really fascinating stuff and and martin we very much appreciate you joining us to tell us a little bit more about this painting on your impressions of it as an expert as we mention to our viewers you are a professor in the history of art at oxford university and a leading leonardo da vinci expert we appreciate it but we have some breaking news just coming in before we go german industrial giant zemin says that it is slashing nearly seven thousand jobs worldwide as part of restructuring efforts around half of those job losses will be in germany we are following the latest here on more again at the top of the. interest of time he says that's why i think it's really important to give a bit of time and look back to the families who make so much effort.
i'm an only child. a great childhood to mason parents gave me everything i needed. a flat when i was young. i mean we were poor but it was so much loves that we didn't really notice. we grew up and then vitamin way out you never really knew who was going to hop on that case all over and say i'm to. come had to previous generations might be
skint might not be able to for the best pair of shoes but we're not even in poverty . we make plenty of money like we make plenty of money it's not like we won the lottery and moved into a big fancy neighborhood. my integrity is what i had you know a long time ago people's word integrity minute long. i grew up happy. in the appalachian mountains. we had good christmases we have love i was horrible. but now. just. what the hell am i now.
hear me. no challenge this morning. with another summer for country work a shrinking number of people do really well but are good for number barely get by. or we can restore an economy where everyone gets a fair shot and everyone does their fair share and everyone plays by the same. certainly. the united states are going to fight it with an economic affliction of great proportions it is time to reawaken this industrial giant to get government back within its means and the like in our punitive tax burden on these principles there will be no compromise. thank you don't want i'm a going back to work on out. all out war by the council workers and other
industrial dispute based on the lorry drivers has led to some panic buying in the shops market the phone the whatever the government tried to do it wasn't nestle making things better it might be making things worse i didn't think the free market would produce the resources the could make everybody better off the argument was that if you did this we get rid of unemployment there'd be more investment to be more. that will trickle down i mean it's hard to pass a time one without big rewards people like me are not going to work fifteen to twenty hours a day in order to get rich. we .
oh. he'll be back when i go to it. than you've probably been but when i can come in at night and if he's not i know if he's ill probably going straight but anyway do you . have. the mice of in bed when a good week and then when i come home back to bed and i'm no just forcing myself on the continent. for good kids can be the cabin was the principal type of smoke back in the states
but i could get a source to get by that all but one of the principals of stock investments the floor let me just like the road i was and always i swear guess it started on the day of the cold the cuts on the casket where we left him going to cuddling on the tryst pain of pakistan bashing and let's try to get the idea. my mom was thought a sex when she died if i keep drinking not me. maija not being dead or her sex. all of the things that i need to do to try a will lengthen my life or she's already cut short because i was born in poland if i make it to seventy i'll be lucky and not eat solid of the dish. now of course because of a growing body of the people know that on employer. public health consequences instead of the former idea that it was businessman stress that led to the worst
health problems. i have come name thing my blood pressure to have been tied in. all different diseases a man. in a dead above when is a good day. that's what i've been. i said is what i know you know if you can live to see. my daughter's father passed on the twenty third of last year. they cannot hurt me a little bit. back to me in this thing oh my. dad a liver cancer. it's really. it is it's a good thing. now i know in a better place he suffered. quite some time. i did
and. we used to get a fourteen year long time. in glasgow men living in the poorest part have a life expectancy of fifty four. in india three quarters of the population live on two dollars a day or less. no wedding plans can have some two dollars a day or less and yet many in the poorest part of glasgow have life expectancy this is shorter than the average in india. and i thought. that's it that's going to explain it being relatively disadvantaged has profound consequences which determine high rates of suicide violent deaths alcohol heart disease.
gave me what i thought was confidence so it's that core belief that there was something less and. was a pink elephant your spell that really. everybody is trying to escape in their own way used to try and escape. doing different things like marijuana minister there are middle aged people probably drink or do some this kate older people probably just don't care because they oh you know deal with head. but everybody trying to escape something.
it's just i use my beer and my cigarette. and give me a little be air nanny any method bad says have a look at me a good movie and go to be. ok she will know where i said i scream and i scream. sometime last it will kind of end until i came home till i'm stuffed. i think you look good with a little meat only about. me g.-d. good at home. i feel very anxious all the song in the nervousness just just in a customer cyano smiling. for example a man yesterday as he told me he said you look like you need to calm down and i'm like i can't you know the boy is like going to have
a heart attack and i'm like i know. he helped me. but i used to work and i would leave and i would go jogging to jam the novice test of anything and i got where instead i would rather get come home as a down and eat and stay you know. i was walking out on us i mean it's been rough because we were so short handed i was like i'm against those that love it if it were nice and you still come to put it up but that's there are things you know. if you take an economics course you're taught that markets are based on informed consumers making rational judgment suppose you turn on the television should. take a look at the ads i mean are they trying to create informed consumers making rational choices the country they're trying to create or uninformed consumers who
have to hand mine i don't want to i had congestive high fares and i actually literally died and. it took me two weeks to come out of the car i'm just luggage in my heart still. beating low enough to do what i need to do you know but that's just making it weaker. you saw that. in two thousand and four. it just makes me sleep easy at night knowing i found home by myself with my kids that there's somebody watching.
