Listen To The Story

David Gura of Bloomberg and Catherine Rampell of the Washington Post join Kai Ryssdal to wrap up this week's business and economic news. This week, they evaluate: the interest rate hike (and Dr. Yellen's thoughts on the American economy,) government stimulus and what it'll do for an economy that's already boosted and how much credit President-elect Trump deserves for the stock market rally.

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
