7:04 am
he goes into detail about what he is not going to do. they are going to lay off employees and cut branches. lower risk profile. i understand in a sense what deutsche bank is not going to be doing. what is it going to be? what is the high ground that deutsche bank is going to occupy? stephanie: it is going to be empty. david: what is the message? message?t is the deutsche bank will still be one of the biggest banks in europe. they still looking at 1.2 billion, trillion, sorry leverage. consist of something. the business they still want to be in is investment banking. they will be the biggest investment bank in europe. one of the largest asset and wealth managers in the world. they have almost as much as credit squeeze under management. there are still the leading bank in german retail and one of the four top global transaction banks in the world.
7:05 am
is a lot of business they can do. they talked more about what they did not want to do. stephanie: there's a lot of business they have lost. let's talk about deutsche bank's market share. leag i'm looking at the tables on the bloomberg terminal. you can see deutsche bank is still number three but they have come down two positions. if i click market share difference, deutsche bank is the of market share. down below hsbc and barclays. christine, i'm curious about the message to the employees of deutsche bank and the customers. when they wake up and read this, what do they get excited about? christine: this is really a message for investors. , as we pointed out, has been the worst performing european banks stock. it is valued at half of book value or something close to
7:06 am
that. investors have gotten impatient. you see that in other banks. that is why credit suisse is doing what it is doing. barclays is naming a new ceo. investors have had it with low returns. the message is to investors that we are taking action. carl icahn is taking after aig saying you got to boost your returns and should split up. the same dynamic is going on with the banks that have been muddling along and not able to produce decent returns. employees, itd means fewer. deutsche bank is saying they will focus on 30% of customers to produce 80% of revenue. stephanie: from an investor standpoint, you are calling it a going tog, they are clean house. i've spoken to six deutsche bank employees this morning who have likeget me out of here yesterday. if they don't have the possibility of being in a major
7:07 am
business and getting paid top dollar, why would they want to work there? i guess the u.s. part of the deutsche bank investment bank will not be one of the top layers in the market anymore. i think deutsche bank will focus most of its business activities and investment banking on europe . that is where they are strong and do not have the regulatory disadvantage. for investors we have two years of no dividends but we do not have a capital increase. that is important for shareholders of deutsche bank that we do not get more dilution. stephanie: if you are going to be a niche player and focus on europe, why would you work for a global bank and have overhead? why not work or your paid a real dollars? of then some parts business, deutsche bank will be competitive in the u.s. in the trading part, leveraged finance, cme's, this is where
7:08 am
deutsche bank will be strong. in the rates business they've never been a top-five player in the u.s. with other regulatory non-us that come from banks it does not pay and it is deficient to get out. the employees can go. wanttine: in fact, they them to. the shares have reacted very strongly to this news, even though a lot of this has been telegraphed, including the dividend cut and that they were going to cut jobs and businesses. why do you think the shares are reacting so badly today. was there a surprise that people did not expect anything negative in the results? thought the results were pretty positive. the capital ratio was better than we thought. the only real negative was the dividend a mission for next year , which was not really expected. the press conference this morning, the new ceo is a pretty
7:09 am
downbeat person and he probably presented it in a way where everyone probably thought the world was ending. he put a focus on the fact that funny 16 and 2017 will be bad years. the shares opened positive and turned negative during the press conference. stephanie: dirk becker of kepler cheuvreux and christine harper from bloomberg news. staying in germany, batons at reported third-quarter earnings this morning, beating estimates -- wisconsin -- lufthansa reported third-quarter earnings this morning, beating estimates. we are joined by carsten spohr. a very good quarter for you. you are looking ahead to the fourth quarter, how are you going to keep this pace? this has been a very good year, businesswise.
