This Week's Agenda: Court's New Term; Jobs Report; Tutu Retires

Monday, October 04, 2010

For the first time in 35 years, the Supreme Court begins a new term without Justice John Paul Stevens. We'll finally get to see the first signs of what kind of justice his replacement, Elena Kagan, will be. Maria Hinojosa, host and managing editor of NPR's weekly radio show, Latino USA, and Charlie Herman, econoics editor for The Takeaway and WNYC Radio, look at the significance of this new term for the Supreme Court.

They'll also look at what's ahead this week, as the International Monetary Fund releases its World Economic Outlook, right before their annual IMF-World Bank meeting this weekend. Other agenda items: September's employment report is set for release on Friday; and Nobel Peace Prize winner Archbishop Desmond Tutu turns 79 years old Thursday, and has announced he will withdraw himself from public life.
