cap ask. it is very strong at the moment. going into next year, they are likely to be less. francine: what is your take? >> i agree. we can characterize this as an equilibrium, where there is a backdrop led by the united states reflected in earnings. at the same time, the trade is the main driver or one of the key drivers. this week, we got news on the trade front, but at the same time. francine: and if you look at em currencies, they are seeing a rebound. so are we over the worst? >> we see the emerging market space as an idiosyncratic story. turkey was a turkey story. we have been pushing back against the contagion story.
if the trade noise can be contained, that can leave space for em to preform better for the rest of the year. francine: do you agree? >> i think it is a dollar debt. the age-old issue. and it is no different this time around. this is my chart, it shows you some u.s. equities. staying away from this 2018 rally. are they rebounding after the tax cuts? , theing into next year growth in corporate profits will be lower. that will be the case because it has been boosted this year into the low 20's. tariffs willrgins,
have an impact as well. strong,still looking but the momentum is going the wrong way. some said they do not expect the fed to hike much more before 2019 or until the summer. is the secret to market stability fed stability? the dollar not rising too much? >> the fed is certainly key. at the same time, we will see more hikes coming from the fed. we are still had an easy policy despite the noise. there is an over excitement around qte.
and the rates are normalizing. so that has an impact on markets. at the same time, we are still in an easy stance. i would expect them to continue and more in 2019. the market is not fully pricing this, but overall, we're still in a market where it will be accommodative and responding to tension. francine: does the world need a lower dollar? >> the markets need a lower dollar. broughtld certainly about the growth at the moment and the market performance which has been concentrated. let's talk about the
bank of japan. it on especially cut purchases of superlong bonds. inspired only ¥50 billion of notes with maturation's longer than 55 years. they're also accumulate at the slowest annual pace under what many describe as tapering. let's get back to john and lucy. at the boj, it seems like we do not talk about that anymore. is the trick with possible downturn in growth? >> japan has been out of the limelight. that has a part of the case, and there has been a little bit of disappointment. the reforms have been slow to come through. how about this renewed focus on getting a return on equity.
jean?ne: recently, we have seen positive news. week will need to see more signs of solid, sustained pickup before that becomes relevant. francine: but you think it has the potential to surprise the upside? , and oursurprising indicators are showing running through negative. we're seeing her signals are forming up. but the broader story for japan is more or less the same. thanks.: all right, now, remember, if you are a bloomberg customer you can watch the show using tv . you can also follow all of our chart functions and mention us -- message us.

the french president was particularly blunt on the issue while theresa may said she was preparing for the possibility of a noted brexit. >> brexit is the choice of a british people, pushed by some who predicted easy solutions. i fully respect the sovereignty by saying this. demonstrates that it would be easy to do with your, that it would help make big profits, they are liars. >> let nobody have any doubts. we are praying for a no deal, if we get to a position where it is not possible, the british people could be confident that we will what is necessary to ensure we make a success of leaving the eu. francine: so what is next? joining us next is our guest from allianz and blackrock. david, how much of a disaster
was yesterday? crazy,. press are going but was it that? >> it does look pretty bad when you pick up the papers. she is not unused to negative headlines. she always seemed to ride out the storm. it does seem that while we never expected any breakthrough, it does seem like the town was definitely testy. they were thinking the prime minister was slightly surprised to meet such a strong words. you heard president macron laying into the brexit argument. it is worth remembering the two things that are still being argued. it is about solution for the northern ireland border and the checkers proposal. and while a lot of the vitriol was directed at the proposal, we don't technically need an agreement on that to reach an orderly exit. the future traded agreements come in after that, so ireland
is the sticking point. sheou mentioned, she said would come out with fresh proposals on that front and we still have a few weeks to go. the whole thing is in complete disarray, but certainly, controversy has had a better morning. francine: we are confused, because they seem to make progress and then there is cold water. what is the market pricing in, because that would be key. >> difficult to say what the market is pricing in, but overall, this is not a big driver of markets. which i think would be our assessment. mentioned, this is how negotiations work. we are getting an acceleration of the timeline, which i think is constructive. however, i time, think there is a tendency or a desire to put pressure and may
hope for drama leading to markets noise and adding to pressure and a bit of a dangerous game that could be played. overall, this is something we should look through and focus on the outcome. unfair? is there more or less of a chance of crashing out? >> and we have got uncertainty piled on uncertainty. have got many different scenarios in front of us and from an investment point of view, you would not be put it much money on it. i agree, it is not the most important thing that is happening in global markets. it is an embarrassing sideshow for the u.k.. and it is going to affect sterling and the relative performance of different parts of the u.k. equity market. that, it does not have a
major impact. francine: does it increase the chance of a second referendum? where does it avoid boris johnson? >> there are huge amounts of uncertainty around all those questions. have the conference coming up. the key is the labour party. they are still sitting on the fence. there could be a shift, and then there is a conference as well. so the other members of the conference are trying to replace may and give her more wind in her sales as she goes back to negotiations. she has a very slim working majority. of course, it has been uncivil. but we have talked about this about how fragile her company is, and somehow she has managed to survive. i will not be putting money that the government will fall.
