No need to wait for the Sunday morning talk shows to get a fix on the past week’s economic roller coaster. Southern California’s SoCal Connected aired a special report last night examining the market swings and the current state of the economy hosted by our very own Kai Ryssdal. The program featured a roundtable of experts including Chris Thornberg, an economist and Founding Partner of Beacon Economics, Dan Schnur, Director of the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics at the University of Southern California, and syndicated columnist and Marketplace Money regular Liz Weston.
