at 11:30, we are joined by blackstone's chief executive steve schwarzman. and later on, we speak to the facebook coo sheryl sandberg. but first, let's get straight to bloomberg first word news. >> a bloomberg scoop. president donald trump asked white house lawyers to explore his options for removing federal reserve chairman jerome powell. happened earlier in the year, less than two months after trump discussed firing him. lawyers examine the legality of stripping powell of his chairmanship, leaving him as just a governor. it would beed questionable to fire the chairman without cause. may impose sanctions on turkey for buying a russian missile defense system. the administration is considering three sanctions packages. the idea with the most support is to target several turkish defense companies. is turkish president erdogan

now equal to more than 3% of france's economy. global news, 24 hours a day on air, on tictoc, and on twitter, powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. this is bloomberg. -- this isre bloomberg. francine? francine: thank you, the anna. -- viviana. jinpingt trump and xi will meet at g20 for what they call extent talks. to say what trump had about it as kicked off his reelection campaign in orlando. >> i spoke to president xi, terrific president, a great leader of china. spoke to him this morning at length, and we will see what happens. we will have a good deal and a fair deal or not have a deal at all, and that is ok. francine: meanwhile, the u.s. may impose sanctions on turkey for buying a russian self-defense.
the administration is considering three sanctions packages. the idea with the most support is the target of several turkish defense of these -- companies. the turkish president erdogan is likely to ask trump to back down at g20. so let's keep it on global trade and g20. joining us is our guest. thank you for coming on. trumpt know if president is planning multiple fronts or if it is just tweeting by storm for his election campaign. >> i think it is both, nothing particularly new. there is plenty on the agenda coming. he is launching his campaign, we might see more of this, i suspect. francine: might see more of this translating into policy? if you look at turkey today what do you sell the lira because they have sanctions or do you dismiss it as a mexico with president said we're going to
fight hard and then they find an agreement? wolfango: the sanctions on turkey are coming. this is not a process just by the white house, but by congress. this is a mistake they are making him a believing they can reach a deal with trump over this sanctions process related to the acquisition of the s 400. the moment in a rise in turkey, turkey will face sanctions. the president has to choose five out of the remaining 12. can a mixture between strong and self, but that is basically the baseline at this point. francine: what does that mean for global trade? does this get worse or better quickly? wolfango: the sanctions, they are obviously a big deal. a nato country sanctioning another nato country is a big deal in terms of bilateral relationships. but terms of global impact, i don't think it will have much of an impact whatsoever.
it is a very specific issue. 400, the u.s. has already sanctions china and nobody has noticed. francine: what does it mean for global trade? i ask every time if it will get fixed or get worse. wolfango:. yeah. -- yeah. it is not just global trade. it is not just about the trade deficit, it is much more than that. it is the u.s. asking china to reinvent its economic model, which is not going to happen yet. so in terms of the short-term, we know they will meet next week. best case scenario will be a restart of the trade talks. nothing more than that. it is still early. there is pressure on both sides because the economy is slowing down. we have seen the u.s. payroll, we have seen data from china. politics was in the driving
seat, maybe the economy would apply more of a role, but there is no -- would play more of a role, but there is no easy solution. francine: looking at central-bank policy about does the world need more stimulus where are we just creating another problem? wolfango: anything that central bankers can do would not fix the challenges that we have. we need a buffer to soften the impact. and even that buffer is incrementally becoming thinner and thinner. but the central banks cannot even fix the fiscal issue. certainly, they cannot fix the much bigger issues in the global agenda. francine: what do you worry about in the global agenda? when you look at supply chains, are they really being tested or is it just tough talk? wolfango: i think there is a mix of the two. we have already seen decoupling. google is now producing
u.s.-bound motherboards in taiwan. foxconn is producing more and more iphones outside of china. companies are adapting themselves to the new reality. ,t's challenging, it's costly but i think it has been signaled for a very long time. this trend will continue for the foreseeable future. francine: how much do you worry about the middle east? the region seems much more unstable now and that could have a huge impact on oil prices. wolfango: we don't believe in a conflict between iran and the u.s.. chances of that are very low. people are talking about an accidental war, wars do not happen accident, to my knowledge. sanctions will continue. maintain ae the u.s. more active role in patrolling the streets of hormuz, but nothing more than that at the end of the day. francine: thank you.
showstopper of a deal at the paris air show. british airways owner iag signed a letter of intent for 200 of the grounded next jets. billions.s, values at it gives boeing the opportunity to turn around the narrative of the biggest source of profit. walshchairman william personally vouch for the planes, saying he would get on board tomorrow. christian sewing is planning sweeping changes to deutsche ,ank's top management considering replacing the chief of finance and the investment banking head. he may takened control of the investment bank on an interim basis while the lender searches for a permanent successor. plan for a new cryptocurrency faces angry pushback from lawmakers. the u.s. house financial services committee chairwoman maxine waters urged the company to halt development of the token
. some are questioning if the coin called libra would have sufficient oversight. francine: today marks the end of the ecb form and portugal, following the end of mario draghi's tenure as ecb president this autumn. though he is on the way out, he has not been holding back. >> in the absence of improvement such that the sustained return of inflation is threatened, additional stimulus will be required. we remain able to enhance our foreign guidance by adjusting its bias and conditionality to account for variations in the adjustment class -- half of inflation. -- path of inflation. i just said that we are ready to use all of the tools to fill the mandate and we do not target exchange rates.
