Candidates on the Economy

This week, Senators McCain, Obama and Clinton mapped out their plans to shore up the faltering economy — what does each say about foreclosures and the Bear Stearns bailout? We speak with David Leonhardt of the New York Times. We also speak with Nariman Behravesh, Chief Economist for Global Insight.


We preview tomorrow's presidential elections in Zimbabwe with Xan Smiley, Middle East and Africa Editor for The Economist Magazine.

Lights Out

The lights will be turned off tomorrow night between 8-9 p.m. in more than 35 US cities including the flagship cities of Phoenix, Atlanta, Chicago and San Francisco. It's all part of "Earth Hour," a campaign organized by the conservation group, The World Wildlife Fund.

Iraq Films

Dramatic films about the war in Iraq have fared poorly at the box office. Is it that audiences don't want to see Iraq at at the movies, or is it the quality of the films themselves? We talk to Boston Globe film critic Ty Burr.

This program aired on March 28, 2008.
