>> trump threatens to shut down the government if he doesn't get funding to build the wall across the mexican border. president draghi -- in his speech. the u.k. gives up more ground to the european union. says european may law will influence the u.k. long after brexit. get you set up for market action. here it is. strong gains on the s&p 500. features softer this morning. foot, up byfront 2/10 of 1%. manufacturing data. treasuries stable. we go nowhere. thefferent picture in european bond market. alix: in italy, yields up about two straight days.
7:01 am
the why is what is unknown. is the spreading commodities market everyone is watching. the spread is almost -$4. the global tightening we are seeing in the market when it comes to balancing. .10.r up by the vix, modest today. desk david says trump was back in campaign mode. he took on nafta, the media, and the republicans senators from arizona. he threatened to shut down the government over the building of the wall in mexico. >> we have to close down the government, we are building the wall. me be clear to democrats in congress who oppose a border
7:02 am
wall and stand in the way of border security. you are putting all of america's safety at risk. david: explain what the president was doing here. keep thee things is to government going. why did he reach out and say we may shut it down? >> he felt a need to draw a red line about the border wall. a number of republicans and all democrats are opposed to using taxpayer money to pay for a border wall. the president says this is something he campaigned on an something he believes in, something his voters expect from him. he said it is something he will require to sign a funding bill. congress has a number of things they need to do. this throws a wrench in the process and makes it difficult
7:03 am
to get a funding deal and keep the government open. onid: in the speech, he took both republican senators from arizona. you have seen about what the relationship is with mitch mcconnell. the relationship between trump and mcconnell has disintegrated and they have not spoken to each other in weeks. the rupture between the two tumultuous moment. there is scant room for legislative error. you have the majority leader taking on his own republican president. outhe president was lashing
7:04 am
yesterday. he is entering his eighth month in office with no pieces of signature legislation. he is upset with republicans. moreinks they should get done. he is not making nice, not trying to make friends. he believes his base will get him over the top in terms of squeezing some of these republicans who have not been on the team were supporting him .ully yesterday, he was sending notes and signals to republicans as they get near to getting back to work in congress, that no matter what, he believes his base will work with him. noisy at the white house.
7:05 am
you have a decision to make. you can shut down the government with him and outsource the blame to other parties. david: remember when newt gingrich shut down the government. it really helped clinton. jon: after the markets yesterday, higher after a move of almost 1%. futures were softer. now, looking at the dramatiction, nothing tell me what you think about it. >> government shutdown, no matter who is the occupant in the white house, this has been
7:06 am
well reversed. i don't think we will see a sharp market reaction until there is definitive evidence something dramatic will happen. i don't think we want to get there. the treasury build curve captured the story a couple of weeks ago. i wonder, are we going to see anything outside those moves in the market? could it be a broader story? dollar-yen and other potentially disruptive things that could happen, it is worth monitoring whether that feeds into other markets. this is something that has been off.me on and
7:07 am
a full shutdown will be disruptive. it should make everyone involved think twice. this reminds me of greece. there are only certain weeks of the year you have to care about it. risk, needed to do you where is the best area to do that? talk about politics, we have to see how much that can affect the fundamental scenario. if it impacts earnings and economic growth, people are de-risk already. event, is a political which could have long-term ramification, people may look into rotation. equities, we are not overweight in the u.s., but if there is a prospect of more
7:08 am
de-risking, that could be an area to go. isx: what perplexes me companies that beat on the top line did not give us stocks we are used to. is the catalyst for the fundamentals starting to wane? >> people are asking where is the next upside catalyst. heading into a conversation, we have moved away from -- what is , thatto happen to europe focusing how they are their investments. if that continues to hold, i don't see a reason why we should hold back in the near future. it has been this peso
7:09 am
strength story. this morning, it is not dramatic. it is only a move around 6/10 of 1%. it is bayer and off of the back of a combative speech. >> they have to justify staying where it is. another -- most important, when it comes to u.s., peso is most liquid.
7:10 am
we saw how dollar peso went through 22 at the hive. that is an early warning indicator in the market to look at. it is susceptible to repositioning risk. david: to what extent do you take into account whether a country is making its money domestically or internationally, given the talk coming out of trump? >> we have to look at a sector by sector basis. northrelevant given the korea related sanctions. escalate, howto does that happen. does china want to retaliate by where they companies are particularly exposed or do you want to start on the low
7:11 am
level and then you risk escalation. let's than a broad brush, look at it on a sector by sector level. if you look at the earnings, probably about 45% less than that. alix: is there any answer just cannot answer? ask the audience gets to questions at this panel and if jeff had a book, against each bang.ce member, bang, there is not a question he can answer.

jon: mario draghi said research shows cueing and forward guidance have been a success. qe involves direct intervention by central banking markets through large-scale act purchases.ge-scale jon: he gave no clues when he might and monetary stimulus. joining us now, paul, who leads our coverage of western european central banks. was there anything we should take away?
