"Is finally recognizing there's something that we've been talking about for a long time. Don't pick growth or value. Or don't pick the market. You know the economy opening or back on shutdown, You have to have a collection of both. That was a Mileti. There was Fargo Asset Management ahead of acted strategy from New York City this morning. Good morning. Tom Kean. Lisa Bravas. Jonathan Farrow. We should bring the commercial break edition of this program should live years terrible after after nine or 10 PM gets the release of something to bed or something like that. It could accept 26 on the S and P advances. 6/10 of 1%. Yields in a better basis point at 1 33 43 crude at 9/10 of 1% to $70.32 Goldman at this morning, Jeff Currie of government Thompson Commodities to Sir John Quote, growing scarcity. Well as you're growing scarcity, and the answer is you look at the litmus paper of the system, and it's not folks like currency and it's not even I'm sorry. Good morning. Chicago. It is London and the London Metal Exchange and Bloomberg's iconic original commodity screen. El Amigo says it all and John, you know we're making jokes about, But I'm sorry, Riddick A. Gupta and John Farrow destined to say l u Mini, um and not apologize about three K. On the London Metal Exchange. There it is, so we get to Francisco this year. Many, um, the international standard at a London Francisco blood Bank of America, head of global commodities and derivatives research. Good to catch up, Francisco. Let's just start with what's going on with Aluminum. Allah Medium three K. What's happening is this all supply scarcity? Uh, in the Jonathan their supply scarcity on a couple different fronts we've had, of course, uh, I couldn't tie in Guinea, which is created some anxiety around box sites of wise book Side is the ingredient into alumina, which in turn as the key ingredient into aluminum or aluminium. Um so, uh, So we had shortages there because the cool But then, more importantly, China has been curbing aluminum supplies now for most of the mostly year because They're trying to rein in power generation become cleaner and remember, it's been a low rainfall year in China is for the reasons they've been trying to crack down on Bitcoin tooth, So thermal generation is very strong, but it's mostly again filling the gap for that lack of hydropower. So so if you look at aluminium production year today in China's come flat as a pancake The mass kept growing. We have all this liquidity in the system, and that's what pushing prices higher. Your Francisco I saw the London Metals Index of Bloomberg indexes as well show medals as a group doing better. We know the Bloomberg Commodity Index is done better as well. Does it signal a commodities breakout? Can you call a bull market in commodities? Well, I mean, you know, Tom, we've had a bit of a bull market already for a while since since we hit the lost back in April last year, so we remain constructive. Here. We think prices are more is most Morris will keep going higher. But again, it depends on where you look at, remember Ira or has been coming down very hard since violence started exporting More volumes, but then oil. On the other hand, it's kind of sit there. It's a bit of a boiling frog waiting for the winter and not sure gas, of course, is ripping around the world and also dragging out us mad gas with it. So it depends where you look at. But in broad terms of commodities are raised from because we have a little liquid in the system. We are growing. We have supply constraints. We have low inventories. It's kind of a perfect cocktail for Maurice to keep breaking higher. And when you talk about oil and the cold winter, there was a note that I believe your team put out that you do see the potential for $100 per barrel oil in the United States and elsewhere based on what supplies are doing. Just want to bring you these headlines. OPEC sees stronger demand for its crew this year and next at the same time. Non OPEC output is supposed to be down and this really directly speaks to the shale patch. What's the tipping point at which point we start to see supplies go up to meet the demand and regulate. Well, so so I think I think right now we have a very short window into the winter. We're all still, uh, where you flip flops and shorts and in the Northern Hemisphere, But that's not changed very quickly. Within a month or two. It's gonna get cold. Very cold. I think natural gas is going to be very strong. And if it breaks out and remember, we already trading over $20 per mmbtu, which is 100 and $20 a barrel for the moment in oil. Um and we go another 10 bucks higher on them for MBT you which would put us at $180? To The barrel foot equivalent. I think that would drag up the entire oil sector because people will look for cheaper sources of of, um of BTUs of calorific value for for heating and for power generation. We see a very strong bunker fuel marketing Singapore already because of the recent so.

