to knock the argentine peso down by about 2 percent against the dollar falling to $59.00 against dollars. in the trade war continues to rage on as we've reported in the scuffle and spread to the auto sector now there's a new moves in the auto sector to report and pulling up to catch us up on all busy this and all things automotive is the cars coach lauren fix so lauren 1st let's get right into the tesla news this week china a ministry of industry and information technology said on friday that the cars all 16 models sold in china will now be exempted from a 10 percent sales tax in the ministry did not give a reason for this favorite treat men although the founder either musk has been noticeably praised in china and seems to be very committed to selling and investing in that market so is this enough to offset all of those other troubles or at least keep them afloat for a while. while i think it's going to help china you have to remember that he didn't 1st announce that he's going to raise prices on all. all the models is somewhere
around $12000.00 on each vehicle and he was increasing those amounts at the price point in order to compensate for that 10 percent tariff now that he's got the tariff break and he's exempt from it he has not lowered the prices so that's going to be more profit which is what they need i know he's producing as many vehicles as he can as possible shipping them into china as quickly as possible however electric vehicle sales are just not there at the demand for them wasn't what it was and the incentive from the chinese government is no longer in place so let's hope that he can sell some of those vehicles and they don't just sit there and lauren following up on we talk about some of their sort of failures to execute with specific plans but looking at the core marketing strategy for the brand they have sold their cars as kind of luxury purchases cars a statement purchase by going to a coolness factor on top of the basic you know display of wealth but on that point how do you are as compared to comparable models in the same price range from other
luxury car makers and have they made a fundamental mistake by taking their eyes off of the fundamentals here so their cars have a theme song when you roll up the window or some easter egg but in the meantime they're cooking on fire. right i mean i think the whole thing with electric vehicles the people that are buying them and those people that can afford them and so that means that you're looking at. it was strictly those people that believed in not just green energy but also the fact that they had enough money and they were getting that $7500.00 tax credit which is now gone on tesla vehicles and then of course your state credits if you can afford to buy a new car most people can't so it's those wealthy people and if you look at the average buyer of a tesla they make about a quarter 1000000 dollars now that you've got other cars in that marketplace the jaguar i pace the audi eat try and see these has a car you're looking at b.m.w. all the premium brands are bringing in plug in electrics as well as all electric vehicles and they are taking a piece of his market share. it's who comes to market 1st choose the 1st one to
show up at the country club saying i've got to bring you out it goes farther than your tesla so it's a different marketplace it doesn't hit the masses and it won't meet the masses as long as the prices are high and the time to charge is way too long and the distance between charges needs to be twice what it is now in order for the masses to be interested and. burned down on the for just a moment those competing models that you mentioned do they really compete does tesla really compete directly with them on features per se or is it really just about having a car compared to these other ones i think they do compete in features and look at audi they've got a virtual cockpit it's probably the best navigation system i've ever seen jaguar has a beautiful car it doesn't look dated they've done a wonderful job designing it making it unique but still the one thing that the other brands have that tesla doesn't is a dealer network if you've got a problem you go to your favorite jaguar dealer your local audi dealer mercedes b.m.w. they give you a loaner car they take care of the vehicle and call you when it's done when it
comes to tesla you have to call in wait for them to get the parts there are people waiting for 1012 weeks for a windshield that's unacceptable and it causes consumers to be frustrated that there's no dealer network to support them that's an obvious case for concern there's also some more out of the news from africa this week as toyota signed an agreement on thursday to build an assembly line and i read coast so this was announced at the japan africa development conference in yokohama and it said to refer reflect a desire to break into an untapped market especially when sales are tapering off in a more established markets such as africa the next niche for growth in the global auto sector. actually it's interesting africa is the only untapped market for new cars as of today and i think every manufacturer starting to realize that words whether it's peugeot or ford or toyota they know that if they don't build in that country it's going to be harder to get those vehicles there and they know that as these countries start to turn around you see that with south africa you see. and
the growth that they're getting it is the next untapped market and it's a very smart place to be especially if you're building vehicles and the cost of building them is a lot less than in other countries and lauren in other foreign direct investment news in the auto sector is investing big in the state of so paulo in brazil they're reportedly infusing $577000000.00 of capital into their plant there offsetting the loss of auto jobs from sao paulo to other states in recent years and this move seems to have been facilitated by some new tax credits from the governor of paulo so where is the sample autumn making such a headache and what is the national outlook for brazilian autos. well there's been a shrinkage in sales pollo and because of that they want to reinvest in that area because of jobs obviously so when volkswagen said we're going to come there we're going to build they build trucks they build cars they build diesel vehicles which still sell there and that is a popular vehicle so when you get a popular very large corporation like volkswagen they're going to come in they're talking about bringing that 1000 jobs they're offsetting that with
a 25 percent tax break from the brazilian government so they're looking to rebuild their auto industry they've got new leadership in their government and they're hoping that if they give people jobs they're going to take that money put it back into the economy and purchase new vehicles and volkswagen wants to be the one there they're offering electric vehicles as well and i think this is something that it's very smart move whatever company gets in there 1st is going to be the one that's going to have the biggest success that's in a day lauren fix the car coach thank you so much for being here. thank you. markets around the world rose as optimism and hope renewed when china and us showed a willingness to resolve their long running trade dispute agas has been. staying lower and the dollar rising ever more higher let's see how the equities markets did over in moscow the roads led by commodities and energy know that attack russia 2nd

america. more than a decade after they split altria and philip morris international are considering a marriage made in tobacco have been in 2008. but out the mars international in an attempt to grow. their international business and avoid regulation and lawsuits in the united states if the drug companies are able to merge they would be a $200000000000.00 giant in the industry with their next closest competitor british american tobacco worth roughly only $80000000000.00 people familiar with the negotiations say that the 2 companies would hope to develop new products in the ever changing smoking landscape if the 2 do strike a deal it was still have to face approval by the company's board and shareholders and regulators cigarette sales have been on the decline throughout the world as if
cigarettes become more prevalent and health officials warn of the negative effects of long term smoking philip morris has managed to weather the storm through strong sales of i.q. us heated tobacco device and now with this merger also have access to all trace growth segments which includes jewel and kona. and the federal trade commission has opened an investigation into whether east cigarette manufacturers jewel labs marketed their victim products to minors the investigation is the latest blow to a company that has already faced criticism for their alleged role in the rise in vaporing among us young people on thursday july announced a 100000000 dollar investment in a system meant to stop retail sales of its product to anyone under age according to people familiar with the situation the investigation began prior to the f.t.c. is entirely trust probably december deal with altria which invested $12800000000.00 for a 35 percent stake in jewel meanwhile the center for disease control and prevention

the show absolutely we love having you so let's jump into that by now and the number one trading platform in the world in terms of volume they are now kicking out u.s. customers due to regulators and they're now joining the a bit max. and it connects all of the top exchanges who now refuse to do business with us due to unreasonable and outdated regulations and restrictions regarding crypto currency so what are we supposed to do now and where are we supposed to go this is tremendously unfair not to mention that the u.s. now risk falling behind as it fails to embrace and adopt crypto. absolutely in many countries will likely follow this stance the united states but you're also seeing a divergence many countries such as. singapore switzerland and even portugal have made positive strides on their trip to regulation most recently portugal's tax authority and now it's no tax on crypto earnings.
