I'm Ed Baxter with Global News. Could killing up a head to Liverpool on a loan deal. I'm Dan Schwartzman. I'll have that story and more coming up in Bloomberg Sports. That's all straight ahead on Bloomberg Daybreak Asia on Bloomberg 11 30 New York Bloomberg 99 1 Washington D .C. Bloomberg 1061 on Boston Bloomberg 9 60 San Francisco Sirius XM 1 19 and around the world on bloombergradio .com and via the Bloomberg Business App. Hi everybody just after eight o 'clock in the morning here in Hong Kong hour three of the program Graham a very good morning to you. Let's see how the markets are moving at this hour. There's some new markets opening up. business Here's Doug Brian. Right now in Japan we've got the Nikkei up about three hundred and forty points or so. So the gain is greater than one percent right now before we get to the story on the yen. The eco data for Japan looks like this. This is us real output for the month of June month on month positive two percent that was a bit below forecast two point four. But then if you look at it year on year industrial output was negative in June June by four tenths of one percent. The street was looking for a positive three tenths of one percent. The yen does remain We remain a little strong here at about one forty eighty against the greenback but that's after weakening by point two percent in the Friday session U .S. snapping a four day rally. It all came when the Bank bank of Japan delivered kind of a hawkish tweak to policy loosening the BOJ's grip on bond yields saying that fifty basis point ceiling on the ten -year JGB is essentially a reference point it's no longer a cap not a rigid limit so that creates a lot more flexibility for for bond buying needless to say. Right now in Seoul we've got the KOSPI rising about seven tenths of one percent and in in Sydney the ASX two hundred is ahead by six tenths of one percent U .S. Treasury yields drifting a bit higher now as we the get Tokyo the session underway with a ten -year now at three ninety six so we're up a little more than a full basis point a two -year at four eighty eight the dollar flat against the majors and some strengthening coming through in the offshore Chinese Yuan now at seven fourteen eighty seven against the greenback a gain of around a tenth of one percent. take We'll another look at markets in fifteen minutes, Brian. Alright Doug, thanks very much. Well, the notion of a soft landing in the United States seems to be taking hold. The head of the Minneapolis Fed, Neil Kashkari, says the U .S. likely will have a slowing economy, but it will avoid a recession. Kashkari told CBS's Space The Nation the U .S. inflation outlook is quite positive. The economy continues to surprise how resilient it is. That's a really good thing. The unemployment rate is still very low at three point six percent. Nonetheless, I'm not going to dismiss the hardship that Americans are feeling. High inflation for several years has really put a dent in people's pocketbooks. We're now starting to dig our way out of that, so we're making progress. And he does see that the aggressive tightening campaign will probably end with some job losses. He sees unemployment reaching perhaps four percent. On Friday, the closely watched U .S. report Jobs is projected to show that hiring increased at a healthy yet more moderate clip. In China, the country is expected to announce some new measures to boost consumption today. Let's get that story from Bloomberg's Bonnie Au in Hong Kong. These new directives follow a slew of other policies unveiled in recent weeks to revive the economy. Growth momentum weakened Property markets slumped. Just Friday, China laid out a plan to boost consumer industries. It also pushed efforts to grow an exchange dedicated to helping small firms get access to funds. Earlier month, this measures were introduced to lift sales of cars, electronic products and rural consumption. The consumption new package will be announced this afternoon in Beijing. In Hong Kong, I'm Bonnie Au, Bloomberg Daybreak France's finance minister Bruno Lemaire has called on Chinese companies to invest more in Europe. Bloomberg's Joan Wong with that story in Hong Kong. Lemaire said his talks in Beijing were positive a on piece that would help fight climate change. The two countries said they'd work together on improving the regulatory environment surrounding cosmetics and they'd address concerns over intellectual property rights of French companies in China. Lemaire said he wants to get better access in China. He added that decoupling is not possible. More meetings will be held in France before the end of the year. In Hong Kong, the two countries said they'd be a partner at MBMG Group, but now it's time for global news. Germany is warning its officials that China is stepping up spying in the country. Ed Baxter with global news from the 360 newsroom in San Francisco. Ed. Yeah, that's right, Brian. Notice this. China significantly stepped up efforts to find information intelligence in recent years, and has built up a worldwide network of contacts and is constantly striving to expand that. It has always warned companies of caution and restraint in any activities that could be interpreted as cooperation with a foreign secret service, but says China is really making its efforts known now. China is getting a lot of attention on the US campaign trail as well as a battle against fentanyl as well. Republican candidate for president and former UN ambassador Nikki Haley says China's military prowess continues to be built and it continues to buy up US soil and property. She says it has to stop. We wouldn't allow them to buy US soil. We would take the land that they bought back them. from We would go and say no more are we selling any sort of sensitive technologies that allow them to build up their military and threaten the US. We would stop that. We would tell our universities you either take Chinese money or American money the but days of taking both are over and we get that Chinese infiltration out. She says she would ban Chinese companies having from access to sensitive technologies and not do business with any companies involved in technology theft. As for fentanyl on CBS face a nation has heard on Bloomberg says it must be addressed now. Number one cause of death for adults 18 to 49 Margaret is fentanyl and don't think for a second China doesn't know what they're doing. So what I would do is say to China we will end all normal trade relations with you until you stop killing Americans. And Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer today said

