2:05 pm
powered by more than 2600 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. i am mark crumpton. this is bloomberg. vonnie? vonnie: thanks. hard to believe but we are eight weeks away from election day. investors are weighing what impact a donald trump victory might have on the markets and economy. check out this chart. it is courtesy of bank of america-merrill lynch. many of the managers surveyed last week said a republican win in november is one of the biggest terrorist for the -- biggest tail risks for the u.s. economy. others include inflation taking off. daviddiscuss this with stockman, former manager of the elvis of management and budget under ronald reagan -- office of management and budget under ronald reagan, and the author of a new book. it is out ofieve this world that we might have a republican presidency? it is very possible
2:06 pm
because we are in a different ballgame. they had a phrase back in 1992, the clinton people, which said it's the economy, stupid. people today need to be saying it's the fed, stupid. the reason trump is unexpectedly doing so well in this election ispaign is flyover america hurting and hurting badly because of the negative impact of said policies-- fed policies. 2% inflation targeting is a job and wage destroy you. rates is a retirement hit of enormous magnitude. andive monetary stimulus turnedying has basically the stock market into a casino in the cease we-- c-suites of
2:07 pm
america, executives, into an alternative -- vonnie: what has trump concretely suggested as an alternative? david s.: he pointed out the elephant in the room. he said that this is a phony market, a false economy, and janet yellen should be ashamed of herself. finally, someone called attention to the core of the problem, which is the federal reserve. it has created massive wealth for the bicoastal elites, created enormous bubbles. ats market is crazy today its current value, 25 times trailing earnings when earnings are falling and sooner or later we are going to have a recession. therefore, the start of wisdom on this is to go after the heart of the problem, which is the federal reserve, and call them out for policies that only help wall street and punish -- he has called them out,
2:08 pm
but what you make of the rigor of his argument thus far? he says that the fed's acting at the behest of the obama administration. you look at his economic plans, they are not that well fleshed out. this is a candidate who could be doing more, you could admit, to flesh out -- david s.: i agree with that and as time goes on he will flesh it out but we will have chaos there will be a washington totally divided in conflict because for the first time the fundamental policies of the last 30 years are being challenged and i don't think there would be any smooth transition. finally, the vaunted independence of the fed will be challenged. finally, congress is going to wake up and realize that workers and retirees throughout america are being punished by this policy, and that wall street is totally out of control. david g.: how would a president do that? you have members of congress needs to befed
2:09 pm
audited and more needs to be done but you have an organization's most be running politically. how do you change what it is supposed to be doing? david s.: you have to take control, ok? there is no such thing as independence of the federal reserve. it is entirely a political institution. why in the world are they afraid to raise interest rates after 93 months -- vonnie: but -- david s.: wait a minute. when the vice chairman of the fed says we are at full employment, that is political in a profound way. vonnie: the fed chair does say there is slack and a lot of members say there is slack in the employment rate. david s.: the point is, they cannot do anything about the slack that is there. that is structural. that needs to be addressed by supply-side policies. that needs to be addressed by renewed incentives for investment. we are not getting any investment. real business investment today after depreciation is 20% lower
2:10 pm
than it was in the year 2000. we have no breadwinner jobs that have been created in the last 10 or 15 years. part-time jobs. my point is if we are going to change direction and we get a new president and it is not hillary clinton, then someone needs to tell janet yellen, you are done, you are finished, you have wrecked this and your people have wrecked this economy . you ought to resign, and we are going to put in a new slate of people that are going to run the central bank in a way that is compatible with productive capital. david g.: let's look at the other side of the coin. congress has been so handicapped by itself largely the last eight years. if the central bank is no longer doing what it has been doing and it falls upon the in administration and congress to do more, what gives you optimism that that is going to happen? david s.: well, i don't know what is going to happen if there is a trump presidency.
2:11 pm
my book is not any kind of brief for donald trump. my book is more saying that what we have been doing for 30 years has come to a dead-end. we cannot print anymore money. -- 60le dollars of debt chile dollars of debt on this economy. congress is not going to have fiscal stimulus. what we are going to have to do and basicallyh liberate capitalism to try to recover without all of this help from washington, without all the stimulus, monetary intervention, and so forth. david g.: david, great to speak to you. head ofockman, former the office of management and budget under president ronald reagan. next year it will increase spending for driverless and electric cars. we will break down that strategy. and tonight, bloomberg premieres a new six part series, "big