francine: looking at the euro pound, it has not really moved what does it take for them to move? >> i think we are going to need a clear questioning. deal at the end. francine: thanks so much. our news director, he will be back on monday. our guests stay with us. bloomberg has learned that uber is in early talks to buy the food delivery company deliveroo, a move that would mark an attempt to dominate the food delivery industry. they were last valued at $2 billion, while people at both companies declined to comment. for more on this possible deal, our european tech editor joins us now. you. to have
what is the rationale for over to come in -- uber to come in? >> it is part of the diversification plan. he has got new text, he is investing in the middle east. there is even as well. -- e-bites. uber needs to find new space. and one way to compete is just buying opposition. francine: i-5 take away more than i should, and i know that in the u.k. and london, there are these services. why do they need deliveroo? is one better? >> i would not say one is better, but they have a very strong brand. while is strong in the u.s., they are incredibly dominant player in the u.k.. smaller, but they
are one of europe's biggest startups. our margins better when you deliver food that passengers? >> it is certainly faster growing, so the margins are definitely better. businesses are just lower margins. they deliver high and from restaurants. if you wonder around the city, you will be surrounded by drivers, and that is where the real money is. they are also one step ahead by launching was called dark kitchens, when they take upscale restaurants and move them out of areas where people cannot get those restaurants. it is a stronger on business. francine: is like a pop-up restaurant. do you like the technology overall? >> yes, but it is now everything. so when we are looking at it across the sectors, then
everything is digitalized. is one of the differentiating factors within the sectors, which of the companies are ahead of the curve and which are struggling. francine: are we expecting more from the chief executive? he had to fix the culture, first of all. now that he is and acquisitions, is it because he has felt he has done his first job? >> there are certainly more deals. it might not be the same scale, but if this deal goes off, it is a big hit. we know that investors are not that keen to sell. but if it does, it will be the biggest deal, and i expect more to come in the ipo is coming. they want a good perspective to show investors that here are the areas we are growing in. look at allw do you of these tech companies? does it confuse the way we measure the real economy and productivity? or do we look at it more from
the economy of tomorrow where everything will be changing. >> just a side note, the employees are already hedging their bets. was a personhere with a uber t-shirt and a deliveroo bag. it is about going forward and who will be the winners and losers. that is something we cannot ignore as a macro team. it raises the question about productivity measurements. we tend to be positive on technology overall. francine: thank you all for joining us. bloomberg's tech editor and lucy macdonald stay with us. coming up, as policy and business leaders gather in london for the cyprus for, we speak to this bank executive. we will also talk about periphery europe and some of the concerns of their. -- out there. this is bloomberg.

thank you so much for sticking around. what was the rationale behind the merge? industry, big is beautiful. ryth all of the regulato , there is aowadays minimum to the cost that banks have to -- the acquisition of the second-largest bank effectively safeguards the bank, makes it bigger. therefore, able to support its customer base and generate -- francine: one with a merger be
completed? >> it has been completed on the third of september. integrationin the phase to make sure customer get a similar service by all of the branches of the bank. francine: are anymore opportunities in cyprus? >> there will be plenty. cyprus is a short market. that shows that we are toppling other banks. employeestion of bank is 80. whereas in the european union, it is 60. it is definitely the right size. francine: are you targeting anything? us.nis: not for
we want to make sure that we proceed with the integration. we expect this to take a year to be fully completed and make sure that we are a steady-state. point, -- francine: how will the bank benefit from the upgrades of cyprus? annis: the upgrade of cyprus is creating a lot of tailwinds with international investors coming on the island. hellenic bank now has a shareholder of international investors. investors are looking to acquire nonperforming loans. investmentfor direct
in areas like health and shipping. are mostly quick banks. that provides the opportunity for lending to expand, therefore the balance sheet of the bank and ensure that you have stable and healthy banking sector on the island. francine: when you look at russian sanctions, they have had individuals banking in cyprus.have you had a similar effect in turkey? annis: it has not affected the cyprus in a significant way other than tourists. the banks are ensuring they are providing best practice. francine: we have a viewer

is the camera. francine: even from the 10? nate: much more to tell in details, particularly -- in pictures, particularly in low light. a lot of people i spoke to in line were buying it specifically for the camera. the other thing is that you can once.to networks at francine: please tell me don't have to plug it every five minutes. is the battery life better? nate: the batteries are always bigger in every model, generally speaking. they last the same amount of time because mark things are pulling on the battery. it should last two -- more things are pulling on the battery. it should last all day. it's not expensive within the technology respect.

