Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists consider the fiscal cliff deal and the issues it left untouched: the debt ceiling and the threat of “reform” to social services. They also dissect the re-election of John Boehner as speaker of the House as well as the FTC’s decision on Google and antitrust and anti-competition laws.

Also up for discussion: Al Gore stands to make $70 million to $100 million off the sale of his Current TV network to Al-Jazeera. Is crony capitalism on the rise?

Joining Scheer and host Matt Miller on this week’s program is Luigi Zingales, a professor of finance at the University of Chicago.
