10:01 am
now slightly lower. both of those indexes last week up for weeks in a row but take a look at the nasdaq down about 1%. the nasdaq 100 down nearly 1.2%. the nasdaq down for a second week in a row. let's look at the last three days. 2.4% since the end of march great this has to do with the faang trade. facebook down more than 3% today , down more than the last three days. that is bleeding into some of the stronger performers on those fears. amazon alphabet what a great quarters but they are sliding on contagion fears. netflix down, the lowest 100 day moving average. let's hop into the bloomberg and see what's happening for the nasdaq because the has been some weakness here. you can see this and we see this is a six-month chart.

10:04 am
look to be stepping back from the brink of a trade war last week. tensions between the u.s. and china continue to simmer. for more on where global trade tension stand we are joined by adam tooze. a new book coming out. written.er books he's which won several prizes. he is with us in studio. i want to begin with a quote from an op-ed. "normal talk about globalization and competitiveness is directed inward at the nation. taking the idea and pointing it out work, calling out his suppose it foes. in doing so he do liberally fosters economic nationalism."
10:05 am
what exactly is happening with globalization and nationalism? adam: the thing we have to do is distinguish between the run-of-the-mill competitiveness talk with national survival in the global market. it is spoken all the time and all sorts of different forums. from what president trump seems to be doing which is an attack mystic relationship. for me the shock was the description of the eu as a foe. he immediately backpedal to say they are not that guys, but the way he turned competitive relationship into something more like a boxing match, you are changing the nature of the game for everyone. vonnie: this is what president trump is so brilliant that along with the brexiteers. financeuring and over
10:06 am
our top order. this cognitive dissonance is being used to give them more power. is deeply confusing. if you ask what the largest car exporter from united face to china with which america runs a surplus, it is bmw and it makes it part in south carolina which is its largest production facility in the world. if you ask what blue-collar americans drive, the constituency trump is looking at, they drive compact cars imported from mexico and south korea. the sense of the car industry as an american industry is a figment of trump's imagination from a past period where it really was true that what was good for gm was good for the united states. that is no longer true. vonnie: where do we end up with all of this? president trump came last
10:07 am
weekend talk about free trade and fair trade. what happens, does it take the midterms and beyond to see where both parties stand economically? >> it is an astonishing confusing picture running a multiple different speeds. renegotiations, the chinese-american standoff. scrambled bys an the internal confusion within the trump administration when you have the president making policy on the spur, a struggle between mnuchin and light eyes are very that you have procedures of an investigation like the one in the auto industry which could run an entire year and the rest of the world has to respond to this confusion and respond to the fact americans pull the trigger on steel and aluminum. the large auto producers of the world have to meet to consider their possible
10:08 am
responses to the market escalation. that ann's fundamental -- that adds fundamental radical uncertainty. it was one of the steady features of the global economy. one of the deepest integrated sectors. caroline: fundamental radical uncertainty. this is something the markets have to navigate. i'm looking at how the market reaction is. we had earnings from caterpillar with $200 million tariff related headwind. tyson foods blaming the trade dispute. ramifications across several sectors we are seeing. it is also in part because of the tit-for-tat quality of this. all of a sudden you find u.s. agriculture in the firing line. bmw finds itself in the
10:09 am
crosshairs not simply because it , but a lot of fancy cars also it's the largest american car exporter to china and it finds itself caught up in those interconnections. this is before we even start talking about places where you can find a major merger between the european-american chip producer foiled by refusal of chinese regulators to give the green light. we've seen a shaking of the fundamental assumptions about what the future looks like and where we are headed. the consequences of that in markets we see. we see the prices of autostart gyrating. there is very serious uncertainty in which market active lab to hedge against. see the shaking of the market in terms of auto sectors, we sought gangbusters in terms of u.s. economic growth. when i'm looking at that, we saw the trade uncertainty may be
10:10 am
higher than they would be and the crowing of 4.1% growth may have to be dialed back. when you think the trade tensions will hit economic growth and bring something to bear for president trump? an effect with people stocking up on u.s. soil particularly. that is going to disappear as we move forward through the year. see a similar phenomenon and the question is the long-term impact on investment in particular in the rearrangement of supply chain to -- chains of a global level. numbers in the night is a cell phone up sharply. uncertainty on both sides with chinese real estate investors whether or not they will any longer be possible to take money out of china. those kind of effective going to come through over the medium
10:11 am
rather than the short term. vonnie: if you were to write a new afterword or new introduction, what parallels to today do you think there are? adam: the really alarming parallel is the significance of the united states leadership in the world economy with politics or its absence. if you want to know the switches are which fundamentally change the parameters onto which somebody like hitler's came to power but also the switch which allowed japanese imperialists off the hook or mussolini in the 1930's, it is the waning confidence on the part of elites in all of those countries that they can count on a future shaped by an american power. this was the gamble of the 1990's with regard to china. if we build it they will calm. if we build the framework, china will emerge as a responsible

" whichhor of "crashed will be out on shelves next week. the translations will be out within the next six weeks. here is a quote. "in the 10 years since the crisis, the idea is the economy
10:18 am
has moved beyond politics and play of international power has been exposed as a self-serving illusion. donald trump's must attack of the manifestation of the disillusionment and the one that matters most. with little respect for the market unless they deliver the outcome he likes." how would president trump have dealt with the crisis of 2008? question hank paulson was asked. i think it's a little unfair to trump. trump in fact in 2008 was an obama'sn advocate of policies and went on to defend the stimulus. the question really is whether interventionism would permit him also to think hard about the international dimensions which were key in 2008.
10:19 am
if there's one thing we have learned about the crisis in the years since is the significance of its global dimension, particularly in the relationship between the u.s. and european banks sector. and what really made the difference compared to sit a great depression in the early 30's with the ability of the fed the entire dollar-based global banking system. that is the trillion dollar question about any future management of global financial races as well. -- to the national authorities of the united states have a license to do what's necessary to stabilize the global economy? they did in 2008. caroline: i'm also looking at central-bank policy across the world. now when we are looking for , with suchon international ramifications, i'm looking at how the bond yields are all fighting to climbing today on the back of expectations that the oj may

start to fine-tune their guidance tomorrow. we might see a hint of normalization from japan. this has huge global affect. -- is this just the new normal? adam: it's difficult to know what normal means. the entire global money machine has been subject to massive intervention by the central bank and even when they are not intervening, we are asking why aren't they intervening. it's a bit like paradise. that's the world we are in. significantot just in quantitative terms but also symbolic because it's the last bank standing in the qe game. the ecb has announced their plan out. the boj has got its foot firmly on the panel. that's the question markets are posing couple will the japanese ease up. givenestion is can they

that commitment to a 2% inflation target with they are well away from achieving. that i think is the dilemma. can they keep going faced with the side effects and damaging consequences and distortions created by the monetary expansion they've engaged in. vonnie: given you've been contemplating macro questions of last several months, let me ask you this. is the liberal order failing and if so, what is next? undoubtedlyk it is going through a spectacular crisis. it is a system that needs driving and it was driven badly in crucial moments and that has profoundly delegitimize denver the systems managers at crucial moments were revealed in competent that was profoundly delegitimizing. and the nations that were taken to stabilize as spectacular as they were lacked the political legitimacy to make them permanent. i think that's really the question.
10:22 am
we really are now at a time of testing as to whether or not the liberal order can be re-stabilized by intelligent policy and that i think is the fundamental question facing europe, the united states, japan and their partners in east asia. adam tooze, professor of history at columbia university. author of the upcoming book "crashed." this is bloomberg. ♪
