9:01 am
target macy's, koals all began what used to be black friday sales today. amazon started last week. bottom line, i think it is going to be a very strong holiday season. strong economic growth as the year ends. the markets, however, start the week on downside continuing the selling from last week. apple is a drag on the dow it is down. and europe isn't helping there's talk that i.t. thely is considering getting out of euro brits are in chaos over brexit and germany is over reflection and here's a shocker one with of the great names of the autoindustry is close to being arrested in japan. carlos allegedly underreported his carling by salary by 44 million the chair of japan nissan and chair and ceo of francis. you saw that coming.

9:02 am
>> generally speaking i am not a -- a big fan of regulation. i'm a big believer in the free narcotic. but we have to admit when free market is not working. and it hasn't worked here an i think it is inevitable that there will be some level of regulation. >> well that's quite a mission from apple chief tim cook, regulation for big tech is inevitable. emac, that's not what's driving stock down this morning, though. >> what is striking apple cut its production orders for three iphones that just introduced this past september. and what's happening is the story is iphone suppliers have lowered their quarterly profit estimates as apple stopped reporting unit sales remember raised prices so the supplier can't forecast the demand for apple iphones we've got potential smartphone saturation
9:03 am
worldwide and apple price and people holding on to phones longer so first cut by a third of projected estimate of iphone that was first report in october. again apple reportedly cut production according to the reports and suppliers. >> but below 190 stock price at least they're down 3 nearly 2% today that's leading whole market lower. i want to stay on apple bring in art laugher former reagan economist. good morning art now look -- if a l is no longer the market leader and he doesn't seem to be market leader at this point then who is? >> well, i would imagine that right now the market leaders have to be the tech sector but i don't know which company would be market lead or but i know it is not amazon that i do know. >> i'm surprised that cutting back production are on the the -- very popular iphones just into holiday season, i thought it was going to be a very strong season i'm surprised they're coming back like this. >> i think it is a strong season i think you have a good season for total retail sale.
9:04 am
i don't think that iphone here and apple is going to be the right one. >> well if tim cook says it look like regulation is virtually inevitable, will we have the kind of regulation that really changes the business models of the facebooks of this world and googles this world. can it go that far? j i don't think it is going to happen that way to be honest with you. trump has made a proposal for every -- regulation put in you've got to get rid of two regulations so i don't see regulatory environment decreasing over next two years that's for sure. now maybe there's specific regulations on apple that should be put in. but i think that's going to be a deregulation trend in the u.s., ands that's going to be very powerful for economic growth. >> so you're not concerned about regulation crimping the big techs of america? >> i'm not concerned with president trump in office right now and the regulatory environment no i am not concerned about regulations right as we speak. i mean with congress having
9:05 am
changed in the house, and with the possibility of a 20/20 election going wrong way, i would be concerned with long run for regulation but for right now i think regulation is nicely undercontrol and president is ding a great job with executive orders as well as -- as best he can with his own cabinet. j stand by or for a second there art i want it change subjects for a moment. the economy -- sing doing very well. gas very cheap. retail watchers expect a strong comeback for the during holiday periods let's see if liz peek agrees with my analysis there -- well analyze this. >> it is an incredible happy holiday sale season i think and here's why. consumer sentiment is still through the roof extremely elevated, because wages are rising rapidly. the atlanta fed tracker i think has latest read up 3.7% year year october retail sales up% that's flash purple inflation is muted and prices aren't going up
9:06 am
much. gas is dun as you said look all of these things that investors are so focused on, about europes problems with italy and brexit china trade doesn't impact american consumer. down the road yes, maybe some of those things will wobble confidence here. but the strength of consumers sentiment in the face of a very turbulent stock market stock market that is gone down lost wealth across country is remarkable. and i one more thing to add pnc bank does a 12-days of christmas inflation price monitor lords of leaping no change in prices. gold prices down, 1.2 pakistan increase in 12 day of christmas gift i'm telling you your viewers ought to know. >> we are america is standout. where else in the world will there be a holiday christmas period to match americas? i can't think of any place else? >> it is remarkable you look at france where, of course, macron took digs at president trump.
9:07 am
what would he give for an economy that is growing at 3 inflation under control and ploit in france is 10% unemployment is is 10% how would he like under 4% yes he would. so that's take a look at what policies are working what leader is leading their country to do extremely well right now. it is president trump in the united states. whatever issues you have with him it is working here right now. >> i think wii in full agreement with this. >> i'm really positive about this and unfortunately i think that liberal media is really not -- not very keen on giving it full play. and that is hurt this stock market i think it is not hurting consumer sentiment that's really big news. >> with the stock market looking at 100 point loss from the dow after losses last week. thank you liz peek have a wonderful with -- >> thank you. you too i have to get to trade big asia summit over the weekend vice president pence was there. so was xi of china. things got tense guess he wasn't there donald trump and a rest
9:08 am
between the u.s. an china hung over this apec meeting in gnu guinea so much of this divisiveness didn't come out with a group statement at least come out with some sort of statement but he couldn't. at root of this is u.s. claim that china should not be treated by wto as a market-driven economy. u.s. says it one dominated by state supported industries in reality is true. so therefore we have vice president mike pence and president xi of china swapping for two days but nothing came over it because, of course, we have big g20 meeting coming up just in what a week and a half or week now, and whether mr. trump and mr. xi will get together on sidelines with with anymore progress with regard to trade issues is issue that dominates everything right now. >> art laugher -- look we soon to have -- if i use expression tension is mounting ahead of the g20 summit not the right thing to say but quite clearly big stumbling
9:09 am
blocks here and the atmosphere it wasn't exactly conducive to an agreement between pence and xi so what chance we've got of a deal coming out of g20 summit which is next week? >> i don't think we'll have a deal in the g20 summit next week. but i do think that the entire situation is in xi's hands. u.s. has made it very clear what we need to have in china and it is a reasonable from the u.s. i think it is a reasonable ask protection from intellectual property rights all of that. and it's up to china to ask what they need. to get the deal den and they have not done that. and what needs to be done is they need to come to us to say here's what we would like here's what you would like let's get a deal done. i don't think xi is ready for that but trade is only thing stuart that can affect every country in same direction make all of a us negative, any type of major protection afnghts would be a real bummer for marketplace. but all of the other policies liz peek was completely correct that the u.s. is separate to tax
9:10 am
policy monetary policy, regulatory policyst there's no reason why we need the rest are of the world to grow rapidly for us to grow rapidly and we're just out shining rest of the world and it is really neat seeing how that's happening. >> it is neat don't you love it? [laughter] >> i love it thanks for being with us on this thanksgiving woke and we wish you the very best thanks. >> my thanks very much stuart i enjoy it. sew you art. let get latest on california wildfires -- i believe it's at least 76 people have died. nearly a thousand people not accounted for. what else? >> now pg&e pacific gas and electric reported now a second problem. with another powerline first problem this is where they believe the origin of the california fire potentially started. the first was in pulga 6:15 a.m. half hour later they reported just this past friday happened in concow three miles away from first one so firefighters were called to the scene of both of those transmission areas,
9:11 am

