it is like we have the whole set industry but we need through-put and that is the volatility ity so could catapult our returns more that may ompetitors have businesses that require ore risk taking and balance sheet deployment but generate a extrestream of earnings. we go up and down with the volatility so volatility in the or the first quarter for us is very welcome. expect more you consolidation in the european banking landscape? > i think eventually we will see that. for the moment everybody talks about it. are clear benefits to do it but there are big hurdles. regulation is not unified. fiscal policy is not unified and a lot of obstacles it bringing together banks especially cross-border because what we are talking

vix. yen over the last 12 hours, weaker turkish lira. we are on the five dollar earlier watch -- five dollar per lira watch. francine: potential headwinds to bonds leadinge some of the sovereign debt slower. -- sovereign debts lower. highershore yuan edging and the dollar climate gets most of its major peers. tom: over to said day -- over to fed day. it is simply the inflation-adjusted u.s. five-year yield. the red circle is the financial crisis beginning august 2007.
the nirvana here of a real five-year yield assisting retirees, assisting savers, maybe making for a normal bank environment, and we are not there. within the volatility we have seen since 2007, it is just not happening. right now is a little bit of rising inflation, we have a negative five year yield. it is a negative real yield, chairman powell. francine: is a great chart. i know we will see it -- that's a great chart. i know we will see it many times today. it is a simple chart looking at thatstocks after reports the u.s. and china will hedge discussions. investors look at more internationally exposed charts, specific kind of the one i'm looking for to give us an idea of what large caps are doing. tom: we've had a series of headlines, a series of moments
come over the last 24 hours on an economic slowdown in china. following this is our chief asian economics correspondent and a car and -- correspondent enda curran. is it a five handle economy, or can we say it is worse than that? enda: we can say the government said the growth target almost 6.5% this year, so in all likelihood the authorities pull out all the measures to make sure they had that growth target. whether private sector economists estimate growth to be lower or not i guess is a different debate. there's no doubt that the economy is slowing down or moderating. it is accommodation of two things. domestically they are trying to get a grip on the level of debt and slow the level of credit
creation. it is certainly on a moderating path. ,o disaster or hard landing yet but they will be wanting to get ahead of the curve. tom: what does inflation look like in china? i understand there's food inflation, particularly the pork price inflation. give us the picture compared to turkey and other economies. enda: they are not experiencing runaway inflation or inflation that would be added concerning level just yet. certainly not like economy's like the philippines, where you see classic overheating. there are impact on prices around china. we have the pricing around pork, for example. right now i think the inflation story is somewhat contained. there is a view that china's weaker yuan could become a
source of disinflation for the rest of the world, so china will be even less of an inflation influence on the rest of the economy. francine: good morning to you. maybe two reading years ago something from one of the big banks saying there's a possibility that china's interest rates would go to where the fed was. because of the sloan economy, they would have to do exactly what the fed did five or six years ago. is that likely or complete fiction? enda: at the moment what we are talking about is moderation of growth and activity, francine. it appears as though the authorities, while they are trying to get ahead of the curve, they also seem quite relaxed. tacklee not trying to shadow banking and the like. toy are taking nuanced steps make sure the parts of the
economy that need cash, need credit, will get it. there is some context to what is going on. they are certainly loosening the purse strings a little bit, but we are nowhere in your the kind boc isnario whereby the p forced to pull the economy out of a hole. even some of the worst trade war scenarios, i don't think too many are projecting that in the near to medium term. francine: thank you so much. stanley's now, morgan chief cross asset strategist. andrew, great to speak to you, as always. when you hear what we are hearing from china, coupled with the u.s. considering china may resume talks between china and the u.s., it is kind of self contradicting. guest: yes, there are many moving parts. the first thing that is really fascinating about the actions we see out of china is that they
are coming in the face of data that on the surface has seemed pretty good. pmi's are above 50. gdp in the second quarter was high. they have all been telling a different forward-looking story. that seems to be what the authorities are responding to, something that is much more defensive in nature to get off these risks from trade. withnk what you're dealing his news first law, that bodies in motion stay in motion until they are hit with another force. i think at the moment, our view of morgan stanley -- our view at morgan stanley is that tension will continue to escalate because there has been no market reaction. there has been nothing that has indicated this type of policy will have large negative consequences which will change that. francine: we are just getting breaking news out of tesla. this is according to our sources.
