treasury yields all along the way down the curve, down here. why aren't we taking advantage of this? steve: this is one of the things that is truly bothering markets. if we go into some kind of difficult situation here, this will be an unusual one in that it is being caused by government as opposed to caused by private actors like the mortgage crisis and being saved by government. governments are paralyzed around the world. look what's going on within the eurozone, what's going on within who don'the chinese seem to understand how to manage the market or even an economy. this is what scares the market. hens is the moment w government should be doing stuff. should have more investment in infrastructure taking advantage

david: steve ratner with us. yesterday, i sat down with jack lew. we talked about with the g20 could do at their upcoming shanghai meetings to stimulate global growth. i'm hopeful that this will be a g20 when we take the commitment we got in the last meeting for countries to refrain from the devaluation and push it a little bit and have that be something that is heard outside of a meeting room to reassure the world that that is a commitment taking seriously. -- taken seriously. david: is it a matter of taking the last communique and marking it out? >> these last months have made clear that the weakness in
8:17 am
demand globally is a problem that cannot be solved by everybody looking to the u.s. i've been telling my counterparts for couple years now, i think we're doing pretty well. they think we are doing pretty well. you cannot count on the united states providing all the demand for the world. we cannot be the consumer of first and last resort. in countries that have big economies, they need to use policy tools. when china looks at what it can do come and has to look at how to stimulate consumer demand. when europe asks what it can do with fiscal policy -- in a country like japan where there's been two decades of slower negative growth, they're careful not to make the mistake of stopping the economy with fiscal policies that put the brakes on and use the school policy to drive things forward.
8:18 am
there are structural issues that need to be addressed. issome countries come it regulatory come in some countries it is labor markets come in some countries it is structural reform. fiscal and monetary policy are important tools. that combined with sharing information about exchange rates, having a clear understanding that it is unacceptable to target exchange rates to gain unfair advantage outside of your country, that is question of who gets more of the existing pie, it does not grow the pie. as i've talked to my counterparts, they understand that that is not a direction we can go in. i'm hoping this g20 reinforces that. there's a lot of speculation in the world that these conversations could lead to different decisions. that is an important principle.
8:19 am
david: you started with global demand. say theeconomists problem we have to some extent is a demand problem at this point. do you hope the agreement coming out of g20 actually does have a specific -- have specifics about how global demand can be there are? jack: general principles that apply in different countries in different ways. there's always a lot of discussion about the words that no country wants to sign on to general words that it notes it will be inconsistent with. we are still going back and forth before we even meet on some of these issues. i don't think this is a moment in time when you will see individual countries make the kinds of specific commitments that have been made in some other contexts that have been
8:20 am
marked by real crisis. this is not a moment of crisis. you have real economies doing better than markets think in some cases. could bea future that influenced very much by the kinds of policies that are described and the ideas of how to avoid going to a place that you don't want them to go, that is a different conversation th an what to do when you are in the middle of a full-blown crisis. the only way to see communiques with that kind of detail is once you've gotten beyond the point. i'm hopeful the kind of conversation i'm describing moves the dialogue. if it were to go the other way and you were to see some evaluation, the that would be a cause of real concern because right now, it is a moment in time where if one
8:21 am
country were to move in that direction, there is a triggering effect of knock on policies and that would be a bad thing for the global economy. negativelead to very ramifications both economically and jim politically. -- geopolitically. these kinds of principles really matter. there is no substitute forcing your counterparts face-to-face and talking to them. david: the world will be watching. the markets will be watching. are you concerned that expectations may be too high about what the g20 can deliver? my response is sending a clear message, do not expect a crisis response in a noncrisis environment. of secretariesob ministers -- i have
8:22 am
in my conversations with my counterparts gotten a strong sense that there is serious attention being given to how to address the issues we are discussing. together, by having these conversations, we can lead to better outcomes. does that mean you will have estimates that each country will do in-house? that would not be the kind of expectation to have. unreasonable it is to have the expectations that coming out of this will be a more stable understanding of what the future may look like. an important thing. you look at the world's reaction to the policy making over the ,ast two months or six months it is underscored how communication of policy is critically important in order to the market and other counterparts around the world
8:23 am
know what you intend and what you can be expected to do. it is not just a challenge in china. it is a problem as each of us undertakes policies and these meetings are a chance to work through those. david: lack of global growth. we cannot be the consumer of first and last resort in the u.s. can you lead from that position? steve: he is right. we are doing better than other people. we cannot solve the world's problems. there are other regions that have more things they have to worry about than we do. the only two places i disagree with jack, there's a still things we can do and should be doing. structural reforms and better fiscal policy. , the risks aree greater than he seems to be willing to acknowledge, which i don't completely blame him for. there is more risk out there than is being conveyed. stephanie: matt miller? of $12.ld futures

