tv The Willis Report FOX Business July 20, 2013 2:00am-3:01am EDT
that is our show, thank you for coming. we will see you next week. [applause] ience, everyo have a great weekend, thanks. >> hello, everybody. tonight on "the willis report." a dna test to know your medical future also tracking teenagers when they are behind th wheel. how do you do that? and 95 years old, more fit than men have his age. he is here to tell us. we're watching out for you on "the willis report." that and more coming up, buthe top story, the battle is on for what is leftf detroit.
pension fund, union and debtholders scrambling for their cut afte the city declared itself bankrupt. but what is haening in detroit may not stay there. it could have big implications for the rest of us. with us now from the froline rategy company and with yard advisors. am going to start with you, this is onof the most talked about baruptcies before it even happens and certainlyhe largest that happened not too long ago. wh do you make of this? >> it is a tale of twoities if you don't mind me. stockton was a perfect storm of a very intense time of overspending, overpromising and under developing where troit is a systematic breakdown what would have been progressive polici in the socialgenda front. i grew up south of detroit in
ohio, went to the city on a regular basis. it was a magnificent place. to see it deteriorater you have a a huge pension obligatio, the fact the tax base has left metropolitanar, buildg up over the las15 to 20 years, it is the perfect storm. gerri: here is what ck snyder said. >> hat'll come through the process, the point is anybody buying bonds should be aware of the financl challenges. we want to work through this, get that done. gerri:aving big effects, what do you make of the governor's statement, what he had to y
about this. what he is saying is quite dangerous. he has characterized the general obligation bondss being unsecured creditors of the city, and i alwayselieved and i think the market believes the past 1 years they are obscured by the municipality. very dangerous precedent he is trying tset here. cheryl: emergency city manager is proposing bondholders get cents on the dollar. >> the same thg the stockton case earlier th year where they basicallyided with the city and calpers, the large pension fund for state workers in the statef cifornia. of course the bondholders get a haircut and the problem is you have to find some sort oequity or penalty here.
they got the bondholders, who is going to invest in cities and municipalities if they know they will get it? gerr detroit has been a mess. the city in big trouble, some people have left, population declining. you cannot even get a cop or a famine to your house inside of an hour. the problems go way beyond muni bonds, right? >> absolutely. they are justhe finymptom of the collapse it detroit is mess, it has been a mess, on trial for everything wrong with urban america. your heart has to go out to these with the you think deserve the pension or not.
they are now in a situation where they don't know if the will continue to gethe pension that they have relieupon to live. it is veryompetent a situation and won't be sorted out quickly. gerri: we have to haome sympathy for these people, but the city overpromise and under delivered. people are not paying their water bills, their heating bills, at the end of the y the cityhas made major mistakes on eay and if anybody was to pay, it has to be the local government. >> here's where get down to the crux of the probl. not just in califora, but with detroit aneven bigger cities like los angeles that have a looming pensio problem. not that we don't el for them who have been promed in the past, if t money is not there, somebody will have to renegotiate. that is what banuptcy allows
them to do. if it's a hacut so somebody can get the same kind of penalty in the end we would have a much more successful outcome. gerri: i don't know. this is going to be a big fight. a dge todaso this bigoted filing is unconstitutional. yolook back, gm was in bankruptcy for s weeks, how long is this thing gng to last r the ci of detroit? >> this is a complety different kettle of fish. chapter 11 for corporations, it is a different thing. the other poini want to make is 18 or $20 billion of debt outstanding liabilities outstaing. a huge amount of money and to your point about it being a low tax base, that is true. only 13,000 per year.
you do the math, 17 billion is a huge number. gerri: cities go up and cities go down thk you for coming on tonight. onto our other big story tonight, the sec has slapped llionairhedge fund manager with insider trading with related charges. the most invested ever. fox business senior correspondent charlie gaspino and thor of circle of frids. the government has been after this guy for a long time, you predicted it, s this a surprise? >> no. they were ramping up the failure to supervise gaze. what is fascinating is it is along the lines of what they did with jon corzine. you don't have to charge the target with fraud. just if you have enough evidence failure to supervise and bring with it all the palties of a
fraud charge. stevehe will be charged. it is on their home court. if you are betting, in 1995 told me what do you think about detroit, i would say that against detroit bonds because at place is a basketase. in 2008 i uld have told you they are going bankrupt beccuse the whole auto industry is going bankrupt. the chances ofim wning are about as high a detroit. he has great lawyers, he makes a compling case. gerri: why dn't they charge him with insider trading? >> we didn't have insider trading. if you believehe folks, they have both been indicted.
