(Markets Edition) The European Union announced a system that lets companies buy things from Iran, a payments-through-bartering system that’s called the “Special Purpose Vehicle.” We ask how this fits in with talk surrounding economic sanctions. Also, the Federal Reserve is meeting Tuesday and Wednesday to talk about the economy and the cost of borrowing.
