First, Pete Davis, former Hill Staffer, financial expert, and Godfather of congressional computer economic modeling, comes on to talk about the op-ed he recently authored with Jim Carter.

We're back after a down week (due to Andrew being under the weather and big meetings early on), and we're shifting gears for Friday.
