From G7 to G20, learn about the organization of leaders of 20 of the world’s biggest economies — a lesson to prepare you for the summit currently taking place in South Korea. Also, how is the “currency war” affecting the mood of the meeting? And will President Obama have his way: a trade pact signed in weeks and not months?
Learn about a plan from President Obama’s deficit-reduction commission, which officials hope will save as much as $4 trillion over the next decade. Also, did foreclosures actually decrease in October or has faulty paperwork distorted the numbers?
In India, is there a correlation between the rise of the middle class and an increase in diabetes?
Back in the U.S., host Jeremy Hobson talks with David Barger, CEO of JetBlue — part of our “Welcome to New York Week.” Not sure what you want for the holiday season? How about a case of free shipping from most of the major e-tailers? And finally, there is still time to make off with a shampoo bottle that belonged to Bernie Madoff. Here are the songs we played:

- Yellow Submarine — The BeatlesBuy
