Leigh Gallagher of Fortune and Felix Salmon of Fusion join Kai Ryssdal to discuss the week's business and economic news. This week, they debate whether the new administration will work towards heavily slowing down Congress, if President-elect Trump really is a "tweet risk" and what might be the best thing to ask Steven Mnuchin at his congressional hearing.

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
