After the beating Democrats took in last week's mid-term elections, all eyes, including those of our managing producer, Noel King, will be looking at what the GOP's initial moves will be this week. She'll also look at President Obama's continued trip through Asia, along with Charlie Herman, business and economics editor for The Takeaway and WNYC Radio.

President Obama will finish his trip in India, make an address to the Indian Parliament, and then head next for Indonesia, followed by the G20 summit in South Korea.  He will likely confront criticism from the international community on U.S. economic policies, including the Fed's recent decision to make large purchases of Treasury securities.
