Kristen Ragusin and the host discuss the current state of the economy, focusing on macro topics such as interest rates and recession. They discuss the misleading nature of unemployment numbers due to COVID-related changes in the workforce. The host mentions a potential mini-recession, but inflation has recently re-accelerated, and there are concerns about commodity prices and geopolitical issues impacting strategic reserves. The validity of measuring economic data in a post-COVID world is also questioned.
