A highlight from Could Oil and a Gov't Shutdown Screw Up Powell's Plans?
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin, and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Friday, September 22nd, and today we are talking oil, macro, everything that could throw the economy off. But before we get to that, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review, or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link at the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. All right, friends, well, we are sort of continuing the macro story today that we picked up around Powell and the FOMC this week. And one of the questions that Powell was asked was about risks that threatened to knock the economy off course. Two that he mentioned that we're going to spend a little time on today include oil prices and a potential government shutdown. Let's start with oil first. The price of crude oil has steadily increased over the past four months. From a low of around $70 in June, oil reached almost $90 a barrel for the US -based WTI benchmark contract and $95 per barrel and $95 per barrel for international Brent crude earlier this week. The price increase for crude has driven US gas prices back above $3 .80 per gallon, the highest level since last October. Overall, gas prices have ramped up by 20 % since the beginning of the year, according to AAA. Now, there are a number of factors all contributing to steadily increasing oil prices since the June lows. The first is OPEC+. The economic group of oil producing nations led by Saudi Arabia and Russia have recently curbed output. Production cuts, which were agreed to late last year, have been gradually implemented over the past six months. In July, Saudi Arabia voluntarily cut an additional 1 million barrels per day from its production quota, about 10 % of its previous output. Existing production cuts across OPEC have already been extended into next year and analysts expect Saudi Arabia to extend their voluntary cuts until March. On Thursday, Russia further constrained supply by banning the export of diesel and petrol. Russia is one of the world's largest suppliers of diesel alongside their status as producing around 12 % of the global supply of crude oil. The International Energy Agency said last year that Russian refineries produce, quote, roughly double the diesel needed to satisfy domestic demand and typically export half their annual production. Analyst opinions focused on the simplest explanation for the ban, retaliation for sanctions. Henning Gloestien of the Eurasia Group said, Russia wants to inflict pain on Europe and the U .S. and it looks like they're now repeating the playbook from gas and the oil market ahead of the winter months. They're showing that they're not finished using their power over energy markets. The Kremlin said the ban was temporary and aimed at addressing rising energy prices in domestic markets. However, they gave no timeline on when the ban might be lifted. U .S. and European policymakers have largely banned the importation of Russian refined fuel since February, which has required Russian supply to be routed through third party regions including Turkey, North Africa and Latin America. Now, OPEC cuts over the past year were predicated on a weakening demand profile heading into this year. At the time they were announced, recessions were expected across Europe and the U .S. China was an open question with the potential of reopening pushed back in the midst of additional pandemic waves. But since then, the European economy is sputtering along, albeit with dismal manufacturing data out of Germany. The sanctioning of Russian supply has caused European demand to be displaced to other regions with refining capacity, largely India and the Middle East. In the U .S., recession has been continuously pushed off into the future and oil demand is now back at all time highs with no signs of slowing. Although the Chinese economy has hit some turbulence recently, oil demand remains robust. Analysts expect China's oil demand to remain high as Beijing secures strategically important resources. What's more, analysts expect China's oil demand to remain high as Beijing secures strategically important resources in part to mitigate geopolitical risks as well as to shore up its manufacturing and transportation industries. So with oil prices spiking, many are wondering whether the White House will once again intervene in markets using the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Between November 2021 and September of last year, the White House authorized a number of SPR releases. The final policy saw one million barrels per day provided into the market over six months. A small amount of oil was restocked earlier this year, but the SPR still sits at a little over half its pre -pandemic level. Earlier this week, a headline circulated proclaiming that quote, Biden says depleting SPR is on the table. This was later found to be a hoax with no legitimate source, but it demonstrates how difficult high oil prices could be for the U .S. economy heading into election season. To wit, many saw the SPR release as a political decision rather than an economic decision heading into the 2022 midterms. In the private sector, U .S. oil inventories have recently hit 40 -year lows of 46 -day supply, well below the longer -term average of 65 days. And while August's inflation reports already showed a small uptick due to oil -related prices, the effect is expected to be more profound across this month. Dario Perkins, an economist at T .S. Lombard said, That said, it is important to keep these recent inflationary developments in context. We are not yet in danger of undoing 12 months of solid disinflationary progress, not even close. Others suggested that high oil prices would have a greater impact on growth rather than inflation. Maya Bhandari, head of multi -asset at BNP Paribas Asset Management said, It really impacts the growth side of the Goldilocks equation rather than the inflation side of things over the long term. Theory is that sustained high oil prices begin to eat into disposable income for households alongside higher costs of production for manufacturing and logistics. These combine to reduce growth and potentially tip the economy into recession. Overall, this situation in the oil markets has, to some, many parallels to the liquid natural gas spike in the winter of 2022. Prices in some markets rose more than tenfold, European energy companies scrambled to secure supply at any cost, and multiple firms went bankrupt due to the volatility in markets. This week, Bloomberg reported that the trading arm of French supplier Total Energies has played a major role in bidding up the price of U .S.-based oil. Their source claimed that the firm is paying a premium for physical U .S. barrels, pushing the spread against futures to levels not seen since last November. With all of that said, there are some signs that the oil market is beginning to cool off. On Thursday, Brent crude futures fell to $92 per barrel, which represented the third straight day of price declines, which is the longest streak in almost a month. Warren Patterson, head of Commodity Strategy at ING, said the Fed's hawkish messaging has quote, put some pressure on risk assets, including oil. The dollar index has risen by 0 .8 % since Chair Powell left the podium, a large enough move to weigh on asset markets. Patterson said he still expects Brent crude to move above the $100 mark in the near term, but that he doesn't anticipate the move will be sustainable. So that is the view on oil overall. The thing that I am definitely going to be watching more than anything else is the political dimension of this. We are now entering the period where everything, even more than usual, is going to be completely wrapped up in what it means for the election season. If prices at the pump keep trending up, it seems very likely that the Biden administration will be willing to do what it takes, including SPR releases, to get those prices down. But that's just something we're going to have to keep an eye on. Now what about that other factor that Powell mentioned? Well yes, indeed, my friends, the US government is once again hurtling towards a shutdown after efforts to pass a short term spending bill were scuttled on the House floor on Thursday. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy attempted to marshal Republicans to vote through a package to keep the government funded past the end of September. Closed door negotiations continued late into Wednesday night, but were apparently unconvincing. The bill currently being considered is the $886 billion Defense Appropriations Act. The bill was stifled in the House after five GOP representatives refused to allow debate to begin by voting against a preliminary procedural rule. Democrats also voted against the measure and appeared to taunt Republicans apparently reveling in seeing the GOP's slim majority descend into chaos. Among the Republican dissenters was Marjorie Taylor Greene, who opposed the inclusion of $300 million in funding to the Ukrainian war effort. On Thursday, Politico reported that Pentagon sources have said Ukrainian operations have been exempted from any shutdown, making that part of the dispute rather moot. McCarthy sent House members home on Thursday night to return to Washington on Tuesday. He told reporters after the failed vote, quote, two people flipped, so I got to figure out how to fix that. That wasn't the impression they had given us. Now, this was McCarthy's third attempt at bringing the bill to the House floor. The current proposal on the table is a 31 -day stopgap funding mechanism to forestall a shutdown to begin next weekend. McCarthy remarked on the change in tone in Congress among that extreme element of the Republican Party, stating that, quote, this is a whole new concept of individuals that just want to burn the whole place down. Now, even if a 31 -day stopgap is passed in the House, it seems unlikely to make its way through the Democrat -controlled Senate. The bill includes a 30 percent temporary cut to domestic agencies and immigration law changes, neither of which are likely to get the seal of approval from Dems. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said instead of decreasing the chance of a shutdown, Speaker McCarthy is actually increasing it by wasting time on extremist proposals that cannot become law in the Senate. House Democrat leader Hakeem Jeffries remarked that the situation was playing out as a, quote, Republican civil war. Now, if it comes to pass, this would be the 11th government shutdown since 1980. The logic is that hard -line positions that don't enjoy support in the Congress can be put directly to the American people by shutting down the government and drawing attention to the impasse. Republican Ralph Norman said last week that, quote, we're going to have a shutdown. We believe in what we're doing. The jury will be the country. Still, the record on government shutdowns doesn't really support that strategy. Not one of the 10 previous shutdowns resulted in the dissenting group extracting concessions. Typically, the American people quickly turn on the party they view as blocking access to government services over a petty squabble. Alex Conant, a Republican strategist, said, This is such a dumb fight because there's no principle that we're standing on here. It's just bad tactics. While the dispute is nominally over excessive government spending, with Republican dissenters pushing for funding to be reduced back to 2022 levels, the underlying problem is, of course, the level of discord within the Republican Party. McCarthy was voted in as House Speaker after a record 15 attempts. The process took four days and frequently descended into a farce. This was only the second time in the post -Civil War era that a House Speaker had failed to be elected on the first attempt. Conant noted the terrible optics of a government shutdown of the Republicans' own making heading into election season, stating that, quote, Biden didn't win because of his political skills and soaring oratory. He won because Republicans blew themselves up with Trump. I'm afraid we're seeing history repeat itself, with the GOP once again helping Biden by shooting themselves in the foot. Of course, never one to shy away from controversy, Trump fanned the flames on Wednesday, posting that, quote, Republicans in Congress can and must defund all aspects of Crooked Joe Biden's weaponized government that refuses to close the border and treats half the country as enemies of the state. He added that, quote, This is also the last chance to defund these political prosecutions against me and other patriots. They failed on the debt limit they must not fail now. Use the power of the person to defend the country. Now, zooming out and trying to get away from the politics of the situation, which obviously is not the focus of this show. The reason that this was brought up at last week's FOMC press conference is that a government shutdown would halt the publication of government data. This would include employment, inflation and growth statistics, which are currently playing a key role in guiding Fed policy. Now, given how much the Fed has said over and over again, their policy is going to be driven by data, presumably not having access to that data would be a fairly big deal. Yet in spite of that, Powell tried to put on a brave face, saying, If there is a government shutdown and it lasts through the next meeting, then it's possible we wouldn't be getting some of the data that we would ordinarily get and we would just have to deal with that. Now, by way of some history, the longest ever government shutdown lasted 35 days. The dispute was around funding for the border wall and quickly turned public sentiment against the Trump administration. Republicans controlled both the House and the Senate, but the administration failed to convince their own party to fund the wall. At the time, Democrat Senator Jon Tester called it the most stupid shutdown I have ever seen in my life. However, if this week's display is anything to go by, that 2019 shutdown could soon have some competition for that title. Now, what does this all have to do with the crypto sphere? Well, I think in many ways these are just exemplary of the state of politics in general. And given that, perhaps it's not surprising that former Senator Pat Toomey is not optimistic about the chances of crypto legislation being passed during this Congress. Just prior to retiring from Congress at the beginning of the year, Toomey introduced his own crypto bill, which focused on stablecoin regulations. Now, the House currently has two major crypto bills eligible to be brought for a vote. One would establish a stablecoin framework while the other introduces more broad crypto regulations. While speaking at a Georgetown Law Seminar on Thursday, however, Toomey said, I don't see a path forward in the Senate regardless of how the vote goes in the House. He added that of the two, he sees the stablecoin legislation as having the best shot. The sticking point will likely be Senate Banking Committee Chairman Sherrod Brown. While Brown has been outspoken about the risks of crypto and the need to bring the industry to heel, he has so far remained extremely quiet on exactly what form of legislation would meet his approval. And of course, any crypto legislation would need the support of Democratic senators to pass a vote to become law. Still, during an interview on Thursday, Coinbase Chief Policy Officer Faryar Shirzad said that she thinks that Brown's lack of commitment to a legislative position might actually be a good thing. Shirzad said, Now, last week, Brown wrote a letter to head regulators at multiple agencies urging them to use their existing powers to crack down on non -compliant crypto firms. This of course seems to be the clear intention, at least at the SEC. On Tuesday, the head of that agency's crypto assets and cyber unit, David Hirsch, warned that more enforcement actions would be coming against crypto intermediaries, including DeFi protocols. Still, Toomey, who serves now as an advisor to Coinbase, views stablecoin legislation as the solvable problem. At the moment, Democrats are pushing for the Fed to serve a central role in regulating issuers rather than granting oversight power to state regulators. This preference is believed to be driven by the White House. Toomey said, He thinks that senior Democrats will get on board once the White House is satisfied with the stablecoin proposal. Although that proposal might have to wait until after the election, as Toomey said in the next Congress, I think it's quite possible to get something done.

