deal that will allow the chinese to buy more products to the u.s.? the ball is in president trump's court. we have to see what the white house considers the path forward. vonnie: what could be the path forward? if there is an absolute bte deal, might that help? does that the one element of what china is looking for? jenny: it is definitely one of the biggest elements in the whole puzzle piece tchina is looking for. mated aese have precondition to come to the table in the first place to talk about any u.s. product that zte will get a pass. the deal has not been finalized. we don't know what the fine will be, what the details of a deal might be. but that definitely helps to move the ball forward. then we will see what they will and energyct products. then we will see what the u.s. will do on the tariffs that china says, do not impose them or what we are stuck. it seems like right now we are stuck.

canada, the g7 finance ministers meeting. that this was high on the agenda. some of yourffs on closest allies, of course, will draw critici. we saw from treasury secretary steven mnuchin that he told his counterparts, i am not your guy. don't come to me. you have to directly appealed to trump. you have to tell the president that you want something changed on the tariff situation. that is what we are looking at at the g7 leaders summit this weekend. the u.s. allies are heading back. we see kudlow getting in the debt -- getting in the defensive. always talk him out of the weekend, saying we are added to six plus one. the u.s. totally isolated. kudlow coming to the defense of the president and thing the president is responding to something he sees is unfair trade. tomorrowariffs go live on canada, mexico, and the european union. will we expect more statements from leaders? we have had so many from yours

replacement cycle of our apple devices, we are using our devices longer, and performance has suffered. but apple is saying is that now for certain tasks, we will see load times that are twice as fast, even better performance. instead of some dramatic software upgrades that we may be more used to seeing, they are focused on more incremental updates. so that they can get this performance back on top. will focussaid they on software and less on hardware. anything interesting that could catch our eyes as we head into this conference? emily: i think these ar developer tools are really interesting. reporter who tech covers apple has talked about how apple is planning to release a headset, and 's headset as early as 2020. what we are seeing is building the foundation for a potential big ar that form. we are expecting ar kit, a toolkit for developers working

months notice. trump has been given the notice, although he threatens to often. everyone is drawing a line on the sand on the five-year expiration. even if they didn't have that, trump after five years, or the u.s. president could if you wanted to. this is one of those red line issues. even if they got that, if they got agriculture, there are a bunch of other things. nafta asked to have lost the urgency we have seen in the last few weeks. we are just quickly, hearing talk about bilaterals. canada should negotiate only with the u.s.. mexico should negotiate only with the u.s.. do we think that will be the next leg that it will go to bilateral? that trumpe seen believes that bilateral deals are better than trilateral ones. at this point, this is a bilateral discussion. if things collapse, maybe we go down that route. and it has a bilateral treaty for it -- free trade agreement with the u.s. that was a nafta predecessor.

