6:02 am
you about the gem. those stories this morning. joining me to break it down dagen mcdowell, steve hilton is with us and pollster lee carter. big stories today, dagen. dagen: big stories. i was going through a lot of the headlines it's like anticatholic, groping, touching, you can't imagine that these news items are about a presidential election. hacked emails, you name it and it's all about the two people running for the white house. astonishing. maria: we have an amazing lineup. stay was. former speaker of the house newt gringrich is with us. sebastián goerka will weigh in. laura ib gram is with us, don't miss a moment of it. we have a show coming up this morning. breaking overnight. u.s. launching missiles on

6:04 am
grateful for all of the republicans who are supporting me. i want to give you something to vote for and not against. maria: donald trump threatening to sue. to reach back decades in attempt to smear mr. trump, sexual assault and sets new low for where the media is willing to go in efforts to determine this election. i want to bring in former kasich senior adviser and republican strategist. thanks so much for weighing. in -- the american people is watching reality show. every night a tape drops and wikileaks comes out.
6:05 am
it's not a great place for dem dem ri or nominees. it's almost a sad state of affairs. maria: it's also quite specific timing, isn't it? when you look at these big stories that have come out, they -- they coincide exactly to the wikileaks dump. >> that's a detraction. it's politics. that's the way it's done. there's not a lot of time here to come back and try to make a play for the middle or suburban women. that's already happening. more than raw third of the electorate would have been already voted. maria: let's talk about the allegations, what do you see it. dagen: with the allegations is a pileon of what we already know.
6:06 am
i don't know how much more damage it does but what is -- what could be more damaging to the trump campaign is the fact that -- there's legitimacy does not cover with the same headlines, with the same vigor. i'm not comparing what he's been accused of to anything on the clinton side, but i think that it bears attention. check out trump tape how democrats are using the hot mic fiasco. the seven oddest things that donald trump thinks. rnc tv ad spending for trump is zero dollars. maria: not a word about what the religious comments. maria: christians and catholics are outraged this morning. dagen: clinton campaign they
6:07 am
won't confirm or deny authenticity. repugnant comments about c cathalocism and in relation to man who founded news corp. in addition to robert thompson, jim paul mary and one of the guys from center for american progress. the things that they say in emails are repug in and about and this is a window into the intolerance secular soul of the democratic establishment and describes why it's done so little to accommodate request for religious liberty. maria: not a word, correct? not a word in washington post? dagen: the only thing that came ap story in the search. maria: they do have allegations from a woman 30 years ago and how republicans are behaving in
6:08 am
the aftermath. dagen: two main stories. maria: you were involved in britain exiting the eu and the ground swell, they wanted change do you see similarities. >> the clinton campaign and media are desperate for it to be about anything other than the big change that america needs, anything other than that because thu know that they lost the argument so the only way to win election is making it personal stories. dagen: let me just add the john podesta telling to call needy latinos. where's the front page. maria: that's not political either. dagen: i couldn't find it. not in the top stories. >> the judgment and distaken for people is to clear coming out of
6:09 am
the clinton campaign and media and yet they're claiming that donald trump and his supporters are such by gots and intoll reabt and yet on the other side look at all the people they center called idiots, deplorables, belittled. daug daig bill clinton calling trump supporters a bunch of red necks. donald trump is trying to reach suburban men. we are looking at a real-life train wreck. what are we going to do about it? maria: isn't it partly because the party refuses to stay
6:10 am
together? where was john kasich when it was in ohio? he has been proven right in where he has been. we have a nominee here who is being accused every day of sexual assault. that's not a party that i want to be part of myself. i'm more word about paul ryan and house majority. i would say localize races because the tsunami is coming against you. >> could i jump in? i don't understand why the party can't get together behind the policy agenda that trump is putting out. i just can't understand why that -- maria: he signed a pledge. >> thepolis are certainly important but i also don't think people where he is going to go with the policies.
