david: from bloomberg's world headquarters, here is what we are watching. mr.'s fly to moscow, and officials in vienna start more talks to try to salvage a deal on production cuts. and the president-elect alleges millions voted illegally. it is cyber monday, the biggest online shopping bonanza. we speak with the ceo of wayfair to see if trading will increase. for now, abigail doolittle joins us now. abigail: first down day in u.s. stocks in five days. this after the three major averages closed at record highs to the dow and the s&p 500 had been on a four-day streak of putting in record highs, the first since 2014.
perhaps investors taking a breather after the record highs. oil andgy complex -- gas trading higher. oil up more than 2.5%. natural gas on its six-day hold for a row on a december. investors hoping opec will hammer out a supply cut deal. if we go into the bloomberg and look at g #btv 5128, this is a chart on interest and oil going back to 2000. we see the number of contracts that have changed hands each day are near the highs going into the hopes for this first supply cut deal in eight years. we will have to see if that comes through wednesday. as for an area of weakness, we are looking at the banks. citi andower eyes
sfl, thego says the more than 10%. and finally, we are looking at arbitrage in under armour. under armour is getting a nice is, but under armour class c up nearly 9%. the company will turn ua into "uaa." they will take the under armour now class c and put it under the traditional symbol of "ua." does not, the class c have voting rights, but the b holds most of the voting rights.
so it is more valuable than investors previously thought. vonnie: thanks. let's check in on the bloomberg first word news. emma chandra has more. emma: abc news reports one suspect is dead after an including a shooter at ohio state university. wtvn in columbus reports nine people were hospitalized. two are in stable condition. no details on the other seven. shelter in place warnings have been lifted and investigators say the senior secured. classes have been canceled. the death of fidel castro have raised questions what the president elect will do about u.s. policies toward cuba. on twitter, trump says if cuba is not willing to make a better trade deal for its people, cubans, and americans, and the u.s. as a whole, he will terminate the deal.
wisconsin election officials are expected to meet to discuss a possible timeline for a recount of the presidential vote. recounts are also possible in pennsylvania and michigan. this follows revelations that hillary clinton leads the national popular vote by it close to 2 million ballots. donald trump won the electoral college votes. -- ministers tried to remove zuma if the president does not quit. global news 24 hours a day, powered by our 2600 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. i'm emma chandra. this is bloomberg. david: -- vonnie: i just want to point out what is happening with the markets. the dow down one quarter the --
a percent. health care stocks are leading the way. but the vix is important today. 13. above it has been falling most of the day. vonnie: --david: we will look at the "bloomberg markets" deals report. in focusg media deals as time inc. rejected a takeover from bronfman. john chachas is a managing advisor at methuselah capital advisors. he advised clear channel on its $18 billion buyout. he is begin with alex sherman. alex: i want to dedicate the segment with the divide between traditional and new journalism. on a processsed
that takes many months. in hindsight, d second-guess the strategy at all? -- in hindsight, do you second-guess the strategy at all? there was a lot of public disclosure about what our client wanted to do. it is a shame it took as long as it did. the outcome speaks for itself. i think in the end, the news industry and print in particular, will continue to go through substantial changes that necessitate consolidation and horizontal consolidation. is it a target itself? john: there are people that make lots of noise about these companies. when they make it known, they make it known. alex: david mentioned time.
is time one of the companies lumped in with those publishing companies? is a lot of speculation that anyone in print, there's a lot of changes. the boards of these companies have to look dutifully at well-financed proposals that create shareholder value. they are going to have to decide if they want to turn down cash bids. there are times when that is warranted. possibilitieser that create lots of synergy, hundreds of millions of dollars. i think investors in these companies will demand the boards be really scrupulous in their analysis. analysis isneral traditional media companies have failed because they did not get into digital media early enough. i want to show this graph.