Rumors of a possible romance between the two have been flying over the last few weeks. I'm and I'm Doug Krisner at Bloomberg World Headquarters in New York. Let's check this hour's top business stories and the markets. The Federal Trade Commission has hit Amazon with an antitrust lawsuit. The tech giant is accused of monopolizing online marketplace services by degrading quality for shoppers and overcharging sellers. FTC chair Lina Khan is vowing to take action. However, did she stop short of calling for a breakup of Amazon. We believe that this lawsuit, we're if successful, will actually entirely restore the promise of free competition. Our free enterprise system is one where companies should be competing on the merits and not be able to protect their monopoly power or through illegal tactics. That is FTC chair Lina Khan. Now from the other side, Amazon is arguing that consumers will see prices go up and the product selection come down if the FTC were to get its way. We go next to artificial intelligence and Open AI, the creator of BBPT. The company is reportedly talking to investors about a potential share sale saying it would give the startup a valuation of between $80 billion to $90 billion and that would make Open AI one of the most highly valued startups in the world. Here's Bloomberg's Ed Ludlow. In April, the valuation was around $29 billion. So this is a significant jump, but part of what The Wall Street Journal is talking about is something Bloomberg's already reported, that Open AI is on track to around a billion dollars of revenue this year, a lot greater than that in 2024. So while it's a jump up in valuation, and this is based on an insider share sale, by the way, not issuing new shares or a new round of equity with agencies. They seem to be doing real business. That is Bloomberg's Ed Ludlow. We go to the days Fed speak next to Governor Michelle Bowman was saying increased rent burdens are putting a spotlight on why the Fed's fight against inflation is now so vital. These increased costs and these cost pressures underscore the importance of the Federal Reserve's efforts to fight inflation, which can can complement efforts to address other factors affecting rent prices, including increasing the supply of rental housing. That is Fed Governor Michelle Bowen speaking at a virtual event hosted by the Fed. In remarks she made last week, Bowman suggested she favors raising interest rates one more time.

