Joining us to talk about the week’s business and economic news are Linette Lopez from Business Insider and John Carney from the Wall Street Journal. This week, they discuss “full employment,” the addition of 151,000 jobs to the U.S. labor market and whether a tax bill of $14.5 billion for Apple will affect policy surrounding corporate tax reform.
