to revise down their forecast, how difficult has it been to pretty yields this year? >> really tough because i am looking at the economic fundamentals and it seems like the economic fundamentals are not driving the show in terms of bond yields, the central bank policy, not just with the fed but also on the qb going on around the world and market development, and certainly the brexit vote is the latest pickup in the road. >> the two-year and 10 year yield is rising, how much has this to do with those manufacturing numbers that we got earlier today that showed strength in that sector? >> i think that helped, a global -- people still trying to sit through the brexit wreckage a little bit but if you remember one month ago we had a bad payroll number and my thought was that people might tend to shrug it off as the date went on but we got hit that same day at 10:00 with the manufacturing
.umber, a month ago, very weak we saw a nice rebound today and that helps to give us a sense of the economy, certainly pre-brexit. >> i have to correct myself, manufacturing composite for june 56.5. of the u.s., worrying signs, italian banks look to be collapsing, if they are not bailed out or bailed in, that could cause contagion, the brexit concerns. they create so much uncertainty, people might stop investing, then negative yields all around the world and people continue to buy. why would you expect -- why would you see this as a glass half-full situation? >> especially in the wake of brexit, things in the u.k. and eu are up in the air, my view is that i do not think that will have a major impact on the u.s. economy, the u.s. fundamentals
are good, the consumer powering ahead and fundamentals continue to be good, labor markets are ishtening, the u.s. economy doing all the right things and brexit introduces more risk as the fed people have suggested. my sense is we will get through that ok. matt: what about the yield curve? i was looking at the cleveland fed series which is the 10 year yield minus the three-month yield, i have it up here on my terminal, you can see it on the bloomberg, 19.15 is the code, you can see we have fallen to only one percentage point difference between these. if an investor is willing to get paid the same for three months as for 10 years, that -- doesn't that say something bad about economic expectations? >> that has been the historical interpretation, you have to be careful because central banks
are distorting these markets by intervening. the fed did a lot of qe over the last five years, now others are buying securities and driving yields down. i find it hard to sift through the difference between distortions version -- versus thatconomic signals markets have traditionally sent, i am not sure they are clean. >> talking about economic signals, we have to talk about inflation and the fact that inflation expectations are not there, week as he and oil plateau. -- we could see an oil plateau. you are right, it inflation expectations are solved. solved.ame time -- are we have -- inflation expectations are soft. they will be moving higher on a year-to-year basis as falling
oil prices in the second half of last year. and the court numbers which were running at 13, all of last year it now at 16 and also will continue to be higher forward. that clash between the data and the expectation numbers is something that will be interesting to watch over the next few months. matt: have we come to the end of the road does it feel like for monetary policy and need some real physical change? -- physical change? if i'm running a diner and give discounts to bring people in eventually give to it away for free, at some point i have to redo the whole diner? that is what we need with global infrastructure. >> a lot of what the fed did in the later stages of the easing earlier in this decade was not very effective. others have taken it father
with negative interest rates and there was a time earlier this year when people got excited and it felt like negative interest rates were working and now i think people are becoming more disillusioned. >> can the fed do anything contrary to what other central bank has done? >> to your original question, the broader issues in every country and major economy are not really demand based, they are supply based, that is something the central banks cannot do anything about. that entails fundamental, structural reform and various countries have different things they need to do that everybody has work to do. you, a pleasure having thank you for joining us, stephen stanley at amherst joining us. coming up, our mystery stock of the day, today's pick is writing is best one day gain since march my going up from strong summer sales, it is trying to prove you do not have to be new to be good. ♪
matt: you are watching "bloomberg markets." let's go to the markets desk where julie hyman has the big reveal on today's mystery stock, here is a hint, it is writing its best one-day gain since march by ringing up strong summer sales, it is trying to prove you do not have to be new to be good. i should probably know this. >> goodyear? >> close. something that resales part of its business is reselling something used. >> autonation?
