This Week's Agenda: State of the Union, Ben Bernanke, Haiti

Monday, January 25, 2010

We give you all you need to know about the news we expect to come in the next seven days. This week, we take a look at what to expect in President Obama's first State of the Union address. We'll also look ahead at how the president  is planning to stop what appears to be a tailspin for the Democrats; Ben Bernanke's confirmation as Fed chairman; the relief effort in Haiti; and the start of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

All that and two international conferences in London on Yemen and Afghanistan. With Marcus Mabry, international business editor for The New York Times and Jonathan Marcus, diplomatic correspondent for the BBC.

Guests:

Marcus Mabry and Jonathan Marcus

Produced by:

The Takeaway reports what the stock market will open at, but this is what the market closed at the previous day, not what it will open at. Your reporting on stock market openings is not true information. You need to correct it by saying, "the market closed at . . . last Friday," or something similar.
