7:04 am
day on the eve of one of the most anticipated meetings of the year. to morrow us president joe biden and russian president vladimir putin will sit down face to face for the 1st time in geneva, switzerland. there is massive security already in place. this sit down comes at one of the lowest points in us, russian relations since the end of the cold war. president biden says there are serious problems to discuss allegations of russian election meddling in the u. s. cyber attacks the conflict in ukraine and while scales cranked down on opposition activities. this will obviously not be a feel good event. in fact, both sides are promising no joint news conference when the meeting is over. that means no repeat what the world witnessed 3 years ago, and he'll think he between fujen and then us president donald trump. this historic lakeside village is getting a new lease of life venue hosting the us russia summit. geneva has been enjoying
7:05 am
a summer heat wave. diplomat, so hoping the talks to will get off with sunny start, putting himself sounding up beats. we deal with some it will help restore our personal contacts and establish a direct dialogue and we can cooperate. the american side are talking the same way and i generally agree with them. areas of mutual interest include strategic stability, regional conflicts, and protecting the global environment. we can work together effectively if you feel them when fighting republican previous s a. donald trump was keen to play up his personal relations with other world leaders, including boots in we're going to have, but even before taking office in january biden has maintained a much tougher line on russia actually agreeing on american television that he thinks putin as a killer adversaries, and in fact,
7:06 am
the leaders have met before 10 years ago and biden was us vice president. he later revealed, he had told putin he didn't believe the russian leader had a sol biden's 1st overseas tourist president has taken in summits of the g 7 in britain, at nato, in brussels. we think, speaking to the nato secretary general fighting with forthright on russia. i think that there is a growing recognition over the last couple years that we have new challenges and we have russia that is not acting in a way that is consistent with what we had hoped in the run up to the talks in geneva put in for his pots, his already dismissed allegations that russia is carrying out cyber attacks against the us. the talks may turn out to be somewhat frosty.
7:07 am
well, for more i'm joined tonight by jonathan, can. he's a senior fellow with the german marshall fund of the united states. you join me tonight from washington, jonathan, it's good to see you again to get you back on the show. in your opinion, what would be the best realistic outcome of tomorrow's talks? well 1st i just want to say that that, i think president biden is, is going into this with some momentum after having had a very successful g 7, nato summit in us use solve it. and so i think he's done what he needed to do, which is consult with allied restraint and trans atlantic security cooperation and focus both not only on russia but also china as well. so i think he's are, he is already heated out of the park using a u. s. baseball metaphor. but i think the best outcome tomorrow is that the
7:08 am
president is firm with mr. booth about his own red lives in the united states, including many things that were just mentioned, cyber hacking threats to ukraine, the treatment of russian opposition leader alexis of all me. so there's a number of things that are on the table. and i think many people believe there's one, there's not high expectations for the outcomes to the summit. but at a minimum of the us and russia need to be sitting down at a table and communicating, given the stakes of issues that are on the table, the u. s president says he is not looking for conflict with food and but if us intelligence is correct, putins, russia has been working non stop to create conflicts with the us. so how do these 2 liters? how do they talk about that without talking around that? yeah, well i think there's going to be, again,
7:09 am
a lot of straight talk from this present president biden about these challenges already. you've seen it in the u. s. response in terms of both sanction but also again in terms of how it is approaching some of these issues with russia, including on cyber. and i think that's particularly important that the us presidents send those strong messages right now if it's diplomacy, this is one meeting. this may lead to additional meeting to after that, but i do think that you're going to be a little bit of a, talking over each other when it comes to each other's points of view. mr. newton is, is not a democracy talker. see. and he makes a decision about its country direction based on himself and himself alone. president bud and the other hand is dealing with a number of issues, both mastic international and i think those are what he is keeping in mind when he's having these conversations. what does by you see him out of the park in terms
7:10 am
