Fauci expects tens of millions of coronavirus vaccine doses at start of 2021
"Actually saying millions. They're going to start receiving a vaccine in December. Joining us now is Michael Barr from our 24 7 network with all things vaccine. Good morning, Michael. Yeah. Good morning, Ron. And that's a good place to start because you've got the president who is officially called on the FDA commissioner Stephen Han to join him in the White House today and that since calling Han on the carpet And going to what I'm sure is going to be a grilling over why he hasn't moved faster to approve the Fizer Corona virus vaccine and that meeting's already kind of shaping up to be a little tense. Hunt issued a statement yesterday saying. Let me be clear our career. Scientists have to make a decision and they will take the time that is needed to make the right call on this important decision. What you're hearing out of the White House. Is that their center complaining the FDA is not working around the clock to get things approved. And because of that, you saw the chief of staff, Mark Meadows called Dr Hahn in for a briefing. Now, one of the things that we know is that you've seen Appear to be plane loads on some level of vaccines dropped off in different parts of this country as well as I've seen foreign as well on we're still waiting on the approval from the FDA to give it the thumbs up. We did hear from health and human services Secretary Alex is our yesterday that the vaccine will be shipped within 24 hours of FDA approval. And then, he said, I think rather optimistically that it would be up to nursing homes, hospitals and pharmacies to get that dispensed, and that's true, But you have to get it through the state's first and the states and what the process will be in those individual states. As to how to this first, the vaccine has yet to be determined. We're waiting for that guidance that will come in the meeting today from the CDC. To give a better indication of whether or not the follow through is, Let's make sure that our frontline workers and health officials, the people who are in hospitals and first responders are the ones getting that vaccine first, and then we can start to move into more concerning communities and then who would get things from their That's all relatively true as well. But the states have to kind of break those guidelines down. Based upon the movement from the Trump administration, saying that states would be the ones responsible and that it would be the most populous states and getting the first doses of these vaccines if you will, so there's a lot at play here. There's a lot that's being run through the government that could cause delays. But again, the theory is once the FDA approves it. Those vaccines that are sitting on the runway someplace in Chicago will be able to be dispersed and you could begin getting the vaccines out to people who need it.

Thank you. It's 5 19 on Wall Street live from the Bloomberg Interactive Brokers. Studios. This is Bloomberg. Daybreak. Good morning. I'm Nathan Hager. And even as we continue to see coronavirus cases surge exponentially across this country, we're also getting encouraging news. On the vaccine front, the latest this morning from the University of Oxford on the shot it's developing with AstraZeneca. Let's get more on what Oxford has to say. This morning. We're joined by Bloomberg Health reporter James Payton. Good to speak with you this morning, James and we should know these air phase two trials that the University of Oxford Is reporting on it's not as much progress as we've seen from some of the other vaccine developers. But what are we hearing this morning? Yeah. Good morning to you. Thanks for having me on. So as you said, it's important to stress here that this isn't the big final stage efficacy studies that everyone is eagerly awaiting, And that's going to show whether this vaccine from astronauts furred can Match the results delivered by the front runners, Visor and Madonna. But results of this study today basically show it's an earlier stage study, but it shows that the vaccine produces Similar immune response in old and young adults, and it's better tolerated in older people as well. That kind of builds on some of the promising data we've already seen from the vaccine. So even though it's not the pivotal phase three data, this is important because it essentially shows it has potential in generating an immune response and older adults. And so that's the The group. As we know that's most it risk from severe disease so that holds up. It bodes well for for this vaccine and others But again, as you say, it's it's preliminary, so we'll have to wait for the main results in the coming days or weeks from Master Oxford. Should we expect much difference in the results between face too? And the late stage trials and when can we expect those results? Are we getting any indication on that? Yes. So those results could we don't know exactly when they're going to come. It could be any day. Oxford just said this morning that that those results could come in the in the coming weeks, basically sometime between now and the end of the year. But we should be ready for them, Um, in any moment, and that's the big question. We don't yet know. Both