Asian media and tea leaves review. There's another story in the Global times. It's actually an editorial that says China should teach the United States and the island of Taiwan a real lesson if they call for it, And this is responding to a separate story in the FT. That the US is seriously considering a request from the island of Taiwan again. This is the way that the editorials written to change the name of its mission in Washington from the Taipei Economic Cultural Representative office to the Taiwan representative office, and this has angered Beijing and this editorial goes on to say in the final line, or one of the final lines of peace.

Who is Kelly would fund manager of fixed income at Schroders on the line from Sydney. Kelly. Thanks for being with us, obviously, for bond markets globally right now, I think the The central question is on fed tapering. I'm wondering in your work as you look at the virus and the way in which it's proliferating and driving sentiment. The pall of its cast over the growth outlook. Does it necessarily lead you to think that the Fed is perhaps not in any hurry to taper? Or will it as many officials are calling for stick to its guns and move forward with that plan? Hey, guys. And thanks for having me this morning in terms of the growth outlook for the U. S. Obviously, it's been exceptionally strong this year, And although activity remains pretty robust level, you know the growth pulse has paid. And markets really have started to enjoy this sort of softer data as good news as it pushes policy tightening into the future, But you know for us the biggest concern here is the environment of stagflation. You know where we see a further moderation of growth. Alongside some of these upward pressure on prices and you know, in terms of the Fed, you know, that means that they're going to lean against moderation in growth, they still believe inflation transitory. And you know, we're likely to see a delay to tapering certainly a delay to tightening and this is an environment that especially risky markets really enjoyed. Okay with it show, But you look at all that and you go. OK, but ultimately where's the juice is a value here, anywhere. Yeah, And I think this is the biggest challenge drive is where you know, in terms of credit markets. You know where cycle fundamentals that we're at late cycle valuations and It was very difficult to find any valuing in bond markets here today. Um, you know, the recovery we saw last year meant that you know, when now operating in An opportunity set that's very expensive. And you know, in terms of credit, you know, we have been managing l position quite constructively. You know, we are positions of high quality carry. Um we are seeing value in asset costs is like Asian credit. Um us securitized it emerging markets. But we have been tactically defensive since June. Um, you know, and there's any small pockets of value in terms of the credit opportunity said that we have been accessing of the last few months, but the unevenness of the global recovery you look at the situation like Museum Island as small as it is, I mean, they've already the Central bank. They're already moving, writes up. Probably poised to do the same. We are talking about bias now to tightening not only in the US, Australia as well. So talk to me about the markets that you need to focus on. Given the relative nous of this that it's certainly uneven across the globe. Yeah. And I think this is where you know you can really play into sort of relative value opportunities. You know us all the Canada, New Zealand. And you know, this strain economy has been, you know, an interesting one where you know we've always been of the view that the Australian market could outperform the US this year. And that's certainly played out. I think you know the Australian economy, certainly through the worst, um, at least relative to other countries as vaccination rates sort of pick out and we can look forward to Getting out of these lockdown that we're stealing today. Um, but the deltas Chinese is clearly a game changer. And I think this is where we need to be looking at markets that, you know, um, moving faster towards sort of reopening. And we are getting to a point where those central banks um you know, I'm starting to withdraw policy accommodation and whether that be in in markets like New Zealand and Canada. Um and the U S. You know, they're the markets that we've been playing short duration. Where you know, we continue to remain long, long duration in those markets where, um, there's been some disappointment. In terms of Australia and Europe. Okay. Okay. You're also looking at other assets around Asia Credit. Do you worry about the likes of Evergrande, for instance, and all the news flow from that, and indeed, the fallout from that could present something which could be systemic. And hurt. A lot of the credit markets, which doesn't need to be or hurt deserve to be heard. Yeah, I think I should. I just credits an interesting one. Um, you know, we have had exposure to Asian credit. Um, you know, late last year, but we have started to add to that position because You know, it offers stand out value in the global fixed income universe. You know, there's there's no other markets that displaying those type of valuation. So you know, we do like Asian credit, predominantly from evaluation perspective. We do acknowledge that the cycle is is quite weak. You know, we've seen Chinese authorities continue down the path that sort of regulatory crackdown. Um, and that's obviously putting a lot more pressure on On the broader credit markets. But in terms of valuations, we do believe we're getting compensated for that. Um so we continue to hold those positions. I guess we're, um We are a little more cautious in markets like us high yield. Um, very stretched valuations. Um, so we are running short vision in U. S high yield U S investment grade. I think they're the markets that really Quite a symmetric in terms of credit, underperforming in sort of a risk off environment. Kelly will leave it there. Thank you for being with us. Kelly would of Schroeder's here on daybreak Asia. Thanks to Rashad Salam it being with us, this is Bloomberg. This is a Bloomberg money.

