5:21 pm
hand over her correspondence to congress. in a statement, clinton gave 0,000 emails to use. her team decided which to use. they deleted 30,000 personal emails, and they say like the server she has handed over. there's a good chance that the fbi can recover those. >> it's a lot harder to delete than people think. by default, when you drop something in the trash or click delete, the actual data isn't erased. >> clinton has been making one point. >> there's no classified material. >> she says that often. >> i am confident that i never received or sent any information that was classified when it was sent or received. >> but the inspector general said of the 40,000 emails that he was allowed to see, some had sensitive information, so sensitive that it couldn't be

5:24 pm
start a currency war where countries keet with each other to lower exchange rates. in malaysia and new zealand, they have already seen the currency tumble. joining us now, the author of a book called the public collapse of china. we welcome you to the news hour, and is this a one-time move from china? >> it might be a one-time move from china. devaluation on tuesday, 1.9%, but they also said that they were also going to essentially allow the rates to be afloat. and what we saw on wednesday, the currency come down, and we're going to see this for a very long time. because china didn't do a one big devaluation, which would scare away the speculators, but what it has done is play out. so this could be for months and years as basically, the chinese try to dump their currency and
5:25 pm
move into dollars. >> and what does this mean for the rest of the globe? >> well, the effect is what we saw. stock markets around the world tumble. occurrences fell. and also, commodities dropped. so this has basically affected all asset classes. the only thing that really survived were treasuries. because they're now the safe haven, and clearly, i think that we're going to see even a more pressed russian to the u.s. dollar. knock off for china, this could be the end of what we know as the chinese economy and the chinese miracle. the crises come one after the other, and i don't think that the chinese leaders can manage this. this is a very difficult situation for them right now. >> we heard chuck schumer accusing them of playing games with the currencies, and a currency war, and are we getting ahead of ourselves
5:26 pm
here? >> well, there's a currency war that started in asia. so that is a fact. that's not a prediction. so in terms of what china has done, for decades, it undervalued its currency and schumer is correct about this, but right now, the currency is probably overvalued. and the refine, they're making political decisions toy it high, and what has occurred in the last two days isort start of an adjustment to come back to sort of a market rate. but clearly, china doesn't want its currency to freely float, because that would really cause a problem. right now, for instance, you have in the last 12 months, $800 billion in capital has left china, according to one report. $520 billion according to another. and whatever it is, it's a lot of money, and so clearly right now, beijing is very worried about what could happen. >> and gordon, china is also under pressure and has been for
5:27 pm
some time, based on the stronger domestic demand. and is it anywhere near achieving that goal? >> well, the only way that it's getting to be near that goal is that growth from inspectors is falling, but in terms of the absolute value of consumption, there have been increases, but not that many. the real problem right knew, the chinese economy is not growing at the 7% that they claim. it's probably only growing at 1 or 2 if at all. and that's the problem right now. the devaluation of the currency and the falls in the stock market, those are symptoms of a much more structural problem, and beijing's leaders don't know how to deal with that. and going forward, i don't think that they will be able to rescue their economy x. six months from now or sooner, we're going to be talking about pretty horrific news coming out of china. >> from new york, gordon, thank you very much for joining us
