If we were going to bet on how the economy’s doing, we’d side with regular people out there every single time — the ones living it day in and day out, both individually and in terms of small businesses. With the strong likelihood that the Fed’s going to raise rates this week, we’ve done some calling around to our regulars.

Lisa Goldenberg is the president of the Delaware Steel Company, listen to our interview with her in the media player above. 

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