>> close, carmax. it has been helping the shares, they had been down over the past year, nearly 25%, an analyst today at a firm which is a research firm that used to be known as majestic research, says there is a strong increase in seen in thee have first two weeks of the fiscal second quarter. august,not end until the weather probably have a positive impact. that is helping the shares. today, in contrast to the past year, up by almost 4.5%, a best-performing stock in the s&p 500 or were earlier. interesting reaction. carmax's salesf and profit from used cars first make up theed cars biggest proportion of it sales, two thirds, fleet sales, 19%,
new vehicles ticking percent. something else that could be the institute for supply management, nonmanufacturing report, it is a measure of service industries in the united states, faster expansion in june in seven months, that is something going into the u.k. boat that show potentially a good sign for the u.s. economy. consumer discretionary shares, one group holding up well today, autonation, group 1 automotive and sonic, the auto portion of the equation, broadly consumer discretionary doing well. matt: thank you for the second date of car related stocks. a great sector to follow. >> thank you. time for a look at the biggest business stories in the news, the u.s. trade deficit grew inmate by the most in almost one year, american companies
cars,ed imported more mobile phones, and industrial supplies, meanwhile, u.s. exporters are still dealing with sluggish sales overseas. matt: for in home the u.s. hit a three-year low, sales to nonresident foreigners in the u.s. fell from $54 billion to one $4 billion in the last year according to national association of realtors, rising prices have made homes less affordable and the stronger dollar has cut into purchasing power for latin americans, canadians, asians, europeans, and britain's. >> definitely hear walgreens posted a quarterly profit that beat estimates, the drugstore chain was helped by cost cuts and rising sales of prescription , walgreens is waiting for u.s. regular readers to approve its $9 billion takeover of rite aid. ♪ >> that is your business flash. matt: still ahead, european
matt: this is "bloomberg markets." turning to housing, another u.k. property has suspended operations in the wake of the brexit boat, henderson has suspended two feeder funds with more than $5 billion in assets, this comes after three of the country's largest property funds have frozen $12 billion of assets to stop investor redemptions. or more i want to bring in jack setters. what are we seeing? the gates are coming down, investors cannot take their money out yet, not seeing these
companies get rid of assets yet, are we? liquidreal estate is not and it will take time for them to meet redemption requests. what is happening after the gates have come down on these funds, the managers are looking at the portfolios and thinking, what can we sell to raise necessary capital or get credit pay the order to redemption requests, now it is frantic, going through portfolios and deciding what is the most liquid asset, things in london which likely to be a bit more liquid, might attract international investors who might be more in on monday and because of the devaluation of sterling. matt: are they levering up because when people start getting funds for their money back, they will borrow money to pay back the investors that want out, but the ones who are left over are left over with more
leverage than before. contextnk the overall is that these funds are very low if using -- they were punished badly last time around and have learned lessons. happy to establish dealt lines in order to with these redemptions, whether or not that will be the auction they go for or selling assets remains to be seen. the expectation is these ,edemptions, most of them reviewed every 28 days, chances are they will be in place for several months in order to give them time to decide which assets to sell and then going through that whole process of selling a property which can take several months. >> property prices, a chart that shows london property prices in blue, the blue line going up to the volume of real estate transactions which has sharply inclined. -- declined.
will we see property prices decreasing soon and how much threat would this put on fund managers? >> ordinarily, you would expect a big falloff in investment volumes with -- followed by a follow-up on investment values, clearly the referendum, people were reluctant to put things on the market because word they may have to discount in order to get a bye so waiting until after the referendum, not that there was a lot of access in the market and not being bought, not as much on the market to buy. interesting, a standoff between sellers and buyers, sellers who have it in their books and evaluations which is based on recent transactions which are all pre-brexit, at a certain level, and buyers, if there are buyers who are thinking, if i will be buying into the u.k., much more uncertainty, i will be looking for a discount.
