this. this is really important in a dynamic. that is what the bond strategists are looking at. the bet is on a rising 10 year and a lowering two-year. was that confusing enough? francine: that was fine. cannot talkme as we in the morning but we are on the same page. tom: it is cosmic. francine: it is telepathy. i looked flat -- i looked at a benchmark. what this means is they are already the world's most expensive bonds. this is the japanese jgb. they seem to suggest that locals actually want more, so u.s. yield premiums over japan which is the white line is widening. the bond action result is the blue line. tom: what it is critical is that
5:06 am
it is not normalized. very powerful. francine: it really goes to show what boj's troubles, or the impact of negative rates. let's welcome alexander friedman joining us as a guest host. i am very excited to have you on. this was meant to be the year of diverging monetary policy and there are so many more risks because policy has not really botched because of the risks they see out there, be at politics, china, brexit. how do you the markets right now, more volatility to come? alexander: i think we are in a sideways volatile. -- a sideways volatile period. it is basically resting on the equivalent of a three-legged stool and the three legs are monetary policy, fiscal policy, and economics or growth.
5:07 am
the monetary policy leg has been bolstered as we have seen through every tool imaginable. we have run out of tools. a be helicopter money but probably not. fiscal, that we are seeing a big .uestion mark on a lot of dysfunctional politics so people look back to monetary policy but there are not many tools left. what are we left with? a shaky leg of economics. becomee: the wobble can a recessionary environment or not? or is it just going to be kind of sluggish, low growth? alexander: i would choose the latter for now. i have heard a lot of commentators say every seven to eight years there is a recession . that is a simplistic way to put it. 1994, it fitsbout into these time frames but you
5:08 am
have to ask yourself what causes recessions, and i would say we are more in a sideways model that a recession but the political story could derail things. let's say you and i go out to dinner and i say i will give you a ride home afterwards but there's a 20% chance the cars going to crash and leave you badly hurt. would you take the ride? francine: probably not. alex, you have such an esteemed record linking our political into investments. is this a point where we just shut down until the election? i usually do not link politics and elections but what we witnessed in america the last week is extraordinary. speaker ryan meeting with mr. trump today. is it a point with brexit were the system just shuts down until
5:09 am
we get through november? alexander: that is the $64,000 question. let's start with how monetary policy looks at it. monetary policy is not shut down that is reactive to the fiscal or political side, and that is quite worrisome. you see it with carney's comments in england. he says until i know the outcome of the referendum, monetary policy has to remain accommodative. does that question whether central banks are independent? i think it does. in the united states i think it is a bigger issue. the u.s. central bank is reactive toward what is happening in brazil and china. tom: i have been dying to ask this question all morning. mr. friedman, is this a dead meeting for the bank of england? is it a dead meeting and not a live meeting? alexander: what is a dead
5:10 am
meeting? tom: i do not know. i do not know what a live meeting is. come on, francine. what, they are going to hike or cut rates six weeks before the referendum? no, they are not. most important thing i've heard today is whether it is unanimous or whether one of the voters actually decides to vote on cutting rates, because that gives a political message to brexit in six weeks. i think we have to take a step back and remind ourselves whether it is cutting rates or raising rates, how much are we talking about? the tiniest amount. am, you have seen this for long time. it used to be raise rates 100 basis points are more hear it now we are looking at a quarter of a point.

