10:01 pm
upside again in correlation to the yen, which is relatively weaker than it has been of late. hang tank -- hang seng, 8/10 of 1%, a flat end of the session thursday, the nx x -- the nsx 200 is up. let's take a look. positivity with trade talks slated for october, some sort of clarity anyway. now, the bond rally coming to a halt. this is what we have, 10 basis points to the upside the 10 year yield on the aussie, big yield on that -- a big move on that one. we have brexit and boris johnson's brother resigning from the government and the party, actually. and that again, throwing more down from his strategy once again, taking us further away from a hard exit. as a result we have seen sterling climbing about 3% in three days, down a fraction at a -- $1.23.e dollar 23 in this has to do with more

10:03 pm
saturday, that is tomorrow. one source says it is unlikely the unrest will continue. have a listen. >> even if you meet some of the demands from the protesters, would that be enough to pacify the crowd and then all the protests would stop? that would remain to be seen. i doubt that, because from the opposition members over these two days, they came out to say all five demands must be satisfied. and there is no sign of concession. rishaad: our next guest has championed china, steve, take it away.
10:04 pm
steve: we are at a pivotal time in the protest movement in hong kong as we also approach the critical national holiday in china and three weeks. many directions this movement could take, it depends a lot on what beijing says and what carrie lam in the hong kong government does. but we already heard protesters will continue that fight for their other fort a man's. who hast is jimmy lai, kindly open the doors of his home in kowloon. thank you, jimmy. why did carrie lam's gesture of finally withdrawing the bill not pattison -- not pacify the voters -- not pacify the protesters? jimmy: because so much damage has been done over the weeks. and every time we demonstrate, we realize what the government intention is, it is to
10:05 pm
sequentially take away our rule of law. governmente local intention, or beijing intention? carrie lam has become a puppet. i don't think she is making any decisions. because is why, beijing, they see through the whole thing through a prism of their own value, their dictator way of controlling everything, that they won't understand what our aspiration is. and they don't care. we are just an abstraction for them. >> why would they do that? they get control of 50 years of it, and it will lapse anyway and 24/7. jimmy: 2047 is 25 years away. they can't wait. they want what we have.
10:06 pm
us as subservient to them, totally. >> could we have avoided the mayhem of the last two or three months of carrie lam have it -- carrie lam had simply withdrawn the bill in june? absolutely. if she went out and withdrew it, nothing would've happened in the past three months. we in these three months, realized that unless we have reverse off a suffrage, we will always have constant encroachment on our freedom. and this is why this is the war of last straw that we must continue our movement until we get the assurance of universal suffrage. >> do you believe carrie lam when she says this gesture to withdraw the bill officially will ally many of the concerns of protesters? others in the protest cap say it
10:07 pm
is more of a ploy -- protest -- itay it is a more of is more of a ploy to say, i have acquiesced or demands, and if there are more protests, that would give the government justification at a minimum to clampdown on civil liberties? jimmy: i think the latter is more realistic, but i don't think they will come up with emergency law, just because the emergency law cannot stop the internet information, and they can't stop commercial and financial information into action. the means they can't stop information, so they can't stop people from organizing the power of resistance through the internet. if people still can organize their power through the internet, there will be resistance. media run a powerful
10:08 pm
digital platform. have you seen any indications the government is testing closing down the? internet or publications? -- internet arpa -- closing down the internet or publications? >> now. so the emerge -- no. here, theyd the poa have to risk world sanctions against china because china is not in appreciation. the economy is sliding, xi jinping concentrated power on himself. the internal power struggle in the party is very clear, because you offend a lot of those members by the anticorruption campaign. and this trade war is going on
10:09 pm
with the u.s., so many things putting china in a very crisis mode. i don't think they dare to risk world sanctions. >> you have been attacked by chinese media many times over the years. what do you make of the latest attack, where you have been named one of the gang of four along with others? you have been called a u.s. stooge, a tray tour -- a traitor to the enough -- to the chinese nation. are you a traitor? jimmy: i consider that a badge of honor, because we are fighting for freedom of the people. me,n't care what they call and whatever they want to intimidate me, i am not going to be subdued by fear.
10:10 pm
beeno long i have determined not to think about fear and let fear frighten me. because i would not be able to do anything. >> who is blamed for throwing a petrol bomb at your house two nights ago? jimmy: i don't think the chinese directed. gangsters,k some they got some money from some rich chinese merchants or whatever to do this stupid thing. it is a small nuisance i am used to, so it is just a nuisance. it happenedw that that 1:25 in the morning. i got up in the morning on my colleague said something happened, so it is nothing, nothing big. the u.s. has talked a lot
10:11 pm
about the black hand of foreigners interfering in hong kong affairs, whether it is the united states or possibly taiwan. has the united states at all supported you in your efforts to bring democracy to hong kong? they had was just moral support. this is a foreign inference, but they have to show evidence. there is not a shred of evidence that a foreign country is mobilizing this demonstration or resistance. all the people know that this is a lie. plae talked about the threat. what about the threat companies like cathay pacific are facing, where they are forced to to the party line? is that a bigger threat to the hands-off, low-tax, free commerce environment hong kong enjoys? this is a big threat. it is as much of a threat as china taking away our rule of

