The Federal Reserve and global central banks are remaking the world's economy in an effort to save it, but have created something of a monster.

Attorney General Barr may be fired or resign, as President Trump seethes about Barr's statement this week that no widespread voter fraud has been found.

Why it matters: It's exceedingly rare for the head of the U.S. intelligence community to make public accusations about a rival power.
