9:00 pm
and very human will seduce you into learning how to use jobs and was unveiled their new computer in the spring of 1977 at the computer fair in san francisco the apple 2 is a smash hit. the apple 2 was a huge that it was actually really the 1st all usable personal computer apple 2 always you know i always thought it was magical because you could do almost anything you thought of if he were creative enough the apple to the 1st personal computer designed for the general public the sales are phenomenal it in bodies the computer revolution but it has a serious handicap and the person who has the solution is boogie. was the acro version of basic but it wasn't completely up to date it was a certain aspect of it that wasn't in there so they began looking around for another version of basic that ran on that ship at the apple 2 used and microsoft
9:01 pm
was a company that had it so they got in touch with bill gates. with basic microsoft supplies what the apple 2 lacks this is the 1st collaboration between bill gates and steve jobs but at the end of the seventy's thanks to the success of the aapl to the spotlight is on steve jobs and then in 1980 they went public so there are all these people have stock that got very rich and it was one of the 1st public companies in the personal computer space where people got rich so then people started to really paying attention what's it like to get rich it's very interesting i was worth. over a $1000000.00 when i was $23.00 and over $10000000.00 and i was $24.00 and over $100000000.00 and i was $25.00 but. especially at that point in my life it was it
9:02 pm
was not the most important thing the most important thing was the company the people the products we were making the products also the obsession of bill gates his vision of a world organized a run software. there's a lot of people who are forecasting that they'll be software stores just like there are record stores today and that they'll be thousands and thousands of those and i think i'd have to agree with that oh my it's always 1st product was basic and that was sold to apple and that was sold to radio shock and commodore they were all customers so he already was doing business with sort of everybody that was trying to make personal computers he was the 1st person to really have the idea of a software company separately from a hardware company and that maybe the software company was going to create more value the hard work company apple was the big elephant you know bill gates was the mouse so bill gates being that position he was
9:03 pm
a scheming you know strategic guy and he managed to work his company up despite the fact that the giants of the personal computer business apple and to some extent in i.b.m. were giants and he had to get his software on to them in order to grow his company . i.b.m. the computer hardware giant soon enter the new personal computer market but computers and nothing without software to i.b.m. known as big blue turns to bill gates who seizes the opportunity and in 1980 signs of a lucrative contract with i.b.m. his new computer operating system would run on all i.b.m. p.c. and most dos is the backbone of the p.c. and it makes the computer easier to use. the smartest thing he did maybe the smartest thing he ever did. computer business was that he got
9:04 pm
i.b.m. to sign a deal that gave him a one time payment. i don't allow him to license it other people might clone i.b.m. p.c. i.b.m. did not really think anybody else was in a successfully clone their p.c. so they didn't care bill gates's must have strong in addition to his contract with i.b.m. he retains the right to sell his computer operating system to any of big blue's competitors gringo with dos gates sets the software standard for the entire p.c. industry i'd say within 6 months of him doing the i.b.m. deal. everybody in silicon valley knew about microsoft the. in the early eighties steve jobs and bill gates are still a new 32 key players in
9:05 pm
a rapidly expanding industry meteoric success stories for 2 very different personalities. robert cringely knew both men well he worked with gates and jobs starting in the late seventy's a former staff member at apple he switched to journalism and for more than 30 years has written about their rivalry with bill was always about the money with steve it was never about the money and money is nice but it was never about the money i am so that that made them black and white you know up and down up the hole they were there very very different people i hired steve jobs at atari when i think hughes 90. he was very sure of himself and was quick to judge whether he thought you were smart or dumb and if he thought you
9:06 pm
were dumb he was very dim dismissive even if you were his supervisor he he was very good at knowing what he wanted and he would just steamroll you into doing it and he definitely relied on his instincts a lot he relied on his gut and he talked about that all the time and that's a certain type of spiritual dimension of being into being you know we had read books about for instance gordon chief a famous russian spiritual master who was always talking about integration and a whole mess which means using all your faculties which means using your 3rd eye of vision. in the 70s like many of the hippies at the time steve jobs and his friends daniel costa leave to go to india the trip is a rite of passage a search for spiritual wisdom. we were looking for
9:07 pm
a wise man who had secrets of knowledge for us. nothing really much happened to us we did not find the guru we hoped we would find. steve would talk about all this. spiritual stuff and yet he could be a cool person you know he he he had a real troubles with intimacy he couldn't allow himself to get close to people. i don't know why you know he loved the idea of spiritual ism but to live it was hard for him. and bill is just geeky you know he's he he's just a very nerdy guy and as such in especially his early years he had problems communicating and being understood and his family didn't know what to do with them
9:08 pm
and he found his niche in business and technology and succeeding just on the basis of brainpower steve jobs and much better marketeer than more than bill gates was but he was not really that technical he was not a technical code writer bill gates could write code and write good code bill just different he led with the data and with the inside in the technology of the idea were steve led with you know what's it feel like to look like you know so. much more technical much more marketing where we are one. in one recent one. was.
