On today’s Macrocast, Ylan, John, and Brendan are joined by a special guest: Jon Hilsenrath. Jon covered economics and finance at the Wall Street Journal from 1997 until this spring. He was also a Pulitzer finalist in 2009 for coverage of the financial crisis, and most recently, the author of “Yellen: The Trailblazing Economist Who Navigated an Era of Upheaval,” which examines the major financial crises of the 21st century through the lens of Janet Yellen’s career and life.
The group engages in a wide-ranging discussion on all things rate hikes, the real estate market, and the reputations and legacies of Jay Powell and Janet Yellen.
