4:06 am
theresa may and jean-claude ju ncker, there was a lot of anticipation ahead of it. some said that michel barnier had told them a breakthrough was imminent. the pound rose on that. at the meeting got underway, there was a point that theresa may actually called a positive the lunch and stepped out to call the d.u.p.'s arlene foster. the du.u.p. props up her government. they did not take any questions. they said, we could not reach a complete agreement today. basically, no breakthrough. they did not give a reason for the breakdown in talks, but we understand it was around the issue of the irish border and some stumbling blocks as well. peter, when it comes to the stumbling block that is the irish border, what are the main
4:07 am
points of contention? the main point of contention with the border is the republic of ireland wants regulatory alignment. so, in effect, there would be no difference between standards for the northern ireland. that would allow border checks on the frontier between the two countries. at the moment, there are no checks between north and south. yo ucaou can drive straight acrs the border. both sides want to avoid any sort of checks on thast border. mark: nejra, back to you in brussels. what happens now? we heard yesterday that negotiations will continue this week with the hope they will be some sort of conclusion by the summit on december 14 and december 15. does paint the timeline over the next 10 days. nejra: yeah, that's right.
4:08 am
jean claude juncker said this is not a failure, but a start to the final phase. they said they would continue talks this week and they were hopeful some sort of breakthrough could be reached by december 14 at the summit in brussels. the u.k. that wants to move the talk from divorce to trade. the irish prime ministers said if that breaks down in december we could also have an emergency summit in january and on the irish side, as peter was pointing to, we already have some comments this morning from the irish prime minister, very much suggesting that the agreement dublin made with the in any material way. that agreement was made prior to this lunch and broke down during this lunch after the call to arlene foster. it is really interesting what happens from here. nicola sturgeon has been
4:09 am
tweeting saying, perhaps this is the moment when we look at a softer brexit, where we actually remain in the single market and customs union. to avoid that hard border, northern ireland at the very least, would have to stay in the single market. this is the circle to reason a has to square. how she does that in a matter of days is anyone's guess, mark. mark: peter flanagan joining us out of the studio. s,holas brooks, peter thank you for joining us today. check out sterling, and a friday through today. we so that they can move up yesterday ahead of the breakdown of talks. -- we saw that breakdown yesterday ahead of the breakdown
4:10 am
of talks. that a less confident deal will be struck within the timeframe? >> i am not necessarily more or less confident. it was always evident to me that this was going to be difficult. if you asked me if i was less confident than i was at lunchtime yesterday, of course i am, but to put a little bit of a tongue-in-cheek comment here, this is the problem we have with the policy. it is not that easy to accomplish, but if i take the market view, and that is the reason pound sterling is going down, the market wants to see progress. it does not really care about political difficulties. the market wants to see a reasonable and workable relationship between the u.k. and the eu. to get there, you need to have talks about that relationship. therefore, every time you see progress being made towards that, the market likes it.
4:11 am
anytime we see any kind of stumbling blocks in the way, pound a sterling trips as well. -- pound-sterling trips as well. mark: how would you solve the irish problem? how would something that has not been achieved in months be achievable in a few days? >> i certainly don't have an answer for that, but i would say u.p. is playing a careful game and recognize they have got some leverage. but you also have to look at a bigger picture. the last thing they want is a new election. a labor win with corbyn in front. they do not want the tories to fall apart taste off of what is going on today, so i think they butplaying a bit of a game, ultimately, they will find some
4:12 am
sort of fudge that will allow them to have a transition deal. mark: if we get a fudge, peter? sterling? >> as i said earlier, the sooner we get connected to trade talks. trading at three or four months ago. mark:? nicholas? >> looking at the longer perspective, it is hard to predict. medium-term, i am relatively bearish on sterling, which i guess is not the consensus. the bottom line is the u.k. is in about as good a place as it can't be right now with access to the single market and the global economy doing quite well. 2018,move forward into
4:13 am
will the global economy continue to move forward at the pace it is going right now? as investors look at what the u.k. may get in terms of a deal, it will never be as good as it is today. when you have a country with a current account deficit close to 5% of gdp, ultimately, i would say this currency is going to weaken. mark: we had the case last week when expectations started increasing on a deal and then next rotations were brought forth of a boe rate hike in 2014. i think it was november to september, i think it has gone back again since. dependingers change, on the success of negotiations. are they closely tied, or not? >> they are closely tied, but not in the way you are describing. i totally concur with the medium-term prospects for sterling and the u.k. economy
4:14 am
still look quite dire. and therefore, going back to your questions. scenario we create a where we get a trade deal that is positive for the economy, that will be positive for sterling as well. let's say we get something that is extremely liked by markets, sterling will rally on that, which puts downward pressure on inflation, which puts the bank of england in a position where they won't have to hike. and vice versa, that puts upward pressure on inflation. isa way, the bank of england in a uncomfortable position because the inflation picture we are currently having is not driven by the strength of the economy, but the weakness of sterling in particular and therefore, imported inflation and that is a conundrum they have to work with. mark: so, all things being equal, nicholas, when are you going along with the boe, which suggested a couple of rate hikes in the next three years? is that the next best guess now?
4:15 am
there is no visibility over the course of brexit. >> they want to reload, essentially. if things go wrong, they have something to do. but in terms of the underlying inflation trend, it is actually very weak. so, if you take the scenario of moderate growth in 2018, inflation coming down as the imported inflation affect staves out, assuming we don't see another drop in sterling, there is not a reason for them to raise much more. they might put in one or two more, but from an economic point of view, they don't need it. errk: nicholas brooks and pet schaffrik stay with us. up next, we will speak with stefano domenicali about the italian supercar's move into the lucrative suv market. this is bloomberg.

