Lawless Leaders vs. Moral Mentors How Important Is Character to Being a Top Dog? With Rabbi Ari Sollish (Recorded live at the Intown Jewish Academy on October 13, 2021) When a leader's star begins to rise, people tend to scrutinize their character. But how important are their personal morals anyway? After all, the main thing is getting the job done, right? The lengthy narrative of Abraham's life story clues us in.

Moral hazard and the Evergrande collapse

Welcome to Finance and Fury. In this episode we will be looking at the Property market in China and focus on the Evergrande developments – in particular if there is actually a timebomb starting to surface – and look at the potential contagion risks to the rest of the world – such as the Aus and US Many in the press are comparing what is happening to Evergrande as another Lehman's moment – which was one of the defining collapses of a financial institution that lead to the flow of effects culminating in the GFC – it is understandable that the media takes this route – Lehman's is a recognisable name and fear and doom scenarios generates more clicks and sells more adds – but is this worst-case scenario true? Is the collapse of Evergrande really going to lead to another global financial crisis? A few weeks ago – we covered where the next financial collapse is likely to come from – between the USA and China - Two factors were the focus – leverage and contagion risks Looking at leverage - Credit growth is a major risk to almost every market – both from bonds from investors and lending from bank of financial institution borrowing – both of these are relevant to the private sector in China Credit growth is even a concern in Australia – APRA worried about banks and lending – they have increased their servicing cost by 0.5% - worried about credit growth vastly outpacing income growth But the major focus for any systemic issue is the contagion risks – if one company defaults, does this create a GFC, or just a collapse of an isolated entity – The loss potentials are substantially different between both scenarios – one is investors in a company losing money versus every investor globally losing funds due to collapsing markets world wide – the degree they collapse also is different If Evergrande fails – what does this matter? At this stage - The irony of the contagion risks is from the increased news coverage that this topic is being granted – if a topic is covered in the news everywhere – this creates uncertainty and fear – investors can panic – this creates real market declines, so the risk of market declines become a self-fulfilling prophecy – even me covering this topic can create some level of risk aversion, which may cause people to sell off investments – but is there more than just the normal fears in the markets from media coverage occurring? To start with - What is happening in China – We need to look at their property market, or more specifically the debt that property developers hold – especially in relation to Evergrande and Chinese economy at large Chinese economy - the rise and fall of Evergrande is tied into the economy of China quite heavily – Evergrande is China's second largest property developer – but this ranks around 147th in the world – but it is the most indebted property developer in the world – which should start to ring some alarm bells – it's on balance sheet liabilities amount to around 2% of Chinas GDP – off balance sheet – this could be higher – and likely is A company in isolation with debt isn't much of an issue – but a company with too much debt can be a problem – In isolation this isn't too much of an issue – if the company defaults but business in other sectors of the economy continues as normal then markets may go down a bit but then continue as normal – but what if this one company is a sign of greater systemic issues - where most of the companies in your country in this sector have the same problems – that of having too much debt that they are likely to default on? Especially in the property sector – The BIS released a paper showing that Chinese non-financial companies have 160% Debt to GDP, versus in the US where it is about 80% - so double in China compared to the US – Property also has an overweight on GDP compared to the US It is estimated that property development makes up around 25% of China's GDP – this growth has been fuelled by Debt – this is a major issue for the CCP - China property market – the history over the past 20 years The increase in demand for property and the increase in pricing has been fuelled by massive amounts of urbanisation – rural workers/population moving to cities for work and a better income for their families High demand for properties in desirable cites has massively inflated the property values in these urban environment – developers often sell every property in a development in advance of the construction even starting This has led to lower quality – contractors skimming on materials to lower costs – where constructions can actually collapse in a few years after completion Prices to income ratios – results in a situation where you have generations of people living in one apartment trying to repay the loans We think that Australia is bad – and it is – but many major cities in China, such as Shenzhen see 43 times the average household income in property prices – compared to Sydney which was around 13 times at the peak of the market Speculation – large increases in property prices saw massive speculation in developers – if you think that the property that you will construct today can lead to a 50% gain in the next year or two – then you will likely borrow large chunks of money to bank on this trend Lead to many apartments not being rented, and purchasers buying up more than one property – but the limit per family is capped The population is also limited in what they can invest in – so property is where most of the upper middle class and beyond put their life savings Large property developers are