tv Bloomberg Surveillance Bloomberg September 13, 2017 4:00am-7:00am EDT
this is "bloomberg surveillance" and i'm francine lacqua in london. we are just getting some breaking news from the oil markets. its 2017 lifting growth demand estimate to the strongest in two years. this is significant because we heard, i guess from insiders that opec, along with its allies, are also said to be discussing expanding cuts by more than three months. what does that mean for oil? the iaea says the strongest global oil demand growth in two years. brent, $54.32. we will be speaking, right here on "surveillance." in the meantime, it is time for you data check. we saw gains over the last couple days.
these stocks are definitely rallying. treasury yields are declining. the dollar snapping a two day advance. i will show you crude and the pounds, ahead of the u.k. jobs data at 9:30. reporter: apple has unveiled its $1000 iphone, which features of rented reality and facial recognition technology. the company also rolled out an updated apple watch and tv box. the product announcements were greeted with enthusiasm, but little surprised by analysts. the shares are down 0.4%. president trump will visit china in november. tensions flare on the korean peninsula. that is according to persons familiar with his plan. he will attend summits in
vietnam and the philippines. jp morgan's ceo says he would fire any employee for being so stupid. the currency is a fraud, and will not end well. he says the revenue is on pace to drop 20% from one year ago, the bigger decline from the 15% to klein forecast by citigroup. >> this group is not related to the business you run. you are trying to have a good trade and make sure you are on the right set of the market. we have an exceptional business. it will be down around 20%, something like that this quarter. last quarter for us one year ago was a particularly good quarter. reporter: in germany angela merkel will offer wolfgang schaeuble another term as finance minister if elected. --y say will think schaeuble they say wolfgang schaeuble has signaled his interests in
keeping his job after the election. f divorce talks have been rescheduled for next week. they will now gather on september 25. as theresas seen may makes her speech on public strategy. global news 24 hours a day, powered by 2700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries around the world. i'm taylor riggs. this is bloomberg. francine: thank you. you are also looking at live pictures of the european commission. president junker, giving his state of the union speech in strasberg. this is what we are seeing. he is in talking about -- he has been talking about what it means being european. he has also been saying that europe is doing better, both in terms of economic things, and political things.
it seems he is talking a little bit about brexit. we were briefed that he might not address brexit so far. he says brexit is not the future of europe. we will keep a close eye on juncker talking for his state of the union address. we will keep watch on anything he might they in terms of breaking news throughout the morning. global stocks are at an all-time high, but concern is creeping into concerns of the market. the number of investors seeking protection from a possible plunge has a searched. the founder of hedge fund says a correction could be on its way. i think the market is adequately valued. it is not overly valued. the reporter asked if we would ever have a 5% correction. that could happen anytime, including tomorrow. >> you don't see one eminently? >> i would say we are getting closer to one, in my opinion. francine: good morning.
we are saying quite a lot of up andeavyweights coming saying, this is not the time to focus on risk. we also heard from ray dalio and he is concerned about the political system in the u.s. where do you stand? >> for a major correction in markets to occur, aside from a proper bear market, you need a variety of things happening. you need to see a significant tightening of monetary policy and you are not seeing that anywhere because the fed is taking baby steps in tightening, but real rates are still negative. you can have those anyway. we have had a lot of concern over the summer regarding geopolitical events and that has created tensions in korea. stocks became very jittery. advanceerm, stocks will and then explore that range. we are still range trading at the moment.