6:11 am
in the 90's we were all against bill clinton. character counts here too. the reality is we are facing a train wreck and if we are not doing anything about it, we will lose house and senate and we have to do anything to preserve. maria: are you worried about losing the presidency? >> i think it's already done. i don't know how he can rebound with suburban women and also with suburban men too. i think this race is almost over. >> you -- it's more important to you that the person is there than the policies. you're dismissing -- >> no, no. that's not accurate assessment matters. we are talking about the presidency of the united states. hillary clinton is an awful candidate. she should not be president. there's no doubt about it. this is the problem for a lot of us republicans out here and people who have worked in the
6:12 am
party. there's not one person that we believe that's qualified to be president. but we have an opportunity to save the senate and to save the house and i'm trying to send a wake-up call to people, let's do that. maria: you have 30 days left, 21 days left to try to save the presidency as well. that's where you are right now. let me ask you, jay. >> i wanted to say to jay, you talk about the 90's, i remember very clearly hillary clinton and bill clinton sitting there talking about personal behavior and him saying what really matters is policy. i think the people will be wise enough to ignore personal behavior. hillary clinton nodding along and if it was okay in the 90's to ignore the personal behavior and mow cus on the policy, what's changed now? >> no, no, look. i think i'm on record saying character counts, you want someone with good character with -- maria: what you're saying hillary clinton's character you
6:13 am
want to see in the white house? >> no, no, please don't say that . maria: there are two choices in this election. >> we have to try to save our house majority and save our senate. that's what i want to do. i don't deal in places where i want to go. i'm a republican operative and i want to win the races and i'm sending signal around the country because we are hitching a wagon to a train that's going off the cliff right now. maria: good luck to you. >> thanks for having me. maria: live to the third presidential debate moderatorred by our own fox news chris wallace. coverage 6:00 p.m. october 19th. mornings with maria will be live from vegas october 19th and 20th

6:23 am
maria: welcome back, the fallout of a wells fargo phoney account scandal continue to go grow with the company announcing ceo john stumpf will step down effective immediately. jon hilsenrath, john, a lot of people were expecting us to happen because we haven't heard anything anything from warren if you -- buffet. what's your take? jon: this is the accountability that people we wanted to see after the financial crisis, eight years too late. basically we have a ceo here who had $41 million of compensation called back and he lost his job and people were saying, why didn't that kind of thing happened to the ceo's of banks that got bailed out during the financial crisis. i would say this is a step in the right direction in terms of how banks are overseeing and how
6:24 am
their boards are managed. maria: you're talking about tim sloan coming in. he was the ceoer for a long time. how do investors need to see this, it's in the like an outsider coming in. is it the same culture? >> it's still the top guy who lost his job and when tim sloan comes in he has to understand that his neck is on the line if the problem persists in the place. >> that's exactly right for the need of accountability and i think this is a really good example, but i think you're right. the culture is more important than the personnel, than the way policies are made, it's about what really is expected behavior. that is what really needs to change and someone from the inside doesn't send signal. jon: 9 and a half million dollars for the way it's
6:25 am
managing information disclosure and equities unit, people look at that and they say nine and a half million dollars for a bank like that, that's -- that's a couple of months of compensation for somebody's top executives. i don't think that cuts it in this day and age. maria: go ahead. >> thinking about how elizabeth warren railed on the ceo of wells fargo, what -- what do you think is going to happen now with the relationship with financial institutions? we know that there was just such a disdain, does this refer us back to institutions? jon: we saw the same thing happen with jpmorgan when the london whale trading incident happened.
6:26 am
i think the congress played a major role in driving him out in this case. you could argue about whether that's the appropriate role for congress to play or not but the fact of the matter they are in the public. their necks are on the line. maria: s&p 500 earnings expected to be down 1% in the third quarter. we have a list here. rich peterson, emergency -- energy going to be down and what's priced into this market, jon? >> well, you know, we see the strange thing when energy prices rise we see s&p 500 stock rise because energy shares are under so much downward pressure because of weak oil prices. when opec a few days ago said that they were going to cut protection, energy prices rose.
