, everybody knows, with china and mexico and thailand for labor reasons. their labor costs are higher. we are also at a disadvantage with canada and germany and france and the u.k. why? because when we have a fixed cost that goes up at three times thatate of inflation, means that they are becoming less competitive, and why is that? saythe entire, but let's about 75%, especially of big companies, they are paying that. the business community is paying about 75% of that. in canada and germany, the costs are also going up three times the rate of inflation. they start at a lower base, but they are also going up more than they can afford. when the cost goes up at three times the rate of inflation in germany or canada or france or other western countries, that is spread across the entire society, everybody, not just the business people. it does not just affect the bottom line of the business community. thetaxes basically support system. when it happens here, the cost disproportionately feels -- falls on the business system. this is because this was disproportionate. they have more and more troub

named china being the manufacturing giant of the twergs 21st. nothing good will come to us of that for our prosperity and our security. but in terms of mr. romney, i absolutely oppose allowing foam go bankrupt because it's something we have to do. as a nation, we have to produce wealth, farm, manufacturer, innovate. if we do not, we remain -- there's also the premise that having seen wall street bailed out with no restructuring and a failure to get credit back down to turn around and say to people that live in 90-foot lots that somehow their tax dollars are used to bail out people 90-foot yachts is acceptable, but they can go bankrupt for the effort, strikes me as tearing at the country that was already going through a volatile time. >> yet saying the u.s. was on the cusp of financial disaster if wall street was not bailed out. some of these too big to fail companies were not helped out. >> i agreed with president bush in the past. i think history will be kinder. but that was one where you had options on the table. and the big straw man was if you didn't want to throw $700 billion

about china and the visit of xi jinping. guest: i was eight -- going on a tour with a colleague, and we went to a couple of companies in new bedford. they were two companies that are in the area where we say we need to go ahead, alternative energy solar energy and how to use it, and both of them volunteered that one of the problems was on subsidized competition from china. the oppression in china is very sad. people have predicted that if the economy opened up and the internet got there, it would be more democracy. sadly, what the chinese are showing is that they can contain that and i am sorry that the chinese continue to be some disrespectful -- so disrespectful. human values, not western values. i guess we have to say this. i think china does need us more than we need them. too often, we're acting like these countries are doing as a favor by letting us to buy all of their goods. china needs us more than we need them and i think we need to be much more tougher with the chinese, saying you have got to stop the subsidy stealing other people's intellectual property. they are no longer

obama say that he did not have the leverage he needed with iran the is-a-vis china because we owed them money, the amount of debt we have is affecting our security and strength. cutting government is important. the final two questions. what is the best moment for another campaign or candidate when you thought that was really smart, and what is the most enduring quality about bobby jindal that the rest of us don't know? definitely the best moment was trumped half past -- was trumped -- trump's cap. the most enduring quality about governor jindal is he is a very kind man, and i think that does not always come across because he is god so much intellectual horsepower. rich: can you give us an example? there are times where he will call me on my phone and one of my kids will answer and he will just talk to the kids. he just takes time with people. he makes people feel at home and welcome. you go to these iowa town hall meetings and he will not leave until everyone has had a chance to talk to him. he will sit and talk to everything a person. he is a kind person. rich: thanks so much.

is worth far and money from china to pay for it. right now, a lot of things we're doing we're funding by borrowing money from other people who will demand interest and pay back at some point. for me, this is very important. is this program critical? i will eliminate a lot of programs that i like because of that test. there are programs we need to keep in place but they could be run far more efficiently if they were returned to the states rather than run at the federal level. one of those is medicaid. i would take medicaid dollars plus 1% and say to iowa, you craft your own program. you structure it in the way you think is best. you have to give the states time to organize a program of that nature. making that change in medicaid understate direction saves $100 billion per year for years out. there are 47 different workforce training programs that have been put in place in the federal government. they report to eight different federal agencies. the gao did an evaluation of the programs. they did not find any of them to be affected. these are billions of dollars of training programs. i w

wall themselves off. you hear it in their own campaigns, on our side. we have to isolate china, blaine china for everything, put on tariffs, and punish china. i do not want to do that. i am not the isolationist. they are the isolationists and they are making a lot of mistakes. >> you say you support wars with clear missions. cite some examples of missions we have been involved in where we had a clear mission. >> world war ii. it is a good example of how it works. the president did not go to war without going to congress. we knew the enemy was. we made the declaration of war. everybody got behind it. in 40 years, thereabout, we conquered and won those wars. today, it is nebulous. we do not know who the enemy is. we go to war not against the government's, but we go to war against a group of people that are causing trouble and it ends for ever. then we go into nation-building and we go to war with false information. some people call them lies. when we went to war in iraq, no calcutta there, no weapons of mass destruction. -- no al qaeda they are, new weapons of mass destruction. when we l

