♪ welcome to "cbs this morning." charlie rose and gayle king are off so anthony mason and margaret brennan are here. >> as you wake up wall street is bouncing back after its worst day in years. the dow jones industrials gained more than 300 points and lost nearly 600 on monday. >> overseas market, china's major stock index sank another 7.6% overnight and it's fallen more than 42% since its peak in june. don dahler is on the floor of the new york stock exchange. >> we have been in the midst of quite a rally in contract to yesterday's plunge. analyst told cbs news that china's market is plunging. that has impacted global
markets. >> reporter: on the new york stock exchange, their faces said it all. floor brokers reacted as index spun into a free-fall within five minutes of monday's opening bell. >> you feel the tension here on wall street. >> it's been an extremely fast and it's happened very, very quickly. >> reporter: the dow was down more than 1,000 points in just minutes. a mid-day rally wasn't enough to erase all of that damage. and the dow closed down more than 588 points. >> is this the big one? i don't know. it's certainly noticeable. >> simply, it was a moment when somebody called fire and everybody decided to head for the door. >> reporter: oil closed below $40 a barrel for the first time since 2009. >> it caught up with us a little bit and everyone said you know what? wow. what is going on in china is significant. >> reporter: 55% of americans are invested in the stock market. and financial advisers say the worst thing to do is panic. >> short term we are probably near the bottom. long term we have a ways to go. >> reporter: economist max wolf does not think the market is headed for a 2008 repeat but says the market hasn't recovered
for those on main street. >> a lot of the gain has gone to the top ten percent. i think folks have gotten lackadaisical looking at the bottom 80% of american households. which while they have recovered a bunch are a ways below when they were in 2007 and 2008. >> reporter: the drop this past week wiped out 8.5 trillion in market value and that volatility might not be over. the fed is expected to meet next week and may raise interest rates for the first time in seven years. >> don, thanks. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is with us this morning. >> good morning. >> the excitement continues here. this is about more than china, isn't it? >> yeah. we started with china because we are worried about slowing growth there but we have to look at oil prices. crude oil down below $40 a barrel is pressuring a lot of energy companies and i think that is also a sign could be a little bit of a canary in a coal mine. is the globe slowing down?
is demand dropping? as don just mentioned, i want to point out there continues to be a lot of fear around what the federal reserve will do, when it will do it. that has gotten investors unnerved. finally, just plain fear. it has been four years since the big correction. now we've got one. i think people are looking for the bottom. they are definitely nervous and a psychological factor at play here. >> what are the argument some are making the fed should have acted a long time ago? the only place people have to put their money is in the stock market and perhaps why it is overvalued. >> i think one of the biggest criticisms of this fed and bernanke's fed the policy fosters asset bubbles. it means when interest rates are so low what can you do? i can't keep my money in cash, so, okay, i'll buy high-risk bonds and stocks and it pushes the assets higher. part of the fed's is to do just that but this is the downside. frankly what the real question now is the fed is how with they normalize policy but not unnerve both markets and the economy.
>> i mean, the time of year we are in, it's the summer. a lot of people still away. they are not necessarily active in trading. could this be a head fake or is this a real read of sentiment and nervousness in the united states? >> i think is there a real nervousness and i think among the investment community, whether you are away or you home, there is a lot of anxiety, a lot of hedge fund traders and a lot of private equity people time and they are very concerned. the first time i've heard them this worried since the debt ceiling crisis four years ago. that said, for the rest of us mere mortals out there with our 401(k)s and our 403bs you have to relax and chill out. these are the days you could make a mistake and we don't want you to be that. >> 403b? >> if you work for a school. 401(k) for a teacher. >> got it, jill. >> take a deep breath. good advice, jill. the stock market worries are spilling into the republican presidential race.
candidate scott walker is blaming china for the market's big losses. he called on president obama to actually cancel next month's state dinner for china's president. and donald trump agreed saying, i would not be throwing him a dinner. i'd get him a mcdonald's hamburger. chip reid is in dubuque, iowa, which there is trump is speaking tonight. >> reporter: donald trump was made it clear not in his so humble opinion he is the only candidate who really understands how the world works. >> i've been telling everybody for a long time, china is taking our jobs. >> reporter: that extraordinary level of confidence, critics call it ego is especially high with when it comes to the economy. >> you have to know what you're doing. we have nobody that has a clue. >> reporter: on monday, he singled out jeb bush. jeb bush is a nice person. he doesn't have the energy or the capacity to make our country great again.
