I wish CNN would provide a video podcast for this show.
Reviewer ADVISOR

I wish CNN would provide a video podcast for this show.

I'm currently living overseas where CNN is not aired on television and Internet is my only source.

At the same time, in my opinion, this show's audience are pretty internationalized since it proportionally focuses on world affairs rather than keep talking America politics like many other Sunday talk shows. And most overseas audience can't watch CNN in where they are.

i wish cnn wasn't so leftist

Niall Ferguson versus Economists
Reviewer mlneale
 June 17, 2012
Why would you and others treat Niall Ferguson as an economist? He is an historian. He has studied economic history but his aggressive display of OPINIONS do not compete with the top economists. I have seen him interviewed many times (not recently thank heavens, until today) and can't believe his stupid opinions. I can see why a lot of people might be impressed because he supports austerity and people don't understand that the deficit can't be heavily worked on before the economy improves. They are brain-washed to think the deficit has to be dealt with first or our country will be destroyed.

You are Very smart so why do you have Ferguson on your program for his 'opinions'?

What scares America's 4 Fed chiefs and the Global impact of Panama Papers

Author: Fareed Zakaria GPS
Sun, Apr 10, 2016


America's four living Federal Reserve chairs say the U.S. is not in a bubble, but that doesn't mean everything is fine. Current Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen and former chairs Ben Bernanke, Alan Greenspan and Paul Volcker all agree that a bubble isn't a concern. They were interviewed together for the first time ever on Thursday by CNN's Fareed Zakaria, with Greenspan on a live feed. "This is an economy on a solid course, not a bubble economy," said Yellen said at the event at International House in New York. Bernanke backed her up. "Just because we've been in 7 years of recovery doesn't mean we're due for another recession at all," Bernanke said. He went as far as to say he doesn't think there's any greater risk of a recession this year than there normally is. But the four Fed chairs also agreed on this: They worry a lot. It comes with the job of being at the helm of the world's number one economy. Right now, Yellen's top concern is the health of the rest of the world. She said the U.S. is "suffering from a drag from the global economy." The Fed didn't raise interest rates in March and almost certainly won't do it at its next meeting in April because of the weakness abroad. Is the power of running the Federal Reserve an ego boost? The former Fed chairs were even more blunt about their concerns. For Bernanke, it's Congress, especially if another recession were to hit. "When central bank is out of ammunition or ammunition is low, fiscal policy has a role to play," he said, taking a swipe at Congress for not doing enough stimulus to boost growth. Greenspan thinks the biggest issue is that productivity isn't growing in America -- or much of the developed world. That's a fancy way of saying the same workers aren't making a whole lot more than they used to. "I think the major problem that exists is essentially the issue that productivity growth across the spectrum of all economies has been under 1% a year for the last five years," said Greenspan. The solution in Greenspan's mind isn't for government to spend a lot more, it's for companies to invest more. Many big businesses have been holding on to large cash reserves. Volcker, who served as Fed chair from 1979 to 1987, considers himself the seasoned veteran. He says economies go up and down and that's natural. While Volcker doesn't believe there's a bubble, he did admit he thinks there are "aspects of the financial world that are overextended." He referred to parts of the financial system that don't contribute to productivity. He didn't say explicitly what those are, but he seemed to be hinting at certain hedge fund activities.

Long Road to Hell: America in Iraq

Author: Fareed Zakaria GPS
Sun, Dec 27, 2015


President George W. Bush had a dream that Iraq would become a beacon of hope in the Middle East. Now, with the region wracked by chaos, civil war, and violence, some U.S. presidential candidates are pledging to order American "boots on the ground" again in Iraq this time to fight ISIS. The crucial question is: do we understand the Iraq we would be going back to? CNN's Fareed Zakaria will take a timely look at the reality of what is left of Iraq in Long Road to Hell: America in Iraq. Zakaria asks tough questions of many of the key architects of America's military intervention in Iraq over the last dozen years: Who is responsible for the unraveling of Iraq? Do those who want to send American troops to Iraq again understand the mistakes of the past? And, is Iraq even a country anymore? Zakaria was himself an early supporter of the 2003 military intervention in Iraq. Explaining how his views evolved over time, Zakaria points out the consequences of the major strategic choices. He argues there were too few troops sent to maintain post-war order once the American-led coalition had conquered Saddam's army. And, greater inclusion of the sectarian groups in Iraq could have meant more regional support for the nation-building efforts that followed the collapse of the Baathist regime. In Long Road to Hell, Zakaria examines these vital pivot points and mistakes some previously unknown until now. Offering answers and exploring the challenges are: Tony Blair, U.K. Prime Minister (1997-2007), Quartet Representative for the Middle East (2007-2015); Antony Blinken, U.S. Deputy Secretary of State (2014-present); Paul Bremer, Presidential Envoy to Iraq (2003-2004); Richard Clarke, Special Advisor to the President for Cyberspace (2001-2003); National Coordinator for Security and Counterterrorism Czar (1998-2003); Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Intelligence (Ronald Reagan Administration); Douglas Feith, Undersecretary of Defense for Policy (2001-2005); Peter Galbraith, former U.S. diplomat; Richard Haass, PhD, president, Council on Foreign Relations (2003 present); former lead U.S. official on Afghanistan and Northern Ireland (2001-2003); and Gen. David Petraeus (ret.), Commander, Multi-National Force in Iraq (2007 2008); Commander, International Security Assistance Force and Commander, U.S. Forces in Afghanistan (2010-2011); Commander, U.S. Central Command (2008-2010).

