down sided or find a place where you feel okay now it is -- a good opportunity because, we've bottomed out? >> well, our profits is also a looking for opportunity in the market i would say we are beginning to pick away what we think are opportunities, the markets already down from highs, a lot of individual stocks are down quite a bit more. of course, the fed meeting in october, not far away, and williams president of the -- hinting that you know probably something happens in october. >> he came on my show actually sunday, and i said to him, anastasia should we expect december the time you don't have a press conference in october he said we don't neither a press conference i agree i think it is october what do you think? >> i think it might be past october would i fall into december kwafrp the reason i say that fed was pretty adamant about concern about china, and if we judge froming the manufacturing, number that came out this morning we may not get clarity on china until sometime later in the year.
6:34 am
so i think, this -- idea, that uask can decouple from the rest of the world u.s. can decouple from china i think kind of a mistake to make that -- that notion, because if you look at markets prrj glob gdp now 40% used to be 17% a couple decades ago i don't think we can fully do a he couple for that reason the fed may want to see what happens between now, and -- december, between october not a wholly lot more. >> isn't that true when you look at trading partners so much challenge out there, canada recession australia recession can u.s. sustain growth corporate earnings growth as well, while trading partners are so challenged. >> a i think one of the most important things to note s&p 500 earnings, that, year to date is essentiallyly flat well below what analysts expected a large part driven by earnings from energy throttle collapsed you take

6:36 am
yet. >> it is the anxiety this volatile market continues to cause anxiety amongst investors amongst retirees continue to see their portfolio go up and down. not a time where people are going to be out spending lots of money even if the economy is improving a little bit, americans are not feeling it. >> you think that will happen? >> end of the year consumers will it bb consumer led. >> i think so, yes. >> if you are going to put money to work you got to is to the ith do it about selectivity on surface detractors from soap soap a 500, effects energy you could not ignore it you can say extrapolate all you want investing in s&p aggregate you are getting ask exposure sector behaved the way to do it. maria: good to have you on the show you the so much, dan chung ceo chief investment officer with more than 22 billion starbucks says you can

[laughter]. arthur conan doyle only mentioned him six or seven times in the stories and left a huge area for people to explore, they say he's middle aged overweight and reclusive and every now and then he sneaks out of his house and helps sherlock do a few things and that's in the original stories. so, we did his back story. we let people know what it was all about before sherlock

became the world's primary consulting detective. mycroft was busy working in the british government and it's said that he was the british government in the original cannon, that means that mycroft ran the country when britain was a world super power. maria: i love it. we're looking at the video of pope francis arriving at the white house, kareem, right now, how does it play into the narrative that we're talking about. are you excited that the pope is here? >> yeah, i look this pope. maria: what do you like? >> he reached out and wants people to talk to each other and promote peace, he doesn't care what stripes you've got, he wants the whole world to work together for peace and cooperation so they can eliminate some problems that are afflicting the whole world. maria: and his parents, of course, fled italy to get away from mussolini and he was raised in argentina and he's
8:56 am
got that sort of integration, italy, argentina. >> he certainly has an understanding of what it is to be a refugee. maria: yeah. >> and given that conversation and his history, what do you think we could be doing in this country about the refugee crisis going on now? >> i don't know. i don't know how prepared we are to accept more refugees, but i think we need to be available to do what we can do because this is a world crisis and everybody's going to have to pitch in. maria: it must be liberating for you to be able to write, speak, and talk about some things that are important to you and that matter so much to the country. you're in a very different role right now. >> absolutely. and it's a great responsibility and, but i'm enjoying it. you know, it's been fun and makes me -- i've got to think everything through and research

it three times, but that's good. that's all good. maria: yeah. kareem, what's next for you? this book is your first novel. are you moving into more toward noveling, i mean, writing novels? your children's books were really about education. >> yeah, well, i think we're going to have to think about this for a while because the publisher wants a sequel so we're going to have to do something about that. looking forward to nothing it, but all of a sudden i've got another deadline, but that's writing, that's the business. maria: you've been doing a lot of book signings. what are you hearing from the people when you go out. we're talking about donald trump's comments about mexicans and what we heard from dr. ben carson. do these subjects come up. >> a lot of people say i like the way you took on trump, he talks too much. dagen: i'm sure you got a lot of twitter haters. >> a lot of those.
8:58 am
maria: and when you speak out, he strikes back. >> he wrote a letter. maria: what did it say. >> that i had no idea what america was all about and how to make it better and it's like a note you get from the class bully. you know? but i've had to deal with that, too, whatever happens happens. dagen: he wouldn't get in your face, well, he would hit you somewhere here. >> in my chest. >> and laimbeer. >> laimbeer was on the court with me so it was tougher. maria: you want to have these conversations and politics gets in the way sometimes. >> unfortunately. maria: do you she that happens? >> yeah, it happens too much. maria: that's why you've got bernie sanders in the lead against hillary clinton in some places. >> and bernie has something to say that makes sense. he actually is trying to solve problems, he's not trying to
