The Pig Is Dead: Conversations About Moral Budgeting

For generations, federal representatives were elected to “bring home the bacon,” says former Sen. Alan Simpson, “and now the pig is dead.” Solving the debt problem raises basic philosophical and moral questions about the kind of government and society Americans want. In this 12-minute news video production for Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly, correspondent Bob Abernethy explores the diverse moral perspectives that undergird the partisan national politics surrounding the effort to solve America’s current budget and economic crisis. Addressing the economic crisis on a local, personal level, Wayne, Ann and Dave Miller have used their personal business incomes to run a homeless shelter in Helena, Mont. The shelter increasingly supplies temporary bed space or midmonth meals to working families and families who are without work for the first time in their lives. See this inspirational news video about private moral economics, produced for Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly.
