watch the market flatline. whether or not they taper, i don't know. i think they're bullied into it. we're not growing, gdp 1 1/2, 2%, consumer price index not growing, where is the growth? what are people making? >> i think they'll cut it to 75 billion a month. what do you think. >> i think you're right. stocks will sell off initially and everybody will realize they're accommodating the 75 billion a month and we'll go up from there. stuart: you better turn around and do some trading there, scott, looks pretty active behind you, contrary to expectations. all right, the opening bell high school rung, we're up 10 points. and pretty much on a hold for much of the day, i think, in advance of ben tomorrow. and let's look at microsoft. the stock is-- i think it's up big. they've got a big buyback program in place and they've raised the dividend. nicole, where are we? >> the 1.8% right now.
it's 33.39 so they're raising the dividend by 22% so they'll pay out 28 cents a share and also a new repurchase program of 40 billion dollars, which replaces the other, that was set to expire at the end of september. i should also note that you mentioned occupy wall street. oh, i knew before i knew it was occupy wall street anniversary, there was obviously something going on because some blocks away from around this building, there are paddy wagons, horses, it feels like a million and one police officers and i'm glad they're here and i didn't see any occupy wall street people. stuart: who said this was going to be a boring old day waiting for ben? microsoft is up. occupy wall street is back, and horses are in the street. that's an exciting day, right, nicole? >> indeed. stuart: thank you, nicole. the dow is up in the early going, 15,524. would you rather download a
movie or rent a movie out of the store. shares are down, and coinstar change counting machines, they own. you've got to get into streaming and look at the stock go down. grand theft auto 5, it's on sale today made by take two subsidiary, rock star. it's a quarter billion to make and it's expected to be a billion dollar seller quickly. 17 bucks on take two. apple was a drag on an otherwise positive market. why was that? it didn't release information on pre-orders for iph it usually does. investors are worried about that. nicole, any bounce. nicole: resulting news out of china pertaining to how much people would have to pay for iphones. it's up 1/3 of 1% and i'm sure there are shareholders to say, come on, apple, right? and friday is the release of the new iphone 5 and s and 5c.
i've seen the people on sleeping bags on fifth avenue since last week and if you go to the store they're waiting for the iphones. stuart: is that true. nicole: yeah. charles: they're there now. stuart: are they literally in sleeping bags outside here? >> they are on fifth avenue and 59th street. stuart: now, were they planted by someone with an interest in public it i? i just wonder. it's an innocent question. nicole: ask them and report back. stuart: you're on. nicole: all right. stuart: the president spoke publicly about the economy after he addressed the d.c. shooting. he seemed to want the government to shut down so he could score points against the republicans and seemed to blame the republicans for the weak economy. david is here, and why are we so weak nearly five years into a recovery? >> because we had a terrible crisis, we destroyed trillions
in wealth. the dallas fed has an estimate on what the estimate really cost and we have policies in place which means that growth is going to come back slowly. that's what we have, and we have very little inflation, look at today's numbers. that's where we are. slow growth, low inflation, and a big political fight. one side bangs the other side, back and forth, neither tries to come together to find a concensus, some middle ground to go forward. stuart: now, we've got a fight over the debt ceiling. we've got a fight over the budget and we've got a fight over obama care. the two sides are far apart, they're going to clash the end of this month into the middle of october. do you think that's holding into the economy? >> of course, it's definitely holding back the economy. there's no question. there's plenty of evidence to support it and it's masked by the unemployment rate. the unemployment rate goes down because the labor participation rate goes down. and if you held the labor
participation rate constant for the last few years, the unemployment rate would be close to 11% instead of 7%. and that's what we can confront. meanwhile, for markets, it's bullish, for the economy, no, but slow growth, low inflation for markets in this political fight means the deficit is shrinking. we were at a 1.4 trillion run rate deficit at the peak. we're about 400 billion run rate deficit now. so, the pressure of federal finance is shrinking. that's good for markets, but lousy for the economy. stuart: that's interesting, david, because i think at 10:00 this morning, 10:00 eastern time the congressional budget office comes out with the latest pro j ex-- projections of the deficit. we're expecting a much lower deficit for this fiscal year, now, you say that's good for the markets, but it doesn't do anything for the general health of the economy, right?
