Insight On Business the News Hour

The Business News Headlines - 15 October 2018

Each weekday about 5pm Central we post up the Business News Headlines...often with some commentary. Today it was Sears that stole much of the days business news:

  • Sears files for Chapter 11 - What happened, how might this end and where are the most stores closing;
  • What might happen to oil prices if the U.S.  puts sanctions on you know who...
  • Gold is coming back. Can the Gold Guys be far behind?
  • Well, looks like the U.S. has lost lots of money...but we told you that would happen.
  • What happened on Wall Street and why...we've got the story.

Also today for The Interview we've got Congressman John K. Delaney (D-MD) the first announced Democratic candidate for president in 2020. We think you'll enjoy this conversation and find his story compelling.

Because it's Monday we've got Laura Kinnard in from Drake University and DMBizMixer talking networking events, education and we get off on a discussion about trade shows...

Thanks for clicking through.

Running for President Meet Congressman John K. Delaney

He is the first Democratic candidate to announce a run for president in 2020. Congressman John K. Delaney (D-MD) has been in Iowa a number of times. On his most recent visit he cut out some time to talk with us about his candidacy, his story, his business world and his passion to build unity. Why is that important? In his words, "So we can actually get things done to benefit the American people."  Have a listen...he makes a strong case.
