year. two high profile investors are raising the flag over the federal reserve chief money policies. >> it's going to be real problems. we're walking into a mine field of what's going on with the fed. i think we have problems. >> this is not some permanent boost you've got. your borrowing from the future and there's been such a misallocation of resources because this has gone on so long and so unnecessarily the chickens will come home to roost. >> promoting the release of his new book, republican presidential candidate donald trump accusing the fed of not raising rates for political reasons. >> they are not raising them because obama has asked them not to raise them. in my opinion, he wants to get out of office because we are in a bubble and when those rates are raised a lot of bad things are going to happen or potentially going to happen and in my opinion janet yellen is
5:03 am
highly political and she is not raising rates for a very specific reason because obama told her not to because he wants to be out playing golf in a year from now and he wants to be doing other things and doesn't want to see a big bubble burst during his administration. let's go straight to washington d.c. tracie potts joins us now. this has been a hot button contentious republican political issue. not only donald trump. we have heard this from rand paul and ted cruz. >> right. their argument is that the fed is artificially keeping these rates low when given the economy and the growth that we've seen it would make more sense at this point to raise rates. of course that could have some immediate implications for people trying to get loans. it could be quite a challenge for the middle class. people trying to buy cars and pay for college educations but donald trump and as you noted, some others, say this is where the economy is right now.
5:04 am
the rates need to go up. the fed and fed chair janet yellen have said no and they're accusing them of being very political and bowing to pressure from the obama administration to keep the rates low. the response from the white house, of course not said the white house spokesman. they are independent and go to great lengths to make sure that they can do not necessarily what the white house is telling them. >> a quick question but if the vote took place today it's neck and neck with ben carson and hillary clinton. >> exactly. 47% each and he is the only republican that even comes close to beating hillary clinton. possibly with one exception. marco rubio is about 3 points behind. that's within the margin of error but donald trump a fallen front runner now. in the latest polls is way behind. 8% behind hillary clinton.

5:07 am
nitrisoxide. >> and it gets at the heart of the problem which people speculated all along which is the device is really just the beginning here and more and more revelations could be coming out and the difference here being with the co2 emissions is this doesn't even come down to a defeat device. this is a discrepancy in the level reported. so this gets back to the problem of why the false statements here and questions of management and reporting will be brought up in this case and this is a preliminary estimate. volkswagen saying they will get in touch to start a dialogue on what the penalties could look like and in this case as opposed to the 6.7 billion we saw set aside previously was largely due to estimates of what a recall would cost and it's believed that this 2 billion euros is
5:08 am
really more tied to potential penalties and fines but this comes just a day after the epa in the united states said they weren't investigating on 10,000 cars on higher end edges as well. this case seems to be grow big the day and investors want more answers from volkswagen. >> thank you so much. >> let's give you a rundown of what to watch for. the private report due out eastern time. that comes ahead of the nonfarms payrolls data set to be released. versus 200,000 that we saw in september now at 8:30 a.m. we're going to get the september trade deficit figures and the ism services index comes your way at 10:00 a.m. janet yellen testifying today before the house financial

5:14 am
shopper, the one complaint i have is sometimes when you're overseas you don't get the deals you see on the north american website. are you saying thatly get the same deal as someone in minnesota? >> depends on the retailer. they run different promotion internationally and the shipping fees are different. so it's those types of promotions that are different but as we gear up for this holiday season we see a lot of retailers thinking about flat rate or free shipping offers globally. so you'll see a lot of those coming out. >> duty and tax free. that's a lot of music to some shoppers ears. i'm just wondering, do you see the potential, bigger potential in europe or asia now that has a growing consumer middle class? >> a lot of growth around the world. china is growing for our retailers. we're coming up on singles day so that's a big holiday in china obviously and is becoming a global holiday.

