Than twenty seven hundred journal List and analyst this is Bloomberg a combination of protectionist economic policies a new Chinese initiatives are reshaping, the economic world for more on this regime Bloomberg's Tom Keene and Jonathan. Farrow spoke with Abby Joseph Cohen and advisory director and senior investment strategist at Goldman Sachs. I guess we've gotta talk about vanilla equity investment. How do you respond when you see the gloom articles they seem to peak Friday about seven, PM but. You've spent decades in cycles of doom and gloom are the doom and. Gloom articles, on a given Friday now. Different than they were other eras I think that we're seeing increased concern. Tom and it's appropriate in terms of where the United States in the world are heading in terms of Ideo political. Alliances and, also in terms of the trade picture we have taken for granted since the nineteen fifties at the United States would Dominate in. So many different areas we. Were by far the. Strongest economy the other, economies of Europe in Japan had been devastated by. The second World War and now we have real competition on the economic front. And, that comes from China and quite frankly they are playing a long game everybody focuses on how they're doing this, quarter this year they are making long-term investments not. Just in terms of? Their own economy but in terms, of their long-term trade and political relationships their, version of the Asian Development Bank in which they're providing significant funding for infrastructure in Asia and throughout the world is the equivalent of the Marshall plan. Which gave the United States an enormous advantage, in terms of global trade focused on Europe I in the fifties and sixties and so I think there are real. Concerns when I take a look at the, equity market per se I always start with valuation the valuation is okay if If inflation and interest rates do what we think, and most importantly earnings continue to pop as they seem to be doing and real GDP seemed so strong this quarter obviously equity investors are going to. Feel good however as I look. Out into two thousand nineteen I think we're going to be seeing slower growth for example SNP earnings this. Year up twenty percent next. Year six or seven. Percent John this is single digit. Abby this is and this is a, slowdown as well in GDP and what I worry about is that if, valuation is currently fair there's not much..