4:22 am
you can be very smooth and gentle in the city, or if you want to be more sporty on the track, you go to a different area. if you want to use it in the ice, yo cu can. you can use it as a supersmart car. car. a supersport i believe it is a moment when lamborghini will represent a more important position with regards to this business. so, it's an exciting moment. we know it is a big challenge for us, but it is very exciting. matt: your cars have become more and more accessible. you have the 12 cylinder beast which feels at home on the track. streetablemuch more car. and now this.
4:23 am
first of all, how many cars are you going to sell this car, and how many say in 2020? stefano: well, actually, this year will be another year for the company. we just need to wait for the last couple of weeks. the figures we are heading for in the end of the year is something unique and spectacular. we are going to have over 3700 units. we will have incredible growth, year on year. being an exclusive brand, it is important to be balanced in the growth. if you look at the effect of this model versus our situation, we are expecting that in 2019 with a full year of production with the super suv, we will more than double. that is something that is putting our heads on a different dimension. nobodyim of this car was
4:24 am
would have thought that in this at 10 yearsou look ago, nobody would have believed that the momentum was there. it doubles the perception of the brand. the young generation follows us in a tremendous way. just to give you a little detail. it is something we take as a responsibility. with this car we will in large our presence in the market. that is something incredible for us. tt: which markets do you think will be the best for you? u.k.,mall market like the you see a lot more lamborghinis driving around in london than beijing. is this going to help you in places like china and eastern europe? that we i would say start with say a double dimension on each single market. for sure.
4:25 am
just to give you a bigger image. the u.s. represents one of the biggest markets. in the u.k. that is this year the third market after japan, we are going to expect another big growth. but what is more important, we believe this car will open up new markets, new countries that will be part of the lamborghini family. so, a lot of excitement around the world. mark: when are we going to see a hybrid version? stefano: very soon. that is already planned. the second generation of this car will be a hybrid and that will be around 2020. that is the idea, 2021. that is the idea. mark: where are you going to take market share from? we are you going to conquer the most customers? i am talking about the competition. this is a time when aston martin
4:26 am
, ferrari, rolls-royce, they are all launching utility cars within the next three years. what differentiates you? and who are you going to take the market share of? stefano: i think in terms of differentiation, our elements are the usual. the zion, we have a strong personality. withve a super smart car -- design, we have a strong personality. we have a supersport car with a huge personality. i believe that we need to be sensational. to prove this car is something special, we will the customers and welcome them into our world. matt: how can you, i mean, ever
4:27 am
since lamborghini set out to best and so ferrari, he's always hit the automotive world over the head with a sledgehammer. i mean, amazing designs that surprise people. can you still do that? can you still live with that dna in a world where you need to be more environmentally friendly and sell more cars to a diverse clientele? stefano: i think this is the biggest challenge, but for sure. we want to be, as you know very well, we want to be different from the others. we need to find the right balance. our idea is to keep it together because that is really something
4:28 am
-- that is what the customer wants. we can't forget one thing. willure, the super suv be a stepping twill into the future. -- a stepping tool and to future growth. we might have different names maybe, but with a different concept, for sure. that makes the difference of our brand. matt: i always wonder when i talk to companies like lamborghini about dealership networks, it's such a sensitive -- i mean, your dealership network is like your family to you because of the size of it. how much are you going to have to grow? will you need another dealership strategy? do you have a new concept? what is your dealership network going to look like?
4:29 am
stefano: absolutely. we we are large in the family members. next year we will have 165 members. today we have a very important meeting in 10 minutes to meet with all of them just to share the new vision of lamborghini. -- we cannot have success without a relationship with them. they know the territory, they know the customer. they know every country is different and we need to ensure the connection is really strong. for sure, we are shaping a different situation. we need to make sure the level of service is what the customers are expecting for this. altogether, we need to accept. today, the line, we moved the bar higher and that is something we need to do altogether. matt: can i just quickly asked, i know a lot of lamborghini
4:30 am
owners by one and then another i would say officially we are opening orders today. unofficially, more than the first year is already covered. it it's a good sign and really positive. matt: thank you, the ceo of lamborghini. of thank you so much for joining us. i am going to go back to radio. mark: great to see you. thanks for coming on. that was the chief executive of lamborghini. we have some breaking a net out of the u.k. services growth slowed from november. from 55.6 ino 53.8 october.