politically connected – But this has created moral hazard – every loan given, or bond investments have been made based around how likely it is for the government to bail out these developers Rather than on their ability to meet the debt repayment cashflow Moral hazard is a large component of any investment or economic decision – as an example – say you have an expensive car – now in one situation you have comprehensive insurance and in another you have no cover – in which situation are you likely to drive a little more recklessly, or park this in a car park unattended overnight? Same goes for insurances – especially if you are forced to have insurances – you may as well use it for your premiums – such as health insurances – But what if we are talking about a government backing debt for bail outs – and that is the expectation of the markets – this creates a moral hazard - But China realised they have a debt problem – as well as a moral hazard problem - so policy makers tried to reign this in – focusing on moral hazard first and foremost Policy changes – the CCP put together that their economic growth is mostly paper/debt based – where the growth they are receiving in GDP is funded through borrowing from property expansion – which is not sustainable in real terms They want to transition their economy to more long-term sustainable growth – real estate is the most important sector in their economy at the moment – but this is debt reliant – they prefer real returns – which is why you see a push towards resources and other manufacturing sectors – but a real issue in China is the affordability of property ­ Look at government policy across the world – they always say that they promise to tackle issues of property affordability – but then comes a situation where prices are starting to decline – what do governments do? Create policies to help prop prices up to avoid a decline which could have further reaching issues – governments don't want bubbles, but they don't want a collapse China appears to be the first government in a long time to not follow this pattern – they are trying to change moral hazard – and expectations in the market -which can easily lead to collapses in the property sector Rather than bail out Evergrande – which would be easy for the CCP – it appears that at this stage they have decided to let this company deal with their own problems This is technically how it should be – but it is rare to see this response I think this is mostly due to their Hard lines polices – trying to reduce the economy reliance on debts – They actually introduced three hard line policies on property developers in Aug 2020 These are hard limits on property developers – relating to their liability to asset ratios, net debt to equity ratios, cash to short term debt ratios – all of these are important when it comes to developers who fund their projects using debt now for equity in the future Had an instant effect on property development firms – no longer could you raise capital through debt funding as most developers were above the allowable ratios What made this is worse, is they had to reduce their debt levels – to do so they were quickly forces to sell down assets and taking losses – this caused prices of property to fall, so the valuation on their assets started to go down This made it worse - These losses make their ratios look worse – making these companies need to deleverage further – this can lead into a downwards spiral On top of this – because the prices of property started to slow as well last year – to make more pre-sales – Evergrande needed to offer some discounts on the pre-sales – this lead to less liquidity available – less liquidity meant they don't have the money to fund debt repayments as they come due Evergrande itself – In the property sector – the company acts like a conglomerate Property development, property management, and Wealth management products – They are looking to sell of property management – recoup $5bn But wealth management products – WMPs may be a concern – this is around $6bn – Small number – but investor fury has made this more of a social issue But these investors were told they would get a guaranteed 12% return on their investment p.a. This money was used to help close funding caps that the parent company had in construction – This is fine, as long as the returns on the property sales in the year are more than 12% to repay investors - But for a time they weren't – this meant that new investor flows had to be used to make repayments to existing investors – in the process there was less to help close the funding gap – But then add onto this the slump in sales – then you start to have a real issue – as more and more new investor flows need to be used to repay existing investors – which is the basis of a ponzi scheme – but moral hazard still existed – investors had the certainty in their own minds that this was a sure bet – as any defaults would be covered by the government The issue is based around the moral hazard – investors thought their returns were guaranteed with little risk - but where it can get bad is contagion risks Fallout effects – will come from two areas – property domestically in China – which will spread out and have their own issues – as well as contagion risks throughout the economy and throughout the world Property prices in China – Can see a decline – if they liquidate and need to sell off the property development – could see a fire sale of assets and property prices decline The fact they are trying to sell quick is bad for property – fire sales see massive price reductions Domestic fallout – People who have placed deposits on properties that may never be built – lose those funds People who have invested in the WMPs – will also lose money – you will start to see some social issues This will reduce the trust in property investment – Evergrande employs lots of people – around 4m – which would be huge for a country like Australia – but out of a population over around 1.4bn is