TGIF. Debt talks hit an impasse this week. We go over that in our Weekly Wrap, and also discuss market volatility. Speaking of debt, some scholars say it is illegal for the U.S. to default on its obligations — and the president could have the bills paid by executive order.

Here are the other songs we played:
