be a decline in growth. at the end of 2017, what is the trigger point and by how much do u.s. stocks fall? how much are is they going to go up in front of it. the key issue is will it start to look as if the fed is falling behind the curve. you really are in a very challenging situation. the market has run up in anticipation of everything that is going to be good. favorable tax, everything is favorable. deliver you will see we -- will see inflation. >> how are you positioning your selves? are you continuing that?

toe into the italian banking sector. european banks have rallied 50% since their lows. >> we have had much of that exposure. progresses, cycle the laggards are laggards for a reason. is seens me comfortable the mechanism or framework to see capital recovery or capital buildup. and there is some conviction for the capital rebuild. it is very difficult to be optimistic. >> where else do you see value? >> euro is one of the regions we see a wide evaluation spread. the hope has been priced in. in europe it is still a little bit of uncertainty. stocksf the cyclical actually benefit from the weekly euro. an economy to
strengthen are still quite attractive from the valuation. >> you mentioned emerging market currency. it sounds dangerous to me. >> it is still a risky exposure but there is not a lot of value opportunity. it is the currencies we are seeing some opportunities. part of it because of the decline associated with their own internal government struggles. part of it is tied to the u.s. election. we do think they are bottoming out at this point. we actually have a basket that consists of everything. >> in the biggest central-bank risks. aboutwe are wrong inflation decelerating we will be wrong about the trade. >> we will put your feet to the fire on that just yet. thank you for joining us. later today and exclusive

war. cutting fees on existing asset basis. investors are sniffing out cheaper products. etf took into $236 billion this year. there is a real drive to get the cheapest product on the market. revenue growth will leg asset growth. >> are there any issuers benefiting from this dynamic? >> we are talking about issuers. of the 6 billion blackrock takes in 2.5 billion of that. funds.mpares to mutual blackrock 2.5 billion. vanguard is the second biggest issue.
12 in revenue because they are so cheap. the reason for this is if you have a liquid product that trades a lot, you have pricing power. firms have older products that don't trade a lot. -- you havehave blackrock really savvy when it comes to that. outcome for this situation in etf? a good sign for the financial industry at large. if you have money moving from hedge funds and mutual funds, and moved60 billion to etf on index funds, they are moving 80 basis points to about 12 basis points. right now the market returns come out. when that stops you are going to
see an industry hollow out. thank you for that. still ahead, we are going to hear from the 2015 nobel prize winner in economics. presidency was not a great deal, so what does he think now? take after ais jobs report shows the economy added 156,000 jobs in december, 20,000 fewer than forecast. the dow and the s&p changed. this is bloomberg.