further cuts in policy and mitigating measures to maintain any side effects. we see that the path of conversion is moving more slowly than expected. >> will use all the flexibility within our mandate to fulfill our mandate. bloomberg's matt miller is in portugal where he is joined by guest. over to you. here with one of the founders of this european central bank. before we get to the successes you have achieved here, i want to ask about the things mario draghi said. first off, that he does not target the exchange rate. we take him at his word, but it must be important as an economist to think about the value of your currency. our approach was always that
the exchange rate is one of the most important variables in the an open especially in economy, as the euro area is. it as an exotic this element or try to influence ementhis is -- exogenous el or try to influence it, this is different. >> i spoke to peter pratt, who was also chief economist. he said trump started with this trade war that started this trade war, we are dealing with these issues because of the trade war. do you agree? >> trump is extending -- it is not a trade war, it might be. but these trade tensions to the currency field, another field for battle. i think this is very bad. if a a big difference
central bank is manipulated the exchange rate, like the chinese did. they intervened heavily, buying dollars, keeping the exchange rate down. or exchange rate changes which are the consequence of modern policy. this makes a different -- big difference. the ecb's 20 year anniversary can be considered a success. we all treat of the central bank as if it was normal and has always been there, of course, it hasn't, and you know that well because you started. what do you think about it now? does mario draghi have the tools and credibility to reinflate this economy? >> he has proven he has the ability to do that. but we would like to point to the fact that this is still the youngest central bank in the world. when we started in january, 1999, this was a big success.
there was so much skepticism about the start of this institution. and if you look at the data and inflation expectations, nothing happened. such a tremendous regime shift in the world of central banking, especially in europe, and the euro arrived extremely smoothly. i think this is a great success which could not be forecast. francine: is it possible -- matt: is it possible to be repeated? we have a story on bloomberg which is that facebook is starting to start their own currency. it sounds far-fetched, but they have 2 billion users. and you helped to start this euro currency which we all use today in 27 countries. >> i would not put crypto on the same level. this is competition, this is market driven. cryptocurrencies, etc.. we have still to see how they
compete with currencies issued by central banks. what you need for a currency to be a success as credibility, trust in the long-term existence , and the stability of the currency. i think cryptocurrencies have still to prove they can do that. att: let me ask you about the next moves you expect from mario draghi. it seems the market is already pricing in a rate cut. will he bring back quantitative easing? will he change the rules if he needs to? >> you could observe from his that a change in , wedirection of commitment will see what the council will deliver.
matt: thank you for your time. g, one of the founders of this institution, celebrating its 20th anniversary. francine: thank you so much, matt miller at the ecb forum in sintra, portugal. let's get back to wolfango piccoli from teneo intelligence. haveis the concern you from either the way to ecb is set up for the eurozone? we finally need a banking union or capital markets union? wolfango: my concern, coming from the political side of the story, is the more mario draghi does, the less are the chances all the things you just mentioned, which are badly needed, a banking union, eurozone budget, whatever fiscal capacity, will come. we have seen this in 2012.
in the sense that you take off the pressure by intervening in and some politicians get distracted, let's put it that way. the drive, the impetus to push forward, which is already a difficult impetus given how difficult politics are in multiple countries, but the moment you believe the pressure, the chances to get progress are basically close to zero. francine: peggy so much. wolfango piccoli from teneo intelligence -- thank you so much. wolfango piccoli from teneo intelligence stays with us. bloomberg has learned president trump explored how to remove the federal chairman. we bring you that story next. this is bloomberg. ♪
francine: as the fed meets today , markets have conviction it will cut rates this year. investors are refreshing their portfolios for a return to global dovishness. with the details is bloomberg's dani burger. dani: the qe trade is back on, given rocket fuel ecb yesterday about saying they would cut rates as the first line for added stimulus. so as we look into what people are doing, we are seeing a lot of the qe favorites. that includes debt from spain, italy, and france. we had a french 10 year bonds hit zero, even though yields are coming back. but curve flatness, that tends to be how these take shape. we are also seeing the return of tina.
