"There were done and they knew there were none. He was going to enhance the division and distrust in our society appealing to those people that would eventually become known as his base to say. Look your government lied. News bush ally do the republicans. Line you and obama's the father vices say no more we need a new president clinton clean at all. I'm glad you brought that up. Because he also used that issue that wedge issue as you call it to activate base in domestic issues as well even though somehow he was able to have the language of war on tara and is perceived enemies at home relate to protesters took to the streets after the murder of george floyd. Now that's connective. Tissue is hard to come by our great national wound. Race has opened up once again. Police killing of george foy spark a massive wave of protests. People demand justice. George boyd and call for an end to racial inequality people. We talked to said that the black lives matter. Protests was just the opportunity. Donald trump wanted to bring the language and the actions of the war on terror. Home he militarized police forces. He encouraged the national guard out there. He encouraged tough responses his language others called radical islamic terrorists. He made that into antifa. Same word. same intensity just about a war here. On the streets of america it was calculated. It was determined and it was forceful and in some important way. It was a fitting migration that we'd been following all the way through the film as we made it or of the things that we were. Learning and the distrusted was building. Now here it was now it was polarized. Now there were people many of them in military garb many of them former military who had now having watched all of the diminishment of america across the twenty years from whether it was weapons of mass destruction lies or Grave or just on and on and on he had people who could agree and be as one person told us us weaponized in this argument over black lives matter and and there you have it. The war had finally come home. That is so profound to think about the work coming home and as it relates to january sex from january six till now one of the things i wanted you to explore with me is biden's big decision to leave afghanistan. Have the symbolism of that in the legacy. We're leaving behind their will. Here's of president biden. who is vice-president. During obama's time really was given the war iraq and the war against it so he knew he was part of all torture long assure middle of the night conversations about what to do about both of these places in a way in political terms just purely in political terms now leaving land of. What is the moral thing to the right thing. Long-term thing to do just in pure political terms. He was giving cover as the newly elected president because trumpet had wanted to get out of afghanistan and was willing to do any kind of a deal including negotiating with the taliban even though we had a government we had propped up there and we were encouraging and a military were paying for by signing an agreement coming to an agreement with the taliban that promise that we would be out by may first trump. This sounds too casual. it's not as catalyst but it was political cover for biden in the sense that it gave him out he could say going with what america and previous american president is cited. Was the right thing to do. I think he had decided that is biden the people around him so they had decided we had to get out of there. This time to end america's longest war. It's time for american troops to come home. We were never going to win. We're just going to be continuing quagmire. They did understand that there was going to be real carnage that women girls and afghanistan revenue being under sharia law. It's a moment very quickly. That life in afghanistan we tried to prop up financially culturally and lots of other ways was about to change dramatically by pulling out an effect biden. Was saying we're no longer gonna even mow the lawn. We're just gonna get out of there. And when he did that he used as political cover. What trump had done before him. Obviously he didn't know what was going to happen as a result of it. And i gather they made the calculation that it could handle whatever. The bad news was that came from afghanistan. We'll see whether it has any effect politically on him. Now thank you so much. Make for your thoughts and your thumb.

