12:08 pm
growing faster like the newer storage unit. what is dell going to do? are they going to spin it off or absorb it? 's plan, if you believe them, by acquiring emc's storage business, which is geared towards large enterprise can do is, what dell now repurpose and start marketing the storage business to small businesses and medium-sized businesses. connected by selling servers. they say they can have three times the revenue synergies by having this company combined as one by taking advantage of these crops selling opportunities. it would not surprise me if dell spun out some of the businesses at emc or maybe even some businesses dell already owns in help de they are taking on about $50

12:17 pm
since the middle of last year but it has a long way to go before reaching levels we saw in 2007 or 2000. the lows are not as low as they used to be. thissue is whether reflects structural changes and whether part-time work is just going to be more common going forward. over to you, andrew. is the jobs, is the transition beinge part-time jobs driven by employers or employees? >> i think it is being driven by both to what we need to do is create a balance. so that those that want to be employed full-time have good, excellent jobs available to them. and those that want to work part-time have the ability to work part-time. we need to create and train people for the proper jobs that match their skill sets. alix: sort of to piggyback on work in the

company's see sweet, what would we need to see to filter more money for capital investment orrsus a dividend buyback plan what do you need to see from congress and presidential candidates? >> we need a plan from congress that addresses the fact that we do not have the right people doing the right jobs. there just needs to be a proper employment -- and i want to leave that up to our elected officials, who promises all these jobs and then they go and argue about it and nothing ever gets done. one of the other point is we also need predictability and stability in things like the tax code, regulatory climate. we are seeing progress on trade. the kind ofve stable governmental environment that we need to be turbocharging growth in this country. we've had a very weak recovery tiered to comment earlier about
12:19 pm
the number of part-time jobs, we could do better. we are underperforming against our potential and i think that is what is frustrating. that is what leaves millions of people dissatisfied with where they are in life today. scarlet: have you reached out to any of the freedom caucus members? trying to disrupt the flow of congress. governor? tend think i'm not sure what you mean by that question, can you repeat it? you reached out to any members of the freedom caucus, the ones who are disrupting politics, as opposed to the presidential candidates. they are going to abstract getting work done. >> the freedom caucus, that is part of the problem. no question that that is a difficult thing in the house conference but it is not the reason they cannot get 60 votes

in the senate to take up all the budget bills. both sides have something to the blamed for. nobody is blameless. thank we've got to leave it there. we've been speaking with andrew and john engl alix: inflation indicators are all about oil. we've got two charts showing you how closely they are correlated.
12:21 pm
12:22 pm
scarlet: welcome back to
12:23 pm
bloomberg "market day" in new york. i am scarlet fu. alix: i am alix steel. scarlet: the bond market is closed and the stock market is open. we've been talking about is the impact of oil on macro indicators. whether it is inflation or anything else. the swings in oil prices have set the tone, starting with inflation expectations. not what the fed is looking at but how investors price in price increases. i have a chart from stephen englander of citigroup. the top shows the 10 year break even rates for the u.s. and germany, what investors think rates will look like. the bottom is brent crude, the benchmark. oil is supposed to be transitory. central banks are supposed to look past it and they say they do but there is a clear correlation between these two panels and you can see how oils move shows up long-term.
12:24 pm
when oil was sinking, it drove the headline numbers lower, which the fed does not use. it drove inflation expectations down as well. alix: you are looking at three oil charts. with the exception of two inflation charts and one oil chart. scarlet: what happens when oil recovers? what do the central banks do with that? alix: then it puts the pressure, we havethe brakes on qe seen. piggybacking on that, jeffries had a great note saying there's a good correlation between the 5-year and plied inflation expectation and u.s. earnings revision. the idea is if you do not have good underlying earnings growth, the yield curve is going to be dictating stock movement. if we extrapolate, what we are looking at is a chart of oil versus the s&p earnings revision. it is going to be dictated by
12:25 pm
what oil prices will be in the future is what earnings will be now. that is a difficult proposition. scarlet: especially given the swing we have seen in oil. since the middle of last year, oil tumbled but you kind of had this recovery through the summer before we started tumbling again. what visibility do companies have? from goldman sachs said their six-month forecast is $40 a barrel. they see the potential for more downside. the idea is if that is dictating what is happening with inflation expectations and that is dictating what is happening to earnings, can earnings recover and anyway or see meaningful growth if you have oil between 30 dollars-$50 a barrel. the forward curve does not see a $60 a barrel for another year. is that enough to stabilize expectations? scarlet: how do fed policymakers divorce oil from monetary policy
12:26 pm
? alix: there is stimulus when it comes to oil, we have not seen that as much in the u.s.. thatan in their note said china is levered to some of the aspects of the commodity chain that they do not get that kind of stimulus boost and that is an issue of why it cannot go out and support earnings. scarlet: we are starting to see that. everyone tries to determine how it shows up and i think we are constantly surprised by ways in which it does and does not show up. every day,at oil, that will tell you what you need to know. scarlet: we will continue talking about commodities. glencore trying to cut its debt, open to selling a couple mines. is that enough? ♪

