(U.S. Edition ) Representatives from 13 member countries of the World Trade Organization are gathering Wednesday to talk about reform, but two of the strongest members — the United States and China — won’t be there. President Trump, meanwhile, has reignited his attack on Federal Reserve chair Jay Powell. Then, we look at the floor of the U.S. Stock Exchange and wonder, “Why are people still there in this day and age?” Lauren Simmons at Rosenblatt Securities is the only woman employed as an equity trader at the exchange, and she helps us answer that question. Today’s show is sponsored by Alliance for Lifetime Income (retireyourrisk.org), Gobble (gobble.comand PayPal (paypal.com).
