(Markets Edition) We're taking a snapshot of the economics of the midterm elections, since Monday was the deadline for campaigns sharing their fundraising and spending numbers from the past three months. Nancy Marshall-Genzer has been following the money and tells us more. Then we take the conversation to foreign affairs and ask the question: In the face of an international crisis, would the U.S. be able to count on help from its allies? We spoke to former U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, who served under President Obama and co-wrote a piece discussing the use – or misuse – of the considerable economic power of the United States. Today's show is sponsored by GAIN Capital Group (gaincapital.com) and PayPal (paypal.com).
