He's found a C I O and CEO of Maine State Capital and the David Wanna talk a little about the US dollar now seems to have stabilized the gold price. Pulling back quite dramatically. Is the U. S dollar found a bottom now Wait, Where's it going from here? Well, you know, it's interesting during the time that Monetary policy we think would be typically pushing the dollar down. It continued to strengthen for sometime Then in July, the dollar had its worst month in a decade. And we've seen now the I think that the dollar probably has stabilized. I think it continues to be weak through here. Ah, weaker but probably has found the bottom for now. I'm curious is too how it then would impact your thinking on whether or not you want to be exposed to overseas markets, particularly in Asia. You could make a case that China is leading the world right now in an economic recovery. A lot of the data points that we have seen recently kind of support that notion. We're gonna get some very, very critical numbers at the end of the week, including retail sales. Do you want to be exposed right now? Tio two markets outside the U. S. Particularly maybe some A pack E m type markets. Absolutely. And we've been exposed Tio China for quite a while. You know when we consider China there, the one economy that actually did go through almost a pure V shaped recovery. And almost incredible When we look at the data is how how fast? Uh, they recovered on and went through that almost perfect be shaped recovery. More so than in any of the other economies, developed economies around the world and and Ian economies that are that are still struggling. Uh, so China has been a good place to offset Ah and really recovered while other economies were going through the lockdowns and suffering for the corona virus issues, But now when we look around the world and we look at the U. S at Forward price earnings multiple of about 22.3 very high by historical standards, the highest since 2001. We look whether we look abroad at Europe that is Maura Historical, preppy ratios, or E M. Where's P ratios in some countries in emerging markets below historical levels. There are opportunities and we think it makes sense, You know, with the dollar, weakening that it makes sense for us investors toe look abroad and diversify their portfolios into those opportunities abroad. When you considering China how much defector in the current U. S. China tension because we had no embassy closures of sanctions on individuals, but nothing really economically serious, like, say, a re ignition of the trade war. You prepared to look through all of that, until until it gets really, really. Yeah, we are. I mean, a lot of that, Uh, I don't want to say it's just savor rattling because it is important. It is important to factor into our models and what it could mean because the trade issues became riel, and they did. Did did impact how we invested, but you know, independent of that. We think there's still opportunity. So it was interesting. After the bell Tesla's announced Ah, five for one stock split. We've seen not only a rally in tests, Libit names like Amazon Apple.

"Life, mainly then Hong Kong past. Many of Hong Kong's freedoms are stifled by Beijing's new national security law lie and activist, 23 year old Agnes Chow were both arrested for quote, colluding with foreign powers. Punishable with life in prison on the laws written so vaguely pro democracy advocates fear can be used against any critics anywhere. That law will be exactly what they wanted to be when they want to be when they use it. I will also be is if our young college student from Hong Kong stands up and starts talking about how much they love, democracy and freedom. This is a widespread, overreaching law that has incredibly implications. Beijing says it's protecting Hong Kong from protesters last year turned violent. Last week, Chief Administrator Carrie Lam says because of Kobe, upcoming elections that pro democracy candidates were expected to win had to be postponed until next year. In response, the US imposed sanctions on lamb and 10 other Hong Kong officials and call the National Security Law a tool for CCP repression. Today. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs called that proof that the U. S. Was biased against China to make. What do Hodgins current U. S policy towards China is a strategic mistake. Based on the lack of truth and evidence, venting emotions and McCarthyist bias, and Beijing announced its own sanctions on six Republican lawmakers and five litres of NGOs Critical Beijing, including National Democratic Institute president Derek Mitchell. It's part parcel today's China where it's not just about what happens in China, but around the world that they want people to be quiet. But what's really happening, They don't care about law. They don't care about truth They don't care about inviting by the basic Law of Hong Kong Last year, Mitchell spoken Hong Kong and his co written three books about China, he argues under Shi Jin ping, the Chinese Communist Party is willing to try and silence domestic and international critics, no matter the consequence. Goingto use their power and that they will not accept anything that is remotely right Space of democracy based in Hong Kong, and keep going until they feel it is squashed entirely. It's very, very sad we're seeing are headlines in the daily basis in broad daylight on it doesn't stop in Hong Kong. We have to recognize that it can certainly moved to free people of Taiwan fear that Taiwan is next is the backdrop for the highest ranking US visit in four decades, Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Cesar gave a show of support, the president saying.

