7:06 am
is the only one who is out there who has to lower inflation. tom: where all are the fault lines -- where are the fault lines? the tone has been set. the book is iconic. where are the fault lines? mike: you still have overvalued equity markets, and a lot hot money has flowed through the equity markets. a lot of that has been going out, causing start market -- stock market dislocations. tom: what did you learn from professor fisher? carl: there was a subtle shot president york fed said is bow, where he would not say it is less likely or more likely we would raise rates going into the september meeting, where dudley said it is less likely going into that interview.
7:07 am
it was a little bit of let's not react to the latest volatility. tom: let's bring the show to a total halt. why does this language, the semantics, matter? from more likely, less likely, to several, a few? carl: the fact that stanley fischer shows the same words as dudley and kind of rolled it back -- ruben,is is like robert problematic -- mike: he outlined the two parameters of what the fed is looking at. one is inflation. he said there is good reason to believe inflation will move higher as the forces holding down inflation dissipate further. therefore cast is inflation is still going to go higher. ir forecast is that

inflation is still going to go higher. everybody is looking at friday as the key to whether the fed moves. if we get a good number, the bets will all start going in the direction of a fed move. we have had lower than expected jobs mongers -- jobs numbers. the seasonal affected number could be a pr problem for them. carl: it is said that this will data because the employment survey period was before all the volatility in the market picked up. they want to see if the volatility continues and if sentiment starts to sour either at household level or -- mike: they will not have that data. if we are still seeing the markets gyrate, then they may hold off. if not, they all, to a person, told us out there that they will
7:09 am
not pay attention to the markets. carl: it is really trying to -- ,onnie: what do we need to see michael, or what did you infer from what stanley fischer is seeing? mike: the average in the last quarter years is 44,000, so if you came in at 180 -- they always get revised higher, but that will be a visual problem for the markets and for the fed if it comes in that low. they are thinking it is going to come in better than 200,000, but that is made a demarcation point for people to start to worry. carl: i think they like 200,000 or better, but i think that with 175,000 or better they are still in the clear. 150,000 or lower, they have a problem. mckee, whatever the jobs report is, how would the market react after what we are seeing the last four weeks? mike: if the jobs report is
7:10 am
strong, it will start pricing in a fed move and you will see bond yield move higher. sox will go lower. do anythingoes not on september 17, then we will see a big rally. people will start to worry again about the fed. backmichael mckee, from jackson hole. mike: they still have problems. the case against further delay. tom: this is such a geek show. i cannot believe it. stay with us, folks. worldwide, "bloomberg surveillance." ♪
