And The Economic News Just Keeps Getting Worse

There was more bad economic news this week. Unemployment numbers climbed to 8.1 percent — the highest in a quarter of a century. Retail sales orders are down. The stock market dipped below 7,000 — the first time in a decade.

Host Scott Simon is joined by NPR political analyst Juan Williams to talk about the week's economic news.
