What a great interview. Lewis this is the first video of yours i've watched and I had to subscribe! You're not afraid to have certain guests, you're engaging. But more importantly you asked questions I've never seen someone ask Ben (especially the ones about his childhood, which was super interesting).
This was a really interesting interview! I don't know much about this channel or Lewis but this came from a politically neutral/unique angle compared to most interviews with Ben, so this was a great learning experience for me!
Lewis, you're such a phony. You like EVERY SINGLE one of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's posts on Instagram! If you don't know anything at all about politics, like you admitted at the top of the episode, why the hell would you advocate for a socialist? Especially since you are all about determination, and hard work? Maybe it's not you, but you need to check whoever is managing your Instagram account.
I like Ben. I agree with many of the thigs he says, but he needs to start solving the problem of that baby turkey neck he's starting to grow. It's annoying when high IQ people do highly irrational things, like gain weight, don't take care of their bodies, and go through life acting as if their bodies are just a simple device that their brains use to move from one place to another. This is where low IQ people and high IQ people, behave exactly the same when it comes to irrational behaviors and decision making. Getting your points across is not just about speaking well, it's also about physically looking healthy and presentable. One of the very dumb things in life is seeing a high IQ person talk about solving life problems, and yet they themselves are failing at one of the most important aspects of life which is your health. Loose that chin before you become one of those deep south fat republicans who can barely breath properly, all while going on and on about how superior he is. Yeah, real superior in fatness.
Sorry to be harsh, but I just couldn't take seeing that neck anymore. Months ago I though I was just seeing things, but he's getting bigger. Get back in shape dude.
I've been on a Ben Shapiro watching spree and I must say that this is one of the best interviews that I have seen so far. Lewis is a great interviewer that knows when to ask questions, but more importantly..... when to listen.
Lewis, you are so successful and amazing because you are unbiased and bring so many different personalities and view points on. Loved this interview. Wether your guest is on the left or right, I enjoy learning from them. Thank you for sharing all different view points with us ❤️
+Lewis Howes That part where he tells about how he left his career as a corporate lawyer to pursue another path. I am in a very similar situation right now with a high-paying job and unhappy doing what I do, but I am also insecure about changing careers at this point of my life (I am 30). Knowing that someone like him that was raised reading great books, playing violin and skipping grades at some point had the same feelings and had to do the same choice makes me feel more confident to handle this moment of my life.
Lewis you are my favorite person on YouTube right now. I so admire Ben Shapiro and I admire you for interviewing people and having such open and honest discussion with each individual. You are so inspirational!
+Lewis Howes Hey, what do you think about this Sir?. And BTW THANKS for choosing to lift people up!!
What Ben said in this interview about people being happy that Trump sympathizes with them and that they SHOULD move to the city to compete with people who have 20 or 30 more IQ points and education, now from a GLOBALIZED world, while their jobs are exported to other countries and that their thinking that Trump might save them is absurd. That's where Ben shows his LACK of wisdom and that is being able to put himself in the skin of other people. I wonder if that's part of the reason why Ben was bullied. That is one of the things I find about smart people that makes them lacking, no humility. Which denies them the path to become actually wise. It would be nice to interview one of his bullies and see.
I only write this because it seems that you actually can.
You are watching a future president! For me what once started as light hearted entertainment turned into a ever expanding educational journey. G-d bless him. But first...let me tell you about my sponsor.
ben, sam, rogan and jordan pulled me out of a big slump. they taught me how to think critically and to spend energy in learning to control and question myself. they taught me how to disagree without contempt. truly some of the most influential intellectuals of our time.
Only thing I disagree with the guy who had the gall and talent to debate Cenk and manage to make him look ridiculous using his own arguments is key.
Capitalism can converge into totalitarianism.
So that means I have to take everything else he says and does with a grain of salt.
And one more thing, didn't MLK tag that men should be judged by their character? Hmm.
I don't know much about Ben Shapiro, I've watched a couple of videos now. He is obviously intelligent, articulate and well read. I can't say I agree with alot of things he says but what I will say is that he sets a good example. This is what everyone should be doing, a healthy respectful debate as its the only way society can prosper. Nowadays you just get/hear "Liberal snowflake" and "the right" and its more complicated than that. I consider myself more Liberal as ive always considered it progressive and assosiated it with tolerance. Free Speach is a Liberal act for example. However I'm also annoyed with the "snowflake" problem, it has nothing to do with liberalism in my opinion and find the modern age feminism disrespectful towards the purpose of the movement in the first place where woman died fighting for equality. I also think we need conservative elements in society also to balance things out, if that makes sense?