"Good morning Handle morning crew on a Thursday morning, December 24 we finish the are Thursday segment with Brian suits. Tactical Thursday. All right, Brian, we were talking about the bad news and militarily speaking before we jump into that you have been talking about the possibility of a conflict in the Middle East. Between the Arab countries who have been frightened of Iran is all of us have because they're just crazy. People over there in the mule is, you know the theocracy in Israel, who has said over and over again, not, Netanyahu said. We will not let them have nuclear weapons. They have until January, 20th. With the Trump administration that would back up Israel under virtually every circumstance. What's going to happen between now and then? Well, the next new moon period. The period of lowest visibility at night is between January 11th. And the 15th and also that's also a period traditionally bad weather in the Tehran area, But but not the target. Their target areas of Natanz and photo though there is going to be bad, bad weather in general, so if it were me, I'm just saying, And if If a necklace with the Israeli and Arab cooperates, I would point to that for maximum success, and so in the open source for you. Oh, sent fans open Source. Intelligence watch Major airlines divert around Iran Starting what? Having good reason. Maybe on January, 3rd. If the Iranians do something amazingly provocative and stupid. On. And so when you stop thinking commercial air flying over Iran, you know something's up there. We have a really good reason because you remember two years ago, Iran did the my bed on that Ukrainian airline. Airliner. And and so those are the hell's those of the indicators. If if January 3rd comes and goes, and the Iranians you know they rocket it the hell out of the U. S embassy last week, But that was their local militias. And I was wondering why weren't they waiting till January? 3rd? So it looks like something is in the works. Um, And if they do it, they are poking the tiger because the guy in the White House has He's fresh out of deaths. He has nothing to lose. And this is unfinished business for him. He promised Netanyahu hey, promise to Gulf Arab states. I'm not Obama, and they're saying he did. You had three weeks You got four with its to not be Obama. Bond. You know, he has his speech two days ago. That was 2024 presidential campaign speech. And so he has this unfinished business. And he wants to leave the White House and say There you go. I didn't for your what Obama couldn't do in eight. All right, well, talking about Biden administration, It could be argued that it is that Obama administration coming in How do you foresee the changes of the U. S and Israel and dealing with the Arab country? Because obviously that is the hot spot around the world. If anything's going to happen is gonna happen there. So tell me about a prophecy of the Biden administration and those in that regard. When he visits Israel of Saudi Arabia. It will be after he visits the UK or Canada or whatever, but he better do it soon because as hey starts in the negative with them, he was part of the most hostile. Uh, U. S administration towards Israel and the Arab states in since Lyndon Johnson on guess so he starts in the negative. He has to convince them that he was playing a character. Well, I was Was his wing man. I was his sidekick. I was I was I was Major Healey. And he was major. Not Elson with Jeannie. No, no, no. Good luck. Good. Good luck. He needs to. Probably if this happens if Biden wants to get back in the good graces of the Gulf, Arab states and Israel he should. If the thing I'm talking about happens between January 3rd and the 15th Biden should probably say boys will be boys like Reagan did and say, Oh, well, clean Slate. Let's start all over. Thanks for getting rid of Iranian nuclear program. All right, Let's talk about a Biden administration and the military because whatever happens, we're going from probably the most pro military presidency We have seen in a very long time to a Biden administration. And what is that gonna look like? Um, you know, obviously with with a one party state after the two Republicans lose their seats and Georgia there's there's gonna be catching the military budget. Um, and you know, they've been awash with money the last three years. But they're used to contracting and expanding and contracting. But he will make a big deal to his base because it's a big deal with his base that you know a B two or a B 21 could build 100 elementary schools or more like 100 million. Um, s o the hill. He'll do that It will play politics with the budget, just like Trump is playing politics with the military budget. Okay, So what do we look at? What happened this year? And the reason I'm bringing up this year is because this is my last broadcast of the year. What were the most important aspects of this year outside of Israel, the Gulf states and the sea change that happened you? I think you described it correctly as Teutonic changes or tectonic changes. No time exchanging with Germany involved in that one. And, yes, tectonic changes. Uh yeah. What would you put down is another one or two major incidents that happened. The Taiwan Strait. The build up of Chinese forces on their East coast as close as possible for a short transit to Taiwan are very, very, very concerning and and this is where the overlap of Mark Milley chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff, he'll remain Biden's chairman for a couple months, at least.

