2:13 pm
but there are several key global leaders who are not attending including us president donald trump diplomatic editor james bays in davos for us now james oh what a difference a year makes davos just isn't the same this year as it. it's not the same and there clearly are big figures not here for example the french president emanuel macro because of the problems back home trees i'm a because of bricks it she was never going to come here because that deadline is getting so close but the big difference the man who when every turns up at a global tap the gathering tends to dominate it is donald trump and it was all about donald trump one year ago and at the time he was riding pretty high all the economic news from the us was good news he was almost on a victory lap when he was here in davos a year ago when i watched him in the hall behind me very different now. one year ago when president trump arrived in davos the business world was already aware
2:14 pm
of the unpredictable nature of the u.s. is most unusual more than president most of the well read intellectually focused and strategically minded business leaders who attend this annual gathering could not be more different from donald trump a man who once ran casinos and arguably sometimes ran his empire as if he was in a casino yet when he came here he walked around the halls on a victory lap he was proud of a strong economy united states is doing fantastically well and he stated here as he did many times elsewhere that he was most happy to be judged by one metric the stock market is smashing one record after another and has added more than seven trillion dollars in new wealth since my election it didn't stay that way
2:15 pm
increased volatility at the end of the year meant two thousand and eighteen ended up the worst year on the us stock market for a decade so would trump receive a similar reception if he was coming to dabble this year i asked a leading economist. you know it's quite different from last year he had just passed the big tax cut and they were about to increase spending for the economy in the short run was very positive and so there was a sort of a legitimate optimism about the u.s. economy a year ago what's become clear is that there was a short term boost not a long term boost and i think one has to look at the way financial markets have behaved over the last several months or at least creating circumstances where a recession is probably more likely. than it would have been otherwise. so that is the worry that a recession going forward the worry is about china it's a worry about growth that's not increasing in china the worry about
2:16 pm
a downturn in china a worry about a trade war between the u.s. and china that ongoing shutdown in the u.s. if that continues that could be a problem for the u.s. economy the nightmare scenario of course for president trump is the shutdown happens at about a story that downturn even a recession happens in about a year's time of course the key year an election year in the united states that would be a nightmare for a u.s. president who's not here none of his delegation are here they all decided to give double the u.s. view there will be represented secretary of state who was going to come here is instead going to address delegates by video link that coming in a few hours time daryn all right james bays there in dallas james thank you. tom first a break here and i just want to come back blowing off steam we're in china where young people are finding ways to cope with the lack of job prospects the taliban attack in afghanistan raises questions of the talks with the united states more on
