Financial Turmoil's Effect On Global Markets, National Politics
Week In Review Panel It’s been a tough week to be Barack Obama. Despite his best efforts to reassure investors about the health of the US economy, the president’s words failed to stabilize dramatic ups and downs in the global markets this week. And on the heels of scathing critique in the New York Times – he’s been dodging not just the usual slings and arrows of conservatives – but of his liberal base too. Ahead of tomorrow’s Iowa straw poll, Republican presidential hopefuls duked it out last night in Ames. But perhaps the most talked about sound bite came from former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney hours before the debate in an informal stump speech at the Iowa State Fair. Then, rising acrimony in the Verizon strike; Whitey Bulger’s girlfriend is indicted; and an American as top cop of Scotland Yard? Plus – thumbs up, thumbs down on charging $16.95 a pound for “fresh water crayfish” and calling it lobster? We’re joined by Denterlein’s Terence Burke and Boston Globe columnists Scot Lehigh and Adrian Walker.
