Welcome to our very first show! Here's what's in your Prime Interest today:

Good news, America! The Treasury is in the green -- if only temporarily. The government said Monday it would pay down $35 billion of its $16.8 trillion debt this quarter. For this, we can thank higher than expected tax receipts. But don't hold your breath, because the Treasury expects to plunge back into the red next quarter to the tune of $223 billion, and that's with the Fed buying about 60 percent of that amount. Don't worry, though, because, per Chairman Bernanke, this is NOT monetization. We talk about deficits and the debt crisis with Peter Schiff.

And to mark another milestone, it's been 100 days since the President's second term. In a press conference this morning, he warned of Syria's probable use of chemical weapons. While cautioning that more evidence must be gathered before taking action, he did warn the regime has crossed the "red line." We take a look into the fine print of military spending in a special segment today.

Also, Walmart wants to get into banking. A three year moratorium imposed by Dodd-Frank will expire in July, allowing purely commercial firms to own industrial loan companies and other limited-purpose banking charters. Perianne and Bob discuss the revolution in the payments system in today's Daily Duel.

it may just be me, but...

it seems clear Lyster knows much more about the biz, than Ms. Boring. But I'm willing to see how the show develops.

regardless, I'm checking less and less from RT (since Dina Gusovsky left) & RTA, now that Lauren's gone. But her new gig at Yahoo, doesn't lend to long in-depth discussions or interviews as capital account did, regardless of how many short segments she has there now on Yahoo.

well, that and my computer/phone is not too happy with the Yahoo Finance page.

I hope Lauren got a better contract with Yahoo, but frankly, I don't really see her audience transferring over, IMO. but I suppose that could just be me.

Alyona was the best...

I think shes now hosting on HuffPost Live. RTAmerica seems to have incredible amounts of turnover and few top notch pros. Nevertheless, none of them are more nauseating than Al Sharpton and Lawrence O'Donnell. COMPLETE FAILURE, while Dylan Ratigan was run out the door

Sorry mate, but Alyona

Sorry mate, but Alyona probably doesn't have your political views. She was no libertarian... If so HP would have never hired her.

Miss Boring did ask pretty good questions.

Peter seemed pleased with them a couple of times.

You're right. Time will tell.
