After my first two new Fox Business shows, I’m taking a break for Christmas and the New Year’s holiday. We resume Thursday, Jan. 7.
Again, I ask your help. Last time, most of you said: Go with global warming for the first show — “Atlas Shrugged” can wait — and so I did. “Atlas” will be the first show after the holidays.

Today, I need your help in deciding what to do with the studio audience. I wanted an audience because I enjoy speaking on college campuses and I love the spontaneous give-and-take.
Students passionately pose questions like, “How can you defend business when free markets brought us to the crisis we suffer now?!”
I like explaining that what I defend isn’t business but economic freedom and markets. Businessmen — with some honorable exceptions — are usually happy to collude with government to stifle competition and harm consumers and workers. I hate that.