our expectation is you will have three months of their a little happening before finally some investors go, we will put some stuff on the market because we need to sell to meet redemptions or because the year in is coming up and we have numbers to hit, then you will get a sense of where pricing is. there is a little bit of evidence that pricing could start to come off before the referendum. one of the brokers says they -- they publish a prime commercial yield and in april of this year, that went up relatively marginally, a few basis points but it was its biggest increase since 2010. there was some signs that we might be looking at some price drops anyway, regardless of the referendum which will not happen. >> great talking to you. thank you so much. matt: we have our chart chat focusing in on not the u.k. but europe. more specifically, the bank
problem, the two crisis or the markets, the brexit and in what is going on in the banking system in europe. banks4, it shows you some want -- one italian bank, a british bank, unicredit in blue, deutsche bank in purple and barclays in pink. the interesting thing is the market cap dropped, after the brexit boat, they have already been coming down, european banks year toing crushed, date, drops of at least 27%, for santander but 63% for unicredit. the italian bank. >> compare that to market cap of
other companies, u.s. companies, deutsche bank was less than snapchat -- worth less than snapchat. out. i never figured that >> market cap growth lagging behind beverages, campbell soup, deutsche bank going in the negative when we are talking about market cap growth. , guy johnson scary was showing one earlier that's jeremy, nonperforming loans, it would scare me if i were a depositor in a italian banks, italy is the line on the top, the bottom line is u.s., germany, the u.k., none of these have nonperforming loans 3% compared to the entire books, italian banks have a percent of -- 18% of their books nonperforming. that is scary. we will be discussing more when bloomberg markets return. ♪ .
headlines for the bloomberg first word news with taylor riggs in the newsroom. : donald trump and newt gingrich are hitting the road today for a rally in cincinnati. may be a trial balloon to test chemistry. once theaker paul ryan director of national intelligence to deny hillary clinton access to classified information drink campaign. this comes as republicans continue to express frustration over her use of an e-mail server during her time as secretary of state. inquiryfficial british calls the invasion of iraq a failure. it criticizes intelligence services and the military. >> we have concluded that the
u.k. chose to join the invasion of iraq before the peaceful options for disarmament had been exhausted. military action at that time was not a last resort. taylor: the biggest impact your reputation may be on tony blair who is responsible for britain's involvement. blair said he never used lies or deceit as a pretense to invade iraq. and the white man accused of killing nine at a church want charges dismissed. charges they will drop if the state decides not to pursue the death penalty. state prosecutors are also pursuing the death penalty against him. matt: thank you. bill gross has some advice for
the fed -- take a lesson in credit from monopoly, the game. if only fed governors and presidents understood more about monopoly and a tad less about liket historical models the taylor rule and phillips curve, our economy and its future prospects might be a little better off. here is the latest outlook from janus capital. theng up the same day as fed minutes which will be released in an hour and half. joining us for a preview of what we might hear from the fed is john gill's men and are -- and economist.rg reputations -- expectations of a rate hike have in swept away after the brexit vote. why should we care about the june minutes? guest: because we want to
understand what are the reasons behind the downgrading growth projections and that is important to understand the fed's thinking. were on a campaign trying to boost expectations for a rate hike just a few months ago and all of the sudden, they decide to downgrade growth and move slower. is it brags it or is it something else? matt: is it possible that the united states federal reserve let's little tiny great britain posco to leave the eu push them around as far as policy is concerned? or is this a stanchion against global outlooks? guest: that's the question. i don't think the brexit will impact growth to a large extent, but we are hearing both sides. president williams said it's not going to be that again issue for the u.s. that president dudley
said it would be very important and it would be a big impact. if this is not just an excuse for the fed to give us another $200 as we pass go, it seems a fairly of fish fed, at least a fairly dovish chair. do they want to do that which bill gross advises them not to? what bill gross is saying is that you need to get more than $200 to pass go for the economy to expand and low interest rates policies are having the reverse effect. instead of increasing the money supply, they are leaving people to put money in their mattresses and save. it's hurting pensions, insurance companies, banks, and credit isn't growing. he says for the economy to grow, you need private credit. matt: so is he saying helicopter money? guest: he says helicopter money
and as he has been saying for years, the fed needs to raise interest rates and get off zero and give an incentive for people to do more than save, to put their money to work. to get more than $200 when you pass go. shery: turn to the made jobs report. we have this decision by the fed but we had positive data from the nonmanufacturing composite. factor into their decision and what are we expecting to see in the minutes? first of all, looking at the data, the data have been mixed. very encouraging signs from the surveys, but on the hasr hand, growth decelerated. maybe a lax impact from slowdown in growth in the first quarter.
