Logan is in theaters now.  As a result, we've decided to pay homage to serious-minded X-men warriors.  So we're looking at some of the superheroes of finance: economists and monetary policy makers...

This week will see the release of the government's monthly employment data.  We're coming off a big report for January.  The data will show if the economy was able to follow up with more big job gains in February.

The report will also be important in predicting how the next interest rate decision is going to go.  The Fed is set to make an announcement in a couple weeks and the signs have changed direction over the past month or so.  We let you know how things are looking now and what the chances are for a rate hike in the near future.

And as always, we investigate some of the more heavily mutated genes on Wall Street's chromosomes.

We've got some guy at Amazon shutting down a big part of the Internet with a whoopsy typo.  We've got the return of female .  We'll tell you the best place to live to lead a really long life, at least if you can make it to 2030.  And we'll give a few more arguments in the ongoing debate about what to do in a world about to be run by robots.
