kind of consequently, we can take from listen, i think you take the example flying, it would prevent us from lying. we wouldn't be able to lie anymore if everything becomes transparent, but what we're thinking, we're empowering ourselves to be more efficient, quicker with our transactions. but with that comes a trade off every device p as a potential entry point for security at any machine. and it's an extension of traditional time. the defenders have always been one step behind the attackers. burnett. when one comes option in the offering, it's not a matter of, if it happens, it's a matter of went with

this is boom, but the one business or you can't coordinate on bread to bore in washington coming up, the united states is facing an inflation rate that it has not seen a decade straight ahead, will bring you the latest figures in what it means for consumers as the holiday season. fast approaching. and charges have been levied against the hackers that reeked havoc on american companies over the past year will discuss the div pursuit of the cyber criminal. then we take you inside the trouble. the tesla as the evie titan has seen its stock clip in the last week as the ceo, keep the company in volatility. will lay out the trapping saga. got a lot on the line. let's go. we lead the program with the state of inflation. the world's 2 largest economies, inflation in the united states had a 30 year high in october. the labor department reported wednesday that the consumer price index for 6.2 percent year over year. the highest rate since 1990.
11:32 pm
with a point 9 percent increase from the month of september, a whole host of issues are driving up price including pandemic, and do supply chain constraints. rising energy costs and increased consumer demand . meanwhile, factory gate prices in china rose at their highest clipping more than 2 and a half decade. nations brear bureau of statistics released figures on wednesday, showing producer prices rose 13.5 percent year over year. the biggest increase since $995.00 costs for the materials wholesalers buy from producers has been trending up in recent months. as china dealt with coal shortages with the energy crisis, causing upward pressure on commodity with these numbers, outpacing analysts expectations. what is the outlook for the worlds to most crucial autonomy? joining us out, discuss our friend tolbert smith, he's the ceo of transformative research tobin. it is always a pleasure to have you on the show,
11:33 pm
and i know we beat this drum pretty much every time we talk about inflation. but the bad content, it's all transitory but we keep hearing warnings that it could. we could see high in place for that least the next 6 months, while goldman sachs issue to note on sunday thing a place. it's going to get worse before gets better. where do you see it? how did it? well, i never took my newsletter, but just let me tell you what i said to thousands of people yesterday, which is that when we had low inflation, there was a whole bunch of reasons why we had low inflation. and one was we had a lot of people to work for. second was of course we had e commerce taking prices down, making more competition. we had the go baby go fracking, you know let's, let's drill a 1000 wells a week. even though we didn't know whether we're going to make any money, everything was going right. well now, brett, everything has turned sideways or in reverse. and the fed, as measured by the, the, the fed features interest rate futures. we were looking for
11:34 pm
a rate hikes in 2023. now we have at least 2 rate hikes. one started in july, probably one in december, and then september perhaps 3 because the genie is out of the bottle. the fed knows it now want to panic, but i'd be prepared to keep our values inside the fed room right now because we have sticky inflation. every part of the inflation curve. prices are higher, the band is higher, so we have poor push inflation. and with him puts you plated, i've never seen it before, and i've been doing this a long time and toe, but i wanted to clarify something about in place. and because i, i respect your genius here on the program, but the reality is we are the prices go up, the inflation rate will eventually come down. but will we ever see those prices actually come down for consumers or is this kind of going to be once we hit that top and we start to level off, is that just the way of life from now on? well, look at in the longer run, you know, the beauty of capitalism is that if,
11:35 pm
if i can make something cheaper than somebody else can, i'm going to get it out of the market. i'm and again, market share. so yeah, let's take all the industries together. but price inflation, you know, when we were starting this, it was, oh, got rental cars or used cars or, you know, a parallel to china. prices have gone up, but it was not systemic. now it is systemic. and unfortunately, the way that you crush inflation is you raise interest rate still point that you take the marginal demand out of the out of the, you know, at cars, home prices go up. the hallmark just go up yada, yada, yada. were not there yet, but, but if we're going to start rate him, remember rate there at 0. look at the wage heights. we have 8 percent, you know, 60 percent weight type, but now there is 0 because of the inflation cost, the higher prices to buy food and clothing and water and boom and everything else. so we've lost the wage heights. that's going to people too who are selling products,
11:36 pm
who are paying a lot more to put their products out. so they're not making anybody, you know, any more money we so it's going to take years, not months. and you know, the risk here is that if i own a tech stock, it sells for 50 times it's revenues and makes very little profit. and all of a sudden i got a discount. those. those earnings by 2 or 3 percent. that means those stocks are coming down to and now i want to go to you and you mentioned the chinese producer prices that we talked about there at the top of the show. i mean, is that causing this ripple effect into the u. s. with, as we're so reliant on these chinese manufacturing as well. well, it's one of the components brand, but remember, even if they produce the stuff they can't get it to their customers because of the supply chain delays. and you know, we said this before, when you think about a supply chain, one taken out, armor slows everything down. and right now the chicken, the armor is as they can produce them. they can get the customer if the customer
11:37 pm
can't get them to, then they're going to, the prices of whatever amateur they have on, on hand, are going to go up add. so it becomes a self reinforcing feedback loop. use that term and think about that because that's exactly what we're in right now. is higher price, but gets a higher price. and then you get into a demand issue right now, strangely, as prices go up, we have more demand. why? because we went through the frickin pandemic and you know, people put off buying a lot of things, people put up a lot of services. so we've never had where you had an actual production prices going up and demand still going up. never seen that. i can remember, and that's what so insidious about this type of inflation push. pull, pull, push, and i know we tend to have you on it with your invest your adamant on the program or a lot and bitcoin and hit record highs early, where they just shy of 69000 dollars that the inflation data was released as
11:38 pm
a crypto sector is this kind of real bull run lately. do you see it as a legitimate inflation hedge? well, i would, you know, maybe 5 years ago i would not have, but i think the 2 things you know, we've talked about bitcoin is number one. if you believe in it, you believe in like a religion, and there's $7200000000.00 people connected to the internet, who for a dollar can buy bitcoin. so if you then go to make the 2nd leap, that since there's a fixed amount of bitcoin and an unlimited amount of currency, that it's the true, you know, gold, digital gold, in that case has been pretty well right now. right? so gold is going up. silver's going up, because going up, those are classic inflation. you know, real estate, those are all classic inflation deals. i feel like i back in the 70s. get my goal. i'm buying homes again. we're investing in the home builders because it's changed, man, it's change tobin smith. i know we tried to solve all the world problems and we probably
11:39 pm
didn't do it today, but we put our best effort in gilbert smith, the transformative research. thank you so much. always a pleasure and a follow up to one of the worst ransomware attacks in us history. the us justice department has charge to men accusing them of being involved in a cyber attack in july of this year. that effective as many of $1500.00 clients of technology provider can say at court filings on monday, show your swab basinski, who was arrested in poland last month and your guinea, pollyanna, and were charged with conspiracy to commit fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering along with several other offences, according to the justice department, the 2 were acting as operatives for the hacker group are evil, which was also allegedly involved in the ransomware attack against global meet supplier j b. yes. the charges come in. the united states has made dealing with cyber crime, a huge priority after these 2 high profile situations, as well as the attack on colonial pipeline. joining us our discuss what we've
11:40 pm
learned from these latest charges and some other cybersecurity news of the day is morgan wright, chief security analyst at that no one and former senior advisor, the u. s. state department, anti terrorism, assistant program, morgan, always the pleasure to have you on the program. i want to start with this. i mean, what did we learn from these new charges? did we get any insight into the tactics of how these cyber criminals were actually operating? no, not really, brent. i mean, this is, i don't want to discount this, but this is the equivalent come equivalent of d coming out saying, hey, we just arrested 7 guys for someone to if we got to 8 balls, if we just stop drug trafficking, as we know it in north america, this is not any words near close. they got $6000000.00. that is nothing but a rounding error. and when you look at the amount of money and we're talking to the billions of dollars that has been lost ransomware, so does it strike fear into the heart of other ransomware operators?