4:33 am
out. i wouldn't say it's completely a done deal. when you look at where we are going based on what we know, most of the analysis puts the gdp impact over the next couple of years at .3 percent at the most. longer-term based on it, we will see a large increase in the debt level, at the moment i think there is a lot of trading going on. people are moving into sectors they perceive are high tax financials. i think this is very short-term stuff. mark: how does it play out? expectations have been tempered. how does it play out? given that every day we are getting new bits of information? we talked about the
4:34 am
flattening of the u.s. treasury curve. the question, one of the biggest questions for 2018 is if that can reverse. in my opinion, that is driven by two things. , hows the further funding is that going to impact the treasury at the longer end of the curve? when the economy is doing well and in the short-term it receives another boost, how are rates going to develop. does that drive up inflation? that is 60 or 70 basis points. if two of these things are coming together, there is a chance the curve might restate them -- re-stephen.
4:35 am
nicholas: it's hard to say. i have a more bearish view of the cycle. the forecasts are for relatively strong growth. and someok at the isam of the leading indicators of the cycle, some of the indicators coming out of china, it's about as good as it gets as the industrial cycle. if that starts to moderate next except,en if inflation it always picks up with a lag, the fed may feel it needs to tighten. if markets focus on the growth outlook, we may see a further flattening. what isthink that's already in the making. >> that is not that right. it, what you see
4:36 am
is the inflation expectation component is extremely low. if we get any risk of a change of that, even in the short term, the impact on the treasury market in particular could be meaningful. of the feddetails emerging on a daily basis, whether it's a regional president or a fed governor. nicholas, the makeup of the fed is going to be much clearer over the next year. how will it lean? how will it differ from the current makeup? policies?hat impact in the end, all of these governors are working with their research analyst and the people doing the work on the street. they are going to be getting the same information they were getting when janet yellen was

4:45 am
it doesn't really matter. all of the power lies with the heads of state and the national legislature. there is not a huge amount of support for this. this is the perfect point in the election cycle. mark: i'm sure german government will be formed sooner rather than later. it's the perfect opportunity to make reform. while thee grasp it economy is in good shape? nicholas: this view the time. it's clear that france is creating innovation. germany has always been the issue. since the coalition fell apart in germany and the liberals, it looks like the stp is going to play more of a role, one would of said that's it. were not going to get much on the budget or integration.
4:46 am
i'm not saying they're going to go that far, but there is a utter chance we are going to be moving toward some sort of integration. previously i would say the likelihood was close to zero. mark: meanwhile, the ecb carries on until september. peter: the ecb is not interested in a cliff edge scenario. publiclyrios have been talked about, a short tapering. something like that. i would not with that beyond the realm of possibility. that satisfies both needs, getting to an end in a reasonable timeframe and preventing the cliff edge. nicholas: draghi has made it very clear he is focused on keeping stability and he will watch what's going on in the markets and the economy. if it needs to be more

the stock market has been declining and deleveraging. what is 2018 get a look like? nicholas: we are going to see slower growth. notgdp numbers in china are very reliable. it's pretty clear that the leadership in china correctly want to slow down the debt buildup. i don't think they want to see a sharp deal. they would like to slow down the debt. i think there is focus in these areas trying to clamp down on the nonbank financial institution lending. i suspect that will at the margin start to affect chinese growth in the local industrial cycle. when you look at measures like the credit impulse, it looks as if we've already seen some tightening. i'm not saying we're going to see a sharp slowdown in economic growth in china.

