Twitter powered by more than twenty seven hundred journalists and analysts in more than one hundred twenty countries I'm Susanna Palmer this is Bloomberg this is the balance of power with David Westin rumored radio still to come this hour we talked to New Jersey governor Phil Murphy but first perhaps president trump's signal achievement of his first term was the conference of cut in taxes for corporations and for individuals but did the tax cuts go too far or for that matter not far enough I pose those questions two Americans for tax reform president Grover Norquist well where we didn't go as far as we would have liked with the corporate rate was taken to twenty one percent from thirty five the highest in the world down to twenty one which which in the middle of Europe when you add in our state and local income taxes up towards twenty five of the present one to go to fifteen percent at the federal level I still think we ought to do that look for the present Republicans if they have the ability to do so after the next election to go to a fifteen percent corporate rate we didn't make the expensing for new investment permanent was only good for five years that needs to be made permanent and on the small business level we went very close to getting small businesses passed through see corporate as corporations the same tax rate as larger C. corporations but we need to take the the amount of money you exempt from about twenty percent to twenty five percent to get more equity for smaller pastor corporations to go over the the stated rationale certainly for the expansion of capital investment and also to some extent for the reduction corporate taxes was to increase capital best but it went out for a while and they came right back down again perhaps because of uncertainty over trade didn't really accomplish what people promised it would well it it didn't in the long run absolutely you saw a lot of money come in from overseas use also American corporate earnings brought back but as the head of the apple said look we we brought back ninety billion ninety billion we're gonna bring it all back but right now we're not moving it from a bank in London because it no longer matters whether we keep our money in a bank in London or a bank in Topeka Kansas because there's no tax activity when we bring the money back so in effect all of American corporate earnings overseas our American earnings now they're available to be invested in the United States at a moment's notice no tax barrier anymore I think you're quite right that some of this slowdown from a three percent growth to two percent is because we have a great deal of uncertainty on the dealings with China and with Europe on international trade will go over has your portfolio expanded its for tax reform Americans and protection form our terms anything other than a tax I mean should we we were forming the terrible pro to the trump administration absolutely terrible our taxes for most of American history the number one tax that people pay wise the terror of we had a war with Europe over the paraffin our independence battle South Carolina called out its National Guard in the eighteen thirties because of the national terror the turf was a big part of the civil war I mean terrorists have long been a very powerful factor in American history we need to bring them down I understand the president's arguments about getting trying to stop stealing our intellectual property I'm just not sure tariffs are the best way to punish China they also punish American consumers were talking with Grover Norquist of Americans for tax reform Grover I know what you feel about the income tax where their personal or corporate were you an use taxes because even president Reagan really increasing use taxes and so for example if we're looking for the proposals from the democratic and present because they're proposing things like a financial transaction tax which is essentially a use tax were you and issues like that well if you're actually on the gasoline tax to build roads right now a lot of that money is siphoned off into transit a lot of that money is siphoned off into the general budget if you were actually using the gasoline tax to build roads and bridges you could make the argument that the use tax has some value words target but eight excise tax because you drink beer it's not a use tax jumping in for it is an excise tax it's a tax on the product unless there's a benefit from the government you pay gasoline taxes they build roads it's just another way to raise taxes on people and it sometimes they do that in order to give yourself how we should do this because we're punishing bad people who drink soda pop what what what what what what the financial transaction tax taxes or is that more like gasoline tax because in fact there is a lot of investment that supports the financial markets right here in New York City or is it more like an excise tax on beer it's an excise tax is just a way to get more money and I think that what you would do is chase trading away from the United States away from New York I think it's a it's a it's a terrible idea the taxes are too high we don't need to look for new ways to raise revenue what we do need to do is how to reform government so that it costs last how to fix our entitlements we can't possibly pay for the entitlements we have now even with tax increases we can't make that work and certainly can't pay for the additional entitlements some of the democratic candidates are talking about if they were to be elected president thanks to Americans for tax reform president.