Things changed in 2016 when Mitch McConnell held up and ultimately killed the nomination of Merrick Garland at that time, Lindsey Graham was very concerned. I want you to use my words against me. If there's a Republican president in 2016, and a vacancy occurs in the last year of the first term, you can say, Lindsey Graham said. Let's let the next president who whoever it might be. Make that nomination and you could use my words against me and you'd be absolutely right. That was 2016. What a difference. Four years makes now, Mr Graham says, or Senator Graham says he wants to move ahead. And Senator Ted Cruz, Republican on ABC, says the Constitution demands it because the election at very well could be disputed. That could make this presidential election drag on weeks and months and well into next year. That is an intolerable situation for the country. We need a full court.

We've seen really since June kind of escalating provocation from China, in sort of entering various kind of buffer zones which are pretty much being respected for decades you know around Taiwan that you can you can threatened and rattler cage but on the whole, it's been recognized that if you if you cross certain. Lines then you are risking at least an accident so. I mean the the the problem was that you know. In. The last well, just today actually eighteen Chinese bomas an and find the jets and Taiwan's advance buffer zone and that caused the cost Taiwan to scramble its jet. You had a lot of very you know serious. Flying around and I think that. Is and that along with the naval exercises and and a great deal of rhetoric is probably as far as it will go. But you know we have seen a prolonged campaign for the last three or four years of diplomatic isolation of kind of steady pressure on Taiwan from China, and certainly this doesn't help. You correctly observed that the US envoy is there to attend the memorial service for a former Taiwanese president. He will also be meeting with the current Taiwanese president is likely that anything of actual substance is being discussed between the president of one country and the Under Secretary of state for you know whatever from the other one or is this again? Largely. Theatrical. I wouldn't count on it being largely theatrical If you know we, we've wh as you know, we have a kind of dealing confrontation between the US and China and some alarming voices in Washington. Are, advocating, for example, the United States should supply nuclear weapons to Taiwan, which would be pretty crazy move in my view. But. There is a commitment from the United States to supply to Taiwan such a defensive Capability as is required now, it would be quite easy to argue that in a situation of enhanced tension greater a military supplies, more more military supplies. Packs more advanced military supplies were required and I would expect that to be part of the conversation I would also expect at least saying went to be exploring the idea of more formal cooperation between Taiwan and the United States last US official. To visit, which was relatively recently that produced an agreement on of collaboration on health I think timing when would very much like to see a free trade agreement with the United States. So again, I think this quite a lot to discuss an I would be surprised if this visit took place without some of them being on the table is anything really likely to shift in the near future though in any direction where this is concerned is everybody involved not basically biting their tongues and one hopes. Metaphorically as well as literally holding their fire until election day in the United States and certainly hope so you know the the US position on Taiwan, which is a it's a treaty obligation to to make sure that Taiwan can defend itself. This doesn't actually commit the United States to coming to the defense of Taiwan, but there is a kind of strategic ambiguity in in this treaty, which is designed to stop Taiwan declaring independence and therefore provoking China to stop China assuming that were it to. Stage a military salt. The. United. States would stand by and and not come to the defense of Taiwan. So the ambiguity in the US position is designed to keep both sides. Calm. Under a trump administration of calm is not a highly valued factor in Washington's calculations but I think. That the hope would be in Washington that enough kind of chest bearing and beating. We'll just keep everybody from doing anything too rash said, he don't think that China would relish an armed conflict, but on the other hand if the United States and Taiwan scenes to provocative in Beijing, in order to satisfy, it's increasingly nationalist domestic opinion and a PLA that seems fairly rested at the moment they might feel obliged to do something and as soon as you do something in a situation like this, then your provoking something very, very dangerous indeed

Has China lost Taiwan?