what could lift stocks out of that range is when people start to focus on 2018 numbers, but that is later in the year. francine: how do you deal with north korea? when you look at volatility, it is not really there, when you look at some of the risk off mood, i'm not sure what would trigger some kind of correction. at the moment, as far as we can tell from a positioning point of view some a people are not huge into risk on positioning. if you look at the cash mutual fund managers have, that is that a high level. it is not that the market is so overly optimistic that's everyone is all in for a correction. francine: what happens to bonds from now on? >> i think what is happening in the bond market is not unexpected. bonds and yield curves have steepened. we expected that would continue in 2017. manufacturing confidence is
extremely consistent with high yields, but we have not seen that. yield curves have a flattened. that's not reflecting the cy cle. if you think about the five years between 2010 and 2016 in europe, that was reflected. financials were struggling. so, on a relative basis, so far this year, financials are looking better. i think as long as that is the case, it is appropriate. francine: do you worry about a lot of capital being raised, but not being deployed? what will people do with that cash, and what does that mean for the markets? >> are we talking about companies? francine: companies, investments, and also funds that have the cash, but don't know how to use it yet. >> i can't speak for all types of investments. that is not really my world, but
if they are waiting for an evaluation to slow the cash, that is an entirely appropriate investment strategy. one of the things we are seeing is a pickup in corporate activity. from the corporate point of view, a lot of that cash is starting to be deployed and i think that will remain the case. francine: thank you so much. stephen macklow-smith will stay with us. plenty coming up, including apple's grand gamble. will users thbe paying $1000? ahead of ubs'investment bank, the pain we see coming as financial operations are shifted from london. this is bloomberg. ♪ francine: this is "bloomberg
surveillance" and i'm francine lacqua in london. leftist or to the bloomberg business flash. reporter: toshiba has signed a memoir of understanding of its memory chip business. the embattled japanese conglomerate says it aims to reach a definitive agreement by the end of the month. the process has faced resistance from joint venture partner western digital, which has argued it has rights and filed for arbitration in the u.s.. richmond has reported sales that beat analyst estimates amid recovering demand in asia and south yearly comparisons. 12% in thereased five months through august, the fastest five-month sales growth since 2012. the chairman of ubs as a signal that the investment bank is unlikely to get much bigger anytime soon.
axel weber told bloomberg he was satisfied with the strategy amid calm financial markets. >> we happy with the size of the investment bank. we are happy with the number and size of transactions, but that is a problem everyone faces. in general, i think our strategy is in the right place. the court of the business, supplemented by an investment bank and an asset management business with focus on wealth management is where he want to be. reporter: that is your bloomberg business flash. francine: thank you so much, taylor riggs. 10 years ago apple revolutionized mobile phones with the launch of the first iphone. steve jobs spelled out twice exactly what the device would be capable of. and anipod, a phone, internet communicator. an ipod, a phone, and an internet communicator. are you getting it?
three separate devices. this is one device. calling it the iphone. today, today apple is going to reinvent the phone. francine: times have certainly changed. last night tim cook praised his predecessor's vision, but says theiphone 10 singles' dagnals next iphone revolution. >> it has an incredible design, face i.d., true depth camera system and more powerful technology than we have ever put in an iphone before. it really is the future of the smartphone. francine: the iphone x costs
$999, making it apple's most expensive phone, featuring augmented reality and facial recognition technology. they also rolled out an updated apple watch and tv setbox. this was greeted with enthusiasm, but they ended the day down 0.4%. jon medved is with us. if you look at the share price for apple, it has been 40% since the start of the year. you could argue yesterday was a success. >> the momentum has been building towards this event and i think by and large, based on the reaction, apple that those expectations, but the device will not be in peoples' hands until november.
how the facial recognition technology works and the technology,ality those are answers we will not see until later. francine: are strategists and analysts expecting too much? it was interesting, listening to steve jobs and the last he received when he was talking about the iphone and the ipod can bind iombined in one? do we need to take a breather? >> i guess it depends. if you look at the metrics the iphone trade on, it has a lower ratio than some of the others on the market. it is a hugely profitable company. it continues to grow, not as much as after steve jobs introduced the device, but it is still growing in the services business. i think all of these put together is what investors have been banking on. francine: you focus on new technologies and a lot of these are crowd funded? next?ill we be using
>> what is amazing about the iphone and apple is they have created the platform. it is a new creation and it involves integration of so many different technologies. this agile, start up driven culturally driven company excites the customers. i spent an hour last night with an 11-year-old who was jacked in, who's been hours watching -- he was vibrating from the excitement. the fact they can still do that, maybe they don't excite the analysts much, but they excited their base, and the base counts. this is a sexy company. they are driven by these emerging technologies. they are talking about augmented reality. how many of us besides pokemon have experienced this? this is going to be huge, not just for the consumer, but for businesses.
