Obama in Cuba and Amazon’s lobby efforts

Index funds are beating actively managed investing across Europe over the short-term and the long-term and Marriott is back with a deal for Starwood; Edward Harrison weighs in. Then, RT’s Marina Portnaya reports on the implications of President Obama’s visit to Cuba from Miami. Afterwards, Bianca Facchinei takes a look at existing home sales, the Halliburton-Baker Hughes merger and Greece.

After the break, Ameera David sits down with David Beckworth, assistant professor of economics at Western Kentucky University and adjunct scholar at the Cato Institute, to talk about oil and the Fed. And in The Big Deal, Edward and RT’s Manuel Rapalo discuss Amazon.