5:06 am
but it stalled over the issue of the irish border and what kind arbitrage we might see across that border. i will start with you, peter. willu think arlen foster be able to agree on something that will let this story through, or anything that leo brassica says with him will not be ok with arlene foster and the d.u.p.? >> a deal is still possible, but it seems the break yesterday has made it more difficult there. and the irish prime minister made it clear last night that island had agreed. and as soon as lunchtime, that turned around and that fell apart. text in there is a
5:07 am
place will step they are happy to make presentational challenges, but they are not interested in remanding that text too much. at this point, it seems anything the government might conceive now will be feeling the concessions of the d.u.p., which will be challenging for the irish government. a deal is still possible of course, but it is more difficult today. it will be interesting to see exactly what happens in the cabinet meeting later on and how the whips are able to finagle something with the d.u.p. theresa may is going back to on wednesday, but how would you describe the u.k. 's credibility in brussels this morning? nejra: i would say, how would you describe the u.k.'s and eu's credibility at this stage.
5:08 am
as we went into this lunch, there were mp's saying that michel barnier, the chief negotiator for the eu, so i breakthrough as imminent. we know this did not happen and is phone callth happened around lunch and things unraveled after that. junckerd, jean claude and theresa may both struck a positive tone, saying they will continue talking and reaching a deal before december 14th. that is when they want the talks to move to trade. there is also the issue around the european court of justice. tom: everybody agreed to disagree. i liked what i saw in one chart, the creative ambiguity of it all. what is the immediate to do list for prime minister may?
5:09 am
nejra: i would say the immediate find list is to somehow to a way to square that circle between what the d.u.p. wants and what the republic of ireland wants. how she will do then is the big question. the scottish first miniature nicola sturgeon tweeted this morning saying, may be the answer here is to put the soft brexit forward and keep them in the single market and customs union. tom: peter, i am on the edge of the 17th century here, or at least 1703. everybody is piling on prime minister may. you are in dublin. what will be that delicious tension between northern ireland and the republic of ireland? why should they cave in to london? peter: that's it. for dublin, they are not quite dug in, but the position has clear that they want to
5:10 am
guarantee they want a guarantee there will be no hard quarter after brexit. they set a solution would be if the u.k. were to remain in the single union and the customs market. the big thing with the d.u.p. is -- they have said repeatedly, anything that flows into northern ireland supplies the u.k. overall. if there is any kind of distinction between northern ireland being less a part of the united kingdom than scotland or wales, that is not acceptable to the d.u.p. so, they need to apply to the u.k. as a whole. guy: thank you, peter flanagan and nejra cehic, joining us out of brussels. streetst host, state
5:11 am
global advisor. i described the situation as confusing earlier. are you confused? >> pretty confused, but that ambiguity is a good one. when you get into a situation like this, everybody has heart, legal answers. you have to push things to the nth degree. in reality, the only thing that works in a case like this is a case of ambiguity. it a hard quarter? it is not a hard quarter. rick: it is a border. there is a customs rate between the two, but it is somehow applied differently. ine way you do it practice as opposed to theory. maybe that is a british pride matted point. guy: that is not what the irish are saying. the average want no border. and the issue, if they concede
5:12 am
theyoint, would look like claim downward the d.u.p.. -- would look like a climb down for the d.u.p. rick: you don't want to poke it too hard. both sides need to step down and have that ambiguity and practice what we want to have, which is tarade. lacaille will stick around. the trump travel been coming into effect. what's the take on that? we'll find it out. that is next in this is bloomberg. ♪

