Ep. 510, Pride and Prejudice, Part 7of14, by Jane Austen  

Visitors come to Rosings, namely Colonel Fitzwilliam and Mr. Darcy himself. And it seems that it is no accident has brought Mr. Darcy to the environs of Miss Elizabeth Bennet. He is a man with a plan. Jane Austen, today on The Classic Tales Podcast.

Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening.

Today’s show is made possible by those of you who are Classic Tales Podcast Financial Supporters. If you enjoy The Classic Tales Podcast, please become a supporting member at Thank you very, very much!

You may have noticed that there has been a dearth of new audiobooks appearing through the website. The last one that was produced for the website was A Study in Scarlet, which came out last May. The reason for this lag is that I can no longer afford to produce these “bonus” audiobooks out of my own pocket. You see, every episode of The Classic Tales Podcast is downloaded or streamed over 16,000 times in the course of a month. Yet, I have just over 300 monthly financial subscribers. This is great, and it pays the podcast and website bills and a little more, but it’s far from the funding required to produce a new audiobook every month.

Now, I would rather go forward than go back. If we get more supporting members, we can produce more Classic Tales. So I’d like to offer you more incentive to become a monthly supporter of The Classic Tales. Starting in March, there will be a new 4 hour-long portion of a new audiobook that will be available to subscribers only, in addition to The Classic Tales Podcast. This line of additional subscribers-only content will be called the Enchiridion. Every month, subscribers will get an email with a link to approximately 4 hours of additional Classic Tales content. What titles will be available through The Enchiridion? We will start with Alan Quatermain, the sequel to King Solomon’s Mines. From there, we have an entire catalogue of fantastic titles in the queue, including London’s The Sea Wolf, Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Sabatini’s Scaramouche and many, many more.

And so now, if you become a monthly supporter, not only do you ensure the future of The Classic Tales Podcast,          but also you get a monthly coupon code AND 4 hours of a new audiobook – every month. And if enough people become supporters, we can do the longer titles again!

There’s never been a better time to become a supporter of The Classic Tales Podcast. Become a member at Again, thank you for your support.

And now, Pride and Prejudice, Part 7 of 14, by Jane Austen

532 - The State Of Creativity with Shane Valentino, Paco De Leon, and Dave Kloc  

The State Of Creativity is the latest AID Live from Los Angeles installment where Mark has brought together three creative professionals from different walks of life to discuss where we are and where things will be going. It seems like current events will continually raise the stakes on democracy with issues that demand our attention and understanding and that can really take its toll on  most of us. Shane Valentino comes to us from the world of film, Paco De Leon has an unshakeable grasp on finance, and Dave Kloc brings his Andy Richter-ing to new peaks as our guests bring insight, intelligence, and inspiration for anyone's uncertain future in the creative forces. This AID Live is  a motivational boost to stand up, be heard, and carve your niche out of the resources and community you have around you. Whether your already digging the ditch or waiting for the opening you've been searching for, The State Of Creativity is an incredible resource to find your way through a difficult time ahead.

Talking Points

Taking logs to a fire while you resist and relax. Keeping your forearms tight and Dave Kloc's pre printing ritual. The ACLU collab that raised close to $5,000 from a Hissing Booth. Meeting the Madonna of finance and lighting up the internet. Financial literacy and separating bookkeepers from accountants. What's the worst question Paco gets? Bringing accountability back to the masses, pie allocation, and lumpy cash flow.  Saving for the financial rainy days ahead and a helpful firewall to keep you honest. The Anarchy Skills you need and practical advice about your money that you need even more. Seeing past the doom and gloom and picking up some of the shattered pieces. The strategy behind moving to New York and the simultaneous careers that leave you room for better work.  Multiple metrics that keep the dream alive. The zeitgeist (literally) behind the scenes and the positive discourse that came out of the election. Waiting for the face of resistance from Hollywood and the time it takes to find a voice. Giving back to the world and still feeling like an asshole. News resources, the fine line of binging, and fighting the urge to parrot what you've heard. Searching for a different perspective and discovering your empathy. Maintaining motivation in tough times and the pendulum swing between emotion and action. Creating tension and finding the enemy.  Shaming creatives stay out of politics and the dangerous us versus them mentality.  Front of the class and back of the class kids. The many levels art and creativity function at.
44 - Sebastian Mallaby on Alan Greenspan's Legacy  