about 0.29% of the population Contagion risks – who owns the debt and are there any derivatives on this? Look at the debt - $300bn of debt – bonds issued – estimated that only around $20bn of this is overseas debts – the rest is domestic – these foreign bonds are priced in at around 25-30c on the dollar – depending on their maturity China is a large economy – it can pretty easily soak up these losses – even though $300bn is a large amount of debt to cover This is owned across 128 banks and 121 non-bank institutions Investment managers – investing in risky emerging market debts - Ashmore group, BlackRock Inc, UBS and HSBC hold $450m, $400m, $300m, and $200m, respectively – which isn't too much for these groups to absorb Best case scenario – Evergrande will be allowed to collapse – the parts will be bought up by other developers in the nation at a fire sale rate – i.e. getting a good discount The People Bank of China will also likely buy out some of the debt - Like JP Morgan Buying Bear Stern back in the GFC – with help and oversight from the FED – but this doesn't solve all the problems But the issue comes back to the moral hazard – the CCP wants to minimise speculative risks Evergrande by itself defaulting isn't a risk for markets – but it does spell some risks – of over leverage throughout the system – if many other developers start to see the same systemic issues of overleverage and issues in meeting their debt obligations, then you get into further trouble Fantasia – another property developer failed to make a bond payment - missed $315 million in payments to lenders – created further fears that financial strains in the country's outsized property sector are spreading beyond the troubled Evergrande conglomerate. S&P and Moody's slapped "default" credit ratings on Fantasia Lessons to be learnt – The moral hazard and the belief in a sure thing – the belief before the GFC is that debt on peoples homes was a sure thing – not many people would default all at once, so package up 1000s of mortgage holders debt and make bets on this But due to this belief, lax lending standards were employed – this then turned out that due to the belief that things couldn't go bad, resulted in them going bad due to too much risk How this is different from the GFC – Derivative used in making bets on the property market Credit swaps, derivatives on CDO – this doesn't seem to be occurring in China – and the banks' ability to eat losses on the debt isn't too great to not be able to recover Lehman's collapse was considered to be the plug of the dam being pulled in the GFC – property prices dropped, people defaulted on debt then Lehman went into default – but only due to their exposure to complex CDOs and derivative positions – If these don't exist on Evergrande – which it appears at this stage they don't – then there is less contagion risk – But who knows – there is no way to tell until it is too late – however, there hasn't been much in the way of transaction in credit default swaps in banks like HSBC which have greater exposure to the Chinese debt markets It took Lehman over a year to default and go bankrupt – so time will tell how this pays out Where things could get worse – is if more developers start to default – showing greater systemic risks My gut feel is that the China growth from property is coming to an end – This will likely have larger effects on the commodity markets – such as iron ore – than it will on the global share market in the short term – but if their property market starts to decline due to defaults on developers and a lack of trust – this leaves their economy very susceptible Your guess is as good as mine as how this will turn out – we will keep an eye on this Thank you for listening to today's episode.

Jorge Moral, a veteran firefighter for the past 30 years, used to think he had a drinking problem. It's something many firefighters struggle with — turning to the bottle in response to on-the-job stress and, in more extreme cases, trauma and PTSD. Only for Jorge, he realized it wasn't actually a drinking problem he had. It was a sleeping problem.   “I was using alcohol to try to go to bed, because I went two or three years of just taking naps,” he says. “I would take a nap at night, maybe a couple of hours, and that's it.”    Ultimately, Jorge decided to try CBD to treat his insomnia — and he's never looked back. On this episode of Good Dudes Grow, Gary and Jorge talk about the ways CBD has helped him with his recovery as a first responder, the coping mechanisms it's allowed him to let go of (including Adderall), and why he sees CBD as a piece of the puzzle (but not the entire answer).   What You'll Learn: The role CBD played in his recovery when Jorge (drunkenly, at a wedding) decided to donate his kidney What else he's turned to, besides CBD, to improve his sleep hygiene Why it's important that more first responders have stigma-free access to CBD and THC And much more!   Favorite Quote:   “CBD is not the answer to everything, but it's a tool to get you to the answer.” — Jorge Moral   Connect with Jorge:    Facebook   Instagram   How to Get Involved:   Gary Roberts is the founder and CEO of Pure Body Zen, a company based around creating and selling high-quality CBD products that work to heal mind and body alike.

In one of my favorite stories in the gospels, Jesus disappoints a rich man. The encounter invites us to consider the tension between the rich man, who wants to be moral while also hoarding wealth, and Jesus' insistence that economic justice is a prerequisite to healthy community (the kingdom of God). In the 21st century, we still wrestle with huge and growing economic and social disparities, despite overwhelming evidence that Jesus' vision of economic justice is actually better for everyone. Changing our relationships to wealth, consumption, possessions, and one another to align with equity and justice are vital spiritual and ethical practices needed to heal ourselves, communities, and the earth.