tesla is said to plan a $5 billion investment in a chinese factory. i don't know whether this is a supply chain, whether you have any insight on what this could exactly be come up at the timing i find quite significant because if you talk about a trade war and even the apple figures that were so good that could be impacted from the supply chain because of this trade, i don't know what that means with tesla now planning the $5 billion investment in a possible chinese factory. tom: we will have to see. it is extraordinary investment to real issuesw on the manufacture of automobiles. i guess we will get tesla earnings in a spirited press conference later today. we are going to continue with andrew sheets of morgan stanley. we want to quiz him on central banks and the fed meeting this afternoon. our special coverage at 2:00 p.m. this afternoon.
♪ taylor: this is "bloomberg surveillance." let's get the bloomberg business flash. bnp paribas came up short in debt trading this last quarter. bank says revenue from fixed income fell 70%, trailing the biggest wall street firms. equities -- 17%, trailing the biggest wall street firms. bank's cfo.the inwe are operating in europe this new interest rate environment, so that is a point we have to be careful of.
it is a point that we compensate by focusing on value-added services. are digitalization plan is also , so that is the overall element that we keep on focusing on. taylor: wealth management left profit at italy's largest publicly traded investment bank. the bank is proposing a dividend at the high end of its target range. shares of air france klm are rising. the struggling carrier posted second-quarter profits that beat estimates despite uncertainty and the search for a ceo. bloomberg spoke with the company's cfo. >> [indiscernible] -- which is good news, but of course we also have to keep in
there is an effect -- quite a negative impact. francine: thanks so much. apple shares jumped in extended trade after the world's most viable company projected sales that suggested consumers are continuing to snap up high-end phones. is apple poised to become the first trillion dollar company this week? joining us is alex webb, who covers bloomberg opinion on tech. still with us is andrew sheets of morgan stanley. there's a supply chain problem. is the trade war escalates, apple will be hit. guest: yes, it will hit the supply chain. has said -- reporter: yes, it will hit the supply chain. tim cook has said it will affect
production. even if they are unable to squeeze more profit by raising the price of the iphone, they are able to squeeze more on the bottom line by reducing its cost. francine: apple share price gained in premarket. what is the next thing people want to see from apple? reporter: there's always questions about what the next big product is. that theretion is will be some sort of smart glasses coming outcome, but probably not for at least two out, butcoming probably not for at least two years. apple is trying slowly to take towards valuations that facebook enjoy of 25 times price-to-earnings.
apple has 16, 17, pushing towards 18 times price-to-earnings. tom: alex, part of your charm is you are not a tech fan boy and not an apple fan boy. you've done some really good, smart, acute work on this. once again, the clowns were wrong who were negative to iphone and particularly the iphone x. this puppy is moving like nothing. ubs has a great analysis of this. what is the apple gloom crew doing now? what is the next thing they are going to worry about? reporter: is apple able to continue ramping up iphone prices by $50 each year? is there a ceiling to how much the consumer is willing to stomach? ,hen we talk about the iphone x the base price is $999. but if you want to add bigger memory, that is cost
another $100, $150. that memory chip which might cost apple $20 and they are charging $150 for is a huge profit driver. are they going to be able to continue on that trajectory? tom: come on, everybody i know is on a monthly plan. the difference is $34 or $48 a month. i hate the tech people that go do men gloom $1000 -- doom and gloom $1000. who do you know paying $1000 for an iphone x? reporter: it is a valid point. but it is still, particularly in the growth economy, which is where they sell more iphones, that is still a lot of money. if you look at india, vietnam, sub-saharan africa, that is the market where even $40, $50, $60 a month is a big chunk of change. less so in the u.s.
