As retail chains prepare to report results, we’ll chat with Julia Coronado from Macropolicy Perspectives about the state of the industry. Job prospects in this sector are looking dim as Amazon rises in power. Afterwards, we’ll look at how Trump is doing with filling government positions, and then talk about Mexico’s push to legalize marijuana.
