accident could have been worse. a giant air-conditioning unit lifted to the top of a toscraper fell 20 stories the street below. 10 people were injured and officials say it was fortunate the accident happened on a weekend when the street was not filled with people. betty: scary. they are the five programs approved not long after the 9/11 attacks and they have been suspended. the senate has failed to extend the because of obstacles raised by rand paul. the most controversial allows the nsa to collect and store the liens of americans' phone records. we spoke to correct -- glenn greenwald earlier. mass surveillance is wrong. why should the government collect data about what we as law-abiding citizens do and say and the people with whom we are
speaking? it is corrosive to basic liberties. betty: the senate is expected to extend the spying program. the measure would also place some limits on government spying. they are playing the blame game in europe. greece and its creditors are blaming each other for lack of progress. the prime minister said the problem is not the fault of his government. germany has said greece has to reforms.e greece has to pay the imf a total of $1.8 billion. both sides have said degrees plans to stay in the euro. told bloomberg it might be best for greece to leave. >> we need greece to leave so the rest of the country say we had a failure, we need to fix it and people inside the euro will see what it means to live
outside the euro. betty: the greek talks are in their fifth months. they want changes to their labor lots and say they won't give greece more bailout money until concrete reform. and restaurant operator kfc is suing three companies in china. the reason? claims about kfc's food including that it's chickens have 8 legs. kfc is demanding cash settlements and an apology from each of those companies. trash is another one's treasure, in april a woman who cleaned her house dropped off a computer at a recycling center. she had no idea what she had. it was one of the original apple computers built by steve jobs himself. the recycling center ended up selling it for $200,000 and are trying to find the woman because they want to give her back half of it.
that is the least they could do. pimm: she did toss it out, but one of these computers sold at auction in october for over $900,000. betty: wow. maybe they did not realize the value. $mm: the original price tag, 666.66. repeating numbers. ofty: maybe a dark sense humor's. we will have the results of an exclusive bloomberg paul on how i would democrats -- iowa democrats. faces another deadline. make au.s. startups comeback. is it enough to reverse the long-term decline we have seen in this country in entrepreneurship? pimm: and the consolidation continues in the chip business.
this comes days after broadcom was bought in the largest semi conductor deal ever. why does intel want altera and will it help intel? jeff mccrackenis and also chris rollin. thanks so much for joining us. jeff, did they pay too much? jeff: $54 is what intel offered weeks ago. one of the most important developments was when we reported it was $54 a share, shareholders started calling us and said why did you pass up on this? this is a great price. premium.57% jeff: exactly.
the community that jumped in after the story, they are the reason the deal came back in part. it was not surprising the deal got done. it got done fast once the sides got back together. pimm: chris, why does intel need to buy altera? chris: the first is financial. this is going to be that for them. pimm: they lay off a bunch of people? chris: yeah, redundancies in management, sales. pimm: ok. they save money. chris: they have a product tie up. what is interesting is intel is a monopoly in server chips. it there is a duopoly in programmable chips. you are now going to be able to combine those products, the programmable side and the
server-side, and this will be a very hot product for these large data center guys like google and facebook. they are going to use these products. pimm: you've got the proper combination, the savings from money. chris: one more thing. very important. --ir foundry sandy's strategy. alterity is their biggest partner right now in foundry. as we get smaller and smaller chips, it becomes capital-intensive to build out these new things so you need to justifyre volumes the cost. strategy is becoming more important and they need to make sure all tara becomes that poster child to the future customers. betty: you mention this has been going on since march. getany of these talks
accelerated because we saw the deal last week? jeff: i don't want to call it relevant. one question was if intel would get in middle of that deal. this answers the question and now we know they are not going to. that deal will go ahead unless qualcomm gotten the middle of that. i don't think broadcom had an impact on the intel talks. those were going on months ago before broadcom was ever in the public consciousness. betty: you said you think intel and broadcom should have gotten together. chris: yes. i thought it would have been better than altera for many reasons, including the foundry strategy. they would have had more through broadcom as opposed to all tara -- . altera. of intelay the chances coming over the top are low. pimm: if you put together
has this chip combination concept and now you've got intel and altera, the same thing, what other companies are out there that could be added to the mix if you are we've got to combine our chipmaking? integration takes place in the industry almost every day. some combinations i can think of in the future, microcontrollers, these are a must like tiny cpus. they would be useful in the iot space. the internet of everything. pimm: who is the leader there? chris: quite a few. microchip is one. texas instrument. a company that should be ripe
for a takeover. you might see some consolidations take place. betty: where does this leave qualcomm? would they come over the top on either one of these deals. it is already the biggest year semi chip conductor. lead you to believe there are more coming. you are going to see more deals for sure. pimm: thank you very jeff mccracken and chris offbr. coming up later today, we will be speaking with the intel chief executive. and still ahead, a new contender enters the 2016 democratic parade. betty: martin o'malley, does he have a shot at beating hillary clinton? we will survey the presidential field after the break.