5:32 am
what is the skew worry, that odd part of the bell curve. what is the skew we need to talk -- pay attention to next year? tothe skew in relation insuring yourself -- volatility is low overall. if you want to buy emergency let insurance, that remains -- that has remained relatively expensive. there is little demand for emergency protection relative to the middle distribution. i think that is the point, a signal the investor may be concerned about that left tail event. tom: i want to go -- make sure this goes up on tv . it's my chart of the year, don't put up yet. the issue here, shorting the vix seems to be the single play based on perpetual quiet. will the quiet end next year? >> i think many would say many
5:33 am
investment strategies have an implicit short on the vix and i could be seen as storing up trouble for the future because of we have a rapid unwind of the vix and underlying, you have people scrambling to cover that. i think the implicit risk we should be concerned about even with positive fundamental macroeconomic backdrop. tom: here's the chart of the year and i zoomed in on it. this is the vix chart, an decay of in the normal the vix. it's a lot of mathematics we don't need to go into. basis,garde -- on a log it shows an acceleration of quiet. what is the signal we have gotten ever quieter in the vix of 2011? >> it's wasted money partly, but also really -- the relationship between the actual stock market and the vix and the volatility level of the equity market has
5:34 am
been low. you have enormous dispersion, so correlation is low and volatility is down and the two are linked. you've got an acceleration of this falloff in volatility that is worrying. guy: looking at a 3% drop on the vix -- any given day. what is the effect of that? bts are going to have phil and you will see big moves coming through. is the market ready for that? >> not enough to make a difference. if you have a series of those choppy moves over a couple of weeks and there was an underlying narrative that said something is changing -- maybe bond yields are rising or there's a recession on the way, then i think you would have trouble. one time 3% will not make any difference at all. guy: a lot of people are using volatility as a way of picking up extra to make their portfolio numbers look right.
5:35 am
there are too many people that don't understand the vix playing this market. do they understand the risks being taken? short take a look at the vix and how much money has slowed in there, is the market using relatively correctly? shouldn't it be there to just pick up a few extra pips. it should be there for another function. richard: we don't know what people are doing. they could be doing volatility arbitrage trade. guy: do you think they are doing that? richard: that's the point, we don't know. when you have a bit -- a very big move like in 1987, it fleshes out. there were many stories that came out after stock market correction. it needs to be quite a big one in order for some of these pieces of damage to become more evident. trades sinceparity the financial crisis and that
5:36 am
relies on this linkage between the asset classes remaining reasonably stable. do you worry that maybe some of these asset classes -- bonds, equities, start to get more out of kilter and you could end up with the quiddity problems? how do these volatility and risk trades work in a kind of period? richard: i think they require you to rebalance between things that have been more volatile and less volatile. that's a worrisome trade. i don't think we necessarily face liquidity problems. during risk parity, that strategy lived through a lot of different regimes of relatively quiet correlation between equities and fixed income. overmore money has gone in the past few years than has historically been in there. richard: you got this latent train -- trade. unfortunately, it's hard to down
5:37 am
the value of that potential trade. tom: this is extremely important and let's remind ourselves, state street global advisors know that there are billions of dollars exposed in this. ofguy's important question the 3% move in the s&p, if we begin with the model of the 11 vix and migrate rapidly and or and 18bility to 16 or a 1920 -- 19, 20 average vix, what is it mean for institutions like you? this is on -- unproven, infinite --isn't it? richard: we are not making bets on the vix. that's not part of our strategy in terms of asset allocation strategies or, if anything, we are using the vix rom and insurance perspective to an sure that if there is that tail event on the left side, we have a cushion. there are institutions that may be more affected, what it is
5:38 am
hard to pin down who is most likely to be impacted by this in terms of than clients. the important thing is to disclose -- try to be as clear as possible as to what the risks are. in 1987, do we know who is exposed or is there a shadow short vix market that you really don't know what's out there and what their nominal or derivative exposures are? to the extent that it is an exchange-traded market, there are certain data points you know about the vix. the ownership and how the dynamics would plan out if you had a sharp change, i don't think that is knowable. but we know we have a more regulated system and the contagion impacts on other actors like banks could feed into the credit system. that's in a very different space to where it was in 1987.

insurrection against the leadership of the house? >> that's a good way to put it. basically congressman meadow and the house freedom caucus decided they didn't like the way things were going, especially on the issue of the spending package, the two week deal to keep spending in the government until december 22 so they decided to hold the tax plan hostage and they can do that because there's only a slim margin and they had about 20 republicans looking to flex their muscles and they decided to get a little more time on the spending package to push it from december 22 to december 30 hoping they can get a better deal -- a tougher, more conservative deal when it comes to having a spending package that goes further into next year. they are worried that republicans are going to give away the store to get home for christmas and not have a government shutdown right before the christmas holiday. i'm trying toon, work out whether or not the last few days have been good for the president or bad for the president. tom started talking about the

