the potential tax reform has fire.hrown fuel on the let's bring in brian bell. when you look at the headlines coming out of washington with regards to tax reform, wise it that they do not slow down the momentum. a slum move higher. -- slow move higher. move've had such a great upstocks since the election, 21%. the noise out of washington and all the rhetoric is something that we warned investorsof an said --
i think it proves we are going back to what we believe is good old-fashioned fundamental investing. i think people don't understand this is not how stocks of and run the last 10 years and because of that, we think ultimately stocks will move higher. i think the biggest quandary is the whole time thing and should you buy stocks because tax cuts. >> i love how you describe a tug-of-war that is going on. . strategists have a different view. just talk about this and ultimately it becomes irrelevant as we build attract higher. >> i think a big story that most
of are not talking about, i think we will enter a. of -- old people with gray hair will be worth something again. -- you have only been a senior analyst the last 10 years. i think the next cycle coming will put stocks in a very good light. tradingo managers are their mutual funds and hedge funds because they have to keep their jobs.
we are seeing the analysts because more bearish the analysts are talking to companies who are defensive because most of those have less son 10 years experience and i think some of us that have been around the block will be worth something again. >> something you have probably seen multiple times in your career getting a lot of your attention. >> we are still looking for reasons to be bearish on financials. this environment has nothing to do with 2007. market continues to be the
bully. the bond market has all the money. the barnier has a 10 year treasury yields. yields should be going higher so i think this is thetion trade because of increased noise out of washington. very quickly, -- mywas sick a look at some of biggest clients. with stocksexposed that we think will do well. negative.ll we have been so easy to do the easy thing.

have -- i'm i together that acting and securing its prosperity. he continued that russia is a collaborative effort. president putin is expected to meet with several world leaders. the state department announced new restrictions on u.s. travel with cuba. 83 hotels will be put on the list. officials are also limiting individual exchanges that were allowed under the obama administration. for is also making changes an export licensing program designed to steer economic activities towards the private
sector. level news powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in over 120 countries. this is bloomberg. the woes of america's malls are well-publicized, but -- whether a retail chain is successful or not, most have crippling levels of debt. the outlook for american retail and malls is pretty bleak. more let's bring in matt townsman. this story is just incredible. i think we all read it and were amazed. talk to us about what was going on. perhaps the concerns about retail are being hyped by the media. jcpenney, sears.
it look at what is going on in retail. right now we have a pretty healthy economy, but all these retail is a pretty -- all these other ones are struggling. if you look at what is coming over the next five to seven years, there is an explosion coming. at a time when overall debt is exporting as well so what is likely to happen, credit markets are likely to tighten. chart showing some these stores and their extraordinary debt levels. one of the types of companies >>t are under stress here?
sears is at the stress levels and the other ones are ok. the reason this is a big worthy -- worry is a potential spillover. the retail industry employs the most low income people in the country. away, thosees go people will be impacted and then there are all the states that rely on retail jobs. some states have benefited more and others have lost jobs for the is a huge potential to next five to seven years as this shakes out. about thees, talk institutions investors are exposed to?
>> it is interesting. if you look at the smaller banks , they have more of it than jpmorgan and chase or bank of america. be seeing impacts on a more national basis. that should have a chart highlights that. rates are going to go that high. for me, one of the critical -- the founding company wanted to keep the company private and they tried for months for someone to win the money.
at 13 to 14%king interest. anotherys "r" us was where they had a lot of debt and they had about 400 million. they couldn't do it in the file for bankruptcy. a lot of people thought they were doing this and anticipating credit markets would get tighter . >> thank you so much. >> global tensions dominating headlines this year. meantime, a howard grabbed by the crown prince of saudi arabia. i'll bloomberg editor-in-chief is joined by former cia director
general for trace. >> the sleeping economic overhaul of the country is a race against the time. he knows he has to push this through rapidly. the bottom line is within a decade they have to have completed a lot of this transition and if they haven't there is going to be a real challenge ahead or that. then you have a change to the way the country has been governed. one might control the industry of defense from the armed forces the paramilitary. turns in theake
family gets together and determines who is the best to leave the country. there has been power solidified by the crown prince. is athe most recent national guard commander and i think the tank as well. place.ot a bad ofre are standards detention. began, this is very dramatic. again, some of this very positive. the country that many have seen challenging and so on would not be doing that anymore.
a division might be that others might emulate. -- you worried at all this broader liberalization at the same time. >> you said a country in transition, i think it is a country of revolutions. some of the senior leaders have said we have got it. we know this is wildly fantastical. if we just get 60%, it would be a dramatic leap forward. 30, 60 or 80 is a great deal.
that is the central issue here because a country that has traditionally run large surpluses because of the price of oil, all of a sudden is having to tighten its belt and running substantial physical deficits and they have to transform the economy so that is not the case going forward. a contrast between the ruling family and the people of the country. so how saudi arabia goes determines how the gcc country goes. >> the impacts on the rest of the region. there also fighting a war in yemen. certainly dependent
on saudi arabia. jordan has often been the recipient. -- in that sense, this has a lot of affect. certainly, some of this so sudden, and all of a saudi arabia hosting the prime minister of iraq. it is something i could never get a previous king to the. this is really quite dramatic stuff and we still don't know how well everything shakes out in a rock in syria, keep in mind a ron would love to live in eyes iraq and syria to use these paramilitary forces.
when i was in the search, -- that because they have leaders and members of parliament. really welcome to the nfl kind of stuff. it is quite a turnaround. i don't think that happens, but it will be very interesting. >> did you think the rise of -- it is result of a number of factors. unquestionably, toppling saddam hussein and country that is a shia majority inevitably meant
to have the tax bill on president trump by christmas. >> tax writers are considering keeping the number of individual income tax rates at seven, a departure from the house bill. tenant rand paul says he suffered six broken ribs and a buildup of fluid after a neighbor attacked him outside of his kentucky home last friday. the neighbor has been charged with assault. appreciatesaying i support from everyone. >> king salman's government says his only frozen bank accounts of individuals and not those of companies they own or manage.