7:10 am
the main reason is something that makes me optimistic. it is strong positive feedback from customers about our investments into quality and turning lufthansa into the premium airline in europe. my optimism also carries me in the remaining quarter. much of the uptick was because of fuel costs? surely fuel has created a tailwind for us and any other airline. besides that we see two very important elements. the positive customer reaction to our quality investment and secondly, for the first time ever, turnaround into the black for our secondary brand germanwings, serving .2 point traffic in europe. it is an important part of our strategy. stephanie: ryanair is targeting germany. could you end up in a price war? they are very good. carsten: the low-cost
7:11 am
penetration into the german market is much lower than the other markets in europe. this is part of the strong position of lufthansa, which has shown we are willing to defend our market. with germanwings we have the marketool to defend our with profit. this is why it is important that for the first time we are showing black figures on germanwings. stephanie: what happens to your market went deutsche bank is firing tens of thousands of employees. that is a lot of business travelers who pay full fare. what could happen to your prices? carsten: the dependence of the single customer is limited due to the size of our network. big german blue-chip companies are premium customers and we are they're told to connect to the world. germany being the second-biggest
7:12 am
export nation has huge international links, which lufthansa is part of. this is not good news but i'm sure we will compensate with others in case there's a drop in the individual customer segment. chairman andnsa ceo carsten spohr. lufthansa was an important client for me in europe. i spent a lot of hours in your headquarters. nice to have you with us on a very good day for you. , details emerging from an important meeting in china regarding the future of its economy. we head to asia on "bloomberg ." ♪

7:17 am
following the story. as we woke up this morning in new york, a couple things jumped out. 6.5% growth targets, it appears. also the moving away from the one child policy. what struck you about what we have learned so far? the one child policy mood is very significant on so many levels. china has a declining working age population. they need to counter that. they have a demographic problem because it is about keeping the economy growing. even by moving on the one child policy, that will not change things overnight. it takes a while to change the demographics of a country. it is a step towards countering problems down the road as we see in japan and other asian countries. you mentioned the growth figure. premier li floated the idea that %hina needs to be heading 6.53 growth over the coming years.
7:18 am
that is a long way from double-digit figures china grew at in previous decades. still a positive in some respects. stephanie: chinese stocks have posted the biggest three-day loss in some time. do we think an announcement like that could cause a turnaround? there are different factors driving the chinese stock market. some people say it is disconnected from what is happening in the real economy and he may. -- anyway. chinese stocks are driven by soe reforms, state enterprises dominate so much of china. prater detail on how china wants to continue to transform the economy for consumptions and services, that would flow to stocks. it is a little too early for stocks to take a significant direction out of the economic blueprint because we have to wait for all of the details.
7:19 am
matt: i thought the same thing, it is going to take dinner and drinks and nine months before this comes to fruition. stephanie: more like 10. stocks that look at make baby formula, as soon as we got the headline that china was one childnd the policy we had a shot up. that wille products benefit from this, investors are already starting to think in that mindset, how can we make money? david: it is on the horizon, at least. thank you very much, enda curran in tokyo on the update of the plenum. preet bharara will -- stephanie: will washington agree to a budget deal? the former white house chief of staff will be joining us. tweet us and join the conversation. you are watching "bloomberg ." ♪

stephanie: you are watching "bloomberg ." we've like to welcome president of the american action forum and former director of the congressional budget office. yesterday the house passed a two-year budget deal that needs to be approved by the senate. welcome. i am going to deliver our early-morning cynicism. is this something to be excited about? do we ever see these budgets turn into anything? this one is a deep sigh of relief. i don't think you should get excited. we are going to raise the debt ceiling and fund the government. we are not going to have the dysfunction that is harmful. to get that done, the deal is preempted in the -- pretty empty in the end. david: it is kicking the can. doug: large entitlement programs
