12:02 pm
television around the world. let's start with a day by day look at the top headlines. deutsche bank announced a dramatic overhaul of its global operations in the struggling lender's latest attempt at a turnaround. david: a banking bombshell. deutsche bank planning to cut 20% of its workforce. that is 18,000 people. shutting down its equity sales and trading business. guy: the losses are already starting. the ceo was in london to brief reporters. i suspect many of the cuts will come in london and many in the united rates as well. the focus is about refocusing this business back on the german side of what is happening to become a corporate bank, less of an investment bank. so if focus on the c rather than the ib in the cib. vonnie: is this enough?
12:03 pm
what is the reaction of there? >> it is quite dramatic, 18,000 jobs, the biggest restructuring seeing even after for others. the problem is there is a lot of risk and it is not only going to be a costly restructuring, how is deutsche bank going to find enough revenue growth to offset the restructuring. they want to keep private wealth, they want to keep asset management. all those areas are very competitive. turning around all of this is while balancing cut is something that is still a question mark. rishaad: that should back american deposits tumbling in new york, 6.1% down, if all of five print 9% in the primary market in frankfurt. some investors are celebrating the move, like douglas brownstein, who owns 3% of the lender. >> what christian is taking the bank back to his its 150-year-old history of being one of the world's best commercial banks.
12:04 pm
it is consistent, stable. it is a little worrying but as an investor, that is an exciting place to be. >> deutsche bank's restructuring lan is so far looking like a bust the markets. execution risk seems higher-than-expected according to this analyst, leaving little room for error. what do markets need to see to them responding well? >> i think the big issue is capital. it will be 2020 before things start to turn on that front. so i think patience is required for investors involved in this stock. i think for new investors, perhaps it might ease taking a wait-and-see approach. day one of the humphrey hawkins testimony today before the house and financial services committee. fed chair powell answered questions for about three hours. >> the bottom line for me is
12:05 pm
that the uncertainties around global growth and trade continue inweigh on the outlook, addition, inflation continues to be muted and those issues are still in place iliad >> he went into the hearing with the markets pricing in a rate cut at the end of the month and he did nothing to disabuse them of that notion. many times during the hearing, he talked about how well the economy has been doing, and the crosscurrents that could depress growth in the future, including trade, which he said was the responsibility of the administration, not the fed. he didn't say whether it was good or bad, the trade wars, just that it would have an effect on the economy. he leaves with wall street believing they will get a rate cut, but did not give clues of the timing or the amount. >> it is priced for a 25 point basis cut. even pricing in a look at was right, there is a choice now the fed has.
12:06 pm
not that they will pause at all. i think the big surprise at this point would really be if they did nothing. [bell ringing] >> i think the market is internally driven by what is happening in policy. just kicking the can down the road on when the earnings trough is going to come. there was a lot of earnings confusion, no earnings component to this, instead, it is all a bit about policy elevating valuations. valuations will keep elevated will depend on the recovery stream showing up. >> after two days of testimony to congress, jay powell message 's message is clear -- the old laws governing inflation appear to have been broken with big implications for policymakers as they consider a rate cut as soon as this month. an unexpected jump in consumer prices caused something of a stir in the bond market. what is your reading? >> it's interesting to see that
12:07 pm
30-year bond auction -- you might have thought it went off without a hitch. in fact, the gap between what people thought the price would be at auction for the bonds, the yield coming in much higher, the price much lower -- it is no coincidence perhaps that this comes after the core cpi came in much stronger than expected. such --as very fairly dovish in two days of testimony. they are looking for a second cut later in the year, but it is definitely giving investors perhaps a little pause to wonder if the level of yields right now is appropriate, given the fact that the fed is so dovish, and maybe inflation could be getting a little more wide. >> president trump renewing his attack on china just as beijing talks get back on track and as beijing prepares to release trade figures. he is complaining that china has enlisted which is his of
12:08 pm
american farm products, a promise he says was secured in with president xi jinping. >> out of the meeting, we didn't really get a lot of details. what was good for the u.s. side was that china apparently agreed to buy more u.s. agricultural goods. but the data shows that chinese agricultural purchases from the u.s. have actually dipped since that meeting. we have trump himself questioning whether china is committed. >> the trade war effects on china were visible in trade data out overnight, with both imports and exports down year-over-year. >> no great surprise, i guess. june.s fell 1.3% in remember, that is the month when mr. trump put through the higher tariffs on chinese goods. there was likely going to be an impact. perhaps the bigger takeaway was on the import side. that points 7.3%, to slowing domestic demand. we have just had imports from
12:09 pm
the u.s., they have fallen by double digits going to china. i think it all adds up to the picture that the export and manufacturing side of china continues to be under pressure and that is why there is so much focus on whether or not these trade talks can reach some kind of resolution. rosalind: still ahead, more fed speak. an exclusive conversation with richmond fed president thomas barkan. plus, insight on why christine lagarde should succeed at the ecb. and up next, more of the weeks top business headlines. greece electing a new prime minister who takes office with a set of ambitious economic goals. 4% annual gdpout growth. essentially, that is double the current rate. rosalind: this is bloomberg.