the world, we know that china will not pay attention to those sanctions. they will continue to buy our oil. but they will buy oil for a lot less than they are paying now. the oil will be on the market, but iran will not being -- will not be paid. that will harm their economy. >> good morning. thanks for coming. the soy from bucks county, pennsylvania. -- i am from bucks county, pennsylvania. a lot of my friends are moderate and independent. i completely agree with you on your opinion of world affairs. my friends and i are concerned about your stance on the shivo case. how do you recommend i respond to them on that? >> if you look at the republican field, all of the pro -- all of the republican field is going to be pro-life and pro-marriage. you are really choosing between -- not on the issue. you are choosing between something a little different. i would make the argument that we had president to candidates that have been pro-lifers or pro-marriage and have not been comfortable talking about those issues because they do not feel comfortable about the positions they hold. there may

and as american workers compared to china and the debt create problems for your and products? with the idea of the -- how are we supposed to compete with the labor and wages lost compared to year and over there? >> if i understand the question, can the u.s. base compete with the competitor based in a different part of the world with a different labor standards? is that the labour -- is that the nature of the question? it is an issue, no doubt about it. there are parts of the world with lower cost of capital and lower unit labor rates than we have. that's a statement of the problem, not a reason to give up. what we need to do is look at where we want to compete. there are some sectors where we cannot allow our product technology or manufacturing technology bring enough to that sector to make a sustainable business out of it and we will exit those businesses. but we have found that there are enough places thanks to our intellectual property where we can create a product that has value for the consumer in those developing regions where they are willing to pay price of the u.s. manufac

passions has been to think about u.s.-china relations in this strategic road map. i am inclined to do what steven colbert did and say you have a new book out -- what is it about? >> it is such a confusing title. [laughter] >> he won the nobel prize in 1973. you had such an accomplished and storied career. you need to members of china's release than anyone else. i am interested in how you see china today. we have the sixth generation of leaders about to take over this next year. recently, army analysts looking at the national security strategy report issued by president obama last year set a america is in strategic -- said america is in strategic contraction. i would be interested in seeing where we are going, where is china going. if you could buy stock in china, which stock would you buy? >> i would not accept the proposition. that will get us into a situation with itself producing prophecies. economically, china is obviously growing. it is hard not to admit we are in a strategic contraction when we withdraw from afghanistan and i iraq and when the national contention seems to be dev

permission in china's other is an alarming disparity. what do you think of this alarming disparity? >> are either of you following this issue? >> no, not this one. i've written a book that has a lot about china in this called, "take this job and ship it." it talks about a lot of the imbalances. china will have a significant influence on our future. what will that influence be? our approach to china has been engaging truitt trade and travel, but there's a lot that concerns me about things in china and the lack of human rights, so we keep working on it as a country. i'm not familiar with this in balance of journalists that you described. >> one of the hot ticket items right now is the israeli- palestinian conflict. which stand should be taken and why? >> i think the united states has a critical and sensitive role to play. it has been very difficult for us to take the position and is expected in the arab world as it has been with israel. i do think the solution now, as i said, is really between the palestinians and israel. the administration, this one in the previous, have taken a dif

called "if you see something say something." this is a book about america that begins in china. i attended the world economic conference in china. it involved a 3 1/2 hour car ride from beijing to a polluted crowded chinese version of the trip. but things have changed. now you have to go to the beijing south railway station. you buy a ticket from an electronic kiosks offering information in chinese and english and you go to a high- speed train that goes to another room modern train station. it is said to be the fastest in the world began in 2008. it covers 72 miles in 729 minutes. as if the convention center was not impressive enough, the conference's co-sponsors give some helpful facts and figures. the convention center had a total floor area of two 0.5 million acre-feet and construction started on september 15, 2009 and completed in may 2010. i started walking around my hotel room, counting on my fingers -- eight and a half months. returning home to maryland from that trip, i was describing the complex and how quickly it was built to my co-author michael and his wife and. and wi

-- sidelined itself is basically a troublesome prospect, whether you are in africa or china or india or others. so the bigger picture is a combination of dealing with the substantive challenges that the u.s. and europe and japan face, but also a sense about what role they would play in shaping this future international system that does, as everybody here working on development knows, have some incredible opportunities. one does not have to look at gloom and doom in this. africa has grown an average of about 5% for a decade. there's lots of opportunities there. we have private capital growing. china has grown 9.9%. it depends how you look at the world, but there are great opportunities, but they have to be seized, and we have to figure out how developed and emerging markets were together in a different way than they did in the past. bob, another news item getting a lot of justified attention is the food crisis in eastern africa, where 11 million people are at some risk in the current drought. this is everything from research on seats, including different conditions of climate change and

