(U.S. Edition) We have more on relations between the U.S. and China during the trade war. There have been reports that President Trump is taking steps to move along negotiations, while at the same time pledging to prosecute Chinese companies for stealing intellectual property. On Thursday, the Justice Department indicted former employees of a microchip maker and other companies for allegedly handing over trade secrets to the Chinese. Then we discuss jobs, as Friday marks the release of the October employment report. Marketplace’s Andy Uhler helps break it down. Also, Marketplace Tech host Molly Wood drops in to talk about how officials are trying to keep the American voting system free of hackers and other denizens and devices of e-criminality. Today’s show is sponsored by GAIN Capital Group (gaincapital.com), Gobble (gobble.comand Michigan Economic Development Corporation (planetm.com). (11/02/2018)
