The Truth about the Flat World, Part Two  (aired 6/30/2005)
We’re just a few years into the twenty-first century, and it looks like globalization is here to stay. Rapid advances in telecommunications and falling trade barriers have linked national economies like never before, and the free flow of goods, capital, and information are even helping to shift authoritarian regimes toward openness. But globalization has also exposed Americans to fierce competition from former sleeping giants like China and India, and perhaps even brought terrorism to our front steps. What is the future of globalization? Can it be a force for peace? And does America have what it takes to compete?

The Competition Solution, Part Two  (aired 4/7/2005)
America’s economy has seen strong growth since the end of World War II, but there have been painful bumps in the road. Economists have struggled for years to figure out what to do to help. We hear about about tax policy, trade policy, exchange rates, and the role of the Federal Reserve, but today’s guest says that we have witnessed a more important factor: Competition. Is competition the answer?

Taxes, Part Two  (aired 7/10/2003)
Arguing about taxes is as old as the hills. And in today’s struggling economy, taxes are the root issue of American politics. President George W. Bush has made cutting taxes the core of his domestic agenda since his first day on the job. His critics, mostly Democrats, don’t like tax cuts, at least not Bush’s version. A battle royal has ensued. Will tax cuts help the economy? Who should get them and how much? Can anyone make sense of it all?