"Taiwan's president secured secured a second term over the weekend started scenes of the woman who stood up to China because China always believe China. Taiwan's recent election is widely seen as a watershed moment a referendum between Wayne. Two very different choices saw in win. She's the president since two thousand sixteen. She promised to protect Taiwan's freedoms from an increasingly assertive. He said he's an autocratic Beijing or the nationalist combing Tung came to the opposition which stressed causes ties with Beijing. The result a landslide two cy and her ruling independence leading Democratic Progressive Party. It was her warnings about China that hit home. We've voters this threat Israel with these respect from China situation has changed you. You cannot exclude the possibility of a war. And it's high invading. Taiwan is something that is going to be very costly fled China Taiwan's president saw in win on the basis now. She scored move odds than any other presidential candidate since Taiwan hi one began holding democratic elections in Nineteen ninety-six. So why has Beijing's efforts to control. Taiwan was it backfired and we'll China Now back off from what it sees as a renegade province remember most nations including the United States and Australia. We adhere to the one China policy which means we formally acknowledge Beijing's claims over Taiwan but what can Washington and camera do to help this vibrant democracy of twenty ninety four million in the face of arising China. Natasha Qassam is research fellow at the Lowy Institute for International Policy where she directs the annual Lowy Institute suit poll. She's a former Australian diplomat. And he wants is emeritus professor of Strategic Studies at the Australian National University and author of how to defend Australia. He's a former deputy defense secretary. Natasha Hugh Welcome to Iran. To be with you thanks for having is time now Natasha. Why has China lost the battle for public opinion in Taiwan? Look I do think there's a real question as to whether China ever had a chance in this respect. You've got a longstanding up position in Taiwan to unification with China. You've got a long standing position to one country. Two Systems the model that China developed in the eighties Fulbari Taiwan and Hong Kong. And of course we see the problematic way that's playing out in Hong Kong today but the most important issue here I think has been the emergence of a unique Taiwanese identity entity. This is what has really changed over the last decade the majority of Taiwanese people they see themselves as Taiwanese and in part this is in opposition to a growing authoritarian -tarian reach from China but in pilots a product of Taiwan's transition to democracy. It's unique history in terms of its different periods of colonization and indigenous peoples. I think today we can say that. This far more that divides Taiwan and China then unites them. Is that growing sense of independence in Taiwan. And Natasha you mentioned Hong Kong and how that was supposed to be the roadmap for China's One Country Two Systems policy the clearly rebuked in these elections hugh. How does Beijing you all these? Well I think they must be very gloomy very concerned and I think getting pretty angry because I completely agree with Tushar I think the elections very significant because it confirms assumes absolutely that the prospect of an eventual consensual reunification of Taiwan agreeing to be absorbed or reabsorbed helped by the mainland looks more and more remark and the problem for everyone including for Taiwan is that Beijing is very unlikely to accept except that Beijing for Beijing reunification as I sit bringing Taiwan back into China is an essential part of their agenda of Xi. Jinping's agenda to for the rejuvenation as he calls it off of China overcoming of that century of humiliation which which began with the opium wars lower back in the forties and which she has set himself to overcome overturn. I think for him getting Taiwan back as he I would say it is. There is nothing more important to him. Nothing more important to the Communist Party and so we have The seats of a real tragedy because as Natasha says it's clear and clear that the Taiwanese don't want to be part of China and it says clearest safe obtain the Chinese determined to make it part of I hear you say Washington Santon. Sorry Beijing won't accept Taiwan's growing assertiveness but hasn't by aging conduct here been counterproductive. I think of John is if it's to intensify military not exercises around