The horrific terror attack in Moscow; The growing rift between the U.S. and Israel; Why Biden’s approval numbers are low when the economy is booming; Fareed on his new book, “Age of Revolutions: Progress and Backlash from 1600 to the Present”
This week on the show, Fareed interviews Daniel Byman, director of Georgetown University’s Center for Security Studies, to discuss the horrific terrorist attack near Moscow on Friday. What is the state of Islamic extremism today, and is Putin laying the groundwork to blame Ukraine?    Then, the rift between the U.S. and Israel is widening while Prime Minister Netanyahu stands firm on a planned ground invasion in Rafah. Fareed hosts a panel with New York Times columnist Bret Stephens and Daniel Kurtzer, a former U.S. Ambassador to both Israel and Egypt, to talk about the schism, and what might come next for Gaza.    After that, the new politics of identity. Fareed shares one of the arguments he makes in his new book, “Age of Revolutions: Progress and Backlash from 1600 to the Present”: that social and cultural issues, not economic interests, are driving political opinions today. This could explain why Biden’s approval numbers are low despite a booming economy.    Fareed is then joined by Walter Isaacson, renowned journalist and biographer, who asks Fareed about his new book.    Finally: What is the secret to happiness? Fareed examines what is making us happy, and what we can learn from countries like Finland, which has yet again topped the list of the world’s happiest countries.    GUESTS: Daniel Byman (@dbyman), Bret Stephens, Daniel Kurtzer (@DanKurtzer), Walter Isaacson Learn more about your ad choices.
