Merle Hazard: "Fiscal Cliff"

by Calculated Risk on 6/27/2012 01:40:00 PM

A new song from Merle Hazard called the "Fiscal Cliff"

This was debuted on PBS Making Sen$e this morning, see: A Q-and-A, Plus a Ditty and Contest as U.S. Races Toward the 'Fiscal Cliff'

They are having a contest for a new song. From Merle:

Though I'm a country singer, I also love surf-style music. The only thing wrong with the genre is that these songs are always -- of course -- about surfing, as well as teenage romance and drag races. There should be more on macro-economic topics and political economy. So I'd like to do another one like 'Fiscal Cliff,' but I'm out of ideas. I'm hoping NewsHour audience might help. I have in mind a song contest. Submit a topic, a key phrase, or a whole lyric. Whatever you like.
