6:04 am
but it's still growth and if you look at it, we are having slowing global growth but the u.s. economy is doing well, europe is doing well, japan is doing okay, so even though we are in the lower-growth environment, the only way oil is going to come back if we get some of that growth. >> sandra: i want to bring dominic in here. >> dominick: they purpose usually try today slowed the economy down to try to get it away from the intensive manufacturer, more consumer. what i want to know doug, when do we see a benefit from the u.s. economy, we have been talking about lower oil prices, when do we see it benefiting the corporations? i think it was not american airlines, had really good earnings. when do we see benefit for american corporations on low oil
6:05 am
prices? >> it's slow to come in to the consumer, but what we are seeing is benefiting manufacturing, you're seeing a lot of german companies buying u.s. manufacturers, you're seeing chemical companies coming in getting huge benefit. you're seeing the oil export band lifted, so we are seeing down the road, that's why we are seeing second half. we think a lot of this clears. what we are saying is, be broadly globally diversified and alsohey don't on this market anymore, accept more and more volatility. >> are we going to see enough benefit to offset the oil patch and losses? >> not essentially. comparisons are very easy and compared to 2015, so we do see

6:07 am
has really focused on helping the consumer out and refer to cycle of housing, employment, and they're spending money, retail sales weren't great last week and that's because of demand and that's a good sign for u.s. economy. >> i'm the policy guys and i look at these things. you have government setting policies that companies are making economic policy. the problem to your point about airlines is airport fees go up the rest of the company functions after respond. the policies are not working together. government policy and corporate policies, and that's a problem. that's global by the way because they're buying america. everyone is trying to buy america but we are being dragged down. look at the globe as a whole, not just the sectors we talk about. >> if you talk about the global economy africa, they're actually growing at 5%. you talk about policy regulation

6:41 am
we talked about the policy and what the government does in china, talked about signals being sent, while the market opened up in the green. last night i sat there and looked at the markets ahead of this morning and it was because someone had sent a signal they control their economy. it is a managed economy and they are making sure they prop it up but the real growth will eventually come home to roost. >> putting that aside, when president bush went through the economic cycle after 9/11, look what he had to go through to get a bill passed to get an economic stimulus package. president bush, obama had to do the same thing. to get a massive package through congress and get it into the economy. . a snap their fingers against and done. we can argue communists and free-market that the end of the day they can snap their fingers and get it done. >> where those two intersect, we
6:42 am
talked about this. when the government can act a certain way and the economy has to react to it, then you have to look at the broader picture, what is the real picture in china. it is communist country that controls capital. they have to support their infrastructure, people, growth, and they are not opening. it is not a force multiplier economically, their growth is not 7%. some people argue 5%, i stabile growth when u.s. as their overall economy right around 2% and the world is slowing down. we have threats around world, the economic environment and the global environment coming together. this is a recipe for economic disaster. >> to recap, china is injecting 600 billion yuan into the financial system boosting liquidity for the markets, this is widely expected, you saw markets in asia moving higher even though we saw weaker gdp

8:05 am
still up 1% and this after the iea the international agency worries that a further drop. this prices is likely as supply continues to exceed demand. that glut that we keep talking about. for more on the market i would like to bring chief market strategist. let's start with oil first. has oil hit abbott --. >> were seeing oil up a little bit rather than down a couple down a barrel. we have to talk about how to digest this additional supply. >> when you look at the markets -- techingty market, the stock mar can ket seems to be reacting to oil. what happens now? >> that's not good news. oil is an over supplied market. inventory is probably 25%-30%
8:06 am
above for this time of year. as they remain for some time probably for next year or so -- >> could we see $25 oil? >> i think we can. at a minimum -- i think the majority occurs but it's going to be volatile and jumping around. flay looking for some type of -- they are looking for some type of stability. we haven't had a chance oh the talk in the new year, the last time we saw this sort of rough start was back in 1991. we looked at the performance. by the tend of the year, the stock market rose double digits more than 20% after the significant drop. what are you forecasting on your end at this point? >> i think this is more like 2008. we saw a lot of the tight turns
8:07 am
last year in 2015. where the market had head winds now, so i think this market thereby significantly lower. i think somewhere in the 17 to 1800 range in the s&p 500. >> you are looking at the s&p of 1880. you are saying we could pal in the 1700? >> i think that's a possibility of that. >> what are you looking at the biggest driver particularly when it pertains to oil. even though they are saving all this money at the gas pump. they are not spending it elsewhere. >> well, i think they are spending it on more gas lean because they are driving their cars and buying bigger cars and seeing it in traffic an miles driven. but also the thing that i'm
8:08 am
looking at the most is production here in the u.s. due to a declining recount as well as some production shut ins that i'm expecting in canada. we are seeing in a country like oman where they are taking out their oil rigs. it's the su fly size that -- it's the supply size that are coming out this year. >> the projection for china oil imports is it will increase by 5% and natural gas by 8%. we have issues on a demand side for improvement and europe is not falling off the cliff at least not yet. we can see some improvement there on demand side. >> well, in china especially when they are selling 22 million cars a year. we see good demand growth for gasoline. we are seeing a lot of diesel

