promising to pump value into foreign investments. china will open up wider to the outside world. >> we will accelerate the legislation process and adopt the pre-establishment evidence list and put an end to government review of contract and restitution of an foreign investors in the process. the positive list will be longer and bigger. >> she leaves today for -- xi leaves today for washington to meet with president obama tomorrow. pope francis comes the first pope to address congress and there is likely to be something for everyone to dislike. liberals don't like his position on abortion and same-sex marriage and conservatives will clash with him on climate change and cuba.
6:02 am
russia's vladimir putin is prepared to launch airstrikes on the islamic state from inside syria. bloomberg news reports that putin would rather have the u.s. and their allies coordinate their actions against isis. the senate will vote today on stopgap funding that would keep the government open past next wednesday but is not expected to settle anything. democrats plan to filibuster. mitch mcconnell hints that he will offer a new plan that includes funds for the women's health organization. only threeas sessions next week before federal agencies run out of money. most poll shows that americans agree with the central theme of donald trump's campaign for president. surveyed think
6:03 am
their country is not as great as says americans are fed up with politics, suspect the wealthy have an unfair edge and think the country is going in the wrong direction. tom: that speaks volumes. think -- kitchen sink was thrown in that poll as well democrat party poll we saw yesterday. let me do a data check, we can do an hour data check today. the euro is all over the place, advancing off the norwegian shock of an hour ago. crude oil has been fragile this morning. churns and then there are commodities. copper -- that is not the right quote. it is about 2:30 on that. that 7.58 is eight misprint and with brazilian real, overt
6:04 am
intervention by the central bank of brazil to try to staunch the collapse of the brazilian real. let's look at something constructive which his new home sales coming back nicely but to put it in perspective, here is the trend, here is that exuberant boom at another time and place. of thethe measurements united states of america, vonnie, we are not back there yet. vonnie: and the question is how far do we get back to. we have new sales looking for a gain of 1.6%. tom: jon ferro is with us in london and let me cut to the chase of the incredible news flow that we have got in the markets that we see away from norway and the challenges of europe, what are you most focused on?
6:05 am
jon: i am looking at the reality of a $50 oil price. you see a market that has become unhinged and the central bank that needs to react to that. a rate cut today by 25 basis points. the thing they have got on their time -- side is that rates are at 0.5%. tom: i looked at chair yellen's speech. we don't know what she will speak about but we go right to this december debate and the idea that she is the central banker to the world. jon: china really got a seat on the fomc. samey they face the question. they asked themselves to make a judgment call. is it a slowdown or is it permanent? and what does that mean for the domestic economies. that draghi looking at
6:06 am
decided whether to do more and janet yellen deciding whether to do less. tom: at michael mayo will join us in the next hour with david goldman but we have a special guest as the president of china travels to washington. volkswagen to not make it to thursday and the pope will make it to capitol hill this morning and emerging markets implode and we begin with the markets with jon ferro. joining us this morning is stephen rhodes, senior lecturer. tothere any element or tinge norway, brazil, austria with negative interest rates in the ghosts of 1994, 1997, 1998? >> the 1994 comparison is one that always intrigues me. that was a time when we had a huge bond bubble and the fed began a process of normalization
6:07 am
with the basis point increase in february 1994 which unleashed the worst year in history. tom: could she do that leading to global instability? >> the fed was woefully behind the curve that we defined by inflationary expectations. there is no inflation right now so the risk of a bond market debacle on the scale of 1994 is less significant in my opinion. at: you and others looking the assets and liabilities of a complex global system. what is the fragility of the global balance sheet right now? >> the fragility is that we have come through a horrific crisis and we are still stuck to a large extent with the debt piled on before and after the crisis.
6:08 am
the world has to come to grips with this debt one way or another and central banks are finessing that problem by subsidizing debt service cost. tom: we saw that with governor carney here a number of weeks ago. , a question please for dr. roche. are all trying to figure out is whether we have a fundamental shift on our hands. whether the slowdown is temporary or whether we have a central shift. is this a new world? a new chapter for china and the e.m.'s of this world? >> it is a new world. if it wasn't i would not be doing what i am doing for a living. tom: are you coming off the yale?t quota of c's at there's no grade inflation? >> it is early in the semester.
6:09 am
currencyhat about a prices are commodity-led prices. >> let's get back to the point on the brave new world. china is not crash landing as many of the people on this show would want you to believe, but china is changing the structure away from an old manufacturing, resource-intensive model. are inource economies serious trouble and likely to continue to be so given the ongoing adjustments. this is the norwegian currency against the euro and you can see very clearly how extended a large, developed petrol state like norway is. outside three standard deviations beyond the blue circle. you go to steve roach and it shows that even the better economies are challenged with
6:10 am
new instability. >> they are in the biggest uncertainty of all of this is we look at the commodity situation and economists will come on my show and your show and say this is positive for the developed world but we have not seen that feed through. i would be very interested to get the view of the professor. when do i see that positive feedback into the developed economy because i haven't seen it in the u.s. or europe. we certainly don't see it and commodity producers of this world. >> that is a great point. consumers are supposed to benefit the most from falling oil and other resource prices are still dealing with the legacy effect of a horrific balance sheet in the recession. it is average less than 1.5% per year for seven .5 years. -- for 7.5 years. loyal -- lower oil prices are not changing the balance sheets
6:11 am
for consumers. tom: you see the philippine central bank keeping their key rate unchanged. >> everyone compensates to the global system. media says china, china, china. what do you look at through the roche prism? china is important because china accounted for more than double the share of global growth and all the advanced economies in the world it but the problem is that the recoveries in the advanced world are anemic. so that is why china gets a seat at the fomc meeting. if our recovery was a strong as we are being told, then china would be a blip. tom: 10 seconds. do you agree with bill gross that the fed should raise rates? >> absolutely. the emergency is over.
6:12 am
roach agreeing with bill gross. tonight at 5:00 p.m., janet yellen and her lecture at the university of massachusetts in amherst. live on bloomberg television and radio. surveillance.erg
6:13 am
6:14 am
tom: good morning everyone, a tom keene correction. i am an idiot. our new world headquarters is off to the right. i was wrong. i got off the map and i looked at the 1547 map of london which
6:15 am
gave me clarity that we are just to the left of beach street which is where john locke lived a few years ago. he used to watch surveillance. jon ferro knows the map of london and joins us this morning. morning, let's get straight to it. in japan, prime ministers shinzo abe has announced what he calls three new areas of abenomics. he said he wants to focus on strengthening the economy, boosting childcare and expanding social welfare. he also said that japan had almost beat inflation. european union countries are still divided over the refugee crisis. at a summit in brussels, leaders humanitarianease aid to the refugees but could not agree on how to police the borders. the eu has proposed the border patrol be turned over to a new agency and volkswagen meets
6:16 am
tomorrow to discuss the choice of a new ceo. winter corn resigned in the wake of that scandal. possible successors include the head of the porsche unit and the branch chief. those are your top headlines. for more on that story let's bring in hans nichols at the vw headquarters. the big corporate story this time around. bmw. do we just assume at this point that it could spread? boy i think -- hans: we have to make that assumption. they said there will be spot tests on non-vw diesels. that means for any cars with differences between road tests and what they actually test in the lab or get there in missions monitored the good problems. we saw bmw down almost 5% because this same group that
6:17 am
blew open this story. they said that they detected differences between what the x three in europe was doing on the road versus what it was doing on the lap. i suspect all car companies are now doing road tests. jonathan, you and i should do road tests to figure out which way the stocks are going to react because it seems like a simple test can send the stock reeling. jon: i would love to do those tests with you. but the big question this morning is who runs this company friday morning. when we run this company friday who do we wake up with. whose job will it be to deal with the financials and clean up this mess? hans: on the financial side, mattias gets strong marks from wall street on the finance side and internally with the porsche
6:18 am
family and in part because porsche has been a printing factory of money. they have 3 billion in euros in profit last year. that was on sales of about 170,000 the occult. outsideant the candidate you go with the recent arrival from bmw. i think the way that we should figure out this next story is will i be here in monday or will i be at another capital of auto manufacturers in germany. where is this story going to go? i suspect it does not end i meet the world's biggest auto factory. tom: i look at london and the desire for small cars it is a global story and another minor but nevertheless tangible shock system.lobal
6:19 am
jon: you cannot predict these kind of events. what system. is interesting about this particular story is here is a company that spends a huge amount on research and development. if they can't get it right without cheating, how does anybody else get it right. to people wake up in new york and across the night states and say that because of this they're not going to buy vw or an audi? thisi want to go to how spreads in the u.s.. vonnie: by accident these marks and makes happen to be -- the agency contracted by the european regulators just happened to pick up on the fact. tom: you wonder where this ends. on the show yesterday could he gets a thursday and he didn't. justfor those of you joining us, the bmw story
6:20 am
continues to ferment. jonathan ferro and vonnie quinn with me this morning. coming up later, pope francis in washington. something pageantry at the white house? there will be a joint meeting of congress. we'll have full coverage on bloomberg radio and bloomberg television at 10:00 a.m.

