Keri and Carter are joined by Daniel Miller, author of Texit: Why and How Texas Will Leave The Union. They discuss the impossibility of "serving two masters," and the difference between supporting the principles behind America and America's current Federal Government. Daniel describes the post-WWII trend of political sovereignty around the world, and the popularity within Texas of the idea of independence. He addresses many of the major fears and doubts expressed by cynics, including financial and military concerns, and compares Texit to Brexit, explaining that leaving the United States is more like leaving the European Union than many people might imagine. Which is more realistic, he asks: reigning in 2.5M unelected Washington bureaucrats, or convincing fellow Texans (many of whom are already supportive of the idea) to vote their way out of the Union?

Doomsday Watch with Arthur Snell

The Cold Warriors of the postwar world never dreamed that Western democracies would become to rely on a global information network – and that our very openness could be turned against us. As the stories of Brexit, COVID and Trump coalesce into one nightmare tale of disinformation and weaponised lying, Arthur Snell asks whether democracy can survive in a post-truth world. If you control the information space, do you control the future? And after the pandemic, can we withstand the infodemic? • “If you've got enough money, you can ensure that people hear your talking points day in day out, hour after hour.” – Amil Khan • “COVID was a means to test these weapons. Climate denial is the next battleground, and it will make the anti-lockdown and COVID stuff look like child's play.” – Darren Loucaides • “If tech companies can't moderate memes and text, how on Earth are they going to moderate the Metaverse?” — Nina Jankowicz • “Soviet Union was Terminator 1: bulky and ungainly. Now Putin's Russia is Terminator 2, very fluid and adaptable.” – Peter Pomerantsev • “Our systems are threatened not by people who are suffering but by comfortable middle class people who are bored and looking to go on a crusade.” — Tom Nichols • “What is shocking is how fast people will jump from a failure of policy itself to the idea that the whole edifice of liberal democracy needs to be junked in favour of a celebrity strongman.” — Tom Nichols • “Our openness is a weakness. We can't go into Russia and broadcast like the BBC can – but RT can come here and say anything it likes.” – Nina Jankowicz Want to support us?

The Disruptive Entrepreneur
Nigel Farage: Britain's Most Controversial Politician

The Disruptive Entrepreneur

Play Episode Listen Later Jan 17, 2022 66:48


An incredibly exciting and thought-provoking episode with arguably one of Rob's most Disruptive guests to date, broadcaster and former politician Nigel Farage! Nigel has never been shy in saying what he thinks and backing those thoughts up with actions. Listen in to this episode to hear Nigel's honest thoughts on Coronavirus, UK politics, the world order and what being a Disruptor really means. KEY TAKEAWAYS  Nigel believes that people disrupt things to challenge the status quo. Disruption is often needed to change things for the better, Nigel thinks things haven't been disrupted nearly enough in the world yet. It is plain for all to see that there are a lot of differing and polarising views on coronavirus. Nigel Farage thinks governments haven't been honest enough from the start and it's something we can learn to live with going forward. He is not prepared for his liberties to be taken away from him again so will not obey any further lockdowns. There is a big difference of mindset between a corporate business and the entrepreneur. The government may understand big business somewhat but they certainly don't have a clue about small businesses and entrepreneurs. Nigel's experience of working with the political class has shown him that there is a massive disconnect between the UK government and businesses. It was inevitable that Brexit was going to cause massive changes, there was always going to be winners and losers. However, Nigel thinks there are countless upsides to small business owners and entrepreneurs that the government still hasn't utilised. Tax and Welfare need reforming drastically. Past governments have de-skilled the British population and have also turned what should be a safety net, into a very large welfare state. It has changed young people's mindsets and there is a lack of aspiration among the younger generations especially. Nigel would love to run for Prime Minister but with the current UK system this is just not possible. He thinks that the UK political system needs a complete overhaul and bringing into the 21st century, starting with removing the first past to post system and the house of lords. Nigel believes that Boris Johnson has a very clever act and it has got him very far in his political career. However, he thinks the mood of the public after many lies and most recently, the revealing of all of the covid parties in government, will very likely be the end to it. The de-platforming and silencing of conservative voices across social media platforms is worrying to Nigel. He thinks it's the medias way of trying to gain back control.   BEST MOMENTS   “You're not doing it because you're trying to cheese everyone else off, you're doing it actually because you think the status quo as it is needs shaking up” “Not one of them has ever worked in a small business, not one of them has ever set one up” “There is a complete disconnect with the world of entrepreneurship, of the world of business” “I'm an old style free-marketer, I believe in a safety net for those that can't look after themselves, of course I do” “Our democracy needs to be brought into the 21st century” “There is a limit to free speech, there always has been, but I think the limit on conservative voices is bad” VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ bit.ly/Robsupporter https://robmoore.com/podbooks ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