voters in san francisco rejected a proposal that would have limited airbnb rentals in it's city. they spent more than $8 million to defeat the measure with an advertising blitz across the city. proposition f would have restricted home rentals to 75 nights a year and then require airbnb and other sites to pull
5:21 am
listings that exceeded that limit. >> remember back in 2013 elon musk group unveiled plans for a high speed transport system called the hyperloop. reports suggest that work on a test track could start before the new year. spacex invited independent engineers to submit their design proposals for the hyperloop pod and the deadline is on november 13th. so let's get straight back. we're going to the web summit in dublin. i'm so excited by this interview because it gets you from new york to l.a. in 45 minutes. >> susan, you'll be even more excited if there's an alternative to getting around. we all want to go places quicker and we all want it being delivered these days. a whole bunch of companies are
5:22 am
having a go at disrupting from drones to space travel and of course this futuristic style train transport system that we're talking about. joining me here live at web summit is the ceo of hyperloop. nice to see you. >> nice to be here. >> i'm sure you get asked here all the time. what is hyperloop and how it works. >> sure. if you imagine we create a closed environment, low pressure environment inside a tube and build that point to point between cities or between a port and airport and reduce the pressure to 160,000 feet above the earth's surface. it creates a much more controlled environment. not subject to weather and in r sbrepgss we have today. then you have a pod. that pod could be moved quickly using an electric motor that shoots it along.
5:23 am
it's levitated off the rail. and then you remove all the pressure from the front of that pod to ensure that you can move very very quickly. the result of all of this as a system is you can move people and goods in excess of 700 miles an hour. you can move them on demand. coming here was an experience as we flew from los angeles to the beautiful airport of heathrow. it would be more on demand and you'd arrive much more quickly and we could transform how we see ourselves moving goods and freight around the world today. >> for those that followed your company eagerly they're aware that elon musk was involved in publicizing the idea but farmed it out to others to run with. how much interest has there been in the technology? >> fantastic and the progress has been more impressive.
5:24 am
our company was founded by a well-known venture capitalist and entrepreneur and a fantastic engineering mind. he spent ten years studying at the university of elon musk at spacex designing many of the key components of the rockets that have gone to space and that company since being founded has raised a significant amount of capital. we built a great team. we're guided by a board of directors that is a dream team of advise source and individuals that have made contributions in technology, in government policy that is exceptional and the interest that we see coming in from around the world about the applications of hyperloop is just astounding. so there's a global movement that seems to be happening that says we want something different and we believe hyperloop can be part of the solution in the future. >> you're a 17 year veteran of cisco. now you're with a company pursuing innovation.
5:25 am
you have a whole bunch of billionaire investors. how different of a company is it because of that? >> the thing that struck me after all the years at cisco, building the internet, a network of connected pipes for the digital world is that this company is moving so quickly. it's astounding what we accomplish in days and as weeks go by we make increasingly significant progress. as we turn the corner to the last part of the year we'll be completing our next round of funding. as we get ready in january we're starting the first of the tests of our propulsion testing that will be in an outdoor environment. so without the reduced pressure we'll be moving our first test system 400 miles per hour and all of that comes together in 2016 as we move our own kitty hawk moment in moving this at 700 miles per hour for a couple of miles. >> this is the two mile test track. it's on course for launch next year.
5:26 am
>> it's on course an your question about progress is something that's incredible. the team assembled, brilliant minds from disciplines across the world in some of the leading companies, they're builders. so when you see our campus, a three acre campus in downtown los angeles, there's people building stuff. they're testing. they're taking theory. they build a simulator and go into production. that's the new development model for hardware that our company is a lying to make this project happen. >> can i ask you very very quickly about regulation? it seems there's a massive headwind in terms of moving people quickly across the world versus moving cargo. what do you think is more likely to get up and running first? people or cargo? >> i think the regulations for both will be different by country and here's the way we look at it. we can actually see areas of the world that can clearly understand the economic advantage of hyperloop. they can see how labor markets could change.
5:27 am
how economic efficiency could be driven and we expect that very top level support for hyperloop will emerge and having that emerge in the first place is to build the first hyperloop is one of our key focus areas. >> great to talk to you here at web summit. the ceo of hyperloop technologies. let me toss it back to the studio. >> amazing concept. still to come on the program, it's an elon musk day. we'll check in on shares of tesla soaring despite the loss in more than two years. we'll break down the numbers after this as we check in on the u.s. futures. ♪ there are no medals won for earning a living.
