"Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN
This week on GPS: Would North Korea attack the U.S. or its allies? Fareed convenes an all-star panel of global thinkers including New York Times columnist Tom Friedman, The Nation editor Katrina vanden Heuvel, Council on Foreign Relations President Richard Haass and Wall Street Journal columnist Bret Stephens to discuss the Koreas, the Middle East, gun control and President Obama.
Then, some good news for America: Morgan Stanley's Ruchir Sharma explains why emerging markets are slowing down – and the U.S. is on the up.
“We still dominate because the U.S. is the largest economy in the world. But even as a share of the economy, the amount that the U.S. spends on R&D is very high,” Sharma says. “I think only a couple of other countries in the world, such as South Korea and Israel maybe, spend a bit more of the share of GDP.”
“But what the U.S. spends is a lot. So again, a lot of sort of negatives about the infrastructure out here, but we sort of tend to overlook the fact that the U.S. is still spending on a lot of right things.”