thank you both for staying with us. against the concern is that a lot of top officials at the bank oncanada were debating whether to accelerate the pace of these potential rate hikes, they decided to stick with their current gradual partners. is that on trade, is the on fed, concerns about world growth? jean: i think trade is the key factor. ofhope to get a resolution the uncertainty on nafta at some point. i think it is a bigger deal than the actual format of the deal we are going to get. firms in canada have to make decisions on investment. do they grow their operation given the uncertainty and to try to get protection of what might be the outcome, or do they continue with the current plan? firms.eates holding back that creates a pretty challenging environment for the bank of canada because we are talking about the potentials of things to come.
it is not really happening. inflation is running at 3%. gdp an activity have been at a healthy pace. all of that would be suggesting continuing modernization. the fed now has passed the bank of canada. what is really holding back his trade and that can take different turns. i think there is a considerable amount of range of uncertainty about what the bank needs to do now. francine: how difficult is it to look at the implications on monetary policy of protectionism? we don't fully understand what the ramifications could be. jean: we don't understand them because it is not only a of theal story, but all global supply chain with mexico and more globally impacted by this. i think nobody really knows exactly how they're going to be working. i do think the uncertainty component of it is not knowing byctly what the deal is
itself the biggest factor right now. that is something that over the next few days we look at clarity and not to be constructive. margin, the adjustment we are going to see is something the canadian economy can cope with one way or another. the uncertainty could lead to people making permanent decisions that are significant. francine: lucy, i know you stock pick, how much does central-bank policy underlying everything you choose to do? how much do look at the fed? do.: we was spend a lot of time thinking about monetary policy because it is the most important underpinning factor for all asset markets. we do watch it carefully. thed curve is one of factors for how markets are going to behave going forward. if we do see more flattening, that is a signal for markets for next year.
francine: were you see the biggest risk for central banks? from the fed or ecb? jean: i think the ecb is pretty not autopilot, but i think we have a pretty clear path for the next few months, at least until summer next year. after that, i think they won't temper too much with the policy outlook. is in thee fed situation where we have a bit more uncertainty. we have conviction that they are going to continue with the gradual normalization, but we haven't seen the full impact of the stimulus. we think it is going to be natural headwind coming from this, but we don't know. there could be more inflation, and in that context, how does the fed react? that could have significant effect on the market. i think there is more uncertainty on that part. the headwind from fiscal --
francine: basically that it runs out at a time when the economy goes to a downturn. jean: we don't know what the midterm will look like, but if we have a democrat win, that could: to affect the longevity of the tax cut we have seen. call into affect the longevity of the tax cut we have seen. these are scenarios that could create more risk on what the fed might be doing on the back of this. hand, hower responsive will the fed be to the weakness of em? i think this is idiosyncratic, not driven by u.s. monetary policy. i don't think it is a key factor. if the pressure on him or to increase, it could lead the fed -- em were to increase, it could lead the fed. francine: thank you so much for joining us today.
stocks in europe following gains across asia. markets is he to be focused on this bullish move we are getting. it has been characterizing most of the week. at the same time, we are still dealing with trade tensions. treasury yields edging higher. "bloomberg surveillance. continues in the next hour. tom keene joins me out of new york. this is bloomberg. ♪
all-time records. china has its best day in over two years. eheresa may ambush at the salzburg summit. dk government promises a new solution. stocks taper. suffers.of japan good morning, everyone. this is "bloomberg surveillance." i'm francine lacqua in london. tom keene in new york. the u.k. papers are going crazy. they say this is a humiliation for theresa may. we know that theresa may will probably come up with a new proposal on northern ireland, but the brexit seems to have taken aback step certainly when you hear the heated words between theresa may and emmanuel macron. tom: especially when you look at the calendar. francine: let's get straight to the bloomberg first word news.
