January 13, 2009 - Niall Ferguson

In this episode, Russians cut off the natural gas pipeline to Europe in the most boring James Bond plotline ever. Plus, a new threat from England -- you'll never guess what they've managed to put into a pie. And my guest Niall Ferguson has written a financial history of the world. Why didn't he write a book with a happy ending? A house divided against itself cannot stand, but it's worth squat in this market anyway. This is The Colbert Report.