Millions of dollars to have done to see if there was any crime committed. Okay. So then did they not get the memo that was very public? That said we couldn't find anything. Oh, okay. It's just this. Yeah. We're waiting until next year. Yeah. Okay. Because you know, when you're when you're when you're having to produce proof. And then when you get it, and you wanna hold it close because you don't want anyone to know believe that. So here we are talking about Russia said Volve meant in our elections. Okay. Supposed-? And so these congressmen I one is my own and he's such an embarrassment. But this Bill is commonsense measure will help our country understand the breadth of actions undertaken by Russian agents to drive our alliances apart. We don't want that. We don't want your alliances to be driven apart. We don't we don't have that. You know, we need to build America. That's what it should be called anyone manipulating election reeks, and we'll be dealt with. I don't know yada, yada, yada. But we need we need to police ourselves on that matter. Are you kidding? We have a caller, but go caller, welcome to the show. I can't believe this. A world K to go down to Israel and other foreign countries, and do whatever we want their lectures, but don't do the job. Yeah. Don't do it to us. And we're only proposing that you're doing there's actually no. Well, we just we just want you to do it. Because we've got to blame somebody blame someone. I haven't I don't get to listen to you all the time. So I don't know if you've covered the subject, but you're talking about the Jerome Powell interview on sixty minutes.

The only other time any Federal Reserve guys ever gotten out actually given an interview on ATV show was in the middle of the crisis in two thousand nine. Oh, yeah. Yeah.

What's what happened? Yeah. So to any highlights or should be aware of now that you brought it up not really the highlight was why they were even asked why? And it was just to let people know how good things are. Everything's gone. Okay. We got some little worries about some things, but he's all gonna be all right? Hide your wallet? Oh my God. And Powell also notified everybody on sixty minutes that the president can't fire him. Oh, yeah. Yeah. That's point. Yeah. He appoints them once they're in the office. They can't be removed or we don't think they can. Understandable. That's okay. No. But isn't it? The he's reminding everyone of that that's kind of interesting, but go ahead. Yeah.

In in a much better place than they were five years ago. Would it be great to have a go now trae conflict with the US Olympic anybody else? I'm never be one from westerly will be a new a madman new Bloomberg daybreak on Bloomberg radio. Good morning from London. I'm Anna Edwards and from the German finance capital of Frankfort. I'm Matt Miller. Yes. Matt Miller, of course, says de de come to Frank fat. Because of the b we'll talk more about that shortly. Matt, let's check the markets. We do that every fifteen minutes, of course, on Bloomberg radio. The stock six hundred down by three tenths of one percent. US futures have been pointing downwards three months of this morning. So it looks as if we can continue to check all those concerns about global growth that hit US equities yesterday and then played the Asian session. MCI Asia-Pacific down by half of the cents overnight as a European equities as I say down three tenths the first one hundred down by around half a percent the tax down four terms. The cat down four tenths of it. Seems it's pretty broad base. This sell off that we're seeing across the European equities in terms of the sectors being here's no surprises that it. Some of those great stories said basic resources, autos and auto parts industrial goods all trading lower. We're not necessarily seeing a flight into the havens, you might expect. So healthcare is also down by around six tenths of one percent. And we've also got X dibs in the basic resources space. So that likes of Rio and be HP now trading without the rights to the to the dividend. And so as a result, we see that sector is weaker for a couple of reasons now's the equity story, then let's talk about what we see on the oil price. We are consolidating it seems just about that fifty six dollars a barrel level on WTI fifty six forty two is where we trade up by four tenths of one percent. We continue to balance the stockpiling data out of the United States and the OPEC cut story. We are looking at a US tenure. Guild at two point six eight percents of that's dropped down below the two point seven Mark, which is interesting of goes and the dollar index fairly flat this morning after making some modest gains in recent days, Matt. All right now. Let's get over this morning too. Or are we going to get to Fabio valuable bony to Schwetzingen? I think I. Yeah. I thought I thought I spoke with Fabio. I'm sorry. I'm looking in the in the wrong script here. This is the difficulty of doing radio show from the road. I've got to I've got to rely on a whole bunch of other. Next to me. Maybe I should bring her into the conversation was on with us on Bloomberg television earlier, and she was managing director for global macro and European economics at CS lumber. Have you once again, she gives you you start. You told us on Bloomberg TV about your expectations for the c b let's let's go through these different points. I suppose one by one let's not with the global growth estimates and inflation estimates not global sorry. European growth and inflation estimates that we're going to hear about do you expect them to cut those estimates for two thousand nine hundred twenty