Episode Description

This week on Engage, we cover it all for you. First, we have returning guest Milton Ezrati from Lord Abbett to cover what's happening at the Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank, and the Bank of England. Next, we'll have on Capital Alpha's Loren Smith to review what Congress will do when it returns from vacation in September, how the US Midterm elections are shaping up, and what are the top 5 things Republicans will do if they take back both houses of Congress. Then, we'll take a turn towards how one nonprofit is doing great things in Chicago. Dr. George Wilson from Circle Urban joins us to discuss their work and how they help solve some big issues in society by engaging 1:1 with families in need. Of course, I'll give my final thoughts on how all of this spins together.