"Is Bloomberg daybreak Europe. It was a great town in trough. It was obviously a sense that MPs, ministers, all the public, couldn't rely on information that was coming out of Downing Street. So the blame for it when historians go back over the series will largely lie at his door. I know that there will be many people who are relieved, quite a few who will also be disappointed. And I want you to know how sad I am to be giving up the best job in the world. Bloomberg daybreak, Europe. On Bloomberg radio. It's 7 30 in London, good morning. I'm Stephen Carroll. And I'm Caroline hepco, welcome to Bloomberg day by Europe. We are seeing stocks pointing negative this morning ahead of the European trading session stocks 50 futures down by 1.6% now the S&P E minis are down by 8 tenths of 1% on the bond markets ten year treasury yields in the U.S. still over 3%, although database is point this morning and the ten year bunts down by three basis points of one spot 32. Looking at oil prices, they're also siding today one and a half percent WTI at a $103 24. The dollar four tenths of 1% stronger than the Bloomberg dollar spot index that's pushing down the end, the Euro and the pound. Now to our top stories, the main pipeline for Russian gas to Europe goes down for ten days of maintenance today and the region is bracing for Vladimir Putin to cut off flows for good Bloomberg's UN pots has the details. As the Nord stream pipeline shuts for maintenance work, France's finance minister says the continent must get ready for winter. Speaking to Bloomberg, Bruno lemaire says that France is doing everything it can to avoid power shortages, but he says the country needs to be careful with energy consumption while building up gas stockpiles for the months ahead. In London, I'm your imports convector at Europe. So that was being based in parts Canada has, though, now agreed to export a repaired gas turbine for that pipeline back to Germany despite objections. Foreign secretary Liz truss has entered the race to replace Boris Johnson as prime minister with the pledge to cut taxes from day one. She joins ten other candidates who have begun to make their pitches, including former Chancellor Rishi sunak, his successor Nadine zahawi and transport secretary grant shops. He says government spending cuts could help pay for his tax proposals. The reduction which has already planned one P off the income tax rate, the basic rate that should happen now. I also want to stop freeze if you like. The proposed increase in corporation tax. That's transport secretary grant shops, the precise timetable for the leadership concept, contest is expected to be set out later today, conservatives are keen to whittle down candidates to a final two before parliament goes on its summer recess in a week and a half's time. And now European Central Bank governing council member Yanis tuna says that the new tool to keep debt market turmoil at bay in Europe may not need to be used if markets just believe in its power. Speaking to Bloomberg, sonali said that he currently doesn't expect there to be a recession in the Eurozone. There is no question about that. And this is a very nasty supply side soak. But for the moment, we don't expect negative growth this year or next year on the baseline scenario. I repeat that, but we can not exclude an adverse scenario. In the adverse scenario, which has to do with negative surprises on the energy front, we might have recession next year. Then we'll consider our position again. European Central Bank governing council member Janis donara speaking exclusively to Bloomberg there, the ECB has accelerated work on its so called anti fragmentation tool after a jump in Italian government yields in June. In Sri Lanka, opposition parties are trying to cobble together an all party government and pick candidates who can take over from the president and prime minister. Bloomberg city ranjan sen reports. I agreed to step down after unprecedented protests in Sri Lanka, but that hardly solves the problem. To begin with, the political instability and the chaos is unlikely to help the IMF to come to a conclusion and give Sri Lanka a D and the next president and the prime minister is going to be chosen from the parliament where president go to buy a Raja pakist party holds a majority. Therefore, it's not yet clear whether the opposition gets to feel its own candidates or it will be somebody from Brazil and go to Rajapaksa's party. And whether that particular person who comes in next as a leader of Sri Lanka is going to be acceptable to the people who have been protesting on the streets that with Bloomberg's city ranch on San reporting from Sri Lanka, he also says on the ground that food fuel and medicine are running shores. And now Bloomberg has learned that Twitter has hired a top merger law firm as it races to sue Elon Musk. Sources say that the social media company aims to file a suit in Delaware early this week. The billionaire announced plans on Friday to drop his $44 billion takeover bid for Twitter, Musk alleges that the social network made quite misleading representations over its number of spam bots and then just earlier this morning issued a humorous response on Twitter of course to Twitter's preparation to sue him and to force that completion of the takeover deal. So, yeah. You can see the photographs. Never miss an opportunity for social media job. Those are our top stories. We're talking next about FinTech and the prepaid kids debit card and financial education group go Henry has acquired French FinTech picks pay in a deal to expand the business into Europe for the first time. The shift away from using cash, the pandemic and air the cost of living crisis role reasons that pocket money apps have become more popular. Well, go ahead Henry says that it has more than 2 million users in the UK and U.S. and raised $40 million in a funding round 18 months ago. And so I'm pleased to say that joining us now is the founder and COO of go Henry, Louise hill, Louise welcome to Bloomberg radio. Thank you, hello. So first of all, on the deal, why buy picks pay? Well, we're the pioneering kids finance in the UK and the U.S., as you've said. And picks pay is the lead or in team banking in France and Spain and very much a company we feel shares our values and ambition. So together, we will be able to further our mission to make every kid and team smart with money. It lets us expand into Europe for the first time, grow our 2 million plus UK and U.S. member base and fundamentally accelerate our growth, improve our competitive advantage and cement our global leadership position. So we're very excited about it. Louise, you're going to keep picks pay as a separate company, not integrate it into go Henry why, have you decided to do that? Well, pigs pay already have a strong customer base across France and Spain. They're a well loved brand there. And go Henry the same in the UK and U.S.. So it makes sense for the moment, certainly, to keep the two brands separate. Okay. Just tell me about how fast the business is growing. I read that your revenue more than doubled to $42 million in 2021. Is that accurate what other numbers can you give us? Yes, it did. We've doubled during the pandemic as the move to cashless accelerated. We've been growing very strongly in the U.S., our U.S. operation has had triple digit growth for since it launched in 2018. And picks pay has gone from a standing start in April 2019 to over 200,000 customers across France and Spain. So yeah, all elements of the business have been growing incredibly strongly. So your focus is on a 6 to 18 year olds a

French finance minister Bruno lemaire for the month the S&P was up 6.9% this week the S&P advanced 1.3% Today stocks climbed S&P up 9 a gain of two tenths of 1% the Dow up 89 up three tenths of 1% NASDAQ also up by three tenths of 1% Global news 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quicktake powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries I'm Charlie belloc this is Bloomberg You're listening to balance of power with David Weston on Bloomberg radio Bloomberg reported this week that the Treasury Department and other agencies will give the green light to a plan for the SEC to take the lead role in regulating stable coins something Cher Gary gensler has been pushing for likening the coins to bank deposits that have to be backed up by reserves to explain the move and how it fits into the larger issues of regulating cryptocurrencies I talked to Todd Zimmerman of Superman compliance services The SEC is sort of drifted into this area in the past It doesn't seem like this would be this kind of congressional action If it's security the SEC has the authority to regulate it I guess that could be challenged but I think it's pretty clear I think I'm pretty solid ground here It is the basic idea here for stable coins which are as I understand it tied to a Fiat currency The fact that there are reserves that basically are reasonably liquid to back it up because that's the promise as I understand it of the stable coin That's how it's supposed to work Now how that exactly will work is a little unclear at which currency is backed up and where that will be held And ultimately who's going to be the party on the hook to the extent that you have a breaking of the valuation Is this a like money markets essentially That's all I understand it So money markets with a crypto overlay Yes I think that's exactly right So this would be one step in that direction Maybe not requiring congressional action What else needs to be done Because these are just stable coins we're talking about For example Bitcoin would not be covered by this as I understand it Yeah I think look there's a lot going on in the crypto space As I'm sure you're all aware the SEC finally approved a Bitcoin futures ETF fund the pro shares fund which is done very very well A lot of demand for that And then there's a lot of pushing for additional crypto funds Those potentially will invest in future invest directly crypto The SE isn't there yet I think the future is fund is testing the market but some of the concerns with investing in futures are solved as opposed to investing directly in the cryptocurrency things like valuation and liquidity It's much more difficult in a direct investment And that is because with respect to futures as opposed to the underlying Bitcoin or other cryptocurrency there is a regulatory level inserted because of the futures right I think that's part of it The futures market is a fairly well established market It's regulated futures prices are regulated So I think the SEC is more comfortable with that and obviously Gary Gus are used to run the CFTC So he is not a neo fight when it comes to the futures market I think the commission and many people in the market are just less comfortable with direct trading and the coins themselves although we're moving in that direction There's no question about it Talk about some of the other issues that would not necessarily resolve just by making sure that a stable coin is backed up by the Fiat currency it's supposed to be tied to What are some of the other issues that regulatory authorities should be concerned about or for that matter Congress I still think at the end of the day this is not this is affiliation market right Valuation is still a little fuzzy And what I would say is volatile I think that's in volatile markets create situations and in consequences or unintended So that's a big one Will those markets actually liquid will they seize up I think there's security concerns around the underlying technology and then of course you got some tangential concerns like the environmental concerns which have been raised around crypto mining which have not been solved either So there's quite a few things that we need to be addressed But I think the el can be addressed primarily with disclosure and with some of the SEC's traditional mechanisms Are we in a competition globally here with other jurisdictions that are more accepting of cryptocurrency than perhaps the United States Oh I think absolutely Look I think crypto is here to stay Either as a currency or a payment mechanism et cetera Someone's going to someone is going to be the primary regulator because people got to feel safe I think it should be the SEC they're the best and most knowledgeable regulator in the world is secure financial markets But if the SEC continues to push crypto away somebody else will take on that regulatory responsibility whether it be one of the European regulators perhaps China perhaps the office or regulators But I think yes you should just step in here and make the U.S. the primary venue for crypto trading So the SEC as you say has a long track record of being a very sophisticated regulator At the same time going back to the very beginning you said as certain aspects of a security But does cryptocurrency have aspects of security Do you have an ownership as it represented ownership interest in some asset which is what the security typically does Well I don't want to get too inside legal mumbo jumbo but it has to do with whether you're under the SEC how we test whether you're benefiting from the participation of others Is.