we are seeing equities do well, but especially u.s. credit. finally, playing defense. we are seeing the u.s. dollar do well and bets that the dollar can survive the latest cut cycle. that means gold is doing better as well as defensive sectors, francine. francine: thanks so much, dani burger with the latest on what we could see. where are getting some big news at of nikkei -- out of nikkei. thinking about shifting 15-30% of output from china. this is because of possible supply train -- supply chain concerns. up next, a roller coaster ride for investors. we talk luxury. this is bloomberg. ♪

citing several unidentified people, apple is asking suppliers to evaluate the cost implications of shifting 15% to 30% of its production from china to southeast asia. let's get back to the director of research. we understand this is because of trade tensions between the u.s. and china. they are worried they would escalate. this has not been confirmed. majoryou assume any company with a presence in china would do the same? >> it is already happening. we were discussing it before the news came out. ofgle is moving production motherboards in taiwan. it is not just about trump. are -- on china. this will not disappear.
companies have to factor that in. if china is on the losing side, who wins? going to do better on this front. it is positioned to profit out of that. thailand, the demography is not great. the philippines, not a match because the environment is not -- the business environment is not great. shifting 15%,e, 30% away from china, do i bring them in because the -- spaces lower? you plan for worst, but can you ring them back if you need to? wolfango: it depends industry to industry. the companies have realized the issue of trade is salient, it
will remain on the agenda for the future. they cannot take that risk. you move it elsewhere and you will see it later on, depending on sector on sector. not taking action now is somewhat foolish. francine: you would look at alternatives or do you think they should be doing it? wolfango: they need to do both depending on where they are, which items we are talking about . not everything has been sanctioned. options is a for must. secondly, you might need to act if you are in the sanctioned list. francine: thank you. wolfango stays with us. the past year has been a roller coaster ride with escalating trade tensions and uncertain demand picture in china.
against the trend, a company continues to manufacture its range exclusively in italy. asia has been a key driver of sales, accounting for 40% of revenue. i am delighted to be joined by the chief executive of salvatori ferragamo. give me a sense about how much you worry about the trade concerns. does it hurt the demand for luxury products? do you have to look at your supply chain and how you move things in and out of countries? for giving me the opportunity of touching this point. this is a peculiar moment for the industry in general and the as heavydustry as much
tension between the market. lucky enough, considering 100% of our supply change is based in italy. for the time being, we have not been affected. there is an interest from the who areconsumer delivering a certain quality of products as well as a certain list of values. assisting attention from the chinese consumer, when in the past, all of the luxury industry has been benefiting approach.se there is an impact coming from
the repatriation of the purchases of some of the chinese ansumer as much as from particular attention connected to a certain type of values the brand starts delivering. francine: give me a sense of whether you are opening more stores in china. they continue to buy their products, how will they shop differently? will they shop more locally? are you opening physical stores or is it through alibaba and things like that? is it through internet sales you will continue to sell to chinese and china. ? observe for what we can , they are very active in terms way wehases and the approach through internet, there
is and still remains a level of sensitivity to the price point and the different market of the world. it is true that considering some of the restriction introduced by in someese government, level ofthis sensitivity to the price point is getting a lower sense of importance for the chinese consumer. what is in that respect more important for them is to try to identify some of the values of the brands to reconnect to the brands through the values that the browns wolfango -- that the brands are proposing. maturitya sense of that the chinese consumer are getting, which is making them more cautious about what they
need and what they want. respect, it is dependent on the logo-driven item. the majority of the chinese consumer that are approaching with aury industry start sense of entering into the luxury world with the sense and need of recognition. it is making reference to a status symbol and the brand and logo as an element that is allowing identification with the brand. francine: is it tough to compete with the big french groups? it is a big group. you have had a change of management. do you feel you are a takeover target or it would be simpler being a bigger group? i would say there are some aspects of being part of a big group that, in any respect
are making this easier from case to case. some of the negotiations, thinking about the negotiations advertising spaces, as , theas the negotiation department store. there is a leverage of many different brands that can be played on. this is something that is facilitating the big groups, but beenld say ferragamo has strong in creating strong partnership and relationship with local partners. recognized toing the brand and is making the with linked and connected local communities in a way. a leverage power we have when we have two discuss and
make negotiations. i would rather believe for brands making special point of view and creating a special connection with the customer and delivering special values, there will always be a space. and theustry is crowded consumers are bombarded by many different brands. more and more, in the new generation, there is the need of connecting with the brand value. francine: thank you so much. salvatore ferragamo chief executive. let's go to jean-claude juncker. jean-claude: you can move markets with a single line in a speech. every word counts. mario'swhy i admire
speeches. it is sad to say i am better be a politician. i can say what i think from time to time. me to tell you the story, my story, which is different from yours. i am privileged to have been part of this from the very start. it is my personal experience and vision i would like to share with you today. witnessed who has every twist and turn of the last 30 years of european politics, i can confirm the road has not been easy. i remain astonished by the strength and relevance of the project. it is full of crisis and lessons
learned. too often, we lose sight of how far we have come and the true value of that success. clock i want to stop the on six moments in time. these six lessons in history that have shaped europe and european union as we know it. one, euro is a political project for our grandchildren. it goes back to the crisis of the european exchange rate mechanism in 1992. this story starts one year a financehen, as minister, i was in charge of the economic and monetary aspects of the conference. this led to the treaty of december 1991, which paved the way for single counts. this is a time from which there
are only two survivors. the euro and myself. [laughter] only one of us is here to stay. two years after the fall of the berlin wall, the signing of the treaty was a proud european moment. with the launch of the single -- of 1989, the treaty was about creating a new future for europe. it was about europe taking its destiny into its own hands. willrope, our collective was put to the test under the pressure of the markets. the united kingdom chose to leave the european exchange mechanism in september 1992. , may 1991, the
british opt out from the single currency of the year before. now, the united kingdom was leaving the exchange rate mechanism. parting of ways was the start of the journey that led to brexit. other countries also faced market pressure. in 1993, the finance ministers of germany and the netherlands also wanted to leave because they believed economic fundamentals were stronger than those of france and others. minister, a finance luxembourg, a country with better fundamentals, this put me in the uncomfortable situation. our currency was the belgian franc.
