by monday at 2:00 a.m., a category one storm. that may be why we have seen various estimates, including one reducing estimates of damages from $200 billion to 48 billions -- $48 billion. >> it is a movable feast, isn't it, as we assess that different kinds of damage to property. there are households without power and some may go without power for weeks to come. some of this infrastructure damage will need to be built from the ground up. we will be talking to a real estate developer with property in miami and get his take. in the meantime, let's look at how futures are trading.
friday, pretty much mixed up, jitters around what would happen with hurricane irma. the evening futures trading higher, up .3%, so a slight rebound from what we saw on friday, perhaps relief from investors that we did not get much noise out of north korea either. reports that the leader is throwing a party for his key nuclear scientists. pyongyang as opposed to a missile tests, but north korea still in the forefront when it comes to risk events. the united nations seeking a council vote on draft resolutions were further sanctions. china and russia have expressed their doubts and push back against that. a bit of a mini risk rally for the greenback. thingsthat relief that

relief that things have not materialized quite as bad as we braced for, but on the ground, it is still looking pretty bad. >> it is looking pretty bad. where i am in orlando, it is getting worse. in the past hour, the wind has picked up considerably. there are tornado warnings in this area. the gusts are getting harder and harder, the rain now coming down in sheets instead of a steady, heavy downpour. that is the way we expected to continue over the evening. the storm is moving up the west coast, the peninsula. we are a little inland. 1:00 or 2:00 eastern time in the morning, it should be where tampa is, about one hour and 20 minutes west of where we are in orlando, so we will get the brunt of the storm right around then. at the moment, it is bad enough,
but getting worse. >> i want to jump in here. tell me about the evacuation effort. west.orm is moving does that mean there will be more people who will be unprepared for the storm? >> the short answer to that question is yes. of best thing the state florida did was order widespread evacuations. people who could have been in areas hard-hit by the storm evacuated. , some placesout like north of miami, miami beach, the storm is bad. you have seen the pictures. it is not as bad as it could have income of but it is better that they are safe and out of harms way than say in a place like miami right now, where the conditions are as you described
and as you have shown our viewers pretty awful. on the west coast of florida, the evacuation order in many cases did not come through until yesterday, but the storm is weakening, now a category two, and if it stays overland, it will continue to weaken comments of the risk to human life drops as the wind drops. there is still the potential for lots of damage and long-term repercussions. i want to play you an excerpt of my conversation with tampa's mayor yesterday when we were talking about how things will look, not tomorrow, but in the days and weeks ahead. >> for us, it is always the search. we are a low lying community on the water. if we had a category 3 that came up tampa bay, my office would be 15 feet underwater. i don't think that will be the case. that is what we train for. if tampa sees a search like
that, and it may yet happen, is very low city lying, so much of it will be underwater. clearing invested in the storm sewers, but have not upgraded their prompts. there is a great deal of public infrastructure that will be underwater and out of commission. large port. very that court could sustain damage. fuel supplies could be limited as a result. even if the storm passes and the people who evacuated in-depth safe, it is not the end of the story. thank you so much for that. stay safe. erik schatzker there for us in orlando. let's get you caught up to date with first word news. the u.s. has called for a un security council boat on monday to impose sanctions on north korea over its nuclear

online, they believe that third-quarter gdp could basically hit payrolls. the damage could hit the payrolls, hurt car sales, and cut .3% off third-quarter gdp growth. they also think that you will basically see a a lot of the losses from the third quarter made up in subsequent quarters. thee look at a quote from concerns out there, they do expect that there will be rebuilding that will make up for a lot of the losses. is, you talkon about impact on inflation, and we were talking about how well not deflationary, certainly a dis-inflationary play at what does that mean for the fed? >> the day to day will be getting may not be accurate over the next two months. they believe inflation will perhaps continue to weaken and there are efforts to raise rates will be stymied. the we have a coat -- quote from
william dudley. wet he believes is that when think about the impact of these storms, he says it will be hard to read the data and know what the data would have been if yo took out the hurricane. in terms of whether it will push back, wirp , highly likely if you listen to what the utley is saying. if you listen to bond traders, they don't believe there will be a rate hike before the end of the year. some big u.s. economic reports this week, especially on inflation, right? pricesation, consumer closely watch, also retail sales. let's go into some of the video and show pictures and some numbers of what will be expected. of retail sales, they
are expecting a big bump in august and believe that the inflation will continue below the fed projections. although towards the goal of fed policymakers. ,e have results coming out gasoline prices up 5% after the harvey damage because it hit the golf. -- the gulf. to core inflation tends cancel out feel prices. >> some distortions to come in the next couple of months. thank you so much for that. live at the we are investors form in hong kong with our exclusive interview with the chairman and ceo jonathan sloan and about ready minutes. next, we return our focus to the impact of hurricane irma. we will speak to one person who real extensively th
♪ relief for breath of u.s. markets and the dollar, more risk appetite than expected as hurricane irma continues to not ast, but devastatingly as expected. some upside when it comes to the tokyo open, nikkei futures pointing upwards by 30 points. beautiful tokyo ahead of the start of the trading week. this is "bloomberg markets: asia." >> no storm brewing there in tokyo. we had been talking about, tons of flooding, trees down from hurricane irma. turned miami's financial district into a river. that is a live picture of fort
myers, florida. research saying the storm could and almost $50 billion threatened to trillion dollars worth of property. their estimate had been up to $200 billion, but that might be little comfort for the pe company that holds real estate in miami. don peebles is joining us on the phone. safe. if you are your properties in miami in particular, what have you done to prepare for hurricane irma? officet, we closed our on tuesday in miami and encouraged our staff to take a vacation on the company so that no one lost any vacation time and encourage them to take as much time is they needed and work remotely once things settle down. we buttoned up our properties, my home.
