Technology and Rural America with Congressman Ro Khanna

Last year California Congressman Ro Khanna was in Jefferson Iowa to help launch the Pillar Technology Hub that will open for the public on September 7th. Congressman Khanna was instrumental in gathering some Silicon Valley giants together for this project and he'll be back for the open house event. I thought it might be valuable to look back at this conversation that happened when the project was announced to an overflow crowd.

The Business News Headlines & More 19 August 2019

The markets recovered some of their August sell-off today with the Dow up 249 points, the Nasdaq gaining 106 points and the S&P 500 up by 34 points and change.  The reason? Bond yields rose, the government is giving U.S. businesses 90 days to do business with Huawei and President Trump telling everybody that the trade talks are going well.  It was enough to boost stocks.  In other news:

  • Target to launch yet another private brand;
  • The problem for restaurants with food delivery companies;
  • Major corporate CEO's today stunned the world;
  • Stress and the job search.

Those stories plus Laura Kinnard from DMBizMixer joins me to talk about the business of the Iowa State Fair that say 1.1 million visitors attend, some networking events and the Hashies are this week. You can hear all of that right here.