and the. rabbit hand. i would love to see more of all that i always say i wish i had a husband i worked a nine to five job you know where are we were able to come home together at night and take care of the kids together but i i know that's not reality and i know he's providing a lifestyle for us that without him working is hard because. we know that financial distress is one of the main factors that sends people to see marriage counselors in the areas that saw the biggest increases in the body we saw the biggest increase in divorce rates people in the middle are trying to make ends meet
and in the process of experiencing an enormous amount of additional stress in their lives it's time for. a minute. after a week i'm exhausted i work all day and then i come home to two kids to feed and they even read to kind of make up for all the hours that i wasn't home. without you know. i know i am. it's awful i feel tremendous guilt. not being able to see the girls and put them to bed in the end it's very frustrating when the girls are more used to her than me. caring. for their
character but. how are you and i. feel. yeah i just got she played on the from home and the neighborhood. paid from page a.j. you've been arrested and what they even be sound as i mean look in here from my saw is the free and i don't want to be hard no fugitive i mean they're cooking. this just from people stressing out because the economy is so jacked up over here and that's why we end up with situations like these people for different thought and they made and frustrating at a job i'm going to enter and trying you know people have
a peer rage against another person morning with somebody else and. they are just trying anything to take the frustration out causing add too much else to do. psychologists and sociologists who what with criminals consistently say that lack of respect is the trigger for violence and aggression all that's left to people is the maintenance of self-respect and so if that's threatened. in some way and you see this violent and aggressive reaction. police make say two teenage boys and existing euro girl. gun fight and a birthday party are privately. this is not unusual they've had a lot of people killed in this little town in the past few years high school students killing each other you know when you know this is you never know when you
you know you want to be robbed and. i would love to walk to work or ride a bike to work and of course there's only like two miles down the road but i'm too scared to ride a bike or walk home at midnight i always worry about walking that parking lot always so with half the lights out right now. you know it's a very dangerous place. to get on well with the sixteen homicides last year. three times the number of people that are in this church policing community are trying to address an epidemic of violent crime much of it rooted in drugs street sweeper shot good twelve twelve gauge drills in this drum magazine no cites because it's not designed to meet any so i.
see that is coming well i'm sick of the i'm stressed out all this is just is this devastating look at look and we. think you can run you next week and. at the moment. i'm hanging out just not in the moment. you know i have this door closed and the good doc ran here i am in now ok i was out there i mean i'm going to. war on crime. every level. to kind of corner are getting out of the way
freaking wall that they are where they can and want. to. start this group our. hero. oh. there we go guys have a good answer for. all right thanks or no you're welcome. ever saw it called. probably one of those chickens got mauled another one got. nicked out and chased around. with the little guy in the able to get it mediated with him and got him calm down. the coyotes giving how deciding who they give uniform
a show about that not much just that it was crossing the road on the north side there's some like was that big one so it was a big one. they've been hanging around for a few months now i think i was i believe so and will the past lake. house so they're tossing rocks through the windows but they're ok you know that is a new one and there are. other loose dogs we're talking about but that. doesn't square that away is looks like everything is noted on the cards properly so that sounds good grab a cup of coffee and let's just structure feed a little bit and then we'll continue it sounds like a bunch of it's fresh stuff where. violent crime in the future provokes our crippling our society limiting personal freedom and fraying the ties that bind us now those who commit repeated violent crimes should be told when you commit
a third behind crime you will be put away and put away for good three strikes and you are now. i get caught with a gram a dope one point five cramps ok then. i would hurt anybody but myself i would sell it you know i didn't give it to kids or anything like that and i go to court and i would try and hear anything that they're used that three strikes against and they gave me a twenty five year sentence i've been in a box just live with bigger than this for the last seventeen years and to be locked up and treated as i have been treated here there's not a man alive that would feel the same way that i do now they've created a ball i hate me yeah i'm in the penitentiary but you know something i've
never i've never been caught with anything i've got to get but now i get in front of females and these officers and i got to bend over so they're my asshole yeah humiliating it it's beyond that i had all i had all my momma i had i was kicked out of the robertson unit i was beaten almost to death they broke eight ribs they dislocated my arms mildly they broke my jaw they kicked out not greil they broke my ocular bone my nose but you know something the first time that i didn't get my head ripped off three days later it didn't hurt as bad and then up and then did i became a must i hate people and you know how sad that is to say.
