This week’s episode provides updates on the economics of the oil price collapse, the resumption of US-Cuba relations, a lost middle class and the economics of Uber car service. We respond to listeners’ questions on the upsurge of union organizing and on a Supreme Court anti-labor ruling. Finally, we analyze why both men and women in the US are leaving the labor force.