8:37 am
what did you learn then that you need to apply now? david: i think we have to learn from our mistakes. now,nk that, particularly it is a good time to stay low leverage. when people are scared and worried it is a good time to look for opportunity. stephanie: where are you looking? david: here in new york city, new york has 58 million visitors a year. london has 17 million visitors a year. london, 137,000 hotel rooms, new york, 100,000 hotel rooms. that is really disproportionate. stephanie: jim tisch told david and i a few years ago we had 75,000 hotel rooms and now it is over 100,000. maybe we are faced with oversupply. david: compare that to london, triple the amount of visitors, less hotel rooms. to me there is something disproportionate.

airbnb, almost zero effect in new york. the price of a hotel in new york city despite the recession, down around 1%. stephanie: so jim tisch is wrong and you are not afraid of the power of airbnb whose valuation goes up by the second? david: millennials are not using airbnb. airbnb use in new york city is 5%. , we areare doing building a new brand called moxie. the size of the room is 175 square feet. when people come to new york city they are not looking for a big hotel room. it is not wichita, kansas. they want to come to their room and then they want to go to midtown.are, soho, they want a great shower, lots of outlets and they are willing to spend so you can go to airbnb in ozone park, queens, get into a room and take two trains,

8:46 am
steve: i think it may be that he is over performing with women and i sense because of the evangelical side but whatever. if you look at education level, trump has a higher percentage of people without a college degree than his principal competitors. and rubio is low. he does very well with well educated postgraduate types. if you look at income, trump has a higher percentage of people with income less than 50,000. it says you are looking at men, mostly white, without a college degree, with lower incomes. these are the people who have taken it on the chin in the last six or seven years. stephanie: how is that given that he is a new york businessman billionaire? many people had an issue when it came to mitt romney, why is it that non-college degree people with low incomes seem to like donald trump? steve: that is one of the great mysteries because nobody thought a billionaire of any sort could be successful. david: this is a little bit
8:47 am
reagan democrats isn't it? steve: reagan was not a billionaire. reagan had come from modest background and so on. ,f we look at the next chart what is going on in nevada, its economy has also suffered. it was heavily dependent on housing, the casino gamble industries at a very tough time during the recession. the unemployment rate in nevada went up as high as 14% and it is still well above the national average. a lot of those people we just identified are probably still unemployed. david: those under educated men are out of jobs and angry. steve: and if you look at the last chart you will see they also may be out of houses. nevada has the second-highest foreclosure rate in the country after new jersey which also got attention during this primary season stephanie:. if they are unemployed and angry
8:48 am
that would make one believe they are going to be angry with the current president. many people have said if donald trump is a republican candidate he is going to be handing this election to hillary clinton. isn't hillary clinton during the baton from obama and all of these americans who lost their jobs based with the housing crisis, they can't be happy with democrats? steve: i think that is right. all things being equal the should be a republican year. the problem trump has is that once you get away from his base and his base is 40% of the republicans at the moment, but once you get away from that group, i think there is a lot less enthusiasm. david: i was in washington yesterday and talked to al hunt and he noted that the negatives among republicans for trump are very high. 33% to 40%. he said he never saw anyone-- stephanie: when and if he becomes the candidate will they turn around? steve: he has massive negatives. if you look at the head-to-head polls nationally which are not that reliable at the moment,
8:49 am
hillary clinton versus cruz, rubio, trump, the only one she beats is trump. in those polls chooses to cruz and rubio. as a hillary supporter, i think this is a gift to hillary if trump gets the republican nomination. david: you cannot rule that out by a long shot. it looks like it is going that way. steve: al hunt things it is 85% or something like that. it is high. david: let's talk about an educated male, alexander hamilton. when i talked to jack lew, i said you're probably most famous for saying you would put a woman on the $10 bill. >> we are looking at exciting ways to tell more of the american story on our currency. i said over the summer that we were going to continue to honor alexander hamilton. an extraordinary play. he left an incomparable legacy

