"With today's newspapers joining me down the line is a political journalist and author Terry Steve good morning Terry. Good morning. It was a big day for politics and money in the United Kingdom yesterday. The Chancellor Rishi sunak delivered a budget that not only one is entirely sure benefits or harms the UK economy. There are just a hundred dozens of photographs of him and Boris Johnson clinking glasses with beer. Yes, that's right. I mean, that is the sort of photo opportunity that you often expect to get the morning after the budget. But you know, going to a brewery when you've just organized a budget, it's always a little bit of a hostage to fortune. Obviously what they were trying to play up was their new system for duty on alcohol. But what the headlines seem to be picking up is the amount of money that the government is planning to spend and how they are eventually going to pay for it all. So if you look at The Daily Telegraph, their headline, there is he big spenders. Again, over that picture of the prime minister and the Chancellor at I think a small brewery. And the times it's headline is soon act spending spree and also, again, The Guardian saying it's post COVID plan spend now cut taxes later. And when you look into the coverage and when people have gone through the numbers, really, what people are worried about is the burden of taxation and how this is going to be paid for over time. So for instance, the times picks up that the office for budget responsibility said that the overall tax burden in the UK would be at its highest level since Clement atlee's post war government of 1945 to 51 on spending at its highest level since the 1970s. So I think there is although the Chancellor said his long-term ambition is to cut taxes before the election and saying, you know, there's a moral case for a smaller state. The reality of what he's doing is very different from that. Of the many of the newspapers who ordinarily would be very supportive of a conservative government budget are actually getting their knives out for this one. And you mentioned the telegraph. The fact is that the institute for fiscal studies has been quoted as saying that actually the wages that we will be earning real wages will be lower by 2026 than they were in 2008 and yet there are all these headlines that you mentioned know about how much the British citizens going to be taxed. Yes, I mean, there is really interesting in that, as you say, sort of conservative leaning paper, particularly like The Daily Telegraph, which you generally expect to be supportive of a conservative budget. I mean, some of their comment pieces they're saying, you know, this is just like the labor government of Gordon Brown. This is going to lead to disaster and so forth. And they are leading their articles. They Britain faces a double squeeze on living standards as two decades of stagnating wages and spiraling inflation conspire against household finances. So they're talking about, as you say, the institute for fiscal studies, which is a think tank which every year kind of goes through the fine print and the spreadsheets of the budget. And they are pointing out that disposable incomes are going to grow by just by .8% per year over 5 years, which they say is well below the historical average. And they are warning about the risks of inflation and the fact that higher taxes higher inflation just mean that money is going to go less fast. So it's really quite a critical reception from papers that you would normally expect to be generally sympathetic. Let's move back to the rumbling indigestion. This is a constant problem that we have with Brexit. Fishing rights seem to be the thing that stymied many of the areas of progress in the Brexit negotiations last year. And from what we're seeing now in threats that are being thrown left right and center in the last 24 hours, the French and the British are still not happy with the Brexit arrangements that were drawn up. And we now have fishermen fishermen fishermen, fishing boats, subject to find. Yes, there seems to be an escalating dispute. I mean, this is a dispute that's being going on for some time. As you say, the French headline here in le figaro just doesn't says Brexit to fishing British fitting boats have been stopped by maritime police so much of what we call them in the bay of the seine, and they're saying that France in conflict with Britain on the subject of fishing licenses after Brexit has announced on Wednesday, some sort of retaliation measures. So overnight or yesterday, two English fishing boats have been stopped by French maritime police. One of them was told that it didn't have the correct license to fish and it has been sent off to lava for judicial proceedings and the French fishing minister is being quite forthright about this and saying, well, they haven't got the right, the right licenses, they should not be fishing in the waters. But if you look at The Guardian, it has more the UK's point of view on this dispute. And they are saying that Britain has now threatening retaliation measures a dramatic response from Downing Street. They said, the UK government would retaliate over what was described as a potential breach of international law saying France's threats are disappointing and disproportionate, not what we would expect. And this comes after France has said it's going to look at sanctions because it's in France is not