With a new ABC News/Washington Post Poll showing that nearly two-thirds of Americans believe the country is on the wrong track and that nearly half of Americans strongly disapprove of President Obama's performance on the economy and deficit, ABC News' "This Week With Christiane Amanpour" convenes a panel to tackle the state of the economy.
Former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich, author of "Aftershock: The Next Economy and America's Future;" Chairman/CEO of MF Global Inc. Jon Corzine, who is also the former governor of New Jersey and former Chairman/CEO of Goldman Sachs; ranking member of the Senate Banking Committee Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.); and ABC News senior political correspondent Jonathan Karl join anchor Christiane Amanpour to discuss the best way forward for the economy.
Then, with senior members of Newt Gingrich's campaign staff dramatically walking off the job as Gingrich tried to relaunch his campaign, the "This Week" political roundtable questions whether the former speaker's run for the presidency can survive. Democratic strategist Donna Brazile; Peggy Noonan of The Wall Street Journal; ABC News senior White House Correspondent Jake Tapper; and ABC News' George Will sit down with Amanpour to talk about it.
Plus, as Anthony Weiner's Twitter saga continues and congressional representatives weigh in on whether he should resign, "This Week" takes a look at women and power, with ABC News' Claire Shipman, co-author of "Womenomics," former Assistant Pentagon Press Secretary Torie Clarke, and Cecilia Attias, former wife of French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
It is a packed hour of important debates on "This Week." Don't miss it.