9:13 am
9:14 am
9:15 am
>> in georgia defeated democrat stacey abrams will not call brian kemp the legitimate governor of georgia elect. georgia govan elect i should say. right what did you say? >> interest she said look mr. kemp won adequate number of votes are to become governor of georgia and we've become legal governor georgia, however, she said we know sometimes law does not do what it should and something being legal does not make it right. but which baskly she said there are hundred almost one and a half million voters were removed from the voter roles why because there's a law in place if you don't do any voting over a period of time your name is taken off the rolls buzz you didn't use it. it whats in d.c. and other
9:16 am
states as well it is not just thing peculiar to georgia but fell that law gave advantage to her -- her -- >> setting up future elections in 2020 in particular wouldn't you say we were rob ared? >>yes basically what she's sayig here even though he got most votes and legal winner he's not win or. >> you can't bend fact after the fact you can't do that. law is the law. that's the way it is. but it sets up 2020 as we were robbed. right. >> yeah. migrant caravan people they have arrived on the southern side of our border teeing wan that. but peel living there tijuana they're not giving theme warm welcome brandon judd is us national board president. now they're on at the moment they're on the southern side of the border. in tijuana several thousand of them will they be allowed across the border to claim asylum? >> they're going to come across border one way or another they're coming through ports of entry to do it legally or
9:17 am
they're going to cross border illegally which is what they're actually doing right now. our arrests are are up by a great amount. over the the last couple week, so we're seeing that they are, in fact, crossing border illegally. but what's interesting about this is you're seeing the strain that these people put upon communities such as tijuana. imagine the drain of resources it that they're putting on our agency, the border patrol what wh they break our laws and cross border illegally. >> but i think it is mayor of tea qan that is talking about some of the migrants in this caravan is bad people but they don't want them. he's repeating essentially what president trump said, isn't he? >> he's doing exact thing as what president trump, and a the fact is, i mean we can go back and we can look at democrats and president obama when he was a senator was saying that we can't have people just coming across our borders unchecked and, of course, once if not political expedient anymore he changes his
9:18 am
tune but once everyone rxzs we need to have a secure border in order to prosper as a country and that's what we're trying to get to. >> president trump has won he's attempted to stop them coming close to the border. he's not going to let them in large numbers walk across the border. look, where am i going wrong here because it seem like president policy they shall not come in -- is working. >> you're not going wrong, and, in fact, thank goodness that we do have a president that is working as hard as he is to try to secure our border if we didn't have that, we would have pure chaos and again, border patrol agents are extremely grateful for what this president is doing. >> is there an expedited process to claim asylum? >> there's not but process allows them to gain system and that has to change if our congress doesn't step up, and if they don't change the laws, we're going to continue to deal request this. i'm going to continue to come on your show which i like you've got that great smile.

