This week’s episode discusses the labor strikes at Disney, home sales and prices dropping sharply and Nestlé profiting from privatizing water. We also address economist Larry Summers’ comments on taxing soda, provide updates on the costs of the Volkswagen emissions scandal and look at the economic costs of sexual harassment. Finally, we interview Julianna Forlano, a journalist and comedian, about “being funny in times like these.”
