    Marketplace Money Military Spending and the Fiscal Cliff Tax hikes are one part of the "fiscal cliff." The other is so-called sequestration or automatic spending cut in government programs. If politicians can't agree on a deal to cut the deficit, the Pentagon alone faces half a trillion dollars in cuts. Defense spending typically brings to mind expensive weapons programs -- planes and tanks and the like. The show takes a look at what those cuts could mean for active duty personnel and returning veterans.

    It's Your World (a broadcast of the World Affairs Council) Renewing America The program's guest is Gus Speth, professor at Vermont Law School and senior fellow in the United Nations Foundation. The past few years have shown that America is facing hard times with complex challenges still ahead. The unemployment rate hovers around 8 percent, the income inequality gap continues to widen and American students are not receiving the best education possible. To add to this, the country is in the midst of political gridlock. To surmount these difficulties, Speth asserts that transformative change is essential in the American political economy. Speth will discuss his ideas for the specific adjustments that would be needed to move toward a new system, such as the "theory of change" that explains how system change can occur in America.
