6:05 am
detected they provide the basis for illicit gain adding specifically to test failing component which was patched promptly at the discovery and exploited, resulted in access to nonpublic information. "the wall street journal"'s global economics editor jon hilsenrath are not. good to see you. thanks for joining us. let's go right here then i will ask about the fed. >> we are still finding out what is interesting is this happen in 2016 and we are just learning about it now. what we think happened here is hackers got into filing system through which companies can put out all of the reports, 10 k., quarterly reports on a new report and there's a number of different things that might've happened. hackers might have been able to
6:06 am
get their hands on this information and trade on it before it got out in public. you know, it's also possible as sec chairman clayton says that they can sometimes put out false statement. but there was a case a few years ago for a trader in bulgaria put out a statement about a takeover offer on avon and was able to make a few thousand dollars. the author never happen. it was fate. he traded on the uptake on that. you know, willie sutton once said he brought back more than money is. but we're seeing right now is forever the information has come at us for hackers we've got equifax and now the sec. maria: debut for more more than four months before security uncovered the mass data breach. in terms of its echo effect
6:07 am
story, this is getting worse. >> yeah, it sounds like what happened that this is part of the game hackers play, but basically they got into the system in march of this of worked around for a few months. we described in our story of someone breaking into an office and tried to find the doors were the knobs are unlocked. they looked around until they could get their hands on this trove of information worth 140 million individual files. that is the latest story there. going on for months before they found out about it. maria: obviously yesterday the fed announcing they will start cutting the $4.5 trillion balance sheet of bonds and other securities next month nearly a decade after the financial crisis in a generation. gina gallant in the economy right now. i want to get your reaction. >> the decisions that we've made this year and our balance sheet
6:08 am
or ones with taken because we feel the u.s. economy is performing well. maria: the market seemed to feel that way as well, john. >> absolutely. look, the unemployment rate down unemployment rate data for .44%. broader measures include people working part time for coming down also. the economy is on track to grow more than 2% this year. it is doing pretty well. one hang up the fed has despite the fact the economy senate predicted track, we're not getting a lot of inflation. people say why tight monetary policy when there's no inflation. they think if they don't move now to look at some financial bubble and they don't want to be behind the curve so they are taking these steps now. maria: based on what was seen in the market reaction, the dow and s&p 500 hitting all-time highs yesterday with some of a selloff
6:09 am
in treasury bonds, the deal going up more yesterday. does that send the signal to lease when you watch the fixed income market that faster growth is expect to despite the unwind or investors worried about disruption to those bond markets where you don't have a lot of liquidity to the financial crisis because of regulations and investors worry there is some major shakeup at the fed is unwinding the $4.5 trillion portfolio. dagen: you know, we had this event a few years ago called the tape called the taper tantrum with the fed was sending out signals it would stop buying bonds in the bond markets not only in the u.s. but all over the world. they have been so transparent with that, signaling this for so long that there's no sign of that happening right now i'm not one of the reasons why we are seeing stocks at new highs. a fire at the fed, the thing i would be worried about is not
6:10 am
the taper tantrum, but what happened in the mid-2000 which is the conundrum. they started raising rates and bond yields fell instead of rows and we ended up getting a housing bubble out of that. i think the word has to be the fed doesn't move aggressively enough, yet the spot market remain as they are and we get the bubbles building. dagen: another thing that happened as the fed did that kind of easy kind of easy pc stairstep of interest rate increases. wall street firms got even more creative coming up with ways to package mortgages and get people in when they couldn't afford the homes they were buying. that was a lot of financial engineering on behalf of false tree. >> dagen, i think that's a really important point. the fed is doing the same thing again right now.
6:11 am
they had this very easy pc policy back in the mid-2000 or the signal very clearly every single step. it was extremely predict the ball in got complacent and you have to wonder whether the fed is so predict will now that the markets will get complacent and do all kinds of risk-taking to end up causing trouble down the road. true three new balance as we watch this economy one step forward, two steps back in some regard. good to see you. thank you very much. jon hilsenrath. stories of survival after the earthquake in mexico city. crews worked desperately to save a little girl trapped in the rubble and there is word that they are finding more children trapped alive. the apple watch, woes around the apple watch admitting that the new device which comes out tomorrow as a serious problem. we will tell you about it when we come back. stay right with us.

