Stephen Rosenberg on housing & Don Boudreaux corrects economic misunderstanding

The US economy contracted at a pace of 1 percent in the first quarter of 2014. And while this is a serious stumble -- and reflects a pattern of sluggishness that we’ve seen over the past five-years -- many believe that the downturn was likely weather driven. Erin takes a look.

Then we sit down with Greystone CEO Stephen Rosenberg to talk about the housing market, mortgages, and the effects of a possible end to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. After the break, Erin sits down with Prof. Don Boudreaux to talk about correcting economic misinformation one daily letter to the editor at a time.

Finally in today’s Big Deal, Edward Harrison and Erin talk about private data collection and how much they know about you. It’s probably a lot more than you think.