twenty. Yes, absolutely. Based on our estimates. The zone would struggle to to grow above one percent. So we're looking at growth of around just just north of one percent for this year. ECB has in the in the macroeconomic projections in December. It's got one point seven percent growth for this year. And roughly there about for next year as well. So clearly there is room for a big downgrade. Their for instance, in the Bloomberg consensus Elway the numbers have come down to one point four percent from two percent when the FX war kicked in and even there we see room for downgrade. So clearly the ECB will have to push push a little behind the cabin. Can we get? I mean, you mentioned the FX were that hasn't been on for a while now and we've seen this incredibly tight range. A why do you think that is better? Why do we see the euro dollar not moving at all lately? I mean, the the dollar yen isn't moved very much either. And be will that change after today? Right. So the war story, I guess the euro is has not really moved much against the dollar, but on a trade weighted basis, it has appreciated by around five percent since since since the FX war kicked in, and that's because of the weakness in emerging market currencies not the least the the Chinese renminbi. So that is weighing on the euro zone competitiveness. And I guess the reason the dollar and the the euro hasn't moved much against the dollar is because there are quite a few conflicting forces at play. For instance, the dollar seems to be quite over in in an overbought territory, and we expect the fed to cut interest rates, but on the euro-zone side, a lot of negativity seems to be gradually getting priced in. So that keeps a floor on the currency. And I guess there are a lot of concerns about the what the ECB will actually deliver. And that's also weighing on sentiment and keeps the floor on on the euro as well. So I guess there are a lot of moving parts that prevents the euro dollar to to find a direction at this point in time. What are you expecting to see on the Tel chose the cheaper loans to the banking sector? Are you expecting them to just hints at what could come today, but not actually deliver? Or do you think we might actually here today about some concrete plans, if the be gives a concrete plan that's a positive markets because I think the expectations as for a proper plan to be delivered later than today. So that would be a positive surprise. But I guess what's more important is the is the structure of the the the breadth of the program and the conditionalities attached to it. So that will determine what sort of boost it gives to market sentiment. But even more important, I think is looking beyond the short-term boost because I think what's important to realize is is that credit easing measures such as Culturas. It's sort of heads banks, meet credit demont if there is credit, and if they're facing credit supply issues, but in the euro-zone what we we are seeing is that is the weakness in demand. That's the main problem it's not as much about credit supply. And that makes us less less optimistic about the positive impact from a measure suggest that sounds like a great question to be asking the CB what you small trails if there isn't the underlying demand for that credit in the euro zone. If that's the slowness of the growth story. Yeah. And maybe I'll pose that. When I go over there at two thirty one thirty UK time Choi to what do you feel like the though is behind the curve because they've been resisting. Kind of fessing up to the sluggishness of the the European economy. And I mean if you look back at their their inflation forecast. It's absolutely ridiculous that they expect reflation to sort of go vertical every single year for like the past four years. Of course, it hasn't happened. Are they using the wrong tools? I mean, what are they done wrong? I guess I've got a still have sympathy for the. Because they are doing whatever is in their mandate or whatever tools are available to them to to get Konami going. But I guess the problem really is not as much with monetary policy. It's more with fiscal policy, and it's more with the political mandate. And I'm sure that behind first of all I want to point out that they have to be sort of outwardly. Bullish the economy, right? It would be horrible. If you're central Bank said, we're going to go intercession and crash, and Secondly, I think behind the scenes they've really been pushing for some fiscal stimulus, and they're just not getting even not even behind you right now. But also, quite vocally. I think. Cold on politicians to support him in his activities. Yep. Absolutely. And going back to your first point. Yes, whenever you look at the economic projections from the be the medium term is for inflation. In particular is always around one point five percent. So close to two percent. The target range. Not talking more about the recent events. I guess if the ec- be did not sound optimistic on growth forecast. It would have found it really difficult to justify the exit from its QE program at this time. So it wasn't a really difficult at a really tough balancing act to do at one on one hand attached to defend why it's ending its QE program and on the on the other hand attached to sound reasonably dovish to prevent unwarranted tightening in markets, and the reason it had to end its Curie parameters. Difficult time is because it was running out of assets to buy. Okay. So that's where it sort of detaches from maybe the the real the growth story a little bit of the inflation the real inflation on the ground. Thank you very much wetter. Thanks for your analysis.

