4:04 am
francine: let's get more on the story, the historic summit in singapore. and kim jong-un have arrived, i had of tomorrow's one-on-one meeting. president trump has said he will know immediately whether the summit will be a success. >> how long will it take? the first within minute, i will know very quickly whether or not something good is going to happen. i also think i will know whether it will happen fast. francine: let's get your bloomberg team of reporters in singapore. ,e're joined by stephen engle near where the summit will take place as well as kevin cirilli, our own washington correspondent, headed to a fing by secretary mike pompeo shortly. stephen, when it comes to the success, who has more to gain?
4:05 am
definitely, i would say the koreans and also donald trump has a lot to gain and lose. i could not imagine i would be sitting here at the eve of the summit and saying that the united states president is having more trouble with kim then with north korea, on the verge of having a rapprochement with the north koreans and getting a framework for a peace deal with the north koreans. that is extraordinary as we stand here in front of the hotel on the hill behind me on sentosa island where that will take place tomorrow morning. all the focus will be at 9:00 in the morning, donald trump will know in the first minute or two what the attitude will be and kimher he can size up jong-un's intention to denuclearize.
4:06 am
wantnited states, they complete verifiable irreversible disarmament of north korea's nuclear capabilities. to north koreans do not want give up something they have worked hard to achieve. states tothe united pledge a reduction in the nuclear umbrella over its allies in east asia. there is so much to hammer out and we do not have indication of what the potential deliverables will be, other than this morning, the u.s. team met with the advance north korean team. they talked for about two hours to hammer out the last minute deals. both sides came out looking glum and said nothing. francine: kevin, you know the president. there a correlation without the g7 went and his relationship with the allies are at a record
4:07 am
low and the president needs the summit to go well? >> it is a great question. who wasto an advisor ,appy with president trump following his behavior at the g7. is thats came down to prime minister trudeau thought that because of the north korea summit, he would have an opening and president trump did not like that. tosident trump had intended sign that communique but went against it following prime minister trudeau's press conference. the white house press corps is staying, we are expecting senior administration officials to brief reporters ahead of the meeting between
4:08 am
president trump and kim jong-un. following this meeting, secretary pompeo is scheduled to tour asia, to continue to meet with u.s. allies about the follow-up from the meeting, japan, china, and other nations, including south korea. francine: stephen, let me come back to you. the north korean press talking about the summit. does this point to the fact that the north korean leader has an intent of making this work? >> i think he does have the intention to make this work. he sees the potential of the economy. he has seen what the south korean economy has done and the miracle of the chinese economy. wasnorth korean economy stronger than the chinese economy. he sees that potential. a key indicator was last week, when kim jong-un dismissed three of his key generals, the hawks
4:09 am
in the military. perhaps that is an indication he is trying to soften and meeting with donald trump tomorrow, we do not know what his goal will be to get from the americans. his agenda today is not known. we have not seen him since he met with the prime minister of singapore yesterday. he was all smiles. he is said to be hunkered down today, preparing for the summit tomorrow. singapore is picking up the hotel tap. we're lookingn, at a bloomberg chart, looking at how much does it play into his base? does his rating get boosted because he had a fight with g7 and does it get boosted if he does a deal with the koreas? with the issue of trade, the
4:10 am
base of the party is with president trump terms of withdrawing from nafta. that is why that aggressive rhetoric you are seeing from president trump. even he said the remarks in which he said it might be good for him should the u.s. withdraw from nafta but it would not be good for mexico or canada. in terms of how north korea plays into his ratings, i asked that question to a better and strategist -- a veteran strategist. he told me president trump likes to see it in the negotiation stages. people like marco rubio and bob ofker, who are critical president trump heading into this meeting, they are adamant he secure a long-term, denuclearization deal as opposed to something for purely political theatric reasons and something that would be
4:11 am
short-term. long-termoking for a commitment from kim jong-un, something that secretary pompeo guaranteed the u.s. would receive when secretary pompeo met with the north korean leader several weeks ago. francine: thanks. kevin cirilli and stephen engle. let's keep the conversation on the summit, joining us is wolfgang piccolo. he is copresident at teneo intelligence. what does china and russia have to do with all of this? not a complacency, but has china given its blessing? >> i think china is trying to be all for. -- alpha. the favored status for china is status quo. russia, there is a
4:12 am
feeling they are on the back foot. here is anything happening out of this meeting, we will see a flurry of diplomatic activity involving other countries in the region, after this one, assuming progress. francine: what are the chances of this succeeding? >> it depends what you define as success. francine: how do you define the -- define it? >> very low. it is good for show but the reality is the negotiations takes months to prepare and we do not have months. we should expect something about the peace process, how we can get to a peace deal between north korea and the u.s. the korean war potentially and an indication of what is next, what is the sequencing? that would be the best case
4:13 am
scenario, we do not know what is on the menu. are we talking about conventional weapons, human rights? how ambitious do they want to be? what is the verification system they put in place? francine: you could argue both leaders want a quick win. >> there is no quick win that can be a game changer. the quick win is, let's agree to talk more. francine: is that the only thing they are looking for or are they looking for something more sustainable? >> the quick win could be, and easing of sanctions. time, a could be talks about diplomatic recognition of the regime, while you keep the nuclear safeguard. from trump's point of view, it is about him showing he can meet
4:14 am
kim and talk to him and keep these ongoing. will the u.s. have to forgo some of the basis they have in the region? >> so much has been said. loss of regional allies here, south korea, japan, which are nervous about this. deal, the concern --t we have is that we will the moment you feel the u.s. some bella is becoming thinner because the u.s. wants to strike u.s. umbrella is becoming fan of because the u.s. wants to strike a deal. francine: coming up, we will talk about trump's deepening spat with canada and the chances of trade war. that is coming up next.