1:42 pm
when i spoke with the governor, that was the subject of conversation. here is stephen poloz in an exclusive interview. the question was all the influence the town was having on the meetings. stephen: there's no question over thee is a cloud conversation, given what has happened this week. very agenda oned which can be constructed. i would say the town was constructive. was theat extent described at the distraction of discussions around trade and tariffs taking away from some of tiermeteor issues -- mea issues he wanted to talk about? stephen: we talked about tray that was separate from all the other things. that was separate from all the other things. now we will move on and talk about other things. we know it is there, an issue for everybody. but it is an issue that really needs to be discussed in full
1:43 pm
detail at the leader summit. amanda: glenn central bankers come together, i know one of the things he were discussing is rate policies and uncertain times. obviously one of the uncertainties of trade issues, but there are many others in the world today. what does that mean exactly in a practical way? what are the uncertainties you are grappling with as a group? stephen: there is a whole range of uncertainties. mosthings that are topical, what is potential output, how much capacity do we have in our economies? how far can they grow before inflation actually becomes -- reasserts itself in a normal way? how high is our star? or how low? what is our star? those two assumptions alone, and their intersection, gives you all kind of scope for uncertainty and ranges around things you are looking at. i think we focused a lot on
1:44 pm
those things. the inputs we need to be more depend -- definitive about those things. comment, ifing there are any nonlinear things in your model, it means but even though you think of uncertainty as symmetric, it gives rise to a symmetric risk decision-making. intuition would become a downside risk feels the worst right now, given what we have been through. even risks are symmetric. you care more about the downside risk. that is because of the nonlinear xina model. amanda: has that informed policy? stephen: it means that since we don't know exactly where we are, it is a risk management decision. as we have discussed for canada, it means that you believe the skew is a positive one. that means that there is probably more room to grow before inflation pressures are actually evident. but you don't know that for sure. it is a risk management
1:45 pm
decision, not a definitive decision. it shades your judgment in that direction. amanda: are we changing, recalibrating, the amount of inflation we are willing to tolerate, even in the models than we did a few years ago? stephen: no, i don't think so. certainly we are not. over that is about two-year horizon, where will inflation be? our forecast says it will be as close as anything to 2%. our forecast also shows it could go 2.5%, or something like that between now and then. we say, that is ok because we believe it to be a transitory phenomenon. that we a taller thing can expand -- explain. not in a targeting sense. we would not target above 2%. but again, since it is two years from now, you don't rew what it will be. it is a question of what are the upside and downside risks, and
1:46 pm
if they are a symmetric i mentioned a moment ago. then you say, i can wait a little bit longer before i will see those inflation pressures showing up. relative to my model. amanda: it feels as though there is a tension between central banks and finance ministers, treasury, in terms of continuously stimulating growth and a willingness to take on debt to do that. and banks are now looking to normalize. how does that play out in your view? stephen: usually fiscal policy is something the central bank takes into account. it is not a big game where it is all coordinated. governments have a range of objectives that they are pursuing. once they lay out their fiscal plan, the bank can take that into account in relative to potential, this is where we will be, therefore this is what the rate path will look like. i have thought about this as a mixed question, rather than what the total demand is question for
1:47 pm
we all know that for the last number of years, interest rates have been extraordinarily low. period,that time fiscal policy had been more stimulative come at they could have been hired to what would be the outcome? but more public sector debt. either way, there would have been debt. it is not black and white. which is worse? it is about knowing and understanding the trade-offs and then judging and how we use it to bring those things into a common environment. of debtged period accumulation gives rise to a higher probability of a financial crisis, or what have you. which puts the economy at risk. we take those things and count them that way. amanda: that was stephen poloz. i also spoke with the secretary-general at the g7 meeting. he says president trump's
1:48 pm
tariffs may hurt the global recovery. >> it is a big concern. of course, we regret the fact thatthere were tariffs were applied starting in the first of june two in number of countries which are either negotiating or already have very old trade agreements withhe united states. it is also, in a moment, where there is a recovery in the world. we are growing close to 4%, which was increasing speed before the crisis. course, the potential of slowing down the recovery because it infringes on the level of confidence. it creates uncertainty. mayefore, some investments be deferred, some actual trade may be detoured.

2:06 pm
critics who say that the technology is too addictive and apple is responsible. you could also turn off your phone, but that might be too much to expect. but the is, i thought same time icing new features, like the one you are excited about, the me-moji, that allows you to create a personalized emoji that looks like you. they just demonstrated group face time, which is a technological feat. very difficult to do. all of those features will only make our phones more addictive, so at least for apple, investors liking what they are hearing. scarlet: so far, so good. apple was pushed by investors to do more when it comes to fighting the smartphone addiction. compare and contrast how apple is resolving this, or addressing this, to say how microsoft and apple that are doing this. addressing smartphone addiction, some people say, is less of a
2:07 pm
threat to apple than to the software companies. emily: interesting you mentioned out for that, because google did the same thing a few weeks ago at their own developers conference. they announced the monitoring tools, the notification, you know, the keeping, if you will -- atgate keeping, if you will. i also talked about the ceo of microsoft about facebook, and he talked about how trust is very important for them. the bottom line, it will come down to the users to make these decisions. at the same time the companies are announci new features, they are making their products better and better. apple announced better features around siri, a new shortcut that allows siri to can mitigate with any app. app. communite with any that is something users have been wanting. tools. new ar developer one thing tim cook has talked

