8:17 pm
one of the arguments about tax reform is quicker inflation. >> definitely. it is interesting to look back on history where markets have gone, where inflation has been driven out of the global economy. the crisis of the 1970's and the impact of globalization. if you go back to the mid- 1960's, there is a situation where policy was very easy. the u.s. economy had full and inflation suddenly took off in the 1960's. a fiscal policy came in as well. that bit of infrastructure spending, getting money back into the economy gives it a little boost. you get inflation back.

8:21 pm
lower, and long conventional policy, you have negative rates across the yield curve. as big anably not issue as it might have been 10 years ago, when the central bank were able to operate in the low and negative inflation environment in some countries. normalizing policy when it is no longer a crisis occurring come if you look at growth around the recessionary.ot it is a long way from zero. we can certainly scope central banks to normalize policy in the context where inflation tends to be a lagging indicator. inflation actually starts moving and you are a fair way behind the curve. rishaad: thank you so much for joining us. you can catch all of our interviews on tv .

9:00 pm
haidi: we are waiting for china numbers when it comes to retail sales, industrial production. rishaad: we got them. haidi: in fact, we do have those numbers coming through. we are expecting a pickup in retail sales. we did not get that. 10.5% is what we were expecting. 10% is what we got. let's get the rest of the numbers. tom mackenzie is with us in beijing. reporter: that is not insignificant when it comes to the retail sales, increasing 10% for the month of october. the survey had been for each ofece -- for an increase 10.5%. some of the other top lines we data cameg, 60 asset
9:01 pm
in line with expectations, an increase of 7.3% year to date. that was in line with expectations. a smidge below what we saw in september, 7.5%. industrial production came in at 6.2%, just below the estimates of 6.3% and below september's number of 6.6%. let's loop back to those retail sales. an increasingly important part of the economy is the heavy industry side of slows down marginally. we did see that blowout number of the singles sales, more than $25 billion of sales over the weekend. there has been a question as to whether or not softening wages and a pickup in inflation to soften1.9% will start to
9:02 pm
the upside for chinese consumers. still double digits, still a fairly strong number, but not insignificantly off that forecast. in terms of industrial production, we did see the october numbers when it came to exports seeing a bit of softness. not a big surprise that number has come in slightly lower than what we saw in september, 6.2% for industrial production. that is the lowest number i believe since 1999. fixed asset investment always important to look at how much of a role the private sector has played in terms of investment. we have seen in the past the state sector stepping up with the private sector has pulled back. in terms of the growth picture, overall the forecast is still for end of year full-year growth of around 6.7%. 6.8%. 6.9%,
9:03 pm
this data suggests a moderate slowdown. there may be some questions around retail numbers if that continues in the month ahead, that softness in the retail sector. that may raise a slight concerns about the growth picture here. not altogether surprising in terms of the data on this. that retail number stands out, 10% increase opposed to a 2.5% -- 10.5% forecast. the single day effect, we've got this $25 billion in , i suppose we've got to look at the aggregate and draw some conclusions. what is your view? fairi think that is a very point. i know friends of mine who have sales on hand that selected
9:04 pm
goods they want to buy and had it on hold, wouldn't press the button until that weekend. it is likely people were sitting on their hands, waiting for that 24 hour sales extravaganza to kickoff before taking any purchases. in terms of the overall data set , i think it feeds into this consensus view among economists you are going to see a moderate, gradual slowdown towards the end of the year, this 6.7% number for the full year. we've heard the head of the pboc expecting slightly higher growth numbers. the window remains open for policymakers to continue the deleveraging campaign. it doesn't look like this data set would derail that to any significant degree. the likes of bloomberg intelligence saying they don't expect a benchmark rate rise, but they do expect continuing moderate tightening in china to continue that the risking -- that de-risking process.