6:27 am
the stocks rose and now that's all reversing itself. maria: we will leave it there. great piece in the journal about technology. good to see you. jon hilsenrath joining us. investors eyeing election day but it's not just about the race of the white house. implications of a democratic sweep of the senate and house and markets, we have been seeing markets trade lower. politics having a lot to do with it. investing from millennials, app that's getting the support of jared and snoop dogg. back in a minute ? i'm hearing d things about the network. all the networks are great now. we're talking within a 1% difference in reliability of each other. and, sprint saves you 50% on most current national carrier rates. save money on your phone bill, invest it in your small business. wouldn't you love more customers? i would definitely love some new customers. sprint will help you add customers and cut your costs. switch your business to sprint and save 50% on most current verizon, at&t and t-mobile rates. don't let a 1% difference cost you twice as much.

6:31 am
going to have a big four years, eight years, we are going to have a big great future for our country. maria: meanwhile hillary clinton praising wall street during speeches. the fbi investigating small plane crash in connecticut. the crash was caused by jordanian national with student visa and that it was intentional. the startling details coming up. plus deploying drones, how drones are the newest weapon against fight against zika virus. then robin hood to the rescue, the hit new stock trading app that targets millennial investors has added premium services. we will discus that with the company's cofounder. futures indicating a lower opening, investors eyeing this morning. all due out later this morning, but seems to be politics weighing on the markets. last week in europe all the
6:32 am
major indices are in deep red. take a look. declines across the euro zone. the hang seng top loser, down as you see there one to two-thirds percent. wikileaks, 80-page document of clinton speech excerpts. joining us right now gfi group john, john, good to see you, thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you, maria. maria: we want to look at markets and politics with you. in a 2014 speech clinton said this, when i was a senator of new york i represented and worked with many talented principled people who made living in finance. i did all i could to make sure they continued to prosper. while campaigning hillary clinton is warning against the excesses of wall street, though, but the speech excerpts show her offering platterring words when
6:33 am
she's in front of a financial firm. so what does wall street think about hillary clinton? is she going to believe flattering, is she going to be helpful or make things more difficult? >> i don't think she's going to make things more difficult. she's probably going to make things more difficult for health care, that's why we saw health care fall 3%. she actually came out and said i have a private speech and i have a public speech. so when she's with -- add the cocktail party after the speech or before the speech she has certain things to stay to constituents and obviously during the speech she has things to say and when she's in public she has even other things to say . [laughter] >> she's from new york, she knows wall street, she knows bank, jamie diamond is here, we have goldman sachs, those are big power players, without wall street the country doesn't work.
6:34 am
if we don't -- we have the greatest capital markets in the world. we are not in a situation where europe finds themselves where the only access through credits is banks. that's a problem. maria: you said something unnerving and a lot of people out there, she says things publicly and things privately. we are trying to figure out what she is actually going to do in terms of policy and we know health care traded down but what about financials, oil, with the epa regulations, how do you see it? >> i think -- first of all, i am astounded right now that people are saying that hillary clinton is going to be the one that's going to rally the markets. i heard so many analysts say that when hillary clinton performs well in the debates, the next day the market rallies, when donald trump performs well it goes into a decline. yet she's promising more
6:35 am
regulation, higher tax codes. so i do not understand -- maria: uncertainty. dagen: the rates in the 70's. >> if we look historic democratic presidential candidates and administration, the market does better than republicans for whatever reason you want to say. so whether they're coming off allow base and higher -- maria: you had the reagan boom. >> we had clinton. i'm talking about historically since -- >> why is that? >> it's a combination. the market was already down one thing, it could be also the fact that depending on when you take office whether it's a split house, if you have congress, if you don't, you know, what do you say about bill clinton, he was able to get both sides together, he had gringrich and republicans and contract with america and he was able to get bipartisan things through. i think hillary probably may also have that ability to bring
