This week, President Obama signed the $410 billion omnibus bill, but called for an “an end of the old way of doing business.” Meanwhile, President Obama and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner presented a united front when they called for European leaders to follow the U.S.’s lead and invest more money into their struggling economies. That plan was met with skepticism and fear of record high deficits.
Will the president be able to convince the international community to follow his lead? We’ll find out when we’re joined by Austan Goolsbee, a key member of the President’s Council of Economic Advisers — only on "FOX News Sunday."
Then, the question of a second stimulus package is already surfacing. The idea has Washington buzzing, as many debate whether the first stimulus can work. We sit down for a roundtable discussion on the economic crisis with three preeminent voices from the Senate, the House and the world of finance: Republican Sen. Bob Corker, Democratic Rep. Barney Frank and chief economist of Moody’s Economy.com, Mark Zandi. We’ll get their thoughts on the president’s proposed budget, the effect and implementation of the economic stimulus and discuss the inevitability, or need, for a second stimulus package.
Plus, one of the world’s most powerful women shows us what she’s doing to insure that your money is safe: FDIC Chairman Sheila Bair.
And, with Bernard Madoff behind bars, did the poster boy for fraud teach us a lesson about how we invest our money? We'll discuss with our Sunday panel: Brit Hume, FOX News senior political analyst; Mara Liasson of National Public Radio; Bill Kristol of the Weekly Standard and Juan Williams of National Public Radio.
So check your local listings and we’ll see you on the next "FOX News Sunday."