Was läuft aus Konsumentensicht im Ausland besser als in der Schweiz? «Kassensturz» blickt über die Landesgrenzen: In den USA gibt es eine Geld-zurück-Garantie, in Österreich helfen Sammelklagen zur Durchsetzung der Konsumentenrechte, und in England müssen Produkte «reparierfähig» sein. Grosszügige Rückgaberegeln: Geld-zurück-Garantie in den USA In den USA können vedorrte Pflanzen, gebrauchte Sofas, angeknabberte Lebensmittel oder auch verschwitzte T-Shirts zurückgegeben werden – und die Kundinnen und Kunden erhalten das Geld zurück. «Kassensturz» fragt: Sind diese Rückgabe-Versprechen ein Auswuchs der konsumgetriebenen amerikanischen Gesellschaft oder ein Vorbild für die Schweiz? Reparieren statt wegwerfen: Grossbritannien macht es vor In der EU sind Gerätehersteller dazu verpflichtet, ihre Produkte «reparierfähig» zu bauen und auch die Ersatzteile während mindestens sieben Jahren zu garantieren. Damit soll dem Wegwerfwahnsinn entgegengewirkt werden. «Kassensturz» zeigt diese Praxis in Grossbritannien, das aus Überzeugung und trotz Brexit an dieser Regelung festhält. Warum gilt das «Recht auf Reparatur» nicht auch in der Schweiz? Starkes Konsumentenrecht: Sammelklagen-Pionier Österreich Österreich kennt das Instrument der Sammelklage seit 20 Jahren, die EU zieht bis Ende 2022 nach. «Kassensturz» spricht mit dem «Erfinder» der österreichischen Sammelklage über Erfolge und Misserfolge bei der Anwendung dieses Konsumentenrechts und zeigt, warum in der Schweiz Parlament und Bundesrat seit Jahren die Einführung von Gruppenklagen verhindern. Bankenplatz Südafrika: Konkurrenzloses Onlinebanking Die Schweiz rühmt sich gerne als fortschrittlichen und modernen Bankenplatz.

Venom Prison vocalist Larissa Stupar is our guest this week! We discuss the challenge of making their new album, Erebos, as the world continued to change around them, recording vocals at her home studio, why the artwork is such an important piece of Venom Prison's presentation, the healing effect of writing “Pain of Oizys” about past trauma, returning to the stage at the Bloodstock festival after over a year off, and how Brexit has affected bands from the U.K. touring in Europe. We also talk about how society needs to offer support to the lower class with more compassion, the message and marketing that promotes addiction to social drugs, and harmful immigration policies across the world. Petar and Brandon discuss Sammy Hagar's claim that he was asked to replace Phil Anselmo in Pantera, Corey Taylor's prediction of a new Slipknot album in 2022, and Avenged Sevenfold working on completing their own new record in January.

