6:01 am
they were every other beer i have drunk. these are two colossus. brendan: any sort of tasteless pills that you have drunk anywhere in the world is owned by one of these two brewers. ahead -- -- i'm going and miller, yeah. they're going to try to buy them. neara huge transaction, $100 billion. right now our top headlines. here is vonnie quinn on the fed. vonnie: federal reserve policymakers are beginning their two-day meeting today. by tomorrow afternoon they will decide whether to raise interest rates for the first time since 2006. goldman sachs tells bloomberg there would not be as a prize if the fed takes action. >> if things go badly, and things intensify from here, in that case there would be a reason to push it into 2016.
6:02 am
futures contracts show there is a 32% chance of a rate hike. ready -- as the leading republican candidates get ready to debate tonight, polls show the tide is turning for donald trump. he is up 13 percentage points in a month. none of the other 15 candidates is close. they will debate tonight on cnn. viewers will see two changes. carly fiorina is taking part, and the candidates will be allowed to challenge one another directly instead of just answering moderators' questions. fiat chrysler has reached a tentative agreement with united auto workers. they revealed little about the deal. they did say it eventually does away with the two-tiered wage structure.

6:04 am
brian, was this a surprise to mr. abe? brian: i think it is going to be a surprise. time is running out. for 2.5had abenomics years. demographics are ticking time bomb. tom: within the next stage of abenomics,-- of depreciation buttresses up against any rating downgrade, doesn't it? brian: that was a big part of the first half of abenomics. he says he is halfway through. of course, you have the big boj meeting coming up in october, and a lot of economists think we will see another round of easing. that will be the effort to push the yen down further. brendan: is there any sense in japan that a is ready to -- that abe is ready to deploy the
6:05 am
ofond and third levels abenomics? brian: he has talked about it. he has another two years in office, and he will focus on the economy and shift away from national security. we are still waiting to hear exactly what he is going to do, but it has to be deregulation and the tpp agreement, too. tom: brian, thank you so much. a downgrade for a major nation, japan. they are two major beer companies. smaller sab miller will be taken up by colossus anheuser-busch in best. matthew campbell is in london. he has never had a bud, never had a miller, but really this is about heineken. there are three players. explain to me how heineken fits into these meetings of these two
6:06 am
other companies. : really only two of them are in play when it comes mergers, and that is abi and sab. when people talk about consolidation, it really is abi and sab that they talk about. it looks like this deal is starting to come together. both of long-term for these companies, our margins under pressure as people move away from the basic pills that they sell? matt: one of the problems particularly in the western world, more people are treating wine, and sort of joe sixpack is sixpackg to pick up his of bud. he might be buying craft here. some of the assumptions of these mega brands are going down. vonnie: will we need to see
6:07 am
regulatory support from europe and the u.s.? how does this work? matt: this is going to be assuming a deal can be agreed, a very big antitrust challenge in the europe -- in europe and in the u.s.. people will be paying attention, the media will be paying attention. i think there will be an army of antitrust lawyers around this. tom: i agree. the regulators dive in and the lawyers are employed. to give you some perspective, in employees, sab miller, 65,000 employees. they have both been great in the stock market. sab miller for the last 10 ev up, up 14% per year, inb almost 20%. this is not dinosaurs mating. brendan: i am fascinated that
6:08 am
this is the way this part of the industry works this way -- you can buy budweiser, but it is marketed as prom a in brazil. it is the same swill everywhere. tom: you are just beaming. brendan: it is bad beer. tom: we need to go to two people who live on budweiser. it is upon us. janet yellin will do this, that, or the other thing. we will bring you separate coverage. kathleen hays and michael mckee with me. we have set us very smart people, one drinking miller, one drinking bud. drew matus is the u.s. economist at ubs. is at the same shop. bud or miller, which one? craft beer people at the table. julian? julian: bud.
6:09 am
someone drink's beer, not swill. what did it signal to see yields shift and a better tone yesterday afternoon? there ist signals that hope, that there is a bottoming process in the market, and in a lot of ways china may have been the first fed rate hike, and the surprise now over and we are transitioning into what the fed is or is not going to do. tom: i am thrilled that you are both with us. is janet yellen catching up with ubs? >> i think it is difficult to think of the fomc as a single person. it is a cluster of dots. -- not necessarily a cluster of dots, there are different views. but it is not as though there are two competing ideas. there are 17 competing ideas,
6:10 am
and they are all being talked about. we do not even know what the probability of a rate move is. vonnie, you said 32%. if you look at the 2-year note, it is higher than 32%. higher commercial rates -- there are all these different ways to look at what the probability is. because we are moving in a range, it is less certain. say 17 opinions, but the three top opinions carry more weight, right? stan fischer, janet yellen, and dudley? drew: i would say with the rest of them, there are people who are very well regarded. the question is, how much do financial conditions matter? that is the only question because they talked about the model driven. it was no model i know of that the fed would used that would say we are going through our natural rate of unemployment estimate. can you look at what
6:11 am
has happened and say markets have already had themselves inoculated against what is happening thursday? drew: if the fed does not go, there will be a response in markets, and that response will be something that would hurt the rest of the world, not help it. if we think about what it might do to currencies, anything that suggests -- if the fed makes a mistake and suggests we are not going along time, that is a problem for everyone else. emanuel mentioned that the two year yield is 2.8047. signaling optimism on a better american economy. coming up -- yes, we are counting down to the fed decision -- janet yellen decides
6:12 am
at 2 p.m. tomorrow -- we will be there. hays, michael mckee, at myself with some terrific guests to give you some measured perspectives. we will do that at 2:00 p.m. at the news conference and into the afternoon tomorrow. with drew matus and julian emanuel this morning, it is "bloomberg surveillance." stay with us. ♪

