The group discussed the school shooting in Connecticut, the fiscal cliff, quantitative easing, and the legalization of drugs.

This was the issue that caused the most commotion on the panel.  Is is interesting to watch who agrees with whom here.

Not many of the Sunday morning talk shows discuss this issue, and it is refreshing to see this discussion take place.

No previous predictions were verifiable this week. We will have many changes in two weeks since there have been many fiscal cliff predictions over the previous weeks.
