"Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN
On GPS this week: Despite wars, economic crises, and freak weather events, we should still be positive about the progress the world is making, argues Bill Gates in a wide-ranging interview on global disease, education, technology and more.
“[I]nnovation has been underestimated today more than any time in history,” says Gates. “I mean, we had the Internet bubble, where it was actually briefly overestimated. That was kind of uncomfortable, I think. But it's strange to be in such a funk because people look at political roadblocks and some of them, the way these numbers measure things, they aren’t getting a sense of the progress in the rich world and in the developing world.”
Then, Fareed speaks with the only man to win an Oscar, a Grammy, an Emmy, and a Nobel Prize: Al Gore. The former U.S. vice president talks gun control, U.S. politics and climate change.
And in What in the World: Why a major African country found itself with only $217 in its government bank account.