Depuis un an, le Royaume-Uni est sorti de l'Union européenne. Les conséquences n'ont pas tardé à se manifester comme dans cette rue commerçante à Londres, dans le quartier de Hackney. De notre correspondante à Londres, Stéphane gère un café et une épicerie fine sur Broadway Market, dans le nord-est de Londres. Pour ce Français installé dans la capitale il y a 17 ans, c'est encore douloureux de parler du Brexit. Depuis un an, le personnel se fait plus rare, il y a moins de travailleurs compétents dans le service et plus d'étudiants européens. « C'est le délire. À une époque il y aurait eu bien plus de Français, là sur une équipe de 20 il n'y a que deux Français et les Britanniques bien plus qu'avant », constate-t-il.  Quant aux produits qui viennent d'Europe, leur prix ne fait qu'augmenter à cause des douanes. Difficile de faire ses stocks comme avant surtout que, dans son épicerie, Stéphane vend majoritairement de la nourriture importée du continent. « On est encore un peu dans le flou, les règles recommencent à changer, ça me dépasse. De passer d'un marché complètement ouvert. Par exemple, je n'arrive plus à me procurer des Saint-Marcellin. Ils ont mis un embargo, on n'en envoie plus en Angleterre et je ne sais pas vraiment pourquoi », dit Stéphane.  ► À lire aussi : Brexit : face aux pénuries de main-d'œuvre, Londres assouplit ses règles d'immigration Privilégier les produits britanniques La clientèle n'est plus la même non plus, conséquence aussi de la pandémie. Mike, le poissonnier à quelques minutes de l'épicerie de Stéphane est moins pessimiste. Cet Anglais se dit peu impacté par le Brexit. Il décide de privilégier les produits britanniques. Nous nous approvisionnons principalement au Royaume-Uni. Donc, il y a eu plus de poissons et de fruits de mer disponibles. Nous avons décidé d'aider les pêcheurs que nous soutenons normalement en vendant plus dans les restaurants, en vendant plus dans notre magasin parce qu'ils ont besoin de notre soutien. C'est vrai que pour les produits que nous achetons en France ou en Italie, le prix est plus élevé et les produits moins disponibles. ► À écouter aussi : Brexit : 10 mois après, le temps des regrets ? « Ces effets prendront beaucoup plus de temps à se concrétiser » Et pour le personnel, il n'embauche que des Britanniques ou des étrangers qui vivent ici depuis longtemps. Pour l'économiste du Kings College de Londres, Jonathan Portes, tout cela va prendre du temps. Le Brexit reste une mauvaise nouvelle pour l'économie du pays, mais les ménages ne ressentent pas encore ses conséquences. Alors que le commerce a certainement été touché par le Brexit, il n'a pas encore eu beaucoup d'impact sur le PIB, les emplois et les salaires. Ces effets prendront beaucoup plus de temps à se concrétiser. Ainsi, la meilleure estimation que nous puissions faire est que sur 5, 10 ou 15 ans, la croissance du Royaume-Uni sera affectée, mais il ne faut pas exagérer. Le Royaume-Uni restera une économie ouverte de taille moyenne et petite, commerçant beaucoup avec l'Union européenne et le reste du monde. Nous aurons du mal à nous développer pour élever le niveau de vie, mais cet effet ne sera pas catastrophique, nous serons considérablement pauvres, mais ce ne sera pas la fin du monde. Il ajoute que les échanges commerciaux entre l'Union européenne et le Royaume-Uni ont chuté de 15 % depuis le Brexit…

Let's look back at the big financial events of 2021 and the lessons we learned. 2021 was an exciting year in markets, we had meme stocks, SPACs, hedge fund blow ups and the mainstreaming of crypto.  The stock market went from strength to strength this year. The year started out with the short squeezes in GameStop and then AMC.As global economies bounced back from the pandemic, supply chains buckled due to shortages either of goods or people to deliver them. The squeeze on the labor market pushed up wages, and the press was filled with tales of the great resignation. We saw soaring oil and commodities prices and the collapse of Chinese property giant Evergrande but none of this could derail investor exuberance. Stock markets and house prices took off in 2021. In the world of geopolitics, the first big story of the year was Brexit - Britain's withdrawal from the EU. On top of this, the tensions between the United States and China was a big theme and may remain so in 2022. As the year comes to an end, Russia's intentions toward Ukraine are raising concerns worldwide.2021 was a big year for IPO's, 1058 companies went public over the course of the year. As crypto went mainstream, we saw every social media influencer launch their own coin or NFT project.  So, let's look back at some of the biggest stories of the year.Patrick's Books:Statistics For The Trading Floor:  https://amzn.to/3eerLA0Derivatives For The Trading Floor:  https://amzn.to/3cjsyPFCorporate Finance:  https://amzn.to/3fn3rvC Patreon Page: https://www.patreon.com/PatrickBoyleOnFinanceVisit our website: www.onfinance.orgFollow Patrick on Twitter Here: https://twitter.com/PatrickEBoyleYouTube Channel Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/PatrickBoyleOnFinance)

