AIRED:

Host Tom Snyder's guests are Snyder talks about not having time to visit museums in NYC, his friendship with Dr. Frank Field and school teachers who make Christmas more exciting for young students. Snyder interviews income tax resister and protestor Irwin Schiff, author of "The Biggest Con: How The Government Is Fleecing You." He was tried last year for failure to file tax returns and was found guilty. Justice Department used clip from his last appearance on "Tomorrow Show." Schiff appealed, arguing the clip was inadmissible evidence. Last week his conviction was overturned. He says people are not legally required to pay taxes (he hasn't paid since '73). He claims the government is destroying the country with excess taxation and that according to The Constitution government currency is counterfeit. He applauds passage of Proposition 13. Royal Little, founder of billion dollar business, Textron, discusses his book "How To Lose $100,000,000 and Other Valuable Advice." He relates some mistakes he's made in business so others may avoid them. He regards the trend toward large multinational companies as a good thing. Edward Lamb, termed "America's Wealthiest Radical," discusses his book "The Sharing Society." He believes American capitalism is doomed and that we must sooner or later join the world and look for resources outside our borders. He says young people's goal should not be to acquire assets because the U.S. is headed for economic self-destruction. He says his whole life now is devoted to advancement of The United Nations.
