8:01 am
abramowicz and tom keene. the first full week for america. we welcome all of you to our simulcast, bloomberg radio and bloomberg television. it is merger monday. across the headline from verizon, they will buy track phones from america mobile for $6.25 billion. it is like an afterthought this morning when you look at the frenzy to get out there and by revenue. announced 60 minutes ago, if you have access to these capital markets and many people do, they have the money to go do it. immediate fixed income picture, william gross will join us at the bottom of the hour. we will get an update from the retired one. i want to talk to him about the financial repression. lisa, that is a backdrop to everything we talked about. anybody with yield after inflation is losing. they are falling behind every day. lisa: it is cheaper to borrow
8:02 am
money and invest in anything else because it is so cheap to borrow. that is what is driving a lot of the frenzy. there is a question about how far can the financial repression go. that seems to be the main questions the fed will be faced with this week. what kind of inflation targets will day be looking at? what tools will be be using to get inflation and the jobless rate down? more importantly, how much will we hear about the side effects, the increase in financial prices at the expense of a lack of inflation elsewhere. tom: we welcome you to bloomberg radio and bloomberg television. for those of you on bloomberg radio, lisa abramowicz flashing the red and white. i thought maybe she was going liverpool on us, premier league. but no, there is a team in northern london. lisa: your rival. jonathan: this is amazing. thank you. lisa: any time. 3-0.n

8:04 am
dow futures are up. rest of the the data. on the business of fixed income and what to do right now, as we dive into the autumn, ian lincoln joins us. he writes really piercing, really dense research notes on the state of fixed income. ian, where is the belief right now, where is the opportunity into september and october? ian: well, i think it is an exciting period between now and the end of the year for the fixed income markets as well as for equity. the point was made earlier about buying revenue. i think that is going to be a story. but, there is a problem with that from the fed's perspective. because the fed does not want to see too much consolidation from industries. that is not good for the jobs growth profile. right now, between now and the end of the year, it is all going to be about jobs for the fed and are they willing to deliver more
8:05 am
by the beginning of 2021? we are doubtful, frankly because financial conditions are as easy as they are. probably stuck in arrange for 10 year yields until we are through the election. when that occurs, i think that, if anything, there will be an upward drift rather than a bid into the end of 2020. tom: what is the price ramification of the upward drift? if we go yield, i believe that us price down, how injuro will that be to total return? ian: it could take the edge off some of the upside that treasuries have seen this year. for context, i don't think the equity market can withstand the 10 year yield above 1%. the extent to which rates can increase are capped by the realities of what is going on with the feedback with the equities.
8:06 am
that is still going to be a toid year to belong treasuries given everything that has occurred. jonathan: if equities get hit because yields rise too much, who is capping them? will the federal reserve come in and say hold up, that's too much? so, a material decrease in volities increases equity via the fix. we can say with a straight face that if the selloff in equities that appeared to be starting , we will has continued call it 10 to 15% off the peaks, we would have a different conversation about what the fed is going to do on wednesday. there would be a much higher probability that they would need to deliver something in terms of forward guidance or a change in the qe program. as it stands now, financial
8:07 am
conditions remain easy and the fed has a bit of a pass. jonathan: from 2020 onwards, is there any such thing as a warranted timing in financial conditions for the federal reserve? is there anything like a warranted timing where they sit there and say financial conditions have tightened, that makes sense? i asked then that question to gauge whether they would do something. if they said yes, they would step in and do more. does that? anymore? is it relevant? will behink it relevant at the point in which the global economy has stabilized and we have moved past the pandemic and we start .o see sustainable growth the big question about inflation becometo come back -- even more topical and a
8:08 am
warranted tightening in financial conditions at a period where inflation is starting to accelerate might be something the fed is willing to stand by for. we are talking about several years away and a lot of positive developments would need to occur between now and the point where true demand-side inflation re-into system. fed: is there anything the could do to increase employment in the u.s.? ian: what they have done is set the stage for trying to allow the -- time to allow the employment market to heal. it is the passage of time and the direction of the pandemic that will dictate what happens to the employment market. there has been a lot of dislocations associated with the change in consumption patterns. one of the biggest surprises, at least for me personally, has been how willing businesses are to embrace the work from home
