russia and china call for deescalation after north korea tests another missile during president xi jinping today visit to moscow. italy someone's austria's ambassador over vienna's plans to set up border controls between the two countries. and the german interior minister says berlin is braced for a russian of meddling in september's general election however the country's intelligence service says there's no sign moscow's trying to favor any particular conduct at.
12:01 pm
seven o'clock am in moscow watching all t. international live from all studio here with me now welcome to the program. the chinese leader has wrapped up his two day trip to the russian capital as well as signing some twelve billion dollars worth of deals the two countries call for the escalation on the korean peninsula. has been following the talks. one of the most telling things that they had to say was that day and this was said by both sides the lesions now between russia and china. that may have ever be in the history and that is something that time and time again during the various appearances by the two leaders and obviously they talked about many things they agree don't go up very shouldn't agriculture in space and business in the media almost every sphere you can talk about they side deals with twelve billion dollars and they were all smiles about it.
12:02 pm
says this man who told me that ice cream is very much enjoyed as i promised to my old box of russian ice cream.
12:03 pm
the chinese also said that the will was growing turbulent restless and case in point north korea launching another alleged into immediate. successfully further heightening tensions in the region and here the chinese and russian leaders came out with a surprising solution the side suggest north korea voluntarily declares a moratorium on nuclear tests and missile launches and that the u.s. and south korea refrain from joint drills the idea is to get both sides to deescalate and pulled back away from the brink but washington has other ideas donald trump has urged china to increase pressure on north korea to force it to back down in its alleged again pursuit of nuclear weapons and missiles the pentagon has reportedly said that it is now considering a show of force in order to deter north korea from its pursuit of weapons there is
12:04 pm
already a show for spin by the americans in the south china sea at the moment we're in the position where on one side of the equation you have somebody who has extremely limited experience in foreign policy is a little bit flaky and certainly very unpredictable and on the other side you have claimed john byrne who frankly is no better situation so well we're at a relatively dangerous time at the moment and it's showing the shifting tectonic plates in world affairs that it's actually russia and china who maybe to stabilize the situation. sheeting ping's visit to russia comes at a time when china's relations with the u.s. are on shaky ground that's after beijing ordered military vessels and jets to warn off an american warship which according to china violated its territorial waters in the south china sea kaleb open looks at how things started to go wrong between
12:05 pm
beijing and washington. remember the famous chocolate cake that donald trump used to woo the chinese leader we had the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you've ever seen president she was enjoying it that was the first time that trump and she met with trump putting on a grand dinner for she which also featured trump's granddaughter singing a song for she in chinese. well that was back in april sense then trump's charm offensive seems to a faltering here's how the chinese foreign ministry sees it. president xi explicitly pointed out that china u.s. relations have made great progress in the recent days but they have also been affected by some negative factors a fair few such factors actually like the u.s. accusing china of being a top human trafficking offender child who was downgraded to tear three status in this year's report in part because it has not taken serious steps to end its own
12:06 pm
complicity in trafficking and washington's plan to sell one point four billion dollars in arms to taiwan which china regards as a breakaway province didn't exactly go down well either time isn't in alienable parts of china and the us weapons sales to taiwan violates international laws as well as the basic phones of international relations china firmly opposes it and it's another thing that china firmly opposes the installation of american missiles right on its doorstep the deployment of the u.s. missile defense system in south korea does serious damage to the strategic security interests of all countries in the region including china and russia and disrupts the regional strategic balance well it looks like relations between beijing and washington won't be seeing any major reset but how big of a blow is that to china right now china's president xi is in moscow both china and russia would like to. demonstrate a common interest you can view
12:07 pm
a. deteriorating. relations with the united to space both understand. from administration. a serious fan of uncertainty and very cautious demonstration of. china and russia you seem to be beneficial on the polls. despite trump's attempt to be best buddies with she a while ago looks like the geo political set up hasn't really changed just like under obama the two eurasian super powers seem to be getting along pretty well while the united states is distancing itself and distrusting both of them. are seeing new york. after all the fuss over the administration's possible links to the kremlin the u.s. and russian presidents will finally come face to face the two are to meet at the g. twenty summit in hamburg this friday kate partridge. well this year's g. twenty summit promises to be very interesting indeed the white house and the
12:08 pm
kremlin have both confirmed that presidents trump and putin will meet on the sidelines though after six months of russia and trump were dominating the headlines and moscow admitting that relations between the countries are it is zero however it's much anticipated by other people that this will be the highlight of the entire summit what is it that we're going to be talking about first of all this ukraine and secondly the syria and that promises to be very sorely indeed after the white house came out with the unfounded allegation and indeed prediction that president assad would use another chemical attack in syria and that to which i quote moscow said is an invitation for provocation and then there's the g twenty summit venue itself it's been in hamburg where there's been protests and demonstrators are saying they're going to be even more of them and then there's a scandal amongst the policeman the burning police were drafted in to help the hamburg colleagues in providing security for the event but hundreds of them have been sent home after
12:09 pm
a scandal where the party got out of hand where public sex fighting in striptease seem to be the order of the night and therefore inappropriate behavior was the reason that they were sent back and then this president urges bodyguards they've also been told not to come following the recent time in may when they were accused of beating up protesters outside the turkish embassy in washington so all in all this year's the g. twenty promises to be very interesting indeed. austria's ambassador has been summoned by italy over vienna as reported plans to deploy troops at the borders between the two countries it's all happening amidst an increased influx of migrants into italy artie's charlotte do penske has the details . there has been summonsed over the fact that vienna has said it could deploy up to seven hundred fifty troops to the border with italy there ready to be deployed at any point and it has already deployed a number of armed personnel carriers to the border to the brain a pass which is
12:10 pm
a mountainous pass between italy and austria and that's because austria is concerned about the growing influx of migrants to italy which may then cross its border into austria so basically what they're trying to do is they're trying to say that they will shore up their own borders if there is a continued influx of people moving northwards from italy now that's because in the last few years hoffer million migrants have landed on a tally and shores many of them not wanting to stay in italy and if you look at the figures this year alone the un migration agency says around one hundred thousand migrants have landed on european soil from the mediterranean sea since january of this year and the majority of those more than eighty four thousand have landed in italy alone now i was in the italian island of sicily over the last few days in the city of palermo looking at some of the issues that have been caused by this
12:11 pm
mountain my current crisis and what we saw on the streets there the fact that many of the mafia gangs have now teamed up with migrant gangs and they're actually forcing migrants to work for them in criminal activities such as selling drugs we've seen over the past few weeks migrants being stopped particularly on the french italian border and being forced to go back to italy now italy has just said it feels abandoned it just cannot cope with this mounting crisis what started as a call for help by italy now looks like it could be turning into a diplomatic crisis as countries in the e.u. look to close their borders off with their e.u. counterpart leaving italy dwindling under the continued pressure of this migrant crisis. in fact agency has already expressed their concern over the issue according to it other countries should also share the responsibility former italian foreign
12:12 pm
minister franco frattini spent i'm a scathing in his view of europe's involvement in solving the migrant crisis which is unsustainable situation prime minister genteel oh nice trying to promote european soli darity but unfortunately the reason these grigg a show of european union all round even the beatles are bassy. util unfortunately grooving completely useless on helping on solving the migraine dries today unfortunately due weakness of european institutions and national. leading to eyes only. be the mediterranean these is simply not acceptable we soul few days ago. i told him people to bowl before hollows
12:13 pm
where some my grounds are. located still some a.p. still all of violent told iran's could be absolutely wrong but the response by extremist group that it needs only fighting against any kind a welcome in my gran's any kind of. so a very wrong response to a roman solution for decades on migrations ronnie's after the break so don't go away. people with stories to tell are on the models who deserve to be heard from in all our. stuff inside. it still
12:14 pm
was unusual centrists alcohol abusers the systems you see first and witnesses believe they're here to speak are you there to hear. global war hawks sell you on the idea that dropping bombs brings peace to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battle is going. to do stop for the tell you that what we gossip the public but most important is the. mother off the bad guys and tell me you are not cool enough and let's fight their products. all the hawks that we along the border will watch.
