Iraq Economy

Where will the $75 billion President Bush wants for the war come from? What is it going to be spent on? Will he ask for more in the near future? Tony Cox discusses these and other economic issues surrounding the war in Iraq with Robert Reich, former U.S. Secretary of Labor and currently a professor of social and economic policy at Brandeis University, and Ransford Palmer, chair of the economics department at Howard University.