>> well, the contraction of the deficit is what they call fiscal drag because there's a fiscal component, which is stimulus. we don't have it, we have shrink instead of stimulus. we've had it for several years. if obama had his way, he would spend. he wouldn't worry about the borrowing and the republicans don't let him do it. on the other hand, they pick some dumb fights and in so doing, they hurt their own political caucus. and that's the debate that he is going to get into the next year's election. and obama knows that. so he'll pile on the republicans as the evil destroyers of the recovery, it isn't really true. but that's the nature of our political system and they will attack regardless from the other side. no compromise. but if the deficit keeps shrinking, we rein in the fiscal spending and markets like low growth and low inflation, then markets will do better.
i feel badly for the 20 million americans who are not fully employed. they're the ones who are suffering. >> excellent stuff, david ko it. -- kotok going right at it. the trading volume is very, very low, by the way. new at 10:00, five billionaires under 40 years of age all because of technology. jason mattera is here at the top of the hour. the question, do the young people see the tech people as role models, do they look up to them or recent them? to obama care, the latest fox news poll show 68% of concerned about their health care under the new law. here is liz macdonald and goes into what the exchange is going into effect in two weeks. 68% are worried about it? >> yeah, they're worried about it and this is a trend we've seen take hold the last two years and people worry whether or not they're actually going
to be able to keep the health care insurance that they have prior to the law. stuart: yes, i don't think we will. i don't think i can keep my doctor, i don't think i can keep my health care coverage, i think a lot of people are in the same boat. one more on obama care. the baffling congress is heating up and it's now ugly. some democrats, some senate democrats are dredging up an old scandal involving republican senator david vitter because vitter is trying to weigh the obama care exemption for congressional staffers. he wants congress to be included in obama care. >> yeah, he wants congress to eat its own cooking by getting insurance via the health exchanges. this is what senator grassley wanted, to. and this is a ugn ugly thing, a old prosecution scandal to make him shut up. a prosecution scandal that he apologized for with his wife at
his side and other people are saying to mr. vitter, no to your bill that would force the pullback of subsidies of health insurance for congress. they're saying, listen, we will continue this fight according to politico. and they may draft legislation, that says if you're guilty of a prostitution scandal you'll get the subsidies in the health exchange. stuart: almost childish. >> an ugly fight. stuart: for sure. and gas prices surpassing the mark for consecutive days. go back to december of 2010? >> we've never seen this. and gas shot up after earthquake had katrina and came back down and triple-a is saying expect 1,000 more days of gasoline above $3 a gallon and nothing tests the sanity of americans like gas prices, right? >> right. >> and also the worst states to live in are new york, new jersey, hawaii and california
for gasoline. stuart: i figured. let's check the big board, we're up 35 points, very low volume. 15, 531, an interesting level there. a big day for video gamers, grand theft auto 5 released today expected to bring in a billion dollars in sales in just the first month. we'll deal with that next. ♪ (announcer) scottrade knows our clients trade and invest their own way. with scottrade's smart text, i can quickly understand my charts, and spend more time trading. their quick trade bar lets my account follow me online so i can react in real-time. plus, my local scottrade office is there to help.

and doctors forced to ask you about your sex life no matter what you're in for. it could be a head cold. they want to know, if they don't ask, they face a fine. and here is my take on fracking, that is hydraulic fracturing. the revolutionary american technology that unlocks vast quantities of oil and natural gas. the opponents, get out of the way or get on board because we and the rest of the world are going to frack. several news items, a study at fracking sites shows far less carbon in the drilling process than the government told us, two, america's total emissions have gone back to 1992 levels. do you know why? fracking, it emits less natural gas than other fuels.
it's indeed climate friendly. number three, announced this morning, enormous shale oil deposits have been discovered in argentina, siberia, algeria. bigger than what's under the ground in north america. you think the russians are going to leave it in the ground because the greenies don't like fracking? the writing it on the wall. fracking does not pollute as the greenies say it does. fracking lowers carbon epolice stations, unlocks massive energy reserves all over the world. it's a revolution and it just arrived. this is a rare victory for growth, jobs and chief american energy. that's not quite the way that darryl hanna saw it when she visited us. the department says that those tarsands contribute 0.01% of global emotion. >> take that paper and crumble it up and throw it away. that's a piece of garbage.

