First up, more on U.S. and European sanctions against Russia for its role in Ukraine that are making it tough for Russia companies to borrow money. Today, Russia's finance minister said Russia will set up an emergency fund to help ease the cash crunch, size as yet unknown. Plus, Federal Reserve officials are meeting this week. On the agenda is the big monetary question of the year: when does the U.S. get to the point that too many jobs have been created? In other words, when do policymakers have to raise interest rates? And kids are back in school and whether they or their parents know it not, they're being mined...for their data. Increasingly, schools are introducing software to keep track of how kids learn and what they're doing. Marketplace's Adriene Hill is kicking off a series today we're calling "The Quantified Student."
