reserve minutes -- you got a house call for a rate hike in december. is that the challenge quite significant? mike: i do think it is any more challenging than what we saw yesterday. the minutes yesterday told us largely what yellen told us in september. that they feel reasonably comfortable on the trajectory, based upon strong domestic gotnd, that they have signing off on the employment data and they don't quite sign off on inflation. wasooks as though it similar to september 20 4 -- they are still on track but we want to see more data before we pull the trigger. tom: you are data dependent and i can understand it. in an extensive conversation yesterday with chairman bernanke, i was taken back by his uncertainty over q4. as we try to game the parlor
5:07 am
game of mark carney and janet yellen, are we any more certain about the past, or is it just one moment forward? mike: i think we are reasonably confident that the path, as most of the central bankers have said, is policy getting tighter, or less loose. the timing, as you say, is pretty tough. take the fed -- you have these two payroll numbers between now and december, which will be very important. you have the inflation numbers, which look quite nice. you have to see further momentum out of the laborers. if you are a policy maker, they would think about -- 100,000 payrolls numbers. sure, we had a week number last time, but as long as we keep above 100,000, and ideally if the wage number were to pick up, that would give them confidence. tom: what we observed this week -- the economic
5:08 am
system linked into a struggling banking system, trying to find a new half. thisig of a distortion is absurdly low rate? mike: clearly, no central banker wants to stay at zero. if you look at the data that both the fed in the bank of england have, on the one hand, the economist are undershooting so i think part of the reason you want to get all serious because they don't like being at zero, and they recognize that it does potentially create long-term distortions. if they get the opportunity to get away, they want to take it. that is what we are seeing at the moment. jonathan: the market has got them cornered. 39% probability of a move in december -- they don't want to move when the market doesn't expect it. steve major of hsbc had a call
5:09 am
of 1.5% at the end of 2016 -- what you think when you read that and what kind of global economy do you need to see for that call? mike: i did raise an eyebrow. it was an interesting call, and to be fair to them, they have had very good calls before. they are projecting is a world in which inflation remains at these levels or potentially goes lower. look at core inflation in most major markets -- it is stuck at 1%. whilst we are struggling to get inflation up, we should be relatively reassured that even in places with large output gaps in europe, you are not seeing core inflation rates go further down. jonathan: my question plays into commodities. -- givenmarket in 2016 the effects of energy prices about to drop out of the headline cpi figure -- the bond
5:10 am
market is not moving on its own. why not? mike: the bond market is worried about asymmetric risk. obviously bankers are more challenged. when you look at bond yields at 2%, part of that is people expect the fed to get left off but they recognize that it will get harder if it doesn't. across the whole structure, you have these two counterbalancing forces. volatility.ly, the same. --: this may be a bit away but what will equities do question mark do they have a bid because of good revenues and good earnings, even if hsbc says it is a 1.5% environment? mike: and a 1.5% environment by definition you are looking at relatively low growth. i suspect that is a world in which equities are probably struggling.
5:11 am
as you have seen in the reaction to the payrolls number, you have some pretty bizarre moves. most of the markets have reacted favorably to the weak payrolls number. they could see that in the world of monetary easing. happens, i wonder what to the end of the year when the federal reserve has to communicate that they will not spend the whole year saying they will move. is that when things shift? mike: you saw that in the september fed meeting. pass,ried to do a dovish and the markets reacted badly. to some degree, they created this expectation by highlighting it. the truth of the matter is that it is hard to see markets completely dying out. volatility is now in year-end. jonathan: michael stay with us. tom keene as well. let's get over to manus cranny with what is on our radar. manus: we kick it off with

a huge driver of what's happening in fixed income. i could overlay the u.s. 10 year yield with the price of oil and they track each other beautifully. i nder how your call on oil plays into this. mike: our view on oil is that you will get -- this is a part supply and part demand story. china has been part of the demand story. here,look forward from our core view is that you will see some take out of capacity, if we stay around these levels. if you look at china for the next 12 months, it is hard not to believe that the six months with fairly tough. but is it will get worse than people expect? we wouldn't take that angle either. we have traveled and maybe we will see some volatility, but the worst is probably behind us. tom: let me put on my chart of the year. this inflation-adjusted --

