Fresh update on "politico" discussed on The Glenn Beck Program
"Patents do for Glenn on the Glenn Beck Program So Stu who do you think? WHO'S GONNA wind up being the? Vice President I think it's become a Harrison and I think that the political article that was leaked the a little early kind of hints to maybe that's A certainty almost I think it's some evidence that he's maybe the campaign was even working with political on some things they were going to say and it got released too soon or something, and now they're like, okay well, we can't announce it now because it'll look too close to the it'll be close to the politico situation. I mean, it does happen. Yeah. That sort of thing does happen the other side of it does happen though to where a online publication rights. This person one for every single candidate they have, and then they do the wrong thing but they don't usually put quotes from the people in it. They might like this head fill-in quote here. Yes they might do. Yes but they don't usually have a well developed quote for the actual. Yes. Yeah, and then they just put the quote in there now it can be posted. Yeah and it seems that most people believe Comma is the choice and there's some reasons for that. Right she she had her a couple of good moments her best moment obviously calling Joe Biden a racist. So obviously, she's going to be the choice because she was right on that, right? They were like, wow, you know these other candidates didn't point out the truth that Joe Biden is a racist. So we must select Comma Harris the only person brave enough to really pull that accusation off with credibility. It's a strange choice. It is from that perspective. It's also a strange choice from the from you know party who is moving far far left wants to defend the police. One of the issues Kamla had in the primary was she was a prosecutor she put people in prison and in jail for all sorts of minor crimes and went after. African Americans too often as they told us all throughout the campaign and what we're supposed to be doing instead is clearing out the prisons. Yeah. We should be releasing all prisoners right now and sending them right back out and giving them back their voting rights and pay reparations and all kinds of the complete opposite of what she was doing. Yeah. So there's two ways to look at that. It's very strange right? They wouldn't do that seems like odd choice for a party in the position there at. The other way to look at it though is it's very smart i. mean you know I think? One of the things you have to do if you have Joe Biden right now is to resist the accusation that you're. Oh, see that you're an ANTIFA member right with all the stuff going on all the justification party has done over time. It's not easy to do something like that. The best defense they have is that Joe Biden is old and it doesn't seem like he could possibly relate to the woke crowd tries to do it. He's so bad at it that you know that is actually helping him voters because if he if he spoke the intersectional language with fluency. The voters look at them and say I don't want this person running our country. He's so bad at it. That people in the middle, right now are saying. I know that's what they say. But look at this guy, he's not he's not an antique member he's like one hundred and seventy, five years old. He's not convincing at all in that role. So that's helping them br bring on a Comma Harris and you could say we're not going to defend the police brought on prosecutors are vice president if they're doing it for that reason, it's interesting strategic choice it may be a good one. I will say this about Kamala Harris though she is she's your. Tara loans. To to use a football reference. You know she may be a talented politician she. She's shown some promise in that in that way. But man the second thing start going bad. She's going to be stabbing you in the back to the media constantly this is. She is she is. She's not a team player. I mean think she went onstage in basically call Joe Biden a racist. Now Joe Biden is a person who is forget everything. You know all of our feelings about Joe Biden because I think he'd be miserable president but here's a guy who has been in the Democratic Party forever. He served as the vice president for eight years. This is someone that you don't. There's no need to attack him that way if you're Kamala Harris but she wanted to win so badly she said screw it and that is exactly what she'll do if things start going poorly in this campaign, she will be setting up her twenty twenty four run. If. They. Get behind. And that will be her main focus not winning Joe Biden and you know she was like you said, she was right about his racism I, think she was right. There is so much more than that out though I know if you're a Democrat that's true it's true but I'm going to point it out because. True Yeah and there's so much more evidence that Joe Biden is a racist than than Donald Trump being one niece one who's always they act like that's all proven like there's complete evidence