With the stock and bond markets reacting to global events differently, Julia Coronado from Macropolicy Perspectives joins us to explain the disconnect. Afterwards, we’ll look at the job market for EPA employees amid uncertainty about their future with the agency, and then explore what will happen with health care premium costs if Obamacare subsidies disappear.

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