luxembourg would be under pressure to follow. putting belgium in great difficulties. wasng the negotiations, it the british chancellor who woke us up. loud, if you let germany and the netherlands go, you will never have a single currency. personally, i would like my grandchildren to be able to pay and euro one day. a eurotish counselor, statesman. he was right. andad to find a solution look at the bigger picture. this is what we did, by widening the intervention terms of the exchange rate mechanism terms
make theto 15%, to system less vulnerable to speculation. it was a difficult moment. [indiscernible] francine: that was jean-claude juncker speaking in reference to the need for central-bank independence and reference to mario draghi's speech yesterday that was a market mover, he said central bankers can move the markets. we will have more from jean-claude juncker if he makes any breaking news on brexit. more breaking news on apple. apple is asking suppliers to evaluate the cost implications of shifting 15% to 30% of production from china to southeast asia. here is alex, who covers technology. wolfango is still with us.
factre talking about the most major tech companies would do the same. do we know, if you are looking into it, the way apple operates, that they will actually do it? on the u.s.l depend and china. they are evaluating the cost implications so that if there is tensions,g of those they will probably pull the trigger on this. about 15% toing 30% of production capacity in china. apple gets 40% of its revenue from the u.s. like thehat are things app store and other services. that means 40% of iphone sales are also in the u.s. a huge chunk would still be made in china and imported at high duty if that were to come about. francine: if you take the
manufacturing away from china, doesn't mean the chinese by less apple phones? already seen them buying fewer apple phones. china has been low to -- has been loathes to crackdown on apple. apple employs millions of people indirectly in that country in its supply chain. some of that is taken out of china, it may mean it is easy for chinese regulators to say we are going to impose retaliatory measures on apple, given what the u.s. is doing to huawei. francine: thank you. boris johnson has extended his lead in the race to become the u.k. prime minister in the second round of voting. he picked up 120 six votes, nearly three times as many as jeremy hunt, who came in second.
we will have plenty more on that with wolfango. when you look at yesterday's debate, it was a shift. they were going after rory stewart. a week ago, no one cared what this outsider did. suddenly he is seen as a rival. does he stand a chance of becoming u.k. prime minister? wolfango: i do not think he does. i agree with you there was some gagging against him by them. overall, if we look at the performance there, --, a loss of touch from reality. remainst runner here johnson at the end of the day,
unless he implodes between now and the 22nd of july. underne: what does policy boris johnson -- he will go to the eu and try to renegotiate. what does he do next? wolfango: we have another extension and an early election. we are changing one of the characters. the play remains the same. the issue now is the majority .hey have in parliament the referendum, nobody wants it. at the end of the day, getting to a referendum is complicated. at the end of the day, the
moment we are going to go to an impasse, and i think we will go to an impasse by the end of october. the only way out is what everybody yesterday was denying. francine: does he have a chance of winning? that is the problem, nobody seems to be set to wind a majority. the reality is the u.k. political system is imploding. election.european here we are supposed to use a system that is prone to create majorities. impasse.have an francine: thank you. in the meantime, we continue listening to jean-claude juncker in portugal, saying it is unfair to attack central-bank
francine: trump is launching his reelection bid in orlando last night as he tweeted about the european. -- tweeted about the european central bank. joining us now, stephanie baker has been following the trump administration closely. stephanie, he has launched his campaign, tweeting about the european central bank. does he get more votes? stephanie: hillary clinton is it going to be on the ticket, think he wants to run on the economy, he wants to run on record low unemployment and he keep americatheme,
great, which sounds flat. to keep his base fired up, make sure they turn out. he does not have a strategy for expanding beyond that. in 2016.arrowly won if he is going to win, he needs to expand beyond his base of support. francine: thank you for joining us. we are going to talk about whether jay powell should be worried about his job, as well. limerick surveillance continues in the next hour. tom keene joins me and we will talk to the blackstone chief executive, steve schwarzman. this is bloomberg. ♪

for how we ended up at sub 2% thed growth that preceded trump administration. whether we like his policies or not, the question is what do those policies do to growth in the future? on the trade side, you are right, if we do not like to percent, we are going to like 1% less. moving towards protectionism will deliver us to that outcome. it is not a foregone conclusion. we do not want to prejudge the g20. it is clear large parts of his administration are hawkish on trade. trump wants to get reelected. he wants a deal. that means you have to leave open the possibility that you get some kind of deal in the trade dispute. the heart of the trade dispute sits on the back burner. tom: secretary clinton and trump are against tpp. we will have a
conversation with stephen schwarzman in our next hour. he is the great china free-trade advocate to the president. ear.s the president's how critical is it for free-trade people to step up and brief this president? gene: it is important what you find when you go to beijing and you talk to foreign business people is that -- i am not sure they are believers in free-trade. it is the question about how do you deal with the perceived unfairness? do you force china to open its markets and play by a certain set of rules or do you close down access to the u.s. market to penalize china for not playing by the rules? that is the distinction here. a focus prefer to see on opening china's markets and forcing it to play by international rules. that is what the focus has to be at this stage. francine: how much do we know
