US may drop Nord Stream 2 sanctions & bitcoin beating drags on

As the US economy continues to rally and the Covid-19 pandemic wanes in the nation, could we soon see the Federal Reserve boost lending rates? Former Fed insider Danielle DiMartino Booth offers her insight on the FOMC minutes and what moves the central bank could make as the summer looks set for an economic boom. 

The Biden administration has now declined to place sanctions on the highly controversial Nord Stream 2 pipeline project that is set to deliver natural gas from Russia to Germany.
