On this week´s show we talk to John Chambers,Chairman of the Sovereign Debt Committee at Standard & Poor´s. The calendar is crowded this week, with the highlight being the March 15-16 FOMC meeting. We also get a handful of important economic data: Retail sales, the producer price index (PPI), business inventories, the consumer price index (CPI), housing starts, industrial production, the Philadelphia Fed manufacturing survey, the Job Openings and Labor Market Turnover Survey (JOLTS), and University of Michigan consumer sentiment. We expect the Fed will leave the door open for rate hikes later this year even though this week’s batch of economic data is likely to be on the softer side. Additionally, inflation is expected to show more moderate readings than it did last month.
