"Study babies economy grew at the fastest pace since 2011 last quarter with a higher oil prices driving up the activity. Simone foxman is in Doha looking across the numbers. So it's not all or is it all purely correlated to oil prices? Come on, good morning. Yeah, good morning, menace will clearly oil prices driving a lot of this growth, but the non oil economy number still very strong. So let's compare them. We were looking at 23.1% year on year GDP bump from oil economy versus 5.4% from the non oil GDP. And this isn't really a surprise given the effect that Saudi Arabia was making somewhere to the tune of about a $1 billion a day from its oil exports. But if we drill into that non oil economy number a little bit, you know, it's still quite strong and I've stripped out when I'm looking back through the dad. I stripped out some of the 2021 data because there's some base effects from the COVID recovery. And this 5.4% number is still one of the strongest numbers we've seen since 2014. Think of other things going on as well. Lowest unemployment for Saudi citizens since 2008 are also looking at 22 straight months of expansion from a PMI basis. So this is probably a welcome number for Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, which has really been pushing forward this idea of non oil GDP, even if it is overshadowed by the number we're seeing from the oil side. And then in Iraq in the meantime, we have some new political unrest. What is the latest over the weekend? Yes, supporters of Muqtada Al Sadr. He's an influential Shiite cleric. They stormed parliament and are occupying parliament until they say fresh elections are called. Has been aligned essentially against some of the Iran backed parties. He won the most votes in the last election, but was unable to form a government and now he is calling for radical change to the political system. So things he wants in addition to new elections, the dissolution of parliament and changes to the constitution at minimum for the moment a controversial prime minister that was backed by those Iran backed parties isn't going to immediately become prime minister he was a candidate there, but the concern really as we hear calls from the other side for its supporters to go out into the street is that ultimately these mostly peaceful protests so far are going to turn into violence. And that is the risk, isn't it Simone? One thing which will certainly be focused on during the European session and by the way across the world is going to be the grain corridor from turkey. It says that that corridor could very crops from Ukraine today or tomorrow so that's going to be a big focus for the region, isn't it? Yeah, that's right. And just in the last couple of minutes, actually, we heard from the Turkish Defense Department who says that corn products have been loaded onto a ship in Odessa and that's meant to go to Lebanon today. So underscoring how important the crops from Ukraine are to this region. But Lebanon also in the crosshairs of some of these concerns about stolen goods. So Russian companies stealing Ukrainian crops and then selling them to Lebanon Lebanon is actually seized a ship over the past couple of days that it's concerned has actually pilfered those Ukrainian supplies. And so it's investigating the matter right now. But you know, it's worth remembering, even though we're looking at wheat prices a little bit down today, likely on this news of the green corridor, that folks buyers in this region are paying up for grain in prices that are not directly translating to what's happening in the futures market. Egypt's Egypt's finance minister saying they're paying double for every import of bushels of wheat. Simone. Yeah, those are some very impressive numbers somewhat foxman at the kind of financial center in Doha. I want to say with commodities go from soft commodities to some of the metals because you think about steel making, you think about the key ingredient being iron ore. A lot of volatility in this session with the surprise contraction in China in terms of factory activity. And now this rebound towards a $120 per ton. This is intraday on the Singapore contract. Basically a recovery in steel, mills, margins, offsetting the concerns that we got in terms of the eco story out of China. Keep an eye on dollar yen. I think what's interesting here is this is the fourth day in which you've seen a rally in the end, which tells you a little bit about dollar maybe some would say topping out because of Paul's comments last week, but it is day four of a rally. The hedges have cut their shorts back to a level that we haven't seen since 20 21. So a little bit of modest yen bullishness. We'll take you to London and daybreak Europe next. Economics. All this doom gloom is out there finding. Do you see this as a technical

"France is up next. We'll have the details. We have some breaking lines hitting the Bloomberg from the corporate earnings season. This is from one of the major construction material players, Swiss giant wholesome, so they're coming through here with a second quarter sales number of CHF 8.24 billion, the market had been looking for CHF 7.84 billion so that is a beat on the second quarter sales front and net sales growth guidance 2022 is up at least 10% that coming through from wholesome year to date the stock has been on the pressure, but it's actually outperformed the main index. They're involved in all kinds of cement manufacturing facilities worldwide, a household name as it were, and we will await to see what the market how the market digests the information. I want to get back to the action in Asia though and see some of the highlights that David's looking at. He joins us from our Singapore or rather Hong Kong studio, David. Yeah, yeah, youssef or the lack of action because you have prices done as you can see half of 1%. Volumes are about 30 to 40% lighter. So really just caution ahead of the fed you talked about some of the tech earnings and that's leading to what you're seeing as far as NASDAQ futures are concerned. Alibaba's