getting the fishing licenses that they want to have. So fishing is always a touchy issue and it always leads to these sorts of skirmishes is probably too strong a word. But this does seem to be escalating at the moment, particularly in the waters around the Channel Islands in Jersey. Let's move to an interesting debate or it's an interesting encounter between Denmark and Germany when it comes to COVID restrictions. Yes, this is right. So this is a big article in the frankfurter alga minor paper, which titles the next wave in the north. And there seems to be an interesting briefing here by the Danish queen who was briefing some German journalists, queen Margaret migrated the second is planning a trip to Germany in the middle of November, and she invited a handful of German journalists to conversation at her residence in Copenhagen, which was supposed to be just briefing about the state visit that she was going to do. But they asked a few questions about coronavirus and the difference in restrictions between Germany and Denmark. And she says, the queen was very sort of diplomatic and she said that she was optimistic about the state of things in Denmark and she had we think we're sort of over the hill here. Let's hope that this is true. But the reporters are really playing up the difference between restrictions in Denmark where most restrictions have now been lifted and the situation in Germany where obviously people are still largely wearing masks and where there are still quite a few restrictions. And this article points out that despite the lifting of restrictions in Denmark, the pandemic is not necessarily over, and they are saying that the number of infections in Germany has been Denmark sorry has been rising and in the last few days the curve has been getting ever steeper. So German papers are questioning whether this situation in Denmark is sustainable. But the response from the Danish health minister Magnus heineke is saying that we've learned a lot about the pandemic in the last year and a half, they have a super weapon with vaccination, but they are observing the situation very carefully to see whether it's getting worse. Terry, sassy. Thank you so much for joining us on the global list. Here with monocle 24..

"And it sort of negates wanted the negatives as to why drivers were lupton's to come to the uk previously and wanted to go race On on gordon because some drivers wanted to do more european circuits so in this way they get the balance of still doing good tracks which teach drivers lot of by racing at olden park and brands. gp and even knock hill. Forget i mean. I raised three. And you know i. I learned a lot from driving it on because you have to. You have to learn to underdrive the car and underdog the front. Dan realize how you commit to the cubs and things like that and actually when you go driving there. It prepares you quite well when you go to sell kits like monaco or circuits like macau because you know the narrow and and the caused moving around in an unusual way so i think actually drive learn a lot from driving it the rangers circuit you have in the uk and the different weather going winter testing. Olen park yeah is not particularly appealing to the brazilian kid who's come over from sao paulo however the drivers who have got the motivation drive to succeed in f- one will stick it out and this is the benefit for me right. I've been through this process recently. And you know the fact that i'm the youngest board member at msu uk allows me this perspective. Where i can say look. I came from india and i went and stood the paddock and pembrey and hugged the deal. Because my hands were to call the drive the car but ultimately it's good prep for what the rest of your career throws at you coming back to it. I think the the onset on the car situation was that it gives it gives a multiple opportunities for the teams warriors. Yeah no definitely as you say. At the end of day. Bruce jeff wars all about being a learning category isn't it so many different opportunities that drivers can have whether the benefits have not here all the benefits of of spar two very different circuits. They've now those those options open to them. As we've talked about it it is also the the end of an era in the sense of fort. Bain major batter of uk motor sport. They've been around sporting single seaters back since the late nineteen sixties. When former ford was created and steph this is sort of defining moment it is an end of an era and they tributed so much to the sport over the years. And it's important to remember that at this point. Yes definitely as you say is is a you know they've been around for decades and you know launched the craze so many drivers up the single path to foam the will you know in this from the seventies basically to the end of the nineties fulmer fold in. The uk was probably the place to come for the drivers over time. You know having said that the times change as recruiting said you know folds world for the chance to carry on in some capacity Declined is a shy minute. Copy you know of a state you just how much they've helped drive But you know things things may It's important that you know we're not stuck in the past to some degree you know we do move with the times and you know we do could ways that we can precincts volume drivers coming a pincer single season. Hopefully you know on former self chef for is learning