Will warm weather loosen some change from our pockets? Seems like it may be the case — The government is reporting the biggest monthly spending for personal spending in six years. More on that. Plus, we’d like to believe our career success is all because of brains and hard work. But economic research tells us that a fair amount of it comes down to accidents of birth and timing. And new cases of bird flu appear to be on the wane, after costing U.S. poultry farmers more than 48 million birds. But even as outbreaks subside, experts are still unsure why the virus wreaked such havoc.

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