what will yellen say? >> it is all about legacy and she has excellence to go. -- she has a six months to go. there is no way she will be nominated again. she know she is on the way out. what kind of legacy do you want to leave? do you want to be the fed chairman that led inflation get out of control, you want to reality miller? -- do you want to be allen miller? but i think there has been a big change in fed speak the last couple of months. and i think it has been largely desire to show she is tough and she could raise rates and she will leave the u.s. economy with inflation under control. secondly, there has been talk about financial conditions and that is the second thing. the financial markets, the last generation all believe it was the fed put.
now we have the fed saying, sorry, gusy. everything is over the top here. s it is not just the equity markettephen isa. we've got a very big change in fed policy. mark: why aren't the markets taking it on board, if you agree with stephen? >> she does not want to be the first person to take the punch bowl away. and i think the markets are still watching the influence of that. and it is really difficult because polls are extremely biased. u.s. flows and european flows -- effectively what the central banks are now wssaying are, look, for the time being we will look more into output extension rather than cpi profiles. stories will
continue to be boring. oil might actually give a little bit of a boost on the break even over the next six months. but effectively, the central bank, we are getting the same by thec from the ecb, way. they are saying, we're going to look into the output extension and even there, we are getting the level of stimulus is not coherent anymore. that is what they are saying. the markets have to get a hold of it and understand it and adapt to that. therefore, we are still relatively negative. aside, weing the fed have to talk politics. stephen, congress is back, three weeks. health care will be attempted to be pushed through. before you move on to tax and infrastructure, health care has to be addressed. a, is it going to be addressed in three weeks? if it's not, what are the knock
on effects for the rest of the year? >> for the last three months, the donald stock in washington has come off the lows. i think there has been an understanding. and you read some of the editorials in the new york times. the resistance, or the attempt, tusing the russian weapon to stymie the whole administration, that will run out of steam. some of the by elections have come in good for the republicans. that gives the republican administration a little bit of a chance to put their differences aside, but the question is, can they? i don't know. ,he politics inside the beltway the divisions within the republican party are so great difficult still typical t to see in three weeks. expert we have
been talking to for the last quarter has been absolutely surprised with the slow space, the ability of this government to push for any type of reform. very good third they have a lot on their plate when it comes to investigations about the russian meddling. the media is not focused on that anymore, but effectively, we have not come to the conclusions of that yet. they don't have the willingness -- they probably have the willingness, but not the power to get people together. i agreed that the gop, it is the same template of friction. e'll come towill in the third section. up next, trump, putin, and g-20.

double its finds and diversify. this figuredants out at the pending at bit of -- pending exit of britain from the european union. >> i think our fundamental trend is starting. if you want to make money and do business with the companies in this group of 27 countries, 19 of them losing steam, then you have to be located in that part of the world. nejra: that is the bloomberg business flash. summit concluded with the u.s. more out of step than ever. president trump flew home, having been lectured on trade by china and france, having received platitudes. in his first sitdown meeting with president putin, the
leaders agreed on a syrian cease-fire. trump plans to create a cybersecurity and it with the russian, amidst criticism from fellow republicans, as well as democrats. what is the measure of success for this summit? who are the winners, the losers? >> well, yeah, of course that depends on who you are. i think the german chancellor angela merkel certainly got something out of it. she is running for reelection this year in less than three months time. she held a summit, holding aside the writing going on -- holding aside the rioting going on in the streets. if you like a facilitator of the world's most important leaders and got a final communique of the summit that bridged the
differences, but also did not paper over them, which was her purpose. we talked about putin. he also got this sort of -- what appears to be an announcement from trump that the russian meddling in the u.s. election, they will let bygones be bygones. we will see how that plays out. and certainly, french president summithad his biggest yet, if you like. he's only been in office for a couple weeks. everybody took something away from it, which does not mean it produced massive progress on these issues. mark: thanks a lot for filling us in on the g-20 summit. still with us, stephen isaacs
and luis costa. you are markets guys. how much do you care about the g-20? >> is not that relevant to markets, but it is interesting. i think the trump approach here was to reach out to different allies, different directions. he spent a great deal of time in poland and gave quite a keynote speech, quite a impressive speechn about western values. got through the summit, had the meeting with putin without a great deal of controversy -- a little bit about the cybersecurity, but they managed to make the point that they both wanted to get on, and made some sort of agreement reference regarding syria. , where is he going ? he's going to the chance ely
sees. a little bit of international cooperation. trump is completely isolated. bbc aslways shown on the a controversial president. you can ignore him and things are getting done by his the ministration, and that is not a bad thing. some say he is weak at home because of the probe and is undermined abroad. >> absolutely. unfortunately, the last time the g-20 meeting gave the markets an honest direction was during the european crisis in 2011. that has been it. now it is becoming a lot more boring. how comfortable is president trump still with the russian deal? he is desperately trying to move away from that and try to start a new policy agenda.