that's customers they arty have. francine: we probably should have already mentioned facebook with these accounts they say will talk to the government about. andrew commodity using the plunge of facebook and necklace will be the start of a plunging s&p in the u.s.? guest: i wouldn't say plunging. i think that is too strong of a take. but we are under way tech. technk the scenario where is weaker, if that is right, then the market does need to correct and adjust in august. and has obviously been important in the leadership story. better,inancials can do energy can do better, some of the value sectors can do better, but tech is so large and has been so important to market leadership that is tech is underperforming, it would lead
to some broader level of u.s. market we -- market weakness. francine: thanks so much. andrew sheets of morgan stanley stays with us. we will get back to some of these big names. facebook, for example. they cannot saying that we have these accounts. we are trying to -- they came out saying we have these accounts. we are trying to stop them. you are saying that this means there's a lot of other things they don't know. reporter: it is less about what they are saying that what they don't know it all. toreasingly we are having recognize that facebook is never going to be able to control this. that means i don't think we should stop talking about it. with any facebook scandal over the course of the past decade, 15 years, facebook has hunkered down and hopes to weather the storm. this is of a completely different scale. i think it is important we keep talking about it, but also recognize that if they are going to be an automated company,
there's no way they can really control this. they will have to keep spending on more eyeballs to watch this stuff. francine: thanks so much. it is almost certain the bank of england will announce a rate hike tomorrow. thestors will scrutinize language for another potential move this year and any split in policymakers' votes. vote expected they will 7-2 to raise. andrew, i don't know how to look at the boe. i've had a number of participants coming on a saying look, they are going to hike, but they shouldn't hike. is that how you feel? guest: we think they will hike, but we think they will hike and indicated there is still a lot of uncertainty surrounding the economy, the brexit process, and in the near-term it could be seen as a dovish hike. the big question facing the bank
of england more so than other central banks, to what extent do you have a negative supply shock in the u.k.? to what extent is the process around brexit or some related issues tightening the labor market further, restricting investment, and giving the u.k. something that markets haven't seen in a long time, a negative shock to the supply side which can create higher inflation without necessarily being higher growth? tom: i talked to governor carney before about the diffusion of united kingdom economic might out of london come out of the technology and service sector centers across the land of the united kingdom. is that occurring? are we seeing a dispersion of a better economy across the united kingdom, or is there still a colored it -- a polarity inequality -- polarity in the quality? -- polarity in equality? ,uest: when i visit burlingham
there is still a lot of investment going up there in a very significant way, but i think broadly speaking london is still the center of government, the center of finance, the entertainment industry in the u.k. that is still a very significant thing that i think is not close to balancing out. obviously i think there are shifts. and in the government elsewhere have talked about it, concentration of the government remains. tom: the question all in all of what mr. carney does, we saw boj yesterday, and the fed today and what is largely presumed to be a non-meeting. the bank of england has a real opportunity to say this is what we are going to see on inflation. is carney going to blink again? guest: i think this is where the supply issue i think is so
important. the market is expecting a hike. we think that happens straightforward. to what extent of the bank of england look at those factors and say there's a lot of tea, the labor market -- a lot of uncertainty, the labor market is tight, and the fact is might cause us to back off? francine: but why hike, apart from pound? guest: i think the rate on the bank of england's estimates is so far below neutral and the unemployment rate is so low. even i think we could sit here and say there seems to be a lot of uncertainty around brexit and we don't know where it is going to go and the deadline is getting tight, maybe that is wrong. it takes a long time for policy measures to work through the system. i think the bank of england has to adjust for some sort of risk. policy is very easy relative to neutral. we can still hike and have it
easy policy, and we need to start moving that direction. tom: very good. answer sheets with us. i want to come back and talk to mr. sheets about the caution in his shop, morgan stanley, as well. we've got fed coverage this afternoon, new york time a little bit before 2:00 p.m. we lost forward to thursday. we are thrilled to bring you two future numbers of the boe. really looking forward to speaking to these two. we spent a whole hour with them on different topics. will focus of course on tomorrow and the bank of england. stay with us from london, from new york. this is bloomberg. two, down and back up.

"bloomberg surveillance." francine, i believe we are going to tesla right now. francine: we are going to tesla.