tom: it is decidedly an international today fed meeting. hong kong -- an international two-day fed meeting. hong kong will pay attention. looking at a better stock market in china this morning, coming off those recent lower set of lows. vonnie: standard & poor's has
6:15 am
caused japan's credit rating to be cut from -- to a minus from a plus. inflation will probably not change things for two to three years. the maker of budweiser believes it is miller time. sab miller says anheuser-busch inbev plans to make a takeover offer. inbev made says ab an approach but no offer is on the table. authorities say at least 12 people died in flash floods in a town off the utah arizona border. one is still missing. women and children were in two vehicles swept away by floodwaters. they lived in a community that -- thehome-based for a home base for a polygamist sect. those are top headlines. tom: thank you so much. the news flow is amazing. vonnie: just as we come on the
6:16 am
air every morning. tom: there is a discussion tonight? vonnie: republican candidates gathering tonight for the second debate in the 2016 season. phil mattingly, this is more of a head-to-head. how will this impact the front runners? most interesting about tonight's debate is you have two tears. to show people who have they can attack the front runner, donald trump, and people need to make an impression primarily on donors. you have seen top tier candidates drop into the low single digits. you are talking about scott walker, marco rubio, chris christie, and i am told from campaign aides they are getting phone calls from donors and supporters saying you need to show support -- you need to show -- we need tome
6:17 am
pay attention to how people go after donald trump and how donald trump response. that will be the other side story. put fourcan we candidates to rest after the debate? will anyone make it out of the undercard? phil: no. anything is possible. carly fiorina proved that if you have a head and shoulders above anybody else performance in the undercard, you can move up. she is in third place in a poll that came out an hour ago. she was in local scene digits -- she was in low single digits. as we saw with rick perry, we are getting to the point now where the money starts running out and supporters need somebody else to go to. the idea that someone will catch fire, i think it is losing luster. the reaganat library, i do not know if you have seen kathleen park. there is a wonderful op-ed from
6:18 am
"the washington post," wonderful treatment by kathleen parker. there is a little bit of romance there from ms. parker, phil mattingly. where will jake tapper find the romance tonight? phil: i do not know that jake is going to look for the romance. about tonight's moderators. this is why i think a lot of us are excited about this debate. you have three of the best questioners, people with respect, with deep knowledge that are prepared to go after people not just on politics and of thefireworks bombastic donald trump attacks, but actually on policy. that is what you want to hear.
6:19 am
brendan: how often do you expect to hear the words "ronald reagan" at the ronald reagan library on the stage tonight? has: i think john kasich already come out yesterday and made multiple kind -- made multiple comments. if you do not mention michael mention- if you do not ronald reagan in every sentence, i think your donors are angry and everybody is angry. there will be no shortage of can toents -- of no comparison oneself and ronald reagan. mattingly, thank you so much. we will be watching you all day for updates. do not miss a special one-hour "with all due respect" from the reagan library at 5:00 p.m. eastern time. this is "bloomberg surveillance ," on bloomberg television,

will bek carney watching washington, particularly at 2 p.m. tomorrow. thelinked last month on bank of england saying no flesh inflation, is no site to be seen. trend toward giving kids laptops and hoping it is going to work -- the general problem is that teachers are not very adept at using technology themselves. like most of us, they picked up the skills as they went along and are no better at students at coming up with productive ways to use computers.
6:24 am
both the kids and their teachers are wondering in the dark. i covered this four or five years ago where every country was coming up with a free laptop program. the formula always seemed a little suspect, which is child plus laptop plus fairy dust equals success. a report by the o's ecd -- by the oecd shows that it does not really help and in some cases it does harm. tom: drew matus is with us from ubs, and importantly, he had journalistic experience before and did not use a computer. at thesenior beer editor colby echo. "the colby echo." computers do not do it. the computers -- you guys are smart math guys, finance guys. computers are not a substitute
6:25 am
for textbooks. the kids come home and they use the ipad and i know that nothing happened at school. they did not learn anything. vonnie: it needs to be taught somehow, whether by computer or -- way, it is the newfangled in my opinion, of showing movies in class. julian: there is no substitute for human interaction. one of the things that we absolutely know is that there is in. evidence that students, if you take notes by hand, your attention skyrockets, versus typing notes on the computer. drew: those are the annoying people, the business students that sit behind you and type
6:26 am
very loudly. is there evidence that technology is not helping productivity? where computers could come in handy is that kids are not differentiated enough. you have everyone being taught through this medium, and you are you -- you are losing kids on the bottom end and the top end. so kids are bored. tom: very good, drew matus with us from ubs. this morning, vincent reinhart will join us in the 8:00 hour. good morning. ♪

