it's peter feel that u.s. authorities have been secretly tracking american travelers under a surveillance program called quiet sky the move targets people who haven't been investigated officially by a u.s. agency but still may none the less pose a risk things like suspicious behavior a strong body odor a regular sleeping patterns changing hairstyle clothes anything like that could flag up surveillance surprisingly the unit then compiles individual daily reports now after the story broke the agency should statements claiming it is indeed standard procedure. most was me deeply influenced in food the roots of the t.s.a. mission to ensure the safety and security of passengers crew members and it crossed through the aviation sixty one is cause quite a bit of controversy. reaction to this were investigated reporter dave lindorff and also political commentator steve hideo t.s.a.
has determined that yes surely it is a good honor steve for that matter there actually are that is saying that ugly rabble patterns and maybe changing it and maybe changing hair color which could be suspicious and it's not only have color and body odor those are two to promote examples but you know what let's take a poll of the american people and overwhelmingly they'll say do what it takes to keep us safe how you want people to be able to say bob while walking through an airport too because they can't get arrested they didn't catch a bunch of people with their no fly list they were busy capturing nuns who were going to protests and people like mike. schmidt book barbro shinseki who was every time she she had to make sure she had good underpants because she was strip searched every time she would fly because she was a lawyer for the center for constitutional rights people have to understand is that you don't have any right to fly in the united states certainly it's a privilege to fly and you don't have a right to say whatever you want on
a plane or in an airport you don't have a right to move about the way you want so your freedoms are severely limited to begin with for security purposes and i believe most americans would agree rightfully so these things get out of hand if people don't get to know that they're on a list and get to challenge the list and that was the problem with the no fly list that's the problem with this list that nobody you know i hear out of ten maybe you're out of there and they say why isn't it we know maybe they're watching you maybe they're watching probably if i don't know their air marshals who are armed on my flights most of my flights i don't care who they're watching as long as they're there so i don't have a problem with this what some of the human rights abuses are saying they're saying to t.s.a. maybe singling people out and if you think about according to race or some of that is that the fact is we might be you might be keeping people safe but is it a case of they're focusing on the right people. yeah of course that's what i was talking about when they went after the nuns and the political people they weren't
going after the people that were the real problems and risks and look i got a i got a beard i look like maybe you know some jihadi that list goes to law enforcement in the united states it's going to stay there and it's going to impact your life in some way because you're not going to know it's there and they're going to watch you in different ways that may have played me your promotion could affect all kinds of things you should have a right to know once they decide that you're not a suspicious person supposedly after ninety days that you're on that list and it gets wiped there's nobody saying that happens this is an out of control problem already and it's going to get worse to say it's out of control to say that we've missed to say that we've missed people will be at the because we're watching this when we missed that one there are no new point to the shoe bomber it was a long time ago they say people are going to get promotions people are going to get not get jobs there's no evidence of this this is mass hysteria this is not mass it's hysterical and everyone getting to fly all the privilege if you don't want to
have every car you don't want to be don't fly don't fly. spain is to open special centers to identify migrants now it's part of an emergency plan approved by the government for a jump in the number of new arrivals to the country is a video we see this kind of thing so many times but this was posted on social media folks made a perilous trip it's made landfall on the beach in the southern city kiddies this time the migrants running there in different directions presumably to avoid authorities after that episode dangerous trip across the med in an open boat and of course as we know so many people never even get near the well the number of migrants that arrived in spain in the last six months we can report now as he called the whole of twenty seventeen already other countries are also under pressure too from this influx of refugees so it's really coming a close second numbers they're expected to grow for the two but the might. good suffering doesn't necessarily end when they reach countries like that in europe talking about italy again
a charity there now shockingly has claimed that refugee children are being sexually abused when they arrive in the country it says youngsters are being exploited if they can't pay for basics like food and shelter when we arrived at the last italian station we realize that we cannot get on the train to germany because it's guarded by police to check not only tickets but also the documents for all travelers not knowing what to do we asked for help from a compassionate at the station waiting for another nigerian girl the man offered to help and said he would shelter me in exchange for sexual services. during the trip i was kidnapped my brother was killed in the attempt to free me it was horrible says dan i have been alone with my father's friend before continue the journey subjected me to do ritual and abuse me i was not even eighteen but when we arrived needle this man made me declare i was an adult and his wife after escaping from my father's friend he began abusing me days of terror when i did nothing but think how
to survive. according to save the children in italy almost two thousand girls have been sexually abused hundred sixty of them are children those either pretended to be adults or just recently turned eighteen geo political analyst one of us has told us that europe is incapable of solving the own growing migration crisis and all the problems around it just like this. i think in such a chaotic situation. when you have to handle many incoming refugees it's hard to determine actually what is the present age what is the real age of the migrant the whole migrant system and the way how the authorities take care of those both the royal migrants all girls. under age of eighteen is very alarming it's. really thought that maque rate risk to come to europe this whole situation shows that the migration to europe is
