The Business News Headlines and More 5 August 2019
It was not a pretty sight today on Wall Street as the Dow sank by over 800 points. Why? You might call it trade by twitter? Here's what we're talking about today, Monday the 5th of August:
China and the dollar...theirs, and maybe ours;
There was one stock sector that was up today...can you guess?
Amazon putting pressure on its merchants to lower prices;
A big bank eyes profits and cuts 4,000 jobs;
The "hot job market" that may not be so...hot;
Numbers and the Governor of Iowa;
Sunday delivery coming but with lower wages;
Newspaper news...Gannett is purchased.
Those stories plus a hyper-local conversation about the small community of Adel, Iowa and it's upcoming Sweet Corn Festival. My guest is the executive director of the Adel Area Partners Chamber, Deb Bengston. Here is that link.
