6:35 am
at least they all stood up yesterday and paid a moment of silence in tribute to the over hunted thirty thousand people estimated to have lost their lives as this conflict has dragged on. like i said lowest common denominator stuff but you're absolutely correct in saying that these two sides leave this first ground as entrenched as ever in their positions. no significant breakthroughs to speak out and very little concrete progress at all whether we're talking about ending the violence itself giant asked whether like you said trying to get humanitarian aid convoys through what even ensuring safe passage for men women and children were besieged in the cities especially the older the old town of the homes which is one of many cities. right now which find themselves besieged on and obviously the political transition process and that whole element the future of pressure that president bush are some stuff that was never in any way shape or form even

knew welcome to the program i'm on call someone bring me the show today from the world economic forum on the way the rocks here and doubles this meeting brings together business leaders politicians officials and economists to debate the states all the well beforehand. this was billed as a post crisis meeting this most blessed be the time when we all got together to talk about long term issues that no longer fearing an imminent financial collapse or a breakup of the eurozone. that said talk more about that now with my guests today the highly respected economist of them pose and he's the president of the pizza stone is achieved when special economics and also when it's said that between two thousand minus two thousand twelve. he was a member of the bank of england's much a policy committee just too just to sort out those details said. let me and ask about double sista has this been a post crisis meeting in
6:47 am
your view. i think it has and therefore it's been interesting to see which governments distinguish themselves so you think about the japanese prime minister coming through and making a very strong statement for future for japan. the reunion we are coming through and making a strong pitch for review to last in economic terms. you had a background hum of a tree. us trade or business michael feldman was one of the most popular book people here which is actually a good sign that people want to talk trade with the us again. so he was a post crisis dallas. but in your attachment to talk about the long term issues and admittedly the people you're not actually is good at dealing with lockyer bishops now from our perspective it seemed like a tree as it sinks me seeing things are not as bad as the geese to be the thing that all great aunt i think that's a fair characterization i think it's cheekily true part of the corporate so part of what
6:48 am
happens the world economic forum is you have a lot of multi national companies from all over the war. and they are still sitting on lots of catch almost universal. and not yet really investing in a little timid not yet knowing what to do with all the catch there's also within the financial sector particularly in europe since they still have to consolidate and build their capital base ahead of upcoming tax to your right cheek in the corporate side to respect and a defense that governments were actually pretty forceful. you say then that this year's meeting has changed. you will view all what the potential risks are in the global economy. i don't worry you know it's it is a key for tv tropes that whatever circumstances that the poster into the wrong sixty bucks for men. and i'm sort of begin at the moment with the consensus that. it seemed really global rates can see. recent argentina which ari become element at the ten weeks can ski race in
6:49 am
india are for sale the concert was a political groups in thailand turkey and so on but nobody seems he's focusing on its spinnaker it's the kind of things that sent markets move in cycles together. we all be missing but the good news is you look at us. china uk japan. a lot of the big economies look pretty subtle. two don't sound too pessimistic but when it comes to the global outlook. no i'm actually not and dom i'm actually more optimistic probably even than the consensus here because i'm a little more worried about europe. the bank stress tests and some a lot less worried about china in the near term comes from. and i think that the emerging markets which of course the term everybody uses here a more differentiated so what use to be called the bricks minus china on all the spare ribs that russia india brazil south africa not doing so great but a whole range of other countries. vietnam poland
6:50 am
she lay dead are seemingly within striking distance to allow no bears down on the emerging markets and the emerging markets except i mean i really do think i really do think there is three years china has its own case i think the green dp a bit of a slowdown in china and my colleagues begins to believe. maybe a bit of a slowdown in china in twenty fourteen but it's mostly good slowdown in china get on sustainable growth path cut corruption. the speculation real estate. then there's russia india brazil south africa which i think are doing just the classic ring of they spent a little too much for luke to lose money ahead of elections and brody too long they are now to pay for it. and then there's this vast world of emerging markets and obviously their places like egypt where people are very concerned that there are so many places along with the buzz here in my experience was was reminding people that stops there in africa in many places make huge strides in recent years. latin america isn't just argentina. things
6:51 am