like they've proved positivity that Donald Trump is a racist will what your proof on that show me what does he ever done that 'cause I'm really not familiar with it they always go to the Mexican gold match against rapists shut up. He didn't call all Mexicans rapists. He didn't do that. No. And but Joe, Biden did say this about Barack? Obama. And that was that. Barack Obama is the first sort of clean. I sorta SORTA. Dean Street American. I'm taking the bright. Guys'll. Breezy. Men that doesn't happen. You don't get cleaned. Nice. Looking articulate African Americans. It's like a Unicorn. It's like a mystical Unicorn of. Clean African American why is that even possible? I mean seriously that the Tony's using bay, it's incredible and this I mean if this was a Republican, he wouldn't be in office Ryan Delaware. The largest growth in population is Indian Americans from India, you cannot go to a seven eleven. Or Dunkin donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. Else, he's not joking not joking. And see the thing is with Biden his racism comes with a smile. Right you know it's it's hand delivered with a smiles right? You know his mic's acceptable. This is okay. Joe Being Joe, because he's smiling as he says, these things. These are just you know good old fashioned. That's what that's the excuse they're using to get past this right like he is i. you know he's a little old. He's a little fuddy-duddy. He does these things can't quite explain but come on we we all know is intent is in bad now donald trump is another sore donald trump is bad. He's evil. He's he's doing these things because he hates people joe is just a little outdated. He just says these things when he says, Hey, if you won't vote for me you and black, that's just him trying to relate to the people and you know he doesn't quite understand how to do it. You know there there's always an excuse for. Joe. Biden. Always there's always one built into whatever he says whatever screw up he has whatever direction he goes whatever one way street he barrels down in the wrong direction there's always an excuse for him. And that's frustrating for anyone who isn't in the Biden family, but it is. It's realistic. It's where it's where we are toward the media is so we have to deal with we have no. and the only thing you can do is point out the fax this guy over and over and over again has been on the wrong side of these things. You know he has been on the wrong side of these racial issues that he has stumbled over his own words over and over and over again, and all of these things are things. That if a Republican said them, their careers would be over all of them. No there's. Is there any doubt about that I I? Don't think there's any doubt about that yeah. I don't think I don't I don't know that the less in an honest moment would deny that you remember what Trent? Lott did what did he said? Happy.
One nation, under gods? Indias divisive temple
"Off. Today India's Prime Minister Narendra. Modi. Traveled to the northeastern city of yoga which was hung with saffron flags and more than one hundred, thousand jobs. He came to lay the first stone of temple to Rahm incarnation of the Hindu God vishnu with believed was born in the city. This isn't the standard fare of a politician pressing the flesh for a photo op. It fulfils a promise Mr Moody made as a young politician to return to iota only when construction on a new temple began. Key. Speech at the dedication broadcast into the whole country he said the temple would be a symbol of unity that the weight of centuries and today. Agreement nation. Idea A symbol of unity. It is not the weight of centuries as Mr Moody and his BJP party see it goes back to the founding of a mosque on the site that was razed to the ground nearly thirty years ago. When we're talking about a Yoda today, we're talking about a very specific place just a couple of acres off the center of town where there was a great big mosque built in the sixteenth century and destroyed by Hindu activists in nineteen ninety-two. Alex. TREBEK's is the economists India correspondent based in Delhi the site of that former mosque is what's under contention? It's been the most controversial. Acre. In all of India. Ever since and the question is whether or not Hindus may bill the temple to Rahm right there and so how did things progressive since nineteen ninety two when the the mosque was destroyed how does that end up as a temple concentration today? It's been a terribly. Tortuous story through the courts after decades of legal stasis and very bizarre humiliation the supreme. Court. Last November, few months after Narendra Modi Wins, wapping reelection decides that the most crucial part of the ground ought to be given to the Hindus go ahead and build the temple that you've been clamoring for these decades. The court noted that the demolition of the mosque illegal in sort of compensation that no one appreciated very much allocated several acres of idle land outside the town to Muslims. In effect, the court just gave the Hindus white