12:15 pm
welcome back to the program germany's interior minister says the country expects russia to interfere in september's general election peeta on the floor has more to tell. interior minister thomas to marry as they were speaking at a press conference the room where he said that in his opinion russia will try and influence the twenty seventeen general election here in germany he said that he expects data that was stolen during a computer on the bundestag back in twenty fifteen will be made public over the coming weeks now back in twenty fifty when that happened all fingers of blame were pointed out of russia however still no proof of an investigation was proved that it had to be a russia had any involvement in that such a long sight him at the same time was hans mohsen he's the head of germany's interior security services the bear file very similar in many ways to say m i five in the u.k. or the f.b.i.
12:16 pm
in the united states he said that there wasn't any indication that russia would try to influence any particular or support any particular counted it or party which then clover or begs the question why would they do it in the first place it's a lot of effort to go into to influence and try and change the outcome of somebody's election if you have no particular care over who comes out on top is the winner in the end of the who hands your musson heads up also issued a report of which they list russia as one of the top three cyber security risks to germany but if we cast our minds back to you to february of this year just a few months ago the german security services issued a report in which they said there was no air. dence that russia was attempting to undermine the government of angela merkel this all brings us back to what we've seen in the united states previously in france as well where there are elections
12:17 pm
following their actions and even in the lead up there were claims that russia was trying to influence those votes well despite there being some serious allegations made and some of those allegations being made under oath there's been no investigation and no proof that anything actually took place so be keeping an eye and seeing what more comes out of the interior minister here in germany and to mr marson the head of internal security just to see what if they come up with any evidence for their claims that russia may be trying to influence the twenty seventeen german general election and they have an m.p. for the left party says such accusations and nothing but the german government's paranoia. my government. last year and there was no real proof of these allegations. or general you say what we heard today was. a
12:18 pm
lead. cyber attack. on the democratic party in the us last year. and some of the expect. this will happen in germany but far i cannot see any. evidence any new proof so this is a. hope that the german public will not all too much. now there's just hours left for qatar to decide on whether to submit to an ultimatum from a saudi led bloc that sanctioned the gulf state the deadline now expired at midnight on tuesday after it was extended by forty eight hours let's take a closer look at the demands put forward by saudi arabia bahrain egypt and the emirates the bloc wants qatar to cut its ties with iran and militant groups named
12:19 pm
by the saudis and their allies as terrorists qatar has also been told to shut down a turkish military base on its territory the thirteen point list includes a demand for qatar to close all of its international news outlets including al-jazeera and the saudi led bloc wants doha to cease contacts with political opposition groups in their countries qatar officials have spoken out in defiance of the ultimatum. this list of. demands made to be rejected it's not made to be accepted or not made to be negotiated is not an easy country to be swallowed by the one. we already we started to the food was good three. if you look on the map a you can see that qatar is a small country it may be a small country but it is significant it's a significant regional power player the us has two military facilities near one of
12:20 pm
which is washington's largest base in the middle east turkey's first military base in the region is also in qatar with the two nations often holding joint drills across the gulf is iran and it shares the world's biggest natural gas field with qatar doha has been criticized by the side led long for its cooperation with tehran i discussed the crisis with london based professor money and retired saudi navy commodore up to lefty for him. we should expect and we should look at this situation that it's beyond al jazeera or qatar for that matter i think the fight against radicalism doesn't stop at financing i think we've reached a stage that we need to accept in specific is the problem in both countries both protagonists and that it has failed as an ideology for both countries and by that i mean saudi arabia and qatar in terms of the demands themselves i think. it
12:21 pm
reminds us by our strong before the world war for more where they were given ten points serbia rejected nine out of the ten that's how the first world war began i don't know clea the people of the closer to the saudis regarding the the wheel fly for social so even social behavior and many of the qataris are descended to full for family. families from saudi arabian tribes from saudi arabia there's a very very high respect for the for the qatari people so did you and the other got to stay didn't board cut and we did a blockade qatar i mean qatar was free to fly that of lawyers to any other place other than these four countries but we are having just two to. think. relations with the others have to change you know have to waltz the matches if we look at saudi arabia's foreign minister you've talked about having
12:22 pm
a high respect for the qatari people yet the saudi arabia's foreign minister says quote the measures adopted against guitar intended to change policies as these policies harm and i suppose some an international perspective why is riyadh deciding what's best for cut tall taught as continuing to. to actually you know have a public relation to god of being a god of being good a list organizations that are harming saudi arabia i mean directly general called me old school a little bit but i think frankly the only way to do this in the tribal diplomacy fashion is to have a sit down and in my view instead of escalation in this sense of pride and humiliation i think maybe an invitation or something to tell me more of the foreign minister and just having to sit down instead of this public i think you know discussion where you know the u.s. government is involved and president trump is saying something in his secretary of
12:23 pm
state to say something else than ever exactly exactly. exiled them into riyadh and just have this discussion you know how it is we you know are saying in the region is that when you give me advice in front of the public you're condoning me so it seems to me that we can exactly how this is one or more people getting involved both obviously agreed in this fight against terrorism and you. very difficult diplomatic but we can't ignore the fact that saudi itself has been accused of sponsoring terrorism so some may view again these extreme public demands the come from the saudi led group as being rather hypocritical saudi arabia have. played a very very big part look only in saudi arabia but on the war to to fight terrorism and saudi arabia is one of the most successful country in for a fight and fighting terrorism we did we did it is
12:24 pm
a very witty very very very heavily truth be said i think everyone made mistakes or we need to do is look at syria which is still a festering wound for all of us and as we know the us russia everyone now has. pulled into that conflict but yes there has been a joint command. operation between qatar saudi the us and others there's been money used and so on at least as far as the intelligence reports suggest mistakes have been. over to portugal now where the president has admitted a military warehouse close to the capitalist been has been raided officials haven't given any specific details although leaks have emerged claiming to state the amount of weaponry and munitions that have gone missing the president called for an investigation adding it's not the first rate of its kind. we must really investigate all the facts similar incidents have been reported in other native
12:25 pm
countries over the past two years newspaper reports suggest more than one hundred fifty grenades were taken out of a huge range of equipment stored in the warehouse hundreds of bullets and units of plastic explosives were also taken. the country's defense minister has warned that the weapons are likely to find their way onto the black market and nato report stated back in twenty eleven that if such a thing was to happen weapons and munitions would likely be used in terror plots a former commander of the british army's chemical defense regiment told us portugal needs to make sure that the stolen i mean it doesn't fall into the wrong hands. it's a significant amount. and if it is any bolt then it's a concern i think the primary concern is that they're all you know. the next place on the streets. across europe may fall into the hands of terrorists.
12:26 pm
should be well documented how much. security seems to be very lax that there may be so indiscretions and so i don't it's missing so we must make sure that the security of all these places is absolutely is getting to ensure that we minimize the terrorists get hold of these weapons now. look at the negative side of tourism and some of the most popular either painful to .