tesla planning to invest $5 billion in a possible chinese factory. this is a nice bloomberg scoop according to someone familiar with the situation. this of course comes at probably in an opportune time because the trade war in the u.s. makes establishing production in china electricrative for the car pioneers. i'm not sure if it gives it a pioneer or gives at the end because it can export to the region if trade concerns were to escalate. emma, is this a good or bad move? is to build entire cars, model s sedans in china. it has been speculated about since before the trade war really heated up, but elon musk
didn't really seal the deal to build this factory in shanghai until a week after that first run of tariffs from the trump administration on $30 billion worth of chinese imports. it did look as the tesla was acting on that because the cost of exporting its cars to china increased when china retaliated against that trump move, so does look as though they are trying to really secure that local manufacturing base in what is its second largest market in the world. francine: talk to me a little about financing. think reporting, do we they are going to chinese money to help finance this, or is it money for a broad -- money from abroad? reporter: it is our understanding they will try and finance at least part of this within china, which is quite intriguing. , $5s a big amount of money
billion. tesla has under $4 billion in free cash at the moment. i guess they will try to do this loans.ans -- this via --n musk has said he's th has said he does not want to shares.ymore bonds or tom: i think you hit the heart of the matter, which is they really don't want to dilute and issue new bonds and equity. how does this fold into state owned enterprises? if they do loans, is mr. musk looking for some sort of traditional for an ga the, or is -- foreign gav, were looking to literally make it a state-owned enterprise? reporter: our understanding is he really wants to go it alone in china. but,, you just told me he doesn't want to do bonds and stocks.
you sound like elon musk on a conference call. he can't have it both ways. which way does he want it? reporter: in terms of ownership stake in the factory, is what i mean, he wants to own it outright, but yes, if you are going to raise the money here in prospect does open the of state owned enterprises, state-owned banks, other entities being involved. that is a factor. tom: emma, thank you so much. , o'brien with the reality over there, something i don't bash o'brieno'brien -- emma with the reality over there, something i don't think we will hear in tesla conference calls. here's taylor riggs with the bloomberg first word news. taylor: pressure ramping up on china to resume trade talks. bloomberg has learned the tepidness ration may plan to double its tariffs on chinese
imports. china may wait for the u.s. to take action before i takest its next moves. resident trump says china may be getting its way when it comes to relations with north korea, saying he has a good relationship with kim jong-un. as for chinese interference, "we are going to think when -- going to figure that one out before you can even think about it." white house may be backing off a slash tax bills on capital gains. some believe the plan would face an immediate legal challenge. these pictures make it hard to believe no one died in the crash of a mexican jetliner, but there were no fatalities when the aeromexico plane came down just outside the city of durango.
all 103 people on board were able to make it out. one official says the plane was hit by a wind gust as it took off. global news 24 hours a day, on air and at tictoc on twitter, powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. i'm taylor riggs. this is bloomberg. tom: thinks so much. good morning, everyone. this is what "surveillance" is all about. on our desk in london, andrew sheets of morgan stanley. we are thrilled now to bring you david lubin of citigroup. thrilled to have both of you with us. mr. lupin, let me start with you. you can see this on g tv . this of the indian five-year yield adjusted for one form of inflation. what i find so important is the regime of a real yield before the crisis, and they would -- and we are now back up to a
higher real yield in india commodity as a proxy for other countries as well. how tenuous is the higher real yield right now and some of these countries? >> i think what's interesting is there's a big difference between the real yield you see at the long end of the curve and the real yield you see at the front end of the curve. when you look at short-term real interest rates and the differential between real interest rates and real short-term interest rates in em and dm, the short term real interest rate differential is at a historically low level taylor: as you pointed -- low level. as you pointed out, the short end of the curve shows something different. which part of the curve is more important for financial stability, for stabilizing the exchange rate, and for avoiding capital outflows? my hunch is that the front end of the curve in the end is most significant. i think the fact that the real
short-term interest rate dmfferential between em and is historically low as one of the reasons why capital flow moved so freely in april, may, and june, and why the philippines, pakistan, and indonesia have had to raise rates. tom: let it go back to this core media idea, which is that chairman powell is the central bank over -- the central banker to the world. have distorted are the balance distorted are the balance sheets of the major banks? it does profoundly affect them, doesn't it? >> yes it does. powell made a speech in may where he seems to underplay the impact of said tightening on -- of fed tightening on emerging markets. u.s. monetary conditions play in overwhelmingly important role in
shaping the outlook for capital flows to emerging economies. such as g3heets balance sheets contract have i think that means the environment to capital flows for emerging economies remains very stretched. francine: you have this great book out which we are going to mention right now. tom, you can bring it to the beach. it is a short one. it is really quite good. what do people not understand about emerging-market right now? >> the real surprise in the last is we've had a big stabilization in emerging-market assets crisis during the month of july -- asset prices during the month of july. all it took was for the dollar to stop strengthening. 117 euro-dollar seems to be enough to convince investors to commit capital to emerging markets. it is kind of puzzling, but one of the reasons is that emerging