"In handcuffs and later led through his newspapers Newsroom with reporters live streaming his ordeal. Jimmy Lai is charged with collusion with foreign forces. The world's Patrick Quinn joins me now. So what did this media tycoon do to upset Beijing so much? Patrick? Yeah, Marco. I mean, this guy doesn't just merely dislike the Chinese Communist Party. He abhors them. Just he's this very rich tycoon who does not ever seem to be afraid of going to prison. Or even having his media empire taken away, And now it looks like that is happening. You know, he does come out and say things like this, which is from an interview this year with Fox News. Of the value of the West. The value of America We are actually fighting the same war your new Cold War. We are fighting, probably because we share the same values with you. So when you say you're fighting a Cold War and one American support that is a huge red line for China's Communist Party, and Jimmy Lie just says stuff like this all the time. So if Jimmy lives been criticizing China's government in Beijing for years, why arrest him now? You know, as we all can see the U. S and China are in what may be the beginnings of some sort of cold War over trade technology who controls territory in Asia. So many things, and Hong Kong has really been this flashpoint. You see US politicians like Nancy Pelosi and Ted Cruz. Cheering on. These protesters will in response to that. Over the weekend, the US put out sanctions against Hong Kong's top leader who is Carrie Lam, and that has provoked them to go after Jimmy Lai, or at least that's what it looks like. He's been this golden boy for certain US politicians. And then suddenly he gets swept away in retaliation. So police also arrested Agnes Joe, someone who conforms more with the activists we've seen in the streets for the past year in Hong Kong. Remind us who Agnes Chow is Patrick and what you represent to the central government in Beijing. Everybody in Hong Kong knows who Agnes Chow is. She was a teenage protester in 2014 for what was called the umbrella revolution. And since then she's now in her early twenties. She has become sort of this is a very young protest movement, Marco So a 23 year old can be an elder statesman and this in this movement and in a sense, that's what she has been. I just think it really sends a strong signal that no one is untouchable. So if you have Agnes Child being taken down Jimmy Live being taken down. The Chinese Communist Party knows it's going to create a huge fuss. They know that the American media is going to make a big deal out of this and they know that it can heighten tensions in this, you know. Call it What you want Cold War. We also saw today that China has sanctioned 11 Americans, including lawmakers. Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz. What's the thinking behind that The sanctions have gone after senators that are very active and cheering on the Hong Kong protesters, But they've also gone after the head of human rights, Watch anyone that the Chinese Communist Party views as an American agitator. Towards the Hong Kong protests, and so what you're seeing is more tit for tat sanctioning so the U. S sanctions Hong Kong's political leader, they sanction Ted Cruz and some other senators, and it keeps escalating and escalating with no end in sight. The world Southeast Asia correspondent Patrick Win Thanks for being with us. Thanks, Marco. You're listening to the world and you're listening to the world here on.

He told reporters that he would never surrender to Beijing. After the implementation ofthe National security law, no matter of my probes will spend in public library.

"Where does it leave the pro democracy movement in Hong Kong. Given that the likes of Joshua Wong Agnes Chow has pretty much, uh, cut ties with the political groups. Yeah, well, Joshua Wong and others of the de Macedo party resigned their top positions and then disbanded the party late yesterday after the imposition of this national security law. The indication is that they did not want to as the figureheads of the party possibly implicate others in the movement. So perhaps it will go more underground. The last Twitter post that I saw from Joshua Wong. Last night he recited a passage from the Bible from Psalms about walking through the valley, etcetera, etcetera, which is often times Used in eulogies. So obviously the pro democracy camp here is figuring out what they can do. Is it game over? I've asked pro democracy lawmakers and pro democracy activists like Emily Lau is this game over and they said No, it's not game over. That was before the law was implemented, but we didn't know that it was coming down the pike. Still, I think there's a lot of reassessment of strategy going forward right now. But this law is very firm. If you're going to violate any those laws on national security, the law of the land will come down hard on you. Right, Chief North Asia correspondent.

