The Cost of Freedom was 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 segment called Money Break airs on FBN during weekend programming. The block consisted of:

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.

In December 2017, it was announced that the Cost of Freedom block will be replaced by a new two-hour show, Cavuto Live, hosted by Neil Cavuto, beginning on January 20, 2018.[1][2]
