Does this podcast spark joy?

How often do you check your home's value?
00:25:45
If you own a home, or want to own one, chances are you’ve spent some time with one of the many apps that estimate home values. Watching those prices rise, at least on paper, has become something of a national pastime — but it could be doing a number on you. But first, we look at the race with China to make better artificial intelligence. Plus, a conversation with Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg.

The government could shut down again next week and some workers still don't have back pay
00:26:06
The government reopened two weeks ago, which means, yes, we're just one week from another potential shutdown. The thing is, it takes time to get an organization that large started again. Case in point: Thousands of workers still don't have back pay. We'll start with that, and the biggest economic headlines of the week. Plus: How streaming music is changing life for artists in Mexico.

We'll tell you why it's such a common ingredient in many foods, including beer.

Who's excited for the "Big Game"?
00:26:18
We can say "Super Bowl" as much as we want. Super Bowl, Super Bowl, S U P E R  B O W L. But if you're an Atlanta-area business or an advertiser hoping to capitalize on the game, you have to get creative because the NFL has that trademark locked down. But first, we bring you the latest from the Federal Reserve, which announced Wednesday it's not hiking rates any time soon. Plus, could you quit Google or Amazon for a week? (No, you couldn't.)

Modern monetary theory is a sink

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said recently that modern monetary theory, or MMT, should “be a larger part of our conversation” when it comes to funding ambitious policies she’s proposed.

Trumponomics
00:25:54
In the past two years, President Trump has changed the way we talk about business and economic life in this country. He views the economy through a transactional lens: there are always deals to be made or renegotiated. He's the CEO of America, Inc., relying largely on his instincts and owning successes and stock market records. We’ve identified 10 moments that illuminate how the president thinks and what's changed, and we'll roll them out all week. Also on today's show: businesses with discounts for federal workers, how China's mobile payments business passed its GDP, and pass-throughs explained.

Things weren't looking exactly glass half-full today at the World Economic Forum, the annual meeting of economists, bankers and world leaders. During a news conference, IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde said the global economy was growing “more slowly than expected.” We break down what that means in a larger context. Today also marks the 31st day of the partial government shutdown and no end appears to be in sight. Some furloughed workers, in trying to keep up with finances, are becoming the targets of scams. Then, we talk tech and whether or not 5G is here, or if it's all just marketing. Also: what exactly it takes to be a park ranger.
Jan 21, 2019
The Fed's view on the shutdown
00:26:23

Plus, as always, your recap of the week's news from our analysts.
