On this week’s edition of The Breakdown Weekly Recap, NLW argues the big story of the week was actually a set of smaller stories that preview the faultlines and economic debates likely to absorb us in the coming months.

These include:

  • The Big Tech vs. The World fight
  • The beginning of coronavirus lawsuits
  • Back to school
  • Jobless claims getting worse
  • Kodak and reshoring
