8:23 pm
policies of the u.s. ministration are pro-growth. i am struggling with the contrast between upward looking economic policies along with policies that counter the benefits of diversity. this is difficult because clients are quite concerned and if it went on to much longer where u.s. granted an approved visas were rejected at the border, investors would run for cover and this would not mean short-term, modest weakness in equity markets, this would mean a plunge in equity markets. it is important that we stand back and look at this and listen to some of our leaders. mr. blake find, the head of goldman sachs, made a good point. i wish jpmorgan and mr. diamond should have followed suit and i think the opinion on wall street should be clearer. is what bill the u.s.

visa plan, that is the approval or disapproval of the set applications, investors would understand that. approveding a visa as and then knocking people back to immigration is unacceptable. investment markets are terrified inand i don't think the ministration gets that. i'm looking closely at the supreme court appointment because some of the people being considered for the supreme court appointment have policies that are really quite mad and we have to make sure the legislative blanche -- legislative branch and the judicial branch are there to do their job. in the u.s. system, the president has the right to you executive orders and he is using this right in week one to the extent we have never seen. rashaad: doesn't this make you and your client look away from at some of theok emerging markets or at japan with their rate decision this week?

if so, what do you look at in particular? markets, weemerging recognize and emphasize to our clients, the emerging markets are traditionally correlated with commodities as many of them produce commodities. the environment we are in now should be a positive for emerging-market. investors have bought the u.s. dollar, therefore hurting emerging markets, that i would say in two or three years time, that colby a good call and emerging markets will have rallied. likewise, commodity producers like australia, canada, south africa, you'd expected this environment to be good for them. we will not get all with infrastructure spending into legislation is passed and the president will not get legislation passed if this carry investors willd freeze investments on the united states until they are more confident. rashaad: john, thank you.

uncertainty. it boosted the dollar and bond yields in the united states weekend the yen, and now some of the latest, the trade deal, complained the dollar being too strong and the one that is reverberating globally is immigration control, so much concerned about that. what does that mean for the dollar-yen? >> there is a clear contradiction in president trump's politics. fiscal easing is massively positive for the dollar, on the other hand they are already saying the dollar is too strong, which i disagree. the only solution at the moment is if the dollar actually gets too strong, then it might sound less contradictory and that is the dollar-yen will shoot up first into the spring. >> will that help boost exports?
8:48 pm
is that a good move for dollar-you? -yen?lar >> at 130 it will make import prices too expensive for the japanese economy, but the bigger concern is currency diplomacy. speaking of currency diplomacy, prime minister abe is going to be meeting seen with the donald trump. surely they are talking about hammering out a bilateral trade deal, is it going to be a contentious issue, how japan manages its current when the president of the united states is already complaining about the yen potentially being too weak and the dollar too strong? >> i think any potential deal proposed by donald and the administration is likely to have intention to prevent dollar from strengthening or even reasoning
8:49 pm
-- strengthening the dollar. it support base is political conservatives and if the trump suchistration is on currency policy, we will face to tariffs. vacancies to easily, he will abe canblems in -- if easily, heedes too will have a problem domestically and the other risk is the breakup in u.s. and japanese security alliance. >> what you see for equities if you look at the bank of japan holding tight. you see the fed singling -- signaling something at their meeting. isdiverging monetary policy
8:50 pm
straightforwardly positive for the dollar-yen and that means higher equity price in japan. if the dollar-yen overshoots on diverging market policy, it may be knocked off for the u.s. administration. >> thank you for joining us today on bloomberg television. he is chief japan currency strategy -- strategist at bank of america merrill lynch. more guests coming up live on bloomberg television at tokyo. rashaad: thank you very much. coming up next, summers slams trump. treasury secretary has some harsh words for the white house. we'll cut you would be our next. ♪

actions like the ones that we saw and that provocations to the world are not going to be responded to and i'm not sure that is a good bet either. that is not a judgment that could be a basis for near-term investing. error isink is a clear to confuse a several months of strong markets with strong fundamentals. the period postelection when markets did best in the 20th century was the time between herbert hoover's election and his inauguration. as a presidency, that was the biggest economic disaster that we had. i don't know what is going to happen next in markets, but no one should be serene is because markets are behaving well.
8:55 pm
rashaad: do you think price is setting the narrative? >> different people are different to narratives. for many, what is setting the narrative is frankly fear about what their country might become. this might all get cleaned up, always administrations have growing pains. i think we are going to know a lot more a week from now when we see whether the administration recognizes that this was chaotic, costly, and counterproductive or whether they decide to double down on this kind of thing and continue to make policy in this way.