5:19 am
do you assume that there will be a balance sheet adjustment on the mining stocks to come, that there will be a massive markdown? where can you dollar cost average know what you will see that accounting adjustment? mike: i think we are seeing the balance sheets -- glencore is the classic example. the producers are responding to that nowk -- i am not a commodities or equity guy, but broadly speaking if you follow our logic, the commodity price will probably stabilize and at some point, notwithstanding some volatility, you could draw obvious conclusions for commodity producers and commodity prices. jonathan: tied to that story is the reaction of central banks in europe, whether it is the ecb or the bank of england. towards the end of the year, the expectation is they will have to do more. do you subscribe to that theory
5:20 am
based on what you think is going to happen? mike: we do. if you look at what is going on in europe, their key challeng e is the massive output gap. we could debate -- and it is a close call on december -- but you can see that domestic demand is holding up reasonably well. in europe, you don't have that. we would subscribe to the view that they would have to do more to try and get inflation up. jonathan: can we retest the position, the crisis of where we were in the spring and the bond market? if so, is it in germany, italy, or spain? will i suspect that you see traders be reasonably warey, simply because the violence -- if you look at what is going on, ten-year bond yields have them stuck around 55, 60 basis points through the

5:44 am
advice. the imf has taught emerging markets they need to get their house in order. if they had their house in order, no matter what happens, if the fed hikes or china slows down, you will be ok. there is a realization in lima, peru that the imf might be sometimes too gloomy. the financialm crisis. europe is growing. probably more than most developed economies. i spoke to the head of the oecd. policy mishaps are his main worry. we are not in bad shape. he's not talking about a global recession. mr. gurria: i do not see a recession in the sense of negative growth. i want to leave that very clear. what we see is a slowdown. there are a number of issues that have been -- the drop of oil.
5:45 am
which should have been a good thing for most economies. we calculated it was going to 1% plus5% and up to positive effect. francine: what happened? mr. gurria: it added to already existing pressures. havearly see that what we to do, having exhausted the room banks,euver of central now governments have to come in. francine: fiscal stimulation. mr. gurria: we have been there, done that. where trying to reduce deficit, reduce accumulated debt. you don't have a lot of room in monetary policy and fiscal policy, go structural.
5:46 am
francine: we've been waiting for structural reforms. that is the problem. they do not take them. the countries all have -- spain, ireland, portugal -- what they are getting his recovery, jobs. francine: back to the initial point about corporate bonds. undereally have been pressure. over leveraging risks and creating defaults, that is one of the main warnings from the imf for emerging markets. if you look at the size, emerging market companies, especially linked to commodities, have ever borrowed. $3 trillion is what they have borrowed over the last 10 years, 4 times more than the previous decade. tom: when i look at lima, i love the urgency and what we heard urria, what is the immediacy at these meetings

given the bombshell from hsbc yesterday. they a new mediocre or are rationalizing at a three day soiree? francine: i don't think they are rationalizing, i think they are here to try and warn. they want to ensure in lima, this is essential bank governors, policymakers and finance ministers and officials such as the imf and world bank, from this mediocre we do not go down a slippery slope. there are risks they want to highlight. so that we do not take steps that make the situation worse. keep hearing this, will be the year where growth and steinmetz but does not get worse or if we start declining slowly, it becomes difficult for policy to respond, that is a little bit more sinister. jonathan: i want to bring mike
5:48 am
from pimco into the conversation. we worry about emerging markets. emerging markets are saying get on with it. what i see on the screen right now, copper up 4%, aluminum up, is that a short squeeze? mike: i think it is a reaction to the glencore news. i would be surprised if you get a big ramp up. i think it is a reaction to supply. jonathan: do you see it in fixed income and corporate debt, corporate em? is becoming ae em single name story. you have weakness. some companies will come under severe pressure. you can see that already. the market as a whole is very differentiated and i think that is an important factor. from the blue book to the in lima to the world

economic outlook to financial stability. day isup said the other financial and security. does pimco see any whispers of financial insecurity that could affect gurria, dijsselbloem, or lagarde? mike: most of the major banks have twice the amount of capital they had pre-lehman. risky balance sheet's. they're in a fundamentally different position to where they've been for the last decade. oft gives us a lot reassurance that financial stability looks pretty good. in peru and i i'm speak to policymakers, they start shifting in their seats when i ask about inflation. a clearot gotten
5:50 am
inflation about what is driving inflation lower and when it will pick back up. there's a global output gap keeping core inflation rates low everywhere. the one reassurance is that what we are not seeing is developed markets' core inflation rates trending lower, they've stabilized at about 1%. it's quite tough to see a big pickup in inflation. i think we should all respect the fact that if we look back to or three years ago never of -- none of us expected rates to be here. the fact that we do see stronger inflation, at the moment, be reassured that the deflation risk does not seem to be getting worse. jonathan: mark from pimco. 2 hours and 50 minutes until the session in europe. ftse green. we will talk markets after the short break.