8:09 am
culture, which has clear when frontliner service sector businesses come back, where will they be located and how long will it take employees to find long-term employment again? the: buying time, what are consequences of buying this time given you are seeing the widening divide between the haves and the have-nots in every sphere of markets? the fedpoint is acting counter to their claim? point in which the valuations in equities and risk assets should conceptually be problematic to the fed, because the risk is to the overall stability of the system in the event that we see a crash for corruption. but, the fed has come out and actually said that that is not on their radar at this point. they are content to see and
8:10 am
frankly be responsible for some of these asset bubbles as long as there is good progress being made on the employment front. i think that is the big unknown and that is what makes the balance of this year so pivotal for monetary policy. if we continue to see jobs come back into the system, albeit at a much slower pace than they left, i think that will give the fed the confidence to keep monetary policy incredibly easy without worrying so much about some of the asset inflation that they are creating. jonathan: what a change for chairman powell. ian, great to catch up. tom, you won't forget this one. iron memory walking through manhattan with you a couple of years back to listen to chairman powell. howalked about cycles, and the last few cycles have been disrupted by asset prices and not by inflation. here we are. when he took over that role, any

your interest rate because we don't have them. we are interested in where is growth. jonathan: we are all interested in that. where is the growth? up nine after two weeks of losses on the s&p 500. up a little more than 1%. 118.76.x, euro-dollar range bound over the last seven months going into a fed decision this wednesday. the story this monday morning, the deal flood is immense. tom: we have time for one of eight stories to go. we have to look at the secretary of treasury speaking at the death star right now. he extended the date out on oracle and tiktok? jonathan: september 20 were the words he used in the last couple of moments. many people assumed september 15. they will have a look at what
8:19 am
has been agreed between oracle and tiktok. no idea where this story goes. you can make it up as you go along with the deadline. it could be tomorrow, the 20th or the end of the month. tom: it is important. this is not a deal, it is a partnership or a restructuring, who knows. lisa: i just want to bring up that steve mnuchin said they will review the oracle-tiktok deal this week. i think, tom, it is interesting that oracle shares are lower in premarket trading on this. thanare at less than 6% 9%. the moving target, the uncertainty factor. tom: it was a head scratcher, you heard that here in the recent minutes ago. we look at the head scratcher which has been the u.s. dollar. we are joined by carrie wiseman. that barely describes his .xperience, particularl
8:20 am
is dollar direction about the major currency or is it about everything else -- currency pairs or everything else? >> i think it is about the major currency pairs. when the world does not look that great, the dollar tends to do better and not worse. today, it is doing better against the emerging market currencies. it is doing worse against the developed market currencies. i don't think it is because the market perceives the world as being that great. i just think it is that there are problems in the u.s.. the u.s.y after election, whether it will be a clean election and not a contested or litigated one. europe is finding some unity. they have gotten there resilience and recovery fund going. france proposed a reform and
8:21 am
stimulus package based on getting funds from the rescue package. europe just looks better these days than the u.s.. i think this is the main reason why the u.s. dollar has weakened in the past few months. jonathan: what is the key risk for europe? >> it is what is happening with the u.k. and it is also covid. to speak to the first point, we know that there are now problems with the path toward a smooth brexit. and if we get a failure of these negotiations to come to terms between the e.u. and u.k. by october or the end of the year and the market starts to price at a hard, europe will suffer as well as the sterling. the other risk is covid. we are now seeing a second wave that seems to be pretty intense and not under the control of the authorities. if that gets worse and all of a sudden you have an inflection point where european growth looks a lot worse in the u.s.
8:22 am
because they have gotten over the hump temporarily, those of the main two ones. lisa: where is the balance of risks in your opinion in terms of dollar versus euro? >> it depends on whether you're looking at the short or medium term. the short term might be the next few weeks. as euro may get back with the sterling with concerns about brexit. especiallyoncerns, when you consider this michael to blame of the -- lane -- the lane.ative after the next few weeks and assuming we get some resolution to these brexit concerns, as we approach the u.s. election, the reverse will happen. europe will be concerned about what will happen in the u.s. election and it will strengthen into the years end.