Bloomberg Brian sir All right thank you very much Well Asian economies are rebounding from the coronavirus shock but at a slower pace than previously anticipated Let's bring in Stephen Schwartz at Asia Pacific sovereigns at Fitch ratings to take a look at the recovery here Well just looking at China and I know there are a lot of factors at play there but with the data coming up Bloomberg is now predicting that GDP will have slowed to 5% in the third quarter and that would be down from 7.9% in the previous three months What's actually happening right across the board with Asian economies Yes great to be with you Well as you said at the outset we do expect patient economies to continue recovering from the depths of the pandemic shock but at a slower pace than we anticipated previously And that's because of the unexpected delta variant outbreaks in the second and third quarter of this year And Asia really got behind on vaccinations but they're catching up quickly now And that's why we think the regions on a firmer footing So from here on out we do expect that growth momentum to pick up for the most part But as you flagged China is a growing concern and growth is flowing precipitously there as we see You flagged a number of other countries as concerned but let's look at what you're looking at in terms of holding up relatively well And you're looking at the likes of Japan Korea Taiwan and we saw TSMC's results yesterday out of the water So still a lot of demand here for chips which is going to help these economies Absolutely and north Asia growth is holding up quite well apart from what I just mentioned in China and that's really due to external demand The global shortage in semiconductors is just proving to be a big boost for Taiwan and Korea in particular in Japan is holding its own with strong export demand as well So in terms of sovereigns when you look across give me two or three of the best outlooks at the moment Well across the region we've got three negative outlooks and two positive outlooks the positives are on New Zealand and Vietnam And Vietnam took a big hit from the unexpected virus outbreak in the third quarter of the year after they had had virtually no COVID up till then But FBI is remaining strong companies like Vietnam as a production base And so while supply disruptions are certainly continuing to have an impact there we expect the outlook for Vietnam to remain strong That's a real bright spot As I said north Asia is doing quite well South Asia has really taken it on the chin throughout this pandemic But with vaccine rates picking up we expect growth to pick up gradually into 2022 as well And the vaccine rates in the reopening I mean surely this can change really quickly We've seen that this week having Indonesia opening barley Malaysia relaxing some of its restrictions to here in Singapore a number of vaccinated travel lands being announced and that turned things around and kind of changed the outlook for these countries given that it is happening at quite a rapid pace Well we're being a bit more cautious with respect to the impact of those reopening If there's certainly helpful but we think it's going to be a very prolonged and gradual process for travel to resume across the region and we're mindful that the virus and the evolution is so uncertain we're not out of the Woods by any means And even if travel sectors and Indonesia are say Thailand reopen as they are now they're restrictions back home that tourists face So you know tourists from China are not going to really venture for long weekends in Thailand if they have two or three week quarantine on arrival back home And there's some interesting conundrums in Vietnam for instance first of the month the government relaxed some of the restrictions and boy did we see an exodus from the south from the highly productive regions the manufacturing for a lot of western companies Those workers just went to the rural areas It went home They just had the freedom to do so They're going to look for jobs out there and you know that's just one example but there may be a lot of churn that we see in a lot of these countries things that we didn't plan on Exactly And that brings us to our maybe foremost concern longer term which is the economic scarring of this crisis And that kind of labor dislocation you mentioned You know it's a very strong support for low income workers when they can return to rural areas and maintain some income that way But that whole labor market dislocation is going to impact economies over the medium term So economy will we've seen rises and unemployment together with big collapse of an investment and here the Philippines really stands out across this region in that regard We're going to not see medium term growth return to the same levels that we are used to seeing It's going to take a very long time for medium term growth to resume Let's talk about indie You've got triple B negative here Is this on concerns about government debt or what are you looking at here Yes that's the driver of that negative outlook India was an economy that entered this crisis with already high public debt levels of around 70% of GDP And as a result of the crisis public debt is now just over 90% of GDP which is really off the charts for a triple-b emerging market economy for us here at fit So that's why the negative outlook is on We do think that that level will stabilize at this level over the coming years So that could end up being a support factor for the rating But we're continuing to assess that negative output Stephen we've talked a lot about pent up enthusiasm for spending once we get the all clear Something we haven't talked all that much about is reinvestment And maybe foreign direct investment but even maybe more at the company level CAPEX are we going to see a round of that Well I think you know in that semiconductor industry and the economy that do very well there like Korea and Taiwan were certainly seeing a lot of that And companies say that they're really ramping up investment expand production amidst the global shortage But elsewhere around the region we think we

radio and television is a big question globally He says the U.S. wants to oppose China the EU wants to engage So let's discuss about the best way of talking with China working with China We don't think that opposing China is right way of behaving but let's discuss about that key question Alamara says the global dilemma for the west Japan now prepared for the October 31st general election the powerful lower house of parliament has been dissolved A Bloomberg has access flight records in the U.S. that show out of practice airline pilots are making errors getting back in the cockpit Bloomberg's Angus whitley telling Bloomberg cherry on that most are minor but one pilot forgot to start his engine second engine It's a takeoff on the runway Another pilot forgot to put the landing gear down when he was coming into land and pulled out in the last moment And another case a pilot turned the wrong way coming out of the business Oh my goodness And all these all these incidents had one common factor in these pilots had come back from a lengthy leave Now to be really careful to tell you that all of those incidents ended well There was there were no problems but some problems pointed up by that research In San Francisco I'm at Baxter This is Bloomberg right Brian All right Thanks very much The time here 8 and a half minutes past the hour Our guest is raul shadra Our shadow who is CIO of Marie asset global investments Raul just looking at markets today it seems like there's a bit of a relief rally underway And maybe a little bit more opportunistic in nature One of the things we've been talking about is that investors have come to grips with more assertive central banks Do you agree Absolutely I think what happened was that we saw markets kind of pulled back on these fears of stagflation on the tapering which was kind of an eminent But took the underlying economic momentum is very strong And I think that's where as we saw over a strong result from U.S. banks market for moved up So we remain constructive on market share We have an interesting conundrum that we've posed on our am live blog