mark: that is typical with the probes going on back home. >> unfortunately, 80% of the story is out of his hands because we have these investigations and he is part of the investigations. he is being investigated by the national security agency. the story is far away from complete, which will continue to make him uncomfortable. there are point is, many world leaders who are uncomfortable with his administration. they are trying to make amends and the nice and friendly in front of the cameras, but the climate deal that fell through and the lack of support by the state, this is still an ongoing issue. there's a lot of risk sentiment around that. mark: little progress on north korea, climate or trade. up next, we hear exclusively from the chief executive of
competition. >> we are in the freedom business. our goal is to carry goods. 1/3 of all they goods in the world in value. course, we are in the business of carrying people from one continent to the other. so, we are in favor of having an open frontier. but it is also a strategic industry for many countries. there is regulated free competition. we are in favor. so, we are working hard to persuade our government and the european commission to put together rules that allow us to work in these regulated environments and to fight
against unfair competition. reporter: is this something you see for example, in the middle east with some of your rivals in the middle east region? >> more specifically in the gulf area, where we have three carriers, which are huge carriers. by 2020, you will have 800 planes in america, 1200 in 0 the gulfand 100 in area. these three are carriers able to deliver themselves. fromhave direct subsidies their government. they are not really commercial operators. theirre weapons of government. the competition with them is not fair. government,g to our
and to the european commission, to put together rules that favor fair competition. reporter: but the crisis we are seeing in the region with qatar airways having to change flights to 19 flight destinations, is this something you see evolving in the gulf region? will airfrance jump in to take some market share back? >> we needed to give up our business. this has nothing to do with what i was telling before. we don't want to take favor of the situation and force the consequence of the unfavorable situation with this.
we hope it will come back to a more normal relation between the states of the gulf area and between allies of this country. mark: up next, as theresa may opponents to out to deliver a brexit deal. one hour and 26 minutes into the session. yes, we see stocks rise today. investors, looking at the earnings side of the equation, looking at the factors. the wage data was tepid. yellen speaks this week. a big week, another one. this is bloomberg. ♪

may, this week she will appeal to opponents to appeal a successful brexit. she will promise to show renewed courage and vigor -- and vigor after coming under fire from our own party. a survey by british chambers of commerce says companies here overwhelmingly oppose to brexit talks. let's talk to stephen isaacs and luis costa. reset relaunch her credibility within not just the conservative party, but the country itself? this reaction is more than telegraphed and expected. she is trying to sound inclusive given how weak it is in the brexit process.
effectively labor and corbin are becoming very effective forces in how negotiations will be delivered over the next many quarters. this is effectively showcasing how weak they are. hard-core brexit part of the party. mark: reaching out to other parties with cross party cooperation during this process is what many have been crying out for. some might say she is doing it from a position of weakness, but isn't that what people want? they want inclusive talks. stephen: there is a bit of -- here. i give the prime minister credit here working something out. the party's pencil blitz for 40 years in europe.
