New York Times: Trump paid no income taxes in 10 out of 15 years beginning in 2000
"Paid no federal taxes in the past 10 or 15 years. Well, the president The New York Times has been doing its fake story after fake story. I've never seen anything like it, and Bloomberg's David Weston says It may not mean as much politically or for the election. I do think it maybe raises questions about his business acumen. I mean, he's raised his run as a billionaire and said that he's so a student businessman. According to the New York Times report, at least where they went over two decades of his tax returns, it appears that he's losing a lot of money.
C.I.A. Operatives in the Early Years of the Cold War
"Scott Anderson joins us now from the catskills. He is a contributing writer for the New York, Times magazine, and the author of many books. His latest is called the quiet Americans four CIA spies. Of the Cold War tragedy in three acts, Scott Welcome back to the podcast. Thanks much nice to be here. So you are allowed on the podcast to talk about your previous book Lawrence in Arabia which came out in twenty thirteen hand, which of course feels like now centuries ago which makes it clear to our listeners are longtime listeners that this is not your first. Book. Involving spies I'm curious what what's the draw for you but I think Speiser inherently fascinating in not just to an awful lot of people and of thought about what is I think it's the the allure of having a secret life. I think that I think that for an awful lot of people this idea that you have a whole separate identity is really fascinating New People. What I was drawn to in both the Lawrence and with in the quite America's the foresee a officers I follow is that in both cases, this was at a time when individuals out in the field had a tremendous freedom of action. So it wasn't. People sitting behind desks following policy that they're actually out in the field doing crazy stuff. You also have a personal connection to the story right in terms of what your father did for living you talk a little bit about that. Sure. My father was agricultural adviser for the Agency for International Development, which was a branch of the State Department. I grew up in. East. Asia in in Korea and Taiwan as Indonesia. and. So this was the nineteen fifties, nineteen sixties when I came along American government workers abroad often in those sorts of countries often were two hats whatever their official job was my father's job as agriculture adviser but it was also part of this great anti Communist crusade was happening around the world. So the upfront hearts and minds, soft power aspect of my father's work was working on agrarian reform in line with countries like these countries were were the land was was had been controlled infra centuries by all darkies. But the the more hard power in the darker side of what my father was doing was was setting up rural vigilante squads, home guard militias to watch over the local populace and to make sure that they weren't being swayed by the communist in certainly in countries like Taiwan or South Korea. If you were exposed or accused of being a leftist, your life was not going to go. Well, you know I'm now getting a sense of why one of the four characters in your previous book was an agronomist perhaps. That's right. Yeah it's well It's it's an interesting thing because. It just for national development was often used by the CIA as a cover because. Are Out, in the field, they're not, they're not saying, I'm destined to capitol there often out among the local population and probably have a better sense of what's happening. Outside what you one thing I'll say I've noticed over time in different countries. I've been almost invariably the ex Patriot community that knows best what's happening in the country are tend to be the people are out in the field in often the Middle East is the oil guys. They have a sense much more than than people sitting around in the capital. Let's start with frank wizner. The first person you mentioned, and this is not the the first book to be written at least in part about wisner who was he and what made him. So central to the story wizards amazing Turkey was a corporate lawyer who was working at a Wall Street firm when even before World War Two broke out and he quit his law firm to join the navy, he ended up being an operative for the office to teacher services, which is the the wartime intelligence agency of the of the army that they owe asset kind of the precursor to the CIA. That's right. That's right and he ends up being A. Kind of the first American to to to witness. The Soviet takeover of country in Eastern Europe, and this was in Romanian to summer of nineteen forty. Four So full year before the war ended and a wizard was on the ground as a as an oasis operative and just watch the strong arm tactics did really a matter of weeks led the Soviets to take control the country he and he was sending cables back to Washington telling telling them what are so good allies doing he sees the say he has the same experience in eastern Germany at the end of. The war in watching the way the Soviets for taking over, he goes back to his law from for couple of years for the complete unhappy, and then when the CIA starts up in nineteen forty seven, they have this idea that they wanna start a covert operations branch of of the CIA called the Office of Policy Coordination and frank listeners chosen to head that the name was deliberately chosen to be really boring. That's right and in fact, the name itself, the Office of policy coordination was was so top secret that even you can't even say the name out loud for twenty five years. So in that role wizner e created, what what he called the mighty world, which was this vast covert operations umbrella of a operating throughout the world and everything from hard power aspects of it like dropping dropping partisans behind the iron curtain to everything to cultural stuff voice. Of America. Radio Free Europe that was all came out of the Office of Policy Coordination.

