The Presidential Daily Brief


  1. A Week of Financial Talks and Fiscal Wrangling in Washington, D.C.

    U.S. House and Senate committees hold a series of hearings next week on the budget for the 2015 fiscal year, and things could get heated thanks to the unveiling of Paul Ryan’s controversial Republican budget earlier this week. On Thursday, Washington will also play host to the finance ministers and central bank governors of the G20 in advance of the IMF and World Bank’s spring meetings, which kick off on Friday. These are the major annual meetings of the world’s financial stability giants. Low international growth in the aftermath of the global financial crisis will feature high on the agenda.
