As this week comes to an end, we have a consensus that the fed will not raise the cost of borrowing in June anymore. But then came some inflation data today. For more on that, we consult Christopher Low, chief economist at FTN Financial in New York.

Next, Yale University’s med school is weighing its next move failing to win accreditation for an online version of its Master’s program for physician assistants.

Finally, Coachella is wrapping up in Southern California this weekend. The shows are about having a good time listening to music, but it’s also about what people are wearing, and it’s a big business. 

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.
