he is going to gear his economics towards something that promotes a stronger usd. if he is bringing more jobs back from taiwan, asia, wherever they have been offshore, that will kick up labor costs in the u.s. it will have to be controlled. it all points to a stronger greenback. anna: what does the continuity candidate look like for the dollar? what does 2017 look like if hillary clinton wins? --emy: the monticello monetary policy will not change that much. keeping yellen in the fed, which trump hasn't signaled that he wants to do. keeps that argument as it is. she is also in favor of more fiscal spending as well. that will hopefully boost inflation through the u.s. economy, lead to stronger usd. on the night, we see little bit think, a movie i

for those of us outside germany, tell us the significance of the risk that we see between the cdu and the csu right now. >> good morning to you. on the face of it, it is a dispute over a certain policy element. wantavarian conservatives the chancellor to impose a ceiling on refugees at 200,000. the chancellor refuses because if she would accept it, it means she would have to admit that her policy was wrong. the bavarians want to force her to say that she was wrong and she resists. rift over whos a is more conservative. who is covering the right side of the political spectrum better? is bavarians believe merkel too soft. she has moved too much to the middle and allowed french parties to arise with this. that merkel is not attending
2:37 am
is overshadowing any discourse that will take place over there. talk us through what risk there is that there could be a real breakaway that ultimately .eakens the position >> both parties know, the german voter hates nothing more than parties quarreling within each other. a have been avoiding a showdown on the issue, which would have been unavoidable if merkel had attended. if she had been there, the csu leadership would have been forced to restate it position and she would've been forced to restate hers. by her not coming, not being invited, they simply avoid that situation while the underlying dispute is still there. some of theakes tension out of the situation, the fact that merkel will not attend. does that mean that union lives to fight another day? from what you say, you think so.
2:38 am
are there alternatives to merkel or is she the only candidate in town from the right of politics? >> in her own party, she is the only candidate. she is the chancellor. -- best chance in her own party to lead her party to another victory. and the bavarian democrats know that, but they are looking at their own elections in 2018, where the bavarian conservatives believe they always need an absolute majority of the vote in their own states in order to have that leverage on the national and even european level that they now enjoy. talk us through the timeline. what happens after this article print's. -- party conference? the christian democratic union, the sister party, the major conservative party in germany would have its own party convention in december.
2:39 am
it is still not clear whether it will be announced at that party congress in december that she will run again. she may want to postpone this until the spring of next year when the campaign really gets going. but because that will force all insider -- inside her own party and the sister party in bavaria, to close ranks behind her. if she announces early, that is an open invitation to everyone who wants to criticize that decision to come out and raise question marks about would it not be wiser to have another candidate. she will try to avoid that debate in order to control the critics in her own party. anna: do you think when we finally get to the german about howm a speaking german politics and the brexit conversation linkup, do you think the u.k. x assumes -- assumes that merkel will hook
2:40 am
up. will it be consistent with the german policy in the future we have developed for brexit? nothing unexpected happens, which could happen. there are a lot of risks in the air over europe. crisis, the eurozone the turkey eu refugee deal, that is a temporary thing. think of the ukraine war. there could be things the , andng politics in europe germany in particular. if no disruption happens, she looks like a pretty certain winner. it also looks like the present coalition, the social democratic, christian democratic, left right coalition will continue to govern. thebrexit terms, that means misunderstanding of the german position in london will continue. in london, people still believe germany is the best ally a u.k. can find on getting a great deal on brexit.
2:41 am
which is not the case. will continue to be the symbol of this. also, the misreading of german politics will continue to shake things in london, as well. anna: thank you very much for joining us. it has been a volatile week for emerging market currencies. the egyptian pound slumps against the u.s. dollar. a different story for the south african rand, gained against the greens back -- greenback. how the president could of been influenced by the family. mix -- mexican peso gained some ground. the chief us, is economy at world first u.k..

