Airing on Tuesday Dec. 9, 2014: Members of the Federal Reserve's Open Market Committee have entered their quiet period ahead of next week’s meeting. We look at how they are handling interest rates. Plus, falling oil prices are good, right? In a fossil-fuel based global economy, the consumer winners greatly outnumber the oil-producer losers. Finally, we look at businesses that benefit from a security breach like the Sony hacks. They don’t just profit off the victims, but off the fear of would-be victims.
