7:06 pm
saying it is unfair to u.s. workers in the economy. mr. trump: the reality is, that withdrawing is in america's economic interest and will not matter much to the climate. the united states under the trump administration will continue to be the cleanest and most environmentally friendly country on earth. betty: let's get straight to washington to our white house reporter. tell us a little more about the mood during that conference and the immediate reaction. reporter: the immediate reaction was pretty swiftly negative, despite trump having worked so hard on this appeal of being a pro-business president,
7:07 pm
surrounding himself with ceos, many of the ceos he has brought into the white house he has used to bolster his pro-business agenda came out very strongly against this. from banking to to tech, they have been encouraging the president to stay in. they say they disagree with it. yvonne: we did hear from the president that he was willing to renegotiate, which is not a surprise. he is of course a dealmaker. is not an endpoint but a starting point. does he have that political leverage now to get these 190 countries to the table to get a better deal? shannon: no, he does not. several countries came out and said, we are not coming back to the negotiating table after years spent negotiating with the u.s., getting 190 countries to sign on, now the u.s. wants to start from scratch.
7:08 pm
the other major countries are not necessarily going to go along with this. in order to negotiate with you have to have someone to negotiate against. right now, no one is coming to the table. the briefedials reporters said of course, we are the united states, we are such a big player, of course they will come talk to us. but i would not be so sure. i do not see us as a credible partner and do not want to waste more time negotiating for the u.s. for us to just change her position or pull out of the agreement at the last point. yvonne: thank you. breaking news, bob iger's, the disney ceo, saying he has resigned from the council over this paris pact exit, echoing what we heard from tesla's elon musk when he tweeted out that now that the u.s. is out of the paris accord, he is also "departing presidential council. climate change is real. leaving it is not good for
7:09 pm
america." i want to bring in a professor of economics from the university of southern california. he joins us live from a. i want to get your reaction to this. how critical was it to have the u.s. in this field? does it still have influence now? >> i think it does. this was not unexpected. president trump has been consistent here. there is oh is a silver lining. china, it is like a chance to step up and show international leadership. you mentioned china stepping up to, some think it is a victory for the mainland. when we take a look at this and see china investing more than $300 billion or pledging to spend that much in terms of manufacturing, investment to research and development by the end of the decade, how does it china play a wider -- leadership
7:10 pm
role now? are they prepared to do so? matthew: that is a great question. in china today, there are a still number of coal miners. they are very dependent on coal to generate power and winter heat. iny make huge investments solar panels, electric vehicles, wind turbines. they anticipate large domestic market and national export markets. even if the u.s. were to purchase none of these future electric vehicles, solar panels, or wind turbines, china will still make money exporting to the rest of the world. while the u.s. has been a key player in the production of greenhouse gas emissions and in getting past international deals, a silver lining is that the rest of the world may step up. the u.s. will continue to be a superpower, but other great nations may compete with the
7:11 pm
u.s. on who can be greenest here. yvonne: critics say there is a view in china that decar bonization can hurt economic growth. a long way toe go. i have a chart that shows china admissions per capita is still much lower than you see in the u.s.. when it comes to the net values in the bottom half, china supersedes the u.s. in many ways, as well. do you think about the slow burn in the economy in china now means it is likely to meet its 2030 paris target? what happened afterwards? is it a plateau, or could we see a sustained decline afterwards? matthew: china said an interesting goal for itself at the paris meetings. it wanted to be judged on its
7:12 pm
carbon intensity. greenhouseeconomys gas emissions divided by its gnp level. it could meet the target even if the greenhouse emissions do not decline, if its economy grows fast enough. we can celebrate some algebra. unlike the united states, china set this intensity metric. i believe china can enjoy the win-win of economic growth and decarbonization as their economy transitions slightly away from manufacturing. a little bit like san francisco and other of america's great cities. i think the future of the chinese economy is human capital, the millions of educated people in china's coastal cities, crating their and high-tech companies, rather than heavy steel. this is part of my optimism of china's decarbonization.
7:13 pm
it will transform their economy. bety: we know china seems to able to win out of this. what about the u.s.? who wins in the u.s.? matthew: i think it helps california. california will continue with jerry brown and arnold schwarzenegger's ab32. i argue that california is the green guinea pig. you will see the u.s. return to the international table. states like west virginia will be pro-coal, but california will continue to be the center of the green economy. companies like tesla will continue to push despite president trump's actions today. betty: thank you so much, professor of economics at the university of southern california. let's get some more market and stock reactions to this. ramy inocencio has more on how the u.s. markets reacted. ramy: it is not just what