law. [indiscernible] no [indiscernible] minds,trol their staffs their actions, what they say, what they do in their private time and space. >> but they can control it by firing, and that is what we have seen with some companies. are a lot ofere companies moving out of china. because companies don't have the right to do this. they cannot operate with this kind of acting for china. they cannot do that. staff to move a certain way, think a certain way, do certain things, this is not the best in culture. that is why whatever the chinese government does must be wrong,
10:13 pm
because they see it through the prism of their own value, ignoring the free world, the free world is so different. >> jimmy, thank you for having me in your home. you,ll send it back to more of our exclusive conversation with jimmy lai will be coming up in the next month or so, as we have a special show on the chaos gripping hong kong. you.e: steve, thank great conversation. let's go to first world news, su keenan is in new york. we start with the federal reserve, which says uncertainty around trade policy is holding back global growth, and may drag into 2020. conflicts theade first half of last year accounts for a declining global gdp of 8/10 of 1% in the first six months of the year and adds that, had trade tensions not

10:19 pm
aisha: it is, indeed. the low-growth uncertainty environment is very favorable for us, we focus on quality companies on growth in the region. these companies, we try to look through the cycle, i.e. looking for structural growth, something that has a strong management team to whether these uncertain weather these uncertain times. although the market seems volatile at times, we as a team -- yvonne: i'm wondering what you make of the move in the bond markets overnight. everyone thought it was one direction and would get lower. how much support can equity markets expect from the decline in interest rates, now that we see repricing? i would have to refer to my bond specialist.
10:20 pm
but what we are seeing across the region, given the low-growth environment, is that a lot of governments are responding with fiscal stimulus. for example, in places like korea we expect a general election next year, so we expect some fiscal policies to be announced there. the india government is working with their central bank, so we are seeing a lot of responses from the governments, which is encouraging for the equities market. david: downward revisions and earnings are likely to continue. you look past that before all these things taken? : our internal earnings model looks at five-year returns. this is something we are aware of. but we do look through those cyclicals. so is it about preservation or accumulation not the moment? because you have outperformed, and with volatility we have
10:21 pm
seen, are people running scared? are you saying redemptions? aisha: for our funds, fortunately we haven't seen much redemption and we are starting to see some new funds being deployed in our region. so that is quite encouraging. rishaad: the question is, what are you seeing down the road? road, it isthe encouraging to see government responses to this environment, with whatever power they have. at the same time, we can't forget that asia, the region as a whole, still has plenty of growth. seeing countries are cyclicals at the moment, but we shouldn't get too beaten up by that. that structural growth is still there, management teams we back are still executing very well, so we don't see -- i wouldn't say we
10:22 pm
are very positive, but we are very, very constructive [laughter] going forward. yvonne: your top five holdings, chipmakers semi-are one of your tops now. we have a chart of apple supply chain stocks here, semiconductors, and the valuations on these things have basically now doubled the price of apple itself. i know this is one of the risks you look at, valuations on these growth stocks. is it getting too expensive? at what point do you rotate? --ha: we are very aware big very aware of valuations. where we see some faults, for example, in markets now we are seeing the winners be bid up quite aggressively, not just in tech, but for example chinese a lot of theses,
10:23 pm
outperformed quite aggressively and we see a lot of rewriting contributing to that price -- re-rating contributing to that price movement. maybe it is time to take money off the table and cycle it into underperformers. david: india, what is happening, are you worried? aisha: india does worry us. post elections we did expect some government stimulus to reignite the growth of the economy. but what has overshadowed that is the credit crunch issue in the financial sector, and even in the public sector, banking sector. announced tohave merge the public sector banks, so that is one step. what is positive is that the government and central bank are working very tightly together, so we can expect more measures to contain the banking sector problems. rishaad: great having on the program, thank you very much.