markets balance sheets are in pretty good shape. emerging markets have smith last 20 years acquiring foreign the last-- spent 20 years acquiring foreign exchange capital. economy policymakers have been desperately trying to get rid of all the vulnerabilities that made them susceptible to crises in the net in 80's and 1990's, and it has worked. -- the 1980's and 1990's, and it has worked. francine: what is your take on emerging markets overall? >> i would agree with quite a bit of what we just heard. i think it is an asset class that usually underperforms as you are later in the u.s. economic cycle. is also negatively impacted by what the fed is doing and what will continue to do. pricessame time, asset
are continually priced in your to date. if you look at u.s. high-end, despite fed tightening and balance sheet reduction in some of these risks, or some of these e.m. markets have repriced to come i think it is clearly pricing and a lot more risk premium for some of those same challenges, especially with the underlying fundamentals in many of these countries are good. we upped are allocation to hard currency debt in june. we took some out of the emerging-market equity side because we think the fixed income side looks better. broadly, aem fixed income -- broadly, em fixed income compared to u.s. corporate credit makes sense in the current market. tom: we are getting headlines out of india. i am going to the terminal to get them. mr. patel is speaking, talking about a few months of turbulence
, talking about the beginning of currency wars. he is saying the world as the -- the world is possibly at the beginning of currency wars, saying he has to run a tight ship. this sounds like em austerity. is that what we are going to see over the coming months, some kind of eu austerity reaction? >> it is somewhat straightforward. if monetary conditions are tightening, em monetary's will have to tighten. that would be destabilizing for expectations. the issue of currency wars have become particularly interesting now because of what's happening. in the last month, aside from the turkish lira, the only emerging economy exchange rate that has actually depreciated is the renminbi.
the central bank of china seems to be quite confident that the exchange rate can weaken without unleashing an unwelcome outflow of capital. in 2015,the concern 2016, that if the renminbi depreciated that would feed into chinese exchange rate expectations and fueling increased demand for dollars. because of the measures the chinese took in late 2016 and early 2017 to lock down the capital account and restrict capital outflows, the pboc seems to have more flexible the at the moment to let the exchange rate we can without shooting itself in the foot by creating an environment in which china's capital account because of stable. francine: david, -- becomes unstable. francine: david, think you so much. coming up, the trade war story.
♪ taylor: this is "bloomberg surveillance." i'm taylor riggs. tesla is going to ramp up production in the world's fastest-growing auto market. bloomberg has learned the electric car company plans to spend $5 billion building a factory in china. the factory will be near shanghai. tesla expects to start produce its new model three there by 2020. the world's second largest company was to keep boosting cash returns. dividend raised its and increased the share buyback program by $1 billion, and
approved plans to hand investors about $4 billion from development -- from divestment. lloyd posted better than in profits23% jump for the second quarter. the british bank also upgraded investment forecasts for the year. the banquet takes a $602 million charge to compensate customers for improperly sold loan insurance. that is your bloomberg business flash. tom: andrew scheetz was as of morgan stanley. we are thrilled to bring you with andrew david lubin of of "dance and author of the trillions." this is getting rave reviews. there it is. nice. david lubin is with us to provide clarity.
what is so important about your effort is you look at flows. the money flowing in, the money flowing out. what flows are going to happen because of trump policy? >> that's a good question. i think one of the slightly scary things about the longer-term future for emerging economies is that in the last few years, the net flow of foreign direct investment has declined quite sharply to developing countries. because if youe think about capital flows is coming into two buckets, one real capital and the other fdi part capital, the of it is the central part of it. fdi parta -- the links globalization. if fdi flows are
beginning, that signals diminished expectations for opening one's economy. in other words, the flow of fdi into a developing economy is predicated towards the idea that opening a country toward trade is a good idea. if we enter a more protectionist world -- and by the way, the trend towards protectionism did not begin on generate 20th or whenever it was donald trump was in a -- on january 20 or whenever it was donald trump was inaugurated -- but if we are furthered the globalizing and country find it less attractive to open their economies towards will, then the flow of fdi continue to decline, and that is bad news for growth. francine: what if, andrew, trade has we shifted? towards is a trend
and it doesn't touch the u.s. so much? >> it has been purposely been made complex as markets have optimized there supply chains to boost profit margins to record levels. obviously that's a choice. the governments could make a decision that they want to change that model of trade, that model of economics, and that is obviously up to those governments. the offshoot would be that if you are going to fundamentally reshape how products are produced, how the supply chains look, how these incredible complex supply chains operate, there's going to be a profit impact as companies need to -- there's a cost to move those factories, shift production, find different ways to do things.
