President-elect Trump's one-off deal making with the likes of Carrier, Ford, and SoftBank have raised concerns about crony capitalism. The Ethics Professors tackle that issue, and discuss whether U.S. finger-wagging over Russia's alleged meddling in November's election is hypocritical. And, is it okay to return or re-gift that ugly sweater you got for Christmas? Also, Brian McTavish presents the latest Weekend To-Do List.