♪ rosalind: this is "bloomberg best." i am rosalind chin. let's continue our global tour of the week's top business stories. in turkey, the president shocked global financial markets by suddenly ousting the head of the central bank. >> the turkish lir. relivedesident erdogan the nation's central bank governor. he has reported that policymakers support his view. but higher interest rates cause inflation. with this removal out of the blue, where does it leave the person in charge and were does it leave the central bank? >> it leaves the central bank in a tough position, francine. the previous had was probably on
12:16 pm
the cusp of starting an easing cycle. but with this decision to suddenly remove or hold management at the central bank, it has caused some volatility in the lira. it is possible that he might lira mightel -- the weaken to a level that it might be more difficult for the new governor to cut rates, as president erdogan would probably like him to. a new leader has taken over as prime minister in greece, that is after yesterday's election. mandate to strong deliver on my agenda, which is an agenda to grow the economy, to create more jobs, but also to make sure the greek people feel safe again.
12:17 pm
maria: he will tell you, i want to grow this economy aggressively. he talks about 4% annual gdp growth, double the current rate. he wants to cut red tape. he went to attract foreign money, but more crucially, he wants to slash taxes for corporations and the only way he to do that, quite frankly, he needs fiscal space, fiscal leeway, and the only way to do that is to convince the creditors that they need to lower the surplus targets, which currently stand at 3.5% of gdp. get thating he will leeway, but it is not clear by any means. the marketesting, currently really likes the story. the question is how long can the rally go on? anne: u.k. mp's have voted in favor of preventing the next prime minister from forcing through a no-deal brexit. the amendment passed by just one vote.
12:18 pm
>> it is telling us that whoever comes after theresa may will have just as rough a time as theresa may did. parliament saying it will not take kindly if you try to bypass us and surpass us to get brexit done. boris johnson, who is the frontrunner, saying he is keeping that option on the table that he would suspend parliament if need be to get exit done by october 31. he is not started by saying, i went to talk to other parties, talk to parliament to get it done. >> and the way to do that is to get brexit done. >> parliament is that set against no deal and the e.u. hasn't changed, their position remains exactly the same. so the challenge for the new prime minister is to try to work with the same cards that the previous prime minister had, but to play them in a different way. commissionpean issued its most recent projections for european growth
12:19 pm
and inflation, and the news was not good. >> we have downgrades across the the board. they expect the european economy to grow 1% in 2020, a downgrade to react it is minor, the prior expectation was 1.5%. but it feeds into the story we talked about weakness, and of the commission said the strength of the recovery is being put to the test by geopolitics, by trade, and by brexit. the timing is interesting because we are expecting to hear from mario draghi in two weeks and the market has a ready priced in a rate cut to stimulate this economy. f has become the latest chemical maker to sound the alarm on economic weakness. really interesting to see them isthe fact is that basf blaming -- mainly due to trade conflicts -- is one phrase that stands out to me.
12:20 pm
>> widely seen as a bellwether washe global economy, basf actually fairly optimistic about up opportunities this year, till now forecasting is like increase in sales, expecting profits to be slightly better. sales is saying will decrease this year, operating profits will be done as much as 30%, a much bigger downgrade of expectations than analysts were expecting. noting a weakness in industrial production particularly in autos as well, and also difficulties in the american agricultural sector, so really being hit across the board. >> european powers are urging iran to reverse its decision to breach the levels of uranium enrichment under the 2015 nuclear accords. still, the u.k. and the e.u. are stopping short of threatening sanctions. since the sanctions seem to be
12:21 pm
off the table for now from the european side, what actions can brussels take? >> there are two ways to go the diplomatic front at this point. they really are trying to lower the tensions. obviously, things have become more tense with the u.s.. the e.u. and the u.k. are saying, let's take a breather, let's all try to get people to diplomatic talks. of course, that is somewhat difficult given the u.s. position, but france and iran this past weekend said they want to try to schedule some talks by the end of july, which could open up a diplomatic front. so it really is at this point, let's try to talk rather than going further with sanctions. >> hong kong police have arrested five people while dispersing a purchased in one of the city's busiest tourist districts. protesters clashed with riot police sunday night after tens of thousands had marched against the government's
12:22 pm
controversial extradition bill. >> this is different than what we have seen in weeks past. the protesters yesterday wanted to take their message to mainland tourists, so they marched through one of the busiest tourism areas -- shopping areas in hong kong. tens of thousands came out. it was bigger than expected and it really shows the nature of these protests, the momentum that they have and how much they have gone on much longer than people thought they would go. >> carrie lam said that the controversial legislation that prompted millions of people to take to the streets in protest is dead. lam stopped short of saying she would formally withdraw the bill . critics have been quick to jump on that. leads one opposition lawmaker saying, it is too little too late. what would be enough then? >> she would have to withdraw the l, and she doesn't do -- withdraw the bill, and she hasn't done that. the protesters want it withdrawn
12:23 pm
because it is only safeguard to stop another government from reintroducing that bill. that is why the protesters are digging in saying we want to see that bill withdrawn. and it looks like kerry is trying to use a bit of semantics to explain her position to the a position it is that the public finds untenable. yvonne: china's car industry showing signs of recovery with the latest sales advancing for the first time in a year. dealers had been offering deep discounts to clear inventory emissions stricter rules kick in, stoking concern that it will not be easy for the market to sustain. do you see signs that this is the end of the slump? >> i don't think it is the end of the slump. probably a better second half than the first half.
