How the Deck Is Stacked: Jobs, the Economy, and the Election

Setup

As the 2016 presidential election approaches, the economy is a tale of two realities. On one hand, employment numbers, housing prices, and corporate profits have rebounded substantially since President Obama took office nearly eight years ago at the height of the financial crisis. At the same time, the nature of work is shifting, leaving many behind, long term unemployment persists, and the gap between the wealthy and everyone else continues to grow. Join Marketplace’s Kai Ryssdal and a panel of experts for a look at the macroeconomy and how it’s driving the choices Americans make on the eve of the 2016 election. Underwritten by EY
