Claudia Sahm didn't coin the "Sahm Rule", but she has taken on the responsibility that comes with having an economics rule and recession indicator named after her. The macroeconomist who worked at the Federal Reserve and the White House Council of Economic Advisers joins The Express with her forecast for the U.S. economy, including what could go very right, and what could go very wrong. Plus, divergences across the stock market make this recent run to all time highs even more interesting.