we've got 30 seconds to go open this market on monday morning. may i reminding you last week dow was down 2% it was a pretty bad week for dow went back down
9:30 am
there. bad week for nasdaq as well. the bottom line for market last week was -- big tech took it on the chin. as oil was fall, as gas was falling, big techs took it on chin and overall market came down. what's a going to happen this monday morning well frankly we're expecting another loss at the opening bell and opening of trading now 9:30 off we go. where are we going going down heading south in very, very early going not always dow 30 have opened at this point but right now we're off 34, say 35 points it is a fractional loss not as big a loss as we were expecting. okay got that. how about the s&p? how's that doing? about price of gasoline show me price it is down about 6 points that's not much of a loss -- can owe show me nasdaq down -- kind of about quarter with of one percent there nasdaq is down a third of one percent so bottom line down across board here's
9:31 am
why. we've got big tech on the downside this morning. look at this, with all of them down except microsoft facebook is off 2 bucks amazon down 13, apple holding right there at 190. google is down just a tiny fraction as i said microsoft is pup a quarter at 108. all right big day today, jeff seeger is us so is elizabeth macdonald and ashley webb stef i have to start with apple facing lower demand for iphone. some supply chain issues, keith, i'm surprised at this because i thought they would have a strong fourth quarter with their apple iphones you expect a bounceback? >> no i think the stock will drop and find a little bit of support but i have an outside number of even 150 a share before the real buying comes back. >> why what was the big, big problem here? what? >> it is the psychological adjustment between the lack of iphone data which many analysts
9:32 am
have fixated on for years in new service what is worth billions. j now a l chief tim cook he says that regulation is inevitable for big tech companies. jeff seeger do you think it will be the kind of regulation which will really upset business model of a facebook and google? >> i do. and this turns their business model upside down. keep in mind that tech companies drop the ball. they failed to regulate themselves and they opened the door for the government to come in, government is going to come in and they're going to greatly, greatly inflict a lot of regulation are that will reduce their margins drastically this is a very, very bad thing for technology. >> look at facebook right now. it is become to 137. i'm not sure where high was for that well over 200 a now you're 137 down 1.7%. amazon is down 17 apple is at 189 just dropped below 190 you