environment and one of the things that has said on. Several occasions is about wanting to make the best f. o. championship in in the world and in in terms of your perspective. What do you think needs to be done. What is the key to allowing that to be the case moving forward various metrics by which you measure that ultimately for me. What we have to do is create a championship which is able to give drivers the opportunity to climb up the ladder and be competitive in the same way that british f three was the place to come to. You know back in the day and if you look at the current formula one grade the grade of the last four or five years you'd look at how many drivers have come through racing in some form of formula in the uk versus. Let's say fifteen years ago it's much less go pretty much. Everybody came through here so former three is now willing to really establish the championship. You never got to the place. That and i don't think we should be looking at into glasses. But to hughes point will we can do is is highlight the fact that actually racing the uk. You've you good teams. you don't have to just be with prima or van assault to winning is not just want to teams. You can go with as we've seen this year in a full annan. A gb three five six seven teams. You can go with and and still compete to be on the podium in and win races. So you're not you know first of all as a driver you're under less pressure to try and get that big budget deal with the top team straightaway. I think we got a good good solid base of teams of great tracks as highlighted before. I think they've got a great range of clients. Range weather conditions delano. I think you know running on the tokyo. brings pressure. You know the you you learn to cope with the pressure racing from the crowds if the media life television which you don't have when you're racing italian championship thinks and one of the key things that we have really talked a lot about with the teams and you know i should highlight that one of the first things i did was with Ms uk to commission an independent report review across the full landscape in europe and Some independent engineers to go out and speak to all teams in europe and also in uk and draws a picture and one big issue that seemed to come up again again from drivers actually and driver. Managers was discrepancies in terms of engine. Performance In the italian and german championships. You know the the teams are talking about buying fifteen twenty engines. Aw dining them and choosing the best five for every race weekend. There's a huge amount of cost being spending into making show that they've all they've all got power unit that is able to deliver the performance performances. Everybody else and we looked at it. And and you know Spoke to all the teams in the uk and asked their opinion on what we can do because that becomes a a us for us right if we can create a championship in the uk which is creating more equal opportunity to be competitive than the championships. That's a usb for drivers and driver managers to come here and so we The teams hill highlight the fact that neil brown engineering of the last three years have done a great job with the ford engine And roger atlee and people got to create this The system of equivalency basically the the engines are equalized twice a year. They look at the data every weekend. And make sure that everyone stays within a very tight tolerances performance. And you don't really have these situations here in the uk championship where you have one of do 'cause which have significantly more power than the others which you know seems to be the case. Based on the information. I heard from drivers in driver managers and teams in fact in the championship. So we again putting systems in place for next year where ultra-technical in italy we'll be working with a uk bob now You know to make sure that aid. The pool of engines are here So logistically easier for the teams with brexit. And things like that. We want everything to be based in the uk and to welcome equalization so You know. I think this between the building blocks of good teams. Good drags you know. High-profile package and equalized you know performance. Full very strong. Usp's there for why drivers should be convenient hill in the in the championship. And i think finally you have to recognize that you know seven hundred ten formula one teams ended academies of based here in the uk. And that's the end of the benefit of always people like david and hugh and myself who've worked in f one is. We've only gone out there and engage with all of the teams and said look including people at ferrari by the way who on here and explained to them. These are uplands. Is the championship putting together. You know we'd like you to start placing drivers here in the uk again and stop looking at You know placing a young driver programs. Back into the uk championships. It made you know probably won't happen in two thousand twenty two because we need to reestablish and get a baseline left to set the new base knife of the championship. But now tonight it'll be great to have the red bull drivers mercedes dry but doesn't the rano juniors and people like that coming to celebrating the uk again which they haven't been doing for years yes absolutely and that's obviously one of the real targets moving forward isn't it to get create those links once again with the championship.

