The new year is here and we're going to keep the party going for at least another week.

The government is scheduled to release its monthly jobs report this week.  We take a look at what to expect.  We also go in depth into one of the mysteries of the last several years: how come the unemployment rate keeps falling even though job growth has been decidedly ho-hum?

And as always, we'll boogie our way through some of the more out-of-the-way discos on Wall Street.

This week, we've got stories about how Amazon is turning the world into Blade Runner.  We've got robots who might sit with you and help you sort your magazines.  And we've got communist bureaucrats who can't afford yachts like we were expecting them to.
