Plus: Globalization, book club and a bit more about bitcoin.

Globalization is in the headlines, but what does it mean for our economy? Marketplace’s Scott Tong explains it to us. We answer your questions about globalism, nationalism and the companies that have to navigate between these rocky shoals. Plus, we picked our next Make Me Smart book! You’ve got about a month to read it. Finally, you have questions and answers about bitcoin and cryptocurrency.