7:15 am
read between the lines all you like and there is nothing they are -- nothing there. this, he was speaking in germany, one of his biggest critics. said you must be open minded, you must do your research and come up with policy and not get stuck on outdated paradigms that don't work. jon: there are policies you can divorce from the political pressure, as well. if politics in germany had its way, i imagine qe in germany would not be here. going forward, what do we expect ?rom the ecb >> caution at the very least.
7:16 am
stickb has said he will to the theme of the conference. main factors people are looking out for, what will happen with the bond purchase plan and any concerns about the euro. draghi had the opportunity to mention that and did not do so. theay be sanguine on matter. those are the two topics, but don't get your hopes up. jeffrey.are joined by what we had paul talking about, this is august. august has seen a huge run in the euro. they have never gained this much through august. the white bars are the full year.
7:17 am
but howot say anything, does he start to address this? >> i don't think he as as concerned. the important thing for the ecb is whether the recovery in the eurozone is broadening out and whether inflation is gaining traction. evidence that unemployment is falling faster than expectations. as the ecb was highlighted, the ecb qe fell. it is likely they moved to taper next year. the exchange rate is moving. i don't think the ecb is going to be concerned about the level of the euro. pmi data.had the the stronger euro is not
7:18 am
hurting. verbal intervention is nothing new for mario draghi. >> it is not levels that matter. it is a question of pace. may verbal intervention will come through. there is a process where the ecb can flag rings. is forecast for next year 4.3%. there will be downside risk. flag it in advance and the market will correct itself. that just the pace matters. jon: what is the base case now? 60 to zero and here is how it happens, or we go from 60 to 40 and here is how long it lasts. >> i think the latter.
7:19 am
much more sensible to say this is what we are going to do in the first quarter. we will come back and address the issue again. wouldng the bond rate make some sense. everything is data dependent. if the eurozone was showing signs of pouring over, it may be atficult to say anything all. the market is looking for clarity. whether we get that in october or december, we are not going to get it at jackson hole. david: some form of coordination is important among the banks, as you look at the fed and the ecb. general, moving away from the radical accommodation. those are basically coordinated together rather than disruptive.
7:20 am
>> they love to see some kind of the ferris plan. they would talk to each other and ultimately, it is determined by domestic fundamentals. we have seen some degree of synchronization in individual cycles. europe and japan are following along. the u.s. was ahead of the curve, now, look at where euro dollar is. the weakness in the dollar, that is helping the u.s. on the margins. about u.s.t is it economists choosing beautiful locations for these? both our guests are sticking

david: when central bankers gather in wyoming, one is and will the janet yellen's remarks on financial stability. as investors calculate the quantitative -- questioning whether central bankers will be as important as they have been. many believe central bankers are in control of markets, but with less room to cut rates and expand alan's sheets compared to 10 years ago. learn whethert to central banks are masters of the universe or emperors with no clothes. which is it?
7:24 am
>> i don't think they would claim to be masters of the universe. central bankers are mastering the arts of maintaining optionality. is the ecbf exit going to execute? keeping cards as close to their chest as possible. they will communicate. they will not try to disrupt the market. they will let the market know where the power lies. david: as they exit from the bond market, will they be less important to that market? the umpired you have playing in the game. >> there is risk of short-term market disruptions.
7:25 am
ultimately, it is about communicating the flow. as long as the two sides go hand in hand, the process can be managed, do no harm. bearing in mind, there is the ability to go the other way, as well. the ecb is doing its thing and the boj is doing its thing as well. we are about to find out how to removeit is accommodation and raise interest rates. how hard will that be and what will it mean for markets? >> you have interest rates and

british prime minister theresa may once down to take control of the country's exit from europe, now the government is willing to accept a relationship with the review court of justice. the ok is open to abiding by the ruling and sticking to it. global news 24 hours a day, powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts. i am emma chandra. jonathan: thank you. let's talk about this. is it a red line or one that has been diluted a little bit? guest: it is a redline come and this is one that has been hugely, symbolically important. the reaction has been quite muted.
7:33 am
a very outspoken pre-brexit member of parliament says this is fine, but he does not see this as backtracking at all. theresa may had said in october, two great applause from the conservative party, that brexit meant leaving the jurisdiction of the ecb. what it means now is direct jurisdiction. mighte of the things they do, they want close cooperation, as you mentioned earlier, but they might refer decisions to the ec and they are abiding by and decisions of thej, ecj, as one of the ministers said this morning, they would keep half and i on it. half an eye on it. jonathan: will they establish a new court, some justices from europe, some from the u.k.? emma: that seems to be what they are suggesting.
