plenty of time at the fabled "playboy" mansion. >> have you ever dated a playmate? >> i refuse to answer that question. >> on the grounds that it may be true? >> it may be true. >> none of it should be much of a surprise given their shared attitude towards women. >> i'm so controversial i love beautiful women, i love going out with beautiful women and i love women in general. people would say oh, that's a horrible thing. >> let's just say he didn't read it for articles. >> thanks for spending your sunday morning with us. "fareed zakaria: gps" starts right now. this is "gps," the global public square. welcome to all of you in the united states and around the world. i'm fareed zakaria. we begin today's show with dangers of war and instability. north korea's nuclear tests and washington's bellicose response. >> it will be devastating, i can tell you that. >> also germany's resurgent
7:01 am
right wing. what will it mean? plus, iraqi kurdistans dream of independence. could it become a nightmare? all that with a terrific panel. then, microsoft seemed to have been left behind ti be new titans of tech -- google, apple, facebook and amazon. but this man has made the company great again. satya is microsoft's third ceo. how do you change a massive $500 billion deeply ingrained company? and what did it have to do with his mother? >> her influence has been tremendous. >> we'll tell you. and president trump apparently isn't the only world leader who enjoys being on a tv show. you will be surprised to watch a new presidential star of reality television. but first here's "my take." the continfrontation between th united states and north korea is in a more dangerous zone than at any point in decades. each side has announced tough
7:02 am
position, issued threats, underscored that its positions are nonnegotiable. each side is now boxed in with little room to maneuver. how to get off this perilous path? donald trump likes to be tough guy. previous presidents reacted with sobriety to the bellicose statements of leaders like nikita kruschev and mao zedong. the united states was always disciplined, cautious. it was the other guy who is did the kra su talk. but trump seems determined to have last insult. we need to tone down the rhetoric and actually adopt a strategy. north korea has one. indeed, it's had one for decades. it is determined that, given how isolated and threatened it is, it needs a nuclear deterrent. and pyongyang has made astonishing strides in getting there. nuclear weapons are all that is keeping kim jong-un from suffering the fate of saddam hussein or moammar gadhafi. the regime will not give up this insurance policy. the you were in kim's position,
7:03 am
would you? the denuclearization of north korea right now is a fantasy. it will not happen unless the united states is willing to wage a war on the korean peninsula. everyone knows this, but no official in washington is willing to publicly admit it. so the u.s. has now adopted a zombie policy, one that has no chance of success but staggers along nonetheless. it means that we cannot make any progress on what is in fact an achievable and desirable goal, to freeze the north korean arsenal, end further tests, and place the weapons under inspection. one way out of this paralysis would be to reframe the issue and broaden its scope. joshua cooper ramo, co-ceo of henry kissing ear's consulting film, has devitzed a plan circulating among officials in washington to convene an international conference on nuclear proliferation. all existing nuclear weapons states would agree not to test
7:04 am
or expand their arsenals for some period of time, say 36 months. inspectors would verify the limits are alleged hered to. other nations would affirm they do not intend to acquire nuclear weapons. crucially, north korea would be invited to sign onto this agreement as a nuclear weapon state with the idea of freezing its progress for now and aiming to later denuclearize the country. he says the advantages of this approach are it enlarges the north korea problem in a global context giving everyone an exit ramp so that previous nonnegotiable statements don't apply. it creates a global coalition that could be martialed to sanction north korea if it were to renege or cheat on its commitments and gives cover to china to truly clamp down on its ally. it also deals with beijing's core security concerns, preventing the collapse of north korea, and keeping south korea and japan from acquiring nuclear weapons. there is no good let alone
7:05 am
perfect policy for the north korean problem. but the trump administration does need to stom the insults, to get serious, and try to find some way to stabilizep the insu to get serious, and try to find some way to stabilize the situation e. otherwise we're on a road that will force washington either to g to war or tacitly admit defeat to that little rocket man. for more, go to and read my "washington post" column this week. and let's get started. i want to bring in today's panel to dig in deeper on north korea. there are of course many other things to talk about from the rise of the new right in germany to iraq's curkurds and their controversial quest for independence. joining me, a former official with the cia and national security council, now a managing director for the bio group.
