parliament. people said now the republic is here, is our duty to defend it. people in barcelona say is our time to defend the republic. let's listen to catalonia's president. >> today, the parliament, a legitimate parliament, which is the result of elections, has taken a long-awaited and long fought step. have filled a mandate which is validated by elections. that was the catalonian president speaking after the vote. n, the senatebe voted, giving him the power to seize control. will it be a peaceful takeover?
en: that's probably the $6 million question. cabinet had a next ordinary meeting this evening, they're going to work out what to do. government for the is that they want to make it a gradual takeover in catalonia. that the byword throughout this process has been a proportional response. they want to avoid the violent scenes they saw october 1 when i try to shut down the illegal referendum. they do need to restore their authority in catalonia and do it quickly. a few months ago from the u.s. state department statement which says the u.s. supports spain's efforts to give the country united and up united states enjoys the great friendship and enduring partnership with our nato allies, spain. we'll cut loan you ever get outside recognition -- will catalonia ever get outside recognition?
or will they turn into one of these invisible countries? ben: i think it will remain part of spain. thisost likely scenario is will come to seem like a strange elipses in the country's history. they don't have proper control over the administration and they haven't established that their authority takes precedence over the spanish state. the most likely thing is that over months, madrid takes people onmposes its the catalan departments and we are more elections to return catalonia to some kind of normality. to ben- vonnie: thanks sills and maria tadeo.
he's enjoyed great relationships with various parliaments and governments, and a banker to the world. this get did they let so difficult to get to a face-off point? >> i was with him in new york five years ago and at that point in time, he knew that his biggest problem in his mind was not the economy. change thehad to economy. he knowledged his biggest problem is going to be catalonia. people have been surprised he's let the thing get this far. in 1935, -- 1934, the president of catalonia's regional government tried to declare independence. and thatrown in jail
was one of the prelude's of the spanish civil war, which was terrible and led to franco's invading from north africa. did, hehe reasons he said he invaded to fight communism and to keep spain whole. this is something that needs to be taken i think quite seriously. that he will have to be careful how he influences this. tosays he will go parliament and stay there and they want to drag him out. this has to be handled very carefully because they end up having to send troops in or nationalize the police, this could cause real problems, even though it's not clear that you have a great overwhelming majority of voters. vonnie: 2 million of the 7 million in catalonia voted yes. and not even all the catalonian's registered or took part. what concessions could he give
to the catalonian's? handout the olive branch? at some point, this has become friendly again. bill: he has to offer more autonomy than he already had. i was not in barcelona, but there's a strong feeling the rest of spain absent the situation in the basque region, where they are following a very carefully. spainncern of the rest of is that if too much is given to catalonia and they are allowed to much in the way of independence, then the basque country will also insist on it, and you can see some unraveling in spain. i think what he's got to do is sit down and try to see if they can extend more autonomy and then have a vote. i think you should call elections immediately and find out exactly what the people of catalonia want. because that referendum as you point out was just 2/5 of the population, basically. the calling elections i think is
the key here. in both parties have to agree to do it. spain has been one of the stars, if not these star of the eurozone economically in recent years, growing by 3%. how much damage is this saga going to do to the economy? bill: if this goes on much longer, it could have a damaging effect, because two of the largest banks, and the third-largest bank is domiciled in catalonia. if thisave problems thing isn't resolved in a timely fashion. you don't underestimate that. vonnie, as an irish woman, you howmber your own history of britain denied home rule for ireland and ended up in the 1960 eastern rebellion -- easter rebellion and led to independence.
these are things that have to be taken very seriously in the only way around them, including the arrangement between northern ireland and the republic most recently is to sit down and have a realistic negotiation. , they are talking past each other and not sitting down at a table to get a deal done. mark: do you expect a different response from the european union? the european council president said just after 3:00, around the time of the vote in catalonia, i hope the spanish government favors force of argument not argument of force. but clearly the eu stands behind spain. do you expect that to change? what would cause a shift in the eu support of spain? come back fromng france, where i had a chance to talk to several people in government, they fully support spain because you have the situation of flanders and
belgium and the recent vote in northern italy. that's a great concern this not be allowed to get out of hand. on the other hand, there's a limited power -- tolerance for violence. in europe. people want to see violence. it's very difficult. right now, the popular support all over europe and the u.k. is favoring the spanish government. but if you have asked of significant violence here, you could have a change of opinion. ceo of wl rhodes, william r wrote scrollable -- william rhodes global advisors. this is bloomberg. ♪

and administration won't be pursuing these are the same way the obama administration was. but these talks are preliminary and no figures have been discussed. no guarantee they will reach a deal. it does play a big part of the rationale. mark: how desperate is barclays to clear this up and move on? stephen: investors, the board, and employees are fed up about reading always scandals. they decided to pay $7 billion to settle this and get it out of the way and move on. barclays went the other way and so they would fight and now it looks like that's mark: they will read through brother banks who are ready to settle. stephen: the biggest one to come is the royal bank of scotland, owned by the taxpayers. they are behind barclays in the queue. their ceo said today they are hopeful of getting it done before the end of february. that's not that long. mark: daily is under investigation as well.

