normalooks like the new and if not the trade war, then a tech war. huawei is the beginning. united states and president trump not feeling very comfortable about china's rise to prominence in the way they are dealing with the world. i might be wrong. that is how i read it. the reasonexample, for threatening more tariffs -- they are not economic. it is more pride. francine: if it starts hurting the 2020my, given election, will the u.s. not back
down? christopher: you would hope so. it is not going to hurt u.s. economy as much as other economies. it will hurt it but not very much. be, when making a political case, before, the election you will say look what we have done to them. we have taken some cost. i don't agree. i can see the playing politics and avoiding. francine: we talked about this in the last couple weeks. at what point does it hurt u.s. economy? think we are potentially already seeing it in the data.
growth decelerate and one q to two q. production number softer. cap expending numbers softer. the real channel will be the margin . line.gin this is not going away anytime soon. that has been a 30 year trend of globalization, structurally fantastic for corporate margins/profitability. if we are talking about reversing, that will not just be about second-quarter earnings, it will be in the numbers for many years to come. francine: does it mean chief executives will just have to get used to it? capex will pick up again? this is the new normal? or we will see the consumer tailing or a depressed investment? andrew: the risk is more to the latter. without the market fully realizing it, many tech capex
boom over the last two years. this represents a catalyst to pull back from that. confidence is everything for the consumer and for business. this is one more reason not to do something, to push activity back to a furniture -- to a future quarter. francine: what are other unintended consequences? it is about technological supremacy. the worst is the uncertainty. business needs to know what kind of environment they have when they are investing. you are investing now for yields in the future, next five years or more. if you think, ok i don't like immigration policy of this country, i will affect trade. they are completely unrelated. -- your business
analysis, forecasting, saying, this is where i expect the economy to go because these fundamentals are around. some completely unrelated political thing comes over. back.ss pulls it is not a long-term investment that will give you sustained growth. francine: we will talk about the impact, next. christopher and andrew, both staying with us. next,ith "surveillance," including, and then there were 10. they will discuss the front runners. plus, inside track on trade war. interview excuse of at 9:40 a.m. u.k. time. this is bloomberg. ♪

with a plan, discipline and focus to lead us out by october. >> our failure to deliver brexit has put our country and our party in great peril. >> we need to deliver but not be defined by brexit. we can get to the center ground to attract people however they voted. >> free-trade agreement with the eu and new free trade deals across the globe. i will ensure we are out of the common agricultural policy, of the parliament, of the eu and taking back control of our money, porters and laws. >> i always said i would be prepared to leave without a deal if there is a straight choice. without brexit, there will be no conservative government, maybe no conservative party. francine: let's get more on the leadership contest. let's and christopher, also welcome, rosalind.
this process will play out in the next couple confused.many are >> we have a beauty contest essentially. candidates will launch campaigns. thursday, tory party members start voting. are presented to party membership, 160,000 people who can vote in the u.k., who will then pick the leader who becomes the prime minister. you will probably see the lesser-known names start to pilaf across that process in the next few weeks the heavy hitters will come to the fore. francine: they still have the same people in parliament. arithmetic doesn't change much. they're all saying they will get brexit done.
they will be the ones to see it through. wouldwo are saying they go for a hard brexit, crashing out with no deal. they're not saying how they would do that. roadblocks are still there. brussels, eu says we are not going to reopen the deal. we have done enough and been very patient. at home, a bit of goodwill for a new leader but also many lawmakers want a soft brexit or don't want that to happen at all. theresa may was unable to do those two things. francine: great bloomberg terminal saying bojo will get this. rosalind: he is very popular with the rank-and-file, especially in rural areas, where many tory party members are in favor of brexit. you could also have candidates like dominic, last night, pro brexit rank-and-file in the
party. he pulled very well out of that meeting. momentuite long at the but he is seen as a front-runner along with the former environment secretary and jeremy hunt. bojo is boris johnson, that is how we call him in the u.k. christopher: i cannot see how they will do anything very different from what theresa may was doing. same parliament voting. eu says we won't renegotiate terms. if there were a candidate, i would go to eu and say, i want norway or to be part of the sigel market. they would do it. they would renegotiate. question, and how much are you in, how much out? what things come under
jurisdiction of the eu courts and british courts? they will not do it. it has been three years. francine: no deal increased? christopher: i'm not sure. i cannot not see parliament voting for it. ministerhink i prime could sign a no deal agreement or just get the country out given that they all, including the candidates, voted to let parliament have the final say. this as a good way of electing a leader that will see this through parliament. he or she will have come from within the cabinet probably. they tried before. they failed. they try again. who are you going to try with? views are so polarized. these are decisions that will affect the country for the next generation, at least.