think growth will rebound in the second quarter and we are seeing signs of that. but it's not going to be something super great gross. by thehas been limited lack of credit growth and consumption, personal consumption growth has been limited by the lack of credit growth. so the bad numbers could be good news for wall street if the fed decides to take the data and make it rain. for is what he's pushing and they are not going to do that if they get good or just decent data. i don't know what the fed is going to do. but the needs to be more money in the system according to bill gross and that money could come from fiscal stimulus, like folks in washington saying let's do
infrastructure investment or just shower people with money. or it could come from the private sector which hasn't happened. people have not been borrowing because they are concerned about taking on risk. they have been deleveraging and the deleveraging continues. people say of times, things they think the fed should are goingn what they to do. does bill gross think the fed is listening to him? , het: a few years ago called the fed increasingly addled. i don't know how much attention they are paying to him. he only manages 1.4 billion dollars, that's just chicken feed. are for shrinking bloomberg word is
for no fed hike in the next couple of years. it doesn't look like is going to be a rate increase coming from janet yellen. shery: tell me about the de-globalization concerned. guest: the brexit vote was part of that. people are saying we don't want our local economy did hated by an internationalist group and we want to limit immigration. that is something that has happened in britain and is going on in france. there are a lot of aspects to donald trump's campaign that appeal to similar instincts or feelings among people, concerns they are being left behind by globalization. matt: a fascinating story.
coming up at 3:00 eastern time, bill gross will be joining bloomberg markets with reaction to the fed minutes and his advice for fed chair janet yellen. shery: you are looking at live pictures of -- live pictures of hillary clinton speaking where she is questioning donald trump's business record. you can watch her whole speech at the bloomberg live go. this is bloomberg. ♪

as the global economy struggled in the wake of the financial crisis. in late 2012, -- gold jumped 20% at the start of 2016 is turmoil rocked equities. here is the background. the dollar's pegged to gold ended in the 1970's, after spiking in the 80's, prices slumped in the following two decades, causing central banks to shrink their reserves. investors flocked to gold backed afterge traded products they were listed in 2003. the bears say there are a few reasons to own it now because central banks have engineered an economic recovery without
sparking hyperinflation. the dollar is another favorite haven and higher interest rates make gold less attractive because it does not earn a return. throughout history, gold has proven its worth among the arsenal of investments. olson say threat to the global stability is uncertain and gold is one of the few possible havens. for more stories, visit bloomberg.com. a very interesting look at gold there, one of the places people run for safety. a more popular safe haven is in sovereign debt. seen that trade ramp up, pushing the yield down as people pile into u.s. yields. we saw the japanese twenty-year debt go negative for the first time.

specs. it is all current in that regard and has a starting price point of $399, so it puts them in the midrange segment. i think they have to do better in china. they have to get a lower market to compete. >> should they move on to other markets like india because that is where the next phase of growth could be? : india's a separate discussion. it's a different culture there. everything i have heard is that it is a much more price sensitive coulter. you can see it in the average selling price. above 275 in terms of the average price. i don't think that's the answer. i think the answer is to move

and the brexit impact on the global economy. let's head to the markets desk where julie hyman has a look at the market reversals. it is almost across the asset class universe that we have seen a lot of turnarounds going into these fed minutes where investors are looking for insight. here is the s&p 500 starting its climb around 11:00 and going decisively positive. we did get data on the service industries which makes up the bulk of the economy. we did not see stocks go positive until much later. we saw movement in the 10 year note which hit a record low earlier in the day before it began a slow climb to little changed. prices, whichil
were battered yesterday and today, seeing a reversal as the day has gone on. let's take aar, look there to see the movement -- a similar situation, except it turned lower. now down about .1%. all of this coming. all to the u.s. averages, meaning we are in the green across the board. pretty much in burning the moves we had earlier in the session. in anl see what happens hour when we get the fed minutes. matt: we also got a prominent note from a prominent market strategist. we could see a pullback of between 5% and 10% and perhaps see a lift to 2100. his note is titled flat is the