tom: good morning, everyone. "bloomberg surveillance." a nice long day for me. really looking forward to a conversation with ray dalio, tonight at 6:00 p.m.
6:30 am
this is usually anticipated -- michael mckee and myself with ray dalio. we will speak of debt, of productivity. and most important way, ray dalio willett dress tonight the risk parity debate. this is a crucial debate. really looking forward to that. vonnie: we are also looking forward to the fed meeting, the fed not having raised interest rates since 2006. the question is whether policymakers will keep waiting for the fed's open market committee. tomorrow afternoon we will find out if rates will go higher. our financial markets ready? we asked the chief economist at goldman sachs. >> an additional argument for why they are not going to go, i think there will be some concern that the market is not prepared for it. we have already had a lot of financial market volatility. avarice the risk of an market reaction. vonnie: a new survey shows the
6:31 am
tide turning donald trump's way republicaning presidential candidates get ready to debate tonight. 39% of republican voters think trump is the party's best shot of winning the white house. he is turning off latinos. event yesterday, joe biden says that message will eventually fall flat. two trump and the stuff you are hearing on the other team, this is not just about democrat-republican, it is about a sick message. this message has been tried on america many times before. we always, always, always overcome it. candidates will debate tonight on cnn. viewers will see two changes on the first debate. carly fiorina is taking part,
6:32 am
and the candidates will be allowed to challenge each other directly. it is a deal that would bring together the two biggest year makers in the world. hasuser busch inbev proposed a takeover of sab miller. no offers on the table yet. sab miller is up as much as 23%. apple's ceo, tim cook, is talking about his decision to come out as gay. cbs' "late show with stephen colbert," and said he had a tremendous responsibility to do it. tim cook: it became so clear to me that kids were being bullied in school, discriminated against, and blamed by their own parents. i needed to do something. vonnie: he also defended his predecessor, steve jobs, in the wake of negative portrayals in books and movies. he said the steve jobs he knew
6:33 am
was an amazing human being. brendan: i need to bring this up. we have a lot of viewers who pay close attention to the beer debate we were having. mike mcdonough is the chief economist for bloomberg television's. televisionmberg and -- for bloomberg intelligence. he said it is impressive that sameiser can maintain the taste and consistency across the world. valuable analysis from bloomberg intelligence. this is a big move given the volume of trading. julian emanuel is on the desk from ubs. if we are going to worry about liquidity in the treasury's market, today would be the day to worry about it. should we be worried? julian: in the bigger picture, liquidity has been withdrawn as a function of post-financial
6:34 am
crisis landscape, but that is also a function of markets becoming more volatile. normal in front of a decision like the fed to do with less liquidity like we had yesterday. brendan: drew matus, what about in corporate debt? this is something broker-dealers have been sounding the alarm on for some time. liquidity is a lot lower. i think we have seen the post retail sales report last october, it did not look good. the fed has been trying to figure out why that has been happening. i do not think they have come up with an answer. it probably makes them nervous, but it is not going to be the decisive factor. tom: i have never seen navelgazing like this before. with the two year yesterday, we go up 2.80, we get back to where
6:35 am
we were in 2011, 2012. they care belief that what the markets think? is a convenient excuse for why it might not go tomorrow. it is a close call. i think the economic conditions have been met. we are through from where the fed thought we would be, we are below the natural rate. inflation is about where we thought it would be year-end. it is just not really low. tom: i want you to frame, drew matus, and optimistic house versus what london heard from jane had to us -- from jan hot cs. betweenthe distinction an optimistic house and a more
6:36 am
cautious house as we go to this usting? drew: some of believe the economy will return to working the way it used to. that is not to say that the longer-term rate and the economy makes sense the way it used to, but once things begin to work again, the economy will find its own footing. theink this boils down to fact that at ubs we think zero rates are part of the problem right now. if you wonder why the economy cannot get off this rut that we rut, it is 2.5%, 3% because we are at zero. brendan: we have been talking all morning about the perdition the terminal makes based on fed , and right now they are at 32%. what do you think of the argument that larry summers made yesterday, which is that the fed has moved in the past when the confidence is only at 70%. drew: i have not heard any fed member tell me what the
6:37 am
probability is as we go through tomorrow. are going to get to a 37.5% or 37 .5-basis point hit rate on the target. 32.5if you only get the between reserves and where you can get the rate up to? there is the reason that -- there is a reason the fed is moving in a range. they do not think they can hold the target otherwise. if they could do a point estimate, they would. vonnie: what about oil companies that have been issuing a lot of debt, like glenn core, for example? do youre you floating or go into a fixed rate product? there are all these kinds of variables. i think the u.s. economy is probably less exposed to a rate hike now than it ever has been in its history, in terms of negative versus positive changes.
6:38 am
what is the bid right now? how in the game are people, or is everybody off on the sidelines? julian: people are very hedged. people are skeptical. to the upside, absolutely. there is a lot of psychological damage that has been done over the last month. there is really a bolt from the blue. what do you list to make the market move higher? julian: it will be a clue as to how the next six months are going to proceed. tom: julian emanuel and drew matus with us. brendan: we know that tim cook's apple has a lot of cash. what about the rest of the s&p 500? that is the subject of today's "single best chart." good morning. ♪
6:39 am
6:40 am
6:41 am
tom: good morning, everyone. "bloomberg surveillance." futures negative. qualityw, a higher single best chart. it is beer free. here is brendan greeley. brendan: we do not know what will happen after 2:00 tomorrow,
6:42 am
but we know that it helps to prepare war chests. we just lifted this straight from julian emanuel at ubs. this is cash balance as a percent of assets. you have the s&p 500 baseline in yellow at the bottom. financials are higher in blue text. julian, i read your note. rule of 15.ugh the julian: the fed is changing the way investors are going to think about cash on balance sheets. if you think about it, since the start of the financial crisis, at a 0% interest rate, cash has had no value. in a more volatile environment, cash also has value. for us, we like those sectors, as you mentioned -- tech, health care, financials -- that have lots of cash, in this case 15% as a percentage of assets. of cash,so the old use
6:43 am
putting it in a coffee can as a rainy day fund? julian: it is we are seeing if this morning. we are seeing m&a announced in a volatile environment because companies can afford to be opportunistic. vonnie: are companies also waiting to see the whites of the eyes of inflation before investing? julian: to a certain extent, they are. drew and i have talked about this a lot. and easier decision -- could have been buyback and m&a as a use of cash? as interest rates rise, we expect that psychology to turn as well. brendan: the outlier is really tech stocks. it makes me wonder -- way above 20% there, the white at the top -- that is not prudent use of a rainy day fund. that is not quite sure where to invest it and hold it abroad, right? julian: exactly. that is lots and lots of offshore cash, which is why the m&a phenomenon has not in just a
6:44 am
u.s. phenomenon. we expect more" or m&a as we look ahead to 2016. vonnie: what were the companies below the white line? julian: the bevy of consumer type companies, people whose businesses are less volatile, so they can use cash differently. tom: drew matus, in economic textbooks, what julian's talk me about is chapter 24, which nobody gets too. -- what julian is talking about is chapter 24, which nobody gets too. all the gains are going to corporations building cash -- not apple, but many other corporations -- and yet the wage gains are not there. are we so there as we go into this fed meeting? drew: one sign is that productivity is moving up. over time, that will be to what we call good wage gains. people are being rewarded for
6:45 am
using better workers, and that is usually good for consumers and for longer-term growth prospects. the other factor is that we have not had a tight labor market for quite some time. we forget how rapidly the unemployment rate dropped over the last six months. we are just read aging -- reaching where the fed was. "slack" -- was that invoke 12 months ago? zero measuring it in a rate environments -- people want to do buybacks and dividends and stuff like that because that is how you invest in a low rate environment. you try to shorten your duration. you lessen your duration when there is growth prospect brendan: when rates are moving higher. you say that productivity moves up -- what about a physical reverent hesitation of what happens with productivity and wages?
6:46 am
i could not call the chart up fast enough. this is wages remaining flat. how can we say in the future that this relationship will start moving together again? about au are talking very long-term relationship versus what tends to be something that moves over a shorter period of time. i have been calling the great financial crisis the dummy variable environment. if you build a model of the u.s. economy that includes the great financial crisis, you are going to be wrong. vonnie: the dummy variable environment? drew: instead, we will say that we cannot get the variable to work unless we put in a dummy variable. brendan: everything is just going to read -- here is what is --pening -- question mark and here it is happening again. --nie: a change of scenery "top photos."
6:47 am
gopro, after two years of being launched, a high-altitude weather balloon. it was launched near the grand canyon in 2013 and captured amazing footage, but it was lost after the launch. in arizona hiker found it. -- in arizona hiker found it. ablean: nobody used to be to do this part we are jaded by this because we have seen a lot of this since then, but that was just two years ago. nasa in 1974 could do the same thing. it will have to update. highertwo top photo -- wire artist kane peterson walked a tightrope at the eureka sky deck in melbourne. walk evert tightrope
6:48 am
a in the southern hemisphere. he walked between the two twin towers. the twin towers were still above us. can i say that those photos are so filtered that i almost say to myself psychologically, can you trust them? i am sure they are real, but we are so used to filtered fuld -- to filtered photos. brendan: i have a hard time made a hard time imagining how it will measure up to the documentary about that walk, which is extraordinary. vonnie: number one top photo, yesterday, the 75th anniversary of the battle of britain. there was a flyby with hurricane and spitfire planes. leader jeremy corbyn -- new labor leader jeremy corbyn was criticized for not using the

