market islls you the way more sensitive to macro factors. the fed is really the only game in town? >> i do not expect it to really change. we have tried to tell the clients do not doubt the resolve of any central banks to do with they think they need to do to boost inflation and boost economic activity. since march of 2009, central banks have been played with a huge role in the rally we have seen with the s&p 500. i think central banks will continue to play a huge role. down the line, and you have been around long enough to , the central bank, the u.s. central bank always has a tough time extricating itself from an easy policy to a tight policy. it is always a bumpy road. extremely easy monetary policy now.

theou have written anything equity strategist group that i work with has written over the -- afour or five years huge factor on why we have been positive on stock spirit we will see higher confidence and it has stumbled a bit lately. over the course of the next three or four quarters, you will see that inch in the right direction. it will be a bumpy road. but i think we'll see higher confidence and that will help the stock market and consumer spending. things are somewhere between ok and good but not great. >> we have got a chart that bearsyou a lot of disagree with what you just said about consumer confidence. really coming up against consumer discretionary stocks, you can see from the chart it has gone up 50% in the last three years or i want to focus on the last portion where you
see that spike that began in the latter half of last year. confident that as a consumer, it will come back. a lot are against that. >> consumer discretionary sector has performed very well since the march of 2009 lows. when i see the chart, it makes me feel better that we are overweight from the consumer discretionary. there are people betting against it and there have been people betting against the consumer for quite a long time. they have been wrong. i think they will continue to be. great to see you. thank you so much. much more ahead on bloomberg markets. candidates finance minister outlined his plan to jumpstart the economic jump -- juggernaut. a bloomberg exclusive. do not miss it next. ♪

and that is what we are setting up to do. >> we are talking about canada. canada taught the english-speaking world how to be responsible and run balanced budgets. rewarded canada by restoring the triple-a credit rating. what if they do not agree? >> i think they're going to a great. what we said we wanted do, we are blessed in canada with a particularly good situation. ourave been able to lower gdp. the lowest net debt to gdp, which gives us the most capacity to make investments to grow the economy. importantly, the imf, the oecd, and g-20 countries, they are recognizing in an era of low growth and demographic change, is usinghould be doing

inequality problem? >> from our point of view, we look back over the last generation and realize middle-class generations have not been as successful. we believe finding ways to enhance the family will not only help them but will also help the economy. someone who is a middle income canadian getting on average and0 more on child benefits the way we have done this, they will put that back into the economy. good for the economy. over time, that will help the growth. we think it is about helping people and helping the next generation by having a productive economy. >> philosophically, do you agree about the point about inequality? >> we agree that having a
country that enables all people to be successful is important. if we have a country where middle-class is not able to grow their incomes, that is not ok because we are able to grow the economy and make sure it is inclusive growth and that is what we are working towards. >> a conspicuous absence in the budget -- why? is taken ahave done withat how we could deal the country broadly. in the case of the aerospace sector, it is a critically important industry. very successful. a very successful company in that. to anyone out there considering buying it, it is a great jet. putting forward on the government come on along with them, we have not finished the