9:09 pm
in 1940 jobs the king of marketing unleashes a groundbreaking advertising campaign this is to promote his newest creation the legendary macintosh a rampart against the r. well in world of the giant i.b.m. after the macintosh nothing would ever be the same again simpler operating features new design the most appears and the graphics interface those little windows that make life so much easier these innovations combined with software developed by microsoft like excel and word make the mag an overwhelming success in fact bill gates becomes a key figure in promoting the mac for years now it's a great machine it's a step forward in terms of the way it uses graphics and the speed of. business machine that a lot of people are going to be able to afford that's a very very useful machine there was
9:10 pm
a lot of collaboration there was microsoft drugs really great. things for the for the muck you know excel came out 1st on the mat the atmosphere was fine when he came i remember the 1st couple times remember that we were not competitors at all at that point they were our allies and helping making the macintosh so we got along very well with them they were similar to us in many ways. welcome to the macintosh software dating game. software ceos can i please ask you to introduce yourself in a power of the of the dating game hosted by jones the contestants of the software producers who contributed to the success of the my name is bill gates i'm chairman of microsoft and during 1984 microsoft expects to get half of its revenues
9:11 pm
for macintosh. behind the smiling facade steve jobs place the king and treats bill gates like a vassal for making the numbers 3 describe your ideal relationship with apple. will be so in our software independently so the key thing is that apple gets a lot of consistent standard machines out there quickly i spent the whole time 2 days in a y. e with bill being ignored we were treated like some crappy little it was like the most oh it was horrible we went for a walk bill and i went for a walk all the way to diamond head and back on the beach talking about how screwed we were like which is what i'm going to do lotus going to kill us we are so screwed we had were processed into excel were just like we're just excel sat an extra because they were just bonus offer it. bill gates is bitter but retains his foresight the monks were known graphics interface
9:12 pm
represents the future of personal computer use without a qualm he makes his move. you know i didn't trust bill gates you know while we were working on the macintosh ed was one of the 1st people apple to catch on to the fact that microsoft was cloning the macintosh they were making their own version of the macintosh operating system. i was always on the phone with a fellow who was in charge of microsoft's application software he was asking me questions about how the macintosh system software work that he didn't need to know to do what he was doing so i kind of caught on to the idea hey they're copying the mac. i told steve he wasn't worried about it at all job's is in reached when he learns that microsoft is launching a new operating system windows there was a pretty strong disagreement on windows game you know then that was probably of all of the things that are applicable to in the south was the that was the looks like
9:13 pm
a little upset out for the most and i'm so glad people so they're so the lawyers. and to some of them certainly you know i'm sure upset steve to some some extent. he was very upset and his 1st reaction was get bill gates down here tomorrow and i thought well boy you can't just call your competitor down it might take a week or something but i was amazed or was there the very next day. i was very impressed by bill gates because there was an extremely angry steve jobs in there and there are maybe 8 or 10 other apple people but just bill from microsoft you know entourage you know no one there with angry steve jobs down i'm just yelling at him you betrayed us how could you how could you be traitorous and bill gates as cool as can be said beck well steve that's one way of looking at it i
9:14 pm
have another way of looking at it he knew that the. graphical user interface was the future of computing ever so if you wanted to be to remain in you know dos was everything dos was huge but he knew that if he didn't do windows he'd be out of business. bill gates goes on the offensive job's already had a taste of this when renewing licensing for basic which he quipped apple 2 still cupertino is best selling computer it's the end of their collaboration now it's open warfare they have a go she asian and bill held out for a extremely high price that he didn't expect to get. and steve sell trapped and so he paid bill what bill asked he overpaid for the contract extension of. the microsoft basic they made so much money from
9:15 pm
that apple contract that they devoted the excess money the money they never expected to get to creating an international business we always talk about companies plane cats it's a chess game well everybody else was playing charts but always playing 3 dimensional chess he already had his move on another board already calculated from 3 moves on the previous board so if you look at the fact that microsoft more than half of microsoft's business is now outside of america that wouldn't have happened without apple. the. gates increasing success job's becomes even more of a megalomaniac the world's no revolves around him he creates his own personality cult the machine he's he has and it literally recognizes him as it's.
