team for in-depth coverage of all of our cap stories -- top stories. mike mckee with a preview from the fed minutes from meeting. the odds of a fed rate hike for 2016 finally above 50%. any clarity we will be able to get today? said the july statement the near-term risks to economic outlook had diminished, but it's not provide any warning that a rate increase was imminent. we did get that yesterday with dudley and lockhart. we have pulled forward the timing of the next great move from march yesterday morning to december today. you look at the chart and it defines market schizophrenia.
7:04 am
maybe the minutes will give us some clarity as to fed thinking. who is on what side here in the debate? at this point, people don't know what the fed is doing. dudley encompassed the fact that that that might not even know what they're doing as well. you are mispricing and imminent rate hike, but it is still lower for longer. are we looking at a total rethink of fed policy in the fed? mike: it is not a total rethink, we are getting very close to it. sheets the fed's balance since the beginning of the crisis and nominal gdp, they put a floor under the crisis in 2009. since then, they have not been able to generate growth or inflation, no matter how big the balance sheet gets and how low interest rates are. janet yellen will have

7:07 am
you have low visibility come are you going to cut jobs? cutting jobs takes conviction, pausing hiring does not. job openings in the u.k. fell. is the real story. we have other data we want to look to in the united states. target reported second-order earnings about 30 minutes ago. they beat on earnings per share, but there is an disappointment. isnnon: the key number comparable same-store sales. those dropped 1.1%, the first time they have declined for target in more than two years. the ceo said it will not get any better in the second half of the year, the company cutting their guidance for the full year and the second half of the year.
7:08 am
we've seen the stock down about 3%, there were some warning signs this could happen. in the first quarter, the ceo was saying they could see sales dropping -- a difficult consumer environment, consumers are not spending. we have seen that at some retailers but of retailers, we still seen providing strong results. not everyone is a winner. if you have a great, strong product and great store experience, consumers will be going there. if you don't have what consumers want, people will not just go there because your doors are open. david: what did we learn about lowe's today? vonnie: yesterday, home depot yesterday,- shannon: home depot look goed good. lowe's has not been able to

alix: this is "bloomberg ." fed minutes from july's meeting out later today. after the more hawkish comments history, there is now 50% chance of a rate hike this year for the first time since the brexit vote. .oining us now is greg peters he manages the prudential total return bond fund and helps to oversee the firm's assets -- good to see you. do we need to see a real rating of the yield curve higher
7:15 am
if we continue to see higher rate expectations? greg: it's amazing to me that there is so much focus on the fed minutes this morning. it's clear that the markets have been leaning against what the fed has been saying now for the past couple of years. now, it is the coin flip in the year end. they are data dependent. i was reading a bunch of articles last night and this morning, what to look at in the fed minutes. i'm not sure it's going to be a lot there to hang your hat on and into the day -- at the end of the day, the fed is data dependent. jon: are they? greg: supposedly. if you do get strong economic data here in the u.s., i do believe you have a replay of last year, fourth quarter. alix: are we looking at a backup in the yield curve like we saw in japan a few weeks ago? greg: i don't think so.
7:16 am
i'm not overly worried about the curve steepening, i'm not worried about race moving higher in a meaningful way. -- the rates moving higher in a meaningful way. i'm inspecting yields to rally -- the markets are dissipating the fed is tightening for no reason and leading you closer to the edge of recession. i'm not overly worried about yields moving higher. where i can be horribly wrong around that is the fiscal side. you hear a lot of chatter about physical, fiscal, physical, not only in the u.s., but also in europe and japan. if that has teeth to it, that could be a game changer. it is too early, it is just chatter, but that is the one thing we are focused on in terms of changing the yield dynamic. jon: we have this conversation a lot on this program.
7:17 am
these countries we talk about running fiscal, they're running huge budget deficits. what is fiscal stimulus even look like? we're talking about fiscal stimulus in the u.k. how much bigger does the budget deficit need to be for to become stimulative? in my mind, having negative rates and not being aggressive on the fiscal side is a wasted opportunity. i understand the debt stock is too high and we are over indebted across the globe, but you the end of the day, need to see these countries take advantage of this negative rate environment in order or i think. -- in order to move forward, i think. understand the need for austerity, but i don't know if austerity is the answer at this went when you are in such a negative yield environment.
7:18 am
alix: the concern is we are seeing a lot of bubbles being created. carl icahn weighed in on this yesterday. -- moneyot of buy back is not going into capital. think of it as a rich family that has a lot of fun, sits around the pool and keeps printing up ious to the town. you keep going until you go broke. the registries are building huge bubbles. alix: you take on duration risk or credit risk? might i wonder if there be something else in these minutes that could come out that could change where markets react. maybe we should change the entire paradigm -- you heard it from williams and bullard a few months ago. would that change the market? greg: i think so.
7:19 am
i'm not sure it's going to be out in the minutes. jackson is attacking that same issue. i'm not sure exactly what was going to come out there. yes, it is being revisited, and i think that is a good thing. it's clear that after so many years of this stimulus type of policy, you're not seeing the boost in the thrust. i do think williams is on to something. honestly, they are waging the wrong war. there is a different paradigm and i think the fed is slowly starting to recognize that. you, greg peters. some breaking news for you. potential m&a wednesday, united bancshares said to be in talks to buy cardinal financial. through.still may fall