Miami - Robert Kraft Prostitution Charges Dropped By Florida Prosecutors
"Prosecutors in Florida have dropped criminal charges against Patriots owner Robert Kraft, state attorney in Palm Beach County said it no longer had enough evidence to prosecute Robert Kraft for solicitation of prostitution. The decision follows an appellate court's ruling that surveillance video of craft inside the orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter was improperly obtained by police and therefore inadmissible in court. Although there was probable cause to make an arrest, Prosecutors said the evidence cannot prove all legally required elements of the crime and is insufficient to support a criminal prosecution craft is now pushing to have the videotape destroyed.

Stocks open lower as investor hopes for more fiscal stimulus fade
"Is the lack of fiscal stimulus to deal was the homegoing fallout from the Corona virus. Can you really see anything meaningful getting done? Before the election. Absolutely not. I mean, my bass case was hopeful that we would be able to get a fiscal stimulus down about a month ago. But now with the tragic passing of justice, revenge that we have this situation toward now, people are really battling on Capitol Hill on getting the next fiscal. Sammy was done. We saw today the Democrats coming out talking about At $2.4 billion English package, which did crop up the markets, But then it quickly faded away. And that's kind of been the name of the game. We see these conversations happen, and then they just fizzle out so The political uncertainty happening. We just don't believe that that will be the next Case going forward with the fiscal stimulus, so investors still have to embrace that left policy. So included in this planet's being sketched out by the Democrats. It includes some relief for the airline industry here in the U. S. Has a way of averting those a massive jobs losses that could come next week when the cares act goes away today, Mnuchin Treasury secretary said. Hey, I cannot tap the unused Corona virus lending authority to get grants to the carriers. What is the outlook for domestic carriers? And you've in your view? You had the outlook's pretty dim right now. We definitely do need that fiscal stimulus to coat into those airlines air into those domestic carriers just because of the multiplier that they have on economic conditions that it's not just the airlines and the employees that we need to worry about. It's all of the subsidiaries of small companies that go into helping those airlines operate on a daily basis. And so monetary stimulus has been a very big conversation. I think that's kind of not with focus needs to be because we need direct payments to these airline companies. We need direct payments from a fiscal support into the paychecks or to the pockets of airline workers.