done pulling this one are these two benchmarks down. Also some concern over property and some fundraising here, pulling both of this down. We got some data out of Australia, Aussie assets looking like this. The short of it is you had a miss on CPI, still quite high. Now, that traders though, because of that myths are pricing out a big or a supersized rate hike out of the RBA. That's a meeting next week. As you can see, that's the price action ahead of that on the back of the data. And just very quickly, I'll end on this. I talked about Alibaba and I talked about country guarded just to put a number really esky heineck was out with earnings, chip maker here. And many saw that's a stock listen here in Hong Kong. Just went public in fact here, short seller report done 10% on the stock during the lunch break. In the morning session that is. We are in a lunch break still. Yusuf. Sounds like a great lunch break. Thanks, David. To follow that, that's David English. Let's get to Saudi Arabia now, because The Crown prince Mohammed bin Salman has arrived in Greece, embarking upon his first trip to Europe since 2018. So when foxman has been watching this from Doha. So Simone, as we saw some of these images come through, remarkable delegation that's head out. This is not just a quick visit. I mean, the whole almost the whole cabinet, the joint The Crown prince. No, it's not just a quick visit. I'll massive delegation going along with The Crown prince. And The Crown prince himself in a speech transcript of which was distributed to a reporter's says he's not coming empty handed. The most tangible things we do expect to see here are in the realm of trade and investments. Some of the things that have been thrown around with respect to the grease portion of this visit that continues today have been a linkage of an electricity grid in southern Europe, a data cable that's going to run under the Mediterranean. Also a project and this is really interesting to potentially make Greece a hub for hydrogen for hydrogen fuel for Europe in the future. So interesting to get any more details there. We're watching out for those. But figuratively, there is a really important here because clearly crown prince Mohammed bin Salman showing his return to the global stage after facing so much uproar around his involvement in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi back in 2018. This is his first visit to Europe. Now, as he goes on, we're going to be also watching for any comments around oil ahead of a crucial OPEC plus meeting on August 3rd so far, the message has been, we stand with OPEC plus. That's from various Saudi officials, but whether or not we also get an increase in production, that's still an open question. And then one Saudi family office is making a surprising investment that has to do with Israel. What details have emerged? Yeah, this really caught my eye because we don't see a lot of Saudi investments in Israel because they don't have diplomatic ties. But meet that capital, which is the family office of the el raji family, may remember all of our Chi bank. That all raji family making investments in two companies Israeli based companies that are listed in the U.S. and the UK, the most recent of which is utter nomo technologies. This is a company that aggregates car vehicle data and tries to analyze it also has made an investment recently in tremor international. That's a public relations firm. Despite the lack of diplomatic relations between these two countries, we spoke to the managing director of this family office yesterday. And he said, yes, we're sector agnostic. We're country agnostic, but like the innovation and technology culture that Israel has, and we're looking for ways to benefit from that. And away from Saudi Arabia to Iran and the nuclear deal in ominous news for those are seeking a revival to that agreement from 2015. What's the setback that came through? Yeah, well, we got an editorial from Joseph Burrell, the EU's representative and the chief coordinator for these talks in the FT yesterday. And while the title of this sounded a little more optimistic than it was, which was now is the time to save the nuclear deal, really this essentially signaling that the time for diplomacy is done. We've got to deal

"Signed a new executive order this week to try and help Americans who've been unlawfully detained in other countries. The move gives the federal government the authority to impose sanctions or other measures against state or non state actors over these detentions, but what happens when Americans are held by countries that are already under strict U.S. sanctions for other issues. I talked with ambassador roger carstens. He is special presidential envoy for hostage affairs. And I asked him how the new executive order helps U.S. citizens like Brittany griner, who's been jailed in Russia since February and other detained Americans. I think the best answer is that we're going to have to explore that. Every case is specific, a lot depends on the information that we're receiving. It depends on partnering with the families. And in some cases, you'll find a sanctioning tool probably very effective to put pressure on the other side. In other cases, not so much. I think overall the sanction tool is going to offer a chance to deter people in the long term when they see it being used. But whether it's going to specifically be the spring that gets Britney grind or Paul wayland free that is yet to be seen, we'll have to explore that with the families and also with the rest of the inner agency. Let me ask about a situation in Iran or in Russia. I mean, when Americans are held in these countries that are U.S. adversaries. How do they not become political ponds? I mean, when you think about Iran, the U.S. right now is trying to negotiate over Iran's nuclear program. The two have to be intertwined, right? The issue of hostages becomes a leverage point. You know, it might. I can tell you that I think throughout history you'll find where the subject of hostages or even prisoners of war can be detached from the broader issues of policy. Good example is Russia, even though we seem to be a loggerheads in the Ukraine with against Russia. We were still able to negotiate a return of Trevor Reed. So it's never quite clear until you get into the specifics of each case in each country about what can and can not be used as leverage and who can use it. But the bottom line is that we are able and have since I've been in this job for two and a half years, been able to negotiate and distance ourselves from the other policy objectives. Trevor Reed, as you noted, was released from Russia in April of this year. It was part of an arranged prisoner swap when do these agreements work and when do they not work? Again, it's really country specific. I happen to be a part of the Trevor Reed swamp. I think you might have seen some photography of the tarmac switch and I was there as part of that. And so intimately, I guess, familiar with that swap. And I can tell you that every case is still different. At times, a prisoner swap can be considered, such as in the case of Trevor Reed. Other times, it's just absolutely the wrong tool to be in wrong negotiating point to be bringing to bear. Can you walk us through the difficulties that arise when a country that's supposed to be our ally like Saudi Arabia detains U.S. citizens unlawfully? I think whether a country is someone that we're I guess a loggerheads against or whether we happen to have better relationships with them, really the bottom line is meeting with that country, finding common points that we can discuss and really just sitting down and asking them, what can we do to solve this? And that's really the way to get things done. It's no different than probably any other negotiation, but I would say that to most this seems like it's a little harder because in many cases the countries are actually picking up a human being and using them as a bargaining chip. President Biden was just in Saudi Arabia. He met with The Crown prince Mohammed bin Salman. There were a whole range of contentious issues on the table, but did he raise the issue of Americans being detained? The president did raise the issue of Americans being detained. In fact, I can tell you we raised the issue at every juncture. But I will make one correction. Right now, there are no Americans that are wrongfully detained. There are Americans that were wrongfully detained, currently we have Americans that we're concerned about because they're on what we consider an exit ban. They're not allowed to leave the country. And yet at every juncture that we can at every meeting at the senior level, we bring that topic up. Diane foley's son James was killed by ISIS in 2014, miss foley said that her family received little to no information from the State Department about the status of her son when he was in ISIS detention. Other families as you know have also complained about lack of transparency, lack of communication with the federal government, I understand this executive order now promises to do better, but why have these families been left in the dark for so long? I have to gently push back on that, Rachel, and this is what I would say. I spend one to four hours every day talking to families. And that's 7 days a week. That Saturday and Sunday. I would say the people on my staff do the same. In these calls, we're very forthright about what we're doing and what we're trying to achieve. Every time we take a case, I will physically fly to wherever that family is. And spend three or four hours in their living room, describing what we're trying to do, what our organization looks like. And I will tell them everything up to the level of secret and top secret information. Then why did it need to be articulated in the executive order? I think it's the institutionalization of everything we're doing. There was a time not long ago shortly after my office was created. That there were only a few people in the office. We did not necessarily have the institutionalized structure that we currently have that we've been building on. And so to get it in public law to get it into an executive order, keep strengthening the institution. So that one day should people change personnel change to the situation change. You still have a government that is being directed by public law that's being directed by the president to do better at sharing information. And I think the one thing that the executive order does to my mind is that it gives us a little more, I guess you could say support in trying to declassify information that we want to share with the families. You worked under the Trump administration on this issue, and now the Biden administration, how do the two administrations differ in their approach to this important issue? Well, I think that's the beauty of what we're trying to do in building the institutions is that there shouldn't really be a difference between administrations as they change. We treat this as an American problem. It's bipartisan or you could call it nonpartisan. And I think you'll find that not only are we trying to, as I say, come up with ways that we are going to do business institutionalizing what we do, but I can share that there are members on Capitol Hill that are both Republicans and Democrats that offer their support to our efforts and our job is to make sure that we do the president's will. And the president of the United States, President Biden has been very firm about making this a top priority and ensuring that we're doing everything we can to bring these