9:34 am
from company is and dropped the ball and not put it on sheryl sandberg and put it on himself and start taking action to regulate themselves to try to keep the government at bay. because if not, i agree with keith. they have more downside if they don't do something about it. >> here's the the question he owns there's little accountability for mark zuckerberg incentive wise because owns 60% of the voting shares so should congress step in and change security law to ka the am of voting shares -- of chairman or ceo can own? you know what i snow and >> that would be a long-term process. >> how do you change that because he really dictates what's going on -- >> we're talking about he's not letting go of the reigns of facebook. i think we might as well just forget it. he's not going to do it. he wants reigns of facebook even if it means the stock is going -- >> last word to you on facebook -- >> jeff absolutely correct he wants reigns and that's the problem because savvy executive would step up a ingo i made a mistake here's how we fix it but -- casting blame never work.
9:35 am
been doing politic tour for 12 years and irritating frankly. >> exactly in the speak -- never said a conviction. premarket it was at about 140 now you're at 135 now and falling as we speak down 2.5%. interesting -- >> yes. huge funds are dumping it some hedge funds. looks like it check board now down 80 points in early going that's a third of one percent. now where's the price of oil this morning? big tumble recently holding at just holding at 56 dollarss a barrel. it is down -- and look at the price of gas, this is good news for people like me but how about market it is at the 262 national average down 40 straight days. now let's couple that to decline in price of ga with retailers already getting big head start on black friday they're coming in with all kind of discounts all over the place. cheaps gas big discounts at retailers going to be a wonderful holiday isn't it?
9:36 am
>> you're very joyful -- [laughter] i don't see it that way. i think, i think what i see is there is an inventory issue mark my words when i tell you there's an inventory issue at places like facebook. i think there was a lot of optimism going into this season. they have to -- i'm sorry amazon. they had to start the sales early to deal with some of the -- put some of the inventory problems that they're having and trying to move inventory out by having sales. >> a wonderful time to be alive. >> for the consumer we're going to get a lot of deals but it shows that if they start early they need to deal with inventory. >> keith coming to this, i'm saying it is a wonderful holiday season cheap gas, cheap discounts all over the place what had say you? >> you know, that's cent but to jeff's point i worry about the consumer debt because to all of this as my is grown we're now talking about 13.7 trillion dollars in debt that's 800 billion dollars high per --
9:37 am
than it was at the beginning of financial crisis i think my memory is right 837 or something. but affects i worry about availability of debt fueling this versus flush consumers. >> they're wrong a different holiday. their tax cuts already -- that's the problem they spent them already going into the holiday season. >> happy monday. now their days are away from cheap gas. >> they're confident in economy job market is a strong as it has been forever and wages go up so there's a reason for optimism. jeff. >> i have another interesting story okay, this is a good one. united health care largest insurer, it is incorporated the apple watch into its worst place wellness program i hear you, keith i'll get you in a second hold on. you buy a l watch u and h pay for it if you hit daily afnght goal what's wrong with that? this is a brand new use for wearable computers.

9:39 am
do you think health insurance companies are going to take that information and lower our health care premiums with it? they're not going to do it but raise our health care premiums because that's their business model. but you have a free apple watch out of the deal. >> that apple watch -- it is their idea of innovation i think that apple watch causes more anxiety to set e-mails. >> i'm determined to do something positive i don't know what -- why am i doing this story if i want to be positive? includings head of the house financial services committee -- maxine waters going after global banks. big fines coming? >> maxine waters will break anything she touches and break sector overrelgted to begin with. >> she did you want have power to do that. but my thought on this one. she doesn't have power to break them. >> i don't think she did you, but you know what she's got a very powerful voice and she's also got trump derangement syndrome so she's going after banks hard just to get at trump i don't know if this is good for
9:40 am
anybody. >> china trade talks, break down keith you're our asia watcher let's suppose that the talk break down, the before or during or right after the meeting with trump and xi does market go down big time? >> you know i don't know, i think that's already been priced in that it is not going to happen but opposite will be truth and i believe they're working very hard behind scenes. if there's any surprise or any kind of agreement i think that markets take off sharply higherrer. >> you agree with that jeff? >> i think there's overopt mism and no agreement any soon. i've been negative this whole shows. but reality zerosome game someone has to win or lose and i don't think china will back down that. >> a guy walked up to me while i was eating lunch.