they had wanted and I mean the Hindu nationalists, the very groups that had clamored for the destruction of the mosque and eighty is a ninety S. And so what precisely is happening today then so today is the last of three days of the ceremony. Put. In which people most notably the prime minister are doing various prayers, offering ritual sacrifices, and so on. Around the site itself most spectacularly in the middle of all the Prime Minister Narendra. Modi ritually lifted into place the forty kilograms silver brick, which serves as temples foundation stone. Now it's consecrated and all its left is to keep on raising money and build the actual structure itself and what's the reaction been from Muslims about this this contentious building. You know in a way Muslims and everyone cares about civil rights and the secular foundation of India knows what to say no. One's happy about it. firebrand Muslim leader in Parliament Assadi. Noisy has criticized the prime minister going to a religious event and it's indeed striking that the prime minister should be there on the temple grounds with a bunch of priests and Politicos all mixed in as if they were a single class, it's shocking if you've been sleeping under a rock as India's changed in recent years and in fact, I was Struck that there have been no mass protests by Muslim groups either after the Supreme Court's decision last November nor today it doesn't mean they're happy about it. But at this point, the thing to protest, we talked a lot about Narendra Modi's brand of Hindu nationalism I. Guess This is kind of a pinnacle. Then for his aims I mean what? What does this mean for him and his party it is a pinnacle of sorts but I think it's more important to look at this as the end of a long first stage of Hindu nationalism. Movement. In India. We're looking at something more like a capstone than a foundation stone and at the same time this date August fifth was chosen for quite obvious reason. It's the first anniversary of this government very bold move to strip the state of jump in Kashmir India's only Muslim state a year ago of its status as a state and rule it directly from Delhi that was one of the main three goals that the Hindu nationalist movement had till. Now now, the third of those goals creating a uniform civil code that would bind. Muslim family law into line with Hindu and secular family law governs most of the rest of India is a less inspiring goal and it's been half accomplished. Already what Mr Moody is going to need in future is another another series of rallying cries like build the temple and where he's GonNa find them it's just not obvious at this point. So today's ceremony is is not a cause for for great triumph. This is this is not the the the end of this long road for the Jay he's hindu-nationalist goals and therefore mission accomplished. This is a triumph. Yes. By all rights Mr, Modi a good one to be taking the victory lap for his party is ideologically movement but that's also very backwards looking Mr Moody was elected with a terrific share of the parliamentary seats in two thousand fourteen in the first place. Because of these hindu-nationalist goals which attracted the devotion of his base, but because Indians were eager for change for economic development and good technocratic governance of a sort that he seemed specially poised to offer, there are various reforms for which he and his government can claim credit over the past six years. But there are many many more disappointments and in particular over the past two years say before the covid nineteen pandemic and then much much worse since it's begun, India's facing an economic crisis, it's every indicator is worse than they've been in a generation. So there's GonNa be a very strongly felt need. A week the opposition to come up with some way of rallying the country some nationalistic theme or series of themes to distract from the sort of impasse in India finds itself had economically this Hindu. Nationalist ideology offers no guidance towards what India's trade policy ought to be say or how environmental law to be fixed or scrapped. They've got a steady ideology, but it's not tacked onto any particular policies at this point i. think that the government we have in place right now strong government but in dark turbulent times is going to be almost desperate to find something to replace the impetus with. Altogether, though these changes that have already gone through, do you think it chips away at the basis of modern India's government? The the idea that religion shouldn't be a part of it. Yeah I think that India as we know it maybe as an idea we almost to retire Mahatma? Gandhi. Still on on every currency note but this is not Ghandi's India anymore you might almost say that the the anti-secularist of one it's now very ordinary to see symbols of state power mixed with. Symbols of sectarian dominance over the hindu-majority expressing itself often revanchist terms, which is why this template a Yoda really does. Alex thanks very much for joining US Jason. Thanks very much.

Fresh update on "politico" discussed on POLITICO Playbook Audio Briefing
"Today's playbook audio briefing is presented by facebook. Good. Wednesday morning Jake Sherman and welcome to your political playbook audio briefing and I'm Anna Palmer Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin who initially predicted a cova deal with past two weeks ago. Told US Tuesday evening that if there was a deal to be had covert relief, it would have to be reached by Friday. We're not going to pass judgment here whether that's possible but we're going to lay out where the two sides have made concessions. What's left? We figured out in the next seventy, two hours and what both sides said in the closed meeting in Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office Tuesday along with John Bresnahan we worked sources last night to figure out exactly what went on in that close room with Mnuchin Pelosi, Senate, minority leader, Chuck, Schumer, and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows as they tried to cobble together a one trillion. Dollar plus package here are the concessions made by the Republican negotiating team enhanced unemployment four hundred dollars a week up to December Fifteenth Eviction Moratorium extended through December fifteenth. State and local funding two, hundred, billion although dem say they only offered one hundred fifty billion Democrats. Lowered their USPS asked from twenty five billion to ten billion subject to a meeting with the postmaster general today. But there are eight ton of outstanding issues where the two parties are pretty far apart. Here's what the two sides discussed with details from Pelosi. Sweet. You by the Republicans hold this offer four, hundred dollars per week until December. Fifteenth is a big move on their behalf. Democrats are holding at six hundred per week and are trying to capitalize on Senate majority. Leader. Mitch. McConnell. Suggesting that Republicans may agree to a six hundred per week you I plan. Republicans also want to include the return to work credit. They tabled this conversation noting they were too far apart plsy said in the meeting quote I'm not going to tell single moms good news the pandemic continues and we cut your benefit Republicans have significant disagreements with Democrats on election funding. Schumer reminded the room it's up to each state to decide how the money is spent. One Funny Moment Mnuchin noted he Wasn't an electoral ballot expert and Pelosi said, well, it's good. You don't know what you're talking about big pension issue needs to be solved in both sides. Agree could happen in phase four, Mnuchin and meadows told Pelosi and Schumer they would speak to the president about the issue and get back to them. Pelosi called pensions quote a different breed of cat and suggested the difference couldn't be split between the two parties. Education there is still a ways to go on this topic they've disagreement on the top line and how it's allocated semantics but important Republicans say that education should be counted as a state and local funding issue and Democrats say this is nonsense. This was the cause of a disagreement between Pelosi Meadows in the meeting. Childcare dams are at fifty billion dollars, Republicans or fifteen billion dollars. So the two sides have a ways to go negotiators decided to move on from discussing this the two sides tabled their discussion on the US Postal Service although Schumer passed out newspaper stories about how the postal service is severely underfunded. Broadband Democrats are analyzing a proposal that Republicans brought. It seems as if there will be an agreement here, food assistance stamp there is a big gap to make up here and the two sides fought bitterly. Rent and Homeowners Assistance Republicans. Propose. Eviction Moratorium and Democrats didn't like it and fought over it. They think there's more to be done here testing. Ways to go here but they seem to want to come to a conclusion Democrats are selling their plan as being conservative centralizing power to the states to test. Democrats. Suggested the GOP was too bureaucratic and Pelosi said the administration had failed in testing and the Democrats plan should be put into place. We have a huge testing problem we've failed she said at. The End Metro said, we're making little progress. They're still a three point, four, trillion dollar donkey or elephant in the room, and there will be no number close Pelosi, said it's a Beautiful Swan hears driving today the negotiators meeting with the Postmaster General at three thirty. When he leaves, they'll continue to negotiate Mike Pompeo will speak to the press at ten am. After all this pressure about unemployment. Insurance Martha.

Washington Scrambles to Pass Second Potential COVID-19 Stimulus Package
"Is so typical of the way Washington works. We have the Special Federal Supplemental Corona Virus Unemployment compensation. Coming to an end in a week. And just today. The politico's are starting to try to figure out. If they're going to offer any kind of replacement what it'll be, it will work and all the rest very very last minute. And I. Think part of it is that. Political leaders and elected officials live in a bubble. I live in the world of hardship that so many of our fellow Americans do. And so it doesn't seem pressing to them. People have been trying to hold it together with rubber bands who've lost their jobs who may have been rehired out laid off again, and it's been a really rough. Go for many tens of millions of Americans I think. There's about twenty five million people. that. have been heavily dependent. On the Special Corona virus. Compensation. And it's pretty clear that. As. The Congress figures out what it's going to do. There's zero chance that there will be six hundred dollar weekly federal supplement going forward that there's been in the past if I were to take pat. and. This is a complete outsider. I think they'll end up about two hundred fifty to three hundred dollars. Per Week is an extension as a federal overlay on top of state unemployment. and. Originally there were a number of people in Washington, said they absolutely never never is a strong word. Be any kind of additional federal supplement. For unemployment, never didn't last long as the extreme spread of corona virus recently. Across the south and the West has become a big issue in this fall's campaign. And so you're going to see. The. Congress members of both parties come for some kind of extension. At a lower level because philosophically there was an objection among a number of members of Congress that a lot of people were incentivized potentially to stay on unemployment where with the six hundred dollar federal supplement they were actually making more not working, and they were making working. But having some level federal supplement. And continuing coverage for people