On GPS this Sunday: The show opens with a special live segment to discuss the shooting that took place this week in Ottawa. What do we know about the attack? How serious is the threat of lone extremists? And how should Canada and others respond? Fareed offers his take before holding a panel discussion.
Next, President Barack Obama has come in for criticism for his administration’s handling of the economy, Ebola and national security. But how deserving is he of such criticism? And how will his administration be remembered? Fareed convenes a panel including Walter Isaacson, president and CEO of the Aspen Institute and the author of The Innovators: How A Group of Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution, CNN Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger, Sean Wilentz, who has written about presidents from Jefferson to Lincoln to Reagan, and Amity Shlaes, a historian and writer with four New York Times best-sellers.
Also, 50 years ago, a groundbreaking psychological experiment was conducted on preschoolers – involving marshmallows. What did the children do? What would you do? Walter Mischel, the man behind the experiment, explains what it says about self-control.