"Capability for drones. And these are lethal drums. It's also an indication of the pressure that's being put on mister Putin's war machine that he himself now has to turn to a country like Iran to resupply his own loss of drones in the war. The Biden trip began with a new agreement between the U.S. and Israel to partner in stopping Iran's nuclear ambitions. The CBS News correspondent Ed O'Keefe reported me any time the president facing backlash for that fist bump with Saudi prince's Mohammed bin Salman. The president going to Saudi Arabia is to talk about energy and human rights violations, but the fist bump is being criticized as shameful. Politico's White House in Washington reporter Daniel lippmann saying, critics need to realize the complicated diplomatic relationship between both nations. Critics sometimes just don't live in a perfect world. And we can't really choose the leaders of other countries. And when we do, it turns out often disastrously. Look at the Iraq War. And so I think people who are more, you think, in terms of human rights versus just the realism that is taught in international relations, they were mad about the trip. Political was Daniel lipman. COVID cases and hospitalizations are rising again 6000 hospitalizations a week, up 12%. COVID's comeback is catching many off guard. The surge fueled by the omicron sub variant BA 5, the strain now responsible for almost two out of three new infections nationwide. A lot of people close to me who haven't gotten at these last two years. Have gotten positive in the last couple of weeks. In the U.S., the CDC is tracking about a 110,000 new COVID cases a day, but health experts say the actual number of cases is far higher because many who home test do not self report. That is Tom wait of kcbs TV, so how bad is this latest strain be a 5? CBS News medical contributor, doctor David agus. It is so infectious. You know, it's on par with the most infectious viruses we as humans have ever seen. And what that means is small numbers of virus particles are necessary to get somebody else sick. So before you needed, say a thousand particles. Now it's a hundred particles, so you have to use caution with BA 5. It's a new era, really as it's peaking over the next several weeks, we all have to watch out wherever we are. The CDC tracking

"I'm Brendan Hazleton, Jacob Kerr, as our producer. Top stories we're following for you this afternoon, President Biden has been in Saudi Arabia today where he met with crown prince Mohammed bin Salman. The presumed heir to the Saudi throne is considered by U.S. intelligence to be responsible for ordering the killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Jamal Khashoggi will you apologize to his family, sir? On prince Mohammed bin Salman smirked, but ignored a reporter's question about the critic and Washington Post writer U.S. intelligence agencies believe he ordered killed, seated across from him at his royal palace, President Biden, who had pledged as a candidate to make Saudi Arabia a pariah, respecting the murder of Khashoggi. I raise it at the top of the meeting. The president also plans to meet with other midi leaders here this weekend to discuss energy countering Russia, China and Iran in a delicate ceasefire in Yemen. Steve Dorsey CBS News Jeddah Saudi Arabia. Well, there's been new Russian shelling in Ukraine over the last few hours and double DT ops national security correspondent JJ green joins us live with more details JJ. Yeah, there's been significant Russian shelling in the last few hours, as you said, this activity has essentially been targeting the dnipro in the northern part of Ukraine. That's been their target today for the last few hours. They've been missile strikes at least three people have been killed. Another half dozen or more have been injured. And that's not the only place there have been other places that they've targeted today, but for some reason De Niro has faced the lion's share of Russia's missiles today, but Ukraine in another storyline that's emerging today has shot down four of missiles launched from Russian territory or at least from Russian Russian military, assets towards dnipro, some of them from hundreds of miles away in the Caspian Sea region, they've shot these missiles down. This means that Ukraine has put that long-range missile defense system technology that they've been getting from the U.S. and others into service and it appears as though they are working. Russia's continuing to launch missiles as night has fallen there. It's almost 1134 there. They're continuing the launch missiles, but these systems that Ukraine has gotten from the west appears to be doing yeoman's work in protecting the nation tonight, reporting live, JJ green, WTO news. JJ, can we say at this point where this war is headed? One day there's a lull. And then the fighting picks back up. What do we think is next? Well, that kind of is the narrative when it comes to war. You can never predict where essentially a day will go unless you have some kind of definitive understanding of the strategy and Russia doesn't have one. We do know that Ukraine is trying its best to defend the country. So Russia is doing what it can do. I mean, since withdrawing from snake island on the 30th of June, Russia has been attempting to deny Ukraine, the ability to use it. But on the 13th of July, air strikes by two Russian fighter jets fail to hit that island, and this is significant because it shows the pattern of Russia's air forces failing to successfully engage in this tactical battle. And if Ukraine is able to own that airspace and own that island, they can continue to do what they need to do to liberate their grain to liberate their economy. Russia appears to be failing by trying to essentially attack that area, but it seems as though they're failing in other parts of the country as well. The intelligence we're seeing today suggest that Russia is really falling into a situation where it can't predict what it's going to be able to achieve from one day to the next. All right, JJ, thanks. WTO's JJ green 5 35 and once again, West Virginia democratic senator Joe Manchin is back in the news as he tussles with The White House over several bills this time we were talking about a broad economic Bill on the hill that lost mansion's vote, he has objected to provisions addressing climate change as well as tax hikes for rich people and corporations.

There are a lot of people who have found this to be an incredibly lucrative project. And that is predominantly the consultants and the people who come from outside to work there.

