Hosted by Kai Ryssdal, our flagship program is all about providing context on the economic news of the day. Through stories, conversations and newsworthy numbers, we help listeners understand the economic world around them.
For a lot of retailers, especially restaurants, afternoons are tough. That’s why happy hour exists. Starbucks beat earnings expectations in part because it’s been able to bring more shoppers in during the afternoon. Today, we look at how coffee shops and other retailers are fighting through the “dead zone.” Plus: Warren Buffet gets out of newspapers, the latest from the Fed meeting, and how one man is finding shelter amid LA’s homelessness crisis.