david: this is "bloomberg ." stock has been dropping, according to a new poll put out by bloomberg politics. trump was narrowly picked over clinton -- that number is down from the advantage in the june poll win trump led by 50%-30%. for more, we bring in megan murphy.
7:23 am
this targeted registered voters with money in the market and it shows that trump is losing some of that advantage. megan: he's lost a lot of that advantage. there is a bigger split with people who have more money in the markets. more money you have in the markets, the more you are losing confidence in donald trump as your guy. he still has a narrow advantage with people with relatively smaller sums the market, but if he loses that high money, traditionally establishment leaning crowd of people, that is not a good sign for him. david: you also asked specifically about tax policy. it was interesting come on the buffet role that says people who make $1 million or more should have a minimum tax of 30%, it showed a narrow majority in favor. megan: these statistics read incredibly, but it goes to

highlightgoes to tax plan which does favor the wealthy. is he really in alignment and on the right side of these issues with the majority of people he's targeting? the number ofg rates and reducing the overall tax rate, it was somewhat surprising -- not the support one would have thought. megan: it is counterintuitive. we think this cohort of voters would have been the most sensitive to bringing the top rates down, lowering the corporate tax rate. we have not seen that level of support -- there is still a way to go, but it does show that perhaps this trend of the
7:25 am
perception of rising inequality that perhaps the tax system that is rigged in favor of the wealthy, this is something that is gaining traction more up-and-down and across the voter covert. david: there seems to be a shakeup at the trump campaign. megan: it is a shakeup. they cannot talk their way out of this one. bannonve elevated steve and kelly and conway -- known to outspoken,y antiestablishment member of the party as this very senior figure in the campaign. paul manafort was brought in to keep trump disciplined. talking all day today whether he's been demoted or how they want to spin this one. campaign firing on all cylinders that --

7:35 am
david: we just heard from president williams raising questions about the overall paradigms. is that fed getting ready to think maybe the overall paradigm has to shift? the cottage industry of u.k. economics mohammed came out of -- i think of the great program at rice university as well. , they arethree basis in a bit of a prisoner's dilemma. they are sorting through that with great respect for the yellenges jerr chair has -- she was handed a fed policy were none of it was in the textbook. you talk about effectiveness, you really wonder how they can regain the confidence in the markets. the dots are here and the vigilantes are down here --

