Joining us to talk about the week’s business and economic news are Nela Richardson of Redfin and Sudeep Reddy of the Wall Street Journal. This week, they discuss the Census Bureau report that household income jumped, the possibility of the Fed raising interest rates and President Barack Obama’s search for support on the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

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