all of that is going to be a negative margin story. tom: this is wonderful. andrew sheets of morgan stanley and david lubin of citigroup. your knees are shaking. your on the buy side. what do you do? save yourself. go to tv . you can yank these charts up, including the real india five-year yield. this is bloomberg.
♪ francine: and the second quarter, investor banks delivered stellar performances. ubs' leader,ke to who sees more volatility on the horizon. >> become more efficient by taking up costs or refocusing the way we do business, so that has been quite good. actually we are set to have a record year this year. european is particularly driving that trend. i do think the fundamentals are quite good. it is just that day after day,
the market environment is quite volatile. it is filled with uncertainties we don't know how to price. how do you price trade wars? brexit? protectionism? events in italy over the budget? you try to price them, but it is very difficult to forecast and adapt. francine: still with us, andrew sheets of morgan stanley. do you worry about this in the market? >> i do. it may be a little too much to say the market is completely complacent. people are aware of these uncertainties. but you don't see much premium priced into markets. you have the s&p was in a couple of points of an all-time high. generally the view of investors is that these tensions will eventually resolve themselves. we are concerned, especially heading into an august-september period the tends to be weaker for markets. francine: what kind of positions
do you take? >> think it makes sense to be long-vol in a number of different asset classes. we are looking at reduction strategies in small caps u.s. equities. we think those are vulnerable because people have piled it on the view they are immune to trade, and we don't necessarily agree. i think some are cautious on u.s. tech given how well owned we think it is, and it is hard for the market to go down if you don't see tech weakness. i think being cautious on u.s. credit, baby trend is sitting into -- maybe transitioning into emerging markets. i think it is on the bond side. morgan stanley, we are at a consensus expecting the 10 year yield to be lower. i think that is directly related to the view we think u.s. growth will be slow what that's will be somewhat slower than the consensus -- will be somewhat slower than the consensus.
this fed tightening will ultimately lead to tighter financial conditions, but that is still something we get quite a bit of disagreement on. francine: thank you so much for coming in today, andrew sheets from morgan stanley. capital'snext, rbc chief economist. breaking news out of china. maybe extra stimulus out there on the economy, but also tesla possibly looking to build a $5 billion factory in china. what does that mean for trade? we'll discuss that next. this is bloomberg. this isn't just any moving day.

germany blocks investment by a chinese company. a stew or a soup of headlines having to do with china. francine: yes, it is quite significant that we see this blockage from germany. in the past, the french have decreed it will that said that none of the strategic investments could be taken over by a foreigner. i wonder whether the wind is changing in germany. the middle of the crisis that sold off some of the ports to the chinese. the relationship between china and the eu has always been strong. tom: we will continue with china. with our first word news is taylor riggs. taylor: bloomberg has learned that trumps administration may more than double its planned
tariffs on $200 billion in chinese imports. trump said that the issues should be resolved with talks and that threats are counterproductive. thatberg has learned mexico and the u.s. are in the final stages of negotiating a -- a tradeina involving cars. as you were mentioning, tom. the federal reserve policymakers are almost certain to keep interest rates steady when they wrap up their meeting today. contracts show almost zero expectation for a rate hike today. traders say there is an 80% chance next month. jerome powell has signaled the central bank could take a break from rate hikes at some point. investors like what they are hearing from apple. rising in premarket

it, looking at my chart. tom: very good. what really matters is our chief washington correspondent, francine, kevin cirilli is not wearing an ostrich jacket this morning. 15,000 large for a jacket and certain precincts of new york city would not be a big deal. is that as good as the prosecution is going to get? it to go over the small change of paul manafort's wardrobe? >> tom, i think the bottom line is that yesterday that trial really heating up for it former trump campaign chairman,, the fort. i think -- paul manafort. i think you are noticing a shift ever since the president's personal attorney came out and started discussing these tapes, and what he is now accusing the practice of -- president of witnessing about the discussion
between donald trump, jr. and the russians. now you are having a recalibration on the behalf of the administration where they are now saying that collusion is not a crime. tom: we saw the recalibration yesterday. this on the midwest, or mr. trump did so well. watch michigan. partyr the democrat establishment for the grassroots. unknown is how it engaged michigan's african-american voters, black turnout in 2016 was more than 12% lower than it had been for president obama four years earlier. what do you know about turnout right now? do you agree that it is a mystery? >> yes, i think it will be a mystery until election day.