i take it it is a bit lower. rich: peter: this is an examination of debt to gdp ratio, the cbo's long-term outlook, two familiar words from the cbo, ultimately unsustainable. it says if congress does nothing by 2038 entitlement spending will have doubled as a percentage of gdp as it is now, spending on everything else will fall with low level as a percentage of gdp since the 1930s, interest payments will double as a percentage of gdp and the debt will hit 100% of gdp by 2038 if congress does nothing. stuart: that is long term negative versus short-term contraction of the deficit this year. that is the news from the cbo? >> if you look at what the deficit, these are annual deficits what we at annually to the national debt it will go down until 2015-2018, then begins to gradually increase on an unsustainable path.

them? >> i certainly don't resent them but there are many in the occupy wall street who does resent the success, and huge financial gain with their innovation. i look at this and young people should look at this not as mark zuckerberg or others in that category as personal role models. i don't know their private lives or if it should be commendable but we look at the testament of free enterprise, testament and success of capitalism, how someone like mark zuckerberg can start a social media forum in his dormitory that wasn't the result of government bureaucrats and the success didn't come at the hand, it is a great way paula and what young people use today. stuart: 20 years ago, early to
mid-1990s, the idea of the entrepreneur, in the technology, make a lot of money. that was a role model, they were lauded consistently, and the distinct impression that right now there looked down on. it is up to you youngsters to turn that around. do you think you can? >> look at the vast majority of users with the social network platforms including twitter, facebook and the host of others and that is young people so young people instinctively not only get free market capitalism but they are users of it. they have to have the connection to have government come off of their backs and allow the innovation and the juices to start flowing without the heavy onerous regulation. you are right. is harder today in the climate because of the political class warfare and politics of greed
and envy that the left is always using to beat up on conservatives but in spite of all that we have these success stories we can point to and kudos to mark zuckerberg. is a dork worth $9 billion or whatever. $19 billion, a don't know that. i must be in the wrong business. at least i get to come on television and talk to you so there is that but mark zuckerberg isn't making that -- stuart: we will never get him as a guest on this program but going. charles: i want to say also we could talk about the entrepreneur thing beyond technology. a lot of people feel i am not a geek. the yogurt company takes a dive from turkey to take a plant, refitted and start selling yogurt, and so many small businesses out there being created by people, they are not

bombshell. doctors will be required to ask their patients very personal questions about their sex lives, if they don't ask the question they face a fine. i say that is a gross invasion of privacy. let's see what the judge says, judge andrew napolitano is here. you go to the doctor and under the rules of obamacare he or she must ask you, about your sexual partners, frequency of sexual activity, nature of sexual activity. judge napolitano: the physicians are required to ask that question the first-time you visit the physician, not every time. and if the answers are irrelevant to the reason for which you are there. let's say you are visiting the foot doctor to address the bunion on your foot, a foot doctor, they ask questions about sexual behavior, the foot
doctor, would be required about your ownership, and the frequency with which you use them. and gross violations of the right to privacy. the questionnaire is of private person you have chosen to go to, the impetus for the question is a federal law that will punish them if they don't ask it. it is even worse, when they ask the questions they record the answers in their laptops which were issued by the federal government and bureaucrats and health and human services have access to the questions and the answers and can share it among themselves so you could say something about your sex life or use of handguns to the foot doctor and suddenly the local police know about it even though you have a right to remain silent. brings me to another issue. the doctor has to ask but you don't have to answer. you have a right to say i am not
answering, none of your business. i know why are asking, tell the feds to take a hike. you can give those answers, the doctor has discharged his or her lawful obligation to ask any retained the right to remain silent. where does this take us? this is part of the bill, even the forces that love this bill, nancy pelosi and barack obama and the progressives, they accepted the right to privacy in some areas. people right to abortion in this country is based on the right to privacy without the right to privacy there is no constitutional basis for abortions of the obamacare people better be careful what they ask for because they may get it and undo some sacred cows in their world. stuart: i can see how asking questions about your sensuality or gun ownership could be