"Bloomberg television. This is balance of power on Bloomberg television and radio. I'm David Weston. It's another day. That means it's another day for President Biden over the Middle East. Once again, in Israel and we turned out our Washington correspondent with him over in Israel and Jerusalem and rih horder. For those of you on radio, I'll tell you it looks like a beautiful evening. One of those typical beautiful summer evenings in Jerusalem. I'm envious Anne Marie. So what did the president get accomplished today? I absolutely gorgeous evening David. Thanks for having me. So today the president had a press conference with the prime minister caretaker prime minister, remember Israel doesn't have a government at the moment. And really at this press conference, he declared the U.S. support is ironclad for Israel and they also discussed about extending that agreement that goes to 2028 in terms of billions of dollars of defense for Israel, but they didn't give us an end date for that. Remember, this was one of those very difficult negotiations under the Obama administration with the former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the president also met with today because he is the opposition leader and really one of the biggest topics of today, David, was about Iran and how the president says he will not allow Iran to get a nuclear weapon and that it's up to the Iranians to take the deal that is currently on the table. So that was really the heart of the conversation today in Jerusalem. It is really going to shift tomorrow and the president becomes the first U.S. president to fly from Israel to Saudi Arabia when he meets with king Salman and crown prince Mohammed bin Salman. And as I understand it and Marie, even though you were in Jerusalem, the question of what happens tomorrow and the ensuing days with The Crown prince Mohammed bin Salman was not far from people's minds. Actually, the president was asked about it, isn't that right? Yeah, he was asked about and he'll constantly be asked about it because this is really a difficult line for the president to walk. It's the country he had vowed to make a pariah when he was campaigning. And now he really needs the kingdom to help him out. His biggest domestic problem is gasoline priced in inflation and the kingdom has the spare capacity to potentially help balance the oil market and how the administration would like to see a little bit more oil coming on to the market. He was asked though today about whether or not he would bring up the killing the murder of Jamal Khashoggi. The president has said that he has made it very clear his stance on Jamal Khashoggi didn't say he would bring up that exactly when he meets with crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, but did say he would bring up human rights issues, David. Yeah, at the same time, we don't know whether it will raise the question of Khashoggi. Do we not that they'll talk about security issues in the region, including involving Israel and most importantly, once again, Iran. Yeah, so on the Israeli front, the president said today they do want to continue and seek out more countries to normalize with Israel. We have Morocco, Sudan, the United Arab Emirates, as well as Bahrain under the Trump administration normalizing with Israel and they would love to see that relationship with the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, but the Saudis have made very clear that there could be no normalization, at least officially, David, when it comes to the two nations because

"Recession is being priced on both sides of the Atlantic, a slightly deeper one in Europe. But I don't think the market is really poised for any significant or prolonged recession. Short and shallow, there seems to be the consensus. That was Peter Oppenheimer, the chief global equity strategist at gom and Sachs from New York City this morning. Good morning, in case your market, we are positive a third of 1% on a S&P up 11 on the NASDAQ 100 up about four tenths of 1%. Yields come in a couple of basis points, two 95, 65, and do you want to call this a bounce after the mess of yesterday on crude Tom? We're at 1%. 96 80. It's a good point, John, because I think the whole screen looks stasis here. Turkish leader unravels renminbi has got some stasis to it. I just think there's a whole pause here, John all in all. Equities bonds, currencies, commodities waiting for ether. Energy and focus waiting for a 30 year CPI, then waiting for later this week too. Jake Sullivan Tom in the last 30 minutes or so, the president's national security adviser basically tan and Gus that a president will meet with a Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman on Friday evening. Put that in the diary. It goes back to the Iran Iraq War. And it is VA's UAVs excuse me, not University of Virginia. You AVs, which are drones, and the zeitgeist this morning away from the president's trip in the diplomacy is the fear of Iranian drones aiding mister Putin in Russia are in recording his in Jerusalem where this will be one of the topics every tie in the meet and greet the photo ops with a hardcore fear of these selected parties of Iran and their ability to take legitimate military technology from the Iran rock war from 30, 40 years ago and bring it forward to aid mister Putin. Well, really, you have the Russian Iranian ties, incredibly strong, especially as Vladimir Putin, we do know is continuing this war, which has now become a war of attrition, but is really locked out of dealing with the number of countries. So places like Iran, places potentially like China are going to be those avenues. He is going to work with to try to secure some of these weapons. That is one part and concern of this trip. And the president outlined this as well in his opinion piece in The Washington Post over the weekend. One of the reasons why he is saying in defense of his visit to Saudi Arabia considering the fact that there's many that is critical of this visit to the kingdom is because they are trying to counter a Russia also in Iran. That is not back in the nuclear agreement as well as China. But this in the region is a huge issue. And this is something that can you have the Israelis and the Saudis coalesce around. And that is about a united front against Tehran. Anne Marie, as we hear about the potential meeting with Mohammed bin Salman, what is the potential political fallout from this meeting from this trip given some of the concerns about human rights