tom: this is not london, this is not new york. that is kowloon. hong kong. entirely too beautiful. just a spectacular view this evening.
6:24 am
we welcome all of you from asia. we are used to david writing about japan but today he talked about choosing to go to a place for you have these huge capitalist successes like jeff bezos. i what to read this section from the article. when mr. xi began to show his authoritarian tendencies one enter petition was he was tapping down politically to prepare the way for economic reforms. in practice his instincts to control have trumped those to let the market decide. little pressure has been put on state-owned enterprises to sharpen up. for every interest rate -- would you agree he says he is liberalizing but everything he
6:25 am
does something he comes down on them? >> i think that is an exaggeration. i have a lot of respect for david. moving verdict on china to more of a market-based consumer services driven private sector led economy is in. that's where china is going. they're not going to do with the former soviet union did witches let go and let it go up in smoke. that is a very important example they will avoid at all cost. they have a heavy hand in managing the transition but it is a transition whose train has left the station. the consumer sector is now to gdp growthore and the investment sector services are larger than manufacturing and construction combined. ande are dramatic changes
6:26 am
we are balancing that china is not being given credit right now. tom: let's come back and we will talk to stephen roach in the last hour. from seattle to washington. and the pope, to keep up with the schedule will move up to new york city. i need to tell you that markets are on the move including a much weaker mexican peso this morning. we will have this for you all through bloomberg surveillance. today if i the clock p.m., janet yellen worldwide on bloomberg. ♪

