Filipinos voting in midterm elections crucial to Duterte

"Let's begin in Philippines, midterm elections taking place. It's big vote. Eighteen thousand national and local seats seven thousand locations. So the logistics are pretty remarkable. But the votes being seen Roger as a referendum on president Rodrigo Duterte? Controversial president Rodrigo Duterte popular president Rodrigo Duterte in the Philippines. If the opinion polls are to be believed. Most is turned to the Senate race. There are twenty four seats in the Senate heart of which up for grabs. You'll hear now why they're so important that we've been speaking to other guy who lectures on politics at the university of the Philippines, demon well because the Senate among all the other ranches the government is the could say the last bastion of resistance for the opposition. It's the only chamber our political institution that the territory hasn't been able to fully influence if we refer to this as a super majority he's doing very well in the polls, everyone expects him to do. Well, in the Senate seats, what will he try to use the super majority to do just explain us. What would be on his agenda if he had more power more influence, right? I two things here. First you need the super majority in order to convert the Senate, including the house into a body that could recommend changes to the constitution. So you just don't need a simple majority for that in that is why it's critical that the detailed ministration controls the Senate. The other is that in any future impeachment against territory, you need a super majority of the Senate to convict the president. So I think on those two very powerful functions of the Senate. It is important that super majorities controlled by the executive in not only to pursue his agenda. But also to protect himself gives us an idea of what the latest indication from the polls was I mean, he he always does very well in his approval ratings. Just explain. Learn how that converts into the the local vote president the territory as I've already described hasn't stopped compaigning since twenty sixteen and that's what you get from populous leaders and therefore in a lot of these speeches during the campaign period. He's personality has a stake is been competing for his own candidates in fact, endorse fifteen senatorial candidates when only twelve slot. So he's really hedging also knew bets. But I think part of this is also that he wants to really crush the opposition to ensure that they don't only lose the election, but they really don't have any political leverage in the next three years meaning the remainder of the detailed ministration with no political leverage. What do they do you looking at a government with seriously entrenched power and a few pockets of civil society objections? Yeah, perhaps. But I think the Turkey is also thinking of what will happen after his term formally ends in. Hundred twenty two a viable position needs that it can field a challenger. That can totally outmaneuver anyone that picks as his replacement, but also make the charity accountable for things that he has done this president as well as make his allies accountable.

You're listening to all things considered from NPR news. This is rob long with MARTINI shot on KCRW. I had dinner at a very expensive restaurant last week in Manhattan, where if you wanna spend a lot of money on dinner, you really do have some great options. I prefer I've discovered that when it comes to fancy dinners like when it comes to financing movie or producing television pilot. That's always best to use someone else's money is just more delicious, somehow, which I was lucky enough to do because I was having dinner with a friend of mine who is an investment banker and times are pretty good for them. Apparently because I ordered a couple of things that had extra charge written next to them or MP for market price. And you really supposed to ask what the market price is or how extra the extra charges, but I didn't because well nine care. So how's business? I asked my friend while I was eating his food and drinking his wine, pretty good. He said what do you do? Again, I asked which is something a lot of us wonder sometimes about our friends. Well, we're mostly an advisory firm. He said we help companies decide about mergers or acquisitions and sometimes they're already clients. But sometimes we just figure out a good deal approach. The company's ourselves. It's a good time for this money is really available and in your business. He said they'll be a lot of combining emerging coming up. Really? I said interesting. So do you think we should switch to a red? But the next day I wondered about that visory business business would seem suspiciously like not doing much for a whole lot of money, and that's the business model that I'm most captivated by. So I did some research, and I learned that M work already hit with the lingo. It's really about putting pieces together that aren't together at the moment.