Fizer and Madonna delivered, um, some some really highly encouraging and promising news on the African seafront s o. We don't yet know whether the astronauts we can meet that Hye bar, but this is clearly um Ah, huge moment on the vaccine front. Because it's only been, you know, 10 months the research on all these projects really began about 10 months ago. You know that the crisis only erupted in China less than a year ago s O. It's about 300 days from the start to The visor late stage results, which is remarkable, unprintable, unprecedented speed, So it's you know, it's looking increasingly likely that we will soon have a vaccine to combat covert 19 and obviously Provides a glimmer of hope as we as we go into 2021, but We have to be cautious here because this is inherently unpredictable and complex and their numerous hurdles that all the vaccine developers Neto Neto overcome in the coming months. I wonder if that caution has been what's kept the Oxford Astra shot at Phase two at this point, because people have been following the race for the vaccine, know that Oxford and asked her where the front runners early on what's kept them from getting to that face. Three at this point That's right. They were seen as a zip front runners. At one point in the US, you may recall their trial was on hold for for several weeks. Actually, that was that was a setback. Although the global trials in the U K in South Africa, Brazil elsewhere resumed. I'm pretty clearly if they were, they were halted initially because of concern about a patient of participants in the UK trial who had become sick, But that was that was resolved. The trials have now all been Restarted s. Oh, that That was an issue in the U. S, but probably wasn't too much of an issue for their global their global plans. But this is again I said earlier that it's unpredictable. It could play out in different ways. And so you know it Z too early to say, you know who will be first will be 2nd 3rd, etcetera. Clearly, Madonna and five are now you know is the kind of leadership positions but actually, you know, Astra Oxford are still you know, obviously one of the first and we have to keep in mind that there are something like more than I think you're more than 200 vaccine programs happening globally. So, um, they're clearly one of the first. Yeah, and Fizer said that they're going to try to get in emergencies authorization in the coming days. Bloomberg Health reporter James Payton. Thank you for this really appreciate it. Checking shares of AstraZeneca, their little changed in London right now. Futures are lower. This is Bloomberg.

MasterCard Announces Senior Leadership Changes
"GONNA START WITH. A leadership change and that is Mastercard. Getting a new. Ceo next year January first. Two Thousand Twenty one Michael Barr. Who's the chief product officer is going to become the CEO and Andrzej Banga? Who'S BEEN CO FOR? The past decade is going to be the executive chairman and the fact that shares of MasterCard or down four percent. Today I have nothing to do with these announcements just because expend their for a decade under bengals leadership. This has been a phenomenal stock. He's been CEO for ten years stocks. Return more than thirteen hundred percent since then This seems like a smoothie. Leadership transition as you could possibly hope for fear shareholder. Yeah I I totally agree. I am a shareholder and to me. This is this is one of those things that we we hope for you like a clear succession plan laid out there and the reasons are the reasons you know. I mean we don't know why Mr Bongo maybe stepping down or is stepping down from that role. I mean it sounds like it's it's something that's in line with what he wants to do with his life though and so I think the really for me the the big question for me is GonNa be what it's going to be interesting is if Mr Bongo views are also Mr me box views and what I mean by that. Is You know they've they've run? This business to this point with a certain worldview and there was. There was a really good article recently in the Financial Times. I think it was That that was a focus on Mister Mister Bonga. In the title of the of the articles. Mastercard chief speaks out against nationalism an facebook but it was a really good article because it gave a lot of his opinions that worldview this silent payment systems are stupid. You know. I mean he's thinking why everybody wants to try to build their own thing and makes it fragmented and inefficient. He has big questions over. Libra FACEBOOK'S INTENTIONS. How it's going to make money You know MasterCard was part of that initial Interest Group in pulled out along with a lot of other companies. So it just for me. It's going to be interesting to see going forward. If if they're two views are compatible because if not then you would expect to see some strategy changes over the course of the the next. I would assume at least decade unless unless Mr Limbaugh just doesn't really do a good job in has to step down. I don't anticipate that being the case. He's obviously very familiar with the business But that really for me is the big question is are there to views compatible because that'll that'll dictate a lot of the strategy over the course of the coming decade