Royaume-Uni-France: le foie gras de la discorde

La France et le Royaume-Uni ont un nouveau sujet de tension, qui tombait à point pour le repas de Noël : le foie gras. Ou plutôt, le « faux gras », son équivalent végétalien. En effet, le gouvernement de Londres fait appel aux chefs pour tenter de trouver une alternative éthique au foie gras, dont la commercialisation est en passe d'être bannie du territoire britannique.  De notre correspondante à Londres, L'ambiance est festive à Borough Market. Chez ce boucher, les conversations tournent autour du menu de Noël. Peu de chances que l'absence de foie gras soit remarquée, car cette tradition très française ne semble pas manquer à une nation éduquée aux alternatives. Quitte à résoudre d'apparentes contradictions.  « Je suis boucher mais je soutiens vraiment le mouvement végan, vraiment. Oui, je soutiens les deux causes. Je crois qu'il faut s'approvisionner localement, avec des produits de bonne qualité, une bonne race de viande, et d'un autre côté, je mange de la viande un jour sur deux. Ce n'est pas un régime végétalien mais certainement végétarien. » Au-delà de la question alimentaire, la production de foie gras a été interdite au Royaume-Uni en 2006, suite à la loi sur le bien-être animal. Pourtant, ces quinze dernières années, son importation a continué, aux alentours de 200 tonnes par an. Avec la prochaine interdiction, le gouvernement veut symboliser son émancipation des règles de l'Union. Mais il y a un manque à gagner pour la gastronomie. Il a donc fait appel à la créativité des chefs pour trouver des alternatives végétariennes. Comme le « faux gras » du chef Alexis Gautier, servi dans son restaurant gastronomique entièrement végétarien.   « Moi personnellement, je suis un anti-foie gras, explique-t-il, et avec des associations contre la torture animale, on a demandé au gouvernement britannique de non seulement ne pas autoriser le gavage de canards et d'oies en Grande-Bretagne, mais surtout d'arrêter d'importer de la torture inutile. Et ils nous ont dit, oui, on va le faire, puisque maintenant on est en dehors de l'Union européenne, on peut le faire. On veut convaincre les gens d'arrêter de manger du foie gras, et de naturellement passer à du faux gras, ou personne n'a été abusé, personne n'a été torturé, personne n'a été tué mais c'est toujours aussi délicieux. C'était vraiment la clé, il fallait que ce soit délicieux. » Le véganisme, un mode de vie ? Faire du Brexit l'occasion d'importer de manière plus éthique et équitable semble très bien intentionné. Mais pour Surge, une association de défense des animaux, il est hypocrite d'utiliser le bien-être animal comme motif légal, si le gouvernement continue d'autoriser les poulets en batterie, ou aux hormones.  Et ce client, qui vient d'acheter de la viande, s'interroge : « Il n'y a aucune logique à notre attitude envers les animaux. Par exemple, j'ai un chat. Je ne vais pas manger mon chat. Où est-ce que se situe la limite entre un chat et un veau ? Je veux dire si on commence à imposer des valeurs véganes au fonctionnement du monde, vous allez vous retrouver au milieu de gens très hostiles. Mais je pense que cette prise de conscience autour du véganisme me semble aller, doucement, dans la bonne direction. Et je vous dis ça en tant que passionné de cuisine ! » Le foie gras de la discorde n'est peut-être qu'un pied de nez symbolique aux importations françaises, qui, sans le Royaume-Uni, continuera d'en exporter 5 000 tonnes chaque année.  ► À lire aussi : Le véganisme fait de nouveaux adeptes: les animaux de compagnie

