Yesterday on This Week in Business, Jon Hurst, president of the Retailers Association of Massachusetts, joined hosts Paul Guzzi and Mike Nikitas to discuss holiday retail sales. Strong Black Friday sales and a historic Cyber Monday helped generate stronger than expected November sales.

He also discussed his thoughts on controlling escalating health care costs, and gave his perspective on the recent sale of Caritas Christi.

On the Business Beat, NECN business reporter Peter Howe talks about the US employment situation, an announcement by State Street to cut 400 jobs in Massachusetts, the possible end of jobless benefits for 60,000 Bay State residents, a WikiLeaks threat, and GM's new electic car.