7:37 am
conversation on the fed -- with minutes outting's today -- paul krugman on bloomberg tv. paula: an accumulation of evidence that monetary policy is pretty ineffective. we came into this thinking monetary policy of zero rates was an effective, then along came qe, then along came negative rates. this all these other things that central banks can do, but it's not doing much. jon: monetary policy is an effective, according to paul krugman. joining us now is tom porcelli. fascinating about that conversation, he pivots away from saying it is an effective effective to sing maybe they should raise at the
7:38 am
fed -- is it because the inflation target is too low? i would submit to you that it is ineffective because the transfer mechanism is broken. think about what lower rates are supposed to do, stimulate economic activity. if there is not a lot of our way going on and not a lot of lending going on, you will not have these low rates be able to have the intended effect on the economy. that is what we saw, particularly early on in the backdrop. consumers were not demanding loans. banks were not in the mood to make loans. necessarily a monetary policy problem. monetary policy has done all it can do. you have these roadblocks in the way. it makes for the easy
7:39 am
characterization that monetary policy is an effective. having a debate about raising the inflation target? why does raising it make it somehow easier? tom: context is key here. if the fed actually does go to this idea of raising the inflation target -- let me boil it down to the most simple idea. the fed thinks policy is going to stay lower for longer. that's all that is a reflection of. raising the inflation target doesn't mean the fed can all of a sudden just magically raise inflation. issues people are saying for why monetary policies and effective apply to this conversation as well.
7:40 am
that monetary policy is ineffective apply to this conversation as well. alix: williams and bullard have come out and said the old rulebook does not work anymore. we don't think the fed has many more hikes in them. a handful of hikes left at best. the next downturn will come, the fed has to cut rates toward zero. cut rates as close to zero as possible, job on the markets and roll into other rounds i of qe. markets and roll into other rounds of qe.

tantrum. see yields back up in that regard, but for those people looking for material backing up of yields, sustainable backing up of yields, they will be disappointed. the reality for this backdrop is there's not a lot of inflation we can actually find right now. you're probably speaking to one of the few economists who has highlighted that there is let's inflation -- less inflation than is appreciated. jon: thank you very much for coming on the program. putting the inflation target of two percentage points to try to energize inflation expectations. many market participants sit here and say you are at zero, you have done 80 billion qe everything on, you cannot do it now.

8:04 am
more boring but as we look at the fed minutes this afternoon, we have to keep in mind that these are more dated than usual. gdpfed had not seen the q2 numbers or the extensive back revisions and had not seen the last jobs report which sound of the all clear. alix: dudley and lockhart saw those last 24 hours and spoke of a potential rate heart -- rate hike. will this get the market re- rating higher? fed will have to start a communications campaign to put december on the map. september is simply too soon. alix: thanks very much. makes it more difficult are the retail earnings we get it the consumer was posted be the back bone of growth. of thewe know it some retail suppliers have been doing.
8:05 am
we now look at the puzzle of retail sales. we got the earnings report from target which was a mixed bag. they were able to beat expectations in part because of cost cutting per when you look at same-store sales which is a key indicator that investors look for, they were down 1.1%. this is the first time same-store sales have fallen at target in two years. the ceo told investors don't expect it to get better and the second half. he expects sales the rest of the year that could be down as much as 2%. the consumer might be feeling more confident but when it comes to real, true brick and mortar retail and companies like target, we don't see it in the numbers. the have been retailers doing well but it is not a strong enough consumer that everybody is thriving in this environment. david: we also got some numbers from lows.
8:06 am
what does that tell us about where the consumer is now? >> another mixed bag. the earnings were up 9% and they said they see consumers investing in their home and they feel are hamas an asset which says something about the strength of the housing market and lows comes out with a big disappointment for investors. lowe's cannot capture that tailwind of spending coming from consumers. there is a market of winners and losers right now and not every retailer will succeed. the consumer is still modest and spending in targeted ways. david: walmart is still to come, thank you so much. the u.k. votes to lead the european union and the unemployment potentially rises and we face negotiations. maybe not. what's the story? big expectations ahead of
8:07 am

they saw inflation picking up and that is a concern down the road if it continues to rise the on to the target. it will be a wait and see whether the employment numbers will pick up. jonathan: we will bring in the retail sales right here. thank you so much. it's all about the fed in the markets but there are also earnings. we got the disappointing numbers from the lows and target urban outfitters is a different story. cops sales were to the upside, rising 1% in the company is raised to a buy. it was due to brand sales. in the second% quarter. another stock on the move is cisco. we get earnings after the bell this evening but it could that they will cut 14,000 of its which is 20% of