5:28 am
it's just what you do for family. but it's hard to build a future if you can't see past today. that's why walmart is investing in the most important part of our company - our people. because a raise in pay, raises us all. ♪

5:32 am
the ftse 100 up 1%. the german dax being weighed by vw shares being sold off so we're lower by .10%. ftse mib seeing gains of .8. vw and porsche shares back into the red. as you can see the declines we're seeing for the dax benchmark and for the first time petrol cars are being dragged into this scandal. it was mostly diesel engines. 800,000 vehicles have been effected by another problem. this time involving carbon dioxide emissions. and this could lead to a 2 billion euro charge for the car maker. the issue is in addition to the on going defeat device investigation which involves up to 11 million vehicles and this latest discovery was made during an internal probe. it doesn't specify which models but this time, yes it does inlewd petrol as well as diesel
5:33 am
engines. separately vw is recalling certain calls in the u.s. and canada according to a reuters report citing an personal memo to dealers. it could reduce engine and break power telling dealers not to sell anymore vehicles they currently have in inventory. >> in shares of japan is takata. they plummeted this morning after honda said it will no longer not use it's air bags in future vehicles. this comes after the auto safety firm was hit with a 70 million dollars fine for u.s. auto regulators for the way that it handles recalls of defective air bags. the firm is cooperating with authorities. >> we think psan inflaters are safe. it's the fact that the car makers and the authorities have concern. we're trying hard but it's still under investigation unfortunately. this comes from a business
5:34 am
decision. >> it's a different story for shares in honda with the group trading higher after a 6.9% increase on strong u.s. sales. the performance state side offset a difficult domestic japanese picture with the 127 billion yen net profit still slightly missing consensus estimates. let's check in on tesla because the electric car maker posting it's biggest quarterly loss in more than two years after the bell but you never know that by looking at the company's share price. phil has more. >> tesla shares moving higher after hours as the electric vehicle maker reported third quarter earnings that fell below expectation on the top and bottom line. tesla reported a loss of 58 cents a share on revenue a little lower than expectations of 1.26 billion. why did shares move higher after
5:35 am
hours? primarily because the fourth quarter guidance in terms of deliveries shows it will be meeting expectations in terms of 50,000 vehicles being delivered this year. it plans to deliver between 17,019,00 17,000 and 19,000 vehicles. it's previous guidance was 50,000 vehicles delivered for this year. the mass market electric vehicle, it will unveil that vehicle in march of next year. remember, deliveries are not expected to start until late in 2017 but the unveiling of what that vehicle will look like is certain to get a lot of attention. shares of tesla moving higher after hours despite reporting a loss of 58 cent ace share in the third quarter. that's the story from here in the u.s. back to you. >> we'll get more analysis here in london and joining me in the studio t auto analyst at isi
5:36 am
group. people were expecting a lot of problems coming from the new cross over the model x. how did you see the results? >> yeah, well i think the results were pretty much in line as phil said. 58 cents a share. we were looking for a loss of 61. the street was a bit better and obviously a currency revaluation in there but the point that phil made and the point that we believe t street is take agoway is this delivery guidance. going into the quarter people saw a lot of risk around the previously guided range. out of the quarter, tesla stayed within that range. now guiding for 50 to 52,000 units. >> so within the range but, you know, their initial forecast for deliveries this year was 55,000, right? so we're still below what they started off the year with. >> exactly. we're still below the delivery forecast but with tesla it's production rather than demand
5:37 am
which is driving what they can get out to customers at this point in time and the model x is an extremely come my kated car. it has many industry firsts and as a result it has been a bit later than they initially invisioned. >> components with constraints when it comes to seat belts and car doors and these problems could be addressed in the next one and could be pumping out maybe a few hundred more vehicles each and every month pretty soon. >> by the end of the quarter he's talking about pumping out around 100 model x per week. a point he made on the car is they're only as strong as their weakest supplier. so they can have 99.9% of the supply base in place but if that 0.1% is unable to deliver it delays the program. >> what about the model 3? everyone is excited for this. this vehicle makes it more affordable for the average person. >> exactly.
5:38 am
one of the things that's true is they have been innovative, exciting and great looking. the model 3, the question is will we get more of the same? we believe we will. as you said this is going to be the key car. not just for consumers given the lower price point but also for investors. this is the car that gets you to around half a million units by 2020. that's key to their valuation. >> i don't know what makes a car look angry. i'm not sure they look angry. they have nice lines. >> i think they're pretty good-looking. the model s looks similar to a maserati. >> i still like the insane button. i hope that keep that on the model 3. good to see you today. thank you for your time. that's the auto analyst at isi group. okay. here's an update on a developing story we have been talking about that goes back to chipotle and health officials say they're
