Danton have you ever wondered what it's like to be rich taking Oliver for detox in the Hamptons standardized testing has really stressed him out. Really rich. Why are you wearing a tux? It's after six what am I farm or private jet to your island state in the Caribbean? Rich. I mean, it's one banana, Mike, what could it cost ten dollars? Most of us will never know what that's like. But if you've ever been at least a little curious about the lives of the Uber wealthy this. Next segment is for you. Brooke Harrington is a sociologist at the Copenhagen business school in Denmark several years ago, she decided to explore the secret lives of billionaires. Her strategy become a wealth manager, Brooke discovered that in order to manage money for the super-rich wealth managers. Learn a lot about the private lives of their clients and a very different set of rules that govern their world. Brooke Harrington, welcome to hidden brain. Thank you for having me on the show for wealth managers to do their job broke. I understand that they need to find out everything about a client's life, not just a client's financial life, but everything about their life. Give me some examples of the kind of compositions people have with wealth managers, and the kind of issues they bring up about that personal circumstances that might affect how their wealth is managed. Well, usually starts with what's called know your client activity. So if you were to come to me with me acting as the wealth manager, I would I ask to see some proof of identity like your passport. And then we would talk about what goals you had for your wealth. And that begins the series of increasingly delicate, and increasingly intrusive questions, then usually we get into whatever real reason is bringing you to me maybe you want to avoid your. Taxes? Maybe really don't like your family. That's surprisingly common among wealthy people. For example, if you have a a relative, or if you yourself or engaging in some activity that might get you extorted, it may not be legal, but it might be socially shameful. That's a financial risk that your wealth manager needs to know about if you have a son or daughter with a drug problem, that's a financial risks that your wealth manager needs to know about their can also be issues. Like, I think I'm headed for a divorce. But I don't want my spouse to get half my assets. How do I hide those assets preferably offshore? So that whatever is is legally provable as mine is such a small amount that it's not worth fighting about suicide already interesting because these professionals in some ways get to know their clients better than the clients own family or friends or even their own spouse. Yes, it's it's apparently something of a cliche in the offshore world that the average client is a a man in his. Fifties with a secret family somewhere might be a gay lover might be a common law wife and some children, but they're usually all sorts of secrets that these wealthy folks wished to keep hidden, and that they have the additional privilege of being able to hire people to take care of in secret. So I understand you conducted about sixty five interviews in eighteen countries for this book, tell me a little bit about the people you met to be a wealth manager you have to understand finance and the law, but this kind of wrote also calls for a certain psychological makeup. What kind of person becomes a wealth manager will several of the people I spoke to describe themselves and only somewhat joking terms of social workers for the rich. So you you have to have empathy and a desire to help people. But also, very high tolerance for people who would otherwise seem to be. So extremely privileged that you might be otherwise inclined to smack him around and say snap out of it. You're. Lucky you write in your book about the extreme lengths that some managers. Go to please their clients or to provide services to their clients you write about a manager named Eleanor engine Neva who said that one of her clients once called her from outside a restaurant in London tummy that story. So this is one of the first stories that I heard that really made my eyebrows race. It was while I was training to be a wealth manager Eleanor told this story over lunch of receiving a phone call from a client who was in another country saying I've just lost my bracelet outside of a restaurant helped me find it and the client didn't identify the restaurant by name. So imagine having someone call you from another country. I mean, obviously the country was identified but not anything remotely approaching a location. So you have to sort of marvel at the immaturity of the client expecting someone else to help her fix a problem like this, but Eleanor somehow did it she she determined where the client was and what exactly had been lost. And got the local authorities on the case found the bracelet and build the client for all the time. And apparently the client was happy to pay. There are sometimes clients do make requests like this not because they are acting childish, but because they actually have an ulterior motive they actually want to test the loyalties or ability off the wealth manager, you tell the story of a wealth manager in Hong Kong named David. Yes, he he got a call early on in his relationship with the client in which the client said that he was in Japan, and he was meeting with Japanese gentleman who had. Expressed desire for smoked salmon. And that this client had promised him. I think a thousand sides of smoke salmon straight from the factory in Scotland. And was now calling David saying get me the salmon and David said, all I'm I'm your wealth manager, not your fish monger. And the client said well today, you're the fish monger. And so David happens to know someone who knew the head of the smoke salmon factory in Scotland, and he he fulfilled. The client's wish and the client later told him I basically made up that story. I wasn't sitting across from a Japanese fellow who wanted to sides of smoke salmon. I just needed to see that you had the connections, and the will to do what I wanted one. I wanted and not ask any questions. One thing that I got from your book is that there are important ways in which the very rich are very much like the rest of us and ways in which they're not so wealthy people on surprisingly turn out to have troubled marriages and wayward children just like everybody else. But but wealth, you argue can compound those challenges. Well, apparently, it's it's not uncommon for the wealth manager to be asked to find a recommend rehab facilities for kids or apparent will ASA wealth manager to break some bad news to the the next generation to to his or her own children. Sometimes the the wealth manager has to broker a truce between feuding family members say one family member feels that they've been done done by unfairly in the inheritance plan and has to be somehow brought back in so that they don't sue the family. The big risk here is if you have a disgruntled family member who sues the lawsuit process. In many countries makes public many many private documents. That would reveal the extent and nature of a families wealth all of which has have been carefully guarded secrets.

