6:39 pm
over $1 billion five years ago, five years ago or six or seven years ago the term unicorn was coined, there were only like 30 companies. today there are over 300 of them and over 180 are in china. it is an interesting time now. these companies have a choice today. when you are looking to raise over $1 billion, it is on the u.s. market. now you have other markets doing that. that experience signal anything about the climate or appetite right now? i think it has to. anytime they back away from doing ipo and basically market conditions, it didn't seem to have to do with the complexity of the deal, yeah. it has a lot to say about that. i am sure there is a lot of
6:40 pm
concern about whether hong kong -- the ability to raise yet that amount of money or if there was a clear understanding. there are many reasons why it didn't happen, possibilities. the investor appetite just wasn't there, but then you have to ask yourself why. sometimes asian investors don't understand u.s. companies so it could be bad salesmanship. shery: let's talk about the hong kong exchange. how big of an impact will it have for the exchange given the last month we saw scandals related to the ipo vetting teams and their reputation has already taken a hit? drew: hong kong has done significant improvement to the market. my understanding of it, they have always been conscientious about quality or controlling quality of companies on the market. this is not helpful.

shery: big week of market data kicks off with china second-quarter gdp report. it is followed in rapid succession by india's trade deficit, japan's consumer price index and u.s. retail sales. kathleen hays is here with the latest. starting with asia especially with china's numbers, the trade war escalated in may, we will see some sort of impact here. the butt were hoping in the first quarter the gdp was stabilizing, it has gotten weaker. it is not just -- look at europe manufacturing slowing around the world. let's jump into the library and look at a chart that gives us
6:46 pm
the history of this gdp number we are going to get hours from now because 6.4% in the last two quarters, the other 16.2%. probably the worst of the financial crisis, you have to go -- started, the year calculating its gdp. not that much weaker what is showing a trend. also we already saw just last week exports are down again in china. that is clearly you can relate that to the trade war. how about the fact the producer price index was flat. now we are going to look at another chart, thank you. 1.3%, not thatwn much.
6:47 pm
imports, --nes, the we know consumer demands have been weaker, there is a lot going on. bottom line of the second-quarter gdp will show there is a weakening trend here, and boost demand, the call for more stimulus. the federal reserve has made its tilt towards more interest rate cuts and it is going to give the people's bank of china move -- room to move if it decides to. paul: china's gdp not the only big number out today. china numbers, monthly activity indicators, they are going to show how much of the second round, $200 billion round on tariffs on chinese goods is affecting. i made a list to show you what is going on. financial production, expected to rebound. retail sales, consumer may be studying that. fallingyour data going,

6:50 pm
good for the system. to give one example, the main thing trump is celebrating his china will buy more agricultural products from its farmers and isn't that fantastic for american farmers? it might be if it comes off. it is unclear whether china has committed to that anyway. more,y do by more -- buy the farmers around the rest of the world pay the price. paul: that was a curious observation because it never seemed to be written down, china wasn't even sure it was agreed to. if we look at one side, there seems to be a larger political dimension going on. in the u.s. president trump looking at the 2020 election, he wants to appear tough and it is a similar situation in china, counting down to the 70th anniversary of the people's republic founding. doesn't want to be backing down.
6:51 pm
neither of them will. what we are looking at now is not just questions of economic policy and protectionism, we really have entered a new era, a geoeconomic world order where people use economic tools to pursue political means. huawei is the best example of that being played out between the two superpowers. with the trade deal it looked like, and trump suggested he would restrict the restrictions of u.s. companies selling to huawei. that is essential for the u.s. companies because huawei is their main cup winner -- their main customer. but there is a tech war where the united states doesn't want huawei to be the number one provider of 5g and a bunch of other technological capabilities that they have, because they see it as the rightful place on the global technology frontier. for china huawei is the national
6:52 pm
pride and joy and they have poured money into it and the -- that is their ambition to become a major technological leader in the world and they are on track to doing that. fundamentally this comes down to a geopolitical, what i call geoeconomic aim between the great economies, and what we are seeing in recent weeks is they are not the only two who will play it. if they will break the rule, take a look at what is happening with japan and south korea. looks like japan is starting to play a similar game very talking about the world's largest using economic tools, claiming national security measures that fundamentally with a industrial policy in mind. shery: south korea could be buying more from china which is not something the u.s. would like to see. is this something washington
6:53 pm
needs to look at if they are going to pursue a comprehensive approach to china? jane: that is one example of there being unintended consequences when you start playing around with production area tariffs or anything -- protection. anything to slow down the economy alters the distribution of a way a product might be made. with japan threatening to reduce exports to south korea, a key component used in the electronics sector, that threatens samsung. samsung provides to apple and huawei. that leaves international investors in a tricky position, deciding where they should put their money and which companies will succeed in the future. shery: thank you so much for joining us area jane goalie, the -- joining us. jane golley. thank you. this is bloomberg. ♪