2:12 pm
meeting, just because of how odds it is feeling against washington. some threatening to with the draw from the deals and they had made preliminary with united states on the issue of trade. meanwhile, the europeans are thinking of formulating and cohesive unit to respond to what the president has decided to do with proposing to increase tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. that has been objected to by germany and the u.k. and canada, i want to pull up a tweet on what president trump said about nafta, because this is very interesting. "farmers have not been doing well for 15 years. mexico, canada and others have treated them unfairly. by the time i finish trade talks, that will change. they trade barriers will finally be broken, nafta trade deficits
2:13 pm
no longer." the president has faced pushback, not just around the world, but from those very farmers he is tweeting about. many of them are republicans, they are in flyover country as it is called, who helped elect him and are concerned about what he is doing, because of the chinese response with soybeans. julia: is the president listening? to what extent, as you point out, the critical vote are based in the farming state and if we see retaliation, that ultimately will hurt these people. is the president phased? fourth is this all part of the rhetoric, part of the rgaining process going on and nobody is really paying that much attention to the tweets? kevin: great point. most analysts are not paying attention except when he tweets about north korea, but i talked to a source about the administration, and what that
2:14 pm
source said was, take a look at the tweets. the president talking about the farmers, many of whom have sent letters to wilbur ross. and hillary kudlow, a senior economic adviser, to reconsider what they are doing on the issue of agriculture. but on the second side of that, we should also note the president campaigned about ripping up nafta, and negotiating a bilateral trade deal. the ministers and says to those republicans, do not blame president trump, blame china, blame mexico, blame canada. take a listen to what lyric of those said. -- larry kudlow said. >> do not blame trump. blame europe, blame china, blame nafta. kevin: trying to be on the offense, kudlow. and when you talk to folks at the white house, they say they are walking things in real-time. take a step back and be patient
2:15 pm
as these things continue to develop. scarlet: i want to ask again about the president arriving at the summit. we were saying how fascinating it would be to be at the event, it would be so interesting to read body language there. there will be accompanying the president and when will they arrive? steve mnuchin seems to be somebody that our allies see as a partner in promoting free trade, yet there was a report over the weekend that indicated he is under pressure and feeling the heat from both sides within the administration from the hardliners. kevin: i spoke with sources close to peter navarro, more like steve bannon from the public worldview, and they say he is at odds with the steve mnuchin, who has abdicated for more free trade, and along with whoow who has advocated, would describe himself as a free trader. you have that tensioin the president's administration, but he likes the attention, in the
2:16 pm
sense -- tension, in the sense that he likes that type of movement. he is expected to arri second half of this week, before he goes to singapore ahead of the summit with kim jong-un. and he will likely be surrounded by his senior team of economic leaders, people like wilbur ross, as well as peter navarro. the treasury secretary still playing the key central role, the key point person in terms of the direct conversations, especially with the chinese, chinese would anticipate the the highest ranking official be the point person on this come as my sources tell me, and that person is secretary steven mnuchin. julia: you get a sense that not just china, but the nafta countries, who to deal with and who is working toward some formal deal. i want to talk about another tweet today, talking about the prospect of the president being able to pardon himself, although
2:17 pm
he has done nothing wrong?at if laughing.stop what do we make of this? [laughter] kevin: t administration is going on offense by raising the issue of pardons. that is what every conservative folk -- person is doing. they feel like this has gone on long enough and the trump movement, the voters are really behind the president in this thinking. democratt, and there is a group of independent voters, many republican as well, who are at odds over this. over the weekend it was reported a memo that which the legal team of the president advised him he would be able to pardon anybody, because he has final jurisdiction over all the investigations, including robert mueller's. that case could go all the way to the spain court. i do not want to get too far ahead of ourselves, because as
2:18 pm
he rightfully mentioned, we do not know when the investigation will wrap up, nor do we know what he will find it what it will mean for the midterms, and for our audience that is the question, because should immobilize democrats or republicans to get to the polls, the policy implications come november, and what kind of framework could get done next year. julia: and a comment from rudy giuliani saying, the president probably does have the legal power to pardon himself, but it would probably lead to immediate impeachment. i am shaking my head. kevin cirilli. thank you.

content that people love so much that they will pay for it before they pay for dinner. the pga tour, we do not think that there is a more compelling sp franchise, global sports franchise in the world. 50% of the pga tour players are from international venues. we are in business in every one of those countries. it is a passionate group of people and together we see this vision of offering a global pga tour golf ecosystem. not just 43 weeks a year of contents, and all of the tour and players, it is an echo system for golf. >> you acquired the olympics rights, the bundesliga, and beyond. so it is win-win in terms of global reach, but i am wondering what it means about the increasing value of sports rights. when the deals with nbc and all of those come up again in two