The earliest human footprints in Arabia
"Now, we have contributing correspondent and gibbons. She wrote this week about the likely earliest human footprints on the Arabian Peninsula high an hi Sarah how old or how early are these footprints but that's a good question. They threw a whole package of dating methods at them and came up with in the Ballpark of twenty, one, thousand, two, hundred, and ten, thousand years old. Now the dates are not absolute. There's some questions about them, but that's a pretty good ballpark. How does this age compare to previous hints or clues that humans modern humans early modern humans were on the Arabian Peninsula. Here's the. We know that early hominids members of human family have been migrating out of Africa for two million years because we find fossils of our ancestors in the public of Georgia we find them in. Asia. We find them in Eurasia place, but we don't know how they got out and the most logical route is they had to walk through Rabia because they couldn't fly. They couldn't paddleboats a at that point the one landmass in the way between Africa where humans arose originally, our ancestors arose and Eurasia is through Arabia. So we know they had to go through there, but there's a huge gap there are. No tools older than three hundred to five, hundred, thousand years, and what is there is not definitive. The only fossil have a member of the human family from Arabia is a finger bone that is about eighty eight, thousand years old. So the mystery is, where's the evidence of members of the human family marching through Arabia, and then the second part of that is modern humans specifically, our ancestors Homo sapiens arose probably in Africa, because we see fossils in the ballpark of one, hundred, eight, thousand, three, hundred, thousand years of Proto early Homo, sapiens arising and Africa, and then we find more of these sort. Of Early Homo Sapiens in Greece dating possibly back to as early as two hundred and ten thousand. So we know that they got out right now we're just trying to find evidence. Is there something that going on in the Arabian Peninsula that either people didn't want to hang out there for very long or that erased a lot of evidence. Reagan. Peninsula, has covered with desert's it's very dry today the food desert where they found these fossils is parched arid but there were periods in the past where the planet was cooler and wetter, and during those times hundred, twenty, five, thousand years ago it was. One of them, it was green radio was covered with tens of thousands of lakes. They were grasslands between them. If you think about these early human ancestors, it's not a separate continent or a separate place for them to go to its Afro Arabia, right? Yeah. So it's an extension of Africa if the client is good and they're following large game, how were they able to find these footprints? This is a very large area and it's a few remnants of human passing through. Yes. So this team will have by Michael, Leah and it's an international team of Saudi Arabians in a number of people on. Has Been doing a search of scouring the deserts of. Arabia. For the last decade, they start with satellite imagery which helps them see parched ancient lake beds which have sort of characteristic white halio souls often these ancient sediments that stand out in the satellites and then go down to ground truth what they see on the satellites, an airplane shots they go in on foot in jeeps, and in this case they saw this ancient. Lake better rolling out as white sediment. It had just been recently exposed by Rosen and they found the footprints of the animals which was amazing and as I looked closer to one hundreds of footprints, it was four hundred mostly animals but they did identify a small number. It was seven that seemed to be human footprints. So they knew right away they were very excited about that that this was something that was important how Can you tell that they're human footprints and not some other upright walking relative? There's not a whole science of studying human footprints ever since the first ones are found in la totally in Tanzania and Kenya there've been a number of footprints that have been studied people use three D morphometric dimensional analysis with computational imaging or can really look at the depth and they could model how much weight would have been needed to make. That footprint, the length of the foot, the stride between the steps, and then they've done studies living people in their footprints in Africa to sort of test out those ideas and Lo, and behold when they do that to these footprints, they seem to come up with somebody kind of humor that was taller and maybe a little lighter weight more like a modern human of Homo sapiens and say an Andrew Tall so based on that. They say, Oh, these probably were made by Homo sapiens although we cannot rule out that nanotubes might have been there to is there anything else can tell about these people by looking at these marks I think if they get more, they can start to tell about their social structure footprint studies in Africa. I've got quite complicated where you could see the direction that they're going in the payson different members of social groups you can. To see what they are the packs of humans look like you know, what size are they how many are in these groups? What are they doing a lot of the way in this case, they're not spending a lotta time. They're just sort of walking through. This is a bantering group. What is really really cool. Though is that footprint site these are a snapshot of a single moment in time a single day most of the. Time when you have an archaeological site in a layer soil that you get the fossils of the tools and the dates, all that took place. This fan is usually hundreds of thousands, tens of thousands of years. So if you find an animal bone near a prominent human early Human Boehner tool, you don't necessarily know fear there at the same time as parch with footprints like these these were lay down in the same day maybe. A couple of days and they dried out and then got caught up in preserved. So we know they were all there at the same time. So you get this really cool day in the life look at the and of the animals they were with, which is really cool in this case and lots of animals. Yes. Almost four hundred footprints of animals including very interesting. A wild asses which I don't think we're carrying burdens but. That's kind of neat and they were elephants and the thing that's interesting about the elephants as their popular disappeared for the Middle East, just in Africa. Thanks for three hundred years ago and here they are in hundred twenty, thousand in Arabia and the camps they also Campbell's it's kind of interesting that such large animals with Aaron. It begs the question were these humans following them where they attracted them. Going back to the, we talked about it being about one, hundred, twenty, thousand years old. There's some question about the date but if that were cracked, is there anything particularly Gordon about this time human history about what we know about migrations that we could link these prince two? Yes. So what is really interesting is that genetic evidence says that everybody outside of Africa. Came from migrations that happened in the last fifty to eighty thousand years. So this state predates that we happen to know that early Homo Sapiens were in the Middle East pretty quickly after this or at the same time they're fossils in caves. At school and cough so that our early sort of product Homo sapiens. So we know humans are at sorta suggests that because we don't have DNA that dates back this early these were failed migrations. These were members of the human family that went out they weren't shelled migrations for them they lived, but they did not contribute to the gene pool of letting people today that's one hypothesis but it also shows that there's more complex story of groups of humans migrating out of Africa constantly whenever the weather excitement is right that it's three to nothing that they can get water follow animals to meet and trek. Africa. They can cross the desert. It looks like humans were doing that whenever they could and so how do they contribute tour ancestry today a really interesting question and how many different kinds of hominids out there. Thank you so much an thank you. Sir,

Boston - Florida Decision Likely Clears Robert Kraft Of Solicitation
"Well, charges are likely to be dropped in the prostitution solicitation case against Patriots owner Robert Kraft. As prosecutors in Florida decide against another appeal disease, Jim McKay says Kraft also wants video evidence in the case destroyed forever. It was last month when the state appeals court sided with the lower court's decision to have video evidence in this case thrown out under the guise of the way cameras were installed during the investigation of the Orchards of Asia SpA in West Palm Beach, Florida. Robert Kraft legal team, saying the way that was handled tied to a search warrant violated Fourth Amendment rights. A judge last year agreed with that argument in the state's case has been an uphill battle ever since, and appeals courts craft was initially charged with solicitation in February of last year after more than 20 men were arrested for allegedly receiving sex acts for payment in that spot.