portfolio manager and if you believe they did sething wrong, and thgovernment clearly did, the guy they dealt with has done something wrong. they don't know that, they don't have evidence he got from them that link them to the insider trading. they don't say i have insider information. what we believe is they have conversations, they talk about things and he doesn't take the next step like how di you get that how do you know for sure in his case how do you know for sure that the two stocks he got information that they were going to probably tank because they had unfavorable res, how did you know it s going to tank?
that is an obvious question. what is fascining is just how muchower the sec has even without a fraud charge they can take you out on failure to supervise and that is what they're going to do here. gerr is it surprising in this case? >> they think this is them talking not me, they think he runs a criminal organization with a mpliance all ththese op doad stuff. gerri: there has been no crimal charge, correct? >> they believe they do all of these bad stuff, the compliance is to protect the man in the middle. there may be a charge against the firm. still a potential for a charge against steve cohen.
i don't think this is the last straw here. i think there is more to come. i think there is a chance, they ll charge the fm with some sort of ariminal insider trading case ainst the firm. more than a theoretical chance is to pursue steve cohen on some charge. they have given up on the criminal charge on the case, ich is true. if he flips,aybe they can get something on him. therere's other stuff they're still looking at. ey believe this company has operated ia very shady fashion they should not be allowed to exist and the compliance is there as a cover.
if you don't believe my report, he did not mention him by name but he alluded t them. they speak in code. gerri: it is a fascining story ory. really appreciate it. unbelievab. weill talk about how soon dna testing could be available to everybody at a low cost. the latest technology you can use to track your teenage driver coming up.
die in car crashes. in a third of those crashes back in 2011, now there are new forms of technology where pants ca monitor their kids when they are behind the wheel. so howo u do that? great to see you. the talk about technology being a bad thing when you're driving, but this may be the exception to the rule. >> absolutely. i first told my kids, you are stalking me. i am not stalking you. it opened up a conversation about my experiences in driving and what they had. they agreed this makes sense. i will not monitor every single thing you're doing, areou speeding, their highways and downtown, maybe someplace quitted longistance c c create invisible fences for th.
thopenf a nversation for a contract between them. they knew what i expected, and what they were supposed to do. if y have an accident or if you are caught speeding you lose the car. cheryl: studies have shown those were monitored by by their parents do a better job driving. they're more careful, they drive slower. i would have to think you would be darn mad abt it. the whole point is to get away from mom and dad. >> it isbout the freedom but you can still be able to monitor. there are a lot of different systems that do a lot of different tngs. have them uderstand speeding is illegal besides the fact it is dangerous. you have other thingto be concerned about, but if your kids have an accident that is a health issue that could last the rest of their life. gerri: tell me about this. >> ford offe something called
mikey. it allows you to restrict the mileage. you can seek only drive around downtown, i will limit your speed limit to 45. you can s 65, liver agreemt you have, e best part of this is if you take off the atbelt you lose the radio. music is so important to this generation, to take thaty. gerri: what is this? >> to have speed limitsallows you to monitoria e-mail, text messaging, this is great, this is really important, you can drive my infinity, here are the restrictions i am imposing. gerri: why don't we use onstar? >> a gm vehicle only, available
on the new vehicles coming out. actually we ha an program, hover ey added a family link allowing family members to see where the her ones are. it can be really great also for wahing elderly drivers this will allow you to help them. gerri: that is a great idea. or when they drive afr dark. that is a good thing. tell mabout this one >> there are a bunch of different things. so many different ones. making sound systems. they are linking into the onboard diagnoics, underneath the --dash. you cannot get text messaging or e-mail alerts don't come in. greafor keeping the kids hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
gerri: i understand more teenagers die from driving and texting than they do drinking and driving. anything elsyou like, yass, get tested? >> whether you have an android or or an iphone, there is a drive cera, veryool. they have it on their website. emergency braking, the geforce will record the last few seconds before the accident. to prove it may not beour fault and good for parents who say maybe you di't have an accident but you are driving a little fast. ways to open up conversations. maybe multiple tools would work in your kids cases having something that block cell phones and kee an eye on what they're doing and where they are going. gerri: thank you for coming on in explaining.