Global news twenty four hours a day on Aaron a tick tock on Twitter powered by more than twenty seven hundred journalists and analysts in more than one hundred twenty countries in San Francisco, I'm Ed Baxter. This is Bloomberg rich. Thanks. Let's get back to the half out. Timothy Horsburgh is investments outages Oppenheimer funds. Timothy, thanks for sticking around. With is are you concerned about the US economy having a bit of a hickup red cow boss on the program the other day, and he was saying the US get into a mild recession in the mid part of next year. What are your thoughts? Our thoughts are when I when I think about why the US economy went through really through the last part of of twenty eighteen the annoying fundamental still quite strong. So we don't see recession even in twenty twenty on the horizon giving breakdown in market as a result of too tight a fed policy impacting financial markets, but the economy, even though it slowing a little bit still looks quite good. And much has been made about the flattening out of earnings. We've perhaps we'll see zero percent growth. But if you take out the the high flying tech stocks, I it actually looks a lot better. So in one sense, you could say that the earnings are reasonably solid here. And that they've broadened throughout the S and P five hundred. I would agree with that. I think when I look at earnings in our outlook, that's actually one of the encouraging things the broad based nature of of earnings reports this quarter being good. So what about like if we look at the performance today was nice because it was spread across a lot of different areas. Even financials did well and energy and. And biotech. So do you have do you favor one particular area or a couple of sectors that you would would direct money to? I think given our outlook from from the prior question really thinking about the US cycle continuing for the near term in longer. We're more favoring the cyclical sectors over the defensive ones. So we're more excited about industrial tax, discretionary, then we are about some of the more defensive sectors like utilities or or any of those that that typically outperforming in those weaker environment. So I I think that we're all biased towards thinking about the rest of the year. So the long old arguments being growth in value. Yeah. Exactly. Yes. And I think in the growth value side. We're also favoring more those growthy names, I think just in general in the subdued GDP growth environment. If we see let's say more like a two two and a half percent GDP growth year in the United States as opposed to last year, which was a little faster that's the type of environment where growth, especially those companies that can grow their earnings faster than the headline rate of GDP growth tend to do. Well, so in this conversation, we've talked a lot about tailwinds and the reasonably constructive outlook. But what is a major headwind for what he worried about. I think my biggest worry still despite communication would be stay from the bed. I think that when you look at the real breakdown in market from from October through December of eighteen really in earnest, I the thing that concerns me most wise, the idea to depend was going to be too hawkish raise rates too many times. So I think long as we see this more accommodating daughter stance from the bed. I'm less worried about that. But that certainly if if you do see a pickup in inflation or anything else that I think is probably my number. One concern headwind. Typically have a look at that fiscal stimulus last year as the effect of that fades away where does it lead the fed? Ultimately there. Well, I think the fiscal stimulus last year was the green light for the fed to get more aggressive with raising rates. I think when you look at a chairman Powell's objectives one of them is to get raped high enough. So that they have some ammo for the next recession when whenever that may be and and so I think that that stimulus allowed them a little breathing room. Now, of course, this year, you're going to see the fading effects of fiscal team is still positive net effect on the US economy, but less than than what you got after that initial boost especially to corporate earnings in in twenty eighteen and so I think that that's maybe the modulation where fiscal policy become less, cumulative and monetary policy becomes.

But since he's been off been in office. He's gone back to saying that he wants more private money because that's what Republicans support.

Now, we have an update of the campaign against crime in the Philippines, president Rodrigo Duterte has gone outside the law in that campaign welcoming thousands of extrajudicial killings, Philippine lawmakers are also debating a change in the law itself.

He's told Barack Obama and you NFL's to go to hell, the dubious achievements. Go on. But these days do is stepping up attacks on a group that was long considered untouchable in the Philippines. The Catholic church. Here's the world's Patrick win. If you want to commit political suicide in the Philippines, you might say something like this that any Bishop. To get your. Tell you the most hypocritical institution in the Philippines. That is president duty talking about beating up bishops and priests in one of the most devoutly Catholic nations on earth, and this is not even the most provocative thing. He's been saying about priests most priest. Homosexuals almost landed percents few this most priests are gay line. He always says this during his rants about sexual predators. Conflicting being gay with preying on kids. It's one of to lines in the Philippines. The people the government the culture, they're all intertwined with Catholicism. Eighty percent of the population is Catholic. So how does do tape get away with this is just a completely unprecedented species, Richard? Hey, Darian is an academic who wrote a book called the rise of duty, you know, people like detector disrupters, so the same kind of rules of the game that we're applied his predecessor Stalingrad lightning because he changed the game itself. There are several forces at play here. One is that do taste war on drugs has killed by some estimates twenty thousand people and influential priests keep telling him this is immoral and corrupt. You hate. This. He recently told one Bishop that he's had his head cut off details. Take is you Catholic priest lecturing me about morality and corruption. What w done except the money from the people and that corruption bitch, but many many many many many years ago here he's playing on the church's legacy of tyranny. You know, all that brutality inflicted by Christopher Columbus on behalf of the Spanish empire, slavery indoctrination mass killing will Spain and the Vatican later brought all of that to the Philippines a series of islands named after a Spanish king. Philip who thought European Catholics were just superior to so-called natives live up onto the victims. Sometimes pictured as apes that was a very long time ago. But today the church keeps up its crusades like fighting to keep divorce illegal or saying that women on birth control pills are like murderers, pushing this agenda that just isn't that popular with most Filipinos, including Detaille, also dairy and says everyone in the Philippines knows this is personal for details. He has said that he was molested as a boy by an American priest people also know that this is coming from an experience of anger and trauma. So I think that is also were he gets actually sympathy. And hey, Darian says a lot of Filipinos realized that deteriora- exaggerates things that he throws wild bombshells in the middle of his long rambling speeches just to give the crowd fired up. I notice he also does that sometimes because he feels that the audience is board, and this is where he's kind of Trump ish. He knows the audience is looking also for bombshell. And he gives it to them. This is classic like with Trump or gyro ball scenario in Brazil, their fans love watching them freak out the established order some people also feel his gutsy right? He's got see saying things that even devout Catholics would have loved to say. And they just couldn't say because there are some people who feel that the thirties unnecessary grew Chuck to push the Catholic church to get their own house in order. Now, there is one red line that duty does not want to cross he would like you to know that despite his hatred for priests. He is not an atheist. I never said I do not believe in kindlier.