Stumbling block: the battle over WeChat
"A new battle is shaping up in the legal wrangles around. Social Media APPS operating in. America. The trump administration's attempt to block we chat and Tiktok from American APP. Stores was overturned by a federal judge on Sunday. Yesterday, America's Commerce Department said it would appeal. The wildly popular video sharing Tiktok has been the subject of jockeying from American firms for ownership after President Donald Trump said he would ban it unless CEOS was agreed. It can't be controlled for security reasons by China too big too. Invasive and it can't be and here's the deal I don't mind if whether it's Microsoft or somebody else a big company secure company, very, very American company by it. That seemed to be solved on Saturday when he approved a deal involving Oracle and Walmart. But that still left, we chat a platform with a huge following in China and among the Chinese diaspora if you as battling TV use of which had that would ask. For examples, I can use the. In. The US Li Tang is Chinese but lives in New York Bats. The hub was blocking China's. Savings so The government binding dvd from using the reach hats not means my connection with China is totally being cut off. The administration's wish to block it entirely now lies with the courts, but that battle will be very different from the one over Tiktok. This was going to cripple these we just in America for about three and a half million Chinese Americans who the majority of its users and the California judge has sort of paused this in order to examine. Around freedom of speech in doing this, how Hudson is the economists Asia Technology correspondent. The ruling kind of acknowledges that while there may be national security questions, it doesn't appear immediately that Aban is the only way to deal with those questions and the ban does appear to impinge upon the freedom of speech of those Chinese Americans, and so it's kind of a we're gonNA take a moment here in to check how legal this is and that makes sense because nothing like this has ever happened before. So in in what way What what are the rights that are that are under threat here? Well, it's pretty broad brush. We shot is kind of everything up and both in mainland China and and in America people, use it, use it for loads of different things they use to send money to their families. They use it obviously to communicate to the most obvious analog. There is something like what's up but also has personal finances. It has news it's kind of like. A little internet in a box and for a lot of people that's the whole Internet, and so that's why cutting it off is such a risky thing and yet the fact that it's sort of all of the Internet in a single APP is particularly important in China where not only are other services. Particularly Western services blocked Yukon download them from APP stores in China, things like twitter and facebook and what's up, but the communication on we. Chat itself is censored according to the Chinese government sort of prescriptions and so in a way, this freedom of speech argument is actually a question of whose freedom of speech you know do we want Americans to be free from Chinese censorship or do we want them to be free to use a service that they want to use? It's a it's a difficult question and so on. What grounds is the trump administration trying to ban it. Well, the stated reasoning is that we chat presents a national security risk to America and to American people. As with Tiktok the idea is that data about American sort of intimate data communication with their families. Businesses can be harvested through we chat and sent back to the Chinese government for various purposes. The other concern is that we got sensors conversations on its APP and both of these have grounds. In fact there there's research from the group. Called the citizen's lobby in Toronto which does showed that we chat is censoring various kinds of communication, not just in mainland China but all around the world for its extra China, which users. But there's a more skeptical angle to this on the government's motivation, which is that being tough on China looks good for trump in the run-up to an election and it puts Joe Biden in a corner to sort of force him to take position on closeness with China. To how does the discussion around we chat fit into the the rather longer running one about Tiktok the difference between the two of them is that TIKTOK has American investors tiktok has its roots in the acquisition of an American company, and so that gives America sort of jurisdiction over to talk because America's always had control over investment in the United States, and that's the kind of starting point for the examination of Tiktok and the administration's talk on talk we chat doesn't have that. We chat doesn't have any American acquisitions that formed it. It's a much older piece of technology and it's much more sort of purely Chinese. So the only way that the administration has to attack tiktok is through this very unusual executive order that resulted in a list of transactions from the Department of Commerce. That again important to remember doesn't have a precedent and so you know when we're looking at what this the results of this temporary stay from the judge in California will be. It's very hard to say because nothing like this is awesome before. So in in that regard, the long run outcome of this won't be the kind of division and selling jockeying that we've seen about Tiktok no, there's no latitude for that. I mean the fact is as well that we chats three point five, million users in America doesn't represent like gigantic sort of social media growth opportunity that tiktok one, hundred, million users, a brand new APP that you know all the kids. Are On that's a much more exciting proposition for companies like Oracle at Walmart that are you know supposed to be taking stakes in? TIKTOK. But the other way in which these two things are joined up is in the American government's increasing efforts to control the kinds of things that happened on the Internet and this isn't just about versus China America versus China is kind of catalyzing a much much bigger discussion about what happens online and who gets to be in charge of that. But all of this seems to be getting away from the you know free on splintered on almost entirely unregulated Internet that America pioneered. Yeah. It undeniably is is just a factual observation to say that this source of activity very top down very directly political. You know trumped basically in charge of these things and and a group of bliscoll allies starts to look. A lot like the way that China does business online and I guess that's not necessarily a problem at Priori. But it's definitely a change in the way that America does its business and it is important to remember that it's not like America. Star should this to China has not allowed loads of different American services in for a very long time and you know one. Potential. Outcome of this is that you'll see the people who really need these services using them sort of illicitly. So you start to get a kind of grey market for digital services where your ability to route around the controls that your government puts on. You dictate your ability to access the services you need, and that's probably a bad thing. Hell, thanks very much for your time. Thank you Jason.