7:34 am
they do not want an off the shelf solution, but norway is a member of the single market, and the court rules on dispute basically between atomism and the eu. that core does tend to follow for theng of the ecj, rulings are not binding. even with that in july, philip hammond raised the possibility of the model that the u.k. might seek to adopt. jonathan: thinking about things going forward, compromising, getting something back, what are they looking to get back. it was a stumbling block, britain's opposition to the ecj was a massive stumbling block to any kind of good brexit deal. whether you talk about the interim arrangement for a future trade deal, so in terms of compromise, there should be more scope for review. jonathan: bloomberg's emma ross-thomas come our london
7:35 am
bureau chief. still with us, geoffrey yu of ubs wealth management and david owen of jefferies. the strategy, they were not last long. o: i think what is happening is the obvious. in the real world, it is a very deep relationship with the eu, everything is going to have to adopt a lot of the ecj rulings. so the statement to me was the obvious. remember, a lot of this is just asked fo aspirations of the part of the u.k. government. is squeezingarnier again, saying actually we have to settle first the divorce, the irish question, and labor. those things have to come first in his mind, and the
7:36 am
negotiations kick off next week. geoff, we did see the low. at a two-month that is theresa may backed away from the redline, supporters what back away from her, etc. is that not the case? geoffrey: there will be some elements of political uncertainty, and that will remain with us, but i think the declining study has more to do with the provision and great the fact that the boe is probably not in a position to hike at anytime in the future. remember, the market was up. that will continue to drive sterling. alix: david, do you degree that the politicalhat risk, when do i really need to care about brexit? david o: you still have to care about it right now. a drop in fdi flows into the ok, so, you know, brexit is going to
7:37 am
have an impact on the economy. tomorrow, we get migration data. we have gdp data. all of those things will show some of the impact on the way to the economy. but it remains high, and the brexit clock is ticking. it should be done by october of 2018. we do have the transitional phase. it is going to be a long time, i am afraid. jonathan: footing to people with knowledge of the matter, bank of overca executive divided where they want to hold the brexit.hub after how material will is ultimately be down the road after these negotiations have taken place? once we do have an established role of the u.k. will have -- that the u.k. will have. geoffrey: most businesses right now need to prepare accordingly.
7:38 am
no surprise that decisions are being made as they are. one area of interest in these reports is what is going to have into commercial real estate in london. hand, we know we are seeing a strong demand from tech firms for commercial real estate. there are always offsetting factors. let's bear in mind this is a dynamic process, not an absolute. we do not have to deal with absolutes when it comes to investment decisions. i wonder whether the bloomberg report raises a larger issue because people are saying this is not one hub but they are losing more than one. maybe we have another part in dublin because brian moynihan often stays in dublin. this digital age may be the case that we no longer have to have a place, because
7:39 am
we get it all done with digits anyway. david o: it is interesting, with the growing use of the internet and so forth, how the forces really do work. we all like to work on futures around the world. working forare their clients and their colleagues. i think that is more the case to the growing use of the internet. at the end of the day, brexit will imply it is more. generally popular. decisions will have to be made, and silver will be a key month for all of the management -- a december will be a key month for the management to make decisions. transitional relations play could way enough, and firms will have to have a cliff edge policy, which means more companies make most quicker. jonathan: that is the drink, isn't that? take it to the beach, drop it somewhere. also, i get cold so

earnings. david: china has been at the center of president trump's agenda since before he was elected. with demands in the trade relations, demands that the chinese get upgraded to give up nuclear weapons, and even as president trump try this week to help with you is investing, china plays a role because pakistan has increasing relations with china as well. what it is to lead a western country dealing with china, nobody knows more than kevin rudd does. he heads the asia society. welcome back, mr. prime minister. good to have you. kevin: good to be here. david: it all seems to lead back to china. new strategy in afghanistan, but we really need pakistan to help. do we have the pressure given the relations with china?
7:44 am
kevin: i think the president's approach to afghanistan is reasonable given what is on the ground and the taliban remains. so many brits contributed and lost their lives. present -- president just faced with the core reality that the whole afghanistan negotiation began with the city of new york, if you allow the taliban to take control again, qaeda, that isl the reality he is dealing with. i think his strategic direction timetable is no conditions-based approach, no public discussion, it is probably the right strategic method -- message to send to the taliban. but as you just said, what he is a to see from pakistan
7:45 am
plan inviting terrorists. holding u.s. military aid to pakistan, this is where your weight comes in, and that is increasingly china becomes a greater and greater supplier of military assistance to pakistan. road, ine belt, one whole other bunch of initiatives. you look at beijing, looking at ah, ington and saying ye think i can get through this. david: with one belt, one road, china is standing out. changeeally could geopolitically the status. kevin: i think below and beneath the whole public firmament of the global international relations debate at the moment, today's crisis and tomorrow's crisis, is flows can be rolled out of china on a footprint across the world.