World leaders at the G20 summit stopped short of condemning Russia for its invasion of Ukraine. Instead, they urged nations to respect each other's borders. In a closing statement issued Saturday, the leaders called for a just and durable peace in Ukraine. It added that any use or threat of use of nuclear weapons is inadmissible. The G20 declaration also called on Russia to reinstate the Black Sea Grain Initiative, which allowed Ukraine to export grain to help global food supplies. President Biden says the U .S. will provide assistance to Morocco following a deadly earthquake if requested. More than a thousand people were killed and hundreds more injured by Friday's magnitude six point eight earthquake. Biden issued a statement from the G20 summit in India today, saying he is deeply saddened by the loss of life and devastation. The Senate will start moving a package of government funding bills next week. Trey Thomas reports. This comes as Congress is racing to avoid a shutdown at the end of this month. The last thing Americans need right now is a pointless government shutdown. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said he expects the first votes on Monday. The top Democrat urged Republicans in the House to follow the Senate's lead.

"The States and we'll flesh things out for you momentarily. Let's begin right now with an update in a few of the hour's top business stories, Paul. Well the Federal Trade Commission is suing Amazon in a highly anticipated antitrust case, the FTC accusing the e -commerce giant of monopolising online marketplace services by degrading quality for shoppers and overcharging sellers. Bloomberg's Ed Ludlow has more. In the suit, the FTC is saying that Amazon takes punitive and coercive actions, putting its products above those of others. This is the fourth FTC case against Amazon specifically focused on Amazon .com, the e -commerce, the online portion of its business and this is a suit that the FTC has filed in federal court and now we go from here and ask what kind of risk does this really pose. That's Bloomberg's Ed Ludlow there. Amazon shares ending the day lower by 4%. We go next to artificial intelligence where U .S. intelligence agencies are now getting into the game. More from Bloomberg's Nathan Hager in Washington. The CIA is preparing its own chat GPT style to better sift through the mountains of public data. The agency's open source enterprise division plans to provide the tool to all 18 intelligence agencies soon. It's part of a broader government push to harness the power of AI and compete with China which is looking to become the global leader in the field before this decade is out. The CIA isn't saying what large language it's model using or how it will keep its data off the open internet. That's something the private AI industry is grappling with as well. In Washington I'm Nathan Hager Bloomberg Radio. Separately today OpenAI you know it as the creator of a chat GPT while the company is reportedly talking to investors about a potential share sale. The Wall Street Journal saying the sale would give the startup a valuation of between $80 billion $90 billion. JP Morgan Chase is looking to get past legal woes over its ties to Jeffrey Epstein. The US Bank has agreed to pay $75 million to the US Virgin Islands in a settlement. It's also reached a confidential agreement with former executive Jess Stanley to resolve the firm's claims against him. Bloomberg's Shonali Basak has more. There's certainly a price tag now that has been associated with it and a turning of the page It's not just really about the money here. I remember this has been going on for months and you had JP Morgan CEO himself, Jamie Dimon, deposed in the vein of these lawsuits as well. And so it was a pretty ugly dispute here. Bloomberg's Shonali Basak in New York. The settlements capped nearly a year of public battles over JP Morgan's ties to Epstein, which had become an occasional headache for the bank. JP Morgan shares also ending the day lower by 1%. The logistics arm of Alibaba, Tainao, has filed for an IPO in Hong Kong. The Hong Kong Stock Exchange confirming that Alibaba can proceed with a proposed spinoff of Tainao and this initial public offering. This could potentially make Tainao the first of Alibaba's units to go public. Sources telling us the IPO could raise at least a billion dollars. All right, 31 minutes past the hour, let's get a check of global news. And Senate negotiators have announced a partisan bid to avert a shutdown. Ed Baxter's got more. All right, thank you very much, Paul. Bill extends until November 17th provides some Ukraine aid. Now we'll have to overcome the deadlock on the house, which Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says is not even working on trying to avert a shutdown.

And now the speaker will put on the floor hard right appropriation bills that have nothing to do with avoiding a shutdown. Yeah, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is saying today that his caucus will make progress tonight on funding the government and speaks against the right wing of his party. It'd be concerning to me that if there'd be people in the Republican Party, they would take a position of President Biden against what the rest of the Americans want. Now remember, the far right House Republicans have opposed Ukraine aid. Government shutdown is poised to delay billions of dollars in clean energy incentives from President Biden's signature climate law. And this is a pivotal time for investment.

