eastern europe, they are much more concerned. >> which country -- is it rumania in eastern europe? >> it is romania and bulgaria. southeastern europe. there may be loans from europe to help pay russia what they say they are owed. it has had gas subsidies for so long, it is not very energy efficient and does not know how to use gas. >> that's right, so you have all of these inefficient industries in ukraine support a lot of jobs. it would not work if gas was just sold from the market. toy russia is willing provide it. you need to get to a point where they function as an economy without they subsidized gas. getting from here to there is extraordinarily difficult. >> what is going to be the tipping point? >> we will have to see a broad resolution, which is not an easy thing.

watching the numbers on roussefas, that dilma has shackled the company with the requirement to buy local. is that fair? >> it is fair when you talk about a supply chain that does not always exist. now you lay that falling oil prices that put pressure on the cost rate. you can see how the share price would become even more sensitive to the politics. >> is there hope that with these offshore -- there has been concern earlier last year that these amazing offshore explorations that petrobras, the strikes they have made, that there was not the money to explore them anymore. is there a hope now that there might be the cash to pull that through? >> it is certainly going to be possible if the price stays high enough. if the bottom line works right, they will find a way to bring in the cash development to attract too large a prospect or the big
question that will loom over it is going to be the economics, particularly with this weighing on them. >> you are doing more geopolitics with the larger picture on oil, but you look at the major oil companies. how does brazilian oil's major player compare to russia's? gazprom? how are they in terms of business operations? >> it is much better. in the grand scheme of state owned enterprises, oil companies, petrobras is relatively good. it is not a gas prom -- a gas prom, for example. zprom.is not a gas prices brazil have an oil that they can no longer hit these prices off the coast? >> one of the things that have been going around, people are
talking about what is the stress point for u.s. shale? some that i am talking to are saying that you ought to be looking at the stress point for offshore, whether that is the gulf of mexico or brazil or west africa. those are tricky because once you put the money and, you have to be making it back over decades. >> i wonder also if that number keeps rising, as it does with the breakeven numbers for saudi arabia. >> an election in brazil as well. there is an election coming up in the united states. up tonight, "with all due respect" with your governors. ♪

i always wondered about this, watching bp's advertising on climate change. companyssible to run a that extract natural resources and also figures out investments on climate change? >> i think it is. they will not lead the charge on climate change, they can help us understand how to transition from coal to gas. they can make it clear that it is compatible to cut consumption even as western companies invest more in production. >> as the price of oil rose, it made wind and solar comparably more attractive. is that a problem now as the price is dropping? there is less of a cost advantage or less of a possible beef competition. where you look more broadly around the world, it does matter. gas prices are setting off oil prices. oil prices go down, gas prices go down. economy -- what is wrong in our stereotype, our

good or bad. i think that is enough on oil. >> we covered a lot of ground. >> the power surges, must-read, michael levi. he has been writing prolifically. photosook at our top right now. >> number three photo. this is a picture of kurdish people watching explosions outside of kobani. turkey is allowing people to cross their border to help fight basis -- to help fight isis. >> so this is north and east of damascus, and this is at the top of syria, essentially. there are two other fronts. >> and it is such another step in a delicate game that turkey has been playing.
iraqi the help of the kurds, but they do not want their own kurds to be involved. i think it changes the scope of the acknowledged battle, that this is spilling over borders for a long time, and it is better to be able to acknowledge what is going on as a government. >> i do not want to catch you unguarded, but in the eastern part of syria, it is oil rich. the islamic state has taken this territory. >> what is interesting is this is important to the islamic state, but not necessarily so important in global oil markets. we tend to fixate on the global oil market. you can take 10,000 barrels off the market, given to me, and i would be very happy. i would be rich and no one would notice. our usesis upset that are going to iraq more than syria. >> the syrian rebels in many cases -- you know what we are

regulation was to take risk out of the system, right, anything that is the most capital intensive and has the most systemic risk are the fixed so one of the, unintended consequences is you are left with a smaller number of banks, intermediaries in fixed income, which concentrates the power and the risk in the very asset classes they were the most concerned about, in another piece of that is -- and you see it now with the volatility that has gone on a market, that because there are fewer intermediaries, it is more difficult to process the amount of volume, so there is a liquidity crunch. i think that is another unttended consequences -- intended consequence. isanother thing i've noticed that everyone shies away, they want to run away from that systemically important tag that regulators are so desperate to put on them.
what does that mean for your world in terms of recruiting people to work in the big banks when they do have other options? there's not a lot going on in the big banks. our business is so focused on the buy side and i've said this before, i started the firm 13 years ago. bywas 50% sell side, 50% side. almost all of the activity is really for the larger had friends and -- hedge funds and asset messengers. >> rick heitzmann, you're nodding your head, is a simple regulation, capital requirements and done? >> when you try to regular too much, you see in exposure and in the private market to fixed income with things like lending club and prosper and others, so the harder you squeeze, the more that gets out. we see the similar thing in the private equity market with gompanies waiting to

performance method of compensating people. no performance, no big bonuses. i think the sell side just won't be necessarily that differentiated. >> i hear so much conversation over the deferral of bonuses. americans do not like that. we want the money now. >> that is not going to change. three years, the amount just keeps getting bigger. he getst at which deferred gets smaller, so last year you had after $100,000 bonus, 50% got deferred in cash and 50% got deferred in stock and you're right, $100,000 after-tax is not that much to pay tuition and make your mortgage payment. that is not getting better. >> we're going to continue with deferral, but then after three years of paying it sort of clicks in and becomes an annuity. are we there yet? where it is an annuity after
regulation of dodd-frank? of thes not an annuity absolute numbers are not that big, and they are not dot i think juxtaposing that to the buy side, we see more hedge funds deferring compensation on the buy side. differences a gets reinvested in the fund. your net worth is not a bank stocks, it is invested in the fund that you work in. >> ilana, both carl icahn, 5:30 tonight with stephanie ruhle, all of the focus is on bill andan, and carl icahn einhorn and all the rest of them -- the average hedge fund person -- what do they make? >> does not make -- >> $150,000? >> average of the top 25 or average across -- think there is a
massive delusion that anybody out there is making bill ackman money. i do not buy it. >> if you were at a fund that has outside performance, you will get paid. >> what does the average guy make? >> there is no average because they're different performance -- ap ha hedge funds come great performance, paid seven figures. fund without great performance is based salary. there is nothing to pay people. and they should be ok with that because in great years they will get the big bucks and if they don't have good performance, they should not get paid. >> bring it over to the sell side. guys at the top of every major firm in trading or making all the money. different all that it was, as you know, pre-crisis. and the sell side does pay with an advantage of each other, so you do not have as much variability. >> is the dynamic i