you can't talk about the economy these days without talking about the incoming administration. you've said he were no fan of donald trump, but you were not a particular fan of hillary clinton. have a problem with what you are calling the technocrat love the road, they don't feel what the people field. >> that's right. there really is a problem of failure of representation in america and in europe. , but iffferent forums you think of scotland, where i grew up, when the trade unions first went to parliament in the early 20th century, those were trade union workers who have worked on the shop floor, the shipyards, the mind, and were arguing for their own people in parliament. you don't see much of that in the u.s. anymore. there is a sense in which middle-class ordinary people in america are not very well
represented. the presidential election is a different matter altogether. mike: in this country, we have had a tradition of very wealthy man representing the working class, franklin roosevelt, john kennedy, now you have donald trump coming to office. wealthy men. they: yes, but i think were a lot more men of the people, not so much woman of the people, in the past than there have been recently. and thethe clintons obama administration have been very technocratic administrations with the result that the politics of ordinary people somehow gets lost. mike: what do you see ahead? you have done a lot of work recently on white debt rates. there are a lot of leaks in there. -- leaps in there.
if you look county by county, where the votes for donald trump was very high, that is also reach rue -- true of other pathologies. lots of other people have found other correlations. that does not give you much of a handle on the details of what is happening. death rates isng something going seriously wrong. people are killing themselves quickly by suicide or slowly through drugs and alcohol, that is a terrible thing and it should not be happening, but it is happening in the same areas where there is a lot of dissatisfaction. mike: income and equality is a major reason for that? angus: we have been trying to track that down and that is a pretty hard story to tell. if mark zuckerberg gets really rich by inventing facebook, why does that help kill people? what harm does that do? in fact, does a lot of good.
same for the iphone. a much stronger case could be made for the fact that the people on the bottom have not had very much incoming reese for long time. ,f you look at family incomes it is quite hard to link that. we are struggling with this. there is a simple income related story or any quality related story. much as i would like it to be. design a policy to deal with the problems you are finding? angus: one place we can start is tried to stop this genie that got out of the bottle with the opioids in which these things are being widely prescribed for chronic pain. you've got a tooth out and they give you what is essentially then you a pill and get addicted and you are found dead from an overdose and
perhaps 200,000 people died. mike: going into this new administration, however it is going to turn out, what is your view of the u.s. and the global economy? you have a panel this afternoon where you will argue that we need to take a longer, more optimistic view. angus: i think it is always good to get the optimistic view in mind. if someone asked me for policy , i'm fairly optimistic about the next hundred years, that is not going to help the very much with policy. the dominant feeling his enormous uncertainty for the next five years. we have no idea how the trough administration is going to play out in washington. whatve very little idea the various elections in europe are going to bring. the eu seems to also have a very severe democratic problem and a
lot of people feel not well represented. much easier to diagnose the problem spent to say what is going to happen. can you diagnose or make a prescription for what should be done? the bit thatike these people are supposedly getting a voice. whether they will or not. think of is finding technocratic solutions to political problems, it is not a good idea and maybe if we could back away from that. go without't let you asking about brexit. you are good against the leave campaign. a leaved against campaign. the economy in britain has performed remarkably. were you wrong or were you early? angus: i think we were early. i don't think we were saying what is going to happen over the next couple months. i don't think we were speculating on the markets in the short run.
you must remember, i'm scottish. i grew up in scotland. i feel very strongly about scotland and i feel that scotland should be part of the united kingdom and i feel that the scots should be part of the europe. one of the things i hate most about brexit is it puts all that it risked. mike: how would you vote of scotland were to hold another referendum? angus: if there were to be a hard brexit, there would depend on the nature of the terms. i would imagine a world in which i would vote for scotland to separate from england, with the normal list sadness. ewan said he ian mc did not feel like being torn down the middle. i feel the exact same way. my father is english, my mother was scottish. i feel strongly about both places. i feel scotland has got a lot of its benefit and greatness and

he sees as the politicization of the u.s. intelligence community. he was tweeting against a report last night that president obama received the intelligence briefing that he will receive in just under two hours in trump tower behind me, saying that this was again another example of politicizing u.s. intel. the top transition sources i'm speaking is saying that trump is increasingly frustrated that the u.s. intel community is getting him analysis and conclusions that he feels are not able to be proven. this is the first meeting between trump and fbi director james comey since the election. obviously, james comey played a crucial role in the u.s. election with his comments regarding hillary clinton. a lot happening here today. i do expect criticism coming from trump to continue regarding what he feels is an unfair politicization of the u.s. intel community. he wants thely,
intelligence community on his will have to work closely with the intelligence community. does that mean after the meeting he will essentially have to try to put on some united front? kevin: will have to work closely with the intelligence community. yesterday on capitol hill, we heard from james clapper that there would be a prescription prescribed, if you will, in this intelligence briefing for why russia has meddled in the u.s. election. whether or not trump agrees with that conclusion remains to be seen. he is facing increasing pressure from within his own party, most notably senator john mccain to come out against russia and take a stronger position against russia. clearly, senator mccain elevating his stature in being a thorn in the side of the incoming president when he takes office within his own party. vonnie: i think we actually have some sound from that portion of the hearing, if we can play it?
let's have a listen. you are going to be challenged tomorrow by the president-elect. are you ok with being challenged? >> absolutely. senator mccain: do you welcome it? >> we do. >> do you think it is appropriate? >> we do. >> are you ready for the task? >> i think so. vonnie: what will klapper and his ilk say to trump? going tothink they are lay out the case. early reports suggest that they feel russia was trying to gain influence in the western hemisphere, not only in the u.s., but also across europe. they are increasing their presence in the states. i would also raise the issue and suggest that president-elect trump has a choice to make about whether or not to keep director call me as the head of the fbi. he said he has not -- he has not said whether he will call for
the resignation of james comey or have him finish out his term. there are key staffing implications and the implications this has for staffing in terms of the u.s. intel community are quite large. clearly, the basis of potentially whether or not they are going to remain on staff in the incoming trump administration, we could be witnessing here behind me in just under a couple of hours. vonnie: thanks so much, kevin come outside trump tower. we are just getting headlines from the transition spokesman thatspicer, including one says mike pompeo, including others, will attend the intel briefing. --ll ahead, with president-elect's trump's twitter campaign against automakers. ♪
