From Wall Street to Main Street to Washington, everyone is talking about inflation, which is having a real-life impact on all of our wallets. CNBC’s Kristina Partsinevelos reports on the increasing cost of daily life. Meanwhile, the billionaires in the ProPublica report, on the shocking low taxes paid by the wealthiest individuals, didn’t use complicated strategies to shrink their tax bills. For the most part, they used plain, vanilla deductions. CNBC’s Robert Frank discusses why any attempt to reform the system won’t be easy. Plus, It’s been a year since corporate America pledged to focus on diversity and make institutional changes. A recent analysis shows some progress is being made in boardrooms, though the level of Black directors on corporate boards remains low. Sherrilyn Ifill, president and director-counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, discussed what she would like to see from corporate America when it comes to speaking out about diversity, equity and inclusion.