12:27 pm
put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be present. want. to go right. this is what the three of them will be good. interested always in the water. it. seems wrong. you get to shape out just. to add to it and it. equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart. choose to look for common ground.
12:28 pm
the city has a hollywood backdrop the glamour is attracting even more tourists they may well bring in more money than cruise passengers who might buy an ice cream before scooting back to the ship and that all inclusive accommodation this sort of tourism in particular makes it difficult for cities to develop alternative concepts as villa well knows she's researched the issue in other european cities as well. honestly no mentioning that out of a question but it's a problem a muslim. center must form and yes that's an accomplishment of the would only come
12:29 pm
in their mission with us to. solve them a vision. probably a global and talk coffee cup if only in the bush was up her own sons and i suppose it's in the in a to toss me school you have a minister that's send them of their own interest as only one language school governance and that was sufficient of a management of almost finished month regret comic account or going these artists could post on the ng and these are. neck and neck of style nason in the. but what if the city no longer exists as a communal place for its inhabitants if it increasingly becomes a travel destination with global marketing potential what sort of inhabitants would the city then. either i mean i was missing something valuable probably a cultist to not sell something about them or try. to. put their own mentor by you'll meet is nice tenets it. makes you not accepting the delegates.
12:30 pm

a monday night and doesn't last and i feel it. up with smoke at the minute. help another motorist. the city is an exception there are a job c.-a across the country a third of young people are unemployed in dubrovnik though tourism has completely disrupted social and economic structures the tourist guide here can earn more than a professor a cleaner more than a teacher who can blame young people from wanting to be on the winning side. yes because the apes they fed us of the wood on the yet provided keep it indeed a spy at boyish that settled on the custom my brother acosta caught on board sat yet but if you know what all the others company mirasol to get out i'll see it all along that he made a little eco call a proposal like it out of a soil play almost. but it's me but on the morrow i'll see it tonight as a friend or a courier joining in here should god always. get
12:33 pm
a magic an outside. cola culture as a souvenir memories of the city merged with the brand what sucked woods to enterprise to brother nick. leppitsch i. don't talk about numbers it took about. power. but who's power is it how self determined can the city remain that increasingly sells itself the danger of being controlled by international investors and consortium's is great but it's also in the nature of democratic cities that the citizens fight back. the venetians who remain are not giving up without a fight. they've been blocking the judaica canal nothing to our laws preventing
12:34 pm
three cruise ships from leaving. politicians scientists and citizens action groups have been arguing for five years about alternative concepts full cruise tourism but so far without success. the idea of a dot bomb would end outdoors i mean they only do it like that to be occupied but imo you keep the emergency. finance that's your nap look out and not your my friend will go to give up on that company and that may become a. headache and. it looks like a battle between david and goliath between a few activists and all powerful corporations has led they stop rolled and reap the profits and tax the supply coming on.
12:35 pm
board. because. it. is. your. life. and. the travel companies sell the passage through the lagoon as a cruise highlight. they still cool with then this if they had to sail around the city what consequences would it have for the private company of d.t.p. . questions the port authority cooldown said that they didn't want to make a statement either on camera nor in writing. the cruise market is dominated by the anglo american konovalov cooperation that twenty five subsidy or is included talian
12:36 pm
sounding names like caustic or cherry and the germany based aida proves it. does such a mighty consortium tool the sale of. this very moment that was the value. of the person who should. be. allowed to take. their money shit that they made a fair. enough record if you didn't sound. like wasting most of your much time is without. and they intend to repeat the strategy meanwhile unesco has warned that venice is status as a world cultural heritage site is threatened less measures to protect the lagoon are adopted so the un commission can't itself take action in this regard it can only make recommendations. but in this such recommendations do not seem well.
12:37 pm
maybe even a crystal ball but if but she had she could have crystal ball the. good she told me they she'd be their names could she. be to cause a. scoop of anything she could i mean take it out of course i mean to put on a school because you. know saul said as he stood up when it's you could i mean that you often think. of him knowing. the cultural heritage designation the cities are committed to protecting not just the monuments but the overall appearance of the city. to stop some becoming a camping site stewards point out the rules to tourists. but i think that yeah
12:38 pm
because that's a bunch of it up if i can just about the venice is most famous square dates from the mine. century a historic site for great state ceremonies and festivals visitors should respect that. they add at what i believe put it where that a head i. wash the feet but it depends on the format though it's not that big by somebody at it how can i go back that way if it's not that big by say that had to go back to the plate and not feeding the pigeons in the square is also strictly forbidden the birds droppings damaged the buildings facades all fall to that but it's not allowed thanks. elfie be helpful. if i meet that you can receive a fine a losing battle the work of the law enforcers reflects venice is fundamental problem with tourism there are just too many visitors and once they leave after
12:39 pm
a few hours the city faces its next major challenge. that. tourists leave behind fifty three thousand tons of rubbish every year getting rid of it is complicated with venice is narrow alleyways and many bridges in the city without road traffic gobby just to be removed by built laborious logistics which cost eighty million tourists a. large part is borne by the local authorities. before the first tourists flood in and then is has a big training job. the area around st mark's square is look at paris punch every day he and his colleagues make sure that the rich don't take over the city of the inhabitants have to follow
12:40 pm
strict rules about when to put their rubbish oh. we'll. a lot of. dino to say they pursue an impulse when all it was it died in the deeds of forty days. because of a put all books that old boy plus would say that a cow president abbas see. poor old. if i don't like him and it's a going to employ a vehicle with. plastic paper nuku the beauty has to cope with mixed rubbish every day the resident should have to separate the week we see the queer look of it in a young would have bet that all going to court was a. little late tuesday so that's what i mean to a dane diffidence out the day in this you pick
12:41 pm
a. i mean what are they so they said in seattle throw out of the opposed to clinton he told you to put they have the students out that i think it will need to. make you need to do stuff pollute say yeah they'd all. be able to stop opening them old coal and forcing the sick woman soon to. be some sort of your dad and i. know what i'm with that was good food and stuck in the sock make it flawed. logic i'd say that and always be out of money when i get busted. but i'm going to a day to keen only diet informativeness. here's what people have been saying about rejected and i suspect it's the law in austin the only show i go out of my way to find you know some really packs of.
12:42 pm
yam is the john oliver. party america is doing the same thing we are apparently better than flew past. the sea savior you never heard of love redacted tonight not the president of the world bank though they are going to go to seriously send us an e-mail. with lawmakers manufactured them sentenced to public wealth. when the ruling class isn't protect themselves. with the crime of. listen we don't want. to ignore middle of the room sick. real news.