12:32 pm
in australia and chile versus other copper holdings? >> these are small assets. this is part of the portfolio of things that glencore is trying to the marketplace. one course stock was even down today. this is a small part of the huge portfolio. it seems as if they are taking assets andh cost offering them for sale. the real gems of the business are off the table, good for the long-term. alix: does this mean glencore thinks copper prices have not yet bottomed if they are going 400ield $300 billion or nine dollars in free cash flow? lme week in is london, all the traders try to figure out what is going to happen in 2016. that is the number one topic. maybe there's more downside in the copper price. bhp say it has hit
12:33 pm
bottom and everything is going to go up. alix: rio says we are not going to shut down mines. is glencore leaving cash on the table when their competitors are out there producing? >> that is the point. iron ore has been the example, bhp and rio say we are low-cost and we're going to produce. -- theroyed the cup price of iron ore. but we are hearing is we do not care, we are still making money and we don't care about the price of copper. it is an interesting move on the part of rio and bhp. you would think they could be the adults in the room and cut back a little bit. every time the price goes down it hurts their bottom line. scarlet: going back to glencore and speaking of strategic moves, glencore said it was approached by buyers, unsolicited interest. why is that important? peoplee is a lot of doing a lot of deals right now.
12:34 pm
i have talked to some bankers and had lunch with some bankers. there's a lot going on. by them saying it is up for sale, let's hear some bids, people have probably approached them and they are going to get more serious. alix: this is a buyers market. why would glencore want to sell assets when the buyers have the control at the end of the day? presumably you would wait and sell when copper is much higher and make more money. what is the point? >> when you run of that much debt and you are worried about the market, that gets you into a market. dave told the market they will get that down. scarlet: i want to tell you something jim chanos told us. go thisn bloomberg morning. >> we know the company pretty well. a is a company that was reasonably high return on capital business enable market that has turned into a low return on capital and below

their cost of capital. years, past handful of not the last year, this company was declining in its returns since 2012. and so it is a change business here it is not a trading house anymore. it is a collection of mines with a trading operation. scarlet: jim chanos added he's concerned about the company because it is supposed to have a great trading reputation. what they've been doing is buying things at the top of the market and looking to sell at the bottom. that mean glencore is calling the bottom of the market? >> if you are jim chanos and you like to short, you can see what he thinks. as for glencore, i think they are trying to right the ship and take a look at markets and repurpose the company. it might be smaller but it would be more profitable at the end of the day. scarlet: are there any sacred cows in glencore's portfolio? >> depends how concerned they are about debt levels.
12:36 pm
if someone offers the right price for the right property, he has said they will sell it. when you look at glencore's vision and you hear what jim chanos said, do you think they will sell mines and more of a trading operation? is that in the cards? >> there's thought that glencore has been a good trading business, probably be best. they are a great trading company . it sort of fell into the xstrata mine assets. now they are getting away from that and selling off and a lot of those assets and getting back more to what they know well, which is trading. alix: in london talking to big investors, what is their number one question when it comes to glencore. >> i think the question is more about the market. if the copper price keeps going down another 20-30%, who is going to be left in business?
12:37 pm
that is what the analysts came out last week saying, if the price stays here, there's all sorts of problems and that is the number one question. there is a huge fight about work copper's price is going from here. citigroup is bullish on copper. it is fascinating how the two halves are opposite sides. alix: as a disclaimer, peter grauer, the chairman of lp is a senior independent executive at glencore. scarlet: malaysia airlines going through and image overhaul. we feel the frustration of flight delays. a look at how airports are cashing in. scarlet: budweiser has not lost its taste for sab miller. rises the offer to buy

