j.p. morgan. good to see you this morning. i wrote down, the leadership challenge. catharsis or pragmatism? of padma to voice them at the moment that seems to be raining for theresa may. in other words, hold the hound the debate. hounds at bay. stephen: they are not what they would like to be. that theresaon is may would win a compelling majority in the general election, and she did not. any prime minister who calls an fails by a majority is in a weakened position, but the choreography is complicated. two weeks after the election, you start with the e.u. negotiations, and clearly, what you need to stability of leadership at that point.
the last thing you can afford at the moment is a conservative party leadership election. manus: we will get more details today in terms of e.u. citizens rights in the united kingdom. a more substantive response. yesterday,g to us anything but the european court of justice. i have written down, style over substance. this is the brexit right argument. if i can rebrand this, i have won a victory. stephen: it's interesting. i'm not sure the country as a whole is as incensed about the european court of justice at some politicians. -- as some politicians. we will see what comes out of it. it is a year and a day since we voted for brexit. let's talk about markets.
a bounce for four days in a row. this is the topline index. how do you look at the u.k. at the moment? fading consumer confidence. we have gone from hero to zero in terms of growth. challenging time for the u.k. in terms of markets? stephen: personally, i do not see it as challenging. revenues for companies are so much of the last month -- what is happening underneath is interesting. growth is not zero. gone from the best-performing growth in g7 to the lowest. stephen: that is true.
the u.s. is still in the middle stages. the uk's facing challenges, because until the nature of our relationship with our largest single trading partner is clear, it is probable you would get some deferment of investment from companies. the sterling has weekend. has weakened.g there will be pressure on consumption. it is difficult to see genuine pressure on consumption happening at the moment. in the background, the cause of the rotation in the stock market , a lot of domestic sectors have been genetically berated. dramatically-- derated. manus: i hear what you're saying. we have a variety of issues to deal with.
we have been binging on credit in the united kingdom. it is growing at around 10% per annum. the numbers are pretty staggering. in terms risk is that of the financial policy committee, which will meet tomorrow? there is an expectation of drawing back. me when iworry to look at the trajectory of that. stephen: in some ways it is. if you look at the history, it of -- ically the amount what is the saturation point for consumer credit? i don't think we have reached that saturation point. the aggregation of debt to fund expenditure is a danger. productivity is not zero.
it has been growing modestly in the u.k.. manus: if i overly a percentage of debt i have relative to the household income, it becomes a more of a question. stephen: then flip that around. what about the debt servicing costs? because interest rates have been low, there is that servicing cost. manus: let's see what happens. i will beove higher, interested to see how the u.k. consumer holds. the position in the expectation, that puts doubt in people's minds. guest stays with us.
welcome back. it is "bloomberg daybreak: europe." let's get a business flash. has called onloeb nestle to sell its stake in l'oreal. it intends to encourage management to sell its stake in l'oreal, increasing leverage for share buybacks and reviewing its portfolio. thanlds a stake of more $3.5 million. it for nestle was able to immediately comment.
-- was unable to immediately comment. takata files for bankruptcy protection. the company filed for bankruptcy protection in the u.s. and japan. filing listede more than $10 billion in my abilities. -- the filing listed more than $10 billion in my abilities. that is your bloomberg business flash. manus: to italy. it has approved emergency rules for two of its failing banks. mobilizing as much of euros to liquidate the lenders, so good assets -- so good assets. the finance minister said there was no better alternative. >> is there a better alternative than this it -- then this
degree? the stability of the financial system. i wish the people who criticize me would tell me what a better alternative could be, because i do not see it. great to see you this morning. how did this decree come about? i have to tell you the size of this operation. 17 billion euros is huge. nobody was expecting this kind of amount. what happened is the two banks, "bloomberg daybreak: europe and bancao banca spa -- popolare di vicenza spa and veneto banca spa will be
money to cover potential risks related to the operations. monthsernment tried for to find a different solution. they were trying to attract private investors in order to rescue the banks. successful.s not the ecb said time has run out and there are no other possibilities, plans to be implemented. that was the situation. from the political point of view, we heard a clear message from the finance minister, which is, you tell me. i have no alternative. this is the only alternative. there is no better alternative. what this driven by pragmatism
or political actions? >> i think it was a mix of both. he wanted to avoid any big distraction. let's from italy will go to general election maybe as early as next october, november, maybe early 2018. of course there was a lot of criticism coming from the opposition. saying, again, it will be up to the italian taxpayers to force the deal. let's keep in mind that these two banks, while they may not be big in size, they are significant, because they are in the central of the region that is highly productive in italy. thank you so much. details.latest
stephen macklow-smith is the head of european strategy at j.p. morgan. he is still with us. the saving of these two banks or the splitting of these two banks, do you think this is a good message to the market saying italians cannot in size, 17 billion? stephen: we saw this with the injection of funds. we are getting towards the end of the problem. this is not the start of the italian banking problem. people look at these assets, they look back to acquisitions of american banks in 2007. they say, i have seen this play before. italian --s in the the issues in the italian baking system are now well known.