-- the party has been split for 40 years in europe. where does jeremy corbyn stand? the labour party stood on everybody can have --, that we would somehow stay out, we might control immigration. it was a very ambiguous position. we no going back a long time that he was part of the hard , the contingent that was against the eu. that is if you want to bring socialism to the country which means mass nationalization, you name it, you can't do that in the eu. there are a lot of rules stopping you from doing that. i think it is quite likely that corbin is very happy for us to be out because it can allow him to institute a very aggressive program and tactically, why not let the tories carry the can?
why not let them carry forward a hard brexit, subtly supporting those actions within the conservative party and then the economy will suffer, you going to the election and guess who is prime minister? their two strands here. a couple of weeks ago there was a motion before the house for the u.k. to stay in the single market. 49 labor mps voted for it. they were all --. is a bit of a master tactician and theresa may is packing up just picking up on this. mark: can she last? would be prime minister in 2018 despite losing her majority. andrew mitchell says she is losing her authority. clearly there is dissension in the ranks. can she last another year? luis: i believe so.
the party is massively split, but you can squeeze and try to squeeze a consensus out of it. they don't see a huge advantage in getting rid of her right away. i still think you have somebody there with negotiations. we are already behind schedule. it looks like we will have an extension deal. the markets have not woken up to that yet. i think you still have a little bit of a residual life. mark: the economy is waking up to it, look at the pmi data last week. it is coming in below expectations, it is still above 50. it's the reality of brexit beginning to bite in the u.k. data? stephen: it is more a reality of how cyclical this a, me -- this economy is.
financial conditions globally, perhaps they are rising. that is going to choke things off. brexit is coming down the line. two factors together. luis: the brexit creates this cloud and it is influencing the we conduct monetary policy going forward, you cannot discard that. live, but ik it is do think you cannot discard because of effectively the central banks are going on a synchronized tightening. i'm pretty sure the board of the boe will discuss this more actively. with a very tight breakdown in
francois villeroy indicating the ecb has begun to a daft the intent -- adapt the intensity of its monetary policy. >> are monetary policy is efficient. as you just mentioned we had negative inflation a year ago. we expect for this year inflation of 1.5%. that is partly due to energy prices and the process of our implementation gives results. target is midterm inflation of around 2%. as long as necessary we will
implement the monetary policy. what we have to do and what we started to do is adapt the intensity of the monetary policy , get progress to our inflation target. what we did last march when we qe and wee monthly announced one month ago that clearly we would not reduce further interest rates. this will be our decision next fall. theill go on adapting monetary policy. >> do you think the discussion should move quicker? do you think markets are expecting discussions to move more quickly? >> i think we have been extremely clear about the
predictability of our monetary strategy. december, we have known are monetary policy for the year to come. we will see what happens after that. we will have no impatience. we are independent, meaning from marketal pressure and impatience. >> are you waiting for the political risk? you mentioned protectionist policies -- global growth. >> this is an important characteristic of the european situations.
political risk has diminished within the eurozone. brexit, 2017after this is to be a very dangerous year in the eurozone with much turmoil expected. we have seen exactly the contrary. recovery is solid because of his domestic driven. there are political risks, but they are more on a global level outside the eurozone. the brexit negotiation is a real challenge. what we have to do and this is a -- because of the g-20 summit happening now is to go on with world policy with international rules on financial relations. this is the best solution for global growth and this is the
best solution against inequalities. mark: with us is stephen isaacs and lewis concept -- lewis concept -- luis costa. you've got the germans and the villeroy is side, when we say we start to change things. give us the timeline. stephen: i'm looking forward into the home stretch with mario draghi. the question is who will be the next president? the president of the ecb has incredible power. i think we are looking at germany and that is important. it is germany's turn. we've had from's comp -- france, the netherlands and italy. which economy is due? the answer is germany. i think that in itself, just the fact of a german there is incredibly symbolic and markets
are often swayed by symbols. i think it goes with the flow. we've reached monetary policy. the evan flow for sure, we are moving in a very different monetary direction. mark: look at the moving yields in the last couple of weeks. what is the path now? much?why are we moving so what has changed? we had a few speeches here in there, but effectively the markets are finally starting to wake up to the reality. the markets love the look of the story from the sequencing point of view. by september we might have to signal that we are going to start seeing a reduction. meantime, do not lose
track of how synchronized that notbe with the fed, it is one single central bank. 2018-2019, there could be no -- with balance sheets or policy. mark: the bond yields rise last week, stocks held on. in europe, we rose. wire stocks being hit more? -- why are stocks being hit more? luis: you look into spanish stocks, we haven't had too much damage. perception --does there's this misperception about european equity.
