Is It Time to Decouple From China? David McCormick Explains
"So provocative idea that some people have floated out that I sympathize with on moral terms, but I also understand that it's rather aggressive is that time to decouple. I mean, there are some really thoughtful people that are talking about economically, that's a harsh measure that would definitely mean that there would be rising costs and probably economic uncertainty. But is that something we should be entertaining or at the very least, you know, identify ten or 20, 30 different sectors. They say we want to make this your thoughts. What I call it in the book is strategic decoupling. And listen, I was shocked, Charlie. I can't believe it. And I know I should follow a no such things, but that our pharmaceutical supply chains during COVID were so dependent on China. I was, you know, I knew we were highly dependent on microchips but 90% of the microchips that we require are manufactured 90 miles from Mainland China in Taiwan. So it is an absolute travesty that we have an entire semiconductor industry which is critical to every aspect of national security and economic well-being that's offshore. So that's a perfect example where we need to decouple. There are a number of areas where we need to bring those capabilities home or have them within our closest allies where we can be dependent on it. And that's going to have implications for our ability to have manufacturing jobs here at home in very positive ways. It may raise costs but it will create actual security.

"Hearing from Joe Biden? He said that we are going to support Ukraine for as long as it takes. That means another year, another 5 years, another ten years and let's make sure we have our facts right. I know we obviously have a very conservative audience and I know based on your emails you send me freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com, you are against the war in Ukraine, but several of your Republican senators and several of your Republican congressmen are the most enthusiastic advocates for this new endless war.

Joe Biden and cut four, the United States will support Ukraine for as long as it takes. There is no end date, there is no limit as Ukraine, one of the states in our country might as well be for neoliberalism. For neoliberals, they don't see borders, borders are an abstract concept.

China's national health commission said it would stop publishing daily case numbers for the coronavirus Bloomberg herskowitz has more on that.

The commission did not provide a reason for the change in policy in a statement on Sunday, but said that the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention will release COVID related info for studies and reference.

Well, that should be somewhat easy to do. Thank you for having me, Charlie. I'm not a typical scientist. I started off my career in the U.S. Military as an infantryman. I served in operation enduring freedom, operation Iraqi freedom. That was going to be a career after and then after my second deployment had to change your heart decided to go out for my next passion science. My degrees are in psychology. Security technology engineering, geographic information systems and my PhD is environmental health with an emerging infectious disease, especially track, which is epidemiology essentially. And the PhD student, I was groomed to be a leader in bioterror biosecurity. I worked at a Department of Homeland Security center of excellence at the PhD student on full scholarship, head on my dissertation research published, and they started bringing me out to Washington D.C. to meet all the key players all the top bureaucrats at the three letter agencies in national security and bioterror and bio warfare.

"Runoff. I'm Brad Steve. And I'm Doug prisoner at Bloomberg world headquarters in New York. Let's check the sours top business stories and the markets we are seeing a rally in equities in Hong Kong as local authorities on the Chinese mainland ease some of the most strict COVID measures. Morgan Stanley is now bullish again on Chinese equities after nearly two years. Earlier today, on Bloomberg daybreak, Asia, our Paul Allen spoke with Carlos Casanova, senior Asian economist at ubp, he gave a rough timeline as to when we can see China's full reopening. It's certainly very important for the global economy, but we are still in the cautious camp in thinking that there will be starts and stops and it won't be smooth sailing going forward. Despite these partial reopening measures in cities like Shanghai and Hangzhou, the cases have been spiraled out of controlling is absolutely going to fuel the positive narrative around equities this week. We are a little bit concerned, however, about vaccination rates. So the vaccination rate for the elderly remains very low at 66%. This full reopening will not happen until that level is hit. We have to wait until around April for that to take place. Pick a growth number for me for China and 2023. In our opinion is around 4%. However, given that we do expect the reopening to happen next year and that COVID zero cost between three to 5 percentage points of GDP this year, setting a target next year could be fairly easy in the sense that they would have to mess up a tremendously in order to miss that growth target. Most likely, we will not know until March, but we are entering the December premium and one day after the prenup is a central economic work conference. So over the next few weeks, we will have a good idea of whether or not China will plan to aim the target or not. If they do, it's a positive sign for sure. That is Carlos Casanova from ubp.