12:43 pm
shows seem wrong why don't we all just don't hold. any. get to shape out just to become active. and engaged because the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. the wonderful blood donation. three weeks to get my transfusion to be specific i receive in. my body gets. around the world giving blood is seen as a symbol of generosity. that's one of the side of. me on your car. based drugs today come from
12:44 pm
a private company. and. one of the risks of pay donation. is proof that the frequency of. it. and who runs the business. growing mountains of rubbish constant arrivals and departures forwards of tourists always following the same trail the city's visitors are becoming an anonymous mass
12:45 pm
which appears to be there only to bring in the money. professor young fundable who teaches the subject of economics on tourism at the university of venice he's looked behind the scenes of the tourist industry and especially interested in the sectors labor market. if you look at the sort of. structural the to measure industry you see there's a lot of space for forty four more gray or black guy in the victim is it means people working in the kitchen without calling for x. and so forth a fact talking with people from the. tax office. pastis saying that. points out that naipaul's and venice are just cities where tax evasion is the high . where not even the city authorities know precisely how many tourists come it's
12:46 pm
hard to determine what income they actually generate. among the highest earners in venice on the gondoliers they make up to two hundred euros an hour but the number is limited to three hundred sixty making gondolier licenses highly sought after they're in the hands of a few families not in the gift of the city the authorities charge only forty euros a year for using the canals. in the table though up to five hundred thousand drew is being paid from one on the day to the beginning of it and this money's been earned back in about five years time so yeah. it's really difficult for you are about one in a thousand euro but here the strange thing is although it's an extreme if you did that the license exchanges and the table so there's no proof banks have being
12:47 pm
financing this kind of operate within. the city tax is going to live on the basis of a notional income of just thirty five thousand euros no receipts are required but who's counting in such a romantic situation. but what i love what i like it down to is supposed to lead us on a mission level we also have always said that i lay. the speech alloca chamish integrity did. not told him bad he'll want to do what i now do not the sort of you know an ok to want to what are you motions he out to want to well i mean would you choose that one to one i don't confound surely cantante because authority on their butts alone i know that's enough of the bottle on these to indicate but in any case authority to say finally a police study followed the regular jame to see. if you're going to be an issue of
12:48 pm
although you would need to call it you if you're at the school cage and the water on the coffee you're basically just look at you go larry what are you know if i'm an eggplant to what i don't know the message to t.c.m. it through sham of a very bad. but thanks to mass tourism living well together is no longer the case in many cities saloon that is famed for its cosmopolitan atmosphere but that's changing along with the idea of hospitality that b.n. being for example propagates but how can tourists know if they're renting legally or illegally will be in be inform its customers about it in future the company declined to comment but the mayor is already taking action. to show him and his perfect mate there is nothing but empty nest egg and. provoke upper limits that will be the mc and this is kind of the late if i look back and. all of that is that the guy made the sound that i was that. he play my game up with us and see how much that means as he sends me they want us. out of the name see that.
12:49 pm
in addition the city is no longer issuing licenses for hotels and holiday apartments in the old city center. but a lot of people who legally tourists feel themselves criminalized by the current criticism like elizabeth cassani us who runs the blog on the subject she lets her own through i don't lose a friend. thesea the photo and i thought i think i misspoke yourself and then we'll get i think i meant i think when i saw announce. the end of the line even headaches. but i'm not certain what i mean. or not but to me that math. prevented descent that one. out of me that need be that level of alchemy to me advocate george up oil that when guests arrive elizabeth cosigned house always
12:50 pm

a rising number of tourists. is too broad nic in danger of becoming an open air museum. cruise come to miscalculate just four hours for the visit then the passengers must return to the ship. it's understandable that the inhabitants of europe's favorite tourist destination are critical of this sort of tourism and feel pressure that. christmas on the said i'm a bit i'm not going to make. sure that. i can break. we went to a lot of people before us because i thought i don't see nothing is in black and c.p.a. . and i want that and more but he knows. that in the i want to march on national

and the voters elected the businessman to run this country business equals power you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before . the bomb a character will care designed to kill people because it is doing its job just like the architects of the gravel tower in london and the folks that put up the flammable cladding to kill people that's their culpability and that the people who have designed this health care are doing so to kill people that's their culpability in the copula system in america as iterated by the current regime of kleptocrats thanks killing people is necessary to make ya payments and grants going to. be a doozy saying. look there won't be cheap us and then too old to come through so

and. russia and china. call for deescalation after north korea test for another ballistic missile test during president xi jinping two day visit to months going. to the summons austria's ambassador vienna's plans to set up border controls between the two countries. and the german interior minister as those berlin's brace for russian meddling in september's general election however the country's intelligence service plays there's no sign moscow's trying to favor any particular candidate.
1:01 pm
there with eight pm here in the russian capital and you're watching r.t. international with me nicky arran our top story this hour the chinese leader has wrapped up his two day visit to the two david trip to the russian capital as well as signing some twelve billion dollars worth of deals the two countries called for deescalation on the korean peninsula artie's more aghasi it has been following the talks. one of the most telling things that they had to say was that day and this was said by both sides that lation is now between russia and china a better than they have ever been in the history and that is something that time and time again the jury in the various appearances by the two leaders obviously they talked about many things they agree don't cooperate shouldn't agriculture in space and business in the media almost every sphere you can talk about they side deals with twelve billion dollars and they were all smiles about
1:02 pm
a. chinese businessman told me that ice cream is very much enjoyed here as i promised i brought you a whole box of russian ice cream says. the
1:03 pm
chinese leader also said that the world was growing turbulent restless and case in point north korea launching another alleged into immediate police to miss out success with the heightening tensions in the region and here the chinese and russian leaders came out with a surprising solution the signs suggest north korea voluntarily declares a moratorium on nuclear tests. missile launches and that the u.s. and south korea refrain from joint drills the idea is to get both sides to deescalate and pulled back away from the brink but washington has other ideas donald trump has urged china to increase pressure on north korea to force it to back down in its alleged again pursuit of nuclear weapons and missiles the pentagon has reportedly said that it is now considering a show of force in order to deter north korea from its pursuit of weapons there is
1:04 pm
already a show for spin by the americans in the south china sea the moment we're in the position where on one side of the equation you have somebody who has extremely limited experience in foreign policy is a little bit flaky and very unpredictable and on the other side you have claimed john byrne who frankly is in the situation so well we're at a relatively dangerous time at the moment and it's showing the shifting tectonic plates in world affairs that it's actually russia and china who maybe the stabilize the situation. should seem ping's visit to russia comes at a time when china has relations with the u.s. on shaky ground as off the beijing ordered military vessels and jets to warn off an american warship which according to china violated its territorial waters in the south china sea on the scale of more pain looks at how things started to go wrong
1:05 pm
between beijing and washington. remember the famous chocolate cake that donald trump used to woo the chinese leader we had the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you've ever seen president she was enjoying it that was the first time that trump and she met with trump putting on a grand dinner for she which also featured trump's granddaughter singing a song for she in chinese. well that was back in april sense then trump's charm offensive seems to a faltering here's how the chinese foreign ministry sees it. president xi explicitly pointed out that china u.s. relations have made great progress in the recent days but they have also been affected by some negative factors a fair few such factors actually like the u.s. accusing china of being a top human trafficking offender child who was downgraded to tear three status in this year's report in part because it has not taken serious steps to end its own
1:06 pm
complicity in trafficking and washington's plan to sell one point four billion dollars in arms to taiwan which china regards as a breakaway province didn't exactly go down well either time isn't in alienable parts of china and the us weapons sales to taiwan violates international laws as well as the basic forms of international relations china firmly opposes it. another thing that china firmly opposes is the installation of american missiles right on its doorstep the deployment of the u.s. missile defense system in south korea does serious damage to the strategic security interests of all countries in the region including china and russia and disrupts the regional strategic balance well it looks like relations between beijing and washington won't be seeing any major reset but how big of a blow is that to china right now china's president xi is in moscow both china and russia would like to. demonstrate
1:07 pm
a common interest you can feel. deteriorating. relations with the united states both understand that from administration. a serious fan of uncertainty and very cautious demonstration. china and russia you see to be beneficial on the part of both. despite trump's attempt to be best buddies with she a while ago it looks like the geo political setup hasn't really changed just like under obama the two eurasian super powers seem to be getting along pretty well while the united states is distancing itself and distrusting both of them. r.t. new york. after all the fuss over the trump administration's possible links to the kremlin the u.s. and russian presidents will finally come face to face but so much to meet at the g. twenty summit in how this friday partridge has more. well this year's g.