it shows based on analysis, the growth in digital media is all in google and facebook. if you look at the graph, everyone else combined is actually losing shares. correct, doess is this mean digital media is a disaster of a business for every other company? john: it is an interesting graph. wehink what it validates is have seen 15 years of transition from traditional assets and we have seen the emergence of a couple real giants, who already have massive market share among nowtal ad spend and are getting a massive amount of growth in digital ad spend. if no one else is growing, maybe we have hit a new plateau, where the media has changed. so the "new york times" and
newyorktimes online. your digital businesses have a piece of that, but it may just be a piece and it may not be the nirvana that everyone thought. i have to do this for you -- these are my snapchat glasses -- alex: keep those on. john: these other things young people want. if that turns into a fantastic business or not as an ad medium, the jury is out. alex: can i just where these for the remainder of the interview? for $1000. there is a line out at 58th street where you can buy one. alex: the trouble election cast doubt into does the traditional media have any teeth anymore. cast outump election
into does the traditional media have any teeth anymore? are these companies actually in danger of becoming more irrelevant and therefore losing value because the general country has decided they have lost faith in the? m? john: i think you will see case studies in business school, entire white papers written on this election. the judicial license news organizations, as well as broadcast news organizations, such as your own, cnn in particular, they really had a comeuppance. i think there is a distinct possibility that the reason the eets get aslect's tw much attention, even when they are not grounded in information that supports them, is i am not sure the consumer cares anymore. the consumer has been fed a steady diet of news and narratives exactly for their demo or their age or their
ethnicity or religious orientation by these organizations. so the consumer may be thinking he is not telling the full truth, but are they telling the full truth either? looking at the election, you have to have some respect for that. how is it possible that such a vast number of news organizations, that purport to have such posters, fundamentally missed the election by a lot? they got there but -- their butts kicked. we are in some really unchartered territory. managingn chachas, director of melissa -- of methuselah capital advisors. vonnie: i just want to say not only those glasses will change the results of the 49ers game. sorry about that. coming up, donald trump will meet with retired u.s. general

the four-star general had to leave under a cloud. could he be considered? >> it is a really interesting question. he could pave the one question is how much pushback with that get from democrats? perhaps it does not matter, given the composition of the senate and the confirmation process, but as a political energy given how much donald trump put into criticizing hillary clinton for her use of a private email server, david petraeus is widely respected across the aisle for his oversight of two conflicts, both the war in afghanistan and iraq, and has a lot of foreign-policy experience, a lot world.act across the david: what could this mean for mitt romney who was, as of last week, reportedly in the front running to be secretary of state? to thet: it is important
member that donald trump is scheduled to meet with mitt romney. that would happen tomorrow. it appears there is some schism world donald trump's about which direction to go. it is hard to say precisely where the president-elect's mind is at this point, but david petraeus would be a strong counter candidate to mitt romney. and there is a lot of pushback and the core trump support group. against romney. but romney still has many fans in republican politics. vonnie: in terms of hawkishness, rate them. ?ho is more hawkish than whom and does it matter? margaret: they both have completely different experience. the romney is more of a businessman and has contacts in that world.
david petraeus more of a military man who has contracts in that world. there are a couple of things to keep in mind. one is how heavily does donald populate his cabinet with either active or retired military generals? another is precisely this question about how much power the secretary of state would wield. under president obama, his secretaries of state have ownmpted to start their version of foreign policy, but the national security council has a strong hand in shaping it. that has been the truth since richard nixon. -- and there are other potential candidates as well. david: you took a trip through twitter stream, and you see him reacting to reports that jill stein, the
green party candidate, would pay for recounts in wisconsin. what are the next steps there? does this move outside of wisconsin? margaret: it is interesting to see how the trump transition team is responding. saieh that what jill stein is doing is a shiny object, pay no attention to that. the question is what steps would a trump just been -- justice department do once he takes office? vonnie: can you tell us why hillary clinton's campaign will get on board with this? margaret: it appears hillary clinton's campaign felt they had a better chance to monitor this once jill stein made it clear it would progress, but it runs counter to her campaign message, which was that the results speak for themselves. vestigaes of the clinton
vonnie: this is "bloomberg markets." i'm vonnie quinn. david: i am david gura. opec ministers are trying to salvage a deal on production cuts. foundations of the deal are looking shaky. villa biter -- the lumbar return buiter spoke earlier today. willem: it is not just the usual suspects disagreeing.