Sebastian Mallaby is a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and a contributing columnist for the Washington Post. Today, he joins the show to discuss his new book, *The Man Who Knew: the Life and Times of Alan Greenspan,* a biography of the former Fed Chairman. Sebastian describes Greenspan’s humble origins, his rise to power, and his public career that spanned several decades. David and Sebastian discuss the degree to which Greenspan should be praised for the economic stability of the Great Moderation and blamed for the Great Recession. They also chat about Greenspan’s musical talents, his relationship with Ayn Rand, and his reputation as a “ladies man.” David’s blog: Sebastian’s bio: Sebastian’s Washington Post archive: David’s Twitter: @davidbeckworth Sebastian Mallaby: @scmallaby *The Man Who Knew: the Life and Times of Alan Greenspan* by Sebastian Mallaby

Trump-Trudeau Trade Tussle.  

Today Canada's Justin Trudeau is the latest world leader to talk trade with President Donald Trump. As the Prime Minister steps through the White House doors though, will they be trading maple syrup, apple pie, or barbed insults? We hear from Christophe Bondy, an international trade lawyer, based in London, and formerly the Senior Counsel at Canada's Trade Law Bureau. How would Justin Trudeau stand up to an unwelcoming President? Also we visit Sao Paolo, to hear about the growth of the so-called gig economy in Brazil, following the latest economic recession. Is this a good or a bad thing for the economy in Brazil, and is it good for workers? Natalie Razeen is an associate at the London law firm, Russell Cooke. Finally Lucy Kellaway of the Financial Times joins us to consider how people like her get by, when they're considered "difficult". Picture credit: thinkstock

Court Refuses To Reinstate Trump Travel Ban  

Donald Trump was not pleased at the latest US court decision - a finding that the suspension of the travel ban on visitors from seven mainly Muslim countries would continue. What the decision by the panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in California means is that visitors from those countries can proceed as normal. The judges said the U.S. government hadn't pointed to any evidence that anyone from the countries named in the executive order had committed a ``terrorist attack'' in the U.S. They said; `Rather than present evidence to explain the need for the executive order, the government has taken the position that we must not review its decision at all. We disagree'. Reporter Peter Bowes joins us from California. Banking regulation has been one of the areas Donald Trump's supporters in the financial world have been keen for him to get working on - and now we may be in a position to know what is going to change. A leaked memo from the chair of the House of Representatives Financial Services Committee, Jeb Hensarling, sets out the key points. They include weakening the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, scaling back stress tests, and easing the rules for companies looking to raise capital. So what exactly is it about US banking laws, that President Trump doesn't like? We ask US economist Irwin Stelzer. It was supposed to be the Trump effect that was going to save Twitter - the fortunes of the beleaguered social media site were supposed to have been transformed by the way in which the US president had made it his main medium of communication. Surely now new users would be flocking? It hasn't turned out that way - the latest figures from Twitter show its fourth quarter losses have nearly doubled to $167m with advertising revenue slightly down, and only a small increase in its active users to 319 million. So why did Donald Trump's adhesion to Twitter not lead to Twitter's success? Peter Shankman, a New York-based social entrepreneur and author on new media, gives us his view. All this and more discussed with our two guests: August Turak, entrepreneur and author of The Business Secrets of Trappist Monks, in Raleigh, North Carolina and Madhavan Narayanan, journalist and former senior editor at the Hindustan Times, in Delhi.

Close Ties Between Murdoch and Trump?  

An investigation by The Financial Times suggests President Trump's daughter Ivanka was a key trustee for shares owned by Rupert Murdoch's two youngest daughters. Mr Murdoch owns a media empire that includes Fox News and the Wall Street Journal newspaper. The FT's Global Media ediotr Matthew Garrahan who wrote the story joins us to explain more. The Paris Climate Deal of 2015 was hailed as a major breakthrough in the fight against global emissions. But perhaps one of the sectors not covered by the deal was the airline industry, which accounts for 2% of global carbon dioxide emissions. So what could, or should be done to make planes greener? Simon Blakey, a specialist on low carbon combustion at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Sheffield in the UK joins us from the UN Alternative Fuels Seminar in Montreal, Canada to discuss just that. And struggling to save lives in the waters between Turkey and Greece, we hear from Daphne Matziaraki, director of an Oscar-nominated documentary about the efforts of one coastguard captain. The BBC's Roger Hearing is joined throughout the programme, from Singapore by the President of AC Growth Delivered, Simon Littlewood, and from Boston by Gernot Wagner, author of the book Climate Shock, and professor of economics at Harvard University. They'll also be joined from Sydney by the BBC's Phil Mercer.