7:19 pm
out ourselves. >> i think that this decision were dishonest, destructive, and entirely inconsistent. and i think the american business community has already started to speak and spoke out before the speech requesting the president not withdraw from paris. yvonne: some of the voices in reaction to that paris accord, the u.s. dropping out of it. this is "daybreak asia," i am yvonne man in hong kong. betty: and i am betty liu in new york. let's get reaction. i have someone who is no stranger to the climate change debate and the impact on companies. he is john hoffmeister. u.s.,ps run shell in the he works closely with the energy industry. he is joining us on the phone from i believe louisiana, the former president of shell in the u.s.. you were no fan of this paris
7:20 pm
agreement. are you celebrating that the u.s. has withdrawn from it? john: i am actually quite saddened that we are where we are today. but here is my point of view. i spoke out against the agreement before it was reached out ahead of was his schemes. he did not have the political support to reach a conclusion on this agreement. he ignored the legislature of the united states. he basically ignored any information coming from anyone who did not agree with them. he committed the country to a voluntary agreement that has no enforcement. and i think it was premature for us to get into such an agreement. betty: but is the answer to that to say, no, i am not going to be a part of this -- is that the answer? no.: no, we have to take on new
7:21 pm
leadership as a nation and demonstrate to the world that we can do more, we can do better, we can make progress faster, because we are not part of this agreement unless and until we do do renegotiated. that door was left open, at least by the united states. but i do not think trump is a man to do it. he is black and white on these negotiating issues. one president does not make the country it -- what it is or what it will be. obama failed to take into account the political complexities of it. i think trump is putting it way too simplistically. somewhere we will need to find a president that can lead us on a pathway that both leads the nation and can perhaps provide leadership to the world, as well. i think china did a good job of looking out for china in the negotiations of this agreement. i do not think the u.s. did a
7:22 pm
good job of looking out for the u.s. betty: what you're saying is theoretical right now because is not ans, obama office anymore, we have trump in office. you say he is not the man to do it. i am sorry, he is a man in the next four years. so, we have to live with that. what is the consequence here? john: right, we have lost a decade. i would put it down to, we have lost a decade. it is not the end of the world. the u.s. will continue to dec arbonize over this decade, even with trump as president. thee are the stakes that politicians, corporate america, and the people want to proceed. we will continue the process of decarbonization. ands not a return to coal fossil fuel only. it will be a mixed energy package for the united states. as i have talked and written, we need all the forms of energy to
7:23 pm
support our economy broadly. the we have lost is position that obama tried to put the u.s. in. but the u.s. was not ready. we had too many political forces. remember, china is not a democracy. they can decide unilaterally with no democratic debate what is in their best interests. the u.s. has to proceed democratically. obama did not proceed democratically because he other major input of the legislative branch of the u.s. government. betty: i want to get back before i let you go to this idea that president trump, he says he is open for renegotiation. do you believe him on that, or are you saying you do not believe him? john: i do not think the rest of the world wants to deal with trump on this issue. i think they have written him off, at least the current leadership. of germanyership
7:24 pm
changes, france, etc., remember, politics is a dynamic process. what is today will not be tomorrow. we can hope for change. but i do not think trump himself will be directly involved in it, not when he has an epa secretary who said what he said today about how trump has saved the nation from this agreement. the agreement was not a good agreement, but it was an agreement. it makes me sad we could not proceed down this path. but, trump did warn everybody and the american people elected him, and he followed through on what he promised. so nobody should be surprised about that, which i have heard others seek -- speakers say. but it is sad nonetheless. we have lost our reputation and image, at least for now, and world leadership. betty: thank you so much for joining us. the citizens for affordable energy founder and ceo. we will be back with much more.

