Thank you for listening to the 7th episode of "This Week's Economy,” where I briefly share my insights every Friday morning on key economic and policy news at the U.S. and state levels.

2) States: Texas and Louisiana employment reports, fact and fiction, and Texas House passes corporate welfare bill in HB 5, and;
3) Other: Bills circulating on restricting social media, the value of the U.S. dollar under threat, and more.