tweets and the legal team and clearly there's a lot of noise around that issue. on the other hand, we have the tax win -- let's call it attacks win for the moment -- the tax win for the moment. on balance, has the president has a good few days or bad few days? >> it has been presidential whiplash going from positive news for the president with the tax bill, the first major legislative victory looking almost secure and then the really bad news with what is happening with his former national security adviser being indicted for lying to the fbi and becoming a cooperating witness. that's something you cannot expect that the president and his top advisers are happy about. they are having to deal with a little bit of emotional whiplash celebrating some victories and having concern that what is happening with the special counsel -- issuing subpoenas to to thee bank, talking

quickly towards that. theresa may, included. for the moment, all we are hearing is optimism, but it is a fair question to ask because we have had comments in the past that this issue is getting down to the nitty-gritty on how it will be resolved in terms of the irish border. that is a conversation that will move into 2018 and at the moment, certainly the republic of irish has been saying all they need is the parameters. what started all this was not the republic of ireland. they had an agreement before going into this lunch. it was that call with the dup and arlene foster that put an end to any possible breakthrough at the lunch yesterday. the u.k. was saying all along the lunch was not a deadline, just a staging post toward december 14. all is not lost yet, but theresa may has a lot to do in just a few days. guy: and the pound is certainly feeling the pressure. thank you very much indeed, nejra cehic, joining us from

6:24 am
from the context of a lot of this move is computers. s get going, it's hard to reverse it. historically, the more extended a market is, believe it or not, the stronger that market's forward returns are. the fact that the market is extended, that maybe a technical concern. it's not a longer-term one and as we move into 2018, there's no question this year is proper -- next year is probably harder than this year was. tom: here's a statement and goes to his hard work. if i double-click on this chart, jason, bring up this puppy again. we bring it up, there it is, up 20% and everybody remembers real estate in 2006. is this the real estate of 2017? we knew we were going to revert to the mean. are we going to revert to this mean on this great bull market? chris: i think you will get some type of a shakeout.

the last time we had such low 1996 and 2014. you get a pullback. the bull market isn't over, just tends to get difficult and i think that is a fair assumption into 2018. tom: are you worried about the short vix train and the people out here with this huge bet on continued quiet? chris: i am not. i think the vix is a poorly constructed project -- product. they have been making that bet for the better part of the last 18 months and it hasn't paid. what i think is important about volatility -- volatility tends to rise before the bull market is over. the markets get inherently more unstable before they end. we'll see a lot of evidence of that yet. tom: i look at this, chris verrone, and let's tease forward to where we are going in the last block of the show, the banks. you have them under loved by you

6:47 am
country and talk to clients, very few people own any. i'm a little bit reluctant to say at a bubble yet. it may have bubble characteristics, but i don't think it's so widely adopted and owned where there is big, meaningful near-term miss. tom: i'm doing this up for bloomberg tv because wall street loves this chart. we did this for chris verrone. here is log bitcoin. what you need to know is it's not a hyperinflation chart because it's hyperbolic -- it's a hyperbola on an arithmetic axis and not a log axis. it to your point, i have never seen convexity like that chart. it's original. chris: i think what the chart underscores is the world is still awash in money. there's a lot of liquidity sloshing around and it seeks out stuff like this. tom: is this excellent to two bulbs?bs -- tulip
6:48 am
chris: i don't know the answer to that yet. we could make the same case for bitcoin, but what i think is maybe different here is it is adoption away from wall street. the people who own this are not goldman sachs and jpmorgan, it's the common person on the street. that is what i think is interesting. guy: i want to get brian's take on this as well. in a world where tech companies have been effective in arbitraging tax -- i am stretching here, but i'm wondering if bitcoin is ultimately a global currency and you kind of wonder where tech companies go. they are domiciled in the united states for now, but arbitrage tax effectively around the world. is there something -- do you think there's a team at facebook trying to figure out how to harness bitcoin? brian: it's a good question, and
6:49 am
i don't know. the way in which bitcoin comes up is through the lens of block chain as a concept. i think it has potential and a lot of people are exploring it in terms of transparency and going back to why media agencies and advertising agencies are having a negative moment right now because marketers and donors don't understand exactly how agencies make money and i think block chain as a tool can be helpful. in terms of facebook or google notding taxes in some way, aware of that. i do think that's an example of the kind of regulatory risk they face. i think it's -- it has always been unrealistic they can keep their tax rate as low as it is. what is facebook, 10% taxes or something like that? not realistic for the long-term. tom: brian wieser, thank you so much. we continue with mr. verrone can look at the trends out there. tv , you need to be briefed in the morning. keep the volume up.