4:16 am
4:17 am
francine: this is bloomberg surveillance. i'm francine lacqua in london. let's get to the other big story moving the markets. at they g7, president trump broadsided allies by disavowing -- a statement they
4:18 am
previously agreed to. he lashed out at justin trudeau. the us officials kept up the war of words with u.s. -- with canada. there is a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad diplomacy with president trump and then tries to stab him in the back on his way out the door. that is what bad faith justin trudeau did with that stunt press conference. >> he did a disservice to the whole g7. >> trudeau did? >> yes. they were united. they came together. francine: what does the possibility of a trade war mean for global markets? wolfgang piccolo is still with us and we're joined by calentin marinov, credit agricole and
4:19 am
thushka maharaj, j.p. morgan chase. we are not seeing this anxious this played out on the markets -- wire markets ignoring it? we have lots of data. we have the fed on wednesday, the ecb on thursday. the market is overwhelmed. if we are going to see any reaction, that will be after we have seen the event risk laying out. -- playing out. given the competition between trump and the g7 escalating, that is followed by further tightening, be at the fed or the ecb, or that may play out as negative for risk correlated. overall currencies are relying on demand for the g7 for their growth. thecine: if you look at
4:20 am
main fault lines, you've presidential standoffs, central bank meetings, what do you think will influence markets? >> i think the fed, the central banks. what we have had is a stance toward getting toward policy. i think that is the key focus for risk sentiment. add some uncertainty. fed, the factthe they will be hiking in the face of this volatility is a key focus. francine: what are you expecting from the fed? a lot of it is priced in. will jay powell have to dance around these trade war issues? , what does acus is symmetric mean in terms of inflation target? the fed talks about having
4:21 am
inflation higher than the target. the second is, what happens when they get to neutral? , they've talked about 50 basis points in real terms. , it will be to that key to understand what the fed wants to do after that. do they want to pause, do they want to continue tightening based on fundamentals? how do they interpret the balance of frisk -- balance of risk? onhas not been very focused that third factor, it has been focused on getting to neutral. francine: speaking of that, my's bring you over to favorite chart, this tracks the risk appetite for the year. under expecting or are we
4:22 am
too complacent about a trade war? the words were nothing like i have ever heard from a g7. >> it was bad. it was a bad end to a sort of apprentice show. you cannot run a international negotiation like that. if you look at the statement, it was agreed. there was nothing meaningful. area when, the only you look at the text, was there a clear divide was about climate change. nobody was expecting anything meaningful. are we heading towards a trade war? no. america is becoming more isolated. point of view,an they came back with a idea that it is impossible to persuade
4:23 am
trump. they should focus more europe. francine: let's bring up the picture that was the picture of the weekend, when you see angela merkel with her fist on the table. a couple of the world leaders are thinking, i'm not sure what is going on. is that how the markets are interpreting it? does it mean we have peaked for world growth? the u.s. may be marginalized but they're still the biggest economy in the world and without the u.s., it is difficult to get anything on the table. a, for theoming from first time, we have an environment where global trade growth exceeded growth. they delivered efforts by the u.s. to change the overall international order, the rules-based international order, could contribute to a slowdown
4:24 am
contribute to the headwinds for global growth. that is not reflected in business sentiment yet. it is not reflected in hard data. the thing that is going to pave the way, create an environment which is less positive for risk assets, that risk appetite chart you showed was surprising, given the potentially negative outlook. things are not looking great, coming from this high point we have in terms of global growth. cautious and less constructive outlook for especially vacancies --t will be most exposed especially the currency's bill be most exposed to a global growth slowdown. few cornntified a seeds, the canadian dollar, the australian dollar, the new zealand dollar. if china is forced to absorb
4:25 am
more of u.s. exports and there will be a lot of import substitution between that and australia for example, is already exporting to china. francine: are there more risks to the upside? picture, weof our agree there is a shift in terms of moving away from strong momentum towards moderation. we're not of the view we're going to see a contraction over the next 12 to 18 months. it is slowing of the momentum rather than the overall growth. we expect u.s. growth to be above trend. stabilization outside of the u.s.. isthe near term, there uncertainty that needs to be built into risk assets. to 18 month horizon, we are pro-risk, pro-stocks
4:26 am
relative to bonds. our main exposure is in u.s. equities. we have a positive view on emerging markets. the headwinds are there. a specialwe will have block on emerging markets and we will look at the turkish lira. thank you all for joining us, wolfgang piccolo, calentin marinov, thushka maharaj, allstate with us. bitcoin takes other cryptocurrencies down with us. it is the start of a busy week. this is bloomberg.

