Journalists Peter Coy and Jon Hilsenrath examine the current static state of the U.S. economy and the role of the Federal Reserve "zone of inaction" in the area of monetary policy, and offer potential stimulus solutions as well. David Ignatius, a columnist for the Washington Post, shares the real-life research behind his eighth spy novel, "Blood Money," and talks about his passion for writing fiction. Jennet Conant recounts anecdotes about OSS spy Julia Child during WWII, decades before her public life as a master of French cuisine, from her book, "A Covert Affair: Julia Child and Paul Child in the OSS."