2:15 pm
"numbers don't lie." the red line is when alan mullally began as ceo ran through the recession to 2014. the green line is when mark fields took over and you can see the steady decline in the share price since then. fields was the dominant presence during mullally's rain and he is pursuing the 1-4 to strategy with great success. record profits from which you can see with the orange line, even as the stock is struggling. there is a dip in net income last quarter when the company missed analyst estimates. ford has been very upfront about its concerns. i mean, the big picture in here is total u.s. sales have been climbing for the past decade and may have paid that 18 million. august sales reflected that with every major automaker missing analyst estimates. but the biggest concern about those august sales were light truck sales. they have been outpacing car
2:16 pm
sales for many years now, creating is pretty big cap. you can see why cars, the white line, cars the orange line. u.s.op-selling overall vehicle fell 6% in august from a year ago. outside of lagging sales, ford is boosting spending on new businesses such as driverless cars, electric cars, while fixing weaknesses in luxury autos and emerging markets. all these moves have done little to appease investors. ford shares trail g.m. and the s&p 500 -- four in blue, gm in orange, the s&p 500 in white and 2014. in the long-term, the ceo thinks investments will pay off. he says he is "very confident ford is going to deliver." news,: and in hedge fund one of the oldest and most expensive hedge funds is changing management seats amid

losses. in response to an investor backlash that is roiling the industry. simone foxman of bloomberg news has been covering the story. let's be clear, they're cutting fees but still taking plenty off the top. smione: right, and what is a little bit humorous and the story is that the fees were as high as 2.6% and now they are between 2.2, 2.5% management fees. still charging 27.5% on performance. vonnie: that is the major number. obviously, if it is a loss, they're not taking 27% of the loss. any profits? simone: well, the typical 2.20 since theen birth of the industry. that is what people like bill gross, what they are coming out and saying these fees cannot last it is not that the caxton level fee that they are talking
2:18 pm
about. i want to call your attention to one specific line in this wrote, which is the ceo that the hedge fund industry was not created for managers to live well on management the surpluses -- management fee surpluses. his caxton breaking even now, or is there more to it? david: continuing what you are reading from there, saying it is important to organize that the entire industry has moved lower on global prices. what is he have to say about this environment and situating caxton in that? simone: caxton, if you look at the lastseveral years, few years has been up handful percent. now they are down 2.6, not an awful number, just not great. investors are looking at places like caxton and saying what am i paying for? vonnie: warren buffett describes
2:19 pm
them -- isn't pretending in feescular to caston, just and bill gross calls it a giant ripoff. of course you would like to have it in his fund that he would like to have it in his fund. is it worth it for investors to be in there for the long haul? simone: i think what investors really need to think about is why they are and hedge funds in the first place. you have seen some people come and say they are not made for the massive returns. said this was meant to manage risk and you diminish losses in periods of volatility. if that is what you are in therefore, you got to think about what you are paying for that vs. what kind of fee structure you would be willing to pay for returns a la george

vonnie: this is "bloomberg markets." i am vonnie quinn. david: i am david gura. bayer has clinched a deal to take over monsanto. the deal is valued at $66 billion, the biggest merger this year and the largest foreign takeover by a german company. if the transaction is approved, it will create the world's largest supplier of seeds and pesticides. jeff mccracken spoke to the ceo of both properties today and he joins us now. something you have to the ceo of monsanto about was the name. monsanto is an and that is politically fraught in some quarters. let's hear what hugh grant had
2:23 pm
to say. less ahe key in this is name than the products developed. we haven't actually talked about that but i would be open. bigger things to solve in this. david: bigger things to solve, the name is not paramount. jeff: it's interesting. i'm not sure i believe them, but he is basically saying he is open to the monsanto name going away, which is investing could guess been around since 1901 -- it has been around since 1901. not sure americans will cry that there is no more monsanto. not like coca-cola. the name in europe is almost seen as poisonous because of the genetic modification of seeds and what they're doing with farming and agriculture there. decidewere bayer you may in a few years that there is no reason to have the monsanto name anymore. vonnie: you also asked about who
2:24 pm
is running the company and personnel hirings and firings and so forth. let's listen to what they had to say. >> particularly on people come what is going to be important is the senior management teams of both companies sit together, jointly assess whose career is developed best in the new organization. and that we can actually help our people to drive their careers but also in the combined organization's best interest, that will be ahead of us, that will take a lot of time and diligence. vonnie: that was the bayer ceo saying "i want to lead to the company," and realizing he can't say that. jeff: yeah, i think it is most likely that he will be the person who runs the company. the best we could get out of hugh grant is "i will be here in 12 to 15 months."
2:25 pm
that is not saying much because they set the deal will not close until the end of next year. my guess is bowman will run the company and hugh grant will get tens of millions of dollars and people will shake his hand and he will move on and run some company down the road. i'm not sure they were entirely honest about where the conversation stood. vonnie: at this point monsanto has to do a deal. jeff: right, and as i said with the interview, hugh grant probably has himself to blame because he tried and failed twice to buy a company that went to china. this whole ag, chemical space is consolidating rapidly. the other question they weren't able or willing to answer is what are the regulators going to do? used to be six plays, down to 4 to will they let the deals go through? david: how big an issue is that for regulars, the fact that we have had such concentration?
2:26 pm
jeff: the big motivation is yet from companies and consumers through from companies are pushing to lower prices. what bayer and monsanto are saying, if we can work together and get the seed business and fertilizer business and the lowerag space, we will prices. there will be pushed back from farmers and we will see regulars and politicians pushing against this deal over the next 12 to 15 months. vonnie: jeff mccracken, thank you. great interviews there. coming up, we speak with the ceo of twitch. will the website become a streaming rival to netflix? this is bloomberg. ♪