relevant to a general state of health going forward? judge napolitano: why does a foot doctor need to know? stuart: someone went to a chiropractor and was asked about sex life from the chiropractor. charles: sort of like a policeman if we don't answer that? judge napolitano: a good question. my guess is most physicians are as uncomfortable asking these questions as we would be answering them. they don't care if we don't answer unless they need the answers to diagnose you. if you have a sexual problem is a different story. almost all occasions the questions and answers are utterly irrelevant to why you are there. stuart: a real shocker to me. peter: judge napolitano: your countrymen, george orwell in

stuart: the market holding pretty steady in advance of been speaking tomorrow but up 40 points. tomorrow's power ball that but will be more than $400 million. you have been looking at the numbers. can you tell me, for every dollar that goes in, how much is paid out in prizes? charles: the exact number varies but this is a tough one. so many different formulas but the amount paid out is a small fraction. i don't have the exact numbers. i have been going through this thing. stuart: am i right in saying if it is $400 million it is only
$400 million if you take it over 20 years. if you take a lump-sum it is less than $400 million and then you attacks on what you have left on top of that. charles: according to this article this $400 million you better take the money over a 20 year period and you will need every dollar, it may use a different model but talk about break-even at $345 million. you are suggesting the rest of it through whatever expenses it goes to you don't end up in your pocket. in other words it is a complete rip-off and before the taxes, sort of a complicated model. the bottom line -- stuart: don't do it. charles: $400 million. if you and to take a shot, take a shot. it is a tax on poor people and all that but when members get to four hundred million don't think you'll end up with all that money in your pocket. stuart: new study reveals some

at 456. ben speaks tomorrow afternoon at 2:30 eastern time, and janet yellen is expected to be the person who takes over from ben when he steps down. here is reagan budget director david stockman. two points to make. after you said many times, when the fed stops printing money, we will have a real problem at the stock market. you used the word crash blues suppose we print a little mess. do we still have stock-market problems? we find out tomorrow afternoon. >> the market is fixing to throw a hissy fit of biblical proportions. only a question of when and the catalyst. look at this perfect relief rally we have had yesterday
spilling over into today. , boys and girls on wall street are addicted to their monetary apps that they cannot see that larry summers is effectively john maynard's vicar on earth. and happen soon enough, lasted longest. they point i am making, that he is a threat to the future than that is the measure of how sick, all distorted, al unbalanced this market is. janet yellen obviously is likely to be appointed and i can understand why the market is cheering. after all janet yellen told the congressional crisis inquiry commission in 210 that she sought none of these bubbles
coming, that the effectively she is a self certified member of the double blind, did not see the securitization was problematic, did not see the market was an accident waiting to happen, did not see the gains, rating agencies were playing. so my point is if that is who we are going to have running the fed and going forward, we are in for i think a disastrous period. stuart: not yet. as long as the fed prints you think we are going to be ok? >> i don't think so because we don't know what the catalyst, the black swan, what the unexpected development is going to be that will cause people to sell. if the market begins to sell off, even more money printing is not going to stop the carnage that will result. stuart: what did.
>> bubbles everywhere, we have recreated. >> absolutely inevitable. the russell 2,000 is 22% higher than in the fall of 2007. and the mainstream economy, the russell 2,000, and not any stronger or more sustainable, more productive than the fall of 2007 before the last crisis. charles: you are starting, and in the midst of a serious pull back the market is oversold. >> i am starting from the fall of 2007. charles: what about the market? >> i have no idea but it is below where it was today. the market is trading at 19 times, trailing gap earnings, the real thing, that is not all
doctors and axe items. stuart: 19 times reported earlier. is a fairly normal? >> it is what album of the question. 19 times trailing exactly where it was in october of 2007 for one. secondly i don't know why the market is allegedly discounting the future. i don't know why anyone would believe with all the head winds we face whether it is in europe or china or going through a judgment whether it is japan -- stuart: the alternati is not attractive. why would i put my money into a bond which be turned the two or 3%, treasury bond is less than 1%. was put into a cd which gives me nothing? or will put in the stock market where i have a shot at coin. >> that is a measure of low distortion caused by the fed policy. the a telling the favorites of america we want you to go out on the risk spectrum.