7:46 pm
the fed. the fed is looking at the unemployment rate. maybe the natural rate of unemployment is lower. maybe we will see at the june meeting in the summer of economic projections is them revising it further down because we're not seeing much wage pressure and we see lower levels of unemployment rates. the relationship between unemployment and wages are not broken, but bent. it could be somewhat lower. watch for the summer of economic projections. >> is the fed focusing on the work force participation rate as they should be? i know the unemployment rates are a clear metric. why not more talk about the workforce? >> one of the fed governors spoke about it just recently.
7:47 pm
ratenk the participation is stabilizing. and that is what the fed is happy about. the structural trend in participation still has a downside. the good news, it is stabilizing. i think for the fed what really market,is the labor which is reflected in part-time workers. they want to work full-time. this is where most of the slack is coming from. not those people who are out of the labor force. you heard the fed speak before june, different than march. we saw a unified core from all the fed governors and presidents. it raised expectations 2000%. now we are hearing from lael b james bullard say

they're worried about inflation. and then someone else said there could be for rate hikes this year. what is going on? >> the fed is doing a better job since the taper tantrum of a years ago telegraphing what they are thinking as opposed to not thinking about art talking about in private. all the fed presidents are sharing their views on social media. that is sending mixed signals to the marketplace. if rates are going up, it is not reflected in the treasury curbs , theye what is happening are continuing to invest in treasuries. our view is that we will see perhaps one less rate-we would've thought at the beginning of the year. we will see a couple rate hikes through out the year. betty: i want to talk about ceo or business sentiment. business confidence is high and rising. reflecteden that somewhat in the stock market, the animal spirits.

7:50 pm
the breath of that positive year-over-year growth across sectors -- even if you pull energy out, the fact is that almost every energy -- all eyes are on the second quarter. in's see how they perform the second quarter. if that continues, you will see dollars rotate toward equities. they are living up to those multiples. i am curious, how come all this chaos we have been hearing about in washington, why hasn't that affected the job market or economy? i 100% agree that sentiment could be affected by this news. but that does not necessarily mean it will result in fluctuations. i think growth will continue to be stable, around 2% this year, driven by consumers.
7:51 pm
consumers are spending and they will continue to spend, despite the blip we saw in the first quarter of the year. betty: they are spending less, though. >> they were spending less in the first quarter. we will see a rebound in the second quarter. net growth is stable. we will see growth in income growth this year, based on wage pressures. we are seeing some wage pressures reflected in the latest beige book we saw this week. what is interesting, consumers's balance sheets are increasing. next week we will get the data. it will probably indicate the net worth of consumers is growing faster than a was a couple quarters ago. based on higher home prices. >> and fica scores, we saw those earlier this week.
7:52 pm
it is showing up in strong credit, as well. we continue to hear the views from business leaders saying we need washington to eventually deliver for equity markets to continue to break out of this -- of these highs we have seen. do you share the same view? notes togethery i have three categories, the good, the bad, the ugly. the uncertainty of what is not happening traction-wise and washington falls into the ugly category. happen, because those business leaders are looking in planning on some sort of rate relief to help drive the economy. so they can live up to the growth trajectory we have seen in corporate earnings. the pressure there is going to come from everywhere. not only the individual taxpayer in the u.s., but business leaders as well. yvonne: always great to have you.

