Negotiations over the debt ceiling continue this week, and we're taking a look at the economic impact of the trillion dollar talks. What do the latest figures for unemployment, at 9.2 percent, suggest about corporate earnings, which will be out this week?

Charlie Herman, business and economics editor for WNYC and The Takeaway and Charles Sennott, executive editor and co-founder of the international news website the Global Post, also joins us. 

Sennott just returned from Saudi Arabia and Egypt, and has updates on the 'Arab Spring,' and the future of democracy there.
