Episode Description 
The Federal Reserve reaffirmed, to no one's surprise, that its stimulus will continue. So if that's not surprising, why are investors and economists so concerned about when the Fed might decide to "taper?" Also, the National Black Child Development Institute says the conversation around poverty and development goals for the African-American community need to be shifted. And finally, the battle to save coal from President Obama’s alleged War on Coal is now fully engaged. The coal industry and its political supporters have launched their counterattack to EPA rules.