6:31 am
10:00 a.m.begins at eastern time on bloomberg television. over 100 are dead after a stampede near mecca. officials say 115 were heard. more than 2 million pilgrims were taking part in the pilgrimage. similar disasters have occurred in the past including a stampede nine years ago. in a war thatnd lasted five decades. the government of colombia and marxist rebels have agreed to sign a peace treaty. willebels known as farc start to disarm. the fighting in colombia has led to 200,000 deaths. to cut oiloving prices. norway is western europe's
6:32 am
biggest oil producer and the slump has led to the highest unemployment rate in nine years. 20,000 people have been laid off. futures have deteriorated in the last 20 minutes. i'm watching the mexican peso but there is a lot to watch this morning. will be preaching this morning to a congregation split over abortion. a dispute threatening to shut down government. beyond these issues the pope's views on immigration and climate change will resonate. it was really something to speak to john goering before he went to the white house lawn. there, we observed a for kennedy sitting next to secretary kerry which brought me back to january 30, 1961 when a catholic
6:33 am
president spoke to this congress. and today the pope will speak. what will you listen for as the pope speaks this morning? >> i think the pope will come .ith an inspiring message i think he wants to lift us up and realizes we have a broken and divided government. i will listen to see how specific he gets. ourpect them to ground conversation about policy in a moral framework, but i think he will use an inspiring tone. tom: you are so good at our calculus of faith and policy. as a mentioned -- over the uproar from 60 years ago, how will this pope blend faith into a discussion with some politician sitting on their hands? >> i think he will try to remind us that politics doesn't have to be partisan.
6:34 am
the catholic tradition sees politics as a good thing. politics should be about human dignity and the common good. and as you mentioned one third of catholics are in congress. john boehner will be right behind him. many members of congress graduated from jesuit university. the pope is the first jesuit pope. there will be a lot of interesting spectators there today. vonnie: you mentioned the two members of congress that are catholic behind him, joe biden and john boehner. once capitalism presides over the city -- society and guides decisions it ruins society. although be this kind of conversation? >> that is a challenging message, particularly for the united states. we are the world's superpower
6:35 am
and at the heart of global capitalism. pope seesink that the it as a bad thing. he wants to put the human purpose at the center. so i think it depends, will be listen to the pope or just look to the pope to confirm our own political ideology. i think it will be an inspiring message but everywhere he goes he challenges people and i think he wants to get us out of our comfort zones. vonnie: there is a republican representative who will boycott the speech, will he hold any sway? >> i don't think so. i think the pope's moral message drowns out the petty, partisan politics. i think it is a sign of great disrespect particularly for a member of congress who graduated from a jesuit catholic university. speaker john boehner says we need to listen to the pope, reflect on what he says and be challenged by him. tom: what was it like on the
6:36 am
lawn of the white house yesterday? give us what actually happened. >> it was amazing. i was moved by it personally. the pope came by in a fiat. people screamed like the rolling stones were the beatles were coming by. there was both a sense of energy and a deep peace. pope brings a message that resonates deep in the human heart. him andd be lifted by should not drag him down to where we are with our ugly political conversation. it was quite a moment to see so many people from all walks of it was really remarkable. tom: we greatly appreciate your perspective. his book is the francis affect. stephen roche with us as well. we follow up with president xi
6:37 am
jinping, it is a state visit. that is different than a pope visit. two largestthe economies, the rising power and the dominant power. had an unprecedented outbreak of friction from cyber to territorial. tom: when you look at the south china sea and the west philippine sea, does the pentagon overweight that threat? >> i think we are concerned about territorial disputes from a nation that claims it has no territorial ambitions, but we cannot look at the military issues in isolation from the economic issues, the social issues or the geopolitical issues. they all come together when these two leaders meet.
6:38 am
and funny, i have to correct you, they meet tonight for a onnie, i have to correct you, they meet tonight for a working meeting. tom: stephen roche's most recent book on balance. our single best chart next on asia. ♪

6:42 am
in analysis now, takeaway japan, the dollar index has broken through key support back to the financial crisis of 1998. what does that signal? that the asian economy, china-centric as it has been for the last 15 years has lost its major engine. reflects a rebalancing that i wrote about in a book in 2009. it is finally coming into play. rebalancing ise not that china is crash landing but that it is shifting its structure and will become a source of demand rather than instruction. has asia as well as the broader global economy in a pickle.
6:43 am
they went china and many respects to continue with the old model as well as preaching the gospel. tom: jon ferro, we see that in the markets. malaysian currency, what is your observation to dr. roche about this seismic change in asia? jon: have to talk to him about that because it has become a divisive issue. a strong dollar welcome in the iny of london or the hgb hq frankfurt. my question to you, who is going to lose from fed policy >> who will be the most upset? will it be the ecb and the boj or that epm? mean, fed policy right now is frozen at the switch.
6:44 am
we will hear from janet later today but the fed continues to quick -- cling to an antiquated approach of inflation targeting in an inflation list world. always looking for excuses pay on the foil of low inflation to defer policy normalization. the really is no monetary policy in the united states right now other than to keep interest rates at zero and balance sheets large. other central banks are going along for the ride. vonnie: what about china's equity markets? now that we have seen this less than 2% range? >> i have combed for the time being. the bubble has burst and the market is probably back to the level that was prevailing before this shanghai hong kong direct was launched in november of last year. it is hard to catch a falling
6:45 am
knife. jon: just a very quick question if i may, you mention china and we talked about it getting a seat on the fomc, for anyone looking for guidance, do we stop looking at payrolls, do we just try to follow what is happening abroad globally? a balancing act between the domestic economy which is still performing very sub par and the international economy which it needs to provide a boost to exports to augment weakness in domestic economy. fors always a balancing act the fed. the china factor is so important because the domestic recovery isn't what the fed is trying to lead us to believe that it is. unemployment is low but the labor market is obviously not tight enough to generate any wage pressures. tom: mike mayo and david goldman

