Watch "Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN
On GPS this Sunday: First, Fareed offers his take on inequality in the United States, and why French economist Thomas Piketty's latest work is causing such a stir. For more on his book Capital in the Twenty-First Century, read The Guardian's explainer here.
Next, The United States seems sure that its sanctions against Russia will work. Few outsiders agree. So, what does the U.S. Treasury know that we don't? Fareed will speak with the man charged with making Putin pay a price – the Treasury Department’s David Cohen.
Plus, GPS will look at dangerous developments in two of the most populous countries of the Middle East – Egypt and Iraq. Fareed will ask Egypt's foreign minister about the more than 1,200 Muslim Brotherhood supporters sentenced to death in his nation...and about the American government money and arms that may begin to flow again into Egypt.
Also, Iraq held an election this week, but the New Yorker's Dexter Filkins says it's already clear who won – Iran.
And, why America's middle class – once the envy of the world – is no longer number one.
