On GPS Sunday: 2013 in review, and Britain's chancellor of the exchequer

Watch "Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN

On GPS this Sunday: What were the most significant moments of 2013? Who were the year’s big winners and losers around the world? Fareed convenes a panel of leading analysts including Anne Marie Slaughter, president and CEO of the New America Foundation, Wall Street Journal columnist Bret Stephens, The Economist’s Zanny Minton Beddoes, and Ian Bremmer, founder and president of the Eurasia Group.

Then, the case for British austerity and Britain’s relations with China: a one-on-one interview with U.K. Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne.

“I start with this principle: that a country like Britain has got to earn its way in the world and attract investment in the world and it's going to succeed and increase the living standards of its population,” Osborne says.

“It's got to have a government that lives within its means, but it also has got to be an attractive place to do business. And I see Chinese investment as an enormous potential source of wealth creation for the United Kingdom. And I want to see that Chinese money helping create British jobs and British infrastructure.”

Also, Fareed speaks with President Obama's first director of National Intelligence, now retired, Naval Admiral Dennis Blair, about the NSA's surveillance program.

Later, a preview of the new GPS special “India at a Crossroads,” looking at how Bollywood's Tom Cruise is taking on some of the country's biggest social ills.

    Why does Britain need Chinese money?
    Cant' it create its own?
    Isn't it a sovereign country?

      After having been snubbed by China for two years, David Cameron could finally visit Beijing just a few weeks ago. He is ingratiating himself with the Chinese to get their investments in Britain.
      If George Osborne thinks Britain is recovering, it still takes a long time to be out of the woods.

    This interview was a disappointment in that Fareed did not question more closely Osborne's claims of success via austerity. As was the case with the interview of Alan Greenspan as well, Fareed allows these 'experts' to make claims which are self serving but not supported by the facts. In the future, please have on another economist whose expertise will allow for a more thorough and balanced presentation of the issue. Career is either too polite or too lacking in economic expertise to do this himself.

    Mr. Osborne made his case! The UK which had a deeper recession came out of it faster and now enjoys greater job growth by a big factor. Germany reinforces austerity as they always are more austere in finance and against their case a lesser recession and now stronger economic and job growth. The should be enough to bury the Krugman Summers theory but add this–compare the debt! The US debt cannot be repaid and there is no economist around that will say how it could be done and that is not true in the UK and Germany to reinforce it. This debt will overhang our economy forever and it will continue to dampen economic and job growth! Debt is what you failed to discuss! TC