a human tragedy policymakers in the european union and the national states they are largely failing to solve this problem. exactly seventeen minutes past midday coming up continue to track those fierce west coast wildfires in the states still raging pretty much out of control just one of the stories after this quick break. camera. roughly once they showed some leave for the. own cool videos and someone with the broken string apps. running down more on string i don't rightly don't t.v. . i've been saying the numbers mean something they matter to us is over one
trillion dollars in debt more than ten white collar crimes happen each day. eighty five percent of the global wealth you longs to be ultra rich eight point six percent market saw thirty percent last year some with four hundred to five hundred three per circuit first second and bitcoin rose to twenty thousand dollars. china is building two point one billion dollars ai industrial park but don't let the numbers overwhelm. the only numbers you need to remember is one one business show you can afford to miss the one and only. again thanks for watching today so with the u.s. midterm elections on the horizon the republicans now calling for the information on the democrats' alleged illegal snooping on donald trump's presidential campaign to
be released but as american explains their fears the whole issue could instead be buried. here's the feis application that allowed the f.b.i. to spy on former trump campaign advisor carter page republican say that it was a political operation against then candidate trump but the document could contain some interesting information but it's hard to tell because hundreds of pages were redacted now devin nunez chairman of the house intel committee thinks that the public might never find out what really happened there's a stall game going on at d.o.j. and f.b.i. they're trying to stall as much as they can hoping and betting that republicans would lose the house in the fall so transparency in this particular case will only happen if republicans stay in power after the midterm elections in fact calls for transparency in washington seem to work on a partisan basis just this month the democrats called with transparency after trump met with a lot of your putin in finland some even asked for transcripts to be released and the interpreter to be questioned we want the interpreter to come before the
committee we want to see the notes we we want we're going to have a massive effort to try to get to what happened but guess what even that wasn't enough after don't you think americans deserve to know what seem president trumps tax returns some business interests that are into twined for the russia let's remember this document it's a memo released to counter claims of bias against president trump and the f.b.i. and the justice department it was the democratic party's effort to convince the public that the f.b.i. could be trusted but that can't be but it was redacted too and in this case as you can guess there was no right just anger over that from the republicans apparently some redactions or more problematic than others usually when a republican is talking about transparency they want the democrats to be transparent democrats and republicans tend to bring up popular issues like transparency near an election but the fact is what it matters they have nothing to
say about transparency and the you. as a major history of major transparency blunders if republicans were serious about transparency they would start with themselves but the simple fact is the republican party and the democratic party have pushed a lack of transparency in such extreme ways one simple and basic example is the ways in which they have restricted freedom of press for the military actions that have now been going on for nearly seventeen years they have are of keeping the press out there preventing proper reporting and what this is doing is preventing the american people from actually knowing what's going on in these areas. for trade says north korean leader is an open pride of pyongyang successful missile launch is probably not what you'd expect to see in japan but that is what you will find in one very small community of ethnic koreans living there now that they fear
for the growing tide of the far right in japan becoming the focus of the national the redfish investigative group found out what's behind all this on the most news in the. ah this is a song from the d.v.r. king along with a few other relics mr pic keeps this is one of the ways he keeps up his connection to his home life. was he always listened to this every day. mr peck's life has not been easy year and for younger koreans it's not getting easier japan is experiencing a resurgence of the extreme right foreigners known as guy jing and japanese are increasingly frowned upon but it's koreans or those who identify with it. who are in the most danger. of
the. pupils are too afraid to even wear their traditional korean uniforms called the true gori to school here they are wearing japanese uniform and here now their safety through the school gates changed into their eyes and so ready to have their things that some of. these are said though it's in their hands and if so what if anything about that you can see that made us modern japanese racism as an extra could be tied to in japan was foremost imperial power until it was the nazi germany at the end of world war two during the time hundreds of thousands of koreans were forced to work in steve like conditions and japanese mines and factories as the country industrialized at breakneck speed even have to change their names japanese ones while their newspapers and schools were shut down so kids were unable to learn korean but they were taught on terms of nazi germany and japanese schools.
whole. the lawn held his wrists and then saw. him the unit was. popular you want your jewels and you know you know the court of germany took you must go to the wall so all sunk a seaman through so shingle media that you don't like a coke a kid i got the hockey ticket i saw acuity in order to see. a sucker i is a poster boy of the japanese far right taking his cues from donald trump sucker i launched the japan first party in two thousand and sixteen and quickly became infamous for his center for the q. and a scapegoating of japan's ethnic korean minority the latter on to korean voices get the closer the chunkier community comes together.
