The KEEPING IT 1000, LEGENDS SERIES takes a historical look at the Denver Nuggets through the eyes of the star players who played for the team. In this episode, Fat Lever joins coach George Karl and Adam Mares to discuss the legendary 1985 playoff run and the team that defined the 80s in Denver.
“I tell my students, ‘If somebody utters the sentence that starts with the words, “History teaches us” the rest of the sentence is probably wrong.' History has no direct lessons for almost anything. Our own age is sufficiently different, sufficiently unique, from what happened in the past that any facile lessons from history are more likely to mislead than to enlighten.” That series of caveats comes from Joel Mokyr, who, perhaps counter-intuitively, is an economic historian. And in fact, the Robert H. Strotz Professor of Arts and Sciences and professor of economics and history at the Chicago-area Northwestern University shows in this Social Science Bites podcast that there's quite a bit to learn from history if you keep your expectations in check. For example, he explains that “the good old days weren't all that good and that the very best time to be born in human history is today. That sounds hard to believe in an age where we're all running around with face masks and facing quarantine, but it's still true.” For his own part, Mokyr tells interviewer Dave Edmonds, “I use economics to understand history, and I use history to understand economics.” Mokyr's ties to economic history are deep: he was president of the Economic History Association in 2003-04, spent four years in 1990s as senior editor of the Journal of Economic History, was editor-in-chief of the Oxford Encyclopedia of Economic History, and is currently editor-in-chief of the Princeton University Press Economic History of the Western World series of monographs. From that perch, he explains, presumably with a smile, that his peers work with ‘expired data.' Economic historians “scour the past looking for large data sets that we can use in some way to make inferences. The issue of causality becomes somewhat of an obsession in economics these days, and economic history is very much a part of this.” In this interview, Mokyr details how the improvement in the human condition he cited above is connected to the Industrial Revolution. “The Industrial Revolution is particularly important because that's where it all started -- before 1750 almost nowhere in the world were living standards approaching anything but miserable and poor.” Economic activity before the year 1750 was mostly the story of trade, he explains, while after 1750, it became the story of knowledge. “The Industrial Revolution was the slow replacement of trade and finance and commerce by another thing, and that is growing knowledge of natural phenomena and rules that can be harnessed to material welfare of people.” To demonstrate this approach, he offered the example of steel. While it has been made for centuries it wasn't until 1780 that anyone knew roughly why this alloy of iron and carbon resulted in such a useful metal, and therefore could exploit its properties more by design than by chance. “If you don't know why something works,” Mokyr said, “it's very difficult to improve it, to tweak it.” Mokyr's scholarship has earned him a variety of honors, including the biennial Heineken Prize by the Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences for a lifetime achievement in historical science in 2006. He has also written a number of prize-winning books, including The Lever of Riches: Technological Creativity and Economic Progress, The Gifts of Athena: Historical Origins of the Knowledge Economy, and most recently, A Culture of Growth.

Signe Nordstrand er introvert, klummeskribent, forfatter og korrekturlæser. Jeg inviterede hende med i podcasten, da hun havde skrevet en klumme om, hvor svært det kan være at være til forældrearrangementer i datterens klasse som introvert. Men samtalen tager en drejning. Det viser sig nemlig, at vi har nogle fælles oplevelser fra vores teenageår. En følelse af at stå i skyggen af ekstroverte veninder, at blive ramt på selvværdet og at føle sig forkert, når man ikke har lyst til at tage med til fest.Og så taler vi om noget andet meget centralt. En tanke, der lyder: "Kommer jeg til at fortryde alle de aftener, jeg har brugt i mit eget selskab, som kunne have været brugt sammen med andre mennesker?" Lever jeg et tilstrækkeligt mindeværdigt liv?