7:46 am
one belt, one road is a trillion dollar initiative. in real dollar terms, significantly bigger than the marshall after the second world war, not just affecting pakistan. it is affecting iran, central and eastern europe, southeast asia. over time, you see a much greater degree of china's economic influence. david: so put that against president trump's approach, specifically with respect to china. he likes a bilateral deal. we talk about 5, 6 countries. he does not like multilateral. how do you deal bilaterally with china was north korea and trade with china, the same time, china is playing a multidimensional chess game throughout the region. kevin: china is an excellent strategist. they studied strategy professionally. chinese, when they approach negotiations with
7:47 am
president trump, literally, they are speaking five to 10 years out. he is five to 10 minutes out. therein lies the difference. for president trump, i think with the team he has got with mattis and general kelly, i think these are sophisticated folks. they will know that you can walk and chew gum, which is robust engagement with the chinese economic question, and not walking away from major trade conflicts expecting to resolve them and not disallow things to disappear. time, workinge out the long-term strategic deal, the grand bargain, i call it, on north korea, which is something that can only be done uno inmerao beijing. trade in lengthening north korea, and also linking with india as well, "you need to help us because we trade with you cocoa is that helpful when
7:48 am
it comes to china -- with you," is that helpful when it comes to china? kevin: traditionally comekevin: we keep the two boxes separate. if you look the way mar-a-lago was handled among they do that again. -- handled, they did that again. that the way in which, frankly, both sides for fear deal, because you are dealing with much more acute national equities, when it comes down to koreanss, will be north have mixed or not, and what is going to work, it is not so much how you segment the conversation , it is is there a grand bargain to be had. apparently there is, but it requires a level of trust between beijing and the washington administration. jonathan: this point, if you wrapped up the current situation and put in a box and went back
7:49 am
in time in january and headed into the chinese, they would be happy with that, wouldn't they? kevin: that is what i would call a fast-paced delivery just outside the office of trump. [laughter] david: it is symbolic. bad ati was always batting. i think the chinese are happy about this. mission, which is, one, rolling other economic interests throughout the world, and two, contesting the u.s. strategic place in u.s. asia is basically preceding on track. secondly, what is seen is u.s. strategic policy in some disagree for the -- disarray for the first several months of its of administration. departure, with grown-ups now giving direct policy advice to the president, i think maybe entering a different period.

david: steve bannon -- it is interesting that you mentioned him. what fundamentals as a politician come as a leader of the western country, you have to balance domestic pressures versus international. can president trump have a long term strategic relation with that is consistent tha with his base? kevin: that is another fastball up. it is a great question. number one, all international leadership has worked out probably in the last decade or so that traditional boxes, international, national, external, internal frankly it not worth a hill of beans anymore because what that market says right now is going to thect, for example, decision it might take effect tomorrow morning. that is the situation we deal

joining us now from stamford, connecticut, is liz anann sonders. let's start with that speech yesterday. is that something that should be of material concern to investors? liz ann: we went at this point that what a lot of trump said during the actual election campaign and even post election in a rally like this, more of a campaign rally than anything else, does not necessarily translate into reality. i think markets have learned to take a deep breath after some of these more bombastic comments knowing that is not necessarily what is going to happen. the threat of a government shutdown is a fairly serious thing. i don't think anybody wants that. it certainly would not be different markets. jonathan: i'm sure nobody ultimately once it, but is it ultimately what we are going to get? republicans controlled congress and the white house as well. will they come to any agreement before september? liz ann: the short answer is i
9:04 am
don't know, but i still think it's an the interest of both parties to get through the end of september without shutting the government down. i think we learned some valuable lessons from the events of 2011. i think both sides would not like to repeat that. david: explain one thing that i don't understand. election, the markets built up substantially and that was because of the promise of the new trump administration. that promise has been pushed to the side and yet markets have not come down. why? liz ann: first of all, i disagree that it was the result of the election that caused the market to go higher. i think the traditional fundamentals, but turn in economic growth not just in the u.s. but just as importantly overseas, the turn and the leading indicator and leading pmi's, the turn from a four consecutive quarter earnings session for u.s. profitability to a string of very strong quarters come all of that, those
9:05 am
inflection points predated the election. if you believe that, it helps to explain why the market has not gone into a more significant corrective phase given what it best a push off from these program policies. it is a turn of the fundamentals that predated the election. not only that, but this continues to be a massive liquidity story. when you have money supply not just the united states and global growing faster than nominal and real gdp, that money has to find a place to go and it's finding its way to equities. those are not politically oriented reasons why the market has gone up and makes plan why the market has not tanked on some of these concerns. david: let me ask you. coming off this earnings season, which was a really good one following a really good one before that, it looks like stocks beating on both the topline line earnings are not getting the credit for it. we put up a chart here that will describe to you the top line.
