has even been formally established for now the capital is coming from soft banks vision fun and directly from soft bank group and the poor follow a pass to the innovation fund when it begins operation rapid launch from columbia in two thousand and fifteen and now also operates in seven countries including major markets in argentina brazil and mexico robbi delivers prescription medicines groceries and takeout as well as digital payment services and claims to have twenty percent monthly growth rates. and of a two year legal spat it had been announced that mobile phone chip manufacturer qualcomm will receive at least four point five billion dollars from apple the deal was crucial for qualcomm as an ongoing legal battle threatened their business model which combines the manufacturing of chips and a patent licensing division that makes money on relatives from companies that use their tech the deal also includes a six year leasing deal with apple and a multi-year deal for qualcomm to supply them with cell phone modem chips the piece of tech that allows your phone to connect with towers the deal was just reached as
12:31 pm
apple's current modem manufacturer intel announced that they would not join the race to make modems for much anticipated five g. networks qualcomm says that they expect to ship between one hundred fifty and one hundred seventy million chips in the third quarter of this year that's a decrease twenty five percent year over year it was expected that qualcomm would ship one hundred eighty million chips in q three qualcomm stock is spike nearly four percent on the news just about scraping the ninety dollars mark before leveling back out. turning to the international controversy over the role of chinese tech giant huawei in building the next generation five g. internet infrastructure it had been revealed that it will have a limited role in building out the united kingdom's five g. network after the daily telegraph reported on a cabinet meeting to air concerns about hallways previously unknown role a leak inquiry led prime minister of tourism may to accuse and sack her defense
12:32 pm
minister gavin williamson mr williamson denied any role in leaking information about the cabinet meeting but miss may said no other credible version of events to explain this leak has been identified here to discuss this further is global regulatory attorney miles outwards so miles welcome let's dig a little deeper into the story the prime minister believe that there was compelling evidence that he leaked government secrets however allies now are demanding may's government to produce and publish evidence against him what do they have on him and can they even produce anything. i think they can i mean if we go back and we look at the story itself the national security council is united kingdom it specifically to discuss wild ways assistance with helping to build out their five g. network now it is assumed that. everyone there really supported that except mr williamson himself because this story goes that he was somewhat influenced by the
12:33 pm
united states reluctance to have anything to do with the company itself now what's really interesting is the day that the national security council met there was a story leaked to the daily telegraph it's my understanding that they do have documentation that can absolutely confirm that there was an eleven minute conversation the same day the council met between mr williamson and the daily telegraph journal. writer now what's going to be very difficult for mr williamson is even though he has resigned from that position he is still subject to the u.k. secrecy act and he could be brought up on some more serious charges so i don't believe his resignation itself and it's the story so right now there's a lot of concern as the u.s. is engaged in a very vocal campaign to keep the chinese tech companies out of the advanced five g. networks europe is however more open than the u.s.
12:34 pm
and taking a logical response framework and a measured approach when about getting as about the way the companies are supposed to be evaluated in the first place logically rather than biased. well i mean that's a great question i think for private situations yes but this is a very complicated situation because the united states has already said that they do not want way or another related chinese companies e.t.e. to be involved with building out the five g. network and what the united states is very concerned about is the association between wa way the chinese government and the chinese military and the united states believe at least a trump administration believes that you know this company is a platform for cyber security concerns and also terrorism and honestly we have seen a history of chinese espionage against united states know how what's interesting is
12:35 pm
in the united kingdom in the european union they believe that these risks can be mitigated and they believe that even though the company has close ties to the chinese government which most chinese companies do that they can put in the safeguards to ensure that these types of situations won't occur so the u.s. has had notable facts on its partners in the five eyes intelligence sharing alliance australia new zealand and canada they all boys their doubts about huawei till however they have their concerns have fallen on deaf ears and south east asia even amongst treaty allies philippines and thailand southeast asia has now become a key node and while ways global web tell us more about their relationship now this is very interesting because again the trump administration has gone on record to say any country that allows wild way and z t e to help in structuring their five g. infrastructure the united states will not share any information with them including
12:36 pm