Be the ones who stand up for him here is where China's Fan Culture and actually Asian Fan Culture in general it kind of veers away from even the most intense fan behavior in the West because a lot of fancy it as their job, even their responsibility, not just to admire their idol and to support him but to go so much further. So is he talks about how in these? Media groups, some of which will have hundreds of thousands of followers. Each there are something called a child Wa. So sopra topic, what's called Super Topic or Toha, and which some of the lead fans who devote hours a day to organizing this fans structure, we'll give orders to. Fans beneath them about what they need to achieve for that day. So today, we're all going to click on this one music video and watch it or today we're all going to buy products from this brand because they've signed an endorsement deal with children. Say the broadcaster from the Child Watt who say today when you to do this today when you to do that so you remember that Estee Lauder ad for lipstick according to Chinese media estee Lauder Botox, pitched show in two thousand eighteen sold out not only within the first day of their release but within the first. Hour. Totalling almost six million dollars in sales, and then back on the fan club sites, fans would celebrate what they saw as their success. It's IMMA fine. You want to support your idol by making here she gets the most brand endorsements and makes the most money on behalf of these companies. I get I get what Xiaojun gets out of this he gets. And success money what fans get out of making him. So successful by being particularly influential fan of Superfan you also get a lot of power and influence the majority of his fans are going to be. Young girls in their middle school or high school years. So in real life, they're not going to have a lot of power in Chinese society. But by being a part of this fan group, you become part of this very powerful commercial

I have given about the structure the origin and as some of the behind the scenes techniques that I employ to produce Indian Noah. It is a one odd. Plus conversation read. I spoke about how I went from spending decades writing novels to doing spoken word to diving into the world of podcasting talk about my writing process especially the use of TV and clean writing techniques to create fast binge worthy episodes. I talk about the unique structure behind Indian watt and it's multiple shows and I also talk about how one can take on the challenge of doing something new in the creative podcasting scene and how to tap into it as a budding podcastone auto creative coming up now in this episode off some accepts from that conversation but if you want to listen to the entire interview go check out Port Lavish Asia on your podcasting APP And listen to this conversation or you can visit.

That's is the big fish in the ocean. Everything else comes below it. It's because of its potential to marry narratives music and visuals and be able to tell us long-form About that's obvious but I thought always.

Walk me through the structure and could you tell me? Why did he do it like that? Yeah Yeah So. My goal was to Oakland the Joan.

So that's why instituted in new X. Which is a collection of Admiral expedience that people have shared with me over the ease and I have a huge positive this plus because I've actively asked people have always intrigued by the supernatural than actively engaged in the conversation.