Cracks may be emerging in one of the economy's main drivers, the American consumer. Does that you cause to be a little worried at this point? Well thanks for being with you guys. I'm not that worried. I mean it's natural that the consumers would be a bit gloomier. We have a potential government showdown. We have interest rates remaining high and gas prices recently went back up, which in food and gas are the two areas that really affect consumer confidence. But it wasn't a massive drop in consumer confidence and I think once you get into the holiday shopping season, you'll see that consumers, no matter what their sentiment, are still out there spending money and supporting the U .S. economy. I'm not really terribly worried about it. There was an interesting figure this week from one of the Fed surveys indicating the that bottom 80 % of income earners in the U .S. basically have depleted all of the savings that was stored up as a result of the pandemic. Now I'm looking at data from S &P Global Market Intelligence indicating that total bank deposits year over year, so that would be as of the fiscal year that ended June 30th. We are now seeing a decline for the first time in data going back to 1994, so it seems like the consumers really all out of dry powder at this point. Well, I mean in the United States as you well know, what do consumers Thank you. It's always dangerous when they start not having savings and going into their credit cards, but that is the pattern that we see in the United States when there's low times, but on the other hand you look at unemployment, it's still low at 3 .8%. Inflation has not really gone up much higher. It would be nice to have the rates just start to come down because this has definitely stalled the U .S. housing market and even in some cases the rental prices, but rents are softening bit. a So the consumer I think is muddling through this. They're not in grave distress at this moment. Would be they happier if interest rates were lower, if gas prices were lower, if food prices came down a bit? Absolutely they would, but they're still there. I believe they will continue spending on their credit cards for the holidays. They're not to going pull back on spending just yet. So if you look at the equity market action today, information tech took a hit and I think the overall index, and by index I'm referring to the S &P information tech tech index down more than 10 % from the high in July. So technically we've entered the correction territory here. How do you view that? Is it a buying opportunity for you? Is there more weakness when it comes to mega cap tech? I think it is a buying opportunity and I think we will get a bit more weakness if we don't see the government shutdown become avoided. It looks like they are getting very close to having bill a to avoid the shutdown, so it just depends on how much the hardliners hold the country hostage. But assuming even if we have a few days of a shutdown, the market will leg down again and that would be a great time get to into the tech names if you don't have them. Again, you want to hold technology stocks for the long haul. I have often said, put Amazon in your kid's college fund, put Nvidia in your kid's college fund. Look for stocks that are going to do well over five to ten years because it will go up, it will go down. Right now, stocks are up because interest rates are up and the market feels that the consumers will be more pinched. But the truth is the big leaders like Amazon are going to continue to go ahead. There is no other place that people shop online that will catch Amazon. I mean, it's going to continue to be the market leader, for example. And that company has a boatload of cash and it's up over 19 thousand percent over ten years. So if you have a long hold period, you want to hold these market leading names that everybody knows that do a great job and you will be safe over the long haul for your retirement or your kids' college planning. Now speaking of Amazon, we'll see where this FTC lawsuit filed today, where it goes from here. Let's talk about, you mentioned higher interest rates. What's happening to U .S. Treasury yields at the moment? I mean, yesterday, we addressed the fact that in the last press conference or news conference from Fed Chair Jay Powell, he was talking about the backup in yield really being more a function of strong growth rather than in its story on inflation. Yeah, and I think you have to include into that the additional supply of U .S. Treasuries. So if you look at the story the way that Powell seems to be understanding it right now, being a growth story,

House OKs debt ceiling bill to avoid default, sends Biden-McCarthy deal to Senate
"The house has passed a bill that veers the nation away from a debt default crisis. The compromise agreement between House speaker Kevin McCarthy and President Biden did not please most lawmakers, but still passed easily. Yeah, he's a three 14, the Nas are one 17. Tonight, we all made history. Immediately after the vote, McCarthy said it's the biggest spending cut Congress has ever approved. Still far right conservatives like chip Roy had vowed to block the bill. You cut a deal. That shouldn't have been cut. Saying the cuts were not nearly deep enough. Democrats said it was far better than the alternative, a potentially catastrophic first ever default on America's debt. The bill now goes to the Senate where majority leader Chuck Schumer said it would move quickly to the Oval Office. I can not stress enough that we have no margin, no margin for error.

The cruel irony behind the fact that it is a day we celebrate a life that comes into this world, making someone a mother is also a day we're here to think about those who are no longer with us.

Debt limit deadline looms as Democrats, GOP spar on spending
"This standoff continues in Congress over raising the nation's debt ceiling with a possible default becoming more of a reality. The Treasury Department has warned the U.S. government could default on its debt as early as June 1st. But Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer says the house GOP can't use that to force Democrats to agree to sharp budget cuts. To sneak their radical proposals through the back door. Iowa Republican chuck grassley says the president will have to meet with a House speaker to work out a compromise. This is an opening bid. It's time for President Biden to stop playing politics. Economist Mark zandi with moody's analytics told lawmakers the political tension isn't helping the U.S. economic recovery. We need to end this drama as quickly as possible if we don't.