Thanks for the engagement Lewis. One thing that I took away from this interview, regarding Ben’s remarks about his childhood, is the reminder that our past experience, the hard ships we face, although extremely difficult, can actually benefit us. Tribulations and trials give us attributes and characteristics we would not have had we not gone through difficult moments.
+Lewis Howes most sell the same shit song. same old same old. to afraid to say what must be said in fear of upsetting someone. i like your calm honest opinion and open ideas. the liberal monster that has been created is killing humanity. and few are brave enough to stand and fight it.
When Ben quickly adds 'or she has to take care of me' when discussing enforced healthcare: was that because he didn't want to appear sexist, didn't want to assume the doctor's gender or because his wife is a doctor?
Emotional appeal is part of what makes us human. If that piece is left out of the argumentative process, we have neglected our humanity. Lewis, I don’t know anyone but you who could have stayed present in this interview. I think you brought out the best in him because you have a compassionate heart that strives to understand the person with whom you are communicating. Don’t take that for granted. I’m learning from you. . .gradually. 😊 I had a very difficult time staying present with this one because I think that anyone with extreme views would benefit from walking one day in the shoes of another person (in this case, a transgender person). For someone who was a social outcast, I’m surprised that he doesn’t see the opportunity to connect with others who probably have experienced the same situation in our society. By judging someone else — such as whether they are male or female — he is continuing the same cycle that he underwent. He honors his own right to speak his truth and be authentic to himself, but he judges that trait in others. The energy spent on judging could be spent being kind to the other person or working to understand the other person. This is the humane gift of compassion that connects us. With that said, I do connect with him on his desire to do service for others. I think we can all agree with each other on this point. It is good to surround ourselves with other viewpoints so that we don’t become so extreme and stuck in our belief systems. This interview really stretched me. Thank you for using your platform to expose all of us to viewpoints that are uncomfortable for us. There is great wisdom in what you are doing, and I commend your team for reaching out to all of us. It is then that we can learn new viewpoints, understand each other better, and we can all work together to make real change. 🙏
Lewis Howes he is only 2 years older than me but he is incredibly smart and wise. He is also honest which people hate nowadays. It’s a little sad to hear how he was treated as a kid and I really feel for him. Iit is also nice to know how committed he is to his family because I am the same way. Don’t have a lot of friends but my family is everything to me.
More people need to just listen to what he is saying and not imply other meaning to it.
Although foreigners may now invest in A-shares, there is a monthly 20 percent limit on repatriation of funds to foreign countries.
Performance of A-shares.
Since its inception in 1990, including a major reform in 2002, the index has seen great fluctuations. Overall, however, it has grown along with the Chinese economy. The years 2015 to 2016 were a particularly difficult period, with a 52-week performance of -21.55 percent as of July 20, 2016.
As China grows from an emerging market to an advanced economy, there is substantial demand for Chinese equity. Stock exchange regulators continue efforts to make A-shares more broadly available to foreign investors and have them recognized by the global investing community.
In June 2017, the MSCI Emerging Markets Index announced a long-awaited decision it would add stocks to its index. According to CNBC, MSCI will add 222 China A Large Cap stocks to its benchmark emerging markets index gradually beginning in 2018. The MSCI website reveals the stocks it will list include the Bank of China, China Merchants Bank, Guotai Junan, Ping An Insurance, according to a document on Tsingtao Brewery, SAIC Motor, Suning Commerce and Spring Airlines.
Current Dividend Preference.
Participating Preferred Stock.
Convertible Preferred Stock.
Cumulative preferred stock includes a provision that requires the company to pay preferred shareholders all dividends, including those that were omitted in the past, before the common shareholders are able to receive their dividend payments.
Non-cumulative preferred stock does not issue any omitted or unpaid dividends. If the company chooses not to pay dividends in any given year, the shareholders of the non-cumulative preferred stock have no right or power to claim such forgone dividends at any time in the future.
Participating preferred stock provides its shareholders with the right to be paid dividends in an amount equal to the generally specified rate of preferred dividends, plus an additional dividend based on a predetermined condition. This additional dividend is typically designed to be paid out only if the amount of dividends received by common shareholders is greater than a predetermined per-share amount. If the company is liquidated, participating preferred shareholders may also have the right to be paid back the purchasing price of the stock as well as a pro-rata share of remaining proceeds received by common shareholders.