2:43 am
when we have seen other currencies float and leave their pegs, go off into the great unknown, even by those standards us was a big fall for the egyptian pound, wasn't it? some lessons to be learned in how they handle this. jeremy: some traders hit the wrong price and tried selling -- to stop selling at the same time. 45% over therly course of the day? it shows just how long it has been badly paid within the country and obviously, sucking in that they need a foreign currency. eustis: is this going to unlock appetite for foreign investors? is that something that you can play now? jeremy: you would have to see egypt is something people are going to start talking about increasingly. there are huge amount of in

country situations that you don't with, but the fact that it is 45% cheaper is going to lead people to try and pick up some bargains. anna: interesting story about lessons we learned from losing the peg over in egypt. the advice seemed to be, don't do what nigeria did. don't fiddle around with it. markettly, the black it can beooms and costly to defend your currencies, the russians have found. as painful as it is, just leave it alone. is that your experience? jeremy: it is what we want in this kind of policy, a clear, decisive action and if egyptian authorities have been bravery to say in the grand seamer -- scheme of things, this is where we wanted it to be. that will engender some

2:51 am
a new line of cameras as well as the drone cameras were caused problems, which meant they couldn't reach demand for the fourth quarter. fitbit had a similar problem. they said production led to poor earnings. both of these young companies are using that as a crutch to cover up the bigger problem. that investors are all asking, is there enough demand for these novelty items? is there really a huge total, addressable market here? with wearable devices. it seems a lot of customers are not renewing and upgrading them. it is hard to get new people to join the family. similarly, a lot of people don't feel the need to have an additional camera on top of their smart phone. investors are questioning the entire business model. however, gopro is still hopeful they can reach profitability in 2017.

2:53 am
could i ask you where you see consolidation making sense for german banks? first of all, thank you for having me. what i said today and when i am happy to repeat is that the solvency and liquidity of the german banking sector is actually, in no doubt whatsoever , the german banking system is stable. at the same time, you have to admit that the profitability of the german banking sector is rather low in a european comparison and a international comparison. that is partly due to the fact that the german banking sector is very competitive and is having a large number of banks competing with each other. it is not my job to recommend what the right level of competition should be and what is the right level of -- should be, but clearly, given that we
2:54 am
have more cost to regulation and there is a need for investment in digitizing, that we do have a low interest environment. all of these challenges, all banks are thinking of consolidation. but it is not for me to make recommendations of who should consolidate and when. eustis: you have said a low interest rate environment, we are gearing up for possible changes in policy from the ecb. where do you stand on the front? what is the bank doing right and what to do better? you know, with regard to our monetary policy stance, i have a very clear opinion. europe is at the forefront of our thinking. clearly, the consumer inflation rate is not where we have it in
2:55 am
our mandate. .t has nothing since early 2013 according to projections, it highstay below our stability target for some time. having said that, i mean and believe that the low interest rate environment is appropriate at the time. how the inflation rate actually develops and once we see that, and depending on that, we have to go on. --ht now, in the recent present economic environment with moderate growth, i think the interest rate environment we are in, which has been set by the ecb, is appropriate. anna: is there a case for increasing support from the ecb or the euro zone economy in december? of thet a member governing council of the ecb, so
2:56 am
i'm not part of that decision. we are not in december yet, you have to wait and look at the data. everybody has heard for making that decision. we have seen tremendous volatility in global markets ahead of the u.s. election. they sway, what measures are you taking to mitigate that volatility? it is a good question. i am seeing what you are seeing. i am having is that it is not unusual to have volatility ahead of tight presidential elections. on the other hand, what we have seen in the past and what is probably also true of the future is that the american system of checks and balances in politics -- the president, congress, and senate have worked in the past,
2:57 am
mitigating volatility and i think that will hold true once november it has passed. you are in charge of risk control at the bundesbank, are there measures you will have to to in place around next week make sure volatility doesn't catch you out? think there is some exaggeration in the question the function not of central banks to avoid volatility. only in the case of excess volatility. this volatility, you cannot compare with volatility we had after the brexit. this is something i'm not worried about. eustis: uncertainty back home in your country, germany, where anxiety still a lot of
2:58 am
around what is going to happen with the future of chancellor merkel. some internal rift between parties. if she doesn't run again, would you consider that a risk event? andreas: anxiety that goes far beyond a monetary policy matter of mine, so i would really like to not comment on your question. is a highly hypothetical question, in addition. anna: we will leave the politics there. if we go back to the monetary policy environment, we were talking about what is right for the ecb to do and you say the policy tightness is appropriate right now. if ecb were to move policy forward in december, what is the best course of action if policy were to change it all in december? andreas: first of all, december is december and we are early in november. the most important thing is to
2:59 am
stay calm and to concentrate on the data and not jumps to conclusions ahead of time. there is a reason this is called the december meeting. it is not for me to say what will happen in the governing house in december. anxiety is never good advice. anna: you are speaking to us taking place. they focus on chinese investments at germany. what appetite do you sense from chinese companies to invest in germany. standpoint, wel have seen some pushback in germany of chinese money. is that putting investors off? andreas: i am not sure. all i can say is, from a german germany'se, china is