>> near help became a national figure in 1991 when she told the senate judiciary committee that then supreme court nominee terrence thomas -- clarence thomas sexually harassed her. , soy during an interview took issue with ben donald trump's dismissal of sexual harassment accusations. >> what was deeply troubling was butonly the normalizing, his entitlement to behave in a certain way. >> what she added is you know there has not been enough progress.
>> let's get a recap of today's market action. we should mention -- tech shares leading once again. national line >> strong preference is that the corporate tax rate starts next year. -- longer we wait >> we look forward to working with the senate as he tells come in. plus republicans reportedly expect to unveil their proposal
tomorrow. let's get some insight -- inside. he joins us from cambridge, massachusetts. great to have you with us. i know it is difficult to assess what is going on because things are changing all the time. how do you assess the package put together. >> i think corporate tax reform absolutely could expand economic growth and could benefit workers. but a key test for that is whether or not it adds to the deficit. if it adds to the deficit, you will call back a lot of benefits back over-- crawl
time. >> it is above the deficit. if you were to look at it in isolation, you do think it could be found that tax cuts would trickle down. -- that mean we could to tax high income , there are a number of sensible tax plans. what this bill in the house says is cut taxes for high income individuals and the only tax increases are has are for the most part on the middle class.
>> people have been warning about the deficit for a long time. it doesn't ever seem to come to fruition. never any pushback. why is that? done at of all, we have number of things about the deficit. race tax rates on high income households. we did the budget control act which cut discretionary spending. we have passed a lot of legislation that cuts spending and raises taxes and i think that is part of why you have not seen that sensitivity. if we went eight years and only we did was legislation like this, i think that would start
to happen of -- have an effect. a wall design personal tax cut. does that exists in boulder look like? >> i think there's much less growth potential. -- the mortgage interest deduction. that is a pretty courageous step of the house and i agree with them on that. i don't think you get a whole lot of growth that is individual tax reform. they are not really cutting rates. it actually raises marginal rates on a lot of households. >> it is something the trump administration has been talking about.
what's taxes -- there are four important. i remember at the beginning of the trump administration infrastructure spending. , is there a point tothe economic cycle stimulate growth? >> there is a supply side, i don't think there's much of a demand side. if we try to do more stimulus, they would just do it with faster rate hikes. the reason you want infrastructure is what it does to the productive capacity of our economy going forward and i think there's a strong case for we have it is a shame
at is a looking back trump's first year and he was elected and it is not just the u.s. stock market that has been rallying. here is winston, global head at brown brothers. i'm looking here and this is a modification to indicate how currencies have done. everything else has been rallying. the russian ruble leading the way. -- you canthread look over the past year.
to do more. surprised at the hungarian central bank. dangerous going three or 4%. i believe the czech national bank has high twice. they realize they are not doing well, and wise and they need to remove some of the stimulus. somenk there is disinvestment. >> i love getting the notes that they let me do things ahead like czech republic industrial output come up reported retail sales. nobody i get notes from our updating me with that. i really appreciate that. i encourage everyone to get on here. politicsoes individual or the monetary policy diverge
actually matter, particularly when the central bank is tapering? >> it is interesting to find that tipping point. i would say look at turkey right now. they have 12% inflation and yet hikes.fuse rate i think the turkish is one of the worst performing currencies. at some point, investors will say this is not the right policy. now, if the numbers continue to get strong, you might reset. turkey is certainly an outlier. >> big picture, one of the interesting things we're seeing. we have seen this oil strength slightly and dollar strength amid the oil strength which raises the question is the digitalf what we call
currency stale question mark over you -- using all categories that don't fit in the post shelf landscape question mark >> i think one thing to keep in mind is that these correlations change. see quite easily they fluctuate between zero and one and even negative territory. it is like they work until they don't. think the commodity story is interesting. it is around the $50 range. part of it is political and part of the is supply. i think the dollar rally around this is on track. banke the only central that is tightening by any consequence and i think that stands out. thank you for that.
now, some breaking news. the cbo updating the score unit they provided with earlier, saying the end of the individual mandate would add to 13 million .ninsured in 2017 . ,n order to offset maneuverings the house members are trying to agree on. obamacare.sented 34 speak to how hard it would be to bring in health care . many of them would be fallen terrors -- voluntary. ares worth noting why we adding so much, but it does show

reserve with only three governors? the privilege of having breakfast with her. i don't think she has made any decision in regards to that. >> what happens if we end up with only three? the administration has made a notue out of positions being filled. >> i think we will fill the positions quickly. andfocus was on the chair we have resolved that. we are already looking at people for these positions. your treasury office said you can pay the government's bills through january. is that the next date? >> no, what we said is we can pay the bills through january. we felt it was important to set guidance and in the end if a deal wasn't reached, we have the
ability to get there the beginning of next year. there's a lot of assumptions that go into tax collection and spending. >> you were in saudi arabia before the crown prince moved. when the imagination be in favor of it? in regards to what issues? >> in regards to the arrest and crackdowns that he is instituted. >> we had a lot of discussions on terrorist financing. iran. a lot of focus on we did not have any specific conversations on corruption. does his arrest post any americanfor you or companies in which he has a large financial interests question mark he owns financial stocks. is this a concern for you?