7:06 am
bernard is a french writer and philosopher. and did i don't know rose gideo editoraffairs. turn cia's lead analyst on korea. you told me you thought the threat in the short term is not great from north korea but there is a longer-term danger. what is it? >> the longer-term danger is once north korea goes nuclear and has the ability to attack anywhere in the united states with a nuclear-tipped-intercontinental ballistic missile and looking at north korea, we are looking at a host of problems, nuclear proliferation. we know north korea is a serial proliferator, proliferates everything for money. it has not yet proliferated nuclear technology or fissile material but they could if we continue with sanctions. there is also concern that north
7:07 am
korea the not worried about reaching survival, but after they have this power or capability to attack was a nuclear weapon their eventual goal is to push out all the u.s. forces out of the korean peninsula and unify on its own terms because they're banking on united states not coming into aid of south korea because we don't want to risk san francisco for seoul. >> so a kind of nuclear blackmail that eventually unifies the koreas under north korean terms. >> right. >> something totally different from what we always thought, it's been the other way around. >> right, because north korea thinks under sort of america first policy or even just -- maybe not today but once they have this capability, will americans get back in there to save south korea in coming to an aid of an ally. that's what they're banking on e vmpblly. >> why is the administration seemed to have sort of -- want
7:08 am
to go beyond diplomacy? they seem frustrated by diplomacy. they're sort of trying everything other than some kind of diplomatic path. >> well, what they're not doing diplomatic path right now because they of tried for over two decades. it's not true we have not pursued diplomacy. we have an agreed framework six-party talks. we have have m agreements with north korea. it's not about getting to agreement, because we have agreement, but every single agreement failed because oververification, because north -- and today honestly i think we're at different stage. north korea is not going to give up nuclear weapons. they're so close to completing and perfecting their nuclear arsenal, having this capability to attack mainland united states with a nuclear weapon, why would they give this um now? they said over and over look what happened to gadhafi. he gave up nuclear weapons and he's dead. this is the only way for the region to survive. >> what does the united states due in this circumstance? >> you know, in the movies you
7:09 am
used to have what's called a mexican standoff, everybody pointing guns at each other e and nobody knew what to do. for 60 years we've been in the same situation with north korea. the north has its gun at the head of the south. now nukes, still is with artillery. we have our guns pointed at the north and the chinese have the guns pointed at nobody but know it's there, the japanese don't have guns but are watching, they have a gun shop in the basement, can make guns in a second. everybody is watching everybody else with their guns trained. in the movies that ends in two ways, everybody calms count and agrees to walk away and kick the can down the road, or there's big shoot-out and everybody dies. the thing that is puzzling most national security analysts is why in god's name the administration can't recognize what everybody else does, which is those are the only po two options. so some kind of climb-down from the crazy rhetoric, we used to have one reckless dilettante making crazy comments on north korea with his finger on the nuclear button. now we have two of them. the challenge now is to get back
7:10 am
to discussions to deal with the real problems that sue was talk about, which are not good, not easy, and not easily fixable but better than anything resembling an actual korean war, which we have to put out of the picture and move on. >> we need something like what kennedy did with kruschev and the cuban missile crisis, sort of find some way to get to yes. >> exactly, to muddle through, create some kind of deal that freezes things where they are in return for not going further and us not attacking them. you want to stabilize deterre e deterrence. deterrence has work on the korean peninsula for six decades. it sounds bad and everyone doesn't like this, but the fact is north korea has been north korea, it's going to be north korea, south korea is different, has been south korea, it's held for six decades. kit continue going if we keep deterps working, but that's a difficult thorny problem that professionals like sue really know how to deal with, not what the administration is doing. >> does this worry you, watching from europe? when the cuban missile kcrisis,
7:11 am
that standoff happened, a much smaller country, north korea, but does it worry to watch these trading of insults? >> it's decayed since we did not take seriously enough the threat of north korea. so now we wake up because we are at the edge, at the verge of the abyss. it's a little late. my feeling, i'm not a specialist as you are, but the one who has the key of this situation is china. china is aiming to have a real world influence. they are probably ready if there was a real agreement with ameri america to fulfill the standards which are required to be a real superpower. they cannot afford to have susm a nuts ally as kim jong-un. they have the key. obviously, donald trump does not have the key. he doesn't have the slightest idea of what the diplomacy is.
