TikTok is currently one of the most popular apps in the United States, however, there are growing concerns among lawmakers that the app poses a threat to American privacy due to its roots in China. There is a rolling list of Congressional members calling for the United States government to ban the app. House Armed Services Committee Member Congressman Michael Waltz (R-FL) is one of them. He joins the Rundown to discuss how China poses a threat to Americans’ data. He also explains why he believes an invasion of Taiwan is imminent and outlines the devastating consequences it could have on the global economy.
The US economy has undergone massive ups and downs throughout recent years, and through it all, there have been key leaders that have played an influential role in analyzing and working to improve the state of the US economy — one of the most well-known being Janet Yellen. When taking a deeper dive into Yellen’s life, senior writer at The Wall Street Journal Jon Hilsenrath became ‘convinced’ that her story was one many people would be interested in, resulting in the creation of his new book ‘Yellen: The Trailblazing Economist Who Navigated an Era of Upheaval’. Hilsenrath joins the Rundown to discuss what inspired him to write this book and how he was able to examine economic history through the eyes of Yellen and her husband, George Akerlof. He also speaks on the current health of the economy and how interest rate hikes have and will continue to impact the US.
