"Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN
On GPS this Sunday: Is the U.S. economy rebounding? Will politics get in the way? Fareed sits down for an exclusive interview with U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew.
"I'm pretty optimistic about the American economy," Lew says. "I look at an economy that's proven its resilience. This year, it's outperformed expectations already."
Then, the struggle for Egypt, with an expert GPS panel including Dalia Mogahed, the former executive director of the Gallup Center for Muslim Studies, Steven Cook, a senior fellow for Middle East studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, and Tarek Masoud, a Middle East specialist who teaches public policy at Harvard University.
And, why good movies don't get made anymore: learning about the era of "sequel-itis".
I was astounded that Jack Lew lied about the targeting of organizations by the IRS. We all know it is a fact. I understand the way things are. Our memory starts to fade a little bit and people like Jack know that. They think that they can reinvent the truth once the memory has started to fade. That's a pretty bad thing to expect from our government officials but it happens all the time. Please just identify what has gone wrong, correct the issues, and move forward in a way that we can all support!
Nice interview with our esteemed treasury secretary. Would have been better if you had followed up on the bald-faced lies. The IRS targeted both sides? Really? Could you have asked for a single example of a left-leaning group that was targeted?
Mr. Lew thought that the economy would heal if the government didn't harm the economy with self inflicted wounds. Yet he did not address the biggest self inflicted wound ever conceived by any administration-Obamacare. The negative impact of this legislation has yet to be felt As for the squabble over the debt ceiling, this was moronic. However , Mt Obamas imperial posture and refusal to negotiate also was a factor. Mr Lew may think it is well settled that the IRS probes were not politically motivated. Unfortunately,given the nature of the Chicago politicians iWeb have in office, the taking of the Fifth by a main player at the IRS, and the uneven application of that power toward the Teaparty people, he may be feeling good about the resolution of the IRS issue. But many Americans do not.
What happened to the 1pm airing? Just plain CNN news though the online FIOS guide says Fareed Zakaria.
The United States embodies a crisis. . . of its own making. Sovereign default would be kinder than debasement of all currencies.
We are not optimistic about the American economy, unfortunately we look at an economy that's proven its resilience in losing in global business. Decades of wrong partnerships, especially with South Korea and China, have brought unimaginable failure for US companies. BREAK IT, NOW!! United States America needs new partnerships to recover US economy to respectable and acceptable levels. The most beneficial partner in this can be France, Italy and Great Britain.
Amen @ George! The US needs to rethink the way we go about "business as usual" that has been accepted procedures in the past! Those no longer work. And stop all foreign aid, particularly the military aid to foreign countries!