7:12 am
you cannot make diplomacy by saying i'm going to destroy the whole north korea, tirr rants and slaichs, dictators, and people. you cannot say that. china has a more diplomatic tradition. they could probably deal with that. >> gotten to this, the frenchman is hoping for chinese restraint of diplomacy -- >> by all chinese. >> we will be back in a moment. when kwoem back, last week the kurds in iraq voted for independence in a nonbinding referendum. the world reaction was swift, the move was condemned from almost all corners. but not by bernard louis henri. we'll explain when we come back. the you miss a show, go to reeld for a link to my itunes podcast. reed for a li itunes podcast. americans,

7:15 am
7:16 am
7:17 am
so, bernard, this is something that everybody disliked. but the kurds decided that they were going to have a road to become independent, huge majority was in favor, everybody has condemned it, including the united states, which has been the staunchest ally of the kurds. why is it a good idea? >> e it's such a miscalculation, america and france. we have people there who is our natural lyle who proposes to build a true democracy. it would be or it will be the democracy in the area, and we are shy and we say don't, and we support this failed state, this no state, which is iraq, and we embolden turkey, iran, and iraq to take strong steps e against
7:18 am
this little kurdistan. it is frankly a shame. and for west, it is a huge mistake. and i was in irbil day before yesterday. i was there. i was one of the international observers for this referendum, which by the way was a good referendum. according to international standards, it was a fair vote. and from inside, it is so impossible to explain. the situation of the kurds today somehow reminds me of israel in 1948. 7 million people besieged by 160 millionsing of enemy, of rogue states. iran, as far as i know, is still not a democracy. turkey is less and less a democracy. the turkey of erdogan.
7:19 am
and no one supports them. this loneliness of the kurds is frankly for me and for any democrats who listen to us should be heartbreaking. >> and you have a great film about the peshmerga, the fighters who have fought against isis with the united states. >> they fought for us. they wear their shield, they wear the sword, they wear the rampart of the west, and instead of rewarding them for their sacrifice, we close the door to them when they want to come in the club of the democracies. >> anything that erdogan, the mullahs and the iraqi shia hate, there must be something good about this. >> i think bernard is correct about the tragic history of the kurds and the bad treatment they of gotten in the past, and in a just world they would deserve a better life, a unified community, but the world doesn't necessarily run according to ideals and the fact is they're scattered among several
7:20 am
different countries which -- >> no. the iraqi kurds -- >> iraqi kurdish independence creates a potential problem for all the other countries that -- >> why? why? >> because they feel their kurlds will either want to secede and join the new kurdish state or get more powers and go inside. you've been in the national security council. this is a debate where the realists will say you p ishg ss off these countries around, the idealists say give them a chance, who's going to win? >> i say realists, unfortunately. with this administration, it has to be realists winning over idealists. >> the realists will win because realism is a sign of the times. >> another question for you. what does it mean that the alternative for deutschland, germany's far-right party, that openly praises some elements of germany's world war ii past, has gotten this very large
7:21 am
percentage, the third largest party in the parliament now? >> germany, alas, is joining the club of the european countries with a pop you list ultraright. germany was a little back because of the past, because of the sue per ego which was under head of the german people. today, probably with the refugee crisis, which was so well led by mrs. merkel, she saved the honor of germany and of europe, but there is a backlash, and there is this reaction. so germany is aligning with france, with poland, with hungary weather england, the uk, who have these sort of powerful extreme right. and this is rather concerning and sad for us. >> what does it mean for europe? >> macron was in america last week and he was talking about
7:22 am
