financial correspondent chelsea delay need both and frankford welcome to you chelsea let's start with you give us a quick market check up now that biden is the $46.00 president of the united states there's been a definite biden boom on markets we saw yesterday every major u.s. and x. the s. and p. at the dow the nasdaq all setting record highs but even before yesterday we've seen stocks really shoot up since the november election the dax here in frankfurt was up has been up almost 20 percent and a lot of this is due to the fact that biden is expected to really push through trillions of dollars worth of stimulus and with control of f congress that looks more likely now as well as the optimism around having a friendlier face in washington for european leaders and business says so markets are a big carson over do you buy the proposed a 1.9 trillion dollar economy stimulus plan what do you see as the most important
7:21 am
item there. i think it is investment it is increasing u.s. troops and the interesting thing is that the this investment package really follows suit on what we saw in europe last year this is investment in infrastructure investment in sustainability invest it in the fight against climate change these are extremely important elements we should not only help the global economy works which we should also help push up u.s. growth in the next years now mr biden talked a lot about dri building the economy in his speech he also vald to repair and revitalize alliances around the world what do you make of that regarding transatlantic trade cars. i think we will clearly see a reliable transatlantic trade this will not be for free let's also be clear yet like you said it would be a friend be a face out of washington d.c. but i guess that biden will reach out to europe in order to win
7:22 am
a year as an as an ally against china because this war on terror will continue with a friendly face but it will continue to which means reaching out for europe offering you your baby to participate in this investment plan in the u.s. but the prize that you would have to pay is $2.00 to choose sides which is a very tricky one premier we'll talk about some more about china in a 2nd here carson 1st chelsea back to you part of a president biden's economic recovery plan is handing out $1400.00 checks to households and i guess the backdrop of an already ballooning u.s. deficit is that a lot of worrying investors. i think for some of these direct payments have emerged as a potential concern. of really excessive government spending but i think for one you have to keep in mind how how many people in the u.s. are still really suffering 11000000 people still out of work many people facing
7:23 am
eviction facing difficulties paying for food so there is a need to 'd sort of to have really quick money given to people as well there obviously is a big conversation around the u.s. its debt load right now the government debt is approaching 30 trillion dollars a really enormous amount but at the same time interest rates are still extremely low and we heard this from treasury secretary nominee janet yellen that right now with interest rates at historic lows the smartest thing we can do is act big so given that interest rates are very low that it's still quite cheap to service this debt the u.s. administration seems to be wanting to take advantage of that to really push through these big stimulus efforts that would help boost the economy now and also in the long term and of course back to you biden's team has voted a hard stance towards china trade frak this is will that be

7:25 am
tech giants that has ired the u.s. administration and president biden as well so i think that could be a potential stumbling block and as well as as carson said whether the e.u. will really join and on these efforts to form a bigger bloc against china the e.u. is very dependent on china and has really voided head on confrontations with china so i think that will also be a key issue to be watching the delay me and causing jesse thanks to you both. time now for a look at some of the other business stories making news just hours into his presidency joe biden is holding a construction on the controversial keystone x.l. pipeline which is said to ship oil from canada to the united states and the u.s. state of nebraska he's president or donald trump had backed the project campaigners have been warning for years about the damage in consequences for the environment but your line kill em is a halting all 270 weekly long haul flights to the netherlands from friday after the
