This morning, we’ll discuss the positive numbers coming from businesses and the markets —the Nasdaq closed above 6,000 for the first time while company earnings reports have been decent across the board. Afterwards, we’ll look at the potential effects of Trump’s proposed corporate tax rate cut on government revenue, and then examine the disparities in per-child spend at schools in different states.
