power through this. rishaad: let's get away from this probe going on. about the this story big three chinese airlines getting together? we've seen a bit of this talk and other industries. how does this affect other prospects? >> if anything, this might improve the prospects. there has been talk of combining too outerations, may be of the big three, maybe all three. it's just really rumors. that perhaps removing this follow on this corruption investigation might be seen as getting the ducks in order for combining the airlines. rishaad: what about competition? >> this is not necessarily an economy that runs on open competition like in the west.

the market suggesting there is a 50% chance of a rate hike by the end of the year. she? won't she? will yellen move or not? >> mission accomplished for the chair. she called it a live option, and the markets have responded to that. the data, non-farms tomorrow. the data will have to justify for that. >> what would have changed in china? >> i would say the communication of the fed regarding global risk has been pretty confusing and the last meeting. i think it has stumped a lot of us. there was so much focus on it. for example, the financial
volatility and china might indicate a deeper underlying issue in terms of growth. it might? but when will you know if that is a material risk for the u.s. economy? stunning that they would remove that in the last meeting so quickly after raising it. things have been more stable in china. that is true. i don't think they will stay stable in china. i think we will see a lot of volatility around china. if she does move 25 basis china by december, unlikely to remain stable? >> if they go in december, they announcemultaneously they are canceling all meetings for 2016. it will be gradual. that is what markets are
expecting, a very gradual raising. >> what should the response be from asia? >> coordination anywhere is difficult in asia. the fed move isn't the most important thing. we just finished the survey of , and they said they are not that scared about the fed. they are more worried about what is happening in china. i think the markets are well prepared. you mentioned malaysia. you heard officials there repeatedly say it would be constructive for the emerging markets and malaysia and the rest if the fed were simply to .ift off they may be adding to the uncertainty and markets.
we can deal with the fed. then it will be back to china. >> they say they are ready for a rate hike. i they ready for the capital outflow that may still come? i think that malaysia is a great example of places that have enjoyed capital outflows, but also markets are fickle. i think a lot of the emerging markets have prepared themselves for the outflows, and you can see various forms of reasonable management using their reserves. that is why you build reserves up in the first place, i do think that it is certainly better if funds are flowing in. malaysia have been able to manage that.
it, particular part of which is dealing with capital outflows is not the part that worries me. there are other risks. these are the things we just discussed on the panel i came out of. we just don't know a lot of the other risks that may have been developing as a result of this long span of slower growth. >> what is the main concern for 2016? what will be the focus for the new year? outflows in a way that you haven't seen before. it has been external triggers. -- in the past, it has been external triggers. there have been other flows by the sector, and some official flows including from china that have become very meaningful for
different parts of the world. they may not be a lot of money for china, just like a lot of the exports may not be big from a chinese perspective, but for these countries, anything from china, financing, trade, has become very important. i think that is potentially where you could get a crisis as china begins to shift. if china moves a little bit, it could be huge for these other countries. cut's, $800 billion, is that enough? >> i think china can manage it for themselves. what they are doing for the chinese economy, you don't see a generation being hampered. you see stability there. for everyone else, the communication of what china is trying to a now that affects
others, the fed could do better, certainly china could do better. that is where i worry. if china makes these policy moves that are constructive for them in the medium are long-term , but unable to explain to everyone else, the volatility we see in markets will remain huge. >> thank you. thanks. they have had a huge small problem, but they can count themselves lucky. india is even worse. we will find out what is going on and head over to mumbai when we return in a couple of minutes. ♪