new up. essentially, the s&p has traded more or less sideways and essentially, if we are going to have a flat year, that's almost a best case scenario. he says you are looking at a maturing lyrical cycle, decelerating buybacks and political uncertainty that puts pressure on stocks. he says return to positive but slow earnings growth and a lack of investment alternatives and a cautious said should put a floor under stocks. the average. here's the s&p. here's the wall street average -- the average is 2154. to be fair, strategist have cut their forecast, but they remain steady since the big cut at the beginning of the year and have
not trimmed them recently. ont: let's check in bloomberg's first word news with ramy inocencio in the newsroom. john hickenlooper already has the job as governor of colorado but at the sun valley conference today, he told david gura in an exclusive interview that he's open to a new pursuit, running mate for hillary clinton. >> if you are someone who has if you are one of the people who can make a difference and your company -- and your country need you, you take it seriously. he has been the governor of colorado since 2011. president obama will slow down the troop withdrawal from afghanistan. instead ofbama: going down to 5500 troops by the end of this year, the united

is there a lower bound? gary: sure. eventually. although we have seen negative rates in europe and japan, so zero is not necessarily a lower bound. over a year ago, my target for 32% and for the treasury, 1%, and we are closing in on those numbers rapidly. do you think when we hit those numbers that we will turn around and recover again? inflation is the odds on that. if you had 2% nominal yield on the 30 year treasury and 2% deflation, that would be a 4% real yields which by historical standards is very high. what i dubbed in 1981 as the
bond rally of a lifetime and that wouldwas 15.2%, be over. i have up until now never bought long treasuries for myself. i couldn't care what it is as long as it is going down and that -- treasuries have outperformed the s&p by six and a half times. we are a lot closer to the end than we are at beginning. shery: i want to talk about the flattening yield curve. the spread tightening to the tightest since 2007. red.n see the areas in do you think this is forecasting
a recession? gary: probably not. that's why i am not in the studio. but it is very different. normally, the yield curve hasrts because the fed gotten worried about an overheating economy and jacks up short rates. we get a flat or inverted yield curve, it is quite different. the fed would be reluctant to go negative on short rates while you have investors driving down the yields on treasuries. longer-term treasuries are attractive. becausesafe haven yields are higher than they are in most relevant countries, so foreign investors get a higher yield and with a stronger dollar, they get a currency gain
to boot. a lot of foreigners see it as a safe haven and if we are headed to deflation, that is another reason. long-term yields will further flatten yield curves and that's tough on the banks. banks have been relieved of the origination of securities, derivatives throughout proprietary trading and so on. not been thats attractive, particularly when the yield curve is flattening and the yield curves are getting compressed. matt: let me ask you about stocks. joe weisenthal put this together this morning and it shows the yield on 30 year treasuries going down below the s&p 500 dividend yield. shocking to me. is this a sign investors might
want to get into stocks? is it paying more than the 30 year? question is what is the yield telling you? this is goingow to come out, but i think if we look back on this in another five years or so, we will conclude this wasn't extraordinary time and was foretelling some things we don't fully comprehend. yields aree lower foretelling that there are big problems out there, then the dividend yields on stock is not safe. you could get that compression because of dividend coming down. yields could go down as stock prices go up but dividends could come down as well. matt: thank you for joining us. , stickinging their with his 1% forecast for the 10 year and 2% forecast for the 30

happen? guest: a lot of technology markets, even california, where there's a perception that is difficult to build because of supply constraints and regulation, you see construction in northern california, in denver, in the big texas markets. a lot of the markets that were the leaders in this recovery are grappling with -- i would not call it a supply glut more supply than we have seen in the last five to seven years. we are showing urban apartment rents coming back down. growth has decelerated. i thought rents grew by .9% during the second quarter and it was a rebound from the first. guest: rents are bouncing back a bit. but if you look at it on a year-over-year basis, you are

are gaining in commercial use and just for fun, the entire industry is changing rapidly. companies are working feverishly to thought technology that make them cheaper and cost-effective and investors are noticing. it's good to carol massar and cory johnson. i'm joined by mark siegel, he's very much involved in the cutting edge of what is going on with runs. talk to me about what kinds of deals you are seeing. mark: we are seeing a lot of interesting software companies. their big hardware companies supplying the drones. companies are doing interesting things for surveillance and photography, for collision avoidance, which will be a core technology to make drones. we have invested in a company doing delivery. this could be for food, for pharmaceuticals.