But underneath I wrote down my real Email address. Over the next few days. I found myself thinking a lot about my interaction with doc, my own behavior. There was something about how Vegas of and dismissive I'd been that felt wrong. Then an Email appeared. It was from duck. It was only a few short lines, nothing profound, but something about it tugged at me. Like despite knowing the reasonable thing to do would just be to let it go. I felt a need to move towards it to try to actually figure out who this man was, whether I should have given him the wrong number or if giving him I real Email address was a good thing to do. Maybe if I could figure that out, I'd have more clarity about the broader question. Who do you let in and who do you keep out? Okay. Here goes nothing.

It was a hot dry summer this year in the American southwest in farming communities, and the four corners region were Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico.

Dave Hyun got a call the woman on the other end was frantic screaming as she watched her eighty two year old husband in the yard, and he was being beaten whether shovel by his eighty six year old neighbor, the fight was over water. One of the men accused the other of taking more than his share. From their irrigation ditch leaving less for everyone else. You had to old timers that were very stubborn and very hard headed, and they were bound and determined to do it their way. And the other party was saying, no, you won't. Yun is sheriff's deputy in Montezuma county Colorado in the four corners tasked with enforcing the state's complex water law. He's probably the only deputy in the state with this kind of job, making sure water goes where it's supposed to. We've seen some really inventive ways this year for stealing water. So how did they do it? Well, one method drop a pump into an irrigation ditch turn it on. And if you don't have the water rights to do that, it's a crime method. Number two, you have rights to water, but not a lot. So you take more than you're allowed. Cortes empty inside is black. Ford pickup Hyun says when he started handing out tickets for water theft, it didn't go. Over? Well, I people were shocked. They were like, you kidding me, right? You're going to site me over water like, yes, it's a valuable commodity in this day. Seventy six year old farmer Bob Schuster knows all about water thieves. He grows wine grapes and hey, and runs a plumbing supply store in the county's biggest city of Cortez. He's dressed in denim, overalls sporting a black and gray beard. Schuster says, droughts make people desperate people are basically, and these are good people basically dish launched Schuster's farm is at the end of an irrigation ditch with several users upstream. If they're taking more water than they're entitled to it dries up before it reaches his crops. They look after field is she the need water and water go through? It's not theirs, and it's common for emotions to run high in these disputes. He says he's had guns pointed at him, shovel swung in his head and Ben sucker punched and fights with neighbors over water. Snap you back at the office Hyun says, violent skirmishes have declined since the county started enforcing water law, but it's a fragile peace. Historically, we've had people killed over water in the state of Colorado. We have in this county Hyun is on patrol in a part of the country where climate change is likely to make water even more scarce than it is. Now, we don't want the fighting between families and between friends. We want to be able to resolve it in a non-violent way.

