5:01 am
of you. francine: this was the curtains will change at the white house. bloomberg news. we have plenty. taylor: several thousand people smashed windows and damaged cars on the second night of demonstrations. there were protests in a number of other cities, including new york and chicago. donald trump called them rational protesters incited by the media. he said they are very unfair. donald trump selection means talks for the tpp will be put on hold. the trade commissioner spoke to reporters in brussels. president, wew don't really know what will happen. we have strong reason to believe biggestll be not the

irony for the u.s. administration. taylor: this would eliminate tariffs and increase regulatory cooperation. russia's cautioning against excessive optimism. up president -- disagreements will continue after donald trump takes office. he said relations are at the lowest point in decades. taliban militants launched an attack on a german consulate in afghanistan. they killed six people before being driven off by special forces. there were no german casualties. the taliban says this is retaliation for the germans assisting a u.s. air raid last week. global news 24 hours a day powered by more than 2600 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries, this is bloomberg. i am taylor riggs. bloomberg. to get to the treasury markets are closed today. we will show you moments of
5:03 am
silence at the beginning of the next hour. the euro is weaker. there is a turn it to this friday. the vix is 1531. you forget where the dow was a week ago. the mexican peso shows the emerging market weakness. francine: this is my picture and i am focusing on the emerging markets. this is the selloff we are looking at. it's deepening concerns the developing economies will face capital outflows and weaken exports. let's say the donald trump -- riment tom: be nice. over to the bloomberg very quickly, this is the e.m. story. dollar peso, this is the complacency of a good nine or 10 years. this is a big deal. where can it go? three standard deviations out,
5:04 am
it's an interesting point. right there, we are not there yet. a little bit of an unraveling. we are looking at others as well. francine: from what i've heard about policy, the last two or three days is this definite finance spending we are expecting plus tax cuts, there is a resemblance to the reagan era physical policy. where are taking us back to 1976. i know you like history. deficit as percentage of gdp is the underlying. you can see what we've done so far. it's a good chart. it's the reagan chart. this is something -- can he really do it? let's get more on the president-elect we are joined by michael mckee.
5:05 am
first of all, let's start with you. what we learned in the last 24 hours? michael: we haven't learned a lot. we learned that he can bury the hatchet with barack obama. beyond that, we don't know where donald trump is going other than he is going to propose some sort of tax cut and some sort of infrastructure spending. the markets are betting on this. we see the emerging markets react to the kind of inflationary pressures that might generate which would lead to higher interest rates here. thatine: when i showed chart, it brought me back to something you were talking about earlier on. differentvery positions. >> reagan came in his being
5:06 am
governor for eight years. he had strong policy people around him. we don't know much about donald trump's associations, the people who will be helping them. we know that he has made some commitments. one is an infrastructure package that will produce jobs theoretically. he hasn't said much about the deficit. no one really has. he hasn't said how he is going to pay for these things. is narrow in terms of its margins. assert itself to when they see a new president. i think we are going to see that happen as well. you are the democrat from kansas. i believe there are four left. if you were to run into secretary clinton hiking, what would you say? >> i would say nothing. i might go back there and run again.
5:07 am
it's very interesting. if you look at the demographics of the election, rural america voted overwhelmingly for trump. rural/urban divide. she was not able to crack that. that is one of the major things that probably cost her the election. michael, what is your observation on this? michael: we are in a real experiment, the likes of which we have not seen since ronald reagan. we don't have any idea how this is going to play out. reagan had a radical economic proposal. the idea that if you cut taxes it would what people to work in it was something that had not been done before. we are going back to , cut taxesl policy and increase spending. francine: are the markets giving
5:08 am
donald trump time? do they like some of the policy? of what's happening is people are reacting in real-time to the fact that changes going to happen and it's going to be big. i think you saw that in the aftermath of the election. the initial reaction would be old-fashioned playbook. it was we are going to see treasuries rally and stock arc it's climb because there is uncertainty. people woke up and said this is different. very quickly, within hours, people said you have to think about what the actual policy implications. this is the first step in that direction. clear, you arees going to see more uncertainty in the market. tom: the crime is you have to get up early this morning. you are between two political guys this morning. in their world of change, is
5:09 am
your world a level change or can the vector continue higher for the equity market? is this just a one-off level change in bonds, whatever, is there a vector to this change as well? i think we are going to have to wait and find all of this out. the tension between the things that are actually more difficult for a new president to achieve but could grow the economy, things that might be easier in the short run. francine: is volatility back thanks to donald trump? >> we will see more of this risk on risk off pattern. past, this was really driven by the pattern of central-bank behavior. i think now we are going to see policy. is your only like one week after brexit. francine: the violent reaction
5:10 am
we saw on brexit didn't happen here. i'm not sure why. when you look at the impact that this election could have on the world, it's huge. brexit is contained. this is a huge economy. michael: it may be because of brexit we are not seeing this. the economic data started coming in better than expected. i know from talking to people on wall street, maybe this will be that bad. trying to talk in the previous hour. i asked if there were parallels between donald trump. he said no. what are the parallels between donald trump and breaks it? parallel is the great anxiety of the working class, especially people over 50 years old who have seen technology and
5:11 am
globalization have an impact on their lives. it's created that anxiety. it in do anything about our system of government where we have the separation of powers and a congress that's not going to sit idly by. >> i think there is a view now that the standard establishment doesn't have the answer to key questions. a lot of the electorate decided they want change, whatever that means. to the overpriced hotel in new york and there is your department of agriculture. how do you form a cabinet? give me the back story on how abouttually -- forget it secretary of treasury. >> people have got to want to serve. in the administration of reagan and clinton the, people wanted to come in to government. do you think establishment
5:12 am
republicans will line up behind mr. trump? >> i think they will. i heard the name bob corker as possible secretary of state. he would be a great secretary of state. i think donald trump is smart enough not to want to put incompetent people in his cabinet. francine: thank you so much. coming up later this hour, we speak to the executive chairman. we will have his take on this emerging market round and what donald trump means for developing economies. this is bloomberg. ♪

