Leigh Gallagher of Fortune and Sudeep Reddy of Politico join Marketplace’s Kai Ryssdal to discuss the week’s business and economic news. This week, they talk about the Federal Reserve: Chair Janet Yellen’s trip to the Hill, Daniel Tarullo’s resignation from the board of governors and how President Donald Trump will tackle forming a new Fed. Also, eight years ago today, then-President Barack Obama signed an $800 billion stimulus package. Why hasn’t Trump followed through with any direct action for the economy yet?
