6:43 pm
reportedly signed an online petition on environmental issues and was then allegedly encouraged by local fracking activists the report also states the boy was frequently reported as missing by his parents he was used as a case study in a report on extremism in the wake of the munch estar bombing as an example of online exploitation into criminal activity. well environmental campaigners say the decision to put the boy on the prevent list is offensive and the coordinator for the pressure group network for police monitoring believes it sets a dangerous precedent we don't know for instance why is the but i'm sure franken was picked as an example of alleged extremism and where the idea came from and there's no definition of that in the report and this comes back so a problem of this begin again and again with involving the counter-terrorism officers and the science of survival of. responses to people involved in
6:44 pm
religious and political dissent domestic extremism the took the lead with the use has no meaning in law it means pretty much whatever the place one as mine. the reports or thirds later admitted that munch ister police dismiss connections between the boy and n t fracking campaigners the report was then corrected the link removed well anti fracking protests grew in communities right across the u.k. after the government started to back exploration for the controversial fuel locals an environmentalist say the fracking process causes earth and water pollution but mining companies insists their work is perfect regulated on carried out safely as for policing the protests kevin blow say's it should not involve kuntar terrorism units. it's the latest in a series of over revelations about the counter-terrorism police told the story and
6:45 pm
the campaigns in particular i'm told it's against for. which is being entirely peaceful we saw that we want to see your names to this day and this is the most this is no basis for it we want to see the complete removal of house. to the public because. what we want to find out a little bit more and i asked the people behind the report about its linking of environmental activism to extremism but we're yet to get a response. now tara is a word we are hearing increasingly now is donald trump goes all meo offensive globally we break down what it means for those buying a car or paying off a mortgage next on the bus.
6:46 pm
this is says harlan kentucky. the voice if you're going street fanny's or you need. a co money city it will be most no coal mines left. the jobs are gone all the coal mines of said that there was a lot of to see these people the survivors of a world disappearing before their eyes. i remember thinking when i was younger that if anything ever happened to the coal mines here that it would become a ghost town but i never thought in a million years i would see that and it's happened it's happened. one else chose seemed wrong. why don't we all just don't call. me cold
6:47 pm
yet to shape out this day comes to advocate and engagement equals betrayal. when something find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. this is boom bust broadcasting around the world today we're coming to you from new york city for a jam packed show which includes professor of economics americas at university of massachusetts amherst richard wolfe plus we look again it hacking and from an interesting angle with r.t.
6:48 pm
correspondent trinity charges plus we're also joined by the c.e.o. of kony says limited tom kaufman to find out about a new crypto currency and monetary system all that ahead but with so much we get right to it. to help get an economist perspective on some of the issues of the day we are once again pleased to be joined by professor of economics of marriages that university massachusetts amherst richard wolffe professor thank you so much for being with us again and it's good to be with you in person to be here so you know you talk about trade all the time and we're in the middle of all these trade wars and we get all caught up in sort of the issues of the day and what did the president tweet and who did offend this day or the next but give us a little perspective sort of a primer on trade over the years and the use of tariffs but basically a tariff is a tax and it's the government deciding to put a tax on something and parentheses it kind of interesting that republicans would
6:49 pm
normally tell us that they're against taxes are now busily pushing taxes it's just a tax that's designed to shape the trade so for example if you tax good coming in from another country that has a particular name called a tyrant that's just the name of that kind of tax so why do you do that to protect the american company producing that guy. it inside the united states from the competition abroad if the people abroad can make the quality better or the price lower then americans will buy that good and to protect the businesses here who might be producing something not so good at the high price you put it tower of because it it doesn't level the playing field it tilts it but of course it's never admitted that way it's always said as the president is doing that the field was already kilted and by my doing it i'm bringing it back into balance in order to
6:50 pm
know whether he's telling the truth or not you would really have to know the details which are not public about how this is done what it costs to produce them over there and what it costs here so it's a murky area but the bottom line is it's a tax meant to manipulate the conditions under which goods are sold across countries boundaries you know it's very interesting when you talk about well republicans of traditional you know they're against taxes and and i guess that's been at least a montra but they're also in favor of free markets and you know they're not free when you have protectionist policies like this so it's a directly at odds with you know the values that they espouse let's talk about one particular area and this is been in the news lately the auto industry which frankly of all the folks out there they've really been frontal in opposition to wall street journal had a full page ad last week and they say we appreciate your efforts but you really are wrong on this and it's going to cost jobs not just in the short term but the longer
6:51 pm
term and car prices are going to go up but these haven't worked out over the past tariffs on autos give us some history on that yes the united states was a leader in the automobile industry so in the early years when it was really developing that we had a better build out automobile production system we were in favor of free trade because we wanted the world to be the market for what americans were good at producing. but as always happens after a while other countries wanted to get in on this japanese companies german companies they wanted also to get the profits of a world that was becoming more and more dependent on automobiles so they did what countries have always done in that circumstance they protected their little market from the american onslaught because we were the most efficient producing the lowest price for the ford motor company famous in that and the best quality but they caught up by putting a tariff by the way the united states caught up to britain after we thought being
6:52 pm