dollar value of the tokens affected and the details of how the hack occurred. there is still a lot to come from coinrail that we do not know. of thee: is this one reasons that cryptocurrencies are slumping? >> yes. reasons why it was surprising is because the exchange is not that large. it was onee hacking, of the 100 largest exchanges in the world by volume. with the move of bitcoin, a large move, we saw more than $40 billion wiped out in value across cryptocurrencies. other factors are ongoing security concerns. we have got those investigations in the u.s. and china, there is talk of china cracking down on companies.

4:48 am
on getting to neutral. the fed is the fact hiking in the face of global uncertainty is negative for risk assets. there is a continued curve flattening in the u.s. make sense. how this affects the u.s. market, the length of the cycle is the determinant of where risks go. yields can rise modestly but not significantly. this concern we're seeing outside the u.s. francine: what about you? >> the risk for treasury yields are higher for here. the steepening of the curve remains to be seen. used bypening will be the fed to pack in as many rate hikes is possible before we see a flattening of the curve. in the u.s. in particular, where
4:49 am
as we may be heading towards a slow down which may be a year or a year and a half away from here, before that, the fed wants to be in a position to it dress slow down. -- to address look them. they can cut if needed. down theing meetings road could be seen as the fed trying to engineer a steepening of the curve, potentially by deliberately communicating they may be falling behind the curve by allowing that inflation risk to be priced in so that the fed will try to use that to hike further beyond what is priced in in the dotplot at the moment. francine: today, the most read story on the terminal is that italian bonds are surging, the euro is rallying after the
4:50 am
made assurances that they would stick to the currency. is that all they needed? discuss itdid not and the markets think it is a party? >> we have to take is good news the fact that italy's economy is not planning a exit. let's remember, this is a , a second-tier professor, we do not know anything about him until he was appointed. he has no political capital. we have seen some of the key guys in charge of the economy suggesting that the exit is on the table but all of the other things mentioned yesterday, we have to have a discussion. enjoy the rally. francine: how long will the rally last? to the 10 yearu
4:51 am
yield. >> i would say the political and premium is persistent the fact that the ecb is normalizing policy in the wake of this, is another reason why that premium should exist. in terms of comparing italy to spain, i would take the side of in terms of being more positive on their bond markets. in terms of our position, we are more neutral on italian bonds. i can see reasons to be positive on spain. the point about the euro membership, the fact it is a positive for italian bonds is a sign of where we are. italye ecb, i do not see on its own, derailing the ecb from normalization. -- we need toseat
4:52 am
see more contagion. francine: do you agree or do they pursue normalizing? what hasb will welcome been happening at the start of this week. they have been rallying since early today. represent easing of the financial conditions in the eurozone and this is the best environment for the ecb to consider normalizing or removing that support for the economy that has been in support. policy normalization is one of the key ingredients of our bull ish euro feel. because of the g7, the
4:53 am
dollar is no longer higher. india leading most currencies higher. think that more recently, what we're starting to experience is investors are realizing that u.s. per section is him could have important negative implications -- u.s. protectionism could have important negative implications for global growth. mentioned the canadian dollar, the australian dollar in the g10 space. you can expand that to the em. all currencies are likely to areer if emerging-market likely to continue further depreciation of currencies. francine: what is your take on emerging markets? >> we have a more positive view on em, in the equity space than
4:54 am
in debt. it is based on stronger fundamentals than we had. need to be targeted in our exposure rather than having a general positive view. >> agree on that. what we are looking at is political capacity to deal with more pressure because of the stronger dollar. there is not much political capacity across the board. francine: thank you all for joining us today, wolfgang piccolo, teneo intelligence, calentin marinov, and thushka maharaj. we're just looking at some pictures, this is what the markets are doing, european stocks rising. investors bracing themselves for one of the busiest weeks of the year. we're expecting a live news conference from the u.s. secretary of state, mike pompeo, holding a briefing ahead of this historic summit between