6:47 am
yesterday speaking among thousands and attending mass in d.c. but he still had time to meet some fans. the white house photographer captures the happy moment. he is hearing their possessions. tom: very good. you wonder, when does he sleep on this trip? >> sleep is overrated. tom: stephen roche, sleep is overrated. his most famous quote. commuters complain about traffic but nobody expects to ae this, i dash cam captured plane landing in the middle of a busy california street. they were not filming a new movie it was a routine exercise between a college student pilot and instructor. this forced students to make an emergency landing. we are laughing because no one

because their hands are thankfully tied. which means i like bank preferred stock but i hate the equity. >> they are not making loans because they want to buy treasuries or because they are not -- they are not making loans because nobody wants to borrow money? before the news is financial crisis, capital is double where it was. the balance sheets are more resilient. there is a stress test every year so banks are pillars. but if they want the industry to the level, the consequence will be less. tom: david goldman used to live this at bank of america. will i have a job in february? will i get to bonus season? what do you predict over the next five months for bankers in new york and across the country? >> banks will do fine. there is a stress test. it assumes 10% unemployment.
7:08 am
-6% gdp growth in one corner -- quarter., thanks will be fine. tom: do they jettison hundreds of thousands of jobs? >> this is the worst growth for the banking industry and eight decades. the only way to control the bottom line is expenses. vonnie: we saw a terrible quarter at jefferies as well. where do we look to for checks and balances in investors for bank of america? >> i just returned from charlotte. we look to the board for checks and balances. we had the vote on tuesday that promoted the ceo to the position of chairman. they looked for the vote after the fact and promoted him already. then they decided to have a vote last tuesday. i was one of the four people that asked questions. miles.veled 3000 this was a representative of the largest pension plan and the country. the largest teacher retirement
7:09 am
plan. this person asked -- made his comment. before he was done, he says in closing, they pulled the plug on him. the representative of half $1 trillion in assets was not allowed to finish. will redoel mckee that quote. as you asserting to me that the representative spoke, they pulled the plug? >> this person, bank of america's board, the lead independent director, there were not many people there. they said we are going to treat shareholders better and right after that, they pulled the plug on one of the most important investors in the country. >> here's what they had to say. this board needs to regain the trust of their shareholders by continuing to engage with their investors to rebuild that trust and holding brian moynihan
7:10 am
accountable for company performance. that is the response to the vote. do they then have to offload their shares for bank of america? >> banks are zombies. there is no reason to expect them to sprint that they are not going to fall over either. you owed him for steady income on the preferred site. if you own them for economic growth, you're in the wrong movie. tom: we are thrilled to have you with us today. we will continue this discussion with mr. mayo on the strength of america's banking system and of course david goldman on the challenges of emerging markets. at 5:00 p.m. tonight, we hear from janet yellen on radio and television.

