Christopher Whalen on the BofA settlement & Dan Ariely on psychology and finance

Today’s lead story is Ebola: Aside from the thousands of deaths it has caused, another significant problem is the impact the outbreak will likely have on affected economies -- especially considering countries like Liberia were expected to experience positive growth this year. Boom Bust Producer Bianca Facchinei takes a look.

Then, Edward Harrison talks to author and investment banker, Chris Whalen, to discuss his thoughts on the recent Bank of America settlement. After the break, Edward speaks with Dan Ariely, author and professor of psychology and behavioral economics at Duke University, to explore how psychology affects real world financial decision making.

And in The Big Deal, Edward is joined by Thom Hartmann, host of RT’s “The Big Picture”, to talk about poverty. Take a look!
