6:02 am
tsipras came to power to end austerity. secretary of state john kerry made the announcement in berlin where he met with germany plus foreign minister. this year the u.s. cap to the number of refugees being allowed in at 70,000. john kerry: we are now going up to 85,000 with at least -- it is not a ceiling, a floor -- of 10,000 over the next year for specifically, even as we receive more refugees from other areas. in the next fiscal year we will target 100,000. vonnie: germany may take in as many as one million refugees this year. another republican outsider is rising in the polls. carly fiorina has risen to second-place in a new cnn poll of registered voters. -- at 15%, up from

6:04 am
, they never forget the vw did an early "madmen" about the branding of that brand in america. we look at equities, bonds, currencies, commodities. 1.1284. is, the euro, we have a smart chart coming up on oil. on to the next screen. averagegetting back to at 22.28. look at that divide. a big negative yield for the german two-year. quietly friday, brazil continue to unravel. we are on the for real per dollar watch. as we moved to the bloomberg terminal, this is what janet yellen is focused on. the inflation-adjusted two-year, the moderation over two decades.
6:05 am
here is normal. this is sort of like i want to get back here, but we are nowhere near that. most of this appeared here is the new lack of inflation. the two year yield is clearly showing that great distortion. risee: we are looking at a , a little bit of the bet on what is happening with other central banks. tom: it is definitely central-bank influenced. we are back appear on a lack of inflation. let's move degrees. i thought it was going to be boring. i was wrong. this monday's word is shocking as alexis tsipras stuns with a good win -- not a great win, but a good win -- amid an appallingly low turnout. exhausted by their current democracy. athens must now implement a tough set of austere packages.
6:06 am
what is next for mr. tsipras in a government that has two effect a plan yes -- that has to effect a plan? tom: he will be meeting with the president of the athletic republic, and he will have to -- of the atlantic republic, and he will have to reform. his -- the review is going to be at the end of october. he needs pension and labor market reform, taxes. that will be done as well as recapitalization of the banks. 50 billion euros, an additional euros.illion then the ecb is checking through the books right now, and they could open the door to qe. vonnie: the creditors would agree it is a sigh of relief, but is it certain that alexis tsipras will continue with the reforms that were set out?
6:07 am
tom: that is a question on the nines of many people. -- on the minds of many people. banks were closed, capital controls still imposed. but during the election campaign, he said we will soften the edges of this bailout program and make the implementation fairer. he has to give something back to the voters. he has to satisfy the demands of the creditors, whose patience has run thin. tom: is greece still in depression? is that how you would put it? mackenzie: the latest data suggests that the contractions for this year by the end of 2015 will be 1.4%. obviously credit is pretty much nonexistent because of the capital controls and the need for recapitalization of the
6:08 am
banks. it is in a very poor state. they have to meet these deficit reduction targets. that will be incredibly unless there is strong growth. many people think that is unlikely. those targets could very well be missed, putting pressure on the balancing act. tom: thank you so much. tom mackenzie in athens. it was a quiet week for " lastberg surveillance week. are you kidding? i slept the whole weekend. 's chief strategist in charge of courage for his company. comege will be needed december. i know you would not appear with us until the minnesota vikings won again. thank you. we secured victory. tom: did you adjust your market outlook off of what you saw on thursday? brian: not a bit.
6:09 am
we put out a piece on friday, midday, looking at the way the market reacted once again to the , calling itsion from an investment strategy standpoint, a fed misstep. we think the fed should have raised rates. growth is coming back. you show the chart. i think now, from an investment strategy standpoint, the fed has set itself up to be late again. that only adds to what has been an uncertain year. that uncertainty will roll over into 2016. we have an election and all these other things going on, and it adds to the volatility. tom: we had a wonderful moment with ray dalio last week. we had no idea the response we would get to our conversation with him. he is optimistic on the american experience, but he thinks a bubble is out there. is your world of equities in a bubble right now?
6:10 am
brian: to have a bubble, you need to have something in excess. there is no way we are in a bubble with respect to equities because mom and pop in the midwest are not buying stocks yet. they are scared about the election, about isis, interest rates, and about jobs. you cannot have a bubble in equities unless you have this type of excess with respect to feeling and sentiment, and we are nowhere near that. vonnie: you are saying the fed should have hiked even with the china wobble and the drop in equity markets? brian: yes, growth is coming back. -- stocks in the u.s. are by far the more stable -- the most stable in the world, and we have seen them come back. they are continuing to show leadership. they are underperforming versus europe, but that is more of a momentum play with investors chasing momentum and qe in europe.
6:11 am
we do think the fed should every's rates. vonnie: if the fed starts raising rates, do companies need to start tightening their belts? brian: no. an entireised generation of investors that believes the stocks only go up, they do not go down. theave forgotten all about time during the mid-1990's. i think we are heading back into a 1980's and 1990's environment. we are stockpicking. peter lynch, warren buffett. it is all about stocks and less about pmi and macro and china and commodities. we are looking at stocks again. what is your number one sector right now? brian: technology. people are arbitrarily selling financial because they are worried about that interest margin. the most exciting thing is wealth management. wealth management is the crown jewel. tom: so you like morgan stanley and what james gorman has done.
6:12 am
we will talk to brian belski on the markets coming up. over the weekend, it could be an $18 billion mistake. this on volkswagen with american diesel cars. this is extraordinary. francine lacqua has a perspective on this from london. stay with us from new york. this is "bloomberg surveillance ." good morning. ♪