9:16 pm
a great. list in the show it is well it's going to do. that i introduce them then. speed. oh i think if you talk to a lot of people on the mac team they will tell you. it was the hardest they've ever worked in their life some of them will tell you it was you know the happiest they've ever been in their life but i think all of them will tell you that it is certainly one of the most intense and cherished experiences they will ever have an . idea so. you know it's. some of those things you you are not sustainable for some people.

to help astronauts working on board the space station those are the headlines i'll be back with for you in a little over 25 minutes here on al-jazeera but now let's get you back to face to face. a difficult and move curio leader those close to steve jobs describe him as unapologetically pragmatic a dictator who ruled by instinct more than loyalty he believed in very small groups of people being questioned the greatness and that was in part because he felt that he could all. lead i have felt people at most and so why not lead the best handle so he was constantly trying to figure out who is the best ever you know i was fired by steve jobs 3 times i was fired because i was kept
9:22 pm
dropping out of the best. i'm john sculley brother of apple in 1903 steve jobs lures joan scully away from pepsi cola to become c.e.o. of apple with this legendary phrase you want to keep selling sugar water all your life or do you want to come with me and change the world based on what offers the perfect do you do to mediocre mac sales combined with jobs increasingly to run ical counted to the honeymoon is soon over. it came down to eventually on the board a war between john sculley and steve jobs and in the end because steve jobs had actually burned out so many people and created so much animosity and fear about himself when the board came to
9:23 pm
a vote it was almost like the entire company voted that would they would rather not have steve jobs around anymore. tell us about your departure from that. it was very painful i'm not even sure i want to talk about it. what can i say i had the wrong guy that was stolen. and. he destroyed everything i spent 10 years working for and a friend of mine was working at apple that day the day that steve left and they were all called out of their offices and they all assembled down on the in the parking lot and sat on the curb and everything and they were. told our one of our you know our founder steve jobs is leaving the company and nobody care they're like good good we can get our work done with all of this craziness and madness and nobody cared. for steve jobs his eviction from apple in 1985 it feels like the
9:24 pm
tragic end of a love story he has been robbed of his child soon afterward using his own money he creates a new company next he is going to prove to everyone that he doesn't need outpolling and will continue to revolutionize the world of computers in his own mind he was the sole genius behind apple stores but we got it right now. thanks to mr because he needed friends he needed people to help. microsoft never did anything for me. but they didn't oppose next either you know bill didn't seem next as a factor. he didn't see he didn't seem next as good as being evil having the potential for success and so he didn't have to oppose it.
