This week, with the release the fifth installment in the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise, we're climbing into the crow’s nest and scouring the horizon for threats that could hijack the economy.

First, we're going to get a new job report this week.  The results have been spotty recently.  After a run of good reports, the labor market took on some water in March.  It bobbed back up in April, though, and we'll take a look at the labor market ahead of the new numbers.  

We’ll also check in on the Fed.  The central bank is set to announce its next rate decision in a couple weeks.  We detail provide an early preview of the meeting.

And as always, we'll take on crew in some of Wall Street's more eclectic ports...

We have a billionaire who is NOT running for president.  Even though he's got a political platform to tell you about.  We've got the great Amazon banana give away.  We've got underpaid Uber drivers and facial recognition baggage drops.  And we have a real tongue-twister of a logo fight.