of reassuring european allies, but what will he bring with him tomorrow in terms of native for example, will he have a new native strategy? me when he speaks about drawing lines and responding militarily? if they are cross, if he's speaking they are as the us commander in chief, isn't it? he's speaking as a us commander chief, but what he's really done is, is brought back this alliance. if you think about where we were a year ago with president trump, to where we are today with president bided and analyze, really singing from the same song sheet about the need to strengthen nato, internally, whether we're talking about commitments, about funding, but also in terms of technology, cyber, but also dealing with some really key issues that i think the translating community don't often get put on the table when we start talking about russia. but we're talking about coven 19. we're talking about economies that have been devastated over the last year. and then we're talking about these agreements that we're
7:11 am
reaching putting on and on boeing and airbus, which may not seem important to this conversation, but our integral to this administration strategy, revitalizing this relationship, but also deepening it in a way that we're able to address challenges that we see coming down the road technological challenges, including from china. yeah, exactly. shine is the key word here. and i wonder, is russia our concentration on russia at the moment? is it, you know, sucking up all of the oxygen here? i mean, would you, would you agree that china poses a bigger long term threat to the transit gland community than russia does? well, i think, i think this administration one in, from everything they're saying, including this entire week, the president, president by was very quick even as he was leaving the united states to talk about russia. so i don't think they view, maybe they're, you know, this is more sort of in depressed, or maybe in think tanks and elsewhere where we're talking about one threat versus
7:12 am
together. i think the united states use both as challenges, challenges, competitors, threats, when they can be and then also opportunities to try to find areas to work together . so it's, it's a mix i, i see this administration very much walking and chewing gum, both dealing with the foreign policy challenges that, that have been on the agenda this week. but also dealing with these domestic challenges of ending cobit 19 addressing economic challenges. and also the issue that underlined every document that i've seen this week, which is strengthening democracy and strengthening transatlantic values. and as a main competitor to talk proceeds, including china and russia, very reason before we run out of time, john, do you think, are you of the opinion that president bind will return to the united states as a stronger us president than he was when he left i think that he definitely has bank, i think, greater support for the u. s. policies,
7:13 am
both domestically and internationally, including the need to address the economic needs. but there is a number of challenges domestically that the president will deal with immediately including amount of infrastructure bill. also american democracy is still challenged. we see that across the number of days. so i think it was a very successful chip for president biden. but knowing him in his administration, they only focus on the diplomacy or the optics, but they want to get things done. but i think that when they come back they'll be a full agenda. but i think they will absolutely bank the strength and relationship with transatlantic partners that this is just the beginning of a lot of hard work. jonathan can with the german marshal point of the us, jonathan is always we appreciate your time and your insights tonight. thank you. thank you. you well, cyber attacks launched inside russia against targets in the united states. it's a real problem, but things could get a whole lot worse experts or warning that there's a growing risk of cyber conflict hitting the world of nuclear weapons with
7:14 am
potentially devastating consequences. and they want to put in by the summit to do something about it. or chief international editor richard walker has this report. ready in northern england, not far from the coast, you can find a place called filing tales approaches for space. it's notable not for it's plains for what they call the pyramid. a giant radar that belongs to america's early warning system. it's a system that reaches out to space where lights keep watch from hi hope it all part of the command control lab races in charge of us nuclear weapons me because the nervous system of the west and military alliance. it's so important that the u. s. says that if it were attacked, it might respond with nuclear weapons, and yet it is vulnerable in new and dangerous ways. the 1st only warning
7:15 am
systems were built during the cold war. over the years they've been upgraded, enjoying the digital age, and that has opened them up to possible cyber attack old fashion. you click them on the control systems that didn't use digital systems where inoperable cyber attack, there's no code there to do the attack. today the systems have become potentially tempting side, but target various countries that could have incentives to little side, the espionage or path to cyber attacks. by searching malware it gave us the warning system. korea would have an incentive for doing it. china would have an incentive doing. russia would have an incentive for doing. it may be others to experts run 3 scenarios, working out what might happen if the systems came under attack. they show up huge scope for uncertainty and dangerous miscalculation. if you've got malicious code in your networks, it's very hard to know what that code does. it takes