2:33 pm
trade to the top of the longer-term channel, and a pullback to this blue channel. from here, if the dollar does pull back and go lower, i expect this to raise higher and go toward 77. here,el, right around which could act is resistance. abigail: relative to the longer-term chart i showed, which suggestcould see the australian reach $.80 or so, which is out of the timeframe you are thinking about, but that would mean this channel would make an upward move. joe:would. what you could do is enter right now and put a stock below this blue one, or wait until it breaks out, buy on the breakout and then go look -- then go below the white channel. 7650 forlooking around a possible stop. thank you for joining us.

you know, she settled which is kind of a win in these situations. scarlet: one thing she said that she had a hard time grappling with, was she felt like her battle did not change anything, but you offer some perspective in your podcast. has anything changed? rebecca: i think the biggest thing that changed is happening now, the me too movement. we talk about sexual harassment a little bit in the show, but i think it is helping people realize the gender dynamics in the workplace and how they are, and how men and women in -- really heart women -- hurt women's careers. some of the women that we hear from our also sexually harassed, and suing for pay hand i hand and opens upes go people's eyes to the reality of the workplace. sadly, i do not know that much has changed, up until now.
2:53 pm
scarlet: what did you set out to do with the podcast? did it from run the me too movement? rebecca: i think what we wanted to do was everybody hears the number of 20%, women make 20% less than men, but we wanted to show the human side so we spoke with women, and myself, who experienced it personally, but we wanted people to know the history of why it happened. behindn some of the math it, so people could walk away learning something. i think if you learned one thing from the show, that is really getting our goal, because it might help solve this. scarlet: there is a common nation people give, including companies and women themselves, that women make choices about family, career, and the results in jobs that do not pay as well. it is individual choices rather than institutional framework imposed upon them, unpack those arguments. rebecca: listening to the show,
2:54 pm
you can kind of see how the forces are greater. the historical reason for why thes that women are choosing payless are because of sexism and ideas that pee about women, in how women were not allowed to do a lot of these jobs until the 1960's. there were laws. and they would end up in lower paying jobs and they are still the jobs we are doing. the reality of the way that we see men and women at work forces women into making these quote "choices."ices -- we expect women to dial back the hours at work for family. scarlet: has any company done anything about it? rebecca: we spoke to one company, virgin money, therted o 33%. the ceo claims, we are try to make it less of a taboo for men
2:55 pm
to take the lower paying jobs in customer service, for example. but she said even getting down the three percentage points was hard. scarlet: 33% is stilmassive. side inut on the public the united states? is there any kind of initiative at the state level that is bearing fruit? rebecca: the biggest thing happening in the u.s. on the public side would be a lot of cities, and some states, have started banning asking salary history questions when hiring new employees. so when women come to work at other companies, if they are underpaid at a previous job, and you have to tell your salary you will be underpaid at your next job, so a lot of those places or employers are not liking this and they are getting pushed back, so it is becoming a nationwide experiment. scarlet: that was my conversation with rebecca greenfield. you can download the podcast
2:56 pm
from itunes or wherever you get your podcasts. i thought it was interesting the u.k. shedding light on the gender gap. it is a nationwide experiment that forces big companies to expose with the pay gap is, but it does not enforce them to do anything. julia: the hope is shaming them forces action. australia and germany are doing it. scarlet: let the outrage takeover. julia: they said of nothing gets done, and it could take a century to get anything done on the cap -- gap. scarlet: a century, that is frightening. apple shares off of their highs as the annual conference wra up in san jose. we will go there live, next. ♪

3:09 pm
people are holding the device and apples simply has to respond here? >> i think that is true and i found it interesting that that is the way they started, the whole section on ios was to say, we will enhance the capability of the phones people had for a long time. they do recognize people are holding onto these devices. to bes an effort by apple realistic and say, people will hold onto these so we want to make them better. factorort of a feel-good . it basically says, no, you do not have to get the latest phone to get our latest enhancements. good thing for apple overall as well, presenting an overall good picture, that these are our ideals and values. we value all of our customers and older devices. it is an important device for them. >> we will see what that actually holds out. let's move on to facebook we mentioned it earlier but there

10 years back, microsoft was anti-open-source. they changed things around and are aggressively adopting it. microsoft is also leveraging the connection between developer tools and the developer community. that is why i think i bought this and philosophically, this allows might soft to be in an interesting position in terms of being a place that developers continually rely on even if they have walked away from microsoft. race questions about google and other platform divided debt providers and i am sure we will see those shakeout but it is an important move long-term for the way microsoft thinks about software development moving ahead. >> thank you. great to chat with you. we will hear from our interview with microsoft ceo -- how he plans to scale up the business p we will get all the