company whichve a is detecting drones. becausethe other side criminals are getting creative and using these to get onto wi-fi networks, to interfere with airplanes and believe it or not, prisons are having a big problem. cory: tell me about the prison problem. used toones are being deliver drugs and weapons into prison. a typical prison has multiple week and they want to see who picks it up and try to figure out who flew the drone and go arrest them. egg are is a much issued and i realized it was, but it turns out this is a problem at every single prison and airports probably have an incident once a week. so they are able to detect the drones, determine the trajectory and, depending on whether you
are a prison or airport or stadium, how you deal with that rep might be different. carol: what kind of regulatory environment will be watching over the drone environment and you are investing in these companies. what kind of regulatory environment the want to see that keeps it safe and smart but does not impede the growth of drones? mark: the regulatory environment is going to be key. the faa requires drones are operated within line of sight of the operator and that does in pedal the distance that you can use these legally, but what is going to happen is that eventually, that's going to go to an operator being able to pilot these looking at a camera on the drone and ultimately, what we hope and what we are planning on is that there will be autonomous flights once there is a safety record. buts going to be a process,
the faa has indicated they are willing to work with these companies and be forward thinking, but there will have to be a lot of flight hours accumulated to prove the safety of these drones is adequate to be flown over populated areas. cory: is there an underlying makingogical advancement this happen? there certainly an interest, but i wonder if there is something that has happened technologically that is making this more possible now? are has been a remote control airplane and helicopter market for a while. the components of these drones have gotten cheap and the computational power to fly them -- i think the other big factors are that you can now fly these with your iphone. to be a hobbyist, you don't need to invest hours and hours to control them and the high-quality cameras. imagery and surveillance was one
of the initial applications for these and that is part of what created this upturn. but it is going to be all of these software applications. cory: they sound like they might be really commoditized. the: our feeling is hardware pieces going to become very commoditized. it will probably always be specialized and purpose built. cory: for drug smugglers, apparently. even for legal applications. i think the services are interesting. a human beingave that has to climb to an unsafe location or go somewhere remote, think about utility type line inspections. there's an interesting company in san francisco that does commercial roof inspections. all of those buildings in
new york with scaffolding. mark: any of these laces were people go into dangerous conditions. cory: it has to be fun to hear all of those pitches. going to toss it back to you at bloomberg tv. ahead, the chairman of societe generale warns of an italian banking crisis. this is bloomberg. ♪ you guy's be good. i'll see you later

the italian banking crisis could spread to the rest of europe. what is needed to prevent systemic crisis coming from the italian banks? >> what is needed is a european solution. i think that has not happened so far. had national solutions but we need a european solution and a clear back up to the self-fulfilling expectations that drive the contagion in the banking system. some italian banks have a couple of problems and one is nonperforming loans on the other is profitability. so ifre not profitable you put in more capital, you don't solve the problem. that will not be sufficient to generate good returns so you need restructuring of the
banking system and an opportunity to consolidate the italian banking system to make it more profitable. this requires some political determination. consolidation means restructuring, less jobs, cost-cutting and this is the hard part which is not really been addressed in the italian banking system. other systems like the german banking system, if you look at the stock prices, they are also going down. there are also too many banks in germany and they are not profitable. the capital is not attractive to the investor. >> let me pick up on the political angle. let's talk about the political will to change the way the bad loans are dealt with. is there any point dealing with the bad loan story until you have changed the legislation that would allow quicker resolution? are we getting the sequence
wrong in tackling the problem? >> the government has tolemented some legislation speed up recovery. it's not clear if this is sufficient or not. there has been said movement there. now they need to deal with the stocks of nonperforming loans. they need to incorporate the losses, whatever they are, they have to be recognized. and then you need a division that clears the way. the next step is how to make these banks viable and avoid them being zombie banks because they cannot be sufficiently profitable to generate new loans. there are a series of steps which are politically costly. banks are delicate issues and you have to reduce employment
and put money into banks. it's not politically very easy things to do and to sell to the public opinion. that was the societe generale ceo. vragling says he does not see a threat from italian banks. i hope italy finds a way to recapitalize but i don't think it's a moment to give up the framework we created over the last few years. the banking union is a major achievement for monetary union. the ecb has done a tremendous operational and an important part of that is the so-called drid and our states. this is important to make it possible to have a common
supervisor for the 130 systemically important banks in the euro area and have a common framework. it's very important to protect this framework. the framework also allows many ways out even in a situation like we see today. is inalian government dialogue with the european commission how to apply the framework to these specific circumstances. i am confident they will find a think it's ad not moment to give up the framework that was not easy to create and which is, in principle, very useful to have. be drivingld it investors? to run the banks? >> that is part of our new system. that has to be a mandatory bil-in before public funds can
