are we living through the second great depression and just don't know it this week let's talk about that do you think it's the second great depression we're in where this hard question i hope is not maybe some places away easily agrees hopefully not very easily either but i wouldn't say that these only is a great depression do you think it's worse in some places and better in others. it's the worst thing since the great depression probably the second great depression it'll be known in the future as the second worst of the depression yes why are we calling met that now i don't know did they call the great depression the great depression well was happening exactly yeah they don't want to use the word the big deal word depression because a by the phrase that once depression happened to hold their money and we've been taught sold strictly to spend spend spend spend so we stop spending because of depression then things get worse so they don't want that to happen so they'll wait
11:24 am
for the history books to call this officially depression yes if we admit that we're doing things wrong which we should do everybody else you know everything else will take two so they want to be getting out of it as soon as we admit it. we just need to admit there's a problem it's always the first. whether or not we're living through the second great depression the bottom line is probably no one's going to have the nerve to call it bad until it's over. this is are to live from moscow have you ever forgotten to call a distant cousin you talk to only once a year just the wish them a happy birthday well imagine the plight of one extended russian family that are pushed into me i have more than one hundred birthdays to remember with quite a few even falling on the same day. did it and they'd that i knew if you miss. trying hard to prove he knows all of his one hundred and eleven
11:25 am
siblings and cousins my heart out of which only fourteen brothers and sisters are his and add to that all of the onsen uncles and that's one family a bit difficult to keep track of. putting names to face is not a problem the most difficult thing really is remembering everyone's birthdays every other day we sometimes even have three or four per day and ray says their parents had only thirteen children but each of his siblings and it up with many kids of their own so the reality of having children for the chaparral family is taken to a completely different level. than having one child that doesn't really count having two that's guessing the three now that counts as having a child this is the largest family in the clan has fifteen children. when i was asked as a child what i wanted to be when i grow up i always said
11:26 am
a mother now our little when he grows up he'll be a father so the tradition continues and here is the happy grandfather of the one hundred and twelve as well as the great grandfather of another ten great grandsons college says his secret is loving everyone. but grass so much there are people who are happy now buying a car or building a country house that's fine by me but my joy is internal i look at all of them they are my riches that neither my ass nor rust can eat away and no sleep can steal from me and since his memory is far from being as good as that of his grandson if him but he keeps all his records in order that. oh you're back with here's everyone starting from my first grandson in one hundred eighty two those written in boulder boys tallackson girls well i'm not ashamed of how i live my life i worked in
11:27 am
a mine and it wasn't easy but know what but i knew i had to raise them all and i still want to help them and do something good so they remember me forever. and while his grand kids fight for attention to be granddaddy's favorite of the day it's turned out pretty much impossible to get them all into one shot. bertha that is or they say once children grow up and leave home the empty nest syndrome often hits their parents hard so it seems the only guarantee to never feel alone is having more children carry a pushover party came out of a region. all right in just a few moments here on out here we talk to a u.n. special reporter and discuss how to deal with cultural differences in a multinational society that's after a roundup with the headlines with me role research.
