President Obama announces his nomination for the next White House budget director, Wal-Mart's Sylvia Mathews Burwell. A new analysis by the Tax Policy Center says that the tax bills of the one percent are the highest they've been since 1979. In a new book, author Steve Boggan examines the life of a bank note by following a $10 bill around the U.S. for 30 days. Amy Scott teams up with the Chronicle of Higher Education to find out just what employers want from today's college graduates. And as part of our disappearing jobs series, we talk to shoemaker Raúl Ojeda about what it's like to be one of the last in the business.