5:15 am
francine: our last week in new york and then tom joins me in london next week. tom: i'm leaving america. francine: be nice. they had a higher earnings and it's the health insurance unit. the german company has been selling less profitable operations. the world's largest entertainment company had a rare stumble. disney is predicting that growth will pick up next year. the company posted lower revenue in the most recent quarter. part of that was due to lower ad sales at a drop in subscriber at its cable networks. >> there are a couple of , the cost of the new nba contract for espn and we don't have a star wars saga film
5:16 am
in 2017. we think the company is headed in the right direction. 17 is an anomaly and a lower growth year. ivlor: they were hurt calendar, the core the just ended with one week shorter. that sure bloomberg business flash area. tom: rich greenfield is a genius this morning. he nailed it. francine: we have to focus on it. it's getting lost in all of our coverage about donald trump. donald trump could shift the game for a lot of european banks. they are rallying on him having lighter regulation and higher lending rates. let's bring in our economist. problem is that european banks have a lot of regulation. repealsresident elect regulation in the u.s., the
5:17 am
european banks are going to suffer yet again. >> yes. there is a lot we don't know about how free president trump to tear uply be years of regulation and reform that have already been implemented. the benign view is that somehow there is a closing of this that opens up, that europe gets its act together. arguments about brexit fade when you look at the priority of getting a regulation at the banks. there is so much that we don't know. there is so much global about this drive for reform. a lot of what we see is panic buying, positioning, hopes for growth. we just don't know. francine: do you think regulation will change because it will we see in spain? >> i think there is a lot left to negotiate this year.
5:18 am
i think regulators are already calling each other going what do we do about the issues left to negotiate this year? things like bonuses, we don't know if people are going to try to get everything nailed down to the floor now before trump or if there will be some sort of rollback that will happen prematurely. francine: we've got to keep it short this morning. tom: is it all clear for deutsche bank? i don't sense that at all. >> no. there is an idea that there is some kind of quick agreement. i'm not confident this changes the narrative much. i hope there is a quick settlement in the next few weeks. >> i think there is another point about the difference. in europe, monetary policy is still driving the boat. in the u.s., we are starting to see a shift where there is going to be fiscal policy and tighter monetary policy. helps the bank.
5:19 am
in europe, it's not so obvious that's what you'll get. tom: we will be back. we are trying to give you a friday per spec of into the weekend for a stunned america. we are thrilled that he will be with us. neil ferguson will be with us from london. stay with us. this is bloomberg. ♪