on falling behind in regards to the exchanges you've seen existing exchanges and new and upcoming exchanges such as after taxes derivatives exchange or big dotcoms exchange which is launching with negative trading fees choosing to skirt or leave the u.s. or not enter the u.s. and so this is definitely a problem where many companies are not focused on the u.s. now and it is a big. the risk for the united states to fall behind and always sticking with finance they are coming out with project venus which is a stable coin project that will be primarily geared toward non western countries it's intended to compete with facebook's libra with a focus on partnering with governments and companies in order to curry favor with regulators what do you make of this initiative and how do you see it playing out in full competition with libra. absolutely there's definitely
a lack of details right now or on on finances project venus in terms of the roll up plans and how it will really work however finance has done a phenomenal job in the cryptocurrency industry on educating the masses and driving accessibility in emerging markets and so we can hope that by nance will continue to do that and they've said that they're going to work with regulators and governments to avoid the problems that libra is facing on the side they have actually planned a lot of the items that were in their white paper and so this is where a lot of the issues with regulators have come where there has been a clear lock of process in terms of ensuring that they meet the demands of regulators one of the big challenges here though is neither of these projects have really identified how they're going to solve the access to finance issue related to
k y c for 1100000000 on banks and identified are not identity individuals and so this is a big problem where these individuals will likely still not be served and they're likely facing issues of stacked fees in emerging markets as well where money service businesses already have long term an exclusive contract sign and so likely in emerging markets they're going to continue to be underserved as. not be able to really bring down the future with these sorts of solutions that's why they're designed to roll out in the non western countries because they have much looser k y c regulations so now we have a lot of stable points flooding the market now as we just mentioned li rather is also true u.s.d. u.s.d. quine makers dow haven so despite all of these that are coming out the oldies stable point the u.s.d. t. is still the main one being used with over 60 percent of all exchange transactions are through u.s.d. t.
so this is still the case despite all the scandals that came out last year that they didn't have the reserves that they have a collusion with and so how was it tether able to maintain its dominance last year when everyone was saying that there is dead. yes so there has had a very strong network throughout the crypto world through all of the exchanges and a lot of the different companies across the ecosystem so given that and their 1st mover advantage they've been able to hold our on to their the and still maintain their dominance but what i think is that this story is yet to be fully written and you know over the course of the next year i think a lot of these problems will continue to unravel and we'll see whether or not there remains and is able to maintain their dominant position. and now seeing them today it was just announced as a marriage between switzerland and singapore is banking they said that they achieve
a status as the world's 1st digital asset bank so how are they actually any different from crypto capital which sort of finance or silver gate in san diego which serves base. absolutely and so i mean it is interesting to see how this actually plays out and how they're able to serve these different organizations and actually bring in mary. crypto world with the traditional world and be able to increase access to products and even banking for different the. changes are other services and so it will be interesting to see how this continues to roll out in the future and whether or not it actually makes a big dent across the industry. an all time revenue for bitcoin miners has just topped $14000000000.00 and the net networks hatchery is continuing to grow new all time highs just posted today at $83.00 looking ahead we have a 2020 having in may will block rewards. lower block rewards into teen turnout work
participants do you see them at least declining next year. yeah the having is going to be very interesting and i think if you take today's price which is you know just under 10000 if the price were to stay between 10020000 or lower the having of the block award would of course mean that miners would be worse off in the future and if the point what you might see is that moving over to other protocols and mining. areas that are more lucrative but given that even in that case it is still the most stable for miners in the most consistent and so likely that outflow of power leaving would be very minor however given the recent turmoil across the world with the trade war and the economic instability we could likely see the price of bitcoin doubling between now and the having and so at
a price of $20000.00 miners would actually still be better off even in that scenario and i think that's a very realistic scenario that we can look forward to given all of the instability around the world absolutely we all saw big quine digital call being one of the best head to head is that we've seen across multiple as a cause as in the face of the global economic backdrop right now. thank you so much for being here. thank you. and that's it for this time you could catch boom bust on direct t.v. channel through 21 dish network channel. 247 on pluto t.v. for free t.v. channel 279 are as always you can catch up on youtube dot com our take the next time.