"But I think that this obsession that we have to raise the inflation rate 22% when I can find no serious work that stays unless you have a collapse in price level like we had in the Great Depression, running an inflation rate that's half a percent or so lower on average than 2% is a bad thing, and that we have to elevate the inflation rate. I find that a curious and It's somewhat misplaced Obsession, and John Ed goes to the heart of your work over all these decades. Is there any proof that the central banking quote unquote catch up with elevated inflation? Well, you know, I was tracking Tio Charles Plosser. You obviously know him a former federal zone, a show the other day. On the show the other day, and I chatted to him after your show. Um and he made the point Disappointed I create with that if you haven't been able to hit And inflation target and you keep on saying that that's what you want to accomplish. Then you are in danger of undermining your credibility when it perhaps comes to other important things, I think tremendously. Tremendously important point because if there's no economic damage being done by an inflation rates of 1.5% in fact, there may be economic benefits. I don't know that Any if you tap a personal on the streets, socially distance somewhere in mass, and awesome is the inflation rate too low for you. I don't know many people would say, Oh, yes, it's too low. I'd liketo have my the purchasing power of Lee. Dollars in my pocket eroded more quickly. I don't know anyone who would do that. And yet there is. This is academic view that the Fed that somehow the economy performed better a 2% inflation rate over time that I don't want a 1.5% inflation rate son hold on here because the idea, especially as United States adds more and more debt on his companies at more and more debt. The whole theory is that we could inflate away thes debt loads that basically the rate of Elation will make money cheaper, so it'll be easier to pay back this debt. What are the consequences? If that doesn't happen? How much do taxes have to go up? Especially if we don't see growth pick up at a faster speed that it is now. But you will not find that theory smiles at the Fed. You will not find people of the Fed who say the reason we wanted higher inflation rate is to inflate away the debt because over time, what do we get? We get the fissure equation from Irving Fisher. We get higher inflation expectations and that will push up interest rates and that's something the Fed would resist. So the Fed would then have to buy more more debt through Q E. And that has the potential to be a dangerous viral. So not the Fed thinks the economy work better if people believe the inflation rates going to be 2%. The funny thing is our studies that show it was a very, very comprehensive study, 26,000 people responded to the study. 40% of them thought that the inflation rate was 10% or higher. The public in general don't really understand the nuances of inflation. I'm certainly not the measurement nuances between a one or 1.5% inflation rates in a two per cent. Johnny got time for one more question. We're seeing an unraveling in the real yield. The 10 year tips just hit a new low. Negative 1.6 folks. The 30 year bond 1.19 handle right now, do you have in your mind what the Fed does. If we get a gamma, we get a convict city. We get an acceleration. And the decline of the real yield. Well, I explained that in a note that way put out on Friday, which and it goes back to the Fisher equation, which is the Fed is trying to repress through zero interest rate policy in Q E. The nominal yield, and it's doing that quite successfully 52 basis points that they They're trying to get people to believe in a higher inflation rate on people are believing in a higher inflation and so inflation expectations are moving up inflation breaking Mr Wolfinger on the Fed. Can't repress that They want that to go higher So they're left with the really yield, which is the residual, which have to be forced negative, so I don't believe really yield of negative 1% is somehow truly a growth reading for the outlook for the US over the next 10 years. It is a residual from a combination of interest rate repression on the nominal yield on rising inflation expectations, which is also an active fed. Policy. Just what you just heard. They're from Mr Riding is definitive riding. And this is so important. John is the is the real yield the residual of the function, Or does it initiate the function? John that is the arch debate of modern economics from riding. Bring Capital jump, Tessa to catch at least Tom. This extends to having fishes work on wages as well. Remember, his work would always talk about nominal wage growth was more important than really Yes for people. That's really what your weight is goes up in nominal terms is a much more real experience for you. But when it goes up, so so, so important, folks, it is seared in the mind of the United Kingdom. When you hear me talk about Clement Atlee Deflation John. This was the collapse of the wage in the United Kingdom in some really, really tough times that's not envisioned for the United States in 2020 But it is a legacy of fear. That's out there. The drugs policy. It's not. But I think something else you'll mention as well. Tell him it's really important, just the monopoly that certain ideas have in academia and in central banking right now. I'm one of them is the higher inflation is good and disinflation is bad, And I think if there's any criticism of the central banks of the moment, Tom it's just that we don't have alternative opinions. There's a lot of group thing, and I thought it was really refreshing to have Charlie Hustle on the program last week, you said you remember the days of the old Fed just 10 years ago or so when we had the likes of Richard Fisher and Charlie Plaza, giving the alternative view. Constantly every single FOMC meeting. I think that's healthy and it's absent of the moment. It's very important. But with the force majeure, almost jump conditions we've got in GDP aggregate demand.