5:22 am
5:23 am
francine: you're looking at victors of london. we're trying to figure out the parallels between donald trump and brexit. the three means the pound has gone higher. let's get straight to the morning must-read arid this is from the former elgin prime minister. assumed for too long that it is cheaper and safer to let the u.s. solve its problems in our own backyard. given america's checkered foreign-policy legacy, we must discard disbelief. that it'sm is foreign-policy that will shape world in the global economy. we see the pound it on the back of that. how much you need to become a political analyst in this day
5:24 am
and age? >> i think you have to have an eye on politics, but think through the underlying impact. the political pressures are pointing toward de-globalization over the next two years. one implication is policy coordination that will be more rare and harder than it has been in the past. precedented levels of policy coordination after the financial crisis. there are fewer cases of it. you may see a less policy coordination. we don't know. that is one of many uncertainties that we face in the years ahead. currency wars are rarely intentional. they are usually the byproduct of other objectives people think they want until they realize they don't. tom: we have a major shout out to nail you -- nailed this. if i can drag this over here.
5:25 am
this is strong sterling. worldd just say it's the over. we go. this is part of the reflation trade. francine: it really makes a difference. chart, it's an excellent chart. i don't know if it will make brexit more complicated. we are betting on exports so much or whether it reinforces negotiating power. she might be the leader of the free world now. >> i don't think people are going to conclude that. we have a world where the reality is going to change week to week in people's minds. you were going to see flows of money and market movement that reflect those short-term points of view. because of the uncertainty and things around, there will be risk but opportunity if you can get it right. tom: i want to come back and
5:26 am
talk to seth masters about the issue of the moment for global wall street, the global reflation. there is a regime change. we have a new president in the united states, with all the drama we saw yesterday we need --e respect of area perspective. we have so much to talk about from kissinger to his wonderful books on a capitalism. it's great to have neil ferguson. from new york, this is bloomberg. good morning. ♪

