3:33 pm
released tomorrow, gop leaders will have just 10 official legislative days before the holiday to do nothing short of rewiring the u.s. economic engine. here to talk about what is feasible is congressman chris collins come a republican representing new york. he joins us now from capitol hill. chris: good afternoon. are reports you have managed to find some kind of compromise with congressional leaders that will allow deductions for state and local taxes to remain in some form. is that true? we're it does look like going to have a continuation of the deductibility of property at aboutbe cap $10,000. toyour property taxes of up $10,000 you can deduct. if they are over 10,000 you would be limited to 10 plus your mortgage interest deduction. i do think what it still means
3:34 pm
is 85% of americans will take a new standard deduction of $24,000. even though we are putting in as a compromise up to $10,000 of property tax to be itemized, it is only if you are going to itemize with over $24,000. i think it is still going to be most folks taking a standard deduction under the new plan. joe: obviously governor cuomo not happy with the idea that state and local taxes that people still pay in your home state of new york are still fairly high and people would take a hit on that. what is your response on that come as you have laid it out, that deduction would go away. chris: as i have said, king andrew has certainly levied the highest taxes in the nation on his subjects and i am fighting for the upper middle in crumb -- income new yorkers.
3:35 pm
he is fighting for the billionaires on wall street and hedge fund guys making millions and living and mansions. our tax plan is not about living -- looking after the top 2%. it is about the middle and upper middle earners. they are going to save money under this plan and it is quite the juxtaposition we have. as a conservative republican everyday for the middle encumbers and andrew cuomo and senator schumer are fighting for the billionaires on wall street. joe: do you believe the elimination of the state and local tax deduction would put put juston albany to changes fiscal approach going forward? chris: i think it should. the millionaire's tax, which king andrew is trying to protect, the millionaires tax is what they are talking about which is one of the highest in the nation.
3:36 pm
i would hope with losing the deductibility of that for those millionaires and billionaires they should take a hard look at it. in drew cuomo made sure he did not some set because he has never seen a taxi didn't like or want to hike and this was one of them. we had been saddled with the 8.9% it was supposed to subset a few years ago and king injured wants to continue it. he's going to come on -- come under a lot of pressure that he deserves. i just want you to listen to what he had to say about the tax reform plan and the way they are going to approach this. >> the speaker told me the concept was so new and so bold that any timeframe that we have the rank-and-file members of the house could not wrap their heads around it and understand it. thes something i think members can understand and we're
3:37 pm
going to keep pushing and see if we can get existing reasserted. if not we are going to oppose this bill tooth and nail. julia: what is your message to jerry howard here in light of his decision to fight tooth and nail against this program if he does not get what he wants? disappointed in jerry because what he is opposed to is the doubling of the standard deduction to $24,000. today, a large percentage of americans are itemizing, taking their income tax deduction, mortgage interest deduction, because standard deduction is $12,000. by taking it to $24,000, 90% of americans will have a simplified postcard tax return taking the standard deduction. their contention is if they get the standard deduction there's no incentive to own a home. they are somehow saying if you do not have a tax incentive to buy a house they were not buy a house, and that is ridiculous. in canada they do not get
3:38 pm
reductions and have higher ownership in america. people are buying house because they wanted ticket fence and a yard. they want a swing set. the thought that the only reason people buy a house is because of the mortgage deduction is just crazy, it is wrong. they also forget we are eliminating the alternative minimum tax. people were buying houses before and only getting a portion of their deduction and the like because the alternative minimum tax came in on top of it. i am disappointed that he does not understand that a growing economy is going to put more pay into people's wallets, more people are going to have the income to buy a house, they will be more demand for housing. it is very self-serving, very narrowminded and i can tell you, their disappointing. julia: are you expecting more trade association heads to come out against this tax reform plan? chris: i don't. you have already seen chamber of commerce, most of them with the
3:39 pm
exception of the homebuilders -- again, they are not thinking about what is best for america. isy are overplaying -- known good to buy a house because they will not the benefit of itemizing the deduction. they areind ourselves, opposed to doubling the standard which is ao $24,000, huge boost income for 90% of americans. they are just looking out for themselves and i am disappointed in that. scarlet: our thanks to chris collins of new york. julia: we have breaking news. regina -- has has resigned as the u.k. defense secretary according to the bbc. this comes following accusations he acted inappropriately with a journalist. in his resignation he admitted his behavior. this has ramped up pressure on the prime minister theresa may

