State Of The U.S. Economy; Why Airlines Cancel Flights42:17


Stocks tumbled, then partially rebounded, this week after once-promising trade talks with China stalled. Strong holiday spending has buoyed the economy while other lackluster indicators portend an uncertain future. NPR's Scott Horsley takes a close look at the economy.