the problems not just of france and of europe but about the west in general, and he made this point that until we have policies that give the broad middle classes in the advanced industrial countries a sense that they profit from and benefit from the globalization era, we're going to have deep political problems. and so right now we have a system in which because of refugees, because of economic stagnation, rising in equality and a variety of other things, we have a sense in a lot of countries that this system isn't working well and the mainstream parties who back the system are losing ground in england, in europe, happening in germany too. held on, merkel held on, held on, but the country is in a little more trouble. >> and you see that in the united states as well where congressional republicans have now a 15% approval rating. we have to close it on that. this is a fascinating conversation. thank you all very much. when we come back, sanctions. they brought iran to the table for nuclear negotiations, but could sanctions work against one of the most heinous crimes out

7:27 am
now for our "what in the world" segment? in response to north korea, president trump issued a new executive order, adding to the sanctions against that country. in another move the trump administration warned iran it would reimpose economic sanctions if it determined that country had not met its nuclear deal commitments. both moves are controversial and it remains unclear whether they will have any e fact. but there's one area in which economic sanctions would be uncontroversial and highly effective -- human slavery. that's right. human slavery. if you thought slavery was eradicated around the world and something consigned to dusty old history books, think again. according to a disturbing new study just released by the united nations, on any given day last year there were more than 40 million victims of modern slavery around the world. unesco identifies slavery by an element of ownership or control over another's life, coercion and the restriction of movement,
7:28 am
and by the fact that someone is not free to leave or change an employer. of that 40 million, 25 million fall under the category of forced labor. these are the people we might never see who perhaps prepare our food, make our clothes, or clean the offices or homes we live if. the report goes on to say of that 40 million, 3.8 million people were victims of forced sexual exploitation and most disturbingly in addition 1 million were children under the age of 18. the vast majority, 99% of those who were sexually exploited, were female. and america is not immunized from this scourge. the national human trafficking hotline, a resource center which is funded in part by the u.s. department of health and human services, says it fielded calls from 4,522 human trafficking victims and survivors in 2016. that's up 29% from 2015. or
7:29 am
there are 26 bills up for consideration in congress end intended to end human trafficking and sexual exploitation in the u.s. many are bipartisan. mostly the legal loopholes or put checks on the use of technology. i want to draw your attention to another tactic, perhaps a better one. it was highlighted in a little-noticed $586 million settlement western union made with the u.s. government back in january. western union admitted it was engained in money laundering activities and if ftc said that half a billion dollars settlement was necessary to prevent those engaged in fraud, terrorism, human trafficking, drug dealing and other crimes from using companies like western union to further their illegal activity. and i believe this will be one of the most effective ways to successfully fight back against the perpetrators of human trafficking. hit them in their wallets. as a recent report if a u.n. think tank points out, human trafficking is a big business with annual revenues from forced
7:30 am
labor alone hitting at least $150 billion. the report argues among other things that financial institutions should use the tools at their disposal to disrupt the flow of money from the human trafficking industry. for example, both thai and czech authorities recently seized millions of dollars worth of assets from suspected traffickers. in 2005, brazil created the national slave eradication pact, which publicly names companies that profit from slave labor. to date, hundreds of companies have been put on the list for a temporary two-year period. but when a company is listed it can't get loans from the government or private financial institutions. those examples and western union's half-billion-dollar fine should serve as a warning. regulators in the financial sector are finding new ways to score victories in the global fight against human trafficking. closing off the financial system to traffickers is a smart way to begin unlocking the chains of human bondage.