1:08 pm
twenty summit promises to be very interesting indeed the white house and the kremlin have both confirmed that presidents trump and putin will meet on the sidelines though after six months of russia dominating the headlines and moscow admitting that relations between the countries are it is zero however it's much anticipated by other people that this will be the highlight of the entire summit or what is it that we're going to be talking about well first of all this ukraine and secondly the syria and that promises to be very sorely indeed after the white house came out with the unfounded allegation and indeed prediction that president assad would use another chemical attack in syria and that to which i quote moscow said is an invitation for provocation and then there's the g twenty summit venue itself it's been in hamburg where there's been protests and demonstrators are saying they're going to be even more of them and then there's a scandal amongst the policeman the burning police were drafted in to help the hamburg colleagues in providing security for the event but hundreds of them have
1:09 pm
been sent home after a scandal where the party got out of hand where public sex fighting in striptease seemed to be the order of the night and therefore inappropriate behavior was the reason that they were sent back and then this president urges bodyguards they've also been told not to come following the recent time in may when they were accused of beating up protesters outside the turkish embassy in washington so all in all this year's the g. twenty promises to be very interesting indeed ahead of the summit as her lawn dart is dario in korea to create a giant portrait of lattimer putin in a cornfield to create the image drove his tractor into a field of measuring twenty five thousand square meters that's the size of around two hundred thirty football pitches in a similar way has previously created portraits of a number of influential people including pope francis' nelson mandela and donald trump who is another big figure at the upcoming g. twenty summit. australia's ambassador has been summoned by
1:10 pm
italy other vienna has reported plans to deploy troops at the borders between the two countries the attack italian interior ministry has strongly criticized the decision it's an unjustified and unprecedented initiative that if not immediately changed will inevitably have repercussions for security cooperation between two countries and it's all happening amidst an increased influx of life into italy are to shallow deep and skew has more. has been summonsed over the fact that vienna has said it could deploy up to seven hundred fifty troops to the border with italy they're ready to be deployed at any point and it has already deployed a number of armed personnel carrier to the border to the brain a pass which is a mountainous pass between italy and austria and that's because austria is concerned about the growing influx of migrants to italy which may then cross its
1:11 pm
border into austria so basically what they're trying to do is they're trying to say that they will shore up their own borders if there is a continued influx of people moving northwards from italy now that's because in the last few years hoffer million migrants have landed on a tally and shores many of them not wanting to stay in italy and if you look at the figures this year alone the un migration agency says around one hundred thousand migrants have landed on european soil from the mediterranean sea since january of this year and the majority of those more than eighty four thousand have landed in italy alone now i was in the italian island of sicily over the last few days in the city of palermo looking at some of the issues that have been caused by this mounting my current crisis and what we saw on the streets there the fact that many of the mafia gangs have now teamed up with migrant gangs and they're actually
1:12 pm
forcing migrants to work for them in criminal activities such as selling drugs and we've seen over the past few weeks migrants being stopped particularly on the french italian border and being forced to go back to italy now italy has just said it feels abandoned it just cannot cope with this mounting crisis what started as a call for help by italy now looks like it could be turning into a diplomatic crisis as countries in the e.u. look to close their borders off with a. you counterpart leaving italy dwindling under the continued pressure of this my current crisis. in fact the un refugee agency has already expressed their concern over the issue according to it other countries should also share the responsibility for my italian foreign minister franco frattini spoke to us earlier and was scathing it is view of europe's involvement in solving the migrant crisis. it is unsustainable situation trad minister gentil own he's trying to promote european
1:13 pm
soli darity but unfortunately the reason these greg a show of european union all round even the beatles are all bassy. to each other you know unfortunately disproving completely useless on helping the telly on solving the migrant crises today unfortunately the weakness of european institutions and national egg ots was leading to isolating the telly in them be the mediterranean this is simply not acceptable we soul few days ago sound. old cray mailed people put a bomb before hollows where some my grounds are osha to be located so some a piece builds of violent intolerance could be absolutely
1:14 pm
wrong but the response by dole's extremist group that it need to fight against any kind a welcome the migrants any kind of soldier so tease a very wrong response to a roman solution for decades on migrations. that is today the european commission announced a plan to help libya with the influx of migrants a year is set to a mark thirty five million euros for migrants related expenses germany thinks russia well into ferran in september election with about story coming up after this short break.
1:15 pm
live i. live. the feeling of. every the world. you get on the old the old. the old according to josh. come along for the ride. let
1:16 pm
live. welcome back germany's interior minister says the country expects russia to interfere in september's general election on his piece although the has the details . interior minister thomas to mary's there was speaking at a press conference here in berlin where he said that in his opinion russia will try and influence the twenty seventeen general election here in germany he said that he expects data that was stolen during a computer on the bundestag back in twenty fifteen will be made public over the coming weeks now back in twenty fifty when that happened or fingers of blame were pointed out russia however still no proof of an investigation was proof that it had been a russia had any involvement in that such a long sight him at the same time was hans mohsen he's the head of germany's interior security services the bear file very similar in many ways to say m i five
1:17 pm
in the u.k. or the f.b.i. in the united states he said that there wasn't any indication that russia would try to influence any particular or support any particular candidate or party which then clover or begs the question why would they do it in the first place it's a lot of effort to go into to influence and try and change the outcome of somebody's election if you have no particular care over who comes out on top is the winner in the end well the who owns your musson heads up also issued a report in which they list russia as one of the top three cyber security risks to germany but we cast our minds back to you to february of this year just a few months ago the german security services issued a report in which they said there was no evidence that russia was attempting to undermine the government of angela merkel this all brings us back to what we've seen in the united states previously in france as well where there are elections
1:18 pm
following their actions and even in the lead up there were claims that russia was trying to influence those votes well despite there being some serious allegations made and some of those allegations being made under oath there's been no investigation and no proof. that anything actually took place so because bring it i and seeing what more comes out of the interior minister here in germany mr marson the head of internal security just to see what if they come up with any evidence for their claims that russia may be trying to influence the twenty seventeen german general election. by the us just hours left for cancer to decide on whether to submit to an ultimatum from a saudi led bloc that sanctions the gulf state but that line now expires at midnight on tuesday after its extended by forty eight hours well let's take a closer look at the demands put forward by saudi arabia bahrain egypt and the
1:19 pm
emirates the block ones can start to cut its ties with iran and militant groups named by the saudis and their allies as terrorists qatar has also been told to shut down a turkish military base on its territory and the thirteen point list includes a demand for cats are to close all of its international outlets including al-jazeera and the saudi led bloc want to doha or to seize contact with political opposition groups in their countries qatari officials has spoken out in defiance of the ultimatum. this list of. demands made to be rejected it's not made to be accepted or not made to be negotiated is not an easy country to be swallowed by only one. we are ready we stand ready to defend or could too. well maybe a small country it's a significant regional player the us has two military facilities near doha one of