9:06 am
the white line is companies that are beating on earnings and topline. the extent to which they get a pop in the first afterwards and you will see it has come down to zero. is that something we should be concerned about in equity markets? liz ann: that's the national discountingnatural that the markets represents an anticipation of earnings off that trough that we saw in the first half of 2016, i think a lot of the movement and stocks occurred in anticipation of that. second, we are in a tricky period seasonally, not only late summer or early fall tending to bring some weakness in the market, but for a variety of reasons, and i know you have talked about it on the program, i've talked about it quite a bit , but the year ending in seven phenomena. it has scene and nearly 10% correction plus in every year

ending the seven since the early 1900s. the weakness contents to be concentrated in this october-november time. we suggested that we were going to go through a consolidation phase and investors get more discerning and the phase like that. they don't necessarily reward the winners from an earnings standpoint. i think those are the three explanations for why we are not getting this used during the actual earnings season. i think we got it in anticipation that of. alix: i'm totally superstitiou s. i totally buy that theory. i always have bed years and even number years. jonathan: that exactly what she join this program. [laughter] david: good for her are good for us? jonathan: i don't know. alix: i talked to the biggest ball on the street and here is what he said, echoing your sentiments. >> on valuation, we fundamentally have a different view than a lot of people come which is as long as interest
9:08 am
rates are being pinned and credit markets remain under control and financial conditions are loose, equity rich premiums are arguably still too high. possibility0 as a at the end of the year on the s&p. are you that constructive? liz ann: we do not do your and targets. we think that's a bit of a silly exercise. understand a lot of traditional from top do that for the benefit of their clients, but i'm not sure coming up with a number where the market is going to close at the end of the year is a value. our latest view is that we are probably in a bit of a consolidation phase, but it's in the context of an ongoing secular bull market. i agree. valuation runs the gamut depending on what metric you're using. if you're looking dogmatically at pearson pull p/e ratios, the market does look expensive. if you're looking at schiller's cape, the market looks quite expensive. if you are looking at equity
9:09 am
risk premiums and applying an inflation filter to traditional pe metrics, the market looks fairly reasonably valued. atould call it medium level today's level of both inflation and interest rates. unless we see a significant ship quickly and that piece of this, i think valuation is not a deterrent for equities eventually moving higher after we get out of this consolidation phase. alix: in order to be consistently constructive, you have to have a view on gdp and this is where we tight back to politics. if you have a 2% long-term view, how much more can multiple rerate higher? if you see three or 4%, that's a different story. liz ann: keep in mind that we have had a subpar, new normal secular stagnation, post that super cycle 2% kind of growth for this entire bull market. that has not prevented this from being what i think is an ongoing secular bull market. it is may be as simple as the goldilocks phenomenon of decent economic growth low enough though that you do not end up with an inflation problem and a
9:10 am
federal reserve that has tighten monetary policy significantly. the liquidity that brings into the marketplace i think versus. persists. be careful what you wish for and hoping for stronger growth from here because with that would come higher inflation and much tighter monetary policy and bring us closer to the end of the cycle. from an economic standpoint, from a consumer in america, i do not love a 2% growth environment. it certainly has not been a problem for the stock market. i think a little bit of a lift here particularly on the capital spending side of the economy would be good and a sense that maybe it continues to move companies away from buying back their own stock toward making long-term capital investments, which started this year. exceptionally strong growth has tended not to because of the stock market because back to the earnings point, stocks are leading indicator and anticipate inflection points. ann will be staying with us.

9:13 am
david: this is bloomberg. i'm david westin. we will hear from janet yellen as she addresses fellow policymakers in jackson hole, wyoming. the question is what she will say and what it will mean for investors. sonders is still with us. one of the thing supporting the stock market is a great deal of liquidity around the world. that generally perceived the fed and the ecb and maybe
9:14 am
the boj should start withdrawing some of that liquidity. to what extent will that have direct effects that we can predict because we have never been in this position before. predicting hask always been a difficult exercise and i would not attempt to do this when we start this process of quantitative tightening because to your point we have not done this before. befores never been tried as an experiment and this is uncharted territory. that said, the fed clearly at this stage is taking a methodical approach an initial phase of starting to shrink the balance sheet is somewhat limited. the benign scenario is that it happens over and extended time that is not necessarily disruptive markets. that may be a slightly naive assumption because monetary policy mistakes, if you want to call it that, by the federal reserve are other central banks getting too tight or behind the curve have been contributors to major market .vents to economic problems
9:15 am
to assume it's going to be completely different this time is a bit of a naive a something. i think it's very difficult predict. i do not think we will get much more from yellen in terms of details. think they will hold off on a rate hike. it will be interesting to hear from mario draghi with a few hints to moving back on their version of quantitative easing. i think that is a factor that has been a bit of a volatility driver in the reason why we are in this consolidation phase. at this point i would not call it the end of the world. david: the fed has not said how they're going to do it, but there have been suggestions in the minutes of a long-term plan. it will go over several years compelling that approach to what we may be seeing with the ecb. we will get to the rest of it later. liz ann: they are not told us much at this point and there
9:16 am
and they are not at the face of quantitative tightening it. that is one of the reasons we have seen the weakness in the dollar because of that differential between the u.s. central bank and other central banks starting to narrow and the mindset of investors. that has more of a factor in the currency markets to this point as it has an equity markets. there may even be more years than what mario draghi has to say and what jamie l has to say because it's more of an academic discussion about financial stability. as it relates to yellen, it will be interesting to see if she talked about asset prices and the concerns that many have that we may be in some sort of asset bubble here. i think that is going to be the focus of bit more on what comes out of the u.s. federal reserve's comments. jonathan: how do you interpret the current tension between the concerns about loose financial
9:17 am
conditions and was happening with market pricing and what is happening with inflation dynamics? it's very hard to manage both of those things when they seem to be moving against the fed different ways. liz ann: the fed's stated mandate on inflation is tied to traditional measures of inflation and particularly pce more so than cpi. the concern to your point in the question is that we have inflation in other areas, asset inflation. i personally think it's a concern. it's a concern that is felt by many. easy monetary policy over the last many years has contributed to this divide certainly from an income standpoint. this boost in asset prices has not been to the benefit of the broader economy, but to those asset holders. whether the fed decides that the bubble it wants to proactively prick, i'm not sure that's the case.
