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.

It’s Not Sexy - Aging Issues in Iowa - Out to Lunch with John Hale

For decades there has been lots and lots of talk about aging but very little action. Iowa is one of the states with the largest "old-old" population in the nation. We have over half a million people over the age of 65 more on the way. Yet, according to our guest, John Hale of the Hale Group, Iowa is failing to plan for the future. Who is going to care for older Iowans? How do we deal with transportation, housing, nutrition, care giving? Is immagration a solution or a band-aid? Meanwhile the legislature talks a big game but leadership, according to John, is lacking. Click through as we go Out to Lunch at Vino 209.
