(U.S. Edition) When asked about the biggest threat to his presidency Tuesday night, President Trump pointed to the Federal Reserve in his answer. Marketplace’s Nancy Marshall-Genzer has more. After the numbers, we discuss the World Bank’s annual report on global poverty, which was released Wednesday. The number of people living below the international poverty line has dropped, but extreme poverty still exists, and could still get worse for many.

Today’s show is sponsored by Alliance for Lifetime Income (retireyourrisk.org), Gobble (gobble.com) and Michigan Economic Development Corporation (planetm.com). (10/17/2018)