8:23 am
the next fewmpy in weeks before we start to get an uptrend again in the euro. looked at the currency dynamic with fixed income. we have bill gross coming up in a bit. how do we judge currency paired dynamics given that nominal rates are so low and the real rate is negative pretty much everywhere. >> it is the differences between those international ranks that matter. unfortunately we are living in a boring time right now. it looks like the fed will keep rates near the zero balance for potentially the next three years. we will see more on the projection the fed issues this week. that looks like what will happen. as far as the ecb goes, they will keep their rates low as well. although that has been important
8:24 am
in the past, it may not be important anymore. other things may be much more important. geopolitics, relative growth as opposed to the yield spreads. jonathan: a final question from me. in your experience, your time in this industry, can you remember a time where g10 was so heavily influenced by politics? that is a tough one. i would say yes. but you would have to go back to , you know, 40 years, 50 years, 75 years. the reason is because we were in a fixed exchange market before 1973. it was not translated into movement and foreign-exchange trade it is tricky to consider that. i think you could make a case that, in the middle of the 1970's, late 1970's, between the oil crisis, the global recession
8:25 am
and the unstable politics in europe at the time, yes, you would have to go back to that point in time and conceivably things were as grinding as they are now. again, we are talking about 40 years ago. with an: and fx market 70 seal to it. great to catch up. a g10 market with an em feel to it. politics influencing big major currency in a way that maybe it didn't a while ago. tom: there are some really outlandish strong yen calls. people are looking for a big figure move on yen and yet it just does not happen. jonathan: the dollar and yen have been remarkably stable. we have said that many times on bloomberg surveillance. we have had a breakout, the euro-dollar breaking out.

jonathan: from new york and london, this is bloomberg surveillance. from our audience worldwide, live on bloomberg tv and radio. i am jonathan ferro. 60 minutes away from the opening ballot. equity feud -- from the opening bell. the s&p 500 with a bit of rebound. up 1.1%. in the fx market, the euro breakout. the ecb trying and failing to do anything about it. 1.1874 on euro-dollar. in the bond market, a bit of a snooze. the bottom end of the range 50 basis points, the top end around 90. right now it is 66. headlines from airbus. lisa mentioned in the job cuts angle from the airline industry. travelsays "the summer
8:31 am
rebound to not live up to expectations. it is unlikely voluntary departures will cover all shortcuts and their preparing for longer, deeper crisis than previously seen." it is not a return to normal in that industry. tom: this is the debate for the end of the september, and the fed meeting on wednesday, we will have our special coverage led by caroline hyde. i look where we are with these troubled industries and does it roll over to the general economy as well? jonathan: that is the issue. for equities right now, job cuts , cost cuts might be seen as bullish. medium-term the labor market is not doing well. it will not look good for demand. that is the push and pull, the tension. what is the tension in high-yield? lisa: the tension is nil. the question is when the fundamental start to matter again. right now it looks like the
8:32 am
fundamentals will have free money for a long time. intothat is a good skew william gross. the world would stop when he worked at pimco for a monthly newsletter. he is in a kind of retirement where his golf game, reports have it has improved. we are thrilled with bill gross joining us today. here is why. the new normal is one of the great calls of the decade. gary should blame with his call of inflation and the inflation. then there was gross and mohamed el-erian in the new normal. if you look back to the advent of the new normal, now you have a pandemic overlay. do we escape your new normal at any point? i think we began to escape perhaps we will continue to do so. the new normal was based on a
8:33 am
slower economy, lower inflation. it incorporated globalization to some extent. demographic spirit i think the demographic influence continues -- demographics to some extent. i think the demographic influence continues. has not helped globalization, it has accelerated deglobalization. , the virus is changing things. tom: any number of things to talk about. i go to your memo where you talk about a $6 trillion deficit. we have heard this from other sources. the great economist claudia somme has made clear we need more deficit coverage. what does the bond world do if trillion, $4 $3
8:34 am
trillion, $5 trillion deficits? is a the bond world melding of the fed and the treasury. my way of thinking, this sounds rather derogatory, but the fed is the dog, the treasury is wagging it. if the treasury wants mother -- once money, -- if the treasury wants money, the fed will provided through purchases. do i endorse that? no. is that a constructive thing down the road? probably not. is it inflationary? probably yes. we will see. to the extent we have melted fiscal and monetary rather permanently, deficits can increase but we are at 100% of gdp already and it goes to 120%,