u.s. stocks -- there is this perception of the cycle recovery. not a mature cycle recovery in europe where in the u.s. we had quarters of extension period in the last quarter we were worried about retail. if you look into inflation there is a method by purchase. i do think that was expected. add a certain point if we continue with the rising yield, the bnl shocks can become nastier. this is not good for global risk in general. look at how real yields are rising. this is nasty in general and
high-yield risk in general. stephen: the market does not want to believe it. you go back, we are going into qe, we had a lot of jawboning beforehand. of we will doech whatever it takes. a lot of people didn't believe it when it actually happened. we have the jawboning now and people at the moment are very skeptical. we are seeing the data and saying this isn't going to happen. i think the market is wrong, it is going to happen. get ready for it. mark: stephen isaacs and luis costa. up next, bonds have stabilized after -- bonds of stabilize. this is bloomberg. ♪
best performing emerging markets, look at the pace. europeant eastern currencies. luis: things will be choppy for emerging-market assets in general. i do believe we were discussing the five or 10 year yields in and we know they are trending down, kind of flatlining. expectations of global tightening, not a good environment for ems. i think it will be a lot choppy are here. investors will have to do their homework. we were talking about brazil, we are political risk. mark: and in south africa. luis: things will be, a lot more interesting. stephen, earnings are
troubling you. as we begin the earnings season. stephen: the punch bowl is being taken away on the monetary side then earnings per share. i would encourage all investors to look at that. it has been flatlined, a bit of a bounce in the first quarter. expected to be some advance in earnings, but nowhere near first quarter. where do earnings go? aserwise the share of labor it gains capital, perhaps being squeezed too far. that worries me. earnings per share is going nowhere and that is bad when stock prices go up. they are at their peak. time to go on holiday. mark: and invest in what? stephen: corporate bonds.
there is some value there. maybe five years, but the yield curve does not pay. mark: do you have a favorite pick right now with the ems? luis: we have to be short with some of the high-yielding currencies. .ou have to be very careful we do like a very short-term tactical short on some of the high-yield currencies. weak, it looks like the template of low diminishing returns when it comes to the meeting. talking about nigeria being forced to cap production. it looks like it looks like a translated into the energy market. i cannot discard a break. mark: we are going down to the 30's?
a couple of things going on in private markets. bankruptcy, a 3 billion company -- $3 billion company at its high. stephen: the private markets have higher valuation. --k at this and manikins look at the shenanigans at uber. when smart money starts to sell, the game is over. mark: stephen isaacs and luis costa, thank you gentlemen. that is this -- that is it from us. guy johnson in london will be joined by scott keane out of new york. this is bloomberg. ♪

we will talk a lot about inflation this week. tom: after the pageantry we saw in hamburg, it is time to reset. world leaders go home. we talked to james hurting who has talked to too many leaders going home. what is the buzz on mr. trump after hamburg? i got the zeitgeist over the weekend, we mentioned g-19, was the u.s. really there? what did you observe? talk is not a-19 joke. the world and american allies are scratching their heads. they see mr. trump as someone to work around, not some of the work with. our colleague mark champion had a terrific story today on the wire about world leaders finding ways, i matrix, -- finding t
ricks, finding tools to operate considering the u.s. president. tom: we have the uproar over trump junior. he goes on to a really difficult health care debate. my reading on it is it is basically dead. is that when you take away from london? >> that is what everyone is saying. given the history of the house and what happened to the house bill and the states for farblicans, it is not too from saying that their legitimacy as a governing party rests on their ability to make ofs that make their promise repealing obamacare a reality, and if they cannot, that will undermine their standings with their base. if they do pass, that will mobilize the opposition.
