On GPS Sunday: Discussing China's regional tensions. And Summers on U.S. economy

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

On GPS this Sunday: Asia's war of words – Why China has been engaging some heated rhetoric with so many of its neighbors, and whether things could get more serious. Fareed speaks with China experts Elizabeth Economy and The New Yorker's Evan Osnos.

Then, a 1-on-1 interview with former U.S. Treasury Secretary Larry Summers to discuss new Federal Reserve Board Chair Janet Yellen and the state of the U.S. economy.

“I have college-aged children. And occasionally, we have a difference of opinion about how much money they've spent,” Summer says. “And in our family, we discuss whether they're going to pay or whether I'm going to pay. But we don't discuss whether or not Visa should get stiffed, because we know that would be terrible for our family's credit rating and that's just not what we would do.”

And later, is the U.S. safe from cyber crime? Peter Singer of the Brookings Institution explains how the online world is very much like the real one.

    Fareed's "What in the World" segment highlighted China's intended steps on air quality, and raised the question of India and whether they can learn. India is in the closing sessions of its air quality road-mapping process for 2025 in the vehicle sector. Sadly, they are contemplating allowing dirty fuels through 2022 and implementing emissions technologies 10-15 yrs behind Europe. The Indian clean fuel and emissions technologies provide $9 in benefits to every $1 spent. India air will continue to worsen unless more practical regulations are implemented.

  6. No imports from Asia

    Imports from China have negative effects on US economy (lost jobs, diminished US influence, ...), and other unwanted side-effects, such as: cyber and non-cyber crime. Now, for our interests, the best way to go: N.A.T.O. countries alliance.
