>> she has to minimize the hurt feelings, to the extent that she can be gracious and let the numbers speak for themselves. arehe other level, there contests in a number of hours the ability to ratchet up the pledged delegate count. themay not get across threshold with pure pledged delegates. canhe is able to win, she go into the general election with a stronger -- to vote todayhave . number andas this senator sanders contest this to july, she will still have this number and will still be the
nominee. certainly, there are hundreds of delegates and played today and these are proportionally awarded and it is not a winner take all situation. to the extent that she is able to win over states, it onengthens the claim unifying the party going forward . >> thank you for the latest on hillary clinton. we are bringing our chief backmist from jeffries into this conversation. it looks like clinton and trump in the united states. fromdoes the economic hold

do they talk about the ?ransmissions they could create they are not talking about the size of the economy. social actionss systemic issues developing more widely and this is a major trading block. anything that throws that off, the world's trade is weak and it pushes the ecb to do more and for the bank of england to cut rates for the fed. reduce the pound ?terling is this a risk?

25 billion dollars to $30 billion. the headline you will be most focused on disposals, debt cuts and dividends. the dividend is unchanged. is that in sync with what you were thinking? >> i think that shell has delivered where it was prepared to deliver today. capital expenditure they see coming in a toy $9 billion in whenand the ceo of shell he reported on earnings in may said that he sees capital expenditure trending toward $30 billion. also on synergies for the deal, the company previously said they three about -- they see about $3.5 billion worth of synergy. they are now saying that they see that rising to 4.5 to -- $4.5 billion in cost savings.
they're slightly better than expected perhaps or better than a previously stated capex forecast. synergieso the forecast as a result of the deal. as investors will also want to know, how is this company going to make money when they have long said they needed $60 per barrel oil price for the steel to make sense. manus: -- anna: ryan will be interviewing the ceo of shell coming up at 7:45 u.k. time. great to have you on the program. let's get your thoughts on this sector. the energy sector, the oil sector. they are talking about their commitment to run disposals. this was a highly watched
capital markets day because it is a big acquisition. how do you view this sector? >> we are ultimately positive. it is a sector that has come under a tremendous amount of and ultimately they reacted in a very positive way by cutting quite substantially. we ultimately see the sector having tremendous upside going forward because valuation is at a discount versus the market. how are you preparing for the summer? we have a number of peak risks coming, how do i trade the summer? >> we ultimately see the summer as a hot summer. you can even cheapen the premium by adding a contingency on the euro-dollar going lower.
u.k.essage here is the referendum and the spanish the omt on june 26 and decision by the german court are drivers of volatility. anna: janet yellen being vague on the timing, or not committing -- has that taken the summer off your risk list? the rate hike is something that we expect to occur. not in the summer, but more toward december. anna: not september either? >> right. we ultimately see a high probability of a rate hike in september rather than december. the argument is that the unemployment is likely to go below. the path of least resistance is
for higher rates going forward. manus: timing all that together, we have the dollar under pressure. the dollar rally battered. gold is on a run higher again. commodities are back in a gold market. do i buy the upside in these commodities? give it to us in terms of the dollar and commodity. >> the ultimate path of least resistance is going to see commodity under pressure. we seen the rates going higher forward simply because of the momentum in the economy. alisa the nonfarm payroll -- obviously the nonfarm payroll has been a bit lackluster. >> what makes you so convinced that the inflation pressures are going to become sufficient so the fed is going to be able to push the hike button?
the other concerns globally are outweighing the outward pressure and even some of the voices -- how pressure is really sustainable. >> we've undergone a tremendous amount of work with respect to the cycle and ultimately we're down to the phillips curve. we're -- the numbers it could be a pretty smooth path going forward. they have started to move to be in thisosed deflationary spiral that people have feared at the beginning of this year. chart for youa here in china. everything that happens here reverberates from china to the rest of the fed. had lastear what we
year. you have some concerns about china and the nonperforming loan market and you have a way to trade it. >> our chinese economists have done a very detailed report showing that the total amount of to beforming loans are expected over the next few years that could amount to 8 trillion yuan. trillion.ughly $1 about 60% of the commercial bank's capital. roughly 50% of the fiscal revenue. there is a huge amount of work to be done by the chinese government and banks to restructure their portfolio and loans. the way to play it is, ultimately buying options on the index which is bank heavy. you can finance that with the s&p for example or simply the spreads on the dollar cnh.