control in the story, that has arguably been taking away some of the capacity out there. how much has actually done in that regard? in different sectors the situation is probably different. i think there is still significant room for capacity reduction in the steel sector. at the same time, there had already been a lot of reductions seen. also there has been some new capacities building. it is mixed. rishaad: let's go to the retail sales side, which is much lower than the consensus. our beijing bureau chief theested it is arguably singles' day phenomenon the people decided to wait for november 11 in order to get the deals they really wanted. on top of that we had this national people's congress that maybe arguably kept people off the streets as well. guest: i think the retail sales

data has been surprising to the upside, which was reasonably strong. we do expect the november numbers will be solid on the back of this singles' day sales. to bolster the numbers in november, is the idea. guest: it has been contributing 2/3 of economic growth -- it has been intervening -- it has been contributing 2/3 of economic growth. i think this trend of consumer upgrading that has started a few years ago will continue, and especially spreading into the areas in china. haidi: one half of the picture
9:15 pm
is the pickup in retail consumption. is that strong enough to make up for the fact you are seeing a slowdown when it comes to industrial production? when you take a look at property construction, that is quite a significant slowdown when you take a look at what happened in the first half of the year to year to date now. guest: number one is we do expect consumption demand to remain solid. --ber two, i think will fit i think if we look at the overall economy, we are forecasting growth this year, so demand will continue to be supported. thirdly, we do expect investment to remain steady into next year even though the latest data suggest continuing moderation. to 2018, there are a number of factors to support housing

9:17 pm
that is where the credit coda continues to be reduced -- credit quota continues to be reduced. financing data showed relatively steady credit growth. rather than significant deleveraging, it actually suggests a continued credit demand and supports to the real economy. if you look at the year on year basis, i think loan growth has remained roughly stable. moderation -- gdp has been pretty good. far we havenk so 6.8%, and that is our forecast for the full year. we do look for some -- actually the current slowdown is on track to our full-year forecast. next year i think there could be

9:19 pm
this is a mantra they have been preaching for the past six years. are we getting that? guest: i think if we look at the structure of gdp growth, consumption has been playing a much important role. i mentioned 2/3 of the overall growth. i think certainly investment has always played an important role to stabilize growth. on the back of this global synchronized recovery, demand has been coming important. all in all we have been seeing improvement in the rebalancing of the chinese economy. rishaad: i want to move to one reform, which has been heralded as the start arguably of china opening up its financial services industry. that would perhaps go into other industries as well and moved to more liberalization. that is how foreign banks would
9:20 pm
get majority stakes. what did you take away from that reform? guest: i think somewhat it was in line with expectations. we know in the u.s. economic dialogue it has been years since there has been a demand for china to further opening up its services sector, and potentially the financial services sector. encouraging is very to see the government put a timetable on the financial sector liberalization, which be helpful to improve the competitiveness of chinese financial sectors. rishaad: do themselves a favor, and other words, you could argue. guest: yes. if you look at the chinese economic development in the past three decades, reform and opening up have always been doing good for the chinese economy and helps boost the medium-term, long-term growth potential. i think that is the direction
9:21 pm
the government and the world will continue to follow. provided that it does not hurt the domestic industry and does not affect the financial stability, if we look at some other fronts and the capital control, we expect steel will still be in place and there will be a gradual process depending on the micro stability of the chinese economy. rishaad: baby steps. thank you very much indeed jian chang. coming up, there's an upset energytly in the forecasting, the biggest oil and gas boom in history. details on the way. ♪

more oil with the same kind of capital costs and therefore be up to make oil at lower prices. instead of the shale boom plateauing out, now they see the technological revolution as allowing it to really unleash its full effect on the world. as you said, the u.s. might he a net exporter of fossil fuels by 2025, producing that hundred barrels from shale wells alone. rishaad: where does this leave opec? iea saying $83 a barrel for 2025. is that realistic now? reporter: it seems high compared to the $68 it is now. what they see is that every

oilfield in the world has basically natural declines as time goes on. they are looking at growing inand with natural declines supply, meaning prices will have to go up to incentivize new drilling. but with this shale boom moving like it is now, they actually see a little less need for the rest of the world to come in. big did say after 2025 is when they think the call on opec oil is going to be increased because shale can't keep pushing on forever. rishaad: that will depend on what opec will decide at the end of this month in vienna. this is what we have. china's shanghai deposits down a nearly 15%. hang seng pretty much unchanged.