we've a company doing augmented reality for drunk. tal-- reality for drones. talk about the augmented reality. this combines many different elements, 100 chips. these drones are going to be driven by startups. apple watch is a platform. they don't have apps today for drones. this is where this is going. francine: i know that adam has to go to radio, so the final question, is $999 too expensive? are these phones getting too expensive for the common user? >> i think the devices have been going up and up, but if you look at the range of products apple now has a pretty wide range. they have lowered the price for the iphone se, which is on one end of the spectrum. on the other end, they have the higher end model, which is going
to be a steep price for a lot of people. europe, it is about a $1300 equivalent in the u.k. i think apple has proven that people will pay for a premium product. francine: adam, don't get me in trouble. go to radio. to you cared about this stuff? i want to ask about oculus. i tried oculus, i was a little bit sick. do you care? >> yeah, we care. .rom the european point of view in the medium-term, we are talking about augmented reality. we need to be ready for this in the next five to 10 years. >> people become
excited about the advantages of these technologies. apple will be rolling through the enterprises in a major way. virtual reality, like oculus or vibe. surgeons are strapping this stuff on to visualize what they will do when they operate inside your brain. when you look at that company, they are using it right now in florida and houston to put at motion an augmented reality streets, soese dro the drones can see who needs rescue. that kind of interaction between the real and virtual world, that is a huge trend. we view them as two separate items, but they are coming together, coming together with amazon and the purchase of whole foods, they are coming together with the idea of taking reality and layering an augmented element. francine: with warehouses, right, you can use augmented
reality. how big will this market yet? >> it is going to get enormous. machines learning a.i., people are concerned about this relative to robots and robots taking over, but this will change all of our lives for the better. we've become a co -- we have a company called zebra medical systems. it allows the computer to help them. doctors themselves can miss a cancer. a machine has a much easier time of catching this stuff. the ability to start integrating these businesses will create productivity and performance enhancements. that is what is exciting. here he is, sitting and talking to billion of people, talking about machine learning, augmented reality, next generation cameras. francine: how many companies that you back actually make it to a sizable chunk? >> so far, we have backed 120 companies. ipo's and trade
sales out of israel, where we are based. this year there have been four exists over $1 billion. there was a huge one for $15 billion. so, there's all kinds of this activity going on. the trick is, when and how do you sell? sell?s a good decision to people can argue that. what is happening in technology is up and to the right. for apple and google and faced intel, they are being driven by these technology companies. the question is whether the average investors will be able to get involved in these companies as private companies? facebook, two usm
facebook and apple are constantly looking as these disruptors to them and buying them out? so, you don't need to worry about jon's world. and you buy into that. right.are absolutely the incumbents, they are concerned about technological disruption. they have very deep pockets. they can get involved in these technologies. francine: that was a very fun conversation. stephen macklow-smith stays with us to talk about bexit. ubs thinks bank profits will come under fire. we will break apart decades old business models. presidentvestment spoke exclusively to bloomberg. >> it will be challenging and it
will be rocky, meaning, there ar e contrasting forces. the first force is, if i need to unbundle and i need to pay separately, i will start saying, i don't want to pay for this or it want to pay less. >> that is what every client should do. >> exactly. but something going in the opposite direction is, before because of strong relationships and bundling i was buying a service from operator a, which actually is not, when you look at the facts, top quality. now i can't justify buying that service from competitor a. our view is, i then need to justify i am paying something for that service, so competitor s b and c, who are much better than competitor a, should gain volume and share in both subsegments. how is that going to land? and lots of reaction as
everybody adjusts, but that is just one scenario. we could all find another way to make that work. the problem is, as i stand here in september, everybody has run scenarios, i don't think anybody will tell you, i have it all figured out and on january proportions and my providers know it. they will be adjustments from the beginning of next year. francine: that was andrea orcel. we will get plenty more from the great interview. up next, after yesterday's inflation, we have the latest u.k. unemployment data. in the meantime, this is your data check. the dollar's two day rally seems to be petering out. traders want to know more about clues about what the u.s. economy looks like to figure out the pace of u.s. interest rates. we do have reports on august consumer gains.