This is Part 2 of 2—don't miss the previous conversation with Charles Taylor on "What's Going Wrong with Our Democracies?"This episode was made possible in part by the generous support of the Tyndale House Foundation. For more information, visit tyndale.foundation.Part 2 of 2: Philosopher Charles Taylor joins Miroslav Volf and Ryan McAnnally-Linz for a two-part conversation about what's gone wrong with our democracies and finding common moral understanding. In this episode, Charles Taylor explains his most recent thinking about the growth of common ethical understanding in a world that often fails to live up to those shared moral principles of respect, dignity, and care. The conversation also covers the promise of hope in its political and theological context; the response we need for the epistemological crisis of post-truth politics; how to restore trust in each other; the relation between individual freedom and public common good; the need to recover solidarity and sacred encounter between humans during our time; and finally the promise of democracy for living up to our moral ideals. Introduction: Ryan McAnnally-LinzWe're living at the end of a strange moral century. 100 years ago, the world was marked by a global pandemic, the end of a long war, fights over gender inequality and racial injustice, and the precipice of a broken economy. And people in 1921 simply had no idea what kind of violence, bloodshed, and upheaval was coming.And yet, even over the course of a century filled with all-too-human evil, we can trace a faint golden thread of moral invention. Commitments to human dignity, universal human rights, suffrage and democracy, solidarity with the marginalized and suffering, equality—the spread of these ideas also mark the last 100 years. The disparity is stark. At another moment of conflict and uncertainty, the fate of that golden thread is unclear.This is part 2 of our conversation with philosopher Charles Taylor. Author of Sources of the Self, The Ethics of Authenticity, A Secular Age, and much more, Taylor exemplifies  determined, imaginative, generous intellectual commitment to a fundamental question: What is humanity for? This is one of the foundational questions of the Yale Center for Faith & Culture and this podcast—seeking and living a life worthy of our humanity. Following Taylor, we want to help people to better understand themselves, their world, and the significance of their lives.Show NotesIntroduction: Ryan McAnnally-LinzA strange moral centuryHopeHow have we got as far as we've got?The progress of ethical understanding through historyDisparity with human propensity for evilNon-violent resistanceHow non-violence shapes Miroslav Volf's approach to democracyMiroslav's first democratic act of protest in Czechoslovakia "Fear not" as a command; hope as an obligationThe hope that permeates Charles Taylor's workHow do you cultivate a sense of hopefulness?The quest for moral certainty and purityListener question from Bonnie Kristian: "How to achieve ethical growth/gain moral knowledge in a time of epistemic crisis?"Listener question from Jennifer Herdt: "You have written in such illuminating ways about the quest for certainty and moral purity, and about how these often end up rationalizing violence in service of the eradication of error and evil. I'm wondering how you would you relate your analysis to our contemporary post-truth historical moment, in which various groups that perceive themselves as under attack seek epistemic closure, sealing themselves off from an enemy regarded as absolutely unworthy of engagement--even at the cost of massive loss of life, as we see in politically-motivated anti-masking and anti-vaccination campaigns.  What sources of hope would you name for restoring basic forms of social trust and commitment to pursuit of a common life?"Tribalism that overtakes the sacred encounter between human beingsHow the COVID pandemic has made things harder for tribalismDemocracy, freedom, choice, and the public goodListener question from David Moe: It might be good to ask him these: "what kind of democracy the religiously pluralistic world needs today?

