Monologue

Dr. Wallach starts the show stating that many financial experts are warning of a major bank collapse in the future.  Recommending starting a home-based business as a way  to "recession-proof" your life.

Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a report that found more and more doctors are not waiting for brain death in organ donors.  A newer procedure called donation after cardiac death accounted for 10% of all donors last year.  This procedure is when doctors pulled the plug on ventilators that are keeping a patients alive.  When the heart stops death is declared and the organs harvested.  Many medical ethics experts believe that this procedure goes against existing organ harvesting laws and ethics.