francine: we are look to live pictures of capitol hill. it's amazing to see the pictures from the oval office. present obama is talking with the resident elect.
5:30 am
i still can't get that out of my mind. you can see s&p futures are down 158. more on the president-elect. taylor: in portland, a demonstration against the election turned violent overnight. thousands of protesters smashed windows and started the fire. the police called it a riot. it was the second night of anti-trump demonstrations across the country. thousands surrounded his building. cap said they were professional protesters incited by the media. he spoke of working closely with congress in his first meetings on capitol hill. cap had discussions with mitch mcconnell and paul ryan. he plans to work with congress to repeal obamacare and pass a massive infrastructure construction bill. the president told donald trump if you succeed, the country succeeds.
5:31 am
kurdish led forces are making advances on the assault. the islamic state stronghold, they are surrounding an area north of the city. us-lede being helped by airstrikes. --south korea, south korea organizers expect people demand that she resign. the government is concerned the protest may turn violent and illegal. leonard cohen has died. his career spanned five decades and he was best known for the ballad all india. 200 artists have recorded. more than 2000 recordings of the songs been made. he died in los angeles at 82. tom: leonard cohen it i would line him up with paul simon and
5:32 am
bob dylan. in the year of sergeant pepper, he really gave everyone the permission to be quiet and have a more silent poetry. he was absolutely original and different from paul simon. he changed the cadence of song and poetry in 1967 when his landmark album. we change the cadence right now and try to move you forward into december. holland joins us. he is -- he can't stand these highs in the market. how many charts have you and i seen with major street firms. we are going to have inflation. is it finally here? it's going to happen.
5:33 am
it's a function of what policies donald trump puts in place. if there is a significant tax cut for infrastructure spending, it's likely you will see inflation going up over the next few years. can impart itself in price change or goose real gdp. you take the inflation and it bring it right over to the revenue line? >> happy friday. the answer is yes. the most recent example we have seen is in 2009 in china where they bet 5% of their gdp on a stimulus package that was much different. theyfound the shovels and caused inflation. they spent the next two years trying to tamp down inflation. it could still happen. we have lost our memory of that. tom: the selection is a primal
5:34 am
scream. would you suggest the companies you own will initiate investment abroad or in the u.s. and if it's in the u.s., do they need a policy push from president-elect trump? do they go out and investigate? tom: i think we may have a private bodily -- probability. he has approached with his been a lack of leadership and forward movement among. people will find a way to make money office. francine: when you look at government bonds, there is a global on the that is tumbled since donald trump is been elected president. i'm looking at italian 10 year yields. where does this end? do we wait for inflation to come? will it move the on then. >> market usually do anticipate
5:35 am
what happens because that's their job. the big challenge is figuring out the winners and losers because those will be local, not necessarily global. there is a big policy divergent. it's not clear that you will necessarily see the same pattern everywhere. you probably shouldn't. what's happening in the u.s. makes a lot of sense. we will see reflation here given a president trump. there is a u.s., reason this is happening. francine: do you think it means the central banks will go back to the drawing board? we alluded to this with tom. if we see more physical spending, the eu has to do more? >> theoretically, that's an interesting idea. in the u.s., you have a president elected with a mandate for change. many of the governments outside the u.s. and the central banks
5:36 am
are not necessarily in the same configuration. assume that money will pour into u.s. equities because of what we are finding out his policies will be? >> we have one chance for a first impression. we got $1 trillion worth of losses in the bond markets globally this week. massive move up and stocks. people will continue until proven wrong to say that what the president-elect says he is going to do, he will at least do some of it. that continues to be the right trade. >> i think it's important also what policies are pursued. tax cuts and infrastructure spending is stimulative. it creates inflation and some real gdp growth. if there is protectionism another trade policy could undo
5:37 am
some of the stimulus. that's the same thing with immigration policy. we have to see with the overall picture winds up being. tom: i know you want to get down to have a cup of coffee. if you were to have a cup of we talk about a regime change in american politics. is there a regime change this morning in american banking, steeper yield curve, more normalcy. it's time to bring cash to shareholders? is that occurring? >> it's absolutely occurring. those who are cautious lose an opportunity here. i do think jamie will lose an opportunity. i hope he doesn't become the secretary of the treasury. i don't think he will. i think he would be a good treasury secretary.
5:38 am
i think at the end of the day, it's like a dream come true. how could things be so good from one week earlier in respect to jpmorgan. disclosure, michael holland hasn't sold stock in six years. seth masters has to run a massive combine. should our viewers worldwide change their portfolios as weekend? change their allocation? do you just try to get to the inauguration before you do something? michael: no. tom: give me something smarter. clients to tell our stay with their long-term allocations and to the extent tuning, thereine are things you should leave to people who are looking at the day-to-day and minute to minute movement of the markets.
5:39 am
this, we were slightly overweight equities, mostly u.s. and a little bit emerging markets. what we've done since then is move the bit more to the u.s. and taken that out of emerging markets. we had option allete in the portfolio. that worked out well. you have an opinion on emerging markets? seth: i think it's going to be specific to which market. the ones vulnerable. tom: you guys don't know what you're talking about. our guest next hour does. thank you so much for coming in today. what our team does in terms of getting us the right voices, he will join us from templeton. we will do that from a divide. this is bloomberg. good morning. ♪
5:40 am
5:41 am
5:42 am
francine: we are here in new york with tom keene. we saw that clearly in the charts today. developing economies will face weakening exports once donald trump is in the white house. someext yes -- guest says policies good and if it emerging markets. he joins us now from dubai. it's great to have you on the program. becausel be slammed investors will say if donald trump puts his policy in place, i want to be in the u.s., not emerging markets. mark: i think that's a good way.
5:43 am
that is a real problem going forward. the real challenge i think will be interest rates. i believe trump wants higher interest rates because the people who elected him want low interest in their banks savings periods for the fixed income market, that's not it. money will go back into the u.s. it will be temporary. in regard to the equity, that's a different story. i believe that equity will do fine as the u.s. economy will be doing fine. the u.s. administration will take a very practical approach in the negotiations with mexico, china, all these other countries. trade?e: what about a lot of these exports from emerging markets will be weaken. we saw yesterday central banks steppinga to indonesia
5:44 am
in to stabilize currency. mark: that's no question. that's a good point. what will happen is these emerging markets like china, india, others, depend more on their domestic market. commodities will continue to rise. that will be good for some emerging markets. i believe from a point of view of the administration stance in the u.s., it will be more practicality rather than a with exportstion and imports. assume free you trade is going to be much more complicated? mark: definitely. it will be much more complicated. agreements will go out the door. it will be more bilateral.
5:45 am
i believe it will be fine. donald trump is a negotiator. he will reach agreements with these countries. emerging markets coming out of the crisis based in u.s. flatrs, it's nothing but a to bear market. you can see the arc of markets, nott in based in their own currencies but u.s. dollars. when i look at that, i want you to state the case for e.m. investment or do you have to move to the emerging market known as the united states of america? mark: if you look at the last three years, there's no question emerging markets over performed. if you look at it from january,
5:46 am
i think it will continue for very good reasons. first, population structure is younger. there is great growth in consumer spending. secondly, the internet is having an incredible impact and the transfer of technology is very big now. third, emergent markets are growing at double the rate of the united states and europe. , i believe you're going to get reform in these countries. tom: this is critical. if we have a currency war within the macro economics of the global economy, do you have to own emerging markets hedged against currency depreciation? do they need to affect every trade with a currency hedge? mark: in some cases that will be necessary. some currencies will continue to get weaker. there are many currencies in the emerging's markets that are
5:47 am
getting stronger against the u.s. dollar. i think they will stabilize at these levels. francine: this cannot be good news. talk to me about the countries that are going to suffer if the policy we think donald will push through become reality. mark: i can't think of any country's that would really suffer badly. the proof is in the pudding. it will really depend on what kind of negotiations they place. let's take mexico for example. if you look at the situation, it looks higher. donald trump is going to build the wall. i don't think these things will come to pass. i believe that the end of the day he will make an agreement with mexico which will be mutually beneficial to both countries. i want to bring up the mexican peso again. i showed this chart earlier.
5:48 am
we are almost up three standard deviations on the latest run-up of x ago. this is back a year and a half. is there an opportunity where a truly unravels based on policies by republicans in washington? mark: i believe you can see the mexican peso has a great opportunity. the volatility is incredible. if you can catch it at a low level, you can probably make a lot of money speculating on just the currency. let's say the mexican peso gets week. exports will do very well. exports are not going to stop. they are going to continue. i think we have to look and what the policies are. francine: let's wait for the details. will there be a lot more volatility from now on, not only
5:49 am
in equities and currencies but also emerging markets? mark: i think you have to differentiate between fixed income and equities. equities in emerging markets have tremendous opportunities. they are much cheaper and i mentioned the growth and all the other factors. thank you so much. we greatly appreciate your perspective this morning. michael holland will continue with us. we have a lot to talk about. we will go to london for remembrance at the top of the next hour. joining us in the next hour, neil ferguson on perspective in washington. stay with us. this is bloomberg ♪

