Right after the election, policymakers are worried about what they call a “fiscal cliff” – the moment when a set of spending cuts automatically take place, as well as the end of certain tax cuts – unless a deal on the deficit is reached. CEOs are even more worried. In fact, some say they’ve been paralyzed by Congress’s inaction. Fareed talks with Goldman Sachs’ Lloyd Blankfein, on what he calls a “ticking time bomb.”
What do CEOs think of the economic year gone by? One of them calls it “a year of doing nothing.” Watch this excerpt from Andrew Liveris of Dow Chemical.
