us,ean williams reminds employment is doing well and they are starting to catch up. is a tricky situation. i would put it higher than the 20's but it is not done by any chance -- yes, the data is soft but it is not ugly. the fed is saying we might do something. the market is just watching the data because they were told to and saying you are not going to do anything. >> the market has been conditioned that it is data dependent. we see week data. secondly, the moves cannot simply be justified by a change of probability. liquidity is the other thing going on. why you see smart moves in response to incremental data that should not have such an impact. >> is the fed losing some of its clout?
and not just the fed, the bank of england, the ecb, are they being listened to the way they used to be? >> in general, the central bank is becoming less effective and within that, there is huge variation. is not justjapan ineffective but counterproductive. the other one is the fed, still effective but not as effective as it was before. england andbank of the ecb between those two. >> does that change? negativeinterest rates tendencies the currency appreciate because it is starting to trigger counterintuitive reactions of individuals and companies. it tends to happen at extremes. negative interest rates at some point, they encouraged savings, capital repayment. a counterintuitive reaction to have gone too far and is.
>> this does not just have to apply to the bank of japan, but a low interest rate, the problem now and not a solution. does there need to be a complete rethink on the effectiveness of low rate environment? >> ultralow rates and negative turning from being part of the solution to part of the problem. in some countries, they are a problem already. japan being one of them in europe also being an issue there. banks --us on central less focus on central banks. imagine? , the numbers they're just coming out, put together with the fed, are those two really connected? the central bank demonstrated getting asset prices up. getting the economy's going has

the question is whether the --lic message misrepresenting what they knew internally. >> what do the conclusions show, do you think? >> that is the ultimate question paired it is difficult to prove as most scholars will tell you that some sort of security fraud took place. is the attorney general eric snyder had at his act, whichthe martin allowed him to look at whether these companies were able to basically defraud investors. what your piece outlined so masterfully is, they seemed
caught off guard. -- talkingt about bit about what they have done since and how they responded to the charges from the state's attorney general. >> they were very reactive to this. they initially tried to poke saying they had a lot of financial backing by environmental groups. a lot of the claims to not really hold water. then they tried to lobby congress to push against it, they were successful in getting the house science committee to push on subpoenaing the attorney general in new york snyderman, and whether they were able to constitute fraud here. great story. thanks to you. >> time now for a look at the

concerns about the future? classy has had a tough year. everyone hates bill ackman right now and everyone hates chipotle. there are still a lot of questions. a lot of the criticism has been levied at its fourth. to have any sense of what they hope to do? thee kind of do because pension has already kind of weighed in on the subject and they think investors that own 3% to 25% should elect up of the board. to add ackman could look a few seats to the board and get a few operators on their, people who have had similar experience is in know how to run a restaurant. it gets results in a lot of cases.

definitely light a fire on management changes. >> this company has run in a very consolidated way. do you expect that to be a point of tension here? struggle witha the way this is set up. >> you never know. it depends on what he pushes for and what they are willing to accept. the restaurant level margin is one of them. that one may be a little contentious. re-franchising will really generate a lot of cash that can back shares,to buy it will improve the margin profile and create more stable .ash flow and higher valuation
options market as far as you have seen? david: what i like to call the indilocks payroll report last friday, where we did not get a huge number that caused the fed to raise rates and have us buying here, we thought the economy would fall apart. what we see now is a lot of complacency here in the market with near all-time highs. the nasdaq yesterday, staging a little bit of a rally. pretty much sideways. we are under 12 right now on the volatility index. there is not a lot of activity going on, we are not place bets in one direction or another.