who are non traditional workers, independent contractors self-employed GIG WORKERS Is almost certainly going to be part of the mix, and the reason is is that? They don't want this to cascade in the economy with a huge number of fictions from apartments. Potential foreclosure actions against homeowners who would be tapped out by continuing issues with unemployment. The picture on the job front overall is significantly improved from where it was in April, but is still really pretty terrible and new data, being monitored by various sources, both in the federal government and outside finds that as the number of cases has grown. In a number of states that economic activity. has started to cool again after things had been recovering, so that's why. After it looked like there might not be. Another corona virus stimulus law. It looks really highly likely that there will be one. There may be some dramatic activity this week with. Conversations breaking down and everything working doom and gloom on something happening, but I would be very very surprised. If there's not another quite large stimulus law that ends up in hand sometime in the next ten days,
EU court cancels US data-sharing pact over snooping concerns
"A big agreement covering the transfer of European Union citizens data to the United States struck down by a European court privacy watchdogs were celebrating this morning. We're joined live on the CBS Bring Central News Line by Vincent Man in court. Reporter at Politico Europe who focuses on a tech and data protection and he joins us live from Brussels. Vincent Thanks. Can you sketch out for us? What this ruling will mean in the short term and potentially in the long term? Hi. Thanks for having me on. I mean, firstly, it is really hard, Tio every state the impact of this ruling. It's the second time that they used top call has struck down a data transfer agreement between You in the U. S. And this is an agreement used by thousands of companies to shuttle data from Europe to the U. S. And includes companies like Facebook Like Google, You know, the big Silicon Valley Giants. So it's really you know, back to the drawing board for negotiators on both sides of the Atlantic on a time where you know, tensions are really already running quite high between Brussels and Washington. Um So the second thing to know really, is that a zealous this agreement being stuck down another legal instrument used by many companies and many Silicon Valley companies. Transfer data out of Europe has bean upheld by the court, but There is now a lot of pressure on days protection watchdogs in Europe to strike down those transfers to places where surveillance regime regime deemed too intrusive for European standards, so that would include the USO show a lot of a lot of trade. A lot of data transfers have bean dumped into legal limbo by today's ruling. So potentially, this could require American companies that want to do business in Europe, with data to physically put data centers and keep those bits of data from moving back into the U. S. Yes. So that one. I mean the moment we need to let the dust settle on this ruling, But in the coming days, it will become a lot clearer what the next stages are in this process. Early indications from both sides from Washington from you officials is that they want to come to some kind of compromise to keep the flowing across the Atlantic. Just because You know, it's the lifeblood off the digital economy and very important for both sides. In the short term, it will create a lot of legal headaches for these companies. I believe that somewhere in this whole privacy shield presses, there was an ombudsman's rolls set up in other words watchdog who was supposed to keep an eye on whether the transfer of data was in fact creating privacy issues that wasn't strong enough, apparently for the court. No suits, So the outcome from this court is that we've had we've had to re negotiations of this agreement. The first agreement safe Harbor was struck down now we have privacy shield, which has struck down On. Really The conclusion from this Is that the tinkering that went on after the first annulment? Just more than enough? You know, the increased safeguards weren't enough to be The implementation of often ombudsman wasn't enough. It's this I think for a deal, Teo Teo get off the table at this point will require some riel soul searching on the part of US legislators and and, you know, an overhaul, perhaps of the surveillance surveillance regime. We thank you for the time this morning. That is the latest on this ruling out of Europe today by by the European goes

White House Dismisses Reports of Bounties, but Is Silent on Russia
"The white. House is still trying to grapple with reports that Russia paid bounties to taliban-linked militants to kill U, S and coalition forces in Afghanistan and that the president was told about the plot months ago tonight. The Washington Post says trump has no plans for an immediate response because he quote does not believe the reports. Reports are true or actionable. According to two senior administration officials this morning on social media, trump again dismissed the issue calling it quote just another made up by fake news tale that is told only to damage me and the Republican Party just another hoax hours later, the praise the president made his first public comments about the Intel echoing his administration's lied about not having been briefed because the information had not been verified. We never heard about it because intelligence never found it to be. Of the of that a level where it would rise to that I'm sure I don't see many things that they don't think rose to the occasion. This didn't rise to the occasion and from what I hear. And I hear it pretty good. The intelligence people didn't even many of them didn't believe it happened at all. I think it's a hoax. I think it's a hoax by the newspapers and the Democrats. This was something that never got presented to me and they know that never got presented because it didn't rise to that level. Trump's national security advisor and press secretary offered reports. The slightly different take on why trump wasn't informed about. The Intel appeared to focus on one unnamed Diana staffer. The person decided. Early on whether the president should be briefed on this in the Oval in the oval tells briefing was his career senior career civil servant. Officer I and she made that decision because she didn't have confidence in the intelligence that came up and we had this. Ron Telling we started an interagency process to look at options so that if the if the intelligence turned out to be verified, if it could be corroborated, then we'd have options to go to the president with it was a career. CIA officer with more than thirty years a tenure who made the decision not to brief up in the national security adviser agreed