Why Is the Fed so Boring?
"If we were grading on a curve these extremely boring and wooden speeches given by federal reserve chairs these actually represent shocking level of sharing and openness. This is according to sebastian mallaby author of the man who knew the life and times of alan greenspan if you go back to the early one thousand nine hundred eighty s. The central bankers almost didn't communicate at all with the markets and with the public. They were changing rates. They wouldn't even tell people there. Yeah there was near press conference. There was no announcement behind. close aide. they just did it and then over time bit by bit. The fed began to communicate. More specimens says that it was a major economic crisis that ultimately coached the fed down from it's fortress of secrets namely the housing crisis. Two thousand and eight so at that time banks and markets were collapsing and federal reserve chair. Ben banenky saw that he could speak out and actively reassure markets stabilize them almost immediately by announcing and explaining policies and actions federal reserve was taking. Its super tempting. For central bankers to exercise the awesome power. They have when they do communicate with the market. And there are amendments when the economy is really in the dumps and the need to stimulate it but of course there are two sides to the open communication coin derian case in point the taper tantrum. The tape attention. It happened in two thousand thirteen years. After the worst of the housing crisis was the economy is growing. Jobs are coming back all of the money that the fed has been pumping into the economy for years. That have worked. Things were stable but then fed chair.

SEC Chair Gary Gensler Plans 'Woke' Corporate Disclosure Rules
"Charlie. I don't know that we've ever spoken. If we did. It was a long time ago. How are you? It's a huge honor and pleasure, Mark. We did speak. You had me out for a book I wrote back in 2000 and three when I was at Newsweek magazine believe. Oh, my God. Well, let me say this. It's a real pleasure. You're a real serious reporter and you do your work and You broke a story today that caught my ear. And I'd like you to explain who is Gary Gansler. And what is he doing? Gary Gensler is a longtime fixture on Wall Street, essentially the revolving door between Wall Street and Washington in the sort of he worked at Goldman Sachs. He worked in the Obama administration, and he worked at the end. I think he worked in the Clinton administration, so he's been going back and forth. He's pretty rich. She was a partner at Goldman Sachs. Now he's the head of Wall Street's top cop, the Securities and Exchange Commission. Um, and he's doing something really interesting now over the years. Gary Gensler has more from sort of a Clinton Democrat into, I guess the best way to put it as an Elizabeth Warren Democrat. He's extremely woke extremely progressive. And he has some extreme ideas of how he wants Corporate America to act. He wants corporate America to adopt extreme woke. Policies he wants. Essentially every company to environment embrace environmental standards. He wants every company to have quote unquote diverse boards and diverse workforces, and he he wants to use government as the lever to do that, and he's doing that right now. At the Securities Exchange Commission. Because the Security Exchange Commission has enormous power over corporate America. It basically can mandate what they do and how they do it, and it could do that through a lot of different levers enforcement actions. In this case, what he's doing is he's proposing rules. And those rules will be passed by the Securities Exchange Commission, which is majority Democrat now, so he's going to ram them through without any without any Republican voice, And these are rules that essentially forced companies. To be more woke in certain areas in in terms of environmental issues in terms of board diversity, they will have to disclose those that their diversity have what they're doing for the environment. And when they do that, obviously, it's going to be a an object where the mainstream media is going to weigh in and say, Look at this company. Company. X is not his woke his company wide. They're not doing as much here than not doing as much there. Uh And I guess the bottom line is this. Listen, you may believe in these policies if you're liberal, if you're a free market capitalist like me, I care about the bottom line, to be honest with you, But if you're a shareholder, you really should be caring about the bottom line. These are not bottom line issues, and they Feed the S E. C s mandate. If you read the mandate, which is to make the markets safe, poor investors to make sure companies disclose stuff that investors care about for too wet to to weigh whether they should Invest in the stock or not. I mean, this is politicizing companies and corporate disclosure to a level that we've never seen before, and he's doing it. He proposed these rules and they

Condensed matter physics is what is the modern name for what people call us to call solid state physics but i think they want people wanted to include liquids as well so that's why it's sort of condensed phases distinct from gases and the whole point of condensed matter physics the whole philosophy behind condensed matter physics to use the word in a non professional way is that there are emergent properties. That happen when you bring together large numbers of constituents that may be interact via very simple rules. You can end up with emergent behaviors and emergent properties. That are not at all obvious.

They have kids ones and let him play with the tools. Let him check inside your mouth. You check inside his mouth and just make it kind of like a fun thing.

I mean every episode is, but we're going to be jumping on lot of the government shutdown craziness that we've been covering on the show recently on Monday. Yeah. I think it was Monday. We covered the fake BuzzFeed article talking about the deaths at national parks that were not result of the government shutdown and just yesterday. What we did was we talked a little bit about say a worker sewer just deciding not to show up to work. So we'll cover a little bit of that. And so much more this week. We have our awesome guests friend of about three years now, Mr. Alex Mercedes, Alex what's going on, man. The show man how the bins been good. It's it's been real as real as life gets folks. Those vita don't know Alex is. He he's ran for so many public offices. I tend to lose track base currently the vice chair of the libertarian party and not to play identity politics. But he's probably the most influential let's libertarian and the country because of this, and that's right for like, no one who really gives a crap about Marco Rubio. Who really gives a crap about Marco Rubio? He hasn't done anything since he's walked in the Senate. So you could take his spot and Ted Cruz Canadian. So I guess you. I guess you're Alex, I guess those are the that's quite via role. I gotta play. But what I do. So each just recently came out with a book profits or generosity. What what why do you think? This was something you had to come out with now because with the title that it seems like, you know, everyone's jumping on the whole socialism train evil profits are what caused everything bad in the world to happen. What's what's going on? Why? Now, why this book? It's something that I think about for a while like the term profits generosity was something. I coined about a little bit over a year ago when the whole rent, this theft thing was come around, and I did this whole video, but how rent is not. And I thought about how profits generosity onto preneurs ship is philanthropy and kind of laboratory on that.