7:24 am
are growing rapidly. this deal does not really touch that. it spends more money on defense and other things people want and promises this time it will be different, we will cut it at the end. stephanie: until we attack entitlement reform it is a waste of time? doug: it is the number one problem. about want to be serious the budget, you reform social security so it does not blow up on people and eu fix medicare so it does not run a $300 billion deficit. if you do not do that, you are playing at the edges. david: is there any political leader on the national stage that you see who is trying to address this seriously? paul ryan has had a series of proposals. we saw paul krugman go after ryan about the validity of his plans. is anybody doing anything serious? ryan did withl medicare was say i've looked around the world and what we've seen is going from a defined
7:25 am
benefit plan to a defined contribution plan, why don't we do that with medicare? that is a serious policy effort. mr. krugman might not like it but it is an effort to take on the numbers and substance of health care. attracts what united states corporations have done. doug: let's take what you got in your job and make it portable to take to medicare. nothanie: paul krugman is saying he does not like paul ryan's approach. he's saying the numbers do not add up. doug: i beg to differ. the whole point is to make them add up. a lot of points come to balance it one thing i thought we learned from last night was there is a great resonance to getting the budget to balance. when john kasich about balancing the budget, people pay attention. david: nobody wants their own ox to be gored. doug: that is what paul ryan is a smart guy. he has always wanted to solve these problems. go to washington to
7:26 am
become the speaker. without presidential leadership, none of this gets done. stephanie: that is not how the american people vote. when it comes to how people vote, they simply say do not touch my entitlement. doug: they always have. i think this is going to change. when you look at the numbers in the last year of the second term of whoever we elect out of the are going to have a $1 trillion deficit. 800 billion dollars of it is going to the interest. we are borrowing to pay off borrowing and that is driven by entitlement. stephanie: misery. david: you got an economist. stay with us on "bloomberg ," tom keene and his morning must-read. ♪ the only way to get better is to challenge yourself,

they haven't on tax reform, and therefore the fed is left as the only sort of adult in the room. one can question whether they are acting -- >> the reality is the fed normalizes as rest -- whether theyonder preserve the option now would as it were, for the fed. >> they are right on the edge. it is a really nice way of putting it that they are back to 50-50. they have options to go either way. but i would suggest that the options for the american people aren't there. and that these policies clearly approved to the halves -- haves. that is good benefits. >> right, and everyone, including the republicans at the debate last night, talk about helping the middle class, talk about income equality, but no one -- congress, specifically -- put anything together to help them.

barclays said third-quarter profits fell 10%, missing estimates. the second-biggest bank and the u.k. has been restructuring and cutting costs. they named a new ceo yesterday, aiming to complete what he calls a necessary transformation of the investment bank. cheaperzon will offer ways to connect gadgets like smoke detectors to the internet. starting in the first quarter, verizon will offer options that use less overheads so that devices can connect to the web for less. and that is the news you need to know at this hour. david: thank you. establishment candidates raised their voice last night in the third republican presidential debate. the first debate of the season supposedly focused on the economy. mark halperin joins us from colorado, where i expect he has been up all night. mark, while compared you want to start out with your report card
7:43 am
-- mark, welcome. you want to start out with your report card? mark: sure. i did sleep for about three hours, but i did dream about the debate. the top three people in my grades, a minuses for the two young senators, rubio and cruz, both of whom now have a chance to reshape the campaign. they showed what they got last night. they showed what their strengths are. governor christie did quite well. the two current national front-runners, carson and trump, i have them next. i thought they did fine. the person who made the most news last night made the news by doing poorly. jeb bush did poorly overall. he had a horrible face-off with marco rubio. and in a financial world, you are already seeing the rubio high command reaching out to the bush people saying, onboard with us. that will be one of the critical things to watch in the next few days.