violations of The Crown prince? All eyes will be on this on this meeting and this will go down in history books, whether or not it's a handshake or a photo op. The president campaigned on making Saudi Arabia a pariah. He talked about there was no redeeming qualities of the current government. It has led obviously by king Salman, but the day to today operations, everyone knows, is led by The Crown prince Mohammed bin Salman. The president then, when he came into office, released that intelligence report that said that Mohammed bin Salman approved the killing of Jamal Khashoggi a Washington Post columnist. He has now had to deal with domestic policy concerns, which is higher gasoline prices, and you can not fix the oil market without Saudi Arabia. Yes, Saudi Arabia alone can not fix it, but they are the Central Bank of crude. You can not go and try to bring down gasoline prices without engaging in the kingdom. And so now the president is going to go there and this is going to be a huge about face on what he wanted to do with the kingdom, but in his op-ed beat, he talked about the fact that he wanted to reorient, not rupture. But he also just days after he was inaugurated, said that he was only going to deal with the king. He will now be dealing with crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, and this is something that all eyes will be on. And potentially, after this meeting, he will get some more barrels on the market and potentially that can help him in November. Okay, some barrels, but is the juice worth the squeeze at a time when spare capacity is not that great. When you have not that much left, that they can possibly pump according to a whole host of analysts and you have other OPEC nations. They can't even keep up with their quotas as is. Well, the president is going to have to try to deal with this at home domestically right now, inflation, poll after poll is the number one concern. So to use your phrase juice for worth the squeeze, I think to this administration at this moment, it is, but also to think that the administration was never going to have to deal with the kingdom over the course of four years is naive to a lot of people who look at this region. This is the biggest economy. They also want to expand upon the Abraham accords. A huge country for Israel to do that with would be the kingdom. So at some point, the president was going to have to write this op-ed or make this trip. I'm Marie folding in a deep knowledge of oil markets and OPEC AMH. Thank you with the latest Ed Morse. Here's the latest from city. This is what he's got to say. Tom, you're like this. Oil is more likely to hit 50 than one 50. Ed moss going on to say a slowdown in global growth could come alongside robust supply growth if prices fall into the 60s or the 70s. He suggested OPEC plus may well act again to support them. And what's important in your job. First of all, it's a victory lab for doctor Morris. He's been lonely and very dead on in the pullback here from one 24 to 100 on Brent crude. I'm going to call that a 20% decline. John what's so important here is the global political economics of Edward Morse is about nothing more than declining demand. I can't emphasize enough the bull say bigger demand, bigger Pacific Rim demand and has more says, guess what? No demand price down. That was not in the OPEC outlook for 2023. Was it Lisa? Not in a material way at all. No, they basically were projecting out that demand was going to outstrip supply materially for the upcoming years. And this really flies in the face of what we're seeing in the price action. I mean, how do you understand the decline that we've seen in crude prices facing off with one report after another from the main oil producing nations saying, this isn't going to stop this dynamic is here to stay. Gasoline prices are coming down with that provides some relief on CPI in July. For the month of June, we're looking for 8.8% headline year over year. A lot of people in this market will be very focused on a month over month core figure. As we often say, Tom, headline year over year, that's the front page of the Main Street newspaper for Wall Street focused very much on a month over month figure and what that would mean for this fed. It's very British. I mean, I'll go with that for the month over the month.

Us government will not proven a summary of findings issued by us intelligence agency state that saudi arabia's crown prince approved two thousand eighteen killing of jamal. Khashoggi it's been long suspected that prince mohammed bin salman defacto leader ordered the murder but the release of the summary finding sends a clear signal. That president biden's taking tougher stand against the kingdom than his predecessor. Npr's jackie northam has been following developments and joins us. Jackie thanks so much for being with us morning. Scott hi please give us an overview of the main findings right well just to be clear. There's no smoking gun but you know. There's a lot of circumstantial evidence in this two page report. And let me just read you a line from it. If i could quote the crown prince has had absolute control of the kingdom security and intelligence organizations making it highly unlikely that saudi officials would have carried out an operation of this nature without the crown prince's authorization unquote and scott. It goes on to say that members of his close inner circle were involved. In the killing and dismemberment of kashogi and the crown prince has supported the use of violent methods to silence dissidents abroad. And you compare what's in this report to what president trump said when asked about whether the crown prince had any knowledge of the killing and he downplayed it saying maybe he did. Maybe he didn't and One of the things to keep in mind. You know this report is a summary and there's a lot more evidence that the cia has about khashoggi's death that remains classified this report summary note but Does seem to say pretty bluntly that. The saudi crown prince has blood on his hands What kind of potential impact Could this happen relations between the us and saudi arabia. Which after all has been a very close ally for decades right. yeah well. it's it's definitely bound to have an impact you know. The crown prince is likely to become king of saudi arabia. And we'll be around for a very long time and it'll be interesting to see how the us will deal with him both in the short term after this report and certainly in the long term once he