The U.S. may reach its debt ceiling next month. As oil hits $100 a barrel, the subject of the U.S.’s dependence on foreign oil rises again. In Libya, meanwhile, the U.S. sanctions highlight sovereign wealth funds. Commentator David Frum talked about Wisconsin and unions, and Kai spoke to David Roodman, senior fellow at the Center for Global Development about microfinance and the firing of Muhammad Yunus.