>> reporter: the bush/trump feud intensified as bush headed to the mexican border and attacked trump's plan on immigration. >> his proposal is unrealistic and cost hundreds of billions of dollars. it will violate people's civil liberties. it will create friction with our third largest trading partner. that is not necessary. >> reporter: on fox news, trump fired back. >> i tell me about civil liberties we have to get them out and some of these people are causing tremendous problems. >> reporter: as bush stood by his use of the controversial term anchor baby. >> i think we need to take a step back and chill out a little bit. >> reporter: he ignited a new controversy. >> frankly, it's more related to asian people. >> reporter: asian-american democratic officials cited that reference to call bush out of touch, adding the only thing worse than jeb bush's words about immigrant families may be his policies toward them. a new gallup poll shows bush to trump.
democratic front-runner hillary clinton sought to capitalize. >> would you appeal? >> yes. >> releasing her own online video. >> don't let the circus distract you. most of the other candidates are just trump, without the pizzazz or the hair. >> reporter: jeb bush is not the only one under attack from donald trump. trump is, once again, going after fox news anchor megyn kelly, saying she must have had a terrible vacation and is really off her game and retweeted this tweet, the bimbo back in town. a new sign this morning that vice president joe biden might run for the democratic nomination. cbs news learned president obama has given biden the green light to seriously consider the run. julianna is in washington with
more. >> reporter: it's out of respect tht president believes the vice president has more than earned but josh earnest said putting biden on the ticket was the best political decision he has made. >> i think that should give you some sense of the president's view of vice president biden's aptitude for the top job. >> reporter: the president's blessing is important because if biden does get in it would be obvious with he running against his former secretary of state hillary clinton but an official tells us there are a number of mid to senior members on the obama orbit still on the sidelines who would work for biden. the intensity to his decision process is calendar driven and he is expecting a division ahead of the first democratic debate in october and tied to growing concerns from top democrats and donors about the fallout from clinton's e-mail server.

anthony is really broken up. >> can i tell you what i thought about that whole story? they are setting themselves up for a wildly popular reunion tour, am i right? >> a lot of money in that. >> what do you think? >> there is always one of those down the roads somewhere. usually a very lucrative one but i know a lot of teenagers, including my 19-year-old daughter won't be happy. a customer taunting note to a waitress in a tip line for a bill for $112. a diner wrote l.o.l. and that is short for laugh outloud and posted a picture of it on facebook and the receipt said one hour for food. the waitress called the experience cruel and unnecessary. she said waiters are often just the mess ing labor
costs. frank bruni is here, an op-ed columnist for "the new york times" and the paper's former restaurant critic. this is a tough decision for any restaurant owner. is this really a gamble on what kind of staff is going to work for you and what they are willing to do? >> it's a gamble on staff and it's also a big gamble when it comes to customers. we are so accustomed to the tradition of tipping in this country. i think a lot of customers are deeply unsettled when they get into a restaurant and find out they are not going to tip. they feel sometimes wrongly that it gives them less control over the experience and i think that is the real x-factor here is how a customer will feel about tip prices being rolled into the overall price or added automatically. >> what is the intent for restaurants to do it this year? in the past the whole idea means the tips can pay their waiting staff less because they get
tips. >> a couple of things going on. there has been a revolt over recent years what is called the backup of a restaurant. dishwashers and especially cooks and restaurants are experiencing a shortage in getting talented kitchen staff. kitchen staff ends up being paid less than waiting staff because they don't pay for tipping. if you take the tip prices and put them into the rest of the menu you as management have control over how the money is sdu disbursed and rising minimum wage laws means that restaurants are having to pay people in the back of the house more and, again, they have to come up with a different way of distributing the revenue, different economic model. >> do you think there are any waiters or waitresses would want to work by this system? >> absolutely. there is studies showing there is discrimination in tipping. blond waiters get more brunette. >> wait recesses with lipstick. >> african-american waiters get less. some waiters and waitresses i think would like this a lot because it would take some of