we want you to get into the russell 2,000, to buy junk bonds or mutual fund, you're not allowed to earn anything on your lifetime savings and that is a totally wrong policy and is not sustainable. just because there is no alternative doesn't mean there won't be. stuart: when do you think the fed either stops printing or there is a black swan event and everybody sells stocks? what is the time frame? >> the blacks one event can occur any time beginning now into the indefinite future. the fed is going to stop printing in a small way if the meeting is going to conclude tomorrow. the question is when does the market have its wake up hissy fit? it is coming. who can predict when? stuart: we were moving along nicely talking about toilet seats and tablet screens. look what you did. thanks very much for joining us,

stuart: this number comes from new research, 46% of americans believe the united states should, quote, minded and business internationally and lead other countries along the best they can on their own. sounds like strong isolationist sentiment in the nation, does it not? here is michael cammed, former adviser to the u.k. ministry of defense and former special forces kind of guy. welcome to the program. my reading of that poll is america isn't an isolationist face and there is no public support, very little a to attack syria or iran. you read the tea leaves for a living. >> these accusations have been from russia, a country that has recently unanimously bought into the propaganda of no traditional sexual relations or anti-gay rights bill, these accusations should be back. stuart: you are talking about the tweet out of russia yesterday polk in the americas
saying we are not exceptional, look at what is going on in d.c. the shooting yesterday. >> absolutely. america is 237 years old, the number one political power in the world in terms of influence around world, spend $700 billion on defense to do that so back up its power with syria, economically it has gone 440 billionaires' in the country, russia has gone 100 billionaires', defense wise it as well aircraft carriers, the closest nation to that is russia at one aircraft carrier. these facts stand alone, the data stands alone and is created by embracing exceptionalism, by exceptional people. stuart: but we don't want to use that power. that is my reading of american public opinion. no way on god's green earth that the american public would back president obama in an attack on syria at any point for anything. >> i agree with you but we are
in this position because of the old notion of soft power backed up by hard power. soft power or diplomacy is most effective when you have a big bat behind you to back up. what we have to do is we have to look at the ramifications of using the big bat because we are now in the contemporary environment where military strikes are only credible if they have international and domestic acquiescence. military strikes as a stand-alone no longer become as effective as they were and we can talk about the radicalization of an indigenous threat, the biggest threat to the u.s. at the moment, the u.s. home borders is by non state actors. it is not by assad or russia. we should be embraccng russia in terms of the threat they have to deal with with jihadists and islamists metastasizing in places like that. stuart: we should embrace russia? >> absolutely in terms of the security aspect. they are facing on a global
scale the same problems america is facing and the west. stuart: they won't do anything about poison gas weapons in syria, won't do anything about iran denies nuke. we embrace that? >> i disagree they are not doing anything. i think russia has given obama a lifeline. charles: motivation with respect to syria. if it did in the wrong hands they could be used against russia at some point but for me the problem is in america we don't have the stomach, think how many people died at gettysburg in one day and go down to all wars. if we move 1,000 soldiers, the american public no matter how honest it is, we throw in the towel. stuart: do you really think the russians will enforce this, that they will make sure those syrians hand over all those poisons to international, you think they will do that? >> i can't say whether they will won't but we have to give the
diplomatic avenues, an opportunity, at the blood instrument of military strikes. this is on the doorsteps of russia. let's go back to 2004 with the schooling where 1100 people were taken hostage. 70 of them children, 350 people died. that was created through an islamist movement. they have a serious terrorist problem on their doorstep and by invoking military strike on syria it will spread rapidly within the region and they don't want that. stuart: we hear you, you know what you are talking about and thanks for joining us. come back soon. thank you. ed snowden, nominated for a humanitarian award. we have details on that in a moment. she took an early spring break thanks to her double miles from the capital one venture card. now what was mrs. davis teaching? spelling. that's not a subject, right? i mean, spell check. that's a program. algebra. okay. persons a and b are flying to the bahamas.