Speaker McCarthy faces big test as debt bill heads for vote
"Speaker Kevin McCarthy is vowing the new House Republican majority will approve a package this week that will raise the nation's debt limit and make steep budget cuts. I Norman hall. Speaker McCarthy says the vote will happen this week on a partisan package that would raise the debt limit by $1.5 trillion in exchange for steep cuts that summoned his own party opposed. McCarthy is trying to entice president Joe Biden to the negotiating table. Action is needed to lift the borrowing cab to keep the government fully paying its bills in a matter of weeks, Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer and House democratic leader Joaquin Jeffries say they are unwilling to negotiate over the debt ceiling. McCarthy also has challenges with Republicans, the heart right house freedom caucus has yet to bless McCarthy's proposal. Norman hall, Washington
Speaker McCarthy vows to pass debt bill -- with a big 'if'
"House speaker Kevin McCarthy is pledging to pass legislation to raise the nation's debt ceiling, but speaking on Wall Street, McCarthy said it would pass only on condition of capping future federal spending increases at 1%. Let me be very clear. There's two things I will not do. I will not raise taxes and I will not pass a clean debt ceiling. They just won't pass. Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer wants to hear McCarthy's plan. He went all the way to Wall Street and gave us no more details, no more facts, no new information at all. McCarthy lashed out at President Biden for refusing to engage in budget cutting negotiations, saying the longer he waits to find an agreement, the more likely it becomes that this administration will bumble into the first default in our nation's history. The Treasury Department has said money could run short this summer. I'm Ed Donahue.

But David beer associate director of immigration studies at the Cato institute says the majority of narcotics has seized from U.S. citizens at legal ports of entry. The committee is right to investigate the scourge of fentanyl deaths. But immigrants are not the cause.

The airport, this bill that waited for senators Joe Manchin and kyrsten sinema to sign off in the end, a lot of ground covered Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer says very significant piece of legislation. Our Bill reduces inflation. Lowers costs creates millions of good paying jobs and is the boldest climate package in U.S. history. A general overview is a changes will enable a fight against greenhouse gases to cut gas emissions by about 40% from 2005 levels by the end of the decade. Bloomberg's tax reporter Laura Davison earlier on Bloomberg daybreak Asia. Yes, it is several $100 billion of investments into all sorts of new incentives for green technology. So there's a greatly increased electric vehicle credit for American consumers as well as a bunch of different credits for different types of renewable energy. What's notable in this bill though is that there's also some incentives for fossil fuels as well. Again, it all goes back to Joe Manchin, who was one of the senators who helped cut this deal. He is from West Virginia, a state that is very dependent on coal and natural gas. And so you see that reflected in the overall Bill. Yeah, now that Evie incentive expands manufacturers but puts limits on car prices and income of the buyer. GM and Toyota have argued that it leaves out about 70% of potential buys. Now, meanwhile, the legislation also aims to prevent large corporations from exploiting tax breaks. There will be tax on stock buybacks, although the top 1% avoided the tax increases liberal Democrats had wanted at the beginning. Medicare will be allowed to negotiate drug prices. It does not address implementing the 15% global minimum tax deal.

"The U.S. Senate has passed the so called inflation climate and healthcare bill. It Baxter has global news in the 9 60 newsroom. It yeah, right, Brian, on the narrowest of votes, 51 to 50 with the vice president breaking the tie. Majority leader Chuck Schumer says possibly the most significant bill of the 21st century. This bill will kickstart the era of affordable clean energy in America. It's a game changer. It's a turning point, and it's been a long time in coming. Now, Bloomberg's tax reported Laura Davison says whether it'll help inflation is still a question. But says wealthy Americans did very well. Initially when Biden first trotted this out, you know, over a year ago, there were a bunch of different rate increases on individuals both from income to capital gains, looking at inheritance taxes, all of those got cut at various stages in the process and really all the taxes are focused on corporations. There's two major pieces there. One, which is a minimum tax. A 15% minimum tax for all U.S. corporations, some have the corporate rate in U.S. is 21%, but a lot of companies pay a lot less than that because of different deductions and credits. The other is this buyback tax what they 1% excise tax on corporate buybacks. So curious to see how that plays out, that doesn't go into effect until the start of next year. So we could see a flurry of buybacks in the U.S. until that tax goes into effect. Now, on climate, it will enable the fight against greenhouse gases to cut gas emissions by about 40% from 2005 levels by the end of the decade. Medicare will be allowed to negotiate drug prices it does not address implementing the 15% global minimum tax deal. It says it will extend the 7500 tax credit in EVs to other manufacturers, but there are restrictions that U.S. electric carmakers say will exclude 70% of vehicles. It goes to the house which is expected to pass it by Friday, Nancy Pelosi has tweeted that the house will be back and ready to pass it on to the president. Taiwan has reiterated its vowel not to bow to China's pressure. The drills over the weekend focused on long-range air and ground strikes. The drills were supposed to be over yesterday, but there has not been as to date from Beijing about whether that's true. PLA flew some 66 swords yesterday, including 22 into the Taiwan ADI zone. Ukraine's president volodymyr zelensky is asking for help from the rest of the world to deter Russia from shelling its largest nuclear plant through a translator zelensky says shelling his damaged three radiation sensors.