6:36 am
people together. obviously for the last eight years we had nothing but divisiveness and it really comes from the top. the president has to get people in the room. so trump -- that's the art of the deal, the whole thing whether you think it's a myth, reality, he's able to get people together. that's what the president has to do. dagen: the money issue. if you look at the securities and investment industry, it has given hillary clinton almost $59 million, far and away more money than any other candidate. maria: they haven't given trump anything. dagen: $585,000. he is still below ted cruz, scott walker lindsey graham even carly fiorina. >> he's running as an outsider. dagen: maybe they have given a bad bet. she could easily go after a whole host of industries
6:37 am
including them if she's -- buddy, buddy with elizabeth warren. maria: look what happened to health care this week? the smart money is saying, wait a second, hillary did well in the debate, hillary is -- may win the election, i better sell all my healthcare holdings. dagen: one of the first thing she does is negotiate drug prices on behalf of medicare. >> the democrats take over the senate and right now there's ten -- ten democratic seats up for reelection and 24 republicans and president obama's approval rating is 55. so there's basically a swing that the really only need six seats and when the approval rating that the president is that high there's a probability that they're going to win top nine and average of five. the republicans are teetering on losing. maria: markets have been down in
6:38 am
triple digits now. >> that's one of the reasons since the weekend that they're worried about the democrats taking both obviously the presidential election and the senate. >> in specific sectors there's a threat from clinton but generally the economy would do better if you had a republican in the white house and house. >> we are going to get positive things for growth. maria: you're not going to get tax cuts. >> when i talk about tax cuts, i think you're going to get corporate tax cuts. maria: she hasn't said one peep. >> it doesn't matter. you're going to get all the money. we need to get people to work, americans to work. they want to get the people from the bottom up, right, they're not going to be doing a lot of things that are going to hurt the bottom. they want to put people -- construction workers, all the people hurt since the great recession, we need to get jobs back. >> is that the difference between public and private
6:39 am
positions? >> yeah, i mean, that's -- that's what we are hoping that all the money that -- the trillions of dollars that all the central banks have pump intoed the markets really has not worked because there's no -- there's nothing that's going to put that money to work. so now we need something on the fiscal side to give a push. maria: clinton is not talking about corporate tax cuts but raising taxes. >> not on corporations. there's a difference overseas money which is both democrats and republicans want and it's really up to the president to get that money back. >> she's doing that through punishing companies and trump is bringing money through lower tax rate. >> she did not say -- i don't think she wants to raise taxes on corporations. dagen: $250 billion.
6:40 am
1.4 largely on welfare america. >> that's a private, right, you have private and public. but the fact of the matter is that we need to get the middle ground. that's what the president is really supposed to do. you have circles and you need to find out where we could get agreement. >> remember the pressure that would be on her. let's imagine she wins, all the pressure on her will be coming from the left, from bernie sanders wing. maria: elizabeth warren. >> she responds from that pressure. >> the pressure worldwide globally so to get fiscal spending going and for those countries who have the ability to cut taxes and to get deficit spending to do it. that is what we are facing now because central banks are basically impitent.
6:41 am
we cannot pick up anybody when we have -- maria: right. >> the only -- regardless of who the president is, regardless who the president is, we need to have better growth worldwide. so the new normal is one and a half percent. nobody is going to be lifted out of poverty at one and a half percent. maria: that's why we are trying to see where the growth is. what's your feeling with the market right now? >> last night we had a bad china -- that's why the market is down, s&p down, technical level that is we broke, down 21, 20. the fears have gotten the upper hand right now. they're fearing democratic sweep and also a little bit of rate hike fears after the minutes came out. maria: global story of china. china weakness there.

