[000:00:00;00] a this is boom, bought one business show you care to fordham it. i'm bred to bore in washington coming up after a long tug of war law makers on capitol hill path, a 1.2 trillion dollar infrastructure bill late last week. but the devil is in the details as the bill introduces new taxes on crypto trade. we'll discuss what the major means for investors. plus global markets are mixed. this week will go over what's been moving market in some of the world's most important economy. and over in scotland, the u. s. in china now they joined agreement, reached at the cap, $26.00 climate summit with both country pledging, clamped down on greenhouse gases. we'll talk shop about the latest emissions deal between the 2 super power lot to get to get the work. and we leave the program with
5:31 am
the state of crypto currency regulation in the united states in an effort to pay for the recently passed $1.00 trillion dollar infrastructure bill. lawmakers have included new tax requirements on crypto currency. the new rules attempt to limit tax evasion. in crypto currency by placing new tax reporting rules that apply to digital assets like crypto and nf t's in trying to sell the need for tax to tax these assets in 2018. the iris actually pointed to research that showed the tax gap on crypto related capital gains was roughly $11500000000.00 in the year of 2017 saying it probably widened quite a bit since that a couple of the key points in the bill include brokers needing to report transactions of digital currency, these brokers would also have to report the names and addresses of their customers . another provision would require businesses and crypto exchanges to report when they have received more than $10000.00 in crypto crypto advocates have long been critical of calls for reporting, as they say,
5:32 am
defeat the purpose of the centralized currency, which gives some sort of anonymity. so is this a step in the right direction for an industry that has wrestled with the idea of taxation and regulation? joining about the just to check that for john carlo. he's a former chair of the commodity futures trading commission and author of crypto dad . the fight for the future of money chairman, it's a pleasure to have you back on the program. we really appreciate you coming on to talk about these important issues. so what is that take away from this tax provision in the infrastructure bill? is that the right move, looking at taxing at assets rather than broader regulation on actual use of crypto bred. great to be back with you in great to give you the take away and here's what it is. and that is that congress has now la last, after many requests identified its priority for crypto. you know, the industry, it's a $33.00 industry. now we've been asking congress to step in and identify the national
5:33 am
policy. and here it is. that policy is taxi years taxing crypto. we've got crumbling infrastructure in this country. there's no question about it. crumbling roads quote, crumbling bridges in congress and tend to go after it by amongst other methods taxing the crypto industry. but you know, in doing so what it's basically doing is taking an industry that potentially provides the solution for another, another set of crumbling infrastructures. and that's an or financial system. but it's too expensive to slow and, and to exclusive. and here's a new innovation that could possibly modernize that, and congress is going to get a place taxes on it. so as congress unfortunately has done to operate in the past, it's once again more mortgaging the future to pay for political shortcomings. but political failures of the past, right and term, i mean, i guess it raises the question to basically what you're saying is if you're doing an infrastructure bill, why not build crypto infrastructure within that bill,
5:34 am
maybe further regulate it and then you could tax it as well along. busy with that it, wouldn't that be the better out? well, absolutely. we do need congress to step up and identify a national policy for crypto and that policy has got to be balanced and comprehensive. yes, it's about appropriate tax compliance, not overbroad, not over invasive as this bill is proper tax policy. we but we also have a national interest in modernizing our financial system, which is explained is too expensive, too slow and way too exclusive. we know that many americans and people around the globe are under, under too little access to the system as it is, we can do better. we have a national policy, of course, in consumer an investor protection, which is a big role that the fcc place. but we also have a role, a national interest in making sure that these markets are well balanced,
5:35 am
deep liquid and free affordability elation which is the mandate of my former agency . and if we're lucky to make sure that the price is set in dollars in the us market, as it is for so many of the world's major commodities, which is one of the underpinnings of the us dollar. so our, or the national interest in crypto is broad and multifaceted, fashion that number for this, this bill only focuses on one that is getting as much of cash out of it or taxes out of it as you can well, right? because of course, the question always becomes when you pass any sort of huge, $1.00 trillion dollar bill, somebody's going to ask you, how do we pay for it? and they said, well, we don't like crypto as it is. why don't we just tack this and figure it out? but i guess the question to the point i was trying to make there, at the end of the intro there, which is that, you know, a lot of critics are going to say this goes against the decentralized nature of crypto. can you have proper reporting? can you have proper taxation? can you have proper regulation and still keep the anonymity decentralized nature of
5:36 am
crypto currency? yes, you can, is the answer to that, you know, this industry is not opposed to taxation. it is not designed to to be taxed ation. now some people may try to use it, but some people try to use cash to avoid taxation use a lot of means the, the challenge is going to be regulators and policy makers. central bankers. think beyond the current rep or the current methodology that we use. our financial system or methodology is a methodology that identifies identity 1st, even before the transaction takes place and we gather norma about information. but if you think about the tokenized world, when you go to buy a sandwich with a $10.00 bill, you don't have to tell them who you are, where you bank, how much money's in your bank. or they need to do is verify the token. and this new technology is based upon that notion of verification of tokens, but you still can have
