Nela Richardson of Redfin and Cardiff Garcia of FT Alphaville join us to discuss the week’s business and economic news. Janet Yellen this week said she doesn’t think we will see another big financial crisis in her lifetime. We analyze if we’re safer today than we were eight years ago. Plus, with uncertainty around health care, we look at what this means for the economy and how people will respond.