3:42 pm
avoiding oversight is over. especially as we head into the 2018 and 2020 elections and really deal with the fallout of the robert mueller probe, silicon valley is very much wrapped up in this. marks very striking that zuckerberg was not on capitol hill questioning and answering on behalf of these american questions. days prior, saying what they were -- kevin: not publicly. scarlet: talk about the legislation that has been introduced or is in the works to really limit some of the influence some of these big tech companies have. kevin: these tech companies are saying they are self-regulating themselves. i asked democrats and republicans if they think that is enough and they are rolling their eyes. --dsey graham, john mccain republicans and democrats alike

♪ pressure rising ahead of president trump's 11 day trip to asia. china called the u.s. commerce department's refuse to -- this comes on the heels of heightened tensions with north korea, a problem in which president trump will need xi jinping's support. we're joined by george magnus associate at the oxford university china center. great to have you on, thank you so much. when it comes to the president's trip to china what will he want to achieve versus what is he likely to achieve? george: i think what he wants to two main items on the agenda. -- onely is north korea
3:47 pm
obviously is north korea and the other is trade. the whole america first rhetoric backump changed the rules into america's favor rather than china's favor. what will we be able to achieve? i'm not optimistic he will be able to achieve much. he will certainly want to keep china onside as an intermediary to keep pressure on north korea. and i think he will want to try to make sure that the chinese hear what he says about fair trade. nke chinese, though, i thi they know how to flatter the president. and i think they believe the president is very susceptible to being flattered, which basically means that he can be played, from the chinese point of view. so that is kind of what worries me about whether there is any
3:48 pm
real business going to get done. joe: he sort of anticipated my next question. what do you see as the way chinese leadership places from their perspective -- leadership plays this from their perspective? what will they be going for and how you expect them to do with this? what are their goals? joe, onspecifically, trade, for example, as we saw when xi jinping went to see the president in mar-a-lago earlier this year, i do not think the chinese are just going to show him a closed-door. there are certain things in terms of trading standards or rules of trade, treatment of american companies in china, that i think the chinese can be prevented to give. -- there are small very small, relatively minor concessions but they know it might be enough for the
3:49 pm
president to parade -- tweet about them, we had a fantastic meeting, and so on. with north korea it is a bit more difficult because i think the chinese, while they are in a way happy to be an intermediary, they do not want to do the united states any great favors. they do not want to see the north korean government collapse, either. you know, i think they will try to make sure that some sort of dialogue can be achieved maybe one day between the united states and north korea. julia: china has also just come off the back of a very important party congress. what we have seen is a consolidation of power from xi jinping. how do you believe he is now going to use that? crackdownen internet -- how does that fit with the idea that china is now going to open,e reformist, more
3:50 pm
more globalized than it has ever been before? because to be there seems to be a conflict. george: that is the 64 trillion yuan question. a lot of people think having spent the first five years in office basically gaining control and complete command over the army and the party, that the inner reformer in xi jinping is just waiting to jump out. the form of what he has done and his behavior do not lend themselves easily to that conclusion. if this man has been so successful as he has been in getting control over some of the most difficult and complex organs of the state, it is really hard to believe that he junior able to instruct
3:51 pm
carters and officials in local and provision governments to carry out the economic reforms which were paraded with great fanfare in 2013. so i do not think that xi jinping wants to -- i think there are certainly changes he wants to make in the congress was quite clear that quote -- that social policy and environmental policies will get a big prioritization. but the idea that china is addenly going to discover thoughtful reform and liberal openness is not going to happen, in my opinion. joe: a big macro story that people are telling about u.s. in trading from global leadership, china expanding his leadership on trade and influence. and perhaps well the most clear examples of this outward vision -- one of the most clear examples of this outward vision -- what do you think about the prospects there? will this become a meaningful avenue for the world economy?
3:52 pm
george: it is a big deal, joe. i think the western commentators and the media are quite focused on it. i am not sure western politicians are sufficiently focused on it yet. so, the congress was also remarkable for other things, basically getting rid of this kind of notion that has been around in china for the best part of 30 years that it would be modest and bite it's time and it would not -- and b ide its time. i think the chinese have recognized now they are so big and their influence and economy are so big in the world that they cannot have a -- they can not leave a bigger footprint in the world. there is no question they are very serious about it. it might not make a lot of commercial sense in different countries.
3:53 pm
a lot of countries doing big deals in china have very weak government systems and very poor get capacity. but there is a struggle for eurasia going on and it is going to involve not just the indians in the japanese and the russians, but of course the united states as well. we need to think about how to cooperate with the chinese. julia: speaking of cooperation caught china has i believe 17 land neighbors who are clearly going to be wary of that move away from more modesty in the chinese republic. russia, india. how are they going to respond to this? junctureell, at this -- in 10 years time things can change a lot. at this juncture, for russia, much's not too tension or problems because the countries are cooperating.
3:54 pm
i think india is a diddle -- is a different kettle of fish. the chinese are building ports around india are they call it the string of pearls -- around india --they call it the string of pearls. and the indians did not like it and it not like the way the chinese are cozying up to pakistan, which they have always done, but it is now becoming a little bit more intense with the china, pakistan economic court or. coridoor. they feel it makes them very vulnerable. india has its own wish for its own influence in asia and south asia, in particular. we have already seeing a few tensions between the indians and the chinese in the mountains in

