Secretary of State Rice on Kudlow & Company Tonight

This is my last day in Washington before heading back up to New York.

We’re going to interview Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice on tonight’ show. I plan on asking her about the ongoing challenges in Iraq as well as the danger of nuclear proliferation in Iran and North Korea.

Another topic I’d like to explore is how the global economy—in its march toward capitalism—has performed brilliantly since the horrible attacks on 9/11. Global stock markets have also performed exceptionally well.

So, is it possible that economic freedom is trumping totalitarian, jihadist, Islamic fundamentalism?

And is there a way to use economic connectivity in solving international political hotspot challenges in the darker corners of the world?
