A person carries an American flag while marching in favor of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in front of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Next week, the Supreme Court will decide the fate of President Barack Obama’s signature piece of legislation, the Affordable Care Act, which attempts to reorganize one fifth of the U.S. economy.

The court’s decision could have come earlier, and it's become a bit of a nail-biter. Will the justices decide the law is constitutional, will it only allow certain parts to stand or will it strike down the ACA completely? Rana Foroohar with Time and Joe Nocera with The New York Times discuss what the Supreme Court's upcoming decision and what other recent court decisions mean for American business.

Also, when a CEO throws a subordinate under the bus, what does it say about his personality and character? Does a decisive management style require business leaders to be unsympathetic and cold?

Finally, Rana and Joe run down what they’re watching to make news in the weeks ahead.
