There’s news that the U.S. economy only grew by .2 percent last quarter. We’ll take a closer look at that disappointing figure. Plus, more on the SEC’s expected new rules that would require companies to release reports comparing the pay of top earners vs. financial performance. More on that. And The Brookings today releases a comprehensive evaluation of colleges’ contributions to student economic success. We consider how these “value-added” rankings help students and parents make decisions about college? What’s missing when you only look at economic outcomes? Plus, more on the news that the NFL will start paying Federal taxes.