Intuitionen er lyset for de tre poeter og musikere i Uden Ord. Deres musik er en direkte forlængelse, af de følelser de gennemlever. Små og store sætninger om håb og tvivl, sorg og kærlighed. Lyden af rastløs tumlen gennem varme sommerdage og tunge grublende nætter. Uanset om de optager deres musik i en lysning i skoven eller bliver ramt af en følelse i studiet, er sangene det rum de sammen - risikovillige og sårbare - træder ind i og skaber fra. For Thomas, William og Gustav handler det om muligheden for at kunne kaste sig ud på usikker grund. Derud hvor ting opstår i et 'nu' uden menneskelivets mange filtre. Uden ord.
Writing a book can feel daunting and unattainable. My next guest conquered her limiting beliefs to begin writing, and the flow-on effects into her business and growth were phenomenal. She now advocates for her clients to overcome the mindset where procrastination and perfectionism hold them back from accomplishing their goals. In this episode, I'm chatting with the remarkable Juliet Lever. Juliet is the best selling author of the book ‘Relaunch My Life'. She's also the host of the amazing podcast ‘Relaunch My Life Radio' and is a keynote speaker and personal development trainer of NLP, mindset and hypnotherapy. She's sharing with us how writing a book has helped her skyrocket the growth of her business. Juliet openly shares where her journey began eight years ago feeling stuck in social expectations and feeling miserable. Over a 12 month period, she relaunched her life through intense self-exploration, extensive research, leaving her marriage, quitting her corporate job and launching her coaching business. This episode is jam-packed full of inspiration and advice that you can take away into your business today. I'm so grateful to have Juliet on the show today to share with you all of her experiences and wisdom. Enjoy!

Godt 22 år efter premieren har det vist sig, at The Matrix-skaberne måske fik mere ret, end de havde dengang i 1999, da filmen udkom. Vi lever nemlig i en simulation. Godt nok ikke helt som den i Matrix, men nogle af principperne er de samme. Filmen flyder over med religiøse symboler og er blevet en af de stærkeste kulturelle referencer - fra transkønnede til antifeminister. I anledning af premieren på den fjerde Matrix-film dissekerer vi lagene i universet, der rummer mere end bare slowmotion, trenchcoats og solbriller. Inden den historie handler det om racisme i den klassiske ballet Nøddeknækkeren. Her er danserne blandt andet iført gul makeup for at ligne kinesere. Men det er racistisk - 'Yellow-facing', som det hedder - og derfor forsøger balletkompanier verden over at ændre opsætningen for at undgå racistiske stereotyper. Det er en fin balancegang mellem tidssvarende justeringer og kunstnerisk selvcensur, mener teater- og balletanmelder Anne Middelboe Christensen. Sidst i udsendelsen får du en kulturanbefaling fra Kræs' kulturagent i Midtjylland, der har testet kulturoplevelser med en 2-årig. Vært: Maja Hald.

Siden Vild $mith i 2013 bragede igennem til de danske klubber og radiostationer, er deres musik blevet synonymet med fest, alkohol og vilde nætter. Trioen blev kastet ind på scenen med en mission tatoveret tværs over ansigtet: "Lever det liv", og i den klassiske hiphop-anekdotes ånd blev de tre gutter fra Horsens til det, de lavede musik om. Deres nyeste album, The Hunt, handler ifølge dem selv stadig om fornuftens sammenbrud og jagten på den ypperste eufori men åbner også op for, hvad der sker, når man er blevet slave af sine egne tilbøjeligheder og skal forsøge at genopfinde sig selv som musiker og menneske ti år efter.

Organisations worldwide are developing and embedding environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategies to build sustainable businesses. Both global and Indian business operations have been undergoing significant changes amidst externalities such as climate change, finite resource availability, deteriorating ecosystems and evolving stakeholder expectations. The COVID-19 pandemic and associated business disruptions have only heightened and reinforced the need for action, making ESG a critical agenda for companies as they are focusing on long-term sustainable growth. To shed further light on the ESG agenda for companies, PwC, in partnership with Moneycontrol, has launched ‘ESG: A bridge to action', a brand new platform where industry leaders, in conversation with PwC Partners, discuss the multiple aspects of ESG, explore their companies' journey and experience with ESG, and offer advice on the road ahead for the Indian corporate sector.

What makes the real estate industry attractive is how you can attain a huge cash flow passively. However, is that the truth or is there something more?

Right? I think we all obviously do. And there's so many things you'll learn. ” - Axel Ragnarsson“Real estate's a game where we all get into it for cash flow and passive income. And I think that's what entices a lot of people to or brings a lot of people to real estate, but you really make money by growing the equity and growing the value of a property or, you know, buying something below market taking your cash out buying something else.” - Axel Ragnarsson“I think that we're at this point in the business where good deals, they're not just growing on trees, right? It's not like it's easy to go out there and, and get a good deal. So you really got to maximize what you have, like in front of you.” - Axel Ragnarsson Learn more about Myers Methods of Multifamily Investing: http://bit.ly/37u6oK3Register for Myers Methods Multifamily Investing Course: https://bit.ly/37iozkBLearn more about the Mid-Atlantic Multifamily Conference: https://bit.ly/2V7SlCCSupport the show (https://www.facebook.com/groups/157335752156211/)