"This is the business of sports from Bloomberg radio with scouts arsenic Michael Barr and Evan nobody well yeah thank you very much for joining us we are here each and every week for you at the same time talking to the biggest names in sports and today we're talking with John curry athletic director at Wake Forest and John I get the sense and correct me if I'm wrong but you get a sense that with the championship the way it is that the other bowls perhaps have lost some luster am I wrong well the ratings of the other bowls on television does not tell that story the rating of four of the bowl games are are very high comparatively it is probably you know certainly the attention paid to the new year six and the college football playoff semi finals does take away some of the attention on these games but they're still very popular for the student athletes who participate they are very significant goal institutions want to be part of it and I think they're still very important and we talk about student athlete experience to you know be with her teammates and celebrate university and compete Stover special ever important part of the higher education experience and another part of bowl games you know raising money talking to alumni that there's a whole part of the of this well this week for you that is not even football related at all I understand I think about sixty five percent of Wake Forest alumni live in the tri state area how important is is these five days in New York City for you and for the university as a whole in terms of raising money outside of just football that's a good out of state tuition by the way good for you there was a to sixty five percent probably who's doing what okay not just the tri state but but it is a significant be added as many universities but certainly for our university a significant market if you will and that and the destination of for graduating students xterra about twenty percent of our students are are from the tri state area in a little bit further out into New England so we actually have more student tickets have been purchased for this football game in New York City then were purchased in the athletic department for the golf ball and Charlotte which is you know just an hour twenty minutes away from here back in two thousand sixteen so it's it's a very significant experience for us the the exposure is dramatic the exposed or for the university on almost four million people watched the constraint bowl each of the last two years so having the Wake Forest brand as one of the I think were the twenty seventh rated academic institution in the country and the most recent the US news World Report money having that brand on that kind of stayed in front of that many people is a big deal is there a correlation drawn between success in the athletic arena particularly football and basketball and applications have you seen what happened it's been documented at Wake Forest your history what we went through the all the two thousand six and one ACC championship there was a moment of time in nineteen eighty four when we had a huge spike in the applications after a trip to the elite eight in men's basketball all those those those correlations certainly can happen because of of the exposure of a ball games already two double a basketball tournament brought some given all that it it sounds like new York's a great a great place for you guys to have a ball game right a lot of your students come from there a lot of your alumni live there it's kind of you know great TV audience break down how you guys end up there right it's not just a function of where you finish in the ACC verses where the big ten finisher is it seems like there's a lot riding on your invitation and if it ends up in the Belk bowl that that's maybe not as good for you than it is if you get an invitation from the construct all well the AP C. has excellent ball times in our commissioner John Swofford and our associate commissioner Michael Stricklin about wonderful job working with Paul partners and bring the ACC is actually had the most full panes of any conference over the last several years again this year so the way our model works is there are champion goes to the Orange Bowl or in this case Clinton's our champion of their playing in the semi finals in the orange bowl takes our next he that Virginia this year and then from there it's somewhat of a selection process with a number of different factors be camping world bowl in Orlando has the next tech and then there's a number of cure one bowl pen stripe also the pin stripe all of your American circle the ball for Charlotte the Sun Bowl and el Paso ended the Gator bowl in Jacksonville and the music city bowl of Nashville the cashier one bowl forty when it goes conference and so mother than people being slaughtered to a specific bowl based upon their finished which can sometimes result in the Saint Jean going back to the same ball multiple times or maybe a team that's further away to a bowl is going to ball is too far away and there could have been a team that was closer go to that poll the tier system with intense right being a cure one ball for us enable from logic to come into the mix so this particular case we have really strong relationships with mark Holtzman and rang the bean and Jonny Moseley in the Yankees organization I would say the like fourth got their first choice and I believe mark and Randy and the Yankees would tell you that they got their first person that you see as well up next we continue our conversation