today that inflation is up ten year yields it down please explain So basically why are we saying you know this thought about concerning the bond market when you're still seeing very very strong inflation So if you look at what's happening in the bond market fed speed buying close to 50 55% of the total issuances since December 19 And the other bonds are being won by bought by these money market funds So I think that's where as you see tapering kind of a play out you will see bond yields move up And also there is a school of thought which is that looker deflation is a bigger problem for the world from a two three year perspective So if the eels inch up higher there are a lot of institutions we had a happy playing going long duration because of the deflation concerns Well and you know if you're an investor and you think that these central banks will be successful if you think the fed is getting out in front that will tamp down inflation and thus things are better for the bond market So why not buy and that would drive eels down So absolutely so that is that is a section of investors are taking that look again It's an aging society It's poor demographics and that is society This will come and aggressively came down this inflation and then again we go back to the secular stagnation And that's where you go along with the duration So time only would tell which part of this thing is right whether you go short duration here long duration but it's going to be interesting 6 9 months from here And speaking of 6 to 9 months do we see that higher inflation ease once some of these big concerns we could particularly when you look at the supply chain start to ease somewhat Absolutely So I think there are two things which are happening what we've seen is consumer also as economies open move away from Spain's own durables to consumer services which is eating our travel et cetera so that kind of relieves the burden on demand for some of these consumer durables What we've seen is because of the breakout of COVID in Asia severe supply bottlenecks And the quarantines are being eased as vaccinations ramp up in this part of the world And that's where our view is that give it about three to four months The supply bottlenecks would be there but not everyone not everyone agrees Diane swank from grant Thornton says she doesn't expect inflation to slow until 2023 will continue with Al shada in a moment This is Bloomberg Peter with early paycheck you can get your direct deposit up to two days earlier That's another reason banking with Capital One is the easiest decision ever Even easier than deciding to open.

data privacy rules That's according to analysis on the website of the people's daily The Communist Party's mouthpiece Foo two holdings was one that was held up and also up FinTech holding They were cited as case studies in the people's daily report From the South China morning post and this is a puzzling one a Hong Kong domestic helper tested positive 5 days after completing her quarantine And if you're not familiar with Hong Kong that's 21 days of quarantine The helper is imported infection was the only Hong Kong case yesterday The woman tested negative repeatedly before eventually

San Francisco I met Baxter This is Bloomberg Irish All right thank you very much indeed for that Let's get back to our guess of the half hour Carol pepper sea of pepper international getting her take on the market I know they're very very very very early into the earnings season whatever you're getting any picture that you're drawing from it Yes hi rashon Yes I think that the picture is news is good Companies have rebounded companies have been careful and they're beating or meeting their expectations So I think we're in good shape I think we'll have a nice earnings season I'm happy about that One of the points that a guest on the show made yesterday which I found kind of interesting was that CAPEX has grown a lot more slowly than depreciation over the past few years So it's not that surprising if you track that ratio that we would have supply destruction And I guess that means we should get used to being short for a while But it also means there must be some opportunity there for an investor Can you think on your feet fast enough to tell me how I can make money on that Well I think you want to look at materials companies You want to look at building companies You want to look at anybody who's supplying anything good to big corporations because you're absolutely right They just sort of weren't sure what was going to happen and so they were holding back from doing a great deal of reinvesting in the capital structures of the companies and just doing stock buybacks which is a short term fix Now they've got a lot of money in the balance sheet so all these corporations it's time for them to start really fixing their operations They're all looking at onshore for example a lot of parts of their business that went offshore because they don't want to be caught like this again So I think this is going to be very good for the United States You're going to see a lot of business come back here For companies that are here I just talked to a guy for example who was recycling boxes They would break down the box and send them to China to be rehabbed into new cardboard and shipped back Now they're going to bring those machines over here and do the entire process in country So yes I think we're going to finally finally see some capital investment by these companies I think that will happen And this is something which has really been an issue hasn't it I mean if we look at let's take a look at semiconductors And semiconductor business itself and the shortages we've been having this year talking to a guest yesterday And she was saying that the ultimately it's after years of under investment That's one of the reasons why we're in this position of the only reason but one of the reasons So which of the industry groups which have been most underinvested in in terms of CAPEX Well I think everybody has been I wouldn't say there's one in particular I think it's a guilty of charge across the board because the conventional wisdom for so long was look just find the cheapest place in the world and transport things back and forth to different parts of an assembly in different countries And move items around and then bring them back here to sell That's no longer actually such a great idea we saw what can happen when the entire world shuts down So I think you're going to get a lot more regional hubs You're going to see people building things and selling them in the same region known as short boat ride away instead of say building things in Asia and bringing them to the states So I just think you'll see more business for example from Mexico A lot of that business is coming back from Asia and going to Mexico I know of conversations that are happening in that direction So you're going to see a lot more opportunity to make things locally And perhaps even coming back into the United States itself On portfolio mix you're quite the fang bull and in fact you like growth overall something like two thirds growth one third value And does that run for a while Absolutely I think that runs for the next for the last ten years growth has outperformed value Hands down significantly And I think the next ten years will be the same story So there are some good value companies but we're in the financial sector I mean a lot of the value companies are just kind of dead horses as far as I'm concerned You're better off to go with a higher weight on growth with a focus on technology and healthcare That's where and consumer discretionary certainly in the next 6 months because now consumers have repaired their balance sheets as they start going back to work and they get to work from home or you're going to continue to see home improvement and buying things not necessarily as much traveling but then that money goes back into more goodies and spending for home based life In short vacation So you're going to see a shift that's very positive in that respect But I do think growth will continue to outperform value and a simple way to get all those big things in your portfolios to buy QQ the ETF stick it in your.

