(Markets Edition) From a markets perspective, we’re in a lull right now. No data releases, no big announcements from the Fed. But they will be looking out for soundbites, especially around trade, according to Westwood Holdings Group’s Susan Schmidt. We’ll hear from her about how all this tariff talk could *eventually* cause concern to creep into the markets. Afterwards, we’ll discuss a new technology that’ll help preserve avocados, and then we’ll chat with the Economist’s Natasha Loder about why automation doesn’t necessarily spell doom for radiologists. Today’s podcast is sponsored by Carbonite (carbonite.com), Indeed (Indeed.com/marketplace), and Michigan Economic Development Corporation (planetm.michiganbusiness.org). (06/20/2018)
