The Business News Headlines 13 April 2022

Thanks for coming by again today. It's been a busy news day from profits to the markets and make sure you click ahead for the conversation about the electrical grid in the State of Iowa. Some amazing facts that impact business recruitment and retention. But first the business news headlines:

  • Who is really responsible for high fuel prices;
  • Amazon has a new name for a streaming service;
  • And...you'll be able to hear why;
  • Yesterday it was Honda; today it's Toyota and EV's;
  • Corporate profits are higher than...ever in history;
  • Are those profits tied to...record inflation?
  • The Wall Street Report;
  • Women and "Office Housework".  What?

For the interview you'll meet Bob Rafferty from the group, Iowa Business for Clean Energy. The conversation centers on the electric grid in the Hawkeye State plus why some cities pay as much as 50% more for electricity than others, what about clean energy and how do we get there? The bottom line is, as he says, nothing will be done for our antique system until business gets involved. So, there is a special event hosted by his group on April 28th and business is invited. To listen to that conversation click here.
