9:32 am
and the questions that were there could return for an unprecedented 3rd term. there are also questions surrounding the top contenders and the governing liberal democratic party with reports noting both have signaled they would take a more hawkish approach to china and have supported plans through increased your pans military defenses. along with this present, that c and the economic form has kicked off in russia as leaders from the key players spoke about a host of issues ranging from economic development in the region to the situation in afghanistan, to the coven. 19 pandemic. the 3 day for him kicked off on thursday in the rush report, city of lot of boston, which sit on the sea of japan. several leaders spoke at the event, including shooting, ping of china, who addressed the form virtually distressed. the need for stability in the region. for me i was able to be, we should make concerted effort in safeguarding regional stability, bridge our differences, dialoguing communication and build consensus to establish security concept that
9:33 am
share the comprehensive, cooperative, sustainable. so we can together build a peaceful and harmonious homeland blank. r t correspondent julia shop of oliver has been covering the event and rushes far east and brings at the latest from the annual conference. i've got it down situation dominating discussion on the eastern economic forum and rushes lead davis stock lessons learned the topic on everyone's lips. india and galia complex found and thailand are among those gathered with the hose, the development of the northern c route, and the economy of the whole, the far east and pacific region and india. also on the agenda. debris couple of guys found it and nobody is interested trends. the russian president in b opening address today the taliban does control most of the territory of afghanistan. and we have to be realistic. we have to look at what's really the
9:34 am
behind the taliban statements. russia has no interest in the disintegration of afghanistan, or else there will be no one to negotiate with. so the sooner the taliban joins, so to speak, the family of civil states, the easier it will be to communicate with them, to ask them questions, civilized negotiation men, certain rules, and with the country disintegrated? that's impossible. he added that a lesson from i've got to stand was that democracy cannot be imposed by violent methods from the outside stating that if people need it, they will, can put on their own. what's happened in afghanistan is indeed a catastrophe. is not my word. it's american analyst saying it's americans are pragmatic people and have spent over $1.00 trillion dollars on the african campaign . but to what end, there is none. and this is a humanitarian catastrophe as well. if you look at the number of people left there,
9:35 am
people who work for the western forces, i hope the west will come to understand that their old policy, namely, to civilize other states forcibly. and bringing elements of modern civilization in the image of western countries themselves. is a mistake, russia and other regional powers code on the global community to come together to solve the problem. most also place to develop the transport potential of the far east, including building the capabilities of the northern sea route by $20.00 to $24.00. the volume of freight traffic along the route should grow to $18000000.00 tons per year, stress the russian president, while also encouraging other countries to support the project. the new route and alternative to this so as can now passes through russian territorial waters. and according to moscow, is the safest and most profitable route ever. it will come the journey from japan to the netherlands to 20 days, from the existing 1st 3 days by the existing suez canal,
9:36 am
and indian ocean root. of course, another major talking point was the corona virus thailand, calling on member states to establish a unified system recognition of vaccination certificates to revive the tourism industry. the tie pam added that for many countries. tourism is a key drive away, can only development, and it has been devastated by the pandemic. so it was a lot to take on and will need some far analysis and implementation in the foreseeable future. you follow the debate over free speech and censorship is moving to a new level as amazon a w s has announced that it will begin a proactive approach to determine what types of content violate it's cloud services . policy reports say the rules are against promoting violence and will enforce its removal and move likely to renew debate about how much power tech companies should have to restrict free speech. to joining us now to discuss it. and investigative
9:37 am
journalist, ben swan, are a, been a w. s, has already begun taking down websites that seem to promote violence in the wake of the killing of 13 us marines. and i can't stand. so why is that a problem? well, that isn't of itself. i don't think it's a problem certainly. i mean, we could, we could debate why it might be, but here's, here's kind of the story behind that. so you've got this isis back web site, reportedly that was basically excited about the killing of those 13 marines in afghanistan. and it was praising this action and it was promoting more violence against the united states. amazon was tipped off to it by some folks in the news media. and they took down that website amazon for folks who don't know this a to be wes controls about 40 percent of all cloud computing in the united states. so they are extremely powerful and extremely influential in terms of websites. so that includes not just, you know, storage, but it also includes the ability to even host a website. they control much of kind of the backbone of the internet as it's called
9:38 am
