More From This Episode

The snow delayed our interview with International Monetary Fund Managing Director and Chairwoman Christine Lagarde, and by the time we sat down this morning, there was a lot to talk about: rising inequality, being a woman in finance and President Trump’s trade war with China. “I cross my fingers every morning and my toes every evening,” she said. “Because I hope that it is going to end up with a way to fix the system, not break it.” Then: Why law schools are closing and the the finances behind that broken Nike shoe.