Rob and Josh are each co-founders of BanyanGlobal Family Business Advisors which advises family owners on business, finance, ownership, philanthropy, and a wide range of other issues. They are each leaders in the field of family-owned business. They recently co-authored the Harvard Business School publication: “Family Business Handbook: How to Build and Sustain a Successful, Enduring Enterprise.” Thanks for listening! We love our listeners! Drop us a line or give us guest suggestions here. Links Why the 21st Century Will Belong To Family Businesses Build a Family Business that Lasts Order the HBR Family Business Handbook Quotes Family Business Myths/Facts Myth: Family businesses don't really matter. Fact: “About 90% of all businesses in the United States are family owned and they account for about 50% of all employment.” Myth: Family businesses don't last, after three generations, they're doomed to fail. Fact: “Family businesses last longer on average than other forms of ownership. Some of the longest lasting and most successful businesses in the world are family businesses. Why don't Americans know that?” Joe: Josh, why do you think that the myth that family businesses are less successful, that they never get beyond the third generation, why does that persist? Josh: It's a great scare tactic, I think you keep hearing it is because people want to tell you, "You're doomed to fail and therefore you need my help to be able to overcome it." Myth: Family businesses are rife with conflicts - family members are fighting and suing each other and just can't possibly get along Fact: “Most family businesses struggle not from having too much conflict, but from too little conflict, because it's really hard to raise some of these issues about fairness and compensation and all the things that come in as being part of a family business.” Rob: It's strange, but the celebrity or the business celebrities, when I went to business school, Jack Welch, and he was making a brand for himself. Now, it's Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg at Facebook or Elon Musk at Tesla. They seek the publicity. I would say most all of the family business that we know the owners, they shy away from publicity. They don't want to be the face of their family business. They actually know the downside that can come with that. Josh: Most family businesses are private companies and the word "private" is there for a reason, that they don't want to be public. They see advantages in being below the radar. I was visiting a family business recently in a state out west and I drive up to the headquarters and I was like, "That can't be it. We must have the address wrong. That can't possibly be the headquarters of a billion dollar company." And of course, it was. “One of the amazing things about family businesses is that they can break the rules in a way and practice business in a way that is fundamentally different than other companies.” “Family business owners can, if they choose, own it for their whole lifetime and maybe set it up for their next generation. It's the difference between maybe renting an apartment or even being in an Airbnb overnight - you're day trading versus owning a home that you're hoping to bequeath to your children.” Unlike other companies, family businesses actually talk about longevity. How often do you hear companies outside of the world of family businesses talking about how many generations do you last? Do we put like a second or third generation as if that's just a low number, but then you have to multiply it by 20 or 30 years and you realize that a third-generation family business has probably been around for a hundred years. Josh: People say: "Oh, most family businesses don't make it for a hundred years and therefore they're doomed to fail." I'm like, "No, no, most businesses last for under a year, maybe five years." Joe: Their success is actually used as a way of talking about their failure when it's not really a failure at all. What we find in family businesses is that core decisions are really made at the owner level in family businesses, not like publicly-traded companies. If you don't like what's going on at GM, you sell GM and you're out and it wasn't really hard to sell. With a family business you're in. So, you're going to work really hard to make the owner decisions the right decisions. The rights that come with that ownership are profound, the ability to influence the company in ways that are positive and negative are fundamental and learning how to effectively step into that role as owners is essence of the work that we do and the essence of the book that we set out to write. If you're working in a family business or if you're on the board of a family business and you don't understand the owner strategy, like what trade-offs they're making, you're going to be very surprised by the decisions that are coming your way. Leadership Transition If you've been in this position of leading a family business for decades, maybe your entire adult life, you're not just going to quit that and play golf. In most cases, you need some place to land, some place to go to…. to give that up, it's super scary. It's psychologically very challenging for some people. Joe: One of the things we talked about earlier … for the person that's been running the family business it is not just a job. It is his or her identity because they're really living their job. I think that provides a perspective of why it's so hard to let go. Rob: That's a great point. It is their narrative and maybe it's been their narrative since they were five years old, is that they wanted to be the controlling owner or CEO of their family business, and their narrative probably never got to that final few chapters about how they're going to relinquish control over time. Some do it, and some do it with such aplomb, it's really quite amazing. We're trying to learn from those people about what it is that gets them to the other side of that transition. Getting to the next generation, the hardest thing often is the current generation! It's like letting