recently it has been out a decent amount of stability but we ultimately see the weakening being inevitable. anna: at the looking at the comments from prime minister abe. in the early hours he was saying, we need to switch up gears on abenomics to escape deflation. you done some work on how strong theyen has to get against dollar to prompt another wave of action from policymakers. what is your policy like? >> in terms of the currency, we we see that- probability increasing if we go below 100. the boj is expanding its monetary base by ¥80 trillion per year and this is a huge amount of monetary easing.
cannot that the r.b.i. rule out brexit as a source of volatility. there could be possible turmoil in market on any future. he also said earlier on that he could not say any more on continuing as governor. that is a question of whether he would be after september. bit of an update on what we heard from the r.b.i. this morning. >> samsung is continue it -- considering introducing new smart phone featuring bendable screens, including a version that folds in half. the devices which would use organic light emitting diodes could be unveiled as early as next year and that is likely to give the company a head start.
general motors is bullish on china. said despite jitters around the second largest economy, she sees huge potential. she spoke exclusively to david west. china is more volatile than it has been, we still see tremendous growth between now and 2020. we have over 60 new models between now and then and in a typical emerging-market it will be a bit more volatile but there will be tremendous growth opportunity there. >> pine river capital management is closing its $1.6 billion fixed income hedge fund. the manager said he was stepping away from managing money. they announced the fund would be liquidated and cash would be returned to the clients. beenlayboy mansion has
bought for more than $100 million. the buyer is the 32 euros and of the billionaire who ons the property next door. he has agreed to let hugh hefner continue to live at the mansion. that is your bloomberg business flash. anna: he seems like a very understanding landlord. the u.k. business secretary has warned that leaving the european union could cost british businesses 34.4 billion pounds in nontariff barriers to trade. the claim was made in a letter cosigned with the former business secretary peter mandelson. meanwhile they have dismissed the statements and accused him of using random numbers to back david cameron's campaign to remain in the block. another voice, delhi -- danny alexander. thank you so much. i know you're speaking to us in your former capacity chief
secretary. i want to take you back to that time at the treasury. he said it was his time at the treasury that convinced him that the u.k. would be better off being outside the eu than in it. why do you come out with a different conclusion? >> i had a very particular experience with the erm. treasury convince me -- though it is something i believe for a long time before i went to the treasury that from the perspective of britain's national economic interests, working with our partners closely is something that helps create jobs and bring inward investment into the u.k. and makes it the open and trading nation that we are. was just hearing you talk about what was said earlier today.
i haven't seen the report but the basic notion that being in the eu reduces barriers to trade and reduces nontariff barriers because we have common regulations. doesn't put up barriers outside the eu because those who want to leave say, we could leave but it would cost us more money to sell into the rest of the eu, but we would be free to trade with the outside world. >> it does not create barriers to trade at all. when you talk to people in other parts of the world, they see britain's place in the eu. it's something which is attractive about living in the united kingdom. manus: in terms of what we look at over the next three weeks, it is all to play for and it comes
down to sovereignty and immigration in terms of two of the most banner headlines. it is a campaign driven by fear and therefore, there's going to be a backlash and that's possibly what's coming through in the polls. your site has utterly patronized the british people. >> i've seen the polls and a have not been part of the debate for the past few months. important -- very if it's a benefit in europe which is what we were just talking about but also the risk of leaving. you're right that the opinion polls look tight. viewersere and your
ought to brace themselves for the fact that perhaps what they have considered unthinkable looks like a significant possibility. i still think in the end that most people in the u.k. will say that being part of the eu is something that has brought a lot of benefits to us over the years and if you like looking forward, countries working together is the right way to try to solve international problems. just because we say stop the world because i want to get off, it does not mean the world the stop. >> if we do see a vote to leave the european union on june 23, will all the things that come from that be clear? for example there was a conversation yesterday about whether a vote for brexit means voting to leave the single market. the supra mode to leave say that it does but they will not be in a position to do the negotiating after a vote for brexit. how much should the house of
commons -- they have to be bound by the will of the people, but there will be a lot of details to be ironed out. >> those choices are not in our hands. when the striking things i think about the debate so far. the cannot specify in any detail what they specify it will be like. some of them say we should be in the single market. they say we should be away from it all and we should negotiate bilaterally with other countries. between three and 10 years depending a different estimates. that's what the government was referring to earlier, not just the u.k. and europe but the whole world economy.