a weaker u.s. dollar boosted commodities but could janet yellen crush the rally? we will debate that in our coming up from new york, worldwide, this is bloomberg. ♪
8:12 am
8:13 am
alix: commodities are down today with a stronger dollar that is the bottom here? we will ask andrew mckenzie who was on the front lines. seee are starting to evidence of the u.s. domestic gas market. the next market to rebalance more properly will be the oil market.
8:14 am
that is probably a year or two off. thereafter, we have to go to the end of this decade to see a fully rebalanced market for metals. joining us now for the co dtable is michael ophen. else looks at the dayton says we will have oversupply and we are looking at the back of the decade to we get talents. what is the difference? >> we primarily think the supply side will be slower in growth. we got this good growth this year out of perot. u. we think supply growth be relatively poor. there has been a lot of headlines in last couple of weeks about surging supply.
8:15 am
there will be some significant growth on a gross basis over the next couple of years with new projects. on a net basis given what's happening with chile and the significant cut in investment budget, we think net growth will be pretty poor post-2017. andrew mckenzie was saying natural gas first and then oil. does that matchup? in natural gas, we see prizes moving higher toward the end of the year and there is the potential for pricing to exceed expectations in the first quarter. it's because of production issues. on the oil side, what we have seen over the last couple of months is nigerian production has continued to come off. barrels per day off from nigeria and also venezuela is outputting less.
8:16 am
from a rebalancing perspective, we got this large level of inventory we have to contend with. yet the market still has a longer-term tightening story. to the extent to try to price that in earlier, we think that happens beginning in the fourth quarter. for the next couple of weeks, there will be a macro picture and a high level of inventory that the market has to contend with before we get to product draws we should see when refineries begin their turnaround. premium production in america increase for the first time in six months. that is a big part of the shale story. what we have seen over the last couple of weeks is that producers have exceeded expectations. what they are
8:17 am
prepared to do in terms of their expectations for the market. only one small slice of the global oil market pie. 1.4 million barrels per day may grow by 200,000 barrels per day next year but in light of a demand picture that is to growing by a million barrels per day and in light of other non-opec supply that is falling by 700,000 barrels per day, we think the market will get concern and we did to see a higher price to dispatch more and more u.s. shale into the market. let's take a look at supply issues. where might we see the most supply in copper that could put a dent in your relatively balance forecast for the next 1.5 years. premium -- there has been a lot of growth in peru.
8:18 am
we don't think there is more growth there. there is potential in africa in zambia. these areas of been constrained in terms of supply growth in recent years due to a lack of power supply. also inseen some growth zambia with one project that was just started late last year. it's ramping up now and there is potential that the power issue needs to be solved before significant growth happens. to see growth there, you need to have the power constrained situation solved. .2 issomething else you the copper that is coming online across the world is lower.
8:19 am
asit's not worth as much cannot replace any kind of production loss you might have from the good stuff. in, the market factors that what do you think the upside is prices? to get the same tonnage of refined copper, you have to process more dirt to get there. that major production costs are on -- are under upward pressure. you need more machinery to get to the same volume of copper. we think the copper costs, production costs will not go down further. they fell a lot last year. this year, we think there has been a change. you see the commodity currencies of generally been picking up again. we see a lot of the q2 results from copper miners under pressure from costs picking up.
8:20 am
we probably got to a floor at least. in terms of where the prices go think the supply will struggle on the back end of this decade. the mining space is crushed in 2012. there are such a long lead time between spending now in bringing on an production and its typically 8-10 years between development and production in the copper mining space. we are likely to see higher prices on the back end of this decade. it could be $7,000 per ton by the end of the decade. alix: what is the fair price now? key concern is clearly what is going on in the macro side of things. if the fed raises rates in
8:21 am
september and the market is not expecting that, i think that is the key risk to isis to the broader commodity complex as we go into september. we think prices get up into the 60's in the first half of next year. shale is not a light switch. the rest of oil production is not a light switch that can be turned on over the course of a month or two. there is a high level of inventory but at the same time, in order to prepare for 2018 and beyond, we will need to see a higher price. stuff but $7,000 for copper. thank you so much. that's a pretty bold call by the end of the decade. that's very out-of-the-box. david: that was a great commodities discussion. coming up, wy stevenn prepares to open the most expensive

