Closing Out the Old Year and Ringing In the New

Hosted by

Those end-of-the-year wrap-ups are starting to show up everywhere, and they're not making for cheery reading. 2010 was a rough year for many people who continued to struggle. In the United States, the news was dominated by the economy and big changes on the political landscape as Tea Partiers shook up the status quo. What's ahead on horizon? In 2011, where should we be looking for good news? Who's thinking about new answers to solve ongoing problems and prevent future disasters? How do disasters and downturns affect our cultural psyche? How does the world look beyond our own horizons? Are things brighter for the developing world?
