Both the NBA and NHL are facing labor disputes. Banking is still overcoming obstacles. There’s an ongoing debate on whether creating jobs and enforcing environmental regulations counteract each other. And commentator Robert Reich gave his take on how to create economic growth. Here are the songs we played:
