    Moyers & Company [#149H] Fiscal Cliffs and Fiscal Realities * When it comes to America's economic health, all anyone seems to talk about is the "fiscal cliff," and the perils of our inevitable plunge. But media's favorite metaphor is distracting us from actual and crucial fiscal realities. This week, independent political and economic analysts Bruce Bartlett and Yves Smith join Bill in a discussion that's become as rare as it is necessary - why are Washington insiders talking about the deficit crisis and not the jobs crisis?
    Bartlett, former advisor to Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush, got into hot water with fellow conservatives when he aired concerns about the direction of their ideology and wrote critically of the second George Bush. His most recent book is The Benefit and The Burden: Tax Reform - Why We Need It, and What It Will Take. Yves Smith, who spent more than 25 years in the financial services industry, is the founder and editor of the popular blog Naked Capitalism, and runs a successful management consulting firm.< br />* Following the conversation, Bill shares his perspective on one of the most corrupt D.C. fixtures - the revolving door between Washington leadership and lobbying. That lucrative pathway ensures that "when push comes to shove, corporate interests will have the upper hand in the close calls that determine public policy... no matter which party is in power."
    * Finally on the broadcast, poet and former publishing executive James Autry joins Bill to talk about issues of art and of heart. He shares his poems with Bill and discusses his and his wife Sally's challenging but inspiring experience raising their autistic child.

    Overdraft This documentary presents a broad explanation of America's federal debt and the choices Americans will have to make to fix it. It describes the connections, opportunities, and consequences of debt at the federal, state, and local levels of government. The program includes interviews with prominent leaders in government, economics, and journalism alongside stories of citizens from across the country who must cope with the consequences - and sometimes invisible hand - of America's debt. In the end, viewers are left with choices to change a gloomy forecast. duration 55:46   STEREO TVG

    Price of Coffee For over 100 years, coffee has been fundamental to the economy of Nicaragua. But the wars of the late 1970's and the 1980's all but destroyed the country's reputation as a premier producer of quality beans. In The Price of Coffee, Nicaraguans strive to achieve their former place in the hierarchy of coffee producers. This story provides a backdrop not only to illustrate the complicated process of bean to cup but the social issues of economic and environmental sustainability in the worldwide coffee market. duration 27:27   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1615H] Same-Sex Marriage - In March the Supreme Court will hear arguments on an amendment that bans same-sex marriage In California, and on the Defense of Marriage Act, which denies same-sex couples who marry the same federal benefits accorded to heterosexual marriages. The Supreme Court decision will have broad implications and, as Tim O'Brien reports, one possible outcome of these cases could be the requirement that all states recognize gay marriage. Christmas Gift Giving - The tradition of giving Christmas presents is often tied to the magi, or wise men, who according to the Bible story, brought precious gifts to the baby Jesus. But many Christians say things have gotten out of hand. The average American family is projected to spend about $750 on Christmas this year. Kim Lawton looks at the ways some churches are urging their members to avoid consumerism and practice more meaningful Christmas gift giving. duration 26:46   STEREO TVRE