♪ tom: good morning. how much copper is there on the net -- london metal exchange? commodities on the move. willie moving this morning. the riel,ng for mexican peso is not helping me at 17.25. watching.all janet yellen whether she will say anything to clarify the reaction function for investors tonight. this morning, he
7:13 am
is writing that maybe janet yellen doesn't know because the fed has abandoned the old milton friedman everywhere monetary phenomenon definition of inflation. he says friedman's assumption of accelerating inflation and it irrationally rational expectations that lead to single-minded targeting of instability are embedded in economic models like some biblical creation myth. but the fed, along with almost all other central banks appears to have lost faith in that story. in other words, we are not seeing inflation and are pumping money into the global economy and it's not working. has suchmodel confusion of theoretical foundations to what any central bank is doing. mike one model has been a catastrophic failure. :all we have done with
7:14 am
quantitative easing is turn the world into a lever trade. threaten toeven take the money away, the people picking up pennies and the and run andter there is a nearly perfect correlation between expectations of the future fed funds rate and commodity rises. the fed itself is the source of deflation. what?d itself needs to do to say our models are broken, monetary policy has done what it can. but that keeps trade going. >> absolutely because at this point if you have a drug addict who will die if you take the drug away, you don't take it away and say there is something else you have to do. fiscal and regulatory policy is what has to happen. in that case, the best case is nothing. do no harm, hippocratic oath.
7:15 am
anything the fed does that attempts to take the terry away will exacerbate the situation. tom: do you agree that they should have raised rates last week? >> they should have done absolutely nothing and now they have themselves in the worst of both worlds. they said they would raise rates and the market believe them but they lost credibility. treat for you worldwide. coming up, we speak with the eu trade commissioner.
7:16 am
7:17 am
7:18 am
tom: good morning. we welcome all of you worldwide. david goldman and michael mayo, let's get to our top headlines. says its cars have no cheap function like those used by book wagon -- volkswagen. they say that the bmw suv european standards. shares are down more than 7% now.
7:19 am
the suv was tested by the same group that tipped off u.s. regulators about volkswagen. calls back -- he shinzo abe says he wants to improve childcare and expand social welfare. he said japan is close to beating this. they will continue policy for investment. still divided over the refugee crisis, at a summit in brussels, they agreed to increase humanitarian aid but they disagree about how to police europe's borders. the eu has proposed that border patrols turned over to a new european agency. ask if the global economy is hostage to german cars? bw accounts for one and a quarter percent of the german economy which accounts for the largest percentage of the european economy. now bmw is being dragged into it.
7:20 am
we have an auto analyst for bloomberg intelligence, he joins us from our princeton new jersey bureau. the real question everyone needs to ask when we are over here is not only what the future is of wouldd vw but how much this it affect the global economy? kevin: good morning, i think there is over capacity and this global industry and auto industry in general. im sure the demand is there and there will be automakers ready to fill in and grab those shares. probably an is issue with that technology specifically. we see here diesel engines are not as popular or necessary on the cost side as they are in europe. and we have seen other automakers go to other technologies. i think this all gets worked out.
7:21 am
it may mean a change in the strategy for a company like hasswagen who cannot do or proven that they cannot do diesel clean, high-performance, and cost-effectively. and maybe adopt another strategy. we are seeing investors sell first and ask questions later when it comes to bmw and vw has been hit hard. your suggesting this is a company specific problem that won't affect the auto industry in general. again, there can be a greater impact in europe where half the market is diesel. here we are 1%. i think that is one of the things that is interesting about the vw case. when they are eventually done with realigning and paying fines and fixing vehicles, the question is what the strategy is from their. does that continue to be diesel?
7:22 am
congestionink about and pollution i'm not sure going forward that is the answer. you have seen other automakers. toyota leads and hybrids and tesla with electrics. there is other technology along this spectrum that makes me question whether diesel is viable. who gets to take over from winterkorn and how long will it take before somebody settles? kevin: they may have that by ,omorrow and i would say that besides coming from porsche is probably the front runner from the family's perspective but i think he might be a bit too close to martin winterkorn and say it start fresh with somebody on the outside who come up or lack of a better term, hands are not dirty with this scandal. when you say realigning the sea suite, vw has been
7:23 am
criticized for being a top-down hierarchy. does that have to change? in: i think now is the time to look at all those things. not only the corporate structure and the management structure and the management mindset but the strategy on the diesel side of that. what we will do going forward or is there another engine technology or another way to go where that company can go from 3.5% market share in of u.s. to their goal something higher, maybe 10%. wonder why vw struggle so much in the united states and if this will affect them and if they cannot get traction anyway so it doesn't matter. >> that clean diesel was there. every automaker through its stake in the ground and says this is what we represent. their state was clean diesel.
7:24 am
and because of gasoline prices, because of our perception of diesel going into the 80's, we are not a diesel market. they never got that traction to where this is the new technology and will be the future of fuel efficiency. you guys want diesel and the u.s. market has basically said no. >> from bloomberg intelligence, thank you very much. we are in the whole. tom: what is the vw of the banking industry? a week ago nobody knew about this. what is the diesel engine of banking? mike: everyone is looking for the next crisis and i think we are on a crisis hot. the banking industry is strong. if you are looking for bad behavior at the top of a firm, it is bank of america. i keep harping on this. but they said we will treat shareholders better and in the

7:32 am
what is the correlation of the markets right now? pros like you are going across the correlation. david: the big correlation is between the expected fund rate and everything else. emerging-market currencies, commodity prices. think that thele volcano might corrupt, everyone -- interrupt the biggest trade in the world has been emerging-market debt which has doubled since mid-2000s. tom: he keeps talking about mexico, did you think you should be careful about picking up the pennies? david: they have bought emerging-market debt to try and enhance the returns and they are getting killed. there is no where they can sell it because they own it all. the good news is the banks don't on it anymore. tom: let's go to jpmorgan, you
7:33 am
call them the lebron james of the system. dimon, mr. goldman says they don't on this garbage anymore. call them the lebron james of banking because they have offense and defense. it is much stronger and more resilient and they can withstand this. if the fed had raised rates what will be different? david: if we go to three and a half percent, janet yellen says we are going to -- the market doesn't know. dropu say once you will and living downstairs from a centipede there might be 100 choose to drop. people will run out of levered trades. world trade volume in nominal terms is down 7% year on year as of june. this is a world trade recession