what has happened is miami and south florida have an through this before with hurricane andrew. then again in 2004 and 2005. 2004, there were four named hurricanes that went to the miami area within six weeks, then katrina and wilma the following year. we are expecting consumable others of flooding and disruptions in terms of our power grid and so forth in south florida. interrupt youn to come a but what are some of the initial estimates from your people on those properties about the damage you are sustaining so far? >> we don't know yet. most of the cameras and all of out,ower has been knocked so things are operating with generators to a degree on a limited basis. you won't get a good assessment
of the damage there until tomorrow or the following day. there are a lot of cranes downtown. one has gone down, and i would expect several others to go down and have significant damage as a result. have an impact on the economy, and i don't know if it will necessarily be negative for auto sales because the insurance companies will be settling a lot of total loss claims on cars, but rebuilding will be a big challenge because all of a sudden you will be taking miami for example, downtown miami took and now webuild up, will have to rebuild a large part of that. there will be huge demand on materials and labor, so there will be a stimulation in the economy. when it comes to building materials, i would expect to see dramatic price increases between
tampan and florida in certainly not ready for this. you are expecting to see distortions across the data in all sorts of ways, many of which we have not anticipated. you own these properties in miami beach and say you are waiting to get an estimate of the damage and the cost of rebuilding. does this kind of event make you consider -- reconsider your business holdings in areas like this? through thisent before and were delivering buildings in 2004 in 2005 that were near completion. the market rebounded relatively quickly, but not as much as it would have been expected. and the state of florida are seen as a growing market with good structural fundamentals like no state income tax, so we will continue
to invest there. one of the challenges in terms of rebuilding their and in houston is the availability of insurance because these insurance carriers will be hit extremely hard, and so what is the cost of insurance? impedimente biggest to new construction after hurricane katrina and wilma went through florida. that made it much more difficult to do new buildings in the early years after that because the insurance rates went up so dramatically, but they have now stabilize, and unfortunate they up, and thatk will be a big impediment. >> has opposed to a public servant come if you will, how much would that do to you as an investor from making investments in the area? you say you know what to prepare for, but the fact this has happened and you have to go through that cycle of rebuilding and potentially the premiums
could be quite debilitating, in particular for smaller businesses in the area, so will that cast a shadow over investment in this region? do.eah, i i think unfortunately that there is not going to be enough labor .ool to go around to rebuild the availability of materials will be difficult. the availability of insurance will be difficult. so what that says is that there are other places to go and do business. i run a national company, so we are developing all over the country and will deploy more resources elsewhere where we can get a rapid return. florida will be a grind out recovery and discourage a lot of investment. the people who were in hurricane katrina in new orleans, they left and went to other parts of the country, but did not come back. that will happen again in houston and miami, then most likely rebuild backup. it will take time.
