5:01 am
francine: 50/50. the debate yesterday -- it felt quite personal. tom: it got personal again quickly. there seems to be real momentum for both sides to reestablish what their key distinctions are. francine: this is what we will be covering for the day, the week, and possibly the month -- depending on the outcome. there are just three more days before the u.k. votes on whether to leave the european union. prime minister david cameron is accusing his opponents of trying to deceive people in voting to leave. it is the first day of campaigning since labor leader was murdered.coxe in italy, a setback for prime minister matteo renzi in local elections. the candidate of the

5:04 am
this is my data board. usually show things happening when people are nervous. we are not seeing that happening. the pound strengthening on the back of the most recent poll. director mike amy now joins us as we talk about brexit, remain as we count down to the eu referendum. , great to have you on the program. as always. let me bring you over to the terminal. this is pound volatility. this is the recession back in 2008. this is what we saw before the scottish referendum. this is still different. is it going to get worse in the run-up to thursday? mike: i suspect it will probably
5:05 am
calm down a bit, if i'm honest. the volatility in the polls has been huge over the past couple weeks. my suspicion is that as you move especiallyevent -- given the moves today -- that we might get a couple of days of relative calm and then we will see how things pan out on thursday. francine: there are so many that are undecided and they seem to flip-flop. people don't really know their mind yet. mike: we have always assigned a 40% chance of brexit because of the uncertainty over the polling -- we don't have any back testing for the polling -- there is a chance there -- and then there is the immigration debate, which is where the out campaign focused their discussion. tom:. i'm fascinated "the times" of london want to remain and then
5:06 am
four pages in "the times" this onning is an exposé passports to get into the united kingdom. each paper seems split within the newspaper, as well. mike: yes, there is a bit of schizophrenia, i think. papers havef the come out clearly on what they want to do. " is out. " the times" is more mainstream. tom: can i ask a dumb question? can i ask an american question? to the papers influence people? mike: that is an interesting question. sun" wants to be on the winning side of things, the winning side of history. mike: that's right. has generally been on the right side of votes.
5:07 am
one ins a fairly famous a general election. my suspicion is that them coming out will not influence things that much. tom: we saw cash levels at record levels. is that a market choice? or uncertainty? mike: i think it is. i think a lot of people have taken chips off the table. there are one or two markets where there are bets in. cable is one and one or two of the rates markets. a lot of the money is on the sideline. it is a binary event. binary events are tough. francine: how difficult is it to understand what people will vote on? mike: really, when it comes down to it, what people are voting on is whether the loss of sovereignty by being in the eu is sufficiently large that you
5:08 am
want to change your arrangements. that is why on the remain the cost ofu get the exit being high. that is why the brexit campaign focuses all about the risks not being that big if we move out. that is one of the reasons why the voting public has not really engaged that much. they hear the argument. tom: help me with the distinction among economists. a set of economists today very much stay within the eu. a number of weeks ago, a guest said the economic impact would not be that great. gerard lyons writing in "the telegraph" saying it is always overrated. where are economists? mike: i think the central
5:09 am
tendency is that the u.k. would be better off in rather than out. you get the short-term hit to gdp. you would put growth down to zero or slightly above. then there is the persistent uncertainty on whether you can get a decent trading arrangement on the way out. francine: the problem is that you have a lot of economists saying it would be better to remain. i spoke to the former deputy governor of the bank of england saying there is backlash. people say that you are not the people who have to suffer if we remain in the eu. tom: i find it fascinating. there is no equivalency i know within the united states to this moment. people are totally focused on this. francine: all right, we will have plenty more discussion with mike amey from pimco coming up in the next hour.

