local indigenous people as I possibly could have handled later on this episode. You will learn them. Thinkable waste both. The Sahara in the Amazon rainforest are connected. I promised I promise you will be surprised. The Amazon rain forest also known as Amazonia or the Amazon jungle is the moist broadleaf tropical rainforest in the Amazon volume that covers most of the Amazon Basin of South America. The basin encompasses seven million square kilometers of which five and a half million square kilometers are covered by the rain forest. This region includes territory belonging to nine nations. The majority of the forest is contained within Brazil with sixty percent of the rainforest. The Amazon represents over half of the planets remain in rainforests and comprises the largest and most biodiverse tract of tropical rainforest in the world with an estimated three hundred ninety billion individual trees divided into sixteen seven species. The rain forest likely formed from fifty six million years to thirty four million years ago it appeared following a global reduction of tropical temperatures when the Atlantic Ocean had widened sufficiently to provide a warm moist climate to the Amazon Basin. The rainforest has been in existence for existence for at least fifty five million years and most of the region remained free of Savannah type by oems at least until the current ice age when the climate was drier and Savanna was more widespread. There have been significant changes in their own rainforest. Vegetation of the last twenty one solomon years through the last glacial maximum and subsequent deglaciation. No The promise.