about whether the democrats would be tougher on china? wants a deal, but if he asked -- if he acts tough, it may give him popularity. a democratic president may be tougher on china. what to the markets do with that? gene: they price and uncertainty premium. this is a cycle that feels like it is being killed by a thousand cuts. it is whittling away at confidence. uncertainty increases over whether or not how supply chains evolve in the future, whether it is a bifurcation or something more extreme. the way businesses react is by not investing. asset markets react by suffering. it means you are going to have a hit to earnings from some combination of weaker growth and the cost of creating new supply chains and with a certain degree
of uncertainty of what the operating conditions are once you move. taxes change, tariffs change, nontariff barriers change. the point is, there is going to be uncertainty. francine: thank you. we will get back to you. gene stays with us. coming up, we will speak to the blackstone chief executive, stephen schwarzman at 6:30 in new york. this is bloomberg. ♪

of no deal brexit, the odds of that have gone up. that has made us more cautious on u.k. assets, more negative on pound. as you go through this campaign and start a renegotiation, i think you are ruling out some of the good options. a second referendum is not entirely ruled out. some kind of deal along the way -- along the lines of theresa may's deal is not out, but whoever leads the tory party will be intent on getting this done and getting it out, even if it involves no deal. francine: what happens if there is a general election? corbyn as prime minister could potentially be a headache for investors than a no deal brexit. ite: the way we think about is in terms of ruling in
potentially challenging outcomes and ruling out bad outcomes. if there is a general election, there will have to be some pricing of corbyn risk. that is a material shift in economic policy which would not be friendly for either u.k. stocks, credit, or the currency. francine: gene frieda of pimco stays with us. on pushingi is set the limits of the ecb's firepower until he leaves office. he pledged new stimulus for europe's flagellating academy -- economy. what is the outlook for the year over your and the ecb policy this year -- year-over-year and the ecb policy this year? matt: i am here with guntram wolff of bruegel.
you think of first of all, the interaction between mario draghi and president trump? issident trump saying it unfair that draghi offers the possibility of stimulus, weakening the euro and giving europeans an advantage in trade. guntram: if mario draghi does his job -- mario draghi does his job by reacting to the economic situation and he has signaled we need to act if the situation deteriorates and we have the instruments to target the inflation rate in the euro zone. you wonder why does he have to do this? he repeated several times, uncertainty is the reason why he has to react and send the statement. this uncertainty is down to president trump, comes from donald trump. donald trump is complaining about himself. i thought mario draghi was
replying in an excellent way, saying we don't target the exchange rate. just do our job and target the inflation rate in the euro zone. we just react to the conditions in europe. matt: do we take him -- we take him met his word when he says he will not target the exchange rate, but an economist has to think about the value of a weaker currency in global trade. a guest this morning said if you want to create growth, you have to steal from the future or steal from your neighbor. what you think about the value of the euro in light of the fed meeting? matt: certainly was -- guntram: certainly was well-timed by mario to send the signal yesterday. i expect the pressure on the fed has increased with that, so we are seeing basically a new round of stimulus on both sides of the atlantic, which uses monetary
and financial conditions further. this is not the optimal way and the way i would like it to see. i would like to see stability on the trade front, no trade war. i would like to see the structural reforms we need and more on the fiscal policy front. jean claude juncker spoke about this today. we have a trade war and we have all these problems and uncertainty. only game out is monetary policy. matt: it is always great to talk about the independence of the central bank, but they do not operate in a vacuum. you are in a fantastic position to judge political and legal implications of something like quantitative easing. could mario draghi start asset purchases again and can he expand the program or has it reached its limits? guntram: from the legal point of view, the european court of
justice has been given a broad mandate to the ecb, and the ecb can go much further than they do today. three -- 33%nder issuer limits, these are self-imposed are the ecb governing council, not the court of justice. there is scope to go beyond an increase. the biggest obstacle will be political because in germany and other countries, one looks at this with quite some nervousness. any bond purchase in addition is something the northern european countries will be quite worried about. day, the way the qe is designed, it really tries to do as little risk sharing as possible by letting the natural -- national central banks to the purchase. i think mario draghi may be
right. there is some ammunition and he can use it. matt: let me ask about the struggle between brussels and rome. how do you expect this to work out? draghi made a plea for more fiscal action. rome is trying to expand its spending, it's budget, but it can't because it has run up against the rules. saying theyconti will obey the rules but they need to be changed and i felt like there was a push on the ecb as well. guntram: mario draghi said countries that have fiscal room should act, not there ones -- not the ones with their backs against the wall. emphasized juncker that the rules are interpreted flexibility already. it is not the rules that limit