Alex Epstein is a philosopher who argues that “human flourishing” should be the guiding principle of industrial and environmental progress. He founded Center for Industrial Progress (CIP) in 2011 to offer a positive, pro-human alternative to the Green movement. Alex is also the author of The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels (Penguin, 2014), a New York Times bestseller arguing that if we look at the whole picture, human flourishing requires that humanity use more fossil fuels not less. The book has been widely praised as the most persuasive argument ever made for our continuing use of fossil fuels, winning Epstein the “Most Original Thinker of 2014” award from The McLaughlin Group.    Time stamps: 0:10:59 Podcast begins with Alex Epstein 0:11:39 My take on the climate story 0:15:59 What does it mean to be "good for the climate?" 0:21:49 Ideally, we want to impact climate directly as humans 0:27:44 Go to: https://industrialprogress.com/ if interested in the release of Alex Epstein's book 0:28:29 Many of the climate arguments told to us are taken out of context 0:36:59 Elon Musk says we can make Mars livable, but a 2-degree warming of Earth will make our planet un-livable  0:39:44 Predictions from 50 years ago never came true 0:47:59 The problem with the term "climate change denyer" 0:54:54 The benefits of fossil fuels 1:00:54 The problem with solar and wind power 1:07:54 The clean energy standard goals from the current administration 1:15:29 Final points with Alex Epstein: let's think about a livable planet vs. an un-impacted planet 1:18:59 Where to find more of Alex Epstein   Sponsors: Heart & Soil: www.heartandsoil.co  White Oak Pastures: www.Whiteoakpastures.com, use code: CarnivoreMD for 10% off your first order Belcampo: www.belcampo.com use code: CarnivoreMD for 20% off your order BLUblox: https://blublox.cc/ CARNIVOREMD for 15% off Lets Get Checked: 20% off your order at www.TRYLGC.com/paul

Surrounding yourself with wise mentors and a strong network can be the key to a successful career. But how can you develop these relationships?  Today's host John Regentin, Senior Consultant at FCCS is joined by the 14th President of Gettysburg College, faculty of Women of Distinction at Gettysburg Janet Riggs for a conversation about the power of networks and mentors. Janet is a featured speaker at the FCCS Gettysburg Leadership Experience Women of Distinction program and has joined the podcast today to share her insights into the power of finding your network and mentoring others.   She shares her experiences of being pushed to higher levels with the encouragement of mentors, the support she found within positive and constructive networks, and the advice that she has for others when establishing and developing these valuable relationships in your career. Today's Insights Include:   The role of mentors in your career A mentor can help guide you through transition points in your career. A mentor will invite you to explore career moves you haven't otherwise considered. Mentors invite the inclusion of less experienced team members to the table. Mentor interactions have the potential to impact a career in unexpected, positive ways. Mentors work to build confidence in others.   The value of your building your network Networks function in a different capacity than mentors. Networks provide opportunities to connect with colleagues to gain guidance from shared experiences. Both networks and mentors should aim to push you to try new things.   How to build sustainable relationships These relationships require care and feeding, they will not just happen. Identify ways to nurture relationships and then act on those opportunities. Supporting others in their roles will help build your relationships with them.   Sound advice from networks and mentors If your ego can take rejection, go for the opportunities that are in your path. The most valuable advice is rarely complicated, it's actually quite simple. You will gain more value from your network when you pay it forward to others. Take what you need from your network, but you also have to feed into it. Don't wait too long or the opportunities tend to disappear.   Seeking guidance through challenging decisions Talk to those in similar experiences about their strategies and successes. Moral support is easy to find when you share common challenges. Aim to turn struggles into constructive opportunities when counseling with others.   Keeping your networks strong Intentionally seek out those who can support you and who you can support. Reach out to others but don't force relationships that aren't happening naturally. Remain positive and constructive in these interactions. Expect your network to shift as your career and responsibilities shift.   Advice for women who are facing career choices Don't underestimate your ability to take on new challenges and be successful. Take credit for your accomplishments and incorporate your successes internally. There is great power in the ability to say no to something that doesn't feel right. Ensure that your personal and professional goals are aligned — there is more to life than work.   Advice for your younger self Don't sweat the small stuff. Get more sleep! Take care of yourself so that you can function well as a human being. Consider the long game in all that you take on. Don't choreograph your future too tightly — be open to new opportunities.

In Dirty Work: Essential Jobs and the Hidden Toll of Inequality in America (Farrar, Straus and Giroux on August 17, 2021), New Yorker contributor Eyal Press profiles dozens of workers to explain Americans have delegated society's most unpleasant, morally troubling tasks to a separate, largely invisible class of dirty workers, revealing painful truths about the structure of work in America. For Labor Day 2021, Press is calling on Americans to look at the work taking place – especially those difficult jobs society considers essential but morally compromised. The COVID-19 pandemic has drawn unprecedented attention to essential workers, and to the health and safety risks to which workers in the Florida prisons and slaughterhouses are exposed. Other jobs highlighted include drone pilots who carry out targeted assassinations, Google site engineers developing artificial intelligence, oil rig workers and much more. Dirty Work examines a less familiar set of occupational hazards: psychological and emotional hardships such as stigma, shame, PTSD, and moral injury. These burdens fall disproportionately on low-income workers, undocumented immigrants, women, and people of color. As Press explores many different examples of dirty work, certain commonalities begin to emerge: Inequality: workers often feel trapped in occupations by economic circumstances, even though their work produces enormous profits for their employers. Unequal distribution of dirty work therefore becomes yet another symptom of economic inequality, allowing more fortunate Americans to occupy more socially respected professions. "Moral injury" or the psychological or even spiritual cost of transgressing one's own sense of morality. “The invisible class” also suffers from invisible wounds from America's status quo. For example, progressive-minded individuals may look down on slaughterhouse workers, but it does not stop many from consuming meat. In each case, Press finds the desire for lower “costs” including cheaper consumer prices, fewer American casualties in foreign wars, less government spending, etc. has led to the exploitation of these workers. Press explains, when abuses have been exposed, such as the crowded, unsanitary conditions that led to the rampant spread of Covid-19 among slaughterhouse workers, Americans have been led to believe “the key moral failures rested with a few reckless individuals, rather than with the system in which they worked.” Dirty Work is full of gut-wrenching scenes, including a congressional hearing about the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion in which politicians expressed more concern about the disaster's impact on native bird populations than the deaths of 11 oil workers.