francine: thank you. let's get back to our guest host for the hour. it is alex friedman. i picked up something that he wrote earlier. it was well written and engaging. i picked it out as our morning must-read. aresaid in this world there only two tragedies. you are quoting oscar wilde. he said one is not getting what one wants, the other is getting it. you said the fed is not only looking at domestic demands, but they have become the central banker to the world. is that a mistake? alex: the fed has a dual mandate . one is full employment, the other is price stability or an inflation target. the fed has met both of those mandates. we have 5% unemployment in the united states and core cpi in the right target zone.
5:32 am
essentially, they should raise rates, but they are not. you have to be careful what you ask war, or as oscar wilde said, that you might get what you want. the factd not stomach that they could be on a 4 rate cycle. the fed has to look at the rest of the world. the question, is this an independent domestic body or not? or do they have a different mandate, i would argue they do. francine: the brazilian senate debate of the more than 21 hours has started here they're voting on whether to impeach president rousseff or not. it is ongoing. we will see a vote in the next couple of minutes. if you look at brazil, i know it is contained and a political risk, at the end of the day it is about economic this management.
5:33 am
.- economic mismanagement if the market is pricing a possible fed interest rate hike in june, what does it mean for the emerging market? alex: they have benefited from the dollar weakness. down 6.8%. that is because stories have been better, china etc.. if we go to brazil, there are two dimensions. the expectations that there will be an impeachment and the vice president will become president and the former head of the central bank will be the financial minister and we will see a trajectory for reform. if that does not happen, there is significant risk for the markets. we will find out today. tom: part of it is the diversions whether it is commodities in brazil or the transatlantic diversions between a bank of england today and the fed on june 15. no one looks at this better than michael mckee.
5:34 am
was all the rage three months ago? from oscar went wilde to albert einstein in the idea of holding 2 opposing views. at what is happening in the economy of the united states and great britain, you can see the economic surprise index from citigroup shows both are showing disappointing economic data. we are talking about the federal reserve raising interest rates and the possibility of the bank of england cutting interest rates. it is no wonder investors are having a tough time figuring out what to do. thiswe will go to momentous announcement from brazil. janet yellen has to worry about brazil at the end of the day? just worry about everywhere, -- francine: sorry to a draft. we have the final vote. 55 are in favor of impeaching

president rousseff. she will not be going back to her office today. there has been a majority of brazilian senators saying they are backing impeachment. that vote has been placed. they needed a simple majority of 41. we have 55 senators saying they voted for the rousseff impeachment. this paves the way or vice president mr. temer to take power. we know that they have to bring toetter to madame rousseff inform her, and she will give a fact later. how do you manage to brazilian had he managed the brazilian economy? you need economic reforms. that is what the market is believing, that the next person botch it more than president rousseff.
5:36 am
alex: the issue is that brazil has a deep economic recession and you cannot turn the dial quickly. it is around 17 that the central bank will have room to cut rates given that we should see an improving overall story. the most important step has been taken. withinat is interesting roselle and something we have studied, brendan greeley is very good on this and john freire, is that this vice president is more of the same. it is president rousseff and and acting president within the scandals -- the acting president is from the same cloth? alex: that is a good point. some of his colleagues are under investigation. the key individual, as i understand, has no questions or clouds around him is the former central bank governor who is expected to be the finance minister. tom: you have been a student of
5:37 am
this for many months. it is no prize that this announcement of mrs. rousseff pushed aside. i saw on twitter brazilian athletes saying do not come to rio for the olympics. michael: an article was published suggesting the olympics be canceled in brazil. getting rid of dilma rousseff or not get rid of the problems, has the country economic difficulties ahead. with the senate and legislature, and a new president who is also tainted, it will be hard to get them out of this. tom: what is important is how people were out runs on this linkage of politics and economics. i would give the highest marks to mohamed el-erian at pimco. he was out front on brazil being a unique mess. is important now

what we think when we look at the polls, the majority of brazilians were backing the impeachment of rousseff not only because she was lenient on corruption but because she mismanaged the economy. what kind of person do you need to lead brazil? reforms, confidence, jobs? robert: they need all of those. they need a lot of her forms. they need to get their dependence on energy lower than it is today. they need diversification, more openness to foreign investments, they need a lot of internal structural reforms. the correction factor undermines confidence, undermines it severely. petrobras,-- traditionally, has been well run. engaged in the politics. pulling petrobras out and enabling it to work as a company
6:08 am
on market principles would be a step in the right direction. francine: is the vice president the person for the job. he is a career politician from the same party and a constitutional lawyer. this is about unifying and rallying the troops. robert: that will be the challenge. he was a teacher, a lawyer, he is from sao paulo. is from an important city and played an important role in the city. can he pull the country together? there are a lot of factions. if he can do that, and he is a temporary figure. we will see if he stays or if there is pressure to really clean house and put people in. that will be the challenge. tom: i assume you have thrown a piece of chalk at the fletcher school who wide-eyed freshman who want a perfect