>> i want to squeeze in this question about donald trump and how you think he has done and what you think about the business community losing their confidence and trump. earlier on, you had voices some support for him. now what do you think about his performance and the business community losing confidence in him? i think the president has had difficulty in some regards of tempering his style to being the president of the united states, and so a lot of that that we see is style. i thought that him making an agreement with the democrats on the debt ceiling and the relief package for harvey was a very positive step. i am hopeful and optimistic that he will work with democrats more often and take away some of the partisanship, so i have not lost confidence. i think he has made some mistakes in terms of style.
what happenedat in charlottesville, i thought he could have handled that better. countryople, the elected a freewheeling entrepreneur who has less discipline and less structure, so we will have to see. i think we have to give him another year to see where things are. >> thank you for joining us. peebles.es -- this is bloomberg. ♪

have been doing in the middle of the storm. fema has been incredible. we are working with the governor's in surrounding states. onerik schatzker joins us the line, reporting on this hurricane. president trump was just saying that the evacuation emergency efforts were well coordinated. does it feel that way in florida? >> it does. they started early and got a lot of people out of the area a couple of days ago. i have seen quite a number of them here in orlando. start on theower west coast because initially we that the hurricane would track up the east coast of hard to thetead it northern coast of cuba before turning northward and hitting the florida keys this morning, and now it is 25 kilometers as east,0 p.m. eastern time
istheast of ft. myers, which southwest of where i am in orlando, but making its way up the coast. the wind speeds have slowed to , 105ilometers are our miles per hour, but the storm is moving faster, which may be a good thing, pushing up the coast and not sitting in place drenching this part of the state with more rain. in terms of the economic fallout, the damage is a movable feast with these estimates. cutting down that damage to $49 billion. what are we seeing so far in terms of the damage an impact, florida being a key agricultural state as well? >> the principle crop growing
areas have not been affected yet. southern florida is largely the everglades, so if you go west from miami, you are in the tropical bush. we know that miami has been inundated by a substantial storm surge and wind pushing that water around. there is undoubtedly some significant damage in miami, and a lot of people in that part of the state who have lost power. has some highys value property, hotels, and key west, sustained catastrophic damage. it willylight tomorrow, be difficult for anybody to come up with a reasonable assessment. the same goes for southwestern florida, marco island about the everglades, naples and ft. myers have been slammed this afternoon by wind.
that was still a category three storm in the naples area. probably only now that the storm surge, which may be the most devastating and damaging part of the storm, is hitting that part of the florida coast. what tends to to happen as the storm moves north, the wind leads the storm, and then the storm surge comes in behind. if the storm surge arrives in conjunction with high tide, which is what is expected to happen in the tampa bay area, it could be that much more damaging. that's when you get the water pushing inland than it might otherwise because it is combined with a high tide. that is what tampa is really worried about. a category two storm may not do that much damage to buildings, but the flooding from storm surge certainly could. comingppreciate to you
to us in orlando. we will watch the latest out of hurricane irma. the other side of the story is that the storm has taken a last-minute term and areas not as prepared were evacuated, so we won't watch that story. president trump said the recovery will cost a lot of money and the hard part is only just beginning. let's get it over to jodie snyder in hong kong. has trump accomplished a bit of a bipartisan movement. >> he got democrats to vote for this bill, but he lost 90 republicans because he made a deal with the democrats. basically he tied hurricane relief to raising the debt ceiling through december and passing a spending bill through early december as well. really frustrated and angered republicans who had hoped for a long-term debt theyng increase, therefore
were very frustrated the president made the deal with the democrats. votes ongh you had both sides, 90 republicans voting against the bill of their own president does not show a lot of faith in this process. backpublicans are coming with an alternate obamacare replacement, so what are the prospects for this will? to severallong shot senators came up with this proposal that they would like to sed that would repeal and replace obamacare and send money to the state to pay for insurance. it has some support. house speaker paul ryan said he liked some things about the bill. there are not a lot of days for voting this month. that this is something would face hurdles, including senator john mccain's requirement that any bill go through so-called regular order, which would mean some things
that would take a long time, so while there is interest in this, it is a long shot and nobody expects it to happen, especially not quickly. dare i ask about the tax overhaul plan and what is the likely timeline now with so many distractions on the agenda? was always going to be hard to do a tax reform will. tax reform has not then done since 1986. with republicans frustrated with the president right now, it makes it harder, so people are saying it is a long shot and nobody expects a major bill this year. >> thank you so much. , inflationary pressure from the factory of the world is proving to be more resilient than economists had estimated, and analysis from j.p. morgan later. , the dollar has

else, has that really changed around the risk event of north korea? not really. north korea takes a long in the background. ticks along in the background. chinese numbers are not that important. that were numbers sustainable from a fundamental basis, we would have reason for genuine optimism, and they are back looking, not forward-looking. >> you say everyone has a view on north korea. and you suspect the chinese growth story is not sustainable? >> north korea is a mess. are a number of military experts who say there is no easy solution. whatever solution we have is not a happy one. if we stumble along, we have intermittent nuclear launches,
which is very worrying for all of us because it raises the ante each time that something may go wrong. weekendr alternative is up with war because of foam us does not appear to realistic. deal do see some kind of struck where the u.s. agrees to de-escalate and gradually steps back and north korea comes down its rhetoric, the message being sent by north korea to the rest of the world is that this strategy works and you can push the u.s. out of asia by threatening it with nuclear weapons. south korea and japan would turn around and say, does the u.s. have our back? they would have to start thinking about arming themselves with nuclear weapons, so i don't think a sigh of relief for 24 hours because we did not get a nuclear launch over the weekend is in t anyway good news. >> markets have in pretty sanguine.
