5:01 am
the earning news, but i thought the italian bank workout was really interesting over the weekend. quiet, as always, but that will be front and center. it reminds me of how complex the calculation of dilution is. that is what it is about -- equity shareholders getting crushed. at howe: also looking reliable the stress tests are. let's get to the bloomberg business flash. taylor: one police officer was killed in a suicide attack in baghdad. authorities say they killed two attackers in a gunbattle. committing to the triple lot guarantee.- lock the former minister responsible

for pensions called it to be scrapped. the backlash is growing over donald trump's comments over the parents of a dead muslim american soldier. trump questioned whether the soldier's mother was not allowed to speak at the democratic convention because she was muslim. the woman said she was too distraught. a number of republicans joined hillary clinton in condemning donald trump's comments. hillary will appear with another billionaire supporter. she will campaign in omaha with warren buffett. she was joined in pennsylvania over the weekend by billionaire mark cuban. riggs, this is bloomberg. tom: thanks so much. that is a big deal, warren buffett weighing in at this time. it will be quiet through august. i don't think we have an august
5:03 am
that is quiet through this presidential campaign. francine: it does not feel significant that hillary clinton is going to omaha. i'm not sure with the voting swings are. it feels a little bit different. it is unusual for warren buffett to way and -- in? tom: i think it is unusual at this time of year. for our global audience, nebraska is not a swing state or a battleground state, but mr. buffett carries a certain tone to a certain part of america that maybe is on the sidelines. we will have much more on this. a tumultuous weekend of presidential politics. equities, bonds, currencies, commodities. euro turning. oil is front and center. 41.18. on to the next screen. the big 12.25.
5:04 am
brent, 43.10. yen is stunning. ,ou use dollar-mexican peso pretty quiet. francine? francine: this is what i picked up. banks are under pressure. i thought this was significant. it opened higher on the back of the ecb stress tests. this is a picture for some of the european stocks. overall, they are flat. tom: i want to bring up deutsche bank. deutsche bank, german, london-based. down we go. the blue line, we are really getting right near there. there is a certain fragility to the banks. most of that is due to a
5:05 am
pre-workout dilution calculation. which is pretty ugly. francine: it is ugly. i'm a little bit jealous you picked some of the european banks. you are right on the money there. the concern is that they did not really test their weakness. this is what i chose. this is something to do with t-bills. the amount of t-bills outstanding is the blue chart. the percentage in the u.s. treasury market. the squeeze on the u.s. treasury bills which compromise 11% of the u.s. treasury debt market, is getting worse. tom. this for you, it is another way of looking at treasuries and what the impact on t-bills is. let's get more now from eric nielsen. great to have you on the program.
5:06 am
we spoke to a couple fed presidents over the weekend. i'm not sure with the market is latching onto. it is overall uneasiness of what comes next. the real momentum is the fed and central banks. >> i think that is right. for me, the stress test is not the big deal. with thento this year fed saying they would probably hike four times. communication from the fed has not been great. i think the market is really confused right now. francine: we actually caught up with robert kaplan. i think september is very much on the table. i think we will have to see how events unfold. it is too soon to jump to a conclusion on that.
5:07 am
one of the things i've learned as a central banker, you've got to be patient and we've got time to make a judgment between now and the september meeting. i want to take advantage of that time. we have two job reports between now and then. i want to get the benefit of that information before commenting. tom: why with a hike before a u.s. presidential election? would you not wait until that is over? erik: i think you would want to wait if you think trump is a real possibility. it is so hard to believe that he is a possibility sitting here, but it is too close for confidence. there would be such an uncertainty if he were to become president. . don't know kaplan he has not been around for very long in this job and does not have a background in monetary policy. with all respect, i don't think i is the greatest -- sorry, don't think he is the right
5:08 am
communicator to be listening right now -- listening to right now. erik.ood morning, it is august. in normal danish tradition, i'm sure you will be taking four or five weeks off during this month. but as the tension so strong that you will be working through august? do we go lazy, do we take time off, or is there a crisis tone during the month? tom. good point, i can back from vacation last night to work through august. already, my two weeks as we do in europe, and it has been very good. i should have more, i think. on a serious note, there is a lot going on -- it feels very uncertain. we talked about the banks. big as anstill very
5:09 am
uncertainty. the enormous uncertainty we are heading into. tom: remind us of the relationship of the bund is bank des bankecb -- bund thi and the ecb. remind us where they are in outrage over peripheral challenges? that my view on this is they are much closer to the ecb than most people appreciate. speak the top line. i sense is that the relationship is not bad and the bundesbank is what the bundesbank is. germany has clearly let up the
5:10 am
pressure on the peripheral. people were on the phones to help block the commission's plans to penalize spain and portugal. the bank test was one issue. think there is anything between the bundesbank and ecb. tom: if you are just joining us, italian bank bailouts seem to be the theme today. next hour, ira jersey. with oppenheimer fund. the dynamics of interest rates wrapped around sluggish economies, wrapped around two baseball teams in new york that needed better august. this is bloomberg. ♪