brazilian real cannot figure out what to do. but clearly a week or track -- the clearly a weaker track. here is vonnie quinn. vonnie: thousands of migrants are stranded on the serbian side of the border with hungary. the refugees are camping on a main highway that hungary closed yesterday. some are trying to sneak through the new razor wire fence, but those caught will be prosecuted. as are aimed at stopping migrants. target wants employees to shape up. adding activity trackers to improve worker fitness and reduce health care costs. tom: very good. the great what if at this critical juncture, the fed chairman is always confronted with this policy versus care for the global economy. intrudes.ew mediocre
6:54 am
part of the diversions between a glass half-full america and a more than parched emerging markets. what will be the market reaction at 12: 01 tomorrow? stan fischer plays an important part. you said earlier -- how does vice chairman fisher fit in the calculus that janet yellen faces? interesting thing is that janet yellen and stan fischer are not exactly in the same camp as to where the fed should moves. think stanople fischer is the one person who cares more about the global economy, but then when everyone was saying this will keep the fed from moving, the global economy, he said not so fast. he is a more complex individual than people give him credit for. he not so reflexive in thinking the rest of the world is moving,
6:55 am
so we have to. tom: he has been delivered. -- he has been delivered brazil ,arnage, quadratic movements and australian government shift as well. if you see the news flow -- drew: for every central bank that does not want us to move, there is a central bank that wants us to move. i do not know how they way the opposing central banks globally on watch it happen. an environment that is growing as fast as we are, the unemployment as low as it is, the interest rate that is offside on a global basis. brendan: what if we hold a rate hike and nobody comes? anybody who is holding dollar denominated debt of brazilian debt right now knows that it is then october. if not october, then december. why would this make a difference? drew: the argument for not going is the same argument for not
6:56 am
going three months from now. it is going to be the same argument for not going a year from now if we are still sitting at zero. there is always someone you are going to disrupt and someone you are going to upset. vonnie: not necessarily. we just had a couple weeks of heavy turmoil. drew: but what caused the heavy turmoil? you could argue it is because we are approaching a fed decision. tom: why can't they go one and done. buiter is adamant we should not do that. emanuel, that we should do this because it is what drew matus says come and we are going to sit here. it just does not work. it is not the kind of confidence inspiring type of activity, and it sends the wrong message, which clearly, given the economic data, is not the actual message in the u.s. tom: we could go on for another