"We're GONNA be profit with us because you know the cost Yeah it's crazy but so the real questions they we can make numbers or whatever you want how those numbers represented or they actually realistic I the part of the problem is I don't have they don't really share the data for the others for the other airlines lines. They did actually share the full number of their permanent and contract employees and expenses for pilots and Co pilots cabin crew ticketing sales in all other as the four categories stories and interesting basic Maso. Eighteen hundred eighty four pilots making twelve billion rupees. A year which. I did the math on that the other night and day. Not to average pilot salary of ninety thous in a year. US dollars and there's twice as many flight attendants in half and they make half as much which suggests the flight attendant makes like twenty two twenty two grand but but one of their expense problems is where they're putting these people up in the demands of the staff for higher end hotels and stuff so it while the staff may not be a direct cost. It's the demands of the stuff that's impacting their expenses. The other interesting to me is that post disinvestment the government for requirement that government travel on government in place travel on Air India will not continue to fly so The government is currently required to fly on Air India because flag By the company take by the government. That's GONNA be the case gunfire so government. Employees just breathed a sigh of relief. Probably I have a number of Indian friends who refused to fly Air India. Unlike the cheapest you know you you know they asked me. They always asked me for advice on booking flights and Mike well I mean there's some Air India flights at JFK or Chicago. Kogyo here's all these. San Francisco is wrong and they get pretty much everyone knows JFK. Heathrow right I know somebody who's to fight them regular because they were cheap and she was like yeah. It was three hundred bucks but like you know one out of eight bathrooms work in. There was a buck in the summer. Collecting water from the ceiling. Man can no idea whether doing poorly I have a question. This relate to all this how. How did they describe the seven eighty seven? They've been putting out on cinder blocks. Are they do mention that. They have some aircraft parked in Netflix See if I can find that tweet I had nice. It's more than one Portfolios stats. That costs grounded. Aircraft A to triple seven's three seven eighths six or seven peddle harder after seventy-nine teens in five or six three hundred one's wireless part yes the deal also excludes the seven four four hours Those are going to stick. Those will be maintained by the government went and or the airforce or something like that for for. VIP services are Prime Minister Seven four seven two. They have somewhere between one and four. How many are operational today? Still Marshall Service. That's what I thought. Thank pointed that out. I was when when Seth was in India I just randomly pulled up. Flight radar was looking at Indian flights. And there's like a domestic flight notice before four blew my mind take the random abide ellie rouse too because they have four active in two stored seven four force. Let's let's talk about Swiss Swiss airlines lines. They're they're moving airports. Maybe in in Shanghai from Shanghai Prudan to change Beijing Beijing sorry Beijing from Beijing capital two dashing. The new airport basically interesting because the star carriers were supposed to stay vision capital and. I wonder if this is lefty to splitting their your service to both airports so one really interesting thing to me is i. Went back to the history of the Zurich Beijing route the Air China and Swiss have alternated service but done it is code share back and forth for probably close to ten years now but as I could tell never both operated at the same time. So the part where they're going to sort of switch it is interesting Is is I mean. It's Swiss seeing something shiny maybe NFC sunshiny. They acknowledged the in the statement. They put out basically focused on access to a better time slots and makes a little credit airport. They can do better flight times. It's only a couple of hours difference each direction but They claim it's it's better eighty. They are better for the business rabbi but not a ton better and they were the only option on the routes. It's unclear this is really going to connect together instead. I guess you have to ask. I wonder how much is owned detract from Zurich to Beijing versus all the Inter Europe connecting. And so can you go to Beijing capital and left Ian Dodging on Swiss. You've he's covered the base of covering both airports. They do lose connecting traffic at the China as true. True I mean I guess I guess this is probably as good a time as any to talk about China in Corona virus. Everything that's going on rather world right now so Hong Kong is is now included in United's waiver. I don't know if it's included other airlines waivers but it's it seems like there's been rumors of shutting down air travel between China and the United States. I don't know how feasible that I mean. I guess it is feasible as someone saying no more fights between the United States and China right now the has the potential to really kill air traffic From Asia to Europe