Kai Ryssdal often liked to play a game on the show he would call What’s Janet Yellen Thinking? Well, today he took a trip to Washington, D.C., to ask just that. The two chatted about the potential impact of the Build Back Better bill, why Yellen thinks the current inflation is transitory and why raising the federal debt limit is “simply a must.” Also on today’s show, we’ll chat about General Electric’s big breakup announcement, revisit teen employment and hear from a couple in Brooklyn, New York, who are still reeling from the aftermath of Hurricane Ida.