international Carol we just heard there from Morgan Stanley's CEO James Gorman saying that the markets are pretty much prepared now for inflation We've got a lot of people loading over onto that side of the boat now pretty quickly It didn't seem like that was the case A few weeks back I know you've got some individual calls here You're looking a lot at sustainability and we can get to that But do you feel comfortable now with this idea that the market is prepared for higher interest rates Hi Brian Yes I think the market is prepared for higher interest rates I think the raises will be small a quarter of a point at a time And they will be well telegraphed before they happen So there will not be a lot of surprises It's not Blake We're going to wake up one morning and interest rates have been raised 1% So yes I believe that we are prepared and everybody will take it in stride But there are of course consequences I mean how far will rates lightly go up And of course that's going to be contingent on the economic environment But moving rates higher after years and years of free money is not a painless process No of course it's not painless but it's also a sign that the economy is recovering that the economy is no longer completely in the doldrums And we see this We see all that free money that dumped into the economy has been put to work We see that consumers are in the best shape they've been in a decade Corporations are doing well earnings are coming in strong So as we slowly get our arms around COVID and we untangle the supply chains we have a very good future ahead of us I think the rest of this year will be very nice and going into the new year's We're going to have a nice Christmas season for shoppers and I do believe that unless some bizarre viral version new version of COVID comes along the world is going to learn to live with COVID And we'll be back to business as usual Additional emphasis on working from home part time I think that's here to stay So living with COVID and living with inflation those are major risks that seem like they're getting at least better understood and manageable And that means that it makes it easier for you to kind of concentrate on your sort of bottom up strategies You really like electric cars You're like lithium batteries And you like infrastructure pick one and start with it Well sure I think first of all infrastructure I do believe that the bill is going to be passed As you know I manage money for people with over a $100 million generally family offices and we look at things that are going to do well in the next 5 to ten years And I do think some form of the infrastructure Bill will get passed So if you look at the ETF PA VE it's up 25% this year And I think it's got more to run certainly in the next year because we haven't even started on all the new infrastructure projects that will come online that will create jobs and there will start to fix some of the roads and potholes and bridges that we're dealing with Then in terms of electric cars those are really coming They're really really coming people So again you want to invest in things like Li.

The world's wealthiest nations have backed a plan to set a global minimum corporate tax rate of at least fifteen percent on multinational companies. The agreement was reached during a meeting in britain of the g seven. That's the group of seven. Us treasury secretary. Janet yellen praised. The agreement g seven has taken significant steps this weekend to end the existing harmful dynamic making commitments today that provide tremendous momentum towards achieving robust global minimum tax at a rate of at least fifteen percent that global minimum tax within three race to the bottom in corporate taxation and ensure fairness for the middle class in working people in the us and around the world oxfam criticized the g seven agreements saying in a statement quote. It's absurd for the g. Seven to claim it's overhauling a broken global tax system by setting up a global minimum corporate tax rate that's similar to the soft rates charged by tax havens like ireland switzerland and singapore. They're setting the bar so low that companies can just step step over it for more. We go to nobel prize winning economist joseph stiglitz he's a columbia university professor chief economist for the roosevelt institute served as chair of the council of economic advisers under president bill clinton and his chief economist of the world bank. He recently wrote a piece in the financial times headline g. Seven leaders can strike a blow on global corporate tax. He's joining us from case spain. The birthplace of salvador dali joe stiglitz. Thanks for joining us once again on democracy now here so why don't you start off by talking. About what the g seven agreed to. And why you think It has failed and trying to hold. Corporations accountable will be clear extra story. We haven't had agreement like this Beginning of exchange but at the same time exa- added. They embraced some very useful language. They said at least fifteen percent. France is going for higher than fifteen percent span. I believe very strongly. I'm part of international. Civil society group expend looking at reform of the multinational taxes and we argued for a minimum tax at twenty five percent. The danger is that if you have to low tax rate that minimum tax becomes defacto the maximum tax the actual tax and that's why oxfam bring says expressed a concern that the rate actually is not that different from some of the lowest rates in the world on the other hand. Would they forget. Is that the actual. Amount paid is not the official tax rate. You know google apple all these companies that produce the products that we love also excel in tax avoidance and tax rate to that apple pay for instance in ireland was not twelve and a half percent. Which is the official rate but a fraction of one percent. Let me bring in. What the french finance minister bruno lemaire said about the fifteen percent minimum corporate tax rate. Saying it's just a starting point you abune successful new taxation giant global little corporate tax tax evasion and tax avoidance outrage our fellow-citizens vicious agreement. Minimal rate that we've agreed on the corporate taxes and fifteen cents. And i say it again. Minimum fifteen percent starting point in that gimbal minimum tax. That's the french finance minister brunette lemaire Joe stiglitz. I think he's absolutely right. We should view this as the minimum of the minimum. We need a minimum tax rate. Otherwise there is a race to the bottom that has been going on for a very long time and what the g seven is done is begin to stop that race to the bottom and it is going to be critical that brutal mira's view view. I've taken that it needs to be substantially higher than fifteen percent. There's another provision in in With the g seven dead. I want to call attention to. Which is.

