Today's show covers the economic crisis, which Leo declares is not a financial crisis but instead an investment crisis. He is uncertain whether this stimulus package will result in projects that will last a hundred years and provide returns or simply be a fiasco. But at least the Country is on track to grappling with investment decisions with a discipline that is being forced on us by the realities of economics. We do some news and take your calls.