two weeks of inventory declines, what's going on here? carolyn: the market is focused on where it should be. distillates and gasoline inventories, both of which were up. we are at the end of the driving season. more importantly, that distillate inventory is going up and we need a lot of distillates . it is dependent on the weather, but we need to stock up. david: where do you think we are? we have michael whitner here. he says we could see rebounding by 2017. what do you see? of in thewe are kind middle. i think the market is long-term looking at the opec meeting and wondering if they are going to get their acts together. we have seen a take up in production from all of the opec countries. when they do set price and if they do agree, it will be at high levels.

2:36 pm
netflix, for example, can't do. do you see more integration in the future? have been working closely with amazon studios, figuring out how to help promote their videos and ways to get twitch content and influencers into amazon content. dohink we will definitely more in the future but we are still very much in the experimentation phase. what has it been like working with jeff bezos? emmett: it has been amazing. i probably work most with andy at uws, but working with jeff bezos has been really, really interesting. -- i've beenen doing this for about 10 years -- there are not many people that have significantly more and deeper experience than i do, but the amazon leadership team in general -- which i have a huge amount of respect for, because
2:37 pm
it's been an amazing opportunity to be able to learn from people who are actually more experienced and maybe smarter than i am. i have that's a touch arrogant, but that hasn't been an opportunity i've had a lot in my career. i the wiz the ceo, founding a startup, it's been really cool to learn more. you said that there is a big integration between amazon and twitch coming. what can you tell us? we will this work? emmett: have been trying to for your out with amazon -- how do we create something that drives value for twitch streamers, the drives value for creators, that's who we focused on. for the whole twitch community, while being a great thing for amazon. i think we've finally figured out an amazing integration point that is going to let us do that. i look forward to the speculation on what that might be. you have been streaming
2:38 pm
the political conventions, art classes, we talked about the pilot. will you be going in any of these directions? emmett: we have discovered that even as we have done more non-gaming content, it is a social community for gamers, clearly, gamers don't just like games. they like all kinds of stuff. tohave seen great responses other content. the creative content we have been putting out there. today we are launching a that ising channel going to have live people doing programming computers, doing computer programming. i think that's going to be exciting as well. we got a great response from the community, lots of growth they're. david: what about -- emily: what about integration that is more retail focused? connecting gamers to games on amazon? emmett: i think that it's clear
2:39 pm
that the twitch audience buys a lot of games and gaming hardware. the used twitch as a place to discover what to buy. don'truggle is that we want to go build something that feels like a need to. it would be easy enough to slap a bunch of links all over twitch , but that's not really useful for the community and we don't think it would actually drive much activity in the end. we are looking for places to do that that you made it to the community. have been firm about community values and the values of the company. an issue, and in the gaming community it can be relentless. what sort of progress have you made on changing that? emily: -- emmett: it's a really hard program -- problem. any time you open a chat room to let people talk, people are
2:40 pm
talking who you would rather were not part of your community. i was really proud of the work around the dnc and rnc in particular. obviously when talking about a political convention, that's a powder keg waiting to explode in terms of toxicity and people having a negative experience. we did some things we've never done before. the one i'm most excited about is auto moderation. the first time running an automated moderation system that blocks messages using machine learning. we found that while it could not block anything -- everything, it could grab a lot of the worst stuff and enable the human moderators to have less to deal with. that was very effective there. we are looking at rolling that out widely now that we have tested it. emily: a quick question -- social eating is big in south korea, that's the new hot thing. how big do you think this phenomenon could become? meet -- social
2:41 pm
it's huge and south korea. it's one of those trends where i don't frankly understand it. me being really interested in peopleg gaming, a lot of wanting to play games on the internet, who wants to do that? i'm cautious at writing anything off. just because i don't like it doesn't mean that there isn't a group of people for whom this is exciting. i'm in the wait and see mode. i think it could be huge. ,mily: all right, emmett shear thank you so much for joining us. back to you, guys. vonnie: i've been caught -- david: thank you so much. i've been caught on camera eating, there was not widespread appeal. this is bloomberg. ♪