tom: how will behavior change? he bought a big french company yesterday -- 18 months ago. i think it was two years ago. how do the multinationals adapt and adjust to president trump and not an isolationist, but it uniquely domestic administration? michael: a cautious sigh of relief with respect to the headwinds he has been facing. he did this wonderful op-ed in the wall street journal saying we have nothing but headwinds as people running businesses. we have to get used to that and deal accordingly and do what's best given the constraints. tom: the people that voted for mr. trump, nobody expected them to vote. you look at the people that voted in ox county, they voted

francine: we have just observed two minutes of silence. armistice day commemorates every the and of hostilities on the western front of world war i. it's particularly important every year. this is why in the u.k. they take it very seriously for veterans day, to remember the fallen over the last century. it's more important than ever because of foreign policy and the uncertain world.
6:03 am
tom: i think every year there is a different tinge to it. this year is the stunning events of brexit and in the united states. what's interesting is each nation is different. is so good on the compare and contrast of veterans day. to me, it's that church in the strand. it's just remarkable to me the royal air force went inside that church. as a tourist, that's the uniquely reddish moment. wars are fought on different fronts. it's good to be different for people that lived through it. tom: it's veterans day in the united states. there is a moment of silence here. we need in this friday and into the weekend to readjust and recalibrate. our first word news on mr. trump. taylor: police in portland say an anti-trump demonstration

hoovered institution. the great degeneration is one of your books. the degeneration that got us to this historic election in america? >> i tried to sum up the selection a while back by saying the american voters had a choice between snafu and foobar. i think that is what hillary clinton was offering. change to say a dramatic to the status quo which was donald trump's pitch. thats got to such a point there were enough voters ready to gamble on donald trump because of their dissatisfaction with the current policy not just in the last eight years, but the last 16 years. this was a repudiation of the

bush era. tom: in your study of regime change in cultures, what is your immediate disappointment for the new regime? there is going to be an inauguration and all that. when does the first disappointment set in for a republican president, a republican president -- senate, and eight republican house. niall: i'm trying to work out. therepublicans control entirety of the key institutions of the federal government. they also have extraordinary strength if you look at state legislatures and governorships in what's not to like from a republican vantage point? the issue is if donald trump's agenda can be aligned with the agenda of his own party since he is such a candidate. he is a protectionist.
6:08 am

he can boost demand in the economy cyclically. trend growth. that's where i want to go. the idea of stimulus is one off. it may be gets them to the elections in 2018. that doesn't change the trend that was the cause of the primal scream of america. >> if he stimulus is part of the infrastructure, if it's well if the regulation takes some of the shackles being held act that, there could be some improvement. the lack of x and jerk, the lack

richard nixon's reputation in 1968 wasn't exactly a golden one. he was well known as tricky dickie. rockefeller said he's the president of the united states. you can't really refused to serve. i think a lot of people who have criticized trump during the campaign. i was one of them. they will now say he is the president-elect and we all our loyalty to the president elect because the constitution has been followed to the letter. now we need to work with him before whatever our bombs. that was rockefeller's advice to kissinger niall: the president-elect is here. screamere was a primal about the ascent of money and the ascent of the 7%, not the 1%. how does he get the republican
