The Federal Reserve is raising interest rates again to curb inflation; it’s the smallest hike since March.

Along with the rate hike, Fed Chair Jerome Powell gives strong rhetoric in his speech, but are the markets convinced? We talk to an analyst.

More than 1,000 people have pleaded guilty or been convicted of COVID relief fraud. Lawmakers are trying to find out where billions of taxpayer dollars went, and what could have been done to avoid this.

Farmers visit Capitol Hill to warn about a potential corn catastrophe. Many could go out of business if Mexico bans all genetically-modified corn imports from America.

Lawmakers are proposing more protections for airline passengers—just a month after thousands of flights were canceled over the holidays.