you know i have been treated so bad back here that yes i could i could actually now i could kill a man you know i really could i could kill one of these loves and i'm in it not sad but it's sad because i you know i was raised i was raised as a now. and what about going to do now mr around when i get out what am i going to do get me a job at mcdonald's i'll be fifty four years old came down when i was twenty six i was in college i was taking a vote check what in my god what am i going to do now because what you were before you come to the penitentiary is not what you're going to be when you're released. this is a country that began with the language of liberty and yet we have more people in
prison to tap into than anybody in the world. there's no doubt that being rich makes it much less likely they'll be incarcerated even if time something terrible. says. not. to cling to. god. while this is the richest here ever human history the rich are getting richer there's evidence are less and these are creators to have put across these are doing or making things happen when they do well and don't do well. there's a religion that says everyone will benefit as always nice to do with the real world so it completely fails in the real world house is the wrong word it's not
a failure for the the fraction of one percent of the population that's accumulating wealth you know beyond the dreams of avarice the influence of money in politics has risen dramatically in recent decades the people at the top have more money what they've been doing has been giving bigger contributions to politicians and in return asking for lower tax rates on themselves and less stringent regulations on their companies from humble beginnings in small town arkansas to the world's leading retailer wal-mart has come a long way since one nine hundred sixty to no one except for maybe son who never lost sight of his original idea could have predicted the company's remarkable growth would not sustain case because one must be. a national registry billionaire and they are no doubt highly respected in the communities in which they live in their doubt they do respectable things a very fine museums and they give money to hospitals and feel that they will let
stuff. and yet you know in many communities people who work at will law are going to wage but also getting food stamps so that basically the public is paying for labor. for fiscal year in two thousand and twelve when more has gross sales of what four hundred forty six billion and then the net sales were sixteen point seven but almost seventeen billion dollars net profit i have no problem when it comes to make you know profit like i said i have my own business but when you're making a profit at the expense or you get the people who are doing the work and they're in there their own food stamps it's a moral issue if you're making a decision are we going to cut our so we can keep profit up you know what your doing. we've been finding that wealthier individuals are more likely to perceive the pursuit of self interest as opposed to collective interest as being moral and
favorable we're even observing this moralization of greed this greed is good mentality this culture absolutely selects for psychopathic thinkers you know people who literally have no empathy whatsoever because once you have successfully cleaved off ethical considerations you're incredibly efficient i think there's nothing wrong with aspiring to be comfortable i don't even know that there's anything wrong with aspiring to be rich but the aspiration of wall street is how you money and you money is the amount of money so vast that you can pick up the phone or you to whoever you wanted without repercussion. one of the necessary illusions for the general public is that we live in a capitalist economy but the rich don't believe that for a minute they insist on a powerful state to protect them from market discipline so if goldman sachs makes
a risky transaction they're basically protected if it crashes they can run to the nanny state with their cap and have it build out good morning this is a pivotal moment for america's economy. problems that originated in the credit markets and first showed up in the area of subprime mortgages have spread throughout our financial system it's been a dismal time on street last i mean the dow jones one hundred points oh my yesterday the dow closed down five hundred investors agree that this is a show me to see whether or not the government can step in and feel the same kind of mean i'm a strong believer in free enterprise. under normal circumstances i believe companies that make bad. fissions should be allowed to go out of business but these are not normal circumstances you know the president has said over and over it's the people's money. dread about that it is the people's money but now it's the people's
debt. this is a pain that will stay with me for the rest of my life but you got to keep four hundred eighty million dollars i have a very basic question for you is this fair the spectacle all of these bankers who have contributed hugely to bringing the western economies to the knees and yes still going on paying themselves money beyond the dreams of avarice in most people's eyes and they really think they're worth it but sometimes i meet them socially and they say max when we understand this is how capitalism works i say this is not how capitalism work this is talk up and listen goes hopelessly disastrously wrong. i mean. i'm the best person to speak on behalf of the last record that it is i sit
across from them. you know i see the same out of the people on wall street are working harder now than ever before not knowing whether they can ever move up the ladder and when will this rat race and for the. dr all been cast as a chink a psychologist and probably more than anything else. is known for helping people manage i'm certain they and maintain optimum motivation and performance in times of uncertainty. i think. it's become a mission for me to help people out during this rough time because i feel like in my practice as a psychologist my clients are looking to me for answers my dissertation is the first study in the united states conducted in the last fifty years was called
casualties of wall street and assessment of the walking wounded and my findings basically show that we are currently in a crisis of connectivity. overload with. when. we should not bail out those who made the reckless decision to buy a home they knew they could never afford. that were greedy homeowners this is about poor people who bought t.v. is on their second mortgages and it's their father and they were greedy that's the
mentality blame the victim. i kept using my credit cards to live and then i found i got those where i was maxed out and i'm at the end and. to be moving. i've got to go very soon within the next few weeks you know. this is this is the. there's a lot of data. suggesting that social mobility is an all time low people despite their hard work aren't achieving the american dream. so who is it that achieves well it's often those individuals that are born into wealth the first place. i actually feel like i'm blessed with having everything i need. or.
