(Markets Edition) We take a short dive into Friday’s GDP report, which showed a steady U.S. economy. However, the report’s information on growth during the summer might explains some of the stock market volatility we’ve been seeing in recent weeks. Julia Coronado at Macropolicy Perspectives helps us set the tone for Monday. We then turn our economic lens to Brazil, where a controversial far-right candidate just became that country’s president. He’s known as an economic mover and shaker, but also as someone who denigrates people based on gender, race and sexual orientation. The BBC’s Victoria Craig had more to tell us. Then, we look at how the U.S. trade stance could have effects on China’s military hardliners. We talked to Shaun Rein of the China Market Research Group for more. Today’s show is sponsored by Alliance for Lifetime Income (retireyourrisk.org), PayPal (paypal.com)  and Selligent (selligent.com). (10/29/2018)
