What happens when Amazon moves in?

SHARE What happens when Amazon moves in?

The wait is over — Amazon finally announced its new headquarter locations. They are near two major metropolitan areas: Crystal City, Virginia, just across the Potomac from Washington, D.C., and Long Island City in Queens, just across the East River from Manhattan. We'll be taking a look at what happens to housing and rent prices when Amazon moves in. Then, later in the show, we'll talk about what’s next for the places that weren’t chosen. Plus: Ten years ago, the government bailed out the auto industry partially on behalf of the workers. A decade on, how have those auto jobs fared? We check in on the bailouts that were meant to save the economy of Toledo, Ohio.