italy, but market pressure. italy has through its confrontational stance, increased spreads by 100 basis points, which is bad for the italian economy, which is undermining their recovery and which is limiting italian fiscal space. italy has to send strong signals it wants to do the right thing. the structural reforms, and then they will have the fiscal space to act. wolff, theam director of bruegel. tom: matt miller, thank you so much. why are we not in sentra? we could do brexit. francine: should we go to cannes? tom: caroline hyde in cannes later. us, imfinath will join director of research. thrilled she will join us.

the u.s. dollar and what is the pimco call? gene: there are a lot of ambiguities. it is not dissimilar to the bond market. we think we are close to the end of what has been an eight year dollar appreciation cycle, and this is coming as a function of u.s. growth slowing. as you know, a big part of any call on the dollar relates to rate differentials. rate differentials in favor of the dollar peaked six months ago. we think validation by the fed of loser policy would be an accelerator for a turn in the -- looser policy would be an accelerator for a turn in the economy. from a growth perspective, this seems to be an important turning point. against that, we would say some
of the elements of what would mark a more significant selloff of the dollar are not there. the current account deficit is not expanded significantly despite u.s. outperformance. it is not so much that the u.s. dollar will lose its advantage anytime soon, the advantage will just compress. what do you want to sell the dollar against? francine: answer your own difficult question. gene: we would sell it against the combination of things. we find the yen very unique in that it is a "safe currency" that is cheap. typically at this point in the cycle, you were not expected to be cheap so we find the yen an interesting vehicle. almost like a complement to being long fixed income. typically at this point in the cycle, you have more overvalued
emerging-market currencies and in this cycle, they are undervalued about 15% by our estimate. we would like to be long. tom: the president went after mr. draghi yesterday and euro-dollar, everybody went mental. what did the president get wrong? really --allenge is the challenge is really in how do you fear the dollar weaker without effectively undermining your own growth cycle? i think he feels like he can badger other countries to change their policies. i am not sure it is clear to him that imposing tariffs on other countries should make their currencies depreciate against the dollar rather than appreciate. it is one or the other. there was a brief realization with mexico earlier in the year where he seemed to kind of
understand that, but the concern going forward is the policy of mercantilism expands in the currency space, and you get inclusion of currency manipulation somehow linked to tariffs. there is a commerce department proposal to that effect. francine: we will talk more about that next, gene frieda of pimco. tomorrow, we will be speaking to the norge's bank owner. we will talk about negative york, 5:30 a.m. in new 10:30 a.m. london. this is bloomberg. ♪

more limited than 10 years ago, and that is something they have to pay attention to. precisely, thet amount of space. what is the to do list from you and your team for central bankers trying to assist their economies back to something approximating normal? outlookven the economic we are seeing in many parts of the world, we welcome the accommodative stance of central bankers and we expect them to continue to be data-dependent, and to communicate transparently their plans. certainly, they are responding appropriately. we are flagging the importance of making sure financial vulnerabilities are not building up. that is a concern, and their should be macro protections used

argument to be made to continue to be data-dependent and see how the risks play out. at this point, what we are seeing a central banks signaling a willingness to step in may be sooner than we thought. when actions take place, that will be dependent on the numbers. tom: i mentioned in my introduction, the wonderful work of kenneth rogoff at the imf. that comes down to our first mark until list, mr. trump -- mark until is hi -- mercantilist mr. trump. kenneth rogoff wrote a paper about the wonderful value of free and floating currencies. is the president overdoing the threat of currency manipulation? a very natural side effect

the last couple of days say he wants to be on the campaign trail, wants to get out and keep going. you are noticing he spoke from teleprompter last night. there were moments when he went off, but there were thousands of people. just remember, they are getting the data on all of those people, because they view them as voters that will get him reelected. tom: could he give that same speech to the same effect to wisconsin, pennsylvania, and michigan? kevin: florida is a key battleground state, so there is a reason why he is kicking it off there. michigan, wisconsin, pennsylvania, and ohio. francine: you have great insight into washington. there is a belief president trump may be in his methods too
trump on china. do you have any idea how a democrat would deal differently with china? kevin: the populist streak on the left is just as much rampant on -- as on the right. should bernie sanders or elizabeth warren become president, they have more in common with the populist rhetoric than they would with joe biden. the rocky populist waters should a democrat be elected are still very much alive and well. bob lighthizer testifying yesterday and today on capitol optimisticling he is nancy pelosi advance the usmca. tom: julia coronado with us. now for a briefing on the two americans john identified.
