The markets recovered some of their August sell-off today with the Dow up 249 points, the Nasdaq gaining 106 points and the S&P 500 up by 34 points and change. The reason? Bond yields rose, the government is giving U.S. businesses 90 days to do business with Huawei and President Trump telling everybody that the trade talks are going well. It was enough to boost stocks. In other news:
- Target to launch yet another private brand;
- The problem for restaurants with food delivery companies;
- Major corporate CEO's today stunned the world;
- Stress and the job search.
Those stories plus Laura Kinnard from DMBizMixer joins me to talk about the business of the Iowa State Fair that say 1.1 million visitors attend, some networking events and the Hashies are this week.