things, maybe a decision does not matter but it does, why are we so wound up about this meeting versus a council of people like you who say look at the further trajectory? carl: because it can be significant implications if they make a policy mistake, arguably the most important central bank in the world and if they stumble it has global implications. tom: how do they stumble? tol: if they miscommunicated the market than the market expects a more aggressive send than what janet yellen has planned here that has applications into financial conditions and into the currency markets. this is the key thing to watch, in march when people were expecting the fed to go, we saw a strong dollar and janet yellen blinked and backed away. we are seeing the same thing if not more so in the current environment and she will save the dollar and other financial

when they are, they drink more wine. independent craft beers, and there has been an absolute explosion in the last few years. being bigger, and being able to survive in this environment. both of these companies were created by combining a lot of different brewers. do they find that helps or do people say, it is all the same beer? matt: that is a good question. some are voting with their feet going with more independent beers, which are made locally. some then get up by these big guys. there is a lot of gross to be found in sub-saharan africa, asia, and that is what this is all about, having a world spanning scale lsu to take advantage of the growth. the growth is not happening in places like north america. ,ichael: the deal was confirmed
8:05 am
but no details of the offer and as far as we know, they have not yet made a formal offer. the price is getting driven up. >> that is correct. what happens in the u.k. something is out there, so to speak, you have 28 days to make a formal offer. that clock has not started. as you can imagine, they are working very hard on putting together an offer with antitrust elements, equity cash, that they can take. campbell, thank you for joining us this morning from london. tom, you made an offer not long about eight to $10 for a sixpack. was that accepted? it was not.

8:09 am
monetary world here they are not working in a vacuum like arthur burns. michael: a lot of people have made that point in arguing the fed should be on hold their it saying you will mess up the rest of world if you raise interest rates. harded has been pushing back on that saying the mandate is to make monetary policy for the united states. so yes, they have a global impact. but can the rest of the world fairly ask them to put aside the best interest of the united states? diana: no, i was making a different point. the fed should be asking, related to the domestic economy acting entirely just looking at where the domestic economy in the u.s. -- it should have raised interest rates by now. developments

elsewhere in the world are going to drive its hand and in fact, to bed decision is going much less important for the u.s. economy for the rest of the world than other fundamental changes, in particular in china and japan. or we are thrilled to have you here as we go to our coverage. 2:00 p.m. tomorrow. futures are negative. without question, the number on the screen, the two year yield, .8027 with the surge yesterday. look backield as we any number of years. ♪

and of course we have got oil inventories from the government today. joining me from the cme out in chicago, yesterday, we had the eia report today. do you think we'll have a similar trajectory in terms of inventories? >> the number yesterday was out of the ballpark, well outside of in range analysts expect terms of a drawdown in supply. i think we will see more today, tomorrow,into the fed it will be fairly muted. near-term pressure, over the next few days and a week, into the outside, it is often so we see what happens with the fed tomorrow. notwithstanding,

even if you see a drawdown in inventories, we still have inventories running 100 million barrels above where they are seasonally at this level. you if you get a drawdown, have got a lot of inventory to work for. it.o question about the theme is, maybe the marketplace, the landscape has changed a little bit, where the drawdown's now will increase a and supply will be dwindling a bit. that is what the short-term marketplace in oil is telling us. julie: what he think -- the upside in the short term? there are still many funds out there that really still have -- even though we saw oil drop below and we had a massive lion coming in, if we do get some

8:21 am
do. how fast the dollar does -- goes up will actually determine which path we are taking. highly unlikely in our view that the fed will raise interest rates tomorrow. it would be uncharacteristically brave of them to do that given international turmoil. they could do with that for a long time in fact, but, they are likely to have the first hike i the end of this year. the pass a future interest rate increases in the u.s. would be determined by economic, financial, and critical developments elsewhere in the world. fascinatingt is because of course, it is october 17 for the next gdp report. on that, the world will turn? diana: chinese gdp growth has
8:22 am
already averaged just between 4% and 5% last year and so far this year. it does not look like it will accelerate further. but the important point to make here is unless the chinese situation turns into a crisis, a deflationary china is good news for america. it gives real income in the hands of the consumer and if they stop doing wasteful investment, it allows a more profitable investment here. tom: we see someone like citigroup catching up, moving from a 50-50 scenario global recession to a main scenario for next year. are you suggesting that at this meeting at 2:00 p.m. tomorrow, this fed is working in global recession? are we in it right now? diana: no.
8:23 am
i do not agree. a client actually asked me about that yesterday as well. have --oment, we do not you know ahead of the global financial crisis, we had a high conviction call that the global financial crisis will happen. we do not have the same high conviction call that we are down the route of another global recession and a crisis. on the contrary, there is a assibility, and we attached fairly high probability, going down the route of the deflationary boom, which be volatile and messy, but in that scenario, the u.s. does the best relative to the rest of the world, certainly in that adjustment. anyael: will there be clarity soon for investors? what do i do if i'm an investor tomorrow afternoon? clarity,ere will be

actually. for the remainder of this year and probably the first half of of likely a range outcomes will materialize that actually will determine the path for the global economy for the next five to 10 years. you attach a lot of importance on the fed meeting. i can understand and sympathize with that. coming up tomorrow. it is important. but i think other very important markets to watch out for, trying , it isre out which route first of all, what actually happens with the imf decision of whether they include the chinese currency in their currency basket or not. that is the key split in the road here the other forgotten economy that would be fundamental is japan. tom: we see that today. diane, thank you so much. london, sheva in

the chief economist for goldman sachs tells bloomberg he would not be surprised if the fed doesn't take action. >> financial conditions spill over and intensify from here. in that case, i think that would be a reason to push it to 2016. it is not my baseline but it is in -- not a crazy and outlier scenario. vonnie: a 32% chance of a rate hike. the talk of a deal that would bring together the world posse tita's biggest year makers. approaching miller about a takeover. there is no offer on the table so far. a takeover would create a company that controls about half of the year industries profits. shares are up about an -- 23% in london. shares of fedex are following this morning in the premarket. the operator posted quarterly earnings that missed estimates. also cut its full-year

