Episode Summary

The Economics of the Presidency
First Up Carlson engages with New York Times columnist and Princeton Univeristy economics professor Paul Krugman, whose most recent collection of his work is entitled The Great Unraveling. Krugman has been particularly pointed in his criticisms of the Bush administration's policies - economic and otherwise.

In this week's Plus 2 segment, Carlson is joined by Zanny Minton Beddoes of The Economist and Dan Flynn in a discussion of the state of the nation's economic fortunes and the latest developments in the presidential campaign.

Author Franklin Foer has found a unique measure of globalization and its impacts: soccer. Carlson and the writer explore these views, expressed in the new work, How Soccer Explains the World, on the Back Page.moreless