the Taiwan Strait. If it's to US light diplomatically. A Taiwan a hasn't that just stiffened the resolve of the tonys. ESO expected. Has I think I think that's been effector I think is Natasha. Says I think what's happened in. Hong Kong has has disabused anyone in Taiwan of any illusions about what one-country-two-systems three two systems would really mean. If it was applied to talk to Taiwan I think the growing authoritarian nature of the Chinese Communist Party ruled in China itself under under Shuzhen Ping Has Added to that. Boils I think as Natasha says again. That that the the the long term development of Taiwan itself Tallinn's entity that the the evolution of a very vibrant democracy there Meant that perhaps. Whatever Beijing done even if Beijing it'd be much less frightening that it has been it still would have been unlikely that Taiwan would move voluntarily to do what Beijing once and it's actually is hugh why wrought out here and he's not alone? We've had on this program over the last few years Professor Jon Meacham from the University of Chicago. The argument here is that not only will China be much more powerful awful than it is today but it will also remain deeply committed to making Taiwan part of China. I think she's deadline. Is this attender of the Communist revolution. Which would be a twenty four nine in other words? Tom Is on China. Saad your response. I disagree that Taiwan is really significant priority for Xi Jinping's China. But I think it's important when we think about what their highest priority is and for me that is always the domestic legitimacy of the potty state and and so by Beijing's policies primarily directed at that domestic audience. They might be failing in Taiwan but suddenly what they ought designed to do is to demonstrate two people in China that Beijing holds all the cards that they have a able to exit military pressure on Taiwan that they can exclude Taiwan from international organizations and that is the highest priority and under Xi Jinping's China. I think the hotline inflexible policies will just continue for godless. The effect that they have in Taiwan. But at the same time I do think it's a self fulfilling prophecy to argue that China will become so powerful so we should roll over and do nothing and therefore it will allow be allowed to become even more all powerful in military and economic times. I think this is almost a given Alpha China. But it's not a given in terms of China's power. China's power has been restricted in the region winslow in many ways many countries including Australia do not recognize the ages over the as traders say. China hasn't succeeded in achieving. Its goals in the South China Sea. It hasn't succeeded in closing bases in Japan. There's that in South Korea in numerous ways. I wouldn't say that time is on China side if anything I I think. China as a rational actor recognizes the cost of a protracted war a much higher than the cost of their patients on that knowledge has as Shea Jingping pink overreach. The embroiled other countries led by the US but including Australia to a newly skeptical view of Chana. I look clearly Thomas. China's Powell grows as system becomes more authoritarian as the way it seeks to exhibit influence throughout the region becomes to put it politely a more assertive a lot of countries. You Niger and beyond becoming more and more worried about what. China's power and hatch on is going to use its power mains over the next few decades but that I think we'd be too optimistic to imagine that China is somehow becoming a self limiting problem. I do think Jonah's power has grown. I think it's influences growing there. It's I still true. Of course. There's Natasha is that there are lots of things at China would like it. It hasn't yet got but I'm more pessimistic than she is that about China's capacity not to get its way increasingly as time goes on and it's worth bearing in mind all the things that China does get that yes Not everyone accepts what China wants to do in the just south China Sea but Australia. Itself hasn't undertaken serious remove navigation operations Australia and self does not acknowledge China as a strategic rival. The United States does Japan treating China increasingly cool. She asleep as it becomes less and less confident about Donald Trump's America. And we'll push you. It's Responsibilities towards Japan onto the treaty. So I think actually China is doing pretty well. I think we've made a big mistake. To underestimate raced tonight. But China's resolve in its capacity to use. Its Influence