Gore - Economics

Democratic presidential nominee Al Gore likes to present himself as the candidate of substance and detail. Today, he might have outdone himself, presenting a 200-page tome containing his plan for the U.S. economy. Gore's blueprint includes a $300 billion "rainy day fund" as a buffer against an economic downturn, but Republican rival George W. Bush says Gore's spending programs would wipe out that much of the current surplus and more. From Cleveland, Madeleine Brand reports for NPR News.