9:18 am
maybe they are using words to ease the pressure on those asset prices, but it's absolutely a factor that has come about by virtue of free rounds of quantitative easing in the fed taking its balance sheet to $4.5 trillion. how it ultimately ends whether it's a benign serio or extreme one, i wish a new. -- nine scenario or an extreme one i wish i knew. david: what it has done in terms of the growing disparity about the rich and poor, what it shows i will describe to you is the yellow line. this is income off of assets. the white line is s&p. they both have gone up dramatically since 2009. there is a blue line the hovers around the same level of growth and that is household median income. what this shows basically is that people making money off assets have been doing much better and people earning regular wages are not. is this an indictment on the whole qe approach that it did not get the economy going for us? liz ann: i think that is.

if you want to indict things for what they have done, that is the easiest mark. we have seen every measure of asset inflation. if you look at household net worth relative to where we are in the economy, not just because of what the stock market has done and other financial markets, but also the other biggest component of household net worth is real estate. not quite the appreciation we have had into the real estate bubble until 2006. it sufficient enough that you have those two things together and it has been to the great in a fit of those asset owners. the one thing i will say about the pure income-based measures of disparity, one of the problems that exists though is that a lot of the lower income folks don't calculate and the transferred benefits that are put into start to narrow that divide. --hink the map sometimes math sometimes of the loaded off by virtue of that. alix: you are going to be sticking with us.

building for hours outside of the park avenue building in midtown manhattan. there's a group of reporters and samsung brought a bus full of note 7 loyalists just to come to the event. accident extremely important event because this is the latest no device since the last one was recalled after reports of exploding and catching on fire. samsung has been given a clear second chance by consumers and the stakes are incredibly high for samsung to prove that the phone is reliable and much better than the last one. alix: they brought them in on a bus. jonathan: a lot of people are cynical about this whole thing and skeptical. they believe that people are paid to stephen news lines. we are finding out that their bust and. alix: joining us now is ramon llamas. we are laughing at it and it's fun to make fun of the bus and the phone lighting on fire, but how material is this launch for
9:24 am
samsung? ramon: they want to put it behind them and then the rearview mirror. they will bring up how safe it is in all the multi-point safety inspections and move on. that next step for moving on is showing the brand-new flagship device. if you're playing in busloads of note 7 users, great idea. they did not have an upgrade last year. here's your chance to do it. here's the fun that you have been waiting for maybe about two years. for most people in the u.s., we are at a two-year cycle replacement rate. this is the perfect time. alix: what do we know about the phone as of yet? selena: so we are expecting it to be even larger than the last one. the note line is the tories lead big and even compared to tablets at more than six inches. we are expecting upgraded camera and probably some other bells and whistles to compete with the iphone. a new version is supposed to come out in just a month or so.