i think that is absolutely correct in terms of the importance of michigan. this was a state that was crucial into catapulting donald trump is the white house -- into the white house. sherrod brown, a democrat from ohio, often rumored to be on the short list for anybody's presidential ticket, and the presidential democratic ticket. the second point i would make is trade. you have commodity dipping on the news of this china trade war. ground zero for this trade war is in michigan. it is where this interesting section and juxtaposition of the progressive populist left and the populace right on trade issues are very much on the same page, or something like nafta is very unpopular there. talking about facebook, we heard of these accounts. how does that play into the psyche of the american voter and
washington? quite frankly, there are many folks on the left to -- who have some strong questions -- and some on the right, strong questions about how the social media institutions did not really protect the integrity of the elections in the last cycle. that is the general feeling from their point. then you get to the standpoint of just thinks that is really -- of just the angst that is in washington amongst lawmakers who are concerned about not -- they're not been enough protections heading into the midterm elections. tom: kevin, thank you so much. kevin cirilli, our bloomberg chief washington correspondent. coming up tomorrow, we have fed day over in the bank of england

they will pay up for both the phone and service. you really don't pay $1000 or $1200 retail. you pay somewhere between $40 and $50 per month for the phone, around $60-hundred dollars for the service between data, text, and voice. tom: within the tone of the conference call and all the uproar about microanalysis of ipads and all that, what is the persistency of their free cash flow? is it really free product driven? can ivan feinseth go out longer to a terminal value? ivan: they have a tremendously low customer base -- a loyal customer base. people continue to purchase smartphones, specifically iphones every two years at of their contracts -- once their contract is up.
people purchase other services, including content on itunes, icloud storage, applecare, which is the warranty, apple, which is the payment method -- apple pay, which is a payment method. their services continue to increase to record levels, which has a much higher margin than the hardware. services are approaching a run rate of about $40 billion per year. stillne: we are expecting the next big thing from apple. what is it? ivan: the view was that they expand ecosystem, which would include the smart speaker, which is an audio interface. apple tv to also extend content to the tv. people who buy iphones tend to macs, ipads, and
other apple products. francine: is there anything apple can do to try to succumb less to the trade war escalation? ivan: right now they have said they have had very little affects from the tariffs. they are building an iphone factory in wisconsin. to have a factory in india -- they have a factory in india, and the obviously michaela and china -- make a lot of money in china. tim cook said they have had no negative effect of tariffs. by arew do you frame sell right now -- a buy or sell right now? did you adjust your target price? ivan: i do not use target prices but i do have a bite on the stock -- buy on the stock, and i believe it will continue to
trade higher. the growth and return on capital are strong and it continues to drive the stock higher from current levels. tom: thank you so much. ivan feinseth with tigress financial partners, their chief investment officer on the dutch officer. will -- officer. we are thrilled to breathe you -- bring you adam pozen and david best flour. look for that on "bloomberg surveillance." tomorrow. ♪

on the wage puzzle. let's look a little bit. the wage puzzle is not about inequality. this is simply what a high-pressure economy looks like when productivity, growth rates, and inflation are both relatively low. inequality on balance has ameliorated the wage slowdown, not made it worse. this is a hugely controversial take by the democrat. where are we on inequality? tom: i tend not to insert myself in that more political conversation. i will say this. chairman powell's press conference from a couple of weeks ago, he was asked about religious both sides of -- real wages on both sides of the aisle. he gave standard answers.
