Nela Richardson of Redfin and Sheelah Kolhatkar of The New Yorker join us to discuss the week’s business and economics news. We’ll get into inflation at the consumer level and how Trump’s threats of nuclear war aren’t having much effect on Wall Street. Plus, with Trump singling out Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, we look at what’s next for the president’s agenda. 

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