. and so a to be wes decided it was going to take down this website. it did so, and most people would say, hey, that's fine, that's good. we don't want to see websites doing that. the problem is, of course, it never stays in just one website or one area. and amazon is already talking about how was going to build a new team and essentially target websites and target any kind of storage of content that it deems as being extremist. and that's so word that kind of goes along with what we call a slippery slope. because what is extreme us to one person is not necessarily extreme us to another. and i want, i want to hit on that point about the reports that indicate that amazon will hire a small group of people in it. amazon web services division to develop expertise and work with outside researchers to monitor for future threat. what exactly does that mean, ben? well, that's a good question. what exactly does that mean? so here's what we know. it does not mean so according to amazon, this new team is not going to be going back and looking over existing content
9:39 am
that's already being hosted in its cloud services, which is strange because what they said they are going to do is now be looking ahead to any content that might be in the future posted that would be considered extreme. it's. so how do you know what's going to be extreme as well? it sounds like what, what amazon is really saying is they're going to keep an eye out on certain types of thought or speech that they view as extremist. and they're going to get rid of those sites before they really gain traction before they are visited by a lot of people. and the goal here seems to be less about taking down existing sites because there's a lot of debate about that. as you guys know, it's very politically charge and instead denying the entrance of those sites in the 1st place. and that's where again, it becomes problematic because of this small team by amazon. and by the way, they're new head of global policy who they're looking for right. now decide that certain content should never exist in the 1st place. amazon has a lot of power to keep a lot of different websites from ever, even making their way onto the internet. wow, that sounds like
9:40 am
a lot of power and just a few people making those very important decisions. now while we have you on here, i want to bring up another story that got a lot of coverage, which was that on friday, apple announced that it will delay its plan to scan users, photo libraries for images of child export ation. why is the company holding off? yeah, well, they got a ton of backlash, as you guys know, from this decision to, to move forward with scanning through icloud photos and storage on people phones looking for what they say or child porn images. now it won't be people doing it, it's algorithms that are essentially looking for certain kinds of content. and if a, as they're scanning through your content, they come across a few things that they think are suspicious than a human would go in and begin to look at it. and if they find child pornography images, they would then for those on the authorities and a lot of people in hearing that don't have an objection to you trying to root out child pornography. the problem is, is that, once you begin to do this, it opens it up for you to do it on any number of things, any,
9:41 am
any kind of content that you want to scan through and look through and decide what should and should not be allowed. and i think this story continues to go back to the idea that more and more we have a few companies that get to make enormous numbers of decisions over conduct, belief and behavior. and that is incredibly difficult in a society that's supposed to be a free society. it doesn't feel very free, certainly not when it's a few oligarchs who seem to have all the power. and even at the time when we're talking about how much power they have, and how about it is and they keep getting more and more power, we're going to have to leave it right there. boom bus, spend one. thank you for your time and insight. thank you. the markets are mix this week as investors continue to keep an eye on the state of the economic recovery. let's start in russia where the mo act is up sitting at record highs after gaining more than 2 and a half percent for the week. in july rush,

h. s. market predicting the block will return to prepare demick levels by the end of the year. but while fears of the delta barion were all around, it was the ongoing supply chain shortage. the impact of the economy, the most last month and across the atlantic in brazil, the ego vesa is down. we are seeing the full impact of a 2nd wave of cobra, 1900 on the country. the latest data shows brazil's economy contract is slightly between april and june, with gdp falling point one percent. but officials continue to expect brazil to see growth of more than 5 percent for the year and over and mexico to b and b is down on this as crude oil production in the gulf took a hip this we as production was cut and 91 percent early on in preparation for hurricane ida, mexico was also implementing some major changes to its welfare programs, with the government increasing spending by 20 percent moving forward. and here in the united states,
9:46 am
the dow is in the red while the nasdaq and the s m p finish the week in the green. not to say that the latest jobs report was disappointing would be an understatement . as the labor department revealed that non foreign payrolls increased by just 2 135000 august, despite expectations of 720000. now questions remain as to whether the report will impact the fed timeline for recovery. and finally, in canada, the t s. x is up, the index was carried by gaines in the industrial sector with railroad stocks, jumping as much as 4 percent after kansas city southern and said it would reconsider a buyout from canadian pacific for 25000000000 dollars. moving into next week, we will continue to monitor the state of staffing and supply chain shortages and their impact on the global recovery time for a quick break. but when we come back, the semiconductor chip shortage continues to make waived across the globe. and several major players in the auto industry have been forced to scale back operation
9:47 am
. and as going to break here, the numbers at the close, the wrong driven by remember, shaped by those in ah, dares thing we dare to ask me. own drunk started as a way to combat a great problem. what's the one?