♪ microsoft made bill gates the world's richest man by putting its operating system in every personal computer and then by trying to ensure there was a pc in just about every home certainly in the developed world. then came the internet, smartphones, the world of app, and microsoft seemed to many lost spop what to do with a massive company that needed a new direction? that was the challenge before satya nadella when he took over the company in february of 2014. i'd say he's done pretty well. the stock hit its highest ever price just last month, nearly doubling the company's worth to over $500 billion. nadella, a soft-spoken engineer and an indian immigrant, faced
7:36 am
the uphill battle of changing a company that was still under bill gates' enormous shald doe. so what did he do? he hit refresh. that is also the name of his terrific new book. satya nadella, pleasure to have you on monopoly. >> thank you so much for having me, fareed. >> you say that qualities like empathy, concern, mindfulness are going to be at the heart of microsoft winning the next wave of technology battles and, you know, kind of becoming or maintaining its role as a technology giant. it's a strange thing for the ceo of a technology company to do. so to start i want to start by u personally how you got to this point of understanding it, and tell me about your mother, who was not a technology person, not an engineer, not even an economist like your dad was, but she was a scholar of sanskrit and had a very different outlook on life than one thinks of when
7:37 am
one thinks of the indian driving achievement-oriented parent. >> i have learned the power of empathy. it is not some innate capability that i had, but it is life's experiences, whether it was my mother, quite frankly, now i see it more clearly her influence, or the birth of my son. in the case of my mother, you know, my dad was, as you said, an economist who was in love with ideas. >> marxist economist. >> a marxist economist and always in love with ideas, he had intellectual curiosity and ambition. my mom, who herself was an academic, was more about stay calm, absorb what is happening, be mindful. in fact, she would always ask me, are you happy? not a banal question. it was like, are you truly able to take it all in? and growing up sometimes i would get irritated, and now only now
7:38 am
i realize as i grow each year that the lessons she tried to teach me throughout are the more enduring ones. so her influence has been tremendous. >> it's an important point, again, from an immigrant background, because i think of my father, who was a very driven, self-made man. i think if you asked him are you happy, he wouldn't have understood the question. >> right. >> the point of life was not personal happiness. the point was achievement, success, right? >> that's sometimes how i interpreted it. i have to beism paint, and go on to the next thing. the thing was to remind me you don't do your best work if you're waiting for your next thing. you've got to do your work today and enjoy it, and if you dent enjoy it or have meaning, which came much later in fact from another very interesting source, doug bergom, the governor of north dakota now, looked at me at work and said you spend more time with microsoft than with your children, sko v skro v so
7:39 am
you better figure out a way for this work to have more meaning. that was another one of those moments perhaps in my mid-30s, and i thought what is he saying? but it struck me as the bested a viles it go. >> you had another occasion to be shocked into finding empathy with the birth of your son. explain what happened. >> you know, i was 29 years old. we were the only children of our parents so this is our first son and we were all really excited, the entire family was, and eve an few hours before the birth, we were mostly concerned about is the nursery going to be ready or is she going go back to her job as an architect. those were our concerns, and then of course life changed that night. and the first -- >> he's -- explain what happened. >> there was in uteros a f s s a
7:40 am
asphyxiation and he's a kra quadriplegic and he's 21 years old today and paralyze. there was a lot of questioning my plan, why us, and a i that right off the bat was all about driving zain from therapy to therapy and making sure he got the best shot, the best chance, and without schooling me in particular i got schooled because i saw her and her approach and then i realized that nothing happened to me. zain was the one suffering. it was my responsibility as a father to see that through his eyes and do the best i can. and that i think when i look back was probably one of those moments of hit refresh that really helped shape who i am. and it's not that, you know, that was the only incident, but now i'm a firm believer that your life's experience is what's going to help you develop
7:41 am
increasing empl wills of empathy for more people, and there's what's going to make you a good leader axe good colleague, and a good innovator. >> i'll be back? just a moment with much more of my interview with satya nadella. he's bullish on artificial intelligence and the like, but i asked him what he would say to the millions of people around the world who worry that machines will soon put athem al out of weather. if you miss a show, go to cnn d d .com/fareed for links to my podcast. for link podcast.