they were due this week. that could help some of the traders shed light on the strength of the u.s. recovery. we'll focus on that. so, this is your stoxx 600. the dow, 0.3%. crude, we had the iaea report. we are also hearing opec's meeting to discuss extending the production cut. this is bloomberg. ♪

been discovered in the florida keys. 25% of the homes in the island chain might be destroyed. emergency workers have rushed to the keys to deliver food and water. the number of people without electricity in florida has dropped to 9.5 million. utility companies warn it could take 10 days were everybody's power to be restored. north korea has made its first official response to the new united nations sanctions. kim jong un's rejects the sanctions and promises to speed of the plan to acquire the nuclear weapon that could hit the u.s. china says it's willing to work with the u.s. to make sure there are positive achievements one president trump visits later this year. that is according to the government state counselor, who met with rex tillerson. the white house has not confirm the presidential trip. in the u.k., the most employment rate in four decades is not

when you think about this, you think, how many people will go for hikes? the inflation you saw yesterday, 2.9%, higher than expected, all most at 3%. wage growth was a little sluggish, similar to the dynamics in the u.s., simply because it is a tight labor market. joblessness is down, so we are fully employed, yet wage growth is not picking up. everything i am looking at now is in the dchart. tom: this is my chart of the year three or four years ago this is inflation-adjusted rising income in america. and for decade after decade, nixon, lbj before that, up we go to rising incomes, peaking in 1999. this is the story for the american household. we have had two surges up in the last year and are now
finally above the 1999 adjusted income in the poverty rate gets back to almost where it was in the good times of 2006 in 2007. it is a really interesting study getting major play in the u.s. francine: my chart is something i do not do very often, but i saw it this morning. it is the onshore chinese equities, compared to the yuan. strength the yuan fueling some of that. that is in blue. in white, we have the u.s. denominated onshore equities. there is more demand from investors, also looking to hedge against further yuan appreciation. u.s. stocks continue to climb. the surge is being greeted with some degree of caution with a number of investors seeking

next downtown. seeingelopment we are tends to be resistant. francine: there is low volatility, isn't it? doesn't that make it difficult to assess risks? >> this is not a measure of the underlying risk but low volatility by itself does not mean it has to go back to some mean anytime since, some higher volatility level. we need triggers for that and the macro environment is pretty supportive. moreover, there are pockets you can point to. at this stage, difficult to make a case that they amount to the system that could be very disruptive. in this environment, one of the risks is to remain underisk. tom: we will talk about washington in a bit with leslie viniamuri, but i love what blackrock says about an impending fiscal cliff.
to a are we in the market fiscal cliff that could come in december or november? >> we wrote last week about the debt ceiling discussion. i think we bought some time now, at least until december. and the question is how things will play out. i would say there was quite a bit of uncertainty. we think there is a risk around the december 15 discussion, but overall, we are going to be watching what is happening. it could take different directions. there is a chance of the fiscal cliff in december. tom: i like the idea of a chance of different directions. what will be the driver, the leading regressed there, of choosing which of those directions we take? are many places that we can see. i think there's this -- we are
seeing a lot of concern about valuations of asset price across the board that have continued to keep a pretty cautious overall tone from investors. there's always the risk we might see politics that might break into a different environment, but we get the sense that ultimately at this stage, the underlying macro story iis influential, but this low vol environment has the potential to be persistent. francine: is it only the investors that can figure out inflation that will make big returns? >> so, we just put out a report and a tool on tracking inflation and trying to use more big data signals to inform what will happen to inflation.

has ended on a positive note. reporter: canada's foreign minister says the next round might deliver more specific language for an agreement. tom: this is the most interesting conversation. jean boivin, the former deputy out of canada, and he came of princeton come of the same as the illustrious david dodge. mr. boivin is in london with francine lacqua. what is unique now about the bank of canada, as compared to the focus on the fed, boe, and the ecb? what is the key distinction of the bank of canada? >> i think this is a good starting point. thiere is a unique story in canada. we have a tendency to extrapolate to all central banks, to quarter night, --
to coordinate, but there is something specific going on. canada has been facing a massive shock.ce shice they have been responding to this with two rate cuts, and they have categorized this as insurance policy against major headwinds. since april of last year, they have made clear that they don't think this is required anymore and we see now two hikes that have been implemented most recently last week. tom: let's go back to the chart here, folks. i've shown this many times. i call this the trudeau chart. this is 1.40 on the dollar canada. here's the massive oil boom. strong canada, lehman low. when mr. trudeau came in, she dollar-canada wa
weaker than it was during the lehman low. the question is, can canada breakout to new looney strength given the new leadership? >> i think they will be important drivers of the outlook and an important observation of the bank of canada. we have seen over the last few months, significant appreciation. we have seen a 3% in the canadian dollar versus the u.s. dollar. there are different drivers behind that. the canadian economy has been surprising on the upside. we have good gdp numbers coming up for the second quarter of this year. also, the composition of this growth is more constructive. we are seeing finally more support coming from exports and investment. there is reliance on the household sector, which is an important driver.
