Global news 24 hours a day on Erin on quick take by Bloomberg powered by more than 2700, journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries, By Mark Mills. This is Bloomberg. Kathleen, Do you Mark. Thank you so much. Now, let's get back to our conversation with Stephen Glass. He's portfolio manager at Pengana International Equities and Stephen You know, Doug was talking about Robin nomics, and it's something I've been looking at very closely as we get ready for a new prime minister. You mentioned the failures in a note You sent us on. And of course, he did Break the back of deflation. After the lost decade, you note in stock market doubled unemployment conduct a 2.2%. Inflation, you know? So what if it didn't get to 2%? The Fed can't get 22% D. C B can't get to do percent, But I like hearing your one focus on the need for fiscal policy to compliment mantra policy with Javi tried And this idea that we're somehow supporting a lot of unproductive countries around the world with aggressive stimulus on the monetary side. Here. Look, there's no doubt. I mean, in my opinion that all monetary policies really doing now is it's really just pushing up asset prices and allowing companies to survive on capital raise capital rather than earnings. And when you do that, you're not really getting. It's not really capitalism. You know, I think it's quite ironic that we seem to be reverting to a former off. I don't want to say communism search, especially socialism because This is not our capitalism work and there are a lot of companies out there just surviving on basically capital raised very cheaply and this is not how you increase productivity and you know that the world needs. Unfortunately, it's not something that any of us want, but we need a bit of pain to clear this out. To allow productivity. Two people have to reschedule to only the most productive turns to survive, and therefore, that will help on global GDP. But you know, more telling is just what's happening here. You know, not many people own assets. And I said prices go up and its wages on keeping up. What that's doing is making the rich and the rich could survive even greater and this fuel in a lot of social unrest around the world. And so we see it as a huge social issue on DH. You know, something's got to give eventually. But you know, the thing is still ways to make money so we can you know it's easy, anyone Down and just point out all the risk in the world. But we're actually make money and from the way you can do it is you can invest in discount retailers around the world. So dollar General dollar tree Ali Ali outlets. There's a great idea in Israel at the moment called Max Management. That is that is another discovery Tyler and in essence, what I'm saying is he's going to get this modification of consumers want to probably invest in luxury brands. LVMH comes to mind and also an investment discount retailers..