taylor: president trump indicated a trade fight with china won't be a short one. in the wake of the latest round of tariffs, the president told foxnews it is time to take a stand on china saying they are hurting us. the next round takes effect on monday. beijing has reacted by slapping duties are more american products. the woman accusing brett kavanaugh of sexual assault is willing to testify, but not until next thursday. bloomberg has learned that lawyers say she can't appear on monday as the senate judiciary committee requested. she once testimony from additional witnesses. no response yet from the committee. president trump has highlighted the scandal if a foreign government tries to meddle in the november election his issued an order making it easier for the u.s. to launch a cyberattacks.
the european union leaders timed that the u.k., that is running out to make a deal on brexit. the block says there will be a special november summit to sign an agreement only if the u.k. makes more concessions next month. 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: thank you so much. how about record equities? bonds, higher yields. s&p 500, 2943 and still elevated this morning. steepening risk on euro. interesting fx conversations. vix, 11.90.
i would expect that to be lower sell stocks go to cash, record highs. weaker yen. gold with a lift. francine: i like the fact that we're looking at gold. stocks falling in asia. because there's a bit of bullish move out there. that is continuing. euro-dollar, also yen on the back of what we heard from the boj. tom: good morning to the late marty. here is the mother of all trends. here is the great depression. there is no equivalent in the modern age.
go, one great bull market. next great leg in the bull market. the trend is your friend. francine: i have a chart which i have to thank hillary clark for. it is one of my favorite charts looking at the smart money flow index. the u.s. bull market is about a decade old now. the funds, which is what we have, don't tend to rush in right at the open when price is actually driven by emotions. this, andsting bit in i will push it out on social media, is that this question that this indexing is that markets finish strong whenever this moves in tandem. when they diverge, there is probably trouble ahead. since laster, it has slowly pulled away. the u.k. is promising fresh plans to break the brexit
stalemate after eu leaders rejected theresa may's blueprint and warned that time is running out. two days of talk in salzburg broke up without progress. let's take a look at the newspaper from pages -- from pages. -- front pages. humiliateddian, may as leaders tell her heart plan won't work -- her plan won't work. balls. us now is andrew overall, welcome to the program. be close to anto agreement, one day they are not. is this not just the nature of negotiations? andrew: i think it is, and i think the europeans enjoy this process.
eventually, they stay up all night at the end and the deal is done. i think it is interesting. i read all of the papers this morning as a bond investor. expectation is that there will be a deal in november and it will not be that dramatic. it is important that they're not going to agree a great deal. all of the future trading stuff. they're going to have to do that later. headlines in the theater, there is going to be a deal we think announced before the end of this year. francine: is that what is priced into the market? andrew: i think the market is probably pricing a higher outcome than what we would suggest. you have the status quo for the next couple of years and dramatic in terms of the economy -- undramatic in terms of the economy. there's a chance it all falls apart. that would have a significant macro impact.
our estimate would be that the market is pricing in the higher probability. more attention maybe to the theater. i think u.k. interest rate risk being underweight makes sense here. within the broad sense, we are back to school and back to september, back to business as usual. what is the vibrancy of london right now? london, deutsche bank talking about making london a branch. i don't buy it for a minute. how is london doing? andrew: i think london is fine, they can improve the traffic and weather. in terms of the city, a think there is a lot of noise. one of the car companies early on seem to get a lot of concessions. you have a lot of noise, but , whenou look at the banks you look at their net additions -- i think there will
be some fragmentation. i think there will be some banks that will have to hire people elsewhere in europe. the baseline is not a huge change to how european capital markets work. there is significant risk you have to pay attention to as well. tom: i like that francine showed the charts. this is a little bit like the guardian photo as well. i get it. the suits andn, ties and lonely prime minister may and all of that this morning. great, but how lonely is she? is this just theater for the media. something to worry about in september, or if i am an investor, george really care about brexit? -- do i really care about brexit? are an investor, there is a high probability of not a dramatic outcome.