"We can get through the minefield that is dating. I'm definitely not qualified to be giving advice. Let's face it. I'm single shifted dating. But hopefully you'll find it funny interesting and maybe decide. Hello and welcome to our first podcast. I'm phil and today. I'm joined by liz who runs the blog might date free year this week. We will be talking about the importance of taking a break from dating. And why highlights and welcome to the show firstly. I want to say a massive. Thank you for being my first guest. Narrative is a real pleasure to be on. Thank you for having me my date for year. Tell me a little bit and by yourself and why is all about okay. Well i'm less. I'm thirty four. No kidding it sounds like a by say might take for you basically evolved. Because i was totally sick of dating. I'd been in a long term relationship. We break up last summer. I think this is probably a fairly familiar story. And in a bid to prove to yourself that there are in fact. Plenty more fish in the sea. I joined up dating apps and got swiping and then about seven months later i honestly felt like oh my god. I just cannot do this anymore. I re stop playing. Yeah this is this is not working. Something about what is going on here is not working for me a in finding anyone which to be fair at that point. I wasn't even sure. I wanted to do and be just the entire experience of it was getting a little bit tiresome so i thought about taking a break and actually i'd been watching. Tv so called. The cabins identified. Anyone see next terrible. Recommended auto is about dating. It is another one. I tv too. Yeah where they set people and put them in the middle of nowhere. And i think i was one episode and then like that's infamy traffic tally. There was a go. You mentioned that she had just taken the total break from dating for for a year and like how much it helped her. And i had this moment of like. Oh okay so that's interesting and i just thought about it some more and actually it just massively appealed. Because i'm kind of an oil. Nothing person like i say to myself on today in moderation but i know myself well enough by now. Today would just snap happen. Wouldn't thing so. I thought okay wh- i set myself like a challenge because i know i can stick to something if i set myself to charlie and i'm awfully stubborn as i make into a sing and have something to keep myself accountable to or probably be more likely to stick to it. I also was massively influenced by the book. The unexpected joy of being single. And if you've read it it's by catherine greig. Everybody who's single needs to read. This book is amazing. And she's kind of her point in the book. Is that in society. We view singleness as a problem to be fixed or like an unnatural state of being like the the default good position is being in a couple and in a couple fix it. And i yeah that that's pretty fair. I have been kind of taking that approach sedating even though i would say i'm really happy being by myself and i thought actually what if i just cold turkey it and do a wave going new. I'm fine by myself. I'm not looking for somebody. Take a total break and use it. I know people always say like focus on yourself and it's become one of those like cleats i think but it's exists. No you focus on you and yeah yeah thought thinking amongst is which for or just sounds like but today i thought what would happen if i just stopped chasing anything but kinda wanted to think about. What can i learn about myself if i take away. Everybody else's voice. Because i think that's a big thing for me about dating. Is i started to feel like the like when you're texting people particularly when you're texting more than one person. Is it filtering noisy for me. Like i was constantly being barraged by messages and it got very loud very repetitive. As well it seems like early. Hi how are you. Hi how are you. And then. I got a walks up to the weekend over. Walk you start on february the fourteenth with this year valentine's day our was because i'm guessing that was the first phone lines day since breaking you partner the like been single for the past seven years. Yeah yeah how was. It was a k. Actually i am. I live by myself and i have a support bubble. Here is my best friend. He's amazing and we're both single so actually. She came over on valentine's day and we had like a nice dinner and some and wine and just kind of hung out with each other indeed. Go stuff so it was fine. I didn't feel lonesome. But i would say that i had like an. Oh shit. what kind of kind of moment. Where i thought. Wow a year is a really long time on the first week actually was was a big task because it was a really about breaking habits and the amount of times i went to pick up my phone to tech somebody and like oh no no. I completely agree. The phone has fundamental part of everybody's life as soon as you wake up phone and before you go to sleep in his breaking the habit of. Oh i've got a message or oh and ping notifications even the anticipation of a message as well. I think i had got to the point where you know when even if you haven't gawping you're thinking about what you're going to get a ping on the that whole are they gonna miss me back. Are they not. Oh it's been two and a half hours since they lost replied or other for Finding this a bit much like all of that kind of mental energy. I just didn't have any animal. No i totally agree.

