7:22 am
is anger after the government doubles fuel prices to curb demand. and snazzy new cars can't hide a trail of gloom for automakers at the detroit auto show as the u.s. china trade war eats into their profits. it's a confusing paradox that's keeping all sides in the brig's it drama on edge britain's prime minister's reason they narrowly survived a no confidence motion while her plan to navigate brigs it was massively rejected by parliament the deadline of march twenty ninth twenty nineteen is marching ever closer and european leaders are warning that the prospect of britain crashing out of the union without a deal has increased this could lead to huge economic disruption on both sides of the channel joining us now from london is james smith james is an economist at the global markets research team good to have you with us james so the prime minister's deal was voted down in parliament does that mean that brings it is now more or less
7:23 am
likely or a no deal scenario is more likely off for now that the four remains that were leaving the e.u. on the twenty ninth of march but that big question now is will treason may reach across party devise to seek a further consensus on bracks it won't for now at least it seems like plan b. is going to look pretty similar to plan a no immediate sign of maize going to walk back on her red line snot that some of the opposition parties the labor party. shift in direction i that so for the time being no immediate clarity but one thing is getting more and more likely we're running out of time and in our view an extension to article fifty is getting more and more likely what message are the financial markets and investors giving us on all of this at the moment do they see perhaps a softer brigs of this being more likely or a no brainer to the top. or a hard briggs's well i think markets are trying to take the silver lining from
7:24 am
things at the moment the pounds remain pretty calm and i think investors are looking at t. things i think they think. some kind of cross party agreement is getting more and more likely to is an extension of the article fifty period so that's the two main themes in the markets and ira but importantly it's going to be a bumpy ride to get our don't think any immediate resolution to this is is forthcoming and it could be at least a few more weeks before we get clarity so i think this collie markets it could get a bit bumpy or before it gets better i mean what is the outlook for that for the british pound which i mean ever since the referendum back in twenty sixteen has been trading what at least twenty percent lower than it was i mean is that growth ever going to be recovered or you think in the long run it probably will be although of course that's premised on the idea that we either get a mole market friendly soft or breaks the outcome all we get a second referendum that would result in. potentially results and remain i guess
7:25 am
that's at least the base case according to the polls as things stand so in the long run prospects of the pound look a bit better but as a say for now it could be several months before we know for sure whether or not no deal has been extended has been avoided sorry article fifty could be extended it's going to be a choppy ride for markets before things get better and that's not good for business is it it's the uncertainty which is bothering the business community at the moment making everybody very jittery well exactly so while the markets can kind of george little bit of comfort from this cross party support idea for businesses they have to deal in facts on the cold hard fact as things stand remains that we're leaving me with or without a deal on march the twenty ninth so for businesses they have to prepare for that then we're likely to a business is getting more and more vocal about preparations they're making we were talking last week's program about the amount of money that's moved out of the u.k. into the euro. opinion in this business is prepare for the breaks of whatever it is
7:26 am
even if the u.k. ends up with a with a much softer briggs's or even remaining in the u.s. far as the money moving out of the economy is concerned it's too late isn't that we have potentially i mean clearly the u.k. economy has already been hit very hard by the brics that process investment was really sluggish through last year so yeah it may never be fully recovered but i think should we get a deal or if in the end there's a second referendum in the u.k. very sure main and the prospects should get a little bit better in the short run but it all really depends what that final bret's it model is and it could potentially be quite a few years before we get there because of course we still have this transition fear period to come it's some kind of deal comes in ok james really good to talk to you i'm counting the cost thanks for being with us china's trade dispute with the united states is taking a toll on its economy exports of forms of their lowest point in two years while imports are also down katrina you reports now from beijing the world's largest
7:27 am
trading country has been trading a little less according to chinese customs administration exports fell by four point four percent in december while imports were at their lowest levels in twenty six. concerns for the year ahead underlined at a news conference in beijing our elite you in two thousand and nineteen were the biggest he the worry for china's foreign trade is to the complex and grim external environment uncertain and unstable factors a stew numerous protectionism and unilateralism from certain countries a rare in their heads. a slowdown in global demand and the continuing trade dispute with the united states are being blamed for the current predicament china finds itself in china and the us are midway through a ninety day truce in the tit for tat trade bill which started last april analysts say john is shrinking trade figures could be used by washington to increase
7:28 am
pressure on beijing i think beijing clearly has the pressure there on the votes restore. the best of their leadership and restore bester confidence not just domestically but internationally so i think they jake really does that and i think the u.s. the. beijing get it here and they will put pressure on beijing because despite the lower figures china posted a record surplus in its trade with the united states last year with more than three hundred twenty billion dollars the largest in more than a decade that's a sore point for the u.s. and according to the trumpet ministration a major justification for its trade with china but the apparent good news there's little to distract from china's cooling economy december's low trade figures follow a disappointing november when consumer spending also fell contributing to a gloomy economic stuff to twenty nine thousand and the trade wars cast its shadow