"vice chair" Discussed on Skimm'd from The Couch
"And Furthermore, you look like you're twelve why would anyone ever higher twelve year old to cover the news? So basically beat it get lost. You have no shot. And he just ranted at me. And it was at that moment. I was like petrified. I'm sure I didn't say anything. I was just too shocked, but I hung up the phone, and I don't know if it was immediately. But soon thereafter is like, well, wait a minute. This guy doesn't know me. He doesn't know what I made of. And it kinda brought out resiliency in me, and frankly, maybe a resilient sated, no hack. I called him every day. And I'm I'm especially that I was really shy person. But there was just something like you. I wanna have a hearing. I want you to acknowledge I exist. So one of the things that I'm fascinated by is you just said, you're shy person. And you've talked a lot about being an introverted leader. And that's been a big inspiration to Danielle. And I because our team never believes this, but we're actually both really shy people. And I think the heart one of the hardest things in doing our jobs is. Being kind of putting yourself out there to constantly meet new people to be the face of your brand or be the leader that that rallies people. And what I'm asking to by as you know, we always say we were producers for reason like it was hard for us. We didn't want to be on camera. But like you actually wanted you were trying to get a reporter job. So how do you reconcile the shyness in you to kind of aggressively pursuing role? It's a great question. I had no idea that I'd actually have to perform do that in front of the camera. Honestly back then I think I thought there were only two jobs in television, you either in front of the camera or the camera person. I had no idea until I ended up getting to NBC seeing just the range of things. So I don't think I thought that far ahead to be honest. You are no longer the the novice wannabe reporter it worked out for you little bit so Lakas through how you when you got your first leadership position when you got to NBC like how did that happen? Yeah. Well, I my first leadership position came when I actually I left NBC because I had a really. Jerk for a boss, and he was what I call a classic gatekeeper. And after trying a lot of different things to say can we work differently? Basically, it was like what are you know? And I left and went to C N N Turner. That was my first leadership job where I got to oversee a team. I think there were eight of us, and I didn't know what I was doing. It was you know, it was daunting that was my first leadership job. And there was no training manual. I none of the media companies. I work for frankly, in retrospect, did anything really to train you as a manager of people. You just kinda had to figure it out. I think that's so interesting. Your path is you've done you've had so many different roles who started off as like wanting to be a reporter than you went into comes role than obviously g into marketing marketing, and then as vice chair, I actually don't really know what that means. Let's start what is vice chair yet? Well, I it it g vice show was as much a recognition of a career path every vice chair has a different portfolio. Mine was business innovation which meant I was. I was there to lead. New new new businesses so businesses either we invested in seeded or turned around so looking for new revenue from new sources and marketing was my path to get there. So from communications really became promotion, especially in the news world, you're promoting people to watch your news. And from there got into advertising and marketing, and that that became a path to innovation it may sound strange because most people think of marketing is just what you do at the end. It's the ad. It's the trade show when in fact for us the opportunity was to bring marketing to the beginning. It was about the insights in the market. Where's the market going? So became a trend job. It became a innovation job pretty quickly. Because hey, we have existing things. We can just target them to new customers. We can drive revenue anew way. So it was pretty it. Sounds like it would be weird..

"Why you should care if someone new joins the Federal Reserve Board? I'm David Brancaccio in New York.

Marketplace's, Nancy, Marshall genzer on the fed beat out of our Washington bureau. Now, let's do the gross domestic product. Yeah, there's news. The US economy grew at a four point, two percent annualized growth rates spring into summer. That's a slight upward revision of what was already a strong quarter. David, Kelly is chief global strategist at j. p. Morgan funds. He says, fine, but has his sights firmly on the current quarter is great to see a quarter of four point, two percent growth. I mean, basically the American economy's a tortoise. Now you had, you know, got this burst of sugar and did a bit of sprinting in the second quarter. We've got this four point, two percent growth, but when we look at what's going on in the third quarter, you know, housing starts is so down. Auto sales basically stole dad. So I think rose going to return to about two percent for the third quarter. So you know a little bit of a sprint out of the economy here, but I don't think it's gonna last since you stay. So essentially we should perhaps for guard the spring into summer quarter second quarter as kind of a fluke. Yes, I think so. I mean, we had some very weird trade numbers which which contributed a lot to this. Now we actually think the trades going to be a drag on the economy going forward. As as our imports go up more than our exports. So I think the economy is so down again, but that's okay. You know, this is an old expansion two. We're in its tenth year, so I really don't want the economy to run to house right now. If it did, we'd have more problems. All right. And we're in that second half David Kelly at j.p Morgan funds. Thank you. Anytime..
