Marketplace host Kai Ryssdal talks with Leigh Gallagher of Fortune and Felix Salmon of Fusion about this week’s business and economic news. This week, they talked about China’s GDP, Brexit and U.S. inflation rates — and how all of these factor into evaluating the world’s economy at large. Also, possible mergers in tech, and how U.S. companies might be feeling about this tumultuous election season.

Correction (Oct. 21, 2016): A previous version of this story misstated Felix Salmon’s job.