with that decision. That was the right decision to make at this moment as I speak to you, it is still unverified. Today the Senate intelligence. Committee became the latest group of lawmakers to get a briefing on the from the administration on the bounty plot. A new report in politico says quote. Top White House officials confirmed lawmakers this week that the Russian bounty intelligence was included in trump's dealing written brief in late February Capitol Hill. Sources say even though it had not been briefed to the president orally by that point, the article does not. Not Specify which lawmakers received this information. The gang of eight members of Congress who the administration usually keeps in the loop on critical national security matters are still hoping to get their own briefing from the director of the CIA the Director of the National Director of National Intelligence and the head of the National Security Agency that meeting had been scheduled to take place today, but this morning it was postponed until tomorrow.

Trump says U.S. will break off ties with World Health Organization
"Twelve president trump is no fan lately of the World Health Organization blaming them for the international response the pandemic and now the president is cutting ties with the group I spoke via Skype with politico White House reporter Daniel Lippman president trump has threatened to cut off funding before any at all to do use but this is a formal step of withdrawing the US from the WHL after they didn't really have good warning systems about how bad this pandemic would be president trump believes that China has been to influential at the W. H. O. and that the W. H. O. is in China's pocket because of that is the president also taking a side swipe at China at the same time it definitely is this was expected to touch more on Hong Kong and he didn't talk about Hong Kong too much he did touch on the democracy roll back if you can say the freedom roll back in Hong Kong by the Chinese Communist Party but he is kind of using W. H. O. as a vehicle to attack China and blaming them for the virus even though the US has weighed more deaths than other countries and president trump talks about that China travel ban but actually most of the cases in the U. S. came from Europe then you come from China was it also a matter of money in some ways yes but we actually don't give too much to the W. H. O. we are a big donor to the WHO's gonna have problems filling that money hole but this is not gonna act actually save us money in the end we actually don't want to be cutting health spending because we don't have countries around the world have health systems that are failing and so we're shifting that money around to other organizations in the U. S. government to spend on kind of similar uses what could this mean now for the global response to covert nineteen from here on out well there has not been much global coordination of the world's response so this is another blow to that you had it former CDC director Tom Frieden condemning this as something that is not going to actually help matters and many Democrats think that well the WHO's not perfect you don't want to withdraw from them in the middle of pandemic major rivers of membership later on but right now it's kind of all hands on deck in in many health experts views again that's politico White House reporter Daniel Lippman
Whats the next disaster we need to prepare for now?
"This came out of nowhere. You may not in fact be shocked when I tell you that. Lots of people predicted this from scientists to doctors to past presidents who even prepared for it to billionaire philanthropists who gave Ted talks and science fiction writers who wrote books a lot of people predicted a pandemic but the United States. And if we're being fair about a lot of countries including US still weren't ready the pandemic we're living through right. New is one of a number of scenarios that worry analysts and scientists. It's a low probability high consequence event that means it probably won't happen in any given year but over years and decades it gets far more likely and if we're not ready just like we weren't ready for this one. It can be devastating. So what exactly are the threats that we should be preparing for now as we deal with the pandemic what worries the giant intelligence apparatus to the south of US and other intelligence agencies around the world? I mean look. It's been a few months of nonstop virus anxiety so we figured we should maybe find you something new to worry about your welcome. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings and this is the big story. Garrett graff is a writer with politico who put together a very interesting list hi Garrett I think for having me no problem we uh we. We realized that had been a while since we checked in with our neighbors to the south and a as soon as we did we say you guys are fretting about a lot of things but just first of all I mean. How are you guys doing these days? I think the mood in the nation is darkening. I think there is both a sense of. This is not going to be a short crisis. Either in terms of the public health aspect or the economic aspect and that the government is not rising to the occasion in the way that we are used to as Americans seeing our government rise to the occasion that Such as we have found bright lights and hope in leadership here it has been largely at the local level and at the state level and that the federal government still seems dramatically outclass by the scale of handle. That's unfolding right now. I mean I will tell you. There is a ton of discussion amongst our political leaders up here To simply ask the federal government to please keep the border closed because I think that the general populace is is. Frankly worried about you folks. Yeah and Vermont is Where I live is actually in very good shape in that. We are one of just three states right now. That is actually has Qisas moving in the right direction and We are beginning to reopen But you know when you look at all of the states surrounding us. They they are still in the midst of really terrifying outbreaks. And the reason. We're calling you today because we wanted to kind of get a sense of what's going on the states and what you guys are thinking about. And what comes next and you put together A very interesting and somewhat depressing piece for politico about something called the domestic threat assessment. So why don't you tell me I what is it? And how did you make it ashore? So an annual tradition in the United States for the last dozen or so years is that each winter the director of national intelligence here the person who oversees the seventeen different intelligence agencies that make up the US intelligence community issues what they call basically a collective worldwide threat assessment It's twenty or thirty page.