1:20 pm
which is washington's largest base in the middle east meanwhile turkey's first military bases in the read in the region is also in qatar with the two nations often holding joint drills across the gulf is iran which has the world's biggest natural gas filled with cancer has been criticized by the saudi led bloc for its cooperation with iran when my colleague there are two to discuss the crisis with london based professor malik darla and retired saudi navy commodore ability for him . we should expect and we should look at this situation that it's beyond al jazeera or qatar for that matter i think the fight against radicalism doesn't stop at financing i think we've reached a stage that we need to accept that will have his name in specific is the problem in both countries both protagonists and that it has failed as an ideology for both countries and by that i mean saudi arabia and qatar i don't know clea the the
1:21 pm
qatari people are the closest to the saudis regarding the the will fly for social so even social but social behavior and many of the qataris are descended to full for family for families from saudi arabia and tribes from saudi arabia there's a very very high respect for the for the qatari people but we are having a boycott just to to. think. relations with the others have to change you know i have to waltz the lashes if we look at saudi arabia's foreign minister you've talked about having a high respect for the qatari people yet the saudi arabia's foreign minister says quote the measures adopted against guitar intended to change policies as these policies harm and i suppose some an international perspective why is riyadh deciding what's best for tall todos this continuing to. do actually you know the public relation to god being that it got to get
1:22 pm
a list organizations that are harming saudi arabia i mean directly general called me old school a little bit but i think frankly the only way to do this in the tribal diplomacy fashion is to have a sit down and in my view instead of escalation in this sense of pride and humiliation i think maybe an invitation or something to shift to me more of the foreign minister and just having to sit down instead of this public i think you know discussion where you know the u.s. government. is involved in president trump or saying something in his secretary of state to say something else than ever exactly exactly. down exiled them into and just have this discussion you both obviously agreed in this fight against terrorism and you both being very dim diplomatic but we can't ignore the fact that saudi itself has been accused of sponsoring terrorism so some may
1:23 pm
view again these extreme public demands of come from the saudi led group as being rather hypocritical saudi arabia have. played a very very big part look only in saudi arabia but on the war to fight terrorism and saudi arabia is one of the most successful country in and fight and fighting terrorism we do we dicked it is a very witty very very very heavily truth he said i think everyone made mistakes or we need to do is look at syria which is still a festering wound for all of us and as we know the us russia everyone knew i was. pulled into that conflict but yes there has been a joint command. operation between qatar saudi the us and others there's been money used and so on at least as far as the intelligence reports suggest mistakes have been mean. now it seems everything president trump does these days is soon turned into a me as jaclyn vehicle explains despite some criticism this tactic may actually be
1:24 pm
a winner. don't try and hit back at criticisms that his tweets degrade the office of the president by posting an admission saying that his use of social media indeed isn't presidential but rather modern day presidential and while the critics out on whether that's a good thing or not it's undeniable the man understands the power of the internet trump inspires me and creates me trump uses mediums and his twitter post take the recent c.n.n. wrestling video he shared which was originally posted on reddit a popular viral news and discussion website. thank you that modern day presidential post caused an uproar in the traditional media president of the united states taking things way too far and as an incitement to violence he is going to get somebody killed in the media is an attempt to might be successful to drum up violence against journalists it's kind
1:25 pm
of behavior to lead to a journalist he hurt it's no wonder that sixty percent of americans say they have little to no trust in the media and many are turning to social media to get their information a trend that trump has cottoned onto and when the mainstream media makes his every tweet breaking news they're giving trump exactly what he wants i think you guys are getting played man i think every time he does this you guys overreact and i say you guys i mean the media in general you overreact and you play right into his hand whatever trump does they jump on it in a huge scrum he has used the media the social media is used twitter. and twitter has been around for a while. everything they've got i don't like i'm. sure it's use to me and they don't understand it and they right now are actually a very critical position in their lives because the american public has no faith in
1:26 pm
them which allow for so it seems that's how trump when is a war with traditional mean. through the magic i mean. washington d.c. you watching on c n c national the late edition of boom bust is coming your way off of the short break. i think a little more than you get it i'm not going to let. me. come to. this morning with communism. still.
1:27 pm
to bomb a character i don't care designed to kill people because it is doing its job just like the architects of the grand isle tower in london and the folks that put up the flammable cladding to kill people that's their culpability and that the people who have designed this health care are doing so to kill people that's their culpability in the capitalist system in america as iterated by the current regime of kleptocrats thanks killing people is necessary to make ya payments in greenwich connecticut. basile in the dubrovnik in venice are all fixed travel destinations so it must be nice to live or is it. crowds of tourists disrupt the city's economic and social life remember to report this on the smash and get out of the movie or such of the traditional story some
1:28 pm
not scums by him sometimes. so you don't. mind the school but they don't want to while the city is trying desperately not to collapse corporations collect the profit of what was a bubble and probably global in the. cup the economy in the bush has a. couple suppose it's immune to. it and it. is a tourist phobia feel for them to own identity. hey there i'm lindy france the boss broadcasting around the world from washington d.c. tonight the institute of international finance says the global debt now rests at three hundred twenty seven percent of the world's annual economic output we look at
1:29 pm
who may be at fault here also italy have borne the brunt of the refugee crisis it's now presents a slam the brakes on accepting more in the midst of its own economic crisis my guests and i talk about guaranteed government jobs versus federal basic income birth and the current welfare system we delve into the ideas thrown around and whether any real change is likely to take place standby starts right now. goldman sachs is making big changes to the front page of its website it's now included an explanation of block chain to potential customers the firm describes
1:30 pm
a block chain a series of recorded digital transactions. as the technology of trust is saying that it will combine the openness of the internet with security of cryptography there's been good reason though for a lot of caution for crypto currencies they're still comparatively untested and volatile on top of this they're currently decentralized entities making them susceptible to massive cyber attacks and privacy invasions. well days ago the chiefs of major tech firms converged on the white house for a party of sorts to discuss technology's impact on the economy workforce and federal id infrastructure as well as emerging technology some big wigs showed up much to the chagrin of customers employees pundits and protesters including the ever present resists movement my guest says this protest approach is counterproductive and that it's losing steam when facing big business and big money
1:31 pm
i sat down with patrice on lucas senior fellow at the independent women's forum to discuss when we consider that there was a. kind of a campaign to get the c.e.o.'s not to come to washington d.c. last week for the tax summit and they still came and were talking about jeff bezos from amazon we're talking about tim cook at it from apple like some really big names were in the room and we rewind back to last fall even after the election before the election one hundred fifty c.e.o.'s in the tech sector they signed an open letter openly against president trump. the candidate trying to time and you know we saw some big names also kind of sit out some of the white house early white house discussions around tack and business leaders. he resigned as you know for a number of mistreatment accusations but i think what we're seeing is these c.e.o.'s are looking at not just the short term but the long term you know this administration is pushing forward with
1:32 pm