in the background there looms a likely increase in u.s. production as to regulation, fuelially in fossil leading to a boost in u.s. production. so as far as i can see, it is hard to see a successful and enduring outcome of this freeze or cut, whatever they try to achieve. >> even if you do have a freeze or cut, whatever it is they come with, do you think we see oil prices low enough to remain stimulative to the global economy? it depends on what causes it. if there is a boost in supply, it will be's derivative. if it is weak demand, it is a reflection of weakness. if the u.s. starts producing significantly more, i think we
see weak oil prices. if not, we could see at this level or even higher. it depends on what the u.s. does and whether opec will get its act together. cartels are notoriously fickle beasts. >> how much of this is political and how much is economic? in respect to u.s. production, how big of an effect does the president-elect have if he says let's drill more? willem: it is huge. this is a president who aims to deregulate. there are there controls -- and there are other controls that have limited mining. as al will be boosted result of him being president. that should be reflected in prices, especially when we get to 2018. >> so when you look at the energy landscape now, whether be
shale production in the u.s. or opec, and you try to way that other economic factors around the globe, how important is the price of energy, at this point, in terms of your calculus of economic growth? willem: it is not my major concern. i am more concerned that peace reigns in the international trading field and we get the kind of fiscal boost that markets in this country seemed to have are ready internalized. if that works, then the price of other energy sources will, of course, be lifted alongside. a highly successful overground --ld be damaging to economic
david: enough to reverse trump trade? willem: no. think it is too deeply rooted to get kicked out and we will have to wait to see what actually happens in the way of tax cuts, infrastructure , and, of course, the tax cut. the markets are assuming the best. david: willem buiter, earlier today. vonnie: coming up, wayfair's ceo niraj shah. this is bloomberg. ♪

don't matter? the things of the iranians is they keep insisting they will not cut --they want to keep their pre-sanctioned levels of more than 4 million barrels a day. there have been a few offer circulating. to 3.9re offered to cut billion -- 3.9 million barrels a day. they are accepting of opec, a saudi-led deal, which will be very hard to sell to the hardliners. until the iranians and iraqis get on board, it is going to be very hard for opec to get a deal done by wednesday. david: how much of the focus is on moscow? there was an effort to bring russia into the fold. a phrase might be on the table, but cuts are not.

for russia, it will be interesting to say they will do it. i doubt it. vonnie: what is the official deadline? is there one here at all? effectively, they could be the meeting without a deal. deadline ishe wednesday. this is the official opec meeting. they have had some many meetings since this algiers deal at the end of september. they have met in doha twice. they have met in istanbul. they had been meeting all less week. there are technical teams in vienna. wednesday is supposed to be the bottom line for a deal. it will be interesting if they decide to pick up talks next week, or if they start playing hardball and that is it for six months. david: thank you so much. still ahead, amazon is

for a wild. alibaba is the biggest marketplace namely comes to counterfeits. amazon is big and growing and has a lot of spending going on which makes it a prime target for counterfeiters. david: how difficult is it to police this? amazon has is marketplace in great and its site, so you can be buying something from an amazon warehouse, or something vonnie has manufactured? spencer: that is a great question. amazon was to streamline that for legitimate sellers. they want to have it is seamless as possible. they have to balance that with that same ease for legitimate sellers. but it makes it vulnerable for counterfeits. vonnie: these products, i want to make sure that amazon does
not try to sell similar ones to the ones i am manufacturing, so they will keep me as a customer. how do they do that? do they put a huge amount of reserve, inside, in case it should be necessary, or what? that is what is coming. the only legal responsibility these marketplaces have is that a mechanism to use the legitimate brand to report fakes when they pop up, and then take actions to knock them down. amazon has said in a lawsuit is that it spends tens of millions of dollars a year on scientist and programmers trying to be more proactive and identify these things before the infiltrate the site. but it is still happening. they're dedicating resources to it, but the counterfeits are still infiltrating. david: you wrote in your piece,
spencer, that sports leagues are worried about this. any sports league would like to offer their merchandise on the world's biggest online marketplace. how big of a concern is it to amazon? spencer: that is a concern where counterfeits are inhibiting amazon to get out of the marketplace. majorly baseball and the nfl -- major league baseball in the nfl had a standstill. they want to see amazon doing a better job of policing and keeping fakes off their site. they want them to be more proactive about it and left reactive. their process gives counterfeiters time to get buyers before they pop up somewhere else. mores want to see a proactive approach.