"politico" Discussed on POLITICO Money
"Talk to politico money. I'm Ben White and I'm working remotely you might be working remotely so politico hosting live conversations on zoom and today I'm joined over zoom by Adena Friedman. She's the CEO of Nasdaq. Talk about the wild ride. The markets have been on the last two months the economic recovery from Cova Nineteen and what more the federal state governments might be doing to help us reopen. Dina Good Morning. Thanks for joining us. Learning it's great to be here. Good to see you over zoom if not live look forward to when we can all gather again together hopefully relatively soon so let's start with markets. It's on everyone's mind. Obviously you're not the chief. Market strategist or chief economist. There In fact you running the whole show but I want to you. Something that you know is on a lot of people's minds and that's what seems like kind of a disconnect between the underlying economy the terrible jobs numbers. We're seeing the rise in unemployment. What are going to be terrible. Gdp numbers starting this week and then even worse in the second quarter and yet markets are doing remarkably well a pretty well yesterday and have come off lows pretty significantly So my question to you. Is there a fundamental disconnect between markets right now and the underlying economy? Do you think that we have to recognize that? The equities markets in particular are really future ranted so when when equity analysts and investors consider a companies in what they're fundamentals are and what their prospects are for the future. It's really the future that drives a lot of equity values. So that's number one number two. Is that there There's your there's a clear distinction you can see the markets between companies. That are weathering this twice as well and companies that are deeply impacted by the prices. So I do think that you are seeing a distinction in egg returns and valuations based on business models and how people are gathering through this and then the third thing is the impact of all of the government actions whether fiscal stimulus and the monetary stimulus. And how that impacts people's access to capital their ability to manage through this and make sure that they can frankly whether through it By getting access to capital they need to manage through the crisis right now. Yeah I was GONNA say I mean it makes sense to me. That companies like Amazon and Netflix would be doing really well since. We're all still getting our Amazon packages delivered and like everybody else. Binging Netflix and Amazon prime at night. But then you know it makes a little less sense that Some other companies might be doing as well as they are wondering. You mentioned the Fed and its significance. involvement in pumping liquidity into the economy and helping to maintain orderly markets particularly in debt markets. But obviously helping the equity markets to what part of the rise in stocks do you think is attributable to but the. Fed has done. Yeah it's hard for me to be able to give a blanket answer that question but I certainly think that the fact that the stepped in to make sure that they are providing equity into the critical aspects of Connie whether that's the treasury's in Municipals mortgage-backed securities Commercial paper all of those actions. That they're taking are creating a sense a- liquidity which means that then I think investors are feeling confidence that if a choose to Get into stock or get into an instrument. They know that they will have the liquidity there to manage their investment going forward. I also think that obviously a low interest rates are creating an ability for companies to raise capital that they need to raise at very low rates. Which then is helpful towards their overall equity value because at lower cost of borrowing so. I think all of those things are kind of in in combination creating a son of lift in terms of the overall sentiment. But I do think it does come down also to business models so I if you look at the healthcare industry. Nasdaq is the home. About Ninety. Four percent of all is tech. Companies in healthcare is one of our our great segments within within are listed companies and Dave. Many of them have done quite well because frankly their business models aren't necessarily disrupted him if they're a biotech company looking to do research on a treatment that's a long term proposition. Investors recognized that and can reflect that appropriate in their value whereas if you are in some of these industries that are heavily impacted. I think first of all. There's the the hit that they're gonNA get just from the short term. An investor has a slightly different us. Helen the last. But you know what's the short-to-medium term impact on their business against the fact that the government is providing them some some cover and some capital to make sure that they can manage through that and I think that's helping lift the executive values knowing that they do have the government To help them help them weather. The storm right and there was some question. I write about this today on politico if anyone wants to go and look at it. The idea that there may not be another big federal stimulus in this