5:06 am
or not something good is going to happen. i also think i will know whether or not it will happen fast. toncine: let's get back bloomberg anchor haslinda amin in singapore. the question tom and i have is what is a success? is it different for the u.s. that it is for the north koreans? haslinda: it depends. if you speak to president trump he has already tapered his expectations. initially he was looking for irreversible dismantling of nuclear weapons in north korea. then he said perhaps it is the end of the korean war. just recently he said perhaps this is just the beginning of a friendship between him and kim jong-un. if that works i happen, it is a success in itself.
5:07 am
it depends who you are speaking to. hastrump, the end goal deferred over the last few weeks. south korea once a roadmap. it wantstion that a dismantling will happen. maybe it will take more than one meeting, but it wants some kind of indication. it will happen sooner rather than later. francine: you've hit the nail on the head. it is all about sequencing. how do we deal is verification, even if there is agreement on both sides to denuclearize? how do you check to see if it is being done? haslinda: precisely. is, irreversible dismantling of nuclear capabilities, there is no euro versus billy here because north korea already has the knowledge if it dismantles its nuclear
5:08 am
capabilities it still has the knowledge to work on it should discussions fall apart. there is no justification, there is no finality. north korea is not able to do it all ov again. trusted, evena be if it -- even if international observers are allowed in its facilities. jong-un's father 18 years ago, they came close to dismantling but things fell apart, and now we have a north korea capable of firing that nuclear missile. jong-un is at the saint regis, trump is at the shangri-la, but the chinese are nowhere. how are the chinese looking at the summit? haslinda: you can call it the invisible hand.
5:09 am
,ithout the chinese support without the chinese prodding the sides together, the summit would not have happened. there is vested interest when it comes to the chinese. a lot is at stake. the chinese want success because u.s. toese want the remove its military might. the chinese want to impose its own military might in this part of the world, in all of asia. we are beginning to see that in the south china sea. with the u.s. presence in this part of the world, that is not going to happen anytime soon. it is in the chinese interest that the.s. and north korea have successful talks tomorrow. francine: thank you. joining us now is bluebay asset andgement head of strategy

luigi, my tweet of the weekend was from the university of michigan. economist.e young he put up from the world bank the average tariffs rate charged byons. canada is at the bottom japan and short. everyone else is on equal terrain. paul krugman said the same thing this weekend. the fact is the tariffs of the g7 are not all that high, are they? luigi: they are not. -- goingt of the week back to trade -- tom: i did that for you. g-sevenrade within the is by and large free. it is true that germany has a gigantic trade surplus and has

kept it for many years. the only time after world war ii they did not have it was during the reunification phase. a tradewant to keep surplus, this is not feasible long-term. a trade surplus, this is not feasible long-term. i think trump is trying to go after this fact, which is a problem for the west. it is a problem in europe. i think his goal is probably right, his methods are completely wrong. luigi, fallout at g7. could there be a fallout in terms of global trade? not long ago we were talking about firing on all cylinders. luigi: i think there is a risk in a global trade war. this risk is exacerbated by the tweet.

we know the auto industry is extremely politically powerful in germany. all of the regulation in europe is driven by the car industry in germany. itive to that industry andy would put up a real fight that might split not only the g7, but europe itself. i think there is a serious danger of the situation escalating. francine: we will get more on this possible split in europe. david riley and luigi zingales will be staying with us. hour, an the next economist and the author of "edge of chaos." we will talk about that and populism and brexit. at 6:30 in new york and 11:30 in london. this is bloomberg. ♪