6:10 am
shift a nation to a better role of morality? robert: in countries in western europe, there is a rule of morality now. japan, when they had scandals people take responsibility. they are forced out of office. japan has a very moral system in the way that they run the country. they take responsibility. part of the problem is that if you make a mistake you do not bear the responsibility. therefore you get away with it and someone who works for you or in another office decide they can get away with it, too. you have to have a strict set of attorneys general and prosecutors. had a lot of they scandals there were bold italians who stepped forward to deal with the issues. tom: we got through the first 10 minutes without talking about trump or clinton. we will shatter that record.

megan: he is in a tough position. you only have to look at the margins in places like west wasinia, where trump won 77% of the nominee. this is a popular nominee that has a broad coalition of support. establishmentthe need to get behind him and figure out what they are comfortable with, or this could be a disaster in 2016 with the senate as well as the house. francine: paul ryan is looking for loyalty? he wants donald trump to say that he is loyal to conservative party principles. what are the chances of trump leaning toward that? megan: very low. trump has compared this issue to i have won the pennant i'm going into the world series, why would i change my strategy? the rhetoric he has used has got him this far. he has shown little application

you with bob hormats of kissinger associates, adam sieminski. he is the administrator of the -- energyinistration information administration. adam sieminski, the eighth administrator of the eia. you have been on the watch for a couple of years. what is a distinctive feature of global supply now? the distinctive feature in global supply is how renewables next 20 tog over the 25 years. particularly in the generation of electricity. other key factor is that overall energy consumption looks like it will rise at 1.4% per year, a little faster than population growth.
6:34 am
what is really driving that is industrialization across the developing world. tom: within that industrialization, i remember speaking about the shock and awe a something the russians did which was not within the deutsche bank spread sheet. what is the shock you are most focused on? adam: the biggest sources of uncertainty, i think, run around the economic outlook. lots ofve been problems, not only in the united states. five years or six years ago -- europe and now recently china, when you look at in economyal growth and energy use in asia that is a big factor. another one is technology. technology keeps changing. it is very hard for any model,
6:35 am
and anyone doing the modeling, to get a firm grip on that. we have to look at different scenarios. francine: you talk about renewables. it seems that american consumers are going back to buying large suvs or pickup trucks. what is the implication? are you worried about a setback in the fuel economy? adam: the fuel economy is on a long-term trend. it looks like with the existing law and regulation, it will be on a downtrend. in the near term, last year and this year, a lot of things are helping. unemployment is down, gasoline is less expensive than it was two years ago, and as a consequence people are buying more cars. they are driving more miles. that has an impact in the short run. if you look out over 10 years, i think we will see a continuing improvement in auto fuel
6:36 am
efficiency, probably also in diesel trucks. talking about shocks, do you expect changes in the oil policy with the arrival of the new oil minister? adam: i think the saudis have been good in making transitions in senior leadership and within the oil area as well. have beenthe saudis emphasizing they do not want to give up market share to other major opec producers. you can think about iran and iraq. that is leading in the short run to more oil production coming from opec. tom: that is where i wanted to go with you and ambassador horm ats.this is oil inflation adjusted for the rising wealth. it is an approximation of oil. know 1986 right here. for saudi arabia now, what is the difference between now and
6:37 am
1986? adam: i think that if you look at where the saudis are, their economy is broadening. oil is still very critically important. these low risers are probably not going to last forever. prices arethese low probably not going to last forever. we have been a lot of cycles. prices are down now, but i expect him to go back up again. tom: economic politics with opec in saudi arabia -- is opec dead? robert: it is not dead, but it is weaker. that is largely because there is a a lot of additional and unanticipated production in north america that was not anticipated several years ago. there is a greater degree of
6:38 am