State officials are proposing new rules to limit methane emissions. The big oil and gas state is doing this as the Trump administration has relaxed, its own such rules, and as a UN climate report urges countries to dramatically cut greenhouse gases from Wyoming, public radio and NPR's energy and environment. Team Cooper mckim reports a decade ago. Pinedale Wyoming had a big problem with methane. It's an area with a lot of oil and gas in leaks were creating smock nearby schools kept certain kids inside during recess, somedays residents complained of headaches, Dave whole remembers going cross country skiing and seeing a Brown tinge in the air. We spoke. Last year. So I remember I was in bed for a week or so with something like the flu, it felt like, but it didn't seem like the flu methane produced ozone was above legal limits. So a Wyoming agency eventually required stricter guidelines, and it did lower emissions, but only in that small area. But with federal rules, uncertain Wyoming has decided it needs to do more than offer at a recent public hearing residents debated a proposal to expand the state's regulations on emissions, including methane since oil and gas is in nearly every county. Don Dunkin says she feels the effects. There has been charm used it. So in there the Cunanan season. The conversation around a stricter statewide. Methane rule suddenly seems more urgent with the Trump administration's rollbacks. John Goldstein is with the environmental defense fund. It's going to leave eastern Wyoming where eighty percent of the drilling in Wyoming is currently happening without the benefit of these measures, which he says, is worrisome with thousands of new wells plan to come online soon, Wyoming proposed changes would mimic a central part of Obama era. Methane rules, semi annual inspections for oil and gas in search of invisible leaks that emit methane Wyoming would join only two other states with comprehensive methane emission rules, California in Colorado out Wyoming's department of environmental quality, Nancy veer says the proposed rules are needed regardless the federal rollbacks. We're doing this because it's the right thing to do for Wyoming under our technical analysis of all the information. We have surprisingly, the oil and gas industry, which opposed the Obama administration's federal regulation. Supports the state's moves. On a windy day at a productive five acre. Well, pad superintendent, trae web of wold. Energy partners says regular inspections. Catching natural gas leaks would be no problem walking up a metal stairway to massive oil storage tank. He says they've already caught leagues using a special. Infrared camera. It'll identify any problems that you can't see, you know, just with the naked eye or or being able to hear it or something company president Peter wool says he had invest in more expensive equipment when federal regulations went into place, but he says it's worth it to keeps valuable gas leaking. A one of the basic racist. We want to sell all this gas. We're not interested in having vented. In fact, since twenty thirteen, the US has missed out on over two billion dollars worth of leak natural gas, but the Trump administration argues that captured natural gas would not pay off that compliance and implementation is too expensive. In any case wold prefers answering toyomi. We always believed that. The closer regulation to the individual, whether it's from the county here from the state, it's better than having it regulated by the government better. She to DC, Pennsylvania and Virginia are also working on their own methane regulations. Meanwhile, it's not clear if the federal rollbacks will actually happen.

National cooperative Bank offers online deposit accounts that positively impacts communities learn more at NC dot coop, slash impact member FDIC well, forecasters have gotten better much better in recent years at predicting the path of a hurricane, but the intensity that's more tricky here to help us understand why is Angela Fritz. She's a meteorologist with the Washington Post's capital weather gang, and she has been following this storm and this whole storm season, Angela. Fritz welcome. Thank you. So we all knew hurricane Michael was coming. We did not all know it was going to be this strong that it would be a category, four. So start there. Why is the intensity of a hurricane? So hard to predict broadly generally, we know whether a hurricane is going to intensify or weaken what we can't really tell is whether it's going to rapidly. Tense find that something that we keep hearing over and over again, especially over the past decade or so about these rapidly intensifying hurricanes. So what has changed in the last decade or so that has created this phenomenon of rapidly intensifying hurricanes? We're seeing a change. I think in NC surface temperature were seeing stronger storms because the sea surface temperature, the ocean, water is so much warmer. We just don't quite have the knowledge available to us in the equations available to us to predict exactly when and how it's going to intensify. And we need a lot more research to understand exactly when that will happen. So described to me what was going through your mind last night as you're watching this and it's doing something different than you were expecting even a couple of days ago, you know, in the back of your mind, you're always thinking this, this is something that could happen, and it's something that storms can do, especially when they have the perfect conditions, the warm water of the Gulf of Mexico. It's perfect for storms like Mike. Michael last night it happened and we all were kind of looking at each other like, Yep, there goes. And when say, when it happened, you're mean what you're watching wind speeds that are higher than you expected or. Yes, as the storm starts to rapidly intensify its Hixon. This this buzzsaw like shape it becomes very well defined. You have the sinking feeling that things are about to get much worse than than the forecasts had suggested. Although, to my central question of why predicting intensity is so challenging, you're citing factors such as warmer waters, warmer ocean waters, but we all know that's the case we all know is happening. So is one step here just to start predicting hurricanes are going to be more intense than they were a generation ago. I mean, that is when one step another step is that we need better research and we need more time in effort and manpower to be able to look at the dynamics of a her. McCain to to really sit down and piece everything together. Any last minute forecasts you wanna give us for how this week will play out with her Ken, Michael, it's going to have a devastating impact on the coast and well inland. Hurricane conditions will expand well inland into Tallahassee and even parts of Alabama and Georgia, and then rainfall, strong winds up into the Carolinas, and it will blow out by Friday. But I also just want to make sure that you know people in the Carolinas and and southeast Virginia are aware that this is a storm that will affect you. Angela firts. Thanks so much. Thank you.