5:13 am
francine: i'm francine lacqua in london. tom keene is in new york. waror: uber has ended its in china. they will take a market share in didi. uber investors haven't pushing profit ine china sisony postede the latest quarter. ony got a lead in gaming consuls by launching a virtual reality headset.
5:14 am
a plan involving private investors to bolster finances for an italian bank. unicredit was the second worst performer in the stress test. francine: thank you so much, taylor. let's get more on the european bank stress test. nick, great to have you on the program. you have been looking at deutsche bank and barclays. were they tested in the right way with sufficient stress? nick: well, it is a question of who you ask. there are a lot of banks complaining how tough they were before hand. we have a lot of criticism of banks saying they could have been tougher. scenarios which are a lot tougher than they were the first time around.
5:15 am
on top of that, if you are a big investment bank, this time, you have to take account of your potential legal risks. that hurt a lot of the big banks , especially deutsche bank. 220 pointse bank -- of capital decline was from legal risk. it is a tougher set of tests, one can't deny it. francine: unicredit, deutsche bank, barclays, what did it mean in terms of capital rate earnings? nick: among those names, i don't think we are going to see any determined by this test. all three of those banks you named are assuming their plans to shrink their way to capital strength. that is something that the market environment has been pushing for anyway. i don't think there is going to be any bank that comes out with a capital increase, a share sale
5:16 am
on the back of this increase come with the -- increase, with of the catalyst pushing toward recognizing their deficits at monte paschi. tom: europe seems to be playing by a different playbook than the united states. i think we have an understanding of who gets diluted in the united states. is it the same group in europe? there a difference in the cramdown of dilution? it is pretty similar to the u.s. in terms of their equity structure. sometimes, they have a charitable wing in there as well. there are a bunch of cooperative banks who are in a tougher position, where they have to
5:17 am
convince the clients, who are their shareholders, to really stumped on more capital. where it gets really complicated is on the bond side. you have a lot of small retail investors who bought the bank .onds from many different banks wanting to believe these were ,aving products and not risky but now the discussion is if a bank goes bust, the bondholders have to front the cost. while you don't necessarily have a bank going bust on the horizon , that does make things a lot more complicated. francine: thank you so much. nick comfort. k, does the economy needs strong banks or do strong banks need the european economy? what can we do to get the banks back in better shape? erik: you need both of them.
5:18 am
let's start with the issue raised -- is the stress test tough enough? i think it is a bit of a silly thing. if you want to be negative, you can say, you could have made it tougher. the stress test was an enormous shock. what hurts a bank is a recession , it is not the smaller details. yes, you could always find something that could have been tougher, but this was one heck of a tough stress test to put the banks through. look at it is not so much where the capital ratios are now, it is the change from that with this shock. the shockers were some of the german banks and the irish banks. paschiready knew monte was a tougher one.
5:19 am
i think it is a bit picky to say you could have tested it harder. francine: fair. tom: is there a discussion of helicopter money in europe? is helicopter money even core of 17ven a nation's? erik: yes, it is feasible. let's call a spade a spade. we haven't already. helicopter money is when you run a bunch of deficit and there is qe at the same time. if you want to finesse it and be promisenomic, it is a -- a credible promise up front that the increase of base money will stay with us forever. we don't know that, we don't know that in the u.s., we don't know that in japan. the chances are that it probably will. i think the overwhelming possibility is that we haven't already. francine: thank you so much. erik nielsen stays with us for
5:20 am
the hour. but seven look at something. banks under pressure. came at a times of growing pessimism. this is a picture of monte pasch i gaining. and deutsche bank are under pressure. this is bloomberg. ♪