it has been a counterintuitive seen great to see money going even that riskut off bit has not been as strong as you might expect. is it that we expect the saber rattling and people buying the dip? >> pretty much. if you step away from the yen , for markets in general, we are seeing a split who are holding their nose, closing their eyes, putting their fingers and there is, and following the trends, and they know everything stinks on a fundamental basis. that is with the money is going, and frankly stupid money. when you have those forces moving in the same direction, it is hard to resist. there is much more to be worried about them optimistic. >> we were speaking with jonathan sloan in the last hour.
he said there is a lot of misunderstanding about what is , particularlyia china. i want to play you part of that interview. >> china is always too hot or too cold for people. china is doing fine right now. some of the reforms are in place. the policies in place are taking shape. this part of the world is in good shape. >> is the story misunderstood, michael? he is talking complete rubbish, but then everyone is allowed their view, aren't they? what reform process? everyone talks about reforms in china and deleveraging. concrete,e any practical reforms. there aren't any. ands a wonderful rhetoric we don't have anything happening on the ground. that does not mean everything in china is a disaster. china is a vast continental
economy and there are pockets of dynamism and excellent scum and i don't tonight that for a moment. macro picture is extremely worrying and all the growth, good as it is coming is being driven by death. death is far too high, and death is beginning to increase. has recently put out a research paper showing the fiscal deficit in china should incorporate the central government and local government is 14% of gdp. not 1.4%, not 4%, but 14%. that's the kind of deficit to run during a war. that is insane. we had a guest of last week who i would say is your bosom buddy and would completely agree with your assessment on china. he is expecting a huge devaluation in the chinese yuan, upwards of 40% to 70%.
given your quite bearish outlook on china, you think something like that is likely? >> if they don't change course, that will happen at some point it timing is always the issue. you would not want to fight with the pboc. they cheat and change the rules of the game all the time. it is a fool's game to go head-to-head with them. if you take a step back objectively, rationally, not trying to trade or have a political stance and you just bt trajectorye and the lack of reforms and compare that with every experience of every other country in the world and you say, this will not end well. do have a lot of people who come on and say yes, there is a huge debt problem and china needs to work through them, but they always go back to come of this is china, it is a tightly controlled economy with huge reserves. i'm bringing in that
counterpoint. what do you say to that? >> in that case, why aren't we all communists? it is communism the is doing it. maybe we all should be. maybe should be adopting a chinese system and set up an investment bank and print money to give people money to do it. >> i take it you will get a lot of phone calls after this. we have a lot more ahead. this is bloomberg. ♪

will remove these reserve requirements on trading foreign currency forward. is this a signal you think in pboc ist finally the doing something and they are really concerned about the rise of the chinese currency? >> indeed. we have seen some acceleration in the renminbi against the dollar, especially the past two weeks. what we have been seeing is firstly that u.s. dollar trend is on the downside and has supported the cny. on the domestic side, we are seeing a better than expected growth action or, especially the comeback of nominal gdp growth, and therefore concerns on the risk of growth to the downside has come down for china and people see a lower growth risk from china as a result. these factors all come into help support the cny. stabletion to relatively
external signs, capital outflows have slowed in the past couple of months, so all this comes together to support the yuan, and from that respective taking a step back to give more freedom in terms of the capital flow direction going forward is actually a better move over all in terms of the renminbi market. >> if you talk to our prior believes thatho any idea that the chinese economy is stabilizing or the outlook looks better and the risks are reduced are in his words "complete rubbish." i want to play for you a comment from another china bear we interviewed last week who talked this isw he believes all being manufactured by the chinese government and we will see a big unwind in the chinese currency. we already started to see it
happening in 2015 with the yuan 4% devaluation we had at that has, but since then, china only expanded bank credit even more. now we have this national party congress event coming up in a few weeks. i think that china has deliberately expanded credit ahead of this event and stabilize the currency, but this event could prove to be the catalyst for the unwinding. unwinding, for the what do you say to that, grace? >> indeed, that upcoming party congress is an important political event this year. that from our perspective, we do see the party congress as more of a political event, where as on the economic policy side what we are more likely to see post and after the congress is a continuation of the policy, i.e. ongoing focus