7:03 am
accusations this morning that he sexually assaulted four women. the campaign spokesperson released statement yesterday saying for "the new york times" to launch a complete false character assassination against mr. trump on a topic like this is dangerous. joining us right now is the former speaker of the house and author of the new book treason. good to see you. >> good to see you. maria: first let's talk about this scandal and whether or not this is going to have legs? >> well, "the new york times" goes back 30 years to find somebody with a bad airplane flight. i'm happy to stipulate donald trump in the past. donald trump in the past may have been crude, if you're willing to stipulate that hillary clinton is corrupt and dangerous. maria: we were talking about how coordinated this has all been earlier. when she got pneumonia and she
7:04 am
collapsed on 9/11 ceremony, the next day we are talking about the birther issue. when debbie wasserman schultz was pushed out on day one of the democratic national convention, suddenly we are talking about russia. now we've got, you know, trump battling back from a scandal last week and now all of a sud tennessee new york times has this -- >> think about the other things that they could be covering. apparently there's a growing story that the fbi agents all believed that she should have been prosecuted. comey sold them out for political reasons. dagen: fox news reporting and no where else. >> of course. she says in her secret speech her dream, big word, her dream is a western hemisphere with no borders. none of this mean 600 million people come to the u.s. but
7:05 am
ms13, the murdering gang in el salvador, the mexican drug cartels, the colombian cocaine dealers could all come in. if trump would just slow down and focus on referendum, she has an open border for 600 million people, vote for hillary. if you think we should actually control border, vote for me. if he would just stick -- dagen: can i just add and say something, though? since the republican convention, that is actually the phrase that we have heard over and over again if trump would just dot, dot. the problem is trump -- if trump hasn't just done -- it's a traditional politician but he continually hurts himself and his own campaign. >> yes. dagen: and his supporters, newt, speaker. >> i think this is a guy who is
7:06 am
riding a wave of extraordinary hostility to washington. people who think the city is corrupt, which is it is. people who think are being soldout, which they are, a huge base -- i have been doing a lot of book signing, people who turn out are overwhelming anticlinton and overwhelmingly for trump and if he could understand. he's a very gifted amateur who has come a long way but allows his personality to get in the way of his election and that's candidly a mistake. maria: when you the mainstream media basically supporting the narrative that -- that he's so bad and she's the only one qualified, speaker, wikileaks just put out another 80 pages worth of clinton speech excerpts of her praising wall street but we are not seeing a lot of backlash this morning. we are not seeing any coverage of this and the wikileaks emails -- >> starting with somebody going up to elizabeth warren saying, now that you know your nominee secretly for amounts of money was praising wall street, how do
7:07 am
you feel about her? elizabeth warren would be the leading person -- at least half of the sanders' voters. this is a simple of trump focusing, driving the message, at least half of those voters i think would suddenly be shaken for support for clinton because she's a total liar and in there's a secret hillary who is coming out in various los angeles, frankly a very frightening person. >> in her own words she said that. >> yeah. >> we were just talking about this. when donald trump is pulled out loud over the telephone, he has a different result than when you do an online poll. when you talk to people on focus groups and out loud versus what they where down in private. totally interest result. donald trump is outperforming his polls by about 6 points. why is that? >> the elite media -- it's not
7:08 am
that they are for hillary. the elite media is hillary. they are the left. they are the establishment. you lived through this with brexit. they are doing anything they can to suppress the vote. luckily we have a secret ballot. we will see trump run ahead. the last cnn poll who over sampleled democrats was taken over the debate. his support comes back dramatically after the debate, yeah, she is a liar, she stands for terrible policies. you are seeing in the article this morning which didn't make page one, the afghan army is crumbling. the clinton-obama strategy in the middle east is
7:09 am
disintegrating in our eyes. >> how in the very few days left do you feel that he can get to that big question of delivering the big change that the country needs and getting rid of thishe? how does he do that when you have day after day have stories coming out? >> part of the wall street journal editorial today about the anticatholic democrats -- dagen: i actually read from last hour. >> again, goes back to wikileaks which is, you sudden realize that top people in the clinton campaign are deeply anticatholic and antichristian and you say i wonder what kind of -- dagen: antifaith, regardless. if those remarks had been made about muslims, president obama would have a press conference about it condemning what had been said if it was a republican who made those remarks.
