But the can's just been kicked down the road - another Congressional confrontation over spending cuts, entitlement programs and possible default will take place within a few months. Nonetheless, Martin Wolf, the chief economics commentator of the Financial Times, believes that no matter the rhetoric and flamethrowing, the debt ceiling has to be raised because the alternatives are "simply, unimaginably horrible."
    This week, Wolf - who has been described as "the premier financial and economics writer in the world" - joins Bill Moyers for a discussion of the current DC crisis and its potentially lethal impact on the global economy. Wolf views the debt ceiling as the legislative equivalent of a nuclear bomb the US has aimed at itself. But its deadly fallout could spread everywhere.
    * Bill also speaks with media scholar Sherry Turkle, who says that the Internet and social media have changed not only what we do but also who we are. She's a clinical psychologist and one of the first to study the impact of computers on culture and society. A professor at MIT and director of the university's Initiative on Technology and Self, Turkle has written several important books, her most recent, Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other.

    BART Unions Strike After Negotiations Collapse
    The breakdown of negotiations between BART management and the workers' unions affects commuters, employers, and businesses across the Bay Area. The BART strike and an ongoing labor dispute between AC Transit and its workers raises questions about the role of unions and whether transit workers should even be banned from striking.

    In her nearly three years as Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court, Tani Cantil-Sakauye has weathered severe state budget cuts, revolt by a band of unhappy lower court judges and controversy over a bloated statewide computer system she inherited from her predecessor. She sat down with senior correspondent Scott Shafer to talk about crime, punishment, how growing up the daughter of Filipino-Portuguese farmworkers affects her view from the bench and what she learned from her years as a blackjack dealer in Las Vegas.