11:41 pm
maybe a little bit. but the thing that's more interesting about this is extradition has always been one of the biggest issues you can indict all the people you want. but if you cannot expedite them and bring them back to the united states, nobody wants to come to the united states. pablo escobar learned that nobody wants to come to the united states, l. chapa, learn that well. we've got to start applying that same mentality to ransomware people and the fact that they were been caught committed to ukraine going into poland or some places like that. that means that we're sharing information and intelligence. so that's good, but are we going to stop this? i don't think you're going to stop it because these organizations still operate in places. we can't touch them and somebody will if that i appreciate you coming on and actually given us that straight talk to her as well as maybe this isn't as big as they make it out to be. some analyst pointed out that going after affiliates of these organizations, like the 2 men who have been charged, can be very effective because of their skill set knowledge of the situation, saying it's even better the maybe going after are able themselves again, maybe they're patting themselves on the back, but does that make any sense?
11:42 pm
you know? no, not really cuz guess why this? there are so many affiliates out there. so they got one little branch of a multi branch, you know, organization, all these affiliates could they have some unique skill sets that if they weren't able to apply those, that might slow this thing down. i will tell you, here's, here's what i noticed. i didn't notice that i didn't notice a change at all and the number of rants more tax occurring. so the rest of these guys, what's changed? quite frankly, the answer is nothing, nothing is changed. nothing will change until you can actually take out the organizations or the other thing we have to do. brent is start changing our terminology. we got to quit talking about responding and recovering. and we've got to start talking about investing and technologies that stop and prevent otherwise, you get the equivalent of a fire alarm in your house. it says, congratulations. your house has successfully burned down. i don't need that. what i need is something that stops the fire from occurring in the 1st place, stops the ransomware attacks from happening. that's the only thing we can control
11:43 pm
from a country standpoint, from a critical infrastructure standpoint, is to stop the attack. we will never stop people from wanting to launch the attacks against these and is the answer. they're really money. i mean, when it comes to like a private company, i mean, we know that they're basically doing the bottom line situation where the, there is technology experts who are say, no, this is how much money we need to spend in the company saying, well, we're willing to spend this much and there go okay, well that puts you 5 years behind the hackers. so is that really the issue? you know, it's the mentality. brentley, i actually, i have a meeting coming up with some folks from both sides at the all coming up this weekend and my message to them is going to be the problem. is that the problem? the problem is the way we think about the problem and that's not even what counts the way. the problem is the way our adversaries think about the problem. and that's what we're really behind. we're behind on the way our adversaries think about the problem about how the hackers think about the problem. so if you're going to spend money, spend it on investing in newer technologies that can automate responses to these things. would you rather have the old version of the fire department where they
11:44 pm
ring the bell? 5 guys run out, hop onto a horse drawn carriage and come out and pump the water under your house. or do you want that fire suppression system that automatically detects it? and stops the fire from spreading. that's the mentality we got to get to unfortunately, federal procurement and some traditional procurement is still buying the old stuff . so it's a joke of yesterday's technology tomorrow. we'll solve all our problems. not really on that. and that's what i would say to does that technology exists, it is readily available for, you know, especially critical. and so it does. okay, there you go. now i have a couple of one more point here about are able, before we move on, if we have time here. because the groups involved in these 3 or 3 of these recent high profile hacked, including are evil. and now they were actually shutting down operation shortly. afterwards, you actually believe that or are they just scattering to start under new name? now, gan crab, the one of the most successful rich, more organizations of the world got $3200000000.00 our we're going out of business now. they're back. i mean, this is, you know, all this is, is, this is under new management. they think if they re brand, you take the focus off of the old name, and now we have a new name, but it's the,
11:45 pm
it's again, i go back to drug trafficking organizations. this is similar. sinaloa cartel one dates, medi cartel. the next is the cali cartel. we still have the same problem, it's just under a different name. that's not going to change what happens. you can change all the names you want. we still got a problem with rent some more mortgage, right? i really appreciate you coming on to the delay bear these issues that fortunately it just sounds like we're say no nobody is prepared to handle this. it's going to get worse before it gets better. but i do appreciate your insights at it. you bet brent and time now for a quick break, but when we come back, the last week has been less than stellar. for the world most valuable car company, a test with the he'll, he'll on month we way on. the company's stock will break down. what is happening? investment should be worry. that's going to break here. the numbers of the quote.
