BYD already reached 55 euros per kWh at the battery pack level with the module-less approach. - The upcoming end of patent restrictions on LFP and the recent problems with fires in NCM battery cells seem to have pushed LG Energy Solution to consider the super-safe and inexpensive LFP chemistry. - Patent restrictions over LFP cathode chemistry will start to expire in 2022.

Positano has fared much better, with a meager 130 infections and no deaths. 1:48 – Improving Tourism PictureVenice hotels have recently reported 70% occupancy and anticipated bookings for Summer 2021. In Positano, hotel owners have indicated current occupancy in the 50-80% range, with more guests arriving on the weekends. Meanwhile, the Uffizi Gallery in Florence reported a 40% increase in visits from the first to the fourth week of May. Italy expected 39 million tourists to visit in June through August, which would be a 12% YoY increase.2:42 – US to Italy: Airport ExperienceAt Newark Liberty Airport, the check-in process caused confusion among passengers, as limited airline personnel were present to address COVID testing & vaccination concerns. On the other hand, the arrival experience at Rome's Fiumicino Airport was surprisingly easy, as the authorities eliminated a mandatory antigen test for incoming passengers the day prior to Kyle's arrival.3:44 – Mask Wearing ProtocolsMasks have been required both inside and outside since October 2020, but this regulation was largely ignored in all but a few places in Positano.4:07 – Tourist CompositionMost of the non-Italian visitors in Positano during Kyle's stay were French and German, with a handful of Americans also observed. In contrast to a normal year when 80% of business comes from Americans, restaurants are mostly catering to Italian guests from elsewhere in the country.5:07 - Removal of Mask MandateOn June 28th, the outdoor mask mandate was removed across Italy, but the Campania government indicated it would remain in place for another two weeks because of India Variant concerns.5:28 – GUEST INSIGHTS: Enza and Albero Barba5:50 – Challenging Approvals for RedevelopmentThe process of moving forward with any sort of property redevelopment is never straightforward, as the local government / zoning rules are ambiguous.

The way I've discovered success later in life is like the old Bob Dylan quote, “If a man wakes up in the morning and goes to bed at night, and in between does what he likes, then he is a success”. I think, that is the best definition because it's really a story you can write yourself. We always think that when I get to this stage in my business I'll sell it, I'll be happy, but you won't. That won't make you happy in all this sort of state of yours, hold your happiness hostage to something in the future, I'll just do this deal, or do another year, or sell this business, and then I'll be happy.

Body language and non-verbal gestures are the first things we notice when we meet someone in person, but what about in the virtual world? Is it the same? According to the European Commission, in 2019, only 5.4% of employees in the EU worked from home. However, in March 2020, this number had drastically increased, with most non-essential workers forced to work from home as the EU was in lockdown. This meant a new world of virtual meetings and conducting business remotely. However, aside from the technology issues, many people did not know how to conduct themselves in the virtual business world. And today, we are returning to in-person meetings after 18 months of being behind the camera, so how are we adapting?

She is an EMCC-accredited coach and works primarily with international and financial organizations. Throughout her career, she also served as a Senior Consultant for Ramboll Management and a Programme Manager for the European Commission. In this episode… It can be all too easy for leaders to get tunnel vision with their companies. With constant pressure and growing demands, the focus becomes fixed on the numbers while leaving room for little else. A lot can get lost in this in-between, from mental health to employee satisfaction to the long-term performance of the business. It's not a sustainable model, and it often leads to stagnation in many organizations. According to Sylvia Rohde-Liebenau, a successful coach and leadership expert, improving as a leader comes from self-awareness, stillness, and a priority for stress management. Sylvia has worked for the European Investment Bank and the European Commission, accumulating over 25 years of leadership development experience. She has witnessed the lasting effects of burnout, stress, and ineffective communication — so she decided to do something about it.

Summary: Today, Martin and I talk government and crypto—in the face of the national debt, the US is depending on the cheapening of dollars to pay back debt that has grown exponentially in the last decade. Additionally, we face other probing questions in looking at Europe's 2030 agenda. Ending democracy and implementing shared power between nations would have many interesting implications, and we dive into some of these. We discuss IMF and the push to create a universal digital currency, which would be above all laws and change cryptocurrency as we know it. Tune in to listen as we implore possibilities in crypto for the coming years, and the interplay between debt, governing strategy, and digital currency. Highlights: -DOW - a bull market everyone loves to hate, and Marty called it -Over the years, Martin has dealt with a lot of government in the analytical field -We can't continue to borrow year after year without the intention of paying back -National debt has more than doubled within a decade; government has the intention of paying back with cheaper dollars -This is now coming to a head -The problem is not the US, but Europe -Europe went to negative interest rates in 2014 - 7 years later they are still unable to stimulate the economy -Pension funds are insolvent -Martin's solution: stop this and re-design it, but for freedom -8 points for 2030 agenda - ending democracy, US no longer a superpower, shared power between nations - one world government idea -Heat map is dark red for Europe -Many people untrained in the field are now suddenly climate activists and experts. Those who aren't necessary qualified are making these big decisions -Handing the power of the US to the UN is off the wall -Schwabb says democracy has to go - keep in mind checks and balances on human rights -European Commission that makes laws does not stand for election—neither does the head of the EU
-When we see Biden and $6 million proposals, it's because we are looking to modern monetary theory—borrowing is not feasible anymore -Government spending increasing by buying all the government bonds in Europe -"we can just print more money and it won't cause inflation” -Assets, real-estate, art, etc. retains value and are going up drastically -DOW going up dramatically and people still analyzing it with old-school methods -Where is crypto headed? -You have to be careful…there is a group above the UN (FAFT) that is concerned with money laundering and wants it to drop *know your client -Ending the idea that somehow cryptocurrency is out of the government -Pushing hard to create an IMF digital currency - all cryptocurrencies would be devolved into this new IMF coin. Why? This would replace the dollar as reserve currency -Martin: opposed to IMF because it is not an elected body, and is outside the jurisdiction of countries—they are above all law internationally. Period. -What's going on with the gold flash crash? They lost their targeted gold -They are tracking every ounce of gold—where it comes from/goes. They realize gold is an escape valve and have been trying to restrain it as much as possible -This isn't to take away inflation; this is about money and control. They don't want any competition—it's about power -Half the world is acquiring gold at the same time, which might be problematic -Communism failed because it didn't have the entire world -The reset scam will fail—the only way they could pull it off is if they could get Russia and China involved -Three Gorges Dam and Chinese flooding—if the dam goes, much of the Chinese economy goes with it -The climate change argument is serious because the UN is using this to promote the one government idea - climate change must be fought by a unified government -We still have regional/cultural differences -History repeats itself -Miami becoming financial capital of US—what is going to happen to New York? -People can't be evicted; land lord can't collect rent -Will all private housing become government housing? This would essentially make New York a ghetto -This system doesn't function this way—it only would be able to do so by the communist regime Useful Links: Armstrong Economics

The European Union has led the charge on regulating Big Tech companies for years now. Europe's General Data Protection Regulation was the first major rule on the transfer and tracking of personal data. The EU has also given the rest of the world a new way to think about tackling the American giants: Google, Facebook, Apple and Amazon. Last year, the EU produced two proposals for regulation that labeled the biggest tech companies “gatekeepers” meaning they control or restrict access to other companies, apps or services. Host Molly Wood speaks with Margrethe Vestager, the executive vice president of the European Commission who oversaw the proposals.
