Work & Happiness: The Human Cost of Welfare

NEW Our current welfare system spent more than $1 trillion in social spending last year, which would be a worthwhile expenditure if it was breaking the cycle of poverty. Many think it’s doing just the opposite. Political leaders and activists tout our welfare system’s good intentions, but what about those living on welfare? Do they think the system is working? Work & Happiness: The Human Cost of Welfare, dives into the personal lives of four individuals who are currently on welfare, and examines the struggles they experience with our current system.

Turmoil & Triumph

Shot on location from Geneva to Reykjavik, from the Kremlin to the halls of the State Department in Washington, D.C., the sweep of history is revealed through the memories of Shultz, former cabinet members, personal witnesses, journalists, historians and exclusive archival materials. The series brings to life the gripping tensions of these times; the fear of war in the Middle East, the shock of the barracks bombing that killed 241 Marines, and the delicate manipulations of summitry that ended the Cold War and helped determine the future of peace on the planet.

Throughout, Turmoil & Triumph reveals how George Shultz’s relentless determination combined with his use of national strength made him one of the most effective Secretaries of State in the nation’s history, respected and admired by lawmakers on both sides of the aisle. The series also looks at the forces that shaped this remarkable man, from his boyhood in New Jersey, through his service in the military, his rise to Dean of the University of Chicago School of Business to his work today as a passionate and tireless advocate for nuclear disarmament.

School Inc. - A Personal Journey with Andrew Coulson

NEW Twenty years ago, East L.A.’s Garfield High School boasted a math teacher so good he inspired a Hollywood movie. Under his guidance, Garfield’s low-income Hispanic students outperformed Beverly Hills High on the AP calculus exam. But until his passing in 2010, Jaime Escalante’s name had been largely forgotten, because in K-12 education, excellence is like a floating candle—burning brightly for a time, then fizzling, unable to touch off a larger blaze.

School Inc. takes viewers on a worldwide personal quest for an answer to the question: if you build a better way to teach math—or history or English—why doesn’t the world beat a path to your door, like they do in other industries? The three-part series looks at Korea, where teachers can make millions of dollars a year; Indian schools that charge $5 a month; and Chile and Sweden, where top K-12 teachers and schools have already begun to "scale-up," reaching large and ever-growing numbers of students. Hosted by the late Andrew Coulson, senior fellow at Cato’s Center for Educational Freedom, the program also exposes the unfamiliar and sometimes startling realities of schools in the U.S.

India Awakes

with Johan Norberg

India is coming alive and flourishing economically. In fact, Citi Group estimates that by 2050, they will have the world’s largest economy, larger than China and the United States. For many centuries, only the powerful and elite have prospered in India, while the rest of the population lived in poverty. In the past 20 years, India has made great strides in advancing human rights and finding new ways to flex their fiscal freedom.
