On GPS Sunday: Can the U.S. help Egypt? And, is America over-regulated?

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

On GPS Sunday: What does the future hold for Egypt, and what can Washington do to help? The Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens debates the Daily Beast’s Peter Beinart.

Then, is America over-regulated? Fareed puts that to President Barack Obama’s former “regulation czar” Cass Sunstein.

In our What in the World segment, some good news for America: Commonsense is kicking in on prison reform.

And, the Middle East's other revolution: how the region is becoming a hot-bed of innovation and tech startups. Fareed speaks with entrepreneur and venture capitalist Chris Schroeder, author of the new new book Start Uprising: The Entrepreneurial Revolution Remaking the Middle East.

Also, do we have too much choice? Sheena Iyengar, author of The Art of Choosing, and Boston College law professor Kent Greenfield, author of The Myth of Choice, discuss the issue. (For more on the issue, visit Columbia Business School's GLeaM).

    No, the U.S. can no longer help Egypt, but Germany can. Let the Germans take a crack at it for a change! I guess people are just too stupid to go along with this idea and that's why things are such a mess!!! Stupidity is the one huge threat to this country and the sooner the people realize it, the better!

      Good post, George. Too bad that everyone else here is just too ignorant to come up with your idea above. You seem to be the only one here who can think!

    Jeez Fareed, what a cupcake interview with Cass Sunstein. You were not even challenging anything he said.

    Great interview with Sheena Iyengar on the art of choosing. I agree that too many choices cause confusion and then consumers buy fewer products. I personally limit to myself with 3/4 choices to be easy and happy.

    Two Disturbing Issues
    One, The House, Senate, and Executive branch Exempting themselves from Nationalized Healthcare
    Two, The Lack of Media Coverage of the Significance of the Vote
