Let's Do The Numbers

The monthly jobs report is due out today, and Bloomberg Businessweek’s Peter Coy is on hand to explain what the numbers say about the economy and what they mean politically for President Obama and for the GOP field. Then: the privacy issues around the Dharun Ravi case; Benjamin Barber of the policy center Demos on the relevance of Rousseau’s political ideas today; and the meaning of the Bible’s book of Revelations and its apocalyptic imagery. Plus: Graham Rayman of The Village Voice returns with an update on the NYPD tapes investigation; and two equestrians discuss their dreams of competing in the Olympics and Paralympics, respectively.