we know what the it -- the size of the italian npl's are. they are a relic of 4 -- poor growth for many decades. the size was so great and everybody knew about them, that trying to bridge the groep -- thege the gap and the marks bank has taken is too far for the banks capital base. manus: relative to the european story, you can see 40% at ven eto. as you say, it is nearing the end of the issue for italian banks. stephen macklow-smith stays with us. line in terms of
>> the dollar is. and there is a little bit of an update for you. ande is the dollar-yen small games for the dollar. let's put the markets into context. good morning to you. and weis is interesting are looking at how this will develop through the day. up andtish pound is there are interesting lines talking about what is happening. up righthe ftse 100, now and the pound is up and that
tells you that some european markets might do good. dragound has acted as a and the trend lines are interesting. you see the index here and the trend line still remains in place. we have not broken that. there are some interesting trends happening to keep an eye on. as pointed out this morning, will this be a lead indicator or an anomaly? if this was going to break above, would it act as a catalyst? we will keep an i on this and watch it carefully. daybreak is available on your tablet. you know how to get it. coming to the rescue of italy.
euros.ion proper expensive. two are going to clean up of the banks in the region and the eu approved the intervention governmentsl see provide funding to purchase the good assets by 12 billion euros and they will set aside risks related to liquidations, so let me bring in smith. you were just talking about this and you said that there is data on the nonperforming loans. i think that is staggering. what may take place with the markets? >> the issue for the italian banks is that the size of the market is daunted by that and you have seen the secondary markets and the gap is because
of the largest in the world and there is 80 billion euros this and that is just 25% of the total. >> a big consequence. >> there is a flow of credit with a relatively modest rate precisely by the balance sheets. lovely a . it is going to be a busy one. andave the stability report it booms and janet yellen is in london. -- o draghi
daybreak focuses in on a company fired for bankruptcy -- filing for bankruptcy. they have $10 billion in liabilities from the airbags. the company will be sold and the .irbag maker is owned by china , you mentioned the central bank and what a week we have for you. european banks have cut their dollar exposure. the german lender's are among the highest-met dollar position and they are matching the assets and liabilities in the currency and it is a busy week beginning. we have brought in richard jones
richard smith is on set me. it will be a big week from a intral bank perspective and want to jump off with the mostal bankers and their recent report that the inflation spurt cannot be excluded. the bigger risk is the financial cycle bust. are the risks rising or are they ebbing? that it is taking a much longer view with this indication in the short terms. cause me to be concerned about the financial
buzz. as a result of this in the changes in policy, the position is more robust than it has been they have fairly aggressive risk of the credit portfolio. >> it will be a busy week, in terms of data. i have to go broad and swiftly and ease myself back in. it will be a busy week, in terms of inflation and it is globally proving hard. >> that is a key points to sort of focus ourselves on this week. we get these central bankers and you get your area of core get then and we we have not2% and
2% in four orat five years. the u.s., pattern in but not where it has supposed to have been for the last few years. they are throwing the kitchen sink at this and it is still where it has been during the post-financial crisis. >> we have a couple of articles up on the bloomberg terminal and we are talking about unemployment and the propensity to deliver wage inflation and the change in the dynamics of our situation. would traditionally work and greater minds then i can question whether they are rogan. the coronations are last -- less
robust and this is an issue that needs to change. validare still valid -- targets. theiris the point i had overwhelming of and it is aation and theh core inflation product was of the oil price in 2016 and you look at the dynamics in the labor market and it is very interesting, the change in the participation rate.