7:10 am
>> i would imagine remarks about gays andless -- lesbians. >> she goes high when everybody else goes low. >> 800 people in brooklyn consciously propping her up and giving her the next talking point, the next clever language. but the challenge she faces in the end, all coming out, in the end she is a liar and in the send she is corrupt and policies are a nightmare and in every case for the wrong things. maria: i was happy to see paul ryan come out aggressively against comments on catholics. let's talk about the current speaker of the house. you were in the seat. i want to know what you will be doing at this moment. paul ryan is continue to go slam trump -- he's being slammed for wavering support of trump.
7:11 am
listen to this. >> wouldn't you think that paul ryan would call and say, good going. in front of just about the largest audience for a second night debate in the history of the country, so, you know, you would think they say great going, don, let's beat this crook, no, he doesn't do that. there's a whole deal going on. i mean, you know, there's a whole deal going on and we are going to figure it out. i always figure things out but there's a whole sinister deal going on. maria: what's the deal, speaker? >> first of all, let me say about trump who i admire and try to help as much as i can. there's a big trump and a little trump. he's mad over not getting a phone call. i mean -- maria: he's not getting the support 27 days left.
7:12 am
>> listen to the whole package there. donald trump has one opponent, her name is hillary clinton, her name is not paul ryan or anybody else. it's hillary clinton. donald trump makes the case because the elite media won't and has to make a clear that's unified, simple the people in the staff. my advice to paul ryan, yesterday he took a step in the right direction. focus on defeating hillary. i would say focus on defeating hillary. you don't have to focus on trump. dagen: on that point, we had a former adviser on the 6:00 o'clock hour and said it's over and donald trump won't win. >> he helped kasich to get through one state. i love advisers who have no clue about america. you look at consequence of hillary presidency which end america as we know it, you look at the radical on her court, her dream of open borders, et cetera, be hillary. if you happen to get trump as president in passing because you
7:13 am
beat hillary, fine, don't spend any energy spending trump. spend energy beating hillary and if ryan would do that, trump would be happy. maria: do you think he could still win this? >> trump? >> iyeah. >> it's very much like brexit, austria election. all around the world, no, i'm not going to vote for establishment thug that's corrupt. maria: newt gringrich, former speaker of the house. newt is coming back because we are going to taug about his new book called treasn maria: moderated by fox news chris wallace, special prime time coverage that week will be at 6:00 p.m. eastern and we will be live on mornings with maria

8:31 am
house, not there long, he ought to be there working and fixing some of these horrible trade deals and bringing jobs back to our country, not campaigning for a crooked person. maria: plus, the halloween costume for an unlikely person from the debate. and a storm taking aim at bermuda. the maker of dove shampoo unilever is blamings cost on the u.k. leaving the european union. get into the spirit. if you love jim beam, you may want to buy extra bottles. the kentucky union workers are threatening to walk off the job. we've got the strike threat. an an opening for the broader average, down 100 points. investors are looking at jobs numbers hit the tape moments ago and import prices.
