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.
