Airing on Wednesday, June 17, 2015: We know that words matters, especially in the case of words on the way from the Federal Reserve. For more, we talk to Lindsey Piegza, chief economist at Stiefel Nicolaus. Plus, are we experiencing a baby bounce? While the great recession slowed down the birth rate in America, the numbers are coming back up. We'll also talk about the Port of New Jersey, where the roadways around it are so congested that picking up one shipping container and trucking it five miles can take all day.