"Every fifteen minutes here on Bloomberg radio and sitting here yesterday at this very time, Marcus, I remember saying that equity markets needed an impetus from growth data or trade or something for the next leg higher. We do get the impetus from global growth, but it pushes equities lower the mood music to a certain extent sort of souring a little bit when it comes to global growth going forward. We're expecting the European Central Bank for one to lower its outlook for yours. Yours own growth going forward. Today ahead of that. We all the socks six hundred starting the session in the red down by two tenths of one percent. The CAC count down by about one tenth of one percent. We're still waiting for an opening figure out of Frankfurt while the for to one hundred is off by three tenths of one percent on a sector-by-sector basis. We're seeing a basic resources. Pardon me telecoms as well as utilities trading to the upside this morning. Absolutely. But of a defensive move here on the downside. We are seeing basic resources. It is the main lagging sector this morning in the US yesterday. We saw equities fall to a three week low. So we got a data on the US trade deficit. We also got some hiring data through General Electric tumbled second day after the CEO's cashflow warning. But overall US equities taking a hit and few futures on the back foot as well. You're seeing NASDAQ futures lower by three tenths of a percent S and P five hundred Emmys down almost three tenths of a percent. Dow futures down by the same as well. In the bull markets the ten year. Treasury yield has been edging lower all week we're fairly steady right now on to sixty nine handle. But look the move in bond markets in Europe was really noteworthy yesterday Marcus talking about the scoop to do with the from Bloomberg. We saw tenure bundles drop we tend ubt peels hit a January low those yields looking at the burns steady right now the ten year BT peeled edges up two basis points to a two sixty one hundred. Yes. So perhaps a little bit of a rebound for. ATP yields this morning when it comes to the currency space. We are seeing the Bloomberg dollar spot index marginally higher. It's the seventh consecutive session that we're seeing the Bloomberg dollar spot index somewhat higher. We are looking at a euro dollar, though ahead of the meeting once again little changed at one spot. Thirteen zero seven also taking starting this morning at one spot thirty one sixty five against the greenback. Back to is little changed. Yeah. You know, it's interesting. Because while we saw those yields move as I was just saying in Europe off the back of ECB scoop from Bloomberg the euro actually ended pretty much unchanged going nowhere today. The question asks, whether if we get any kind of easing or signal of it from the if that could reignite euro volatility who knows in terms of the dollar strength as well. You know, some of these yesterday was down to weakness, for example, from CAD we've seen some AUSSIE dollar weakness recently, it's up a little bit today as well. But as I say, it comes back to that question of the lack of alternatives to the dollar in terms of dollar strength checking on oil as well. We've had two days of losses. We got the. The data. Then we got the old with inventories oil drops for two days. It's bounced back a little today. But right now, WTI dead flat. Fifty-six Twenty-three Brent ever so slightly on the front foot sixty six zero nine now for more on what stocks to watch this morning. Let's bring in Bloomberg's you and pulse.

I asked him directly if they were gonna make a bid for clear channel. Of course, he dodged that. But he did say that they were looking at the US as a growth area in terms of emanate, but they're also looking elsewhere in the world if they're going to stay disciplined on, but they're certainly looking for those opportunities is what he said looking.

