It's been a nightmare on Wall Street now for three days and the inflation numbers today really drove the markets down. Also today we've got an interesting conversation about the world of air guitar competition. No, really! And if you think this is too weird know that ESPN will, this summer, air the competition. You'll meet The Flying Finn in just a bit. In the news:
- Consumer prices shot up in April;
- The impact on Wall Street;
- Gasoline hording and rising prices;
- Hertz accepted a buy-out and it's a story;
- These brick and mortar stores are surging;
- The Wall Street Report;
- Rethinking "low skilled workers".
Over the years we've interviewed hundreds of people from entrepreneurs and their startups to political folks and seasoned business people. This conversation is a...first. Here you will meet an international star from the world of air guitar competition. You read that correctly. Andrew Finn is "The Flying Finn". Andrew has been performing for 16 years and recently on the international stage in (of course) Finland! And, in case you think this is a "one off", ESPN is slated to showcase the world of air guitar competition this summer. Here is a link to a video from his competition in Finland. I sat down with Andrew to learn more and it's quite the story.
Thanks for listening.