francine: this is "bloomberg surveillance."
5:24 am
i'm francine lacqua in london. tom keene in new york. tom, this is my morning must-read. "there was a time when the u.s. consumer was still king." mind that the consumer is the same person -- most consumers are prone to moments rage nowadays. whether that translates into a vote for donald trump depends. tom: it is an important insight. it reminds me of stephen roach, who has been heated for years over the true weakness of the american consumer. that?ielsen, do you see that there is some gross or aggregate american consumer numbers that are frankly pretty good, but that the actual
5:25 am
disposable income of a have not america is lower and lower and lower and flat? two things, tom. on the one hand, you are actually right. for the big middle class of america, you have not seen an income increase for a generation. that has to be addressed. it is a fundamental problem. the increase we have seen in real income in the last year or so is all due to the low oil prices and low inflation. you have this unusual situation that real income has gone up because inflation has come down. people feel differently about that. it does not feel as good. but it is still an increase and you don't see the effect on consumption in quite the same way. in all of the oil importing
5:26 am
countries, this could be true. you see it in europe very much also. it is exactly the same picture. it is a consumer-led recovery. francine: is that what we have brexit? erik: i think brexit is a bigger story. immigration, confusion, little englanders, lots of issues. tom: let's come back. we will speak on the greater european economy. what a weekend for american politics. i don't know where to start. they do. ren thisn and help he afternoon. this is bloomberg. ♪

5:30 am
first, let's get to first word news with taylor. in remarks in a speech prepared for each of, investors are underestimating the number of great hikes for this year. hit high balloon tension power lines in texas. the national transportation safety board says it will look at a number of factors including reports of foggy weather. the government of hong kong has from nextdidates month's elections. two candidates have been disqualified after refusing to sign a pledge. in poland, pope francis told young people that they need to