L. S. investments joining me here in the Bloomberg interactive brokers studio in New York pleasure to have you on the program let's begin with US China trade war how maddening is it for a person that has to put money to work in markets to a truck tried to achieve some type of decent return believe it or not it probably is easier because we focus on the long term I think it's much more maddening for day traders are people that are really looking for these real small moves into day because we focus on the long term we tell people to look take a longer term view in terms of look at the fundamentals of the of the marketing valuations and right now on the market the US market looks like it's expensive there are places that we think there are better opportunities particularly overseas so we do like the international markets right more right now that we do the domestic markets and in terms of the noise as best you can just try to just look at it as noise because we don't know exactly how this is going to get resolved if it'll get resolved and we just try not to take off we take a much longer term view on it well give got those more attractive valuations abroad rather than that in the U. S. for their high for reason surely in and that is it the global slowdown is affecting everywhere X. U. S. in other words in why not keep the money in the U. S. it acts like a haven of the moment well we are global so it's not like we're avoiding the U. S. we actually have a decent chunk in the US but we look at it there are still more compelling valuations vertically in emerging markets when you look at Europe we know that the economic data has been really really poor so that would be a place that maybe we would have less focus on but in the emerging markets I I think look a lot more attractive for evaluation standpoint so are there themes here or is it so company specific you have to talk about a particular company you can't really kind of blow it open and talk about general trends well we definitely we are very big on things and our our biggest thing right now domestically has been on even at all all of a globally has been on value we do like value not necessarily all parts of value but like if you look at financials health care staples and utilities we think those are places that have been representing some value right now so we have been much more of a value investor which has not been a great place to be over the last ten years but if you look at how it's done actually in the last month and a half and even in two thousand and nineteen particularly when you look at the financial sector value hasn't been so bad finances are up of about twenty percent year to date the earnings of come out from financial companies JP Morgan bank America this morning have been pretty good Goldman Sachs their numbers weren't great but if you look at how the stock performed it it gave it back in the morning and then rebounded by the end of the day so we think financials are are not a bad place to hang out right now that gives us a nice point to jump off from in terms of talking about the fed in the interest rate scenario today with the retail sales number that we got the markets now eager that we're going to get you know eager to begin discounting a quarter point cut at the meeting at the end of this month where do lower rates kind of enter your thinking I mean is that going to be support of war as it may be that the fact that rates coming down not necessarily a good indicator of where we're headed we can talk more about that with mark Pfeffer.

"The hour it was the first day of the final quarter and that became risk off after some a week eco data we've got a stronger yen not surprisingly one oh seven seventy four and some weakness in Nikkei futures the Chicago contract twenty one thousand seven ten so we're roughly a hundred and seventy points below where we were at the cash market yesterday in Tokyo will have more as we continue on daybreak Asia time now for the morning call Catherine Greig filled is here she is a reporter for Bloomberg macro squawk so it it begins with that I assume number doesn't it absolutely it was all about the data today stocks fell after I send manufacturing hit a ten year low the S. and P. close one point two percent lower and the Dow fell one point three percent treasuries rallied after the report with ten year yields falling to one point six three percent in currencies the dollar fell from a two year high dollar yen drops three tenths of a percent to one oh seven spot seven four coming up Japan will give an update on consumer confidence and Hong Kong reports retail sales from the macro squawk desk I'm Katie price all right thank you so much Katie we have the market in Hong Kong back online later today after a holiday yesterday mainland Chinese markets will remain closed for holidays and markets in India also closed as well nineteen past the hour let's get an update on global news mark mills is in the Bloomberg news remark don't think US China celebrated the seventieth anniversary of communist rule protesters and police battled across Hong Kong and some of the most serious clashes since widespread unrest began in June with a demonstrator shot by police for the first time Republican lawmakers are harshly criticizing the Chinese Communist Party drawing a sharp contrast with president trump congratulatory message to president she's in pain Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the occasion should serve as a reminder of the many millions of lives lost under Chinese communist rule North Korea and the United States have agreed to resume. clear negotiations this weekend following a months long stalemate over the withdrawal of sanctions in exchange for disarmament secretary of state Mike Pompeii and the chairman of three house committees traded barbs today as the lawmakers pressed for several state department employees to testify in the impeachment enquiring E. global news twenty four hours a day on Erin a tech talk on Twitter powered by more than twenty seven hundred journalists and analysts in more than one hundred twenty countries I'm mark mills this is Bloomberg rescue thank you very much in the way back with our guests for this half hour Margie Patel managing directed