the question is how much the company will be spending. hearingstalk about the and the fake ads, facebook has to pony up for human fact checkers and people to vet these ads. that is the? . >> the company said on the last call that they expect 40% to 50% of the next couple of quarters, so much like google and amazon. investors like these fast-growing topline companies that continue to reinvest in the business. in the case to facebook, it is talent for engineers. they may need to allocate more investment to what might be some quality control issues and they can make that investment. stock that is up 7% this week alone and still it appears if we're going on those initial traits that they still beat expectations, the stock of 2%. as much is that google number

4:08 pm
perceived today in the senate and the house. he has to do something about that, and it will cost money, but the money continues to roll in. that is the reality. >> in terms of the advertising revenue, that equates to a 49% year over year increase in revenue in the advertising space. joe, you were talking about this shift towards digital in the big tech names. they may be reaching full penetration in terms of users, but in terms of the quality of engagement, it is clearly improving. topline revenue growth story for facebook, they said they would pare back the number of ads they put into your feeds. they have instagram, messenger, and whatsapp, and they are in the early innings of monetizing those. each of those is one billion each.

"what'd you miss?" let's dive into tesla's third-quarter results. let's bring in numerous senior analyst and david welch. great to have you with us. what elon a look at musk has been saying and the expectation he can't ramp up to 5000 a week by the first quarter of next year. do you buy it? >> we will have to see. they missed their original targets for q3 by a significant margin. they had originally targeted byducing 5000 model threes
4:35 pm
the end of the year. they have push that target out three months. it is hard to believe they would disappoint us to quarters in a row, but the jury is out. scarlet: the jury is out. the loss is bigger than expected. we are looking at delays, but it's not moving by that much. the cash burn is continuing as well. were seeing a cash balance of $3.5 billion entering the quarter and a cash earn of $1.4 billion, which exceeds analysts estimates. his tesla going to have to tap the debt market again? >> it is possible. they have not had an issue raising capital on the debt or equity markets. the company said they are going and thection hell impact to margins and cash flow is magnified, but if they are able to get to 5000 cars per and ramp from there, the
4:36 pm
cash flow and the pound sheets concerns will go away quickly. inie: they raised 1.8 a dollars in that bond sale in august. david, your take on these numbers and the information so far? that they thing is pushed out production of the model three. they were not get to five thousand a week until the end of the first quarter. and because elon musk often misses deadlines, can you rely on them? did talk about some other bottlenecks, the battery plant they are having a difficult time with, getting enough batteries out. different parts of the assembly line or 500 are week, others are 1000, so everything is not flowing smoothly together just yet. they have been working on it for the past quarter or more. that really says it will be a lot of fits and starts before they get to the numbers they
4:37 pm
need to get the cash flow they been talking about. they also didn't really say when they would get to the 10,000. maybe by the end of next year, and maybe that will get pushed back. i think that is what has given investors pause and we are seeing shares down a bit weird scarlet: thank you so much. -- down a bit. scarlet: thank you so much. let's recap the headlines when it comes to the federal reserve. the wall street journal , not coming from the white house, that the president is said to have acted jerome powell as his fed chair. they had a full conversation this morning apparently. julie: who knows. joe: bloomberg economist with us for north america. isomberg reporting that it looking likely it will be jerome powell. now that it appears real, what are you looking for next? >> it will be interesting to see

