Joining Kai to talk about the week’s business and economic news are Leigh Gallagher from Fortune and the Wall Street Journal’s Sudeep Reddy. The big topics this week: the Consumer Price Index and inflation, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen’s speech in Rhode Island and Los Angeles increasing its minimum wage to $15.