wells capital management much you talking about to the dangers of by the United States going to recession which is just as good something that if the economy will be avoiding that but it doesn't look as the the bets are off now for the global economy. no I think again that we have seen the easing of monetary authorities around the world so I think that too will have a little bit of that benefit in about six months from now but no doubt about it many emerging market countries are in a recession going to enter a recession and I think U. S. growth will be slow you can't really change that probably one and a half two percent something like that reflecting the slowdown in the non consumer sectors of the economy. just a quick news slash here from Japan's Coast Guard that North Korea appears to have launched a missile we'll follow this story and update you as soon as we get more information Margie it it might be a coincidence but it is there much in it that yesterday was the first day of a week long day of holiday for China and you didn't have any of those buyers in the markets. it's hard to really say how much of an impact that is I think the market you can see the market wants to go down a little bit I think at the margin there's no new good news to drive the market higher while waiting for earnings there's all this uncertainty over trade so I think the market just flops around with the downward slide for the next probably the rest of the month actually yeah I mean it's sort of tempting to say as we did a few moments ago that it was all about the data today but might just be the trigger for some underlying tensions tensions of which you know we haven't seen really expressed very vividly in the market we were always asking the question is this complacency or is it the you know the resilience of the market tensions like the US China trade war Hong Kong Briggs it in such. well that's true and you who knows we may have seen the peak of the Chinese power prestige economic growth of the seventies bursary and it was it may be something we look back on and say well they looked you know like answer passable and look what's happened in the intervening years but I think when you look at returning to U. S. it looks as if we should be able to slog along have positive growth even if we do have short term negatives from autos aircraft capital goods which is what we're saying. yeah much emerges will give you we we look at what's going on and you have to do this as well of course is a portfolio manager and that of course lends itself to me asking you how do you position yourself I mean you can follow the crowd and the thing is that always Babs that leads to safety but what are you looking at Terry speaking which is away from the rest of the the hood as it were. well basically looking for US centric company which have most of their sales in the U. S. and also for growth companies that look as if they have sustainable growth out there a lot of companies that have appeared to be gross companies very very hot keys but maybe that growth will be sustainable so that's really what we're trying to look at this company second floor along stored greaser earnings cash flow every year and and keep in mind if we don't have a recession there's no reason why yearning should shouldn't advance and every single recession we've had has been precipitated by fed tightening they seem to have gotten the message from the market they're going to be the market's friend rather than the markets at the Seri so that's why I think will continue to have the market do better and specially when you look at the alternative treasury rates compares the standard poor's dividend itself you know it's as if the returns like the modest from stocks but still better than what we give to risk free and I think no recession in sight. yeah I I was I think a lot of investors probably worry about whether or not there's too much water under the bridge on a couple of issues one is Hong Kong for instance even if they make some concessions here I mean the cat's out of the bag in one sense and with the US China trade war a lot of companies in moving out of China move out of their optimal optimum positioning with with getting things done there into other markets and so you wonder whether or not you kind of can turn the clock back once any kind of deal is done. well yes because once companies decide is in their interest to be more flexible when they're sourcing they won't go back they won't change and we may see some slow growth while companies decide where they want without holding one.

So the two don't really stack up, but there's a lot of drivers and markets right now. And I think we're seeing traders to try to digest those different factors with money market funds yielding around two point two percent cash is growing more attractive for some Bloomberg fixed income, reporter, Wes Goodman. I think you'd have to be pretty brave to call an end to the bond rally just based on, you know, the sort of handful of metrics were seeing, but by many measures sponsor getting very expensive. So they may start to lose some appeal man as yields rebound this morning. The rate on ten year notes is at two point two six percent as the inversion between three month and ten year yields deepens, Morgan Stanley, CEO, James Gorman says it's a delicate time for financial markets. He spoke exclusively to Bloomberg in Beijing bids concerning the ten years in Germany, did I mean it shows just how anxious the markets are. And there's more news to be anxious about than there has to be positive about Yeltsin Germany fell just shy of a record low from two thousand sixteen as U S China trade tensions spark concern about the global economy. Still Gorman sees the slide in yields and stocks as just a short term issue, saying, there's a good chance, Washington and Beijing resume negotiations. I think this is going to devolve into, you know, as a betting man into a full trade. No, I don't because there's too much self interest in keeping this thing on the rails, Morgan Stanley CEO James Gorman, says market sentiment is fragile right now. But that could change if talks get back on track. You can see some of that fragile sentiment in Asia with stocks mostly lower in today's session.

