"Spanish economy growing by 0.3% in the first quarter the estimate was 0.6% This is really interesting because there's a lot of focus on inflation there has been for many months and a lot of people talking about whether central banks are behind the curve when it comes to fighting inflation Are we starting to see economies roll over is a key question and do we see economic headwinds ahead I say this in the context of Spain because we got some inflation data that missed estimates yesterday and now we have this growth number that is missing estimates The Spanish government trying to bring down energy costs in that economy of course And we have seen European highs for inflation coming out of Spain so that is a very interesting theme to explore But that's the Spanish growth story linking it in with the global themes Let's get to the data and where we are right now stocks in Europe then up by 7 tenths of 1% the FTSE 100 up by half a percent The cacao on top by three quarters of 1% the ibex and the FTSE may both making decent gains So we are much stronger We're stronger across the European equity space but not quite as strong as the futures had led us to believe Dax features were certainly up by more than 1% We'll see whether the Dax opens that strongly when it does open it still remains closed right now So we're focused on the earnings stories we seem to have been managing to put aside The tech difficulties that we've seen overnight from Apple and Amazon in the U.S. big tech space and focus instead on the better sentiment that's been coming through from Asia We heard comments from the Chinese Politburo the timing of which seemed to be designed to support market sentiment ahead of a long break over in China So that's certainly something that lifted Asian equities MSCI Asia Pacific up by 1.7% and hang saying tech stocks up by more than 8% as we get towards the end of the trading day over in Hong Kong That's the story around equities then we have the Brent price at one O 8 30 so we're edging higher still on oil prices back up to some of those recent high levels up by 7 tenths of 1% there We've seen a lot of volatility of course of late in FX markets and a lot of dollar strength today we take a break from that theme the dollar is a little weaker down by four tenths of 1% The yen also getting a bit of a boost after all of those losses of yesterday but still around the one 30 mark one 30 30 is where we trade the Euro at one O 5 the handle up by four tenths of 1% and the pound is up by 6 tenths of 1% one 25 35 both of those bouncing back from what was dollar strength and elsewhere weakness in yesterday's session So that's a quick look at where we are on the markets Let us get into some of the stocks that we're watching this morning and for that let's bring into the conversation Bloomberg's kit Reese who joins me here in the London studio Good morning Two U kids Let's start with Ben Giza and what they had to say we'd heard of course Unilever and P and G already Yeah so there's big story with these kind of stocks is whether they'll be able to pass on price increases given the inflationary backdrop So actually with record it had a pretty strong report This is another company which was in focus during the pandemic given it sold disinfectant and all those kind of things we use day to day And so it looks like it has been able to pass on the price increases and this has boosted sales But if we look at the shares it's not a huge reaction this morning just down .3% and kind of keeps its shares roughly flat on the year But again the inflation story is definitely something to watch with those stocks going forward Yeah they've been talking about asset sales as well haven't they And we'll look for further details on whether that develops Let's get to AstraZeneca then we got numbers through and there's always a focus on COVID of course COVID-19 but also a focus on the way that COVID-19 distracted us so much from other illnesses and suspicions of other illnesses And that has been sad for those involved really sad for those involved and has had an impact on anybody making cancer drugs Yes definitely And I guess the story here is kind of what's next for Astra after pose in a post COVID world And I thought this was interesting given that the company sees revenue from its COVID medicines business declining by a low to mid 20s percentage point But it was actually the demand for cancer drugs that boosted its profit which beats estimates But again the shares aren't reacting particularly strongly this morning down .4% but maybe that's because they're up 20% this year So maybe nothing too much to get excited about in the report there Let's focus on BASF then This German business and there's a Russia link here What's the story Yes so this is a real macro story So amid this sort of uncertain backdrop of the war in Ukraine and the zero COVID policies in China People are wondering whether this is going to impact the company which makes chemicals The shares are .2% It kept its outlook and I guess investors will be looking forward to see whether rising input costs those rising energy prices will affect it given that it uses a lot to make these chemicals Okay thanks very much kit Thanks for bringing us the latest on some of these stocks that are on the move this morning So we've had a host of earnings but also the bigger picture theme a lot of positive sentiment coming through from Asia and that is lifting sentiment here in Europe as well It would appear Thanks to kit Reese for an update there on our stocks on the move Let's get an update on our top stories and.