9:25 pm
first thing to look at in this product is user interface that's perhaps the most important thing about this product this is the user interface of windows 2.0 of windows really sex in the late eighty's after a basic and dos bill gates wanted his new operating system windows to become the standard system worldwide roland hansen is the man who made bill gates the software industry's number one media figure and it's also due to this marketing wizard that windows the graphics into fees which would conquer the world owes its name. we realized that the opinion really not they were calling these gurus none of these writers were calling them goodies anymore they were calling them all windowing systems because they were creating windows on the screen. personal holy crap if
9:26 pm
these are all windowing systems there's only one name we can be we have to be microsoft windows. well windows 95 is so easy even a talk show host figured out. windows was an affront. to jobs windows was an insult to jobs. distant relative of mine windows in just 10 years is installed in almost all computers on the market gaining planetary success with windows $95.00 gates and the p.c. definitively dethrone the mac. if you make i've grown man cry. windows was
9:27 pm
a way to move everything that he wanted to do forward and it was the foundation for everything that followed. that was one of the windows 98 came out real revolution personal computer windows as you point out as are 90 percent of the computers around the world i mean today still is a phenomenal fact. and i don't see that changing anytime soon with the fantastic success of windows 95 the geek from seattle becomes the must of software and also the richest man in the world interviewed at the time by robert cringely steve jobs expresses his contempt in a few stinging words he describes what caused the break between him and his old wife the only problem of microsoft is they just have no taste they have absolutely no taste and. that means is that i don't mean that in a small way i mean in the big way. so i guess. i am saddened not by
9:28 pm
microsoft's success i have no problem with their success they've earned their success for the most part i have a problem with the fact that they just make really 3rd rate products their products have no spirit to them. the steve decided that. maybe he had gone too far so he called he called bill up on the phone to apologize and he said he said bill. you know i saw the documentary you know i think i think maybe maybe i shouldn't have said that publicly about about having no tastes and and bill said well thank you steve you know our really want to thank you for doing that i think you went too far and then bill said and then steve said but it's true you know. you
9:29 pm
have no. i think i should've said it publicly but you know it's true and bill said steve i may have a taste but you said my whole company as though it's case. after the failure of next and by the success of his wife bill gates jobs gets back on his feet by investing in pixar a computer animation film company that would become a good mine and as usual he takes food credit for it. but when i 1st met ed catmull who ran the computer division of lucas film who i founded pixar with we did it together. and showed me what they were working on and i was i was blown away in the graphics were you know years beyond anything i'd ever seen before and he told me of his dream to make the 1st computer animated feature film and i bought into that dream both sort of emotionally and financially and we
9:30 pm
found a pixar it's just wrong you know it's just wrong that's the part of the marketing story that he sold about himself which is a good story but it's just wrong he's not pixar these the money of pixar he seductively narcissistic articulate something just not right there but. whenever he wants to sell some boy does he do it including himself in 1995 toy story is the 1st fully computer running mate of film to become a blockbuster it paves the way for picks on his continued success propelling a triumphant steve jobs to center stage once again and here is where steve did something he was really good at he grabbed the moment. and he took the company public. based on nothing we had basically no cash. we just had this movie and then
9:31 pm
your critics it was going to be good and he took this is where he can sell something right he took that idea and sold it to pixar public became a billionaire overnight 10 years after job's departure apple still hasn't recovered the company is on the verge of bankruptcy one last card to play the return of the wonder boy apple appoints jobs i see and by since former failing company next when he came back to apple in 996 he was a much more mature much better you know he'd gone through a success of one company with a failure of another so he had left his youthful craziness behind it. i think is one of the greatest turnarounds in the history of of any industry in any country anywhere to have a man come back to a company that is really going down very rapidly. and very bad shape and
9:32 pm
then pull off that success that he did something happen that that that did changed and what i believe it was was that for the 1st time it was his money next it was his money he was losing. at apple it was arthur rock's money you know it was the it was the public's money it was wall street's money it wasn't real money. to his return to apple steve jobs back into mind develops a new plan of action an occasion to make an amazing the known to his adoring public and i'd like to announce one of our 1st partnerships today a very very meaningful one and that is one with microsoft. the discussions actually began because there was some. patent disputes
9:33 pm
and rather than now i know. rather than now repeating history i'm extremely proud of both companies that they have resolved these differences in a very very professional way and i happen to have a special guest with me today via satellite downlink and if we could get him up on the stage right now. that i've done in my career below was genuinely happy when steve came by i think he recognized and felt. that losing apples as a successful company wouldn't be good for the industry and so and i think that was. that was when the relationship became closer and our relationship stayed close bill didn't do a favor for steve what bill did was microsoft had
9:34 pm
a successful business selling macintosh applications they were making a profit selling macintosh applications if apple went out of business the back software business at microsoft would go out of business too. so he had a franchise to protect now the fact that steve jobs was sort of crawling you know made it better bill gates has another motive for coming to steve jobs 8 the antitrust lawsuit pending against microsoft over its 10 year windows monopoly. i'm here to share my story and answer questions about microsoft and the p.c. industry. i hope that my testimony helps the court to resolve the issues in this case that would be bill. especially after the trust battle. really. the day to day part of the company was really.