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Montag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.Somalias Regierungschef entlassen In Somalia hat Staatschef Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed Ministerpräsident Mohamed Hussein Roble entlassen. Roble sei mit Korruption in Verbindung gebracht worden, erklärte das Präsidialamt in der Hauptstadt Mogadischu zur Begründung. Die Beziehungen zwischen Präsident und Regierungschef sind schon längere Zeit frostig. Zuletzt hatten sich Mohamed und Roble über die seit Monaten verzögerten Wahlen in dem Land am Horn von Afrika gestritten. Nach Einschätzung von Beobachtern lähmt der Streit um die Wahlen vor allem den Kampf der somalischen Führung gegen die islamistische Terrormiliz Al-Shabaab. UN fordern Massaker-Aufklärung Nach dem Fund von mehr als 30 verkohlten Leichen im Osten Myanmars haben die Vereinten Nationen Ermittlungen zu dem Vorfall verlangt. Er sei "entsetzt" über den mutmaßlichen Angriff auf Zivilisten im Bundesstaat Kayah, sagte UN-Vizegeneralsekretär Martin Griffiths. Die Beobachtungsstelle "Myanmar Witness" beschuldigte die Armee, die Opfer getötet und verbrannt zu haben - darunter auch Kinder. Nach einer kurzen Phase der Demokratisierung in Myanmar hatte sich das Militär im Februar wieder an die Macht geputscht. Landesweite Proteste wurden seitdem blutig niedergeschlagen. Status von EU-Bürgern ungeklärt Rund ein Jahr nach dem Brexit warten noch immer Zehntausende in Großbritannien lebende EU-Bürger auf eine Aufenthaltsgenehmigung im Vereinigten Königreich. Einer Analyse der Bürgerrechtsorganisation The-3-Million zufolge gibt es einen Rückstau von mehreren Hunderttausend bislang nicht bearbeiteten Anträgen auf das sogenannte Settlement-Programm. Dieses sichert EU-Bürgern, die bereits vor dem 31. Dezember 2020 im Land gelebt haben, das Recht auf Wohnen, Arbeiten und gesundheitliche Versorgung zu. Insgesamt haben sich mehr als 6,3 Millionen Menschen in Großbritannien um diesen Status beworben. Maßnahmen zum Schutz vor Omikron In zahlreichen deutschen Bundesländern gelten jetzt verschärfte Corona-Regeln. Angesichts der aufkommenden Omikron-Variante werden Kontakte weiter eingeschränkt. Niedersachsen, Baden-Württemberg und Brandenburg setzen damit die vereinbarten Beschlüsse um. Andere Bundesländer haben bereits verschärft oder wollen ab Dienstag nachziehen. Dann dürfen in Deutschland höchstens zehn Erwachsene zu privaten Treffen zusammenkommen - das gilt auch für Geimpfte und Genesene. Hinzu kommen regionale Verordnungen, unter anderem Sperrstunden und Zuschauerverbote bei Veranstaltungen. Kliniken suchen händeringend Pfleger Die Deutsche Krankenhausgesellschaft schlägt angesichts des Personalmangels in den Kliniken Alarm. Vier von fünf Kliniken haben Probleme, offene Pflegestellen auf ihren Allgemein- und Intensivstationen zu besetzen, wie eine Umfrage ergab. Deutschlandweit sind demnach mehr als 22.000 Stellen vakant - dreimal mehr als noch vor fünf Jahren. Auch wirtschaftlich geht es den Krankenhäusern nicht gut. 60 Prozent der Kliniken rechnen für das zu Ende gehende Jahr mit Verlusten. Grund dafür sei, dass wegen der Corona-Pandemie Betten freigehalten und planbare Operationen verschoben wurden. Optimismus bei Unternehmen In der deutschen Wirtschaft dominiert einer Umfrage zufolge zum Jahreswechsel die Zuversicht - trotz Lieferengpässen und Unsicherheiten wegen der Corona-Pandemie. Die meisten der 48 Wirtschaftsverbände, die das arbeitgebernahe Institut der deutschen Wirtschaft, kurz IW, befragt hat, äußerten sich optimistisch. Sie rechnen für ihre Branchen für das kommende Jahr durchweg mit besseren Geschäften. Auch die Job-Aussichten sind überwiegend positiv. Für Unsicherheit sorgt die Omikron-Variante des Coronavirus, deren Auswirkungen auf die Konjunktur sich bislang nur schwer abschätzen lassen. Weltweite Trauer um Tutu Nach dem Tod des südafrikanischen Friedensnobelpreisträgers Desmond Tutu haben Staats- und Regierungschefs dessen Einsatz gegen die Apartheid und für die Menschenrechte gewürdigt. UN-Generalsekretär António Guterres bezeichnete Tutu als "Inspiration für Generationen". US-Präsident Joe Biden betonte, das Vermächtnis des emeritierten Erzbischofs werde über Jahrhunderte nachhallen. Bundespräsident Frank-Walter Steinmeier sagte, Tutus Engagement sollte allen ein Vorbild sein. Der Geistliche war am Sonntag im Alter von 90 Jahren verstorben. Seine Beisetzung ist für kommenden Samstag geplant.
