"Back, in the spring New York City with the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak. But recently, case numbers there have stayed low and New Yorkers are trying to get back to a life that's as normal as possible during a pandemic the big museums the met the Whitney in the Guggenheim have started reopening. Some people are thrilled but some museum workers are not hear Sally herships on the sidewalk outside the Museum of Modern Art. A slender man is smugly holding the world's tiniest Chihuahua Torres climb out of taxis gazing. At their phones with directions and digital tickets, they're wearing interesting glasses and have not haircuts but everyone is masked. Harry Allen is visiting from upstate New York and he's nervous. This is his first big outing since the pandemic began just seeing goes, but for employees on the inside, it's a bit more complicated some of the turmoil from the pandemic has crept into the museum. Lay says for her the problems began in early. March at the time it was her job to help museum visitors learn about workshops and activities. But coronavirus virus cases were starting to spike and she didn't feel safe at work. They gave us hand sanitizer and it was I could have gloves you ought. She was a contract worker paid around twenty one dollars an hour but her hours were capped at thirty per week. So she didn't get benefits like health insurance. What if she got sick spoke to nearly a dozen contract workers likely who said the problems began long before the pandemic it's called the fissured workplace where you end up having to take multiple jobs in order to support yourself and everything is so contracted and then you don't get any safety net from your employer laces. There's another problem too at Moma diverse workers both contract and paid staff or at the bottom of the pyramid in terms of pay and. Power all the front facing staff, the security, the restaurant workers, customer service, and educators are all very diverse, and then I would then go to the cafeteria where all the staff eight and then like everyone else would be why Lisa's us that meant when financial problems from the pandemic it diverse workers were more likely to be affected in March. The museum laid off eighty four people in an email. The museum said quote we did not have to furlough or layoff a single employee of the museum unquote that means all of those laid off were contract workers like lay the museum said it paid those laid off through March. Or heard from full time employees who are afraid to speak out publicly for fear of losing their jobs they say, they feel under intense pressure to return to the museum when they can do their job safely at home. But moma has told almost all staff they need to be at the museum. Here's museum director Glenn, lowry explaining his thinking during an online staff meeting. We must show solidarity with each other that our place of work is the museum, and while some of US might be able to argue, we never need to be museum to still do our work that's not equity. opposite. A spokesperson from the museum said, it's taking every precaution and workers are only required to be onsite part time but the workers I've heard from say the logic doesn't make sense. For example, the Metropolitan Museum of art is only allowing certain staff to work in person Makita flowers worked with visitor engagement at Moma but as a contractor, she was also laid off in March. She says, lowry is out of touch with workers like her with his multi-million dollar salary. He's the highest paid museum director.

Lego Fans Tricked By Counterfeit Kits

"Lagos, are more than a toy, their investment, the company that makes those little plastic building blocks pulled in more than five point five billion dollars in sales. Last year, they often sell legos in special kits, sometimes depicting famous movie scenes and they retire those kids after a while making them collector's items for fans and upping their value. But where there's money to be made, there are also scams. Let's go into the world of counterfeit. Lego sets with Stacey Vanek Smith and Sally herships from the PODCAST, the indicator planet money. Tom glasco lives in Dayton. Ohio is three kids and they all love Lego, which is how he got into trouble. He'd been looking for a LEGO ray resistance fighter for his son and so perusing facebook one day I saw an ad for it for what seemed to be a low. But maybe not too low of a price. The exiting was half price just thirty bucks. The pieces weren't the same quality and they didn't go together quite as nicely as regular legos Tom had bought what turned out to be a knockoff. Lego set a counterfeit on their own legos are just these little plastic bricks. You can see why it would be tempting to make. Counterfeits chronic air pot or an apple watch or something the biggest and most notorious. These counterfeiters is a Chinese brand called Leppin. It operates completely openly I mean you can visit the company's website Leppin, world dot com and you will see that its logo and Legos logo are almost identical. But if you end up buying a knockoff, you don't just risk getting a flimsier product you could also ended up costing yourself money down the line if you're planning to resell your legos later on to understand how the LEGO scams work I turned to a superfan Steve Elliot he is thirty eight and lives in Albany Wisconsin if someone posts like a big seven, hundred dollar. People will zoom in and look to see if they can see the legos stamp on the top of a brick, which is called a stud. They don't see it. They'll accuse them of it being a knock off products. The lego community is enormous. There are whole websites like brick picker, dot, com brick link, and facebook groups like star. Wars Lego collectors USA, and if you buy fakes even accidentally and try to resell them, you could get yourself banned in two thousand seventeen something unprecedented happened in the Lego aftermarket, the secondary market, the prices of big sets, those giant boxes with thousands of. Lego pieces they started dropping, and this is according to brick picker. One of those Lego pricing and investment guides unprecedented here here's a clip from the brick picker youtube channel. Now, elephants in the room of course, is the Millennium Falcon and take a look at legal Millennium Falcon Graph when the Lego Millennium Falcon was first released over a decade ago. It was the most expensive legos ever four, hundred, ninety, nine dollars, ninety, nine cents, and then the price shot up to almost five thousand dollars but a couple of years ago it dropped by more than thirty percent in less than a year. By this set was one of the worst decisions that I made in my entire collection brick picker said. In Alkan started cropping up all over the Internet from places like let's knock off Millennium Falcon sets, which, of course, sell for much less a Lotta the Lego fans I talked to you were pretty upset about this. So be careful out there the next time you are shopping make sure you are getting the real thing

Gender Bias Reveals Consequences For Female Artists

"Okay for music to art. How many feet famous female artists can you name? No not beyond say or Riana artists like Frida Kahlo and Mary Cassatt. If you're having trouble thinking of more than a handful you may be onto a major problem in the art world. We've been artists are routinely left out of museum exhibits and the work is on average valued much less less than that of their meal. Peers Selley herships and Cardiff Garcia from our daily economics. podcast the indicator from planet money. How that story there was this? This artist named Joan Mitchell. She was an abstract expressionist. She died in the nineteen nineties but she painted a lot. Joan Mitchell was hugely successful and to our world insiders. She's a big deal. But if you're thinking I've never heard of her you would not be alone. KRISTA LATCHFORD IS CEO of the Joan Mitchell Foundation. She's doing remarkably well at auction. The prices are very high but are they. High in relative to Jackson pollock no way are they high relative to Kooning nope paintings by the KOONING and pollock have gone for sixty to one hundred sixty million dollars. KRISTA says there is no record of Joan Mitchell getting. We're close to that kind of money for her work. which brings us to a big part of the reason that people have trouble naming famous women? Artists Artwork by women and men is just valued differently. Rene teaches finance at Oxford and she and some of her colleagues did an experiment. They picked paintings at random and they showed them to viewers. There's and ask them to guess if the artist was a man or a woman on average the Experiment subjects couldn't guess it was painted by man or woman. Renee says it is practically impossible to look at painting and figure out the gender of the artist but she says if the subjects guessed that the painting was painted by a woman they like the painting less renee looked millions of records from auction sales and she found out that on average work by women. Artists sells for forty percent less than work by male artists and because art by women is valued for less museums by less of it and that is how less artwork by women ends up on display in museums. Ziems at the Baltimore Museum of art only four percent of the collection is women artists. The problem is the same major museums around the country. Christopher Bedford heard the museum's director he says that's why next year any new artwork. The museum buys will be by women the various different filters that we put in place to consider acquisitions nations and have always had them. Placed considerable additions and that system comes together in various different forms specific to the museum to filter the history of art and to include or exclude. Unfortunately in the case of women artists often museums have been excluding. KRISTA says anyone who's buying art museums included has to be careful of what's called the superstar effect sales of female artists represent just the tiniest slice just two percent of the market but of the two percent. Forty forty percent is five women. That's what can happen with the superstar. Effect a tiny number of artists. Become like Tokens or symbols and art buyers or museums ziems or individuals. Feel like they've bought something by a lady and so they feel like they don't have to do anything else but then museums can essentially say okay.

Planet Money: Single Women Are Shortchanged In The Housing Market

"Buying or selling a home is difficult. Even if you are very savvy with money but academics have discovered. It's even harder if you're a single woman. Sally Herships Stacey Vanek Smith from our daily economics. podcast the indicator from planet money. Explain what's going on. A new study just came out of Yale School of Management. It looks at how well single women do versus single men when they buy home or when they invest in the housing market housing is probably the largest purchase. It's made by most Americans. That's Kelly shoe. She teaches finance at the Yale School of Management and she says we invest more in our homes than in the stock market so when gene her colleague Paul Goldsmith. Pinkham recently bought houses around the same time they were paying a lot of attention to the transactions. Kellyanne Paul ended up looking at data data from over fifty million housing transactions. And here's what they found. On average single women buy houses for two percent more than single men but they also sell those houses for two percent. Less women are losing about one thousand. Three hundred seventy dollars per year relative to men because they tend to buy the same house at a higher price and sell for a lower price just knowing the gender of the other party can affect the sale according to Kelly shoe when women make low offers the are treated differently differently than men who make the same low offers. It is an unfortunate consequence of perhaps our culture and the fact that We may I expect that women are more willing to share the pie and share the surplus from negotiation. This is called gender expectations. It's the possible that women are expected to be nicer to be more generous to be more thoughtful. It's the idea that everyone should benefit from. The sale of this House both buyer higher end seller. But no matter what the reason is that is not exactly what happens. When single women houses remember single women buyers they are already spending more buying it higher prices and they also sell for less and guess who they give the biggest discounts to we find that the largest richest discounts tend to occur. When it's a female seller and mail buyer single? Women also do worse when it comes to. What is called market timing? Kelly says that could be because single women tend to be more tied down and in case. You're wondering Kelly and her co author accounted for all kinds of things education. An income age type of home listing agent ethnicity. They adjusted for all of these things and the results stuck so this is kind end of distressing but there was a silver lining there some good news depending on how you characterize a silver lining women on average do better when they are transacting with other women. So there's a tip for single women if you are buying or selling a house like look at doing business with a woman you might get a better deal and Kelly had some other tips. She says single single women are able to. They should try to think long term to become long-term investors because every time a single woman buys or sells a house. She is likely to lose two percent cent compared to a single man. Stacey Vanik Smith Sally Herships N._P._R. News.

The Olympics is coming up next year in Tokyo but unfortunately there's also something else. Japan has been experiencing a critical decline in its birth rate which has led to a massive labor shortage in some parts of the economy. The country is running out of workers and that problem is something that Masahiro Sato talked to me about he's deputy consul general at the Consulate General of Japan in New York. He was my host at the party. We had the experiencing Labor sautes pumped up. Can you believe that there are companies that went bankrupt because they weren't enough workers. Yes that's correct. I Ah I had a difficult to understand that news is happening. Okay so critical labor shortage labor shortage so bad that companies in some industries are going bankrupt because they cannot find enough employees and you might think that the. Way To solve this problem at least temporarily is to get workers to work longer to put in more hours but that is actually not the solution that Japan is pursuing. nope not at all instead to solve its problem.

"And by the listeners of member supported K Q public radio. The time is now six forty six this morning edition from NPR news. I'm David green. And I'm Steve Inskeep. Coffee growers around the world are not happy. It's getting more expensive to produce their beans, but they're getting less money for them in the market, even though coffee retailers, like, Starbucks and other coffee shops are charging more. So Howard growers getting less as the industry grows richer here. Stacey Smith and Sally Herships NPR's podcast, the indicator from planet money the price. We consumers are paying for a Cup of coffee is going up, but the price that farmers are getting for their beans is going down. And they are so upset that the Colombian coffee growers federation says it may stop trading coffee and then. York Stock Exchange altogether, Colombian coffee, farmers. They've been really struggling prices, always fluctuate. But for a while. Now, the market has been trading below cost for many farmers last year. The market was trading at a dollar twenty per pound. But the current price is at a six year low right now farmers in Columbia are selling their beans for just one dollars eight cents a pound, but their costs to grow that coffee is closer to a dollar forty pounds. Cutie gains is a tropical commodities consultant in Panama. There are a number of reasons for this. Big pricing disconnect reason number one we have too many coffee beans because the market is in vast oversupply, Columbia created initiatives to get farmers to grow more coffee that plus some good weather may have worked a little too well and Brazil's stepped up its coffee game. Brazil has had tremendous growth and Brazil is highly highly efficient producer now reason number two for this pricing disconnect. Is falling demand. And you can see this in this strange frothy. Drink I have in front of me. Well, think about in that drink where's the emphasis on coffee? Well, Starbucks says nearly seventy five percent of all of its sales art beverages, and the vast majority of those beverages are coffee based, but Jeffey base coffee based as we know there are a lot of other ingredients that go into coffee and drinks. We have eggnog caramel salted caramel. He's on the gingerbread cinnamon, the famous pumpkin tonight Amos pumpkin spice. So now, we come to the reason that prices are going up in spite of the fact that coffee beans are getting cheaper the cost of a Cup of coffee now has very little to do with the price of coffee in the past year. Starbucks says is increased prices one to two percent here are some of the many reasons that Starbucks cited for its pricing decision rent labor, local mandates and regulations competition distribution. Marketing and commodities including coffee, but also other commodities associated with beverages food materials and operations milk is probably in their Judy says the price of coffee at the ingredient relative to all of these is a small cost their overhead. They're fixed costs are high. So they're not making money selling coffee alone. They have to keep evolving and Starbucks told me it is trying to help the farmers. It says it has invested more than one hundred million dollars in programs like helping to replace trees. It works on ethical sourcing. It provides loans to farmers. The future might be brighter than it seems right now demand for coffee is pretty flat in the US. But it's growing in the countries that produce coffee, I don't know all of this.

So Howard growers getting less as the industry grows richer here. A Stacey Vanik Smith and Sally Herships of NPR's podcast, the indicator from planet money the price. We consumers are paying for a Cup of coffee is going up, but the price that farmers are getting for their beans is going down. And they are so upset that the Colombian coffee growers federation says it may stop trading coffee on the new York Stock Exchange altogether, Colombian coffee, farmers. They've been really struggling prices, always fluctuate. But for a while. Now, the market has been trading below cost for many farmers last year. The market was trading at a dollar twenty per pound. But the current price is at a six year low right now, farmers and. Columbia are selling their beans for just one dollars eight cents a pound, but their costs to grow that coffee is closer to a dollar forty pounds. Judy gains is a tropical commodities consultant in Panama. There are number of reasons for this. Big pricing disconnect reason number one we have too many coffee beans being close the market is in vast oversupply, Columbia created initiatives to get farmers to grow more coffee that plus some good weather may have worked a little too well and Brazil stepped up its coffee game. Brazil has had tremendous growth and Brazil is highly highly efficient producer now reason number two for this pricing. Disconnect is falling demand. And you can see this in the strange frothy drink I have in front of me. Well, think about in that drink where's the emphasis on coffee? Well, Starbucks says nearly seventy five percent of all of its sales art beverages. And the vast majority of those beverages are coffee. Based but Jaffe base hoc- based as we know there are a lot of other ingredients that go into coffee and drinks, we have eggnog caramel salted caramel. He's on the gingerbread cinnamon, the famous, pumpkin Amos, pumpkin spice. So now, we come to the reason that prices are going up in spite of the fact that coffee beans are getting cheaper the cost of a Cup of coffee now has very little to do with the price of coffee in the past year. Starbucks says is increased prices one to two percent here are some of the many reasons that starbuck cited for its pricing decision rant labor. Local mandates and regulations competition distribution marketing, and commodities including coffee, but also other commodities associated with beverages food materials and operations milk is probably in their Judy says the price of coffee, the ingredient relative to all of these is a small cost their overhead their fixed costs are high. So they're not making money. Any selling coffee alone? They have to keep evolving and Starbucks told me it is trying to help the farmers. It says it has invested more than one hundred million dollars in programs like helping to replace trees. It works on ethical sourcing. It provides loans to farmers. The future might be brighter than it seems right now demand for coffee is pretty flat in the US. But it's growing in the countries that produce coffee, I don't know all of this. And this weird drink in front of me. Just really just all I. Copy sabahi. I want a Cup of tea. Sally Herships Stacey Vanik Smith. NPR news. Support for planet.