7:35 am
incredible dynamics. when does the dollar get to that ribbonlike dollar -- rubin-like dollar, to frankly dam and -- dampened the american spirit? goods producing sector of the economy is underperforming. our gdp is driven by consumption and the consumer balance sheet but the goods producing export side of the economy has been terrible. token, china, retail sales up over 10% year on year, exports down more than 5%. it is hard to argue it is an internal problem in china which is creating problems globally. the chinese internal sector is growing rapidly. it is the external sector that is shrinking their industrial picture. that is why you had such a bad print on the pmi. walmartrs reported that
7:36 am
has gone to the chinese, to their suppliers in china and had your currency has depreciated so you need to give that to us and get price cuts. how do you deal with that in the world? how can anybody deal with it? it seems like deflation is embedded in the culture now. had a 50% real effect of appreciation and currency since 2009. they took back to-3% of that and people like donald trump who doesn't know anything about it says they have been devaluing forever. walmarts negotiations are not my concern. as you say, it is a hallmark of the deflationary environment. tom: how internationally exposed our big banks? jamie dimon goes to washington and says we need global banks and jpmorgan wants to be one of those.
7:37 am
are they the same international exposure of other crises? >> the largest banks are more diversified than when you go back to the third world problems of the 1980's. the banking industry's mantra is do no harm and protect the fork. the balance sheet are fine and there can still be hiccups and this this inflationary world, banks have to become more efficient meaning cutting more jobs. >> the net interest margin of the banks is at an all-time low. tom: do you agree with that? that interest margin is the lowest it has ever been, the opposite of what is supposed to happen. that means the banks are being conservative. consolidation or he become more canadian -- where we become more canadian? the regionals, come on. >> you seen some consolidation
7:38 am
pickup with bb&t making acquisitions. they said one reason is to create restructuring opportunities in an environment that is more difficult. less, partlyding because of regulation. they will also lend less due to demand in the past economic recovery. tom: this is the animal spirit everyone is talking about. >> when you say a little bit, is it significant? not only do people want to borrow but do they have cash on the balance sheets? >> growth in this economic expansion is 1/5 the pace of past economic expansion over the last century. vonnie: our banks becoming more interesting to you than the old banks? >> the way we look at this and david goldman talked about this in this world of tough revenue growth we like tough self-help stories. suntrust is one.

7:50 am
we do that with michael mayo. and bank ofan america will move on but where is open to question. it is sort of kind of working out. mike mayo has been a respected vocal critic. he is the managing director at clsa america and s david goldman is also with us. we touched on some of these themes and the hour but let's step back and say with all the upper of the banks, where are , and theodd-frank ability to do a new american banking. do you have a picture of that? mike: the new of america's banking is the old. it is a banking of the 1950's were banks were pillars of strength and stability and trust of the community. the good news is the balance sheet are stronger than they have been in half the century.
7:51 am
the bad news is is revenues are sluggish. regulation is complex, there is over 13,000 pages relating to and-frank regulation interpretation. that is tough to navigate. tom: is there an overcapacity? mike: based on revenue growth you would say yes and that means banks need to cut expenses. >> your criticism of brian moynihan, where is he failing by these regulations? as he burdened by the legacies at bank of america, the bad purchases i'm looking at. the returns under the chief executive officers his return is 1.3%. kendall is is was -2.8%. by those standards, he seems to be doing a good job. mike: tough comparisons. the bad job is with the tone at the top of bank of america. to aholders sent a message 37% no vote. >> is he failing the
7:52 am
shareholders? the economy? the lenders and customers of the bank? the shareholders, the stock price return for the last five years is the worst among the largest banks. he also failed the 2 million people represented at the meeting when after two minutes, the representative, the plug was pulled. he's should have said i'm paying for this microphone. >> it doesn't matter what management does because there is too much money in this carry trade facing too little profit. the fixed income of bank of america, there is no way to get target. mike is right, they should cut expenses but it doesn't matter much. it doesn't matter who management is because their hands are tied. tom: mike mayo follows the banks. david goldman limited the banks
7:53 am
for decades. lowest excuse the by the banks. i'm sorry you have low returns, there's that you can do. citigroup doesn't rely on higher interest rates. bank of america only has targets were they rely on them. selling off unprofitable businesses, reallocate capital, doing what they can. this is not new news. tom: i don't want to go into personal experiences that you had as you look to be a very -- boa. is this a bank that never successfully merged? david: bank of america had one idea which is to hire and acquire and fire. between the mid to thousands that trade was over and there was nothing for them to do but consolidate and sit there. it is not an interesting equity proposition. it is a great pervert option --
7:54 am
great preferred option. there is no way for them to make returns in common equity better than real interest but the preferred stock has bigger yield and it is mispriced. it is too cheap. tom: do you agree on the yield take or do you want to get an equity pop down the road? mike: bank of america, poorly run bank. i think if you are capable and good you can get a return. they are two banks with very different business models. should they be a consumer and business loan driven model like wells fargo or should they be supermarket conglomerate bank like jpmorgan? david: we would say it is management over model and return of the top of the firm, there is no timeframe for any key financial target. there is not a clear scorecard
7:55 am
on how managers get paid. what bank of america needs to do . the board needs to hold the ceo and his management team accountable. vonnie: why is he insisting on having those? mike: if you read the proxy for the meeting, they say it helps them do their job better. but they haven't done their job well so wired -- why are you promoting the ceo? tom: let's talk about the pageantry we will see in ishington, david goldman, think of dr. kissinger, the new ferguson book that is out. he is real politics. what is the real politics you suggest the united states needs with president xi in the coming years? david: we have a common interest with china and russia in crushing terrorist organizations. i think there's room for collaboration with resident
7:56 am
couldn't on -- president with on dealing isis. i think there is room. in the case of xi. china is involved in a serious military buildup but it is largely defensive. china has been paranoid toward the u.s. and feels itself encircled as a former colonial country. i believe there are ways to do conflict avoidance with china but we will never quite lent tensions -- blunt tensions. on the saw putin speak unilateral effort against isis and syria. reports that russian marines are fighting next to hezbollah which are unconfirmed. that would be bad.
7:57 am
i think if the u.s. took a , weng role which it hasn't would force putin to collaborate in a way that is beneficial because he has an interest in stopping them from spreading to russia. tom: only come back to mike here. what will you be focusing on in the next two hours of surveillance? >> we will watch what happens with german car companies. fed it becomes about the when janet geller speaks later today. the pope is not going to move markets. tom: i was going to open on the opening of the brazilian trading. this has been fabulous. david goldman, formerly of bank of america and mike mayo of clsa moyniharp comments on han.