Pod One - Teachers don't need cameras, we need discipline! 8th February  

What is the world coming to? A new survey from the Times Educational Supplements has suggested that two-thirds of teachers would feel safer in the classroom if they were wearing a body camera. I say giving cameras to teachers is an absolutely ridiculous idea. Surely, we need to stop the little twerps misbehaving, not capture their antics on film! In my day, if you messed about in class you would've got a clip round the ear. This left me wondering, where has the sense of respect for authority disappeared to? I say we should bring back the cane! I spoke to Alison Ryan, Senior Policy Adviser at the Association of Teachers and Lecturers to see if today's teachers were justified in wanting to wear these "bodycams" for their own safety.

Pod Two - Government spend £60 million on censoring the alternative media! 7th February  

I am disgusted that the government are wasting £60 MILLION of our money tackling far-right extremism, but still no mention of Islamic extremism! This is just a smokescreen to attack alternative media outlets that don't conform to the status quo, and mark my words mine will be next! It's times like this we need alternative news outlets more that ever. That's why I was very interested to hear about Westmonster, an anti-establishment news site set up by Nigel Farage's former pressman Michael Heaver. I spoke to him to find out what he hopes to achieve, and if he's given up on traditional politics for good. John who? My old pal Mickey in West Palm Beach in Florida has never even heard of Speaker John Bercow, but he wants him to have a piece of his mind after he tried to snub The Donald! Apologies for the language used in this interview, but at least you can never accuse Mickey of mincing his words! The Jon Gaunt Show is brought to you in association with Financial Resolver.

France Election: Fillon Apologises Over Family Payments  

As France's presidential election is still wide open, we'll ask who could eventually win. Michael Stothard is the Paris correspondent for the Financial Times newspaper and gives us his thoughts. Also in the programme, almost 100 big US businesses have joined a lawsuit to challenge President Trump's executive order restricting immigration. Emily Dreyfuss writes for the technology news website Wired and tells us why the mostly tech companies have taken such a public stand against the White House. People in Nigeria have been protesting about their government's handling of the country's economic crisis. The BBC's Martin Patience went along to a demonstration in Lagos. Conservationists are challenging the UK government to ban the buying and selling of antique ivory. Charlie Mayhew is chief executive of the conservation charity Tusk, and explains his organisation's opposition to the trade. Plus, Lucy Kellaway of the Financial Times finds out that when it comes to business writing, boring is good. (Picture: Francois Fillon. Picture credit: Getty Images.)

Feb. 6, 2017  

What single figure connects the 2008 financial crisis, the creation of the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, the Tea Party movement, Donald J. Trump’s election and, now, the potential dismantling of the biggest safeguard against America’s economic ruin? His name is Gary D. Cohn. Also, a Times investigation goes inside the world of the Islamic State and finds that terrorists no longer have to cross borders to carry out their attacks.

104: How YOU and YOUR FAMILY Can Become MONEY SAVVY FAST with Adam Carroll  

Adam Carroll is an internationally recognized speaker and thought leader in the field of financial education. He’s presented at over 600 college and university campuses, hundreds of leadership symposiums and countless local and regional events. Adam's TEDx talk at the London Business School has been viewed over half a million times on YouTube, and his work in financial education led to the crowd-funding and release of the student loan documentary Broke, Busted & Disgusted, coming out on Netflix this December. He is the author of Winning The Money Game and The Money Savvy Student, and the founder of Graduating from college quit some time ago, Adam ended up not only with a diploma but with a ton of student debt.

“While I was there, I lived like a rich college student, like most kids do today. But realized the error in my ways when I quickly became a broke professional.”

Luckily for Adam, meeting his girlfriend (and his now wife) during his senior year of college, they collectively put their heads together and found a way to blast through all of their debt, two years into their marriage!

“She told me 'Get rid of your debt or I have to get rid of you'”

It then occurred to him, that it is really quite simple to eliminate debt, and why wouldn’t he start to share his money savvy tips with everyone else? So he began teaching his methodology.

