We now live in a strange, strange world. Stocks, bonds, gold and bitcoin aren’t supposed to all go up at the same time, yet here we are. Susan Schmidt from Westwood Holdings Group stopped by to explain what’s going on. Afterwards, we’ll take a look at South Africa’s economic woes, and then discuss Mexico’s decision to re-examine its trade relationship with the U.S. over natural gas. 

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.
