Journalist and author Fareed Zakaria hosts this in-depth look at the major global developments of the week (the title's "GPS" stands for "Global Public Square"), with an emphasis on new ideas and innovative solutions to the World's toughest problems. Each episode also features Zakaria leading a panel discussion and interviewing a major world figure.

Fareed speaks with Lloyd Blankfein, former CEO and Chairman of Goldman Sachs, about the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank this week and what it means for our financial system. Gillian Tett, U.S. Editor-at-Large for the Financial Times, joins the show to discuss how the culture of Silicon Valley and social media contributed to this crisis. Plus, the Economist's Paris Bureau Chief Sophie Pedder talks with Fareed about the retirement reforms in France that have ignited nationwide strikes and protests.
