kind of scenario. but in general, the improvement -- for example, china, even if it slows down to a 7% rate, it's still growing at a 7% rate. i'm not saying that's the forecast, and they still probably would be be importing in order to support that growing economy. so, really, it's really a question of degree a bit. and with regards to a lot of the emerging market economies are actually, even though, the exports demand may be softening, they have a monetary policy, and that generally is a trend in emerging market economies, so that's going to help the support domestic demand within those countries, and that in turn should be supportive of increased exports demand from the u.s. >> there is a concern that, especially with all the stuff around the world, that those come back. >> there is a risk. there is a risk. again, we've been looking at real disposable income growth, and that hasn't been as robust as perhaps the spending has. of course, that is a concern, should there be a shot. now, that will likely improve here in the near term. if you think about real disposable incomes, one of

, likely found in asia vis-a-vis china, is it doesn't work. so if it doesn't work, our pursuit of this kind of dominance hurts us as we futilely try to pull it off. so yes, israel is pushing for this, but pushing on an open door. you go back to the 2006 war in lebanon. yes, it was an israeli-initiated war, but the united states of the full square behind it. now, could israel with u.s. support have pulled off the 2006 war in lebanon if iran had breakout capabilities? probably, but they would think twice, and that's the crux of the problem. >> well, let's go back to diplomacy. there's a question for ken. it is exactly what is the deal on our firm, our deal, is enrichment at any level on iranian soil an absolute nonstarter for the u.s.? is it something we will not accept? and then let me ask a follow-up for hillary. what do you suggest as concrete steps that we can take to resolve these problems with iran, diplomatically? >> do you want me to go first? >> yes. >> what has been discussed in the three rounds concerns 20% enriched uranium as a confidence-building measure. what has been discu

nomenclature when i left high school. my father told me that in china and other parts of the world, children are educated at that level. here in america, a child goes through the eighth grade wallowing in arithmetic and they're lucky if they're through the precalculuses when they leave high school. then they have to spend their first two or three years in college, learning the calculuses and then being fluent with the engineering nomenclature. they're you're being taught by some asian or european student that's well ahead of them already. host: david, as david talked about calculus and math, as a former math teacher yourself, what do you think? guest: we don't just teach arithmetic, geometry and algebra are moved back but he makes an excellent point, we don't have the number of well trained math teachers we need and part of that is the system that underscores education. in countries like finland and singapore, when they recognize that, they do an analysis every 3-5 years and what they want to do is make public and private service comparable. not the same, comparable. so if you go into public
