11:36 am
thank you for joining us today. market equities have been remarkably resilient today. will the french and eurozone economy prove as resilient to the worst terror attack on european soil in over a decade? >> it is a good question. we're definitely in my view at a turning point. that turning point is already, you can see it from a geopolitical standpoint. different blocks around the world are getting together and action is taking place quickly. from a macro economy standpoint, there are different factors. there is a direct impact on terrorism but 10% of global gdp, 9% of the french gp, quite large around the world. if we had more attacks, i clearly think the industry is susceptible to weakness. the psychological factor in
11:37 am
terms of business and consumer confidence, it is something interesting because there is a number of times where there are isolated cases and isolated events. at some point, they get link .nto a pattern i am not sure if we are at a tipping point but we are close and this is hard to judge. it is something we have to be careful about. people are quite confident, we are having a lot of action taking place and that is good, but we have to remember we are a fragile global environment. in europe,waiting where the environment is weak. japan is showing us negative numbers and even in the u.s., things are slowing. it does not take much. i hope i am wrong and i hope the
11:38 am
turning point is only in geopolitics. betty: i agree it does seem like we're at a political turning point and it comes at a fragile time when people are wondering whether the fed and the gdp continue to alter their policies. them it is too early for to do so? >> i agree and that is the last point i wanted to make. janet yellen has made it clear that looking at the global ,nvironment was very important feeling that the u.s. economy is possibly ready to have the normalization in small steps, but that she wanted stability around the world. if other potential events bring financial markets into a much more volatile stage, it could have an impact on her decision. mark: does the chances than of a fed rate hike in december come of events in paris on friday? they were hovering just low 70%. do they deserve to come down or
11:39 am
not? personally, think since we do not have any terror attacks, they are still on track. if we had more between now and december, chances are, it would come down. still cameecb, is it on? what variety, what sort of stimulus? >> it is hard to say because we have had the guidance that mario draghi gave us. probably other instruments. probably longer. probably not equity would be my debt. just on the last know that mark mentioned, i'm looking at fed futures and we are just sort of stuck here at the 65% range on whether the fed will hike rates. do, if we do see more terrorist attacks, could they plunge the u.s. economy or the
11:40 am
global economy into a recession? >> whenever you are in tight growth, chances are, let's put it this way. chances are higher that we go back into a difficult environment if we have more attacks. know global growth is already slowing and chinese growth is theing and we know europe, last quarter numbers were not stronger than before. we know we have a slowdown pattern. possible. i think it is not the central case at this point, but it is possible. mark: thank you for joining us today. great to chat with you. the founder and managing director of global pfizer's. of the mostwas one interesting pieces of research i've read today, posing the question, what happens when a succession of isolated events creates a pattern. it is something we will have to

11:46 am
concerned, putting troops in syria would be a big mistake. in addition to that heut the criticism is not willing to do more. the bottom line is he is doing what he thinks is best. that means not putting ground troops in syria. putin, the g-20 summit, had to leave early. he was under pressure because of ukraine. how things change. obama and he were in a huddle earlier. back in the full? -- is putin back in the fold? report -- ietter asked him and he said he did get the sense that some countries in the west wanted closer relations in russia and were prepared to deal with russia appeared he said that is understandable because some issues no matter

how powerful you are or capable you are, you cannot decide on your own. he said he had sensed there was a readiness to work together, at least he put it on the expert level. perhaps not president obama or him personally, but there was a positive message from the russian president that he and rush are ready to work with the west. back to you. betty: thank you, ryan reporting for us in turkey. i want to go to france but first, mark. mark: the french president called on the french people to show perseverance and dignity. joining us now is our very own brendan greeley. you were out on the street yesterday far from the clan and france. how would you say paris is coping with the second terrorist attack in the space of 11 months?