“My wife and I lived off of one of our salaries and used the other to while away our debt.”

Writing his first book, Winning the Money Game, led him to speaking opportunities on college campuses, which then again led him to a great opportunity to create a documentary coming soon to NETFLIX! (I cant wait to watch it!)

Adam is also in the midst of creating a course focused on “Raising Money Savvy Kids.” He believes that as parents and elders, it is our job to mold their minds at a young age on how they can win this money war and eliminate future debt. The perfect podcast to light the money flame underneath you and the most easy-to-use tips, to becoming debt free!

Trêve du Nouvel An chinois à la bourse des métaux de Londres  

De plus en plus connectée à la Chine, la bourse des métaux de Londres fonctionne au ralenti pendant le Nouvel An chinois. La trêve du Nouvel An chinois s'impose aujourd'hui à la Bourse des métaux de Londres. Presque autant que la trêve des confiseurs, entre Noël et le 1er janvier. Le Financial Times rapporte que ce lundi, les opérations sur les contrats de référence de cuivre et d'aluminium à Londres, ont été divisées par deux par rapport à la normale. Les traders londoniens semblent même s'être calqués sur le calendrier chinois pour prendre leurs congés ! Les bourses des métaux de Shanghai et de Dalian sont fermées à l'occasion du Festival de printemps, l'appellation officielle du Nouvel An chinois. Du coup, à la bourse de Londres les courtiers hésitent à prendre des positions sur des volumes importants de contrats de métaux. Les opportunités d'arbitrage entre les différentes places boursières disparaissent également. Cela ne veut pas dire que le commerce physique de métal s'interrompt pour autant mais les transactions papier sont beaucoup plus faibles.   Une preuve s'il en fallait encore de l'importance prise en dix ans par la Chine sur le marché mondial des métaux, dont elle est le premier producteur et le premier importateur au monde. Une importance qui s'est encore accrue en 2016 : les investisseurs chinois sont revenus en masse sur les marchés à terme, à nouveau confiants dans l'économie chinoise, ils ont aussi voulu se protéger de la hausse du dollar, en achetant des matières premières libellées en billet vert.   Le paradoxe c'est que la bourse de Londres, pourtant propriété chinoise depuis quatre ans, n'a pas profité de l'embellie des métaux l'an dernier, les transactions ont même diminué de 8% alors qu'elles ont augmenté de 34% à New York. C'est pourquoi le directeur du London Metal Exchange a non pas pris des vacances pour le Nouvel An chinois, mais démissionné la semaine dernière. Gary Jones a cédé la place à Matthew Chamberlain, 34 ans, très favorable à l'essor du trade électronique des métaux dans cette maison vieille de 140 ans.

Sarah Sands, new Editor of Today; the PM's press pack; editors and politicians  

Sarah Sands, the newly appointed editor of Today talks about her plans for the flagship Radio 4 news programme. An investigation by Newsnight has claimed that David Cameron wanted the editor of the Daily Mail, Paul Dacre, to be sacked during the referendum campaign. So where should the lines been drawn when it comes to politicians managing the media and newspapers involving themselves in politics? Andrea Catherwood talks to former journalist and Tony Blair's former director of communications, Alistair Campbell. And travelling with the Prime Minister: what goes on when the press pack follows the PM abroad. We hear from George Parker, political editor of the Financial Times. Producer: Ruth Watts.

Italy's Jobless Rate Rises to 12%  

We ask if soaring unemployment might embolden calls for Italy to leave the Euro. Giving us their thoughts are Enrico Colombatto, professor of economics at the University of Turin, and our regular economic commentator, Roger Bootle of Capital Economics. Also in the programme, Deutsche Bank is to pay $630m in fines to UK and US regulators for allegedly failing to stop clients laundering money out of Russia. Kara Scannell is an investigations reporter at the Financial Times in New York, and brings us the details. A hotel in Austria was hacked and held to ransom by digital intruders, as we hear from Christoph Brandstaetter, manager of the Seehotel Jaegerwirt. Plus the BBC's Vivienne Nunis reports on a group of entrepreneurs in Kenya who are trying to revolutionise the way matatus, or privately owned minibuses, ferry commuters around the capital Nairobi.
