This week, we're traveling from Europe to the U.S., taking a tour of monetary policy.

The Fed is set to announce its interest rate decision this week.  At this point, a rate hike is almost a foregone conclusion.  But we take a look at what's in store down the road for interest rates.  We also look back at last week's monetary policy decision out of Europe.  The European Central Bank surprised markets with an extended easy money plan.

And as always, we travel to some of the more out of the way spots on Wall Street.

We try to broker a wrestling match between the future first daughter of the country and the current first daughter of the WWE.  We look at the ways a student athlete is NOT like an employee, at least in the opinion of a federal court.  We also look at Amazon's plan to sell produce without checkout lines.

And we celebrate Hanukkah with some donut whoppers from Burger King.