"Minister. I'm wondering when you are scheduled to talk to Janet Yellen theme incoming Treasury secretary in the United States, depending on the votes, When is that conversation going to happen? What do you think the focus of that conversation will be? And do you worry that the European Union's new trade deal with China may make relations with Washington a little bit more difficult? Asshole hope to have the possibility off talking toe Zenit a soon as possible in a few days, But first of all, we are waiting for confirmation from the U. S in age, so I want to stick. Theo American procedure off course, and I'm waiting for the formal confirmation from the U. S in eight and then we will have a lot of topics that we will have to address. But I know Jenna Chilean very well, Andre sure that we will have Very constructive relationship on many topics. The first one will be off course, international taxation and the very first statements. Made by Jenna Chillin on international taxation clearly marked a change in the American position on the right direction. Own digital taxation on on minimum taxation, especially the second issue that we would have on the table even if it is not exactly in the school. All the restaurants, abilities of radiant Dylan will be the necessity off withdrawing the sanctions against you and doing our best to Fort Find an agreement on trading questions, and especially under booing at this case, But because clearly this is a matter of concern for all of us here in Europe and the last point with me as you just said that the relationship with China I think that We have to do come on the force the U. S and Europe to engage China into more constructive relationship on the international stage. And incentivizing China Tau Bay by the international rules on intellectual property, for instance, or on the level playing field, and I hope that we will be able to have a common view on this approach towards China. Minister. Thank you for your time today it is greatly appreciated the French Finance Minister Bruno Lemaire from the World Economic Forum. Back to you. Thank you so much. The guy Johnson for that timely and really important interview with the French finance minister to get a readout on particular what they talked about at the end there with coordination, possible coordination with United States. We turn now to our colleague Bill fairies who covers international affairs and national security issues in Washington. So Bill I know that President Biden had the first talk with President Macron of France over the weekend, supposedly about NATO and about climate. Two things. I guess they would be inclined to agree upon. Exactly. I think what we've seen from President Biden so far is a much more traditional outreach to allies on, you know, areas of common interest things they could work together on the first call was Trudeau. In Canada and, of course, historically in the creek Over time. The U. S president generally met made his first trip to be one to Canada and in Mexico. Now that we're in covert in the pandemic, he made his calls Tohru Girl in the Mexican president. But and then started the outreach with the UK and the European allies. But yes, they're going to focus on areas and common NATO climate change any coordination they can on covert issues as well well about the covert issue coordination Bruno Lemaire, the French finance minister. We just heard from as said he would like to have more coordination on things like the stimulus package. 1.9 Trillion is that likely to happen? Well, I think from the bidet administration's point of view, their focus is getting any kind of packages. This point. We've seen a lot of pushback from both moderate Republicans and some Democrats in that package, so I think the administration will worry a lot more about the domestic politics. Now, then the the international politics. Okay, Bill. Always great to have you with us. Thank you very much for joining us. That's our colleague bill fairies. We turn now from foreign relations in the by administration back to the subject that is affecting all nations around the world. And that is, of course, fighting the pandemic as everyone races to get as many people vaccinated just as soon as possible. We continue to rely, though, on treatments for the millions already infected. Scent of ax is one of the company's working on such treatments, using some something called computational immuno Engineering to find breakthrough medicines. Welcome now the company's CEO, he's Dr Jacob Glanville. Welcome. It's great to have you with us. I have to say, I think you could start we explain to me exactly what computational them, you know. Engineering is Sure. Well, thanks for having me on it's a mouthful. But what it really means is that we Used advances in computation, as well as a wet lap practice is to try to produce better medicines. The first generation of antibody therapies have worked, Okay, They didn't work in the hospital, and they're not very convenient to deliver outside of the hospital. Because they require an I V. And so the doctors who could given ivy are busy giving it more sick patients. So the last issue, of course, is that the new mutations that are emerging around the world, many of them are interfering with the initial wave of antibodies to be able to provide treatment. We've used our engineering techniques, design anybody that buying to conserve location on the virus that it hasn't been able to mutate and Achilles heel. We've also engineered it so that we can concentrate our antibodies into a syringe so that people can get a convenient injection when they get sick early and they don't need to go to a hospital. So those air advances to make a better.