a colony of theirs by putting tower of in this country so we could build up it in economics it's called the infant industry or so it was so what so what we left we left england because of tariffs and then we after a while said you know what we'll have some of our own absolutely to protect us in the one nine hundred seventy s. the japanese and the germans became better at producing cars there's no nice way to say it otherwise that's the truth that's what americans discovered we were very good at producing boats with four wheels yes they were but they were better the japanese primarily producing efficient effective cars as you say at a cheaper price or a cheaper price and that with the germans with v.w. and so on so what happened the one nine hundred seventy s. was suddenly the american automobile industry had real competitors and they didn't want to face them because they would lose profits in the free market so suddenly their commitment to free market order that various dinners when they get up and give a speech flew out the window and they got what's called quotas in the one nine hundred
6:53 pm
seventy s. the united states threatened tariffs on the japanese particularly and in exchange for not getting the tower put on them the japanese agreed to what's called a quota system they would not send more than a certain number of japanese vehicles to the united states in any given year people may remember there were times when the if you wanted to buy a honda. you went to your hundred dealer and you signed up on a waiting list because you had to wait for the company the next year to get it where they have a quotas or a all that quota is is an alternative to a tariff it has the same purpose of protecting now here's the most important story about cars back in the one nine hundred sixty s. the united states which was having a fight with europe about protecting each other's industries decided to levy a tariff on trucks ok that tariff twenty five percent would talk and
6:54 pm
a big tax on any truck made outside the united states that they bring in that made trucks in this country wildly profitable because it meant that ford g.m. chrysler could jack up the price of their trucks because they didn't have to face competition since the book person outside bring it in would have to lop another twenty five percent on ok that's been in effect for the last half a century the notion of the united states as some innocent that is suffering from the tower of of others is a pretense again the only reason from can get away with it is people don't know and the mainstream media have a hard time confronting granted he says so many things i know it's difficult but nonetheless here is an example of a really gross situation americans didn't fall in love with a truck. americans love their trucks because it's very profitable to produce a truck the most profitable product the g.m. and ford have but they don't have it because they're good at trucks they have it
6:55 pm
because there's a protective tower of that has been imposed that prevents japanese and german and italian and other companies from bringing the trucks in here so there's a little bit of fakery here a theater of even steven but it isn't the truth at all a little bit maybe an understatement before we go to another subject i do want to get to another one but where do you see this ending all these trade wars or and as you say the theater surrounding it i think it's going to be a sad situation for mr trump because i think it's a hopeless quest let me explain it this way mr trump is trying to position himself as the champion make america great again by leveling the playing field he's basically saying i want to be able to sell goods in your country while i don't do allow you to do it here i want the terms improved for us at your expense now what other leader can do that if the recent may in england or mccraw in france or mrs
6:56 pm
merkel and in a germany if they went along with this if they caved in their own people would throw them out because they would be looked at as having given away the conditions for their working people to enable mr trump to have an easier time politically in his country this is a not big i'm not going to work now they'll be lots of verbiage and lots of cover to make it look like i've gotten concessions i notice he already began that talk today but the truth of it is this can go this cannot work because the pressure inside these countries to get protection for an economy in trouble is too strong and the ability to force your trading partner to absorb all your costs that won't work either so i think he's going to be badly disappointed and there will be a little bit like the affordable care act a big f. . heard lots of noise in verbiage but not much to show my last question is you know that he really mr trump built a coalition which is
6:57 pm
a tried and true coalition and that as you know business interests the large banks and others and fortune five hundred company executives on the one hand and also the political support the money and then you know conservative americans and nothing wrong with that but that does seem to be sort of falling apart why we mention the auto industry but there's a lot other business leaders do you think this is sustainable from a political perspective i know it's not exactly your area of expertise but i imagine you have an opinion on it absolutely look the one concrete achievement put aside all the verbiage the one thing he did was the december two thousand and seventeen tax cut an enormous gift to the business community in this country and you're quite right that solidified their support they have no reason to be critical of him he delivered a bigger tax cut than they could have reasonably expected so he did that but in the meanwhile the mass of the people whose votes he needs let's call them the older whiter traditional american working class they're still waiting for the big
6:58 pm
delivery of jobs of incomes of a great america again that's real or make believe we'll never know they haven't gotten their goodies so where is he going to get it for them all right he wants to take wealth from other parts of the world by changing the trading arrangements they're not going to let him do that well what's left for him he's not going to tax the rich he's one of them he's helping them and that's too late for that there's one thing left which is to really whack the poor people of this country to take away the government supports the government programs for them in order to move some of that to the people who back them i think he's going to try to do that i think you already see in the cut backs of course the board in these budget proposals you see that underway. but that right to make the mass of the americans a bottom sixty sixty five percent of our people very angry very bitter and if you
6:59 pm
motivate them if you educate them then mr trump it will be a history very quick so he's in a very tough spot and i think his desperation his tweets or a reflection that if the wall the fakery of the language he's real options are not looking very good sobering but very informative thank you pressure richard wolfe appreciate being with you in person thank you very much for the opportunity. hacking has become a grim reality over the past few decades a new methods are being developed and deployed all the time however in modern times new targets of come into scope to take a deeper dive into the tech security industry we have things over to our correspondent treated each other. experts are warning consumers and corporations to