Let's continue our conversation with Carolina Hurricanes owner, Tom Dundee, Tom. We have to ask how did the post game celebration start? It seems to have taken on an energy of its own everyone in the NHL is talking about it was that your idea or did that come from the players. I'm trying to figure out how to make it. My idea. Just say it often enough and people believe it, I know should learn from the president. But. Yeah. No, I had nothing to do with it. I actually missed the first one because I was walking down downstairs and didn't didn't even know what had happened, obviously, really appreciated them doing it. And I think it just shows that they get it. Right. They understand that all the things we're talking about right now. And you know, hopefully now it's turned into something. They can enjoy to right? I think they started off doing it for the fans. And obviously, that's why you do it. And then, you know, hopefully, it's not it's not hopefully, it's something they enjoy to. And you know, it starts to be fun. It's a lot of pressure on these guys up with stuff. I think but you gotta say thank you to Don cherry. I mean, he's the one who said what a bunch of jerks doing this. And and then you guys took advantage of it. And I see it on NHL network. And then you gotta hit the mainstream, but it's got to start somewhere and high collared shirts then took off after that, Don cherry say. It was fortunate for sure awesome. And but look I think it's a great example guys like that that are involved with the league that gets people talking about you. You know, I wish we had more personalities like him. You know, I think I think obviously we benefited from him having opinion. And what I've tried to say is I don't think we're doing it to be jerk. So I definitely thought about after he said it came to the conclusion that you know, that it's no way shape or form malicious but him saying, it's not a bad thing. And you know, we could all learn something from this. Right. Like, you know, he created something that got us entertained and our fans engaged, and he did it. We didn't come up with it. So we we also have to make sure that we remember we have to come up with things to create reasons for you to talk about how valuable has that been from from a marketing standpoint, right? It gets the hockey world and even people beyond just the hockey world talking about the Carolina Hurricanes. Yeah. It's hard to quantify because you know, ultimately, what matters is if you create that winning culture and make the playoffs, and you know, those those things are way more important than all the other little things we can do with social media or around our brand. But I would say it becomes a silly anecdote. You know, if we don't make the playoffs stepping off the ice for a second you made headlines a couple of weeks ago when you made an investment in the AFC the alliance of American football reported originally as a two hundred and fifty million dollar deal. I know you've said that that maybe that's not entirely accurate around the terms of the investment. Can you clear the air here? What exactly were the terms of that investment, and what's your involvement with the af I think the reason the two hundred and fifty numbers out there is that's the amount of capital, it probably takes over time to get this thing to where it can self sustain, you know, like probably every business, right? Every every startup takes capital. That's kind of that story. The my involvement is, you know, I'm trying to figure out how to make sure that this is a compelling place for people to develop players coaches and Rapson technology, and you know, so far, it's it's it's gone. Really? Well, and you know, now, we've got one of our big goals is to create an opportunity for players that are on NFL rosters that haven't got reps to be able to play. And if if that would ever happen. I think it makes us no more interesting for sure so how much have you invested so far probably. Seventy million. I don't know ok p seventy five it's just you know, if you pay every week, right? We gotta get to two fifty if it if it appears that it's going. Well, I just wanna make sure I understand the the number. Yeah. It doesn't the numbers sort of luck. I mean, you guys probably know given business card. You've got if your if your business is successful capital easy. Right. Whether it's mine or somebody else's so yeah. Two fifty is a number that looks about when I invested what based on projections where where it would be. But if you grow faster or bigger, you'll use more capital in the short term because you believe. You know, there's more upside. So with the number. I know it won't be as two fifty. You know, it could be. The chance that it's going to be to the exact that exact numbers pretty small what in the business plan leads you to believe that the af will be more successful or one man standing over the XFL nothing. I don't I don't spend any time thinking about thinking about it that way. Very