and US can everywhere a has also extended their serve waiver to Hong Kong. Okay Yeah I think that the Chinese government has already said as of Monday of this week. The twenty seventh Doc Group tours are no longer happening if not being sold not traveling done advanced airlines. That's bad news for hotels that's bad news for the Tourism Torch Industry on a global scale people buying is worse news In containing this outbreak is certainly more important. But it's bad news I'm just how long this lasted how broad it goes. We'll be real interesting to see. The Wuhan Airport was mostly close down. But there's a couple of flights every now and then going in and out right so that's also sort of substantially happening like. Why are those like actually happening? He I it's it's bad and what really hard parts is is trying to decide who to trust him. What to trust in terms of some of the numbers and what we're seeing in terms of the real impact because of China's history with playing Zeh loose with the truth especially things aren't great for it? I feel like I feel like what speaks for. Itself is You know we went from. It's no big deal. It's contained to do a city complete city on lockdown matter of the Inslee province. It's your the providence is now contained That to me is it's enough needed in Tennessee. Don't have enough of the testing kits enough people to do the testing so the one of the stories like we're going to build a whole new hospital in ten days to manage it with which is insane at many levels Can't clean the dust out of a construction site in ten days but whatever But maybe they are but also the whole situation is just like they. They didn't have people testing. There's a writer story out. I think it was raiders of someone like contacting people being told. Oh well Oh yeah. You're probably the your aunt. Probably does have it. But she doesn't look while she was pretty far along in being six. We're going to let her die rather than Done with it well. That's that's a great wood. The handle compare raising but that seems to be the idea or people taking three or four days are waiting in line at hospitals to get bed. Do the test is not like a strep throat culture focusing Go on yeah I mean I you know I I Fayza I had a trip initially planned to Asia this past week I skipped it. Fayyaz ause went But I think generally I think right now my rule is just avoid Asian till this is over. I think kids trip in two weeks. It just seems like it's commence Organization around it seems to be lacking a little bit. What's actually happening in the rumor mill and it just doesn't get better? Yeah there's there's also it's a ten day incubation period so it's really hard to tell yet except I mean that's ten days in the global travel world is a lifetime. Yeah and I know. They're opening up some screening locations and stuff here at us. Airports I think Houston was one of them. JFK PROBABLY DIDN'T JFK La San CONCEICO. So they've added more cities to the screening talk but like you said it's incubation period. Is Ten days in someone comes in and they just been exposed a to it those people are going to go home and infect others With with no way of knowing that they have actually had entered so is it adequate probably not into maybe. That's where these rumors of shutting down travel to China. As part of. That's coming from through the rumors. I mean there was actually press releases from from the White House. There's yeah there's something on CNBC from the White House to actually considering it. Okay so there you go. It sounds like the next story will be more important than the airlines never. Sky Tra is futures and derivatives trading platform for airline revenue This came out this come out today. It looks like last week and its own by Airbus wholly-owned subsidiary in its from its it headquartered in London and basically it's allowing airlines to hedge their revenue risk through trading of cash settled futures. which which? I just don't see this ending. Wealth tablets does seem to make sense so the argument being made is that it's very capital intensive industry and and to be successful. You have to invest huge amounts of money and you need some sort of guarantee that you're going to have money you know coming down the line and you don't know and so they're basically physically selling futures against what that revenue will be and they got they claim to have a global plus regional models that can accurately are whatever settled settled a big gambler. accuweather saying line on what the future revenue will be in your much like you buy oil futures for gas or whatever it is they think you can buy futures against just what the revenue will be. How do I short the system all remember member Southwest Airlines bought a huge chunk of oil futures in the nineties or eighty s and lived off that twenty thirty years when everybody else they're paying? Thank you know thirty on everybody else for a long time but then they also had hedge as much longer than anybody else wanted When it went down it backfired when they they had to Redo their portfolio backfired? The second round because by then people watching you with how they were doing rather than just Clinton Yup gambling on like literally throwing money on a blackjack table or we'll it made more sense but I could argue that this or some airlines..