francine: you think we should have a general election? christopher: it can be done. not just yes or no. on the package you can offer. francine: if you are a chief executive, this is another uncertainty. we have bad numbers yesterday in terms of data. you also have to model the possibility jeremy corbyn as prime minister. andrew: we talked about trade and the effect on confidence. look. this is another big uncertainty that is unresolved. it is not just uncertainty in london. when i visit family in birmingham, people have very little idea what will happen next. businesses do not know what will happen next. this is one of these things where we are still approaching
the october 31 deadline and it is still not clear, what compromises are going to be made? what decisions will be made that move us closer to resolution? this continues to weigh on growth, push gdp estimates for the u.k. lower and probably will do so until there is more clarity. francine: thank you. up, when should you have the next policy move? one says, you should not wait for brexit. this is bloomberg. ♪
francine: this is "bloomberg surveillance," i'm francine lacqua in london. let's stay with the u.k.. michael saunders, more hawkish on the monetary policy committee says the boe does not have to wait until brexit is resolved to hike rates. he says the economy will move to significant excess demand in the next 2-3 years. christopher, does the not need to hike or regardless of brexit? christopher: i think they should wait. there's so much uncertainty. we don't know what we're going to get. nothing very much is happening
in finance now. the economy is slowing. hiking rates would add to uncertainty, increasing negative forces, if you like. francine: not even cut. christopher: no. francine: michael saunders is one of the most hawkish members. andrew: we don't think they will hike anytime soon. we don't have them hiking until august, 2020. market focus with the boe and fed with uncertainty on brexit, trade, it is all about the effect on demand curve. what we probably aren't considering is the effect on the supply curve. brexit and trade are negative shocks. they potentially have inflationary pressure. we have not seen it yet. francine: the last report said the market was mispricing the possibility of a rate hike, if
the u.k. manages a smooth transition with brexit. is the market mispricing something? christopher: you have to look at probability. otherwise, you cannot talk about pricing. chances of a smooth transition to brexit are so low now that we cannot really tell if it is mispricing or not. there is so much uncertainty this.ed toward cannot put it down and pretty numbers of statistics. it is uncertain. we don't know what prices we will get. wait and see. as people collect more information, we will see at the very least who will be prime minister. we talked about the
april weakness yesterday and michael saunders said due to the unwinding and renters stockpiles from first quarter. next, deutsche downgrade. trouble worsening after downgrading the credit rating. we will have a full round up of the markets. markets smoother today. u.s. futures on the up. investors turning focus on the u.s.-china trade arena. goldean bonds, steady with after yesterday's slump. this is bloomberg. ♪

this is bloomberg. deutsche bank's troubles are worsening. it is downgraded to triple be. -- triple-b. this reflects the difficulty and limited progress in stabilizing its business model. deutsche bank targets of returnable equity for four percent for 2019 19, but after the first quarter results, earnings were hit by the week market, we believe that will be difficult to obtain. that means the longer target of 10% is quite far away. isncine: joining us now jonathan tice. still with us christopher .issarides, and andrew sheets
every day there is bad news or an investigation. it must have an impact for the people working with some. jonathan: absolutely. if you had been an employee, it would have evaporated. when will they catch a break, for investors, the bad news is consensus estimates keep coming back and back. hard to say. certainly not until they do something more wholesale and impactful rather than messing around the edges. francine: what does that mean? we are still lacking details. jonathan: it has to be get out of the u.s. properly. fairly,e people who say when you have a balance sheet with that much risk, even that
box cannot be ticked. they need to make the balance sheet easier to understand. francine: why the reluctance to do that? jonathan: because you are a domestic pan-european bank. deutsche said they were the last man standing in europe. management has changed, they did make a run for their own bank. they need to contend with commerzbank, it is very popular. is deutsche bank popular? it is a smaller bank. deutsche bank is still big in germany. we need pan-european focus. lost a long time ago. the volatility in trading, margins only go one way.