there is relatively light volume relative to what we've been seeing recently. and there's relatively little movement in stocks as well. we could see a rally continuing from last week, but it is not going to be a big win does happen. take a look at the bloomberg terminal for the best and worst performers. it looks like the rally is broadening to some extent. i'm seeing energy and materials as the worst performers, utilities and consumer ,iscretionary and health care so the typical defensive groups are leading the gains right now. single drag biggest on the s&p 500 after stopping development of the key drug. julie: it's a drug that was designed to help raise or good cholesterol. there are drugs aimed at decreasing bad cholesterol, this was one that was in development. didn'tpany says it really show effectiveness, so it is pulling it. it's going to take a charge of $90 million to do so, that's

five cents a share. according to analysts, this was a potential blockbuster drug. one analyst estimating it could be more than $2 billion in revenue by 2026 of the gains steam. is removal of that potential definitely what is sending down those eli lilly shares. mark has a similar drug and development, and those shares also been hit by these. a the flipside, amgen had similar drug approved by u.s. and european regulars this year for patients with high cholesterol. both of those stocks are higher a deal they are offering that looks better on a competitive basis. an interesting situation with eli lilly. i have a graphic of revenue and r&d as a percentage of sales, but we will have it later. alix: along with many of these other health care biotech names were the darlings of the market over the last five years in terms of health care. those are also rolling over as it rotates from the health care names into energy.

they only have 60 trading days left to get back to flat or up on the year. the reverse momentum is biotech. 30% year to date on average. now they are back to flat. they have a lot of tough decisions to make in the final two months of the year. in a beario techs are market. they have been for a while. you looked under the hood and found a couple of interest in facts her. there are two kinds of companies, solidly profitable and those who are not. nick: the ones with no profit are up, the ones that don't are down. investors are looking for names that have promise for the upside. on the regular line, profits aren't important. shift?e expect that to the guys who make real earnings are going to take up the helm? nick: he does feel that way. we see investors looking at biotech, and they do seem to want to split the difference and
1:08 pm
look at biotech names that have good fundamentals but aren't profitable rather than the more speculative names. scarlet: have to cell phone analysts play into this? they didn't capitalize on the selloff. nick: that was a mr. jimmy. when we looked at recommendations from the peak three months ago to the trough last week, all the analysts did was upgrade their favorite names to strong by and pull the plug on marginal lands to hold. they didn't upgrade the whole group, they kept the whole group fairly constant, just picking and choosing what they like best. alix: the other thing has been dividends. there's a great chart of the number of dividend players, it's really been on the rise. what happens to these guys as the credit markets seize up, the fed raises rates. does this not support the market? nick: dividends are not on a because profit market -- the margins expanded. payouts helped buoy the
1:09 pm
ratio. i think it's going to slow dramatically, corporate boards hate to cut dividends. --y are not going to want to revenue growth needs to pick up and it's not happening yet. scarlet: what is the bigger priority? maintaining the dividend, growing the dividend, or being able to buy back shares? nick: the priority has been buybacks. corporations use dividends to signal their earning power and the potential earnings growth of the company. but it is stock buybacks that we see as the primary way to hand cash back to shareholders. that will be an important factor in q4 as well. if this slows,x: what is going to prop up the sales market? is the bottom-line question. q3 is going to be orders down 2% to 3%, maybe flat if we get lucky. there's a lot of focus on q4 guidance.