Lately, the words of Greek Philosopher Heraclitus seem to ring truer than ever: Change really is the only constant. As societies grapple with COVID-19, racial justice, environmental crises, and rapidly shifting technology, it's become clear that the current political-economic framework is fraying. Is it time to make new moral and political choices about our future? How can we revamp current frameworks to fit an ever-changing set of needs? Stanford University's Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences (CASBS) hosts an entire program dedicated to just that question. The “Creating a New Moral Political Economy” program comprises over 100 academics, journalists, politicians, civil society activists, and technologists concerned with the future of capitalist democracies, all led by political scientist Margaret Levi. Levi's work with CASBS, along with former director Federica Carugati, led to the publication of their new book, A Moral Political Economy: Present, Past, and Future. In Town Hall's 107th episode of the In the Moment podcast, Steve Scher talks with Levi about the book and how economies reflect the moral and political choices that are forever made and remade, over and over again. Margaret Levi is the Sara Miller McCune Director of the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences (CASBS), Professor of Political Science, and Senior Fellow of the Woods Institute for the Environment at Stanford University. She is the recipient of a vast array of honors and achievements, including the 2019 Johan Skytte Prize and the 2014 William H. Ryker Prize for Political Science. She has also been awarded several fellowships from major institutions including the National Academy of Sciences in 2015, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2001, the American Academy of Political and Social Science in 2017, and the American Philosophical Society in 2018, among others. She was a John Simon Guggenheim Fellow in 2002. Levi is the author or coauthor of numerous articles and six books. Her research continues to focus on how to improve the quality of government and how to generate a better political-economic framework. She is also committed to understanding and improving supply chains so that the goods we consume are produced in a manner that sustains both the workers and the environment. Steve Scher is a podcaster and interviewer and has been a teacher at the University of Washington since 2009.

Jesse Graham studies human morality and what it means for our political opinions. He's an Associate Professor of Management at the Eccles School of Business at the University of Utah. As a graduate student with Jonathan Haidt, he helped develop Moral Foundations Theory (MFT), which has gone on to be a massively influential theory of morality and how it develops. One of Jesse's key insights was that these moral foundations help explain the divides between liberal and conservative people, which has implications for all kinds of political opinions and pressing topics like political polarization.In our conversation, Jesse fills us in on the early days of his research and the development of MFT over time, walks through the implications of MFT for political ideology, and reflects on where the theory is now.Things that come up in this episode:Divisions between liberal and conservatives: antipathy (Iyengar et al., 2019), geographic segregation (Motyl et al., 2014), avoiding each other's opinions (Frimer, Skitka, & Motyl, 2017), and even shorter Thanksgiving dinners (Chen & Rohla, 2018; Frimer & Skitka, 2020)Jonathan Haidt's “Social Intuitionist Model” of morality (Haidt, 2001)Moral Foundations Theory (Graham et al., 2013; for a useful overview, check out MoralFoundations.org)Values beyond the moral (Schwartz, 1992)How adult political leanings can be predicted from observations of them as kids (Block & Block, 2006)Ideology and geographic preferences (Motyl et al., 2020)Moral foundations and the basis of vaccine attitudes (Amin et al., 2017; Karimi-Malekabadi et al., 2021), needle exchange attitudes (Christie et al., 2019), and a variety of political attitudes including abortion (Koleva et al., 2012)For a transcript of this episode, visit: http://opinionsciencepodcast.com/episode/moral-foundations-political-opinion-with-jesse-grahamCheck out my new audio course on Knowable: "The Science of Persuasion."Learn more about Opinion Science at http://opinionsciencepodcast.com/ and follow @OpinionSciPod on Twitter.
