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.
Facebook is going to take over the top of newsfeeds and try to raise money for fighting Ebola. We explore the potential value of Facebook as a fundraiser, and just how much an ad or promotion before so many eyes is worth. Plus, Microsoft is giving away a mobile version of Office 365 for free on Apple and Android devices. We look at why this is a strategic shift for Microsoft, and the acknowledgement that increasing users of MS products is a better way forward than charging those users for software.