This is Bloomberg Wall Street week with David Weston from Bloomberg radio. Credit, it's what makes the business world go round. And years of fiscal and monetary stimulus have made sure there's plenty of credit to go around. But now the fed and other central banks would like there to be just a little less lending so we can get inflation down. History cautions strongly against prematurely loosening policy. We will stay the course until the job is done. Which is hitting deals, particularly when it comes to private equity. What affects dealmaking is uncertainty. Uncertainty is the enemy of deal making. But it turns out that as the government regulates lending from the banks more, the world of private credit has exploded. The more you regulate parts of the financial system, the money tends to flow to the unregulated parts of the financial system. Having all that credit going on outside of the regulated part of the economy is not ideal. But that leaves the question whether private credit will be able to step in as the banks pull back. Private credit is really important, but private credit has also pulled back a little bit, not because of the availability of financing or because they are stuck with bad loans like some of the large banks are. But because of the enormous uncertainty. And to take us into this

"And what's interesting is those people who will accept that are often folks who will contest the idea that the state and the nation are disallowed, but it's actually a very useful analogy to see that they can be aligned, but they can also be disappointed. I've obviously not somebody who's anti management, but I recognize that you want equity structures and things like that to align folks, right? Once you kind of realize that the nation and the state are different, you can reexamine all these words. Example, multinational, right? So multinational for multinational corporations actually a misnomer. It really should be called multi jurisdictional or multi state. Because it's not as if Google has a direct ambassador to the catalonians and the basques and the Kurds and so on. It's actually talking to the states that have the administrative units, right? So it's multi jurisdictional once I see it. The United Nations, as we just discussed, is really best called the selected states because it doesn't have all the nations of the world, right? And in fact, many nations missed out on that game of musical chairs and they don't have a seat at the United Nations. And now you can actually realize, oh, there's a whole queue of people people's really I should say groups, right? With long histories and cultures that are boxed out of the United Nations. And one that's very prominent is like the invention of the Kurds catalonians. One that's sort of becoming a nation are like the Taiwanese. Where there wasn't like historically this huge necessarily difference from Mainland China or at least there is some difference in a lot of folks in Taiwan came from Mainland China because the Kuomintang, the nationalists also Civil War a bunch of them moved out. Now Taiwan is like this, that's a very famous example of something that's served on the boundary between just a group of people and like a full fledged country that's recognized for everybody because China leans on people to not recognize Taiwan, right? That's like a famous example, but there's lots of other things that are in this sort of boundary zone in different ways. Where some countries recognize them, but not all. So it's not part of the club fully, but it's also not totally not part of the club. It's like in this nether zone. This is a book called invisible countries on this. What I'm getting at is once you distinguish the nation in the state, you reexamine words like multinational. You review them, reexamine words like the United Nations. Reexamine words like national security or phrases like national security. Really, that's like federal security, right? Nation is often used to mean the whole thing, but really it's like federal, like the overall government, right?

"I guess what assets would you be looking in in China that are potentially undervalued at the moment? Yeah, a $1 million question, Juliet. But quite clearly, post the Congress expectation for more certainty from a low base, that's pretty reasonable statement. I then basically go across a board and everything is discounted in China. Again, because of Beijing's policy pivot in March 21 that has really confused the west and trying to acquire and buy future earnings. So there's so many opportunities in Mainland China. But obviously, the domestic demand that the more consumption expectation for the decade ahead, there's just so much upside, but right across the board, Juliet, there's just discounts for what's been going on and the disappointment. So obviously, the 5 and a half were never going to happen from a year ago, but obviously now we're getting that three and a half, possibly a two handle. So they're really going to turn it around for this calendar year and get both upgrades for 23 and then 24 and beyond. But again, the certainty from party Congress creates opportunity, the more opportunity in certainty they can create for investors. They need capital. It is finite still. There's opportunities right across the board to Mainland China, staying away from property still as that destruction is working through the system and to the PBS they come up with some type of broad based solution. But a bad bank perhaps can be part of that narrative. But yeah, it's discounted throughout for many, many reasons. You can flip a switch on dynamic zero, but you can't flip a switch on the Chinese property crisis. Is that something that there are going to be suffering the consequences from that for years to come? It's spot on. And really looking for a new quote, a Mario Draghi, PBOC, Beijing narrative, like something big has to happen to solve what is significant. This is the biggest property impairment, the world's ever seen. And it has to be addressed some way. But having said all of that, again, it's all about that certainty and policy that need to start from a low base and create that. And then with the opening up of Mainland China, let's look at the template coming out of Japan much smaller, completely different economy, for this reasons, but the opening up of Japan is a smaller template of what will be happening in Mainland China when they do decide to