"On London D A B digital radio. Yeah. We'll be talking a lot about the European Central Bank. A lot today where you are not a lot of other juicy stories as well today, including a dramatic escalation in hallways row with the United States. But when it comes to the markets, it appears that global growth consent sort of putting a damper on things say I'm looking out over Frankfurt. If for those who've never been to our building here, we're sitting on some some tall floor. Overlooking Deutsche Bank towers and the mountains of Hesse, and there's just this these gray clouds rolling in these big storm clouds, and I think it's so proprio today for the great four euro-area economy. Right exactly expected to cut their forecast. Deeply for both growth and inflation. I'll get to that. In a second right now. The markets are down the topics down about eight tenths of one percent. The hang sang down also about eight tenths of one percent. Little more than that the CSI three hundred down one point two percent. If we look at what the futures trade is telling us, it's also flashing red arrows Dax futures down four tenths percent as our footsie futures right now US futures are down as well. And in terms of other risk indicators, we see investors buying the ten year bonds in the US pushing the yield down to two point six nine percent right now, by the way, the buns are yielding about thirteen basis points that moved a little bit yesterday on our story that the would cut its forecast, you can expect it to move a little today as well. As the euro right now, one thirteen o six unchanged against the dollar. And really it's been in this range for a long time. And the same is true of the yen at almost one twelve it's been in that range for quite a few trading days. Now, the pound at one thirty one eighty one starting to gain a little bit more ground, despite our story that Europe is that the EU is slightly pessimistic right now about the Brexit situation. And we have all at sixty six twelve that's Brent crude the global benchmark, and we see NYMEX WTI also gaining has also gained some ground at right now. Fifty six twenty-seven, Marcus. All right. We're just getting similar corporate lines out on the Bloomberg terminal. Matt Deutsche Post beating when it comes to both of the top as well as the bottom line in the fourth quarter and for the full year fourth quarter revenue six sixteen point nine three billion euros. The estimate was for a sixteen point five five billion euros the four year. Eight bit figured coming in at three point one six billion euros. Also, a smidgen above the estimate. When it comes to the full year dividend per share at Deutsche Post that is coming in at one spot one five euros. The estimate was for one spot one six euro. So a little bit of a disappointment when it comes to the dividend. A red headline also from Standard Bank of South Africa full year. Adjusted EPS is coming in. It's a seventeen point four eight round. The estimate was for sixteen point nine eight eight rand and the full year net income figure out Standard Bank is twenty seven and a half billion, Iran. So couple of corporate headlines that all right? Let's get to the top stories as we've been discussing. I am in Frankfurt because of the European Central Bank releasing its latest policy decision today. Let's get more on what we expect to hear from Bloomberg's Piatra school. Mouse key here. Paeans central Bank officials are poised to cut their economic forecasts on Thursday by enough to justify another round the longer term loans for banks do your area growth. Has suffered from rising protectionism and the OECD on Wednesday urged to signal a delay to interest rate increases president Mario Draghi will be quizzed about the features of the new Bank funding, but the details may not be unveiled until April in Frankfurt, cutting Muskie, Bloomberg daybreak Europe on the back of that. Let's cross over to Singapore to talk about the market for large Wes Goodman from the markets live team joins us now. So west let's kick it off with the then and what the fallout might be as the looks set to cottages growth outlook. What can we expect from euro bonds? Good morning everyone. Pimco had a very interesting report on this saying that Europe is really following Japan and recalled it in Japan. Ten year bonds yield zero percent and the nation is struggling to get its economy going, though, pimco says the same thing may happen in Europe. And according to pimco that means lower yields for longer, maybe even forever. You know, and it's already happening as you mentioned earlier German tenure yields are just thirteen basis points, which is pretty close to zero. So according to pimco, they may stay that low forever. Low rates for longer much longer. I guess if it's forever that we're talking about Qatar sold twelve billion dollars worth of debt. Why are you writing? This is a green light for the bond market similar story to what's happening in Europe. Central banks are turning dovish. We've talked about the, you know, in the US we had the Federal Reserve beige book out yesterday and the fed downgraded its assessment to the economy to the US economy. You know, there are several other central banks turning dovish. So it all it all adds up to unstoppable demand for bonds. The Qatar bonds were relatively high yielding bonds the four the ten year security pays four percent. But in Japan today, there was a strong thirty year sale and that bond only pays zero point six percent. So whether it's a high yielding bond or lower yields are there just seems to be on stoppable demand for for debt that you're keep going. All right on stoppable demand. Thanks, so much Wes Goodman for that for real time market, commentary and analysis. Check out markets live. That's M L V on your Bloomberg tunnel. Thanks, wes. All right. West talking about the the beige book from the Federal Reserve in the US the economy cooled in the first two months of two thousand nineteen. That's what we learn. From the latest beige book report, the fed says growth was quote, slight to moderate New York fed president John Williams says the central Bank can still afford to be patient risks. Just don't seem to be out there right now at all. And so again, suggesting somewhat better that we don't suggesting that we don't need to tighten monetary policy. Maybe as much as I previously thought, and that was New York fed president, John Williams. Meanwhile, the always CD has cut forecasts for world economic growth this year citing trade tensions and political uncertainty in its first reporting over four. Months? The group lowered protections for advanced economies with Europe bearing the brunt of the downgrade Sprague's it also singled out as a persistent threat in the UK. Thank God, we got to Brexit. I thought we would I thought we would never get to it this morning. The UK government is already mapping out. What might happen?

