Welcome back! While it’s safe to say there will be no rail strike…tomorrow we’re not yet out of the woods. Wall Street fell today but you folks are still buying stuff…surprising retail sales numbers are in the news. Those stories and more in this edition of Insight on Business – News Headlines for Thursday the 15th day of September…thanks for being here. Also, remember that you can hook up with us all day on Twitter @IOB_NewsHour and on Instagram. Here's what we've got for you today:
- The railroad strike: We're still not out of the woods;
- The markets fell again today as did oil;
- Some surprising retail sales numbers;
- Thursday Night Football with a twist;
- Verizon is losing customers and why;
- The Wall Street Report;
- Might there be a "White Collar" recession?
Those stories and something "hyper-local" as I visit with Tyler Granger about the upcoming Windsor Heights, Iowa Book Fair. Why do this on a national news program? Because we thought it's a great idea and something that can be done...anywhere to celebrate local writers. To listen to that conversation with Tyler and Julie Granger click our player below:
