The bill will kick off in earnest today as the house ways and means committee. The education comedian labor committee began marking up their proposals and already there are tensions over the issues being voted on for example.

One of the people said the notices signal that a decision on whether to bring a case could be made soon.

"Earns compensation based on a fee, not the commission for selling a product. That's the advantage. You have with Financial Engines. So that we can help you evaluate now. Look if you want to try to beat the market, okay? I guess you know, we can help you do that we can show you investments that have a structure focused on beating the market. Do. I personally believe that you're going to be likely to achieve that goal. History tells us probably not so it would suggest to me that you should reconsider. Why you're taking the approach you're taking whether there are commissions or not so. Associated with the product. You should reevaluate. Why you're taking the approach you're taking all by the way. Here's another quick statistic for you in the world of investing. According to the limra secure retirement institute in two thousand eighteen investors bought two hundred thirty two billion dollars worth of annuities. Fourteen percent more than in two thousand seventeen and check this out in the fourth quarter of last year. The last three months of the year investors, put in sixty two billion dollars into annuity products. A twenty two percent increase from a year earlier the most money in any three months period since two thousand nine why did so many investors put so much money into annuity products in the last three months of last year? On case you forgotten the last three months of last year. The stock market was down fourteen percent and people were looking at what was going on at the moment. They saw the market was down at the moment. And they're saying to themselves. I have money to invest. I don't want to put it into the stock market of the stock market's falling in value. Of course, what's happened in the stock market sense. So far this year the stock market's up twelve percent, do you think you're earning twelve percent? In your fixed annuity product. I don't think. So my point is investing is not about what's happening at the moment. Investing isn't about what's happened. Recently. Investing is about what's going to happen over the life of the investment that you plan to hold. If you're buying an investment today that you think you're going to keep for the next ten years than what's happened in the past three months is utterly irrelevant. What's happening now is utterly irrelevant. What do you expect to happen over the next ten months? That's the only thing that matters and final point Kraft Heinz stock. You heard the news the company took a fifteen billion dollar writedown. They've got a subpoena from the SEC the stock fell twenty seven percent in a single day in buffet loss. Four billion dollars that day. This is why we don't want you to buy individual stocks because anything can happen at any moment. Any individual stock?.

"Fledgling start up with just under three million in annual revenues last year after creating a global company with nearly three hundred million dollars in revenue was acquired by Zohreh DAS, the largest producer of medicine and vaccinations for pets livestocks for it was acquired for two billion dollars. Clint welcome and congratulations on a successful exit for your team and your investors. You're welcome. And it's a pleasure to be here. Let's start with your overnight success describe your journey at a backs when you joined what you went through to bring it to this. Great conclusion. Yeah. So when I joined the company it was about two point nine million in revenue. We had a six point seven million in losses. About half the products have been developed, and we had a going concern and our annual report, and this is after investing about fifty five million dollars in the company. So he had less than a year's cash left, and we were a public company so everything that went on was public and that was my challenge. So in looking around at shoe, how do you change this? How do you change this direction? It was clear that one of the big issues was people didn't seem to care and in finding out. Why don't the employee's? Here seemed to care about what's going on as far as the performance of the company. It was that their interests were not aligned with the interests of the company that was that was the fundamental problem, and they got paid the same. Whether the company did well or whether the company didn't do well, and they figured well. It's management's job to raise money. So if the company runs out of money, it's up to management to figure out how to get more money into the company. And so folks, we're not pulling in a in a direction that would lead any kind of success. So once I figured this out. I decided I need to align. The interests of the employees with the interests of the company and the shareholders and the customers, and so fundamentally what I did is I cut everybody's base pay significantly put in a bonus programme. Okay. That if we hit our objectives. Everybody would get twice what I took away back. And then we I let some folks even set their own pay combination of base and bonus. Got to set their own pay. If we hit the objectives. That's what they would get. And so went from nobody pulling in any direction to all of a sudden everybody pulling in the same direction because in order to hit their objectives their personal objectives. The company would have to hit its objectives. And of course, it changed the whole culture of the organization, and that was really the key to making all this happened. And did you lose any people in the process? Yeah. So in the beginning, I lost about half the company when I cut the pay I lost about half the company, but you know, what that was okay with me because those people really didn't believe and they walked with their with their feet. They didn't believe that we would ever hit the objectives. And they didn't think they'd ever get their money back and the ones that stayed were the ones that believed. And so yeah. So I ended up. Yeah. Kind of cleansing the company and keeping only the people that believed in what we were doing, and then we rebuilt from that point. And how did your I hadn't realized that was a public company at the time because you're really young company for being public. How did the board? How did you the board interact on all this kind of a change from what people are used to doing right? Yeah. So it was the board considered a very high risk strategy very high risk. And there was a lot of debate on the board about this approach. But in the end, they agreed that the old way certainly didn't work and that probably the only way to get the company into a position where it was self sustaining was to do some high risk stuff. And so yes, so eventually everybody came around, and we all pulled together now in doing that and one of the things that's also another picky area for me is the setting of objectives. So a lot of people are listening. This is the beginning of the year. They usually do it at the end of the year as you well now, and I'm nejra go into the year. You've got your objective set. But this is something that is timeless and how you set objectives. And as a company or as an organization how how did your planning your? Directive planning when did it begin? And how did you go about doing it? Yeah. So so it began so I joined in June and this whole process where I changed the pay structure and everything was completed in September October. And and so the fiscal year for a backs a bad time was ended March thirty first so April, I was aren't new fiscal here. And so as we got into the planning process for the new fiscal year, I asked all the department heads. What would you like to get out of this company over the next twelve months? What is your objective personally over the next twelve months, and I let them fundamentally set their pay. I said how much money do y'all wanna make how do you want your career to grow? What is it that you personally want and then everybody set what they wanted? And then I said okay now in order to achieve that this is. The performance the company would have to achieve to be able to afford to pay that. So then let's talk about what the what has to happen. In order for you to achieve what you want to achieve and that's how the planning started. And then the objectives rolled out of those discussions. Yeah. Once everybody knew what had to happen to be able to meet their personal objectives. We had everybody pulling in the same direction. Now, John Dore who's formerly the managing partner for Kleiner. Perkins has a book out now called okay, ours, objectives and key results. That's a program that he learned from Andy grove when he worked at Intel, and it's been used by Google number of other people now, and I haven't gotten through all of it yet. But I I grew up in the old Ambyo system. I like what I've heard about what you were doing in terms of starting with talking to people about what they want to get out of all of this. I think that's a great place to start and Dora Dora some of that as well apparently from the program that he's implemented. But he he disengages the objectives from compensation. Which I'm trying to myself figure out how you do that. You have any thoughts on that. Yeah. So the first question that came to me as we did our first planning meeting is the question was what has to happen in order for us to achieve what what we all want to achieve personally. And at that particular point in time, our gross margins were minus fifty percent. So I said guys the gross margins after at least break even over the next twelve months for you guys to achieve any of the things that you want to achieve. So that became the company goal in. I five minutes a company goal became break, the margins even so then the question was how do you do it? What part does the factory play? What part does the sales and marketing play what part is finance play. What part does HR play. And so we identified all the functions. Okay. That have to work together to make this happen. And then I asked my CFO at the time, you know, how long do you think it'll take? To break the margins. Even she said, oh, man. It's minus fifty percent. It's gonna take more than a year. Hold that thought we're gonna come back at him that you can tell us what how we're going to go to a break when we return we will continue with him and the secrets he learned along the way and growing the value of a healthcare start up to two billion dollars.

"Thirty two billion dollars here to explain why is Bloomberg cross asset markets reporter, Eric lamb, thirty two billion, Eric what does it? So today, we're coming up on the ten year anniversary of the tainted milk scandal in China and thirty billion dollars figure is actually an estimate from Euromonitor for the size of the infant baby formula market in China. It could grow to thirty two billion over the next five years by twenty twenty three which really gives you a sense of the stakes that are involved in that market now at current currently, we're dealing with foreign producers versus domestic producers real battle right now for the hearts and minds of consumers in young parents. So what are foreign producers doing to build market share Howard, domestic producers fighting back? Yeah. The foreign producers certainly have an advantage because they're perceived to have higher quality products that are less risky for parents. And for companies like Nestle, which has seen their market shared quadruple since two thousand and eight in China. They're actually starting now to focus down on lower tier cities. So the smaller cities outside of the main regions, whereas a little more rural? There's a little more opportunity for growth, so looking at ways to for instance, develop ecommerce or better better supply their products to consumers, their meanwhile, the domestic producers are realizing that actually if they have some kind of brand association with foreign cows or production from outside of China that gives them a leg up and makes them a little more competitive. Yeah. So we saw one Chinese producer, for instance, brand itself as American dairy, right? What will it take to change the situation at what point do Chinese consumers come to believe in domestic producers again? The problem is for some memories are still still fairly fairly recent that they're just not to the point where they're willing to accept it. But over time that might change, right. Bloomberg cross asset markets reporter, Eric lamb. Thank you so much for.

"So let's ask him. Kevin. How are you? Great, george. Thanks. Yeah. In two thousand and two silver was four dollars an ounce near its cost of production. We predicted civil would rise to thirty dollars an ounce within ten years. People thought we were absolutely nuts. Nine years later, silver, hit forty eight dollars an ounce. We weren't so nuts anymore. No, not at all. So what made you so sure that the price was going to make such a big move. Well, let the time silver was trading near its production cost and industrial demand was absolutely skyrocketing. And why do you think one hundred dollar silver is possible now solar? In fact, China alone is expected to need an amount of silver equal to half of the global annual mining production. That's just China. The whole world is moving to China. Just recently California's now requiring all new homes to have solar panels. There's just not enough silver supply that kind of demand. So we're going to see a shortage. Kevin all I can say is that some smart people like J P Morgan has accumulated, the largest private stockpile of physical silver in the world more than one hundred and thirty million ounces that's over two billion dollars worth of silver. I'm sure they're not doing it. Because they expect the price to go down. No, I guess not but could silver reach higher than one hundred dollars an ounce. Well, if you just it for inflation, George silver would have to be about one hundred and thirty dollars an ounce to reach its all time. Time high. So we think one hundred dollars is well within reach one could that happen over the next seven to ten years. But we believe most of the games will happen over the next three to five years just hard to ignore the potential and silver right now. Kevin our listeners are passionate the of anything that you can set out to.