smart guys. I'm sure they'll do a great job and have something compelling. I think we know what we want to be and. Able to create a place for players to develop to work their way back to the NFL. Then I think that has a place in the world. I'm not I'm not even sure I I'm sure that I have under. I don't know what their business plan is. And. And but once again, they're smart folks that I'm sure they'll come up with something that can be successful. Also, I mean, you know, people look at soccer and baseball and hockey basketball. There's many many many pro weeks, right? So the idea that the idea that this is an either or is probably not something is that a lot of time on the New York papers the last couple of days have had a field day with a Tim Dolan here. The owner of the Nixon the Rangers who had an ex game couple of days ago, essentially throughout a fan who told him yelled at him to sell the team. I'm curious. How would you would need to hear from a fan? Have you of the same reaction? Oh, I they'd probably just have to do something that that wouldn't be anything. They'd say to me. But yeah, I mean, obviously, if someone is using language that wouldn't be appropriate for your families, or whatever. No. I don't care what they say. I mean, if we lose I'm dumb, and if we went on smart, I already that's that's the way this is going to be. So it's not gonna it's probably not gonna bother me very much time. I'm going to give you close with this. I'm going to give you a money-making fan-friendly developed feature fans idea, and I don't need any credit for knows no bunch of the revenue here. But I'm gonna tell you as as someone I told you earlier my nine year olds a top-flight hockey player. We go to plenty of games. You know, what nobody does that? I'm yearning for. You need the fan friendliest up in hockey. I mean, I want every player before he leaves the ice to pick up three four five bucks and make sure the kids around the glass, get one make sure the kids who have a sign you come over here. They'll tip of the capital wave a little whatever and the pucks. I don't want standard black pucks. What I want is spend the action whatever the unit cost is get the logos. Are the two teams and the date of the game and make sure every kid who cares enough to wear jersey and stand up against that glass. Banging waiting for their their favorite player to give them some attention walks home with the puck. You were at school. Don. And. Kids and their parents in the building earlier you sell more soda you'd sell more popcorn. And you'd get kids smiling telling mom and dad can we go back to the game again because I had such a good time. You think the one more than one puck? They're happy with one. No. I mean, we'll come back to get another one without a doubt without end. No, I like it the right thing to do. Anyway. Right. I mean. That makes sense. Right. Well, when when I see it all over NHL network with the hurricanes are doing this was the Genesis, right? You want to call it the sauce Nick warm here, we go. This kids against the glass, and I see their faces when they get nothing and walk back walk away. And like, oh, he threw maybe maybe two or three of the players through a puck over the glass or came over or flipped. It all of them, certainly don't and you should see the face of the kids. You don't get anything when they walk away. I think it's easy enough. You're not wrong. Every every guy before they're done warm up say grab a puck Android over. You know, then you get your twenty at least. Yep. There you go start start with something. All right. Tom of the hurricanes chairman of the alliance of American football. Thank you very much. Thanks, guys. Takeaways this week. I was thinking about why hockey is number four in the four major food groups in the major sports, and I still don't quite understand. Why? No, I do baseball. You can play with the glove and a boy cats basketball, you just need a ball. You get up. It's hard to play hockey. If you don't experience and play the sport as a young kid. It's hard to fall in love with it. But people have football and most people don't. Football. They play flag football. They go out and play tackle football people play football. It's not easy you need ice. It's not like you can get a friend of yours and say, let's go play some hockey. Well, but it comes back to listen as we all know, I grew up in Detroit. And that's the key. I haven't heard you, by the way that's called hockey town. That's I'm saying. We do. And and and we want that up in the interview was like look right across the border. You know, that's my point is popular in Detroit. You have access to ice. It's popular. It's called hockey town for a reason you're proving my point I disagree. I'm just saying I never been on the ice. It looks bored. He's thinking about something that might take it. Okay. You're my takeaways that I gave him the simplest greatest idea in the NHL right now you wanna make more money somehow make the pre game skate. A thing have the best most popular most fun family friendly kid-friendly pre game skate in America all the players. Pick a pucks to all the players throw pucks over the over the glass every kids involved they will come early. They will come often they will buy.