FDIC Google is shutting down its consumer version of Google, plus it's social network that some saw as its answer to Facebook. This comes after a flaw was discovered that might have exposed personal information of hundreds of thousands of customers according to the Wall Street Journal that flow was discovered in March. But the company decided not to disclose it with us in our studio in Washington. DC is one of the reporters who broke the story, Doug MacMillan. Thanks for being here. Hi, good morning. So can you start by telling us about this flaw that you and your colleagues at the Wall Street Journal discovered? I mean, what information could have gotten out here? Yes. Over a two year two to three year period from two thousand fifteen until earlier this year, people who entered their profile. Information into Google plus information like their gender birthday, full name, Email address. All that data could have been available to outside developers. If basically, if your friend had signed up to some Google plus app, those developers potentially could have gotten access to this data. The number of potentially affected number is of users small. It's only about potentially a half a million users, which in the world of potential data breaches that is not the real questions that are reporting focused on our kind of what Google did when it find out this this this, you know the security patch flog listed or didn't do right. I mean, they didn't go public and let people know that their privacy might have been at risk, why? Yes. So the sort of the story that their tallying which is they took a look at what happened. They investigated these apps. Some extent, they found that there was no suspicious activity, and they decided that there is no evidence of MS. Issues of data. So they had no obligation to tell users, but our reporting shows that there was another factor at play, which was they were worried about the repercussions of coming forward with this information. You know earlier this year, right? Right. At the time they discovered this, the Facebook Cambridge Analytica data breach. It just happened on. There's a lot of regulator scrutiny of Facebook and tech companies and how they're handling data. And internally they were worried about being pulled into this conversation in a bigger way. We'll have. They responded to your reporting, and I guess also they said anything about how they might prevent this from happening another so that they're, they took a pretty drastic step, which is they not, you said earlier they they announced they're closing the consumer side of Google plus, which is pretty big step. They're also taking a number of steps to kind of rain in some data privacy, potential problems. They make a lot of data available to outside developers on an Android phones for things like g mail. There are. There are a lot of. Different apps that can you can use to to, and those developers can also get your data. So they're taking some steps to shut down some of those channels in the short term that could actually hurt some of their relationships developers, but they're saying that in the long term, maybe this could prevent a situation like this from happening again, based on your reporting, should people feel safe using Google if the care about privacy? I think that there are some real questions that users have to ask themselves about trust it. In this situation, there is a pretty serious decision being made about how to handle, you know a situation involving sensitive personal data, and there was no transparency into that decision the, you know these people in in a room in mountain Mountainview decided how to handle sensitive issue around user data, so can users can Google keep the trust of its users going forward. I think that they're going to have a lot of work to do to to get that trust back. Doug MacMillan covers Google for the Wall Street Journal. He joined colleagues and writing the story.

I'm Bob Boylan my number one album for twenty seventeen was big thief's capacity and in two thousand sixteen their album masterpiece was in my top five. So when I heard that Adrian Lincoln big thief singer and songwriter had a new solo record. I was listening. The album is called abyss. Kiss spelled as one word, all lower case. It's a quiet affair introspective in deep reaching and its lyrics Adrian's finger pick ATar and ambient sound set the tone for the album's ten songs. The record is co produced with Luke temple. You might know him from here. We go magic. It's out October fifth on saddle creek. The newest song released from abyss kiss. One called from it's the sort of song. I'm a sucker for one way, or the words are open to interpretation a song that paints pictures all the while remaining mysterious and oblique it's what I often want from music that feeling of being carried away by the tone and imagery in a song. Adrian Lincoln had just arrived in Joshua tree when we spoke by phone and I asked her something up in asking a lot of people lately. What is it that you want from music? What do you want music to do to you? The question for me is what doesn't music do like it's really such an all encompassing thing for me and I know that people perceive it in feel it and experience it so differently. And I suppose there's no like one one way of experiencing it or no way to know how how it makes other people feel, but and it's also kind of hard to describe in articulate because it really. Feels out of body. It feels to me like it's something that connects my body with the more like intangible, ethereal, mysterious realm. And it feels like a bridge like a portal, and I guess I look for, I don't really even choose a can't really choose harm gonna connect to music. I find it just has to hit like a wave of the dislike wash over me and take me completely to some other space. Actually. Now that I'm saying to, I feel like it's it could take me. Take me out of my body could take me into Cosmo's or could it also has potential to bring me further into my body in a way to so exploring the infinite vast, outward and inward Rome's in voluntarily.