uncertainty over the future trading arrangements, the macro implications, fairly limited. there is a risk case you have to pay attention to. look at all european negotiations. they stay up late at night and miraculously there is a deal at the end. to some extent, there is managing constituency. to some extent, the europeans may think that being tough, appearing nasty gives theresa may cover to seek a deal at home. i think it is fascinating as an investor. there is a high probability of an outcome before the end of the year, probably in november. although it doesn't answer very many questions. all of the questions about future trading arrangements are going to have to be sorted out. the cliff edge moves forward to 2020. francine: we have a viewer question that will brexit lead to -- in the short term?
andrew: i would say no in the sense that pushing forward, maintaining the status quo, there is no reason they should have a big impact on the economy. i think if you have a no deal breakdown, the u.k. walks away, then you have significant recession risk. over time, when we try and figure out what this should mean in terms of our long-term growth estimates, we can't find a very significant impact. as long as you avoid the sudden , i think probability the macro economy continues on the path we have been on. the uncertainty is not helpful. i think this big uncertainty is going to move on for another two years thinking about investment decisions, or if you are a city firm, thinking about where to be based is not helpful. us fromrew is with pimco.

later. i have on important -- an important opinion piece. right now, we want to dive into the sinking of the people of china. freya has some legit experience of the living in beijing. you have an exceptionally important thought in that china has the ability to neglect their households. does the president completely underestimate the ability of the chinese to just wait him out with sacrifice? it is obviously a very different political environment. i think the situation of the chinese authorities has been complicated a great deal by the appearance of swine flu; on the agenda. that will hurt consumers quite a
lot. actually, the chinese authorities are very much aware in a way that they have not been previously of the damage the import tariffs due to their own consumers. following tariffs last year with a further round of july, we now hear them talking about making more widespread cuts. there are really going for this transition towards either consumption. whether they will make it or not is a totally different question. the whole trade war issue is kind of a roadblock for that. they certainly, in the most recent response have been very 5%-10%d with only tariffs on goods compared to mr. trump's. we really see the chinese authorities, it is almost like a role reversal that the chinese
authorities are recognizing this could be damaging to their own consumers and a way that mr. trump overtly has not done. tom: a soybean former in iowa can protest, i get that. can someone protested china? can an industrialist two hours west of shanghai, can they protest these tariffs? freya: they probably could, but we might not know about it in the same way we would as the iowa soybean farmer. i heard your clip therefore mr. trump before i came on. maybe the reason why farming has been better recently is because of chinese stockpiling of these soybeans. back to your point ahead of those tariffs, your point about whether we would hear any processing -- protesting in china as the way you could and the u.s., the chinese have
stopped publishing the data on the number of riots and protests that they use to publish previously. they stop doing that a while ago.it is not related to the tariffs . we wouldn't know about it in the same way. that said, the chinese authorities do have to respond to some extent, it is just not the same kind of electoral cycle we are used to in the u.s. or europe. francine: when you look at china, do you worry that slowdown is so deep there that it will continue into the emerging markets and changes your outlook overall about fixed income? andrew: the baseline is no. we think that you have the new tariffs, a measure chinese response that is more or less the end of it. forecast,se, in our it has a small impact on chinese growth, but not big enough to be significant fofrom the market perspective.
you have a positive and negative risk case. the negative risk case starts to have an impact. mayshort asian currencies extend, there are better ways to do it. there is an upside case. we think with donald trump there is some element of fear. he may just declare victory and get rid of the tariffs and say on tv or twitter that everything is much better. there is an upside and downside case. the baseline is worth a couple of tenths, but not a big impact. tom: thank you so much. . an important conversation in the 10:00 hour. i was beat to the dean of the columbia graduate school of business. exceptionally important conversation for trump
jgb'snk is accumulating the slowest annual pace in seven years. ands get back to freya injure. -- and andrew. be one of theg to economies that will save us from a downturn three years from now? : i would answer that as a categorically no. i think there has been some decoupling of the japanese economy from the external environment as we are speaking, in the sense that the economy seems to be changing lane from the business side of things which is very strong still in q2, but the wage growth is now finally showing a sustained uptrend. for the first time in a very long time-uptrend in wage growth. that to help private consumption, probably not in q3
because we have a higher base in q2. they do have that driver in a way they have previously. i say that is just a function of the fact that we were in a very strong external environment, and have been for a while in china providing a lot of the strengths there. there are currently -- the recovery we have seen in japan has been led by trade activity, which has caused a tightening of labor markets. that has led to the situation we are in at the moment. fordld look to japan coming jobs down by the rest of the world rather than becoming a savior or provider of real growth. the part where i would be more worried about things is on the financial side. in that case could be a catalyst for any kind of asian financial eruptions we might be seeing their. francine: what is your take on jgb's. andrew: we think it makes sense

table issues, the opiate epidemic. we have increased nih funding. we have made our school safer. there are areas we can point to where we have done good work but let us be honest. a almost every new cycle. thedo have to break with president at times when he says things that are off-color. not, those suburban women who view trump unfavorably are not going to give you the benefit of the doubt. tom: you are the definitive gerrymandered congressman. you have lived it. how do we need to improve a process that america wants, which is to straighten out these stupid districts. what have you learned? ryan: that, no matter what you do, someone is going to complain.
