4:23 am
-- let's get the thoughts of nandini ramakrishnan. nandini: the data that was causing nervousness this year seems to stabilize somewhat and confirm some of that rebalancing story that we have been seeing in china. retail sales growing, industrial production lower but still at 5% year on year. that does confirm that consumption, that new china story is coming into fruition. mark: how much of a challenge is the property market with the state rise increases may be unsustainably high? nandini: when you have the government hoping out so much liquidity making sure markets are functioning properly, offering low credit for consumers and corporate, then you're going to have some asset price inflation. the housing market in china is one of those that most gets directly affected by that. the thing we are looking at is the differentiation between the peers, in terms -- between the

4:25 am
we are thinking about moving that up. mark: what are we now? 31 weeks, seven months of outflows from funds by asset managers. when is the love going to return to the european stock market? nandini: because of the market is a funny one in terms of exposure to certain industries, a lot more than you would expect in terms of industrials or s.ternational until we get more comfortable in the next 12 to 18 months about global growth, i think european stocks will get to use the benefit that the very accommodated ecb and some other forces we have been seeing might actually come through and attract a vet -- attract investors back. the biggest risk is logical risks. the italian bank story did not help sentiment for investors. some headlines and political issues that need to be worked
4:26 am
out before close should start coming in. mark: that period where we did not see moves. what is the significance of that? nandini: the sensitivity. when headlines of fed speakers or political elections are coming up, everything moves markets a lot more than when people are complacent and growth looks really good and you've got a rally ahead of you. we have come a long wait since the trough in 2009 at everything is just 2009. everything is just high percent -- 2009. everything is just hypersensitive. that is what we are seeing already. mark: 19 a, great to see you. -- mangini, great to see you. the --. brexit star says we will talk u.k. politics and

which wouldanything tie our shoelaces together in these terms. mark: joining us now is rob wood, chief u.k. economist at bank of america merrill lynch. pickup of .6, slightly below estimates. does it change your view of how quickly inflation is going to rise from here because of the weaker pound? rob: what we are also seeing as fromacross a bunch of data the ppi data and pmi that the sterling depreciation is feeding through into the inflationary point line and it is a question of, month-to-month figures are volatile but we know there is a change in prices. most -- itll the moved the most since december 2011. the bank of england will overlook it, does that seem to be the strategy?
4:35 am
rob: absolutely, i think it is the textbook strategy. if you have a rise in import prices that is not reflected in wages again expected to drop out against. the danger for central banks used to be you get a big drop and wage growth picks up. mark: real wages is the concern, with consumption being such an important part of the economy. how important is that going to not as real wages are strong as they were because of the pickup and the potential pickup in inflation? rob: it will be a big deal. i think this is a key part of the brexit shock that has not hit yet because it takes time. if you roll forward to next year it seems to me the average real wages are going to be falling again and we are going to move back from when we had rising real wages, and that'll be a deep debt a big deal for things

like retail sales. mark: we've heard a lot from carney in the past week or so. no change your forecasting this week, but how does the improving data changer expectations for november? in august when the bank implemented all of those measures the expectation was we would see a further cut in rates in november. has that changed was to mark -- has that changed? mark: i think november now looks unlikely. the data is a bit stronger than the bank of england expected and if you were sitting on that committee not sure about easing policy in august you will be not sure about november as well. the autumn statement on the 23rd of november, i think the bank of england is going to likely want to see that before deciding what to do with interest rate. i think that the shock we are seeing pre-brexit is actually less acute than i had expected, but i think there is still a shock.
4:37 am
if you look across the ride range of data it is still pretty soft and that means when you run into next year, i think the bank of england will look at it and say this is a bit weak and we need to ease policy more. mark: you say long-term the deterioration in trading terms will damage prosperity, will damage productivity, that remains the forecast. too many people can be focusing on the near-term nuances but the long-term economic case you say is very strong. rob: i think it is. we heard from the brexit minister yesterday who said he can conclude the negotiation in two years. what is it that is going to come out of that? it seems unlikely to me the u.k. can get as trading terms -- as as aftering terms leading -- leaving the eu.
4:38 am
i think that case is pretty strong. the exact size of the effect is very difficult to forecast. we saw the huge range of next miss -- estimates before the referendum that an awful lot of them were negative. forecastt are your gdp for the next six quarters? rob: minor pretty steady at .2. mark: in a recession? rob: no recession. ,he key thing that is happened i think it is quite sobering to think back when the conservative leadership election campaign was started. it was said it would conclude last week and it is quite sobering what the u.k. would look like if we had only just found out what our new prime minister -- who our new prime minister was. i think the bank of england can take a little bit of credit but by no sense of the imagination have they turn this around. mark: preemptive action was
4:39 am
wise? i know carney has been criticized. rob: i think it was wise and at the margin it has probably helped a bit, and talk of fiscal reset is also important. they do not change the long-term, they just smooth the adjustment. mark: fiscal reset, it seems as if massive projects will not be implemented on the 23rd of november. philip hammond has warned. what is the best we can expect on the autumn statement? statement,k the own we actually still know relatively little about how the economy is performing. we have no hard data on the service data which is nearly 4/5 of the service economy. if you look at the data today they're going to have to push up the deficit forecast. they are probably going to have to push up structural deficits because the kobe i will take into account this long-term outlook. they will probably be looking to

i think some of the emergency suggestions are unlikely. whichk what they could do is much easier to some sort of change to the investment profile, speed up some projects like road building and rail which is what philip hammond talked about. these huge infrastructure projects, you cannot just stand up and announce one. these take years and years to plan and implement so i do not think it is realistic to think about that as fiscal stimulus. i'm sure they would say, our ambition is to improve infrastructure over a long period. to see that being implemented i think will take quite a while. wood, chief economist at bank of america merrill lynch. european equities halting their three-day losing streak. , european investors