More wildfires droughts food shortages, massive destruction to coral reefs. And this report says that could happen by twenty forty sooner than previously thought it comes. As Moore world leaders questioned the effectiveness of the Paris climate accord a landmark deal signed in two thousand fifteen. Despite all that geography professor Bill celebrities sees reason for optimism. He's one of the authors of this report, and I asked him to first explain the reports mandate is to assess whether or not the goals of the Paris agreement are potentially achievable and the results of the. Assessment illustrate the the might possibly be the assessment as to what in particular as to whether or not there is the infrastructure and physical systems available to slow the rate of climate warming so that we only exceed or reach one point five degrees warming above the baseline level. One of the authors of this report says, the next few years are probably going to be the most important in our history when it comes to climate change. Why is that? What needs to happen in just the next few years? Well, the window of opportunity is open and with that, we need to act in a way to lessen the likelihood of more significant warming and more significant impacts is clear evidence that action now could forestall a greater impacts in the future and what kind of action gimme some examples. Well, the report speaks about potential transitions in a range of different systems. That we have developed energy systems, transport systems, food supply. So things like considering food consumption patterns thinking about the carbon footprint of wants food, things like even as obvious potentially as entrance use of electric cars or other less polluting modes of transport. Even the question of of lifestyle in terms of commuting patterns and trying to sort of understand the broadly defined impacts of one's actions are any of these changes feasible within the next two decades based on the literature that we assessed? Yes, there's an increasing mobilization. I mean, the client for this report were were the nation states that being said, subnational groups, non-state actors, even cities states provinces or international organizations in even local, have engaged in this discussion. And I think that it's in that context of widespread engagement where the possibility for. Collective action is the engagement wide enough and intense enough because the question now is political will President Trump has withdrawn the US from the Paris accord. The front runner in Brazil's election now says, if he does win, he will do the same, which is important because that would involve the Amazon. So what political leadership is left to make these massive changes your study says are absolutely necessary response. Certainly, there is international leadership in many quarters, but also this is not a question that is going to disappear. It is a question that will continue to press because the issues are present and growing. I think what we're starting to see as well is increasing appreciation from a variety of other sectors that have influence over the role of national governments in the private sector. As example.

Choose a Bank that shares your values, national cooperative Bank offers online checking and savings accounts that positively impacts communities more at NC dot coop, slash banking member FDIC this morning, the winners of the Nobel prize in economics were announced. The price will be split by two communists William Nord house, and Paul Romer Nick fountain from our planet money podcast is with me now. Good morning, Nick, happy Eka Nobel day before we get to the winners. We should clarify something or I know we will get emails from communists. It's not actually the Nobel prize in economics, right? Yes. I'm going to try to pronounce this right now. It's the spare geeze Riksbank prize in economic sciences in memory of Alfred Nobel, and that's for a bunch of political reasons. But also because economics really wants to be known as a science. And with this year's pick, they went straight towards science. It's interesting one of the economists, William Nord house is known. Talking about the economy and climate together, right? He's an economist at Yale, and he's been thinking about how the economy interacts with the environment and climate for decades. Now, this morning I called up Justin wolford's. He's an economics professor at the university of Michigan, and he explained his work to me the keen. So I'd is if you leave markets alone, he won't get good outcomes on the environmental side. And the reason is simple. Every time you fire a fuel factory, you're thinking about your prophets, but at the same time, you'll stink it up by greenhouse gases. And so north houses work is about how we need incentives to push us in the right directions like things like cap and trade. For instance, really interesting choice and hell about his Co. winner. Paul Romer what is he known for? Right quick aside here, Paul Romer works at NYU. He got a couple of calls this morning, but he did not answer them. Phone calls this morning, and I didn't answer either one because I thought it was some spam call. So I, I wasn't. I wasn't expecting the Deprez anyways. His work is about growth and why economies grow. And his question is, will they grow forever? And just in wolford's explained to me that his research says, it's ideas that make economies grow him. So I is that infrastructure for creating new ideas is the injury of economic growth. We need attention to patents the number of scientists that are out there incentives to do science, and as long as we can keep generating new ideas, we can generate economic growth. So in both of these choices in Nordhausen Romer the Nobel committee this year is saying this work about making governments, think about how to make have the right incentives for people to do things that we want them to do to prevent. Climate change to continue to grow. That stuff is really important. Nicotine's worth noting the economics Nobel is celebrating its fiftieth year this year. And yet only one woman has ever won the prize, right? A lot of people thought that we might have another woman this year. The only woman is Elinor Ostrom Ostrom. She won the Nobel in two thousand nine and you know, fifty years is a long time for only one woman NPR's Nick fountain from our planet money team, Nick. Thanks so much. Thanks to l..

