The Business News Headlines 8 November 2022

One thing is for sure, by the end of the day we'll no longer be seeing what has been a raft of negative political ads and no matter where you sit that should be a welcome change.  In the business news headlines we're looking at how the rich and wealthy are throwing lavish parties and drinking $1,000 bottles of wine while most Americans are pinching pennies. Meanwhile how high might grocery prices go?  We have some thoughts. Sure the mid-terms are a big deal but…a report due out on Thursday might be even bigger. It's the Tuesday, November 8th edition of the business news headlines. Also, remember that you can hook up with us all day on Twitter @IOB_NewsHour and on Instagram.  Here's what we've got for you today:
