12/15/17: Net neutrality, bitcoins and our autonomous future

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 13:02:04 -0600

As technology changes, so do our daily lives — whether it's the places we go on the internet, how we pay for goods or how we get from point A to point B. On this week's show we dive into the future of the internet now that the Federal Communications Commission has rolled back net neutrality, take a look at mental health following disaster and touch on the opioid epidemic. Then, the five questions you always wondered, but were too nervous to ask, about bitcoin. Also, could driverless technology transform how we think about wheelchairs? Plus, Ask A Manager's Alison Green is back with the secrets to navigating the office holiday party, and all the etiquette involved.

From hurricanes to wildfires to earthquakes, we've dealt with a lot in 2017. As communities recover, there's a trail of money behind it all. This week, we give you an hourlong special on the economics of disaster. We head to Puerto Rico to examine life on the ground following Hurricane Maria. We look at the debt situation, the realities of life when the lights stay out and what it takes to bring power back. Plus, Puerto Rico's dairy farmers and a surprising boom in renewable energy. Also, recovery in Texas and how Florida is handling an influx of Puerto Ricans fleeing the damage from Hurricane Maria.

Fri, 10 Nov 2017 17:28:51 -0600

How does owing money change the way we act and feel? On this episode we look at the connection between debt and mental health, how sexual harassment claims are changing the way investors choose stocks, and the five things you should ask any financial planner.

10/20/2017: Money, mouths and method acting

Fri, 20 Oct 2017 12:39:28 -0500

Do you put your money where your mouth is? That's the question we're digging into this week. As businesses embrace activism and causes, does it actually help? Or is promoting a cause just a way for a company to boost its reputation? Plus, a look at the money around actual mouths — and how Netflix could partially be to blame for the decline of suburban restaurant chains like TGI Fridays and Applebee's. Also, we speak with a former Social Security Administration commissioner about the Americans stuck on waiting lists for hearings to receive disability benefits.

09/15/17: Outer space, identity theft and lots of bubbles

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 17:23:16 -0500

In the wake of NASA's most recent mission to Saturn, we're heading out of this world. Spaceships run on several things: fuel, physics and cash. But that last category accounts for a lot of things, like people, equipment, maintenance and time. What’s the breakdown? And what’s the value of the images and info gathered in space? Can we measure it? And, we take a look at why our Social Security numbers are tied to everything and what happens when those nine digits fall into the wrong hands. Plus, when it comes to disasters, should we invest in disaster preparedness or disaster relief? Oh, and we have a special appearance by a fizzy beverage that's making a comeback.

09/01/2017: Harvey and globalization

Sun, 03 Sep 2017 11:56:00 -0500

We're handing off the show to Scott Tong and Sarah Gardner for their special coverage of globalization. The idea of more open, global trade has been sold as necessary for economic success. Despite that, we hear calls to “build a wall” and countries like the U.K. make moves to step back from global trading partners. How’d we get here? And can globalization last? We'll also bring you our initial coverage or Hurricane Harvey with stories of what it's like to have water creeping up to your door and where your donated dollar really goes.
