(Markets Edition) With the S&P up more than 2 percent this week, the markets aren’t doing too badly. According to expert Susan Schmidt, they are on the “positive side of neutral.” On today’s show, we’ll look at some of the factors helping keep volatility at bay. Afterwards, with the House Agriculture Committee considering the Farm Bill today, we’ll discuss how cutting crop insurance funding could be a problem if China makes good on its tariff threats. Plus: we talk with Mark Walsh, a veteran Supreme Court watcher and contributor to SCOTUSblog, on how things are looking for South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc — a case about whether states can force out-of-state online retailers to pay local and state taxes.
