to signal concern in the u.s. >> people are much less confident than they were a year ago. scarlet: we have seven seconds to go before the closing of the the down managing to finish 27,000. >> do you pop the champagne on this, joe? joe: that is heartbreaking red there. 2999.86. >> underperforming on the big cap indexes. that is an interesting one. it consistently lags behind. on boeing, the company is the executive in charge of the 737 max program is
retiring. we know they have had a lot of issues with the plane. i have been trying to fix the software issues. boeing naming mark james to take over oversight of that 737 max program. >> retirement might be a nice way to put it. the big event this week was two days of testimony. >> he seems to be in favor of cutting rates. deliberately emphasize things going wrong globally. he is not that sensitive to economic data. i think his room -- his view is that inflation is somewhat under control. is such a dramatic change from six months ago.
joe: when the global outlook significantly dims, your ability to be purely data dependent goes away. you have to try to act ahead of the term. the fed has admitted that it does not have the conventional quality space to fight a garden-variety recession anymore. it is really about recession prevention. luke: that is the only game in town that requires you to act when the u.s. economy is falling off a cliff. >> we talked about this idea that when you give financial markets what they want, they will want more. as the fed given the markets too fed given thee markets too much? michael: if you cut rates, you are much less likely to get
unintended consequences. if you see the fed cutting rates and economic data getting better, this might be part of financial markets that suffer. even if you look at what qe2, long-term treasury yields backed up 100 basis points. >> we might have seen the bottom for 10 year yields for now. michael: i think you have. the 30 year, even more. joe: given this move over this long-duration bed, lots of potential losses. been people have positioning more tactically for that.
the computers over in london. bond.s not long people are positioning for the backup. the constraining factor is the rest of the world, the global environment. that is the constraining factor. >> i have to get your check on some of the corporate earnings. people are worried about a slowdown in manufacturing. that gross margin continues to roll over. that trend had been pretty much intact. how troubling is it for the broader manufacturing sector? michael: i think we'll is a mixed earnings and manufacturing. that has been the story of the last couple of quarters.
it is not a uniform slowdown. certain management seems to be able to navigate it. much more than others. demand -- end demand is still okay. this does not feel like 2016, let alone 2011 or 2012. >> michael, thank you for joining us. luke, you as well. julie sweet was named as the n.f eccentri has been run by the interim ceo, david. that does it for the closing bell. ? is up next.iss
phillips curve is dead. socialident targeted media and gets ready to take executive actions on the 2020 census and citizenship. we will talk growth, tech and regulation. powell's second day on the help. on the globalions economy. >> central banks around the world are seeing this. the neutral interest-rate is lower than we thought. the natural rate of unemployment is lower than we thought. missouri causey has not been as accommodating as we thought. trends have injected uncertainty into the supply
chain, many have removed their -- moved their supply chains. many moved to mexico and then they found that mexico could be the target of terrorists. the consequences of failing to do so would be highly unpredictable. more, i want to bring in the president and founder of the upper research. he joins us from chicago. jim, i know you are on the market side of things. there was a strong jobs data report. 220,000. what is the case to be cutting rates right now? >> i think this is strong enough for fifth.ng this is higher in young than 99% of sovereign debt yields
worldwide. it is one of the highest interest rates in the developed world. interest rates are all about relative gain. 2.5% is not a restrictive rate. that is an absolute argument. on a relative base, our rates are way too high, it is restrictive, that is why the yield curve is inverted. we have to bring them down into the range of other rates. i am arguing that there is an international perspective about interest rates. everybody else's rates matter. we can't stand out as an outlier because we will do damage to our economy. >> that is as good an argument as we have heard about how a rate cut my feet justified. justified.
we heard larry kudlow say similar things about the phillips curve. aoc got how to admit that there are problems with it. >> he said you are right, the phillips curve trade-off does not exist anymore. that is news breaking. she got it right, he confirmed that the phillips curve is dead. the fed will lower interest rates because we are growing rapidly without any inflation. i look forward to discussions with madame aoc. have aow wants to meeting with aoc. why was this so significant? >> the fed has a dual mandate of height -- high employment and low inflation. they want to be able to say they're working on both ends of the mandate. the phillips curve is that there
is a direct relationship between inflation and employment. we know that has not worked for a couple of decades. the fed stubbornly needs that because of their dual mandate. if they are ready to admit the truth and walkway from that theory and say there are economic reasons that payrolls go up and down but they're not the same reasons, they will run themselves into a problem. how do you set policy? you have to pick one mandate over the other. you don't want to be in the game. he went as far as to say that maybe that theory does not work. an acknowledgment of -- acknowledgment of what is obvious. i am happy he said it. thingre finding a new they can operate under. >> changing the mandate does not seem possible in this climate. is there a way to tweak it to satisfy the market reality?
variable that we can rely on? that is the problem. i don't think there is. any are more tied to inflation target. if the phillips curve goes away, congress can scream at them that you don't care about employment. inflation toed on the exclusion of employment. why don't you start focusing on some sort of version of employment targeting? i don't think that would work but from an optics standpoint, that is the way they would be pushing the fed. this is why it is such a momentous thing. honestly, he walked it back a little bit today. maybe opening the door that it does work. time will tell. i hope you are in the room when that aoc meeting takes place.
that is jim bianco. ed hammond is standing by right now. i am here with the ceo. conference.resting i want to get into what is going on in the lodge. let's talk about 401(k)s. talk to us why -- about why it is so important. joey: 38 million americans don't have retirement accounts. for are not remotely ready retirement. incredible tax incentive for the government. that means you can put money
into an earned today account and it can compound, tax-free for a very long time. the value of that is tremendous to an employee. they are allowing a lot more people to participate in the economy. we were not taking advantage of it enough. we would match 100% of what .mployees contribute that helps people put a lot of money away for retirement. earners in thest company were maxing out what they could put into a 401(k). this helps bridge the income
inequality gap by not just moving money to these people but also helping them participate in markets where value creation has occurred and where a lot of that value creation has not gone to his lower earners and companies. they don't participate in equities the same way as higher earners. >> one of the questions that you -- we ares asked is in a red-hot market. i look at this one, up 300%. why don't you go now? >> i think they do. >> the thing about taking a not thepublic is it is
end goal. it is not the end goal for any of our companies. it is a nice steppingstone. you need capital, a currency, you can be used for acquisitions. if you need those things, going public makes sense. of red-hot and capturing that market, we are usually playing a longer game. when al is to figure out company is ready to go public. if some of those factors exist. then with -- we will consider taking a company public. i don't think it is the thing to do at this moment for them. >> will it be the next one? joey: i don't know for sure. it has a good shot. dotdash is doing well.
i think it is too small to be public but it is not impossible. billionave a couple of dollars in cash. what other companies are you looking at? this we are considering much more seriously than the past. minority investment. minority investment in ways that we can increase ownership over time. value to thereal company. as we have of that the market and the way the market has developed, there is this gap of things, a growth stage that has been available to us. go muchr have to earlier or much later. that middle stage, great companies are being built, great consumer products are being built. we want to participate in that.