"So we estimated you need about two billion dollars, the the the Kobo funds. We were also campaigning with are saying it's about five point eight billion dollars, and to be quite honest. I'm not quite sure. Which of these two numbers is the right number. I think the compared to just to give you a sense a portion of the the amount of subsidies. We give to solar win as about one hundred and twenty billion dollars right now. So we're talking about a very very small amount, and certainly very small mountain. You know, it's it's about what three four percent of global development spending of the amount of spending that we that we spend every year to try and help improve the world and probably one of the very very best things that we could do. So again, very rich believing. We need to know reasons, they did know would start to care if they actually knew so okay. I got to. Final questions for you think. And then Alaska if there's anything else you wanted to that bring to people's attention that that you thought was particularly necessary. Okay. So the first one is. To what degree do you think all ask all three quest to what degree do you think you've been making headway like, obviously, you're you've been successful in putting together your institutes and your work garnered a substantial amount of attention published in otherwise. And so it's not like you've been silenced, and and imprisoned or anything like that. And so are the reasons for optimism is far as you're concerned. And then the next thing that I'd like to ask you about is what's happening in France. Because one of the things that the people who are pushing for radical current interventions with regards to long-term climate change haven't factored in is the reverse apocalyptic issue, which is that there's going to be substantial resistance to the short term costs that will cause spin off disasters of their own. And so the French example seems to be very interesting case in point. So so the first question was how do you feel? About the impact that you're having in the second is what he say about what's happening in France. Can can I I'm going to answer my reverse Bill. The France point is is really a good a good argument. If you ask people around the world do care globe warm almost everyone will say, yes. Do you want to do something for global warming? Both say, yes, then when you ask them how much are you willing to pay the typical answer both rich and poor countries is one hundred dollars per year. So goes from one hundred two hundred dollars so fundamentally people are saying is yes, I do worry about this issue. I'm willing to spend a little bit of money, but not very much. And I think this is the fundamental thing that we just have not been able to get to the attention. A lot of people who are pushing for really really radical solutions. You're never going to succeed in a democratic situation. If you know if you keep ramping up the taxes on fossil fuels if you keep making energy. Two or more expensive. It's going to harm Percival poor the MOS yet, very very regressive and that obviously. Maine's a lot of heartache for a lot of poor people. These are typically also the people who lease able to defend themselves because they're just so busy just surviving of the day today. So it typically has to hit the middle class when you really get sort of eruption as what you've seen in France. And elsewhere, let's remember there's also a lot of other issues and Francis not just because they put you know, three three cents on a on a Lear diesel. But it is an issue saying if you push people too far you'll actually not be able to do the solution for climate. And so you're very very expensive solutions are never going to be long term viable when you predict these is of saying if we had and if he would actually have managed to put a carbon tax on on on c- to remember actually had it Emma critic congress the first two years of this presidency, and they were still not able to get a carbon tax implemented. Of course, when you have a Republican congress. Comes really when you have a Republican president. Also, if also part you just can't do this for hundred years, it's just not going to work out..

"The total outflow is nearly two billion dollars a year. But by twenty thirteen the K R S board and Kentucky legislators worried that in the future. They would not have enough money to meet their obligations state Senator Morgan mcgarvy in twenty thirteen pensions had moved to the forefront. I think people started to realize we let this debt get out of control. Lawmakers decided it was time to make some drastic changes. We changed the system. So that you no longer get a defined benefit plan. If you're a state employee, and you've got this hybrid cash balance plan, basically 4._0._1._K type plan, basically, a four one K type plan better than a 4._0._1._K but not as good as defined benefit plan. Now where? The first to be affected. Police firefighters that are of other public servants as public school. Teachers were spared. Existing workers would keep their defined benefit pension. But all new hires would be moved to a 4._0._1._K style plan. Opted, not your swerving. The move in two four one Cape style plans this widely seen as a compromise. But it's a big difference. And it's a lot more uncertain with a 4._0._1._K plan. Tom Loftus is a local reporter who covers pensions. But how did it go down with the policeman in the firemen? I don't think it went down.

Governor Pathan the we had at that time and continue to have the worst funded pension system in the United States a fresh start. We truly do we made a fresh start is tells us that we as a state are in dire risk of becoming financially insolvent, and that if we are unable to meet the pension obligations that we have people. This comes at the expense of everything else that we care about everything else that we would fund.
