Today on The Indicator, we play Overrated, Underrated — a game that we're borrowing from our friend Tyler Cowen, economist and host of the podcast Conversations with Tyler. The rules are simple: we invite a guest on the show and grill them on a host of topics — ranging from economics to pop culture — asking them to say whether each is overrated, underrated, or appropriately rated. Today's guest of honor: Jill Schlesinger, CBS business analyst and author of The Dumb Things Smart People Do With Their Money.

Music: "Black Waxploitation"