7:44 am
they are very, very panicky now about his performance. stephanie: the finance team, you're talking about fundraising. let's talk about the economy and who laid out their plan. last night was supposed to be about the economy. >> you may have had it as good as you can have it with 10 people on the stage all trying to interrupt each other. they have all laid out plans, whether any of them explain their plans and had an opportunity to engage with each other over the pros and cons of their plans is questionable. and i think some people -- >> if you just sort of look at areas, tax policy, regulation reform, medicare reform, social security reform, jeb bush has plan after plan after plan. you don't get that out of that debate last night. stephanie: where is jeb bush's mojo? this is why wall street got behind him. policy one to
7:45 am
[laughter] get you elected president. [laughter] >> you also have to remember we are in october. people have to go and vote. and i think we love these events and there are lots of fun to watch, but the fact of the matter is people at home overtime will make a decision. and when they go to vote for president, they take this process very seriously. >> i agree with that. one of the things that happened last night as we saw the insider thecruz's --bio's, the cruz's, take on the outsider types. and if you look at the policy specifics on the outside, there is not much there. >> i agree with doug. i think the outside is lost. david: and there is a certain amount of theater in all of this. but there is bit.ly supposed to be some substance as well. if you get kind of that report card and come back to the basic
7:46 am
question, for example, john kasich talked about that a fair amount. how would your report card look different if you are just grated on the substance of your economic statements last night? mark: look, secretary daley is right. 10 people on the stage with that format, you are not going to hear detailed policy plans. a lot of the candidates do have plans, but part of the job of president he is not can you explain your plan in a minute? or can you inspire people to sense that you have a broadvision and you are making a party trying to fix our entitlement system. so i think governor christie probably did the best on that yesterday. and, by the way, he has some of the most detailed plans. stephanie: but in terms of performing, it feels as though chris christie has had his thunder stolen from donald trump in terms of being the straight talking, tough guy. doesn't that turn chris christie into a secondary character here? mark: well, to some extent,
7:47 am
donald trump has turned everybody into a second character. but governor christie's bed is that in the end, people will want a fighter, but also someone with a governing record. there is not a perfect candidate in the race. this is like a combination of roller derby and single elimination death match. and if you look at the brawl -- part of politics -- chris christie is as good as anybody in this race at trapping and fighting. if it ends up being christie versus trump, they are trump. but i think governor christie could hold his own in that fight , particularly in the republican party going back to reagan that has always nominated such a candidate. >> we tend to think of these debates as being appealing to the voters. but there is another issue, people voting with their money. what is the story behind rubio
7:48 am
going after jeb bush's money? >> obviously, they are from the same state. the bush family has deep ties nationwide with funders. i think they will stay with him a little longer than mark thinks. david: will stay with bush? >> will stay with bush a little longer. but there is so much money out there. and they can move so quickly that i think rubio is going to take advantage of a very good performance. even though there -- they are only established because trump, carson, and fiorina are not establishment. it is a whole new definition going on. stephanie: john kasich has been doing sort of a money tour in new york over the past month. he excellent made some comments last night really saying i am the only one who has actually done this. >> i am the only person on the stage that was actually involved in the chief architect of balancing the federal budget.
7:49 am
you can't do it with empty promises. stephanie: is that fair? you might say it has never been done. >> i think there are two things there. number one, all the governors run on their record. that is how they play this game. but he talked about balancing the budget. that is a really important thing to the american people. people want to see the budget balanced. they think it will help the economy. he has been involved in that process. david: mark, a one-word answer if you can. what is the deal with john kasich? we have had a number of wealthy people on the set saying he -- they like john kasich, if he doesn't seem to get traction. mark: he needs to get better known and he needs to drive a consistent message. he didn't pull it off effectively. david: ok. thanks very much. stephanie: bill, if you had one take away that you would like to see in the next debate -- i mean, yes, all of us would say there was too much fighting.
7:50 am
we didn't really get to hear what we needed to. how can we in the next debate? bill: i think there has to be a little more discipline by the moderators, to be honest you. everyone was interrupting each other. if you are watching on television, it was kind of hard to follow the whole thing. and it became more of an event than a discussion. and chris christie lay that out, as did cruz. you have to get more control of the moderator. >> i am going to agree with that, but here is the example. towards the end, there was a moment where there was a serious question about rick adelman form. rand paul saying wait, that is not going to work. jeb bush chimed in. so have some questions about retirement -- entitlement reform. don't do this person-to-person question. stephanie: i forgot he was there. [laughter] >> rand paul was out on the end, too. >> the one thing i took away --

8:31 am
was the survey. we actually got 1.3%. the fed is trying to get us that 2% level and having real trouble getting there. we have initial jobless claims that came in lower than expected, which is a good thing for the country. 260,000. we were looking for 265,000. i know that mark, more important, will look at the four-week moving average. if you take a look at this trend of initial jobless claims, you see it down, down, down. fedreally here, this is why rate hike expectations will be rising. on the other hand, inflation is not coming, and that is why they will be falling. david co so, mark, not being a economist, my reaction is sort of meh. likely, thehan weakness is due to less inventory indication.