househy is the white briefing the new york times on a story that there was a meeting between trump junior and a russian lawyer? >> they did not brief on the meeting but on the motivation, that there was dirt to be found on mrs. clinton. i know as little as you do when it comes to the real motivations, but we can guess or infer. it is not an unreasonable inference to suggest they need be trying to -- they may be trying to get ahead of something worse that could come out and spin and even worse story. this is an incremental story. causes a minor uproar. we are not close yet to the explosion. guy: ok. kamal sharma, we are not close to the big explosion. what happened in your world when
that big explosion comes? markets reaction to the trump tweets twists and turns, underlying the concerns is that there is something there. if you look at the broader opposition, the investment community remains structurally short the dollar. this is despite we have the big poston dollar-yen election. the investor community remains concerned there is a geopolitical side to this trump story. tom: we will talk about this later in the hour, but percolating over the weekend is evidence of a weaker united kingdom economy. do you buy that? kamal: we have been at the forefront of this view that the domestic economy will continue to slow as the squeeze on real
incomes continues further. some of the supermarkets, this slowdown in consumer demand is continuing. if you look at that relative to what michael slager's has been saying, he thinks some of the slowdown in the domestic economy can be absorbed by a stronger global economy and investment flows that have hit sterling since the referendum. tom: where are investment flows into london? i don't see any evidence of slowdown. kamal: if you look at the imf numbers up until 2016, 6.5 times the levels of inflows we saw visibly in 2015. there are large flows coming and even after the brexit referendum. u.k.lls you the demand for assets on the back of the 20% depreciation in sterling looks attractive.
one final question, i took away the multilateral diplomacy, trade deals from the g-20 meeting. i've been told continuously for the last two years that the weakness in wages is globalization. if i see reduce globalization, will wages go up? >> i don't think globalization is a train you can derail. there is no shortage of bilateral trade deals. regardless of the legal construct around it, global ohizat -- globalization is here to stay. carl kamal sharma is going to stay with us.

difficulty for those who want to remain in the single market and the customs union. they will see the opportunity of this repeal bill, which will be published on thursday as an opportunity to pull things back in another direction. there are red lines that people are saying cannot work if we want to have some sensible trading relationship. one of them is the idea of a supranational court. if you're going to have trading and all those other things we do with europe, you need to have a court that crosses borders. it is at the heart of all of this. i suppose lawyers would do this. i am one. if you want to do trading across borders and have relationships on tariffs and all those things, you have to cooperate, and you have to have some kind of adjudication body. they may want to call it something else, but there will still be one.
tom: one of our themes this morning is leaders coming back on to face domestic issues. i was thunderstruck knocked out invisible the prime minister was at you 20, but she looked exhausted -- at g-20, but she looked exhausted. maydoes prime minister represent? who is it? certainly, she is probably feeling demoralized. she will put on a good show tomorrow when she makes her, if you like, reclaim on her authority. she has been undermined by the selection. -- this election. there are people in her own cabinet who do not feel hard brexit is very sensible. might chancellor, who she
have sacked if she got the big election, he is unhappy about it. even the chief negotiator is making noises that he feels we have to think there's the about this business of a supranational court. there has to be something. are a lot of ministers bringing their own reasons as to why they are seeing the brexit she has talked about in the past will not be billable -- the deliverable. is there time on the european side? i would assume the european leadership waits this out. helena: they can do that. the problems exist in britain. they are multiple. i sit in the house of lords and on the european subcommittee on justice. there is a lot of law, by god. there will be real problems
because one thing the government will want to do is have in this bill what is called henry the lauses,ca secondary legislation. we don't like secondary legislation in britain. there'll be strong opposition to that on the conservative fringes. if you're going to change law, we have to be there doing that. how she gets all that stuff through in the timeframe, i think we will have to have a transitional arrangement, which she has said she does not want. there will be challenges in the house of lords. i think this is going to be a messy business. guy: very messy, pretty complicated, and pretty unknowable in terms of the ultimate outcome. what do i do if i look at sterling this week? wage data coming out on
thursday, the u.k. consumer being squeezed, there is expectation it could be softer than soft. is that the big event this week? kamal: you have a hawkish bank of england on one hand and soft data on the other. on brexit, i think nobody really knows where we are headed. we have been talking about if you are trading brexit narrative, your trading volatility. this is not about trying to pick the top and bottom in sterling day today, and that is not going to be conducive to trading sterling. think the top end of the range in cable is 1.30, and that is easing lower.
