Prospects for Monday, 8 September, 2008
With prospects for tonight's programme, here's today's output editor, Simon:
So the US Government has finally taken over Fannie and Freddie. The numbers involved in all this are huge. But what does it mean for the US economy? And also therefore for our economy? Is this international capitalism creaking at the seams - are we on the verge of the real crash - or is this the beginning of the end of the credit crunch? And what implications does it have for policy makers here - are the lessons that we should learn and will policy adjust to accommodate it.
Paul Mason is on the case but who should we interview off the back?
The Cabinet go on tour - wasn't this a Monster Raving Looney party manifesto commitment? Today they are in Birmingham and David Grossman has followed them. Could this be a distraction from things going on in Brighton where the TUC are debating public sector pay? Who should we try to speak to live? Should we try and help inter-Labour relations by connecting up Brighton with Birmingham?
And Susan Watts is talking to Professor Higgs - of the theorised Higgs boson particle - about the Large Hadron Collider and whether all this money spent on testing his theory is worth it.
We do have space for another story. What should it be?
All guest ideas, production ideas and story thoughts below please - or bring them to the 10.30 meeting.
See you then