move that way. francine: what happens to the chief executive? will we hear from him in the next few months? jonathan: i think about barclays' jenkins. wholesale banking problem. if he does not say we need to change the game, he is not the right man for the job. if that is not the story, he is not the right guy for the job. in general, how much does this have to do with the ecb? , even ifhese banks they do a better job focusing on the business model, are catching a break. shows thathink it there are side effects of negative rates and low rates. the nonfinancial
sectors, but the financial sector profitability is impaired by where rates are broadly. interestingks to an aspect of this rally we have had your to date. ands led by defenses quality stocks, not by cyclicals or financials, not the things that usually signal a stronger and longer running bull market. that is a risk over the summer, if we think about what is leading this market higher, not just europe but everywhere, that is a sign things are not as good as the headline numbers would suggest. francine: thank you all. we will get back to christopher pissarides and andrew sheets. ask -- at the inside
information or the nature of my job. i cannot say i am authorized by government to release the information. >> it is fair to say officials will be passing you information and tips in the knowledge that you are likely to tweet about them. >> to be honest, i do not know. the officials have a tacit understanding. i have access to information, some of them know i would publicize the information. >> chinese officials are talking up the economy, but that economic data shows continuing slowdown in the chinese economy. our officials exaggerating the potential for china to whether the trade storm -- weather the trade storm. >> the losses bearable for china. does notlieve it matter to have some losses.
the chinese economy is still growing, we do not have negative growth. we are advancing. the size of our growth is remarkable in the world. >> if trump goes ahead with additional tariffs on all of chinese exports to the u.s., what levers or tools to policymakers have to reach for in terms of retaliation? china may target the u.s. services sector operating here. trade and services is not the same as trade and goods, the u.s. has barely talked about services. china knows this is a fast-growing for the american side. that was tom mackenzie in beijing. telecoms, wer, spoke about the new technology where it competes directly with huawei.
it is difficult to tell if america's blacklisting of huawei is a positive or negative. .> it is early to call it there is some uncertainty and unpredictability as to how this will unfold. we have been thoughtful about, if you are a customer who wants player, howyour 4g will you deal with it? we have alternatives were you do not have to delay your rollout. we are focusing on the customers. >> the argument made by deutsche telekom that they are in bed with huawei and the rollout of 5g is not correct? >> i do not think on the european level there will be delays. onhink there might be delays not being available, or the economics not making sense for a
particular operator. we have four technical solutions. they are all doable. about through the u.s.-china trade tensions we will see two different technology focuses ending up eating built? thatays of delivering 5g will be incompatible. do you think that is a risk? >> no. >> what is the key risk when it comes to security? is a relevant realistic risk? >> the concern people are expressing, it will be critical to infrastructure. security will be there no matter what, it has to be there. where is the intelligence in the network? is it in the core network, at the edge, throughout the network ? it will be throughout the network because there is no one
place for intelligence to fit. francine: that was nokia's executive speaking with caroline hyde. with me is christopher pissarides, and andrew sheets. i want to go back to artificial intelligence and transformation societies will go through. our politicians ready for it? christopher: i would not say so, no. technology,hasizing but when you look at the impact it is having on the labor market and jobs in particular, they are not ready to prepare labor markets for the job creation needed in other sectors to take on the work they will inevitably and artificials intelligence. francine: are we overestimating
or underestimating the impact artificial intelligence will have a next five to 10 years? christopher: the disruption has already started. with housesg it full of robots. we are overemphasizing the impact they will have come on the disruption impact, but at the same time there will be a disruption impact, and we are not preparing ourselves for what we will get. it will not be massive, but many workers, 15% of labor pulls will need to make a transition over the next 10 to 15 years. whatetely unrelated to they are doing now, and we are not prepared for the future of , where jobs will be, and
how we will train workers to make the transition. how we should adjust our educational system beginning to preparechool people for new jobs. we are studying applications for things happening, it is not really happening. francine: how does this translate? this is there even needs to be looked at because it could disrupt the way we live and work , especially people who are displaced. with what you do in your folio management -- portfolio management. andrew: when i think about how much change will occur, if you look at the way interest rates are pricing, long-term interest rates, the market is not assuming any real uptick in
long-term activity. we have technologies that are wouldtionary, years ago have seemed science-fiction, yet seem increasingly near-term. rates look at long-term in europe or the u.s. or japan, there is no suggestion we are boosting the level of productivity in the long term. that will be in adjusting debate. maybe our technologies are just the next thing, there is always technological change. if anything they are more transformative, i do not think the market from a long-term perspective is expecting that. francine: up to 20 jobs might be creation, given how andrew's perspective can work for the markets, how do central banks need to look at this? christopher: i think central banks should take on a bigger role than what they have now. that would justify inflation and get an inflation target. it comes with more.