been focused on coop rating. i'm eager to hear how much her comments are resonated with voters in ohio. reporter bring in our for politics from d.c. , reflected in those numbers, are concerns about hillary clinton's health and the comments that she made about half of donald trump's supporters being in the basket of deplorable's? >> the poll came at a time when clinton was facing a lot of negative reaction to the comment about basket of deplorable's. she had pneumonia, it was leave sohy she had to abruptly. these polls are taken during a certain time of negative attention. troublinghis is still news for the clinton campaign because it reflects a trend. that holes have been tightening nationally.

donald trump has gained some ground lately. vonnie: it seems like a hillary clinton campaign is finally taking notice. but what can they do? clearly, there have been warning signs until now. not just this particular poll. is it something they are doing wrong, strategy wise? sahil: i don't know about that. i think that partially this is just reflecting the reality of the electorate. this is a very divided electorate. 47% to 47% with a small group of undecided voters of for grabs. this was always likely to be a close election. the tree and's that hillary clinton might be on the road to a landslide against trump increasingly don't seem to be panning out because donald trump is coalescing republican voters. the clinton campaign announced this morning that they've opened

2:48 pm
anti-trade and protecting -- anti-trade sentiment a centerpiece of his campaign. in the poll we saw that more than half the voters in ohio believe that trade deals like .afta are harmful to their jobs thinkhan anything else i it's an issue of trade, but it remains to be seen what percentage of the voters he will actually get. vonnie: sahil kapur, thank you. david: time for look at some of the biggest is this stories in the news right now. a new report from mckinsey says that jobs -- job cuts alone won't be enough to change -- save the world's biggest bank. reports of three to five global full-service banks may survive. the others, mckinsey says, will have to squash their desires to be all things to all customers so that they can eliminate fixed costs. spotify, with success in the digital music space, the ceo of the world's largest music

2:52 pm
a sensor, that is the most important sensor, mapping the road and basically telling the car where to go. in all there are a dozen of these. lasers, cameras, radar's. joining us,drivers but the idea is to get people to understand what it's like without somebody behind the wheel. so, we are in the uber. i am going to press this giant green button that says let's ride. there is a sort of weird colorful psychedelic map that is showing all the stuff going on around us. the driver is sort of hovering with his hands over the wheel, but not touching the wheel, or just barely touching the wheel. here we are, we are stopping at a stop sign. there are cars going by. you can see them on the screen. take the drivers
2:53 pm
seat and basically experience what it's like to be a safety driver. so, this is eerie. it really feels like the car has a mind of its own. it's weird, you know? you are fighting the tendency to grab the wheel. grazing thet of wheel, ready to go, but otherwise of them literally nothing. i'm just sort of sitting here, enjoying the ride. max joins us now to tell us what it was like behind the wheel of a self driving car. max, how nervous were you? max: i would say five? weirdly bland, once it starts happening. even the moment where i was in the drivers seat and the wheel started turning, it started to feel normal. how this stuff is probably closer than you think it is.
2:54 pm
david: there were sensors on the roof, elsewhere in the car. what is the system monitoring on the road? way broadly speaking, the that these things work, they take pictures with lasers, radar, actual cameras, of everything around. road signs, pedestrians, parked cars, everything, comparing what it sees with what it wants to see. where it sees a variance it says -- wait, we have to get around that parked car, stop at that sign, or whatever. the most important thing is the spinning wheel on top. that's a custom-made lidar sensor. although elon musk is not a fan, he has his own way, but most custom knees -- custom -- most companies are using this. vonnie: it was going to be more crews, more discreet. uber is pretty adamant that
2:55 pm