"brussels eu" Discussed on Left, Right & Center
"There's I think some frustration because I think there's a seeming in some places might include Brussels EU institutions amongst this that they should be places areas in which the EU and the United States could work constructively. A good example is China. So here in Germany, there's a very interesting change happening right now. Traditionally China has been seen as opportunity to Germany's exports a huge new market. Now, there's growing concern about things like industrial espionage. And there's room is that while they might be banned from from building the five G network here. Now, there are obviously lots of similar concerns in the United States as well about reciprocity of marketaxess. Now, these not to the European Union the United States should be. Working together on this to tackle this issue. But instead there is each other's throats because they have their own trade dispute going on there have been some very heated Stoltze between these trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom and robot lighthizer, the US trade Representative in Washington recently because this issue is now becoming such a stumbling block in relations in transatlantic relations. It makes it that much harder to the Europeans and the Americans to work together on the streets weather should see eye-to-eye Korea on the security side of that relationship. Obviously some of the ways that the president talks about NATO are highly unusual and a real break with with past American presidents. But one thing that you did hear from past presidents was that that European countries were not spending enough on their own defense that they should be stepping up more in terms of their military spending is a silver lining of this that some of that is happening that Europe is looking at at the US as a potentially unreliable partner, and one of the things that they're saying is that they do need to shoulder more of their own military defense burden. Yeah. That's funny. It is kind of a silver lining that the United States is now so unreliable to the countries who pledged to defend each other that they are. So scared that we won't show up when they need us that they are starting to do more. But if you track very carefully the increases in European defense spending. They start going up after the Russian invasion of Ukraine that the seizure of Crimea, the invasion of the dumb best and eastern Ukraine is when European start getting nervous and start reinvesting. It actually predates. Donald Trump's arrival. Your other point is exactly right. Every American president has always thought that Europeans should do more. There minutes from national Security Council meetings in nineteen fifty six in which Dwight Eisenhower as president and John Foster Dulles as secretary of state are bemoaning the. Fact that the NATO idea has probably run its course because Europeans just don't want to defend themselves. Tom is there a sense in Europe that, you know, win the Trump administration ends whether that's two years from now six years from now five months from now, whatever that is that there's an ability to go back to the way the relationship was before are they looking at the changes in US behavior as an oddity of this president or are they looking at it as a permanent change in the US posture. I think that's a really good question. My feeling is in most places. Most governments are probably waiting slash hoping that we will have a return to something like the status quo ante, and there isn't assumption that because Trump's approval ratings are so low that he will probably get tossed from office at the next election. If the if congress doesn't get to him first that said, I think there was a ceiling in in some circles that the old certainties the old guarantees that the transatlantic relationship. Is foundation of the liberal, which is the basis for everything. That's wonderful the nice and happy world that Europeans constructed for themselves. There's a feeling that that may not come back, or at least it may not come back in precisely the same form as we knew it four off rule. Trump won election in the United States on an America. First message vowing to fix bad trade arrangements. He pulled out of the Paris climate deal..
