but it wasn't just russian reporters who she publicly humiliated she didn't even spare veteran journalists like matt levy let's check out how she shut him down. if there were people in line to replace it people were leaving and the fact is because you are not aware of it does not mean that that does not exist ok have a good moment because there are there are people in mind and in line for those types of positions perhaps you've just not heard about yet and then amid a berridge of questions now or shut down the entire press conference and then rejected a reporter's question who was rightfully upset about this and then stood up from her chair and followed heather now or out of the room we've got it we've got to go i was wrong i will talk to you after the no the iraqi parliament voted wednesday to call for a timetable for the iraq for fortune. well heather's behavior today was certainly questionable but i wonder if we'll hear any
10:31 pm
complaints from the other reporters but i thought the press briefings at the state department under obama weren't to timing but it seems like could be in for a run for the money the way things are going with have a now it's many thanks america can bring it up to date. next to south africa parliament voted in favor of new legislation that could see land seized from white farmers under the plans want farmers will be stripped of their land with no compensation although this runs against the constitution which would have to be amended is what the man behind the initiative had to say. the time for reconsideration is over now is the time for justice we must ensure that we restore the dignity of our people without compensating the criminals who stole our land. to this millennium is something of a controversial figure in south africa he's been convicted of hate speech and back in twenty sixteen said that he was not calling for the slaughter of white people at least not yet despite that the country's former president jacob zuma described him
10:32 pm
as being a future leader the rate of murders and violent attacks on farmers and landowners has risen in recent years according to official figures seventy two percent of the country's farmers are white earlier we put this issue up for debate. people do not own land in south africa legally white people out alive from europe in six inches to two they killed our people they stole our land all oppressed us all the land they have this land deal was taken from us by force and in many instances by my success we all visit the shirt every game proving there was the blood type of south africa that came from the north that is well documented. they killed each other for the land in the position of the black tribes the only the first occupants of south africa were the korean the son so if these are argument. that should be the korean the sons of the peasant like the one who is now
10:33 pm
my opponent easier for a night in south africa and the land he in checked talking about equates son i am quite certain he can send my same name any time i ask him to say it he does it it can't because as a foreigner i even wanted it that day parliament is moving slow and politician we don't trust them they are using this lensing as a political eight ball instead of addressing the issue of this legislation could actually be changed to satisfy the white farmers as well there's a lot of corruption involved and that's why the oprah series of land that was taken from people legally in the past to be returned to them is not going as it should go you see this in front of me that is the issue. if this goes on investment in this country would stop people won't invasion the country will go the same way as involved they won't be production and then we'll have a big spring in south africa about food that's not available to the people of south
10:34 pm
africa. burden or thirty's have circulated a brochure among kindergarten stuff that focuses on issues such as trans gender identity and same sex marriage the booklet designed to help teachers explain these sensitive topics to children has sparked controversy peter oliver has the details. it is a city famed for its liberal and inclusive attitudes to sex and sexuality. but conservatives in the german capital are upset at a new guide for kindergarten teachers that they say goes into too much detail and is aimed at kids that are too young the idea is to give educators the information they need to be sensitive to children coming from non-binary families say children
10:35 pm
of same sex parents or transgender parents it doesn't have the most catchy of names but what it has done is certainly ruffle some feathers among those in angela merkel's c.d.u. party children should be allowed to be children and not be confronted with things like these it's also come in for criticism from the opposition alternative for germany party well it's very simple we believe sex education is important and of course our young adults should know about sex planning and all the rest but please not in the kindergarten give them some space let them be children don't force this issue onto them it's not even a problem for them they want to play around they want to discover the world so please let them be children leave them alone these subjects will come to them soon enough in school or at home when the parents talk about this but not of an age of five or six years that is far too early on the streets of berlin opinion is mixed
10:36 pm
on when is the right time to be discussing with children issues of sexuality do you think that children in kindergarten should be taught about same sex couples and about transgender people yes. it's normal nowadays. to be with people. around the people in all gender conditions are not gender or sexuality is an older stuff i don't think it's the right age i think when they. receive sex. education in school that's enough i think there's thinking on the one hand i think it's ok but on the other i don't got on very much in favor of that idea so yes i do and why i think it's important structure of life so i think children should be taught about all factors of life and this is one of them the left wing coalition of the social democrats greens and
10:37 pm
the left party that runs in city government are accusing those on the right wing of politics at the really prudish and unwilling to discuss the issue. after their attempt to scandalize the handouts from section on gender diversity for teachers didn't work the c.d.u. would prefer not to talk about the issue there's very little chance of the early in city government repealing this booklet however discussions sex and sexuality and talking about it in kindergarten are set to continue in fact there's a petition going round the house already almost fifty thousand signatures from those who want to see this particular booklet stopped peter all of a r.t. berlin. germany's dark nancy past still troubles the country though less so in some parts it seems a small village near frankfurt's been thrust into the spotlight after it decided to retain a nazi symbol. i
10:38 pm
think. they'd leave the course a couple of people don't like. having the feeling to know that with. story like this. and this bell has been here for some time and now someone wants to get rid of that. this bell didn't do anyone harm i think there are more terrible things to pay attention to.