the random behavior out of the e occasion. others wouldn't because they feel they can use their charm to up their income. so it depends on the serve every. >> the advantage of tips as wages has been that, of course, theoretically you don't have to report them on a tax return or won't report them on a tax return and waiters and waitresses like that. so much being done on credit cards they lose that. >> right. absolutely. one of the reasons a lot of servers like tipping culture 10, 20 years ago is because a great number of tips came in cash and that has diminished to a point i think it's almost negligible how much tipping happens in cash. >> have you seen many restaurants test this out? >> we are seeing more and more all the time. here in new york, in different ways in a different cost levels, dirk candy, a restaurant downtown, per se. sushi asuta are finding different ways to do away with tipping and sometimes they are rolling what would be the tipped money into the overall price and sometimes they are adding a 20% administrative charge line. restaurants on the west coast that have experimented with one
line for tips to the front of the house and then another line that says if you'd like to leave the kitchen staff a tip. >> at the end of the day, this means -- would mean higher prices, right? >> yes. >> in terms of how much entree and appetizer cost? >> it means a higher price. the argument is what you've actually spent by the time you walk out the door hasn't changed. you just didn't do a portion of that indiscretionary tipping. >> do you think this is happening at certain specific restaurants, any chance this will spread? >> i don't know. it will spread for a while but it's hard to change decades of diner behavior. like i said i think the average diner thinks the tip gives him or her a lot of power at that table and is reluctant to give that up even reasons to do so. it makes your experience better. >> it's standard in europe? >> absolutely. i was in italy a couple of years. a tip was extra little thing. >> do you still tip? >> i try tip well.

i mean, you know, i know you know how much you've meant to so many kids growing up. it's just extraordinary. >> yeah. thank you. i found a lot of comfort when i was a child watching television, so i think that it was natural for me to fall into a show that was providing comfort. "sesame street" means a lot to many people but for me it meant an hour there was safety and comfort. >> that was important to you, why? >> because i was raised in a tumultuous environment and i would watch those children on tv land now, "father knows best" and "leave it to beaver." and it gave me comfort. "sesame street" shows comfort and order and love in a place that is recognizable to children who might be in the same situation i was. >> what was it like growing up in the south bronx? >> it was pretty tumultuous and there was alcoholism. >> in your family?
>> in my family and there was violence and there was love and there was humor. it was a mish-mosh. i found comfort watching television. >> you call in this book love and chaos in the south bronx. it's such a difference in childhood than the one you presented to the world. when you talk about that, that safe place, was there something like that for you? >> i think that i retained maria. i was the best maria i could be because of that childhood. not? spi not in spite of it. i recalls remembered myself watching television and i always remembered how it felt -- how it felt to look for answers and try to put two and two together. i was the kind of kid who would find shapes in the cracks in the ceiling and the blaster and hero "sesame street" is animation where kids are encouraged to find shapes where they were not obvious to the viewer.
so it was a perfect fit, i think. >> you ended up getting a scholarship to a school in pittsburgh' came to broadway, original cast of "god spell." >> yes we did that as a student project. >> there couldn't have been a lot of parts for latina actresses in new york. >> there was none. when i grew up, there were no latins in television or in the media and no black people either. so i did "god spell" and when i got the call for "sesame street," i was absolutely thrilled. i can't say there were a million actresses going up for the part, but i was the one who lucked out. >> i have so many questions for you. do you have a fiveavorite muppe? >> yes. oscar the grouch. >> really? >> yes. because i think he brings nuance and when i'm talking to him, i can't tell if he is 8 years old or 48 years old. >> was it tough acting with muppets? >> oh, sure. my first muppet that i had to act with was grover. i kept looking down at frank,
the puppeteer at my feet. he said, don't look at man down there! look at me! and carol who plays big bird, don't be nervous. only millions of people watching you. >> what do you think of "sesame street" transitioning to hbo? >> it's been on the air a long time and "sesame street" has always reflected the times it existed. it came out of the '60s and civil rights movement and very idealistic show. i think its move to hbo it's still mirroring the society we are living in. if i criticize anything, and i'm not, i would criticize the times we live in and not the show. >> now that you're retiring, what are you going to do next? write more? >> i think i'll write more. i love to put mice sensibility in books. i have another children's book, picture book that is also going to be released in september, in addition to becoming maria.
