Weekly Wrap: Trans-Pacific Partnership and jobs report

Joining Molly to talk about the week’s business and economic news are Redfin’s Nela Richardson and Cardiff Garcia of the blog FT Alphaville. The big topics this week: the House votes against Trade Adjustment Assistance  — which could affect U.S. involvement in the Trans-Pacific Partnership — and mixed messages about the economy abound as some people express skepticism over a decent jobs report and good consumer sentiment. 

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