ascontaining financial risks well as pushing out further in terms of of the such as soa reforms and so on, so what we do see is a continuation of the current policy rather than a significant turn of trend in terms of policy. so from that perspective we would say the macro policy would be more dependent on where the economy is going and where the data is going rather than that particular event. kicking the can down the road in terms of keeping policy aimed at stability, but not really being able to do anything about the systemic risks that have held up to such an enormous extent within the banking system, the regional banks in particular? wealth management products, shadow banking? >> indeed. to be fair, a better growth trend, especially in terms of the return of somewhat stronger
nominal gdp growth it is important in view of the medium-term risks in terms of financial leverage and so on. the fact that we have come back to a better growth picture and better nominal gdp growth helps to contain the near term credit risks in the economy, and we are seeing those coming out from the banking sector numbers. going forward, the important thing is exactly that we push further for the current policy, including pushing out the soe reforms and managing the financial risks overall going toward, and a stable macro growth picture as a background is important to provide that window of opportunity to push harder on the reform side, therefore containing the medium-term risks. >> if you look at the bigger picture when it comes to china's
the yuan, using as an example, isn't that two steps back and they are exerting more control as opposed to letting it become more market-oriented? >> i think that is a fair comment in that since 2015 with the depreciation in the renminbi and the worsening of sentiment on the macro picture overall, we have seen the government take back some of the openings of the market. in terms of capital flow, for instance, we have seen a continued push for capital to come into china, but on the outflow side, you have seen measures trying to slow the outflow. again, that perspective, if we are seeing improvement in terms of the out low and the sentiment with regard to the currency, it should open up of that the bit more room for them to introduce more symmetric, to
wait liberalization of flows, rather than having one way inflow. >> all right, we shall wait and see. thank you so much for that. economist china coming to us from hong kong. coming up, the deadline when planning to end the sale of cars powered by fossil fuels. we will look at the winners and inevitable losers next. this is bloomberg. ♪

wayes ability to change the we interact with technology isn't new. ever since customers got their hands on the very first iphone, the market has been revolutionized. the smartphone has proven to be the undisputed king of apple products, and in turn, revolutionize an entire echo ecosystem and spurring new arrivals across the globe. the iphone also open the door to a large chunk of the company's revenue, apps. sales have generated $100 billion in gross revenue for apple with more than 16 million developers worldwide producing apps from uber to snapchat. the launch of the iphone did not just change the way people work and socialize, it also transformed the company itself. apple grew by every dimension with staff of around 18,000 pre-iphone to a workforce of 116,000 in 2016.
toes went from $19 billion over $215 billion in 2016. since its launch, apple has sold one point 3 billion iphones, generating more than $800 billion in revenue, blowing other iconic devices out of the water, including nintendo's game boy and the sony walkman. with the iphones astronomical growth rate comes heavy dependence. the iphone makes up 63% of apple's revenue, making it the company's most crucial product by far. some heavyweights are sounding the alarm on the future of smartphones. peter thiel saying of the device that it is not an area where there will be any more innovation. it is clear that tim cook sees things differently. >> i think we are just getting started. i am incredibly excited, and clearly there is nothing that

the more interesting one is the iphone x. at this point, we don't know what the x stands for, but one good guess maybe this is the 10th anniversary of the iphones andt, so it is marking that a hint towards the future as well. >> so much is made about the the that it will, one of models will cost $1000 or more. will that be a tough sell? >> it hasn't proven to be so in the past. apple is able to command a premium on its products and its high-end phones have always been able to attract plenty of buyers , even at a price that would not work for any other smartphone manufacturer, so yes, the reports are that the top end iphone x will cost more than don't but at this point i
think anybody will be turned away by the price when given the chance to get their hands on at least what apple thinks is the latest and greatest new technology. >> what about the chinese lucky, a crucial one, how number eight is it likely to be in that market? >> that is a really good point. that could help sell the more conventional upgrades that apple will put on the market. in terms of price, it is no thet that while way chinese manufacturers are able to produce smartphones at a much lower cost to the iphone. plenty of market share in the mainland that reflects that, but still, apple
is just as much a marketing company as it is a manufacturing concern, and so that is always a premiumet it charge because people like to be seen with the latest and greatest , supporting an apple with a bite mark in it. >> thank you so much. our asia technology editor on the big event on tuesday. one feature on our bloomberg we would like to bring to your attention is our interactive tv .unction at tv you can watch us live, see previous interviews and dive into securities or functions we talk about. this is for bloomberg subscribers only. check it out at . -- tv . this is bloomberg. ♪