6:25 am
are able to develop drugs and diagnostics. we announced our partnership with the department of defense first-ever a.i. driven product and diagnostics, which is able to help the dock during patient understand the difference between an enlarged over nine hyper coffee and prostate cancer. right now the only way to determine if a person has a prostate cancer or bpa is to do a biopsy and biopsy as you all know are very unsafe. unfortunately, the side effects can be and the tens or infections. the cost of determining if they have a prostate cancer is very high. but they are able to do three simple in a much less invasive manner, much more specific manner to determine if he has a
6:26 am
higher chance of prostate cancer. >> why is it more difficult? maria: faster. >> exactly. human biology in and of itself is extremely complex. for us to process the amount of data in the time it needs to be processed is not possible by the brain. secondly, by using a.i., it helps us develop hypocrisies and be more precise. it helps us to understand the areas in the biology with things have gone wrong and help us deliver the drugs and diagnostics in a much more effective way. dagen: this test for a cancer, how widely used willett e. and will it be available to most men who need to get tested for

6:28 am
where you let it rest. >> that's exactly right. two areas and prostate cancer. one is the population. individuals over 70, in some cases the doctor chooses not to give any therapy. it is called active surveillance. but in most cases, the only way to truly know if the individual has prostate cancer is to do a serial biopsy. you can imagine of her times of stress and attention put on that individual. with the availability of this test, an individual can conceivably use this every three months, every six months. instead of having to be a subject to the side effects and the cost of cores of biopsies, one can just take a simple blood test. très do that is amazing. we should point out you are using a.i. towards parkinson's disease. this is an exciting moment in time. good to see you.

maria: welcome back, good thursday morning, first day of fall. top stories right now 6:30 a.m. on the east coast. north korea threat in focus this morning at the united nations. in just a few hours president trump will hold trilateral summit with the leaders of japan
6:33 am
6:34 am
6:35 am
now, they're not because of their regional political issues. for example, president moon when he was running for office, he basically promised dialogue with north korea. he signed a major aid package for pregnant women and children for north korea that japan doesn't agree. he also does not want military action, he does not war military action whereas mr. abe has supported the idea of having military options on the table. now, the question is whether the
6:36 am
military option is something that they are moving towards to or something that they want north korea to move to. it's an opportunity to get heads together and see what's going to be the best solution to contain north korea right now. it's going to be a good meeting but there are differences when it comes to what the regional motivations are and how they want to approach this. i also want to mention in president trump's -- in president trump's speech he has been using so much strong rhetoric saying that he would totally destroy north korea if it was a threat to north korea or allies and the response from north korea is if he was thinking about surprising us with a barking dog, then he's clearly dreaming. the rhetoric is not working against north korea. there has to be more. president trump is talking about sanctions and the needs for countries to come together and pressure north korea. what we are seeing is china and russia really coming together on their own and sort of being an
6:37 am
opposing front, even if they are acting in sport of the sanctions and containing north korea, they really are not because what they want is take some of the power away from the u.s. and want a less of a world that has u.s. strength. >> ly mentioned -- and he mentit in the speech. it's outrageous, i think is what he said. remember the tweet that raised a lot of eyebrows really going after an ally was interesting. so we will see how that meeting in person works compare today that tweet. >> yeah, president trump is known for saying -- for saying some pretty strong words and i've always thought that was part of his businessman coming to the table that he likes to start every negotiation with very strong words and then sort of back off because then the other side feels as they though would want something in the negotiation. i always thought that was part
6:38 am
of technique but we will see what happens and what comes out of this meeting at this point. dagen: talk about moon and abe and south korea and japan respectfully, but hasn't moon been sounding tougher on defense and aligned with united states and people anticipated early on in terms of the military exercises and then japan on the other hand is increasing missile defense. that was just recently passed. it does seem as united part of the world -- >> absolutely. you have to think about people try to get elected and regional politics play a role in what they say. for moon during the election cycle he was saying things that
6:39 am
were a lot more relaxed towards any sort of military conflict with the north but then the north keeps ratcheting up and just continues and then next thing you know, south korea is saying that thaad missile system, now we are okay with that. now thaad missile system is now on the korean peninsula. so the other thing is, the military exercises with south korea. we have been doing those for a very long time. the u.s. military always makes a point these are not in response to rhetoric and what happens in north korea, these were long-time planned. look at what they are doing. they are basically practicing can south korea. maria: military exercises are being done today so the impact. >> i think the impact is we are ready for anything that may come
6:40 am
and prepared to fight and if you listen to what general mattis has to say, he's a no bs kind of document there may be questions about president trump and whether he will use strong rhetoric but not really be willing to back it up. i think when you listen to secretary mattis, he's a no bs guy and he's saying that there's a military option that would not destroy south korea, not saying what it is or we really want to get to the point where we are using it but the military exercises make a point to north korea that the u.s. and south korea are ready to fight. don't forget that china and south korea are also conducting naval exercises and war exercises just north of japan. so, you know, as i mention, the u.s. and north korea -- the u.s. and south korea, japan working together but at the same time china and russia are certainly working together to destabilize the u.s. power and power with allies in the region. maria: i think you make a great point about that. they all have political