moving ahead steadily. we have seen the latest gdp numbers on a macro level. we are seeing it on car sales and household formation and housing activity and employment. charley: it used to be that what business needed is confidence because they had plenty of money to spend. do you see that confidence on the part of business being willing to increase their engage in the expansion of facilities and that kind of thing? >> we're sitting here at the end of the first quarter of the year. a lot of nervousness in the markets. i think you look at the geopolitical situation, the week global demand. there are a lot of things we can worry about. you look at the u.s. economy. we have shown we have reached a level of strength that is quite
real and sustainable. he economy is 85% to mexican most is consumer driven. a strongnue to have u.s. economy. that is why i am focusing on the global situation. having a stronger global economy now is where the confidence needs to come from. charley: what do you see having inflation over this year and the next? jack: inflation depending on which measure you look at, getting closer to the 2% target people have been looking at, it is not showing any signs of exploding. i think it is a good thing. one of the problems we have in the country is the disparity of incomes and the way to solve that is for there to be some increase in wages in lower levels.
charley: you mean raise the minimum wage. jack: i think that is something we should do for the -- as a government. we have been supportive of the proposals. charley: not $15 as some cities have an post. jack: we are supportive of efforts to increase them and wait for it are supportive of actions being taken at the state local level. remainted states will one of the most powerful drivers of the economy. i have said over and over again over the last three years, the world cannot count on the united states to be a sole driver of the global economy. populations around the world, developing economies growing because of their place in the development cycle, we want to be a part of that. we want to be selling goods and services there. we want them to be abiding by the standards we think makes the
world a better place. that has the advantage of making the world more competitive. charley: one thing you constantly heard is the idea of china growth and economic growth and a five year plan, that it is not a zero sum game for the united states, that the eurozone should be invested in china's growth as an economic powerhouse. >> we have said that publicly and privately. statesn the united interest for china to do well. leads thef britain european union, what impact with that have on the chinese economy question mark jack: i do not think it would be good for the global economy. impact is partially economic of tradeof the slow and economic relationships. it is partially geopolitical and strategic in terms of holding on to unity. in a world where one of the things that drives the economy is the uncertainty of geopolitical risk, it was
interesting at the g-20 meeting, the risk of grexit was something people were talking about in a different way. is that something you can measure with an economic index, no. but is it clear that when you increase the level of unease it has an economic consequence, yes. i have seen all kinds of estimates on what it means for the european economy, europe has a hard time struggling to get to a sustainable growth anywhere near strong enough. unemployment, anything that would move that in the wrong direction would be bad for the economy and geopolitically destabilizing. breaking news on metlife. it looks like they have won their day in court, not being hyman has-- julie more on this. news foris is big
metlife. it has been fighting this since 2015, saying the government designation of it is as systemically important and significant was arbitrary and has indeed prevailed. the federal judge in washington a striking down the designation of metlife as to be to fail. it rejects the financial stability oversight council, and hasobama administration designated four financial institutions under the non-bank financial institutions under the designation. we will see what happens with the others. argued it should not be as such. is it is a financial crisis, they should see a company like metlife systemically important just as they sought tig systemically important during the last financial crisis. the court rejecting the argument. you can see the shares are surging by 6% in reaction to the
the goldman banker i mentioned is now a former goldman banker. tim is under investigation by the u.s. for his role in the malaysia scandal. we are joined now live on the show. thank you. the scandal? catch us up if you will. it is an amazing scan appeared i think i have to correct and say it -- i do not believe he is under investigation. i think investigators have talked to him but they made it clear he is not a target. that being said, what has happened, it is amazing, if viewers are watching this, the -- imagine if president obama had 50 many dollars in his bank account and was in charge of a pseudo-sovereign wealth fund in the u.s. and that seems to have missing money, and on top of that, if the fund had worked with goldman sachs and goldman
got some good like $500 million for their dealings with it, that is what we are talking about and that is what happened in malaysia right now. caroline: phenomenal. talk about the political repercussions and where this goes. how much is goldman sachs embroiled in this now? are they stepping away from the employee? >> sure. is the primeing minister of malaysia, this has been a funny thing. a premise or is disputing with him over the case. what it comes down to is this issued billion dollars of debt with goldman sachs, and the idea was they would help fund local projects. they would build a huge financial district. that has not gotten off the ground. at first, people were upset goldman sachs had made so much money off of the bond yields. but that has been overshadowed
by a sense of, has money been taken, where is it. swiss investigators believe $4 billion is missing and it is worth pointing out what it says everything is above board, and the prime minister has said the $600 million was a gift from friends in the saudi royalty -- royal family. caroline: tell us about the , the malaysia's head to washington. will that be affected in any way? >> i think obama and achieve are said to be good bodies. who knows what it means for the relationship between malaysia and the united states. in the meantime, tim is an interesting figure to watch as well. this man was a serious goldman sachs star. thething we write about piece is that goldman sachs has a wonderful capacity and a lucrative capacity to mix money and power in the united states.
worldwide, it can be very lucrative but very fraught and complicated. lesser was very good at making connections throughout southeast asia where he was the chairman for goldman sachs. withan sachs connections power, it can lead to a lot of complications, as we read about. wait to readannot that in full. thank you very much for the phenomenal story. tesla is about to unveil one of its most important cars. how much is riding on the cheaper model three. ♪
project that has been a decade in the making. context is through what we now know of tesla's latest electric car. >> tesla is about to unveil its most important car, the model three. this is the big one, which will take electric cars mainstream. here's what we know so far. toexpect something similar the $70,000 model s but with fewer bells and whistles. 20% smaller than the model s. there is no word yet on whether it will have the more tightlipped mouth. model three will start at --,000 before government that is ace -- an extremely competitive price for the they will bearket competing at. tesla is promising to under miles per charge, but it might be more for people willing to
pay extra for a larger battery. tesla is designing a data re-architecture to make it cheaper. next 10k pro-dex in the years, all new cars will be able to drive themselves. therefore, you could expect the model three would probably come at least some autonomous driving, even if buyers have to pay extra to activate them. your hands on model three, you have to get online. the first deliveries will not come until the end of next year. betty: nobody has gotten to see the model. are we going to see the car we will buy or is it just a prototype? produce thehen they
final version, that is not what elon musk has done in the past. this will be close to what we will get. it will be a functional ride on it. it will be pretty close. betty: give us the sense of dates. will we hit the end of toys 17? >> that is a good question. i cannot think of a deadline he has met before. from all been saying of the executives, how this time it would be different. focusing on the model s, having people buying $100,000. early adopters, people can afford to ride -- with a delay. a much different market. they might not be willing to be as patient if there are problems with the initial rollout or long
delays. thes difficult to overstate level of interest in the car right now. when the history of the automobile has people lining up to put $1000 down on a car they have never seen before that will not be available for another 17 years -- >> who is the buyer? the buyers were like larry page, , techy people.ch for a $35,000 car, who will be buying it? >> the model three gets compared comingo the chevy volt out, another electric vehicle with a similar range. that is not the audience elon musk is shooting for. he is shooting to compete with the four, still high-end, but kind of entry luxury car. a much bigger audience. if they could get the vehicle out in time to qualify for government incentive, you could
talk about a car well into 35 -- $30,000. to own a tesla, it could be a very attractive offer. it is kind of a status symbol. thank you. thank you, tom randall. about yourrn more destination for the finer things in life. just head on the bloomberg. coming up, it is all about the european close. 600,e higher on the stoxx minus five percentage points higher. ♪