9:25 am
alix: how critical is it to samsung's bottom line? i take it with this chart on bloomberg and it's the ratio price target for analysts subtracted for the traded price over the last year. analysts are much more bullish on the stock when it's trading. why is that? ramon: not just because of this entire note line. that is one tiny piece of the overall symptom picture. if you take a look at their phone and media and semiconductors and televisions, this is a conglomerate involved with so many different pieces. is known as an innovator going in all the right directions. if you go with internet of things, samsung is there. it will be there in consumer places, enterprise places. all things considered, if you take a look at how explosive and bullish people are, i think it is warranted. it is not just phones. it's not just hardware. and software and platforms and services. there's a lot to like about
9:26 am
samsung. jonathan: how important is the launch and how material is it for samsung and for the iphone potential next month? how material is that for samsung? ramon: on a scale of one to 10, this is an 11. i don't mean to put that as hyperbole, but if you take a look at where samsung wants to play, it wants to be everywhere. it will not do that with just one device. historically with note phones, this is in for the android power user. things like the s8 plus that came out earlier this year are really for consumers. jonathan: thank you, sir. bloomberg selina wang not paid to be outside the simpson store at all. we are counting down to the opening bell. you are watching bloomberg tv. ♪

trump? earnings are trickling out and some of them are quite interesting. salesforce front and center. we can show that stock to see where trading and it should be down by 2% or so. it is now down 610 to 1%. earnings were better, but it's building and ended up being disappointing. lebron 11% -- around 11%. upkage consumer goods make 30% of their revenue and those guys while the pulling back on advertising. sir martin sorrell will be joining us to discuss. american eagle up by 10% in premarket. women's apparel actually helping them. same-store sales rising and a quarter of a revenue comes from online. one positive retail glimmer in earnings. i was really fascinated by a chart by credit suisse. he had this out yesterday and i
9:32 am
wanted to take a look at the world index consensus for earnings estimates. you can see here that they just had about $30 earnings per share. we have only seen that about three times so far since the financial crisis. you can make the argument that when you hit three dollars a share that you saw a big move and that was the financial crisis, but we also saw another down move when we hit it in 2011 and again in 2014 when he saw another down move. the question is it is a potential for another down move that we had that during dollars earnings per share estimate? aboutit as he is talking that perhaps this time it is actually different? n.nathan: let's talk to liz an i doubt she will disagree with them. have we reached peak optimism in terms of forecast? liz ann: i don't think so. i think to extend out
9:33 am
double-digit earnings growth in perpetuity is probably a bit of a stretch. i think the estimates right now for the u.s. growth, 2017 is up 11%, the same for 2018. i think that is easy to do unless we get to the circumstance we discussed, which is if growth picks up too much and the fed is tightening policy more quickly than right now, it will change the outlook. jonathan: is this sort of paving the way from small caps more toward the large caps? why? liz ann: we made that move back in march and there are several reasons for it. the earnings trajectory which we the been talking about -- outlook for earnings for large caps is actually a couple percentage points larger than small caps. small caps are trading at a premium to large cap. why would you pay a premium for a subset of the market that has lower expected earnings growth? if you look at the technicals of small caps, they have been
9:34 am
making lower highs and lower lows. you have seen that deterioration in some of the underlying technicals as well as threat conditions. when you look at the broader macro fundamentals that support small caps, i think tax reform, that had been -- the prospects for tax reform had been to the benefit of small caps. the fact that it has got pushed further out, it is more likely a 2018 story than the 2017 story. the weakness in the dollar has been to the benefit of large-cap stocks. a lot of things have conspired to really knock small caps out of their position that they held really just for a short time coming out of the election for the one month after. he saw that huge surge and they have given back all those gains and then some. we think the biases toward large caps. they are more defense of large caps, which is where you want to be right now in the short-term. david: if you are projecting out continued earnings growth, what would be the fundamentals underlying that?
9:35 am
it does not look like it's going to be a dramatic uptick in demand. is it further stock buybacks? is it cost-cutting? what is going to drive that earnings growth? liz ann: we are starting to see buybacks wane. the problem would be if you did not see anything pickup that slack, but you are seeing it on the capital spending said. the fact that companies are starting to take this excess cash and put it toward longer-term capital investments more recently the biases been in the interview sector -- energy sector. i think we will see a bit more broadly in the economy as you see tighter labor markets that need to continue to invest in productivity and efficiency boosting measures. i think that is to the benefit of longer-term outlook on earnings-per-share. i certainly don't hope that we have to rely on buybacks looking ahead to support the kind of earnings growth that is in place for 2018. maybe importantly i want to point out that a lot of people
9:36 am
think that earnings are likely -- earnings expectations are likely to come in if we do not get tax reform. for the most part, analyst and not build any numbers into the expectations for tax reform. it is not like we have to pull those out of expectations. that really would represent purely upside if we actually get something done on that front because it was not added into forward-looking expectations. david: talk about the capital investment and its connection with productivity. you are saying capital investment is picking up and you expect productivity to kick back and. has beenink this is in th a temporary respite? liz ann: i think productivity has been at least a little understated by the virtue of the age in which we live in the way our economy operates, which is very different from 50-60 years ago. when the calculus was put in for how we regulate nonfarm productivity, it has really not changed since its original founding of that formula.
9:37 am
when you think of how different the economy is as we have moved from manufacturing oriented economy to a digital economy how the sale is handle, how aaro airbnb is the largest lodging company in the world and think of apps that do navigation and whether or not that has helped your own personal productivity. by virtue of that, gdp and productivity are mildly understated. even if they are understated, you're talking about a fairly low level of productivity. this entire up cycle of the economy, i think we may be getting to that point where we are at an inflection. david: think you very much for being with us today. oday, the shareholders of whole foods market will get to vote on that purchase by amazon.com, something announced back on june 16.