Author: Fareed Zakaria GPS
Sun, Sep 27, 2015


On GPS Sunday, Fareed sits down with former President Bill Clinton to talk the 2016 presidential race - from Mrs. Clinton to Trump - and global strife - from Syria to Ukraine - and how to make the world a better place. And, Fareed gives his outsider's take on the most important parts of Pope Francis' message. Today on GPS Exclusive interview with 42nd President of the United States, Bill Clinton 1. Why is Hillary Having Such a Problem? 2. The Nuclear Deal with Iran 3. Clinton Finds His Second Calling Fareed's Take: An outsider's perspective on Pope Francis I've always admired the Church's central message - be nice to the poor. How did "Christian Values" come to be represented by abortion conversations? Looking for a mention of "abortion" in the Bible. Did Jesus say women can't be priests? What the Bible can really teach us about life today A message to those who have a problem with Pope Francis He is reminding us that we have a moral obligation to the poor and disadvantaged. If you have a problem with that, you have a problem with Jesus Christ. Clinton On Clinton: The Presidential Race Interview with 42nd President of the United States, Bill Clinton Clinton Global Initiative kicks of this week in New York City. "I think you know why" Hillary is having a tougher time than expected. "The other party doesn't want to run against her" Clinton: History is repeating itself with "I actually am amazed that [Hillary's] borne up under it as well as she has" Mrs. Clinton has defenders but "they don' seem to show up on TV very much". Bill Clinton: Politics "is a contact sport". Bill Clinton: "They thought the only way they could make it a race was a full-scale frontal assault on" Mrs. Clinton. "This email thing became the biggest story in the world". Clinton on Clinton: The Benghazi Hearings Clinton On Trump: Why is he popular? "He's a master brander." "He's got a lot of pizzazz and zip." "There doesn't seem to be much interest" on their side in policy. Could Trump be the nominee? "I think so." The country needs somebody that can help families and kids, and impact all of this anonymous money in politics. "I'm not the best pundit anymore." Clinton On Israel, The U.S. and Iran "Mr. Netanyahue's Trip to Congress was rather unprecedented" Clinton: The Iran nuclear deal is, "on balance, the right thing to do." Would you have believed in '79 that the Berlin Wall would fall in '89. Clinton On Russia and Ukraine "I was very disturbed [Putin} blithely tore up the agreement" Yeltsin and I singed on Ukraines' territorial integrity. I think it's a very good thing that Putin and Obama will meet next week. Clinton On Syria: What will happen with these refugees?

Author: Fareed Zakaria GPS
Sun, Aug 30, 2015


Fareed's Take: America's Racial Divide. Lessons on race from an unlikely source: Singapore. Ethnic quotas are mandated in neighborhoods. This is what is meant when people call the Singapore government a "nanny state". America remains segregated - public schools have become less diverse in the last two decades. Roundtable discussion: Obama's Report Card Rose: Obama "has done a pretty decent job on foreign policy" Abrams: On Iran nuclear deal, What are we getting on human rights fro the deal? Beinart: Polls show Obama is more popular around the world than George W. Bush. Obama is in a position like Nixon was after Vietnam. O'Sullivan: "Strategic restraint" in the MidEast is a euphemism for inaction Segment: What in the world? How to MAKE people make babies. How do you get people to have more babies? This is a burning question for many governments around the globe. "Do it for Denmark" addresses the stagnate and eventually shrinking national population. How to promote procreation? Cut costs of weddings, offered cars and encouraged nights for baby making. Americas population, according to Pew between 2010-2050 will grow by 27% Leadership Lessons: Retired U.S. General Stanley McChrystal teaches us how to lead Speaks with us about his new book, "Team of Teams: New Rules of Engagement for a Complex World". Fareed: When you looked at successful examples of leadership? McChrystal: "You win the trust of the people and then you unleash their initiative." These are battlefield lessons for the boardroom. McChrystal offers his checklist for being a good leader. Segment: Fareed interviews Dame Helen Mirren She's played everything from a Queen to a Mossad agent, but never a Bond Girl. Mirren: "I really hope that we're going to see a female president." Mirren: Clinton "is a lioness."
