This week, we should be talking about the Federal Reserve.  After all, policy makers are meeting to make their next interest rate decision.

Except this time around, there's little doubt about what the Fed is going to do.  Rates are widely expected to hold steady.

But we talk about the Fed anyway, looking ahead beyond this meeting to what might be in store later in the year.

This week's Fed meeting might be a sure thing, but that's not the case with the jobs report due out on Friday.  We review the state of the labor market.

And as always, we'll hitch a ride with some of the stranger drivers on Wall Street's highway.

We've got Lyft expanding, Uber apologizing and sea lice affecting the price of salmon.  We've also got cows eating skittles and one big-name company looking to make the Super Bowl a national holiday.