it is not at the moment who is? >> i think going forward for the next two to three years we will slowly see amazon and companies like google become the market leaders in tech. mainly due to work they've done in ai space you've seen amazon begin through a lease they're completely cashierless grocery stores we're seeing google begin to in mass roll out self-driving cars. these things have very monumental impacts on the economy and the work force and then also their top line revenues. >> ai then promotes amazon and google makes them the leaders of the pack again that's very interest, john. and you spoke about self-driving cars there. i know that's an area that you know about. tell me, when do we actually see them on the road in large numbers? the journal says they're hitting a lot of road blocks with local authorities. they can't get them on the road. >> yes. great question what's
9:47 am
interesting is that -- when i spend my time in you know northern california, and palo alto for example i was there two weeks ago i look over my shoulder as i'm driving around in my own rental car, and i see google self-driving cars everywhere. and in the last months. wit a second -- really? you're up in the bay area are. san francisco they're on the road you see a lot of them no driver bachelor's degree the wheel, none. historically a driver behind the wheel required by local regulations even though they have been driving themselves around, however, in the last month, in fact just last few weeks, in the palo alto area it has now been fully legalized for google alone so there's a first company. to now get these cars on the the road as of a few weeks ago. in full self-driving capable with no driver in the driver's side and what's more interesting about this is google
9:48 am
self-driving division wamo has already driven 10 million miles completely autonomistly with no driver intervention and 25 cds across the u.s. and that's with zero accidents. so -- i think the reason we're not seeing this a whole lot is because normal riders haven't begun to interact with these vehicles a whole lot. but in reality google -- goggle self-driving division has now released a slew of data on not only how many miles these cars have driven but also their accident rates which is remarkably remarkably well. >> opening of a whole new world to our viewers we didn't know this was whatting and appreciate you telling us what's gong on there. god stuff john come back soon. okay thank you very much young man. now where's the market? we open with with a loss of about 100 points and come back we're down about 47. and we've got big news for parents. there's a new drug maybe coming on market to treat peanut

9:53 am
of one percent. look at facebook, new warnings about a holiday pyramid scheme on that site suzanne lee what's beginning on? >> actually illegal pyramid scheme called gift exchange that's circulating right now on facebook basically what it advertises is you give one gift, you give -- get 30 gifts back in exchange so too good to be true it probably is in this case because how it work is they're advertising right now and particularly across facebook you basically six people subscribe and for every person that subscribed they ask for six friends to pass a gift on to. so you know it's a spammy way to basically make money and it is circulates in different it shall in different cases each and every year but this year it is called secret sister watch out for it. >> like old fashioned chain letter that's what it is. suzanne thanks very much. we'll be back to you. thank you. a new peanut allergy drug looks promisings.
9:54 am
dr. marc siegel is with us. dock for people who actually use this drug in the test clinical trials, for people who took it, what was the success rate? >> two-thirds. which if you have a peanut allergy that's actually really good news. this is a really well done trial where they have one placebo group one non. two groups of over 300 people multicenter trial published in new england journal of medicine which i love it is coupling out tomorrow. it shows big success rate that what had it is, what this drug is, is giving tiny bit of peanuts to people who are allergic to peanuts one out of 50 children are allergic to peanuts. one out of 50 now it is tripled over the past decade so this is a huge problem, peanuts are number one cause of risk of death in young children of food allergies. number one. >> a, immune is company that's putting it -- why is their stock down 7.?
9:55 am
that's what it looks like to me? >> it should comp from this news but drug is called a-10 1 there's a downside to this. if upside is, if you have -- exposed to amount a of two peanuts two peanut and this drug works you can have that exposure and you no longer going to have a severe allergy i'm not telling anyone out there if they took the drug like this to take peanuts to eat peanuts oh now i can with have peanuts you still can't have peanuts but might not have allergy reaction if you were exposed but you don't know for sure and 14% of the people in this trial that got the drug ended up needing that. so this is a drug that would have to carefully be given under a physician's guidance. not something you can just run to the pharmacy with. it could be overused some progress. i'm excited about this small amount of peanuts exposed to someone with a peanut allergy. >> state attorney general says cv cringes and walgreens played

big role in ep i opioid can pharmacies be blamed for this? >> before i started research aring it this morning i would have said no because you know me i come on show here and talk about physicians being responsible for the 200 million ohm i did precipitations a year. but when i looked into this a little bit i kind of understand what pam pawn did is doing thera lot of time it is a fake patient it was a mill of prescriptions she's trying to crack down on cvs and wall groans that gave it out without checking it so i think that's legitimate. >> state has sued thank you very much doc. new study from university of pennsylvania shows a distinct link between facebook and depression. interesting my take on that, coming up next.