8:04 am
sentiment continues to turn increasingly bearish. where we aret seeing in volatility coming up, investors being more bearish, that is usually a sign the markets are trying to find some sort of a bottom. it does not mean that this volatility does not persist, but over the long term what investors need to focus on is the global economy, despite the war, expense at a modest clip and immigration remains benign around the world and equity valuations compared to most other asset classes as a attractive, not about environment long-term investors. mike: you don't see a global central bank driven bubble that will burst and we don't suffer for a long time? see typicalould not bubbles, you look at spreads and credit, usually the first thing, reasonable to long-term values and equities are quite cheap and bronze globally and equities are
8:05 am
usually not cheap devonte's because they are a better asset class than bonds. i do not worry about bubbles forming in parts of the world. i think the bigger worry i had coming into the month was that the federal reserve could be setting us up for policy mistake. irony is that investors seem worried the federal investment -- reserve did nothing. mike: was the mistake moving up or not moving? brian: i think it would be moving up. the first role in central banking is to do no harm. like: we just heard that -- heard that.t everybody is looking for hippocrates to be the fed chairman. brian: united states is importing inflation into the country, down by 10% year over year u.s. dollar has surged 30% and you can look at bloomberg credit conditions index and shows a significant amount of tiny and since then the quantitative easing. you've also have in the united states not a significant amount of weight will. can argue labor markets getting
8:06 am
tired, is that going to happen? a good thing, but we know how to fend off inflationary pressures should they get out of hand and i think that is the, oh, please moment. god, give us inflationary pressures. policy mistake, raising rates in a world where you have excess supply, could be damaging. mike: -- tom: i wanted to say good morning to all of you on bloomberg television and radio. brazilian real is a jump closedon opening, 4.05, yesterday with intervention by the bank at 417 and we weakened further to 4.22 brazilian real per dollar. that is mimicked by the mexican other turning moments in the market futures, -15. bloomberg's "surveillance" right accounting text advisory.

phil: people are never really super happy with how things are going, but right now i think there is a definite you can see it in the numbers and who benefits? knowing us for donald trump. it is not just donald trump with outsiders. it is a theme we have seen over the last couple of weeks or you see donald trump in the bloomberg's politics national poll by 21% and following him closely is ben carson. ben carson's rise has been the most impressive because he has come from single digits into a legitimate number two candidate. the other one i was interested to look at was carly fiorina up 10 points since her august poll to 11%. had a great debate performance and try to parlay that into the fundraising in the last days. you will see more of her but there will be more pressure on her. vonnie: the poll was taken after the scene and they, right? phil: yes, it was taken after

create a level playing field between us and them. we are quite advanced in those negotiations but not there, so that is the formal release. does this suggest negotiating with them separately from the united states, does this suggest that idea of a global trade agreement in those days are past and that bilateral or multilateral agreements are the way we are going to go in the future? cecelia: the last years have shown that there is a spaghetti bowl of bilateral and regional agreements all across the world. we are negotiating plenty and you are as well. you have the transpacific ownership and many others, but we should not forget that the world is an important organization and from europe site, we will do everything we can to see it we can have an agreement to bring around because we need global relief as well, so ideally these bilateral agreements need to be come formative with them. tom: you are four of five people

8:43 am
this, but tell us about the severance. how would that be decided and how is it generally decided? >> it is decided depending on how is termination is classified. if the board finds out that he or did they find out he was terminated without any fault, then he gets a severance of two years compensation which should be around 30 million euros depending and based on what he has been paid in the past. if they find out that he was actually at fault and he knew about these emission tests and manipulations, then he won't get any severance. saidow that the board has he has no knowledge of it and that they respect his decision to ask for termination, so from the face of it now, it looks like he will get the money. vonnie: will it be based on performance at all because you have to discount this or ignore this scandal and how has the performance been what kind of package to expect?
8:44 am
>> he could have implications because there is a certain part of the conversation based on long-term performance of four years and two years. it could be slightly lower but at you right now and based on the past conversation data, roughly round 30 million euros. vonnie: this scandal seems to be spreading. there is no other carmaker to be found at fault by regulators and gone above and beyond when it comes to emissions and we don't know whether that will be something that will turn out to be more widespread and whether french automakers will be involved. what are the kinds of packages that we are seeing with carmakers in general to ceos? they're pretty rich generally, right? martin winterkorn was of the second-highest paid ceo in germany, so certainly at the top of the league. these guys usually have fairly good cushions to fall back. vonnie: even in the u.s., it is

