On today’s show, we’ll talk about Aetna’s threat to pull back from health care exchanges if blocked from a merger with Humana. Plus, we’ll interview Nobel-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz about why he thinks the euro is flawed and what the U.S. can learn from Europe’s economic woes. 

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