pressure are cementing the rise of an asian security block. xius paying and vladimir -- and vladimir putin -- the president of china criticized new forms of unilateralism and protectionism. in switzerland, voters overwhelmingly rejected a proposal to radically change the way banks lend money. the measure would have prevented commercial banks from lending more money than they would have had in deposits. central bank is the only source of new money. the swiss national bank president cause to date -- called it a dangerous experiment. global news 24 hours a day, on air and @tictoc on twitter, powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in over 120 countries. riggs.ylor this is bloomberg. one of our most read stories, italian bonds and stocks surge after the country's new finance minister made
5:32 am
assurance they were committed to a single currency. said there was no discussion of any proposal to leave the euro. the government is determined to block market conditions that would push toward an exit. david riley and luigi zingales are both still with us. luigi was also one of the names of a possible finance ministry. if you had been finance minister, i note it is a difficult thing to express yourself on, do you think this government will hold together? there is a function in the market, given the rally we saw today, that everything is fine. we have a finance minister that is not anti-euro, and so the government holds. very: italy is in a special situation given the level of debt. that italyy thinks is doing fine, rates would be
5:33 am
lower and italy would be fine. if everyone thinks italy would not be fine, rates will behind and italy will end up defaulting . i think it is a structural weakness of the euro, when it was designed there was no mechanism in place to protect against this risk. own naturale your central bank, the central bank plays a role. without the central bank, you are at risk. when the euro was designed, economies do not think about this problem. i'm very glad the finance minister reassure the market. i think living under that threat is dangerous because any possible situation will create economic damage. even -- the cost in terms of interest rates is not going to be gigantic. the good nose is -- the good
5:34 am
news is we are coming off bonds issued in 2013 with high rates. i think the immediate cost of a rising interest rate would not be dramatic. however, the cost of bonds for weks and the ability -- could be back in a situation like 2011 where italy suffered gigantic economic cost for some political uncertainty at the european level. when angela merkel started to talk about the possibility of a , thent in every country the spread started to rise and italy entered a crisis. a big burdenis that any government in italy is facing. david, if i have my chart somewhere, there is my italian premium against spain. .ou own btp's
5:35 am
what is the case for being constructive on italian btp's? they are still pricing in some level of systemic risk. what the finance minister's comments confirmed and we have ,een by the five-star movement not to call another election which would have been a referendum, highlights the fact that neither the public nor political will for a euro exit. there is too much systemic risk being priced in at the moment. i think the other aspects of the italian government is they are not going to go on a mad physical splurge. there is a little bit of room for fiscal easing. i think you will see further tightening in btp's. we have repriced our high-level and that is going to stay the case. tom: luigi, what does italy need
5:36 am
from mario draghi? ?hat does italy need clearly a continuation of quantitative easing will help. what italy needs is some willingness of the eurozone to reform its self. this is what the italian people are demanding and the government is asking and this is where these -- where there is very little flexibility on the german side. over the weekend we got a couple of interviews that would seek to be more open-minded. if you read the articles, there is no openness whatsoever. there is no idea that there could be a fiscal union of any form whatsoever. with the presumption that germany is paying for everybody. germany is not paying a dime for italy so far. this idea that is common in
5:37 am
german newspapers that italians are beggars and do not say thank you for the money they receive is completely fake. clear thee has to market, maybe portugal has to clear the market. is italy in a position where they have to do a debt restructuring and clear the market? luigi: no. i think if growth continues as it is, i think italy can sustain the current level of debt. what i was saying earlier is we are on a the knife edge situation. it is easy when you are on the knife edge to fall on the wrong side. it is a tricky situation to be in. the only certainty in italy is volatility. concerns will remain in the weeks and months to,.
5:38 am
how do you play italy, when does it get to be attractive? i think btp's were attractive on a spread basis several days ago. as we approach the 200 level, then the risk/reward becomes less attractive. i think the key focus going forward is going to be around the budget. september/october. if as implied by the comments by the finance minister and other members of the new government, they will not be irresponsible in terms of their fiscal plan and i think they do have some room for maneuver on the fiscal side, they are running a budget gdp.it of 1.5% of as luigi said, growth continues to hold up. i think that could lead to
5:39 am
another lowering of those spreads. i think in the run-up to that we will have a reasonable amount of volatility. juneve the eu summit in which will maybe or maybe not up on some of the reform issues. francine: i was other -- i wonder whether you think the markets are disingenuous to do with immigration, and if there was something to go wrong with europe it would be because of immigration rather than something ugly going on at the finance ministry? two legsthink they are of the same problem. italy feels left behind in the immigration problem and the economic problem. europe does not exist on immigration. the most shocking thing over the weekend, have you heard any european leader make important statement about immigration? here we have one of the most important crisis is in many years and europe is missing in action.
5:40 am
if you want to have a real move forward, if you want to spirit,e a european europe needs to be present in the face of a national crisis. i think the fact that we have a system where we do not have mechanisms for intervention for military or immigration crisis and financial crisis is clearly something that is not going to last in the current form. francine: thank you so much. luigi zingales. david riley, thank you for joining us. we are also waiting for mike pompeo to hold a news briefing ahead of the meeting between donald trump and the north korean leader kim jong-il and. we will look -- kim jong-un. we will look at that and look at your markets. this is bloomberg. ♪