8:35 am
if thend at some point fed stays out of it, then inflation is going to come back. in any case we had inflation with financial assets and commodities that have come back in another form. michael: i remember that -- tom: i remember the day when you recommended procter & gamble dividend and the bond world fell off its collective chair. now we have permanent repression. i will give you great credit for coming up with that concept. we have an asset bubble because we have your financial repression? bill: i think so. we have an asset bubble because interest rates are near zero and negative in many parts of the world. , through dividend discount models and so on, has inflated growth stops and anything --
8:36 am
withh stocks and anything profits far in the future growing fast. wantcial repression, if we to speak to that is something that has always been swept under butrug by not only powell by janet and ben bernanke. it is something that can be fixed by a later point. prior fed chairpersons have focused on inflation or focused on re-big rating the economy to the extent -- on reinvigorating the economy to the extent retirees and pension funds and savers are being hurt. that can just wait. at some point it cannot. we are beginning to see that. we do not have to talk about prudential or insurance or banks. we can talk about mom-and-pop on main street in des moines, iowa, where they have no more savings and they are not able to earn
8:37 am
money on whatever they have left. the problem here year is getting greater. that becomes the chink in the armor of this entire financial complex. jonathan: always enjoy your writing and you never hide your personality when you do right. today when people -- when you do write. when people read the investment outlook, it is not the thingsent -- it is the you read about your family. with the deep amount of respect for your career, what is behind that as you put this out? bill: i have always wanted to let people know who i am. to the extent they know who you are and there is a certain amount of honesty and talking about yourself and your life, to my way of thinking it always translated to an equal amount of
8:38 am
honesty in terms of the investment world. always been an autobiographical type of thing. i did not want to write a book about my life, but to a certain extent these outlooks outline my life as i have moved along. the current one, where i talk about my son's tattoos i think is interesting, it is a topical piece of information, not only to my family but for society the extent readers like it, fine, if they do not like it, that is fine, too. jonathan: you know many people are interested in your life. once again, with the deep amount of respect for the family members that might read this and be terribly upset, you do refer to your son is a disappointment. you look happy as we talk. hugely successful. when people read this, they might be thinking bill sounds bitter and unhappy.
8:39 am
what would your response be if they ask you that? bill: i talked about tattoos. i said he was a disappointment in terms of tattoos. that does not mean he is a disappointment as a son. did not have enough room in space for that. i talked about my other two kids as well, relatively tattoo free. just something funny to talk about, especially the tattoo on the inside of my sons lip. son did issue is his not get a 49ers tattoo. that is the real issue. lisa: and he will go get a tattoo. i want to go back to the investment thesis, you are making the analogy of the tattoo on the global economy that cannot be removed for a long time and you talk about how you expect the bulk of stimulus to have already occurred and it is time to get more defensive. what does it mean to get defensive with yield so low right now?
8:40 am
bill: a number of things. tattoo is applicable to the global economy. a tattoo is a discoloring of the skin, and certainly the global economy has been discolored by the virus and things have changed in many ways as we have spoken in the last half hour. what does it mean in terms of investment and yield type of investment? i am always amazed, and i do not discount the phenomenon of growth stocks and the fangs and the big five and others because as real interest rates have to -130 in the u.s. basis points, much more than other countries, the dividend discount models would account for that and make growth stocks do much better than other
8:41 am
investments in the u.s. and globally. in terms of dividends, i have always -- i am always amazed that if others do not recognize you can borrow money at 1% and investors can borrow a 2%, relatively stable 7% to 8% , i gravitated to natural gas pipeline stocks with relatively firm dividends -- the bread is enormous. if you compound that 6% -- the spread is enormous. if you compound that 6% or 70% a year, that is almost as good as a growth stock. not as good as an amazon, but a good stable investor. lisa: are using leverage is good in this kind of environment given how low rates are? bill: for sure. to the extent leverage comes back and snaps you, it does that when central banks raise rates.