Buy Your Mom a Spade: Seed Sales Swell under Stay-Home Order
"From wonder. I'm David Brown. And this is business wars daily on this field. Good Friday may eighth as most of you surely have remembered. Sunday is mother's Day. And what a strange mother's Day. It will be two with most of US still at home. The typical celebratory restaurant brunches off the table that so many of us are away from her mom. This weekend seems to be spurring many to spend more money celebrating her however the National Retail Federation. The in our F- says we plan to spend more on this mother's Day than ever before about two hundred and five dollars per person. That's up eight dollars or so from last year in two thousand nineteen was a record year but without those champagne. Brunches available. Just how will we be spending that money among the top gift choices? This year are housewares and gardening tools. We're predicted to spend twenty one percent more on kitchen appliances spades and rakes than we did last year or almost twelve billion dollars. The in our F says in case you hadn't noticed there's a gardening boom happening not just in America but around the world. People are planting more than ever in March alone. Us seed company W Atlee burpee and company sold more seeds than at any other time since its founding in eighteen seventy six. That's what Burpee Chairman. George Ball told the new service Reuters customers fearing pretty shortages are growing their own fruits and vegetables. They're also teasing those tomatoes and cucumbers out of the ground in order to be more self reliant to save money and to avoid the hazards of grocery stores. The desire to garden has blossomed to such a degree that gardeners Singapore are growing produce on rooftops. Russians are escaping cities to isolating countryside cottages and growing vegetable gardens there and Brits without any land of their own or even growing potatoes in garbage bags guy barter chief horticulturalist at Britain's Royal Horticultural Society told Reuters. But of course the garden boom isn't solely caused by people worried about having home grown. Kale on their plates come summer. It's also a new hobby for millions a pastime that takes away from our ever present screens and fills the time we want spent in the office at social gatherings in watching sports as Jennifer Atkinson writes in the online publication Echo Watch gardens are a reminder that there are limits to what can be done without physical presence as with handshakes and hugs one cannot garden through a screen which may be one reason why gardening tools along with plants and seeds of course are so popular. This mother's Day we can send them to mom or plant flowers and trees in our mother's honor in our yards viewable by video or in hers from a safe distance. But before you go thinking Kovic was the best thing to happen to gardening since Miracle Grow. Analysts are quick to point out the gardening. Explosion didn't actually start this year. In fact the industry reached an all time high in two thousand eighteen with US sales topping forty eight billion dollars according to the firm garden research but the corona virus is certainly continuing that expansion fact the surges stressing seed sellers local and regional supplies around the country reported such high demand that some like canada-based stokes seeds and young's seed company in Randolph. Wisconsin stopped taking orders for at least a few weeks. Young's usually sells one hundred thousand seeds a year but this year by April the company had already sold two hundred thousand according to the local NBC. Affiliate the we're taking in gardening has also proved burpee. George Ball wrong according to its corporate history. The privately held burpee has been the world's largest seed company since the eighteen nineties. But it hit hard times about twenty years back. It entered bankruptcy in September. Two thousand one a result of overexpansion into such things as garden furniture company a travel publishing business and retail garden centers. It exited chapter eleven just four months later but chief. Executive Ball had low expectations at the time.

Brexit: What does proroguing parliament mean?
"Now the history of proroguing parliament goes all the way back to the fifteenth century. Essentially it's the act of suspending the parliament allowing the monarch to introduce a new session but the ancient practice is freshly controversial after Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson convinced the queen to Baroque parliament just weeks before what could be a cataclysmic explicit with the European Union this week a Scottish court ruled the move unlawful suggesting Mr Johnson lied to the Queen to get her to approve the move he he denies that for British parliamentary historians there are new pages being written as a European correspondent Bridget Brennan found out the lights have gone off waist minster at a time in the United Kingdom's history law authorized by Her Majesty's Commission to Declare Her Royal Center Apiece Week Black Rod ended the House of Commons to Perot AG- parliament to the cries of no for main pays wanted disdain the states this is pain one of the most dramatic wayside covered at Westminster and in the middle of breaks. Is that saying something if it were to be the case that the government had misled is let the Queen about the reasons for suspending parliament and the motives for right that would be a very serious matter indeed my view then being the moment for Mister Johnson awesome to resign. We've been going on in this parliament nine for longer than any time. Since the civil war we need a queen speech. Look the whole thing's a mess now for every moment. Parliament argument remains prorogued. The British government are breaking the law. He's the pot where I'd meet. I had no idea what it meant to Perot Parliament before these last few weeks. I've have come to meet someone who does have an in depth understanding of the procedure and the wine which it's been used over the