7:16 am
a long time to analyze the code, understand what the other site is doing. and this makes it very hard to know whether is malicious toady job espionage or it also for offensive operations as well. in the worst case, a cyber attack could unleash the spiral of escalation, right up to one side, launching a nuclear weapon, taking the world to the brink of disaster. me want to cross that threshold for nuclear 1st uses. you have to worry that it's going to escalate into something like fully apocalyptic civilization. and this is just sort of disaster that the whole world has an interest in preventing. so if the putin biden summit is to mean anything, this is where it could make a start. and join now are here in the studio by the author of that report. you just
7:17 am
saw the w chief international editor richard walker richards. going to see you again. it's going to see you in the studio again, lots of new things this week. walk me through this. now, how does a cyber attack, and i know that americans listening to this will be thinking about the attack that was recently done on a pipeline in the united states. how does a cyber attack escalate into a nuclear war? it has the stream just net brand, but essentially what you have is, is these things that the inherent i burn weapons that we just heard about. that this uncertainty the ambiguity to deny ability that kind of surrounds them when they collide with the massive tensions that we have between the great powers at the moment between particular, between the us and russia. but also china. you know, it could also, equally be a part of this. and then on top of that, you have the really astronomical stakes involved with nuclear weapons. those 3 things are really dangerous makes. and essentially what happens in the scenario is
7:18 am
you have a ratcheting up of action and counter action in this kind of fog of uncertainty, against the backdrop of all of those, all of those tensions. and that is what can lead you to the very dangerous places. i mean, it sounds like things can get out of control much more quickly than they could in the, the analog world. i mean, this sounds like an area where both presidents really have no choice but to find some common ground. they have to cooperate here. i mean, how much hope is there, that putin and biden are going to do that? yeah, well, expert patients based on a really very low but talking to experts on both sides, the relationship is so bad that the moment that you know hopes for any kind of breakthrough, a probably naive. but if these, if there is one area where they can come together, if there is one area where the kind of mutual interest really overshadows,
7:19 am
that desire to be on top, that it has to be in this area of arms control and this area call strategic stability which is this idea that between great powers, you don't want one power to be kind of getting a huge advantage in one area against the other power. or also this area of crisis stability, where you don't want crises to spin out of control, you want them to be kind of manageable. and that's the fear at the moment is that the tension is so bad between the 2 sides. that if you then pile something like this on top of those late intentions, then it could been as control. so neither side has any interest in, in, you know, escalating to a nuclear war that none of this i'd really wanted. but this is a danger that these experts have been telling us is real. so i think when we're looking at what could happen in geneva, this is going to be really telling what's out for this. do the 2 sides come out and stay off to it? okay, we're not friends now, but we've realized that we have an issue here. we're going to get our teams expert
7:20 am
starting to talk about this, this area strategic stability compact. this i've been nuclear. if they come out and say that, then that's a good sign. if they don't come out to say that if there really is nothing out of this, that is a very bad sign that things are going to get even what you know we, we don't want to engage here and scare mongering. but i mean, how close has the world been to this kind of doomsday event? i mean, is it even possible to know that? well, that's what, so worrying about this new world that we're entering upside war, we don't know. and there's a massive incentive if you are hit by this kind of cyber attack, not this not to come out about and talk to the public about that to try and keep it quiet. so we simply don't know. but the message coming from these experts is we need to talk about this. these leaders need to talk about this is difficult to talk . that was, is highly sensitive. but if they don't, we could end up in
7:21 am