8:34 am
david: yesterday, a word from sam moselle open he said he was yesterday, we heard from sam zell. >> you have to look at supply. there is ancity, 18% increase in the hotel space. that's in two or three years. that has to have an impact on cash flows. ,hey are building hudson yards 12 million square feet of office space. i'll say 10 or 12 million feet of additional demand. david: that's not what you want to hear when you are the one building it. is the chief executive of related companies. that is your project.
8:35 am
welcome back to the program. how is your cash flow doing? >> cash flows are good. hudson yards is going great and we have 10 million square feet under construction today. we have over 5 million square feet of office space signed and leased and another. 2 million square feet in negotiation i'm not sure sam had all the facts together on's -- on hudson yards. we seem to be doing great but there is a lot of addition to supply. people keep saying there is too much and how will that work out. office space is not office space. there is a different shooting factor between the new product being developed and what exists. in new york city, safety percent -- 50% of our office spaces under 50 years old. companies don't want to occupy those spaces. the way people work today is different than how they worked 50 years ago.
8:36 am
we are building the office spaces of the future. technology, efficient layouts and heating and cooling systems and you can look at this -- these elevator systems that can handle the density and that does not exist in the old building so people are moving from the older towers the newer towers. david: the older ones don't go away. that happens in some of them and it's good for new york city b and lower class onbecause it encourages companies to move to new york like startup companies that may not have been able to afford the newer buildings. some of the gets repurposed into ,ther types of development hotels and residential and that is good for new york city. we are not competing necessarily with existing stock. people have realized that ceos have realized that office space is not just about where they occupy in where they work3. retention and attraction
8:37 am
tools of people are moving to locations where there employees want to be and where it's exciting and nightlife exists. we created that hold live-work-play environment in hudson yards. david: i think it's the largest commercial real estate project in u.s. history? that is a multiyear project. you've got to somehow make projections. for businessook at growth or business investment to fill that kind of space? largeare making a very bet on new york city first and foremost. also replacing a lot of existing space of we are building a better mousetrap and giving people a reason to move from some of the old space to bet onhe same time as we the macro economics of the future of new york city. when you look at the things happening around the world, new york city has become more attractive than it ever has.
8:38 am
you can talk about brexit or political strife, that is pushing investors to move capital to new york city. that capital flows into new york and is driving business activity and it will help us grow. the: you are nearing residential portion of hudson yards so can you give us an inside what the rental market in new york city is like? on september 14, we will open our sales office and begin sales , residential sales at hudson yards. those are for sale buildings, not rentals. people have talked about the top of the market or prices being too high in new york city. what has happened is the consumer becomes much more discerning as to what they are getting for what price. there is a lot of overpriced product right now coming to the market in new york city. what you need to do is
8:39 am
delivering the right product at the right price. for that, there are still lots of demand. on the rental market side, we some froth and the top end of the market. there has been addition to supply and a fair amount coming. some of our real estate tax abatements have expired over the last year. rush to get projects completed before the expiration of the program. that has not been renewed yet so i think you'll see a decline in supply and i think the rent will pop up after that. david: when you have a project of this magnitude, it has to have an effect on the marketplace overall. does it drive down prices for others? does it take market share from other competitors? >> new york city is growing. does not all have to come from competitors. i think it's similar to the office market.
8:40 am
people like to move to newer, better product over time and that's what we are delivering. turn to have eufinance things like these because you do a lot of financing. where are you looking around the world for financing for this size of a project? this is ultimately a $25 million development. there is not one answer for this. the money for capital for this project comes from all around the world. there is no part of the world we have not uncovered. of sovereignation wealth funds, pension funds, debt from institutions, u.s. and foreign. we have touched on virtually every type of fund raising possible for this. it's been said there is a lot of amateurs in the real estate market. is there the feeling that investors are too overweight in commercial real estate and
8:41 am
residential? >> in the last year or so in my travels around the world and talking to sovereigns and pension funds, there is movement to push more capital for urban markets. it goes back to what the alternatives are. interest rates are zero. real estate provides a relatively predictable recurring stream of cash flow. neither -- an even greater movement to move capital in the u.s.. david: at some point, the drive can make estate capital to freely available and it can put pressure on these projects. you might have too much borrowing to support what the cash flow is. >> underwriting has not really shifted. from a debt perspective, you are not seeing that kind of frothing us. prices for stabilized assets
8:42 am
become pretty high. citys are high in new york but i think it has become a safe haven for capital from around the world. make of someo you of the retail products like blackstone who has a big reit fund coming up? are you invested in that? we have a fund management business and we raise capital for that business as well. we don't do any retail so all of our investors are institutions, pension funds, sovereign wealth funds. david: what do you think about it? >> it's a way of smaller individuals able to access core real estate assets where they don't have a way to do that. whether or not an individual is better off buying a publicly traded reit, i'm not sure what the benefit is to the individual to have locked up capital versus
8:43 am
public money. david: we saw others in the u.k. after the brexit vote of as people's -- people tried to get out. maybe ended made -- maybe individual investors don't understand the liquidity. an individual, i figure makes more sense to invest in the public companies. advantagese what the to put money into a locked up type of investment. some of them are not marked on a regular basis. the public, and his or market daily. some people like to put the money in and forget about it and not look at what the values are each day. it's just an individual investor decision. david: thank you so much. coming up, the first time the center for automated technology is drifting away from detroit. we will discuss where and white

