Join us on this week's Capital Thinking with guest host Mike Dino, who will be joined first by Nick Allard and Stephen Diaz Gavin, a Democrat and a Republican, respectively. Nick and Stephen will provide their reactions to Tuesday night's State of the Union address and discuss the GOP race, as well as whether President Obama is well-positioned for reelection. Next, Vince Frillici will join us to discuss the kind of power the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau will have with a new director now installed. Then, we will talk to Dan Waltz about how the Iran Sanctions Act may impact certain companies and the reactions of our allies and trading partners to the expansion of U.S. sanctions. Finally, Norma Krayem will close the show with her outlook on cybersecurity, including concerns of a potential increase in various forms of "hacktivism" against government, corporate and personal data.