one of the big questions, we continue to see this, is what will happen to the strength of the currency? francine: that is where i wanted to go, because you can see the yield difference. oil replaced as the primary driver of the currency in the currency is driving ever higher. how many times can the bank of canada still hike? >> we have seen some repricing since last week. i think we're looking at -- the market is looking at close to three more hikes, or 60 basis points priced in at this tagest. this is, i think, a still fairly gradual nomination, but it depends on what will happen on the south side of the border and how much of the hikes the fed will be able to do. there is a bit of a disconnect between how little hikes we are expecting in the u.s. tom: i can see you at a meeting
in blackrock and this goes not only for the real interest of productivity in the night a kingdom, but for the u.s. as well. canada is its own unique productivity story. are we seeing in this unique country finally increased productivity with technology, and with a move away from a commodity industry focus? on canadiand productivity is unfortunately, not stellar. it was one of the laggards among the g7. things changed during the crisis. canada look better. unfortunately, a bit of that is the rest did not look as good and canada is where it was. tom: this is absolutely critical -- i don't mean to interrupt. are we becoming more like canada? >> lebron story since -- the
broad story since the crisis is the world has become more like canada than the opposite. i think we are now at this potential inflection point where we are seeing signs of productivity picking up in the u.s. and elsewhere, which i think canada would benefit from as well. the investment cycle is starting to show more productivity. tom: this has been wonderful, jean boivin. pleas e stay with us. coming up tonight on bloomberg television, a conversation with mr. milken of milken institute. this is in singapore. this is bloomberg. ♪ >> three separate devices.

lastly, i think it's a new kind theomestic diplomacy for president, do you think it's unusual for taking dinner with republicans and democrats? leslie: i think he's trying to reach out his hand, the question is whether it will lose him friends on the -- on his own side of the aisle. he has to deal with the promise and deliver on it if he wants to sell tax reform to the democrats. most concerned that they aren't simply for wall street. estate taxes cut, so it really looks like -- real household income broke
taken 20it's years to get back to that. there is a lot of discussion over the average american, but there's not necessarily articulating income bands. we have not seen numbers put to this, but for donald trump what it means is he understands there is a core part of his base, that 34% that is -- that matters to him and it matters he can stand up and say to them that tax reform is to them not corporate america. reformbers on the tax are changing, we are not hearing 15%, we are now seeing 20's.
the framing is -- tom: i don't mean to interrupt, but i -- maybe it is different than the united kingdom. there is a raging battle over what the middle class is and it is part of this debate. francine: if you look at some of the protest votes, a lot of these similar questions are being asked and the answers are a little bit different in the u.k. to the u.s., my question to jean boivin is how to play it in the markets. questions on of steve mnuchin threatening more sanctions on china, north korea, people are saying i'm going to put lingers on and i'm not sure how to price it in d.c., so i'm going to ignore it. lot: i think there is a driving geopolitics, but i don't think we are seeing the fiscal
story being priced in. there was trouble in the market earlier this year. i think we have seen a lot of pullback. if you look at equity overall performance, it is difficult to .rice a trump trade i think it has been trending sideways, but when you look at inflation priced in, rates picture, this is not consistent with a significant package being implemented. there is more to be priced in. francine: leslie, on the back of it do you need to see the kind getiddle-class america richer and more confident to make sure you want to put your money in north america right now? leslie: i think how that tax cut having afit or will be broader impact on the economy will show how supported they the program that came
out yesterday -- the data that shows weyesterday recovered from the crisis, which is good news, but at the same the inequality, which is still there. the narrative around the tax cuts will be significant. leslie, where is chatham house running into november 6 2018, this is going to be subsumed the election, right? leslie: yeah. there are even republicans that seem to think they can get tax reform through before the end of this calendar year, that seems extremely unlikely, but there is a strong desire to get tax reform through. nevermind that the relationship isn't good between trump and his own party, there is momentum behind this. there is still the question of
the affordable care act and many other things that are going to be going on for this nevermind the, russian investigation. think tax reform will move slowly, we have not seen details. it is very difficult for people in congress to talk about where they stand, because they don't know the details on the proposal. can the president of the united states have a cordial dinner at the white house with two competing sets of republicans? i don't even think they get along. when itall bets are off comes to the current president in the people who turn up. when its one thing, but comes to actually legislating, actually trying to get something through congress, that is a different conversation.
trump is clearly trying to forge relationships, but when it comes down to it the devil is in the details. he has courted these three democratic senators up for reelection, but they have to take something back home that they can credibly say will help working americans in the states they represent. jeb comingjust see of the table like john belushi "animal house." they do so much for joining us. -- thank you so much for joining us. you can drive over to bloomberg in new york, boston, the bay area, and the nations capital.

