This week on NOW:
  • Hidden Assets: NOW asks - who pays the bills for freedom?
  • The Last Stop: NOW ventures inside a home for troubled youths in search of healing and hope.

In "Hidden Assets," NOW producer Bryan Myers investigates how some Americans are avoiding paying their rightful share of taxes, and sometimes doing it with the help of the world's biggest banks. As many as two million Americans - most of them with incomes in the top 1% - may be hiding money overseas. The estimated cost to the U.S. Treasury? $70 billion a year.

Are we doing enough to help America's foster children? This week, a special report offers a rare look at one residential treatment center — Children's Village in Dobbs Ferry, New York — that is trying to heal some of our most troubled youths and guide them back into an often misunderstanding society.