could not ask for anything more and. yet fifteen years old i left big stone gap virginia and i hitchhiked across this entire continent to southern california. and i had a good job. heterosexual. life was good i was thinking about going to hollywood be the next tom cruise or somebody you know. but it happened my dad. my mom had hired lung infection. she died in eighty
nine and it crushed me crash me you know i went into a spiral a new one wrong spiral and doing things to get by. it took me down a long road that i didn't want to travel but i did i was hanging out with the wrong people do wonderful things. trying to make money and try and you know survive pretty much i'm one year from out a year and i came. sere couldn't get his story and then i hate here isn't an added time i couldn't have been with me because i was so. wiped out but after my congestive heart failure i woke up it was a wake up call a day i needed. a soul in need a way i did it. so i've been off to the races ever since.
the. bridge so feel that mainstream school is a great place for kids who are even slightly above the curve. so probably homeschool if they're not staying on track meeting the milestones meeting the goals they need to meet it's going to impact long term what the outcome looks like. no challenge is more urgent no debate is more
important we can either sell for a country where a shrinking number of people do really well while a growing number of americans barely get by. or we can restore an economy where everyone gets a fair shot and everyone does their fair share and everyone plays by the same set of leaders. it's not the case that inequality is attributable to bad apples but rather that the barrel is bad the barrel is what's contaminating the apples it's the institutions that prioritize getting ahead above all else that it's ok to break the law if that means that your going to make more profits for the company with no attention to what the consequences are for the system as a whole. one time just two is the feeling that the some mechanism out about which you can do nothing to that's not simply not true she if you want to change this
they can change it never. let me busy a tale and i'm here today to have a voice for my fellow worker and everybody this is rather late in the day as food into rochelle mounted what would you like to say to the boss of allied health for whom you work i don't blame any one particular company the truth unless the government actually acknowledge the importance of the whole cast sector within this country people are going to continue to be failed these problems a deep rooted within the system and the system that needs to change my name is janet sparks and i am a wal-mart associate at store number eleven zero two when i think about the fact there are see my do made over twenty million dollars last year more
than one thousand times the average wal-mart associate. with all due respect i have to say i don't think that's right. back. i wish we'd never gotten into this subject and i wish we'd never had this extraordinary high rewards i didn't realize that that was going to happen maybe others always knew perfectly well that this would be the result of it but i think that that is unfortunate some are i regret it i think you know you sort of always have it maybe in the back of your mind that you know you're not part of something good but i didn't have a clear sense of why i'm doing something actively harmful and then when the financial crisis hit i started to feel really uncomfortable and i asked my boss will the public ever forgive us for this and meaning the bail out and he based i
said to me well here's the thing the public always forget the public forgot after the savings and loan crisis the public forgot after long term capital management blew up the public always forgets and the public will forget again and we will you know move on and it will go back to normal so don't worry about it. i have been sober for coming up for eleven months that's the longest of of being away from a drink. and i'm well my mum's in for it up his face most. i
thought was going to come right back to square one to help me. i did doing my my. cardio me. there is a push to have a secondary gate to keep these ten to twenty homes completely separate from the rest of the homes that are already completely separate. i think it's a status thing more than a fear thing there's already a guy at the gate house of them with a gun. but you tell me. you know you know. to be honest i rather live in florida. one of my next motivating factors is going to be the fact that i do want to eventually move to florida and
have a second home. how will i lose grist i might be living under a bridge next week you know but. at least that i tried. when i was if i could be a millionaire or anything like that and about one big house they got about fifty a bit of wrongs you know i have all my families with me you know i would love their . i would love them you know done. by myself somebody who. has left us so much i wish i could say the case of that mall or spectrum i think for dinner at night i don't want much of a life i just wish. it was
a bit easier. most likely i end up back here. but it won't be because i'd walked into a school and shot up a whole bunch of children or rape somebody or anything like that get of me because i probably got caught stealing a loaf of bread get a life sentence for. the way back. in good shape. the foresight institute has recently found out that one in two germans is afraid of getting alzheimer's disease and i guess in your country despite his say so what this new also says this is what i'm going to find out here
in bonn at the german center of new degenerative disease it's. good shit get your feet on the. line be our fighters want to start families to become farmers or engineers every one of them has a plan that you know where you're sure. that the children who have already been the boy and those that will follow are part of a new process. they could be the future of. granting opportunities global news that matters d. w. made from minds. if you. just want to thank you. with the senses. recognize. and experience the inexpressible.