now. they are moving quite rapidly and we anticipate they will come to their logical conclusion more quickly than we had anticipated. i want to address a report in the new york times that suggested the u.s. team lacks the expertise on dismantling the weapons program. i want to address that report directly. for over three months, a group of over a hundred experts across spent multiple times a week to address technical issues associated with dismantling north korea's weapons programs. experts from the military, the department of energy, including phd's and experts, and officials from the intelligence committee covering north korea. coversame experts also north korea's nuclear and biological and missile programs. these experts include dozens of

phd's who have expertise in nuclear weapons and biological weapons. iny have advanced degrees nuclear engineering, chemistry, and biology, and other relevant fields. on the ground in singapore, we have a team that includes the senior st experts in weapons of mass destruction can cover any technical needs the meetings may present. any suggestion the united states lacks the technical expertise across government or on the ground in singapore is mistaken. north korea has previously confirmed to us its willingness two deuclear rise -- nuclearize and we are eager to see if those words prove sincere. president trump believes kim jong-un has an unprecedented opportunity to change the check three of our relationship and
5:46 am
bring peace and prosperity to his country. summit willul the set the conditions for future productive talks. in light of how many flimsy agreements the united states has made in previous years, this president will ensure that no potential agreement will fail to adequately address the north korean threat. we seekmate objective from diplomacy with north korea has not changed. the complete and verifiable and europe versus old d nuclear station of the korean peninsula is the only outcome the uned states will accept. sanctions will remain until north korea eliminates its weapons of mass destruction programs. if diplomacy does not move in the right direction, those measures will increase. president trump recognizes chairman kim's desire for prepared to is ensure that a north korea free
5:47 am
of weapons of mass destruction is also a secure north korea. the president has also expressed his openness to expanding access to foreign investment and other economic opportunities for north korea if they take the right steps. all of the preparations for the summit have come together nicely. the president met this afternoon with the minister of singapore. was an important opportunity to thank the prime minister of singapore for his partnership in helping to make this summit a reality. singapore is home to over 4000 american companies and is a long-standing commercial partner. we thank them for their help in making the summit what it is. the president also had a chance to visit with our embassy team in singapore and thank them for their work to make the summit a success. for example, at tomorrow's summit there will be five -- there will be 5000 members of the media from all over the world covering this historic event. going intorump is

this meeting with confidence and eagerness for real progress. it clear that if kim arizes there's a brighter future for north korea. tomorrow we will get our indication if kim jong-un shares this vision. i'm happy to take a couple questions. >> [inaudible] reflects in part -- is that a shift in your position? >> there is no shift in the
5:49 am
policy. it is the case we are prepared necessary fornces the north koreans to engage in denuclearization. we are prepared to take action that will provide them sufficient certainty that they can be comfortable that denuclearization is not something that ends badly for them. just the opposite, that leads to a brighter, better future. point, with on that the umbrella of security assurances involve removing u.s. forces from south korea? sec. pomeo: i will not get into any of the details. i can only say this. we are prepared to take what will be security assurances that will be unique from what america has been willing to provide previously.
5:50 am
we think this is necessary and appropriate. >> wouldn't be erroneous to assume that is not in the table? sec. pompeo: you should not assume that because of the details i give that any question has merit. isi refuse to tell you what in it, you should refuse i am simply refusing to tell you what is in it and not draw any conclusions. there is going to be a lot of work left to do. there is a lot of detail to be provided. we will not conduct these negotiations in the open with the media. we will conduct them between the two parties so we have an opportunity for real success. >> we hear what the u.s. expects from the north.
5:51 am
[indiscernible] sec. pompeo: i think the first part of your question is the same question major garrett asked. what one side or the other may be prepared to do. i'm not going to speak to that. with respect to the second question, the context for these discussions is radically different than ever before. the backdrop against which these negotiations are taking way that isump is a
5:52 am
fundamentally different than before. the president has made it clear that until we get the outcome we are demanding, economic relief is not going to be provided. that is different. there was always a have pop assist that at some point the americans would take their foot off and allow the economic opportunities for the north and reduce the capacity to achieve the deal. we are not going to do that. these discussions that will take place tomorrow between chairman kim and preside trump will set the framework for the hard work that will follow. we will see how far we get, but i am optimistic we will have a successful outcome from tomorrow's meeting. it is the case in each of those countries, there are only two people that can make decisions of these magnitude and those people are going to be sitting in the room together tomorrow. secretary, the president said he will know within a minute whether kim jong-un is serious.
5:53 am
these are incredibly complicated issues that have tens of millions of civilians in the crosshairs. it is wise -- is it wise for the president to be going on his gut and have you established any conditions for the will -- for him to walk out tomorrow? sec. pompeo: i've made sure he has a chance to hear many different voices, all of the opportunities and risks and we have put these two leaders in the right place. as i said in answer to the previous question, president trump has laid out a process that is fundamentally different from the ones we have gone through before. i expect the process from tomorrow forward will also be , withentally different america working to try to provide an outcome that benefits both countries. that is different than what we have done before.

