President Trump’s ouster of FBI Director James Comey could have big economic implications. We’ll explore the obstacles the firing could have on budget negotiations; policies involving big money, like tax reform; and the markets.

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

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.