is planning for the season and trying to anticipate how much capacity in need. how much of an increase or you projecting? this year, we are going to deliver over 700 million packages between thanksgiving and christmas. that's an increase of 14% over last year. we are certainly ready to handle that increase load. >> obviously, we've seen the shipping grow by leaps and bounds along with online shopping. it doesn't seem like it's going to slow down anytime soon. is there a level at which the capacity not just for you all, but for the global in just six system is going to be too much to handle? are we far from this place at that point? grexit speaking for ubs, can tell you through working with our customers that we have increased capacity and will continue to do that as demand

and i wonder what your internal planning tells you about what a donald trump presidency could mean. i can make it three issues. one is consumer spending, if there is growth, that could be more and customer spending. and infrastructure, number three is trade. an important part of the growth is titan international growth and international sales. what do you projecting to two 717 -- 2017 and beyond? >> we look forward to working with this administration just as we have in the past. we are focused, with we have common ground with the administration, increasing american competitiveness and that certainly is adding infrastructure, makes a big difference. corporate tax reform we think is a big part of that. making sure that we have rules and regulations that encourage technology and productivity gains. and then in trade, we believe the trade is very important. and that trade agreements will
help even the playing field across the world with the united states. >> are you and your colleagues in touch with the trumpet transition team already to talk about what's going to happen at treasury or commerce? with any administration, we work together and we have had conversations with staff members and the like, but we, as the administration comes into office , we will certainly have much more time to discuss the key how weand just explain think we can accomplish making america much more competitive than we have been in recent years. david: that was david abney earlier today on bloomberg daybreak americas. vonnie: by how much is the american consumer be stepping up this year? the ceo of aged son joined
bloomberg daybreak americas to tell us how shoppers fared. people were engaged postelection, but they were really driven by the deals and promotions they were saying. is, is not cyber monday, it's cyber every day at this point. i think people have an of what they're going to pay for. and they are buying what they want, but they are waiting. i think the biggest news from the last week is this device is no longer a pos, this is your flagship store. i think that is what everybody has to thinking about. reported in the third quarter that digital was 53% of overall business. mobile was 22%. that number, we're going to see jump in the fourth quarter. just what we've seen in the last week, mobile traffic, mobile engagements, even in the high ticket brands, you saw mobile sales increase very high
double-digit. hear what theyo are buying. in other words, what kind of trends are you seeing in luxury versus some of the other spectrum of price points? and what kind of stuff is most popular now? >> certainly electronics this time of year drums a lot of business. that's everything from four k tvs to drones to mobile. >> you see that every year. >> that trend is intact. for there going to look best values because every thing is transparent today. it behooves us to work closely with our partners to be able provide those values and promotions to the customer. we are also seeing what i would call practical presence. straight gadget gifts. we saw strength in nfl, for example. lesson things like apparel and jewelry, which we don't promote very heavily this time of year.
gifts,n anything in whether that's for oh-fer were gadget or without anything else, people are definitely in very specific about what they are buying. you mentioned values and discounts. that brings me to a question about margins. can the business make it up on volume? the instant comparison across the world about prices has to drive john margins. >> that's the big question. and we're all talking about sales. it really is going to come down to margins. what i've seen in the past week is deeper discounting than we have ever seen before. and that, on top of shipping and handling. we're trying to do things like customization and personalization in the new design stores, we had in store monogramming that was driving a lot of traffic. treating the customer like a vip, investing more in exclusivity on it. investing more in the talents that can do that. it's a big focus. mindy grossman, hsm ceo.
dealort, if the supply cut from opec comes through, it may not be that big of a deal. on top we had non-opec producers, on bottom we had the opec production. year, that over the last year-and-a-half, opec production has been declining while non-opec has been increasing. so this chart may suggest that whether the deal comes through or not, it may not have much of a weight on the price of oil going forward and whether or not we do go into a fourth surplus in a row. supporting the idea that the non-opec producers are really having a big influence on the oil market, when we take a look at the five-year chart, this is of the department of energy crude oil production data over the last five years, up nearly 50%. telling us about a lot of supply here in the u.s. a different look at this is an important index over the last five years, down near the lows of the last five years. this chart max we suggest that opec cut could help the oil
market, but it also can suggest any not be enough to really sway it all that much. lots of volatility and uncertainty. when you take a look at the oil oil volatility index, it's been trading around the bottom, not a lot of volatility. more recently all of these hopes that opec could cut supply, we see it topping back higher. lots of uncertainty around oil and we will more on wednesday -- we will know more on wednesday that deal is handled out. vonnie: abigail doolittle, thanks. david: time to the bloomberg business flash with the biggest stories in the news right now. a $160 million funding round for stride just minted ireland's youngest billionaires. they own about 29% of that business now valued at $9 billion. the bloomberg billionaires index net worth data puts the founder

stephen poulos is giving a speech today. he will likely address canada's economic struggles and growth. -1.6% at the last reading. speaking canada anchor exclusively with us, joining us exclusively from toronto. added: much has happened since the last meeting. in october, when the bank decided not to move, they held study that rates are at .5%, which consists among the higher-yielding central banks in the world. they came very close to cutting, and unusual telegraphing of their intentions at that meeting. some of the reasons they cited were the weakening of the economy, the fact that we haven't yet seen the federal government's fiscal stimulus showing up in the economy. and uncertainty around things like housing, as you mentioned and the u.s. election.
