    What the FAFSA misses

    The deadline for students and parents to get their federal financial aid form into colleges and universities is this Sunday. With all that data you input on income and savings, there’s still something big missing: overall household wealth. Some education policy researchers say the financial aid system should be taking a closer look at big assets, like homes. Also: Federal prosecutors are recommending criminal charges against Boeing, and visas for nurses are running out again.

    The Supreme Court, tribes and online gambling

    In a flurry of recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions, the Justices’ lack of action on one case is a major victory for the tribal gaming industry. The court left in place an agreement between the Seminole Tribe of Florida and the state of Florida, and left the door open for tribal nations to expand into online gaming. We’ll delve into the impact. And we’ll also examine how immigration policy has shaped the U.S. economy.

Burn volume

Please keep normal tone, very annoying

Two stars off because of the commercials

I do not want to listen to Lee Hawkins and I'm tired of hearing the commercials, sometimes multiple on the same episode. This is not the only commercial they have done this with and I’m close to unsubscribing because of this annoyance alone.

Great up to date information

Required listening if you want facts about markets and economy without any spin. I do wish Leanna Burn would would pick a volume though - she starts each sentence with a shout and ends with a whisper - difficult to listen to on headphones.
