What Business Leaders Want to Hear in the Next Presidential Debate

Email a Friend

The first presidential debate between President Barack Obama and GOP challenger Mitt Romney focused on jobs and the economy but left some pundits asking for more specifics.

This week on WNYC's Money Talking, contributors Joe Nocera of the New York Times and Rana Foroohar of Time weigh in on what business leaders think was left out or glazed over in Wednesday night's debate and what they hope will be brought up next time.

The president and the former governor of Massachusetts will meet for their second head-to-head match-up on October 16 at Hofstra University on Long Island. The third and last presidential debate comes less than a week later.

Nocera and Foroohar also discuss the upcoming debate between Vice President Joe Biden and Rep. Paul Ryan, the lawmaker behind proposals to shrink the federal budget and reform Medicare.
