8:12 am
that's it on average. on the other hand it has a lot of debt and obligations. debt and obligations, health care obligations. when democrats play a role, that's going to gradually squeeze things. and the most important thing is not to talk about the economy but to realize there's two different economies. there's the economy for the top 40%, let's sea, and the economy for the bottom. when we think about the trump presidency, we're dealing with the conflict or the dilemmas, the emergence of the two and his election. with that we have to deal with those two economies. that's the biggest issue of our time, i think. >> is it more about the business cycle than it is about the administration's legislative or regulatory decision shs. >> the legislative decisions and regulatory decisions are matters to change -- create that
8:13 am
divergence. so in other words, that population that is the bottom 60% has not had economic growth. they're the majority. they have not had economic growth. they have a rising death rate from opioids and heroin, suicides. they have their own particular challenges. and this economy is now in one way or another about dealing with those two different economies and also technology as technology is entered into this so that it's replacing jobs. in other words, productive is also replacing jobs and creating two different economies. this is the most important economic issue of our time. that's why we have populism. with that populism produce as question of how conflict is dealt with. we have a gap between those, the haves and have-nots, and we have those kinds of conflict. that is the most important thing of the presidency, and it's not just the u.s. presidency but the world phenomenon. you'll talk about it later in
8:14 am
europe. >> to put a finer point on it, the wealth gap is the largest in this country since the 1920s. >> that's right. the period right now is similar to 1937. if you back to 1937. 1929 to 1932, we had a debt problem. just as you point out, in 1937 we were at a similar point. in 1937 we had a wealth gap, a large wealth gap and we also had a federal reserve that began to tighten monetary policy. >> can we please talk about this book "principals." have you heard of this book, "princip "principles." you say it's important to tell the truth even if if it may hurt people's feelings. it's essential and a good work

environment. >> look. we have to start with what reality is, right? we have to start with what troogt is. there are three things in order to be successful. those three things are that you have to lay your honest thoughts on the table. can you do that? lay your honest thoughts on the table? second, you have to have thoughtful disagreement between people who disagree. they have to know how to work those things through so that they all learn. and then, third, to be able to go beyond those disagreements in an idyllic way. >> you say there's a key to making a good decision. you ee got two thoughts on making a good decision. >> which ones are you -- >> being open-minded. number one, being open-minded. >> i think what you're referring to are the two barriers. >> get rid of your ego and the -- >> the two barriers, right. like why can't we be radically
8:16 am
transparent and radically open with each other to get through what's true and work ourselves through. there are two barriers. the two barriers are there's an ego barrier. our brains are programs in a certain way that has to do with our amygdala and also the bad habits. we can't handle the truth. if you can do it -- it's matter of habit. in the book i explain how we actually do that. this has been the key to our success, being that way. radically open-minded. and then through that, getting around, also, that blind area because nobody themselves actually sees the picture the same way. >> that's right. >> there are big-picture thinkers, detailed thinker. we need them all. they all see things very differently. when you can bring that into focus and see it in three dimensions or multi-dimensions and take advantage of all that and go beyond it, it's very

ladieses aren't elected and in many cases they don't have an institutionalized role. in the united states, we do from the beginning. >> what was it for you when you were deciding what you were going to do, how you were going to use that office? >> this is my advice to first ladies. start with what you know. i was a librarian, a teacher. those were really important things that had to do with illiteracy and what you want children and families to do together. in fact, right before september 11th on september 8th was the national book festival, the first national book festival that i founded. you know, 100,000 people came to the national ball. it was such a difference, really, between that day and then two days later. >> mrs. bush, you point out, of course, there's no rule book. >> that's right. >> and the first lady is not elected. >> mm-hmm. >> but can have enormous influence. >> you really can have a lot of influence. we know that and look at the history of the first ladies that

8:36 am
daughters-in-law. >> what are you finding from most first ladies as they navigate the water as they figure out what to do and how to do. >> my advice, do what you know. start with what you -- many of the first ladies around the world that i know were business women already themselves or had other positions and really had -- can bring a lot to their countries. and then, of course, in most cases, women also want to -- first ladies want to support women and children, and that's important as well. they use their role for that. >> what's your proudest achievement what you feel like you were time achieve in your eight years in the white house? >> that's an interesting question. e don't know that i really thought about it. after september 11th when the pot sleight turned to afghanistan and everybody looked and saw the way women were treated by the taliban. >> it resonated with you. >> it resonated with me and a
8:37 am
lot of people. we started the afghan women's kouj right then and hillary clinton joined. >> a perfect example of what a first lady can achieve. >> exactly. it was a great way if me to bring attention to the way women were treated. and i thought around our country -- i saw women especially were horrified request the idea of half of the population of a country being left out, forbidden, even, to walk on the streets uncovered. i started hearing from people around the country. one of my best friends called and she said, you know, i used to be so glad i wasn't in your shoes, but now i'm jealous because you can do something and that's when we really had the idea to do the women's afghan council. >> we've seen melania trump out there with her husband helping the victims of hurricane ir ma

president feels too. >> you know what's interesting in politics among many things, i is how relationships can transcend parties. >> that's right, that's right. >> on the one hand, president trump clinton and bush 41. on the other hand, president bush and michelle obama. they're friends. >> all the presidents. i admire that about the country. the ads former presidents made. first about hurricane harvey and then also about irma, about florida. >> to charlie's point, they seem to have a chemistry. >> they do. they like to laugh. it's fun. and george was actually the one that put his dad and bill clinton together after katrina, i think, or maybe after the tsunami when he asked them to raise moneylet that was a very unlikely friendship and then it ended up being a friendship. >> and a powerle one. >> you look good.