central banks should encourage more productive lending by commercial banks. they have found ways of doing it, but they have to look into this isgoing, because taking place over several years, 10 to 15. we also have the carbon policies at the same time. i do not think we are prepared for that. 90% of the lending up to what banks do is in the financial sector, it is not leading the financial sector. they have to take into account the impact these are having on inequality, which is being
reinforced with surprises. wages keep falling. prices keep going up. central banks have a bigger role to play in the society we live in. francine: we will talk more about central banks, and if this is a way to go around it. we will be back with christopher pissarides, and andrew sheets. we will carry on our conversations with the guests, and latest business headlines next. this is bloomberg. ♪
francine: economics, finance, politics. this is "bloomberg surveillance ." i am francine lacqua. still with us are christopher pissarides and andrew sheets. we are talking about foructivity challenges central banks. people say we should look at the economy differently. how should central banks adapt?
andrew: i think it is hard he cares -- it is hard because there is a focus because inflation is low, we are succeeding. in some ways inflation has been stuck in a low range for a long time. people forget in the late 1990's, it was well below 2%. if you focus too much on the inflation side and ignore other imbalances in the economy, things that can create risks. that could be crucial going into this fmo see meeting. willie focus on data or concerns? financial conditions are at the easiest levels. that question about stability will be at the forefront. francine: how should we look at productivity today? the model seems broken.
you would expect it to be better. before, look what is happening in the world of technology and capital investment, you would expect it to grow more. this same thing happened in the early 1990's when computers were coming. i am not too concerned about productivity. , i worryre we are about wages. between low wages and low skill wages and high skill wages, which is growing. int might bring problems
terms of incentives, what jobs you have. societies do not function well when the labor force is not seem to be behaving in the formative years. the economy is growing, you .xpect improvement we are not seeing that now. decoupling to be a from productivity and wage growth. francine: will that change because of new technologies? or are we stuck? christopher: i do not see change. to take action. it is not going to be easy action.
francine: thank you both. we will get you back on and talk about germany. christopher pissarides, professor of economics, and andrew sheets from morgan stanley.

with guatemala. francine: we will delve deeper into the shift, but first let's get to first word news. >> a record number of conservatives are in the race to replace theresa may. 10 of them will fight each other to lead the party and the country. they agree the u.k. has to leave the european union, but there are few specifics. on the first day of campaigning, the rivals turned their fire on boris johnson, the front runner. the u.s. is considering more sanctions on iran. the next move would be aimed at iranian financial body used for humanitarian trade with europe. that could cut the economic lifeline the u.k. set up for iran. president trump is asking a democrats fromt
gaining access to his financial records. they argue that lawmakers have no legitimate reason to see them. a judge ruled they could get the records going back to 2011. in manhattan, the helicopter pilot warned he had a problem moments before he crash landed on a high-rise building. he was killed in the crash. the helicopter was owned by a company linked to american continental properties. global news, 24 hours a day on air and at tic-toc on twitter, powered by 2700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. this is bloomberg. tom: thank you so much. equities, commodities, surprise, i only have one chart, the first truly quiet day in asia, futures up 10. the bull market continues. not nirvana, but

or higher on $300 billion of chinese goods. if xi jinping does not meet him at the g20. he said he is confident xi will show up. always great to speak to you. overall, will president xi show up to meet with president trump? john: the chinese are playing their cards close to their chest. after what president trump said, the china minted -- chinese ministry said they would like to set up a meeting. when they have something to announce they will tell them. francine: what does that mean if you are a market participant? will the chinese by hardball? wants athink everybody deal. the chinese find it difficult when back into a corner to give in.
