higher wages for average workers during his speech in indiana. good morning. a revelation and shake up the way americans pay their tactic -- taxes. are you as shakeup as donald trump says we should be? >> the challenge here is the devil is in the details. we have become accustomed to grant statements followed by little follow-through. the one slight difference in this case is that republicans were born to cut taxes. the question is what is the extent of that and is it just tax cuts or is it some sort of fundamental reform? anna: it seems markets are eager to trade without the details. we saw the russell outperform
thosew companies, all of outperforming. in the last couple of weeks as we talked more about that that happened again. guest: there's a certain amount of that. we must recognize that the russell has outperformed -- and some of that is positioning. cover some people to of their positions. there is something in that and the reality is the russell 2000 valuations are still very stretched. relative to the s&p. mark thatre is one thebroken, we did it in treasury market breaking 2.3%. there is a shakedown in the european markets. but on markets want to know how you will pay for something.
do you expect steeper curves, a more aggressive move from the bond market when it gets more detail or until he gets more detail? guest: what happens in markets is it is not necessarily happen for some time and when it does it happens really quickly and aggressively. the answerould frame to that question is at the beginning of this year one could have postulated the fed would raise the rate three or four times which is what they have done and 10 year treasuries have to 2.m 2.62 -- down bond markets are where you have the greatest risks and complacency. iwould reframe that and say think inflation is trending back toward 2%. and itig risk
complacency, where do we end up on that? guest: when one looks at markets, the real challenge is how bonds attract investors who are less willing or able to take risks. the greatest risks are embedded and it is not too difficult to see u.s. treasuries at three and above 3%. with -- mr.u concur gillespie would suggest 3% is attainable. what james bullard made the speech in the past and he you'rem surprised that not more with the fed. r we underpricing inflation pressure in the u.s.? guest: we would agree with that. is,n where unemployment given where the trends in gdp growth are, we think inflation
is underpriced and we would have normal inflation positions in portfolios. it is not that expensive tampa man and it provides you a good risk return opportunity. anna: what is the time horizon? think about where the projections are, the market is pricing in 121.5 hikes between now and this time next year. we think that is the pessimistic view of what the fed could do. manus: the other big set piece is corporate dollars repatriated to the u.s. so we think about it and call it $1 billion. i can still borrow 3.5%. will they bring it home, will it make a material change because -- last few greater asians
reiteration's, money was spent on buybacks. it was great for equities but it may not be so great for capital expenditure. guest: the key, this goes back to the devil being in the details and the challenge has been is you have some sort of perpetuation of -- ray patry flow to it would shareholders. anna: there might be a need to have that kind of detail in there. does the trump trade push the dollar higher? we had a chart earlier talking about maybe we need a steeper curve. guest: we think curves are flat in the u.s. manus: it has been tracking, the
dollar has been tracking the curves. guest: we are surprised at how flat they are. anyre not factoring in risk. the one challenge to the stronger dollar view is it is based under the assumption that other central banks do not follow the fed to some extent. there is a perception the fed will raise rates but people are complacent. tank --ralian reserve the canadian banks have raised rates. we think that's the one thing we would say about the potential to rise materially is you need to know what other central banks will do in that environment. anna: thank you. manus: dissolving the diet. calling an early general election and we focus on the political risk in the world's
manus: it has gone to 20 p.m. in hong kong and 7:20 a.m. in london. are futures telling us about the start of trade? we have tax break optimism perhaps affecting european markets. the a's in session was down .2 of a percent with the oil prices weighing. bunds are on the move and the treasury in the u.s. is moving aggressively. the bund markets are on the march. more about that in moment. juliette saly has your business

might be? >> markets have got this probably right. equity markets have continued to rally and the yen is being broadly weaker. what we are saying is that possibility that of a winds is high and the probability of something materially changing is low. i would not use the word complacency. that is a good way to lose money. what we's -- would say is based on the data where looking at, we think there is a reasonable chance that he retains the market. anna: let's talk about other parts of the world. the political scene has been busy this year. radar, lurks the potential for an independence referendum. is this something that the