Bloomberg news has learned China's putting purchases of US soybeans on hold state grain buyers. I have not received orders to continue a so-called, goodwill buying and don't expect that to happen, given the lack of green in trade talks back here in the US, one wanna communist under consideration for a seat at the Federal Reserve is questioning the value of the central banks dual mandate, Judy Shelton tells Bloomberg, she isn't convinced the goals of maximum appointment, stable prices and moderate interest rates are relevant for the fed. I think the fed is going through a period of introspection its own inflation targeting approach is not achieving results at thought the models aren't working the way that, that central bankers would have been -ticipant. It'd they're targeting inflation missing. The target even defining stable prices in a way, that I'm not sure everyone would agree Shelton and a wide ranging interview with Bloomberg revealed an interest in challenging some fundamental notions of mainstream monetary policy. I think the fed should be open. And I think is increasingly open to new ways of a working new mechanisms, and maybe even taking a look at its own record and deciding. And how it could do better. Judy Shelton has not been nominated to the fed, but is one of a handful of names. The White House is weighing for two vacancies at the central Bank, turning into corporate news.

"catherine greig" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Jonathan Ferrell Kevin up on the program. Another government shutdown on the horizon talks have a funding for border security breaking down a March deadline fast approaching US officials lighthizer Mnuchin heading to Beijing to talk, right and Chinese markets. Reopening following a one week holiday. Chinese equities rallying live from. The Bloomberg interactive brokers studios here in New York City this Monday morning. Good morning to you features are positive by a quarter of one percent after we squeezed out these smolder stiff gains, the S and P five hundred last week, and he FX market lookout king dollar the dollar index rallying for an eighth straight day, the longest daily winning streak going back almost two years for the dollar in the FX market this morning, the dollar stronger. Once again, the euro self that by about a tenth of one percent. The Japanese yen showing some weakness to this. I'm so glad you mentioned this. I miss this dollar strong. Ninety six point seven. It is a big deal. And amid all of that we have this yield story going lower lower lower ten year. Treasury owes just a little bit higher on the session. But lower of the last couple of weeks rapper basis points to two point six four percent on a ten year a two year notes home you'll yield two point four six seven percent. I think the story of the week not so much the dollar, but just this slow grind lower in core government bond yields and not just treasuries Tom burns as well. Yeah. I mean, I mean, the boons is what you and I have been watching says Davos point one zero seven point zero nine point one zero. I get it. But the disinflation is out there's tangible. Why don't you bring a doctor man who's who's really fabulous on this continental disinflation joining us from London, formerly the chief economist of the CD and currently these CitiGroup global chief economist good, monitor Catherine we are pricing out global growth, and we are seemingly pricing down inflation expectations as well. Your thoughts on that. Well, I mean, you know, if growth comes in dramatically slower than than you would expect inflation to to come in slower as well. But I do think that we we have to remember that the domestic economies in the form of tight labor markets. This is true for the United States in spades. It's also true in Europe, many of those academies have tight labor markets. They do have resilient consumption, and we are seeing wages rise both in the US and in. In Europe, and Japan. And so, you know, what you have there if you have nominal wages rising, and you have prices not coming through with any top line inflation, then you get real wage increases. And that's actually pretty good for the workers. So from a markets perspective, Catherine I'm always trying to work out whether element of surprise might come from the boat to stack to the one side so to speak. Do you think some people have gravitated too much to the one side of the boat calling for lower growth pricing at inflation in an economy here in America where things still look pretty good? Well, I think the issue is that we've got as I say this domestic resilience comes from very strong labor markets, but we have there's undeniable trade trade headwinds, and the real question is can those trade headwinds be be dampened be resolved before there's permanent damage to investor psyche. And and following through that to to consumers as well. I mean, I think there's there's still time there is still time to get resolution at two. Revive trader and to to support global growth. But, but you know, the time is running out for that. What you're saying Richard Cleridas, saying John Farrow had mentioned Steve Stanley Amherst Pierpont among others is there's a two part GDP calculation one is a domestic resiliency, many, others, all this international noise. What's our history of escaping? The international noise to Clarita would say a solid outcome. Well, the US has more is is a is a larger economy, it's more closed economy. And so it is. Less buffeted by the external environment, but as compared to for example, European economies or or Japan, but you know, it it's it's not a good idea to be