With his cerebral and calm demeanor, Steve Rattner has distilled various pieces of economic data into an easily digestible television segment each time he appears on MSNBC’s flagship program, Morning Joe.
Rattner, who was Pres. Obama’s “car czar,” is known for his economic charts and providing perspective on data points like unemployment numbers, interest rates, presidential job performance and more. With the recent market volatility (tariffs, China, global trade) and uncertain economic outlook, we thought we’d discuss the economic issues of the day with Steve.
Join us for this illuminating conversation that will cover a wide range of topics.
