Episode Teaser Image 
Episode Description 
Microsoft hired a CEO today, after 6 months debating: Insider or outsider? It’s a decision that many companies wrestle with, raising questions of expense, innovation, familiarity and more. Next, the markets have now fallen about 8 percent, and we take a look at the concept of "correction." What does it take to make a "correction" officially? Plus, how the Affordable Care Act could shrink the workforce. The Congressional Budget Office's newest numbers suggest folks will stop working, while others will work fewer hours. And finally, tech companies are signing on to President Obama’s push to connect all school children to the internet, offering $750 million in hardware, software and internet access. What do these companies stand to gain?
