Mr. Ratigan Goes To Washington

Thursday’s events probably left you with some burning questions about the underlying strength of our economy. Well, Friday brings a unique opportunity to get some answers from the people in charge.  Dylan Ratigan is heading to Washington, DC for the CNBC White House Summit - an incredible gathering that has never happened before.

Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez, Office of Management and Budget Director Rob Portman, and President Bush’s Chief Economic Advisor Edward Lazear are all coming together for a round-table discussion live from the Roosevelt Room, right next to the Oval Office.

What's the most pressing question you have for this extraordinary group?

Guy Adami wants to know what Secretary Paulson thinks about weakness in the dollar.

Eric Bolling wants to know how closely Secretary Paulson works with Fed Chief Ben Bernanke.

Jeff Macke wants Dylan to flesh out America’s relationship with China on a trade basis. Ultimately, he wants to know how our government plans  to manage the relationship with a country that is so different ideologically from our own.