"michael barr" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Of sports from Bloomberg radio with Scott Sasha, Michael Barr, and Evan Novi. William says heroes be natural and compensation. Yes. So thank you very much. This is the you preposition. On the business of sports, Scott, and I continue our conversation because they haven't had too much to do with the president of NASCAR. Steve phelps? We have to bring up a brand new rule this year, and it's important along with the business of sports now. And I'll connect the two I call it the D Q rule that that is out there, can you first of all can you explain that to the listening audience, and then I'm going to get back to why it's important, especially in monsters. Yeah. It's the Michael we do have a new role. Right. And so we are going to expect and look at how we. Inspected cars differently. So we've had things up front that we're doing differently. So if there is a an infraction. The team gets you know, gets an opportunity to try to fix it. And if they don't then they're penalties that that start to be incurred. So the. Something called the car chief will be asked to leave the racetrack in penalizing, restricting practice time things of that nature. So that's the kind of up front piece. And then typically what we would do is. We would take a number of cars, including the winter. We take them back to our research and development facility in North Carolina. And we break that car down to see if there were infractions if there were infractions, then we wouldn't they wouldn't current penalty. And some of those are, you know, a significant number of points as well as the financial hit from a penalty standpoint. So we've decided to do this year instead of doing that. And then coming out with a penalty on Tuesday or Wednesday of that week. We're going to break down the cars the first and second cars at the racetrack. And so within roughly two hours of the race concluding. We will give the thumbs up side that the cars have passed inspection. If they do not pass inspection. Then one or the other than they will lose. It's almost like they didn't come to the racetrack. They will get last place points. They will get last place money and they will forfeit their win. And the guy if it's the guy who had won the race. That is then the guy who came in second is now the winner of the race moves up. You know, what this is going to do away with in this new world, we live in you can't tear up your betting slip, right? When the race is over you better. Hold onto. Yeah. And that's actually a really good. That's a good question right in there. Which is hey from were allowing we're being aggressive on the sports betting front. And so you know that happens in real time. And so there is going to be a winner that is declared and and one that's done. The betting is a betting is this going to be if you're going to pay out on those odds when that happened. So, and that's a that's a part of the difficulty of this. Because you can't you can't expect the car in a in sixty seconds. It literally are tearing down the car to make sure that things are within code. Well, here's the thing that I want to connect this to the sponsors. If a car is d cubed the sponsors, obviously are not going to be happy and that could result in the loss of a sponsorship. And that's that's something. The NASCAR teams are going to have to key. Keep in mind is like all right. Let's see how far I really want to push this because I could blow my whole sponsorship deal. Well, that's exactly right, Michael. This is meant to be a very large a deterrent. So bring your car. You know, bring it legal and get up to the line. You know, kinda the box that we've put you and get up to the line of keeping it legal. But if you go over the line, we are going to Deke you, and that is something that is that's new for us. We've never done that it is important. Are there sponsor implications to it? There are sponsoring applications to it. If I'm a sponsor, I don't want to be involved with you know, someone who is being disqualified. And so that sponsor will voice their displeasure with whatever team that is. And they will bring a a legal car the racetrack. This'll do you think these things will be written into sponsor contracts, a certain amount of I mean because nobody wants that like you said reputational associated. I have no idea. I wouldn't be surprised if that that were the case I mean, we've had on the positive side we've had sponsors. And or drivers were they're being rewarded for making our playoffs right or making to the championship for or winning the title. Could there be something in here? Yeah. 'cause I there are reputational things that that are hanging up that are in play here. And listen, we don't want this to be the story. You know, the story should be about the racing. The story needs to be about the winner. Are we going to have a disqualification this year? I don't know. I I sure hope not. But it's our job to officiate and do it fairly and to make sure that you know, all the competitors are playing by the same roles. What about stars everybody knew Dale Earnhardt? I'm talking about the casual fan like me is certain names. I know certain faces. I know I'm saying for me. I would have a hard time identifying I think the people you identify as the biggest stars in NASCAR. How do you create stars? Yeah. That's a good question. Listen, I think we've had a crop of drivers who have retired. Who were you know, household names and some questions some respects, right? You have Daryl Earnhardt jR. Are you have Jeff Gordon? Tony Stewart danika, Patrick those are big stars. And so we've had all those retiring the last in some others as well. Who've retired in the last three years. So it's our job to work with our race teams drivers to try to build their brands which is exactly what we're doing part of it has to play on the race track. So there's a job for them to do off the racetrack. And they're promoting the sport. They're promoting their sponsors is a big is a big part of that. So what we try to do is. We try to make sure that we are. We are doing everything we can to make them to make them household names. Steve Phelps the president of NASCAR. Of course. When I have my chicken wings, and I'm gonna have my Doritos everything all set that would be ready to watch the Daytona five hundred. Oh my goodness. Tune in folks, Steve thank you so much.

But from a political and cultural perspective. Yeah, terrific question. The book is about the Korean war, and it's a cautionary tale for modern times. Right. In other words, we know what? War on the Korean peninsula, would look like hundreds of thousands if not millions dead that was before there were nuclear weapons involved. So a we ought to take the cautionary message and be we ought to. Remember when China's back was pushed to the wall by MacArthur with US troops surging north. They responded they responded hard. They pushed us all the way back down that peninsula. We should not underestimate China's will in a military conflict.

