Preparing market for rate hikes; more on oil, Saudi Arabia & ISIS
Iraq has been hit especially hard by the drop in oil prices. Guest host Ameera David weighs in. Edward is joined by Marin Katusa, author of ‘The Colder War’, who thinks the $100 billion BRICS bank will help solve the problems that Russia and China want solved, but won’t necessarily help other economies in the emerging markets. RT’s Lindsay France talks about the Apple Watch and recent revelations about the CIA attempting to break into Apple’s software encryption. Tim Duy, senior director of the Oregon Economic Forum, explains how the Federal Reserve has managed to be so influential over the US economy despite only 30 percent of Americans being able to identify Janet Yellen. And in The Big Deal, Ameera and Edward discuss some of the biggest tech stories of the day including Apple and Tesla.