"Balance of power on Bloomberg Television and radio. We're also joined by our listeners on the cable here in the United Kingdom. Let's turn to the Virtual World Economic Forum in Davos. I'm joined now by Francis Finance Minister Bruno Lemaire. Minister. Thank you very much. Indeed. For your time this evening, it is now expected that France will announce a further lockdown this week, a national lockdown. You preparing to announce additional fiscal support for French business on their employees when this happens First of all on the low down. I just want to insist on the fact that nothing has been decided yet. We will have a very important meeting on the Wednesday With president Macron. We will assess your health situation on then take the required decisions. But once again, nothing has been decided yet. Our policy is quite clear. We will support all the economic sectors that our body heat by the crisis. As long as it will be needed. And if we are to take new measures, we will have also to provide new support to the sectors that will be more severely hit. By these measures. It must be very clear that we stand beside those sectors. We have decided from the very beginning from March. 2020 to support the employees supports two companies to support all the sectors that have been hit by the crisis. And we will continue to do the same as long as a pandemic will continue to strike France and Europe. How long do you think that support is now going to be required for? Are you starting to change your thinking about the duration off this pandemic? There was an assumption. That, for instance, the travel and tourism sector would be back to normal. By this summer. That is increasingly being called into question. Ah, you starting to rethink the duration of this I think that back to normal is kind off wording that I would not shoes for the time being, because it would be too tricky. All assumption that we have to divide two year 2021 in two parts, the first part of the year. 2021 Let's say till next summer. I think that we will have to continue supporting some of the economic sectors in France on Which would be appointed cool, social and uneconomic mistake to his drool that kind off measures while the pandemic is still there. They hope that in the signal part off 2021. We will be able to lift the measures the measures for health security, we will be able to elevate that kind of difficulties. And in that kind in that case if the pandemic is over I think that we can count on the very strong rebound off the French economy on the second part off 2021. What makes me with confidence. About this situation. The economy situation in France is that when we have decided on the summer, 2022 lived at the measures for the heads measures. Then their husband very strong. We bone in the French economy, which means that we have everything that is required to have a very strong and very quickly bone as soon as a pandemic is over. Minister Within the last couple of seconds. We have news from Italy, where the Italian Treasury is now saying that it sees 2021 GDP growth as low as 4.5%. You've indicated that you're 6% target for this year is quote challenging on that forecast is dependent on no further lockdowns. How much do you think your targets your 6% target could suffer if, as you say a decision potentially could be made Wednesday, the couldn't still install a further lockdown. Let's be very clear. I made very clear from the very beginning that 6% was a challenge on that These challenge is directly linked to health situation. If there is love down, But once again, nothing has bean decided yet on this love, dawn and any further measures. But if there is a decision off love down in Frantz off course it will have direct impact on Ward's forecast on it would be very difficult to reach 6% of rules either is love down, decided in a few days or in a few weeks, but it should not be a surprise for anybody because We have been very clear from the very beginning on the assumptions and on the way we have defined the level of wars for 2021. The 6% is a challenge. I think that we can reach it provided that there is no new has measures on no new love down in France. See what happens later on this week. As you said, this is going to be well. You think this is going to be a game of two hearts that the second half of the year is likely to look better? One of the factors behind that is likely to be the progress that is going to be made on vaccinations. France is currently lagging behind on vaccinations. Why is that happening? Onboard impact Do you think it's going to have on the French economy? You know, from the very beginning of General re at Mac home made very clear that we had to accelerate on the vaccinations. And you can see the results now. We have one million people being vaccinated by the end off General re. So we are on the right track, and I think that's his decision off accelerating. The campaign of vaccination was the right one. We can see the positive results off this decision from present macron kind of who There is a direct link between Success off the vaccination and the possibility off having a very strong economic rebound. By the end of this year. We are on the right direction once again. And justified. That's the vaccination campaign has accelerated is good news for all of us..

"Yes, I want that trillions of dollars you is you talk about, But maybe not all at one time, I might be able to go in with a much more modest package that would bring Republicans along as a first. Step in stimulus. What do you make of that? I think that is a smart approach. I am not sure if he goes in a step fashion. He's going to ultimately get everything he wants. But President seldom do. And Joe Biden knows that better than anybody. But he is going to need those Republicans, at least some of them to go along. I think that makes sense. But again when you think about him trying to have a bipartisan approach to this at the same moment, just a few minutes earlier in the day, if you can imagine They're voting on impeaching his predecessor or removing his predecessor who's already out of office very tough for him to sort of thread that needle and get bipartisanship in one moment, and that really contentious partisanship. On the other hand, I think he is really got. He's really in a difficult position on the stimulus package, and I do think the stepped approaches is the way to go. But I do think it's going to end up with a watered down bill. At this point. We'll do you think we're going to hear that tomorrow cause he's promised he's going to give us his stimulus proposal tomorrow. Do you think you might say I'm going to do into two tranches, as they say in the business? You know, I think he may say that or you know, I can't. I'm not sure he knows the system so well, I'm not sure if he's gonna say push for everything at once, knowing that it's hard to go back. But it is possible that he will say in an effort to bring at least the moderate Republicans along. This is the way we have to do it. So I think like everybody, I'm gonna be waiting to hear how he does this, But this is a massive by a to least based on what we're hearing already. Ah, massive package that he wants to put forward and just to go back to the all powerful Joe Manchin again we heard from him. That he still is not willing or ready to go up to that $2000. So he's already facing pull back from moderates. And so that's going to be a challenge for him. And he knows that going into tomorrow. Okay? Thank you. So much. Always great to have you with us.

We are not willing to target the American companies.