I'm Michael Barr. This is Bloomberg. Nathan, michael. Thank you five nineteen on Wall Street and live from the Bloomberg interactive brokers studios. This is Bloomberg daybreak and we're joined this morning by Lena Komeda. She's the chief economist at g plus economics. Good to have you on this morning as we continue to watch this global sell off another one this morning. Do you see any economic underpinnings to what's happening this morning? Good morning. Nathan great to be with you. Yes. I do h relate very strongly to the macroeconomic themes that we've been watching this year. And three major themes that. Demento Marcus have changed the sound of the talking about strong years grows and historically either financial conditions with enough to push equity valuations high in the US globally. This is not the case today, and he just a reflection of the sector fundamentals of markets. Trading change twenty eighteen markets and build the return of US rate, volatility, high use weights and a strong US dollar international regime environment, and that's sweet turning to pain trait to market bullets encouraging this kind of diverse can that was driving down equity in the US and Europe and Asia Loa second big geopolitical risk now, filming better. You just have to look at Italy. But also close developments in the US have elections. The US China Malaysia, a trade war. That's getting underway. Finally dynamics basis, basically raising the risk of tuned to a normal economic volatility. We now have the twin issues of rising risk of inflation, overshoot and. Countercyclical gross retrenchment, globally competing, and that is basically a recipe for but you. Ability and higher Marcus volatility going forward. All right, so three broad themes there. But they don't all stand alone. Do the I imagine that they all sort of tie in together. Particularly when you're talking about market volatility and geopolitical risk, I mean is geopolitical risk essentially causing the market volatility. We're seeing I think very much nice can and the key thing as that for the first time in a decade managing down volatility. Financial macroeconomic. He's no longer the main policy focusing coma. Cassette. Instead what we have a twin forces as the fed pushing it rates towards the economy's neutral, basically break even close. He's no longer stimulus is and that easing turn raising the market. Lowering brother Marcus pain, special raising the instituted to the direction of policy risk in the direction of policy risk again for the first time in a decade. No actually dictated by central banks volatility very much in the domain of Joe political risk. And here, I think the risk is the markets. Looking at two thousand eighteen is the peak of the cycle. The peak of that trade where the fickle magic Jews was supporting grace is going to now give way to the results of of what has been an unprecedented debt funded tax cuts late in the cycle. So as pointy nine hundred and gets underway in gross one is to lower levels earnings and no longer rising at the foster rate longest probably going to become more sensitive to the rising cost of debt. So then if if growth continues to slow down as you're arguing here does that affect the rate path that we're going to see from central banks. Could they start to assert themselves? More. I think this is a very critical question. And you're absolutely right. Who's been a key markets, stabilize it in recent years, the so-called policy put oh, the fact that affect would step in whatever there's some kind of. Macroeconomic financial volatility. That increases the risk of this play down. What's different this time around is that the the the bulk of market sort of debating has has happened by price with pricing. Both on the equities in bone side rather than expectations of a much tight aside in the face of weaker economic rice. I think the chances are unless you inflation slowed down next to you. And he's not exactly why that should happen, given they call me is running close to full capacity. Unemployment rate is so no, but the I will actually continue with three more right hikes after December, of course, rate hike this year, so twenty nine hundred and will actually see rates rising above sea percent at the end that we probably really a reinforced if you like the market sensitivity to exultant risks such as political noise or indeed the emerging markets slow down we have less than thirty seconds to go. Leinna. What's the impact? If Europe takes. Unprecedented step of rejecting Italy's budget just quickly. Well, I think that was real real full out. I think the the ultimate school syntax. He's a political noise. But what's really happening is that the market is looking at the standoff between Italy and their pink commission as the beginning of of a you fragmentation. In other words, everything nomination risk is back in that your own government on pricing for the first time since the eurozone crisis. This is the ECB is preparing to stop buying government. Both going to be at the end of this year. We haven't seen that movie enfold yet. I think there was always probably going to be a much higher volatility. All