a dangerous place. all right? or even national as miss walker richard. excellent. reporting and a fascinating, scary subject. thank the day, the hungarian parliament passed a law that makes it illegal to mention gazer, lesbians in the presence of children. now it bands from schools and television programming for minors. any material deemed to promote homosexuality or gender reassignment. the government says the legislation targets head of files, but human rights groups say the law is simply homophobic. a kind of to show support for l g b t writes outside parliament in the past. whether such public displays are still legal is now in doubt. the new law just passed fans anything deemed to promote homosexuality to children, including bringing up l g b,
7:22 am
t issues and gender diversity in schools. those behind the new legislation say it's protect children. campaigners condemned the law as a cynical attempt to link homosexuality with sexual deviant, equating sexual and gender diversity with peter filia strikes at the very core of the human dignity and humility of l. g. b t. people and hungary and poses a real risk of putting them and their safety and well being in danger. prime minister victor oberon singled out the children's book featuring gender diverse characters. he said it crossed a red line, others on the far right and they will the book, homosexual propaganda. books like that as well as advertisement showing same sex relationships and now banned. when a good marriage mad me the viagra, me been children have
7:23 am
a right to know the world. they live in more than my dad or they have a right. you know what social reality has now? hungary, social realities, less bisexual, transgender people. and part of the role of education is to make children fully aware of the 600, right. when government has cracked down on l. g b t, right? not recognizing gay marriage banning l. g b t couples from adopting and out flooring gender changes the l. g. b t, community fear the new law is just the next step in the erosion of their rights or more. i'm joined now by insult vicar road. she is a legal officer and coordinator of the hungarian helsinki committee. that's a non governmental human rights watch. donkey join us tonight from budapest, it's good to have you on the program. let me ask you something about the, the,
7:24 am
the legislation that was passed today. there was only one vote against it in parliament. does this reflect the will of the hungarian people? i mean, it's an overwhelming support for the law in parliament. hey, good evening and thank you for having me. this vote proportion does not reflect the general opinion of the hungarian public, but he reflects is how many members of parliament are present for the vote? many abstain, they can't be too conscious decision and walked out because they did not want to participate in this erosion of fries. and this is deeply anti democratic decision that links being gay and lesbian are transgender to better. filia, they didn't want to coord to corporate or assist in the systemic child abuse that the hunk area and government is now engaged in order to gain
7:25 am
a little momentum. let me, let me ask you about that. the government says that this legislation is trying to target and stop pet files, but we know that the data everywhere shows is that it's not the l g b t community that's usually guilty of pedophilia. it's usually heterosexual. married men who know their victim has that has that fact been communicated thoroughly to the public in hungary certainly what we have in the home here in helsinki community, another and geo have been very strongly advocating for and, and trying to get through to the general public in the past couple of days was that this is a deeply disgusting attempt from the government to link, but of failure to, to being gay. clearly it is the end of the political tool in the hands of the government. what they're trying to, to use to do revise the opposition,
7:26 am
what needs to be borne in mind that next year is an election year in hungary and the government is clearly trying to do what their backpack and hate mongering. this is a strategy tactic that they have been using ever since the days of the refugee christ . within 2015, they constantly create a vision of an enemy that they can then defeat. and behind this smoke screen, what they're doing is the technically eroding the marker. the freedoms and the rule of law. this new piece of legislation is deeply disgusting. piece of legislation that they act today and open system of children's fundamental right to, to protection to safe development and safety. calling to leave as he be the children at an extremely dark and lonely place. it is going to enable, believe it is going to enable ma being it is going to got away l g b, p,
7:27 am
children from the lifelines that they truly need in order to be safe in order to feel respected in order to have their human dignity respected well a lot. is that correct? unfortunately, we are out of time, but this is definitely a topic that deserves more time and we will be following this story and please come and talk with this again, the 2nd from the hungarian house thinking committee. thank you. thank you. very much well the day is almost done, but the conversation continues online. you'll find us on twitter either w news or you can follow me at brent golf t v. i remember whatever happens between now and then, tomorrow is another day we'll see you then everybody who's
7:28 am
