Behind the Markets Podcast: Dr. Diego Rodriguez Palenzuela, Kevin Flanagan, & Jillian Fornito

Ep. 104

Show from 3/29/19

We go global when host Jeremy Schwartz talks to an economist from the European Central Bank. What impact are the Brexit negotiations having on the global economy, and why is the ECB’s President worried about negative interest rates? We also talk about whether the Fed’s hints that it’s done raising interest rates will affect the markets and Italy's impact on the ECB. Tune in