you fast forward to next week's meeting, december 7, ask what's changed? the canadian economy remains weak. we've yet to receive a kick in from stimulus spending and we have bond deals reacting quite election ofthe president-elect trump. you put that altogether and you have to questions about whether or not they are not going to cut next week. the betting sort of point in that direction. david: i wonder if he's been to talk about yields. is that going to be on his agenda? amanda: very much so. one of the questions that's true for investors on both side of the border is the back of an yields we've seen due to genuine fundamentalist dictation of inflation from a trump presidency, or other short-term factors at play. could this be a buying opportunity for bonds or not? where is this a real inflection point. he has a factor that in on two fronts as yields go up, the cost of oil -- of homeownership goes up, and the housing market has
been a real focal point for all of our regulars. only today, the financial services regulators warning the banks not to count on rising prices as they assess whether a mortgage is risky or not. this thing could come to an end, and sure you are not offside on their mortgages. as was he was rates go up, the cost of lending goes up. for the central bank, gives the room to maneuver. he can actually cut rates and still have some space. he's not encouraging risky borrowing. mixput all of that into the of those the kind of things he's going to have to factor in, even as things like policy around housing is up. unorthodoxmay be that is been floated around various different banks, he could potentially do that would involve an interest rate pause. amanda: the expectation is he still has a lot in his toolbox. of that central bank overnight rate, this bank could still go to zero and beyond.
there's a possibility of negative here if it was deemed necessary. there's also quantitative easing the possibility that canada has not yet taken advantage of. in terms of cooling other parts of the market, we are other government agencies asking on that, including the federal government. in our country, we have a system of insurance around mortgages they really insulates the banks from the worst effects of a big housing market correction. regulars are pondering making them really share the pain of a big risk in the mortgage market. and a laundrylts flinch or invite by taxpayers, but the banks have to share some of the pain. that is not the governor's jurisdiction, but that kind of thing comes into play, he has to weigh the effect it has on the economy. on wednesday.data i imagine he's going to be asked tout trade and the degree which things have changed since
tall front has been elected. what have we heard? amanda: he will actually address it. his speech is actually on the services component of the canadian economy, which is one of the fastest-growing. a little bit of good news. we have an 80 billion dollars and $90 billion hole in the economy thanks to lower oil prices. we deceive growth -- we need to see growth. globalization, free trade, it will definitely be asked by tradeers about protectionism and what effect that will have. it's hard to try and make a guess about what will happen to try and guess all policies. it does have to go into the mix when he is how much stimulus this economy needs. vonnie: the canadian dollar .8% stronger. , caps on exclusive

>> he likens of thousands of others provided information to the government, which people involved in the program have confirmed now will be information that's available to president trump, and his governments, which she has committed to take a more aggressive approach when it comes to forcing people to leave the country. oliver: what has trump said about this specific -- what is he said about a juliet -- appealing it, addressing it? >> he said he is going to end it and other executive moves by resident obama on day one. -- president obama on day one. what remains to be seen is how literally and how specifically he chooses to keep that pledge. and if he does, if somehow he can be swayed by others, including people in the business community to change his view. among the questions is whether he would revoke immediately,
instantaneously, all of the work authorizations. meeting someone who was legally employable one day would be unemployable the next day, or whether he would allow them to run out. and also, how much of a deportation risk there will be for people who previously were daca.ted by dr. -- you can check out josh's story in the latest bloomberg businessweek. here for more every saturday and sunday on bloomberg television. vonnie: coming up on "bloomberg markets," rob thummel joins us. this is bloomberg. ♪

looking at this selloff. one way we could do it is by technical analysis. if you go to the bloomberg terminal, you can see that the is the most overdone as far back of the data takes us. is the worst of the bond rout over? ms. gaffney: for now, i think it is. we're definitely going through the positive refreshes. in general, we can see the low interest rates, the secular bull market is over. i think we are -- we have to get prepared for a lot of volatility because it still is so much uncertainty out there. scarlet: there's a lot of uncertainty out there, and yet when you look at the forecast -- 2.54%10 year yield by the next year.
how high you see the 10 year yield going? ms. gaffney: i do think the direction is up. out 12 monthsg from now, we're going to be closer to 3% that anywhere near where we are today. scarlet: closer to 3%. all right. i know that in your note, you mentioned credit as a whole. that whole spaces overvalued. you noted that the drop in treasuries is not credited valuations. why is that? sharpffney: we had a move, but we also had a fairly positive backdrop in terms of what got the treasury market going, this whole idea that growth is going to pick up. that's a positive environment for corporate. we're still looking at interest rates that are fairly low, historically. they are low interest rates. there is still a demand for yield. i think it's going to take a few moves to get investors thinking
more broadly not changing investment executions. some of that we've seen with the steepening of the yield curve. i see not a huge opportunity because interest rates are going to continue to climb. scarlet: he safeguarded take a while for investors to get their expiration -- inflation excitations in line. we are starting to see that creep up. what is that a knee-jerk reaction to? reactioney: that's a to thinking about the new administration and the potential for broader fiscal policies and every structure spending. and as i mentioned, the uncertainty that still lurks is global. next on day, we are looking at the referendum in italy and we have a number of elections coming up in europe next year.
