​Hanke on strong dollar & emerging markets, Prasad on India

Americans might want to thank the CIA for the nifty travel tips provided ahead of this holiday season. However, the CIA didn’t exactly provide these tips willingly…we have WikiLeaks to thank for that. Erin weighs in. Steve Hanke, professor of economics at Johns Hopkins University, tells us what impact the strong US dollar is going to have on emerging markets and his take on if the Federal Reserve should take emerging market volatility into account when making decisions. Eswar Prasad, author of ‘The Dollar Trap: How the US Dollar Tightened Its Grip on Global Finance’ tells us how the Indian economy is doing and what kind of growth he expects there in 2015. And in The Big Deal, Erin and Edward Harrison discuss which CEOs made Santa’s nice and naughty lists this year.