9:48 am
it's part of the attitude of the nation, not just of north dakota, and it got to be something that you could get elected. this time, the fight against drugs took a check and told us that andrew was competing short form. this is way too dangerous for him to be doing. clearly, they put him in harm's way. a rural college student does interest get shot in the head and found in a river like that. something else had to be happening. the families that mark i took market function, you know, what was like a good way to check the number. how do i make
9:49 am
john? i got i've got that limit and i wanted them to be skills that you go to the left me about the less about i get up there for us, let me use and it's all about proximity. and as we talked about before, they can tell it a fact. if you're close to the central bank, you get the money 1st and you get to put it in to things like assets and then as the money works its way through the economy, those assets go up a lot. and this is how the one income gap is created.
9:50 am
the welcome back. the global chip shortage is continuing to take a toll on the auto industry of board. in general, motors have announced plans to scale back production amid the supply chain issue g . m will be idling nearly all of its north american assembly plant. starting on monday, a handful of facilities producing full size, s u. v. heavy duty pick up and corvette income, the camaro will remain operational operation. no, for the time being. ford will be rolling back production at many of its plants, which includes reducing number of shifts operating assembly live. as we have mentioned recently, the semiconductor shortage has taken a toll on the auto industry. as the crucial chips are using components such as airbags and touch screen display and pretty much every other portion of a vehicle, ford recently reported new vehicle sales in august decline by nearly a 3rd due to the shortage. and this begs the question,
9:51 am
how long can the situation affect the auto industry? so to discuss, let's bring in or fix the car coach. lauren, always the pleasure to have you on the program. i mean, how much will scaling back to production actually affect the bottom line for the board of g m. after we've already seen for sale down and for august. oh, you're going to see a huge impact to the auto industry. i ran into an executive of toyota the other day and i was speaking to them about their situation and they're doing the best of all of the brands and even everything we're getting about a 1000000 cars a month. that's. that means you're talking about 12 to 13000000 and sales to give you an idea. last year was 17100000. then we had a huge demand after coven production start renting back up. and they were calling for demand of highs, 18000000 light trucks and cars. that's huge, that's the biggest we've had in decades. but the problem with this is, if there's no chips, there's no cars being produced. and this is exactly where we are now from the
9:52 am
impact is huge. it's going to affect jobs going to affect the economy and all the sub suppliers that make components. for example, pyre, companies, electronics, companies, safety equipment companies. because if they're not producing, even if they can produce, there's one of those companies that can't. and so that affects the total sales of automobiles. now we know that the shortage isn't anything new. i mean, it feels like we've been talking about the supply chain disruption for quite a while now. so is there any end in sight for the auto industry specifically? well that, that's a hard part. if you and i together decided we're going to start a chip company, and when the 3 of us are gonna get together, we're gonna create a chip company from this moment of deciding to do it to actually producing chips that we could use for production of anything we're looking at a 3 year window. the problem with that is, it's too long and at that point there's other people in the marketplace. so we know it won't be that long for companies that used to produce chips to get ramped back up. it's about a 9 month window, so probably looking into 2022 now and they keep pushing it forward. the problem is
9:53 am
