A New START for Nuclear Disarmament

Hosted by

In the Czech Republic today, the US and Russia signed a new treaty to cut back on nuclear weapons. Will it make the world safer? Is the diplomacy as important as the military strategy? Also, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner meets with Chinese officials today in Beijing, and livestock producers are on the defensive against the Humane Society's well-funded campaign for better treatment of animals. What will it mean for consumers at Wendy's, IOHP, Applebee's and Wal-Mart?