restructuring of the automakers, they re-consolidated around detroit. the way the technology is changing, they need to be part of the silicon valley ecosystem. to hire talented people and there is good tech talent out there but it's not just finding the talent. they are swimming in that ecosystem and sharing ideas with colleagues at other companies, people who have worked at other startups and it gives them a different set of ideas than they get from their traditional midwestern base. david: how large an investment will they make in silicon valley and what is the timeline? are notnvestments particularly huge unless you are buying a company. gm has spent more than $1 billion by buying cruise automation and lyft but they are getting equity in companies.

transportation and mobility will change in the coming century. you mentioned the gm investment in lyft and crews. which car companies are ahead in this move toward mobility? >> there are some dark horses. if you asked me 24 hours ago, i isld tell you ford considerably behind that they have been doing a lot of work that the surface. they are aiming to be as aggressive as bmw or anyone else. bmw and mercedes are among the leaders who have great on road capabilities. as well as the most advanced -- tesla has the most adaptive system. it's been controversial because thinklot makes people it's more self driving than it is. having self driving

9:06 am
comments that affected the dollar or were there more technical reasons? i think the hawkish comments made huge difference. dollar-yen was sliding through 100 and it looked like we would have a profound move. it stopped dollar-yen in its tracks. the asian markets responded appropriately. if anything, i am surprised about how muted the response has been in the likes of said fund futures. jonathan: why are you so surprised about that? >> you are probably right, i should not be surprised. it's probably a credibility issue. and we see the september fed fund futures move ahead by 1.5 basis points.
9:07 am
our calculation was 1.5% which would looks way too low. the market is being groomed to think they are more correct than the fed and have been for quite some time and are inclined not to believe the fed at this point. yesterday it was about a dovish fed and then activity toward a hawkish fed. what is the communication and what do you read? are trying to say we are data dependent. the problem with that is that if that data reverses, makes it to predict this. it's a difficult message to give.
9:08 am
the market is not getting the message now. of the issue is the catch 22. they telegraph a rate hike in the dollar rallies. do you believe the catch-22 thesis? >> i think it was more havilland at the start of the year. it's primarily because it was hurting the dollar-china. that the market got used to the idea that dollar-china can move by 1%, the world will not end. we are in a much better place in terms of the dollar knock on effect. the other aspect is that oil has found a mid range. $45 give-and-take is no grand thing. picked out a couple of dates like august 21 with janet yellen speaking and the decision by the fed in
9:09 am
september. we expecting from janet yellen? there is an expectation we will get some kind of communication as to what they will do in september. is it some kind of thought piece? it's probably more of a thought piece but there might be a few clues in the next hike and timing of the fact that they are open to a hike this year perhaps. it might also be something to do like the peace from williams. out a paper and the market misconstrued that and said it was dovish. they are putting out a range of potential scenarios where the fed has to think the rate is lower than previously believed. to defend the fed and its communications. maybe they are telling us all they know. the communication is not that there will be a rate hike in september but they say that's a possibility.
9:10 am
the markets will level of certainty that does not exist. >> there is some truth in that. issue, they are taking a somewhat hawkish of view for the short term. the have a dovish view for long-term. they are trying to say the terminal rate is coming down. how the market will receive that is interesting. the market might say they can live with that. alix: we have seen someone of a risk on rally in currencies. how do risk assets want up responding to that? it is confusing now. throughd like risk on the janet yellen speech and then i thought we would get to the