all of that will indicate what direction the global economy is going in. and while overall, i think we are headed for stronger growth and rising inflation because with these elections, it is time to get growth going, think we are to have a lot of volatility. there's a changing environment, and that type of uncertainty will create a back-and-forth in the rates markets, and bond markets overall. it really is important for investors to remain nimble. when bonds and selloff, i'm talking corporate bonds, that can be a good buying opportunity. was daily from sovereign bonds, think the yield their don't compensate you for the rate rise eventually. you're looking at negative rates of return. scarlet: i get what you're saying about volatility, but if you qualify that little that more. are we talking about gyrations were you have price swings?
or a sharp movement where the trajectory is much faster than what investors are accustomed to? ms. gaffney: we have a sharp move just in the last six weeks i think we will sell down and we may even reverse course in the short-term if the outcome in europe is unexpected. but when we get those big moves up, we broke out of the range quickly in 230 very the span of couple of weeks. and aype of volatility back-and-forth i think is going to create uncertainty for investors in terms of which way is the market really had it. market isng-term, the headed with rates moving higher and you want to be buying when bonds are getting cheaper and cheaper. scarlet: you are be buying is local currency emerging market debt, with all the uncertainty we have in the u.s., wouldn't
that plague the emerging markets as well? ms. gaffney: that's an excellent example. what we've seen is an initial knee-jerk reaction for emerging markets picking that trade barriers are going to go up with the new administration. but if the end goal for the global economy is for greater growth, emerging markets will benefit. it's important though to look for emerging markets that do not have a lot of external dollar-denominated debt and countries that are putting reforms through. i think 2017 is really a year about strong reforms, rates moving up, and better growth and changing inflation expectations, which is a very different environment from what we've experienced over the last several years. and why i think there's likely to be a lot of volatility ahead. scarlet: pretty much a 180 from week highest in previously. kathleen gaffney, thank you.

positive rhetoric helped seal the deal? -- amrita sen her opinion her opinion spraine general market opinion is if opec can't come together now, when can they? ,rices are at such low levels we really want to avoid where they have to call russia and the nothing happens. get opec in order first, that's why they want the iranians in the rockies -- and a rockies to come together. hopefully they get a deal. >> what do you expect from that meeting in moscow? there's between meeting with the russian energy minister. what are you expecting? >> is a very difficult time in. russia has consistently said they will only join in if opec know what they are doing.
we still haven't heard exactly what the technical meeting brings today. hopefully, they will no whether iran and iraq are going to join this meeting. if they do, they can take the deal to russia and then russia can come back with a proposal. if they don't, again, it's a wasted opportunity. >> how badly to the saudi's need a deal? >> they would like to see oil think -- i don't think they would do the deal by themselves. think that's why iran and iraq have been try to push them into a corner, expecting they would check the cut all of themselves. and that's why the saudi's have taken the hard line now. i market is to be aware of this because this is not going to be down to a lack of will, it comes down to a lack of logic. logically, they should cut. it's about the little baggage between all these countries and it may well be that they don't come up with a deal because of the saudi's are bearing this
cost by themselves, there is no deal. >> the rockies are sent to have alternate deal of taking a cut of 3.9 2 million barrels a day. could they sell that back home domestically to the hardliners? >> the problem with the iranian deal, i will continue to say this. there is no one deal. there are lots of different proposals. but the sims is one of the proposals. iran has always said they can do for million barrels a day. 3.924, when you are in the room, i think it's a close enough number that they want to do a deal, they can get the deal done. i think it's more question of trump's victory, do our letters feel more empowered and are they pushing for more and saying potentially the threat of sections coming back, they want to get to 4.2%, but iran can't increase production. they are pushing for more. >> last question.
no deal wednesday. where we see oil trade? isthe impression the market is is opec and the end of opec. i'm not saying that's the reality. i'm saying that's the perception. if wedn't be surprised see 20's again. not straightaway, but i think perception would be very negative. sen.et: that was amrita david betrays is now at trump tower. because can see has arrived at trump tower earlier this afternoon. is a possible secretary of state candidate. this just moments ago, meeting currently with the president-elect, donald trump considering him to be secretary of state, the celebrated four-star general arriving in midtown at trump tower. this is bloomberg.