the ceramics that come on the boards, if you've ever taken apart a computer or seen inside of a television, you see those green boards. that's all ceramics that comes out of another ones. that's not the problem. the metals come out of china. that's where the problem is, and there are companies that are 40 new ships and they're increasing the prices and the restricting them intentionally in order to increase the prices. and this isn't putting a real squeeze on the whole world and all of global sales. and you just mentioned a point that i wanted to bring up next because earlier in august, china's anti trust regulators, lots investigation into car chip distributors who allegedly are hoarding the much needed semiconductor. so what exactly is going on there? and is this actually exasperating the problem? it is, it actually exasperating the problem. so if you have a supply and demand, the demand of high cars want to be produced with whatever component. because you may think it's just the screens, but it could be a safety system like any like product breaks. it could be the chip that's used in
9:54 am
a key fob. she's got companies like condo shipping, your vehicles with one key fob will ship you the other one we can, or general motors saying, you know, we're going to take out that start stop technology and no wireless charging. we're seeing a lot of the higher luxury brands. no longer putting in those big screens because they use so many chips. you're talking about thousands of them per car. so i mean with that type of situation. what's the, what's the holdup everyone's? what's the holdup is china will release the metals and we have the ceramics, why are we not producing these? it's because those that are producing and those are middle men are the ones that are making the money by reducing the supply to increase the price. okay, all right, well thank you for breaking it all down for us. all right, and i also want to bring up the used cars here because last month, some analysts believe used car prices would start to fall after being up due to a lack of supply. do these continuing chip issues point to prices continuing to stay high as well? prices are out of this world. if you've got a secondary car that you're not using or a 3rd car you think, you know,
9:55 am
is thinking about getting rid of it. now the time to sell, it is not the time to buy. to give you an idea, every sales are up between 34 and 45 percent. corvettes in sports. cars are literally, you can even touch them if you're looking at a portion and you decide you want to go buy a $911.00, you'll be paying $30000.00 to $40000.00 over sticker right now. you can get them. and those that are coming in again, supply and demand is all economics, one on one. so sports cars are high, luxury cars are hard to even daily drivers, a minivan or a little sedan. we think all the sales are and that sedans can't get them. so that supplies high, so use car market is on fire. it's absolutely crazy. the parts of the economy post pandemic, or if you want to consider what we are post pandemic that are still going crazy. lauren fixed the car coach. thank you so much for breaking all this down for today . thank you. and finally, if you have visited a mcdonalds and we told you can't order a mac flurry because the ice cream machine is broken,
9:56 am
you're not alone. the running joke about why the machines always seem to be down has now coffee attention of the federal trade commission. that's right. the wall street journal is reporting that the s t c is on the case with officials reaching out to ask the company why their ice cream machine keep breaking down. owners have said this is actually a real problem and it stems from the complicated heat cleaning cycle that is required for the machines each night when the process doesn't fully work, they have to call in a repair technician. however, mcdonalds has actually denied the report with the company saying it is working to streamline the process, but it isn't under tc investigation just yet. i've been to many a mcdonald's in my life, and i have to say, i think the to see if they aren't on this case. they certainly need to make sure that wall street or bar is correct, or just trying to get our met them for the time you get boom bus on demand, on the portable tv app available on smartphones and tablets, google play in the apple app store by searching portable tv,

that wants to take over the world. that was a culture strategy. so i'm going to noon, i english v i. b, i not leashed to austin one tablet block. nato took it out, we moved east, and the reason us had jimmy, it's dangerous. is it the lie? the sovereignty of the countries, the exceptionalism that america uses. and it's international. war planning is one of the greatest threats to the populations of different nations. if nato, what is founded shareholders in the united states and elsewhere in large companies would lose millions and millions or is business and businesses good. and that is the reality of what we're facing, which is fashion long . when i would show the wrong,