5:32 am
fast majority of our citizens have had a stagnant income for a third of the century. finally, weeks. in 2008, a really serious financial crisis. i do not think we immunized ourselves adequately against another financial crisis. tom: here is a dirty low secret. bloomberg keyboard our stock of these -- are a stack of these. these are authoritative articles on what matters. what you need to know, what secretary clinton is to know, what mr. trump needs to know is the work has been done on inequality. .ichard dobbs is with us this is your new report on inequality. what was the biggest surprise about american inequality? the biggest surprise is, in america, 80% of people now earn less than people like
5:33 am
them previously. people do not mind classic inequality. if i am earning 10% more -- people do not get upset about that. what people get upset about is if they stop earning more and stop -- stop earning more and start earning less. of: let me turn the emotion around. are we going to be richer than our children -- a whole different emotion? track to be better off than our children. not everyone, but between 30% and 50% of the people. if we carry on on the current trajectory, we will be better off than our children's generation. we all want our children to be better off than we are. francine: this seems a little bit crazy. we're still growing. it must be a distribution
5:34 am
problem. redistribute things in a different way. has that changed? are the rich just getting richer because of monetary policy. >> we are growing glass. when you grow more, everyone rices. that is one element. the second element is we're getting more returns into the owners of growth capital than the owners of labor. we are finding that there is a segment not benefiting from growth. they are growing less than the earnings.the average the reason is these are people whose jobs are being disruptive, specifically by technology, immigration, trade. there is this tool course of people no longer benefiting from the whole system that has been wonderful for the last 30 years. francine: what do you mean we are growing less? gdp is rising, modestly, but still rising. >> but in a world that is
5:35 am
, everyone ise i going up. at sweden, here which permeated the report as countries that are different. is sweden istlier a union labor economy. is all we are talking about the atomization of the workforce? first of all, the skills. are we building the skills of people whose jobs are being displaced chocolate there is also questioned about whether we make sure that people get their share. we may not like it, but the fact ensure -- system does tom: interesting. k.t's bring in eric nelso
5:36 am
grows -- he economy isn't the issue really that the two small share of the population, particularly in the states, it's gaining too much of the increasing pie and there's nothing left for the rest of them? richard: absolutely. more growth would be better. if we did things like infrastructure spending, all of these things, that would help bring people out. we should not walk away from policies that get more growth. that is the first element. second, how should we think about getting the skills of these people that have been displaced to come up? people whose jobs are being displaced at the age of 50, they can step up. is are thereught
5:37 am
ways that we can ensure there is a segment that still is benefiting? francine: i guess the problem is if you have and it prints it -- is thisenticeship -- enough to explain the double jump phenomena? richard: you have a big part of the proposition that feels this .lace, in many ways and, the issues of immigration, it is all part of the economy. it is up to policymakers to redistribute and that has been done very poorly in the united states and several european countries, not all of them. the result of that issue is you get an enormous degree of people unhappy in the middle. in europe, the state has always been much more

president, just because it has been accepted. in the states, there has been huge backlash even to obamacare. for europeans, it is very hard to understand the health care is not a human right. if you go back to the second world war, it is difficult to make clear distinctions between the european model and the american model. capital growth has been the same in these countries. what we have seen over the last 10 years is many of them have fallen behind. what richardack to said. education is a big, big issue. i don't share your view on helicopter money, that that would lift people up. what we need to do is lift people up of value interest. that's about investment and education. tom: it dovetails back into
5:39 am
productivity. within your report, i don't see .linton or trump is this being considered by her politicians? i do not observe it? richard: there is a lot of interest in this amongst the political class in europe. there is a realization that when people stop advancing -- tom: is it just investment? richard: i do not think it is just investment. long-term, productivity. it is about education and those subsidies too. there is a sense that the political class recognizes this is driving inequality. there are groups that will never get to majority, but they will swing it. we saw with brexit, this will get -- they swung it. with he't tell this

5:44 am
china. he said basically that september is a live meeting. i think september is very much on the table. we will have to see how events unfold. it is too soon to jump to conclusions on that. one of the things i have learned, as the central banker, you have to be patient. we have time to make a judgment between now and the september meeting. i want to take advantage of that. two jobs report between now and then. perhaps more important, the president of the new york itd speaking in bali saying t is too soon to jump to conclusions. the outlook is pretty positive. you can see, it is premature to rule out further policy tightening this year. the most important thing to know is that, by tradition, the new

5:46 am
you should. if you do that, you see the interest rates have no business being where they are now. they have been held back by brexit, by china, markets, what have you. back to: i want to go hiring being better, inflation -- to have the feeling that if they have good data from now until september, they don't really want to hike, but they will be forced to? michael: not that they will be forced to high, but they get into a credibility issue. you look now with the market is in terms of pricing in the future course of interest rates, and you have basically a wide divergence between what the markets are saying and what the fed is saying. the net longs for the treasury are way, way up.
5:47 am
now, you look at a big drop in terms of the fed outlook. tom: see what you can do about this chart. this is the blended index from way back. we see a strong dollar there. export changing turn. we are right into this difficult turn. does janet yellen care about the red line? that -- he cares and: in that she cares it states in the vicinity. strongerot seen a dollar. what we did see in terms of net exports is that will wash out of the data and it will not subtract as much from gdp going forward. tom: it is august. get a secret raven fly?