8:15 pm
by climate change, vietnam worse. that thisfigured out is smart economics. they are doing exceedingly well in terms of cornering the market. trump is basically saying, we care about this market. the paris deal alone has $1 of deals a year. that's simply the commitments that all the countries have made. president trump saying we don't need to win those deals. the united states ought to be out there, trying to win those deals, because there's said.t deal to be now, china will also do very well. who didn'tter modi, exactly come to power as a member of the sierra club, he wanted to promote growth. why did he say that i have three gigawatts of renewable energy and i'm going to go to 100 by 2022, just seven years? in biggest increase renewable energy in the history of the world. understandscause he

8:20 pm
and, we're for the accord we continue to, you know, plan to continue on with it. but also, some companies that a little less expected, g.e., ibm and even exxon mobil, who said we believe that following through with the paris climate accord is the right do.g to at the same time, i think it's been quite interesting to see andreaction of local, state city governments to the earlierment by trump today. and, again, not just places like california, which you might know, onuld be, you the progressive end of things, but even -- i thought perhaps most interesting was the reaction to a comment in the speech in which president trump beenaid, you know, i've elected the president of pittsburgh, not paris. and immediately after that, the mayor of pittsburgh came out publicly and said, well, we through to thew extent possible with the accord. is, think what you'll see

trend continuing even morphology this announcement -- even more following this announcement, china trying to step into more of a leadership role on sustainability. are the potential opportunities for foreign investors here in china, in the space?le >> well, the renewable market here, especially our market, which is distributed solar, is booming. relatively high price of electricity. you've got favorable government policies. you've got a strong subsidy, which is production based. more roof tops here than anywhere else in the world. so it's really just a recipe for the sector to take off. and what we've seen is it's from a firedrinking hose, trying to take in all of opportunities that come our way and sort them into act on and ones that we won't. and i think for multinationals

8:45 pm
relations. the two sides also recognized importance of developing global free trade and investment. that's a direct quote. the discord with president trump at the group of seven leaders italy last week prompted merkel to suggest the unreliablecome an partner. she subsequently held meetings as well asra modi the chinese premier. at the brussels meeting, the countries will work on a stalled investment deal and china will attempt to make progress towards economyofficial market status in the wto. that would make it more difficult for other countries to impose anti-dumping measures on chinese exports. >> now, another asian leader, india's narendra modi is in russia. has invited local companies defensivegh-tech equipment in india. the two say that the

8:47 pm
on defense and energy, it has been growing. india, of course, has been diversifying part of its defense and trade. so has russia. you know, lining up towards extent. some i think there have been some hiccups in the relationship, but relationship.rong age old tested. we must never forget the perspective of how india always looks to russia. >> but has the world order been now, because india has been wary of russia's cozy beijing.hip with russia was one of the biggest supporters of one belt, one road. moscow also a bit wary about to the u.s. as well. is there really this political will to expand this bilateral relationship beyond just defense? >> i think both countries, india for assia, are looking poly-centric world. i don't think anyone is looking bipolar world. from that point of view, the
8:48 pm
interests are aligned. multipolaro see a world. and india and russia are a part polarity. relationship with russia in the defense and energy side is still large. they are looking at building 12 new nuclear power plants in the private sector. so there is going to be a fair amount going on. yes, it is not as exclusive as it was in the past. both of them have been diversifying their commercial interests and political interests, that is true. >> but beyond defense, do you other opportunities then in this relationship? >> i think this is the challenge. this is the challenge, which modi, prime minister modi, is in thed to talk about st. petersburg forum, where he's unveil the outline of his -- of what he thinks the india-russia relationship should be in the decades ahead.
8:49 pm
numbers are very measly, under 10 billion. it hasn't grown much. not beente sector has involved. it's mostly government to government. i think there has got to be india is quite keen to move on this. defenseso looking for manufacturer. part of the make india program. russians,t, the private sector and the indian private sector can play a big role. we have seen one big deal in the sr oiltor between through a private equity, which is a commodity company. so we are seeing some of that. to go.re is a long way >> yes. certainly indeed. we're still waiting for some type of india e.u. trade a free tradeal or agreement, which has not been signed. what are going to be some potential hurdles there on that front? >> see, this is a challenge with
8:50 pm