8:56 am
the only one facing this dilemma. other central banks are in the same bind and a number of central banks in the last years that raised rates only lowered them, so i think the fed does not want to do that. i think in the end, there is justification on economic grounds to raise rates and my guess is they will do it in december. tom: thank you very much. behravesh with ihs global. we get good feet on the pope's activities but this is a different pope. when he works the crowd, he really has substantial conversations with people. not like the typical american politician and he has his translator with him because his english is not up to the part of his number of other languages, but i was really struck with how he really sat on each child as he spoke to them

weakness now but the u.s. is growing fine. europe is actually improving. the u.k. is doing fine. japan is holding its own. 3 that's/4 of global output. things into perspective and i was suspect the federal reserve should be doing that. once again, the negative response of the market to the fed not hiking rates and sending out a negative message on global economies, i think that should be resounding around the board rooms. tom: there will be a speech today at 5:00 p.m.. tohael: what do you want hear from the forecast tonight? what will help your customers. >> i think it would be responsible for the fed to come and say wese rates
9:08 am
are raising rates because the u.s. economy is growing comfortably and we continue to forecast in our official forecast, continued moderate growth in the economy and inflation going to percent. if they say that and make a positive message about the economy, not overly positive but realistic, the markets will respond positively. the fed'sink about forward guidance, think about the last couple of years, it has been negative. we will keep rates really low for a long time in order to stimulate demand. you look at nominal gdp growth that has not accelerated and has not worked and now they should start taking that the economy is growing at a healthy pace. tom: we will have you back for one more question. >> they should look at the

9:21 am
the pope will speak about that at 10:00 a.m. we also need a central bank grace. the graces more quantitative easing. it's always been the solution the last two years and we see it further with japan right now. too many people like congress look to the fed for solving all of the problems. forwardplus qe and guidance keeps rates artificially low has extended monetary policy way beyond the scope of which is capable. i think the fed has come to realize that they have run the course and how much they can do. what you see is nominal gdp growth hovering lower than 4%
9:22 am
and is not responded to the artificially low rates and qe. we saw the markets respond last week negative to the fed not hiking rates. think the fed is always dealing with uncertainty and we have uncertainty now from china and emerging nations. it needs to think about its long-run objectives and it officially has a long-run strategy that it publishes every january. it has a mandate and it should say we have achieved the mandate on employment, inflation is below 2% but below it for reasons that are benefiting the economy. get outke the rates and a positive message on the economy. the economy is growing just fine. michael: what is the point to hiking rates? one is the fed is
9:23 am
beyond its scope and secondly, atis -- by keeping rates zero and long bonds artificially low, it is creating major distortions not just in the u.s. economy but global financial markets. the fed tends to understate these distortions. an older person that relies on interest income if there are distortions on their balance sheet. ask any insurance company, ask other global central banks. tom: the argument is it will dampen real economic growth. one episode in recent u.s. history for the fed has hiked rates in the economy has slowed down. every time the fed has hiked rates when the economy is strong particular from this low rate, it has no impact. lays publish that u.s.
9:24 am
gdp for this quarter is tracking it to put -- at 2.2%. michael: are we at potential growth right now? is this as good as it will get? >> i think it will get better and if you look at everybody's tracking for the third quarter, they are also tracking strong domestic final sales, slower inventory building, and weaker exports. expect weaker exports in response to the stronger dollar and the slowdown in china but we should also expect healthy domestic demand which is what we are seeing. much,hank you so mickeylevy. cincinnati, where john boehner went to high school, m,ueller high school manufactured athletes and football players that mostly

9:43 am
matt: he says the same thing in a different part of that interview where the automakers union says it's not a company specific problem. i think the important thing is that each company will have its own issues with this. with bmw, they've got issues with this. has had issuesrd eachepa guidance and company will have to come out with a separate statement and that's exactly the same thing we heard a couple of days ago from nissan. it cannot say the entire industry is gaming the system but many companies probably are to some extent. where you draw the line? basically, i don't

well under 3%. the citibank people have been more downbeat about the global economy than most others. called for a global recession next year. it's on the back of additional confusion from the fed and they think they will not move this year. the fed fund futures are only trading up slightly. highlight allen zentner llen zentner at morgan stanley. along with out front citibank along with these significant shifts. this is not about the new york jets. michael: it is amazing.

they are playing as well as the new york jets at this point. you want a trade that will probably pay offer for you, that on harvard football. the man we are going to bring it will never do that and he will be the only one in america who will be worried going into the game. tim murphy is the coach of harvard football. you can hear harvard every week in boston on bloomberg. you went to rhode island and last to your undefeated and you are still undefeated. you did note rebuild your team, you reloaded and are ready to go. >> i think our coaches would look at it differently. replace six players and welace 2 nfl guys

had to rebuild in some positions but it's a solid start against rhode island with offense and defense and special teams. 10 is the final score and brown has not given you a contest in recent years. >> i would not say that. we have been fortunate to win a lot of games over the last decade over brown but i don't think any of them have ever seemed easier. we got out of their lesser with their life and we seem to be their biggest game so we will give it their best shot. they have a lot of talented athletes and play a defense similar to the new york jets defense. i was watching the pregame show. defense andg at the i said that's the brown defense. it's a blitzing defense. i thought i was looking at the brown film. tom: you sound like a proud football coach. snap and the the

9:56 am
congress would invite the pope? bute is a tourist value while he is a worldwide figure, he is not a world leader. why would they invite him? the supreme court is walking into the chamber. that should mention about1/3 of the court is also catholic. scenesf this behind the and in front has to do with john boehner. many speculated a couple of years ago that his deferring act would be immigration reform and he would go out with a bang. there is a second wave of speculation that of all he did was bring the pope for an historic address to congress, that would be his legacy. the pope's visit to the u.s. is a fairly historic event anyway. while he is here, the idea of