for more on the story, let's get straight to our international correspondent, hans nichols, from berlin. this is huge because they have been cheating for years. hans: this is bigger than volkswagen. this is about the entire diesel technology. if you want to have a better fuel standard through diesel, you may have to be willing to accept that you may be polluting more. the epa thinks they caught volkswagen red-handed, from 2009 to 2015 with a defeat device. emitsolkswagen tests it less emissions. when it is out on the road, it pollutes 10 to 40 times bigger than what happened. ceo, martin the winterkorn, said. i am personally and

6:18 am
tom: i look at the iconic way that we look at vw, and maybe the best thing after the emmys last night is in the early seasons of "madmen," there is a vw commercial which completely changes the plot and cast of the show. i am suggesting a lot of us really do not know who vw is. define for our american audience who vw is. cons: volkswagen is a holding -- hans: volkswagen is a holding company. audi, bentley. at the core they have the volkswagen brand, which sells the passat. they have over 500,000 employees globally. winterkorn won the power struggle on the vw

side back in april, but there is supposed to be a vote on friday that will extend his contract into 2018. will that take place? hans: that is what we're trying to figure out. martin winterkorn saw he had a contract extension. when i interviewed him a week ago, he hedged on this. i do not know if it is an open question now, but it is a difficult time for volkswagen. tom: hans nichols, thank you so much. that was brilliant with francine and hans. 597,000 employees. ford motor has fewer. i had no idea how big it is. of those employees, by the way, are in germany. down 21%r stock is this morning. we have a wonderful guest this money to synthesize all we observed last week and to drive it forward. adam pozen's formerly a member of the bank of england. really looking forward to this. a lengthy conversation with dr.

it is the slowest economic recovery in history. all we see is monetary policy, no fiscal policy. regulations have remained very stringent in america, and we have not allowed businesses to do business, even though corporate america has done a great job of rebuilding balance sheets. the debt problem is where the government continues to pile on debt. the fed needs to be a little bit more aggressive and looking forward, not reacting to what is happening right now. tom: the bear market we are in is -3% on the s&p 500. it is terrible. we are all going to die. vonnie: over the weekend there was a lot of focus on to medication and the fed, how it may be confusing markets, reacting quickly to markets, and vice versa. what you said is not the fed's mandate. the fed does not have to worry about comedy performance, it has to worry about financial stability and growth. perspective.

