    Facing Off Inflation; The Next Variant; Buckling Up for Booze

    Thanks to the Fed’s emergency stimulus measures, the U.S. economy saw its fastest pace of growth since the 1980s in 2021. To combat the resulting inflation however, the Fed plans to dial those measures back, starting with a rate hike in March.

In the face of yet another Covid-19 variant, Dr. Scott Gottlieb, former FDA commissioner and CNBC contributor, breaks down what experts know about BA.2. Plus, Apple reported its best single quarter revenue ever despite supply challenges, and Southwest Airlines is considering a return of in-flight booze.

Axios reporter Sara Fischer breaks down why Spotify’s optimism about podcast advertising dollars might have justified the decision.

Joe K doesn’t watch Billions?

His tone, attitude & rants are beyond annoying.
I think he’s jealous of you, Andrew!

Get my Squawk hit each day

Just enough Joe, “Beck”, and Sorkin to keep me tuned in to the news of the day and get a few laughs from their casual banter. Look forward to listening on my commute home every day.

Refreshing

Great discourse and variety of opinions. Hosts are each great journalists, and I appreciate their willingness to try to understand views different from their own. They don’t always have all the answers, nor do they pretend to. Others could learn from them.