10:39 pm
russian bio pic drama hit screens on thursday the film about soviet dissident riots a set of gate of lots of premiered at the bird film festival where it won the silver bear for outstanding artistic contribution its director told us why he was surprised the film was even shown that. simeon could you go to this all of the name. of them was there to. screen you see the. place you were so. if you can see also use a serious case. that you read this is just what. i knew that this. would be obstructed by the political and particularly personal views of the jury and that's what happened there are
10:40 pm
a lot of films no worse than our movies and the german pictures all of them were left with no awards whatsoever for the outstanding movie about the brave events didn't get anything all of that is kind of hard to explain because i think there were other intentions than just fair competition but i was amazed that a lot of it was even shown there when i walked by the convention center where the festival took place i saw a person with a book in german about of lot of and another with the same book in english and then a young german guy came up to me and started asking me who does a lot of was about the culture the one nine hundred seventy s. leningrad culture what kind of struck me was how well our film was received how universal and relatable it was to everyone or women dominated this year's berlin arlie with both of the top prize is awarded to female filmmakers nevertheless the lack of female representation generally in the film industry was discussed at a special festival i think was the topic of sexual harassment of course in the wake
10:41 pm
of the meeting movement that say gay men jr again shared his views on the issue. this is a tough one on the one hand we've got to treat the sexes absolutely equally there should be no gender preference it's obviously on the other hand bearing in mind everything that's going on some sort of support for women is important i think we have fewer problems with this in russia i've heard some unpleasant stories but very few maybe because we have less money for less money there is less power less temptation and. following the florida school massacre of the debate over gun control in the u.s. has come to a head with both sides choosing rather unconventional methods to promote their message for example a wedding ceremony at a pennsylvania church saw the congregation armed to the teeth we including pistols and semiautomatic rifles the display was designed to show their willingness to
10:42 pm
defend their families and their right to carry arms but others seem to be for lying out of love with their guns so. i decided today. i'm going to make sure this weapon will never be able to take a life the only way they can know for sure that this gun will never hurt anyone is it doesn't exist. i just mean holes in everything now all of this stuff is only usable now. and with the debate google has banned the word gun from its shopping search engine claiming it's to protect new users from possible harm but the unintended consequences have left people fuming. google wants to help keep people safe both online and offline so we don't allow the promotion of some products to cost damage harm or injury.
10:43 pm

10:44 pm
disintegrating it's losing its whatever international authorities. and it's also moving to destroy the world and the most important policy of the trumpet ministration by for is its approach towards the real existential crisis climate change here the united states under trump has departed from the entire world. can be read or between the united states and north korea and what they do know that ace in a war we. could very easily. in this case there happens to be a very feasible approach to dealing with the crisis and it's pretty well known. chinese proposal which has been on the table for years and the proposal
10:45 pm
is what's called a double freeze north korea freezes its development of weapons and the clear the clear nuclear and missile developments that freezes them and the united states calls off the constant highly threatening military maneuvers on north korea's border. that could set the stage for negotiations which could deal with the conflict and crisis in a sensible and constructive way. thanks a thing without international my colleague kate parties will be here to bring you right up to date at the top of the hour.