centuries and always interested in politics and less so in in parliament. I don't think people in the tend to pay necessarily huge amounts of attention to the kind of every details of what happens in parliament but I I stayed academia for a while I was historian and then I ended up leaving academia. I wanted to be in a think tank came here. Toy of gene ended up working on parliament just just about the time that parliament became the big story in British politics yeah parliament's Bain days story this week because nope for what what's happening but for what's not happening coming because it's essentially a shutdown explained for us. We'll happened in what's been the reaction so Monday of this week. Parliament was paroled and that's basically a fancy term mm for saying that it's been temporarily suspended between the end of one session of parliament and the beginning of a new session of parliament and that's due to happen on the fourteenth of October Ebba but this is obviously been hugely controversial here. Perturbation is entirely routine. It happens at the end of every session of parliament so in itself. It's not controversial measure but the fact that parliament is being prayed for so long for five weeks which is very unusual in terms of ext link on the fact that this is happening at a time where a brexit headline is leaving has been hugely. He key controversial. This is an exciting week for Dr Alice Lee. She's a senior near researcher from the Institute for Government A- parliamentary GEIC and historian so we've seen people out in the streets would normally be keeping an eye on parliament but it seems sort of sparked real fury papal to say maybe we don't watch him curious every week. We really want the parliament to be. I've been at such a crucial time. I mean was to be expected that people were going to be really affronted by this. I think it was to some extent be expected there were rumors earlier this summer that parliament might be perused correct actually over the thirty first of October said the date on which Britain's going to leave the EU deal or no deal on that certainly sparked a lot of public anger now. That's not quite what's happened. Parliament will still have time between when it comes back on the thirty first of October. MP's have already pasta law that will make it essentially impossible. I leave on the thirty first with no deal unless they've agreed to it but I think it really has sparked quite a significant level of anger and it's put a really big focus actually onto what parliament does so we've seen that the viewing figures for live parliaments during the last couple of weeks of being absolutely eighty three fist. It's like the new box. Full can't get enough of series. One and took brexit went so good and Alor into series three and there's lots of twists and turns so what is the Queen's role in all of this because there have been some comments on that this week after a pretty significant decision from the Scottish court that's right the Scottish court obsession ruled that the probation happened no Monday was unlawful and essentially they found that the advice that the government gave to the Queen when they all step to Peru parliament they did nothing not advice was essentially accurate they th the reason that the government was giving our Gatien which is they wanted to have a queen's speech and invalid big new legislative agenda. They did not think that was the real reason and they wanted to try to limit parliament's role discreet nice government so the Queen is the person who provokes parliament ultimately but it's really important to remember that she only does that on the advice of her government and big convention invention for the Queen's role in all of these things is that the queen is always supposed to be kept out of politics because obviously she does not want to be put in a situation where she as potentially making political judgments but the idea that the the advice that might have been offered to the queen was in some way misleading is obviously a bad looking at raises a lot of significant questions. My government's vegetated program. We'll continue to long-term in recent history has definitely definitely been a couple of decades governments of being accused of using their power to provoke parliament for slightly political controversial purposes so back in nineteen ninety seven John Major when he was Minnesota. Keep roaring parliament just before it was actually about to be dissolved before an election anyway and that it was alleged by many to be so that he could delay the publication of a fairly damning report into a big scandal and then back in nineteen forty eight Clement Atlee the Labor Prime Minister he worked parliament in order to essentially circumvent lords opposition to a piece of legislation that he was trying to pass but certainly the length of this probation is something that we've not seen since at least nineteen forty-five prorogation was first introduced in the fifteenth century when a monarch could dismiss parliament they wished and to look at the longest spell ordered by King or Queen. You have to go back to sixteen twenty nine so the very very longest example is actually if you go back several hundred years when we sort of had the big showdown between parliament and the monarchy under Charles I Charles I essentially suspended parliament for very very long time and ultimately it was that big showdown that the English civil war but certainly in modern history. It's something that's been far far less. Controversial used Prichard Brennan that historical update from
Renault FCA merger set to reshape global car industry