president-elect donald trump is said to be considering david betrays to be secretary of state. the general live -- general arrived at trump tower, but the he made capthat mitt romney is fueling concern from from insiders. they are angry over his prior comments about trump. this is what kellyanne conway told nbc's meet the press. kellyanne conway: people feel betrayed to think the governor romney who went out of his way to question the character and the intellect and the integrity of donald trump, now president-elect, would be even the most significant cabinet post of all. that's a decision that only one man can make, resident elect donald trump. i respected and supported 1000%. scarlet: let's bring in ben brody in washington. betrays -- david petraeus enterprise tower. did he become a candidate
because there was so much outcry over mitt romney is the dental secretary of state? ben: it might seem that way, but trump reporters are telling us the general has been in the mix for a long time, even when it seems like it was a done deal with mitt romney before a lot of this hullabaloo came out. he has been in the mix in he'sous and ministrations been at the top of the foreign policy establishments for a long time. it's not that surprising, but it does come new today and it is sort of infighting. this very public declaration you have my kellyanne conway. he also have them by newt gingrich and mike huckabee, saying mitt romney is not acceptable. rubbed: her comments people the wrong way. david axelrod, a former adviser to president obama said she had been assigned the role of trashing obama publicly, or she
is trying to box in donald trump. was the early read -- what is the early read on which path he is taking? ben: you can be very difficult to know exactly what's going on in these type of tight circles, particularly around donald trump. there can be a lot of politics going on around there. can be a lot of different unorthodox ways of going on. people also suggested that she is trying to reach donald trump, who is an avid consumer of the media. it's a little long clear him we do know that kellyanne conway is a very good soldier. -- she was the campaign manager at the end of the campaign, she is always come to the president elect defense. makes all the more striking that she was coming out and saying this. but it also suggests there might be some internal machinations that she may be expressing. what they may be, it's hard to know. a lot of factions. scarlet: the associate press
trump was awarded michigan's electoral votes. what do we expect in the coming days? ben: she may try to go for a recount. the clinton campaign would probably then in turn say they are supporting at revising it, but not fully undertaking it by themselves. i think the key thing about michigan is what happened on november 9, which is the breaking of the blue wall in the democratic state. ben brody, thank you. reporting from washington. still ahead, the commodities close. oil is rising is opec ministers try to salvage a cut. oil minister says he is optimistic. this is bloomberg. ♪

affairs. i'm joined by tom friedman, the "new york times" columnist and the new book "thank you for being late and optimist the age ofriving in acceleration." so good to see you today. you.ank >> let's talk about some of the news of the day. which is president-elect donald meeting right now with general david petraeus. headlines coming out over the weekend about whether fit to bey is secretary of state. i'm curious given the context of talk aboutwhere you the conversions of trend between technology, market and climate it's gettingw faster. how do you think the role of has changed state versus eight years ago? the big change has to do with the fact that the macro change is to be secretary of state, for so many years of the united states, especially during war, wa about
managing and power and strength. and our strength. so much being secretary of state is about managing weakness. weakness. weakness of russia and the weakness of many states around that are falling apart if your hand. managing weakness is hell on wheels. agweakness. let's dig deeper. fit for better person that job when you look at who has been put out there? romney, david petraeus and rudy guiliani. who is the better person fit for that job? wouldn't get into the endorsement business, it is think can -- to be secretary of state now, you have know how to manage the great power relationship. -- also have to deal with we're in this strange geopolitical inversion. friends -- when world gets
interdependent, our friends can ilus faster -- kill us faster than enemies. viewer todayrg will be affected one way or another. greece is an ally. it's in the eu. greece can do terrible damage to us today. interdepend i want world, your rivals falling is more dangerous rivals rising. china takes two more islands in sea, if chinaa stock market melts down tomorrow, every viewer of this it. will feel same as russia. i don't like what russia is doing in ukraine. i'm glad we're standing up to it. at the same time, if russia to collapse and pill nuclear weapons and nuclear scientists, far more dangerous than anything it's going in eastern europe. >> it's not necessarily a troublesome blush
president-elect donald trump wants to work closer with russia? atnothing wrong with that all. there's very few big problems in the world we can solve whether syria orng about climate or nuclear proliferation without russia's help. is on what terms. putinon terms that allow to stomp his neighbors. it's really all about the terms. >> you mentioned in your book, i book.o get into your there are 18 things that the american government should do a single payer health system, to more free agreements to focusing on climate change. oneou were to single out important thing that president-elect trump or congress should do to make america great again. what would that be? >> the basic argument i'm the book, iard in
think we have to get out of this dichotomy.t-right i don't think that model serves century.n the 21st our two parties built around answering questions of the new deal, the early i.t. revolution and civil rights. i think that the parties of the future have to answer the question of how to respond three great accelerations in the that's globalization, mother nature, climate, population growth and technology. most out of those accelerations. where that take me politically, a singlee should have payer healthcare system. sweden, why can't it work for us on singapore. i would abolish all corporate taxes. i would replace some of the carbon tax, tax on sugar and small financial transaction tax. to get radically in

focus on the climate issue. of things trump can and can't do. even supreme court appointment, may take a long time. decision that he can irreversible. be mitigate climate change. i was focused on that. the question you have to ask which trump? this is someone who learns much talking to people than from reading. certainn surrounded by group of people since his election began. he's now opening his universe up like david petraeus or mitt romney or whole host of other people. he said bill gates called him. cook.ke to tim he's talking to a wider range of people. that's good and healthy. i would encourage that wider range to get in there. the election is over. the struggle for donald trump has just begun.
