As Israeli politicians are in tasks to form a coalition that may oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Fareed talk to the New York Times’ Tom Friedman about what that would mean – for Israel, for Palestinians, and for the 2-state solution. Then he speaks to The Atlantic's Anne Applebaum and Belarusian reporter Hanna Liubakova about Belarus's "state sponsored hijacking" & subsequent arrest of dissident journalist Roman Protasevich. Then Michael Lewis dives into his new book "The Premonition," where he investigates why the world's wealthiest nation – the U.S. – bumbled its initial COVID-19 response so badly. And, lastly, Fareed looks at why the worldwide decline in birth rates could have potentially devastating consequences for rapidly aging populations.

GUESTS: Thomas Friedman, Anne Applebaum, Hanna Liubakova, Michael Lewis