intelligence information so these countries are really going out on the limb but they feel it's worth it so in southeast asia. for example while way has had significant influence so for example in brunei there assisting the bernard government in. building out there and that work in there is even a territorial dispute right now between china emperor knight so regardless of that the nice still on board in thailand and the philippines both countries have signed memorandums of understanding and both countries are looking to while away to help build out their five g. network so what i'm seeing is as that five g. network expands in southeast asia the logical choice would be to go the way i want to bow latin america they don't seem to be too worried at all by these accusations huawei is reportedly planning its data centers in latin america and it has its eyes on chill
12:37 pm
a chilean president sebastian pinera as goal has always been to attract more investment from chinese companies and technologies and telecom and recently mobile operator has carried out a five g. test and using equipment from the way so tell us more about that. now what's really interesting about this situation is latin america is twofold first of all latin america is the second largest trading partner with china for telecommunications in fact that has experience about. you know an eighteen percent growth in the last several years but what's also interesting is trump administration has also cut a to most of latin america because of immigration concerns by thirty percent so i think the truck the ministry could have done a better job in elise trying to incentivize these countries not to work with wild way but it's very interesting because there was a quote from the former mexican ambassador to china and he said you know before
12:38 pm
trump came in there was somewhat of an on the written understanding that countries like mexico and other countries in. latin america would really follow along with the united states was doing especially for national security is concerned but once trump guided. that's no longer in effect so these countries are are or you know building. the infrastructure china has also provided huge economic incentives and in fact there has been visits by the chinese premier to latin america so i think that they're really currying favor with latin america and again i see an expansion into latin america but one thing to keep in mind kristie is that huawei and to a lesser degree z.t. is only one of four countries companies internationally that can really provide that five g. infrastructure so there's really no other alternatives to go to you know you have
12:39 pm
nokia and you have ericsson but they only represent a small amount of the market if you want to build out a five g. network in your country you gotta go to huawei thank you so much miles tory attorney. thank you so much kristie. time now for a quick break but first some breaking news we reported yesterday on the prospects of u.s. president donald trump's nominee for federal reserve c. stephen moore earlier today president announced via twitter that mr moore has withdrawn himself from consideration here because when we return the u.s. commodity futures trading commission chair says the explosion of interest in qatar currency could open the door for a new clearing house this investigative journalist give us the details. the bank of england announced it would afford interest rates at zero point seven five percent following last month's decision to extend the deadline to october thirtieth pelé
12:40 pm
forward from the british american business association joins us to discuss what this means for the e.u. u.k. turmoil. and as we go to break here the numbers at the club. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race in. spearing dramatic development only closely i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very. time to sit down and talk.
12:41 pm

12:46 pm
eight member countries both within and outside the pacific asian region they will meet through sunday among the agenda items for the a.t.b. die. again it's are some significant initiatives on climate change and plastic pollution in oceans that a.t.v. is now planning to spend eighty billion dollars by two thousand and thirty to mitigate climate impacts on asian countries the summit host like many countries in the region is extremely vulnerable to rising sea levels as warmer temperatures continue to melt glaciers and polar ice caps earlier today the eighty launched their planned action plan for healthy oceans and sustainable blue economies the plan calls for the a.t.p. to spend five billion dollars in the next five years to fight marine plastic lucian which they say threatens the regional marine economies. cryptocurrency is finally gaining legitimacy after years of being mocked as a worthless fad now it is finally getting the recognition from regulators the c.r.t.c. reported an explosion of interest in crypto and expects to see more companies
12:47 pm
applied to become really regulated clearing houses the state of washington passed a bill that recognizes the legal status of electronic records pertaining to distributed letters like block chains and singapore and canada central banks became the first to successfully complete a cross border block payment with all these new breakthroughs a hash tag drop gold campaign has started amongst investors urging them to drop gold for a better store of value that coin the campaign started by greyscale argues both gold and share many of the same properties of good money they're both scarce durable verifiable and accepted across borders joining us to break it all down is investigative journalist ben swan. so ben let's start with the c.f.d. see this is really interesting because to see regulates these clearing houses and therefore they want more companies to apply to become their houses but that doesn't really go against what cryptocurrency really meant to do one of the main benefits