12:24 pm
we saw double-digit negative growth in the first half. ofhink that is a consequence that -- in 2017 -- consequence of the tax cut in 2015 to 2017. i think the second half is getting back to normal. 5% growthe will see in the second half. francine: the account of the ecb june meeting was marked with a broad consensus that policymakers were ready to return to monetary easing policy. that follows a recent toughening of language by mario draghi, saying that if the outlook does not improve, that would be enough to warrant action. do you think christine lagarde changes anything? is she going to push for fiscal monetary policy, and
12:25 pm
if she does, will government actually hear her out? >> she does not change anything from our perception, however if you are starting to price a more the case of in someone else being selected, if that was your baseline, then clearly it is against that. is it not
12:26 pm
12:27 pm
rosalind: you're watching "blumberg best." i am rosalind chin. this week, investors tuned into jerome powell's testimony on capitol hill. but powell was not the only fed official offering first active on monetary policy. in his first since joining the presidentmond's fed spoke exclusively with bloomberg's michael mckee. >> we are watching very carefully what is happening with that data and looking very much at the upside risk and downside risk. at this point, they are a little more tilted to the downside. >> the market has priced in a 100% chance of a rate cut. and you go against the markets? >> we have a lot of time left before the meeting. he will see what happens. retail sales, we will get consumer spending. i am the markets will adjust.

12:29 pm
what is the general feeling about the economy, and where is it going? downey think we are headed or are they just unsure? tom: almost everyone i talked to says this is the longest upturn in my memory, and actually has in, in u.s. recorded history. it has to change at some point. there is concern in your mind that things are close to changing. >> that said, when you talk to them about their own businesses, with very few exceptions, they are doing quite well. >> so the day is good, but they are nervous about tomorrow. rosalind: much more to come on "bloomberg west," including sir richard branson on galactic's upcoming public listing and the deutsche bank's chief financial officer explains how the lender's sweeping plan aims to revive profit growth. plus, christine lagarde is viewed as the right leader at the right time for the ecb. >> she has the experience. >> of having also discussed and

12:34 pm
and is back on a growth trajectory. we see underlying growth in our franchises. we are taking the decision to retrench and step back from elements of our global markets franchise, in particular the equity sales in trading and a significant step in the bank. >> what about german clients? are you still going to be able to [indiscernible] many of our clients and it is the nature of the german economy that is the significant portion of the revenues earned that are international revenues. smes have activity outside of germany. these clients expect us to be present around the world and service their needs. those needs maybe cash management. they may be risk management. they may be fx and those are areas in which we excel and it
12:35 pm
is around those strengths that we reorient the banks. entrenchment in equity affect that? >> one concern we have always andaway from equity sales trading was the franchise impact and a potential that would have on knock on impact and are other businesses. in making the decision we have made, we have had to grasp and we will need to manage through that. we are retaining a target of equity capital markets franchise as well as research in limited distribution in order to continue to serve clients needs around equity financing. the sales and trading decision has been difficult for us. recognizing as you say, they're unlikely to be knock on franchise applications of that decision. brussels, finance ministers approved christine lagarde's nomination to replace mario draghi as president of the

12:41 pm
hence come you have a major correction? >> let's what through that. in 2007, the companies are overrunning abnormally. i do not see that. 2000 you had evaluation issue. bad testld not be a case. you bumble through and made it to the central banks ended up getting dovish but you had probability issues. , ultimately we think the market has caps on the upside by multiple -- you will not getting more multiple expansions. on the downside, you have what i would say is a protective fed as well of the -- as some of its peers in the central banks. ♪
