service price, why do have seen from last month is the pickup in terms of rent, particularly rent and medical care. those categories are the most resistant categories. we can have higher confidence to say inflation is more likely to be persistent. rishaad: you look at the other side of the equation, or inflation to be consistently height you need to have some kind of demand pull. look at real wages in the u.s., they are negative. >> that is a good point, there is always a short-term, midterm and longer-term perspective. as you said, the demand side of the equation and technology, which is always more deflationary and we worry about china's growth to slow down as well. haslinda: it does seem like the markets pricing in a rate hike
10:14 pm
by the middle of next year. even if the fed moves tomorrow it will be behind the curve. >> the key question here is whether this will translate into higher inflation expectations. so far it is still within a historical reasonable rate. if that goes above that that will push the fed to a hike. haslinda: how do you invest? what do you go into and stay away from in this environment? >> we are still short durations. for our portfolio we would like to under u.s. durations and assets with less duration, for example, asian credit. haslinda: in china, when you take a look at the bond market, foreign investors have lead --

capitalizing is one of the most disruptive players in capital markets. the cofounders explained their business model in an exclusive conversation with erik schatzker on bloomberg. >> we perhaps fancy ourselves like silicon valley, but really it is because we modeled our business after silicon valley, which is to say, disruptors, what did they do? they identified a large market that was not being fully in property -- and properly served and said i will provide a solution. 95% of our revenue comes from permanent capital vehicles, so we have attired different offering -- entirely different offering. we said there is a chance to be that disruptor, and then we

assets, but they are saying it is too early to turn away from the equity cycle. they are saying equity valuations in the u.s. and india particularly. among the top ideas is shorting the aussie dollar versus the canadian dollar, and this is partly due to the bullish view on oil and downside risks to commodity prices we are seeing in play on china' economy. australia plans to raise interest rates were slowly. having most of the transitory inflation cake in 2021 the market may only have a limited portion left wheaton 2022. -- in 2022. rishaad: let's take it with chinese markets as we head off to the lunch break. they have altered green, turning tail. we have got a lot of news to the moment.

>> welcome back. we are told the biden administration is struggling to stay ahead of beijing's next step. >> let's get to the story with bloomberg's broussard born -- bruce einhorn. the lack of intel, what is behind it? >> one of the big problems is the u.s. had an intelligent network. china counterintelligence was able to crack that and round up.
10:30 pm
the u.s. does not have a lot of intelligence resources on the ground in china. in addition to that, there is a shortage of mandarin speakers in the intelligence community. there is a lot of concern that the administration does not have the insight it needs into how xi jinping is thinking when it comes to something like taiwan. >> speaking of taiwan, lincoln did say that allies would take action if china attacked taiwan. what is the significance of his comments? >> in some ways, he is just repeating standard u.s. policy. president biden made some comments that went beyond what the standard -- what we saw from tony blinken is
10:31 pm
a reiteration of u.s. policy. the u.s. is prepared to do that. >> beijing must have something to say about all of this. >> yes. tensions have been rising. within the past month, there have been multiple chinese air force for raise into the chinese airspace. that is getting a lot of tension into taiwan and elsewhere. there was a delegation of american lawmakers, republican senators, members of the house made it a trip to taiwan met with the defense secretary and

10:33 pm
as a result, i think people have to worry about investing in china or doing business with china. that is an issue. also, what the ramifications are if this gets worse. if something happens with taiwan, how will that affect the ship business? those are the two biggest issues. we will see what the impact will be on the stock market. >> last year when you spoke to us, you talked about the u.s. being the best place to invest but china was not too far behind on your list. is china still attractive place to be investing? >> china is attractive but not as attractive as it once was because the regulatory environment there has become much more complicated. more american companies are afraid to do business there.
10:34 pm
as a result, it is not quite as welcoming as it seemed to be two years ago. china does have 1.4 billion people. it can do very well for people that invest there. but you have to know what you're doing and have people on the ground. >> this is something you can't do, ignore china. it is so huge. how should we view china and their place in the global community? >> title was the biggest economy in the world. china things it is regaining its rightful position. china was roughly 1% of the world gdp went richard nixon went there. it has grown dramatically and will probably continue to grow at the pace it is growing. china will not grow at the pace that it is growing.