liked, more slowly than most people expected, but it is happening. any decision to the been or extend the current output agreement, we'll have to wait and see what they do. you look at estimates for 2018, i guess the assumption is that you say that at current production levels --c won't want to extend next year, but they will have to extend or cut further. quotingu're from the report, a great deal will happen on both sides of the balance as we move to the rest of 2017, but you are right to say that if opec or to maintain its current level of reduction throughout 2017 and 2018, yes, stocks at the moment would not fall dramatically.
it is not going to be that picture necessarily, we will have to wait and see how the market develops. the fact that demand growth has been revised upward, that perhaps indicates that the economic position is improving in the european economies, the u.s. is quite strong. we could see an upside to demand. you have been doing with with hydrocarbon since the 1970's with your work in venezuela, the iea has been a piñata with its advance in the middle east in crisis. there are always questions about iea data. people like francisco blanche, for that matter dan juergen, the linear extrapolation of oil demands voices demand volatility, how certain are you about those extrapolations of oil demands? we are not certain, nor
for that matter are any of the luminaries you quoted a moment ago. the reasoning behind our increase in the demand outlook is because here in europe we are seeing stronger economic performance. is an improved mood as far as the economic climate in europe, that will translate into oil demand and is already doing so. in the united states, the economy is pretty strong. we have seen far stronger gasoline demand than we expected and we see no reason for that to kill off in the short-term. meantime, the growing economies led by china and india are having solid rates of growth. we see demand having grown factor than we thought and we think it is likely to be maintained at this rate for the
rest of this year. and in 2018 we also see pretty strong demand growth about 1.4 million barrels a day. we are not certain, nor are the luminaries you quoted at the beginning of the second and -- of the segment. tom: can you of vision $70 a barrel in the distant future? neil: the issue that we have though is if the market does begin to rebalance and tighten, which it is gradually doing, prices are beginning to firm up. prices climb back to where they were in april, whether they go further remains to be seen, but another factor that should not be forgotten is do show signs of solidifying or rising, that is going to provide encouragement to oil producers in the united
states in particular, but also elsewhere. more supply coming online from the united states, which will act if you like as a cap on the future price increases. $70 a barrel is not currently in sight, i think a few people are forecasting that, i will have to -- i think we will have to wait and see where we get after this rebalancing exercise. francine: thank you very much. neil akin's and doing us from paris. we are back with jean boivin of blackrock. what factor does oil play? jean: a few roles are being played. clearly on the headline inflation picture, oil has been the key driver and that is having a second round impact in
terms of inflation expectations. is low expectation environment perspective. and i think we are seeing forces feeding intocture oil, that could have an additional impact and may be see them increasing as a result. we could see that as a catalyst around thetment inflation picture and the expectation around it. francine: thank you so much. in the meantime if you want to ask jean some questions, just log into tv . we hope you are a bloomberg customer, just put your question on the screen and we will put the question to our guest. this is bloomberg. ♪

feasible this president could have a collegial dinner with two groups of republicans warring in washington? kevin: i read the statements and was talking with some sources who were there. they were left out of that democratic letter. you talk to their offices and read statements, they say it was a good working discussion. tom: do you have a clue what middle-class means at 1600 pennsylvania avenue? not the trump or administration does, they feel it they are able to get 1-2 senators from that group of democrats, that they would lose of theport

president's response, that was this first test for the new white house to get it done. now it will all come down to policy. can they get something done before the end of the year? tom: this is quite extraordinary. we will do the fed and brexit later, but right now the state of washington. with his father's work in the diplomatic corps of the 90 in finance, work at thevolcker fellow council on foreign relations. i know you have never seen anything like we are observing in washington. how does the nation move forward after the summer of charlottesville in the last few weeks? >> there is a new article out by which makes the

biggest success has been the ejection of fear into the national psyche. not even they could imagine how social media could turn fear and a how the politics of fear would help propel a buffoon with feral instincts to the white house. can you imagine the challenges of the united kingdom and world war ii? do think technology and communications technology changes political culture profoundly. a key moment was the second term of ronald reagan's presidency when he became the first president of the united states to say he wanted prime time network tv, and he was denied it. because the cable shows were competing with the networks and the network did not want to give away the slot to the president. that shows how the bully pulpit which had grown stronger by the late 1980's, the democratization bullying the
political, and the growth of social media has further dissipated power at the expense of the presidency. francine: is president trump changing diplomacy? you talk about diminishing the stature of some organizations, but what if we are we are getting used to it? there is a fundamental fallacy from some trump advocates which goes having the willingness to be a little bit crazy may get you deals. ofhink a strong from a world real estate deals where it might be true, but there is the rule of law. you consume each other. there is a basic stability underlying the craziness.