11:46 pm
join me every thursday on the alex simon, sure, i'll be speaking to guess what the world politics, sport business, i'm show business. i'll see you then they're starting to say things like, we're gonna do exactly what we've done here at the u. s. government by blowing trillions of dollars on white elephants on boone da goals, and somehow that's going to cure inflation. when of course, it's just going to exacerbate in place and there this is a recipe for, for more inflation. so it's financial literacy mixed with state sponsored
11:47 pm
propaganda over there at the major american networks we're empowering ourselves to be more efficient or quicker with our transactions. we can make mobile payments from our sons. the truth is that every device is a potential entry point for security attack. i think you can, but i went to lunch nationally with anything but only eventually there's malware on thousands, maybe sometimes millions each day. they use the cyber, they use the technology as an extension of traditional crime. artificial intelligence has not many main threat. this is due to the 3 laws of robotics. one of the things that's happening at the minute is cyber implants. right now. i'd be where they're really worried about it. most people, when equally b, you can put
11:48 pm
a chip in my brain. so there has been a lot of progress from the hacker side using ai and using other advanced technologies. there has been on the defensive linemen. a welcome back of it's been a wild couple of days for la scan, the stock of tesla. first, let's talk about test, which saw it's back close down almost 12 percent on tuesday after seo, eli over the weekend proposed selling 10 percent of the shares in the electric vehicle business. as a result of tesla stock dropping, musk himself lost $50000000000.00 in just 2 days. and i want to repeat that $50000000000.00 in just 2 days. it's the biggest to decline in the history of the bloomberg billionaires index and the biggest one day fall after jeff bezos is
11:49 pm
$36000000000.00 plunge, following his divorce for mackenzie scott in 2019. to discuss, let's bring in boom by co host, spend, swan and chris the i. christy, i want to start with you here breakdown for us. what happened to tesla dock and how much tweets have actually impacted that? yes, does i share their down sharply after the result of must twitter poll came out with his followers telling him that yes, he should sell out so much because vocally opposed the entire point to plan to tax capital gain. but he has said that he would abide by the results of a poll, whichever way it goes. so while it kind of looks like he's giving his loyal twiddle, twitter followers a choice, they really didn't have a choice here because must was going to sell one way or another. so i do think it was kind of genius to try to give the people the illusion of choice as if he was beholden to a dom twitter pulled. so no matter what the result of the pole would be, much would have likely started selling millions of shares this quarter,
11:50 pm
given the stock option. he was awarded in 2012 coming to expert. so the gains on those shares total just under $20000000000.00. so in order to exercise them, must cause to pay the income tax on the game since the options are taxed as an employee benefit or compensation. so the total tax bill on his options at the current price would have been about $15000000000.00. and since he had a limited window in which is sel, stock must have like we had to stagger the sales over the next 2 quarters in order to pay that tax bill. so a sale wasn't habitable either way. it just that now he looks like he's the good guy for abiding, with a public opinion poll. unfortunately, for total stock though its reacting as any stock would to an inside or selling a huge block of shares. and the market is now preparing for a flood of new shares to drive the price down. now, bad when it comes to the social media side, a lot of this job seems to be tied to those months tweet that you just pointed out . but how much do between really impact
11:51 pm
a company that actually has so much upside right now? well, i think it impacts it in exactly what you just said. there's one of 2 ways. so either you don't say anything you just are selling and then the price falls even further. i think you would see a much further drop and just fall for sent. if it, all of a sudden the, the founder of tesla begin selling huge numbers of shares and no one really understands why. because look bad. but if it's the same time you've already gone through, and it is a charade, to an extent, you've got the charade of putting together a twitter pole. you've gone to a charade of allowing the people to speak and decide. should i sell? and they're like, yes, sell, all right, i'll do it for you, but you're not doing it for them. you're going to have to do it anyways. so and on some levels, it does stem the tide of fear in the market to say, oh my gosh, why is you, i'm not selling? well, there's this twitter probably doing it because if people told them to that sounds better than i'm exercising options that i have to exercise from a contract that's almost a decade old. so i think there is certainly a way of using social media in this way. look up whether you like him or not and
11:52 pm