Democracy movement in hong kong saturday is five years since the chinese government decided against fully democratic elections in the territory today authorities in hong kong arrested dozens of pro-democracy activists among them them joshua wong and agnes chow. Here's chow speaking after she was released on bail. We can see very clearly that the regime and hong kong gaba it's trying to create a white terra to try to scare hong kong people not to participate in the social movement and in a democratic movement in the future you check but we hong kong people won't give up and don't be scared by these <hes> white tara and injustice the hong kong government it has denied permission for another large protests tomorrow wilson as hong kong attorney and founder of the progressive lawyers group. He doubts that arresting a few prominent activists is going to do much. I think that's quite <hes> doubtful amid because the protests now are quite a leaderless in the percents <hes> they don't depend on any prominent figures of they're not led by any well known organizations <hes> so if the government's plan is to cut off the heads of these these protests <hes> than this is extremely bad way to do it gives us a sense of joshua wong and agnes chow are in relation to these protests joshua wong <unk> agnes child. They were two of the prominent leaders in the two thousand fourteen protests <hes> the umbrella movement and they really came to prominence as leading figures in that protests and both of them have been active in the pro democracy camp since but in the current protests <hes> <hes> they're actually have not been any leading figures or you know needing organizations who are the forefront you know a lot of it is leader. Is you know done in small groups done in on forums and a messaging apps up so they're sort of <hes> inspirational or for spiritual kind of figures there and they're definitely well known but organizationally.

This was a protests around two months ago when protesters surrounded the police headquarters i <hes> and they have to report back to court on november. Eight is likely that it's going to be a procedural hearing only and the actual show trial if any will take place probably at least a year from now a lot of these protests these recent protests started over the proposed host extradition law that that hong kong chief executive carrie lam tried to introduce and they're now reports that she actually tried to withdraw rau- this extradition bill in the midst of these protests several weeks ago and that beijing rejected her request does that news change anything for the protesters out there sure so in terms of the protesters motivation or calculus i. I don't think it changes much what it does do though is actually confirm firm belief that this extradition bill was a very dangerous proposal in the first place <hes> because carrie lam argued dude that she would act as an effective gatekeeper behind any extradition requests coming from beijing but the latest news you're saying that she can't even withdraw at bill without their approval puts a lot of doubts on that initial denial the unrest that has rocked hong hong kong these protests..