in international relations, that does not exist. if you threaten north korea in a crazy way, you do not know what will happen. trump bringing that wheeler dealer mentality into the international realm is a scary shift. francine: do you not think that are ignoringge what is coming out of the white house, or at least the statements? and relation to north korea. had a previous administration said that, markets and diplomats would have taken notice. taking notice not of a lot of things, not just north korea. there is a backdrop of strong , the fastest is since 2010. they are feeling good and willing to overlook some pretty provocative diplomatic talk, but the fact is that with north
, we have no alternative but deterrence. do is communicate a consistent message that if they attack, they will be obliterated. ,ou have to be consistent, calm and this white house is not good at that. we have tillerson in this modern administration. how critical is the secretary of state in the discussion? >> i think it has been a while since secretary of state had that henry kissinger type stature. there is just too much signal ,ut of the white house sometimes it's the national, sometimes it is the president, but it is tough to believe that tillerson can be key. tom: we will come back.
not clear to everybody when this came to bear, and that is people. that you choose nottion a in europe and location b. the most important is that the people you have need to be ready to move. are they? ubs is looking at frankfurt, amsterdam, and madrid. one should be aware that queuing up be some at the eggs it if the market suddenly changes its behavior, its expectations on the future

tax economy and look at our regulations. distraction from the debate with europe. minister mayme need to do to coalesce the conservatives within london and the united kingdom? >> this is the dramatic development of the last few months. she is in a weak position. when she made her lancaster house speech and said were coming out of the customs union and single market, that gave clarity. at the moment, it is all up in the air. we don't know if she will survive. she probably will, but i think she has to make it clear that if the eu does not play ball, there is a clear path for britain under which we will be fine. what kind of society
does the u.k. want to be and who will lay out that vision? >> this is a key issue. if we were to get a jeremy corbyn led labor government, i think we would have a different vision of britain that would not be a low tax vinton. he may intensify regulations. i think britain may find it difficult to do well in those circumstances. the logic is to go for the singapore model. i doubt true much whether a labor government could do that. what is the vision for the prime minister? like portugal using ireland for corporations, or follow what she laid out clearly, looking after the households that are worse off that may have voted for rigs
it -- brexit? >> she is in the business of trying to garner support within the parliamentary party and wider. i'm not sure she has at the moment a very clear vision. the we are going to see is backtracking on austerity. this is something you could times.p in the financial does a spreadsts the united kingdom empire, would it play? >> no. leftwardis moving
, and it is very clear about the labour party. of idea we get some kind free market, pro-business is not -- this, is the left different than the blair and brown left? different.ly i worried about it. if we had a blair government, although we would not want him taking britain out of the eu, i would be relaxed. government labor under jeremy corbyn, this is a different animal. tom: what is the likelihood of that? tilt isn mentioned the left. what is the likelihood of of that left? formingikelihood of him
a government is relatively low, but we have to take that possibility seriously. depends on what goes on in the conservative party. going to survive and who replaces her when she stands down. it's not really about the economics. let me go back to economics and talk about my , cpi up 2.9%. wage growth is not following suit and how do you fix that? the markets worked themselves up over this inflation figure, the idea that may be u.k. interest rates will have to go up rather soon. i think people got this out of perspective. we always knew inflation would

badly. , do weom where you sit need a phd monetary theorist run the ship? >> i think it is helpful. i think you are better at on the staff if you can speak their language and command the respect. also, the job is to have a forecasting view of the economy so you can set rates appropriately. that is a phd in economics. without that, you are at a disadvantage. francine: what about getting a ceo or businessman to give you a different take on what the job entails? >> there are 2-3 skills you need to you need to be a political maneuver and washington, understand macro forecasting,
and do crisis responding. is good at twoho of these and weaker on the third would be ok if there were other people who have that skill to make up for it. the three big of ones, is the macro forecasting. tom: i just had a scary thought. sebastian mueller be for dinner with the president at the white house. we will continue on radio worldwide. it is all sterling. earlier this morning, 133. this is bloomberg. ♪