8:32 am
initial jobless claims unchanged at 246,000, just on the tape. import prices up 1/10 of a percent. in europe the major indices are in the red, 1 1/2% on the cac quarante and solidly negative. investigato investors are mixed. and the weak trade data set the markets because indicates again evidence of a slow economy in china and that's in many cases going to impact the rest of the world. the hang-sang was down. and the policy meeting showed that a rate increase may be coming soon. peter barnes is in philadelphia, with the president of the federal reserve bank of philadelphia, that's patrick harker. over to you, peter. >> hey, maria, thank you, and pat harker, thank you for joining us on fox business. i want the first question out of here, the news today is about the resignation of the

head of wells fargo, john stumpf. bank said that its employees opened 80,000 phony accounts here in the state of pennsylvania. your reaction. >> well, first, welcome to the philly fed. >> thank you. >> so, i think it ultimately falls into the hands of board of directors of any corporation to make the decision that's right for them. we as a regulator. what we care about is companies, organizations, banks, have the proper risk management and property audit capability and their board is fully engaged. in this case they made that decision and i believe that decision was right for them. let's move on to monetary policy. you went through the september meeting. fomc, the policy committee chose not to move the benchmark fed funds rate. got another meeting in november, another one in december. you've all talked about probably trying to have one more rate hike this year. but you also have a data point which is the jobs report last
8:34 am
friday of 156,000 new jobs. with that in mind and the other economic indicators, where is your head at right now, as far as the next rate move? >> so, i was supportive in september of a rate move and i am still supportive by the end of the year of having one rate move for a couple of reasons. one, the labor market, as you mentioned, continues to be strong. some say 150,000 jobs is not strong. but it's well above what we need to maintain the unemployment rate at or near the rate. we're seeing signs of range increase and core pce starting to move towards 2%. so i'm supportive of a rate move this year. >> could that mean november for you? >> it could be. i won't take any meeting off the table. >> you're not a voting member of the fomc, and you start in january for the first time as a voting member. so, the economy to you seems where? is the second half stronger
8:35 am
than the first half? what numbers are you looking at and how do you think the economy is progressing? >> for the second half, i believe it's stronger than the first half. generally, things are going well. the labor market continues to perk along. not everything is perfect, but it's strong. if there's one weakness, it's business investment and that's an area that we continue to monitor. >> you have also been concerned about the issue of the labor force participation rate, which is still at kind of 40 year lows and ticking up. you're giving a speech later today about the labor force participation rate. what are you going to say? >> we're not going to see a tick up any time soon. if anything, we'll see another 2 percentage point decrease, we, the baby boomers are retiring and not reentering the work force.
8:36 am
>> what about in the labor market, the wage growth is starting to pick up, but it's not been as strong as say, janet yellen, the chair, has been looking for. we also saw a little bit of soft -- inflation is still under your 2% target, but where do you see those going? >> i think we're seeing some wage pressure, we're seeing that anecdotally throughout the third district. one hospital in the district 9% increase in wages for nurses, can't find nurses so we're starting to see that pressure build up. >> what is your forecast then for gdp growth this year going into next year and where do you see rate hikes going into, say, 2017? >> our best estimate is that gdp growth will be about trend this year. >> 2%ish. >> maybe higher than that comb given the third quarter. going forward.

we still have a problem in that the neutral rate, it's low, but that's not what monetary policy can affect. we can create the environment for healthy economy, but ultimately, that is-- to move that productivity has to increase, right, and other things have to happen which is really outside the realm of monetary policy. >> fiscal policy and-- >> immigration policy. think about the labor force, we're starting to run out of people in some ways, right? and many people entered the work force, we've seen if you think about the course of recent american history. women entering the work force going from 35% labor participation to 60% labor force participation. there's no other big group that's going to show up in the labor force and we're retiring. so, i think immigration is a critical component, especially high skilled immigration, a critical component of continuing economic growth in

this country. >> and back on rates. i did ask about your outlook for 2017, 2018, the latest fed forecast for september showed that you and your colleagues are projecting a couple more rate likes next year and a couple more after that. does that sound right to you? >> you talked about making sure the fed does not fall behind the curve here. what are your concerns about that? >> as we know through history. when inflation starts to take off it, takes off quickly. i'm concerned about a gradual path, i think that does less damage and various organizations and industries and companies can adjust to that over a slow pace. if we try to do it rapidly, i think we can cause some damage to the economy. >> well, we heard from your colleague bill dudley in the new york fed say yesterday that he thinks that this economic expansion, we've heard this term, room to run, has a lot of room to run and he's talking maybe five more years of
8:39 am
economic expansion before the responsibility of recession, what do you think about that? >> it's always hard when a recession will happen and i won't even attempt that. is there more room to run? probably, we need more outside of a monetary policy to make that happen. >> what about financial stability issues? are you concerned about bubbles anywhere or the equity markets, the bond markets, your colleague is worried about commercial property values. >> we're worried about that, too, we are starting to see cooling off in the development of multi-family units and i think that's a healthy sign. >> one more for me and back to maria for a possible question. we saw home sales, existing home sales seemed to play plane off a little bit. is the housing recovery over or how do you see it? >> i think a lot of that is due to supply and what we're hearing from all of our contacts is there's just not enough supply.