the tension we saw in that orlando video. those people feel the elites have the game. how does chairman powell speak to america and not the stereotype that he is only managing for the elites? julia: that is a tough challenge, and chair powell has tried to do that more conscientiously, both talk to the public, doing town halls and listen events, recognizing the public needs to understand their mission and what they are doing as well as the market. tom: i get more mail on this than anyone else. there is a huge body of america that feels underemployed. can any central bank effect change? julia: the only way they can effect it is to let the labor market stay as strong as it is for as long as possible, to reengage those people. the stronger the labor market
is, the longer it runs strong and the more the people who lost out the most will gain training and jobs and real wage gains. , to is the job of the fed keep this recovery going. francine: julia coronado, thank you. up next, stephen schwarzman, blackstone chairman. we talk about his gift to oxford, 150 million. it will bring together the to havees faculty ethical issues regarding artificial intelligence. this is bloomberg. ♪
♪ latest in a is the string of mega-donations to higher education. given onehwarzman has hundred 50 million pounds to oxford university, the largest contribution in its history. tophen schwarzman is close donald trump and is a scholar when it comes to china. i am pleased to welcome the blackstone chief executive stephen schwarzman.
thank you for coming in. this is a faculty hub that rings -- bringsties faculty the humanities faculty to speak about artificial and tele-gate -- artificial intelligence. stephen: it is bringing together the humanities faculties where oxford is ranked number one in the world, and they have never been together. it has all been separate buildings, and now they will be combined to get the benefit of cross disciplinary stuff. we will have a major performing arts center that will enable certain themes in the humanities to get played out. as i was learning about what oxford was doing, i realized their capabilities in humanities and philosophy in particular played right into my concerns
about what happens when you introduce ai globally, and what happens, the displacement of workers, all kinds of other unexpected consequences. ofusing these oxford core western civilization to figure out what is human, as you make decisions, what should be implemented is i think the second piece beyond just the technical. francine: the politicians no longer listen to the academics. they no longer listen to the global elite. why would they listen to anyone from oxford? stephen: the reason is in the intersection between technology, about which governments know pretty much next to nothing. and the real world where workers can be adversely affected, which
changes how society works and can change political things. it is important to have somebody who is an arbitrator who can make recommendations to government, who have knowledge thatroach the two areas they are naturals. just leaving this to the government, as we can see in the the issue of, as privacy is quite difficult. francine: there are so many concerns about ai and how so many countries like china process and use the data to profile their citizens. stephen: that is china's right. the west has a different set of core values. one of the things is we are going to be running into this issue of what really are the
core values we care about? other societies with different cultures will do things differently, and we can't make them do what our values are, and vice versa. at: stephen schwarzman come the library at oxford going back to 1602 has tomorrow down article out analyzing -- a modern article out analyzing the tweets of the president of the united states. you are the sole remaining free trade are here. , butw has done a great job larry has been ill. trade. it on free how do you not the first mercantilist -- nudge the first mercantilist towards free-trade? stephen: what is underlying that -- and i have no responsibility for any tweet, by him or anyone
else. what i think the president is looking for -- and i am not his spokesman -- is basically equivalence in terms of open markets and tariffs and trade. not a real desire to entrench the united states in some way. it should be fair competition. all of these issues that are being used as tactics, if you will, are done to bring people to the table so you can get to equal. the best products when, the best wins., the best price if the u.s. wins, that is good. i don't think there is another agenda.
developedvolution as market countries like china get to parity. tom: i don't mean to interrupt, but this is really important. people do not know that you have given not only to m.i.t. and also oxford, but have donated substantial money toward the education of china. you are a great listener of the leadership of china. what are you hearing from the leadership of china if they go to g20, as they deal with this president? what is the nuance you can give us? a time where of things are impenetrable. the negotiations that have been going on basically were stopped by the chinese side. each of the two countries, as you have seen, we have all seen, seems to be bifurcated, going to
their corners and scaring the business community and creating an adversarial situation. that will continue unless it is changed by the two presidents. the meeting in japan is quite important because they have the ability to reset expectations, close, but for some reason sort of disappeared. if that can be put together in terms of framework, then the trade negotiators can go back to work and perhaps get something done. francine: for our global audience, listeners, and viewers , we are with stephen schwarzman from blackstone who has given 150 million pounds to oxford university.
