Impact of the Financial Crisis on Your Local Government, US-India Nuclear Pact, and Trends in the Wireless Communications Industry
October 9, 2008
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
We start with a timely discussion on how the faltering economy impacts your state and local government's future budgetary choices and policy decisions. Marek Gootman, who represents many of the nation's largest cities, and Katie Whelan, a former senior advisor to California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, are our guests. Then, President Bush just signed an agreement that allows the United States to sell civilian nuclear energy technology to India. Ted Jones from the U.S.-India Business Council and attorneys Anurag Varma and Robert Kapla talk about what this bill means for both nations. In a world of Blackberries and Iphones, what are the biggest business, legal and regulatory issues facing the booming wireless industry today? Attorney Jennifer Richter will answer the call on those key questions. Our final segment takes listener calls and emails to review the state of the Presidential race and the fight for power in Congressional races nationwide.
