We talk about this week’s economic and business news with Ana Swanson from the New York Times and Sudeep Reddy from Politico. Unemployment rates are down to 3.9 percent, the lowest in at least a decade, so we talk about what that means amid disappointing wage growth. Then we talk about the White House trade delegation’s “frank discussions” with Beijing. Is that code for “things went terribly”? The United States asked for a lot, including a $200 billion reduction in the trade deficit. We break it down.