new are hires. both groups of employees would have the same profit sharing plan. scarlet: you can always get more business is that julie hyman has a check on some individual company movers. there is some m&a to talk about. julie: it's in the technology industry. this is the deal we knew was coming, dell agreed to by emc for about $67 billion. it is the largest tech deal ever. we're talking about a price of $24.05 a share. emc is trading higher, but vmware is sharply lower. emc is not getting much of a lift because we have been talking about this deal now since last week. the premium we're looking at is about 28% if you look at the price before reports of this deal first began to surface. vmware is lower, we will see shares of this tracking stock
1:15 pm
issued for about nine dollars a share. it sounds like there is concern about more supply of the shares coming to market with these tracking stocks -- striking shares being released. that appears to be what's putting pressure on vmware. the company came out with numbers this morning for earnings, its guidance on earnings above what analysts had forecast. that's not helping the stock. i was watching shares of oracle, i reported earlier that oracle will not step in to try and make competing bid for emc. most analysts say they don't expect any competing bids for the company. all of this caps off what has been a very fertile time for m&a and technology. take a look at my bloomberg terminal, i have a five-year look at m&a quarter by quarter. this is the number of deals, the blue lines of the value of deals we have been looking at here at we seen a big surge in the value of deals here in the fourth quarter heading into the fourth quarter looks like it is hidden by my computer.
1:16 pm
the number of deals is down for the third quarter, but the value is significant in part because of this record deal. scarlet: julie hyman, thank you. more on that emc dell deal later. today the world's largest brewing company raised its offer to $103.6 billion and sabmiller has rejected three previous proposals, for an analysis of this fluid situation, our chief business correspondent matt campbell joins us from london. what is different this time? sabmiller rejected three previous proposals, how different is this one? --matt: it is a substantial increase. starting to look like something that is going to be very hard for the sabmiller board to say no to. their largest shareholder is
1:17 pm
already on board, they were on board with the prior lower offers. they are even more on board now, presumably. the sabmiller board is meeting in london today, i think everyone expects to hear from the very soon about whether this will in fact bring them to the table. alix: the share price for sabmiller is still trading significantly below the offer price of $43.50. it doesn't seem like the deal is going to get done by that. att: there's a little bit of hangover from pfizer astrazeneca , if you cast your mind back a year to that situation. it's very similar. us-based or certainly looking to acquirer buy a storied important british company under deadline pressure because of the system that exists here in the united kingdom about 28 day timeline for these bids. ellen fell apart. i think there's a little bit of reluctance about investors to find themselves in a similar situation again. but this one does feel certainly
1:18 pm
closer to being a concluded situation then after seneca pfizer ever did. reporting lot of the indicates that many people think around 45 is where the deal gets done. does that set up base with a different scenario from what has been offered? ist: what has been out there sabmiller is looking for something in the range of 44 to 45 pounds a share. this is 4350. it's not the final offer, there is the possibility that if sab comes to the table and opens of the books and cooperates, that number could edge up just a little bit higher. i don't think this is the end of the game, but we are certainly getting closer to something they can probably say yes to. matt campbell joining us from london with that deadline creeping up. alix: still ahead on the "bloomberg market day," does the largest acquisition -- technology acquisition ever make sense in a world where big tex seems to be slimming down?

scarlet: welcome back to the bloomberg market day. largest technology deal ever is in the works. dell is offering to buy emc for $67 billion. there are a lot of questions regarding the deal, for more let's go live to bloomberg radio to talk to carol massar. carol: it could be the largest technology acquisition ever. we welcome everyone was watching us on bloomberg television, and withis bloomberg radio carol massar in new york and cory johnson. let's talk about dell acquiring emc. with us is anand srinivasan,
1:22 pm
senior intelligence for our in-house group of experts. it's been floated out for the last week, we were getting ready. it's a huge deal, the largest analogy acquisition ever. dell is going to have to take on a lot of debt to do it. is this something that makes sense on a strategic level? anand: it does. the fact that a pc heavy company at an enterprise storage heavy company have come together to broaden their respective platforms does make sense on a strategic level. that said, the transaction as you mentioned is large, and it is complex, both in terms of financing needs, coupled with the fact that one entity is private, the use of tracking stock, the potential ipo of a small security company, i don't know if that will be talked about it all. and in silver lake and michael
1:23 pm
dell are contributing to the deal as well. in terms of the size as well as the complexity, this deal is unusual in the corporate i.t. landscape. but it is much needed. [no audio] cory: a tech company where you have services and security and pcs and servers all under one roof, maybe it isn't necessary. anand: that's a fantastic question, cory johnson. the event is just the beginning of the transformation. the fact that emc is undergoing restructuring is already out there. there undergoing $850 million cost cut and they are
1:24 pm
dramatically trying to revamp the company for the cloud model. arguably, again, this is a big if. the emcwere to complete transaction by mid next year and undergo a dramatic revamp of both the dell part of the business and the emc part of the business, as a private entity towards the cloud model, maybe they can pull it off in a couple of years. we've seen technology companies getting simpler and simpler, focusing on a few businesses that make sense. doesn't this kind of go against that? exactly against that. the point remains that just because it is simple doesn't make it successful. carol: fair enough. anand: the transformation that is going on in corporate i.t. right now is pretty drastic. everybody is pivoting towards the hybrid cloud model, corporations start to use i.t. in a typical cloud manner. the point is, the cloud they
1:25 pm
want to the example five by the likes of google, facebook, amazon. that is the cloud they want. faster, cheaper, more flexible. corporate i.t. doesn't want any part of it. you change or you die. cory: also in this, emc storage business, i have a great love for joe tucci, but their storage revenues have been declining dramatically year after year, just 3% growth in storage year after year. it's not like dell is acquiring the emc of five years ago. anand: absolutely true. they are doing it partly for the vmware software company, which is part of the transformation towards the cloud model. you got to figure out what you want to do with the storage assets. storage in and of itself has value. it is growing. and there is value on top of it in terms of the software that emc provides. the question is, how you transform that into the cloud
1:26 pm
model? i think that transformation is better done private. srinivasan, thank you. about 1.5%,re up but they are differently off their highs of the session. you, carol massar. we are working out the kinks with a technical of getting radio on tv. still have the bloomberg market day, copper keeps declining, it's not as a surly reflecting supply and demand. the head of the world's number two mining company sounds the alarm on short-sellers. we have been talking about this for a while. shortselling copper, great story. we'll be right back. ♪