>> no. we just heard the federal reserve is well before -- well below its goal. terms of hourly earnings and wages, we do not see that building. the external dimension is such that import prices are going down and as long as the dollar is appreciating, there is not a lot of pressure on the fed to act. tom: explain the why and the what in this debate. there are people who say, let's go raise rates now and there are people like carl saying, no, as you just said. what is the thing that divides those two camps? of the is the end summer. the way to think about it is, the first day at summer camp when you bring the kids out to the end of the dock and you tell them it will be really nice ones there in the lake, some jump right in. some of them just put their toes in the water. some of them stand there and
8:33 am
shiver. now.is them right they understand. they would like a positive funds rate, because they're nervous about being zero. they still want to be accommodated, but they can do that by raising rates gradually. it is just that the first time is really hard. it is historically hard. so the issue is, what is the shock of hitting the water? were convinced that market participants understood they would keep policy, needed for a long time, but not at a zero interest rate, they would be willing to tighten tomorrow. if they are not sure that market participants understand that they are worried about the shock -- tom: let me interrupt you. yields have come in, fractionally but nevertheless, lower yields in gold of nine dollars as well. , butuch of a reaction

every little bit here seems to be important. you were in charge of helping to put together the briefing book for members of the fed as they go into their meeting. you basically set out different options. here are the things you could do. argumente writing the for moving now, what would it be? >> it is pretty straightforward. the argument for moving is at the unemployment rate is in the most people's reasonable , thatte of unemployment there would be inflation pressures emerging if the rate marketes to fall, that participants are mostly prepared for the policy action, and that you want to keep in place and expectation. michael: what about for staying on hold? >> that is also easy. the dollar is appreciating. it has generally tightened.

markets in some sense have done a lot of the work for you, even as market participants do not expect policy action and that you are particularly concerned about the response of first policy actions. tom: how does the fed synthesize the fact that there are two americas. there is a booming america doing really well and a body of the theess political debate and cnn debate tonight, it feels disenfranchised, we see what jeremy in the united kingdom and such. do america's dialogue ever fit in that table at the building? >> the first thing you have to do is end the -- empathize. stable prices, that is general macro economical and issues about income inequality, the labor's share of income, serious macro concerns, serious issues

for the political economy. i do not know what level of the federal funds rate makes the income more equal. guts to a headline job of trying to deliver the best you can. it is an argument for testing where the national rate is. an argument for going a little longer in terms of policy accommodation, as well as inflation is well-maintained. tom: we will come back with mr. reinhardt here in mike mckee, kroll is putting on the really in charge showing that huge distinction between higher service sector inflation and lower, almost goods deflation. talk about two americas. part of it is service versus goods. energy is down 2%. that was a huge influence. the fed is trying to look past

8:38 am
model that iaid no know of. a lot of the models we know of do not work right now. they are not appropriate right now. there are two schools of thought on the modeling that we should be looking to. one is that the old ways should pick up again. the other way to look at this is the models we used to use, they broke during the recession. they're not fixable. the economy does not work that way anymore. that is the fight going on right now. exactly what he is talking about. later in the hour, he said productivity goes up. but that is not what is happening. we will not have the answers to these questions until well down the road. we will not know whether the economy returned a normal -- whether it is typical, what we only thought of as the national rate of unemployment. brendan: i have been working my way through a textbook recently to work things out. it was published in 2000 seven. i keep reading it and thinking,

8:49 am
wait for more data. can pushes against this. reinhardtss vince pushes against this pier 1 is wrong with getting off the zero bound and saying we will wait for more data? >> nothing. if they could make the funds rate more positive, they could. you could keep policy accommodative, you just do not have to be a zero. the problem is getting from here to there. policy action could have an outside market reaction. they worry about that. keep policyay to accommodative is to keep it at zero. michael: don't you risk just sitting there forever? seared in 1995,arket memory, the stock market took off and
8:50 am
the economy took off. we had a boom. is it much of of risk to move now? >> 1994 is incredibly evocative for a lot of reasons. one of them, you mentioned. the main point there is the federal reserve will only change policy if they think the economy is doing well. it is not necessarily detrimental. what to dosue is when you actually react. they have a problem. hard to explain reasons. it maybe be says something about economic efficiency. it is not conducive for creative destruction. there might be problems with being at zero, but they are hard to describe. central bankers love option out it. you do not like to say, we do not like zero anymore because
8:51 am
you immediately get three questions. why were you at zero so on, but would you do if the economy was over, and why were central bankers remaining a zero? like being at zero, but have a hard time explaining why. some have suggested that is one of the ways they get off the zero. story not like the going to zero to begin with. they generally have the property that the best policy is one that strong aseconomy possible. therefore, a lower for longer funds rate get the aggregate demand that makes it less likely me the economy slipping into recession. another issue here is the idea of nominal gdp. many have written about this.
8:52 am
federal reserve adapt? we know they can do short-term rates. the real economy go and boost animal spirit in any given nation? >> it is tough. the best example being japan where nominal gdp is at the level where it was in the mid-1990's. a perennial problem with monetary policy is you have to itk through markets and depends importantly on expectations. it is tough going against the against that sentiment. people look at inflation expectations. ands curved downward against signals, not the inflation people want. is that valid from where you said? it has moved up a
8:53 am
little bit in the last couple of days. that is the hard part. they do not like to look at the market based measures of inflation expectation. they like survey-based better. >> here is the dirty little secret of monetary policy. officials keep saying it is important to keep inflation expectations well anchored. if you ask them how they measure expectations, they shrug their shoulders. [laughter] the we have got to stop show. that is why mr. rinehart is on. what you just heard is the clearest statement i've heard on policy from anyone p ryan sorry to interrupt. please continue. >> if you're not exactly sure how to measure things, here is how. you look at market-based

