In the wake of Friday's poor job figures, the stock market is falling and the campaigns are pointing fingers. Motoko Rich, National Economics Reporter for our partner the New York Times, and Todd Zwillich, Washington correspondent for The Takeaway, discuss what's in store for the week ahead. On the list: several new reports on economic indices, the parties' spin on last week's bad news, the falling stock market, the fate of Wisconsin's Governor Scott Walker, and presidential fundraising efforts in New York City.

Well, it's difficult to be civil when one thinks about American reality.
The most important aspects of it are ... unseen, untouched, unspoken etc.
Unemployment is high, but many people collapse from exhaustion. Unemployment is high, but how many people are familiar with the concept "vacations?" Unemployment is high, but mothers are forced to leave a week old babies to go ... you guess it to work. That's good that they hear all the time how pro family this nation is.
Madness, madness, madness .... (there should be many more "madnesses," but I am too lazy to type)
