Inside the Transition: Economy

Last week, President-elect Barack Obama and Vice President-elect Joe Biden introduced the nation to the team they've chosen to help guide us out of the economic crisis.

Our cameras were there as the news developed, and we asked Brian Deese, a member of the Transition's Economic Policy Team, to give us a behind-the-scenes look at the process.

We interviewed Paul Volcker and Austan Goolsbee -- both of the President's Economic Recovery Advisory Board -- and Peter Orszag, Director-designate of the White House Office of Management and Budget, to hear how they plan to approach the challenges and opportunities ahead of us.
