The Business News Headlines 10 January 2022

Welcome back to another week of the business news headlines and stick around and click through for an interesting conversation about the world of print magazines. Think print is dead?  Not so fast. But, first the news and this is what we've got for you:

  • Two words troubled Wall Street;
  • Billions being spent to enlarge ports;
  • He says he uses a Tesla to mine for crypto;
  • Who's winning? Hybrids or EV's? We'll tell;
  • Some really HOT & SPICY food news;
  • The Wall Street Report;
  • The IRS has just warned us...

How many news stories have you heard or seen that tells us print is dying...or is dead? Plenty...right? But there are outliers especially if that print publication has a niche that consumers want. That is the story behind Little Village a magazine that's been around for twenty years in the Iowa City/Cedar Rapids, Iowa area and is now expanding into the Des Moines market. With me is publisher Genevieve Trainor and advertiser/entrepreneur Mike Draper from RayGun. To listen just click HERE!
