    A.I., The Real Jobs Numbers, and Crime – w/ John Lott

    A.I., The Real Jobs Numbers, and Crime – w/ John Lott

    On Today’s Episode – 
    Mark and John dive right in and start us off by talking some of Biden’s history of lying.  With his possible cognitive decline along with major media outlets so trying to protect him, Biden is one of the weakest candidates for President of all time.  
    We jump over to jobs, and what are the true numbers.  People feel like their wages are down, but the Biden Administration keeps saying wages are up, but they are NOT up against the record inflation.  
    The government puts all these regulations on, which causes operating costs to go up, or they make businesses responsible for functions that are a government function.  When you look at Biden, Warren, or Sanders – they spend all day talking about tax the rich.  They never tell us what a “fair share” is, nor do they talk about 1% paying 40% of the budget.  
    Dr. John R. Lott, Jr. the president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, is an economist and a world-recognized expert on guns and crime. During the Trump administration, he served as the Senior Advisor for Research and Statistics in the U.S. Department of Justice. Lott has held research or teaching positions at various academic institutions including the University of Chicago, Yale University, the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, Stanford University, UCLA, and Rice University, and was the chief economist at the United States Sentencing Commission during 1988-1989. He holds a Ph.D. in economics from UCLA.

Nobel laureate Milton Friedman noted: “John Lott has few equals as a perceptive analyst of controversial public policy issues.”

Lott is a prolific author for both academic and popular publications. He has published over 100 articles in peer-reviewed academic journals and written ten books, including “More Guns, Less Crime,” “The Bias Against Guns,” and “Gun Control Myths.”

    Tune in for more

    Chris Voss 
    CEO, Founder, Instructor, and Keynote Speaker
    Chris used his many years of experience in international crises and high-stakes negotiations to develop a unique program that applies globally proven techniques to the business world.
    Prior to 2008, Chris was the lead international kidnapping negotiator for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), as well as the FBI’s hostage negotiation representative for the National Security Council’s Hostage Working Group. During his career, he also represented the U.S. government as an expert in kidnapping at two international conferences sponsored by the G8.
    Before becoming the FBI's lead international kidnapping negotiator, Christopher served as the lead Crisis Negotiator for the New York City division of the FBI. Chris was a member of the New York City Joint Terrorist Task Force for 14 years. He was the case agent on TERRSTOP (Omar Abdel-Rahman/"The Blind Sheikh" case) and the TWA Flight 800 catastrophe. He also negotiated the surrender of the first hostage taker to give up in the Chase Manhattan Bank robbery.
    During Chris’s 24-year tenure with the Bureau, he was trained in the art of negotiation by not only the FBI, but also Scotland Yard and Harvard Law School. He is also a recipient of the Attorney General’s Award for Excellence in Law Enforcement and the FBI Agents Association Award for Distinguished and Exemplary Service.
    Chris has taught business negotiation in MBA programs as an adjunct professor at the University of Southern California Marshall School of Business, and at Georgetown University McDonough School of Business. He also taught business negotiation at Harvard University and guest lectured at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, the IMD Business School in Lausanne, Switzerland, and the Goethe Business School in Frankfurt, Germany.
    Since 2009, Chris has also worked with Insite Security as their Managing Director of the Kidnapping Resolution Practice.

    Chris's New Book 
    Empathy and Understanding In Business
    In the business times of yesteryear, many did not believe that empathy and understanding mixed well with sound business decisions. However, with the more recent breed of entrepreneurs, many have increasingly recognized that successful and long-lasting relationships depend on using both empathy and understanding to build a solid foundation.
    The master of negotiation and Celebrity Expert(R) in this book, Chris Voss, reminds us that entrepreneurs want lasting relationships that build trust and clientele. He questions if anyone associates empathy with enterprise and entrepreneurism, and states that the qualities of trust and lasting relationships come out of understanding and respect for each other. In short, as stated by Brené Brown, "Empathy fuels connection."
    To learn more about negotiation and how the Celebrity Experts(R) herein have improved their negotiating skills, it would be beneficial to read about their accomplishments. They have honed their skills and can be great mentors. They will tell you what worked for them and what did not - saving you time, energy and cost of 'reinventing the wheel' - the path to success - in negotiating.

    Contra TikTok Paranoiacs– w/ Charles Sauer

    Contra TikTok Paranoiacs– w/ Charles Sauer

    On Today’s Episode – 
    Mark dives right in with our guest Charles Sauer. They talk similar likes as far as authors go and give the listeners some options for good reads. We move to operating systems for economies. We get a clear definition of capitalism and how it was named by it’s enemies, and how it can actually work.
    We move to TikTok, and the why’s and how’s of it. Mark goes all PhD. Into the science about how algorithms work and how it is very similar to how slot machines work. Dopamine hits matter, and social media knows it.  
    We wrap things up with a conversation on economics and the Biden budget. Mark and Charles explain how our current economy and budget’s truths can be manipulated by politicians and news outlets when they explain things like “we created a bunch of jobs”.

Last show

Mark, I really appreciated this show. My wife has stage 4 cancer and is on an experimental drug. It is showing improvement on reducing the size of the cancer cells.

I took NAC during 2020 until till it became difficult to get. And took Melatonin for sleeping, not knowing about the additional benefits. Mistletoe is a new thing that we will look into. We are looking for anything that will help. I agree with you that the gov. and Medicare are not up and up with what is right.

If you can, please put more information on the show notes and links to follow up on.

Thank you for this podcast. I am forcing my wife to listen to it.

God Bless