if they do move, how much did are they doingow it? there are details that will need to be explained as well. is maybe one of the most complicated fed decisions for them to announce that we have seen. vince: no question about it. there will be two statement spirit we learned in the last minutes, going forward when they announced policy action, they will also announce how they will raise. i.e., how the fed will go about executing what they want to do. there is an enormous number of moving parts. in terms of the policy part, it is a whole kit of information about the current and expected future path for interest rate and on the implementation side, it is, are they going to do it by exclusively raising rates a pay on reserves or will they drain reserves on a temporary basis? -- a lot of

details. when you have a bounce sheet, you do things that a big size. michael: very quickly, if the fed does move, we know what they say the exit strategy is, would you say it works? vince: nope it you cannot raise the funds rate by raising the interest rate on reserves. repos and large term deposits. michael: does that screw up the markets? vince: it will be tricky. it will change intermediation flows. the lady think about it is the central bank intermediates overnight liquidity. they will intermediate going around dealing directly with banks and nonbanks. tom: grilled to have you on here -- thrilled to have you on here.

9:05 am
they move or is it better that they sit and wait and try to get more clarity? >> our perspective is it is better to sit and wait. i understand the fed has promised a rate increase for the month and a probably should deliver. from the data, the answer is no. they should not. michael: are they going to get more clarity? people who tell you they do not know what is going on, what are the signposts they are looking for so they will know? >> investors tend to respond to price more than any other single -- whatever level the market chooses. they would love to see correlation climb. correlations are up 92%, way back. tom: what does that mean for mere mortals? low correlation diversification has no benefits. it creates more risk in the stock for folio.

it intends to make an offer for miller. it has not yet done so yet, but it could be a unanimous one because we have seen an increase in shares. the market cap is north of $90 billion. this will be the largest deal ever done in the industry. the industry has already been very busy in terms of deals. a couple things have been driving the consolidation. people are drinking less, sort of cheap beer. if i may. is in craft growth beers, what little growth there is. julie: right. you have seen beer makers acquire craft rumors, but the volume is not enough to make a big difference. that is what is happening in the u.s. which haveg markets, been growing, you talked brazil and china, you know what is happening there, they have been slowing down. something like 30% of

9:20 am
talk today from traditional qe. outdo you see that playing from affecting markets in the u.s.? sawt creates volatility we last month or the real challenge is how much can affect swing against the money flows of the rest of the planet? if every other central bank is pushing, can the federal reserve realistically do the opposite withoute interest rates other turmoil and other challenges to the u.s. economy? is strong, but 1994, you go back and look at the graft -- the grass and it is larger. nicholas: there is hope monetary policies will improve those economies. we are not see much of this yet.
9:21 am
tom: i look at the back-and-forth and what we all know is these are after-the-fact institutions. one of the most emotional interviews i ever did on the show is richard timberlake from the university of georgia. old.st've been 85 years a magisterial history of the federal reserve and he said look, in each instance, they act after the fact. nicholas: the underlying sentiment you express is correct. it is ultimately an academic institution founded by principles, one of which is you need to show the proof. tom: how do you respond to a critic, and you can pick any number of critics, ron paul is a harsh critic.
9:22 am
fact.ct after the nicholas: i take it in a different spirit. andink they take exception, i think rightly so, of such an important american institution not centrally democratic in nature. a philosopher king rather than a democracy. maybe it has to be that way or maybe the 2007 crisis in 1913 made it that way and we just continue to trend. i take their points in a different direction and say, is this right for our society? michael: what would the argument against it the? you have got to take that in the context of, what people on capitol hill would like to see the fed do. it is a tremendous question for you ultimately can have politicians running on monetary policy.
9:23 am
the.annot be democratic institution. the debate will ultimately be about how much the fed should markets, howtal much on its own internal projections and process. that will always be a constant rebalancing act. michael: if i asked you how much, you would say i do not really know? to the point of, we're better off not doing anything. nicholas: debating as an investor or a policymaker or as a politician. as an investor and someone who speaks to investors every day, my spirit is to let the system run the way it runs in and figure out what the next step will be. most of the investors feel the same way. do you see tom: revenue growth -- regarding cherry on? nicholas: no. the economic news is only so-so.
9:24 am
our expectations for q4 are probably too high. supportive, we will go down five to 6%. late october, i would call that more of a correction. tom: ok. thank you so much. moments ago,ing still no u.s. inflation pressure . we certainly saw that in the report this morning. michael, what are you looking at right now? athael: i am trying to look if there is a time of day tomorrow where we can panic. is there a moment where we can lose it? against thisly countdown clock. i think it is like sports, like espn. we do not do that. it has got value after 12 noon to remind you where you are as you get ready.