if president trump is saying, if i do not get a xi meeting, i will raise tariffs. that makes it more difficult for the chinese to agree. but i think eventually they will meet. tom: coming to the end of the month, every world leader plays to the home audience. who does president xi play to? does he play to the politburo or the communist party? does he play to the mayor of shanghai? who does he play too? john: i think very important are the bureaucrats in the government. the politburo for sure, but just as important is the broader communist party. he needs to make sure the people who might be in the firing line and take the pain from an extended trade war know they will go into something good for the country. tom: can they withstand a reduction in gdp? you have the work issue with inflation there, can the
government going into g20 -- how much of a drop in gdp can they stand? percentage point in terms of gdp growth. the government has said they have enough levers to make sure it does not cause too much of a disruption. in terms of the political system, they have a lot of things to do, banks can lend more. they announced new rules allowing local governments to projects.ales to fund they have a lot of things they can do. francine: yesterday we heard the chinese central bank is moving to shore up of the yuan, but also planned on sale in hong kong. what does it tell us about the intention of the pboc? john: i think the central bank
governor told us late last week that no one number is more important than another. they are not worried about going below seven, but they do not want to see a rapid destabilizing decline in the currency. they want things to be smooth. ist of the stronger fixing guidance in play. francine: thank you john liu, editor for greater china. always great to have you. richard f. lacaille, exec vp/global chief investment officer, state street global advisors. longer-term view that this will have ups and downs, or do you follow to see if there is a resolution russia mark -- if there is a resolution? has a stronga
motivation to meet, but the position they have been hemmed into with trump's rhetoric makes that difficult. g20,y not happen at the but there are strong motivations on both sides. francine: are we ever going to get a deal? is this about trade or something else? if it is a bigger question on technology, it will not be resolved by september. richard: no, there will be several chapters. the security and technology issues become more complex. on intellectual property, china has a strong incentive to get that right. has a stronger system. in the last 48 hours we are getting the first indication of china adapting trade threats by exporting business to vietnam to do business with the united
states. how big is this to adjacent nations? richard: i do not think that is a positive thing. lowest end exports, they were migrating to bangladesh and elsewhere. it for the higher end activities, you look at the bulk complexts, they are high end activities. i do not think neighboring countries have the capacity to take what china needs to export. tom: how do you change or allocation in asia in the last month? what is the new adjustment? overweight have been in market equities. europe is beginning to look more attractive, not because the fundamentals are improving, but it is becoming relatively cheap. moment, by implication,
we are expecting resolution. francine: a resolution? richard: between the u.s. and china, as a first step. francine: if you look at the foreign policy of the u.s. and how trump has treated mexico, getonizing tariffs to something on foreign policy, will we see this every couple of months with new countries? richard: entangling security issues with trade is unfortunate. the huawei confusion around trade is a little bit of a wild card. when you step back, these are temporary noise issues. china, immigration, other things that have come and gone. we should not be swayed by these transitory issues. tom: i want to touch on your research and sustained earnings growth. richard f. lacaille, exec vp/global chief investment officer, state street global
lacaille, exec vp/global chief investment officer, state street global advisors, and jim reid, managing director/global head fundamental credit strategy, deutsche bank is also with us. if you look at this, 10 candidates, they are campaigning. it seems like everyone is saying they are ready to walk away from the eu. is that your assessment? -- all 10 areid saying they want to get brexit done. they say they will see it through, the question is how. we have not heard how they will get past what theresa may failed to do, get brussels to renegotiate part of brexit, then the u.k. parliament to vote for whatever they come up with. far, there is no evidence how a leader will find a way through. francine: is there anyone who can bring parliament together?