8:32 am
the underlying rate of growth in the economy distracting from inventory and other data is probably about 2.5% to 3%, which is not too bad. in q4, the current quarter, we probably get a growth rate closer to three. the best number to look at is consumer spending, housing, investment. i have not seen the data, but my guess is it came in around three. stephanie: mr. rick? rick: i think that is right. there is focus on a couple of hints of gdp data. we are coming off pretty strong quarter before that. i think the number -- by the way, showing at a global economy, that is drifting a bit in terms of growth, but i would not say this is a disappointing number at all. mark: the number that matters for the set is that initial run

from insurance. 260 is about as low as it ever gets. that suggests the job market is creating 150,000, 200,000 per month. that is the bar set for the first rate hike. --phanie co so you think : so you think there could be action? mark: i think that she could raise rates. for personal 3.2% consumption. you can see that we are at a relatively high level. this chart goes back 15 years. we are at a level that basically is consistent with the early part of the last decade, and that was strong growth. david: i think you have strong growth about -- strong views about what measurement we should be looking at. mark: we are changing the
8:34 am
technology being used in the world today. we are going through this extraordinary change. think about the greatest technology change arguably in the last 20 or 30 years. if oil prices were three times higher than where they are today, you would see gdp growth would be up to 2% higher than where it is today. technology is changing. ofs focus on a lower rate growth, i do not think it is measured right. a construct of the economy -- we talk about consumption. why does consumption continue to be strong? what technology is doing -- mark: if you just took the price withel and if you take that transportation and the multiplier, you would have a significantly higher rate of gdp. the point being, we are not

capturing, when you look at gdp, output in the world, it is lower because so much is less expensive than it used to be. want to talk inflation for a moment. what constitutes good inflation versus bad inflation? it amazing. you see economist in the world with this discussion of two, that there is some magic around the two number. when you break down things particularly when you think about the lower and middle income, where do you want to have inflation but you do not necessarily want higher inflation? we break things down like food, energy, which you would want prices to be lower. you would want a lower level of inflation. then you want the housing market to trend higher. that what iswed happening to bad inflation, think about how efficiently are in terms of food consistency. int is happening to energy

the good inflation, i.e., houses and use cars, which are helpful to consumption, they are moving nicely in a gradually higher pace. we break it down. has ishe target the fed 2%, and that is about as low as they want to go. that is appropriate because when you get into a troubled economy or recession, you want to get real interest rates going down. that is difficult to do if inflation is too low. think about japan. japan has a difficult problem because inflation is as low as it is. mark: inflation is a combination of the good inflation and bad inflation. you say they good inflation may be higher than we think it is and the bad inflation lower. the one number and they say two is magic. there is an incredible impact on the economy and consumption when you dissect the good versus the bat. is a differentt

8:38 am
breakeven rates, this is an outlook as to where inflation is going to be. the red line obviously is the 2% level. right now we're at about 1.84%. i wonder -- is that a place where you feel comfortable right now? mark: it is one thing the witness that articulates. inflation expectations are incredibly important. two,e spot rate is under there is a dynamic that drives capex. if your expectations is that the economy is improving and that there is pricing power, it is more important than if we are sitting at a spot level inflation that is lower. rick: that is too low, too. at 1.8%, if you took your chart that, that is a -- if you took your chart back, that is a low expectation. you can see that obviously we are at a low point we have not
8:39 am
seen since that matt: you can see that obviously we are at a low point we have not seen since 1999. rick: these data are skewed by liquidity issues and measurement issues. regardless, this is another reason why they want to get inflation higher. in terms ofut measurement and the way we look at data, we live our lives in a completely different way at this point. rick is smiling. we talk about disruption, but the role technology plays in our lives is so drastically different from 1999 until today. so do we need to be using different measures to evaluate the economy, our behavior? 100%. you think about how you order cars, how you book in the system. stephanie: i call a travel agent. mark: there is a discussion about productivity. we are not seeing productivity growth like it is an indictment
8:40 am