"And in a handful of those countries the answer to that is yes And I think those make some of the most interesting opportunities You want to name names What countries present those sort of opportunities I would say Ivory Coast is one Ghana is one El Salvador is one So there's some interesting ones Really interesting You mentioned the response to the pandemic How did various emerging market countries and their governments respond to COVID and the financial crisis were in O 8 O 9 was this really developed world issue in terms of the great financial crisis Or did it impact EM significantly also Well both crises really are exogenous shocks from the perspective of the emerging markets Unlike 1998 where we were the epicenter let's say in 2008 emerging markets were run over as bystanders And I would say the whole world was run over as part of COVID So whenever you have these external crises that impinge upon the markets there are some very well established programs out there for the sovereigns in our markets to make sure it doesn't become a systemic crisis So if you think about 2008 there was a very standard playbook already in place to help some of the weaker credit whose debt was sustainable in the medium term they just had a rollover problem and the IMF was there to help them roll over their deaths until market access was regained Some of them of course their debt was not sustainable in the medium term And so they elected to default to an Ecuador default in 2008 for example What about the early 2010s when we saw a lot of southern Europe running into problems Do we really think about Greece as a emerging market Or is that more of a developed nation with a long history of credit problems It's a great question So earlier when I was trying to lay out the taxonomy of what's considered an emerging country from an investment perspective I said it's usually lower middle income countries or countries that have defaulted even if they're high income And I would put Greece in that louder category How did that southern European crisis And I remember 2011 2012 2013 it seemed like it was never going to end How did that affect the rest of the universe I don't want to use a dirty word like contains but was that primarily focused in Europe or did the tremors from that radiate outwards to all various emerging market debt Well as a relative value construct of course it would have radiate out I mean if you're going to get paid 500 over bonds for BTPs or Spanish government bonds why on earth would you buy emerging markets debt So of course our spreads widened in sympathy and I used to say that it's Spain to fall If a major developed markets government elect to default the signaling for our markets will be very very bad Just think about how terrible that would be Argentina would just default because they would say well if the Spanish aren't going to pay we're not going to pay even if they could pay That's really kind of intriguing We've been speaking a Tina Vander steel She is the head of emerging country debt at GMO where she is also a partner If you enjoy this conversation check out any of our previous 377 discussions we've had You can find those at iTunes Spotify wherever you buy your favorite podcasts We love you comments feedback in suggestions right to us at MIB podcast at Bloomberg dot net Sign up for my daily reads at riddles dot com Follow me on Twitter.

"The author of anti fascism. The course of a crusade. For whom did you write this book, doctor gottfried? I see on the cover, it looks like a Marxist activist planning his flag. Antifa, anti fascist style themselves as somehow, on the left, the good guys, they're against nazism, but they're more horrible or as horrible as the Nazis ever were, or were they aspired to be as horrible. Yeah, one of the arguments I make in the book is that they always see themselves as being in the interwar European struggle between fascism and communism. You know, the Popular Front on one side and then the reactionary Spanish government and the Nazis and the coming in the Italian fascists and so forth. They see themselves as still involved in a struggle that took place a long time ago. And they they typically shied with the communists, which is interesting, although the communists their homophobic sexist to all the things that were not supposed to do here. Anti semitic around defending a cake of ara, who was a racist, a real racist. They'll defend Castro. They want to identify themselves with what in their mind is an eternal left. So they always see themselves involved in the inter war struggle against fascism, which goes on and on, you know it never ends. But what they have in common, of course, and I mean, I always want to try to make this point is that antifa, which says we're anti fascist. And so called fascists and cultural marxists and actual marxists and on and on and on. What they all have in common is they reject the God of the Bible and the values of the God of the Bible, which values have led to self government on the American model, have led to the dignity of everyone, have led us away from slavery. In other words, they reject that that God, and they reject that kind of freedom and government and attempt to replace it with something which they themselves don't really seem to know what it is. It seems to be this chimera, they're never going to get there, but they keep talking about it. And I think if we finally kill enough people, we'll finally achieve what we want. No, I think you're right. It's very clear what they reject. It's less clear what they want. And particularly when you get to the woke left, I mean, all they do is cancel and riot and do things like that. The communists the old fashioned communists had some vestigial Marxist view that at the end of this process, we're going to have a socialist society and the state will wither away. Of course, it never happened. You know? And in practice, they behave, like Nazis, but at least in theory, this was going to happen. The president woke left, I'm not sure the event of a vision beyond being destructive. Nihilistic. I think there were nihilism does apply to them. And the hypocrisy to me is absolutely glaring. They don't seem to care if Muslims are sexist. They abuse women. It's only if white Christians do this, you know. And now what's the reason for that? What is it? I mean, I have a theory. Why do you say that they could be that? Just almost unbelievably hypocritical and self contradictory. I mean, you're quite right. They will ally themselves with Muslim radicals who ostensibly stand for everything against what they stand for. Why? Because they hate their own society, and they hate the society of their ancestors. You see this particularly among Germans. And I was a German historian that, you know, present big and present day Germany, you know, Muslims are glorified, even if they're sexy, whatever, even if they can the crimes against women will cover the political left will cover up for them all the time is happening here on the United States. Because they're driven by what they hate and take their own civilization and the heat of ancestral civilization. And that I think is maybe even more important than their loss for power in the end. Is this hatred? Yeah, a hatred. It's interesting to me because what we're talking about really is post logical. In other words, they would say that logic is a patriarchal construct. You're not going to fool me with your brilliant arguments, my rage will kill you and your stupid arguments, and I will have my way. So it's a nietzschean nihilistic will to power masquerading as something more complicated. Yeah, I think there is a will to power, but I think there's also this blind hatred and just bull and they like to bully. That may be the more powerful the world will to power, which is they're going to push other people around people who may have content. And unfortunately, the people for whom they have contemptuous give in all the time. You know, they are absolutely no backbone. That's why that's why this process of hectoring and bullying goes on. Well, I mean, you could take this, but I always think of, you know, the Columbia University president's office being taken over by teenage thugs because already in 1968, this spirit was roaming abroad in the land. The adults figured we've got nothing to say, the young people, it's like this Russo in idea of the innocent young people are gonna teach us the way of the future, which is just it's utterly preposterous, but it's been going on now for over 50 years. I agree. I'm old enough to remember that. And I said, it's just the professor at K western reserve when this was going on. We were also taken over by these leftist thugs. And the reaction of the older faculty is, you know, their young people, and we really haven't justice in our society and so forth. It was very little attempt to resist this. Okay, we're going to go to another, yet another break, very happy to be talking to doctor pol.

Well, yeah, felt on doll so the nearby Milica, which is also Spanish territory have always bean flash point for migrants trying to enter European soil. There seems to stepping stepping point to the European mainland. But what has happened has been extremely unusual.

"My friends and relatives visit here to not do that. Space on an economic decision which is to make any difference to them because they were never going to property. Anyway if you find exact right property and this is exactly what you need. Don't miss out on ended up. Buying something isn't right and this isn't exactly what you wanted. You know just because you're waiting for the process to go down. That's to me the wrong decision hank about whether you're in it for short medium term or the long term really important think about in terms of value of property. And wha what is going to do. Let's talk about another. How can i put nightmare situation. Possibly brexit for the listeners from the u. k. is brexit something to be worried about for buying in spain. He said the be would people didn't want say i. We've we've done the c word so we might be what news me thinking. I was going to be the not one on this podcast again. It's such an interesting scenario. What i have seen spoken. Nationally and locally are for example by on the head of and lucia and also my own local men is that you know this very simple view that spain didn't offer brexit didn't initiate exit. And they don't once oh hold any animosity was brits. They have a long long relationship with the uk with uk. Taurus and uk investors and. They don't want anything to change as much as possible. Obviously they're still within the eu but the actual the outlook and dave approach that feed into was brits down essentially the same effectively. They are going to help to keep things as normal as possible. And i think they're going to try to estimate. Sure that as little as possible changes you can see. The spanish government is doing as much as they can to minimize the impact or any negative impacts. Brexit has on their relationship with the brits who will come out here as always so comp to spain is as investors other talking about breakdown of the costs of buying a property in spain hidden cost when we watched that tv program. A place in the sun and the like. Oh you can get this lovely little villa for two hundred and fifty thousand euros but you know. They didn't talk about all of the other little hidden costs and taxes and legal fees thing. Could you just break it down for us. In layman's terms. You see the ticket price of our house. What else are you going to have to pay more or less. How much would it be crazy documentary. A few years ago and the document entitled why. It's impossible for you to pay ten percent closing costs when you buy property in spain. Start off by saying the closing costs you. The taxes in additional arm cost that you pay over in about the actual purchase. Price of a property are -standingly high When i arrived here in spain the two thousand six it was fifteen percent. Which is what you would budget. So i always use the simplest of numbers so if you're buying the property for one hundred thousand euros and that was the price of the property.
