10:11 am
changed all that much. rallyew is to sell the kind of market. how long will miners outperform? we are starting to see it pick up. are you expecting that to continue strengthen that industry? >> some of that is dollar strength. that is related to central banks and to the fed. that it willing slowly moved to a path of raising rates. at the end of the day when you think about the miners, it is all about global capacity. undisciplinedt of capacity in china. that takes a lot of time to work through. you don't make a policy decision to remove that capacity. while we are going to see

10:18 am
janet yellen will focus on a labor market economist. of the about inflation, or lack thereof? seem clearly focused on inflation. if you look at core inflation measures, they have been rising where theylook at are, they are already hitting their year end target. the unemployment rate seems to be on autopilot and we are already hitting the inflation target. if the fed was data-driven, they are correct. they would have followed through on their forecast from december and moved rate higher. i think that janet yellen's arguments to the contrary do not ring true. it leaves us wondering exactly how sensitive are they to changes in inflation, unemployment, or whatever else
10:19 am
he happened to be looking at at the time. need does the u.s. inflation to surge in other parts of the world? >> oh boy, i hope not. whatever you think you can control inflation, it ends up badly. of of the characteristics the central bank is that they take inflation seriously. if they were to argue that it should run hot to make up for weakness earlier on in order to boost overall global inflation, i would be quite worried about their ability to manage that piece as it gets larger. from four to move two. next oneou think the will take place? the next hike. >> our forecast is for two rate

10:21 am
to believe that people worry so much about politics. the u.s. government is set up with checks and balances. i don't worry about those risks as much. i don't think central bankers should worry as much either. that is a change in the economic structure. in the u.s., they are not talking about changes in the economic structure, but changes in policy. we can argue with policies are better or worse. the idea that it will represent the fundamental risk to u.s. activity strikes me as a little much. thank you for joining us. still ahead on "bloomberg markets," oil inventing today following the fed decision. have we seen the bottom of prices this year? we will hear from the executive director. that is next. ♪

right as we saw the dollar decline in the month ahead of the fed meeting. is that correct? did bond markets think the fed would be more hawkish than it turned out to be? >> on the margin, yeah. i think it was the one comment in the statement that related to risks from foreign economic commissions. baloney point out something that seems to be in the reaction of markets to fmoc statements. market constituents take the and then subtract one to two] from that path. in reality, we need to look at something more closely, which is the range of the dots is narrowing. there is growing consensus within ththe fmoc that the rate house will emerge. over the next several weeks to a couple of months, we will see

more selling in the front end of the yield curve as result of greater confidence in the path estimated. mark: should the fed be raising rates with core inflation picking up, with unemployment at an almost decade low? is it now the time to be raising rates again? guy: to be honest, i see my role assigned to estimate among other things with the federal reserve will likely do rather than tell them what they should. if you look at the three pieces of evidence, job evidence really solid, inflation numbers are picking up, and friendly we don't know what causes inflation in the short-term in an society so we have to take those data at their face value and assume they will be reasonably similar for the next few months to come. jobs are saying yes. inflation is saying probably. the markets in february were saying no, and that is the piece of the puzzle that has shifted. caroline: you are the most accurate forecaster for u.s.
