President Obama meets at the White House today with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown to discuss the steadily declining world economy and possible actions to be taken at a summit in London next month.
They’ll talk about what more can be done to help world economies stop what is now a sustained and dramatic slide that is threatening to push some countries, especially in Eastern Europe, close to the brink of social upheaval. The regulation of global markets also will be on the agenda.
Also, check out Eli Lake’s fascinating story about a legal opinion issued by the Bush administration five days before leaving office that revoked a number of opinions issued from 2001 to 2003 and related to the president’s war powers.
