a16z Podcast: Of Policy, Capital, and the Startup Ecosystem  

How to think about business policy and top-of-mind issues for the tech industry, given a new president? From what agencies matter for startups and VC to what the first 100 days (and next two years!) look like, a16z managing partner Scott Kupor and president and CEO of the National Venture Capital Association (NVCA) Bobby Franklin share what happens between elections and when the reality of the Washington process sets in post-inauguration. What are some of the discussions that are happening around taxation, special stock exchanges for earlier-stage/ smaller companies, and what was the JOBS Act again? Believe it or not, seemingly wonky details like these incent behavior -- for better or worse, with intended and unintended consequences -- and in this episode of the a16z Podcast, we discuss all this and more. (Company) size does matter, after all.

Donald Trump Says He'll Put America First  

Making his inauguration speech, the 45th President of the United States vowed to put America first. Donald Trump's address was relatively short, big on patriotism yet somewhat bleak, painting a picture of a nation in the grip of crime, drugs, unemployment and dereliction. He pledged to bring about huge change. We ask two Republican party insiders how likely that is and how he intends to achieve it. Plus a former Prime Minister of Finland helps us assess the geopolitical implications for Europe, and the Executive Director of America's largest grassroots environmental organisation discusses the new administration's energy policy. In other news, the Gambia's defeated leader Yahya Jammeh says he has decided to relinquish power, after hours of talks with regional leaders and the threat by a regional military force to make him leave. We ask an expert from the Chatham House Africa programme if the country and the region can quickly put this damaging episode behind it. Molly Wood from Marketplace radio tells us about a new film exploring the contentious beginnings of the McDonalds chain of restaurants. Jon Bithrey is joined by two guests on opposite sides of the Pacific - business columnist and commentator Diane Brady in New York and Clive Hunton of ABC News Radio in Australia's capital Canberra.

Military Moves To End The Gambia Crisis  

The political crisis in the Gambia continues. Senegalese forces are now in the country, backed by the UN and ECOWAS, and President Jammeh still refuses to hand over the presidency to the incumbent, Adama Barrow. There is a new deadline for mediation but Colin Freeman, a Daily Telegraph reporter in the capital, tells us it is only a matter of time before he is removed by force. Former Goldman Sachs banker Steve Mnuchin has had his Senate confirmation hearing for Treasury Secretary. Alan Rappeport, Economic Policy reporter at the New York Times, assesses the performance. Donald Trump has to begin the difficult process of uniting the country with his inauguration speech. We ask Michael Johns, a former speech writer for George Bush Senior how he would approach the task. Also, the inauguration means big business, with all sorts of merchandise on sale to the huge crowds. Abha Bhattaral of the Washington Post tells us about the hot items. Roger Hearing is joined from New York by Kara Alaimo, Assistant Professor at Hofstra University and Author of "Pitch, Tweet, or Engage on the Street." and from Hong Kong by Simon Littlewood, President of AC Growth Delivered.

Burundi: Fear and Exile  

When Burundi’s President Pierre Nkurunziza announced he was running for a controversial third mandate in April 2015, he sparked a major crisis and many demonstrations. Since then, hundreds of people have been killed and more than 300,000 Burundians have fled to neighbouring countries. Our reporters, Nicolas Germain and Julie Dungelhoeff, despite a few visa problems, met Burundian refugees in Uganda and Tanzania. If we had watched this scene in a film, we would have thought the screenwriter was pushing it a bit. Yet this is really what happened. Our plane was moving on the runway of Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport. Destination Kigali, the Rwandan capital. We were just about to put our phones on airplane mode. That’s precisely when the phone rang. "I’m from the Rwandan embassy. I’m calling you to tell you that your visas have been cancelled." "Sir, that’s impossible. We’re on the plane. We’re about to take off." "I repeat, your visas have been cancelled. Get off the plane, you won’t be able to enter Rwanda, immigration services have been warned." End of conversation. A few seconds later the plane takes off. So we got off at the stopover in Istanbul. A month after this incident, the Rwandan embassy has yet to give us an explanation for this dramatic U-turn. This decision can only reinforce the suspicions of UN experts who allege Rwanda is recruiting Burundian rebels in refugee camps. Indeed, we had said we were working on the crisis in Burundi and its consequences: more than 300,000 refugees are now living in neighbouring countries including Rwanda. Burundi refused to give us a visa. Rwanda, as we just saw, did the same. So we went to Uganda, and Tanzania - which is the country which hosts the most Burundian refugees. In April 2015, President Pierre Nkurunziza, who had been in power for a decade, announced he was running for a contentious third mandate. For several weeks afterwards, thousands took to the streets to protest. A violent repression ensued. In the months that followed, major figures from both the ruling party and the opposition were shot dead. During that time, several hundred people were killed, most of them opposition supporters, and there was a mass exodus of Burundians. They cross the border with just one bag on their head We arrive in Tanzania, in the Kigoma region. Currently there are three Burundian refugee camps in the country. But nearly two years after the start of the crisis, some 10,000 Burundians still arrive here every month. We see some early one morning. They cross the border with just one bag on their head, carrying very young children. They have walked for hours and are absolutely exhausted. They say they’ve been threatened by the Imbonerakure, the ruling party’s youth league – a “militia” according to the UN. “They tell us to leave otherwise they’ll slaughter us!” says one refugee. Burundi is a small country but very populous, and the flight of refugees is a bonus for those who then seize their plots of land. Burundi refused to give us a visa, but the president’s main advisor, Willy Nyamitwe, answered our questions via a journalist based in Bujumbura. This is what he had to say about the Imbonerakure: “Those who are outside the country say they were arrested at nighttime by the Imbonerakure, it’s absolutely not true. I’m a former Imbonerakure, the president is a former Imbonerakure. All the hopes of the Burundian people today depend on the solidity, bravery and patriotism of the Imbonerakure. 'They beat us like we were animals' We then head for Kampala, the Ugandan capital. A 20-hour drive on both tarmac and dirt tracks. Only one puncture. Later, two trucks got bogged down, blocked the road, and we had to spend the night in the car… The road follows the borders of Burundi and Rwanda. The Great Lakes region is undoubtedly one of the most stunning in Africa. Those who have fled to Kampala, rather than Rwanda which is closer, say it’s because life is cheaper than in Kigali and they feel freer here. In the Ugandan capital, we meet young men who were tortured by the regime in Bujumbura. In the city centre, there’s a rooftop bar where Burundian refugees like to gather. One man tells us what he had to endure. “There was a large red container, they put us in it, then they threw tear gas inside to make us suffer. Then they closed the container. We suffered inside it all night. We weren’t considered as human beings, they beat us like we were animals.” A few days later he managed to escape to Uganda. UN warns of genocide The next day, in another Burundian bar, we met two young soldiers who had fled. They were studying to become part of the army’s elite, but as Tutsis they felt increasingly threatened. The authorities asked them who they were really working for. There were more and mor