"You call this a profound mistake, and it shouldn't happen. And you know, it will descend into violence and it will have to go back. I've been hearing that for, you know, Gosh, what almost 20 years? Um and maybe that's true. I watched, you know, Look, my history is a little limited here. I was too young to know this at the time, but I watched the movie Charlie Wilson's war and It was the first time that I've never really understood. The first time that we went into Afghanistan, in an essence sort of weaponized them to a degree handed the munitions and money and things like that in our attempt to help with the Russians at that time, and then that ended up I guess maybe blowing up in our face a little bit. Have I got that about right? And you could that could that be similar to what we're seeing unfold again. Historically, Chris, here's work took on that. Look, I happened because I was in the White House and actually helped drive policy about after 20 years. We're getting out of Afghanistan. What we did is here's what's different that a little bit subtle, but it's really Will make a lot of sense when I explain it when we stand up the withdrawal plan, which was April last year, so we gave them basically year to figure this out. We had certain gates they would have to go through until we would do our troops. And these gates were negotiations with the, uh, the Chinese government that the current Afghan government the cessation of violence that was going on and remember when we made this agreement with the Taliban. Well over a year ago. There has been no Americans killed by Taliban since we made those agreements, and there are certain gates you would go through and if they didn't make those gates and we wouldn't keep the withdrawal going So what happened is we said Okay, 21, mate. I'm sorry. One May was when the last gate was going to be reached, and we're 2500 troops in place until that time and that was in negotiations between the current Afghan government and the Taliban. Remember Alabama or Afghan? There's a passion tribe, the largest ethnic group with him, Afghanistan, followed by the two geeks, and and so it's their country and the real invaders were after 20 years. We said Okay, We shouldn't be involved in nation building and I think by the administration just blew the gate. They didn't really care. And they just said unilateral withdrawal. We never stand there. We went there. There were certain games to have to go now. I happen to believe Chris. It was time to us to leave that stand primarily because intellectually we were unable to give it to face our greatest enemy right, which happens to be the Chinese and we were stuck in place there. With our intelligence. Yeah. What? Thinking that the myth it was the critical component of our national security and it shouldn't be. It should be China and we were not able to China, so I think there's a lot of things out there going on in Afghanistan. Lot of it's because they Follow. What we We lived in a pretty good plan the gates to go through to make sure there was a good withdraw going forward. And now with the Taliban, you know, let's be honest about it the way they're fighting right now. Why would they go back to the negotiating table? They're actually win it. So do you see? A, um I mean, I guess the conventional wisdom was the Taliban kind of created a theater or an atmosphere and environment for a bin laden type and and those that would conspire against the United States. Do you see that continuing or do you see them greatly weakened something that will have to deal with in another few decades or where do you see that going? We contain that. Yes, that's a great question was one thing that President Trump did with is really different than other. Keep executives we've had in the White House is he would pick on him. Call people. He personally called Mullah Berardo for Arthur was the chief associated the Taliban. We actually got a police from Pakistan. Egypt, uh Because we talked to Prime Minister Khan in Pakistan. And we said Okay, we're gonna get you out of jail. You're going to do the negotiations and we're going to have very frank discussions. And the president talked a broader than talk together and he talked a lot of others. The ship. Don't screw around with it. You know you were make sure you don't work with Al Qaeda. We said you have to break all links with either going forward. They agreed to that and to the Oval Office. When those discussions were made, and Alexandra through translations, how you wonder what translations actually said. But the president, meaning Trump was very third room that you had to break these. These little Al Qaeda and the Taliban just want to be left alone. But I don't think you know that when they we have not had any attempt on our soil from the Taliban was out of Al Qaeda. We went and finish them off. And then we killed bin Laden and I think you know, they just kind of now. They're a country that's kind of more left alone. Now. I don't agree with their policies and how they treat people. But I think we're going to be okay. By getting out of there. I don't think you can see it Bears, um, come out of that. And in the near term at all. Final question. Um, General Kellogg on China. I've seen a couple of reports on the readiness of our navy. Um, you mentioned that we were spread so thin. I think President Trump shared that point of view. And it was really time to marshal our resources and and kind of take stock of our readiness and to deal with something that is as strong and on the common if you will, as China. Um, are we ready? I mean, you hate to, you know, talk about dark scenarios, but I guess that's your job, And that's the kind of thing you've done all your career. Um China is aggressive right there. They're very highly weaponized and militarized and Uh, they're showing no signs of waning. So are we Are we ready for them for one of a better term or not? Yeah, That's Chris. That's a great question, because a report just came out. I think yesterday and was a report on the fighting culture in the United States Navy and talking about their surface fleet primarily, and and right Now, I would say there's nobody else in the world that can fly like the United States military can fight what it wants to, but there are some things that are happening that are really quite bothers him. And I think there's an insufficient leadership focused on war fighting out there and we'll be. We've something very cold or oriented and I think that's a huge, huge mistake. The military should understand there, obviously determined it turns fails..

