As America braces for Wednesday's record 550-million dollar Powerball drawing, this evening "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes a collection of guests all charged with helping the dollars make sense.
One of the country's foremost experts on debt, author Dave Ramsey returns to the program, joining Piers Morgan live from his studio in Nashville, TN. The host of the syndicated radio program "The Dave Ramsey Show," the 52-year-old is also a four-time "New York Times" best-selling author, whose previous visits to the show have seen him touch on everything from the volatile markets and 2011's 2.4 trillion dollar debt deal.
Wednesday's financially-themed show will also bring viewers an interview with Tavis Smiley. A television personality and author, Smiley is urging President Obama to prioritize the "eradication of poverty in America," while his latest book with Cornel West is entitled "The Rich and the Rest of Us: A Poverty Manifesto." Tonight marks an encore performance for Smiley, who in the past has teamed with West to weigh in on the Trayvon Martin shooting and the anti-Obama sentiments of rocker Ted Nugent.
Meanwhile, with the pending "Fiscal Cliff" roughly a month away, Emil Henry and Steve Rattner will appear together, engaging in what figures to be a spirited debate. Personal friends who see the issue from different perspectives, Henry and Rattner have rich financial backgrounds, and vast economic backgrounds, which suggest a feisty exchange.
Tune in this evening at 9, as Piers Morgan covers the economic state of America, hitting issues of all types, from Powerball to poverty.