stuart: link here, that's leading people to walk away from facebook, isn't it? >> let me give you an example, i think facebook has a trouble with depression like mcdonal has a problem with obesity, fast-food, quick-served restaurant, super-size me. facebook will have to confront the same kinds of things. social media can be fine in moderation, what we are seeing people using it too much and ending up with depression. stuart: if you're a youngster, 20 or 30-something and you're reading facebook and getting messages from friends and family, they are doing just fine. >> fear of missing out. fomo, that's the phrase, everybody else is having a great time and i'm sitting home alone. it very much can lead to those types of anxieties being amplified. stuart: that would self-regulate because people would walk away from it if they are getting anxiety or depression, they'll walk away, that's self-regulation. >> that i think is the bigger concern, you're sitting home on friday night and you're sitting

stuart: not quite the low of the day but we are down, down about 1.93%, that translates to 236 points to the downside. frankly most is because of the sharp decline yet again in big tech, i should tell you that the nasdaq is down nearly 2%, very significant drop there again. now between cheap gas and what's shaping up to be a solid holiday shopping season, i think we could see a very strong fourth quarter economically, that's my position, andy puzder is with us, former restaurant ceo, capitalist comeback, do you see it my way, andy, i think it's a very strong fourth quarter, what do you say? >> i think it's going to be strong as well.
10:44 am
in fact, the atlanta fed has gdp now projection model, they are projecting 2.8gdp growth in the fourth quarter, if that's true 3.2gdp growth this year, we are looking toward strong fourth quarter, consumer spending and it'll be fine. stuart: i'm sorry 2.8% if that's what we get in the fourth that doesn't make it for me, i want 3, 4% growth, why is -- look, in the second quarter we were 4 and in the third quarter 3 and change, why are we dropping 2% when we have cheap gas, strong shopping, holidays, what's going on? >> that's the atlanta fed's prediction, even if we are right that's 3% in the year which is huge, it could be much better, with cheap gas and holidays coming up. since the withholding rates were reduced in february, we've had
10:45 am
four tenths of a percent increase every month including last month in consumer spending, that's very healthy increases and it will definitely continue through the end of the year so i think we will have a great holiday season, we could be better than 2.8% but if we just do that it'll be the best year that we've had in over decade. stuart: okay, can the democrats now that they control the house, can they put a cap on booming economy? >> obviously they can't before the end of the year, next year what they could -- they can't do much on their own. you have to get bills through the senate and the president has to sign bills but what they could do is they could stop the president from doing further things through the legislature to advance economic growth such as further tax cuts or sensible policies to reduce the deficit, the democrats, they will negotiate over issues like spending, like the budget which absolutely could be a drag on -- on further growth, but the president, remember president

obama said, i've got a phone and i've got a pen, well, he was wrong, he had a phone and he had a pencil, this president has eraser and he can continue to eliminate regulation which is will further drive economic growth but it would be great if we had republicans in there to pass some laws. stuart: the problem is that the economy may need another shot in the arm, we had tax cuts that took effect earlier this year, that worked wonders for us, 3%, 4% for the year, we need more juice and with the democrats running the house we probably won't get it. >> no, we probably won't, the big problem really is we are not able to juice it on the legislative end, but we've got the fed continuing to increase interest rates which is, you know, home builder sentiment is way down which is having impact on the market today, interest rates go up it'll drive consuming spending down, we have pressure from the fed to try and keep inflation down but we've kind of lost an arrow in our
10:47 am
quiver with respect to getting legislation through because of change of control of the house. stuart: i think the fed should lay off interest rates because i don't think we have an inflation problem and i see the year on the 10-year treasury this morning 3.08, it was 3.25 not too long ago, what do you say? >> neither do i, we are finally beginning to see working-class americans get benefits from the economic boom, you know, if you look at how weekly earnings have increased under president obama versus president trump. compare last 24 months, weekly earnings up 40% and since tax cuts they are up 76%, we are finally getting money into the hands of consumers, let's not taking away by increasing interest rates and driving economic growth to keep inflation which is already under control under even more control. doesn't make a lot of sense. statute stuart $2 gas works