8:40 am
>> maria, do you have a question for pat harker. maria: yes, i want mr. harker's commentary on the business segment. we're seeing businesses sit on cash and obamacare, what's holding business back from spending? >> yeah, what's holding business back from spending? businessing the kind of investments you were talking about. what's the problem? >> i think there are many factors, two that come to my mind is uncertainty. 18 months ago i was on two corporate boards. in uncertainty you're going to hold off until you take a prudent risk ap there are a variety of risks out there. secondly, i think, and there's evidence to suggest that given how low the rates are, if you have capital to invest, either

in plant and equipment or in an acquisition or in a stock buy-back, the least risky thing for many firms is the stock buy-back. while it's rational for the firm, it doesn't help economic growth in the long run. >> or the dividends, return shareholders. maria, anything else? do don:. >> let me ask one more question, there's a question every day about the chance of recession. what are the chances of recession in 17 or 18? >> maria wanted to know what you think at least in your outlook for the economy and the prospect of a recession, do you see any signs of the economy weakening down and any possibility of recession in 2017 or 2018? >> no, nothing beyond what we see in any year. >> slowly, plug along? >> exactly. >> patrick harker, thank you for joining us on fox business today. maria, we'll continue our conversation with pat harker for a little bit of our web

8:43 am
are they hiring unproductive workers? that's unlikely. all right, so, there's probably a little bit of mismeasurement there. how much, we don't know. >> the economy changing that. there you go, maria, got your question in, back to you. maria: thank you so much, peter barnes with pat harker. bermuda is it bracing for hurricane nicole. and ken bone and his red sweater and his highlight at the debate. a company is looking to cash in on the craze. we'll look at that. guess what guys, i switched to sprint. sprint? i'm hearing good things about the network. all the networks are great now. we're talking within a 1% difference in reliability of each other. and, sprint saves you 50%

happened and they never say anything. this is like brexit, folks, we want our independence back, our borders strong. maria: in the race for the white house, donald trump is drawing inspiration from britain's decision to exit the european union. steve hilton is with us, you're a former david cameron advisor, and the u.k. voted for independence and trump wants the same in the united states. parallels. >> to make clear i was a david cameron advisor and broke with him and decided to go back and campaign for brexit so we're not close anymore. to put it mildly, there are two similarities, the underlying issue, what you saw with brexit and what you're seeing here, the reality more than a decade now you've had many, many millions of people who are on the losing side of the big changes in our economy through globalization and technology, and they feel they've been completely ignored. whoever gets elected, nothing

seems to change in their lives and they've had enough of it. that's the underlying reality. in terms of the campaign, the parallel, the way it's not socially acceptable here to say that you're supporting trump because of the shaming that's been going on from the media and elsewhere and exactly the same in brexit. if you were on that side of the argument, i got this personally, you're described as a racist, a xenophobe, you want to pull up the draw bridge and shut the world out. it was different from the reality, but that's what the establishment did to people who were on that side of the argument. dagen: steve, there's a difference, they were voting for a concept. voting for a leader, you're voting for an individual and that's where some of trump's comments and different here versus brexit. >> i believe that's a big mistake in making, saying we're about taking donald trump down. it's not just a man. this is a movement. and while it is true that

ultimately you have to vote for the person, i think most people here are reacting to the idea, more than they are to donald trump. maria: the supporters are looking at his policies and were the polls as tight as they are here in britain when you were getting close? >> it was-- there was very similar and very fluid. towards the end, it got really tight and those of us who wanted brexit suddenly felt more encouraged and the dramatic event, you remember the terrible murder and that kind of stopped all campaigning and felt that the momentum had changed, but in the end, the polls right at the end were showing a clear win for the onces that wanted to stay, brexit would lose and then on the night it was shock to the markets in particular who had been given this polling information that brexit was going to lead.