one definition of fair district is another's definition of gerrymandered. the most important thing is that lookve compactness and you at a map and say, there is logic. our counties are not drawn in perfect shapes. our school districts are not. there is going to be some element to these districts. having some standard is the most important thing we should aspire to. say, it has been viewed as a political exercise. it is a political process. we vote for state representatives and governors who are charged with drawing these districts. we cannot be so naive as to think we can remove political considerations from redistricting. do republicans worry
about speaking up against president trump? i think, for some, that is the case. there are districts that are pro-trump. there are some that are anti-. at the end of the day, voters go to the polls and they can separate what the institution is from the institution of congress. congress is charged with being the check and balance on any president. you have to speak up when you disagree with any president. some of the trade issues are of concern and some of the things he says. districts, you do have to speak up. you also need to say where you agree with the president, even if you are a democrat. if all they're going to do is be anti-trump, that is not going to
sell well. do worry about the democracy of people are afraid to speak up? then the institution of congress is not working. minelicans in seats like are best advised to speak up when they disagree. tom: this goes back to what mike about thees republican identity crisis. tot does the gop need to do react identify to five after the shock of the president's victory ntify after the shock of the president's victory? ryan: we need to make sure we that with workforce development training, education,
college is great for some. we need to make sure those curriculums are translating to good jobs. 3-d manufacturing is but one example where you do not have to have a college degree to get into that space. the technology platforms which are driving economic growth are areas where we need to make sure we are not leaving people behind and that dislocated workers have opportunities. that is the message that is beyond partisanship. the party needs to make sure they are speaking to all voters. francine: thank you so much. costello from pennsylvania and peter hooper of deutsche bank, staying with us. .oming up, mthuli ncube we will ask him about emerging markets and the promise of africa. this is "bloomberg." ♪
tom: washington, d.c. beginning international diplomacy in the autumn season. andmeetings in bali important meetings coming up. traffic in manhattan will be appalling. francine lacqua london, i'm tom keene in new york. we are honored to begin our coverage on international economics with the finance minister of zimbabwe. his name is mthuli ncube and he begins -- and he brings economics from oxford and
cambridge to us. you know statistics and volatility and you lived it with your currency. do you have a currency in control? moment, ncube: at the we have a currency regime dependent on the dollar. a domestice back to currency but that will require consolidation and manage policy a terms of holding pollux -- building blocks and engaging partners. tom: argentina is not zimbabwe. whopoke with johns hopkins have been critical of the regime and how your moving toward a quai-currency. argentina, the zimbabwe
lesson? country ncube: every needs a stable currency, a currency investors can rely on. the experience has been building toward a stable currency to be issued in the future. argentina has been impacted by the oil and emerging-market volatility. south africa has been impacted. you have different factors impacting these global emerging markets. zimbabwe's volatility has been driven by internal factors and some external factors. we are pleased with the way the oil prices has held up. the other metal prices have held up. we produce tobacco.