1:33 pm
according to the head of copper or rio tinto, the world's second-biggest mining company. metal has lost more than 40% of its value since prices hit a record in 2011. john sebastian jock said short-sellers should be wary. we arehe tougher space not trading on fundamentals. i think a good example is there are lots of shortselling in copper. we see the pickup in terms of shortselling copper in china a few months ago. -- decided to change the rules, where people were no longer authorized to short sell, and therefore what we experienced were a series of copper for ause proxy for the chinese economy and started to short sell. today, if you were to look at it without any guidance on the
1:34 pm
if you look at where the prices are compared to the cost curve, there is something that doesn't stack up. we believe that there are a series of players which are using copper as a proxy for the general chinese economy, therefore taking a position. it can be a very dangerous game in the medium and long-term because as we mentioned earlier today, at some stage we expect the copper market to move into a deficit. you don't want to have a short position when the market is moving into a deficit. >> the question is how long do you think it will take for that process to shake out? so does move back to supply demand fundamentals? >> i hope that within the next two to three years, we move into a deficit position and therefore we enjoyed a more fundamental type context. fundamentals, if a market place copper iron are dominated by china, copper is 40%.
1:35 pm
does that concern you in any way? at a time when people are so bearish on china? i can read through china and various ways, by the official , how do via yourself you see china? >> as far as copper is concerned, we are not concerned about china. as you said, china council more than 40% of the copper consumption. following is -- i have mines in mongolia and a $2 billion copper trade with mongolia. to have trouble with racing -- placing my product? no. does china have issues in raising credit because all the business we are doing in china is based on reserve credit, the answer is no. ,e had concerned the year ago
1:36 pm
the answer was yes and we were very careful. but today, i'm not concerned. there are a couple of dimensions which are important for my perspective, which is i believe that the chinese government has the will and has the financial means to sort out the issue if there were an issue. if you look in the past, they have a very -- [indiscernible] there's lots of kpi in the marketplace, and in the recent weeks, if you look at the inventory, the metrics are moving in the right direction. i don't want to sound naïve, but back to the first point, as a businessman, when i look at the other book and i look at the evidence when you place the product in the marketplace, do you have any choice? absolutely not. scarlet: that was john sebastian and what's really
1:37 pm
fascinating to me is that when you have these big miners, these very different views on china and they base their business on what they think china is going to do, and how healthy china is, they are totally different. the first thing he will say is i have no clue what's going on with china. it's like a black box. that's not what you heard from rio tinto ceo. hoffman of bloomberg intelligence was telling us the way china uses copper is not necessarily a reflection of how it actually uses copper for industrial reasons. it's an actually a cheap loan for so many chinese companies and investors. scarlet: you wind up importing copper, you take alone outside of the country off of that, take the money into the country and put it to work in high-yielding where it is's supporting imports. you don't know how much of the stockpile you see there's being used for financing or friend user demand. the result of it is you have rio tinto committing to copper production, they are not selling anything, you have glencore that selling assets.
1:38 pm
of thee taking money off table, rio tinto is taking advantage of supply coming off-line elsewhere. it also creates this divergence among the profitability of these miners when it comes to copper. alix: you can't get visibility, and what if that extends outside of china because of what the lme says stockpiles of copper out a seven month low, but who knows if that's because of financial engineering because of chinese investors or because companies are actually using it? alix: lots more ahead on the "bloomberg market day." break, we are to bringing you a press conference at princeton, where an economist is speaking about winning the nobel prize in economics. more on that later. ♪

1:43 pm
i do want to say a few things. i really want to thank princeton for what it has done for me, and for the place it provided me to colleagues amazing over the years. what i wasvided looking for when i came here from britain, which was a place where you could work without having to worry about all the extraneous things that go on in so many universities. that has been a truly wonderful experience for me in princeton as a whole. wonderful graduate students, wonderful students, one of colleagues. i wanted to say a little bit the school. for me, the woodrow wilson school is one of the parts of this i like the most. that nobel laureates don't usually come from public policy schools.
1:44 pm
the woodrow wilson school has a very different way of going about its business than most other public policy schools. in that it really believes in academic excellence, then all of us are economist in the school, and their members of one of the world's best economics department. , think, if i can count right this is probably the third nobel prize that has come to the woodrow wilson school, which is three more than pretty much anywhere else. [applause] king: many magnitude -- deaton: many magnitude more than elsewhere. it's a model people are challenged, and the feeling that to some extent of it is are hands, it's hard to have policy practitioners, people really interested in policy. if you look back in the record, i just don't think that's true. there have been terrific people, my ex colleague ben bernanke
1:45 pm
will be talking here next week. alan krueger, they just a whole host of people who have come up through the woodrow wilson school, met the highest standards of academic achievement. as is like a nobel prize to the woodrow wilson school, in a sense. i think that's a truly wonderful thing.

