This article is more than 11 years old.

The economy has been a big buzzword at the Democratic National Convention this week. In fact, it dominated yesterday's speeches, which drew on the day's official theme, "Renewing America's Promise."

WBUR's Bob Oakes talked about what it would take to do just that with Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank, who chairs the Financial Services Committee. He started by giving Bob a snapshot of the US economy right now.

This program aired on August 27, 2008. The audio for this program is not available.
