This week on the show, Fareed sits down with three former Treasury Secretaries to discuss the state of the world economy. 

First, he hosts Henry Paulson and Timothy Geithner to talk about the US debt downgrade and the chances of a recession in the near future. They also discuss the Biden administration's China policy and whether there's a path to a stable relationship with Beijing. 

Then, President Clinton’s Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin talks to Fareed about decision-making – and how a yellow legal pad can help us all weigh the risks and rewards. 

Plus, a special interview with iconic artist David Byrne who talks with Fareed about his latest Broadway musical. “Here Lies Love” tells the tale former First Lady of the Philippines Imelda Marcos … and her love of disco.