3:07 am
would be slightly higher than september is number of 100 60,000 jobs and the third month of higher gains in a row. bloomberg intelligence predicts a slightly higher number than that. of 190,000. they expect a rebound in government and health care jobs. report will have a huge bearing on the december fed meeting. if there is more growth shown, there will be more reason to hike. is minimum number to hike one of 2000 jobs. that seems achievable barring any black swan event. is its highest since early june. in other data points to look out for from october, average hourly earnings may have picked up about one third of a percent, against a 0.2% rise in september. that is just shy of the postrecession high of 2.7%. as for the work we, that is

projected to stay the same at 34.4 hours. the level it has been at since the second quarter. the unemployment rate is forecast to fall to 4.9%. it has been sticking around 5% in recent months which could mean the economy is close to full employment. the october jobs report comes out friday at 8:30 a.m. wall street time. payrolls, payrolls, payrolls. toldhile, paul krugman has bloomberg the fed should not raise rates this year or next. he thinks the u.s. central bank is determined to act as if but things areal anything but. he has this to say about the economic strategy of donald trump. >> i do not think there is any trumpomics. if you look at the concrete policy proposal, they are
3:09 am
standard republican issue stuff. on rich- slash taxes people. anna: there is a lot of discussion about u.s. politics. simon, great as always to see you. let us deal with the subject of the nonfarm payroll. let us look at this charge. nonfarm payrolls and the twitter whisper. we have a lot of whisper numbers. 175,000 seems to be the official consensus. what number does that have to be? be weak was that have to to throw out the expectation of a fred rate hike in december? simon: i think it would have to be in negative territory. looking at the most recent minutes from the fmoc. they describe some data is what they need to see between now and december.
3:10 am
that acts as an insurance policy for the rogue bit of data described earlier by a black -- as a black swan data. some rogue data. fmoc does not want to be in position of is providing for the market and as a result of one data point, losing control of expectations. they have expectations where they want for a december rate hike. yousef: expectations of side for a minute, paul also said that the fed should not hike this year. or even next year. is that something you subscribe to? right givennk he is where every other central bank is in the world, there is no obligation on the federal reserve to hike. they have put themselves in position to want to hike and at this point, you are looking at
3:11 am
credibility rather than necessity to push the fmoc into moving. what paul krugman is talking about is that we have a global problem here that is not consistent with any central bank moving interest rates higher. until you sell that problem, then why should central banks .ove at all what are your expectations regarding inflation? others are saying that there is inflation on the horizon. and we need to get ahead of that. simon: not in the environment where we are having structurally deflationary global economy. and the whole thing changes.
3:12 am
associatede risks with leading the economy run hot on inflation? very little compared to snuffing it out too quickly and being derailed later by economic events. think the global environment lends itself to being able to be brave with global overshooting. yousef: and we have the political environment. how could the u.s. election weeigh on fed policy? ; let us take the -- simon: let us take the donald trump victory. he does not have an economic track record to fall back on. to see whether he would be true to his word. in a donald trump victory, the dollar declines. i think the dollar will decline putting pressure on inflation a little bit.
3:13 am
clinton is business as usual and you push on towards a december rate type. -- a december rate hike. trump, he has been quite vocal about clipping the wings of the federal reserve and the fmoc. in the unlikely category given all of the other stuff he has spoken about and where his principal attention will be in this immediate priorities to deliver to some of his base if elected. entails understand what the presidency. will he get involved in the technocratic element in terms of changing the relationship between the u.s. government and the federal reserve? i don't think so. anna: we are watching governments reacting to the poll tightening in the u.s., the markets unknown. we have a chart here.
3:14 am
implied probability of a clinton win. that is coming down by various measures. perspective, we ad an interesting chat with representative from the deutsche bank, and he is a bit nervous about a donald trump victory in terms of the checks and balances that keep u.s. policy from swinging in one direction or another. from an economic perspective, do you see to virgins? -- do you see economic divergence? simon: i think he said enough to rattle markets from the perspective of uncertainty on domestic policy but it has much greater implications in terms of the crucial access of the u.s. and asia, particularly china. what some of the rhetoric he has spoken about will do for trade relationships and that will have

