P. P. bond rate that number of masks and gowns and gloves that we use each day had gone through the race and has has been described the supply chain had completely dried up hospitals counties in states across the country were running out at the special protective gear and there was no more to be had overseas manufacturing had been diverted to other hot spots like Italy our national stockpile was enacted in adequate and quickly depleted we internally had not ramped up our U. S. production in time we were told by the US centers of disease control to use bandannas when we ran out of mass and to be clear Pendennis have no utility in the healthcare setting without this essential put an adequate PP frontline workers like all of us who are joining today were unable to protect ourselves from being impacted as a result over the last two months I have the innumerable colleagues across the country who have been infected by Kobe nineteen many have been hospitalized and some have died now in emergency medicine we are used to doing without every single day emergency departments across this country have our finger in the dike of the broken American health care system but nothing had prepared us for content nineteen almost overnight R. Edie's were full of really sick patients for whom we have few treatments are patients were alone no visitors were allowed we healthcare workers were scared both in getting sick ourselves and our patients because of the shortages of TP we couldn't sit at their bedsides and hold their hands in because of lack of scientific knowledge and lack of supplies we often conceive that we began running out of not just PPP but also other essential supplies basic medicines like the ones we used to be a patient on a ventilator basic supplies like the plastic spacers that we use to administer albuterol treatments for asthma or wheezing we were operating with levels of supplies and facing ethical dilemmas about who to give treatment to you that we would never normally tolerate in the United States as a result many of us on the front lines called B. and didn't like we were on our own in the secondary trauma from this experience is only just beginning to be felt personally I'm frustrated and exhausted on behalf of my colleagues we are seeing higher levels of burnout anxiety sleeplessness depression PTSD and.

And we thank you very much. Dave Wilson following those American depositary receipts. Again, recapping here the Dow higher by twenty six point one percent s&p lower by point four percent. Nasdaq down point six percent, I'm Charlie Pellett. And that's a Bloomberg business flash. Thank you, Charlie. Well, let's talk about the economy now existing home sales dropped six point four percent in December the weakest pace in more than three years for more on this. We are joined now by Bloomberg economist Tim his in our Bloomberg eleven three studios in New York, and Tim what is happening to the housing market. Now was so it's definitely a little bit more sluggish than we than we expected, but what's happening is a down. And that's what we thought was going to happen as rates have been rising. So I wouldn't say that this isn't alarming December number, but I will say that it's maybe a little bit softer than we thought. It was going to be in the bigger picture though. I think the pause and rates with Cup. With the increase in wage growth means that there could be some some boost to demand for housing later this year, Tim how big of a component right now is housing economy. Well, it's big because we don't have any other data. Yeah. So generally, speaking housing is is a is a decent chunk of the economy. Consumer spending is still the largest chunk. So you don't want to see the housing market guac off a cliff that could potentially precipitate a crisis. But that's not where we are. And so while the housing markets moderating consumer spending will should moderate some to you do expect things like investments and exports to pick up the experts is kind of facing a tough global some tough conditions. So that's why we generally think there's going to be some moderation. But again, I don't think this housing number was particularly worrisome to me, especially given that we're now to see some positive and rates. And is it really that surprising given that we have seen rates coming up and also in December. Hello the markets were tanking. Yeah. I think that's. Those are their three things happening. There's one interest rates the average thirty year rate rose substantially from September September through mid November. And then came down and bounce a little bit. So that definitely has a strong impact on demand for housing. You mentioned. There was markets went a little wild at the end of the year. There's spike of political uncertainty. I think house because rather go why do I need to lock in a mortgage right now. I can wait six months to see where we're at that point. And I think that's likely going to be where we find ourselves. I think it's important though. It's remember that there's been a lot of talk about affordability and people to buy houses, which is true. But that's actually a function of of an underlying problem, which is the supply for houses and the supply of materials and labor to build those houses in the land to build us houses upon is all very short as so you have increasing you still have elevated levels of demand, but you're not able in a of these cities and metropolitan areas to build as much as neat as is needed. Which is why is your price is going up, which then of course, hurts consumers at varying price points. So about rates are consumers, basically just sort of playing a game of chicken with the fed. Yeah. I think it's it's more about them following the feds following the feds elite. I don't think they're so much playing a game of chicken is they're saying, okay. Look, I think the outcome here is that the Fed's not going to raise a margin, not raise likely not gonna raise until at least June. They're just taking that information. And maybe there are some folks who are playing a game. I think by and large. It's just a reaction to where we find ourselves in the economic cycle, and then the interest rate path. Tim are the trade wars having any impact on on the housing market. And I'm thinking here as far as the raw materials to build houses. Yeah. That definitely increases the cost of raw materials. But I think with the way to think about the trade wars is it's a one time price shock and by that. I mean, the prices go up right when the tariffs come on or shortly after his contract's renegotiated and then after that point, you're at a new price level so inflation, which is the growth in prices, actually stabilizes. And so while you see a big jump in prices and a hit to demand at some point. You will see builders and consumers internalize those things assuming that those prices are pass along the new equilibrium. And so again, if that is probably one piece the housing market. But I think the biggest piece is really the change in rates. I mean that the house demand for houses very much effected by interest rates is the prospect of affordable supply going to improve. One would hope I mean, I used to live in San Francisco, and I can tell you that somehow moving for central New York meant that I could get a bigger house. I have no idea why that is. But I can tell you that places like that are constrained by politics, some of materials and labor. So there's you know, there's been a movement into cities and metropolitan areas, and that's just increasing the. Are holding back pushing on the resource constraints in these places, and so it's gonna take a lot of economic forces and political forces to change the housing supply. It takes some cultural change especially out in the west. I was thinking about imports of aluminum nails. But we move on. Thank you, Matt. Bloomberg economist, thanks for your insight on the housing market coming up on Bloomberg politics, policy, power and law House Democrats have launched a wide ranging investigation and how the pharmaceutical industry sets prices those drug and biotech companies are target of Washington these days, but first let's get back to Bob Mon for world and national news. But Peter the Senate is set to vote before the week is out on dueling bills aimed at ending the partial government shutdown now in day three three one vote will be on President Trump's proposal laid out over the weekend.