in terms of our financial and political system. he deserves the attention and credit he is getting. people should never have been worried we were going to do anything that would be to a race that memory but we will do some things. david: this has caused a lot of controversy. it has been postponed. a lot of people writing in and calling. steve: there should have been an easy out which is to put hamilton -- which is to put a woman on the $20 bill which has more in circulation to my get rid of jackson who was a disaster for the american economy and lee hamilton where he was. it is hard to find $10 bills. david: steve rattner, stay with us. we have an exciting segment. we all get to vote and steve -- stephanie: you will be our guest judge. ♪

between equities and with crude. people can argue against it all they want. it will not break down. an investor spoke to stephanie earlier and he said some thing interesting. riskid, i can only be long if we are long energy at the same time. the you not subscribe to that at all? katie: i think it is more about getting volatility out of the price of oil. less see some clearing and volatility that could be a mortgaged up the backdrop for risk assets. in the short term the correlation has been high and that could persist for some time but it will eventually break down. we are asking clients to take a medium to long-term view and we would argue this is an important time to stay invested in and he markets and possibly a good moment to increase exposure. david: when you talk about volatility in the oil price you paid it back on supply. putting it simply, is saudi arabia winning on their strategy? -- when youuld think about the supply situation

drops. a bet against growth and inflation. if you look at the bond market, havens, japanese 10 year yields, negative. german 10 year yields riding back toward what he 15 lows ahead of a central bank meeting at the ecb two weeks away. koch, it is almost a event -- a bet against everything that is good. katie: we would say whether you look around the world -- when you look around the world, spreads widening, you talked about sovereign in the credit space or the fact that fund managers have record high caste positions, putting all of that together market is telling us growth is bad. taking a step back from that what we are trying to do is rigorous research to look at the real economic data and engage with ceos around the world. what we are seeing is growth looks ok. we think the fundamentals are significantly stronger than what the market is suggesting.
9:09 am
over the long term this will work itself out. stephanie: ceos are hamstrung in an environment of short-term. carnival, one company actually spending and the market does not like it. if you are a ceo you are forced to look at external factors. katie: i think that is true in terms of stock price that in terms of operating environment a lot of ceos see a good operating environment. -- we wouldsumer agree with that. the u.s. consumer looks quite strong. we have a consumer that is saving, the savings rate has gone up dramatically since the crisis. they are actually spending. consumer spending was up 3% last year and is on track to do something like that this year. i'm not sure what more we can ask. david: how'd you account for this difference of views between the markets and underlying economy? jack lew basically set a version of that going to the g 20.
9:10 am
steve rattner said the markets are trying to tell you something. who is right? katie: a great point. we are humble and we look at the markets and try to understand what they are telling us but the markets are a barometer of emotionality and sentiment. the fundamentals are what we think will play out in longer-term. i think you take advantage of the tips that happened because of sentiment and anchor yourself in the fundamentals and that is a wealth creating opportunity. david: the british pound continues to slide. now at its weakest level against the dollar since 2009. wouldists say in and it be so devastating to the pound that it would sink to levels not seen since 1985. i will start with you, jon. i don't quite get this. a brexit has been in the air for a long time. cameron says he things he can sell the british people. what is going on here? jonathan: we will get a lot of
9:11 am
uncertainty between now and then. what we have seen is that it is going to get ugly. you don't want an ugly uncertain referendum for months. what i will say, the u.k. runs a huge current account deficit. it is the elephant in the room and has been for a long time. many effects traders have set for ages the pound should not be where it is. at one. at 1:40 -- i know this is a big question to ask and i want to emphasize a do not think that is what happening now. at what point does this become a run on a currency? katie: that is not our biggest case. you have inside because you just made a brexit. jonathan: i have to say, at the wrong time. katie: we do not think that is the biggest case. when we look at the brexit
9:12 am
scenario, we think it is unlikely. we think there will be a lot of volatility. the currency was one we have been talking about for some time. expect to see that persist until june. in our equity portfolios we underweight the u.k. because of some of this uncertainty but our biggest case scenario is that it is not going to pass. jonathan: i think the standout that we maybe have not spoken about, the pound selling off, yields are going lower. is there a reason for that? have a very't strong beer but i would say that is probably in line with what we are seeing on sovereign debt across the world and that is probably wrapped up into broader risk. david: it is up to the british people to say whether they will stay in or out. have you done any -- have you seen what the actual effects would be? i saw one study that says going into 2030 the range was between
9:13 am
.8 in terms of gdp. keepingery big picture, those things together would seem to make long-term economic sense. jonathan: also, a big trade deficit for the u.k. runs with europe. europe, u.k., that is a big climb for them. you would help even if there is an exit you get some swiss like trade agreement. the interest for both of them to do that, irrelevant despite whatever happens after the vote. david: those are the storied as bash the stories that matter to markets now. much more ahead on bloomberg go including tom petri. and hisctations on oil views on the opec freeze. ♪