there may be some kind of transitional deal towards the end of negotiations that moves the u.k. exit out of the eu, which will be bullish for sterling. guy: does the bank of england raise rates in august? kamal: if they were going to be hawkish, they should have done that earlier in the year. now they are being challenged by the fact that the consumer continues to slow down. if inflation remains point, and ignorerative that we can the slowdown in consumer data because we have investment spending and tailwinds from the global economy, they may well do. our baseline is the bank of england will not hike this year. guy: within this that tom: within this is the assumption of what politicians do. we are staggering into a summer that is a blur between the two major parties in the u.k.
where will we be in september? helena: i don't think a lot is going to change by september. a lot is being done behind the scenes on this repeal act, which is supposed to take all the european legislation and bring it home to britain before we decide what to keep and get rid of. a lot of it relies on reciprocity. that depends on your playing ball with us. -- europe playing ball with us. a lot of homework will be done by politicians on how to deal with this legislation. labor is looking at this. byn is somewhat of a eurosceptic himself, but he is also looking at opportunities for labor. weakeneds a

it could be he had the perfect storm, or there is something in the air taking us in a different direction. guy: we are going to circle back to the ecj. if i am in the financial markets trying to understand brexit, i need to simplify it and find something to hang my hat on. ecj looks like it is one of those areas. if theresa may shows any sign of softening her stance on the ecj, is that something markets will pay attention to? it seems to be an absolute redline. if there's any inkling that she is going to act away from that position, how do you react? kamal: i think we have already seeing in the first batch of negotiations, they have already backtracked. i think markets are in the wait-and-see mode. ecj position is
going to be critical. i think that is likely to help sterling. seeing are waiting and on how negotiations go next week. guy: thank you very much. helena kennedy, member of the house of lords. you we have coming up for is more british politics. business secretary in a coalition government, but he is also potentially the new leader of the liberal democrats. u.k. government selling arms to saudis. more on that in a moment. this is bloomberg. ♪

but not forever. kamal: i think the bank of canada has been keen to work through that. one thing they have to be aware of is that they are looking at the nonenergy sector of the manufacturing economy which has suffered postrecession. they need to assure the canadian dollar does not appreciate it much. the base effect of the oil price shock will wear off in the months and years ahead. tom: what is your trade for the week? what is the signal trade merrill lynch is recommending? kamal: i think markets will fade a little bit heading into the ecb. traitsk the direction of has been for foreign guidance in october. we may want to rain some of that in coming up. euro-dollar lower. tom: thank you very much. what a great briefing this

watching overall market positions, what they called monetary positions in the economy. what it ise for doing. market is stable. and there is no systemic risk in the system. , i having heard about that think all central banks right now are overly sensitive to the risk. and there is now a constraint on monetary policy.

later on this week in the repeal bill? so she connection make this work for her? if not, what happens next? simon: there is a number of amendments that can be added to that and that is what the labour party will be trying to do this week. adding amendments to limit the ability of the government to change some of the things in the legislation that it is shifting over from the eu. guy: one of the red lines that theresa may has made clear is that she will stand firm on the glaring standout amongst everything else -- if we start to see any weakening, how big of a signal is that? simon: it is a big signal. you can use that as a benchmark. earlier this year it was a hard .edline at the ecj since then, the analysis
increasingly is that they will but theyfrom the ecj will be willing to do some kind of deal to create a new body that will oversee or have say in return slot. so there is lots of areas to monitor in that zone and it is a of weakness.on guy: simon kennedy on the brexit story. we need to discuss what is happening in these markets. carl weinberg will stick around. coming up, the new leader of the liberal democrats -- what is his view on what is happening here? we find out later today. this is bloomberg. ♪
