PODCAST: Happy birthday Dodd-Frank

Obama signs the Dodd-Frank financial reform bill. Mercer, the primary donor to Prosperity First, opposes the bill, but his congressman supports it.

The Dodd-Frank Act turns four, just in time for strong critiques of its implementation. Plus, more on a new study showing that millennials tend to fear investment, instead opting to save money in cash. Also, in an incongruous pairing, Goldman Sachs will fund an educational program on Rikers Island. It's part of a social impact bond, where investors put money into social programs with the promise of profit if the program meets its goals.