complacent and to say that there's no feedback loop from slowing global economy back to the US. That's that's a complacency to say with that the US is a closed economy, and and can whether the whether the trade storms it can't. Because a lot of US companies are outwardly there. They're out outwardly engaged. They get a lot of profits and sales from the foreign marketplace. And so if the global economy is not doing well, those companies in the US will not do. Well, those are the companies that are part of the S and P and part of the you know, the. The Dow and so you'll have financial markets reacting to a slowdown in global markets. Even if part of the US is still very strong. So you get a financial market situation where that turbulence on Wall Street reflecting global slowdown in a trade war that feeds into the domestic economy. You can't you can't completely escape that in a closed economy like the USO, Catherine to your point the mechanism for the feedback. Loop is financial markets. How important is the FX channel with the tallest showing some renewed strength of the last week or so well, so the when we think about the challenges of of the dollar strength. The issue there becomes how are emerging markets in particular, but but markets in general going to be able to handle debt surface debt-service of dollar denominated debt. Because of course, he gets more expensive to service that dollar denominated debt. And if they're servicing the debt, then then they're not going to be able to be supporting. Their own growth. And so that is further headwind for a number of the economies around the world. Dr man, if we could move over to the domestic economy and something, you know, we mentioned this on television. Roy is warning which is scale every time a corporate officer brings up the free scale. I think of Catherine, ma'am, folks. And you're you don't mince any words, Dr man, you say it's not the more the monopoly are we heading towards monopolistic tendencies. I think it's a little premature to say that we're headed towards monopoly tendencies. But, but I do think that there's been a lot of mergers and acquisitions in the over the last ten years when when funding was cheap and stock market was high, and you know, that it, and it's not just an Amazon effect. It's also think about it. And in the intermediate space, whether it be chemicals, whether it be, you know. Agricultural space, but also in some top line spaces, for example, you know, hotels kids have been used you correctly state. This is about scale. Yeah. Joys ends up being a lower labor a lower labor component. Well, so yeah. Because what happens is they say the research we used to worry about scale, and we used to worry about monopolies because we thought well you'd become Annapolis. And then you raise your prices, but these days the research is much more clear that that rather than raise prices. The the consequence of of of scale consequence of of maybe not scale, but the consequences of of less competition is is the burden is on workers because they can't change jobs to get to get higher wages, so wage compression is the consequence of of less competition, Catherine Greig to catch up with you. Joining us from London today, formerly chief economist of the CD and now the city group global chief economist, Tom. Kane. How many times have we use the phrase this morning? The clock is ticking. The clock is ticking cookies and the clock is ticking dance with mosh first deadline trade, but I'm just wondering how firm deadline that is for those just catching up the zeitgeist shifted yesterday afternoon. I'm going to say four PM, maybe it was fine pm. Late yesterday afternoon with a combination of the dawning awareness that the shutdown thing is a lot more real John than the last time you and I saw a different clock. Right. It's a different clock. And then you've got the Bronx o'clock with what a set of six headlines out ten minutes ago. We're looked at the jumble of headlines, and basically no one's moved one iota of an inch over the last ten days. And again that gets to that Clark is ticking thing, then you got the NAFTA thing, which I don't fully understand. I mean, I don't I still don't even say the new phrase. I am CA. I mean, even that. I am a fan of trying to keep up with the zeitgeist. And what I'd say for a morning listeners across America zeitgeist shifted yesterday afternoon. I'm not convinced. There is a hard deadline for the trade discussions between the United States and China. I haven't noticed that. There is one I told watch March I and the clock is ticking down towards the March. I talked to a China expert eighty minutes ago. She said why is China incentivized to change? Hundreds of years of just patients waiting. There are reports in Axial. So the Chinese president is arranging a meeting perhaps in Florida next month with president Donald. But maybe not maybe yes, maybe, you know. The difficulty whatever they agree is the enforcement mechanism that that Mr. lighthizer with like ambassador light is when I don't know how strong that enforcement mechanism obey accepting the Chinese will be of it. My experiences that takes quarters years to implement. I mean, it doesn't happen and the Cup of coffee that certain of our leaders are. But there it is. I mean, my major thing this weekend was MRs keen turned to me and said is all they do is watch soccer all weekend. You enjoyed it. Don't like I enjoy fits and starts Mench. Manchester city. Chelsea was real gang beverage of my choice. The bartender at a John writing tattoo of Preston. Before the program began delivered a wonderful story about that. Now.