higher as this disclosure was made public. most of them had framed the possible sale as a tax related sale that had to do with the debate over how to tax the rich. he exercised just over 2 million options and subsequently sold 934 thousand shares. what is important to note is the option to buy shares at six dollars back in 2012. he was able to fill those and that was between 1100 and $1200. not a bad day's pay. these were solely to -- these sales do get some
10:37 pm
attention in various companies. but really the kind of attention this one did. >> not surprising, least one other lien air has waited on the matter. >> a major hedge fund. he expressed a bit of shock in the way this whole thing went down. he said i had never thought we would let our ownership stakes be dictated by a poll on twitter. he says we live in a whole different world. holding the pull over the weekend, signaling there might be a 10% sale of his stake caused the biggest two-day decline in the stock in probably the last 14 months. a lot of it rebounding after hours. a continuation of that rebound.

10:43 pm
specifically the work with small and medium-sized businesses. the specific problem is when it comes to cross-border trade transactions, it will take 60 or 90 days to get paid. that is how we look to solve our platform. many will be able to come on board, get a credit line. they can use that toward increasing their cross-border trade transaction. that is why we exist. rishaad: that is a very interesting level of analysis. when you look at invoices and accounts receivable and the duration, how have you been seeing that whole market evolving as we have had these supply chains constrained?
10:44 pm
>> sure. i would say the last 18 months have been interesting. starting with covid and supply chain instructions. we did see their worship and delays. there were buyers stocking up. they took the time to liquidate. i think coming out of covid, perhaps over the last 12 months or so, you actually saw a very strong tailwind behind certain noncyclical industries like monarchies, etc.. i would say more recently because of the shipping prices, there has been a change in patterns. we will give you an example.
10:45 pm
as a result, this is impacting commodity traders. many of the buyers and reporters in the u.s. are looking for other best initiatives. domestically, it makes more sense. we are seeing this impacting everything. >> this is becoming a very hot space. you raised $135 million recently. what is the plan for that and expansion? >> as you rightly pointed out, it is a massive opportunity. we are one of the early ones in the space. it is india, mexico and the u.s..

10:47 pm
i would say that i would think you. >> tell me about the challenges you are facing in the global supply chain. is there a differentiation between these small companies and is medium-sized companies as well? ultimately, what is your u.s. feed? >> small businesses are getting impacted much more because of the supply chain crisis and the shipping crisis. medium-sized companies, perhaps
10:48 pm
supply chain's have been navigating as well. they are figuring out ways to run efficiently. small businesses are definitely much more impacted. what we are seeing in the market given that we are obviously operating across audible markets is that a lot of the asian u.s. trade is definitely getting impacted. this continues to become a market that is attractive for the u.s. imports. i think we have also seen some change where customers and buyers are looking at exploring the mastic sourcing. i think the point you're highlighting are the shortages and factory shutdowns. i think this is all a result of
10:49 pm
shipping prices. hopefully things will stabilize. we see our small business customers getting a lot more impacted. >> do you think that india's smes can help india win more trade in china? >> i believe that. i think one of the challenges is credit. i think in general, the macro economic changes you have seen and macro economic factors -- i was just looking at your broadcast before this and you were talking about how china -- chinese and u.s. relations are not really improving.
10:50 pm
i do believe that india is a market that can capitalize on that. they are already set up to capitalize on that. i think this is an opportunity for indian s&p's to capitalize on what is happening in the global trade. >> thank you for joining us. we have indian markets open about five been it's a go. look at the nifty, down about nearly .4%. 4.7% of the upside. they consolidated losses that widened there. it was not as bad as had been imagined here. that is a look at what happened