go of the reins and really talking. We have some clients who it's fairly easy for, but they're the exception. “One of the hardest things to get right in a family business is family employment. One of the things that causes the most conflict in a family businesses is who gets a job, who gets paid how much, who gets promoted, who gets the CEO spot. And it's really hard to navigate those issues.” “Once your (family) business gets to a certain size, the value you get from the right independent directors is almost always going to be worth the time and investment that you make into them.” Big Ideas/Thoughts The kinds of things that family businesses are able to do in terms of investing in their employees, investing in their communities that they believe and see paying off in their company, they would never be able to do them if they had to focus on quarterly earnings. It's so interesting, when CFOs come into family businesses from public companies or from private equity, they have to be retrained, just retrained about what the priorities of the family owners are. Managing Expectations Another one of the things that people say about family businesses is that families grow faster than businesses, so therefore a family business is doomed to fail because at some point the size of the family will outstrip the ability of the business to support it. That's where expectations come into play because that's a choice. Should family members actually expect to live off the business or do you expect them to find other ways and treat the dividends they get as a nice bonus to buy something, to buy a new car, or maybe if it's a great year, to get a new house, but not to treat it as sort of like the foundation of the family living on. The Wall Street Journal is a great example of expectation driving decisions. The family (that owned the WSJ) lived off of a very profitable business, a growing family over time. And then as the digital age came in and disrupted newspapers, it was no longer as profitable anymore. And so the family was in a position where they either had to drastically cut their lifestyle or drastically cut the reinvestment in the business, putting them almost in a no-win position that Rupert Murdoch took advantage of and made an offer that they really felt like they didn't have a choice, but to accept. Dividend policy and debt are two of the things that families have to grapple with, and that often leads to their demise. Regarding debt: You go to business school, and they'd say, "Oh, look at all of the great benefits of leverage. You can get a much higher return on equity. Interest payments are tax deductible." So, you come out of business school saying, "Lever up, baby." and there are also these LBOs going on. You go into the world of family business, and it's so, so different. Many of our large clients effectively have zero debt. And in fact, we had one client, it was in the agricultural business, and they had zero debt and they had two full years of operating expenses on their balance sheet. And we're like, "This is not what we learned at business school." Family Business Goals From an ownership perspective, there are three main things you might want. You could want to grow the value of the business - let's go from a million to ten million to a billion and so on. You might want to do that just because you want to be richer, or maybe you want to influence the world and you see your business as a platform to do that. The second thing you might want as an owner is liquidity, and here we mean taking money out of the business. So, you might want to do that because you want to lead a nice lifestyle, or you want to give it away to charity. Or you want to have something that is yours and not belonging to your entire family. And the third thing you might want is control, and control is sort of like you have it until you give it up. So, if you take on an equity partner, you are giving up some level of control. If you take on outside debt, you're giving up control because now someone else is in the room with you and has some influence over your decisions. The most common path to building a successful family business is the mixture of growth and control. If you look at the largest family businesses in the world, most of them have been built in exactly the same way, which is that they make a dollar, and they reinvest 99 cents. They give themselves enough money to pay the bills and they put 99 cents right back into the business. They do that over and over and over again until they've built something very significant. The growth and control is at the expense of liquidity. Owners Room/Importance of Owner Decisions In family businesses on top of the boardroom sits the “owner room” and here there are very few decisions, but this is about the longevity of the firm. What's being traded in this room isn't the competency that's traded in a management room or the wisdom in a boardroom. It's actually power and influence. It's the power that if 51% of the voting shareholders do it this way, that's where it's going to go. But it's also the influence that if you stick it to your sister and she goes to her dad, oh, it may come back to haunt you somewhere else. So what part of what we say is the owner room needs to have both the vote, the 51% we talked about, but really important to have the voice. Sometimes it's okay to be out voted if you had a voice in the matter and people have taken seriously what you have to say.

There's been tremendous political wrangling in the US recently about raising the debt ceiling (how much money we allow ourselves to borrow). The U.S. is not the first country in history borrow money and we won't be the last. In the late imperial period until the early 1920s, Russia needed cash, and they got it from Britain and France. Owing so much money gave Russia a kind of power; if Russia defaulted, it would have been catastrophic for the countries that lent them money. Guest: Duke professor Jennifer Siegel. Her book is For Peace and Money: French and British Finance in the Service of Tsars and Commissars.