theresa may was criticized for not having the skills to bring people from the labour party to her side to vote for this deal. >> part of the criticism for theresa may as she tended to consult with a small group, and a new leader might be more open to talking. theresa may did open talks with the labour party but those went nowhere. perhaps a new leader might be in the hard brexit camp. center, and he may get a more polarizing leader in a parliament a lot of lawmakers prefer a soft brexit, and some do not want brexit at all. you could find it is more complicated. tom: how far our conservative leaders from the voters, the electorate? thing,d: the interesting someone like boris johnson is

be a trade deal with china. i think it gets worse in the summer, and rate cuts will be priced in, but i do not think it will happen. francine: where do you see the fed going? richard: this precautionary measure might be premature. saying am an outlier there could be events that would cause the fed to keep on hold. ,eep in mind, if they do cut they have to be data driven. if you do the deal and the economy picks up, will you start hiking? you have low unemployment and no sign of inflation whatsoever. you are late cycle. could you raise rates after you cut them? very hard. francine: could you raise rates into a recession? how quickly do you see a recession coming? the trade wars get substantially worse, it does
not seem like we are in recessionary territory. if you look at the consumer momentum, sentiment is very strong. that accounts for a large percentage of the u.s. economy. jobs data was disappointing. trade,are nervous about but we are not in recessionary territory, and yet we are treating the yield curve as if we are. francine: we will have more on that. richard f. lacaille, exec vp/global chief investment officer, state street global advisors and jim reid, exec vp/global chief investment officer, state street global advisors managing director/global head fundamental credit strategy, deutsche bank stay with us. this is bloomberg. ♪

perhapswe start from slightly different experience, different starting points. there is more huawei on the u.s., in europe than the and that has been the case for a number of years. member states have quite a lot of experience working with huawei, and we start with a different perspective on trade. europeans collectively stand for open markets and fair trade as long as you stick to the rules and follow them, so it is difficult for us to mix national security and trade policy, and difficult for us to reach for anything that looks like a blanket ban. with those starting points, i don't know where we will reach in terms of a conclusion. we started a process in europe where we will work together to analyze the risks collectively for all the european countries,
look at the possible measures that can be taken to mitigate those risks, and at the end of the process we will reach a conclusion. we have said we do not rule out at the end of the process that some products, some services, some suppliers might be deemed to be unsafe. maria: at this point, there is no evidence that would suggest that this company operates on behalf of the chinese authorities and there is no risk of spying. you can sign and anti-spying ingredient -- agreement. is there anything you are seeing? the memberulian: states that work on cybersecurity are going through a process, looking at technological risks, how secure is the stuff? are there technical risks we need to look at that might or
might not be possible to be mitigated? they will also have a look at the legal framework, not just for china but for any third country supplier. what is the legal framework they operate in and does that give rise to concerns? i do not want to prejudice their work or predict what they will come out with, but in the case of china there is a legal framework, six or seven bits of legislation that say you have to cooperate with the intelligence. that will be one of the factors taken into consideration. maria: you said you have to keep trade and security second, but --sident trump said separate, but president trump said huawei -- julian: that hasn't happened yet. i want us to go through this process which we are doing in full transparency with our
american friends and partners, and the chinese, to look at what the real risk is for all of the countries across europe. what is done in one country affects other countries. to look at whether there are particular risks, and what measures we could imagine to mitigate those risks, recognizing that at the end of the process there may be some risks that are difficult to manage. much will that cost the european consumer? julian: we have to be realistic. to put security at the heart of decision-making on this key technology. 4g, it was primarily about cost and price. now we are saying because it is such a central technology that we also have to take account of security in these decisions.