in the eurozone, the participation rate has said only been climbing as a result of the deregulation in the labor market putting more people back to work. the result is that the eurozone unemployment is still in the 8% the percentaget of people employed is an all-time high. the participation rate has been you would associate with the employment rate and we andin a amending process they have not started to see the wage inflation pressures that you would expect. >> there have an comments over the weekend and talk about the propensity to raise rates.
is loose monetary policy going longer than actually on ad and i know he is hawkish tilt. we must not become prisoners of the governors of markets. this will be part of the debate from them and it will be important. >> is a classical debate that we yearseen over the last 10 and we now are seeing this ongoing debate and the question about inflation and wages behaving as a conundrum. as long as it is still a conundrum, the models are not quite as robust or as applicable to situations as have been in
the past. opine let a smarter mind on that. if thomas jordan describes that as a conundrum, that is probably indicative of the central banks. it is a conundrum. switch and talk about the corporate stories of the day. sell $27pressure to is partin the proposal world'sge fund and the biggest food company is what is being targeted. bloomberg now is the managing editor. they are going in and punching he is layingand
theory for the agenda. we have broken the story first and the way he sees it is actionstlé is ripe for and it is nudged on and he wants the company with the big chunk that they own and there are a lot of things you could do with that. that they should shed on companyts and a huge with lots of areas where they could approve the margins and
there has really been a case with so many areas. >> the question is what makes they aretarget and aware of the group. what do you think makes them stand out? from activistses in this space. >> that is right and it is consumer companies and we are seeing it. even to some degrees, we see it unilever.o lever -- he is probably thinking this is another company where he can try his hand and a area that is interesting is there is a new ceo who is a man who has shown
and he isnts a change probably thinking he has an ally and a ceo who is willing to shake things up. >> let's see how the response is. there is the managing editor. thank you very much. so, 40 million shares. shake down. buybacks. can they beestors, a source for good and create better value for asset managers? >> theoretically, anything is possible and i am not convinced that there is it better vision for the company. nestlé is a company that we talked about inflation and they are a company that really
benefits from the ability to push through price increases and leverage the goods. it is about brands and people pay for brands and it is less priced in. is pretty well placed in the future. >> there is a flow of money and there is a question about the money and global businesses that have reasonable exposure. ticker and the flow
of money. japan and the eurozone this comes tolike the end of the issue. it is a conflagration that still sounds appealing. there iseeing this and every sense of that and there is a lot of good stuff going on. >> we will talk about some of that. stay with the daybreak team. daybreak on your mobile. this is it.
>> thank you. the company sparked the bankruptcy protection and did more than $10 billion in liability, including plans for automakers and for people who brought class-action lawsuits. a gauge of bank financial time. the move came after the german issues.ns the representatives for ubs and deutsche bank declined to comment. that is your bloomberg business flash. >> thank you very much. the secretary of state has weighed in on the qatar crisis and says that they will find it difficult to comply with some

there is thed and i don't think it was necessarily a great story, shothe second point is a in the third point is there is a generally weaker dollar. the second point is the fundamentals in the market and it is still average. preoccupied and you to makeld do anything this. when you look at the oil market,
how does this play into your investments at the moment? is aght now, there bearishness and it is not fundamentally broken. the long-term or main reasonably bearish. near-term is not a great say andd it is fair to we are nearing a point. how confident about this are we? not very. >> pulling this together, they have given away all of this since november of last year and and what doesllar
it take to change the perspective? >> there is a normalization path that has been thrown into doubt and the fed has said not to and theyut inflation and it will goth higher. >> will it take higher in the eyes of the rising fed? >> there is a sensible point of view of want markets. is this yield back and it , but you willult
