Janet Yellen is set to brief Congress this week on the state of the economy, and there are some market participants who are excited by this. But Lindsey Piegza, chief economist at investment company Stifel Nicolaus, joins us to explain why she has some reservations about her testimony. Next, we’ll look at Japan’s strength with exports and its weakness with business at home. And afterwards, we’ll look at how weather analysis is being incorporated in the curriculum at some fashion schools.