becomes king. We don't know how that's gonna shake out yet but as you say. Saudi arabia is a longtime ally in a really strategically important area of the world. You know in an interview with npr. Yesterday admiral hanes the director of national intelligence. Said it was just too soon to tell if the relationship has been damaged by this. Let's have a listen. It is not surprising. I suppose to see a shift in the relationship in some ways with the new administration and a new position and the number of challenging issues that we face together. But i think there will be what he's to whether the various storms that we have in front of us and one other thing. The saudi foreign ministry said on friday that the kingdom has already jailed. Those responsible for kashoggi's killing and that while it completely rejects the reports findings it called. Us saudi relationships robust and enduring. Jackie calls from From many quarters Clothing members of congress Human rights organizations calling on president biden to to punish sanction of the crown prince For his role in khashoggi's death. How likely does that seem to be. Biden's stop short of severely punishing the crown prince. But he said on. Friday evening that from now on the kingdom is going to be held responsible for human rights abuses and he said that there would be more significant changes announced on monday. He didn't indicate what those might be. But you know the administration did take some other steps yesterday. It announced something called the kashogi ban which allows the state department to impose visa restrictions on anyone acting on behalf of a foreign government Who's threatening dissidents overseas and it's already imposes kashogi ban on seventy six saudis and their families. And you know secretary of state. Anthony blinken talked about these moves by the us yesterday. Here he is. So what we've done by the actions that we've taken Is really not to rupture the relationship. But to recalibrate to be more in line with our interests and our values but apparently this travel ban doesn't include the crown prince himself and administration officials said on background yesterday that as a matter of practice. The us doesn't apply sanctions on the highest leadership of countries with which it has diplomatic relations and already there are increasing calls for tougher action against the saudi crown print

The intelligence findings were long known to many us officials and even as they remain classified have been reported with varying degrees of precision but the public rebuke of crown prince.

Americans will forever associated with the brutal killing of a journalist who promoted democracy and human rights yet even as the biden administration released the findings it appeared determined to preserve the saudi relationship by avoiding direct punishment of the prince himself despite demands from some congressional democrats and kashogi allies for significant and targeted sanctions.

There is no place for others to really partner in this vision in this what he calls modernization. What is the significance of this sentencing coming when it when it does 2.5 years after she was first jail? So I mean, at this point. The conviction at this at this time especially is is definitely a strategy by the Saudi authorities to try and, you know, minimize the global attention to the case. You know she's been convicted, treating the holy days when they're banking on the world, not paying attention to this. It is unclear why they had rushed. Her trial s so quickly the terrorism court after it had been suspended for a year and a half after she had been jailed for two years and a half and have been subjected to torture and sexual assault and harassment. And so this rushing of her trial at the terrorism court, which is which is victorious and quite abusive and where unfair trials have been rampant. Really just goes to show that you know they Saturday government fused woman's rights activism is a form of terrorism him, But were you surprised by this sentence?

S. doesn't believe this it's placed both those men on on sanctions for involvement in the killing well then you have the question of the crown prince I mean Saudi Arabia maintains that he had nothing to do with this I mean have we learned more about this killing in in the time since so many questions we still don't know what exactly happened but what seems clear is that the the Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin someone who initially said that he knew nothing about it probably did know what we know about this very grisly killing is mostly from the Turkish government he was killed in the consulate last October after he went there to get papers for his marriage and during that time he was confronted by Saudi agents who had flown in on a private plane one of them the head of the autopsy department carrying a bone saw the Turks released what they say are recordings of part of the process in which she was killed the body disappeared his remains still haven't been found can you just step back for a minute I mean you mentioned the US sanctions on some of these people believed to be involved here how much has the US Saudi relationship been impacted by a bucket so Jeez death in an investigation since then well shop was a columnist who wrote for publications including The Washington Post he was a U. S. resident Saudi Arabia's not seen as as the most fantastic of allies not just for this but for its involvement in in the war in Yemen and other things but there are a couple of things about the US Saudi relationship one is and perhaps the most important one is the president trump really values this relationship as does his son in law Jared Kushner who has bonded with the Saudi crown prince trump has made the point that there are billions and billions of dollars at stake in U. S. arms deals arm sold to Saudi Arabia and that doesn't really wash with a lot of other officials and in fact the Senate has asked for the head of the US intelligence to come and brief them on what they know because the CIA has concluded according to a lot of reports of that in fact the Saudi crown prince ones involved in ordering the killing as Jane arrive in Amman Jordan thanks Jane thank you for almost seventy years US troops have been barred from bringing medical malpractice claims against the government but now a soldier who has cancer is going to get his day in court that's because he and his lawyer took his case to Congress J. price of member station W.