"I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm Rachel Martin. Now, a story about rice in Japan with an unexpected turn a few years ago, the size of Japan's overall rice market was about twelve billion US dollars that number may. Sound really big. But it's a little bit deceptive to tell us. Why here Stacey Vanik Smith and Sally Herships from the planet money team. The Japanese are eating less rice, everything survey down by the ministry of agriculture. Seven percent of people said they had eaten a single grain of life in last month's case is writing a book about the changing nature of Japanese agriculture. She says the Japanese are eating about half as much rice as they did in the nineteen sixties this decline has been happening for a while. But at the same time, the price of rice has been going up, and this seems like a reversal of the key economic law of supply and demand. So how is this happening? I Japan's population is declining. So there are fewer people eating rice next. Japan's population is ageing and older people. Eat fewer calories and after World War Two. Japan's economy got much stronger. So as people had more money, they ate more protein and less race. Finally, tastes began to change bread and pasta became more popular. And this is where the lunch ladies come in runs. Ladies got together and use their union to protest having to deal with sticky rice on plates when there was the bright and pasta option, and so when school menus were being discussed and lunch lady unions have a voice in this many of them decided that they prefer cleaning Bredon pasta over rice. And there you go. Now, you might think that when demand falls we would see a drastic decline in supply. But no even to this day, I can say ninety five percent of farmers grow some amount of rice. There are a couple of major reasons for this reason number one rice is relatively easy to farm. So there are actually a lot of part time rice farmers in Japan reason, number two after World War Two Japan wasn't able to grow enough rice so Japan decided to pay farmers subsidies to grow rice. So there would always be enough then in one thousand nine hundred nine it also. Slapped a tariff on imports of foreign rice of more than seven hundred percent. But if demand is falling why wouldn't these subsidies and tariffs be killed off rural voters like farmers represent a big voting block and politicians want to keep them happy, but demand for rice has fallen off a cliff. So if you're the Japanese government, what do you do the Japanese are eating more meat like beef and the country's cattle farmers have become heavily dependent on corn and soybean imports. So the government came up with an idea, so why not government subsidized farmers to grow rice that can be eaten by cow cows. This is one of the reasons for the seeming supply and demand mismatch in two thousand fifteen the amount of rice grown for cattle feed doubled over the year before and here's the thing about rice for cows. Yes. So to grow it farmer does not have to put in as much time. In fact, twenty percent less time to grow rice for cows than people rice farmer that grows cattle feed. Rice gets twice as much income for the same amount of rights or same acreage of rice, and the farmer who grows rice for human consumption, which explains why there is less rice being produced for humans so much less rice, the prices of human rights have gone up by thirty percent. Somehow, I feel like the cows are behind this. Stacey Vanik Smith. Sally Herships NPR news support for planet. Money comes from the alliance for lifetime.

But it's a little bit deceptive to tell us. Why here Stacey Vanik Smith and Sally Herships from the planet money team. The Japanese are eating less rice, everything survey done by the measure agriculture seven percent of people said they had eaten a single grain of life in last month's case Shimizu is writing a book about the changing nature of Japanese agriculture. She says the Japanese are eating about half as much racist. They did in the nineteen sixties. This decline has been happening for a while. But at the same time, the price of rice has been going up, and this seems like a reversal of the key economic law of supply and demand. So how is this happening? I Japan's population is declining. So there are fewer people eating. Rice next. Japan's population is ageing and older people. Eat fewer calories and after World War Two. Japan's economy got much stronger. So as people had more money, they ate more protein and less race finally tastes began to change bread and pasta became more popular. And this is where thump lunch ladies come in runs. Ladies got together and use their union to protest having to deal with sticky rice on plates when there was the bright and pasta option, and so when school menus were being discussed and lunch lady union, Abbott voice in this many of them decided that they prefer cleaning Bredon Stover. Right. And there you go. Now, you might think that when demand falls we would see a drastic decline in supply. But no even to this day, I can say ninety plus percent of farmers grow some amount of rice. There are a couple of major reasons for this reason number one rice. Is relatively easy to farm. So there are actually a lot of part time rice farmers in Japan reason, number two after World War Two Japan wasn't able to grow enough rice so Japan decided to pay farmers subsidies to grow rice. So there would always be enough and in one thousand nine hundred nine it also slapped a tariff on imports of foreign rice of more than seven hundred percent. But if demand is falling why wouldn't these subsidies and tariffs be killed off rural voters like farmers represent a big voting block and politicians want to keep them happy, but demand for rice has fallen off a cliff. So if you are the Japanese government, what do you do the Japanese are eating more meat like beef and the country's cattle farmers have become heavily dependent on corn and soybean imports. So the government came up with an idea. So why not the government subsidizes farmers to grow rice that can be eaten by cow cows. This is one of the reasons for the seeming supply and demand mismatch in two thousand fifteen. The amount of rice grown for cattle feed doubled over the year before and here's the thing about rice for cows. Yes. So grow it farmer. Does not have to put in as much time. In fact, twenty percent less time to grow rice for cows than people rice farmer that grows cattle feed rice gets twice as much income for the same amount of rice or same acreage, a rice farmer who grows rice for human consumption, which explains why there is less rice being produced for humans so much less rice, the prices of human rights have gone up by thirty percent. Somehow, I feel like the cows are behind this. Stacey Vanik Smith. Sally Herships NPR news support for planet. Money comes from the alliance for lifetime.