when you look at real wages over any timeframe, guess what the average? they average zero. should they or should they not zero?e i would say the answer to that question is that you cannot have -- first of all, i think that looking at unit prices or unit wage pressures is the wrong way of doing it, which everyone does. real average earnings is a way that people look at it. you cannot have unit wage prices rise faster than costs. --.s an untenable economic tom: should chairman paul lori about the political -- chairman powell worry about the political -- of wage growth? tom: he has to continue to do what is right from it macroeconomic perspective. i don't think he has done that. takingdone a good job of

central bank independence after president trump said some things about the fed. i don't know if that means that they will want to prove to the world into the markets that they are fiercely independent, and so that whether -- whether that raises the risk of them may be increasing interest rates more than what is priced in. >> it probably doesn't. good stewards of the economy. the economy is in a state where you can justify raising rates and you can do it slowly. you want to remain ahead of the curve. the only time that would really come into play is if there is a really close call, should we or shouldn't we raise rates? maybe you could see them think about the political implications, but right now there does not seem to be any reason for that to enter the equation, other than headlines for us to talk about. francine: what does it all due to dollar dynamics?
how do they dance around the trade war concerns? >> investors in the dollar, like anybody else, don't really know where all this is going. the fed will continue raising rates, and that should continue to push u.s. dollar values higher, but with the tariffs and trade war questions, you don't with a note what is going on -- really know what is going on. that is the fed's dilemma as well. the best they can do is wait and see what happens. tom: you will love this tom fromlli from of -- this tom porcelli. over here is my fancy algebra of rbc capital markets tom porcelli -- of tom porcelli's genius. --. billion of how can a fed do monetary policy if the estimate on national savings is so off the mark?

is it pboc, rbc, bank of japan, or the fed? tom: risk from one perspective? -- what perspective? francine: a big mistake, not only for their economy but for the world? raising have to be rates when actually we are looking at the start of the downturn, or misinterpreting data points. tom: i think a good way of thinking about that conversation is where are we from a neutral perspective. the reality is that we are still way below neutral from really in any sort of modest way of thinking about this, we are below neutral. i think that is the right way of thinking about it. tom: it is august 1, so do your summer reading. for michael mckee summer reading means he will be giving ready for -- getting ready for jackson hole. what will chairman powell do at jackson hole?

really important -- interesting press conference in india. here is the inflation-adjusted five-year yield in india. here is where it was, here is the crisis, and up here is the high your real rate of any struggling emerging-market economy. we are raising rates and they really don't want us to do that. pow has beenrman clear about this -- powell has been clear about this. the fed will do what is appropriate for the u.s. economic backdrop. two more hikes this year and we expect four hikes next year, which we know is out of market expectations. let's take a step back. we are in your ninth of an economic expansion and growth is accelerating.
the fed is going to continue to respond to that despite what may be happening elsewhere. tom: does it get us into e.m. instabilities that we saw in 1992, 1994, 1997? tom p.: we are talking about much lower rates overall. it's a much different regime. this is going to hold a three handle, so i think that dynamic is certainly different. i have to -- think we have to keep in mind, we talk about the notion of deleveraging. if you look at bank exposures across the globe, particularly to areas that may be more stressed, they have been significantly reduced. i think that is another important point to have on the radar. francine: what do bond yields do from here? tom p.: we expect that yields will actually really just grind higher. 10 year yieldsat
that are going to be around 330 by the end of the year. to 375 by the end of next year. will remain very flat. there is a lot to say on the flatness of the curve, which we don't have time for. our view has been that the curve will remain flat. even if the curve was to invert today or tomorrow, we don't think that is the harping of a recession. we are pretty steadfast in that overall thought process. keep in mind what neutral is. that is the thing being missed by most folks. francine: you don't think that actually yield inversion means anything sinister, but people on the fed do. you think they would try to do anything that they can to avoid it? tom p.: no.
i don't necessarily agree with the idea that there is a whole group of people on the fed that thinks that the curve inverting is a bad thing. there is a couple of people who think that. i think most other people have been mostly dismissive of the idea of curve inverting. i was showing tom this great chart that i have sitting in front of me. i think the right way of thinking is that you should be worried about curve inversion when the fed is above neutral. if the fed is not above neutral than there is no reason to worry about a curve inverting. tom: to circle back to what we talked about at the top of the hour, -- saying that simply wage growth has arrived. where do you see what growth? is a benefit -- wage growth? is it benefits, vacation, salary? tom p.: is it across the board. it almost is not matter what wage measure you want to look