so do the number of new inventors. a study just released shows the level of startups rose last year for the first time in five years. there was particular strength among male and immigrants. however, kaufman warns not to get excited. despite advances in artificial intelligence, virtual reality, overall startup creation in this country is very weak. james is the vice president of research at the kauffman foundation, which author does that report and also with us is jason of storm ventures. on thetart with you research side. tell us, when you are looking at ventures, you are looking at every angle.
not just tech startups. you are talking about small businesses opened up by immigrants, you are looking at other types of manufacturing businesses. right? s: that is correct. this is a big tent that includes the types of businesses you mentioned and also those with several people in any sector. as you mentioned, we saw the biggest increase in that index in five years and the largest annual increase in two decades. betty: why are we at historic lows? entrepreneurship took a plunge in the recession. we are still climbing to historic levels. this positive movement is in line with other indicators where we have seen positive indicators. there is increasing confidence and availability of finance. as you suggest, there are
concerns we should take care to address and find ways to renew entrepreneurial growth. betty: one stat from this that was interesting was that among thems, only 0.3% of actually start a business. it is hard to, you hear about uber, every 24-year-old starting snapchat, it is 0.3% of all adults who started company. hard, having had some success, it is hard. obviously we need to be the center of the world. even expecting a couple of percent of adults with start businesses is expecting too much. we want to see the trend growth and we want to see the best entrepreneurs come to the u.s. to start their companies. betty: indeed.
that is a matter of debate in washington. jason, what do you see through your lens? while the kauffman foundation here, do you see it as the highest ever incomplete creation? jason: ia am. you have to contrast the overall u.s. economy. growing 2% year over year. compare that with nasdaq. nasdaq had an incredible run. up see the nasdaq shoot basically 3x from it. startup activity has gone up 10x. it is very strange being in san francisco where every single bright kid is rushing to do a startup and the rest of the country is struggling and i
think that is why we see the split between the types of startups. betty: it does seem like a tale of two cities when you talk about start of nations. technology,ch does how much do they skew the numbers in your study? you and jason suggest, there is massive variation. even rolling them into an index is useful and to try to sort out different types of companies. tech startups, while they are only a sliver of all companies started each year, because they will be driving the front end of technology and they will have a multiplier effect on other businesses and that may be something that is at work, we have seen this growth that is starting to filter and have an impact on the economy. stat fromon, another

i also want to talk about what we have seen in the currency market. today we see the dollar rise to some extent. leg up afterg a that manufactured report came out at 10:00 a.m. new york time. this year we have seen traders be hit by the volatility and caught off guard by the various commentary out of the fed. what you're looking at is an index at some of the fund performance, funds that track currency. we have seen it down month over month for the first time in years. the declines you see over the past couple of months on the far end of your screen. it has been difficult for these various traders to come out and try to track the moves in what the fed and the economy is doing. onther way is the long bets the u.s. dollar. they reach a record year, nearly
450,000. climb here and then we saw it dipped to where we are at this current level. we are seeing oil trade lower. and that's the long anticipated opec meeting. the saudi's are pumping out a record level and if you look at prospects from various oil analysts, they are not thinking that quotas are going to change significantly. that is one of the reasons oil is under pressure and finally a look at the u.s. treasury market. not much change in the 10-year, but yields are pumping up a little bit higher so it looks like sort of on balance, if you look at the economic that -- data it is being read positively for the economy. a little bit of disappointment. overall positive. betty: thank you so much, julie hyman.