But it's not just this community that wants to escape the ever rising tides. The population of ten other islands also say they want to leave now, but they have no houses to go to. Some of the people I've spoken to on other islands have no plans to move. But here on guard there's an eagerness to start a new life on the safety of the shore. The gunner people once lived on mainland South America. But after the Spanish conquest, they gradually fled to these islands to escape violence and disease. Islander magdalena therefore sees the move to the mainland as a historic return. Our ancestors lived on the mainland, near the province of Darien. When the Spanish arrived, they wanted to abuse us, so we had to come here. So we'll be returning to what it was like before. But magdalena says you'll miss life out at sea.

So since I've been on this journey to study astrology like many others, I've been curious about my romantic relationships and career. I'm not yet old and I think we can reveal the age of 32.

I believe that your need for freedom, Venus in Aquarius moon and Virgo. No, your moon and Virginia and about freedom is about things specific. And literally moving around the world didn't quite allow for me to settle. I've always been interested in guys who aren't interested in me. Isn't that the age old question? I wouldn't say I've had too much bad luck in a relationship so it's never in bad or beautiful relationships but I think I just never quite found the right one. Maybe I'm not in a hurry. The question is, how would you go about interpreting the person's attitude towards relationships and birth chart? And what you might encourage the person to take note of if they wish for relationships to happen. Good question. So what you need to take of.

Now they're getting a warm welcome back. Mena jones is an ecologist at the university of tasmania. She studied the animal for thirty years. And she's an adviser to a group that released eleven devils into a wildlife park in new south wales matt. Galloway spoke to her in october. Here's their conversation. I think for a lot of us. Really the only impression that we have of the tasmanian devil is what we just heard from bugs. Bunny there. how does the real tasmanian devil compare to the cartoon version. Well i think it's a quite a funny story really because the people who came up with the typhoon devil had apparently never been has never seen it has many devil in the flesh but there are certain key aspects about tents. Which kinda get it right. You know devils a full of character their belligerent towards each other. They're very very food driven. They'll gorge themselves to their stomachs. Just delighted their screams growls and screens or enough to rice. The devil but the flip side of that is the devils There are predator and like most predators. They really smart animals. They're very wary of people so they quite shot then not aggressive towards people at all in fact as a researcher working on these animals in the field i can call me a devil whisper but i can just pick him up and devils that i worked on for berin pie lives. I could just take out of the second. Sit in my lap. And i would take the hit on the my arms. You know to get out of the sun. If i had someone with me had met before that could feel tints up a bit while they listened to the voice since. I don't know that person. So you know the they both full of character full of belligerents. Great michael is but they're also really not animals. Do they spin around. I mean in the cartoon they're like whipping around and they buzzed through trees and underground they do they do. They actually spin around. I have had a dribble spin around. It was just before the nineteen now headed biggest. Devil that i've ever captured. He was fourteen kilograms. And we're not finished handling most sitting on the ground with my leg. Seven from you know a big quite relaxed. I'll listen guy that he was fully fooling himself just prior to the mating season but embraced away and they stopped it out for maters away and he actually spun out and he charged me became to skidding halt and later away and just sort of huffed and grump to that around again and took off the decide but that probably go very often. You mentioned the sound of the tasmanian devil again. I mean we have the idea of what it sounds like in the cartoon. This kind of spitting roaring wild beast. This is what to real tasmanian devils. John mike kind of devilish. If i do say so myself why have they had such a hard go on the mainland. As i mentioned they've been extinct there for three thousand years not more or less why i went extinct. I mean being three thousand views drawing climate and they range had been pretty much. All of the australian mainland perhaps a desert and they contracted down to a very small area in the more temperate part of southeastern australia round about that time the human population increased with. You told us this is the aboriginal population which would have increased potentially competition for pry and potentially also direct professional the devil and also. The dingo arrived in australia. The dingo it was a domestic dog at timing on fishing from indonesia and that spread very rapidly. Land the synergy of those three things. The devil the mike it and the solid saint also went extinct and we can pick up a genetic signature intense mania of a near extinction event of both devils and policies fan time and all we hadn't has made it was the climate event we didn't have the increase in average for population and we didn't get inga's so it does indicate the you know the comet probably fit the scene and the other two factors bumped it off now that we know roughly why that went extinct. There's no reason why we can't put them back. What's the benefit. just finally putting them back there. Well the devil predator originally the two top predators in australia with a solid thing which is not not really actually as big as if it's not really a wolf it's more of a solid looking coyote And the devil which is a must be hiding bit. It's not very big. They're only between sort of sympathy twelve kilograms. But they're the top terrestrial predator in australian ak- systems so with the extinction of those two on the mainland and the arrival of the bingo. We now have dingoes on the mainland fulfill that top predator role but dingoes con live everywhere they kind of bend from shape country because the pretty destructive on shape so there are many places that now lack atop terrestrial mammalian predator and top predators are pretty good persecuting invasive predators like red foxes in australia and feral cats so this then means that the devil functions as the top predator in protecting smaller by diversity which would be impacted by predation from feral cats so it helps keep it helps keep things back in check in some ways it does. Yep do they call you. The devil whisper have been called dead. It's a it's a good thing to have a business card. I really appreciate you telling us more about an animal. That as i say. We know only from reputation reputation from a cartoon. Perhaps it's not something that you want to build Your knowledge on thank you very much. Thank you bye bye.

