Joining us to talk about the week’s business and economic news are Catherine Rampell from the Washington Post and Felix Salmon from Fusion. The big topic this week: what’s the state of Black Friday in 2015, and should retailers be concerned? Plus, we look at Pfizer’s latest attempt at a corporate inversion.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.