who doesn't accept or just based off. but what do you like him or not like? he is a genius when it comes to utilizing social media to either drive the price of crypto currencies and points that he likes to drive the price of tests lead to drive the thought. mean, he is very good at utilizing social media in a way where the fcc can't really do anything. it's not really seen as giving inside information, but he does it just enough to build a loyal following. so i think he played it about as well as he could have chris if you agree with beds assertion there that i mean it would have dropped any way bigger because it would have been like, oh no, the theo of tassel or some wail for that matter it's selling 10 percent of their shares. so would that have happened? had they not done this? absolutely, it would have dropped a lot further because everybody would have known it has to be in must because one, nobody has that many shares to begin with to sell 10 percent of tesla. he is one of the biggest shareholders ever. so he has to be, the de facto will not to mention as a fee of a company. you actually do have to declare every single time you plan on selling it
11:53 pm
. and you do have to start them every single quarter. because as we said, you have limited windows and weeks in order to sell, you can sell them a form or earning calls, etc, because that would be considered market manipulation. so because of that, now people actually have a reason, and that's the thing. people like having reasons for why a some x y, z name or crypto current. these either going up or down uncertainty is the biggest fear in the market when the market doesn't know what's going on when it doesn't have any explanation for whatever movement. that's when people have fear and panic, and that's when you have a lot of volatility in the market. but when you do have something to point the finger to such as this twitter pulled, that looks like all the people actually had some sort of say or opinion to make a billing or do their bidding. that's actually very powerful. so i agree, even though not the biggest fan of month, i agree that this move on, his part was absolute genius because it paint him as the good guy. he's doing what the people want him to do. he's doing it for the people, apparently not for himself in order to fell out of a huge chunk in order to exercises, even,
11:54 pm
even though he knew for himself. of course, christy, do you feel like i mean with this situation? obviously people on the top and were just trying to get out with as much money as they could, knowing that this would eventually happen. so will that stock will eventually rebound anyway, after all of this plays out, correct? i think the stock will rebound, but let's not forget that. tesla is a big momentum name. and the reason why it's a big momentum name is because a law must, has post themselves as a figure head of this entire company was 10 percent of his shares. it's not that much, it still means that he is less vested in the company, so i don't think it diminishes him in any respect from tulsa. but i do think that as time goes on, if he starts showing more and more shared people will start getting the image at o. tesla is no longer the baby may be focusing more towards space acts and he no longer becomes that influential. because let's face it, we're actually valuing tesla based on the actual market share based on sales of actual cars. it's not the, it's not worth that much. there's no way the stock should be this high. so a lot of this is because
11:55 pm
a cult momentum in the name of the law must that propels the name. i oftentimes good question, the idea that tesla is the most valuable company or car company worldwide. when they sell, you know, a fraction of the car, say toyota does band before we go mosque. recently tweeted that he would prefer to stay out of politics, but his lobbying efforts and tweet indicate that may not be the case. i have about 45 seconds left for you. yeah, i mean, you, i'm up is not interested in politics. he's actually pretty political, but he is. so, is he's not partisan and i think you have to separate those 2 things. you must kids lobbying the i think $2000000.00 is what they spent the last year between tesla and states x, which is a lot of money. but at the same time, it's not a lot of money in comparison to how much money they that company actually makes. as a result of government policy, we talk about tesla and the value it has its real value comes from either being able to get tax incentives and being able to get government money or, or government programs that are driving everyone towards that. that's the real value of it, but i do think that, you know,
11:56 pm
for his part is pretty non partisan. he's an equal opportunity offender in many ways. he gives to both sides. he criticizes both sides. i think what he wants is to be able to lean into politics when it's convenient for him. but he also doesn't want to draw the eyer of government too much, which he seems to be on one hand draw personally. but again, all of his companies benefit magnanimously as a result of government intervention and government taxpayer dollars. that's why he is the richest man in the world. i was gonna say it seems like he doesn't want to pay taxes that he definitely want to make sure space x tesla is involved in whatever government contracts or, and they can get boom by spend swan christy. i thank you both and finally made your acquisition in the world of entertainment. as iconic director peter jackson is selling most of his digital effects to the weather, to unity for $1600000000.00. now, unity makes one of the most popular game engines for video game development. and where does technology has been used in blockbuster films,