focus too much on what is happening right now. , with end of the day these lower rates, i think it is more of a notion that we will see continued share buybacks in dividend growth. i think that is a bigger point with respect to lower rates. vonnie: you see this and technology, then, because you said that is the sector -- lead, but inill ofms of -- the majority institutional investors are massively underweight financials, massively. that is where the big catch up can happen. look at dividend growth but free cash flow growth -- for mere mortals, how does brian belski measure free cash flow and measure its growth correctly echo brian: the key thing is what is coming with respect to earnings, the key thing with dividend growth is you want to find those companies that have free cash flow yields
6:44 am
greater than the dividend yields, because then you can continue to facilitate that dividend growth. that is why a lot of the dividends increased or not fit that growth. tom: let's do our hands-out thing. the idea of free cash flow yields, dividend yields, this is where you want it. the day, wee end of need to build a case for credibility with respect to buying equities again, and equities are providing income in america. especially given the fact that when you start to see principal losses and bonds, the next big phase no one is even talking about -- we will see people start to buy equities again, and a big part of it will be equities income. we also have values in our top photos. a massive fist fight this morning over which one to use. there are so many good ones. vonnie: very colorful ones. soccer fans worldwide will be enjoying this one. ronaldorid's cristiano

clients that need income cannot find much in the fixed income markets at eighth and forced to find income elsewhere. you are taking on more risk. when the fed finally does start raising rates and we get a few great hikes behind us the clients are going to be able to transition back into safer assets for income and that is where those types of alternative income products could face some more significant headwinds. double line said they are starting a global bond fund that will focus on sovereign debt of major, developed an emerging market countries. what about the investment idea? brian: i do not like developed international. that is all foreign currency. we think the dollar is going to continue to slowly strengthen and the yield dispersion does not look attractive to us. emerging markets -- for the income play, a little bit longer

9:22 am
, and the broker doesn't say, that is interesting, have you thought of general motors instead of chrysler -- there is always a dialogue. it is the nature of a broker. so to say that the sweep of into silent workers order executors, it is totally fiction. they are part of the process. there is no reason in my mind way broker should live by it easier standard than an advisor. a broker touches more retail advisors -- retail investors they and an advisor. i think this rule is very necessary. the republicans will try to overturn it by attacking it on to an appropriation bill, but the president and the secretary of labor feel so strongly about there is i now think better than a 50% chance that
9:23 am
the bill will be enacted. pimm: is there a better than 50% chance that joe biden will run? >> i would give it about 50%. he appears to be moving in that direction. it is a question of timing rather than the weather. you've got to get everybody going. >> no, i don't think it is good. when you enter a primary at the last minute, limited resources and particularly a candidate with tarnish in his record, having run for president twice before, it is disruptive to the party, not good for the party. bad for the party's hopes to pertain the white house. tom: arthur levitt, we are looking forward to you being the new head coach of the giants. arthur levitt, the former

9:52 am
average, new development, hiring market is closer to 3000. if you look at the super luxury market, it is 4500. that is what tom spent to do a renovation. 2.5 feet. >> way to think of new development is we are building a new development that does not match demand. there is a massive disconnect needed and what is practical to build. it is largely due to record land alsos across the u.s. and this convergence where everyone is building at the same time a similar project so we have a high cost of materials and labor. developers can only build at the top of the market and that is the disconnect now. xhb. i was going to say

credit is national. tom, i annoy him for the last five or six years, beating the same drum. it is really creating a disconnect in what the consumer needs. tom: can policy change the disconnect? >> only if it is targeted for economic fundamentals like better employment and wage growth, household formation. aside from that, we are really seeing the result of policy that has been set, a low rate policy that created the distortion in the housing market. tom: thank you so much for sending it in an e-mail peerless and you altoona, pennsylvania. pimm: there you go, i learned that in sixth grade. thank you. jonathan, we talked about policy and money.