[chanting from the back] we have some people that want to make themselves heard. how're you doing? [lots of chanting and yelling] we are lucky to live in a country where those people are able to express their views. i love that freedom in this great country. it is best when we do it with respect and civility. let me tell you how we are going to balance the budget. we have the chance in massachusetts. this is the total contingent of republican legislators, it seems like, in massachusetts. it was 85% democrat and we balanced the budget every year. how did we do that? we went through, listed the programs, and decided which ones we had that have and some of the ones that were just nice to have, we eliminated or cut back on. i will ask the question -- is this program so essential that it is worth using money

india, china, south korea, singapore. i think our children are as smart, talented, entrepreneurial as children anywhere in the world. i want to give them the chance to compete on a level playing field. i want them to be successful. the brutal truth is that an object -- is that other countries are out-educating us. >> you can see the entire interview with education secretary arne duncan on "newsmakers," 6:00 p.m., c-span, also available online at c- >> it is a country fraught with corruption, natural disasters, and islamist extremists. >> what was really shocking to me and many people was that these assassinations were welcomed, were congratulated by many pakistanis. these are not terrorists, not al qaeda, not taliban, but ordinary pakistanis who feel that their religion is threatened, that the country is becoming too secular, that the islamic values are under attack, and that blasphemy, anything that assaults the product or -- prophet or islam is something to be defended with your life. >> pamela constable otnight -- tonight on c-span's "q&a." >> the event is courtesy of

billion, are in asia. approximately 500 million alone, 25%, are in china. today in the internet, there's not a single generic top-level domain in chinese characters or those for the hindu or arabic languages. there are country codes. we introduced those successfully starting in 2009. we have one in 20 -- we have more than 20 countries recognized with the extensions. that is a critical move in the international is asian of -- internationalization of icann in the domain name system. it is the first time that china or another country can apply for a top-level domain name in their own language scripts. it is absolutely vital. i have traveled through 27 countries in the last few months and met with companies, nonprofits, governments in 16 of those in probably close to 200 meetings over the past four months to talk about this program. i can tell you there are definitely parties interested in beijing, new delhi, catarrh -- the united arab immigrants, and around the world. there is interest around the world. there is a sense from the users around the world that this is fair and right th

, the united states will lose these jobs and canada will sell the oil to china. and we will be forced to get more of our energy from the middle east. if the president successfully blocks these new jobs, it will only add to his long list of bad economic decisions for our country. while the president may have inherited a bad economy, he has made it worse. earlier this week, in a "60 minutes" interview, the president said that he has not overpromised. his record shows otherwise. his administration projected that his $800 billion failed stimulus bill would keep unemployment below 8%. almost three years later, under the obama economy, the unemployment rate is 8.6 percent and it has been over 8% for a record 34 straight months. he promised that he would cut spending. but in less than three years as president, america's national debt has increased so much that we have to borrow almost $3 million every minute -- a lot of it from china. he promised that his health care law would lower premiums for families, but since his inauguration, premiums have increased more than $2,200. he promised to cr

to do business in communist china than in the united states of america, and when that happens, you know you are headed in the wrong direction. for us, the equation is simple, grow your economy and limit your spending. if we can do that, these issues are a lot easier to manage. that is the debate. these are two different opinions of the role of government in america. two very different views of where we should be as a nation, and between them there is very little ground -- very little common ground. when people talk about compromise, i am not against it. but it has to be a solution. if the compromise is not about the solution to buy your wasting people's time. we are not deciding whether we're going to have six judges vs 12 judges, or whether we are going to name a post office after this guy or that guy. this is a fundamental difference of opinion about what kind of government we want to have, and the answer to that question will determine what kind of country we have for your generation and beyond. much of the world has chosen to have a government that is very involved in our econo

china. the fact that so many people in congress seem to be bought and paid for. getting rid of lobbyists and corporate corrupt politicians was at the core of the ross perot message. >> this is a call-in program. we in a few minutes will put our phone numbers on the screen so you can be involved with the issue that led to see he has today. this book was published "disrupting the balance of power." carolyn barta is the author. she is joining us from her home in texas. you knew ross perot as a journalist before many people met hi. can you tell us about his roots in texarkana and what shaped the man we knew of a national stage? >> perot was from texarkana. he had an average texas childhood. as a boy he broke horses and traded horses. he was an eagle scout. even in later tonight i think he kept all of the traits of the eagle scout. he would set of objectives and goals and try to pursue those goals. he was very much in the texas tradition of the day. as he grew and went to the naval academy and started his own businesses, he was representing the can-do spirit of texas. his vision was

the globe today with china and india escalating their use of fossil fuels very rapidly is having a detrimental effect on the warming of our planet and the changing of our environment. so we are going to continue to invest in alternative energy and very frankly that is now only a -- not only a good thing for us to do in my opinion from an environment standpoint but a wonderful thing to do from an economic standpoint and jobs creation. i think a lot of jobs will be created producing alternative energy and the chinese are very much ahead of us for instance in solar panels. we need to catch up and make sure that we are doing what -- crowd? what do we want to do with solar panels? make it in america. gets $100 right over here. ok. next. >> my name is roger. i'm a plummer with local 5 here in d.c. and i have helped a lot of the people here keep this university running and the toilets flushing. one of the reasons some of them back up sometimes is bauts of what's happening on pennsylvania avenue, the lines get too full. that's supposed to be a joke, fellows. now, you know -- you ought to c
