"Fareed Zakaria GPS" this Sunday at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET.
On GPS this week: fixing America’s finances. Fareed speaks with two former U.S. treasury secretaries who represent both sides of the political aisle: Robert Rubin and Paul O’Neill.
Earlier this week, writing in the New York Times, Rubin tackled the arguments surrounding the so-called fiscal cliff, the looming combination of automatic spending cuts and tax increases that kick in at the start of next year unless Republicans and Democrats in Washington can agree a deal. Can the two parties alter what Rubin describes as America’s “unsustainable and dangerous fiscal trajectory?” Hear Rubin’s take on GPS this week.
Also, billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates talks about what’s wrong with American education, and how he plans to help fix it.