5:14 am
for joining us from mumbai. we understand why he is stepping down. is there a concern that the central bank is not as independent as he wanted it to be? definitely, that is one of the concerns. he has been pretty outspoken. in monetary policy and beyond that, calling on the administration to maintain fiscal discipline. he was the first governor who got the government to agree on .n inflation setting target unfortunately, his departure has created some concern about how the rupee will react. tom: good morning. is the central bank of india -- are the independent from the narendra modi government? not really.
5:15 am
the appointment of the governor itself, the power lies with the government. it had to say that they are completely independent of the government -- hard to say they are completely independent of the government influence. francine: thank you so much. i don't know what to do with this -- it is central bank independence -- he was forward thinking, international, he gave reassurance to the markets. mike: yes, we will clearly have to wait and see who will get the job when he steps down. i think we will find out in august. one would hope that the next appointee -- obviously, there are various names in the mix. if you get one of the current deputies or something like that, then at least you have got some continuity. tom: right. mike: what you don't want to see
5:16 am
is a step change. if you move to somebody who has been to a strong character, internationally respected, our view is that there are very capable people in the reserve bank of india. tom: bring up the chart of the rupee. what i find fascinating is that we have the nigerian float. we will show that chart in the 6:00 hour. even this is currency depreciation as policy. i'm not critical of it. that is economics of dollar-rupee. are we beginning to see an unraveling of emergency market stability as indicated by currency stability? mike: it is much harder when the u.s. is raising interest rates. that is classically the environment in which countries have the toughest time. they have been raising fx reserves, let the currency go
5:17 am
down a little bit. at least they have got some flexibility. i would say, in general, you look at emerging markets and they have a decent bounce back again. tom: the idea of emerging markets is distinctive from developed markets. where does that stand? are they two separate worlds? into everybody converging having janet yellen be their central banker? mike: there is janet yellen being the central banker. then you have india as a classic example of the beneficiaries of weaker growth profiles. i think what you end up with is this underlying yellen factor. then you split the emerging markets into those on the good side of weaker commodity prices and those who are challenged. you see that day today in saudi
5:18 am
versus india, for example. francine: among the emerging markets -- india's oil consumption is gaining. there are shooting stars out there. mike: i think it is relatively clear that the biggest challenges china and understanding how they make that transition from bring -- being a pure mercantile to being more domestically focused. they have had a recent strong increase in debt. when any of us look at the yen, the risk is china and how one understands that transition. tom: let's continue on the global ramifications of some of these markets. no question, the move today is a move of optimism. coming up, a conversation with mohamed el-erian. an important op-ed on "bloomberg view." london. week from francine, myself, michael mckee, john farrell, matt miller, a

dissipate and might it return? this is asking what has happened to china. nothing has really changed, does it all have to do with the fed? mike amey is with us. everyone was freaked out about china in davos. they add stimulus and then we forget about china. mike: i think there are two things going on. we had the great uncertainty, the devaluation -- nobody expected it. that put it center stage. more recently, i think the stability of the dollar is probably key. china comes into play internationally. the yen rallying hard. the dollar being relatively stable against the other majors is pretty good. unless they make a significant domestic policy mistake or move
5:24 am
-- china is going to be there. china is going to be an issue. it is going to be with us for years, frankly. tom: the word i've been using a lot lately is adjacency. who has the biggest adjacency issues with china? japan, south korea, who is it? mike: you could argue both. you could argue that the u.s. has adjacency with china because of the currency peg. you have a slightly trippy situation whereby everybody wants to manage devaluation in a way that it does not destabilize markets. the u.s. is trying to get itself off the zero lower bound. we continue to operate at a very low pace. you have this tricky threading of the needle through this relatively tricky set of circumstances. i think the key one is how china can break itself away from the
5:25 am
u.s., actually. tom: when we look at the dynamics, i have to go back to our lead, if we were not distracted by the united kingdom. kuroda's comments. those comments and the bank of japan directly affect china. and the salvaging of all been on mac's. -- abenomics. mike: i think it is quite a big deal for the japanese, for a number of other countries. how is it possible to get away from the zero lower bound? i think in terms of the cyclical influence on china, i'm not sure it is the big one. i think the messaging out of japan and whether they can never get themselves out of this particularly difficult period is the interesting one. i don't think that is necessarily china-related. francine: right. you say china has to do with dollar strength.
5:26 am
what happens of chair janet yellen hikes in july? mike: i think if she were to do that, she would want to give us some indication ahead of that. she is not going to say anything until we get the brexit thing out of the way. we do think they want to get rates up this year. hike is a 60% chance of a this year according to the markets. dexcom placet of and is probably the wrong word, but we should all recognize -- there is a bit of -- complacent is probably the wrong word, but we should all recognize that it is coming. we will talk about the impact of brexit coming up. ♪ you guy's be good. i'll see you later

6:07 am
this week, ultimately, this is unfortunately, a strong element of bias. cultural and racism inside it. it is not pronounced, but it does there. i think most of the voters will understand this. i think david cameron speech, referring to the key role that england had in europe was key. board was putlow -- i guess, where you see a lot of immigrants. the point we have been trying to understand is the camps are not talking about the same thing. seem to onlyters be talking about immigration, or what they call, sovereignty. the others are focused on the more immediate economy. >> the fact that they think turkey would join the eu is crazy. francine: we don't know. .> it is not an agenda this has been delayed for in the 10 years. for. is no process

every country has a choice. i can guarantee you there are lots of continental european countries with thesis. the fact that you use this as a key argument -- francine: we have to remain neutral. something on the other site, they will say, this is something that the government would want to assess. >>-eight this boat will be against history and what has happened so far. it is a joke too far. it is the speculative argument. the second thing is the imf position. i think the imf position is even more radical. in the case of brexit, the gdp impact is likely around 5%. of people being laid off. a great heritage of
