The Cost of Freedom is an American business program block on the Fox News Channel, which runs from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. ET Saturdays and several times throughout the weekend on sister network Fox Business Network, while a short seguments called Money Break air on FBN during weekend programming. The block consists of:
- Bulls & Bears, hosted by Dagen McDowell;
- Cavuto on Business, hosted by Neil Cavuto;
- Forbes on Fox, hosted by David Asman; and
- Cashin' In, hosted by Eric Bolling.
The different shows have a number of different business analysts, some of which are exclusive to specific shows while others rotate between the shows (except for Forbes on Fox, which will feature a guest analyst on its "Makers and Breakers" segment, but not one from the rotating list).
On some weeks, the block may air live as one two-hour show if a big news or business-related story breaks out during the week. These special editions of The Cost Of Freedom are hosted by Cavuto or Asman if the former is not available.