like that. i was told to the formal central banker in due twenty thirteen was seen as a year when central banks around the world. later that week they called the fed will result in the us states a cat song that printing money kept on churning out money into the us economy and also a he was said to the marriott argued the president of the european central bank ecb single handedly saved the eurozone. do you think that's twenty fourteen will also be a new brand that the central banks will play as big a role. i think they will accept united states the united states the transition from her dainty tea yelling it's not any real change. it's perfectly good. i think it's more that the recovery of us is proof that he did more resilient than we thought that even though last year we have the paper started. we had the next us fiscal policy the us private economy going i was asked about to yell and say she had a safe pair
6:52 am
of pants. she's enormous and had breakfast with us. richie twenty central banker this morning. this year he was saying how prospective candidates are obsolete. its central banks and other parts of the well so i think they said it's not the same thing wrong with that. let's do it now but you look at china where the people's bank is playing a huge role in deciding how quickly to liberalize markets how to shut down so that banks. how much speculation or is in real estate looking to pay and work of nick wrote in his team have really done great things to get cheap and out of fifteen years of deflation without crashing the bond market and that is taking real single minded effort you look at europe the euro area specifically in the cbi think it's probably the most controversial the central bank's rate. on one hand they have taken this huge responsibility for the tests of all to take a picture of scope of the two are quality
6:53 am
repeat. and it's finally up to them. the fate of europe's long term if they do a bad exam and don't tell the truth everyone will lose face if they do good exam. they have to be tough but hope that there's no future it's around thirty four. the most of us are actually quite confident that the ecb tried to retake at the same time on the monetary side. the cd is actually in my opinion and a few others. elise mind missing its mandate coined the maastricht treaty its post to worry about price stability beating inflation your two percent. toss to be attached to money grow on both those criteria. it's very clear that inflation is too little money. love you stated inflation. i think that i feared inflation but not switch for its own sake gone bad. but the patients assigned to the economy. use you generally don't get stained inflation on the market economy in a functioning market um and so
6:54 am
will be half year deflation may lead me be that because some wages go up because the euro is not going to the roof that we don't get literal be cliche but it's not them a card. the imf said in a deflation is a signal europe still has severe problems so severe lack of credit by one. the station basically means folding prices them from a consumer expected that doesn't sound too bad but for the general economy for the corny as a holy it is pre bout that we've seen it before me but to just to clarify issues that inflation is well not just computers go down and prices universities go up to his surprise first up inflation is everything is falling at the same time. on average and that's very bad for people to take no credit because the amount they took out before it now gets harder and harder to pay off it's also very bad for planning
6:55 am
because consumers to see falling prices to a whole pack which produces false more. and so businesses of travel planning. it's also can be hard for a wager or because he can put pressure to overcome their wages even when the rest of the world outside that inflation though is going up to six. it's overtime just to to the european central bank could. are you calling on the european central bank then to do more and to do more heavy lifting so to speak to to revive that the eurozone economy. in my opinion yes i appreciate you putting it that way i think they haven't done the heavy lifting for a couple years even though the situation in europe has not been the earlier he has not been anywhere near good enough millions of people unemployed huge lack of credit for small medium business or outside europe. i did it no investment corporate bastards even a strategic northern europe even if it's a remake should
6:56 am
be fixing this and the key and lock drug use leadership that this forum. buy in summer twenty eleven due to a tokyo empty the promise that it is a panic in our markets last year. but the distant that minimum that was worth doing. but there's so much more a need for central bank with its bank of england the bank of japan. the swiss national bank were served when doing the same circumstance. i want to pick up on the unemployment points a lot of people in the eurozone and also outside the eurozone for the pats are asking when unemployment will stop coming down in the day that these yours and what skills you want to. i think were seen as many people noted. in the bottoming out for. the peak of unemployment can one think of it that way in spain specifically spain has continued to surprise people. and that sort of it's ironic because. he was
6:57 am
the most productive economy of the southern europe before going into the crisis. and so it makes sense it would felt that passes. at least to serve christ sets. but you look around the rest of europe. you look around portugal. you are in ireland you are usually greeks. i'm in now france and it's very hard to see unemployment coming down in any of those countries linear couple of weeks or so from a from your perspective they will still take a few years before unemployment starts coming down in a significant number i hope not a few more years and partly depends in the cbd and apparently depends on whether the so called structural reforms really change things i think another piece of it is that. you don't want to wait a few years because young people are out of work which had been out of work for a while it's very hard to get back get people to want to hire them the skills aren't ready so waiting a few more years to become self filling in our