8:10 am
economy out there but we need to see more in industrial production. it's down year over year for the first time. it's down more than 8% last year. that's not a good sign. >> . the political landscape for you watching the stock market how much is that a factor in your decision if 2016? >> i think investors need to see the peeks and form here. >> is there any particular candidate that is more friendly than --? >> they want somebody who will be a good tax policy and be a good leader an not attack the individuals and set tax. >> do we really the put this on just the presidential candidates when policy comes out of the congress so when the candidates are looking to scott's point to 2017.
8:11 am

8:23 am
>> i got in the business eight years ago. the biggest thing is we started a sports and entertainment initiative. you see player, 75% are bankrupt or have financial distress. i think trying to get the word out and what they can do to avoid that. we started that an had some success and trying to make that transition from player to retirement so they don't have that problem. >> why is that transition so hard? we hear those stories so often. >> surrounding yourself with the right people. players tend to have their family members and friends do their finances and accounting work and having tax issues later on in life an they need to take care of that an not do that. >> what's the most important thing to help these players with? this is during play and post play. >> the biggest thing to understand is it's not a unique situation. it's like anybody else all of a sudden losing their job.
8:24 am
the only different is these tkpoeus made tremendous announce of money srapbd to understand that when it ends it should last them for the rest of their lives the, really. if you take a look at the markets over the last 30 years they have annualized. if you don't spend it today, you will have $17 million-dollars in 30 years. it will give you additional $850,000 in income. you make the choice now to buy an expensive car or blow that none as oh opposed to saving it. >> this is after this w*e had this crazy start to the new year. a lot of the average investors have been fearful that this is going to be an ugly year for the market. what do you do when you have a market that shows this type of volatility. you stay in it for the long

8:26 am
plans and try to -- annuity insurance plans -- how do you break through that mold? >> it's tough. some time we have athletes that are second or third contract they get it. my career ended with concussions, done. i woke up the next day an they were retiring me, my career was over. i had three years left in my contract. i never made another dollar. you have to get past the family members and the first line of defense an it's hard. if you can get to them early and explain to them they don't need to buy that fourth house for everybody. >> it's a harsh reality. in your profession things can change that fast. >> it's all the sports, it's not just football. it's baseball and hockey.
8:27 am
it's the vast majority of being broke. what is the voice that makes them wake up? >> just person the experience. that's what helps my business. i've been there, it's not just retiring and not just financing but psych psychologically, i knt it's like to make that transition. you want to spend a crazy amount of money because you don't know what to do with yourself. i think i can can help out. >> thanks for coming many. your super bowl pick? >> i hike patriots -- i like patriots. it i hope they do something. >> alright. great to have you this morning. we will be right back.