"Fair Chrysler, automobiles, has unveiled a proposed thirty point six billion euro, al-sham measure with Renault that would we shape, the global automative industry, David Atlee discusses, how the jail came about and how it will affect Renos prepares tired with Nissan with Irish masugi and Peter Campbell. Rush tennis about the two men who engineered the deal when did the talk start. And how did the deal come together? Okay. If tickets step back and just imagine that in the last three or four years in the car industry, all the major players were talking to each other. Part of this thesis, was driven by the former CEO, the late CEO of Fiat Chrysler automobiles Sergio Marconi passed away last July, but had written this manifesto called confessions of capital junkie, where he called for consolidation for a number of reasons in the car industry, and he was, in many ways, the chief, confidant of John Elkin who runs the nearly family empire through an investment vehicle called Exor, which is the dominant shareholder and Fiat Chrysler. And so with Mark Janas death Elkin really steps into this role that normally would have been played by any number of special executives brought in by the family over the years to help exercise their interests. But Elkin really stepped into this role and then began taking charge and making a series of moves one. Those moves was to begin conversations with Renault about various things those conversations really took off, when John Dominic scenarist was brought in January to become the Renault chairman, and stabilize the company, which had been going through tumultuous period after the arrest of Carlos gone in Tokyo in November, the meetings between scenario and Alcon took place throughout the spring in Paris, and Turin at their various homes, and then in the last few weeks, what began as talks about cooperation in a broader partnership really shifted into something else, which was a full merger did call us gone have any role in trying to put together such a merger when he was headed. It's run into San Peter and the rest of the team who's been covering the gun fall out reported in March that Nissan had looked at FCA in the past three years in something that was pushed by Goan. It's not clear to what extent he actually wanted to do that. But at the time he was very much more focused on. Combining rhino with Nissan when it became clear that, that deal was not possible to scenario who had replaced gun, the conversations with Elkin really took off, and in centered Elkin found someone who is more mild mannered, who's more classically European traditional very smooth and diplomatic not an ego maniac, not a big character. Which is typically, what defines many of the big auto chief executives Goan would certainly be seen someone who was imperious character. And so in Senator, there was someone who is much easier to deal with. And I think that probably played a major role because Elkins manners is very sort of genteel in European if you want a risk Socratic, and so that dynamic probably helped make this happen. So you could actually save the absence of gone to some extent, maybe even absent Marconi made this deal easier to engineer. So where does that lead us what are the terms on? What will be the balance of power between each side, so it's a fifty fifty stock deal. So the shareholders in Chrysler wife. Fifty percent stake in a new company, which will be a Dutch registered company and Reynaud shareholders will have fifty percent that essentially means that everyone's shareholdings in the two existing companies will be cut in half. So extra will become the most dominant shareholder with about a fifteen percent stake, the French state, and Japan's Nissan which have fifteen percent of Renault. They will have seven and a half percent in the new company and there will be others who have smaller state, but that's largely the three dominant shareholders. That's why John Elkin will become the non executive chairman of the company and at least for the time being is believed that scenario will become the chief executive. But we'll see how that shakes out of the coming years theme what will is still mean for the industry, and can we expect further consolidation. Yeah. I think the message is yes, but the trick is, it's very hard. The industry is beset with big egos with national pride with unions with manufacturing jobs and the core. Thesis behind this is shutting down factories and firing people. So that is a really hard thing to. Swallow layer that in with the fact that you getting some kind of scale through consolidation layer that in with governments that will want to say to try to protect their jobs. And so you have a very difficult dynamic now concurrently to these talks with Reynaud Fiat was talking to pizzo of France. And obviously those talks have fallen apart hoettges looking stilted at the altar a bit. So the question is, what do they do next and Nissan, which at the moment, just looks like a basket case is also left with some questions to ponder upon for the future. But all the major car companies are watching this with great interest at the moment, so he can we then tune to what do we think. With the cost savings, be and will this mean job losses, the Irish alluded to? So the terms set out yesterday were quite clear in the deal. They envisage being able to do this merger without any plump closures now that may sound ambitious, but remember a few years ago, PSA, Persia took over opo and said they would have a turnaround program and integration program, evolve, no plunk closures and brutally. They haven't closed any plants, so. Oh, it's certainly possible to do that. FCA talked about possible cost savings of around five billion euros from combining various things such as purchasing an RND with Renna. But what they're most likely it's do is to avoid additional cost. One of the reasons comic is trying to tie up is because so many of them have such massive investment costs in future technology, think about something like electric vehicles, something like driverless, technology, and Sergia, Makia, knees, onset to or this was, it's much better for comic is to pool resources and spend this money together, rather than old, Joop locating their investment. And so what this does mean is that FCA and Reynaud, if they come together, we'll only have to spend one load of money on developing electric