what would be top of your curriculum, job displacement or ethics? there are a variety of things, seven different areas ranging from english and history to theology. the core curriculum of the liberal arts, if you will. that will be taught. in addition, we will set up a new -- oxford will set up a new won'tics activity which just use the humanities, which oxford.nusual asset at it will use other parts of the university. oxford is typically ranked in the top five in the world. if you can bring that to bear, we will have better outcomes. francine: do you worry about brexit? you are giving at a moment we do
not know if we will attract talent to this country or if students will need visas. stephen: the u.k. has been around a long time, at least 1200 years. things in the short-term are not nearly as important as what we are trying to do in the long term. brexit will take its way. that is up to the british and the parliament, the government. it is so well covered, nobody knows how quiet it -- quite how it will turn out. what is important is we set up the right structure for 100 years, 200 years. francine: if you look at the program tom was mentioning, the schwarzman scholars program, has the trade war affected that? stephen: that program as sort of except we take
extraordinary people and instead of going to oxford, going to china and teaching them about how china works. it started with the endorsement of president xi and president obama, and thus far we have not been affected. education more generally in china has felt somewhat of a chill, as there are a variety of issues whether they are trade or other things affecting china, leading it to more of a nationalistic approach. i think schwarzman scholars is viewed as a window on the western world and for the west into china. i think it serves everyone's purpose to have schwarzman scholars thriving. "m: i have got to play off a wall street journal" article on the size and success of your blackstone. in the last 10 years, stephen schwarzman has not done goldman
sachs by 1007 hundred 42 basis 1742 basis -- points, 20% a year, a stunning outperformance. are you getting too big? can you move the deal -- needle on deal transactions anymore with the scale you have invented? stephen: the answer is sure, or we wouldn't do it. we are not in the business of trying to hurt customers and investors. we are trying to help them. the way you get bigger in our world is not to go into one strategy and make it so big it cannot perform anymore. the approach we have always have -- had is to have new ideas, and they should be right sized, and we should catch an opportunity where there is really great
returns, and we keep our more mature funds. they grow, the world grows. their job is not to grow at an accelerated rate. we also do not need many deals in each of our funds. in a normal year, maybe we would do 10 transactions for fund, just a little range on either side. in private equity, we have 250 people around the world. if we can't do 10 really interesting investments, we are doing something wrong. tom: buried in the thought at oxford is an ancient gothic book from 1640, what do we do with deutsche bank? it is a great book. what would you do with deutsche bank? stephen: this one is sort of a tough one. i don't know that they were writing about it in 1640, but they certainly are in 2019.
the issue there -- and i don't work at deutsche bank -- they basically have an investment bank and a consumer banking system, and the consumer bank is not real profitable and the investment bank is suffering really from this endless questioning. it is hard to keep any service , as yoution together ask that kind of question, which reflects questions everybody is asking, including sort of shareholders and board people. if you wereancine: in charge at deutsche bank, would you consolidate? stephen: i would not be in charge. there are certain things we can pick and life and that is one pic i would not choose. francine: would you be fed chair
and do you believe the world needs more stimulus? more troubleg ahead by stimulating too much? know, sort of three economic blocks. you have china with its own issues but is still growing area,ere in the 5% to 6% despite the current levels of tariffs. the u.s. has slowed down a little bit. my own guess, nobody knows these things, they will keep being revised anyhow. they were reported around 2% to 2.5%. given that europe has running negative interest rates and slower growth, the issue is really europe. the currencies start adjusting to these negative rates and u.s. slower growth. it is sort of logical that u.s.
interest rates might come down a little bit. we are slowing, but we are not anywhere near approaching a recession. tom: i want to talk about 2020. -- explained to- disaffected republicans why they have to support president trump for a second term. how do you and the president get disaffected gop to support him? stephen: i am not a political election expert. i am like everybody else, i watch this stuff. i think what will drive the republicans to come out as which democrat is the nominee -- is which democrat is the nominee. to the extent that democratic toinees prove threatening middle-class or other people.
woncally last election was pretty much by suburban women who went to the republicans in 2016. at the moment, that is not the case. it depends on the issues they are facing. if they think democrats have gone too far left, they will won't know whowe that person is. we won't know what they really believe until later. francine: what does the u.s. economy need now? what kind of policies does the u.s. economy need from the president? stephen: i think the only change in policies -- we are already running really big deficits, so there is not a lot of room on the fiscal side. you could move interest rates down a little bit, but they are
actually pretty low. whether they get a little lower is great symbolically. it is not going to change what is this decides to do. it just gives you confidence. i think the type of thing that would work was if some of the trade issues were resolved so people could have the confidence to know what is going to happen. that is what slows and economy. -- an economy. francine: that is stephen schwarzman is a pledge of 150 million pounds to oxford. tom: this afternoon, scarlet fu relating our coverage, the fed decides. ♪