5:37 am
a viable taxation system in tokenize money as we do with cash. there are other ways to get a tax avoidance. we just gotta, gotta get to the point where regulators policy makers to think beyond the status quo and new methodologies of, of block chain based pattern recognition, where it's not anonymous, sued, anonymous identity can be discovered as law enforcement is rapidly learning about this technology actually provides pretty good tools for kick, for counter re criminal behavior is just going to take some new wise and some new way of thinking and some new, a greater technological learning at some of our regulatory and central banking agencies. right. and i mean, we know we've talked about this on the program many times before, which is the, you know, obviously we talk about the anonymity but the fact is the block chain tracks everything. it's the immutable ledger as we tend to call it. and by that you can track things going from wall to wall it. so like you said, if you're actually following along, you know, you might have to do a little bit of due diligence, but you probably get there in the end. now you also wrote an article earlier this
5:38 am
year, calling for self regulation and crypto, which you also discussing your new book. now is some on capitol hill have of course the crypto currency is too much of a wild west to police itself. why is that not true? it's not true because so regulation works in our most successful marketplace. we have self regulation in our equity markets, going back to when the new york stock exchange was created in the, in the 18th century. we've got self regulation in our, in our world, leading commodity futures market, going back to the 1850s long before the fcc long before the c a p c came around on the washington. see, we've got, we've had self regulation and we continue to have self regulation today in our markets, and it works very well. so my answer to those who say, well, let's not have self regulation a crypto. and i, my answer is, well, what, what is it about a, we're leading equity markets? what is it about our world leading derivative markets, that where self regulation is somehow down? why wouldn't we, in fact,
5:39 am
if you or an advocate for bringing this industry into well regulated environments, why when you advocate for self regulation, alongside federal regulation, as the practice in our most successful world leading workers lawyer and i got one more point i want to head on because there's also talk about the future of the federal reserve recently and central bank digital currencies could be a big winner if layer brainard were to actually be nominated over current fed chair jerome pal. if the fed were to have someone in place who actually sees the importance of c, b c's, would this be a step in the right direction? well, i have to beg the different with you a little bit because i've had the honor of working with both a jerome pow lael brainer during my time in washington. both of them i think would make a per chairs and both of them get the challenge of, of digital money in case we're talking about a digital dollar or central bank digital currency. i've actually had the pleasure
5:40 am
talk about our digital dollar project with both cheer pal and governor brader and they both get it. governor brader in particular, gable, a really very thoughtful speech not too long ago, where she said that the emergence of such a digital currency is so fun to mental. she can almost not rep or head around the united states being participate in this area. and you're right, the fact that matter is the united states is not what i would call in the 1st hello ton of writers. in this, in this movement toward the digital currency, where, somewhere in the middle of the pack. and it's the world's most important reserve currency. i long been an advocate for the united states to a basis, exploration of central bank digital currency. and i believe that the right way to advance it is in partnership with the private sector. at the end of the day, money is as much a social construct as it is a government construct. and we've got to make sure that social values of privacy and economic liberty are enshrined in the digital future of money. pay quacks from

5:50 am
show business. i'll see you then 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 and smash lee 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 many cyber implants right now, i'd be where is it really worried about it? most people, when equally b, you can put a chip in my brain. so there has been a lot of progress from the hacker side using ai and using other advanced
5:51 am
technologies. there has been on the defensive lighten her there will go back over in scotland. the united states and china have struck an agreement to curb their respective greenhouse gas emissions. the joint declaration was a product of deliberate deliberations at the u. s. cap. 26 climate conference in glasgow . the 2 countries account for more than a 3rd of the world's annual carbon footprint, and despite the 2 superpowers remaining at odds over a plethora of issues, the u. s. in china are now pledging to collaborate on initiatives to propel the 2 countries towards emissions targets that were originally set in by the paras agreement in 2015. did. now you are since the beginning of the year abiding by the direction of our 2 president incognito our teams have been maintaining 1st dialogues. joe had rumbled during virtual meetings and met each other in shanghai
5:52 am
in genes on london, san glasgow jewel on to the combined efforts of both, reached an agreement on the declaration. and i'm pleased to announce that we will work together to limit methane, methane emissions, greenhouse gas, up to 80 times more destructive, more potent than c o 2. so what does this mean for us china relations moving forward? well, the break it all down, let's bring into by co host christy. christy. what's the take away from this agreement between china and the united states? what are you seeing here? well, the takeaway is that the 2 biggest economic super powers are actually putting aside . there are other issues to tackle this climate change problem at hand. so together china in the us account for about 40 percent of the world's annual carbon output. so this is quite a big deal. this resolution allows china and the u. s. to declare stuffs and actions on the path toward the emissions reductions and limitations. so now in
5:53 am