with my moderate to severe crohn's disease,... ...i was always searching for ways to manage my symptoms. i thought i had it covered. then i realized managing was all i was doing. when i finally told my doctor, he said humira was for people like me who have tried other medications,... but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief... ...and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability to fight infections... ...including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers,... including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions,... ...and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb,... ...hepatitis b, are prone to infections, ...or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. if you're still just managing your symptoms,
7:43 am
ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, remission is possible.
7:44 am
7:45 am
back now with more of my interview with microsoft ceo satya nadella, the author of a new book "hit refresh." so you have transformed microsoft and the conventional
7:46 am
wisdom would be you took a company, extraordinary technology giant, but that was floundering, had lost its way, had missed the web, had missed a lot of the, you know, things like that. did you have to incentivize compensation? did you have to give a lot of speeches? how did you make -- how do you turn a ship around? >> i think it's, you know, all the levers, right? leadership is one of those thing where is there's multiple things that you've got to do and get them right and continuously cultivate. one of the first things i worked very hard on is when i joined the company in 1992 we used to talk about our mission as to put a pc in every home on every desk. it was clear. it was so tangible. and by even the end of that decade, at least in the developed world, we more or less achieved that objective. and then, you know, we said, oh, what next? so that's when i said, okay, we of got to fw back and have a sense of purpose and mission as a company, because in order for us -- we can't be looking with
7:47 am
envy to what the competitor is doing for inspiration. we have to truly say what is it that microsoft can uniquely contribute in a competitive marketplace? and so i went all the way back to the first product of the company, which was paul and bill creating the basic setup for the alter, and right there is who we are in our core -- we create technology so others can create more technology. we are a toolmaker, a platform provider. that's who microsoft is. we're a platform company and a tool maker. so i said, okay, let's now capture that in words, you know, which is we talk about our mission, empowering people in organizations all over the plan tote achieve more, and each one of those words is key to us. >> if there's so much data out there and so much computing power that can analyze it, there are some dangers, right? we of soon it in the last
7:48 am
election. the ability to collect data which tells you how people are leaning in terms of their votes, what they might be influenced by, how you could suppress their vote, how you could encourage their vote. obviously this is done with retail customers all the time in terms of what choices are provided to them in terms of what they buy and sell. i could think of ways you could manipulate the stock market by putting fake news in front of people that causes a stock to move down and then somebody's profiting it off that. this seems to me a brave new world. >> it is a brave new world. as i of always thought about this, the key for us is let us -- like with any new technology, the telegraph came wire fraud and we had to teal with it. so the question is how do we take the good -- to give you an example, a.i. is one of the big benefits one gets if you have data. the ability to reason over data gives you artificial intelligence. to put it in tangible terms, in
7:49 am
fact, one of the colleagues of mine whom i worked with when i first joined the company was still there, angela mills, was recounting this story. we launched a new app seeing a nishgs the app store. it takes some of the cutting-edge work from computer vision, makes it available for someone with visual impairment to be able to see. and ang will has visual impatient. so for the first time she was telling me, she can go into a cafeter cafeteria, tread menu, order the right food, walk into the right conference room knowing it's the place where her meeting is, because of ai. same thing happened when we put learning tools into word. people with dyslexia can start to improve their reading because of the assistance of ai. so i believe we should first grab onto all of these opportunities to enhance the human exe poorns with ai while
7:50 am
being very clear eyed about all of the implications, whether it's automation that leads to jobs displacement, whether it's cyber threats, and these are all going to require not only companies like ours doing their best work, taking a principal stance in terms of how we design things, and ultimately even governments in the legislative process looking at how do we make sure that with the unintended consequences of new technology are not causing us harm. >> a final question. when you think about ai's super computing, all these extraordinary technologies, i think now people at the back of their minds think this all sounds great, but what will i do? does this -- what do you say to people who look at ai and the driverless car and say 3 million americans mostly without college degrees, drive a car, bus, or
7:51 am
