Michael Froman says “important progress” has been made on the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations over market access and in addressing issues such as intellectual property, digital trade, and the treatment of state-owned enterprises. Erin weighs in. David Merkel of Aleph Investments tells us if the cluster of lower earnings we’re seeing is a coincidence or a harbinger of a broader earnings slowdown and gives us his take on the strong dollar. Mark Weisbrot of the Center for Economic and Policy Research tells us what the fundamental problem in the eurozone is and gives us his take on the key economic and negotiating issues in Greece.