12:48 pm
of watching is cutting out the middleman and the facilitator and increasing efficiency. in their true design are pretty much meant to be trust assistance so how does that work with what the c f t c does. musher it does work kristie i mean the word there is such an important word crustless system when you say that term to a lot of people that i'm not sure exactly what it means why would you want anything to be trust. as you know simply means that you do not require the trust of the into t. on the other side the bank on the other side or the into the on the other side that's holding to actually be able to prove that it's there because on the block chain everything every transaction is verifiable it is a trust list system one that doesn't require verification from someone else you don't take their word for it you're able to verify it for yourself so with these clearing houses what's interesting here is that the c. f.t.c. essentially saying we want we want more companies to come and apply to become these clearing houses but the c. of c. as an entity its role is to do verification to make sure that all these things are
12:49 pm
working the way they supposed to be but the whole big block chain ledger the design under socially the whole design is that it is a trust of the system and it doesn't need organizations like the c. f.t.c. so those two things and we're really talking about the purist here those two things are in direct opposition to each other as the city see attempts to determine the value of these technological innovation innovations and one of those innovations are the assets based future products so how much of it is really based around futurists. i think a lot of this is really based around crypto futures you and i both know i mean crypto futures are on their way and they're going to become a major part financed coming. up here probably in the next five years or so but i think again it goes back to the c.f.d. see it feels like to me is is attempting to find its own validation as an organization in this sea of cryptocurrency where it really doesn't necessarily have
12:50 pm
a role so you know maybe within the context of crypto futures trading it has a role but in terms of being an organization that does verification no not really there and you know determining the value of innovations i would be willing to bet you that most people associated with the c.f. g c don't know whole lot about what's happening in terms of blocking innovation so why would they be able to determine its value i mean again this is an organization that i think is trying to make relevant when it's not entirely relevant to the situation now mohammed to singapore and canada the central bank has to settle a completed their first cross border digital payment and they did so without the middleman the third party that we said was unnecessary so that they highlight a lot of cost reductions and efficiency and they expected to start delivering tangible results by two thousand and twenty however there still are some concerns i need to be addressed tell us about them. yeah just a couple quick things on this so obviously you know with the central banks in singapore and canada running the system they did so they were able to do this
12:51 pm
transfer as you said cutting out the middleman but sort of but not entirely in that they were assisted by j.p. morgan or j.p. writing j.p. as we know it was launched their own coin because they're trying to compete with crypto currency and that swift system so there's a lot to figure out there but the main thing is again when central banks are doing this it isn't necessarily an application that works for the public or unnecessary because the public can do this on their own again the beauty of crypto currency is to remove dependency on things like central banks and that's again this journalist ben swan thank you so much. christie thinks. the bank of england love interest rates unchanged at point seven five percent on thursday following the agreement to extend the deadline for the u.k.'s withdrawal from the e.u. until october this is the first meeting of the m.p.c.
12:52 pm
since leaders agreed to the bragger that extension the central bank revised up its twenty one thousand growth forecast to one point five percent rather than expected growth in the eurozone with unemployment at all time low and china contributing to his more optimistic outlook joining us to discuss these figures is hello for which board a member at the irish american business association so hi hillary hey krissy pleasure now let's talk first about the bags and the uncertainty that's been felt by all these businesses so they expect that their business has contracted every single quarter last year and the governor of the bank of england warned that it would be unwise to rule out the prospect of britain cashing out of the e.u. without an agreement right now two thirds of these firms say that they are prepared as prepared as possible for a no deal bragg's it so tell us the immediate threat right now has been delayed and pushed back on talk but it's still there how likely is a no deal outcome yes what he was actually talking about was crushing out of the
12:53 pm
