The powers at be have proclaimed today, the day before the financial-services firm Lehman Brothers declared bankruptcy a year ago, the unhappy anniversary of our country’s near-financial demise. President Obama marked the occasional with a speech this morning, assessing the past year and looking forward to regulation that should prevent history from repeating.

Guests:

Chris Thornberg, Principal, Beacon Economics; Economic forecaster, former Senior Economist with the UCLA Anderson Forecast

Anne Vorce, director of the Fiscal Roadmap Project for the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget; policy director, Fiscal Policy Program at the New American Foundation