--ws the grocery shares of the grocery chain have jumped and remained steady could will investors like it as much as the market does? joining us now is jennifer who it for us. i will start with the regulatory question. is there an antitrust issue here? jennifer: it does not look likely. this is likely ftc review rather than doj. , thethey tend to look for type of deals that usually cause harm our deals between two competitors and we do not have that here. these two companies essentially don't compete. the other deal that can sometimes cause heart but rarely is a vertical deal. you can think of these two companies is having a vertical relationship. you have a grocery store and a distributor of groceries. those kind of deals can cause harm if they foreclose other
9:39 am
competitors out there at either level, the upstream or downstream level. what you need in that case is dominance, high market shares of one of those levels. you don't have that here. whole foods is not a dominant grocery store chain and you don't have amazon as a dominant deliver of groceries. david: yet. jennifer r.: that's right. david: might that reduce some of the value of this purchase? given its growing position if not dominance in the online sales area in general, could they be forced to actually distribute other groceries than just whole foods? jennifer r.: at least in terms of this deal and whether they have to enter into some sort of concession or remedy, making that kind of behavioral commitment, that's unclear. maybe the regulators here under pressure will ask them to do something like that. for this deal, that is unlikely and possibly in the future deal, they might need to do something with that. alix: if you take a look what
9:40 am
happened to whole foods competitors, kroger drop off a cliff and has not recovered. what is next for those guys? jennifer b.: plays next is those retailers are really focused on improving the online game. and they are taking share. what a lot of people overlooked when this deal was announced and it really has not come back to the likes of program wal-mart yet is that kroger and walmart already have a dominant position in online grocery in the united states. amazon will be fighting an uphill battle. the acquisition of whole foods brings amazon to more suburban areas but not that many in all honesty. 40% of whole foods locations are in urban areas. there's a lot of runway before program wal-mart really feel the pressure from amazon. jonathan: anyone that gets their food delivered by whole foods will note that it's actually is so cart -- it is a
9:41 am
instacart. for anyone who think amazon is doing the delivery for whole foods, that is compensated. how will they w deal with that contract? jennifer b.: the contract extends for another few years, but that is explicit to produce and perishables. there may be a way for amazon to work shelfstable items like cereal and can goods. that is part of why amazon fresh is not going to be able to just instantly say powered by whole foods. part of what amazon wanted to get out of this deal is expertise in perishables. that if the cart contract could be a barrier to amazon fresh being able to accelerate operations. jonathan: jennifer quickly come is this vote today and on event? -- is this vote today a nonevent? jennifer b.: i do not think anybody is expecting any surprises here. david: many thanks to the two jennifer's. jonathan: 12 minutes into the

9:46 am
the combination of research and the policy regulators, had married that research together. they over learned what mistakes they had done and changed their models to accommodate that. the one thing they did miss was the interaction of the financial system. not only being able just to control the inflation rates without taking account of financial markets and the like. idea thatabout the obviously quantitative easing programs that were put in place 7-2008 in the united states and in 2012 or so when he became president of the european , theal bank here in europe effectiveness and how he felt that that helped stabilize the economy and at the same time
9:47 am
allowed for there to be economic growth in europe. jonathan: some people argue that the solution to the previous crisis is the source of a potential problem in the future. at the moment we have this tension between the loose financial conditions and asset valuations. has thether hand, he soft inflation prints. how will that resolve in the coming months and what can central bankers ultimately do about it? myron: they obviously have a problem in the sense that as quantitative easing was an in our times, quantitative tightening will be an experiment in our modern times. that means they have to decide at what rate and how they have to produce the large balance sheets that they currently have second is how that plays with increasing rates. i think at the current time, the markets tend to be sanguine in
9:48 am
the sense. let's watch them of all that process of reducing the balance sheet and increasing rates. my view is that the threat of inflation tends to be muted and that gives them more degrees of toedom to experiment and reduce the balance sheet size and not do it precipitously or with the great threat associated with inflation hanging overhead. alix: after mario draghi's speech, it seems like the trade was that you want to short bund s with the trade that played out in the u.s. the last two months as well. is that your base case? is that the smartest way to go into friday speech into an ecb taper world? myron: not really in my opinion . i think basically after the
9:49 am
trump election and the united states, there was a great believe in changes in policy for capital investment. and deregulation changes tax rules and infrastructure spending was a growth impetus for the market, and also with the inflation may be a steady increase in rates. obviously we have seen over the last period of time that rates and thated to fall off the view is the u.s. might be in a weaker position than europe. the market tends to be signaling strength in the euro and yen and the weakness in the dollar at the same time thinking there could be an increase in rates within the real rate within the euro land to greater extent than in the u.s. it's really more so that it will
