Joining us to talk about the week’s business and economic news are Fusion’s Felix Salmon and Leigh Gallagher of Fortune Magazine. The big topics this week: a stinky GDP report, the next rate hike (2017 at the earliest) and what Hillary Clinton said about the economy in her convention speech Thursday night.

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