9:35 pm
getting to be very hard on him and that that microsoft was so big and so successful that it was a time that he could move on and go on to something else. as gates steps of selling job's clients to new heights he adopts a new concept the ad campaign think different i return to his original idea of simplicity. the pain i most respect about apple is they have found a way to make complex things something and that was the think different campaign thing different really got you the 1st but then when you went to really explored aapl. it was different. a brilliant marketing idea for the i mock the new home
9:36 pm
computer that gives its users the feeling of being special set apart from the standardized world of the p.c. . then he said ok i could build macintosh this forever but that would be boring so we're going to create the digital hub strategy and we're going to create the i pod in the i phone and the touch pad and everything and they're going to connect through computers but the computer is only about. if we're going to carry their computers around and that's the strategy 497-9899 when they came up with that so that he could do what he did best which was designed brand new products so that steve jobs is that it's like i am an alchemist i am a magician. i am going to make this rabbit disappear i'm not just going to make a rabbit i made disappear i want to make the buttons move around right they like
9:37 pm
things that are magic. with the world steve jobs makes a new and unique contribution to our way of life a new digital wound with a single brand name that means innovation design and user friendly nasty note always true of microsoft products. the big change would is the i pod. steve song use an impi 3 player do a lot of them around for 2 years for the audio but they were reserved for techies and so apple created an a better music player that was better because of the ease of use and then they had to find a way to feed it and in doing so of course. they took the record
9:38 pm
companies that claim it was you know they they they said they stole the music business from the record companies because the record companies thought this is kind of interesting but it's not going to mean anything it's nothing you know this is no big deal apple told the record companies. that their goal in the 1st year was to sell a 1000000 music downloads. they sold a music a 1000000 music downloads in the 1st week. and sold 100000000 in the 1st year. they sold a 1000000000 in the 1st 2 years and the music business has changed forever and the record companies say what is that what and where did that come from. an i pod. a phone. and an internet communicator. an i pod.
9:39 pm
the iphone defining steve jobs as a modern visionary able to satisfy every consumer need and desire. confronted with counsel perhaps he realizes his days a number no time to lose to make his mark in history apple is going to reinvent the phone he was our running a company that had gone off and done some really amazing things and was no longer in this sort of i'm in the shadow of a bill gates about the shadow of microsoft apple's become this enormously successful company apple's those more business when i really have all those more business and i phones and microsoft those in total business and they're the most valuable company in the in the world now steve jobs didn't change the world steve jobs capitalized on a lot of things bill changed the world bill made software what it is today if bill had created the standards you know imma stop us windows and was very
9:40 pm
dogmatic at making sure those standards took hold we wouldn't have the technology we have today and i'm talking globally i'm not talking of the united states globally he impacted the world in terms of what he did with software. he decided to do the same frame and form for perry. this is my last you know. and it's the middle of this year in july that i moved from being a full time employee at microsoft working full time at the foundation be the 1st time since i was 17 that i'd want to have my full time microsoft job far from the realm of high tech rivalry bill gates known chooses to help alleviate suffering in the world the foundation he had with his wife melinda makes this billionaire the most generous for them through best in history he keeps
9:41 pm
a vigilant tie on microsoft but today the dreams he no choose link to humanitarian causes is a go down in history as the world's greats once it was no doubt about no one come closer and so i think for anybody else whether of steve jobs or whoever your view of bill changed a little bit when you saw what a good job he was doing i mean it wasn't like some guys screwing around with rock stars and occasionally showing up at a charity fundraiser because it really focused you know like achievable goals you know why about malaria no big deal you know things are just amazing right. what individual in the history of money has devoted $20000000000.00 to anything. no one would give bill gates so he's you know plays to win a place to win. steve never got their state never give a penny pincher i once had a conversation with steve much later after bill gates retired from microsoft and he