on the human race. the fact of the matter is technology today is geared the way we used to at a lower price, more efficiently. you think about self-driving cars, how everything in our lives today is done at a lower cost point. it creates and improves the standard of living and it means you can operate higher growth with a lower rate of inflation. evidencere is a lot of that you are right. i am sympathetic that we are not ,easuring what is going on particularly on the services side of the economy well. but research that is available suggests that measured properly, it would be .2%, maybe .3% pram to gdp growth. that is academic research. mark: there is a tremendous amount of academic research that does not calculate multiplier facts. here is the number when you drop
8:41 am
oil prices, what it does. however, what happens is it gets in the chemicals and transportation and plastics and you create this tremendous multiplier. what is it when you move the price of oil around or gas? it does not take the multiplier effect. rick: i have not run across a person that is more bullish than i am. and he is a fixed income guy. it is bizarre. do they even listen to you in your world? i talked to a lot of fixed income people and they are very negative. that is unusual. i have to listen to you more. you soie: mark, thank much. mark zandi, chief economist at moody's. , thank you so much. the. frank act getting its first test in court. ♪

david: welcome back to "bloomberg ." in a vocabulary lesson, at least for me, there is a new world called spoofing, and it is getting a big test. a jury is hearing arguments in chicago in the first ever criminal trial related to this high frequency trading act, deemed a legal by dodd frank. ger is with us. kerry, set this up. explain it to us. kerry: basically this case is looking to see if the chicago-based trader spoofed the market. what is spoofing? you put out a whole bunch of orders into the market and then you cancel them, and the illegal part of that is the intent to cancel. so if you can cancel an order,
8:46 am
no problem. but if you put the order out with plans to cancel it, that is considered illegal. spoofing became a legal -- although it has always been a regulatory infraction under the futures regulator cftc -- it became illegal under dodd frank in 2010-2011. since then we have seen a couple high profile cases. , is the in chicago first one to go to trial. tois going to set the stage see how prosecutors and regulators go after spoofing in the future. david: set up the size of this particular case. how many of these trades did he try to make? keri: at one point there were 14,000 trades. 14,000 trades and 96% of those during a one month time frame he actually canceled. he setindictment it says
8:47 am
up an algorithm to trade in the market, and he made the intent to cancel all those orders. that was all part of his computer program that he set up, and that is what is being presented to a jury in chicago. we will go back and talk about the fed strategy on this. technically, that is illegal under dodd frank. that is what we call spoofing. if he never intended to complete the trade, that is what makes it illegal. not intend tod cancel it and canceled it, he would not be on trial. >> is there an intent to cancel when you place the trade, before it is executed? there are a lot of legitimate user -- a legitimate reasons why the order would be placed or canceled. there has to be reasonable doubt that there was intent to cancel before the trade was executed. the very high standard -- because this statute has a
8:48 am
specific, precise type of intent that has to be shown. david: what is the evidence of that intent? this is not libor with their e-mails saying let's fix libor. keri: if you hire someone to do your out a rhythm and it is set up so that it cancels orders at to set up your out a rhythm -- your outdoor rhythm -- you are going to have computer evidence by the way these trades are programs. : it is built into the cancelsm and then it 96% of them. we are talking fast, milliseconds. so the jury is going to be asked to infer -- if you are canceling orders, thousands of them in milliseconds, did you ever go through with those
8:49 am
trades? matt: the reason you would do this, you could manipulate the price of things to go up or manipulate the price down. that is just the basics. if you take a look at trading, trading of oil futures. the green is electronic trading. you can see what happens here, 07-08,3, as we get into this does not happen. spoofing, you would probably get your lights knocked out if you did this a couple of times. it strikes me. you deal with these cases. this is the one where you may have to put the defendant on the stand. ithm says they are going to cancel, the jury would say, why would you do that unless your intent was to spoof?
8:50 am
andrew: i actually did intend to fill these orders and i filled some of them, i think is going to be the answer. some of them actually got filled. some of these transactions occurred. while they were open, they were legitimate orders. time, almost long attorney in a high-frequency trading world. the defense will have to convince the jury that even though it is only a second or a millisecond, computer program was intending to trade at least during that period of time. keri: part of the defense strategy is that this law is too vague to understand what it means. stephanie: remember how easy it was to write dodd frank? geiger and andrew finch, thanks. stay with us. you are watching "bloomberg ♪."
