We look ahead to this week of Middle East peace talks, a new jobs report, and auto sales numbers. On Tuesday, President Obama will address the nation from the Oval Office as combat operations in Iraq officially end. On Wednesday, we'll hear about auto sales numbers for August, and on Thursday, a new round of Middle East peace talks will begin. Friday brings the anticipated jobs report from the Labor Department.

We talk with Charlie Herman, economics editor for WNYC Radio and The Takeaway, and Marcus Mabry, assoicate national editor for our partner, The New York Times, about the week ahead.