8:42 am
i do not think, and most do not think rates will be raised for a long time. if you want to be able to borrow money you can do that with funds that lever, you can do that with margin at your own account. whenever you lever you want to do it safely, because we know ultimately leverage is destructive in the forerunner of a bear market as opposed to able market. always appreciate your transparency and you are always generous with your time. bill gross on his new investment outlook he released earlier this morning. let's get to some of the price action. equity futures bouncing back. on the s&p 500 we are positive. up next, patrick foye of the mta. that is next on "bloomberg surveillance." now leadingle is the race for tiktok. the music video app's chinese

foye come and you can do all of the suit and tie stuff, you can n'sd jennifer gunnerma fantastic article in the new yorker magazine about driving the bus across central park north through the pandemic. it is extraordinary journalism. patrick foye, i know you saw the article about one of your bus drivers. i love, deep in the article, , i willey say paraphrase, the policeman see you when they are needed, but the bus driver and the mta see us every day. employees perform heroically during a pandemic, as they did after 9/11, as they did after superstorm sandy. the coronavirus exacted an incredible toll across new york. 131 of our colleagues passed
8:50 am
away from a virus. new york was the epicenter. the hurlock work drove men and women working on subways and buses -- the heroic work of men and women working on subways and buses and bridges and tunnels is extraordinary. each of those men and women played a extraordinary role in new york during the pandemic, which i remind your viewers is continuing. tom: what is so important is with the funding shortfall, and if you do not get aid from various larger governments, how many layoffs do you foresee? pat: we are asking the federal government for an additional $12 billion, which is the amount of loss we will have the remainder 2020 and into 2021. significantlyown greater than during the great depression, which is extraordinary.
8:51 am
if we do not get federal aid, and that is incumbent on the republican senate leadership to move that bill and move that funding, we may have to cut subway and bus service up to 40% and layoffs about 7400 employees and up to 50% serpas reduction on metro-north and long island railroads. those cuts would be devastating. the mta is the circulatory system of the new york city regional economy. jobs will not be created, the recovery will be stunted if we do not get that level of funding. i also want to point out the following. ,he chicago transit authority important and well-run agency, pre-pandemic carried about 2.5 billion customers -- 2.5 million customers on an average day. in the throes of the pandemic we carried 2.6 million. that is a pre-pandemic comparison in the case of chicago and during the pandemic
8:52 am
in the case of the mta and it demonstrates how important the mta is. if we do not get that funding enough to make those cuts, it will have a drastic effect on the new york economy. lisa: as somebody who grew up in new york city riding the subway system and who has seen it through the 1980's and 1990's, there is a fear we are heading back to another era with the subway system. how realistic is it we will make those cuts? a lot of people hear what you're saying and chop it up as a negotiating tactic. are we on the brink of heading back to the 1980's and 1990's for the subway system? pat: it is not a negotiating tactic. we have been downgraded again. the rating agencies are not political figures, they are calling it as we see it. going into 2020, we expect an $80 million surplus, we expect it to take hundreds of millions of dollars out of the expense base of the mta. we have done that.
8:53 am
we expect to an additional billion out in 2021. this is not a negotiating measure. deficit we12 billion have to face. the only level of government that can fund that is the federal government. every state and every city is broke, including the state of new york and the city of new york. it is only the federal government. it is a national crisis that requires a national solution. lisa: given that financial backdrop, how do you plan on employing the resources to enforce the new mandate to wear a mask on buses and subways or face a fine? pat: it is a great question. the mask find provision into effect this morning. countingeen serving, mass compliance before today was subways,ses, 91% on well over 90% on metro-north and long island railroad. i spent the morning with the mta
