This Week's Agenda: Obama Out West, Government Shutdown Looms

Email a Friend

It's Monday morning, which means we're looking at the agenda for the week ahead. President Obama will make a west coast trip this week, hitting Seattle, the San Francisco Bay area, San Diego, Los Angeles and Denver, raising funds for his re-election campaign and advocating for his jobs bill. Back in Washington, D.C., Congress is in the midst of another stalemate over government funds. Meanwhile, some key economic indicators will be released this week, including home sales figures and consumer confidence reports.

We're speaking with Callie Crossley, host of "The Callie Crossley Show" on WGBH in Boston, and Charlie Herman, economics and business editor for The Takeaway and WNYC.