beijing to engage in discussions that follow the rule of law, but did decline an invitation from protesters to meet them in person. for more on the implications of the trade war, our next guest is ryand port founder and ceo peterson. flexed port ships by air, ocean, rail and truck and helps companies manage supply trains. your customers have been dealing with tariffs were more than a year -- tariffs for more than a year. how are they reacting to the latest escalations? it is difficult to be a u.s. importer. you see your costs going up dramatically. 60% of our customers are impacted by the tariffs already, and it is not a small impact. these are not high-margin software businesses. these are companies buying products and selling them with a small markup. so a big impact their drives decision making. so you are seeing a lot of desire to shift manufacturing.
10:33 pm
nine out of 10 customers i have talked to personally have either already shifted or are underway shifting volumes, shipping, manufacturing, largely to southeast asia but anywhere in the world that is not affected by the trade war. selina: in terms of productions being shifted at of china, how many were already planned as labor costs get more expensive in china? we were seeing a shift ahead of the trade war moving into southeast asia, vietnam, et cetera. how many were planned versus the trade war pushing them over the edge? ryan: that is the right question. this is an ongoing trend. especially for products where there is not a lot of complexity, and ecosystem of subcomponents like electronics that are a little bit slower to move. apparel is one where a lot of volumes were shifting, but it has accelerated for sure. you will see more and more. and the fact that some of the more complex things are starting to shift to vietnam, darting to shift, we are seeing 20 x volume
10:34 pm
growth for flexed port out of philippines next year, for example, remarkable for us. 20 x is crazy out of a single country. david.ryan, this is i'm from the philippines. i'm curious, is that 20 x number because you guys opened a business there? is that new or is that an acceleration of the shift out of china? isn: certainly some of that a reflection of our smaller size in that market. but really, we are not going anywhere near that in southeast asia. we see it in indonesia and a bunch of other markets, that really fast acceleration. grown 40%s year-over-year in export volumes, manufacturing, it is unprecedented. porte: you launched flexed capital to help provide financing to your comps -- to your companies. how make -- how many customers
10:35 pm
are coming to you because profits are squeezed by tariffs? ryan: since january 2018, tariffs as a percentage of total product value, and this is the purchase price of the goods, has tripled for our customers, which is a huge impact. that is not insignificant for companies that need to finance these goods, by them, and then they may sell them a month or several months later before they actually get paid for them. so that is a big gap in working capital they need to finance. so we are seeing a lot of growth in our flexed port capital product where we provide loans to companies to provide inventory. we do that with confidence be because we know the companies we have in the products in their possession. it is definitely growing fast. that business has tripled year-over-year for us. selina: arguably one of the bigger drags on business, in addition to pure costs of the tariffs, is all the uncertainty, not knowing if you should shift apply chains, make other
10:36 pm
changes, based on a tweet from the president. how do you think pure uncertainty is dragging on business investment, hiring decisions? ryan: it is a high degree of friction in decision-making. and it is really hard to make decisions in a situation of ambiguity. i empathize with them completely. if you don't know if there is going to be a deal, you don't know if the president is going to get reelected, so supply chains take years to redevelop and reposition. it sounds easy to go to vietnam, but that means finding a new factory you trust, that can make your product at quality and scale. so it is really hard to make decisions in that environment. i admire the people doing it. some of them quite boldly, some of them saying we are going to ride it out. either way, a difficult decision to make. thene: we are watching political situation very closely in hong kong. company lease outset are at a docking space near the shin jen

particularly, as that produces a greater squeeze rishaad: -- a greater squeeze. . we have large deficits. so the amount of promises we have our large, but they are going to be coming at us at a more gradual pace, and i think that is going to produce a squeeze. i think related to that, what is important is that when you don't have monetary policy being able to be effective, what kind of monetary policy will we have? we will have more than likely a lot of debt monetization. yvonne: that was bridgewater associates cochairman ray dalio speaking with david rubenstein. for more on the u.s. economic outlook, don't miss bloomberg coverage of the u.s. payroll job number coming out later today, we have type white house economic aid larry kudlow -- white house economic aide larry