9:23 am
we met with the central bank governor and he made it clear that if they stayed on the path of can fiscal -- of fiscal consolidation will get monetary policy good for equity markets. demographics look attractive to read one million people entering the workforce in india every month for the next 15 years. david: an amazing number. jonathan: i remove or a line from katie's sermon. in japan they sell more geriatric diapers and baby diapers. i just wonder in india. katie: baby diapers is a good product to own a many emerging markets with that demographic. 70% of the people are under the age of 30. demographics correlate to long-term growth prospects. infrastructure has been talked about for a long time in india but going around the country, meeting with ceos and policymakers really build up our belief that we are on the precipice of something important. already they are laying 30 kilometers of roadway a day in india, up three times over the past five years. the other opportunity that is
9:24 am
interesting is in the telco space. one billion cell phone users in india. more people have a cell phone in india than they have access to a toilet for example. matt: i have a chart that shows flows are coming drastically out of india over the past half year. i wonder why. what are we missing here? as i said earlier it seems to be the only letter left standing as far as the brick countries are concerned. katie: therein lies the opportunity. we have had a lot of investors voting with their feet against emerging markets outflows in india in particular are you did this is a reflection of people being scared. this is the moment we would encourage people to be bold, stick with positioning, and add to it. stephanie: nearly risk off. what is the rationale? matt: this chart on your #btv.erg, g# b stephanie: what is the rationale?

off.: i think it is risk emerging markets do more poorly in an environment where there is less risk appetite and people are reacting to that end with the are scared they are buying gold and selling emerging markets. jonathan: how much of it is his appointment about modi? katie: clearly there was a lot of optimism based into this government. if you actually look at india equity market performance to be fair rallies four months before his election and outperform markets. there is some of that good news into it. the only ground, meeting with people, expectations may have been high. we think a lot of these reforms are going to get pushed through and we are starting to see progress like the progress i pointed to on infrastructure. stephanie: what is your biggest concern? you have to have some fears. katie: i think the execution, that the bureaucracy does not stand in the way of the reforms the government wants to put
9:26 am
through, that a sump and we continue to track closely. if you saw a big reversal in commodity and that started to put pressure on the situation that would be a negative as monetary policy could not be accommodative. making sure all of these people entering the workforce can be put to work effectively. if you are willing to take a long-term perspective the investment implications are positive. jonathan: we are minutes away from the cash open in new york city. futures negative across the board. a rough session in europe as well eeri. points to german tenure yield this morning. -- 10 year yield this morning. ♪