I want to begin our discussion with Brexit. Which is your You know your area. That's your R expert on that. And I know we've had quite a few discussions about how all of this is, uh, you know, washing out Now that Brexit is in place and we've seen, you know, months of how things are working. One of the impacts is Northern Ireland and how it's impacting. The people there are in the economy there. Talk to us a little bit about not only the economic part of that the trade part of that, but the social impact of Brexit in Northern Ireland. Sure. Well, that's certainly you know, a topic that's close to my own heart coming from Ireland myself, You know, I think when we look at, um Brexit, Northern Ireland is the one area within the UK That really has kind of a unique situation within this whole process. I think the last time we were talking We were. You know, those sausage wars are just starting where there was a, um Quite a kerfuffle about the importation of Fresh meat from the mainland UK, So Britain into Northern Ireland and how that might have to stop as object. June 30th. Because of, uh you, uh, phytosanitary regulations. You know this. That proposal was postponed for another, You know, three months, with the EU, giving an exemption until the end of September, But I think it's just an indication of kind of some of the stuff that's going on. Um To a large extent. You know, I think Northern Ireland particularly union, the unionist Committee community in Northern Ireland, Um, you know, feel that they're in a very kind of a limbo like stop it. The unionists, years, politicians and the Unionist Party voted for leave. But the majority of people in Northern Ireland voted to stay within the European Union. And they have you know the problem that the unions have is that they basically have to enforce something. That people didn't want. So that's always very difficult. Um, certainly, I think the protocol for Northern Ireland Is Really unworkable. Um in many ways, but it is something that the UK government not only Devised but campaigned on supported inside and I think the European Union looks at this as being something where We have an international agreement and we have to keep to our side of the agreement. But you also have to keep to yours. And this, I think is kind of so there's this tension between The UK as you over the northern protocol. The summer is always a very tricky time in Northern Ireland, because this is one they have marching that they call it, Uh, yesterday July, 12. Uh, celebrates the victory of the William of Orange over the Um Stuart And this goes back to 16 89, you know, every year seniors, um Social groups go for big marches along within the towns and villages in Northern Ireland. And, you know, this is seems the provocation to the nationalist community and often the riots and general chronological trouble. You know, since they know that, uh, since the northern oil agreement good Friday, get myself and called In 1998. We've seen a kind of general kind of de escalation of tensions. But you know, I'm always got to remember with the troubles are like I go up through it. And, you know, everybody knows that this is just something that Is bubbling underneath us and anything that makes northern Norman feel different from the rest of the UK. Is something that makes the union is very concerned. You know, I was going to ask you the question then becomes, I think, What is the solution? What happens next? I mean, when you have the you know, when you kick the can down the road for another three months. That doesn't really give a lot of You know, feeling of, uh, of assurances that this is going to be solved in a in a good way? Yeah, it's gonna be. It's very It's very difficult. Now. There are ways around it and the you have offered, for example, to sign a fighter Sam Street deal So which will cover 80 of some issues with Food products would be covered by this deal. It would allow free importation and amount of the UK into Northern Ireland to tell me what you frankly, um, similar to the deal they have with Switzerland in some other countries.