efficiency and use of energy in north america and elsewhere. , there will be a lot of renewable production and greater efficiency, which seakens be a bit -- which weakens the ability of opec to function. pumping a lot, but if they push back it will decrease the supply somewhat, but the other suppliers would begin to produce further. francine: saudi is pumping a lot. byn's production took some surprise. when will the oil market find balance? when will it come back to that? in our short-term energy to look at how the markets are rebalancing. we are seeing that occur now. inventories on a global basis of oil are building, but that will
6:39 am
slow down dramatically over the next six months. as we go into next year, inventories should the declining. that would be a pretty firm indicator that the markets have rebalanced. francine: were you surprised by how fast iranian oil production came back online? we are back to pre-2012 sanction levels. adam: we did work on how quickly iran could come back. it is a combination of production that went off line the sanctions and stored oil that is being sold on to the global markets, floating inventories. that combination i do not think has been a huge surprise. the next big question will be, now that that has been done, what kind of foreign investment maintainattract to this level of production or grow it more?
6:40 am
tom: that is the heart of your public service the administration, trying to cajole free market investment in some of these job of fees. are we doing better? put hisi think adam finger on it. in iran, will for an investors come back? a lot of european oil companies want to come back to iran or have not left. they want to come back and bigger. they have to negotiate positions in a government which, in some cases, is in favor of foreign investments -- but some factions are not. then you have the presumptive african production off the coast -- go: u.s. companies, do they back to opec? robert: they do not go in at all. they are still primary sanctions on american companies going into iran. european and asian ones can go in.
6:41 am
there are certain exceptions for doing business with iran for aviation companies like boeing and if you are sending humanitarian goods. most companies are still prohibited from investing in iran. american banks are prohibited from engaging in transactions with iran. they cannot get financing for foreign oil. thecine: when we look at oil market, sometimes we take a short-term view, but the problem is that it is clear there has been a drop in upstream investment globally. do you think that this will fuel the next crisis, which will be a spike up in the next couple of years? adam: whether it will be a ofsis and how big the spike will be is a long debate. the drop in capital spending is likely to continue for a little longer into this year. i think it will indeed slow down
6:42 am
oil production in two years or three years. that will be a factor that the market. i think it is very attractive to put money into the permian basin in texas, north dakota, utica, pennsylvania, ohio. that will be hard to beat. the resiliency of u.s. be a factor that will moderate that spike we are talking about. robert: that is a good point. the u.s. is an attractive place to invest. a lot of places have energy, but it is riskier. there are political risks. the u.s. will be an important factor. francine: what a great conversation. .hank you

it was in the constitution. in the 14th amendment, it says the federal debt repayment should not be questioned. it is in the constitution. tom: esther trump is questioning it? robert: this is what people miss. he talks about the chinese. the chinese hold one $.2 trillion of american debt. the biggest is 1.6 trillion dollars. if the value of the federal debt is degraded and you pay back at a discount, that takes a huge chunk out of the social security systemor retirees. $800 billion of federal debt treasuries is held by the military retirement funds. tom: up to $3 trillion. robert: if you pay the debt back at a lower discounted value, buying it back, the social security system has less money
6:48 am
and the military retirement has less money. let's focus not so much on china, though they are important, but on our own people. tom: you are quite close to secretary clinton -- what should the gop establishment do today and in november with mr. trump? robert: i hesitate to give the republicans advice, but on the subject of this, the integrity of the federal data is important. if they have a plan for reducing time,deral debt over which will be difficult, or reducing deficits over time, which has been the case -- deficits have gone down considerably. there is little recognition being given to that, but deficits are considerably lower. they should have some fiscal plan, and not some notion that you can borrow and repay the debt at a lower level.