9:31 am
earlier and i agree with that area it is going to take a little while yet. we really have to see some of the fundamental's kick in on supply and demand. the supply side in north america, the curve has bent. that was the goal of the saudi's in the thanks giving surprise of 2014. we are down 500,000 barrels a day so far in terms of unconventional's. you don't see it in the u.s. because we brought on a number of deep water projects. the last of those comes on the first half of this year and you start to see the doubling of that unconventional. probably in the first three quarters of this year. stephanie: when financing for these companies dries up which it could do in the first quarter of this year, what could defaults look like? tom: we will get some defaults even without the financings drying up. the ones that are on life support at this point are probably dealing with negotiations, prepackaged
9:32 am
arrangements. it is underway and we will see more. there have been a couple dozen already if you count all that happened. relevant ones, about a half-dozen. stephanie: that number could double? put into context how big and that it could get. --: it will be as testing as in 40 years to have been three other times when this is happened. this will be as bad as the worst periods of those years. katie: you have some of the best relationships in the oil patch and i was curious if you have insights on consolidation. from our vantage point we would have expected to see more and how do you see that playing out. tom: the reason it has not happened as fast, the industry recognized right after the thanks giving surprise that they needed to do something. they came out and issued billions in new equity and
9:33 am
billions in longer-term debt. high-yield market was there. there was a presumption we were going to have this v shaped recovery. it was a failed v shaped. only in the best of cases accommodating on equities. nobody is questioning they will make across. there is no financing available now. it is gone. david: we want to check out the markets where they are. matt: before i go to markets let me ask you one question about a chart i have been looking at. david: i was wrong. matt: i am throwing an audible here. i've been looking at the number andistressed debt issues you can see from trace data that we have not been this high since 2009. almost all oil and energy.
9:34 am
how much of a concern is that? tom: it is a real concern. the interesting thing is so far it has not risen to the level -- there has been a little trepidation recently but not a lot of concern according to the banks that have financing out there that it is not going to be a big problem. those that are in the market are dispersed in the ownership. it is a manageable problem as far as i can see now but it is a booming business for reorganization. for the balance of this year and a good chunk of next year. david: now may we go to the markets? matt: let's look at weei, world equity indexes. in the u.s., we are down across the board. 1899, s&p 500 coming in under 1900. the dow jones industrial average coming down 184 points three and the nasdaq, let's look at some of the stocks that are trading here on new york and see how they are doing.
9:35 am
starting with target and lows. we had shannon pettypiece breaking the target earnings. she did a great job of explaining they were not only better than expected but pointing to pretty good things and as a result target is up about 1%. 3.5%., down we had a number of earnings out in the retail sector and we continue to cover that on bloomberg go. the oil patch, how the falling oil price is affecting stocks. .xxon mobil down 1.4% chevron down 1.6%. conoco phillips down 1% even. i can see that oil continues to come down. down 3.8% right now so we are looking at a price of $30 62 one cents per barrel. $30.61 seems to be -- per barrel.
9:36 am
i showed you all of the german automakers were down. ,mw, volkswagen, and daimler all down. the same is true in the u.s. julie told you about ford recalls but they are not that big of a deal. this is a global risk off trade and for some reason the automakers have taken the brunt of investors' concerns even though the auto sales market does well. , this company has had a rough time. it is down 16% because its outlook is well under the street's estimate. they had earnings forecast for 330 at the most. if you take a look at the year-to-date chart of avis budget they are off about 50%. this is the year-to-date chart, down 31%. a full year chart, 12-month chart, they are down more than 50%. it has been a tough --
9:37 am
rainy innocence you is standing by. ramy: the nasdaq is down by about 1.3% following what is happening with the s&p 500 as well as the dow. tech shares year to date have been doing the worst out of our three majors down 11% or so year to date and their biggest fall since 2008. there is some green that is happening. i want to focus on dreamworks. yesterday they said their fourth quarter profit blew past estimates. shares right now are up by more than 5%. at the the earnings released tuesday they did rally as much as 12% and this has to do with what ceo jeff katzenberg is doing. he is shifting focus from feature films to dreamworks' tv business and home video business. it expects 30% higher revenue from its tv business in 2016 year on year. matt: i was going to ask about
9:38 am
dreamworks of it. such an interesting story because they are having a problem in their movie unit. we talked about kung fu panda but overall they are reorganizing that unit. it was such a big success and now it is not. stephanie: if you look at the way the models are changing, they are changing to lower-cost content in terms of production. david: a hit driven business. if it is a success they go way up and if they do not have one for years ago way down. stephanie:. if you are meet you by three copies of the dvd, lunchboxes and about 17 plus toys. us., thank you for joining i want to keep this conversation going. with oil down a percent over the last two days when you look at some of these opportunities, are someessed investments --
9:39 am
would say you want to be higher up on the capital structure but maybe things are so cheap, who knows? tom: i would say equity. equity is where the bang is going to be on the recovery. the opportunities on the debt side that are out there, there is an over discounting in my view. at least the possibility of oil testing 25 and maybe 20 briefly. buy debt that has been issued within the last year at $.30 on the dollar. if you can pick the right company to buy the debt of and , youoffer that at a markup can heal the company if you're a third party. the company cannot do it themselves. they burn the cash too fast. a third-party can make real
9:40 am
opportunities but it takes good judgment. jonathan: you said a number that screamed in my head. you said 20. we could test 20. wti down 3.7%. equities have opened up and we are down over 1% on the s&p 500. i want to know what this market looks like with crude at 20. tom: that is the concern. it becomes very clear to me that if we go to 20, it is not going to be lower for longer proposition. lower for much shorter. at that point, even the oil minister of saudi arabia may not change his tune but the country is likely to change actions without an announcement. they get all their objectives achieved at today's price. they may want, in order to persuade fellow members and opec, about the dire consequent is a not working with them, to test that.
9:41 am
but only long enough to make the point. david: do you think the saudi's as they look at it think that their strategy is working? to what extent is technology or increased efficiency made it more difficult? is getting cheaper at the same time the prices are going down. tom: that is a theme running to the press right now. is a case where there is truth to it. --ically that technology those technology advances work at 40, 50, and 60. they do not work at 30, 25, or 20. it is unlikely anything really works at that level for anybody producing oil today. jonathan: outside of the correlation i see this morning, how much is total production got to do with the fact that these companies have been funded by debt and have no choice but to keep pumping the stuff out of the ground? katie: i will defer to tom on the impact of that and i will come back and talk about the company. tom: basically, when you get to the point or think the world as one big tank, the next barrel
9:42 am
after it is totally full goes over the side transforms oil on the margin from being an asset to a liability. we are close to that condition. close to it but amazing innovations come along one way or another to deal with it and we are dealing with a seasonal period between right now and the first of may. the seasonal low in demand. it seasonally gets better. odds are we navigate that. katie: at the company level i would say when you have a low price for the commodity it gives management teams and opportunity to differentiate themselves read if you put consolidation on the table and you put the opportunity for improved operational efficiency i would agree with the point that there could be long-term from that upside from an equity perspective. stephanie: great conversation this morning. partnerse, petri chairman, and katie koch, goldman sachs.