e.u. and that's of course mark carney he's the chair of the bank of england and if you look at it you look at overall the predictions of the diaper dictions of not come true growth is actually beating the predictions have been increased from one point two percent to one point five percent in terms of growth so almost our predictions actually haven't come true things are holding steady so yes interest rates they predicted are likely to be raise a number of times basically because growth of strong unemployment in the u.k. is predicted to go as low as three point five percent and it hasn't been that low basically in history and certainly not since one thousand seventy three. so right now the delay departure has been really expensive costly taxpayer tens of millions of dollars on wednesday as the government scrapped contracts with the very companies that were supposed to bring essential goods in the case of a disruptive brags that people weren't happy and even members of may's own party had urged her to step aside after she failed to deliver a deal twice so is a possibility and who would take her place well the suddenly possibility of course
12:54 pm
has been a lot of disunity within the party it's been very fractious mainly because a lot of the members of the party that she has she actually put in place were of course remain as and that's caused friction within the conservative party i would say that there's a number of people that have the current home secretary she's actually a possibility and then there's also those of which have been i would say sort of somewhat fractious nigel farrar she's a stablish the breck sit party and that's a definite possibility although it's predicted probably you would only get about ten percent of the national vote and many people of course look to door boris johnson boris johnson the former mayor of london he's sort of like i would call him a trump figure in the u.k. many see him as rather contentious he's been throwing a spanner in the works for quite some time so he is and then there's also talk of course of reese and jacob recent he is viewed those being rather sort of an any toady in good old boy and maybe not as likely so probably the current home secretary she has the greatest chance the only thing is she has problems within her
12:55 pm
own constituency so the chance maybe of her even being reelected is going to be very difficult. despite all these uncertainties here economic growth has exceeded expectations this quarter and we see wages outperform inflation and given these data points the m.p.c. meeting minutes were actually quite hawkish do you think we'll see an interest rate hike faster than we previously anticipated absolutely the monetary policy committee this is really when they met they did not know that the deadline would be extended that's october thirty first to halloween they had not known that before and yes the reason that they're going to raise interest rates is as i mentioned it's going to be because g.d.p. the growth predictions are have been increased and because the unemployment is so low so absolutely maybe even two three more times this year is the general prediction. we know that you are close from to bars so i wanted to have some words for i just wanted to be able to say in tones of all global audience that i worked yes i worked with and for bart and i just want to say that he respected so much
12:56 pm
views to me he personified doughty family he was extremely intelligent he was also ricky he was a pleasure to work with him for he was a good man i met his wife sherry he was a family man he was a grandfather and he cared very much about his family but also dedicated to the truth and so respected everyone not just here at the studio but people of all different viewpoints and i am grateful to the opportunity to have worked with him for him a fine a good man and we should all miss him every you leave some very big shoes to fill he does hillary for which board member of the british american association thank you chrissy. and finally we now are now moving forward we know moving can be very expensive and a very difficult project but what about the capital of a nation of two hundred eighty five million people from one city to another how would that even work we may just find out the planning minister of indonesia says president joko widodo is intent on moving the indonesian capital from jakarta
12:57 pm
a city of ten million to a location on higher ground jakarta is built on sinking swampy land and experts say major portions of jakarta will likely be under water as early as two thousand and fifty official estimates of the cost of the move are now at thirty three billion on the other hand the planning minister suggested some offsetting benefits and reduction of traffic gridlock in jakarta which the minister says will offset the economy nearly seven billion dollars annually. that's it for this time you can catch boom bust on direct t.v. channel three twenty one dish network channel two eighty or streaming twenty four seven on pluto t.v. the free t.v. channel one thirty two or as always you can hit us up at youtube dot com bust r t c . and next time.

news in the morning. on the war. total room go to. war not. all your. post gets to move for you. it has nothing to do with the propaganda that the daily mail is pushing but when you have a population that might be susceptible to propaganda they can easily be manipulated into thinking that fracking is something other than what it is it's not economically viable it costs more to frack then then then you make a profit it's cash flow negative it's also environmentally negative you destroy the
12:59 pm
environment incredibly. my seven years doing drugs my nephews was still in drugs my sister just with doing drugs it was like an epidemic of drug abuse america's public enemy number one in the united states is drug abuse he started going after the users in the prison populations who are we started treating sick people people who are addicted to these drugs like criminals while i was on the hill we became convinced that the war on drugs was a mistake there are countless numbers of people who are in prison for inconceivable sentences for foreign or minor offenders in the drug trade it's a lot watching your show. him issue him wave and say by day as you're walking out of the business it's just it doesn't get easier.
