On today’s episode of “The Breakdown,” NLW previews two things happening this week:

  • First, hope from the markets that slightly dovish comments from the Fed might prompt a relief rally.
  • Second, a preview of the discussions that will be taking place at the World Economic Forum, particularly around bitcoin and crypto.

“The Breakdown” is written, produced by and features Nathaniel Whittemore aka NLW, with editing by Rob Mitchell, research by Scott Hill and additional production support by Eleanor Pahl.