10:54 am
audio recording of his killing, he's sticking with the saudis. >> yeah, he didn't dispute that the tape may be accurate, we don't know that it's authentic or not but wasn't pleasant or sounding experience, the administration has been tough on saudi arabia already. it's harder than in cold war, we sanctioned sady allies and he's not turning the other way at this but he realizes saudis are very important ally in particular the fight against iran for dominance in the middle east. stuart: the president can't have any choice, you can't say we have to go and then we -- you can't say that? >> right, first of all it would be calling for something that won't happen, the saudis will died who their own rulers, the system will decide who the ruler is, it's important to keep this in perspective, you saw which country locks upmost journalists it's not saudi arabia, it's turkey, erdogan, the man who is making the most of this for the

own regional advantage and struggle with the saudis, if you look at other allies, eduardo duterte in the philippines and iranian regime, if you say the wrong thing you will go to prison otherwise they will lynch you. stuart: obviously calls for concern here, duterte in the philippines extra judicial killings, jamal khashoggi killed in the order of saudi power structure, it's a new era, isn't it? makes people feel uncomfortable and makes them feel maybe we should have stronger response, we are the shining light on the hill, aren't we? >> we are, but i think our response has been strong, we can't -- if we take a jimmy carter approach an turn back on allies because we don't like some of what they do, we did that with iran in late 1970's
10:56 am
and we are still dealing with the consequences now, if you look at the history of u.s. alliance with dictators as jim circumstance patrick called them, reagan un ambassador, we can put pressure to evolve over time and we is that true happen with military dictatorships that became democracy that respect the rule of law. philippines is having a break from that. that's the approach to take rather than turning back from the countries. stuart: we are not turning backs on saudi arabia, that's a fact. >> thank you, stuart. stuart: yes, sir, the left continually claims that incomes are stagnating, we are going nowhere, americans keep turning water, that is not true and we have the numbers to prove it, my take on that top of the next hour. ♪ ♪ i am an independent financial advisor.

11:01 am
to people over on the pay scale. maybe that's why middle america voted heavily for donald trump. now here's what is true. the super rich are getting much richer. since 1979 to 1% show in after-tax income gain of 200 or 83%. but they are paying much more of the total tax burden than they did a generation ago. this study goes from 1979 to 2015 so it doesn't take into account president trump's tax cuts are the big increase in wages and well-paid jobs. the trump economy is helping middle america to make a comeback. so let's backup a little. it's not true that poor people are left out in the cold. it is not true that incomes are stagnating. i'll close with this. robert samuelson op-ed emissive stagnant incomes from his last sentence i'll read it for you it may seem except for the fortunate few hardly anyone is getting ahead.

11:32 am
they are up about 3%, fastest rise in about a decade. our next guest says wages are going up even faster in the future. evolutionary circus, big hitting guy. senior fellow at the hoover institution. a fine introduction i just gave you fair. wages are going to raise at a faster pace next year. >> wages are closely related to productivity increases. what we've had over the past few years during the recovery. as you know is very weak productivity. that's been a big problem, something that's concerned economists. a lot of explanations have put forth. the big change in the last couple quarters as part of tv has taken off. from being done around 1% growth per year, and our year, an hour or 2.% over the last six months. but the really big deal because if you look across countries or
11:33 am
within a country over time, we find a very close relationship between wage growth in productivity growth. it makes some sense if you think about it for a moment. you basically can't pay workers higher wages unless you have the output with which to pay them. so what happens is when output goes, and the friends of the prophets, they have the goods, the ability to increase wages. that will continue to happen hopefully over the next couple of quarters. stuart: is that the use of technology which is creating this productivity boom? >> you know, it's really interesting, stuart. there is always a lag between technology changes and this happened in the 80s. we were waiting for productivity to grow when we have information communications revolution.
11:34 am