enough support from local investors for what's likely to be a record share sale Bloomberg has learned the crown prince made the decision at a meeting he chaired yesterday and an official announcement is likely as soon as tomorrow global news twenty four hours a day on air and it took took on Twitter powered by more than twenty seven hundred journalists and analysts in more than one hundred twenty countries I'm Susanna Palmer this is Bloomberg this is Bloomberg businessweek I am chasing Kelly Carol Mathur welcome to the weekend edition of Bloomberg businessweek over the next couple of hours we're gonna you news of the week inside for the magazine and more and she said this is a very special issue it's the new economy issue and it's really looking at the drivers and the disruptors of the global economy is so it really just sets you into all of the trends and storage you need to know about it's a primer for a big event coming up later on this month if the second annual new economy form it's going to be held in Beijing a gathering of world leaders of business leaders really in the business of problem solving so we have all of that to cover this week also we have a couple of stories we've got to point out including one on Christine Lagarde she takes the reins this week at the European central bank will hear what that means for the central bank she is going to be a different type of head she brings different skills to that job exit druggy entered looking card it couldn't have two different people cast in this role in a lot of ways eager to see what you make this journey that address right very good point first up though we speak with the editor of the special issue Christina Lindblad she oversaw all of it really stitch together what's happening in this new economy and how she put it all together I think about this this issue all year long it's it's good and great repository of stories that we might not be able to do that the rest of the year because we have sex you know certain sections and they don't and some of these issues don't fit very well within those sections and speaking of repositories plastics we're not talking about credit cards or talk about actual plastic being used to pay for things wait what the plastic bank is a a project that started with this entrepreneur in Vancouver and the first one opened in Haiti and we visited one in Bali in Indonesia that opened recently and basically the idea is to make plastic worth something and spend give people an incentive to not throw it out so basically we talked to people there who you know supplement their income by collecting plastic and we deeming it the plastic bank the plastic bank had IBM built in the sort of like he wallet after that like people can use to track their income and their savings they can also use those those credits that they have and we deem them at certain stores so for example somebody can earn like seven dollars a month that does not seem to sound like a lot in the United States but in Indonesia is a country where GDP per capita is only three thousand something dollars a year how is it fascinates just kind of it sounds like such a simple solution to what's kind of a big problem giving people kind of financial identity as well as solving a pollution problem that's right because I mean the idea is also that they're almost like these these countries have a huge number of unbanked people and so this is basically training people the idea of suck water savings you know like this we could talk to one guy who say I used to go out and spend all the money like I got because he used to go to a recycling center and we deem that plastic and just get paid you know right there but now he's sort of has an incentive to save it up another big story that is in the magazine and looking at it from a global perspective is immigration and what I love about this story has been such a push back against immigration by so many different countries around the world and yet countries need it because they need workers well this is a project that I desperately wanted to do and this is an example of something that would have been sort of where to wear dresses yeah but I I thought we have one of the sections of the issues governance and I thought what is something that that means really good policy and it's sort of this movement of people which is become such a hot political issue but it really is it's it's imperative for certain economies to keep you know to keep immigration alive as a as a you know it is a necessity right so it's like how do you make it work for you so we looked at three different examples and I think Canada is one of the most interesting because it has this system that takes an economic migrants so not political asylum seekers or anything else but so if you're applying as an economic migrant Canada you're going to get scored on several criteria which one is your skills your education your past work perfect I'm not before as I'm sorry your your like your resume what kind of jobs you've had language so the national languages of Canada French and English and not score is going to determine basically whether you'll being you're going to be offered permanent residents and other any other countries are looking at this program right yes so New Zealand and Australia already adopted their programs are modeled on on Canada and the U. S. there's two legislator to Republican legislators who have proposed as part of a a big reform and immigration and what's cool about that story and people should definitely check it out is you said to give it some sweet but then you have some personal examples as well let's talk about climate because we talk about it here a lot right Bloomberg there's a whole effort in the newsroom you look at it through one river tell us about right so we went to a river that runs through several countries in southern Africa we chose southern Africa because it's one of the most vulnerable places acts in terms of basically people and governments do not have the money to spend and medication so we looked at in this river the Zambezi which starts in Zambia and lines all the way down to Mozambique the the interesting thing is in the north the problem has been drought and in the south there being two floods and cyclones so it's basically the story of wacky weather and how it plays out for these communities along the river these are important issues in these are global issues and you guys talk like so well in the magazine Christina thank you so much our economics editor a Christina Lindblad overseeing the economic Emily this issue and it's Christina Lindblad you know she's a frequent guest on ours frequent collaborator in many ways and this was a tough assignment I think because how do you really get your arms around this new economy right and you just get to that so many of the important issues that we face in the global economy in twenty twenty love checking your listing to Bloomberg businessweek coming up we speak with the man in charge of putting the the foreign it is with.