In San Francisco, Ahmed Baxter, this is Bloomberg. All right, Brian. And thanks very much the time 8 minutes past the hour. Let's get to our guest Carlos Casanova senior Asia economist at ubp. Carlos, what's the stronger read through or take away for the Asian economy and investor? The strong U.S. economy or the more aggressive fit. Thanks for having me on the show. So we have seen Asia as a whole experiencing significant outflows and many central banks resorting to what is pro cyclical rate hiking cycles, meaning they are hiking rates even though employment data and fears about economic overheating are not as prevalent amongst U.S. economy. So the biggest factor in my opinion would be potentially a more hawkish fed as a result of that stronger than expected non payroll data last week. Data dependent. We context through the possibility of another 75 basis point rate hike. We have to see what happens with inflation. This week and also next month. But overall, I think the main drag for the region could be in case we don't see any change in stance or worse even a more hawkish stance by the fed after September 20th. Yeah, it's an interesting cocktail, isn't it really good jobs numbers and really strong inflation. So when you look ahead to those inflation numbers due out of the U.S. on Wednesday, what's your expectation? Do you think we're going to see it peak? So inevitably, if there is an upside pressure on wages in the U.S., that is going to lead to some structural pressures on inflation longer term. So we do think that inflation will peak. However, it will remain significantly above target for the remainder of this year and much of 2023 in fact. We think that the fed will only pivot in case we see a deterioration in labor market conditions. And not really pay attention to the economy, although it would be quite strange for the fed to continue to high grade in case we do see a decline in PMI numbers and an increase in unemployment. But currently, the congressional mandate is inflation and employment. And so those indicators are pointing towards overheating the U.S. economy. So we do think that they will have to implement additional rate hikes and inflation will only start to come down in 2023 and will remain above target the whole of next year effectively as a result of that upside pressure on wages. Basically, over the past 50 years, the fed has always gone too far. Every time it's raised rates until the U.S. economy slows and goes into recession, essentially that's been the story. Why not stop a little sooner than usual? Well, the issue this time around is that if they have had a poor track record in managing soft landings in the past, this year that this time round they don't even seem to be aiming for a soft landing. So there are cost push and demand both factors of inflation. They've admitted that they have very little control over demand pool

"Challenger to Democrat Mark Kelly and a race that could decide control of the Senate. Global news 24 hours a day, on air and on Bloomberg quicktake, powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts and over 120 countries. I'm Mark crumpton. This is Bloomberg. David. Mark, a lot of talk these days about the inflation reduction act that was an agreement between the majority leader Chuck Schumer on the one hand and the senator from West Virginia, Joe Manchin on the other, which really tries to address two major issues we have. One is inflation and the deficit at the same time address a climate with some fairly profound I'm told provisions in there that could really make a change in our climate. If enacted. Welcome to somebody who knows this subject terribly well, she's Christine Todd Whitman, former EPA administrator before running the EPA miss Whitman served as for two terms, as governor of New Jersey. So thank you so much for being back with us. Give us your take on what this proposed legislation might mean for climate. Well, if it were to get through when I would hope that it would, because that's the best way to move forward to deal with the issue of climate. It is, as you point out, it is massive. And it would be a real game changer because it talks about all the different areas that we need to focus on in order to address this with a lot of tax credit programs for investing in cleaner technology. Acknowledging the transportation issue area, excuse me, is a huge issue as far as emissions go that affect the climate and they talk about the post office. Exclusively, going to electric vehicles. You know, there are two things to remember there. That's why it has to be a total package. Electric vehicles are great, but they're only as good as the power used to produce the electricity. So you have to deal with both ends of it. And of course, the biggest fleet in the country as school, school buses. Those are those are the biggest bigger than the post office. Bigger than Apple and any of the others who delivered to our doorsteps. So it is a very comprehensive bill because it does talk about a lot of those things. One of the things that I'm really pleased with is there is a focus on nuclear. To me, we have neglected one of our base power sources that releases no greenhouse gases or other pollutants while it's producing power. The only form of base power that does that. And it's been enormously safe in this country and new technologies such as small modular reactor, salt, fusion, to fusion, salt, reactors, they're all different technologies to bring us a nuclear power that's much safer than anything that we've seen in the past. So I wonder governor if you take us through the respective roles of the government on the one hand, the private sector and the other, because for example, solar power, let's talk about the grid. Moving to solar, the economics that are coming down now and there are private incentives. Why do we need the government to push us along? And the same sort of related question on electric vehicles. We seem to be moving that direction. Why do we need a little thumb on the scale from the government? Oh, I really need it because we've got to move fast. That's the thing. I mean, just look at what's happening to us this summer, not to mention all that went on in the winter, but with the fires with the floods. All of that is mother nature telling us we've really messed up. And we've got to do something and those things cost us billions of dollars in recovery. We had, I think, about, I think it was $7 billion impacts last year, various storms took about a $1 billion each from which to recover. And so we need to be moving faster than we are. Yes, I don't know a major utility that doesn't have an investment. And solar wind, hydro power, but we need more. And we need to do it faster because we are reaching that tipping point and that's going to make it even more difficult than at the from which to recover. And at the same time, we need to be dealing with the fact that we're not going to stop climate change. It's going to continue to happen. And we need to harden ourselves and change the way we build things, where we build, how we rebuild particularly, and how we plan to deal with the various things that are coming at us and fires and droughts. And there is the question, of course, how we do all this without really damaging the economy. I mean, we need to make a transition at the same time, we are going to need fossil fuels for some time to come as I understand it. And there are some provisions, at least some promises in this package as well that would ease some of the fossil fuel choke holds. Yeah, well, I mean, we're not going to do this overnight and fossil fuels are not going to go away overnight. That's why I like nuclear as a bridge to the all renewable. I'd love to be all renewable, but that's not right now. It's peak shaving, not base power, and we're 24/7 society. So it's going to take a while, but you know, we've seen this in the past. We hear the naysayers that say you can not have a clean and green environment and that's why the economy and yet we've shown every time that we've pushed the needle and moved it to more protective environment. We have sponsored actually a whole bunch of new technology, new jobs coming online. And the rest of the world is moving ahead with this. So we should be in the business of making some of these green technologies doing it smarter, doing better with a battery, understanding how we can store