vehicles, rather than say, two now Renos already the European leader in electric vehicles as the biggest selling electric model in Europe and fit Kryza is generally regarded as a lag Auden electric technology and say, we'll hopefully be able to take in some of Renos electric technology. So they'll be looking for cost savings in various areas such as that. And how much will this merger weaken Nissen's bizarre? Mission within the alliance with Renault currently the way that the alliance is set up is that Reynaud Misawa each have equal representation on the alliance operating board says two seats for Japan. That's Nissim officially in two seats for froms. That's the Reynaud CEO and the Reynaud champion his John, Giannis Sonat, and what this will undoubtedly mean. We don't know what this will mean for the aligns board but is almost certainly going to mean that FCA has a seat at that table. It means that Nissan's influence in overall terms will decrease across the alliance, but actually, the view is that Nissan may perceive parts of this deal is incredibly positive for them, one of the conditions the FCC set during these talks with Renna was the any plans to merge renaissance should be shelved for the time being in order to let Nissen and to some extent, Renos wealth focus on they call business because Nissan's core businesses. Not in great shape seeing a huge slide in it sales in the US as saying fools in China. It's really struggling in some of its logo operations and a lot. Of the phone out of the Costco, no arrest and the questions over the future of the alliance and all the shenanigans about would they merge? Would they not merge has been distracting missiles, management, and frankly, Renos management, as well from the day-to-day operations of the business? So the hope is that by putting that issue to bed for the time being it will allow listen to focus on that day today or perations and not sexy is one thing that's been put in that to try and win over Nishantha supporting this deal in short, then that could be benefits finish San in this new alliance with key be so the long term, what if CA is open to doing is having a full on merger with miss sandwich would create by a very long way the world's largest car company with around fifteen million sales, and that would give them huge scale and therefore numerous potential to invest in a lot of the new future technology a much greater resilience in a very cyclical bumpy industry to be able to weather the storms now. That's more long term in the short term suddenly what Nissim would hope is that it just takes the potential of emerge Reynaud off the table. It lets them focus on the business. Which is something they need to do in order to be able to remain competitive in the future turning to another very important stakeholder in this how have investors responded? What has their view been safe, all say, if you look at the Shatt prices the shaft prices of FCA anniversary both rose incredibly strongly yesterday on Monday when the deal was announced, both rose more than ten percent, investors. See this broadly as positive, but there are lots of questions over the Deel. There were lots of questions over whether call makers need to have global scale, which this will give the companies or whether it's better to focus on getting scale instead of half an individual regions like someone like Persia has done with the OPEL deal because what this won't give Reynaud or FCA is much greater scale in any given regions. They have a bit of overlap in Europe, the market, share, at the end of this deal will be about sixteen percent in Europe. So it increases this state bat. But in terms of that Sharon other markets, there wasn't a great deal of overlap, so they won't be the biggest player in major global markets. They operate in. And so there's a. Question about whether they really need regional scale, or whether they need global scale, lots of other questions around merges, and particularly auto mergers that cross borders in general around company, coaches, we've seen a lot of mergers, in the past the famous one is diamond Chrysler go on for a few years, and then just collapsed because they don't work. That's almost never because of industrial issues political issues. It's almost always because of deeply ingrained, cultural issues, car companies are very cultural animals often rooted in the country, that, that headquartered in and say trying to put together a company that has not just a talion in US culture from fat Chrysler, but French culture from rhino, and ultimately, possibly Japanese culture from Nissen as quite a melting pot. If you're trying to put it all together, so there are two questions over this deal. You've mentioned some, but do you see any particular hurdles, is it the cultural is it the regulation is the politics that could prevent this top, the biggest one of the moment is whether Reynaud agrees to it. So while Reynolds, Chavan, John Donnie Senate has. Been in talks with Alcon for a long time over this and in recent weeks about the merger and FCA has put this proposal to Reynaud Renos still has to agree to it. The French state her fifteen percent of Reynaud behalf double voting rights. Still have to agree to it. Nissan, even though they don't have a blocking vote on this still need to agree. You have the Italian government saying that it wants to protect talion jobs. The French government won't to protect French jobs is going to be very political. We still don't know what the locations of this deal are for the specifics of Renos relationship with Nissen, particularly if it'll affect some of their past contracts together. And so there are a lot of things that could potentially derailed the deal. So it's not a slam dunk by any measure, but the language of FCA and the fact that they're leaders of work closely with Renos leaders over the last few weeks to nail this down. Does at least suggest that there is goodwill on both sides, and both of them it is in their interest to do this deal to make it work.
