    Energy Boost: Chevron CEO & U.S. Labor 12/02/22

    Energy Boost: Chevron CEO & U.S. Labor 12/02/22

    The U.S. economy added 263,000 jobs in November, surpassing estimates despite the Federal Reserve’s aggressive efforts to curb inflation. Average hourly earnings also rose month-over-month, which is good news for workers, but bad news for the Fed’s plan to slow interest rate hikes. Ahead of OPEC+ meeting this weekend and the EU’s looming ban on Russian oil imports, Chevron CEO Michael Wirth discusses the global energy landscape, Chevron’s new license to boost Venezuelan oil production, and working with the Biden administration on energy goals. The Senate voted to pass a labor deal, averting a nationwide railroad worker strike but failing to secure the workers the guaranteed paid sick leave that their unions were hoping for. Plus, Kanye West is suspended from Twitter, and Floridian lawmakers are mending fences with Disney.

    FTX Founder Sam Bankman-Fried: “I’ve had a bad month” 12/01/22

    FTX Founder Sam Bankman-Fried: “I’ve had a bad month” 12/01/22

    In his first public appearance since the collapse of the crypto exchange he founded, disgraced former FTX head Sam Bankman-Fried spoke to Andrew Ross Sorkin at The New York Times DealBook Summit. Andrew recaps the highlights of his extended conversation with the former “crypto king” with Joe Kernen and Becky Quick, and considers whether his remorse for the damage he’s caused is genuine. In a remarkably candid conversation, Bankman-Fried admits to messing up, and attempts to clear the air on what went wrong at his crypto exchange. More than 100,000 railroad workers seeking guaranteed paid sick leave are on the brink of a strike, and the unions, freight carriers, and US government are working on an agreement to avert a crisis. U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg explains why a railroad shutdown could spell a logistical disaster for the country, ahead of the Senate’s vote on a rail labor deal. Plus, Fed Chair Jay Powell has signaled that a slowdown to rate hikes might start soon! CNBC’s Steve Liesman parses through the Fed speak and what it means for inflation nationwide.

    Zero-Covid’s Tipping Point: Unrest Across China 11/28/22

    Protesters across China are risking their own safety and freedom to push back against President Xi Jinping and his ‘zero-covid’ policy. CNBC’s Beijing Bureau Chief Eunice Yoon reports from Beijing, one of the country’s many locations of unrest, on the activist risks, the student-strong upheaval, and how watching the World Cup pushed many Chinese citizens to speak out. Global event-driven investor Kyle Bass, CIO of Hayman Capital Management, discusses the unrest and its impact on companies caught in the thick of it–like Apple. Plus, in the wake of Thanksgiving, airlines suffered some turbulence, and Disney saw mixed results at the box office. Get out your popcorn; the House of Mouse is bracing for Bob (the first) Iger, back in the CEO saddle.

Should be part of your daily routine

Love this podcast - especially as someone who lives on the West Coast and can’t always catch the full show. The podcast’s content and length is perfect. I enjoy the balance of the anchor’s perspectives. Becky’s classy and old-school “just the news” approach is a breath of fresh air in the modern world of journalism.