be used in that's part of the banking union, the brd. there are many other ways along that. indeed, that is part of the system, yes. >> are you worried this could become a systemic problem? spanish and portuguese banks and other banks be involved and sell off like the problems in italy? we see true that weakness in the banking sector since the referendum in the u.k. it's surprising because that's not much of a direct link. there is an indirect link because now the market perception is that interest rates will remain lower for longer. that has a believe negative impact on profitability. ,hat is the indirect link
otherwise it's not so easy to understand white banks have these additional problems -- why banks have these additional problems since the referendum. we are not all in a crisis. worldwide,rope and many steps have been taken the last two years to strengthen the banking system. also in europe, we have done that. the banks have doubled their capital since 2008. and thenew regulations bank and system is stronger than it was before. i think we see the benefits of that now. there can be problems. we're that but i think much more able than the past to deal with it. coming up, we hear from the colorado governor about his meeting with hillary clinton and that interview is coming up next. this is bloomberg. ♪

everything from retail to construction and the data suggest the u.s. economy was picking up speed before the british vote to leave the european union. much of the credit goes to consumer spending. foreign homebuying in the u.s. will hit a three-year low. sales to nonresident foreigners fell in the u.s. from $54 billion to $44 billion in the last year according to the national association of realtors. rising prices have made homes less affordable and a stronger dollar has cut into purchasing power for everyone around the globe from latin america to asia and europe. and that is the bloomberg business flash. colorado governor john hickenlooper said he and hillary clinton briefly discussed her search for a vice president during a meeting last week. he said he would seriously consider the job if asked. insat down with david gura
sun valley, idaho where they discussed the economy and politics. i think we are the fourth lowest unemployment, around 3%. you look at how much oil and gas we have and have had, to have that low unemployment after you have seen such a setback is remarkable. the key is to diversify your economy. 25 years ago, we were a one trick pony. our civic leaders worked very hard to make sure we have a fully diversified economy, not just oil and gas and not just real estate development. we are a technology center and aerospace center, cyber security center -- a lot of these different industries that in some ways complement each other. theyyou go through a dip help make sure things stay steady. david: were you nervous when you
saw oil plummeting? did that make people think about the 80's? >> obviously, you look at any industry that is significant in colorado and our oil industry is $30 billion per year. it's a significant part of our economy. wethe same time, we thought had a diversified economy and i think we were pleasantly surprised to see our economy kept moving along. david: there is a concern about wage growth nationally. what can you do to encourage wages to grow in your state? >> within the present system, wage growth is a function of demand. if you have more jobs out there than you have workers, if your economis growing, you will see wage growth. that's a basic fact of capitalism. we've got that and we are beginning to see wage growth finally. probably not as faster as much as we would like but we are -- i
worry more about these whole industries where people lose -- you have a career for 20 or 30 orrs and then technology innovation somehow gets rid of that and dramatically diminishes the number of people you need in that industry. we are spending a lot of time trying to figure out how to rapidly retrain people to get them from an old industry that's going away into a new industry where we know it will grow. david: asking about politics, you had an hour-long meeting with hillary clinton. you might be thinking of something else? >> you have not read my memo. david: would you entertain a vice presidency? >> sure, especially if you look at the challenges this country and the world faces right now. asked are someone who is and one of the people who can really make a difference and
your country needs you, of course you do it. david: can you talk about it? of the timemost talking about workforce transition and just what we were talking about. more rapidly transition people from old careers into new careers. david: when you became mayor and then governor, people talked about your style and bringing something different to colorado. is that something that could translate well to washington? but i do think that we need more people who have a small business that ground. in the lifetime public service and people who understand how politics in washington works. at the state and city level and the national level, getting more people from business into public service -- we started a fellowship program in colorado with local private equity guys and one of them is helping fund
a government fellowship where we 'st our largest companies' ceo who have an inclination to public service may will commit in a highlymonth design curriculum by which we will let them see that being in public service is not all bad. there is a huge benefit that more than compensates for the loss of privacy for some of the other sacrifices you make. we can figure out how to get more people from the private sector and successful leaders, it to come into public service either in a cabinet or as a mayor or governor or running a large nonprofit but not just sitting on the ward, i think that makes the world and the country dramatically stronger. david: you talked with hillary clinton about the economy. what other issues are most important to you?
