1:08 am
merkel positioned herself as a force for stability in what she called exceptionally difficult and uncertain times. she said it was absurd to imagine that she alone could mend the world's ills. >> everything depends on me, especially after the elections in the u.s. back the same time, i find it very much grotesque and almost bizarre. no person come even with the biggest experience, tcan turn things in germany, europe, and the world to good. manus: meanwhile, francois hollande has become a new front runner in the 2017 election. he vaulted from third place to win the first round of the republican primaries with the most free market platform amongst the seven candidates. i have seen them all reference brexit. he has outlined his vision for a reformed europe. >> the brexit deal to europe
1:09 am
might be a deadly coup if we don't react. i was not surprised by that vote of rejection, because when we forget nations, nations always revenge themselves. the dream of federal europe, in which i never believed, is finished. the european communitarian system, as it is today, has had its day. we need a more political europe, a more efficient europe, a europe more focused on strategic prioriti that will give back everything else to state authorities. manus: caroline has more for us from paris. manage this quite spectacular comeback? musketeers. and i you have the brexit teer. >> absolutely. assistantstory of the becoming the new chief.
1:10 am
sarkozy called him his assistant and now it looks like he has just alienated his former boss. for months and months, we saw francois fillon being the favorite. a lot has changed in the last two weeks. you had the election of donald trump in the u.s., the candidacy, and fillon dominated the last debate on television last week. so, this is how we saw this impressive comeback of francois fillon. last night, nicolas sarkozy got two votes from his former prime minister. >> i have high regards for j upe, but the political choices of francois hollande are closer to mine. voters neverhe
1:11 am
to take the road of extremism. france deserves so much better. reporter: as we have seen with brexit, and the election of donald trump, you can also go wrong. this is happening again in france. manus: caroline, with the dollar r-trump we did not get much run out. what does the program of francois fillon offer? in favor of free markets and policies. on the diplomacy front, he is pro-russian. he is welcome to an alliance with russia and iran to defeat the islamic state. he calls this the shock therapy of france. he wants to extend the 35 hour and just public
1:12 am
spending by more than 100 billion euros, including eliminating many private sector jobs. he also wants to extend the retirement age to 65 and he wants to create 40 billion euros of tax cuts for companies. so, very pro-market policies that we are seeing here. jupe says he will continue the illon getsf the vote, it might be much harder now for him. thank you very much. let's talk about the european fortical theme with the cio international fixed income for jpmorgan asset-management. i hacvve pulled up a chart here. this is after the u.s. election. we saw a jump in french 10 year yields after a comparable german debt.
1:13 am
many are looking to europe now and all the politics on the agenda in the year ahead, working out where the next leads.ion that juppe wasr a favored up until only a few weeks ago. so, the message has been, expect the unexpected. we have just seen that in france. and as we look forward, another couple of flashpoints. we have the italian referendum on december 4 and on the same day, the austrian presidential election. ick, a very good morning to you from dubai. i have pulled up an additional sovereign yield, the italian butd, and that is rising, it looks as if the days of the bond vigilante, they are not getting as much bang for their
1:14 am
buck. the euros is under pressure. the look at the eu -- do you look at the euro as having this risk at the moment? itwhen we look at the euros, is less about europe and much more about trump and the u.s. what we liking to see is divergent central banks. agenda and gross agenda there puts the fed a much more assertive phase, and the e cb are very likely to be accommodative still. so, you will see an increasingly weaker euros, versus a much stronger dollar. manus: where does this leave the ecb, in more detail? you might be more aggressive interest rate hikes in the u.s. is this going to derail the plans of the u.s. going forward? >> i think when you listen to the ecb speakers, they are crystal clear. we look at one thing, inflation.
1:15 am
and when you look at core inflation in the eurozone, it is 0.8%. it is way beneath target. so, they are pretty clear that on march 2017 they will be extending quantitative easing. t a, it might be a at slightly slower rate. anna: what is a little talk of tapering from the ecb? > >> remember, when the ecb started qe, they actually started at 60. they were from 60 to 80. maybe they go back to 60. the ultimately, thank you's policy very loose. -- but ultimately, that keeps policy very loose. manus: i wonder, when you look at all the market moves, there is something inside me that says, get ready for some kind of policy backlash at a much bigger level because these markets are moving, is currency markets are
1:16 am
moving aggressively. it i am assuming it could be a g-20 response. g-20ere may very well be a response, but the key is the effectiveness of those responses at times. so, market moves are likely to continue. let's face it. the market in the eye of the storm i know is the bond market. and you look at 10 year treasuries zoomed all the way up to 2.75. it is likely that bonds is still take the string if we go in much more expansionary policy from the u.s. is a 10 year treasury at the right yield level? probably not. anna: we will talk more about this in just a moment. no, thank you very much for your thoughts so far. here is what i like for your week ahead. maria draghi presents the ecb's