the news. the news, the news brave new world post corona virus. he's an equality home office and lonely poverty economy. inner peace of life and frenzy online shopping conservation vaccination. there was ation space mass sounds build everything. what kinds of ways of waiting
7:29 am
for us after corona and are we ready for me in germany next, on the w d. us vaccination campaign is making good progress snot everywhere. it is reflected by many in the mountains. plenty of doses remain and here they only herbal medicine. and god can dr. hensley from the local hospital waste global 3060 minutes on the w. o. the the world to get to go beyond as we take on
7:30 am
the world. we're all about a story that matter to you. i believe my we are here is actually on fire made for mines. mm hm. ah ah ah, ah, ah, inflation is urging, as many countries emerged from lockdown that could see interest rates rise sooner than expected. and that could hamper the global economic recovery. but just what
7:31 am
sort of recovery is it going to be? because a lot of nations are still struggling with the crisis. they don't even have a vaccines yet. some economists are predicting a very and even recovery, no, just for developed and developing economies, but also for various parts of society. the big question is, can government steers in the right direction, the perfect time to look at lessons learned from the pandemic? a year ago, things looked very different. a thick cloud of uncertainty and fear hung over our heads. economies were in freefall as countries shut the borders factories, schools and sent every one home. we basically went into hiding, scared of catching this new virus, that really none of us really knew much about. back then i talk to 5 top economists about their predictions for the business world and are working lives a year on. i spoke to him again in the hope of guttering a little more hope. ah,
7:32 am
i think you should be confident. not optimistic, but confident. this is one of them most severe crisis in the world history you ever had. but on the other hand, of course, we see also very positive things off. let's say people sitting in the same boat, not, i don't think we have one enough. i think we're still stumbling on why forward. so we have amateur drive, is that the wheels of the level of economy? and that's the main danger we me and i make, has increased corporation in society, has been a lot of cooperation across country. that's a big source of innovation, where we do need to go now is a more inspiring collective future vision of what we want our economy to look like . and this is the moment to do it. i april
7:33 am
2020 was grim. where is everyone? now there's like, at the end of the tunnel, there's a vaccine. we have a strong instrument in our hands to fight this pandemic. a year ago, it wasn't clear we would have a year ago. economists were trying to predict what sort of the recession was coming of be signifies a sharp brief decline, followed by a rebalance w double the procession, l. the plunge that stays down low for a long time. it was nothing like an out of shape recession. fortunately, we would have been far worse without that level of government spending. it was between the v shaped recession and something maybe like a w was and up and down a roller coaster situation. but at the very end, i'm quite confident that we are not really on b up the track. the. it depends who we referred to.
7:34 am
what has become very clear is that we're looking at k shaped recovery, the continued polarization, a hollowing out of the middle class, the concentration of workers in low skilled, low pay job, and then concentration of workers, and high skilled, high paid job. the pandemic was a major dis equalizer. i think that is probably the key issue between rich and poor after the crisis at this trend is really accelerating. what about the record amounts of money government the spending to rebuild economy? this is only going to maintain a status quo that already working. we will see more home office working from home. and, and that mean more options for highly trained and hide you educated workers. we've also seen, of course, and digitization and acceleration. again,
7:35 am
this favors highly educated people and, and all those who are able to walk in this digital digital, digital world. and now post the pullback of some of the support measures. you can probably expect that for those that were already having a difficult time, things will get worse. there has definitely been a will transfer again to the wealthy and the like every everything and happens in western economy. the solution is to make it better by making the wealthy, wealthier, and there has to be a day of reckoning for that. at some stage i heard a year ago, economists daniels stand to toby, just throwing money at the problem wouldn't work all of the past. so the years of solving all problems in the economy, by having cheaper money and more credit and more loans, it's coming to an end. it didn't. governments have never spent so much. but daniel's still not a fan. what is the main drive off? why do the 40 year easy credit,
7:36 am