So Dylan the love Birger setting up the lights outside of the house Dylan shows up with the string lights, which is just it's everything always Dylan popping up in this movie. He now, here's the thing. Dylan is a thirty two year old man or something like that. And it's and I know that he's boyish, and he's got boyish charm. But like when do we tell these men that they're not boys anymore? Like, I had like, you know, you just hear me just pull shit like this like I have a guy who's like thirty five.

This second slender man's walking around the house of the bottle of wine in string lights from his dead mother's house. Anything's he's gonna bring them by. It'd be normal.

If you see the lights are on and everyone sitting around the table, you don't run the table, you know, complain the lights over after dinner. So you're saying that he should go by dark man now. Yeah, I just feel like this is the type of kid in the neighborhood that people would talk about like how do we deal with their parents, and their parents are at work a lot. How do we tell them that their kid was making some boundary issues? He's grown out of some of his youthful mistakes. He's now a preteen making the mistakes of a five year old, and it's becomes awkward for everyone. Because he probably has pubic hair in.

"Eight has pressure from Chinese brands in China and India, the world's largest markets for smartphones. And so, yeah, it's it's a lot of pressure for for Samsung at the same time. We'll also get a bit more visibility on what's happening in mobile phones whenever apple reports earnings today, and some are expecting Apple's results to be a lot less worrying Lind. That's right. One thing that apple may have going forward is that there are suggestions that phone sales are up, and I thought Xs a very expensive product. And so that may have helped buoy revenues a little bit despite the slowing smartphone sales, but it's just there has been somewhat of a lack of innovation. I don't know about you, but I've been able to get a lot more mileage out of my out of my phone's lately. The need upgrade hasn't been quite as quite as strongly, where is where people sort of eating some sons loan chairman, China has become one of those really, really big countries which is is muscling into the market. Absolutely. China's way technologies is probably one of the one of the big ones that way also reported slower. I think it reported its slowest growth since two thousand thirteen today. So even even it's under pressure, but it's I could just say that it's it's a saturated market and but at the same time, Samsung diversified comes. Emme. Has its chips business and other parts. So it's not like it's a completely bleak story, but being a mobile phone maker is only getting more competitive as as more and more people who are seeking a mobile phone already have one, let's head to the skies or other not to this guy's because pilots in Germany who worked for runner, balloting strike action. That's right. Ryanair is facing even more even more pressure with the unions. And most recently, the German pilot's union, something like ninety six percents that they were in favor of striking. It has until August six to to make an offer to try to avoid the strike. And it's already Brian already had to cancel something like six hundred flights this this impacts more than one hundred thousand passengers because of disputes in Ireland, Italy, Belgium, Spain, Portugal, and it's in a particularly bitter seeming dispute in Ireland with with the with the union there and. His threatened to potentially move out of Ireland. So yes, it's Ryanair has has its work cut out for it with these with these negotiations, it does. The German union has accused of playing in the negotiations which is difficult given the fact that Germany is usually a country where management and unions possibly enjoy slightly healthy relationship might be said of other places, right? And this goes to kind of the core of the Ryanair model forever. They refuse to wreck even recognize unions, and now the had to face the inevitable seeming of having to face with these groups. And yeah, the animosity is is really bubbling up. Let's move on finally to Bloomberg, and we have Russia's tiny neighbour prepares its cyber revenge with speaking of a stone, Stony. That's right. Estonia is building a cyber command unit according to Bloomberg. Estonians seen as having been a target of state sponsored cyber cyber attacks by by Russia back in two thousand seven. And this is interesting. Tiniest Dona. They're building a three hundred person unit that would be able to mount its own cyber-attacks. It's not supposed to be something they would use during peacetime, but it does underscore couple of things. I mean one it makes sense for Stony to do this because. When it comes to defending against these attacks, it requires experts, say a different kind of mindset. You need to have kind of a hacker mindset to understand what could be attacking you. So it seems like it makes a lot of sense for them to have this from a defensive point of view, but it also just feels like as these attacks become more serious, perhaps we're getting closer to a time when cyber track attacks are treated more like a mainstream or a normal type of attack. One thing that surprised me when I read about this Estonia is joys reputation for being a very cutting edge technological hub. Why is it taking so long to actually pull together this? What should describe sort of cybercrime owned unit? I think it's a matter of a matter of resources and also perhaps relying on relying on its neighbors and relying on NATO. That's a good question.