7:33 am
very hard to give numbers but there were more total losses by quite a margin. joining me right now is the chairman and ceo. it's good to see you. thank you so much for joining us. it's pretty extraordinary. have he see what is taking place. we've had three hurricanes and two earthquakes in a months time. the suffering and the enormity of the tragedy to seek human life in our hearts go out to all these people. our job is to support them in their time of need right now. can you characterize where the real damage has been done harvey was more of a flooding event than a winter -related
7:34 am
event and i think that is the berkshire comment about more impact to automobiles. the damage it did through the caribbean and now puerto rico on the wind and rained damage. it does to people's homes. buildings to their individual lives in the is that that is the commonality of all three events. and puerto rico is without power this morning. how long does it take to recover from things like this. what would you say the damages. what is your assessment so far. no one has a great handle on this yet. among all three events anyway. let alone let's not forget the two earthquakes in mexico and
7:35 am
the tragedy of that. it's just unfolding right now. you still see the images of that. on capitol hill the government is working hard on this. you feel like the private sector could really be stepping up. when it comes to with disaster recovery that is a role for government. the government always has a role to play in that. the on the role of the private sector. but when it comes to ensuring these events. the private sector can do much more and frankly the government distorts markets and behavior of individuals by underpricing and encouraging people to live.
7:36 am
it is for a couple of reasons. one could be that they simply determined not to buy it. people who are less fortunate and therefore they can't afford it. that's where the government's role is when people are forced to live somewhere but they are exposed to live with peril. be on to the onto that it's the role for the private sector. where he you see the growth with this point. i know you've done a lot of acquisitions is that still in the cards going forward artie think the growth now comes from organic over the last 15 years. only one third through acquisitions. while i wouldn't say that were ever done making acquisitions and in that regard you stay
7:37 am
tuned. if they never make another acquisition the growth opportunity in front of us is simply enormous. and you look at the growth of economies and we ensure exposure. and as economies grow and people rise into middle incomes as businesses develop. so does exposure. our growth opportunity in the united states is tremendous. asia, latin america where we have tremendous presence. tremendous opportunity.
7:38 am
i want to ask about the broad economy. now the trip administration is working on this. one and half trillion dollar tax cut potentially. you say a lot of the customers they are to see the big impact as you see the pastor of the corporate come all the way down. tax reform for business has two important priorities. the pack system. which we don't have today. and not a territorial system. were at a disadvantage. if we in fact implement this kind of tax reform the stimulus into the economy will
7:39 am
be tremendous. and that will spur growth in business and jobs and for insurance is a growth opportunity. how do things feel for you right now. and then you got the hurricanes and earthquakes. how much a second to take the momentum out of economic growth. on one hand the economy takes a short-term hit from disasters like this. but then as stimulus after that. because of the rebuilding that takes place. the infrastructure and in replacing buildings in people's homes into the instruction material. it's a real opportunity.

8:06 am
of washington. >> the tax package would you think would move needle on economic growth right? right now the trieshgz or catalyst for this market has been fundamental backdrop seems to have improved quite a bit. >> it is three triggers one as i say overly contact economic growth has improved, mainly on account of what is happening outside the u.s., two, the fd -- the markets are very comfortable that the fed other central banks will continue to be supportive. three, there is a lot of cash, sitting on balance sheets of companies, and that gets put back into the marketplace, so those three things have been pushing stocks higher and higher. and the hope is you are going to validate prices by improving u.s. fundamentals. >> let me ask you about fed mohamed federal reserve announcing yesterday going to reduce massive 4 1/2 trillion-dollar portfolio of bonds and securities next month a decade after the

biggest financial crisis in generations janet yellen called it a vote of confidence in the economy. >> basically, that look, the economy is doing well, and -- we should start doing this, but this is something we have not seen before mohamed winding down of 4 1/2 trillion-dollar portfolio how easy this is going to be? >> so the fed intends to make iment as in exciting as possible. they wanted to make it as if we are going to watch paint dry. dull, predictable, that is how they want to make it and i think they are going to succeed because going so slow, more interesting are maria the fed continues to signal higher interest rates than priced into markets. and we saw some reaction yesterday. bond yields have gone up dollar strengthened markets starting to realize the fed still has a december rate hike on radar screen. maria: yeah i think that
8:08 am