3:21 am
11 judges will have to decide in early december. should they decide to uphold yesterday's ruling, i do believe an election is slightly more likely because theresa may needs the legitimacy of another election and the feeling that are behind her running on a coherent brexit strategy. you put that at about a 20% chance? simon, at what chance do you put that? simon: fairly slim. it has grown since yesterday. there iss spoke about, still a series of events to run through. what is more interesting is that election or no election, we will have that debate in parliament which is something that government is desperate to avoid because it does not want to reveal the fact that there are different views even among those supporting brexit.
3:22 am
having that playing out in open in parliament will be difficult. envision a us scenario where a supreme court mandates a role for parliament. what would that look like? textes: it depends on the and the subsequent interpretation on what the vote should be. if it would be a yes, no vote, that would be easy to get through because mps do not want to contradict the vote of the people. there could be a case where you have to go through complex legislation before the approval of article 50. if that happens, it will take quite long and will be difficult for the government to meet its deadlines. timing will be difficult. the content saying, will also be difficult because each mp interested in the relationship with the eu will try to get its -- their own amendments in. a poll conducted by
3:23 am
external academics said that 52% of the population voted for brexit in the popular vote. if you look at a breakdown from constituencies, support for brexit is breaker than that 52%. explaining perhaps that if we saw the vote in parliament, that international investors should not assume that mps who previously wanted to remain continue to do so. after all, there is no evidence that there is a big regret for brexit. i think most people who voted for brexit want to see it happen. and also the brexit camp still has the most enthusiastic campaign and individuals. it isly do not think unlikely that the parliament will turn this down. i think the more interesting
3:24 am
scenario is that if legislation is involved and it ties the governments hands -- the government's hance. ana: you are voting on negotiating position. what a brexit would end up look like is very much up to the other side. as parliamentarians will get their say on what the u.k. is aiming for, that is not the same as voting on the terms of an agreed brexit in the future. article 50n that starts the clock for two years and at the end of two years if you follow the rules set out in the lisbon treaty, you have to leave the european union. what conditions will parliamentarians look to put into the vote in terms of their own scrutiny of what deal they will have at the end of two years. you may say it is immaterial. learned in the last decade of european union politics and eurozone politics

that the rules can change if the circumstances change. i think if you got to a situation where the vast majority of parliamentarians are not happy with the deal coming you may start to see some regret for brexit. yousef: life for the boe has not been easy to start with. how will it navigate all of this? boe heard from the yesterday and the inflation reports. what was striking was how they increased 2017 growth and they expected inflation to hit at the back of next year. what that means for the boe is -- raising interest rates. pressure is off the other side for cutting inflation rates. the boe is sitting tight looking at the economic data. and they are set to be there for some time. described themok
