This week, with the release of "Guardians of the Galaxy," we're looking at those men and women who guard our financial galaxy.  That is, the good people at the Federal Reserve.  The Fed held interest rates steady at its last meeting, as expected.  But rates are looking to move up in the near future.  We'll preview what's in store for monetary policy over the next few months.

We'll also reveal the latest jobs data and preview what's coming up on Wall Street, including inflation data and earnings from Disney.

Meanwhile, we'll take our usual tour of some out of the way planets in the financial universe.  We've got a Google co-founder building a secret airship.  We've got a museum dedicated to some of the worst business decisions of all time.  We've got a legendary band suing the namesake of its most famous song.  And we've got a couple of markets that have gotten out of control lately.  Hint: Guacamole might start to get a lot more expensive.