increase in the euro towards the end of the ecb qe, and then they can say is the first rate hike in europe. vonnie: how focus are central banks on emerging markets? we've seen several different central meetings where we haven't had any kind of tantrum, tabor otherwise. does that continue or they managing that? ecb: market reaction to the , you probably was see a big surprise, rather than yields meeting higher up and strengthening, the market was so well-prepared and so cautious of the ecb taking that step, they managed to get the opposite reaction to a slowing down of the easing. the central bank's of venues to prepare an market expectation for any news. keephat's helping to volatility lower, to avoid the kind of taper tantrum that we had before.

mark: live from london and new york, i'm mark barton. vonnie: i'm vonnie quinn. this is the european close on "bloomberg markets." seeing the biggest move into years after third-quarter earnings beat estimates. cory johnson is in san francisco and he has with him intel cfo. cory: bob swan joins us to help us dissect this very interesting earning report. glad to have you join us from nearby santa clara. lovely santa clara. bob.nk we have after this earnings report, it was an interesting quarter.
i want to have you explain what happened. it was confusing in my model where i saw your marketing cross go from 12% plus the year ago down to 10%. what was the change? it looks like the marker disappeared. mr. swan: first, thanks for having me and good morning. , that's a keys component of our overall cost structure and we continue to invest in driving demand for oems. the couple of things are in the of the quarter and a continuation of what's been going on for the course of the year is increasing our intensity and focus as the end markets continue to evolve. that's been one of the key drivers. secondly, growth. the company is growing rather effectively, and that growth's getting is good leverage our sales and marketing dollars. in the third, we made a tweak to how we are spending our money.
in effect, we are trying to protect with historically has been a very effective way to spend money on the intel inside programs. basically until writing checks to pc makers and saying say it's intel inside and do the marketing, but you are essentially writing a check to the oem. mr. swan: we're trying to protect that brand, while also tailoring our programs to work more effectively with oems to give them the flexibility to drive growth, which is in turn good for intel. stand withthat still the marketing budget, or does that just a conjure revenue item that lowers revenues? mr. swan: it's a contra revenue item. you had revenue lower by a couple hundred million dollars, but spending lower by a couple hundred million dollars.
the change really have no effect on the operating income of the company. cory: it made me stare at my model twice. after you make these changes, i wonder -- about the end market and how the end market for intel, which is one so dominated by pc's is really been effectively moving to the data center. with's this bubbling up internet of things, and i guess those two things are more interest in to me right now than pcs. let's see where you are seeing strengthen the business. mr. swan: we've been through a fairly significant transformation from a company that was a relatively short time ago, 70% of our revenues and cash flows came from the pc business. but through a series of investments, both organically and inquisitively, we dramatically expanded our market where we had this collective set of capabilities that we think are well positioned to capitalize on what we believe is
increasingly a data centric world. that business now as we said yesterday is 45% of the revenues of the company. and growing at 15% year on year. it's been important part of the transformation of the company, important part of our growth, and an important part of our profitability. cory: what part of it is white box? like apple,panies facebook, google, amazon creating white box devices. i wonder how much of your do this in a desert is selling chips to end-user companies who are making their own devices? mr. swan: as a company that spends row fairly dramatic transformation from pc centric to data centric, our data center business has also been through a fairly dramatic transformation. companytorically the that really served enterprises, but it's been through a massive transformation in of it self,
where today, over 60% of the revenues of the data center business come from clouds, from the cloud and from the columns network providers. it's been through a fairly dramatic transformation and the players you mentioned are key, important customers and partners for us in the growth of the company. one last question, can you convince me in 60 seconds they didn't pay too much for mobile up? mr. swan: i hope so. we looked at the economist driving market and believe that much like intel has been a significant player in the pc's, a significant player in data centers, we think intel coupled with mobileye will be a significant player in autonomous driving and we see that market over time to be as big or even bigger than pcs and data
centers. and we think the combination of intel mobileye are uniquely positioned to be the leading player in autonomous driving. we just closed that transaction a couple months ago and we are very excited to have the mobileye team a part of intel. two months in, they've already surpassed our expectations. we are excited about the initial mobileye as a company, and there was a treatise in terms of earnings in its first two months. so early days, but we are looking forward to what we think we can do in that market. mark: --cory: a long-term bet. bob swan, we appreciate your time. back to you in new york. vonnie: thank you, cory johnson. thank you for bringing that to us. you will see more cory johnson on "bloomberg technology." time now for the stock of the hour.
