This Week's Agenda: UN General Assembly, Home Sales, and Federal Reserve Meets

Monday, September 20, 2010

The United Nations General Assembly kicks off this week, starting with a summit on the Millenium Development Goals, which aim to cut world poverty in half by 2015. As world leaders converge on New York for this event, they will also join leaders of the corporate and non-profit world for the 6th annual Clinton Global Initiative.

Charlie Herman, The Takeaway's economics editor; and Dayo Olopade, from The Daily Beast, look at what's ahead for both global meetings.  They'll also see how new and existing home sales numbers for August should look like; what Ben Bernanke and the Federal Reserve will decide as to whether or not the economy needs more stimulus; and if Israel will extend the freeze on settlement building in the West Bank.