to get what it wants. I guess. Hugh Watt for my new and Tasha Qassam from from lowy and we're talking about Taiwan and China in the wake of the all in democracies election widely seen as a rebuke to Beijing. The TASHA you say Beijing's going to weaken Taiwan's democracy house. Oh look I think I said that it was going to try and I think it is trying in many ways. It's trying through disinformation Ryan and bypassing more media outlets in Taiwan and then controlling the narrative in that way it is certainly trying to infiltrate grassroots organizations like temple organizations sations and farmers and fisheries groups. The thing is that Beijing is very much moving away. I think from trying to support. Just one side of politics. The Guangdong Minggong which has always been seen as more friendly towards Beijing insofar as has been unsuccessful because the dog is not able to as. We've all of the reasons since we've already outlined. They are not able to deliver Taiwan in any way because of the way of public opinion against China. So now I believe that Beijing is trying to undermine undermine the democracy itself to undermine people's faith in institutions trying to essentially mess it up I think the best expression I've had tended into Crimea so that you have a government paralyzed a government that people do not trust and in that way the system would be much weaker. You Natasha to agree that Beijing is going to try awaken Taiwan's democracy and certainly badging will increase the pressure to open talks on reunification. I suppose the question here is wise. China so sensitive about Taiwan one. I mean think about it Taiwan or Formosa as it was earlier known. It's only been part of China for something like four out of the past one hundred twenty twenty five years since Japanese colonization nineteen ninety-five four out of one hundred twenty five and those four years when the nationalists who fled to Taiwan. They were running the mainland alien so why the sensitivity. He what. We'll Tom Because one hundred and twenty five years is not very long time in the way of China's paypal and the Chinese government see themselves CBS and has precisely one hundred and twenty five years that I see correctly in some ways as being a very black period in the history and that the the great mission of the Communist Party has been to bring China out of that as I said before the rejuvenation of the Chinese people. It's hard to underestimate. Overestimate the the emotional power Al behind this idea of China returning to its previous position and Taiwan has become a and the Chinese Communist Party has made Taiwan into a a symbol of everything bad that happened to China before and everything that Diane resolved to fix and the way in which they they put Hong Kong back into into the fold the YM which have grown their economy the way in which they have reasserted China's military power and have trying at least to reassert itself the parish cultural pass at a speak. All of that is part of the deal but Taiwan is in a sense that the jewel in the crown for them and so I think the the political political and to a certain extent the emotional fright that the Taiwan issue carries does make it absolutely central to the Communist. Party's not just its own sense of itself but it's confidence that it can continue command. The loyalty and achieved legitimacy in the eyes of the Chinese people as what Communist Party delivers not just in terms of prosperity but in terms of China's dignity and position in the world symbolized by Taiwan that is so central to its legitimacy as the government of China Anna. And does that mean Natasha Qassam. That is now a very real danger that the listen Beijing takes from size relection. Is that the only way. Taiwan will ever a unify with mainland China. As at the end of a gun. Look that's entirely possible but I have to say I'm not convinced that as an argument mainly because we like to think think of China's military palate in terms of it being this very quick victory. RV Taiwan because they are coming late outgunned in that sense but none nothing about this would be. It would be very difficult to take Taiwan in terms of its geography and even an invasion is really just the beginning. When you have twenty four a million people who don't want to be a part of your country you have? Refugees flocking to other countries in the region including Australia. You'll have resistance in the streets. You'll have disruption to global supply chains at which Taiwan lies at. Its hot this is not an easy proposition. It is laden with
