you hope that something maybe will get done about it. >> reporter: the names of the alleged cheaters have not been disclosed. but the reports leaked to the bbc and buzzfeed are based on documents that identify more than 70 players suspected of throwing matches. but which players? >> i would love to hear the names, then it's concrete stuff and you can debate about it. >> reporter: the core group of alleged cheaters is composed of 16 men, including grand slam champions. gamblers have reportedly made big money by placing suspicious bets at tournaments, including wimbledon and the french open. >> the authorities absolutely reject any suggestion that evidence of match fixing has been suppress eed for any reaso. >> reporter: the so-called tennis integrity units, say they
7:15 am
have taken disciplinary action in 18 cases, including banning five players and one official for life. others have admitted to being approached to throw matches. even the world number one, just starting out. >> i was approached, me personally, through people that were working with me at that time. and of course we threw it away right away. it didn't even get to me. >> reporter: he says the offer was $200,000 to tank a first round match in russia in 2007. small change to him now. there are punishments for betting-related corruption, including a quarter of a million dollar fine and a lifetime ban. but as the old saying goes, show me the money. first you have to find it. charlie? >> mark, thanks. the music world has lost an iconic guitarist, eagles co--founder glenn frey died on monday after a long illness.

8:03 am
this morning he tweeted that cruz is, quote, a nervous wreck over poll thubs and he attacked cruz's citizenship and criticized cruz's state ads. in new hampshire last night, he disputed trump's conservative credentials for the first time in front of voters. >> he can launch any kind of attack ads he likes, i do think policy issues are fair game. donald trump says he thinks imminent domain is fantastic. he's talked a lot about illegalal immigration and amnesty. we were on the verge of losesing this fight and 12 million people here illegally being granted amnesty. donald was nowhere to be found. >> cruz will make six stops in new hampshire today on day three of a five-day visit. 500,000 new barrels offer rainian oil are expected to worsen the glut that has sent oil prices into a tail spin.

the cost of crud this morning is under $30 a barrel, it's lowest level since 2003. weak demand for oil and china's slowing economy sent shockwaves through the market. jpmorgan chase jamie dimon is here to talk got the oil prices seem to be volatile and scared. china's announced it's lowest growth in gdp, does this concern you in terms of where the global economy is going? >> yes, a little bit, but maybe not as much as most other people. the way i look at it, china is confusing people, it's getting slower, they kind of mismanaged
8:05 am
a little bit the yuan and the stock market. i think there's uncertainty around the presidential election, i just think all of those three create a lot of turbulence, but i'm kind of hopeful when the markets reprice, that the strength of the economy, which is still there, we're adding jobs in the eeconomy. >> i think china will grow 5% or 6%, they're now a $10 trillion economy. >> how resilient do you think the u.s. economy is? >> very. in the united states, we export only 12% or 13% of our gdp. 1% is china. 120 million people have jobs in the private sector. we see wages going up, we have added 12 million jobs in the
8:06 am
last five or six years, and we have a thing where we analyze detailing how people spend money. the u.s. economy could plow right through this, it may slow it down a little bit, but as long as the u.s. economy is growing, that's probably the most important thing in the world right now. >> bashing bankers seems to be in vogue on both parties. do you think that banks are easy targets or two you think it's unfair? >> i think we're targets and we have gotten used to it in the last several years. we help schools and -- i understand the political situation, but even the politicians should want jpmorgan do a good job of lending, helping our clients, allocating capital and obviously being safe and sound.
8:07 am
we were an absolute rock of gibraltar in the last storm. >> clearly the storm had a huge impact and clearly you have paid billions of dollars in bonds, what do you regret? >> probably buying wamu. probably a bad thing in hindsight. in business, you may do some things right, some things wrong. we have now paid a terrible price. with we have got on great people from it. we got great people out of bear stearns, but we have paid out $20 billon at this point. >> could that happen again? >> i don't think we would ever prove an acquisition like that again. >> who do you think is stronger, hillary clinton or bernie sanders. >> i think there should be proper, strong regulations, and at one point we'll ned to get into detail what that is. at one point, we were a very
8:08 am
strong company, cththe storm. let's talk about the right way to do things through good regulations. i think the regulators should take credit, the system is much stronger, twice as much cappal tall, god knows how much liquidity. the american bank system is very strong. >> did you suppod stability in different things, i supported 70% or 8 0%. to the same things i was against, barney frank was against. no one's going to agree on everything in a bill like that. i don't think congress is going to agree on everything. >> you talk about banks as being a human pin yacht a that. >> i'm very proud of the job we do in. >> so what do you think is the biggest misconception about wall street? >> we have private equity,
8:09 am
venture capital. banks have a role in that, but we're in the exclusively wall street. a healthy financial system includes all of those things. so i think it's a black box to some people. but at the end of the day, we move money for people, we invest in capital for companies large and small. >> i want to talk about you being a good corporate citizen. can we do that for a second? >> of course. >> i too have been to a couple of jpmorgan conferences and i have seen the work you do. you want to reroucruit students a different way. not that there's anything wrong with a four-year college, but you want to change that. >> this grant is to get jobs created for kids who are graduated high school, community schools, so when they leave,
8:10 am
they actually have a well paying job. so when you guys showed this aviation school in long island city, 2,000 kids go there. they get in, when they get out, $55,000 average job because they're trained in electrical equipment, they're trained in airframes, they're trained in engine control and stuff like that. so this grant hopefully will create innovation at the local level, community schools or high schools and businesses work together, and say if you do this, we're going to hire these kids. and businesses should be involved in that training so they get trained on what they want. and if it works there will be rep indicati rep indication. >> community cools have a tab louse role to play in high schools, in high school, if you know coding, you're much more likely to get a job. that's a pathway, you can stay in that job, but if you asire to going to college, you should be able to do that too. >> what i like is that it a pays