Happy Friday, everyone from NPR music and all songs considered. I'm Stephen Thompson. This is new music Friday, and we are looking at some of the essential albums out on October. Fifth, I am here with an powers in Nashville. Hi, Hello and LARs God rich of NPR music here in DC I Hello, Steven. So we're going to kick things off with the band swear-in and the album fall into the sun. Ceaselessly abstract. Knowing. Before. Natural. Tweet comex. So that is grow into a ghost from the album fall into the sun at by swear-in. I Adam in five years LARs. You are a fan of swear, and I think I might have heard about this band. I from you really maybe a long time ago. Okay. Well, swearing was a initially and a little over a decade ago and was kind of born out of Philly. Punk scene co fronted by Allison Crutchfield, Kyle, Joe bride, and they were involved romantically and then they were not. And as these things go, the band breaks up and Alison went on to not only perform with her to insist on Alexa Hatschi, but also put out a great solo record over own. And as time sometimes does it, you know he'll some wounds or at least changes them and the band had a discussion, what would it be like to bring swear-in back and as. Nobody who also grew up in punk and as somebody who also came out there twenty is like who very much all the world in black and white. And then like as I entered by thirties, those blacks and whites became little bit Crerand a little bit more nuanced, this new record cut. It does the same. It doesn't view things in terms of like she, she did me wrong. It's like, how did we get here and how can we come back? And so it's a little bit of a relationship record that think it deals more with how you for late two other people in how time changes you? I think the cigarette record, it's really great to have this bent back. It's fun record. So this is fall into the sun by swearing one of the many records coming out on October. Fifth, we got a lot more music to get to next up his cat power with her first album in six years. One. Seriously. You're on the ledge of. And when you. Saw. Excuses folio. So that's in your face from its in your face song. From wanderer the new album by cat power and tell me about this record? Well, it's the first record from Sean Marshall, aka cat power and six years. Her insanely devoted fan base has been waiting for something new. In the interim. She's had a baby and also left her longtime label. Matador. This album is an interesting sort of mix of elements. Schon has done a lot of things in her iconic career. She's worked in the sole idiom she's played around with electron IX. And of course she's made some of the most powerful bare-bones emotionally effective. And you know, just like intense minimalist music in indie rock as well. This shows traces of all of that while returning to a simpler form, she made the record basically by ourself so produced. And it has some really. Powerful originals like the one we just heard also has a gorgeous cover of stay by riana, but I think what people have been longing for is just to hear that voice again and to really just sink into one of the most influential voices in any kind of music of the past ten fifteen years. Yeah, I love this record. There's this really spare area and mysterious quality to it as it kind of broods and searches. I mean, I have followed her down many sonic side roads over the course of the last twenty or so years. And I really liked the fact that this record feels just more intimate and has that kind of late night headphone quality that you can just get lost in even though it still has that quality of something, something self made something very raw. In a sense, it isn't raw. It's cooked, you know, it's and I love how she plays with melody and plays with arrangements. Even the most simple songs here. She's a mature artist and she's making great work. I agree completely. I love this record. So that's wanderer from cat power out Tober. Fifth next up is an artist less liked cat? Yes. I can't actually say the band's name. I think you can probably green it from context. This f. up with accelerate from DOE surgery. So