his first step after conference. a different topic, the replacement for libor. joe: i wonder if his mind will be elsewhere. >> it said announcement comes out officially, that would potentially be some to watch for. be watching for mostly is just confirmation that he is still very much of the same ilk as janet yellen. julie: what time is he speaking tomorrow? >> i have to pull that up. julie: i will let you inconspicuously do that. >> 8:30 tomorrow morning. julie: a preannouncement likely in the afternoon tomorrow. scarlet: the question is whether he will make it a two-for. does he also announces vice chair? >> we have plenty of vacancies
4:39 pm
on the fomc. scarlet: there's going to be another derby? >> the derby will be less exciting for the number two spot. barely seen the markets react, .2% in terms of the dollar moves. it is so well telegraphed. fridaysu remember two ago, there were rumors of jerome powell in the market, and that is when he was not a front runner and you saw some reaction in the dollar, treasury yields, and equity markets. this time it is so broadly expected -- joe: we talk about jerome powell as a continuation pick. youe the argument here was like janet yellen's performance and like her for the stock market, and you want to put your own mark on it and get a republican for a liberalization of reforms, jerome powell is your guy. is it that simple though? >> that is a fairer assessment
4:40 pm
of jerome powell and how he will be as fed chair. mindseth of the same has janet yellen when he spoke at the jackson hole conference earlier this year in late august. he was reiterating the notion that the fed can afford to move gradually given the low-inflation environment. more of that mindset now given the backsliding we have seen. whether janet yellen or jerome powell, the fed will look very much the same. joe: something we discussed thinkr this week, i jerome powell unlike recent fed chairs does not have a phd in economics and is not an economist by training. how significant is that? >> i think he has solid economic credentials. the fedhe has been at in the aftermath of the financial crisis. that is a better education than you can get anywhere else. also as a will
4:41 pm
product of the institution be declined to defer to the forecasts at the board of 200 phd's so you have at your disposal. not having a phd and economics will not be a hindrance to him. like paulhat people volcker also did not have a phd. marketin terms of reaction, the announcement of a vice chair at the federal reserve could move that in any way if we get someone more or less hawkish? does it matter at this stage? >> it could the if you see the president setting up for a contentious environment at the fed. we have had a collegial fed under greenspan, bernanke, and janet yellen's term. setting up with someone significantly hawkish on monetary policy, then you are
4:42 pm
setting up for some discord at the fed. i don't think financial markets would like that. financial markets like predictability and stability. scarlet: when president trump makes this announcement, what happens at the december fed meeting? does janet yellen start to hand over the duties to jerome powell? out her termerve and be there in january as well. ,ou can call her a lame-duck but she will fulfill her term. i don't think she will be a lame-duck in that regard, especially as jerome powell is a continuation. she may provide coaching and insights and those sorts of things to the incoming chair. joe: you mentioned that jerome powell has a solid grounding in economics and there have then fed chairs in the past two were not trained academic economists. that being said, in a crisis, if it helped that--

ben bernanke was a student of the depression -- have the credibility to do what he needed to do in 2009-2010 taking the fed and directions no one had seen the fed going before, could that be an issue for jerome powell? that he could take us into uncharted territory if necessary? problems.ses some i think jerome powell would be willing to reengage in quantitative easing if that was necessary. , there wasly someone no better person to be at the head of the fed then ben bernanke whose academic career had been devoted to studying the causes and factors around the great depression and what helped us out of it and what made it worse. that added to his credibility. being a fed chair during peace time is a lot easier in some regards. scarlet: does jerome powell have
4:44 pm
a specialty? ben bernanke was the depression. what is jerome powell's specialty? >> he is a product of the private sector. group, sothe carlyle he understands how the private sector operates, which is as important at the fed is understanding economic theory. julie: you can argue in a crisis situation or turbulent market situation, that that market experience is what comes to the fore versus academic. >> that's right. that's why i would not try to spin the story that he would be less equipped for the job. i think he will be a successful fed chair. jerome powellhat will be the next fed chair, but we still have to await the decision. thank you. coming up, emerging markets bring strong returns for investors, but what risks could