it does not mean that it is cost free. we will have to have a discussion about economic fallout. there are reports that it would cost a great deal more if you excluded all of chinese tech, and make rollout much slower. those are factors that will be taken into consideration. maria: do you think if european governments are aware of this, there will be a price to pay? julian: that is why we are having this discussion. all the member states have been represented and have bought into it. i don't think there is any lack of awareness. indeed, the u.s. administration have made sure everybody is very aware of the importance of the subject. maria: i have to ask you a question about brexit. you know how the institutions work. potentialee or hear
prime minister candidates come out and say, i may not pay the divorce bill, is that a credible ?hreat or is it a bluff the europeans have seen this for a long time now? julian: you are probably asking the wrong person. i have a colleague, michel barnier, who does the negotiations. i think europe is quite good at doing negotiations. he will continue this process and it will try to reach a conclusion for the e.u. 27 and the u.k. on security matters, it is important that we reach a conclusion because the threats and challenges we are talking ,bout, the challenge of 5g threats of terrorism and other cyber threats are best tackled when we work together. maria: can you do that when there is no deal? julian: we will try to find the best way to maintain the closest
security, because those trying to do us harm are not necessarily targeting one country or another, but our values that are shared. maria: thank you very much. that was julian king, e.u. commissioner for security in the european union. he said the relationship between the u.k. and e.u. should be very close when it comes to security. francine: we will delve deeper into the wall way security concerns -- while way security concerns. securityway -- huawai concerns. this is bloomberg. ♪

i have been taking my babel lessons. i can pronounce cappuccino. are we seeing global disinflation and japanification in cappuccino prices? jim: not according to starbucks. if we think about what japan means for the rest of the world, japan hit its bubble 25 years ago in a different environment from today. although the demographics are the same in europe as japan, the world is different today. europe might be lucky to have a job at the japan type outcome. japan had 1% per capita gdp growth over the last 25 years and europe might struggle to do that. francine: tom gets full marks for pronouncing cappuccino. what do you do about productivity in europe? --: my personal view it is
is it is a legacy of too much debt. the authorities have understandably refused to tackle that debt and keeping that in the system must keep an inefficient allocation of resources. if you are not prepared to let the debt default, you probably have to reflate your way out of debt and get a different size relative to the economy, and maybe productivity can rebound. francine: we keep saying the ecb probably has the toughest job. they are running out of ammunition and it will be difficult to use unconventional tools, but what will happen? i understand the point that there is uncertainty about leadership and that will take a while to bed down. there is some room for flexibility on the downside.

now, the power gets taken away from labor if you have scale with only one or two players. bruce: i would not connect that specifically to technology. do with regulatory policy and natural forces. one of the misconceptions is that we are seeing technology substitute away from labor. tom: you don't buy that idea? bruce: the data is saying the opposite. job growth is slowing now but that is because demand has weakened. part of the week potential growth is that technology is not adding as much as it was 15 or 20 years ago. francine: how do you look at the inverted yield curve? that old question. bruce: a piece of this, we have to understand the structural changes on the long end of the curve that are not related to
the business cycle. if you look at the way the curve has been pricing the fed, the intensification of the inversion over the last few months, there is a change in sentiment that reflects markets believing there is a greater risk of recession. i do not think we will go into a recession, but it is right that we increased the tail risk and the fixed income markets are reflecting that. francine: anything else you would look out for a sharp downturn in the u.s. economy? you say it will slow down around 1% but nothing recessionary. is there a signal markets and economists should be paying attention to? bruce: i don't think there is any lead indicators. it is watching whether the drag working through the business economy on spending, how much this will change business behavior so credit conditions
tighten? last friday's payroll report was a weakening number, but there is a balance that gives softness and not a recession. your gdp two months forward? bruce: for the u.s. for the next four quarters, we have growth averaging about 1.5. tom: there has got to be a political response. i have never seen you this gloomy. bruce: i am not gloomy. we are going through a phase where we have to recognize there is a conference -- consequence in terms of the business sector. it will deliver softness in the u.s., but we will make it through and if we are not in recession over the next 69 six yo ne will have -- -- months, we will have

china, that is not feasible. usually at this point in the cycle, fiscal policy is tightening and we have a modest ease, not enough to give you anything like a rescue, but there is easing and fiscal policy in the u.s., germany, western europe. japan is the one exception. tom: let's come back, bruce kasman with us, with jp morgan, their chief economist. it will be most interesting to see where this fiscal debate goes. francine: it is most interesting to see. a deutsche's downgrade. troubles are worsening after fitch downgraded its credit rating. this is bloomberg. ♪

as you mentioned, we don't know what is on the balance sheet. if that is the case, what are the regulators waiting for? jonathan: i think the issue for the regulators is this is systematic. one of the reasons the deal did not make sense as you put together a systemically important bank with another bank, we have new rules in europe, suddenly you have a more important bank. it's risk weightings, the amount of capital it would need would go up. experienced so about this, let me cut to the chase. as deutsche bank, and other banks, are they heading to a good bank/back bank -- bad bank structure where the regulators work it out? jonathan: the deutsche bank issue is not the same as it is
