Great to be back with you following a day off for President's Day as we joined the markets and other financial folks by kicking back a bit. Coming up today we start things off with a story about a central bank cutting it's prime rate. No, not in the U.S. but in China and why the second largest economy on the planet did so. Also today, for the interview, you'll meet David Swartz from Swartz and Associates who specialize in helping commercial property owners appeal their assessments and...win. Finally, if you want to reach us on social media and if you're on Threads you can find us @Insight_On_Business. And you can hook up with us all day on Twitter or "X" @IOB_NewsHour and on Instagram. Facebook? Sure were there too. Here's what we've got for you today:
- China cuts it's prime lending rate and why;
- Big news from the world of credit cards;
- Hard times? Recession? Nope say U.S. casinos;
- Small business owners and their concerns for 2024;
- Some E-15 news from corn producing states;

- Retirements are kicking up and why that matters.
For the interview you'll meet David Swartz who, along with his brother, operates Swartz and Associates.