India of to injure to, which is a good stuff for them. Another notable incident in that game. Yesterday. When the Australian opener David Warner was the latest to begin pretty lucky escape when the ball, hit the stumps. But the bales didn't come off. This is the fifth time that this has happened in this tournament and it's only been going for a week or so my microphone. Former England captain described it as ridiculous. On the radio said it's going to your malls and Aaron hit leg, stump. If you're not getting out you're getting bold, it's a concern something needs to be done madness. He called it madness. Tell you at infrastructure, if the organizers have anything to say about that later on today said Africa against the West Indies Africa came into the tournament ranked number three in the world. But they've lost their opening three games. They really need a win down in Hampshire today. Probably won't be uninterrupted. There's some rain around the top temperature in what we call flaming June here in England will be thirteen degrees. Kenyan bailing out of the sport. Thank you very much. Daytime business now we're going to talk trade negotiations must be great time to be a trade negotiator. Everybody wants you ever been so sexy. The UK's secretary of state for international trade, Liam Fox, has just signed an agreement in principle on trade with South Korea, the background to this. Course all the trade deals that will need to be done depending. How Brexit ends up Davis is here. What does it South Korean deal then? Well, it means that it's hoped that it can have some continuity, when the U K leaves the European Union deal includes keeping zero-rated tariffs on South Korean exports, such as auto parts and actually from Obidos themselves of the Brexit. Remember the UK cannot sign a formal agreement until it leaves the EU because it's still a member of the trading block and its rules and all the rest of it until then, so trade negotiators of doing all they can to ensure ensure smooth path. One. Does his UK international trade minister Liam Fox, put it means Britain leaves the European Union without a deal we get Clinton unity in the trading arrangements that we currently have? So businesses complained for both trade and investment with confidence if we do get a deal with European Union, what this means is, we have not a springboard to future trade agreement that could be more on bishops than the one that career currently has with the European Union. So for both of us. It's forward-looking ambitious and confident. Right. All about contradicting for South Korea. Well, same sort of thing, really the escalating trade war between the United States, and China has had some knock-on effects on trade in Asia as a whole. So it's nice for South Korea to get some sort of shirty in the bag as it were Britain is South Korea's second largest trading partner among the EU members and South Korea's exports to Britain reach about six point three billion dollars last year. The two already have a free trade agreement through the European Union, and this agreement will just see that continue here. Suzanne spears a partner at the law firm and Ellen and ovary this accord, a significant because it's the first agreement with Asia, one of these continuity agreements to ensure that the trade policies that are already in place for the UK by way of all of the amalgam of treaties that the UK has access to some forty treaties through its membership in the European Union. Those arrangements can continue in this one example, I think there have been about twelve other of these continuity agreements. But this is. The first one in Asia that Suzanne space from Ellen and over with the business Davis, many things to Newsday on the BBC World Service reminder of our top stories in the newsroom right now at engine caught has convicted six men for the rape and murder of an eight year old Muslim girl in Kashmir in a case that spot nationwide. Outrage and Hong Kong's leader. Carrie Lam as you've been hearing has defied mass protests and refused to scrap plans to Lao extraditions to mainland, China, also, of course, big news from Sudan, the second day of a national strike at the first day turned violent sadly security forces firing tear gas and live ammunition. Dispersing protesters setting up barricades in the capital. How to four people were killed, according to doctors aligned to the opposition movement. Campaigners have been calling for civil disobedience to make it as difficult as possible for the military council to govern. Sudan is comes out of the protesters were brutally dispersed from their sitting outside the military headquarters in hot. A week ago, the death toll since then stands at one hundred eighteen according to doctors government is admitted to sixty one deaths, but with so much on the streets of this month the end of the civilian revolution, which began with the fall of president, Amal share after thirty years in power. For more, I spoke to curb the head to see her women's rights organization in the horn of Africa began by asking what she made it the first day of the strike. I think it was extremely successful. I think it was it exceeded expectations of all of us in terms of its success and the flex in two at extensively is people are angry and thought extensively people are generating the ruling of the transitional military council has been in control of the country since April eleventh, the military council, clearly, and particularly perhaps head that the parents, reputable forces doesn't seem to have much intention of handing over power civilians, whatever they say so to what level g think, will the civil. Disobedience have to go if it's to exert the right amount of pressure on them from the protesters point of view was start was part of your questions, which it him attention roles. And I think that's very much a likely, you know, Sudanese people have rejected are ready support our forces from day one. They have rejected him. They, they're very full aware of the history as Jesuits and what they have been doing in four. And, you know, the current course Automic speaks to what type of force, they are bringing into Sudan, military institution, historically, that never happened in a way that Sudanese military was responsible of such massacres, and assassination of civilian. So there is an absolute rejection of him at the and his house and his organizations, which apparently they are somehow, you know, influencing the military institution at the moment in terms of the civil disobedience and strikes. It's come. Flex, and it's difficult to agree for how long it will last. But from what I see even if the civil disobedience and it in the coming few days, are we don't think that this is going to be the end of unrest, in Sudan, I think Sudanese people will always look for ways to express rejections transitional military council and to the ginger forces in control at the moment, unfortunately, we were very much left alone. Go in the level of the international. Support is very poor. That is reluctancy, and this is very, very scary in terms of for how long international image is going to wait for Sudan to be subjected to describe of Berkeley community, which is obviously quite divided. I mean Saudi Arabia United Arab Emirates pretty openly or otherwise, but pretty clear, they are supporting the transitional military council others, a cooling castle to hand over power to civilians two or three concretes that would you like to see foreign countries. Make to improve the situation incident, I think extreme pressure on Saudi Arabia is definitely important disppointed of time. It's very unfortunate as the Saudi government is too many strating, lack of understanding knowledge and awareness in an interesting Sudanese people willingness undeserved for civilian governments Saudi Arabians, they share historical relationship, and just so unfortunate in all level of the relation in relationship, and how soon is people, you know, which is millions of them are working Saudi Arabia at the moment, receiving the kingdom on the other hand when I'm talking about the reluctance of international community. I mean I it has been in for seen that this is going to be happening people. They anticipated that a crackdown is going to be happening in April matching hurston. They were issued warnings frequently in that the sitting area is a dangerous area, which is it means one thing that they would be a crackdown in having. Said that the level of solidarity in terms of in supporting civilians to attend. They're going quite legitimate. Call in, in, in having a civilian government based on rule of law, and democracy is not is not quite been supported yet. News analyst Hal curry, from the CEO women's rights organization..
