6:23 pm
6:24 pm
>> stocks are constantly up and down and wondering where things stand. ali velshi, let's start with inflation. >> it's called cpi. goods and services,
6:25 pm
sophisticated thing. it fell .4 of a percent in december compared to november. that's the biggest drop in six years because of these falling oil prices. for a full year inflation was up .8 of 1%. a lot of people say fantastic. the prices aren't higher. even when you strip out food and energy prices because those are traditionally volatile, often economists like to strip out food and energy to see how most prices are. inflation is unchanged from a year ago. that has the fed worried. they may want to wait a little longer before they raise interest rates. when you slow down the economy you slow inflation. here's why slow--low inflation is a problem. it's nice for a little while but when you think that prices over time go down your whole
6:26 pm
thinking about buying things changes. if you think they're going to go up you buy them now. if you think they're going to go down you wait. if you think prices in general are going to go down, you stop buying things. companies stop expanding they wait for you to make a decision to buy and they don't hire people. you don't want them to worry by being a little low. >> we have the situation in addition to jobs. more people are getting jobs, paying less for gas because that translates into new good consumer confidence. >> consumer sentiment rose to an 11-year high. that's like a stimulus. the improving job parent, the question, of course is this job market we've seen improvements
6:27 pm
and years and years of job gains, but we are not seeing the waging move up. i think the president is going to talk about that. he's going to talk about it by minimum wage. he wants to increase minimum wage to $10.10. that's his proposal. republicans hate that saying that is government telling business what to do. we'll look at what it will take to raise real money in wages. >> good to see you. thank you man. a woman in charge of rolling out the affordable care act or obamacare is now resigning. today she has announced that she will step down at the end of next month. and a not too subtle shot of how europeans treat muslim immigrants. also 2014 was the warmest year on record, and nasa scientists

6:29 pm
6:30 pm
>> president obama and u.k. prime minister david cameron wrapped up two days of meetings at the white house. the summit touched on the economy and security and terrorist attacks in france were the discussions. >> there has to be a recognition that the stronger the ties of a frenchman of north african descent to french values, french republic, a since of opportunity, that's going to be as important if not more important in overtime solving this problem.
6:31 pm
>> president obama also said he'd confident that they'll prevail in the hearts and mind of muslims in their communities. >> so we have these two gentlemen, two leaders today and they had an opportunity today to gather, to respond to last week's attacks in paris. you were a bit surprised by what you heard from these two men. tell me why. >> well, one thing that i think was really important was they struck this very non-alarmist tone. they were like, you know, these attacks have happened, they're very important big event. terrorism is a huge threat, and remains a human threat to the west and the united states but at the same time recognizing that the battle begins terrorism is not a single event. it's something that as president
6:32 pm
obama said that his susser will have to deal with as well. this recognition not to raise the alarm too high, recognize the emother enormous security threat but not to overreact was interesting to me. >> because hotter rhetoric has the potential to give some fuel motivation to right wing groups cruise europe who are using this moment to stoke anti-muslim sentiment. >> that's exactly recall right. but also, i think you don't want to glorify these acts or give them that status on the other side. you don't want them to think that they're actually getting to you. that's part of it as well.
6:33 pm
>> that might be something for media outlets to keep in mind. >> that's always the issue. >> here's a thought at one point president obama praised america's connection to its muslim communities. this is what he had to say. let have a glitch our muslim populations they feel themselves to be americans.{^l"^^}. there is this incredible process of immigration and assimilation that is part of our tradition that is probably our greatest strength. >> here is a question, do you think that the president was calling out europe a bit with these comments? >> i think so. he was contrasting the american muslim population by all studies are very well integrated. >> that was an accurate picture
6:34 pm
that the president offered up. >> oh, i think that's totally accurate. people have long contrasted the way europe treats it's muslim communities versus the united states. first of all, you have to remember that the numbers are much much smaller. in the united states it's less than 1% of the population. in a country like france. >> 3.5 million to 5 million. >> yes so very small. in france you're looking at 10% of the population who can be identified as muslims. so you have a big difference in numbers. beyond that europe has had muslim immigrants who came as guest workers so at the lower end of the economic scale and their children often have faced discrimination particularly in employment very high unemployment rate among muslim youth, so they've stayed within the margins of society. in the united states, on the other hand it is much more
6:35 pm
diverse. you don't have just the guest worker but many other different professionals coming in. >> push back on david cameron who said this is not a question of assimilation this is a question that the real threat is a poisonous ideology. >> the yes is question is why is this attractive to certain populations. why is this attracted to men who carried it out. >> is it because they feel disinfranchised, marginalized, is that what you believe? >> i think that is a very real part of the situation. it's too easy to say there is this poisonous ideology out there and that is causing all of these problems. there are 1.6 billion muslims in the world and this poisonous ideology is not causing them to
6:36 pm
create terrorist attacks. so a little bit of caution is merited. >> thank you. have a great weekend. thank you for being on our program. it is freezing in the middle east right now. many are bracing themselves as conditions get worse. nicole johnston reports where people are dying from the cold. >> a harsh winter has come to the beqaa valley covering the hills and homes with snow. this house has no heating. it's a cold cement shell. the family escaped the family from syria and lived in lebanon. they lived in this house for the last five months. but a week ago the temperatures dropped to minus 10 degrees celsius.

6:38 pm
here it's warm and safe. they're waiting to get help from the united nations and they're waiting for their father to return. until he does, they'll stay here. >> the kids are staying in my home. what should i do, put them in the streets? they lost their mother because of the cold. they don't have heating gas or food. they don't have anything. >> the body couldn't be buried for four days. the grouped was frozen hard. she has been laid to rest in the beqaa valley. and because of that reason they will never return to syria. they'll stay in lebanon close to their mother's grave. nicole johnston, al jazeera. >> saudi arabia has postponed the floging of a blogger.

6:49 pm
>> what do you mean wrapping it all together being a surprise. >> 80 pages of treasury and commerce, and they're all expansive. they're all basically a blueprint for changing cuba. now the question is going to be whether cuba wants to be changed. if cuba feels it can survive the onslaught of the obama initiatives then there is going to be activity. but cuba generally will allow what it feels it can control. in this particular case all of these new initiatives are designed to destabilize cuba in one way. they're designed to tear at the social fabric of cuba and in essence recreate classes that the revolution extinguished,