china and the u. s. 6 would share policy and technology and new targets for 2035. so while everything sounds great and all the pledge still lack specificity, the new agreement itself is not enough to meet the 1.5 degrees celsius goal of the parents agreement. but it is a good starting point for mutual accountability and action. and much of the language in the agreement however still remains unqualified. so for instance, china pledge to draw down as coal consumption and to quote, make best efforts to accelerate this work. so it is somewhat ambiguous and you don't know how much china means it and it's going to be invested in it. how are the fact that china was willing to come to the table and cooperate is still a very big step. it is the 1st time the chinese government has place to address this issue. and some analysts are hopeful that this will make a big impact because china does have a history of outperforming its own goals. increasingly, when it comes to china, they're obviously the proposal to phase out cold worldwide. now,
5:54 am
how does that affect such a nation? that is so reliant on call like china, while much as this has already been expected in the coal industry, so it doesn't come as much of a shock to it. of course, it will be absolutely impossible to phase out completely within the next few decades, as it is the cheapest source of fuel to power so many. however, there are steps that china is already taking it or to card their dependence on calls. so right now, for example, china is no longer funding the construction of new coal fired power plants overseas . previously, china has support a coal projects in developing countries including indonesia and bangladesh, and has an under heavy diplomatic pressure to put an end to the financing. so it is taking baby steps, the cheap money for overseas projects big it has closed. however, china is still financing coal projects on its own home turf. so i think it is wise of china to be taking these smaller, incremental steps here because it's like you're trying to turn around the pe tannic
5:55 am
. you can't veer directions easily and if you try things they're going to get really choppy for a bit as the entire coal dependent economy struggles for equilibrium. so while many critics has said that china's targets are not ambitious enough, as china pledge that it would achieve a peak in carbon dioxide emissions before 2030 and carbon neutrality before 2060, it is still more realistic than some of the u. s. numbers in which the u. s. wants to just cut emissions by half by 2030. so i think the coal industry has had a fair head start warning that change is coming to the industry and that this will prevent a bigger shake out in the market because they will have ample time to prepare and pivot. now with this global energy crisis going on, that we've talked so much about and the need for fossil fuels right now, does it take away from the importance of it when the u. s. is out there calling for opec to increase the oil output? i'm talking more so about the overall conference when we're talking about all of these promises. it does take away a lot from, as we've been talking about the for the past couple of weeks,
5:56 am
it almost makes us sound hypocritical because the u. s. that arbitrary timelines and deadlines for shifting the countries over to green energy. however, we've seen green tech is not mature yet to handle this much demand. so the only thing the u. s. is doing is shifting and exporting pollution. pretty much the same thing. it's done with the rare earth lining minerals industry. they just export it all of that pollution over to china while importing the minerals themselves. and in this case, it's exporting emissions and drilling over to the middle east and importing oil. but the thing is emissions is emissions no matter where it's generated. the only thing is that now these emissions aren't on the u. s. as carbon balance sheets. so on paper, it looks good, even though it is still responsible for consuming the end product fuel. so it's very hypocritical to say the least and it totally undermines the u. s. as call for green energy, because what it's actually doing is putting this glaring spotlight on green tech
5:57 am
and showing the world just how new and unreliable and not self sustaining. the current state of green tech is because it fil is truly effective and cost efficient . the market will have absolutely no problem switching over boom bus co host christie. i thank you so much for break it all down for today. thank you and talk about a nightmare before christmas. now it's going to be even harder to get your hands on a playstation 5 amid the global chip shortage sonia. now that will be cutting down production due to components and logistic constraints instead of its goal of pretty things. 16000000 playstation 5 units, it's now slashing that number to 15000000. the shortage has been affecting the technology industry for more than a year now with other game companies such as microsoft and intend to also feeling the sting. and let me tell you something as somebody who is you follow the show. you know, i'm a bit of a game or myself, i hear it all the time about how hard it is to get one of these new counsels amid
5:58 am
the semi conductor shorted them and production issues and supply chain constraints . it's just crazy. and that's it for this time you catch boom bust on demand on the portable tv app available on smartphones and tablets. google play and the apple app store by searching portable tv. portable tv can also be downloaded on samsung smart tv. the roku devices are simply go to portable that tv will scenic, that we're allowing ourselves to be more efficient for quicker with that transactions. but with that comes a trade off. every device is a potential entry point for security attack. any machine can be here. it's an extension of traditional time. the defenders have always been one step behind the attackers with there's one comes option in the offering. it's not
5:59 am
a matter of. if it happens, it's a matter of went well and i make no certainly no borders line to nationalities. and you parish as a merge we don't have a charity. we don't to look back seen whole world needs to take action and be ready . people are judgment. 2 common crisis with we can do better, we should be better. everyone is contributing each in their own way. but we also know that this crisis will not go on forever. the challenge is great, the response has been massive. so many good people are helping us. it makes us feel very proud that we are in it together