9:42 pm
was doing what i thought was great stuff that trying to eradicate diseases in 3rd world and stuff and i said well you know even though bill gates on a wrecked the technology industry for a decade or 2 you got to be proud of what he's doing now and steve looked at me and said what do you mean distributing is ill gotten gains you know us and he wasn't ready to give him all that much credit for that. these steve jobs never missed a chance to insult his old enemies like these awful commercials that made p.c. users and critics say something positive for the p.c. ok easy p.c. you are a wizard with numbers and you dress like a gentleman you see well. i guess you are a little better creative stuff thank you even though it's pleasing to my own which . maybe twice. in 2007 the 2 giants come face to face for the last media event pasta
9:43 pm
confrontation has at last given way to peaceful rival. first i called jobs because i thought he'd be the hardest to get and he said bill does it i will do it but we have to keep it i want to keep it on a high level i don't want to just be a fight was the greatest misunderstand between you and your relationship and about eat each other what would you say would be we've kept our marriage secret for over a decade now and i do our competitors in certain ways we watch the american way right the commercials and you get annoyed at each other from there i know i have to confess i like p.c. guy but yeah he's great i know you know that i want our to those you know the art of those commercials is not to be me but it's actually for the guys to like each other. on. their.
9:44 pm
p.c. guys p.c. guys great i like it's not a big one. on his mother loves of this mother but i just i have the bills still viewed. as kind of a freak and he's fascinated by you know that people say why did you let. steve treat you that way and bill than even though he was being treated a certain way he was just watching this and saying who is this guy you know i don't know how does this work. is there an algorithm here i don't because i don't get it . with steve jobs health deteriorating bill gates paid a last visit to his longtime rival and friend it would be a bittersweet and the last chapter in a legendary june. after a lifetime of innovation steve jobs died on october the 5th 2011.
9:45 pm
bill gates and steve jobs high tech giants who revolutionized the way we live work and play. as earaches pros prominent figures of the 20th century and how life will raise influenced the course of history that was acumen revolution communist the way feel castro is a fee to lease the not a communist that just really wanted his country che wanted international revolution became a point when the relationship came to an end the icons of revolution who changed the course of latin american politics. and fidel castro face to face on al-jazeera .

percent will be taxed at 30 percent additionally the remaining $300000000000.00 of goods and products from china that was being taxed from september 1st at 10 percent will now be taxed at 15 percent this was trump's retaliation after beijing announced a few hours earlier that china will tax an additional $75000000000.00 worth of u.s. goods also starting next month that came at the end of an already tumultuous day earlier friday the u.s. president tweeted and order to american businesses move supply chains out of china immediately trump does not in fact have the power to command u.s. businesses to leave china but he does have leverage he can encourage them he cannot give them government contracts for example that if they're buying things from the government or strine a sell things through the government but no he can't he can't stop that the tweet
9:52 pm
still spooked investors the dow jones closed more than 2 percent down the tech heavy nasdaq index was off by 3 percent both signs of the importance of the chinese market to u.s. companies all of this comes at a particularly vulnerable time in trump's presidency a growing number of economists forecast a u.s. recession on the horizon driven partly by the white house trade policies trump has responded by blaming everyone but himself i think the word recession is a word that's inappropriate because it's just a word that the. the church people are going to be kind of certainty. in the media are trying to build up because they'd love to see a recession trump also took on president it aim at the chairman of the u.s. federal reserve the central bank lowered interest rates last month but not as much as trump hoped that earned its chairman this comparison from trump who is our bigger enemy jay powell or chairman c.

