Black Friday, Bonuses, & Bitcoin
On a Black Friday unlike any other, CNBC’s Bertha Coombs reports on the scene outside a New Jersey mall. Former Saks CEO Steve Sadove and former Walmart U.S. CEO Bill Simon unpack what 2020’s retail landscape means for shopping seasons to come. Vanity Fair’s Bethany McLean and The NYT’s Kate Kelly discuss what Wall Streeters can expect--or not expect--from their bonuses this year; amid the country’s health, political, and economic environment, some firms may offer a holiday payout, and others may hold out. Bitcoin’s weathered a wild ride this week, topping off an impressive 9 months. Andrew Ross Sorkin, Becky Quick, and Steve Liesman consider where cryptocurrency has been, where it’s headed, and what it’ll do to our global financial system. Plus, CNBC’s Contessa Brewer brings some pent up seasonal cheer from a neighborhood already decorated for the holiday season.