>> families of several americans released by iran
8:31 am
celebrating the return of their loved ones. one family is still looking for answers. and here is president obama talking about the former fbi agent robert levenson believed to still be held hostage in iran. >> iran has agreed to deepen our coordination as we work to locate robert levenson missing from iran for eight years. even as we enjoy the safe return of others, we will not forget about bob. each and every day, especially today our hearts are with the levenson family and we'll not rest until they're howhole agai. sandra: let's bring in bob dewise, christine levenson and his son dan. thank you for having us. sandra: i don't think many people can possibly imagine what you're going through as a family. what did you make of the swap against the president and his administration announced this
8:32 am
this weekend and that your husband would not be coming home? >> we were devastated. absolutely devastated. we had no information that this was going to happen and we found out about it on tv just like everyone else did and it was very disappointing that they had not at least given us some information that this was going to happen. sandra: you find out about the swap and five americans are coming home, but not your father. what information, what is the latest information you received from your father? >> oh, from our father, we've never had direct contact with him in the almost nine years since he was abducted. we received a strange video and pictures back in 2010, late 2010 and then six month later in 2011, but the u.s. government has not gotten back to us since the swap date. we had one quick phone call where they apologized for not getting to us in advance, but nothing since. we have no idea what the next
8:33 am
steps, what the u.s. government is taking and trying to find out answers and trying to meet with the top level administration to find out what, now that the nuclear deal is struck and sanctions, what can they do to get our dad home. sandra: in preparation this morning, can we pull up the latest statement or anything we've heard from the state department on this. and secretary of state john kerry, the last time he spoke on your father and the search for your father was in december. and at that time he said iran is committed to cooperate with us to determine the whereabouts of robert levinson, you have no update on the search. what do you believe they should be doing to actively find your husband? >> everything they can. i don't believe it's enough. i know that the fbi has had an investigation and they've always worked very hard for us. they have a $5 million reward
8:34 am
out, but unfortunately, it's very hard to get information from that area and they have not received any leads. sandra: on that, the reward you're talking about is a $5 million reward for any information on your husband and your father's whereabouts, and you're keeping track of them on social media. you've got #whataboutbob to try to find out anything where your family member is. >> we're just an average american family and we've been throughout this, we want to show -- we want to make sure that my dad is not forgotten that ordinary americans and people around the world and the hash tag and raising awareness out there. we're not going to go away and not going to give up on this and keep pressing. sandra: for those who don't have the details of the story, your father disappeared in march, 2007, and at that time what did -- what was he doing there? >> he was working as a contractor for the cia and he
8:35 am
was meeting with a contact there, supposed to be 24 hours, all points-- all information and points he had checked out of his hotel and picked up by iranian security forces. in fact, iranian state media reported he was picked up by them. they've denied knowing anything about him since, but everybody believes the iranian administration knows where he is. sandra: he was working as a contractor with the cia. was there a payout. >> the cia admitted they were responsible for him being over there. my dad was the sole breadwinner, i'm one of seven children and my mom had no source of income so it was very difficult for her. so, she had-- they provided that settlement for the time being. sandra: so, it's hard to project where this is going to go from here, but this prisoner swap, does that make you-- it's a difficult question to
8:36 am
ask, but does it make you any less hopeful that the state department, that the president and his administration are tracking down your husband? >> no, i-- well, it makes me hopeful that they will do their best to get him home because they've promised that and i take them at their word. unfortunately, it will never be enough until he is actually here with us. >> we've been hearing the same things for years and years, the same thing that the secretary stayed in december they said the other day. they've had almost seven years, obama administration, the last two presidential administrations, it's ridiculous he's not home by now. sandra: very difficult story. so, if you have any information #whataboutbob is being used and the fbi is offering a reward. have you received any tips as to your father's health, whereabouts, anything? >> there are always tips, but nothing that can be confirmed
8:37 am
or proven. >> the fbi's investigating. sandra: all right. well, thank you to both of you, christine and dan for joining us this morning. i wish you the best and pray for your father and your husband. >> thank you. sandra: don't forget, mornings with maria starts every day 6 a.m. eastern on the fox business network and before we go to break here are some of the best moments from the morning if you missed earlier in the show. >> for the policies are not working together, government policy and corporate policies and that's a problem and that's global, by the way, because they're buying america. everyone is trying to buy america. >> thank goodness the fox debate came soon after and neil and maria kind of raised the bar which that bar has still been set recently by what you and they have done. >> part of my prepping for the debate i was looking at the candidates' layout how they plan to protect us from these types of attacks. have you changed the password on your router, jo?
8:38 am
>> doing it right now. [laughter] it's not that hard, actually. >> there's a huge republican groundswell going on that's going to-- and especially if the markets are predicting what's going to go on in the future with the economy, we're going to -- that is a sour economy, the president's party suffers from that, we're going to do very well. >> welcome back to another tennis channel court report, a special presentation of fox business. day two of the australian open saw american success and disappointment as the first major of the year hit top gear's down under. venus williams was the big upset of the day. the number eight seed was taken out by the british number one.