gerri: wt are your jns genes teing you about your heah? tonight is partly ongoing user's guide to health care, we uncover the potential inside your dna. angelina jolie made headlines for having a double mastectomy after dna test revealed she had an 80% chae of developg breast caer. but is dna testing right for everybody? and is it worth the money? trek to the genome research institute. welcome to the show, have to tell our viewers you are actually a celebrity in the worlof science because you are at the forefront of mapping the human genome and i think people are really interested in wt you door a living. tell us, if you will, d testing back in the headlines, she thought she was very likely get breast cancer as a result of genetic testing.
is this the right diagnosis witr the right way to dinose any disease? >> it is not necessarilyhe case for any disease. in a situation with angelina jolie, it is a genetic defect we know predisposes someoneo very high ris for getting breast cancer, anone way to avoid it is the kind of treatment she decided to undergo. gerri: the test for thisscost $3000 a t of people y why is this so expensive, why does it cost so much money? >> that will likely change. the reason was one company basically offered that test, others were not loweto becae of intellectual property constraints associated with it. we have a recent supre court ruling i suspect we will talk abouthat
over the last 10 years has been remarkable new advances in how we can look at dna and basically sequence dna for diagnosticsnd that will reduce the cost of looking at one partular gene. gerri: i asked before we n diagnose any disease th this kind of a test. what can you diagnose and are all diseasesn the genes or is it nature versus nurture? >> practically everyingle disease th he would name, there is evidence at least genetic component, i not an overt genetic cause. the is both, environmental contribuons and genetic contributions. gerri: you can do this onli pay $99, gethe kids, basically spitnto a box, the analyze your dna.
how adequate is that? >> there are specific known differences in dna between people and tat, they can foinformation about possible disease risk of various types. that is st a preview of what the future will bring quite affordably not for $90, but a few thousand dollars now to every single letter in your blueprint. that eventually will give us much more powerful information thaand to get aubset of those letters. gerri: you have done this coming only answer to the question with yourself personally. was it personal or negative? >> i he never had my dna sequenced. gerri: if you have not h your dna sequence, you don't know all the mysteries of your dna, how long are you going to wait? when would be the right time to have that kind of work done?
>> that is a great queion, could be pmpted if i had a medical condition whe i would feel i would gain new information. i have not had a circumstance wherit would change anything i am doing. i rely on family history. i ke sure to be checked by my dermatologist once per year. i know my family history. gerri: thank you for coming on, absolu pleasure to have you on the show. thank you. now we want to know what you think, wld you want to know if you are predisposed to chroc illness? vote on the right-hand side of the screen and we will share the resus at the end of the show. i will intduce you to a man that will make you think twice about coming up with an excuse not to xercis he is 95 and running and winning awards. and next, more of the user guide to health care for everything we have learned how to manage everything from talking with

>how would you know that? your ld had a sinus surgery, and, obviously, the second procedure was a lot more money. we sorted through this all the time. rri: just because you have a doctor and a provider, you can trust with your health and money, that doesn't mean you shouldn't still shop around. prices for procedures vary incredibly, and just going to a different provider across the street, well, it could save you hundreds of llars, if not thousands. health care blue book's ceo
doctor jeff bryce and the ceo explained why the procedures cost so much, and rich wilsn, a business executive from nashville gave a real life story how he saved money on a medical procedure. >> prices it very difficult to determine in health care. there's not a direct relationship the wayou find in other industries in terms of the quantity of health care and how much you paid for it, and in particular, the quality aspect is a lot of times missing. typically, the way pricing is determined is volume. >> not in this case. >> it is difficult to deteine with the codes involved to create thatost it is tough to rovided estimates with commeial insurance for common health care surgery it is tenfold
with $700 in one building. >> i looked up the of their price of the mri. >> what is interesting is the site showed what was right in fnt of me with saw high price $1,700 to the low of $500 and. gerri: did you take a back >>hey had a list of actual providers on the site that would do the procedu for 00. so white called one of the facilities and confirmed they would do it at $500 so feeling impulsive at that point i said is that the best that you can do? and tomy surprise she said
