As of the late, Janet Yellen and co. had seemed keen on another rate hike, but the mood appears to be shifting. Diane Swonk of DS Economics stopped by to explain why there’s some dissent among Fed members. Afterwards, we’ll talk about why the major banks are required to take “stress tests,” and then look at how America’s productivity rate is doing. 

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