to sort of me but it was it was isn't. unheard of to do to one does he. mean the loser and that it is easier to consume easy to want to move on and not as in the woods even to normal have been that. it wasn't in the two years that he wasn't. in this area good news or the good will even. if. for us i believe this quick update on those of fires in california firefighters federal troops battling devastating wildfires at least eight people have lost the lives of nineteen others reporting still missing well this started about
a week ago authorities say they still won't get a handle on it either they've only got less than a quarter they say can tell it's already destroyed more than seven hundred homes and forty thousand residents have been evacuated from the region really scary so we've been hopefully get some better weather this soon and no other people would be put to risk. from say. twenty four seven nickels why not check out our if you don't download it already to always be across all the news. the idea of spending money to acquire region to acquire territory to acquire wealth is an oxymoron there is no more wealth to acquire the ecosystem is collapsing the
economy is flooded with worthless paper and the species is migrating over to the digital speer because of these networks and platforms people are uploading their minds into cyberspace and hope to become immortal so every dollar spent on defense every dollar spent by the pentagon is a wasted dollar that's a one thousand eight hundred seventeen sixteenth century mindset it's completely antiquated and it's utterly worthless. right we're all set to start in five. he's not going to talk about the no fly list just reviewed right after the mars explorers one who would have their new. record.
to say let me know. i'll be honest room full welcome to sophie until i'm so the sheriff not said today i woke up lots to talk about in our program and our guest is. good luck little. this is boom bust broadcasting around the world today we're coming to you from new york city for a jam packed show which includes professor of economics americas at the university
of massachusetts amherst richard wolfe plus we look again it hacking and from an interesting angle with r.t. correspondent trinity charges plus we're also joined by the c.e.o. of kony says limited tom kaufman to find out about a new crypto currency and monetary system all that ahead but with so much we get right to it. to help get an economist perspective on some of the issues of the day we are once again pleased to be joined by professor of economics of marriages that university massachusetts amherst richard well professor thank you so much for being with us again and it's good to be with you in person to be here so you know you talk about trade all the time and we're in the middle of all these trade wars and we get all caught up in sort of the issues of the day and what did the president tweet and who offend this day or the next but give us a little perspective sort of a primer on trade over the years and the use of tariffs but basically a tariff is
a tax and it's the government deciding to put a tax on something and parentheses it kind of interesting that republicans would normally tell us that they're against taxes are now busily pushing taxes it's just a tax that's designed to shape the trade so for example if you tax good coming in from another country that has a particular name called a tyrant that's just the name of that kind of tax so why do you do that to protect the american company producing that good. inside the united states from the competition abroad if the people abroad can make the quality better or the price lower then americans will buy that good and to protect the businesses here who might be producing something not so good at the high price you put it tower of because it it doesn't level the playing field it tilts it but of course has never admitted that way it's always said as the president is doing that the field was
already kilted and by my doing it i'm bringing it back into balance in order to know whether he's telling the truth or not you would really have to know the details which are not public about how this is done what it costs to produce them over there and what it costs here so it's a murky area but the bottom line is it's a tax meant to manipulate the conditions under which goods are sold across countries boundaries you know it's very interesting when you talk about well republicans of traditional you know they're against taxes and and i guess that's been at least a montra but they're also in favor of free markets and you know they're not free when you know protectionist policies like this so it's a directly at odds with you know the values that they espouse let's talk about one particular area and this is been in the news lately the auto industry which frankly of all the folks out there they've really been frontal in opposition to wall street
journal had a full page ad last week and they say we appreciate your efforts but you really are wrong on this that it's going to cost jobs not just in the short term but the longer term and car prices are going to go up but these haven't worked out over the past tariffs on autos give us some history on that yes the united states was a leader in the automobile industry so in the early years when it was really developing that we had a better build out automobile production system we were in favor of free trade because we wanted the world to be the market for what americans were good at producing butt. as always happens after a while other countries wanted to get in on this japanese companies german companies they wanted also to get the profits of a world that was becoming more and more dependent on automobiles so they did what countries have always done in that circumstance they protected their little market from the american onslaught because we were the most efficient producing the lowest price for the ford motor company famous in that and the best quality but they
caught up by putting the tower if by the way the united states caught up to britain after we thought being a colony of theirs by putting tower of in this country so we could build up it in economics it's called the infant industry or so it was so what so what do we left we left england because of tariffs and then we after a while said you know what we'll have some of our own absolutely to protect us in the one nine hundred seventy s. the japanese and the germans became better at producing cars there's no nice way to say it otherwise that's the truth that's what americans discovered we were very good at producing boats with four wheels yes they were but they were better the japanese primarily producing efficient effective cars as you say at a cheaper price for a cheaper price and that with the germans with v.w. and so on so what happened the one nine hundred seventy s. was suddenly the american automobile industry had real competitors and they didn't want to face them because they would lose profits in the free market so suddenly