it is positioned to uncoil at any time when you get better rates. stephanie: what did you ask jamie? mike: my question of the end is, why is it good to be a big bank? you hear the presidential candidates and see the public sentiment. you have the movie the big short up for an academy award this sunday. a public still dislikes the banks. stephanie: the answer? mike: his answer was because 787 is a safe airline. i thought he should have elaborated on that more and i thought he could've given a better answer. what he should have said, which he did say in the prior seven hours of the investor conference is that they have so much capital. $350 billion of capital to absorb losses, eight times the level of their actual energy loans. he mentioned consistency earlier . jpmorgan has some of the most consistent earnings of any of the megabanks in the last decade

9:52 am
because of their capital. they have technology, $9 billion with new chaseet pay which is coming out that the scale allows them to have this option now the others do not have. he did not pound the table as much as he did in the past. stephanie: it is not the right time to pound the table. if you're jamie dimon living in a scenario where you're in this you going to are stand up on your investor day and pound your chest with the markets looking like they are? you risk looking like a fool. mike: this is the environment jamie dimon in jpmorgan live for three of the gain share through the financial crisis. stephanie: hasn't he learned his lesson not to be rocky? we are not in that environment. david: i think it is an opportunity to stand up and say we are doing something good for the country. country is it better off place with us and it. stephanie: not necessarily the