10:46 pm
the new global economic war is unfolding in the realm of education the right to education has been supplanted by the right to access education low it's high education is becoming just another product that can be born and sold but it's not just about education anymore it's also about running a business and what you're good models of the regime look good is also the kind of fellow we couldn't we. want is the place of students in this business model before college i was born now i'm an extremely more higher education the new global economic war. a party divided in with out a clear message democrats face a fundamental dilemma move to the left and reach out to the grassroots and in the
10:47 pm
process alienate its donor base or continue business as usual martin democrats tired of losing. the gun some is not so is not back and could place is not a good country and. yes if. mr philip but i'm not as well above the stump. as existed at the message just the other is. the statement that the culture. of the coast is less sure of this second dismissed all in just a little and biased in the moment of oneself to be too little. mostly albums fossil . play almost anything for the elite based a lot of the kind our data john said on based on our credit tightening can i do not the last caller mr rogers from pratt mcnabb how on amanita. from michelle it cannot
10:48 pm
. in the fucking on the canal moved himself i'm almost feeling now with the fuckin on the cuckoo let's see this original sort of numbers go show the acoustic battle of the good of the season the man from our. voices in his or the whatever the street. facing imo bhargava got a lot of this. the seriousness of a. mascot or this is the guy's report. let's go into let's go right to. max i want to talk about billionaires we're going to talk about warren buffett he's america's favorite billionaire he's the little sweet ukulele playing billionaire but before i
10:49 pm
get to him i want to talk about another billionaire in history the guy was worth four hundred fifteen billion according to a visual capitalist they did a chart of the richest people in history and this guy's name was. he was you know an african king of the whole guy and section mali area present day and at that time that part of the world controlled the entirety of most of the world's gold trade so this guy had a lot of gold so i want to look at actually how good intentions can go horribly wrong and how money. can possibly cause devastation because he went on pilgrimage to mecca and so travelling from africa through cairo down through medina and to mecca and this is what happened along the way which i found very fascinating so i wikipedia mussa made his pilgrimage between
10:50 pm
thirteen twenty four and thirteen twenty five his procession reportedly included sixty thousand men including twelve thousand slaves who each carried four pounds of gold bars and heralds dressed and silk who bore gold staffs organize horses and handled bags he also had these animals that included camels which carried twenty three to one hundred thirty six kilos or fifty to three hundred pounds of gold dust he gave the gold to the poor he met along his routes mussa not only gave to the cities he passed on the way to mecca including cairo medina but also trade the gold for souvenirs and this journey by the way is like widely documented all sorts of contemporary accounts of it along the way as he was travelling so it's well documented it's known to be not just a wikipedia entry mooses generous actions however inadvertently. devastated the economies of the regions through which he passed in the cities the cairo medina and mecca the sudden influx of gold devalued the metal for the next decade prices on
10:51 pm
goods and where is greatly inflated to rectify the gold market on his way back from mecca borrowed all the gold he could carry from moneylenders and cairo high interest this is the only time recorded in history that one man directly controlled the price of gold in the mediterranean so very fascinating as people are celebrating all these huge infrastructure deals whether it's the new silk road or the infrastructure plan that trump is allegedly proposing right. you know spreading around of all this money cause a lot of inflation they cause a lot of problems and they had a way back at unwind all that somehow by normalizing the economy is on his way back and it's a great story i had no idea that the richest man ever in history was this african now he was not the richest guy in the world he was actually worth just four hundred fifteen billion there were several people richer than him including the richest man in the world ever was julius caesar son augustus who's worth two point two trillion dollars but here we see the impact of. like warren buffett famously walks into
10:52 pm
a room if you walked into this room here there's four or five of us here we would be worth on average what probably about five billion dollars each write something along those lines yes so it's an interesting fascinating story shows you that the even back then there was a lot of interesting economic vagaries that must be contemplated when you have such incredible wealth i mean talking about whether it's warren buffett or jeff bezos or the rockefeller's or any of these huge fortunes out of come and gone they do have these ripple effects on the economy and you know they do. many times engender a reaction and then that becomes political policy and then that shapes the economy and shapes politics and shapes our society it's shaping our society right now. so is donald trump of course and there's an infrastructure plan this headline reads higher inflation trump tax and spend boom sends investors looking for fed clues the
10:53 pm
upturn in inflation is already nudging u.s. interest rates higher even before the federal reserve's next meeting five weeks from now the central bank is expected to increase the cost of borrowing in march to keep the economy from overheating but now investors wonder if the federal reserve rates four times and twenty eighteen instead of three as previously planned why well what's complicating the fed's job is a massive shift in washington support for the economy first came the tax cuts and now democrats republicans in congress have busted prior budget caps with a deal to spend an extra three hundred billion and the next two years they're expecting this inflation to ripple through the economy i know the fed has been trying for eight years to cause some inflation and now it's going to come rapidly remember ben bernanke he had said they can control inflation if it will never get out of control because they'll just flip a switch and will you know raise interest rates and calm down inflation that's exactly right he said that there is no risk that there would be a spike of inflation because they have the controls and everything is under their