a pretty aggressive agenda and they want to not be left out of the table left out of the discussions they want to be a part of shaping the policy and i think it's important to realize here these are not nonprofits these are big business guys a lot of them are great places to work they have great benefits they're coming out with progressive products but they're not a nonprofit they want to capitalize and move forward and they're going to do this and i think that a lot of people take their progressive message and don't want to actually realize the. this is business and in all its ugly forms would you agree with that well i mean think about what companies exist for for profit and that's not a bad thing i want a service making money exactly where enriching the lives of consumers like us you know and so they're thinking through you know when you look at some of the items that are coming out infrastructure there's a huge the opportunity for broadband access or expansion across the country and if you're interested in that that's an area for you to be the internet of things i heard t. there is
1:33 pm
a really interesting movement to think about how do we shape policy around that you know and if you're thinking if you're an amazon if you're a big company that is producing. products that are wired products that are connected to the internet products that are making people's lives better but leverage infrastructure you don't want to be on the back end of hearing about policy changes that are going to fundamentally affect your business model and if you don't do it someone's going to do it and if you do it right you can be instilling confidence in your customers and a lot of people so let's talk about the optics here we've seen people bow out of you know that sort of inner circle of what trump is trying to gather because of the optics what customers say whatever their employees say how do you think how important is that going forward for these people as you said candidate trump you know brought those people into the room after he was elected. how do you think this is either going to. roll off people's bags or if they're still going to take it seriously as far as the c.e.o.'s meeting in the room sort of terms i mean there is
1:34 pm
they they're thinking again about what they're trying to accomplish you know from a business perspective and so i'm not going to downplay the importance of employee satisfaction employees perspectives and even their customers perspectives i mean a revolt by your customers can have a huge impact on what you decide to do you are what invitations to the white house you decide to take but they're thinking through things like tax reform which silicon valley has been pushing for because they're thinking about all the money that the revenue they earn overseas and how to bring it back here to them and states without having a huge tax burden tax bill so they're thinking ok we have an opportunity here to not just increase our bottom line but also allow us to expand our businesses by getting on the ground floor when it comes to these policy discussions you along with what you've said you know apple gets maybe less than one percent business tax in ireland right we've got. the head of apple cook talking about really liking some of donald trump's agenda ideas meanwhile mark zuckerberg attend these meetings
1:35 pm
that ironic to you because. ireland's getting it ireland is giving out a great deal still he wants in on this well the official statement is that there was a conflict of interest for mr zuckerberg you know i do think it was interesting that we didn't seize twitter's c.e.o. there we didn't see facebook c.e.o. there and these are very big media companies you know i think they're making a calculated decision about you know. going to whether to go it alone whether you decide which show up q where do you send your maybe your. lobbyist to rather than yourself being in a photo op with the president so if you think that all of your patronage here. you will him something he says oh we're going to work with you but you owe me this. president is not known to have said that do you think people are a bit gun shy if they were eventually with president obama for the same reason then they would be but i don't see that i don't see that and when you look at the obama
1:36 pm
administration president obama worked really closely with silicon valley he had to call in the tech cops the techies to rescue health care dot gov the obamacare website when it when it crashed and so there's there's always been that kind of relationship i think what last week's meeting did not just from a policy perspective was from a relationship healing perspective you know to say you know this silicon valley needs to be part of the idea of modernizing washington d.c. and it's tech infrastructure but also thinking through how are these policies that are coming out of washington would affect us. since the beginning of your regular crisis it's italy that mostly bore the brunt after years of feeling ignored by the e.u. the mediterranean country. is now threatening to stop accepting refugees for
1:37 pm
she joins me in the studio for more on that bianca hasn't the number of refugees actually relatively decreased over the years it has so you know compared to twenty sixteen and twenty fifteen the amount of refugees going to europe has dropped but a majority of the ones that have traveled in twenty seventeen to europe have gone to italy so italy isn't feeling relief like other e.u. nations are which is why if they're looking at different methods to deal with it now because of its location italy has always acted as an entry point to europe for refugees but for the past few years the sheer amount of refugees arriving has taken a toll so big that the government is threatening to shut down the ports the possibility was discussed at a meeting between the sari serves as italy's ambassador to the e.u. and e.u. migration commissioner dimitris ever marvelous in a statement said quote italy is right when it comes to being when it comes to the situation being untenable in fact just over ninety two thousand refugees arrived to europe by sea in two thousand and seventeen of that total almost eighty four
1:38 pm
thousand of them ended up in italy so most people would agree that the italians need a break but closing off the ports to refugees might not be an easy fix disembarkation is governed by international law which could make for complicated legal problems ahead the move would also for ships to change their sailing routes in particular vessels the coast guard frontex and nations participating in the anti-smuggling mission operations sophia could technically be banned too it's a situation that would definitely concern the united nations considering the criminal activity that's forest in the wake of the crisis earlier this year the un's migration agency warned of refugees being sold at modern day slave auctions in libya it's not just the threat of human traffickers that refugees have to worry about despite the best efforts of aid organizations. conditions at official and unofficial refugee centers are often understaffed with very little resources but at
1:39 pm
a meeting next week migration officials are expected to discuss italy's dilemma and figure out what to do. figure out what to do it's going to be more complicated than people thought it would be like hello are here according to our president how the aid groups responded to this big efforts they're also hemmed in by a lot of laws so all the aid groups are clearly very program except and so they're disappointed by hearing italy saying that they might not accept as many refugees as they have been for the past few years i don't think it's much of a surprise because italy in addition to greece have really been incredibly overwhelmed compared to the other nations so it's not that they can say they're totally shocked by it but you know these aid groups are saying the reason we have to bring the men is because if we don't we risk them all drowning out at sea and then we're spending our time going there or worse risk exactly so you know they're not happy about it and i think they're definitely going to be involved in talks
1:40 pm
moving forward with the e.u. officials but they would you know it's not the best situation right now but they certainly don't want to turn any people away of course the u.n. announced that lots of syrians for turn to their homes what can you tell us about that it's an interesting little to even think about it is but four hundred forty thousand syrians have returned home after being in totally displaced so these are people that didn't end up leaving the country they just had to run out of their huge on the road over. well that and in addition to that thirty one thousand who did actually of the country went back so it's a very small odd glimmer of hope i mean it's good to hear these things but as we know syria is just in most parts not safe to go back to so it's partially good news but still concerning for most aid groups and yeah that's some very surprising news about that thank you so much. we're going to head to break now but stick around
1:41 pm
because when we get back the institute of international finance of the global that now rests at three hundred twenty seven percent of the world annual economic. boom bust is back in a month. i see you know what i'm still at the stuff that. you know. we must be serious but that's a lot of gold yet completed money's. worth and you know if you don't think that's a magnificent. someplace go to see my food food and save me save us from people really you know it's imprints the in my my keyboard still welcome in russia it's all being very good because this was what it does to you it's not very enjoyable place to be very friendly ok poll.