6:04 am
ational gdp how much stronger is china getting and how much weaker is the united states getting? carl: that is a question for arithmetic. if china is growing at 7% in the at 2%, maybe 3.5%, they are growing twice as fast. as they are starting off with gdp on the basis of purchasing power and of converting power -- ofrent gdp and the weight gdp. china's economy is probably another percentage point greater than the u.s. as a share of world gdp. the gap is there and will get wider. china will become more powerful. francine: has world growth peaked? was the g7 a peek? we saw a tweet from president trump that said they are looking at tariffs on carmakers for that

instability of negotiations for president trump? president trump is a wildcard on a trade. he left the g7 summit threatening more tariffs on autos. i agree autos are important for europe and the united states. whether mr. trump and mr. trudeau gets along, that bilateral flow of cars between ,anada and the united states that is an important part of the u.s. auto industry. there are big pieces on the table. a lot of uncertainty. haslinda: what is the biggest risk here? is thehe biggest risk immediate risk -- i think the biggest risk is trade.

6:13 am
-- halfway around the world to get smart on washington. senator mccain put out a tweet that went to the president. this is the way it is. how will his colleagues respond on capitol hill to his clarion call for response to quebec? kevin: it is interesting because republicans on capitol hill particularly centrists led by senator john mccain are arguing that president trump needs to change course. that said, from the administration's perspective, they feel confident that a nafta is not something that will help them with their political base. you have heard this from president trump who said it is not sure it would hurt the united states should they with the drop on the bilateral -- should they withdraw on the

i was at the room across the island of the jw marriott where mike pompeo was set to address the reporters and global media. i can tell you that headlines crossing the terminal and he said there is no deal set without a complete denuclearization and they have a check and verify system in place should the north koreans agree to anything. secretary pompeo will be traveling asia after the summit to meet with u.s. allies to discuss the outcomes of this summit. tom: what will you look for in the next 24 hours? what is the agenda? kevin: president trump and kim jong-un will meet in that hotel right behind me tomorrow at about 9:00 a.m. asia time. 9:00 p.m. new york time. -- thatl be the most

6:17 am
tom: on a basis, we are not near restrictive, are we? >> i do not believe so. the taylor rules is probably in mid-freeze and we are not there that. we should probably be higher. you know how i feel. i do think fundamentals have changed. you take off a few basis points for demographic shifts. normal interest rate is going to be close to where it was precrisis. tom: from economics over to your world which is the real rate. is money free? >> money is less free. the real challenge and equity markets is the fight against the fundamental earnings and what you pay for their earnings against the prospects of higher rates.term that is the course of volatility. so much of the last decade, probably less from earnings
6:18 am
growth. last couple of years, as much from earnings growth and less for multiple expansion which will be a driver of volatility. to us, it is great, back basics. francine: do you expect more volatility to come and does it come from good volatility? drew matus: i think it is anxiety. i think people have trouble wrapping its head around the idea that u.s. could go well beyond the past record it said years ago. it,ink when we think about when we look at the forecasts from the street, most people put recession in the u.s. around 2020. of the past couple of weeks, it has been backing up. some people are saying 2020 and
6:19 am
maybe 2021. the fact of the matter is when you look at the next 18 months, there does not seem like a lot of risks to drive the u.s. economy into recession. it will take a shot but will take more than one s hock. francine: what kind of shock? instead of a g7, ag six plus six plust that -- a g one, is that the kind of shock? : i think if you look at 2000, 2001, it took corporate malfeasance and the stock market crash and a terrible attack on the u.s. it took multiple events to drive is in recession. we need to ask, what will get the u.s. consumer to pull back?
6:20 am
when there are more job openings then there are unemployed people? something has to break and it is hard looking at the current department to find out what that break would be. haslinda: speaking of shocks, asia is bracing for shocks even though the fed rate hike is factored in. we have had india and indonesia so the fed shouldn't tighten quickly given the impact on emerging markets. consider thed plight of the emerging markets? drew matus: years ago, one of is fed interest rates were to low and that was hurting emerging markets. now s too low -- now it is too high a it is hurting emerging markets. the fed is going as low as it can. i think a bigger risk of the global economy is if u.s.
6:21 am
inflation picks up and the fed has been on pause and have to play catch up. i think that is what the fed is trying to avoid at a gradual pace. haslinda: would you say the fed is right when it said it asian economies are poised and in a good position to navigate fed movement and policies? economyus: if the u.s. is growing, we will be important a lot to consumers and that will help the global economy and not just the u.s. economy. tom: a way to make america great again. gdp, -- while a gdp, you changed the avocado price at

