    Business and Market Discussions / View From Australia / HK Mobile Payments / Entrepreneur : Florian Simmendinger - Soundbrenner

    President Donald Trump has broken with a long-standing tradition and criticised the Fed saying he is "not happy" about the fact that the US Federal Reserve is raising interest rates. Mr Trump argued that higher rates put the US at a disadvantage and impede faster growth.


    The US President has also hit out at Brussels’ decision to slap Google with a record €4.3bn antitrust fine. In a tweet he said, “The European Union truly have taken advantage of the U.S., but not for long!”


    China is not happy with the Trump Administration. China's Foreign Ministry accused White House chief economic advisor Larry Kudlow of distorting the facts and making bogus accusations and said it was shocking and beyond imagination that Mr. Kudlow should suggest Chinese President Xi has blocked progress on a deal to avert a trade war.


    Brussels has urged EU countries to step up planning for a no-deal Brexit and warned that businesses and citizens should expect “considerable disruption.” The IMF said the consequences of a "no deal" could be up to 1.5% of economic growth across the EU with Ireland being the hardest hit and facing a loss of 4% of economic growth.


    On today’s Money Talk, we have Francis Lun of GEO Securities and Le Xia from BBVA Research. Providing the view from down under is Toby Lawson, Head of Global Markets at Societe Generale Australia.

    After 8:30 we’ll explore the latest developments in mobile payments in Hong Kong with James Lloyd, Asia-Pacific FinTech Leader at Ernst & Young. Our Friday entrepreneur is Florian Simmendinger, CEO & Co-Founder of Soundbrenner.

    Good morning. Scrutiny over debt laden mainland companies has intensified. China’s state run TV has accused some of the mainland’s biggest companies’ overseas investments as asset transfers, not designed to make a profit but to move assets abroad.

    In the markets, global stocks are at new record highs. US tech stocks have risen above their dot.com peak. Hong Kong property prices continue to rise with developers selling a record amount of new homes in the first half of the year.

    Joining today’s Money Talk to review the latest business headlines are Enzio von Pfeil of Odyssey Capital and Lisa Jucca of Reuters BreakingViews. Maurice Lu, deputy chairman of Sinopac Futures in Taipei, will give us his view from Taiwan.

    In the second half of the programme we look at the precarious state of Hong Kong’s water security with Sam Inglis of ADM Capital Foundation and Joyce Lau of Civic Exchange. We also examine the role of Russia in the One Belt, One Road project with writer Brian Yeung.
