This Week's Agenda: A Currency Change in China and Estonia; A Look at Our Economy; and A Visit From Medvedev

Monday, June 21, 2010

It's Monday, which means it's time to take a look at what's ahead this week in the agenda with the help of Marcus Mabry, associate national editor for The New York Times, and Charlie Herman, The Takeaway and WNYC's economics editor. 

 

We take a look at how China announcing it will be more flexible in its currency policy ahead of the G20 summit will affect our economy. We'll also look at how Estonia joining the Euro-zone will affect it and the EU's struggling economy; what upcoming home sales numbers and the first quarter GDP report will say about the state of our economy. Also, we talk about Russian President Dmitry Medvedev's visit to Washington.

Guests:

Charlie Herman and Marcus Mabry