Our next story takes us to Morocco where China has plans to build an entire city from scratch. It's near Morocco's coast, the Chinese hoped to export from there to Africa and Europe. But the project is riven with pitfalls possible evidence of how China's global expansion is not going to be easy. NPR's Ruth Sherlock reports. I took grand signing cermony between Morocco king and the country's new Chinese business partner. The audience in the city of Tanja watch is a flashy promotional video for the new city. Successful Miller assault of the foam shares wide tree-lined boulevards gleaming skyscrapers set amid lush gardens and an industry hub for everything from 'aeronautics to the latest technologies in renewable energy in all. It will be home to some three hundred thousand people in the ceremony shown on local television Liebau the CEO of the Chinese company, the high group laid out the scale of the company's commitment. We expect to create one hundred thousand jobs and attract one hundred Chinese companies that will create materials for planes cars, textiles and the manufacturing of machinery says, this marks a new relationship between China and Morocco. When the deal was signed last year, the Moroccan government said, the first factory would be built by the spring of two thousand nineteen. We arrive though to find no construction at all. There is nothing here. We cool up somebody from the local municipality to check if we're even in the right place. Is it is this. Shoes us we've arrived. You can see mile off two mile of gently undulating scrubland some villages. It's extremely rural. I'm watching a pharma walk his two cows field. There are some sheep in the near distance.

Some people are okay with the situation and others aren't Mr. fa says, he's waiting to see if the project will even happen. This is the key question, but it's a sensitive one. That's because the project goes beyond business to the highest of political heights. The grand plans for the city were made during a state visit by Morocco's King to China in two thousand sixteen serenaded on national television by a full brass band, China and Morocco promised to become partners on everything from the environments to the military and the economy.

How much besides the title is really changing in the North American Free trade agreement. Once approve this will be a new dawn for the American auto industry and for the American auto worker that is President. Trump's few experts say the new NAFTA resembles the old one. Although with some improvements NPR's Yuki Noguchi reports among other things. The new US Mexico Canada agreement would encourage regional auto-parts production opened up Canadian dairy markets and set new rules for digital, an intellectual property Celeste Drake analyzes trade and globalization for the AFL CIO the largest union in the US in her view. It could also address one big problem with. Afteh it would require Mexico to allow its workers to unionize that would make a meaningful difference for workers in Mexico and their ability to organize and get their wages up, which then by the way, has a positive benefit on American workers and Canadian workers because now there isn't such a huge wage differential. This is a big departure for unions which have historically opposed trade deals. In the past. They argued globalized trade, hurt their members interests by offshoring jobs. So it's unusual to hear unions praising some facets of this new deal. But to be clear the AFL CIO Teamsters and others say they remain undecided about whether to support the deal. Mainly Drake says because it's not clear how the US would be able to enforce the new labor provisions with Mexico. Because if you don't have real effective enforcement, then you don't have anything changing. Laurie Wallich agrees. She's. Rector of global trade. Watch a consumer advocacy group. She says, ultimately support for the deal will depend a lot on details that have yet to be decided and in less strong labor and environmental standards are subject to swift and certain enforcement. The outsourcing and race to the bottom in wages isn't going to stop. She likes the fact that this deal would eliminate rules permitting companies operating in foreign countries to sue. The host government which Wallich says, allows them to circumvent local labor and environmental laws. There are elements of the proposal Wallich decries. For example, the new deal allows a longer term on pharmaceutical patents, delaying the introduction of cheaper, generic drugs that could undermine the changes needed in our country to make medicine more for dual here. But it's the auto industry that would be the most affected by the deal. It would require automakers to boost the percentage of parts made in North America to seventy five. Percent in order to avoid tariffs. Chad bound is a senior fellow at the Peterson institute for international economics. He says, such new requirements would have ripple effects or some parts to that now have to be made with workers that are earning higher wages. And that's just means that the cost for automobiles in North America are likely going to go up the digs three US automakers would benefit because many of their cars would be compliant with the new rules that balances makes the US a less appealing place to make cars for foreign automakers. These rules don't apply if you're building a car in Asia, or if you're building a car in Europe, and those are going to be relatively cheaper places to build automobiles to export anywhere around the world, and that he says, could offset some of the labor gains from the deal.