"The Fed has been under shooting its target very often over the last decade on inflation, So if inflation ran at 3% or 4% for some modest period, I don't think that the problem in the long run we that you would get overheating if if if that was allowed to continue, But I think the Fed Is doing the right thing by watching and waiting and saying, You know, we don't know the extent to which this is a real overheating the economy versus the supply chain effects and that sort of thing on dwell wage growth. Has the numbers look good? I think we the upside of hot labor market eyes is the wage growth that you get out of that. But I don't think you want the Fed to start cutting that off by raising interest rates, which is the thing that would have to do if they were deciding ability to fight inflation right now, so I think it's I think it's something to watch. Um, but the overall the inflation number, I think is not going to be astoundingly high for this year. Just going to have a few categories of goods. They have weird things going on with him. There's a kind of home construction happening that's really pushed up lumber prices. Building a race that garden outside my house. I paid a fortune for lumber for that. But that's you know, Lumber is not a huge fraction of the economy, and most most things that people are paying for are going to have fairly normal prices in the coming year. You know this might sound like an obvious thing to stay. But I just think one of the problems we've been facing during the course of the past year is that we've never seen a challenge quite like this one before, and it's made it really tough to come up with right policy solutions. Yeah. I mean, it's such a weird economic crisis. I mean, in the normal recession, home prices go down on a normal recession, household balance sheets become impaired and look worse. And yet we managed to have this I mean, brief recession. I think it probably gonna turn out the recession was only two months long February at the April last year was a very steep recession. But we had this economic crisis in which household balance sheets improved. Andre in which home prices went up, and so if people are going to come out, there's a reason this recovery is so much faster than the recovery from the 2009 financial crisis. We don't have Challenge. We had last time where we had persistently slow job growth and weak wage growth for most of the decade. Those economic fundamentals are really strong. And so the questions you have to ask are you know what we're going to end up with too much inflation? What do we do about situation where companies can't find enough workers and businesses can't find enough materials in Thies air? Good problem to have You still need to address them, But they signal of fundamental strength that underlies in the economy. We have strong consumer demand. That means that there are good opportunities for business investment so long as you could lay your hands on the capital and the right physical goods, So hopefully the people address those properly over next year. Joining me now is columnist for Business Insider Josh Barrow, and we're talking about the state of the economy. So Josh, do you see any sectors within the economy that will likely see a more fundamental change in how they operate in two Business as a result of the pandemic changes that you think you're here to stay? Yeah. I mean, my general take on the extent to which the pandemic would change things forever was that a people overestimated the extent to which things would change forever. But mostly the changes that persists will be trends that we're already on. Going on. That just gets accelerated by I think the trend toward virtual work. I think that's real. I don't think that we're gonna have mass work from home with level that we've had it in the last year, But I think there could be for example of permanent decline of business travel. I think that a lot of company to figure it out. Ah, lot of these meetings we have people flying for really worked. Okay to do those on zoom. On day. So if you have that that obviously affect the hotel industry in the airline industry, and they have to figure out what to do with the except capacity they have. And so and one thing is we have these strong household balance sheets. Maybe we can have a renaissance with sort of a gold nature tourism. Um, but that means that airlines might do things like take out some of the business class seats on their long haul aircraft put in coach class seats. Is there persistently going to have more tourists and fewer business travelers on their planes s So I think that there are there are businesses that are impacted by that. I mean, I live in New York City. If you have persistently a lot of workers who are only gonna come into the office three days a week instead of five. And maybe Midtown can't support of many restaurants. So that did before the pandemic, so they're going to be micro shift like that. But overall, those those those adjustments are not going to be a huge fraction of the economy and the foot site is If we figured out how to do a bunch of things more productively than we know how to do before then that means that we can have faster overall growth and higher standard of living. And I think that the A picture of that productivity hasn't fully emerged because cos the way they've shifted their operations. The pandemic. They've done some things where they've changed. I figured out something that was that they actually cheaper or more efficient than they were doing before..

We didn't have the exact change and they didn't have the coins to make chain. So they rounded down, we got a small discount. This week I was going through the McDonald's drive through, and there was a sign that said due to treasury shortage of coins, use credit or debit cards. Round up to the nearest dollar, donate the different to Ronald McDonald house charities or use exact change on cash transactions. There is a coin shortage in the US right now.

The Washington Post reports that since then t mobile exacts have spent many nights in President Trump's Washington DC hotel post business reporter Jonathan O'Connell is on the story. He spoke with komo's Rick van Cise Jonathan how many nights are we talking about it? And why is the significant? Well, the second part, I it significant because obviously T mobile and sprint had proposes deal for both companies it requires settle approval and the day that the companies announced it in April last year. The next night people began staying at for the president's hotel, and what we know which is probably incomplete because we're working off of an incomplete records the hotel. We know that so far executives, including John ledger. The CEO has stayed at least fifty two nights at the president's hotels and the assumption is to further I guess, you might say become favorable to the Trump administration. But do we know if the president has even been aware of those hotel stays, we do not know? And actually, that's a great point because you know, one is alleging here that T mobile is, you know, trying to put their finger on the Leverett here or curry some saver. You know, that strategy only works if somehow the ministration officials or the president even aware of this. And we don't know if he is or is not which is probably what comes next in terms of people asking for for more information. We're talking with Jonathan McConnell with the Washington Post Jonathan this is all happening as congress puts a magnifying glass on the proposed merger here. Right. So since we first reported on this earlier this year, you know, just this week Senator Warren from us juice, and obviously from Seattle Representative who's on the house committee on financial issues or dish area. Excuse me. They both are started asking questions both to the president's company, the Trump organization and to t mobile executives about how these hotel bookings happened. And specifically if members of the Trump administration were made aware of them or were coordinated them in some way, and we don't have answers yet in your reporting. Have you had a chance to hear from t mobile? What do they have to say? Well, you don't actually spoke with Mr. ledger. The CEO. Of people at the hotel a few weeks ago. And you know, I think he was a little surprised us have become a big surprise. Anyway, this would become a big issue. He said he was very comfortable the hotel, and it is he said, it was convenient to the department of Justice, which it is it is it is blocks away from the department of Justice. So, you know, his his reasoning is it's a nice hotel. He's comfortable there and a big deal. And I actually.