>> on that note, before we go, i know you're close to many ceo's around the country. people like tim cook and others. them?u run these ideas by what did the business people say to you about this? by them.'t run them i was intrigued trump brought it up. i would encourage all the smart this country, in there are many, to get in get in there with their views and ideas. he's entirely up for grabs. he's listening to a wider range of people right now. very important that they get their ideas in there. he's been really clustered with a very small group of people. views. them with extreme it's very important if he's himself up that people dive in there >> so good to see you. tom friedman "new york times"

rates just like other areas. in other words, the bank of canada's own influence over its marginal.is only look at england and germany and the u.s. all of these sort of move together. interest rates in the u.s. are rising if they continue to rise, policies.hange in that could have a spillover for canadian rates about 30ll be back in minutes time. canadaup, the bank of governor will be joining us 3:3. take on where interest rates in canada headed. this is bloomberg.

wealthy in general the deals great. consumers seem really pleased with them. little bit ofa down tick, it's due to stores weren't open on thursday. >> how does this set things up monday?r i wonder if black friday kind of the tone for what happens on cyber monday? >> historically for us, we've tone.hat it does set a good black friday leads to good cyber monday. we feel like it kind of sets the consumers in the right mindset and cyber monday for us ine bigger day terms of revenue and sales than black friday. >> what are the main distinctions between online purchases and in store transactions when it comes how is spent and how many transactions are made?
>> in stores still dominates the consumer landscape and still really dominate the american consumer for sure. fascinatingost things we're seeing is historically, retailers have run and instore separately. you'll see a great deal online replicated in store. one of the more interesting trends we're seeing this year is a really nice consolidation where they're running that together. they're having a deal that crosses the line and is good online and in stores. we had a huge increase in those this year. going to be a trend you'll see continue. seeing more convergence between online and the store. theme of discounting is something that we've seen over the last couple of years. since the recession. what is new about how these stores are picking their dick --discounts to shoppers?
a little biting of use of gift cards, some are bigger retailers spend 50 bucks, get a $10 gift card. little bit more around special offers. thingsr door busters and like that. -- it'sighlily discount highly discounted but one or two items. store and getthe you excited. you're seeing more focus this the 30% offybe everything. i say that and we saw some thely big discounts across board from a variety of retailers. broadcould see further discounts later on in the shopping season as well. i wonder, how much dynamic pricing can retailers impose on transactions.
as airline, when you buy a ticket, you have to buy now. if you go back in a week or two cookies in your computer make it so that you're to pay a higher price next time around. >> there's some retailers able to take advantage of that. most retailers in our experience can't. you still are getting kind of pricing that's good for everybody. if you feel like that's a use.rn, it's easy to incognito setting for your browser. in general, i will say that's less of a concern for most people. shopping around, coming to sites like retail me not and making aware of the coupons that's how to find the best deals. >> that's new when it comes to coupons? >> we're doing two things that are unique to retail me not this year. the first is, we have a variety of discounted gift cards. cards you buy from us at a
discount. they can be used on your purchase that day. it's called a gift card, you're buying it for yourself to use right now. savings are incredible. off across thent board. really relates nicely to our consumer. peoplesumers tend to be that really want to save money and they're willing to do a lot to save it. you come in and buy gift card use it right now. the other thing we're using more rebates. you spend $10 on a -- we'll give a $50 purchase. areas.re two >> thanks to cotter cunningham. today fromjoining us austin, texas. it is time now for the bloomberg business flash. biggest stories in the news now. dick's sporting goods is to digital,ansition .ame changer media