8:34 am
approximately 40 million u.s. dollars financing ina australian equity market to help build out this mine coupled with 20-million-dollar project finance facility from bank in australia going to allow us to fully fund new mine will provide three million tons new high quality thermal coal to a local utility. >> specifically from the president orders on energy policy with a what has allowed to you create this what about infrastructure projects executive order this summer announced to try to speed up, how does it affect the you or do you need more from congress. >> sure i think a lot of positive progress in the trump administration, from testament pa's perspective department of energy, department of interior, reducing a lot of the regulations and a lot of the hurdles put in place for the coal industry. over the last administration. a lot of that has leveled the playing field more for producers as yourselves to go
8:35 am
out produce high quality products our country has in billions of tons underneath the ground, infrastructure projects again, it is very important for this country broadly for coal industry, we are going to produce a thermal coal tends to be used foreclose it be about electrical power generation not as directly impacted by infrastructure build out but our contemporaries who produce metallurgical coals for steel making will benefit significantly from infrastructure provment rollout. >> i am curious to know what you think the long term prospects are for a coal industry only there is a deregulatory move in pro coal sentiment from this administration, but there seems to be more kind of regulator regulatory whip lash differences from obama administration and this one who is to say what next administration may do do you have confidence the coal industry an sustain itself
8:36 am
given overly sentiment around climate change and things like that broadly in u.s. >> absolutely, i think while u.s. coal industry is is in decline i do think going to be a very important part of our energy infrastructure going forward. and we're going to reply a critical role as part of that, in what is i think the most well balanced base in the illinois basin from supply and demand perspective. you know, as far as regulatory within lash i think the administration has been doing has been helpful they have been rescinding some of the rules overreach on previous administration part using a specific tool called congressional review whereby when congress comes in says this rule is no, he longer valid, rather than a new administration coming in just promulgating same rule again, it will have to go back to congress would have to go through congress as with any law should normally go through obviously, congress and then up to executive branch.
8:37 am
other than regular lateing sorry, enacting laws through regulators under obama administration. >> is it safe to say trump administration saved coal industry saved jobs if not if creating jobs in that industry? >> absolutely. i think you know we're hiring right now 200 people over next 12 months to build out our first coal mine. we are going to hire another 300 we hope when we start building out second mine 20719. and -- 2019, folks out of work directly benefiting from some efforts. the administration's efforts obviously only one part of the puzzle, 2016 was terrible year for uask coal that was primarily because of low natural gas prices, and weak demand. over 2017 that improved gas prices hovering around $3 fairly bullish on them overtime that is allowed u.s. coal o producers to take the
8:38 am
more share away from natural gas as far as electrical generation, also in international markets while u.s. coal, domestically dropped international demand continued to increase i think will continue to increase through 2030 you see extremely high international prices for thermal coal metallurgical coal you haven't seen five years that means u.s. producers are able to export more excesses production that may have historically gone to some plants that have been shuddered. maria: a lot of important points i know you believe coal ahead of gas as main energy source to produce electricity what is long-term plan in terms of cleaner coal. >> absolutely i think a lot of interesting things the administration is looking at, basically, we have a great backbone of inexpensive reliable coal fired power utilities in this country, what we don't have is we don't have newest technology as far as burning that coal goes countries like japan, korea,
8:39 am
building high efficiency low emissions coal plants can take obviously carbon all other bad actors reduce them significantly from burning same coal feed stock the issue in this country our utilities have not been able to use this technology, there have been issues as far as new source review, and other regulations that inprohibit them from modernizing our facility if next five, 10 years we are able to work forward with the administration help with congress's help to go ahead bring in newer technologies can take everything so positive about coal which is low cost reliable base load power make it cleaner -- mit less. >> we will watch the story thank you good to have you on the program. >> thank you maria. >> coming up north korea threat in focus at united nations president trump prepares to hold a trilateral summit with leaders of japan south korea to being talk
