China devalues its currency and will the Iran deal make it through Congress?

IrandealThe Chinese government recently devalued its currency. What does that mean for the Chinese economy and the global economy? In the second half, we will take a look at President Obama’s unprecedented nuclear enrichment deal with Iran. It has ruffled a lot of feathers on Capitol Hill and inside Israel but not everyone is resisting the move. We’ll take a look at how the deal is being received in Washington, Iran, and Israel.

 

Guests: 

Dean Baker, Co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research
Reza Marashi, Research director at the National Iranian American Council (NIAC)
Rabbi Michael Lerner, Editor of Tikkun Magazine