1:46 pm
are off school for example. taking a look at major averages, we are seeing a mixed picture right now. i should mention the bond market is closed today, even as stocks continue to trade. it's worth mentioning that we heard from fed officials over the weekend and today, we heard from stanley fischer, the fed vice chairman over the weekend. reiterating the theme we have heard from so many fed officials, there is a likelihood that we will see a rate increase by the end of the year. it doesn't seem like the market is buying it. yes, the bond market is closed. i have been looking at work on my bloomberg terminal -- wir probabilityatp, priced in. it's a slight increase. we have been seeing a number have her closer to 33, 30 4%. but nonetheless still lower than you would think, considering what we have been hearing from federal reserve officials. move in the dollar.
1:47 pm
the dollar has been taking a dip, trading at a seven-week low. that would appear to reflect these diminished expectations of rate increase by years end. his similar story when you look at emerging-market stocks today. the msci emerging market index heading for its highest close since august 11. so before the selloff, we see an increased flow into emerging markets as well. and finally, a quick check on gold, trading at its highest since july 6. you can see a better than .5%. scarlet: thank you. alix: jinx. since the beginning of october, , hostingmarket surge biggest short-term gains. scarlet: kim is advanced be sustained? joining us is vincent cignarella. we had a little august and september emerging market currency. things have turned around.
1:48 pm
the question is, we swung from extreme pessimism to extreme optimism. why exactly did they rally? somewhat. a lot of it is on the back of what happened with the federal reserve. anecdotal with the fed not emerging markets become an attractive place to be because of yield. and the carriage rate is reignited. scarlet: does any of this say we were really short, these high beta currencies and we're going to cover those shorts now because the fed didn't act? what part of that is going to be a technical basis? vincent: you are seeing the trade unwind and folks taking way verynt a very long quickly. it doesn't continue in one direction at all, all the time. the fed in some of the data took some of that the gas out of that trade and you are seeing serious profit-taking. some folks are getting back into
1:49 pm
long positions, they do offer a very attractive interest rate differential trade. if the ideas the fed isn't going to do anything until next year, there is some time to perhaps earn some kerry and make some money. scarlet: hsbc was comparing what we saw in the emerging-market currencies this time of what we saw in say the 1990's. are we at the point of a crisis? vincent: it's not a crisis. it was a complete the different situation. this is backed by the people's bank of china. with 3.5 trillion reserves behind any tacit uploads. there's a lot of ammunition to slow this. will it continue? it's very likely. the foreign reserves of the chinese government continue to decline. it is still a down trend. as far as global growth is
1:50 pm
depressed, those reserves will continue to be deflated. mentally get to the point where that is the crisis issue i would say to look at. once china and watch china reserves. alix: looking at the dollar, weekendtanley had this and talk about the dollar, that we have seen peak dollar that's why you're seeing a change in the momentum trading in the s&p. we are selling health care and biotech and we're going to buy industrial energy. you laugh i said peak dollar. vincent: i try to make the higher the lows, that's why on the side of the business. it's the most dangerous game to try and take the high or low at anything. if you want to say perhaps temporarily, given what we've talked about in the fed not doing anything for a while, they give some room for the dollar to trend sideways and maybe decline. but monetary policy diversions favors the u.s. longer-term. the next step of the fed will be to increase, where you have the
1:51 pm
majority of countries around the world with potentially decreasing. as long as the market is focusing on interest-rate and monetary policy being the driver of currencies, then i think the fed has to move. scarlet: thank you, vincent cignarella. he chuckled when you said that. alix: coming up on the "bloomberg market day," you are now watching a live shot of the press conference of princeton university professor angus deaton, who won the nobel prize in economics. his research focuses on consumers in poverty and we learn more about him when we come back. ♪

the winner of a nobel prize in economics. deaton, a professor at princeton. he analyzes consumption, poverty, and wealth. in awarding the prize, they stated to design economic policy that promotes welfare and reduces policy -- poverty, you must understand individual conception courses. angus deaton has enhanced this understanding. for more context, we bring in brendan greeley. tell us more about angus dean himself, how is he seen by his peers? brandon: you should look at the state of economics before angus deaton and after augustine. economics was moral philosophy, we imagine what people might do when we build models around these assumptions of what those people might do. angus eaton is amazing with data. he looked at household survey data and he made 11 advances in
