Insight On Business the News Hour

Business News Headlines 18 September 2018

What happened while you were working? Here are some of the top business news headlines and a look at what happened on Wall Street and why! Today:

  • China worries? Not so much;
  • New TV ads for Papa John's but guess who is missing;
  • This pot company may soon have a market value of $1 billion;
  • Talking drugs...a drug maker sued in court for bribing physicians for the drug...;
  • What happened on Wall Street and why.

Those stories plus a conversation with AARP-Iowa volunteer Don Corrigan about Complete Streets a proposal set to be voted on by the Des Moines City Council. So...why in the heck is AARP-Iowa involved?  We asked.

Also today we talk with Maureen Berger about something called Outcome Driven Sales...we are all selling something but in this program from Tero International we make sure it's a "win-win" for buyer and seller.

The Des Moines River Project - Eyes of Experience

Here we spend some time with Mat Swift...a Georgia native who was invited to come to Des Moines by the Greater Des Moines Partnership....why? Mat and many more individuals in Columbus, Georgia were responsible for taking a river that ran through their downtown and creating the nation’s largest man-made water feature in the nation.  Plus the project has produced millions in economic development and created a place where people really want to live...and work. Meet Mat and what could be the future of downtown Des Moines.

Immigration and the Economy

Every day we hear about the lack of talent to fill thousands of jobs across the country. Here we sit down with Kate Brick and Richard Andre from the non-partisan New American Economy and talk about the issue and a report just released that points to the need of a new pool of workers in not only the Des Moines Metro but across Iowa. Case in point, Iowa is currently home to more than 160,000 immigrants—a population larger than the city of Cedar Rapids. Between 2010 and 2016, Iowa’s foreign-born population grew by more than 15.2 percent an important statistic given the low birth rate in the state.  In addition we talk about the economic impact that can be attained...or missed.