is heating up as rival g.o.p. candidates donald trump and texas senator ted cruz fight for the nomination. blake burman has the latest. >> ted cruz launched his harshest critique yet of donald trump calling out the front runner by name speaking in new hampshire. cruz says immigration became a priority by trump after the businessman announced his candidacy and cruz questioned trump's conservative credentials. >> where did you stand on the tarp big bank bailout? did you oppose or support it? why did you stand op obama's massive stimulus plan, on both of those, mr. trump supported them. >> trump, who has labeled cruz, a nasty guy, made a break from criticizing him. and he made a prediction at liberty university.
8:46 am
>> we've done great with evangelicals, the tea party is amazing and i think we could surprise a lot of people by winning iowa and we're just going to clean the table. >> and trump has this evening what he is called a major endorsement to be revealed later today. and sandra he will make that announcement in iowa, back to you. sandra: all right. blake burman, good to see you last week. >> great to see you, too, great to see everybody in new york, jo ling, everyone, lots of fun. sandra: and joining us now is hoover institute senior fellow tim kaine, good morning, tim. >> hi, good morning. sandra: how are you feeling about the economy these days? if you listen to the democratic debate or the president, they're painting a pretty rosie picture of the american economy, how do you see it? >> oh, boy, it's a dicey economy. common sense knows that. i'd call it, i guess in two words, it's overstimulated and it's underperforming, so the real question, are these guys
8:47 am
going to stop stimulating?. >> well, you answer that question. we're talking potentially another fed rate hike, that would be contrary to what you're suggesting? >> no, so the fed right now is in the stimulating posture. normal rates are probably around 2%, but the fiscal side is the real concern. i was looking at the numbers, this is the first modern election where the debt ratio to gdp is over 100%. this hasn't happened in, like since the great depression. nobody's talking about debt. in fact, they are talking about rolling out plans a trillion dollars more-- >> i have to interrupt you if you watched the fox business g.o.p. debate last week i asked on stage of three candidates, huckabee, santorum and carly fiorina, i asked governor huckabee and carly fiorina how they can say they're going to tackle the nearly $19 trillion debt in this country when they're not willing to address entitlements. that's an issue. >> absolutely.
8:48 am
you know, the conversation, unfortunately, is when it's not about how to build fortress america and cut us off from the world, thanks to mr. trump, it's a conversation about taxes. i'll give them credit. there's substantive on the republican side. if republicans get elected there will be fundamental tax reform. the democrats, i'm not hearing any serious conversation. >> it sounded like a little bit of a dig at donald trump, do you not think he would be good for the u.s. economy? >> he's completely unpredictable. no, what he said about trade is just bad. i mean, a 45% tariff on china and now saying apple is going to have to-- >> he didn't commit to that in the debate. he didn't commit. >> what we're getting here, tim, and what we've seen from out of the candidates, with all due respect, we have a good field running. we have a field that's more diverse, but we're looking at people that are giving you press conference answers and sound bites. the american people are concerned about the how.
8:49 am
you've got to start making your case for a vision for america and how you're going to do it. ronald reagan won on a vision, what he would put forward, he teamed up with bush after they fought each other. we have a bunch of guys fighting each other and i look and say how are they going to team up and win? >> pretty simple, in the scheme of political battles over the years, that being said, every candidate in the republican side is putting out a frame work. that framework will actually be taken by, obviously, paul ryan with his plans, and the members of the senate, providing we keep the senate as republicans and that's a good framework to try to get some certainty for the american people. >> i agree, but the problem is when you try to do tax reform, real tax reform in congress you're going to have both democrats and republicans fighting on policy. >> sure, that's why everyone says i'm going to lower this to this and flat tax and-- >> the how, and quickly to tim's point, i think we've glossed over it. stimulation, we're not getting it here in the united states.
8:50 am
we're having the fed raise interest rates. look what's going on in europe, europe is stimulating the heck out of their economy. china this morning announced stimulation and japan is in a stimulus mode. what happens in those world economies, which represents basically two-thirds of the world economies, affects us, affects our interest rates, affects the value of our dollar. sandra: tim, i've only got five seconds left. which of the candidates, if tax reform is so important, which of the candidates has the best tax plan? >> among policy wonks, jeb bush has been the most serious. but voters aren't in the mood for serious right now. sandra: he did it in five seconds. i asked for it and he delivered. tim kaine, thanks for joining us this morning. >> you bet, thanks. sandra: dow futures pointing towards triple-digit gains on the open. look at 225 point gain in dow futures, 40 minutes from the opening bell. s&p 26. we'll have the latest from the floor of the new york stock exchange ahead of this tuesday