10:54 pm
control they can flick a switch and they can start to make the maneuvers does a scary to control inflation history tells us that not the case once the inflation genies out of the bottle it tends to feed on itself and become a big inflationary problem and i believe that at the moment we've had a period of fake the flavor. engineer by all the central banks in the day don't have the control that they think that they have and once you start to see this being picked up in markets like the gold market and others you know you've got to start to see it feed on itself in a big way and you know this guy. who travels across africa and the middle east and saudi arabia and caused this hyperinflation where he went how did he retract it it took ten years to retract it but. basically had to buy all the gold back at very high interest rate so in a way as we went through deflation in two thousand and seven eight and nine the fed
10:55 pm
basically did the opposite they were while they were paying high interest rate for all the bad debts they were paying all these bankers to take all their toxic debts and put it on their own balance sheet so something similar would have to happen well the numbers are huge i mean the central banks took on trillions and trillions of dollars of horrible debt and so want to start online and once the dam is broken and all that money starts to come into the system you know i always look at the money velocity number which has recently got to the lowest it's ever been but then six months ago start a tick up once the money velocity starts to pick up and watch that money start to come back in the economy have inflation and combine that with wage inflation and you have the makings of a shift from economic power from wall street to main street here's another story about america's favorite well certainly the media's favorite billionaire the democrats' favorite billionaire and that's warren buffett and it's interesting you know we've been covering this divide in the u.s. and remember koch brothers are great billionaires or their super bad billionaire
10:56 pm
villains george soros is either a villain villain or he's a great humanitarian billionaire warren buffett pretty much everybody agrees he's a great guy except for when he comes up with a so-called tax but is he a good guy well according to the nation secret behind warren buffett's billions america's favorite investor loves monopoly not free markets they use his own words that he himself tells people i only invest in basically monopolies if they have monopoly pricing power that's what i bet on and that's what i invest in and this is what i go for and because he's one of the most successful billionaires of all time investors of all time everybody mimics him thus causing a positive feedback loop where everybody also seeks out monopolies to invest in and empower and so look at. amazon share price why is amazon soar and why is warren buffett actually finally going along a lot of these tech companies where he famously didn't during the dot com boom as because now
10:57 pm
a lot of them have monopoly pricing power they talk about the fact that for example he always dissed airlines he would never invest in airlines he said well he started going long and twenty six teenie owns ten percent of some of these airlines and the reason why was that well the obama administration allowed the merger these mega-mergers so you know how just for airlines and they have huge profits it's often reported how suddenly the airlines have massive profits that's because there are now they're no longer eight but there are four right it's anti-competitive so the way to grow the economy is through competition if there's somebody sitting on top of the economy like buffett with access to unlimited cash to buy these monopoly positions in monopoly companies that's anti-competitive and it should be busted up as such to create more jobs and more wage growth but that's not happening so they're pushing the economy to the edge of a different type of precipice as were saying with the introduction potentially of a big hyper inflationary burst that's going to kill the bond market and then cause
10:58 pm
everything to be reset anyway and then buffett will be long gone having made his hundred billion dollars but at the expense of a viable u.s. economy yet so everybody says that he's a great capitalist he's you know one of the richest guys in america sometimes is the richest sometimes bill gates's i'm so here's an exact quote from him capitalists they say the single most important decision in evaluating a business is pricing power if you've got the power to raise prices without losing business to a competitor you've got a very good business but there's nothing wrong seeking out businesses that are in good positions and able to raise prices but there is something wrong when you have a single entity a private equity firm. the way working with the government to guarantee that he's investing in a sure thing is a monopoly positions that are aided and abetted by a corrupt government that's not free market capitalism that's something else that's
10:59 pm
feudalism again they look at some of the data about how this ethos you know when he was the first to invest in monopoly pricing power and everybody has followed him since then two thirds of all u.s. industries were more concentrated in two thousand and twelve than they were in one thousand nine hundred seven the economist found since the reagan era the federal government has abandoned anti-trust and foresman with markets for products like eyeglasses toothpaste beef and beer whittled down to a few suppliers the consolidation has vastly inflated corporate profits damaged workers and consumers stunted economic growth and supercharged economic inequality supercharge economic inequality the democrats favorite billionaire basically helped facilitate this by leading by example and we have donald trump we have incompetent buffoons that run for president nonstop because we have an economy that has left
11:00 pm
most people like with nothing to lose right supercharged economic inequality that's what his style is done on a make a billion dollar scale and the results are plain to see. so perilous a billionaire walks through the room in the economies around them get devastated whether it's back a hundreds of years ago with man man or what warren buffett walks through your town get ready for a deflationary collapse. all right well fantastic i got to take a break we'll be back right after these important messages. join me every thursday on the alex i'm unsure when i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you.