We've been talking about getting I've been talking about South Asia, you know, for for years, but it got nowhere near the attention to the North Korea. Got for obvious reasons. I think because North Korea and the US earner have an adversarial relationship it's easy to forget about South Asia. But I think we do so at our peril because I think that right now is probably the most active arms race in the global queer landscape. There's a positive to arms races is that we get to have lots of arms control podcasts about this. You always try we've caused growth industry, it's a growth industry, you know? And we always try and podcast on a happy note. And usually my happy this usually not very much be happy about at the end of podcast because usually it means that there's more nuclear weapons or more missiles.

And I'm wondering how you evaluate the current trends in US policy and any recommendations you might have for the Trump administration? Well, if you look at it, I don't like the rebalance only slightly better because it knows inconstancy what what way can be can another way. But actually, if you look at US policy since the early seventies, what has been most evident is consistency. You are here and I don't see any sign of you retreating the great disruption of US. Policy's always Asia was the Nixon doctrine. The doctrine in ninety sixty nine. And since then there has been fluctuations from administration, administration, because every ministration obliged to distinguish yourself from the previous one, even if the distinctions minute and the free and open Indo Pacific is the latest iterating of what has been actually very consistent policy.

"A power in asia and elsewhere how strong do you think those alliance networks are particularly since we have a president president trump who has periodically questioned value alliances to the united states and done things like left the transpacific partnership should have rattling people's confidence in whether america's can stay in the pacific for the long run well one of the reasons that president trump's worldview and the way he conducted himself in policy is so often disappointing for a friend of america is that he seems to be undermining america's very strengths in asia as as i says where the us really has strengths is it is in its alliances is in its attachment to trade in its values in it's the power of its of its press all sorts of things a real strengths for the united states but these are exactly the qualities of the united states about which mr trump seems unconvinced he skeptical of alonso's he's he doesn't like trade he thinks you know a lot of the news that you'll media present is fake news and so it's a bit odd really and it doesn't position it doesn't it doesn't he doesn't same well position to to win the longterm powell competition against jinping but having said that jim america has huge advantages that it can drawer on because most i asia means want the united states to remind engaged i mean that's that's an important question because i think many americans would say why should we be over there what do we really have at stake in all this well the reason asians once you is that you provide a balancing force for the region and you you complicate matters vagina you make it harder for china to dominate at logs and you know i've i've the last seventy years you'll forward presence in asia has helped to cape a lead owning to start friction and content can sort of provide the benign conditions under which successive is in nations have reason so i think that's what's in it for us now what's in it for you well the truth is that in the next fifty years a lot of the world's challenges and opportunities come from asia and you're.

"Claims will but i thought of the rebounds policy setting very high bar and as a policymaker for a period of time in the policy planning staff at the state department i felt it always made us try to reach higher in terms of engagement in southeast asia so we have to sort of see as the indo pacific policy continues to be fleshed out and i think we see a high level of diplomatic engagement continued security engagement particularly on the maritime front bringing in india and so on ozzy on just wants to make sure that they're not crowded out that they're not sort of hyphen in a sense between the two sides of this broader region that's being described jonathan looking ahead then what kind of additional research will you be doing to help visitors to the brookings website to help policymakers to help listeners of this podcast understand and think about issues in south east asia well we have different plans personally i'm working as we often do here brookings on a book that is looking at china southeast asia relations as they've been evolving the last few years where they may go in the future and then what are the policy implications for both us policy towards southeast asia in general but perhaps the us china relationship in particular we're also looking to kind of expand our social media engagement and hopefully do some podcasts like this with experts from the region and ask them about the breaking issues whether it's the may kong the row hinge issue in myanmar and bangladesh and abroad set of other issues as well including elections coming up in indonesia for instance so we're looking to expand and do more and engage with top think tanks in the region through that process why invite you to come back on the show and continue this conversation to eliminate the issues in southeast asia it's fascinating region and we wanna learn more about it so jonathan thank you for sharing your time and expertise.

"Australia uc kind of common support and perhaps a greater level of coordination of course the vietnamese i think are very deft at facilitating and cultivating this so it sort of there's a push and pull and kind of think organic way in which this is developing i sometimes see it new amis foreign policy as trying to balance china through greater relationships with other countries but going just far enough without provoking china because china will always be there ultimately they need a stable relationship with china so you mentioned the bombing ministrations rebalance some people have called it the pivot to asia policy that we heard about now we're hearing the trump administration in it state department especially as talking about the indo pacific region we've mentioned india couple of times here can you talk about the points of continuity but also the points of change with respect to us policy in southeast asia from the obama administration to the trump administration yeah i mean south east asia in the sort of is of us foreign policy toward asia has always i think kind of been a part of a larger strategic kind of footprint or strategy so sometimes there's a sense that southeast asia isn't taken as seriously in its own right as some southeast asian countries would like to see but we saw i think a marked change particularly during the obama administration where there was the launching initially was called informally the pivot eventually became the rebalanced policy and generally it was focused on modernizing treaty alliances in the region expanding bilateral relations with emerging partners many of which were in southeast asia like vietnam indonesia singapore which there was already a long standing relationship with and further afield as well india and they're critical aspect was supporting me on mars kind of opening and democratic.