9:32 am
publish number? >> we don't because we had not seen the terms of the deal. it will be weeks potentially before we do. we do know that miller was valued at 70's -- $76 billion. u.k. company's largest shareholder has about a 27% stake. they are up 2.2%. u.s. brewers are higher as well. cores up almost 11% in boston beer with a 1.3% gain. fedex down 1.3%. they trail the average analyst estimates by $.32 per share. fedex cut its fiscal year profit forecast because of slumping demand for some shipments carried by truck along with higher insurance costs. late yesterday we saw fedex shares pop up along with those united parcel service. ups down at the moment. hewlett-packard up.

tom: does anyone use them once they buy them? >> i know a lot of people who say they like them. exercise more, eat less accomplish is the same thing. down.'t suggest that is -- dumb. that would be sacrilege. that was tracy. david was talking about was happening in the equity markets but when it's fascinating to watch is all of a sudden the bond market came alive. if it consciously because the fed was not going to do anything. but now the two-year note yield has gone 79 basis points. >> the interaction between the two is really interesting. we had a selloff in bonds and equity's rallying and in some people's eyes, specifically bank of america, they think this means markets are ready to take a potential rate hike on thursday. tom: did you see were that yield
9:35 am
should be without global recession and the impugning of disinflation into america? is is supposed to be at 1% right now? have you seen research? tracy: know, i haven't. tom: is a huge mystery right now. tracy: i know we have been talking about this a lot but the split in the market in terms of what the fed is a is not going to do tomorrow is phenomenal. even though we saw the movement yesterday, the futures market is only pricing in a 32% chance of a hike on thursday. that is up from 28%. still very small. economists are evenly split. although it seems like some people in the bond market are getting ready for a hike or trying to hedge the risk of a surprise hike, we still really have no idea what the fed is going to do on thursday. >> there are people who make the case that that is the reason the
9:36 am
fed should stand pat because they have not signaled. but it has not always been true that the fed felt the need to price the markets before they move. tracy: this is the other debate we are starting to get in the market. we spoke about larry summers saying there has never been a rate hike when the futures were not pricing in about 70% chance of a hike. people are starting to say wait a second, did the fed ever say it wanted to give markets this degree of comfort? did they say they wanted to lead markets and to this extent? people are starting to backtrack on that. there are still plenty of market participants that think the fed should be communicating its policies, specifically nick lawson at deutsche bank. onsays if we get a hike thursday, that is to policy changes from the fed. a change in interest rate regime
9:37 am
and a change in their communication regime. tom: mike mckee explained deutsche bank's place in this analysis. he has got a unique voice with a history of peter garber's work on a greater international economics. chiefer was the international economist at the fed for a while another long background in central banking. he thinks the fed should move. they are past their sell by date. tom: tracy, expand on this. how can there be to rate increases if there is only one? would say on peter's point there is a weird dynamic happening among investors right now. i was reading an investor survey where majority of investors think the fed should raise rates in the survey, but minority think they actually will. difficultis terrible situation for the fed where they see where asset prices are right
9:38 am
now. they are potentially divorced from reality. they see what is happening in the global economy and the trouble in emergence markets, and the ecb strong data in the u.s. that says they should maybe tighten. but they have to tighten all these things. that didn't think it through. we saw lloyd blankfein standing up saying he thinks on the basis of u.s. data defend should not hike. tom: i adore him. is there a beer here? hold on. michael is with us from bloomberg radio. i learned that blue moon is not a craft beer. yes.el: tom: blankfein is not an economist. ,. >> you got to wonder if the fed wishes it had never started talking so much. tom: we will talk to eli manning

a modest debate tonight. no doubt different of what we saw at fox tv. cnn doing it tonight. vonnie: what you are referring to is the republican presidential candidates gathering in cb valley -- simi valley. still, it's a very different debate. it's more of a head to head debate in the first one. how will that impact the front runner, trump and carson? >> what they are trying to do, unlike fox, is 10 a candidate against one another. ben carson and donald trump who represent the same type of politician but are totally different types of people. it will be very interesting if they can go up against one another. i was talking to the carson campaign folks. they made it clear he does not want to attack donald trump one-on-one.
9:43 am
donald trump has taken a few shots at them recently and you wonder if they can get them going against one another. >> for all the people not been carson or donald trump, the people they do not matter, are there any best practices in figure got had to insult either of them? they are tricky people to go up against. carson is leave him alone. you don't want to attack some of my carson whose favorables are 81% in new hampshire. if you leave him be and hope he comes down to earth as the weeks move on, with trump you have to be aggressive. he so it happened with carly finorina. she really shot up in the polls and is willing to take donald trump on. i think there is some concern at the walker camp. if you let him walk all over you , your donors and supporters willfully. -- will flee.
9:44 am
you will see a lot of people try to be aggressive. what is interesting is trump's response. debate where a potential new donors will be watching or any potential or gaffs that people would make to get the money? >> absolutely. you have people they give a lot of money to either scott walker or his super pac or marco rubio that are waiting for results. touted as the candidates they could really boost the gap between two sides of the republican party. it just has not shown yet. both have low single digits. you can throw chris christie into that as well. this is a huge moment more for the donors and anyone else right now because right now the summer is a dry season for raising money. you have a couple more weeks to raise before the reports are due.

" i still believe the fomc will lift off tomorrow. mr. stanley on a detailed inflation analysis notices service sector away from residential. it is soft and his word but he stays -- this is important. he says the federal still persevere and raise rates." clearly the probability is not show that. >> that depends on what you are looking at. we were talking up -- talking about the feds fund trading. when you are modeling it, what are you using? we use our teams fast knowledge. they still think the fed will increase tomorrow. we are anticipating 25 basis

9:55 am
in terms of the impact on economic growth, it is really knows it will. -- fairly negligible. china is less than 10% of profit alone. if we do have a chinese meltdown that spreads globally, starting to weigh on europe and japan and more on emerging markets, we have to be more concerned. for now it seems relatively contained. tim cook was making news. he is at the vanguard of the cash toward that is out there. you are very good at this, about thinking about the change behavior of executives. do you see a new executive use ofthat is codified cash british as part of your spreadsheet? part of what you guess? underappreciated trend shift has been going on for the last three years and it's