So and will says an integrated market is breaking down. In the summer right now, the UK is pumping tons of gas over to Europe to try to help them fill up those storage. And then in the winter, when we really need a lot of gas, we kind of rely on them as a de facto storage of our own.

in law Now it is a very very long shot They are very very short of votes President Biden says he will move to enshrine abortion rights into law The idea that we're going to make the judgment that is going to say that no one can make the judgment to choose to abort a child Based on the decision by the Supreme Court I think goes way overboard But Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell says stop it He says that's not the real issue today Concentrate on what the news is today Not a leaked draft but the fact that the draft was leaked Now another issue that is being talked about today is how this draft was written Radhika Rao clerked for justice blackman who wrote the majority opinion for the court on roe in 1973 It's really gratuitously insulting of the opinion in Rome that was authored by justice blackmun I was thinking that justice blackman my old boss must be turning in his grave The draft called the role ruling egregious and flawed And so it turns political Bloomberg's Anne Marie Horner and says inflation has been the key issue headed into the inter the midterms but now there is a serious likelihood that abortion and women's rights to choose which has been the law of the lands

Houston Texas Victoria thanks for being with us Everyone is expecting 50 basis point move in the fed funds rate tomorrow I don't think that's really the concern The question is I think for markets right now is that if we have an aggressive fed and we run the risk of recession then what I mean we run the risk of recession I think it's the fed has never dealt well with the condition like this If you look back at how they did in the 70s or 80s or even the 90s you remember we're all bringing back the 75 point hike that Alan Greenspan did and entitled the annis privilege sorry I'm from Texas so my Latin's not very good but if you think about how tough that year was in the bond market the fed is historically not done well navigating markets like this And they really are between a rock and a hard place They have to move up They have to move as much as possible to put as much distance between them and zero So when this economy flips around which it will we definitely think there's going to be a recession Then they can have a little bit room to ease But I think people in my opinion are more concerned about how fast they're going to do balance sheet runoff Don't forget they have that other lever they're planning on pulling and starting that at 95 billion That might go faster You know 75 basis points I think was already priced in 50 50 You know you're looking at ten hikes What's that terminal right going to be And you see that keep inching up you know and we'll see where the dot plot goes but I'm not sure we're going to get anything groundbreaking tomorrow I think we're really going to look at the inflation numbers on the 11th You know they're going to say their data driven data driven give themselves some wiggle room right But at the end of the day they have to move this inflation situation is not going away I think transitory is a bad word now in the Federal Reserve because it just turned out to be a horrible call Yeah well I'm getting a sense that you think a soft landing is pretty much out of the question but a markets braced for a potential hard landing I think you've seen that with the NASDAQ if you looked at some of the bubbly froth area parts of the market you have seen them from really come back down to earth Things that were editing at high multiples And I get you haven't really we're still at an elevated multiples versus history and we can get into a very granular debate about the discount rate and are we going to be higher for longer and is this going to be a massive shift But I always go back to two things that I feel like are groundwork for every investor Number one the foremost dangerous words and investor can ever utter is this time it's different Because it's never different It might feel different It might feel worse You can talk about technology and disruption and all these other things but the market is how it has been ever since the two up bubble in Holland Like none of this is any different than anything we've experienced across hundreds of years It may feel different because of the way information moves it may be a little speedier because of how interconnected we are but it's never different The labor market bottoming out will bring around a recession We've got inflationary pressures housing pressures You know profit margins potentially getting squeezed A lot of pressure on the consumer You have a war in Ukraine a commodity spike that does not seem like it's going to get better You know let's not even talk about potential huge shortages and God forbid that curveball comes back of COVID I mean that's the wild part Horrible Joker in the hole and the way that China is dealing with that just makes everything even worse Everything that you're describing points to kind of pessimism and negativity in the equity market I will call it a bearish stance So if your bearish on the U.S. I'm curious Victoria whether or not other markets across the globe represent value to you right now And that maybe where you're