the chinese leader president trump will spend the weekend in france at the g. 7 meeting with fellow leaders of major industrialized nations the white house has asked concerns of a global recession to be front and center and no doubt the u.s. china trade escalation will dominate those discussions castro al-jazeera washington pully lone is a political economist and managing director of asia analytical she joins us now via skype from hong kong pauline this spot appears to be hurting china more than the us sooner or later someone's got to bend who do you think is going to blink 1st and is there more to do with this than just trade. well it seems that washington has already blinked by the fact that they have being deplaned some terrorists until december that they said they were going to impose
9:54 pm
right of way and the other things that go in it seems that the government ministration had been expecting china to fold much earlier and china has played along i believe by giving the impression that. what we have to come to an agreement with we just need a few more things to fix a few more things and then suddenly we've come to the point to the chinese have turned around and said you can't turn red line we're not going to go any further and out there playing hardball tunnel to success is that washington has directed really donald tusk says that he fears the trade wars break trust between g 7 members why can't 2 sides sit down to go their way to a deal is someone playing for time here now so i come back to what i said if you want to is there more to this than just trade. there is much more than just trade i don't think it's ever been just
9:55 pm
a part export and tariffs for some time now it's been a race a very quiet and subtle race but to raise a competition on the left foot political dominance it's about american perceptions of china as an all round strict rather than just a rule spending competitor intreated comus and all the chinese side it's about the chinese the constant china's worry that the time will come when washington will see it as a strategic competitor and therefore will do everything it can to contain its economic growth so that has been building up for some time and trade is just the starting point the trade war is already impacting many factories and farmers sit negatively affecting the prices of the. stocks when will it begin to bite ordinary consumers people like you and me it will
9:56 pm
depend on how quickly the terrorists actually. translate into prices on high street. the decision about training is that it's how you buy something you don't say this burned out that cost me. cause a dollar in production costs $2.00 in tariff so i won't buy you look at the bananas and discuss the dollars cannot afford it so well that tell us hits and the consumer is looking at goods it will depend on the affordability so indifferent the color is the american economy the japanese economy the chinese economy it depends on how well placed the consumer each of those economies are still handing to bear in the high prices from the tariffs will always good store to put
9:57 pm
in many thanks indeed for being with us there in hong kong while other global challenges on the table range from the economy to climate change our diplomatic energy james bays is live for us now in beer it's james to what extent is this trade route between china and the u.s. going to dominate proceedings there the g 7. well the g 7 is built for discussion about the global economy that was the original purpose of it and clearly people are very worried about the effect of the global economy you just need to look at the slump in stock prices that place at the end of trading on friday and it's not just about that trade war it's about why you to trade wars in other places even between g 7 countries themselves the new digital services tax in france which targets companies like amazon and google u.s. companies has angered the u.s.
9:58 pm
and president trump and he has threatened retaliation he even suggested higher taxes on french wine imported into the u.s. we've been hearing from the european council president donald tusk about that idea of taxes on french wine and he had a tough response. i will not venture wine with a. genuine determination for many reasons. end of the day you stand by france if the us impose a star if. you will respond in kind the law think we need and. confrontation with our best ally the united states but of course . this is not our initiative this this. struggle but. we have to be radials over there and we are ready james president trump got
9:59 pm
straight down to work upon his arrival there in beirut he went to meet his host president mccall for coffee how did that go what was your reading of the body language. well i mean i think this is quite important because of that threat of war among all the different things that we're going to discuss here of tension over trade between france and the u.s. and certainly president mycroft is concerned about that and that's why i think he's been bending over backwards to try and help president trump through this summit we know president trump doesn't really like events like this he seems in recent days to be in a particularly prickly mood so president had him 1st before all the other leaders sat down together perhaps to try and get them both on the same page remember that he had to persuade president trump to come to this summit according to white house
10:00 pm
sources and also has inserted into the discussions a discussion on global trade that wasn't there before at the u.s. request so they are bending over backwards to accommodate the u.s. president that doesn't mean of course that president trump won't either say or tweet something that doesn't help the atmosphere the leaders of other non g 7 nations have been invited by president mccraw to this summit what are they doing there. well it's become quite normal i think for some of these summits for example the g. 20 a few months ago you had something similar our other guest nations invited to bring their view on global problems because yes the g. 7 are this very powerful very rich group of nations book clearly they're trying to deal with the world's problems and so they need cooperation from other countries and it goes back i think to the agenda that fronts.
