Marketplace Morning Report

with David Brancaccio

Shifting the economy into neutral

November 29, 2018

Fed Chairman Jerome Powell's big speech Wednesday helped the markets rally, and he emphasized why it's desirable to keep interest rates neutral, but what does "neutral" mean, anyway. It's that time of the year again: when lawmakers decide on a budget and try to avoid a federal government shutdown. So, where is Congress' on their long-awaited budget fix?

Today's show is sponsored by the University of Florida Warrington School of Business and Paypal.