much more money because created low interest rates and whenever there was a crisis, instead of having to lose money, the bank stepping. so they should either either do their job and get the financial system back to the original role of funding, productive investments, and not speculation. so if you make a late and your make a mistake, if it lose your money and for the rescue, is there something positive that come out of all of it where you okay, the well working up the politics and finally understand economic well, why don't dev on authentic, another adult, to be honest, i see a big risk a petition now have see, believe, let the other ones managing that and i think they have not done a go drop into corona crisis. i fear it's going to be lead to less efficient and effective solutions. and therefore, i would say it's an excuse to put difference to grasp more paula getting bolder is
7:37 am
going to pay off in the longer term, because this is the moment to create the carry economy, to upgrade our education system, to put in place like long learning system to put in place, self sustaining, better social safety nets for the future. all of that happens now. and what about globalization? the pandemic, broad international trade to a screeching halt. the main change over time, i hope will be more localized ation of the manufacturing. i think that we got fox lengthy supply chains, far too much vice and exporting shape wages and the rest of the world. and not developing the domestic economy where the consumption actually occurs. i do not think that globalization would be replaced by regionalization on localisation. we shouldn't forget that locally concentrated production also has its risks. so what we are heading for, i believe, is less concentration, let's say on the cheapest supplier,
7:38 am
but more diversification to be more resilience in future crises. but this may even lead to more often less globalization. i'm very skeptical fraud, for instance, about supply supply chain laws because they split labor markets in poor countries trapped in commodities. and that is not the way we would see for let's say, poorer countries really to catch up technologically. it's not good that developing countries poor countries will always be commodity export us let's that's not the way to development to prosperity the, the, the, the crisis gave us all pause for thought. it gave the environment a break to, but not for long. and wherever the fires came from, even if it came from the hand lab, the ultimate cause of this crisis has been excessive human pressure upon the bonds
7:39 am
fear. and we're going to say more and more instances of that coming back. so the like that, the tunnel maybe the far as far as burning it, if you're bringing the factors down, all of us have seen one dyer warning after another that talks about what, how, how far we have pushed to the limit the planet and how our current economic systems are not compatible with having a more sustainable and greener economy. we have to change our consumption habits, we'll do that. and maybe we'll be more social interconnection and maybe also social, let's say coherence. when we had it before, it has also shown us that maybe we can travel a little less, do more things from home, be and that alone would be more environmentally friendly. so i think there are some positive aspects. all calls will be better to if the next and didn't come
7:40 am
before it say under 2 years. well, this one isn't even we'd be prepared to the next one. we've had enough practice. spends more than enough time it locked down well enough navel gazing for me. let's look at some of the numbers now because we're not going to beat this virus until everyone's back sighted. that's happening at the very uneven rates as you'll see in a moment. and what's emerging is a very uneven recovery between rich and poor nations. remember where all in this together, wasn't that the slogan at the beginning of the crisis? well, the longer this takes, the more chance over 19 has of mutating into something more dangerous than it already is. why don't well lead us get it? in india,
7:41 am
a new wave of the pandemic is claiming thousands of knives the needing to hundreds of thousands of new infections. daily bodies being burned in makeshift pi as the streets. a deserted business has dried up some small stores of had to close or are about to look i don't on 3 of my stuff which were like 8 is or we used to work in my shop. so now there are no more like working for my guys. i wouldn't be able to get in a vaccination is vital worldwide. but at the moment it's largely restricted to industrialized nations. the quota in emerging economies is, was too low. some 89 vaccine doses have been administered by 100 americans in germany. it's $62.00 doses per a 100 people. but argentina lags fall behind with only 28 doses in india. that figure stands that only 15 and in south africa there are only 2 per $100.00.
7:42 am
and yet south africa has by no means got the poorest record in africa. the continent is already paying a high economic price. according to the world health organization in africa. we need the last 2 or 3 open countries, especially and up and up you know, different kinds of limitations of movement including probably show your job limits. michelle 90 further covert waves like that in india, could severely home business in the emerging economies. that's why the world needs a global vaccination campaign, subsidized with billions of us dollars. that's what the organization for economic
7:43 am
