Yes, the shutdown is over -- news for those of you who might have been hiding under a rock in one of our newly-re-opened national parks. The US bond market is now saved for a whopping 3 months. But in case you were just itching to crack open the Moet, you might want to hold off.... we have some surprising insight for you. Justine Underhill joins us live from the Capitol to highlight the "procine morsels" that lawmakers dropped into this last minute deal.
Also, does the amount of debt, private and public, even matter? To answer this and many more questions, Bob attended the Casey Research Summit, which was packed with astute market observers and economists, alike. None other than Doug Casey, of www.CaseyResearch.com , was there to weigh in. Bob asks him about the significance of the amount of government debt, particularly that of the US.
And Erin treks to Florida to talk with a couple of self-styled "preppers," who take the threat of post-Dollar Armageddon seriously.
Finally, you may have heard it before, but not like this...I'm talking about today's modern-day-gold-rush that is the-hunt-for-BitCoin.
and, please check out the debut episode of Boom Bust:

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.
