On today’s episode, NLW examines a theory articulated by folks like analyst Jim Bianco. His theory is, the biggest issue for equities markets right now isn’t that things are breaking but that while markets are down they’re down in an orderly fashion, unlikely to convince the Federal Reserve it needs to change policy anytime soon.
