  • Inflation may be up, but there's more to consider about the health of the economy

    We look at the increase in the cost of living over the last year, according to new government data, and put it in the context of other numbers — jobs, the stock market — to help us take a more comprehensive look at how the national economy is actually doing.

  • Two takes on the dispute over Wisconsin's legislative maps

    The courts will likely have to decide on the boundaries of Wisconsin’s legislative districts for the next decade. We get two takes on the proposals from Gov. Tony Evers’ maps commission and from Republican state lawmakers, and how the redistricting process may play out.