1:42 pm
number one letter to be. someplace you go through the. punch. you get the mail and here we're very glad that i'm here which of those will still. be a doozy. but there won't be cheap but then you and all the countries don't but the idea is their own words come. to you. but. this is what we don't understand how we are in such i'm. going to sit through the
1:43 pm
lens of the same time. you're saying i'm going to. the. cinema. john a good one. but i just. got . on the computer with the plane to. come back to do the story you have to see. borrowing sprees in the developing world has spurred a surge in global debt levels to a record two hundred seventeen trillion dollars according to the institute of international finance this is positioned global debt at three hundred twenty seven
1:44 pm
percent of global economic output or g.d.p. as one of the most authoritative trackers of capital flows the i.f.'s warns that three trillion dollars in a job now creates a danger of short term debt repayments to emerging markets according to the i.a.f.f. in some cases this sharp debt build up has already started to become a drag on sovereign credit profiles including countries such as china and canada for its part china accounted for two trillion dollars of this rise but it's that now nearly thirty three trillion dollars this coincides with the continued d. leveraging of advanced economies cutting total public and private debt by over two trillion in the past year. and the center for american progress a huge think tank on the left is pushing expanded government employment programs could be a great tool for training and employing a much needed skilled labor force in the united states but some fear it could create large an ineffective government bureaucracy handing out jobs that aren't
1:45 pm
adding value meanwhile others argue that universal basic income is the remedy to the current state of an ineffective welfare system but my gas. economics professor and program director at bard college points out the flaws in this and then lays out a plan check it out to jump into proposal is not a new proposal so i'm very encouraged that they have embraced the language and some of the rationale but it seems like what they're proposing is a bit more modest than what the actual job guarantee is the job period to sensually is a permanent standby policy that often is directed to the unemployed in good times and in bad so even if the peak of the economic cycle we have about two people per every job opening so we'd need an employment program that will capture those unemployed people as well they're targeting him by the four
1:46 pm
point four million jobs and that seems rather small. yeah. to say the very least and right now unemployment according to statistics isn't the worst we've had but it's still not great and that's that's much more than than we need out there now is if you want to train and start apprenticeships fine but they don't guarantee private sector jobs for us to meet we need about twenty million full time jobs in today's world to have that number right what do you think about that yes some of my colleagues i believe economics institute have done a recent study that does the full count. we're looking at anywhere between twelve to twenty million full time jobs a shortage of twenty twelve to twenty million so we need to account for people who have left the labor force right after the crisis people who are working part time but need full time work. other people who are invisible to us there is pent up
1:47 pm
demand for jobs even among caregivers simply because there aren't well paying jobs and so if we were to look at really the demand for jobs we're looking at much bigger numbers well tell me about these public jobs wouldn't require an increase in government projects funding bureaucracy you know anything right now. the right political right is taking over elections in this country we just saw for a special elections the democrats are zero for four obviously the presidential election was was one thing how do you think the american people would ever think that increasing government projects to offer employment would work because that sounds like what it would require to keep people publicly employed not just trained . all right i think that if anything this last election told us that people want jobs i mean that israel hard of their economic anxiety there are other issues without a doubt but with respect to our policy agenda going forward people need work and so
1:48 pm
. given what we are already doing and how little we have how meager the expansion has been how. few jobs we've been able to create i people i think are hungry for a lot more aggressive approach so are these going to be. government jobs they can be federally funded but they can be locally administered they can be administered by a nonprofit social interprete ventures there are many ways in which we can do this what's important to keep in mind is that this is a policy that compliments private sector employment the government already spends in countless cyclical ways in other words when the economy is bad the government already provides a considerable amount of stimulus but if we were to do it through job guarantee we will simply be providing jobs to people who have been laid off that provides the
1:49 pm
stimulus to the economy we essentially limited a jobless recovery and as the economy recovers then people transition into private sector employment so in a sense we're not changing the function of government we already do counter cyclical spending except we don't know how much we need to spend because we don't directly employ people but doesn't the sound a bit like i mean you're going to have to agree increase public funding for jobs are thieves jobs worthless do we need them is there a demand for these jobs are you just creating jobs where you know so that someone can pack a lunch and go to work every day and come home with a paycheck which we all know is very important people have pride in work and a lot of people unemployed want that but can we just go about willy nilly creating jobs to guarantee a job and if not that is the word job guarantee a bit misleading. it's a guarantee in the sense that if somebody needs work we will provide
1:50 pm
a project that will employ them at a above poverty i've argued for a living wage so in that sense it's basically a promise that's what it means to be a get and but job then a job guarantee what kind of jobs would those be out what will project we're talking about we talked about building needed infrastructure. there are we talking about administrator or someone working in the you know the state highway program like in my state and they pay people fifty thousand dollars a year to do p.r. and make new pamphlets i mean i don't people that do that and it's not necessarily something that's really needed but we do need road workers so i guess what athan is these projects that people are being trained for what what what's an idea of some of those types of projects. so there are lots of socially useful but to it is that just go unfulfilled i mean if you just look at the care gaps whether it's elder care where there's child care whether it's community care i mean
1:51 pm
we have a lot of public squalor these jobs are for the public purpose these are socially useful jobs there are many many things that we can think of whether they're small environmental jobs like renewal cleanup whether they are small infrastructure jobs whether they are again care care work there isn't a shortage of things that we need to get done but what we also know is that unemployment imposes enormous costs on society and we already pay for unemployment we estimate that we are foregoing we're giving up about half a billion to ten billion dollars of output per day because we tolerate high unemployment now this is already paid for we are also enormous costs that are associated with unemployment whether this these are health costs whether this is crime with its incarceration whether it is the urban blight and the poverty that we
1:52 pm
have to address this is paid for what i'm suggesting is that if we were to do a direct employment program that provides people with decent work decent pay doing useful public projects that will reduce significantly the enormous costs that we already bear right and a lot of people as you say you can fold that into. to trades and you know engineering refrigeration even all of these things that that so many people of even with high school educations can vocational training method i'm trying to say valuable vocational training that so many people can't really get a hold on if the government maybe as you said funded those things it would add so much to the projects we need now i want to talk also about what cap is targeting as an unemployment rate of our i'm sorry apply employment rate of seventy nine percent of the prime age working group that's nice do you think that's even possible. i think it is possible i i wouldn't necessarily think that this is the appropriate
1:53 pm
target i think the target is to provide work to those who need it what about the population that is not prime working age if we were to look at the national unemployment rate most economists believe that we are already at full employment but if you actually look at county level unemployment you will find that their pockets around the country some surprising areas in fact that are not michigan or ohio that suffer from persistent ongoing depression levels of unemployment and this is ongoing even in good times so if i were to do it i will simply provide open ended job offer and i will target the program to these distressed communities some of these distressed communities may have elderly workers that still need work some might have young workers that have very high unemployment rates so the way
1:54 pm
that i would go about this is simply providing in a targeted way a job opportunity to anyone who wants it then people can voluntarily select into the program and only then can we know really what is the appropriate employment to population ratio that we will end up with i think the most the thing that would actually sell this is if you the american people understood what the. jobs were how much they were needed and they weren't just trying to find someone something to do for a paycheck i want to talk about a universal basic income it solves affects the social welfare you say this concept is essentially a trojan horse can you explain that to me. well it's a giant voucher program the universal basic income promises. paycheck to anyone whether they work or not whether they are rich or poor whether the economy is doing well or not on ongoing basis so it is popular with the right because it is seen as
1:55 pm
a replacement to existing welfare programs it is popular with the corporate sector because if that represents if that actually leads to replacing some programs that might lead to privatization of some public functions so we have this model where the corporate sector doesn't have any incentive or impetus to provide decent pay because this represents a subsidy why should a company provide let's say health benefits if somebody has a basic income voucher that can you know buy health care on the market why should we provide high pay or high wages if there is that other additional income that one could. supposedly use to provide for themselves so it is a subsidy now compare this with a job guarantee the job getting to provides a decent work and dissipate if the private sector wants to hire a person in the expansion from this program they will have to match that wage
1:56 pm
benefit package and so that becomes an effective minimum wage for the economy and this could be very interesting if we hear more as this possibly develops maybe not of what these jobs would be to fill in these communities and even in their urban urban blight areas that there's there's the jobs have fled the opportunities have fled what could be created there thank you so much for coming on and talking to me about this we're going to bring you want to talk about this more very soon probably not. associate professor of economics and migrant chair at bard college thank you. a guest on the alex jones show has actually made nasa released a statement about life on the planet mars according to media reports former cia case officer robert steel went on the show claiming that for the last twenty years . oh heavens children have been kidnapped and sent to mars to live and work as slave labor in a statement released to the daily beast nasa spokesperson guy webster said quote