you spoke forcefully for more gun control. do you think that will be a big issue in the general election? >> i think security, especially when people have economic challenges -- let's say they have lost their career so they have a level of financial insecurity, their safety becomes more important to them. whether it's the threat of terrorism, of violence in urban and suburban areas, all these things weigh heavily on peoples minds. as elected officials, we have a responsibility to address those concerns. , we used totarts say quality of life starts with a good job. people have to have work. wrapped around that, you need security, education and we've got to control the cost of health care. those three things right there are kind of crucial. it all comes back to jobs. matt: that was the colorado
the fomc is set to release minutes from his june meeting at the top of the hour. bill gross has a message for janet yellen and the fed of they are listening. he writes in his latest outlook -- i think he does not mind if they are listening or not. joining us now is someone we always listen to, carl ricka donna. i was thinking that bill gross has a lot to say for what the fed should not be doing or doing wrong but is he really telling them what they should be doing? does he really want helicopter money and another $1 trillion on
the balance sheet? but tos offering advice say they are making a mistake is a stretch at this point. we have a sluggish economy and a fad that is moving very gradually to globalized interest rates. the course seems to be relatively on the mark. shery: taylor and philips models based on inflation, false idols, what your take? and think janet yellen company don't subscribe to closely to the taylor rule in the first place. it provides a rough policy framework for the element of human discretion is much more powerful than using a simple black box model. i don't think they are adhering to that too much. in macroelevant economic terms is the commentary on the phillips curve.
we cannot say that the phillips curve is broken until we have convincingly moved through full unemployment and we have only recently done that if that decline in the unemployment rate in may holds up. 75%l employment could be 4. so we don't know if that will create inflation pressures in the economy to we blow through those levels. if we continue on a downward trajectory -- matt: how much lower could we possibly go? >> at the end of the 1990's, we had a free handle on the unappointed rate. it's definitely low in the phillips curve has changed its slope and it's flatter. until we have blown through full employment, we don't know if it's broken. i suspect it is not and you see increasing evidence of the types of clues where we are close to full employment with increasing evidence of wage pressures across industry sectors. a little labor inflation could go a long way to boosting
inflation, one of the fed's goals as well as providing a significant tailwind to consumer spending which would really change the feel of the economy in the second half of this year. shery: the fed's meeting happened before the brexit vote and they became more dovish. what does this tell us about the future of the economy? the june fomc of meeting, the fed clearly took a dovish turn. that was the point where most folks thought the brexit vote was going to fail. now we have a reassessment of the domestic economy from the see that things are worse in light of the constriction and uncertainty caused by the vote. matt: what you are saying is these are short-term problems to deal with. the u.k. leaving the eu is not going to have massive fallout on
the u.s. economy, right? >> it shouldn't, however we have to watch financial contagion. you see what's happening in the italian banking center and credit spreads, if that continues to worsen and bank lending conditions continue to worsen, all of this has a risk of crossing the atlantic. shery: we will have those minutes out in a little bit. thank you so much. the fomc minutes will be coming out in a few moments. at 3:00 p.m. new york time, bill gross will join us and we will get details on his monopoly notice. ♪
