Welcome to the final act of Masterpiece-Political-Theater. While Congress acts as though fiscal brinkmanship is a form of haute-Kabuki, the markets have taken notice. We cut through the hype and hyper-partisan bickering -- and tell you about the fallout from weeks of Political-Pigheadedness!
And, Greece is in the news again, now that yet another slice of bailout funds are on the table. Thankfully, the Deputy-Prime-Minister of Greece, Evangelos Venizelos, sat down with Erin and provided fascinating insight into Greece's "lost generation."
Also with the "fiscal can" now kicked -- if ever so briefly -- we can turn our attention to the Federal Reserve. Where did all those trillions in freshly minted digital Fed money go? Justine Underhill charts the surprising answer. Then, David Stockman weighs in on the end game for the Fed.
Finally, it might be football season, but we're not covering 'da Bears. DeBeers and a record diamond auction at Sotheby's is today's Big Deal.
** Looks like Lauren Lyster's 1st replacement show with Perianne Boring didn't take; RT America tries again with former de facto co-host of Prime Interest, Bob English (a contributor to Bob Wenzel's Econ. Policy Journal & Zero Hedge) and Erin Ade. I've personally never heard of Erin, anyone here familiar with her work? Well, either way, hope this one fares better than Prime Interest.
