7:13 pm
in the currency markets, the value of the dollarfell with many analysts waiting to see whether mr trump will deliver on his promises to abandon global free-trade agreements. kamal ahmed reports now on the economic impact of the trump victory, bell rings it was not a death knell for the markets, but a day of volatility followed by calm, a benign reaction as investors wait to see if there actually is a difference between what donald trump says, tough on free trade, tough on immigration, and how he will actually govern, we don‘t know what he's going to do. right? he's a hot ticket, what is he really going to do? is he going to temper his whole posture? did he say that stuffjust to get those disenchanted votes, right? or is he actually going to follow through? the reaction of the markets was muted‘ the s&p index of america‘s biggest 500 firms was slightly up by 02% and the uk's ftse 100, after a sharp dip, also ended up rising, up 06%

the value of gold rose by 5% as investors looked for a safe haven for their money‘ donald] trump! mr trump argues his policies, cutting taxes, boosting spending, will lead to faster economic growth, economists say he might be right, in the short term at least there should be some help from infrastructure spending and tax cuts and so on. longer term, the us is very heavily indebted, very heavily indebted economies which are relatively mature in terms of their economic cycles always have a risk of possibly going into recession and that recession risk becomes bigger if it turns out that donald trump is partly responsible fora dismantling of the global trading system, let's take a look at donald trump's economic plan. first he has promised to spend $600 billion on infrastructure, fixing america's transport links, that could mean increased borrowing which might spook the markets, second, mr trump wants to see $4.4 trillion in tax cuts,
7:15 pm
personal and business‘ how he funds those is not absolutely clear. third, new import tariffs of up to 45% against countries like china and mexico‘ mr trump has also threatened to abandon global free-trade agreements unless free trade can lead to lower growth, on the markets, this might be something of a phoney peace‘ investors are watching and waiting to see if mr trump really wants to rip up the rule book or play in much steadier game. kamal ahmed, bbc news‘ gary hufbauer is a senior fellow at the peterson institute for international economics, he's in our washington studio. are are all of are all of america's trade agreements going to are all of america's trade agreements going to be in the agreements going to be in the dust now? agreements going to be in the dust now? the ones that have been now? the ones that have been negotiated such now? the ones that have been negotiated such as
