company to use so fault -- -- devices. the paper likens a discrepancy to the vw admissions scandal in the united states. the european commission says they will investigate any allegations of cheating and will tighten energy efficiency regulations. in response, samsung denied using any such device saying it is a standard out-of-the-box feature used it to save energy, not a test cheap. they say the feature is called motion lighting, which reduces power consumption by reducing brightness. samsung says motion lighting only activates as a default setting, working both in the
laboratory and at home, delivering energy savings. in the u.s., auto sales enjoyed their biggest jump in more than a decade last month. gm, ford, and nissan the estimates as low interest supported american's love of pickups and suvs. auto data says at the end he was telling for seasonal trends is 18.2 million vehicles. this is a rare bright spot in the country's manufacturing industry and stands in contrast to other economies. it raised its four-year vehicle sales forecast by 100,000 to 17.2 million. its estimate moved to match the record set in 2000. even bmw, still reeling from a pollution scandal, managed a sales gain, defining analyst predictions of a plunge for the
brand. combined with audi, vw sales rose more than 6%. says it plans to ban the sales of streaming devices from apple and google from the end of the month that are not easily compatible with its videos service. the retailer sent an e-mail to its market based sellers that it will stop selling the apple tv because thoset devices do not interact well with prime video. existing inventory will be removed. will not beystation affected. amazon's a will likely hurt google more than apple which has its own direct stores. the move shows how amazon is willing to sacrifice a sales of popular brands to bolster its own services. amazon has invested heavily in online content, including producing its own shows, such as
the award winning transgender comedy, transparent. those of the stories topping the headlines today. yvonne: thank you. ,ooking ahead, don't overreact we cover the recent volatility in china. probleming up, the arising in south korea, we will discuss hsbc after the break. ♪ yvonne: south korea's central
in terms of data points, we had production and exports. if you look into the third year, an inflationing target. there has been increasing talks that they will lower the target next year. they have to set a target for a three-year period. basically, if they come to the realization that potential growth is weaker than what the government expected, which is about 3.6%, they can lower the target and expect lower growth. yvonne: when you look at the rest of world, like japan, still 0% inflation. should we be worried about deflation right now? should we even say that word? guest: i don't think we should be worried about it, edition is
just the realization that there will be lower growth. this is a high income country. is just that policymakers have to take expectations into consideration. yvonne: what do you think -- how much more lower should ago? guest: probably not too much lower. at the end of the day, they expect growth to be upwards of 3%. it is going to depend on their estimates. probably not too much lower. they don't want to set too low of a target, especially if there is going to be recovery. talk about these export figures because it dragged down the most since 2009. it was better than expected but still, much in contraction. inventories will be the big thing that could see further downward pressure. guest: exactly. contraction, it could have been better than the 15% we
saw in august. if you look at industrial production, that was better than expected. closer,look at the data a growth in september was less than previous months. on year to year terms, it is actually quite high. have expended for four consecutive quarters a quite a high pace. that introduces some worries that potentially, in the coming months, production might not be so good. is ae: of course, there weak global demand. china is a factor. domestically, we are seeing consumption being quite a factor . why do you think consumption is still so low? why cannot we recover? guest: part of it is that korea is dependent on exports. weekend, koreans had cut prices and reduced --
that feeds into employment. if you look at the pmi, the employment subcomponent has been in contraction for a few months. that is leading to stagnant wage growth. earlier in the year, we had a burst in june. that is why later, growth was quite small. after that, it is getting a bit better, consumer sentiment increased but not to the level pre-merge. can is why by the time we -- that is why we don't think we can reach the growth forecasts. yvonne: so you are expecting a cut? guest: we don't expect a cut in this month's meeting. the data was a bit better than expected. industrial production expanded. you look at the minutes of the september meeting, there was a bit on whether cutbacks will help the economy, or will we have to revise growth forecasts. there is a little bit of
optimism. we don't expect any cuts this month. i think, going forward, they will come to the realization that growth is not that strong a we will not reach the forecast so if they downgrade the forecast this month, that could imply that they will be a rate cut. yvonne: there is that issue of household debt because if you do -- this would just spur more borrowing and swell the problem? yvonne: -- guest: exactly. as interest rates come down, household debt increases. however, there were some measures over the summer that introduced a package to help switch mortgage debt from floating rate to fixed. it is making the economy a bit less vulnerable and improving the distribution of household debt. i think that might placate some of the concerns but at the end thate day, it is something
can prevent them from cutting rates but if the economy is slowing down, then i think pressure will be on them to actually cut rates. lending rates to businesses as well. that is where you need investment, investment at the economy for future years. yvonne: not quite as dire as some suggest you're thank you for joining us. us and stories making headlines around the world. 13 people reported to have been killed at a shooting at a community college in oregon. police and say a gunman opened fire on the campus of umpqua community college, 180 miles south of portland. police say the gunman is dead but has not clarified whether he was shot by officers or killed himself. president obama offered his condolences and lamented his country's inability to stop repeated mass shootings. i answered ama:

there is a real difference in terms of china saying a peek, and india saying no peak. what it is important to look at is, the fact that india itself is home to the world's dirtiest city in terms of new delhi having the world's dirtiest air, it is home to 13 of the 20 most polluted cities. there is a big stake here for india. is this agreement going to kickstart investment in renewables? where's the money going to come from to build a clean energy capacity that india is talking about? will, but moreit than anything else, this agreement really is an india isgment that already making those moves. it is starting to invest, it is starting to build solar capacity quite significantly. the goals are quite ambitious,
175 gigawatts of capacity. that theyment says expect by 2032 have about 40% of its primary energy coming from nonfossil fuel sources. that in itself indicates a significant push for renewables. the question is where does the funding come from for that because india is saying it has all the these competing priorities and commitments. of the commitments is, we need extra help, we money from outside sources, we need money from the asian development bank, witty money from some of the biggest polluters are some of the biggest economies in the world, so it is saying, yes, it will make commitments, but we have to get money from elsewhere. if this commitment really going to be reaching this global agreement on climate change in december in paris? as you indicated in
the introduction, it is significant in the sense that india was the last major economy to make commitments. what it means is that india is part of the discussion. that is a really good thing. -- india hast does always said that these competing elements -- it has -- it acknowledges that it needs to grow. it acknowledges that that means that a missions are going to rise but again, there is a lot at stake for india in terms of its own pollution and a lot of stake -- a lot at stake in terms of a global environment agreement that will hopefully hold down temperature rises. yvonne: thanks so much. coming up next, backing businesses, what startups can do to make searching for funding easier. ♪