in terms of the global impact of global demand, we are benefiting more than argentina and south africa. francine: your country will continue to use these bond notes and the currency system until the economy stabilizes. is there a time frame? minister ncube: we need this to happen sooner rather than later. such as makings sure that we have a full monetary policy committee that is able to move toward a market-based allocation of where those who are exporting can have a foreign currency account in dollars and build those building blocks for full monetary policy. also, rebuild reserves, including gold, that we need to issue a domestic currency
safely. francine: how worrisome is the current outbreak in zimbabwe? minister ncube: the cholera outbreak, we are containing that. million.aised $29 we are raising more from our partners, both internal and external. we have launched a crowd fund domestically, our contributors have contributed. i am pleased with so far how this has progress. resources but the response has been phenomenal. the response by government. tom: let us have a question from dr. hooper. fed, we were talking about the fed raising rates, at what point are you
concerned, tom asked me at what level of 10 year yields, would become a pressure point for emerging markets? if the fed gets to 3.5%, is that worrisome? minister ncube: that is. means that hardening monetary policy in the u.s. would be worrisome. we wanted to stay where it is. the u.s.e are using dollar as the dollar strengthens , that hurts our competitiveness in terms of exporters. a stronger dollar is not good for zimbabwe. peter: as you noted, most of the issues are idiosyncratic domestic issues. at what point does it become
contagion because of the dollar? -- if chairmanll powell raises rates once a quarter, at some point, is it the middle of next year, do you see this contagion beginning? minister ncube: not in a small country like symbolic weight but butainly -- like zimbabwe certainly it will impact other major markets. it will be impacted through two channels. the first is south africa, that is our largest trading partner. it will impact zimbabwe. stronglyica is growing and that is good for us. the second is the commodity channel. anything that has demand for , via china,globally
and so forth. tom: this is where i wanted to go. the theme has been the broader concept of eurasia and the idea of the chinese continued expansion and investment in africa. we remembered, 10 years ago, when china bought a lot of cobalt. with hissident trump, foreign policy, creating a point where china has every opportunity to capture african commodity assets? minister ncube: the chinese investment has been welcome. chinese invest everywhere, including the purchase of u.s. treasury bills. the issues where african countries can negotiate better deals for themselves and control the level of indebtedness.
it is an additional source of capital for africa. in terms of global capital flowing into africa, africa cannot expect as much foreign aid as taxpayers in the u.s. and europe are put under pressure. investment from china is welcome but africa must negotiate better deals and get a fair deal for any investment in any sector. francine: do worry about a slowdown in china? minister ncube: not a slowdown. our prognosis is that global 6.5% is adequate to support the flow of investment into africa and support global commodity prices that impact africa. i'm not worried about that slowdown. we are going to do what we
call the single best chart. we are going to go to -- this is the bloomberg dollar index. it is capturing much of em dynamics, with a big 2014 move and then we go to points of stability and i think, this caught a lot of people by surprise, this dollar weakness. we talked about this before. and does it mean for em zimbabwe? peter: if you extend this going forward, our sense is that the dollar is going to continue to weaken against the advanced economy currencies. , which are em sensitive to fed tightening, you're going to see things going the other way.
the dollar will go up. , how does theis em respond? minister ncube: we talk about the impact of macro policy on economies but also on development issues. u.s. is some focus on the and the dollar and monetary policies globally. any weakness in emerging markets is going to cause trouble, especially in argentina, south africa, to mention a few. for thel cause concern imf. francine: i want to come back to trade tensions. , andere was a trade war escalation of the tension between the u.s. and china, what impact would it have on zimbabwe
and the region? would it lead to more inflation? trade tensions ,etween the u.s. and whoever will have some impact but not a big impact. thatork we have done shows it is going to boost u.s. growth which is strange. a stronger u.s. is good for commodities, which africa cares about. in terms of impact, it is going to be muted. theca worries about survival of an agreement that gives good exports. it has not been threatened and thank you for that. please, do not do anything about it.
you must give us easier terms. africa is a small economy and does not threaten the u.s. at all. please, do nothing. thank you so much for joining us this morning. , the finance minister for zimbabwe. peter hooper as well. congratulations on a terrific summer at deutsche bank. francine, you have brexit. francine: this is after tree promised a new brexit offer after -- after theresa may promised a new brexit offer. we are getting headlines from poland. the deputy foreign minister speaking to bloomberg, saying that poland once to shape -- wants to shape the stance.
it is risk on. battered and bruised by brexit, pressure mounts on theresa may her brexitu rejects blueprint. exports fall to a five-year low in europe. we will speak to portuguese economic minister david: when we thought we did not have enough volatility, hong kong dollar. 0.6% it strengthened. alix: the biggest gain in five years. this is the next effect from those higher global yields and fed hikes. you are doing a carry trade, and you have to unwind. yields are rising. you have to do. david: or because the holidays are coming up, or because there is a shortcoming. i don't know. alix: we take a look at where w