6:23 am
challenges. worrieder when we were treasury debt would disappear and there would not be enough to go around for i will store research reports on how fed could operate. five years prior, we will work with the deficits were too large. i have learned, deficits can be solved and most fiscal issues can be solved and they can be solved relatively quickly. francine: charles, talk to me about treasuries. do we see of flattening yield curve and does it start reversing? is thathe fed biggest dilemma? charles kantor: the yield curve has been a dilemma as the short end has gone up in the long the end has now moved much. the dilemma is as important as it relates to the influence on at present value of cash flows. the long end of the curve is pricing in reasonable real
6:24 am
growth and the move in the short term is a reflection of what the fed has done and expected to do. i think many decades ago as yield curves inverted, a bearish signal. i would be cautious as we move from extra low. as it relates to the inversion, should it happen, it is not enough. whenine: what is your take it comes to the higher dollar? this is where was a lot of the fault lines. does dollar go higher or does it stabilize? willes kantor: the dollar move as it relates to underlying economic growth. what impact the strengthening dollar has on emerging markets is where it's knees increased attention. many of the central banks are seeing strength in dollars.

6:35 am
how these institutions will survive and what they will stand for is central and critical and must be debated. the fact that chancellor merkel is saying there are kernels of truth in what president trump is saying in regards to the need for russia, the debate from russia, tells us we need to revisit these challenging questions. tom: in these kernels of truth we heard,s a theme where these institutions will be with china is the heart of the matter as we have now pull china and to our global institutions? dambisa moyo: yes, i think that is the centraluestion. more fundamentally is these very fundamental ideological differences between the west, which we know has really carved a view around the individual. the idea of market capitalism and freedom and democracy are really about utility of the individual.
6:36 am
china's approach is utility of maximization and very often at the cost or at the concerns of the individual and how businesses react and how we will be able to compete in a world i've decidedmore, leading to more of the chinese view is the question at hand. tissues around globalization and concerns around democracy are pushing towards this greater debate. trumpne: overall, is the administration and brexit the solution or the problem? dambisa moyo: i think it is an artifact of broader problems. in my book, i talked about these problems bubbling under the economy. we can say stop markets are performing and we are seeing growth and improvement in unemployment numbers. there are structural problems that are threatened to end the global -- two upend the global

demographics that will push down potential growth rates. ours is very modest. one of the reasons people are focused the debate on immigration, they tend to be risk takers. they are abandoning their homes and coming to the united states and trying to do something with that. what you do is you bring in a lot of people who have traits you want in your economy. you want people who are risk takers and the like. as we are able to grow and maintain a growth rate in the shorter term of around 3%. you will see productivity rebound. attract.egin to is there will be more people want to come to be an estate and there will be more growth -- to the united states and there will be more growth. the period after the great recession, a period to look away from.

6:48 am
these markets are not as transparent as you would see in a more developed economy and that creates challenges. i am optimistic we will see more transparency not because of incidences because of things abroad but more generally because of social media and emphasis of more regulation. i think there will be more pressure for emerging markets investment to become more to the forth. we saw a massive outflow, the biggest in 18 months in may. can emerging markets avoid a crisis? : we can't just talk about emerging markets but the countries involved. if we just talked about emerging markets, there will be challenges. i think a lot will because it traded in certain countries --

6:51 am
china will have a larger part of gdp? a separate question, what is president trump going to do about it? : i am optimistic that china, 50 years from now, will be a bigger share. impact in many other parts especially emerging markets, one could argue, perhaps it is a bigger share of the world gdp. i do not think the next equilibrium will be a linear path. i think there will be a lot of challenges. i would not dare to try to suggest when it might occur. i am a bullish on the fundamentals in the united states in terms of it being a place where it has water and traditionally it has been able to attract immigrants, which are risk takers. there are very positive stories

in the united states. the united states remain the country that is good at innovating and changing direction very quickly. it feels like it is at the wrong path. i would argue and i would hope president trump and the administration recognize we have been in the world of protectionism before after the 1930's depression. that did not work. it slowed down the recovery and increased unemployment. and growth was particularly hampered. we know what happens in a word of acute protectionism. i hope it is taxes and not a new position. francine: where are the markets complacent? of possibleecter protectionism, it seems like the markets are largely ignoring it. are they not thinking it is a possibility? drew matus: i think they are waiting and seeing. you hear a lot of noise about