maybe some additional aid to states and local governments. But there's going to be a big fight in Washington over. How big the next Support Package has to be with Republicans to worry about debt and deficit not wanting to go big again and counting on the fact that this reopening that the president is pushing pretty hard and that Republicans are invested in that we can kind of pretty quickly and safely reopen states as conditions merit. But there's no guarantee that that's going to be successful and that we don't get fresh outbreaks of covert nineteen That might require a big federal response. I mean when you think about risks to markets and the possibility that we could get you know a real reversal What worries you The most like there are people who fear that you know stocks. Run UP A lot. If we start to get bad news on how the reopening is going. There's a long way to fall from there. How do you think about that well? First of all we're in unchartered waters whether it's the government having to manage through circle at seventy manage through it. We're all in on wars right now so. I think that there are plenty of things to be concerned about in terms of how you're managing through that on but the thing that I think everyone's most focused on is. How do we create a sustainable recovery? And how do we bring people back together? And how people to start living their lives again and allow the economy kicked back into some sort of fear on in a way that does not create of the of the the shoot nature of what we can dealing with over the last several weeks so. I think that there's going to be a lot of caution should be a lot of conservative but also there's a much more awareness now and and I think that's the one thing we all have to recognizes. We were going through our daily lives. Free Unaware of what this virus was with the toll. It was taking and how fast spreading. It's an invisible enemy really and so I think. Now we are starting to make that enemy more visible. We need to continue to get it so that it's much more visible testing whether that's a testing for illness itself for testing for antibodies. I think that's one of the critical next steps that is is being taken to make sure that we can start to bring this enemy away. That will help a lot because it'll moderate behavior that just also just the general awareness is gonNA moderate behavior so I think that help us make it so that is less likely. We're going to have as a shooting issue As we have right now but the key is is diligence patients on and inconsistency from the state to make sure that we try to do this in a way that says you know frankly as uniform as possible recognizing the state is in slightly different condition. Right now yeah well. Let's talk a little bit about comfortably with reopening. I mean obviously. It's up to state governors and city mayors to a large part to decide when to relax social distancing and all the rest of it but a lot is going to be on CEOS like you to decide when it say for employees to come back to the workspace. How they come back to the workspace and that's obviously a digital marketplace. You all are pretty adept I would imagine at working remotely And I imagine you had a decent experience with that but when you think about When it's time to get people back to market site In Manhattan or other Nasdaq locations. What's going to make you feel comfortable to do that? First of all Nasdaq is a global business. So we have offices in thirty countries around the world and each country's GonNa have its own situation. How best to bring our employees back into the office provide the technology to over one hundred markets around the world. So making sure that we can continue to offer that break service that we offer. We've been able to do that very successfully from as well as running our own markets or come home environment so we do not have to rush ourselves back into the office. Ninety eight percent of our employees are working from home today. We are successfully. Managing markets were successfully managing the technology and data analytics capabilities for our clients around own. So we can be a little bit more patient potentially than other companies in the context of what we're going to be looking for number one is certainly You know the infection rates and the death rates declining the government's making a formative statements that either states or countries can reopen and then on top of that creating a transfer public transportation that allows for proper social distancing as well as it should reopen schools and other public services that make it possible for employees to go back to work and then once they're in the work environment we will create a social distancing environment within the workplace which means that we will not have all of our employees at the same time so we will likely reestablish the split team environment that we had before we went to her home and we will figure out ways to make it so that our employees feel that they have a safe work environment in the office but again we can be patients. Not A re company has the luxury of having that patients and so what we have been in with. We've been working with the Business Roundtable and organizations.