their commitment to free market order that various dinners when they get up and give a speech flew out the window and they got what's called quotas in the one nine hundred seventy s. the united states threatened tariffs on the japanese particularly and in exchange for not getting the tower put on them the japanese agreed to what's called a quota system they would not send more than a certain number of japanese vehicles to the united states in any given year people may remember there were times when the if you wanted to buy a honda you went. you're hundred dealer and you signed up on a waiting list because you had to wait for the company the next year to get it where they have a quotas or a all that quota is is an alternative to a tariff that has the same purpose of protecting now here's the most important story about cars back in the one nine hundred sixty s. the united states which was having a fight with europe about protecting each other's industries decided to levy
a tariff on trucks ok that tariff twenty five percent would talk and a big tax on any truck made outside the united states that they bring in that made trucks in this country wildly profitable because it meant that ford g.m. chrysler could jack up the price of their trucks because they didn't have to face competition since the book person outside bring it in would have to lop another twenty five percent on ok that's been in effect for the last half a century the notion of the united states as some innocent that is suffering from the tower of of others is a pretense again the only reason from can get away with it is people don't know and the mainstream media have a hard time confronting granted he says so many things i know it's difficult but nonetheless here is an example of a really gross situation americans didn't fall in love with a truck. americans love their trucks because it's very profitable to produce
a truck the most profitable product the g.m. and ford have but they don't have it because they're good at trucks they have it because there's a protective tower of that has been imposed that prevents japanese and german and italian and other companies from bringing the trucks in here so there's a little bit of a fakery here a theater of even steven but it isn't the truth at all a little bit maybe an understatement before we go to another subject i do want to get to another one but where do you see this ending all these trade wars or and as you say the theater surrounding it i think it's going to be a sad situation for mr trump because i think it's a hopeless quest let me explain it this way mr trump is trying to position himself as the champion make america great again by leveling the playing field he's basically saying i want to be able to sell goods in your country while i don't do allow you to do it here i want the terms improved for us at your expense now what
other leader can do that if the recent may in england or mccraw in france or mrs merkel and in a germany if they went along with this if they caved in their own people would throw them out because they would be looked at as having given away the conditions for their working people to enable mr trump to have an easier time politically in his country this is a not big i'm not going to work that out they'll be lots of verbiage and lots of cover to make it look like i've gotten concessions i notice he already began that talk today but the truth of it is this can go this cannot work because the pressure inside these countries to get protection for an economy in trouble is too strong and the ability to force your trading partner to absorb all your costs that won't work either so i think he's going to be badly disappointed and it'll be a little bit like the affordable care act a big f. . lots of noise in verbiage but not much to show my last question is you know that
he really mr trump built a coalition which is a tried and true coalition and that as you know business interests the large banks and others and fortune five hundred company executives on the one hand and also the political support the money and then you know conservative americans and nothing wrong with that but that does seem to be sort of falling apart why we mention the auto industry but there's a lot other business leaders do you think this is sustainable from a political perspective i know that's not exactly your area of expertise but i imagine you have an opinion on it absolutely look the one concrete achievement put aside all the verbiage the one thing he did was the december two thousand and seventeen tax cut an enormous gift to the business community in this country and you're quite right that solidified their support they have no reason to be critical of him he delivered a bigger tax cut than they could have reasonably expected so he did that but in the
meanwhile the mass of the people whose votes he needs let's call them the older whiter traditional american working class they're still waiting for the big delivery of jobs of incomes of a great america again that's real or make believe we'll never know they haven't gotten their goodies so where is he going to get it for them all right he wants to take wealth from other parts of the world by changing the trading arrangements they're not going to let him do that well what's left for him he's not going to tax the rich he's one of them he's helping them and that's too late for that there's one thing left which is to really whack the poor people of this country to take away the government supports the government programs for them in order to move some of that to the people who back them i think he's going to try to do that i think you already see in the cut backs of course the board in these budget proposals you see that on the way. ok but that threatens to make the mass of the americans
a bottom sixty sixty five percent of our people very angry very bitter and if you motivate them if you agitate them then mr trump it will be history very quick so he's in a very tough spot and i think his desperation his tweets aura flexion that after all the fakery of the language he's we'll options are not looking very good sobering but very informative thank you pressure richard wolfe appreciate being with you in person thank you very much for the opportunity. hacking has become a grim reality over the past few decades a new methods are being developed and deployed all the time however in modern times new targets have come into scope to take a deeper dive into the tech security.
