Class actions run from big civil rights cases to arguments about pepper. Are they noble, or silly?
 
That's the name of Ken Langone's new book. He co-founded The Home Depot, and he's been around this economy for a while. We'll unpack that premise, but first we'll talk NAFTA renegotiations.

When I looked at the list of upcoming guests for this month and I saw that we had someone who ran a trampoline business I said, “Trampoline?”It turns out this is a story of a guy who created something in the real world that works like businesses have always worked, except much bigger. And that’s why my team wanted me to interview him. They said ...…

Last year, I was invited to something called Fireside Conf, a retreat with no Internet, no distractions for entrepreneurs.

They never sent me the recording and I thought it was because my questions were rude and way too personal.Well, they’ve just given me a copy and ...…
 
President Donald Trump announced today he's going to meet Kim Jong Un on June 12 in Singapore. There are a whole lot of variables in this equation: What's motivating who to do what? One thing that might have driven North Korea to the negotiating table is its economy. It had been growing amid sanctions, but now? We'll talk about it. Then, anothe ...…
 
Today on the show: A chicken index, some Wall Street investors, and an unlikely whistle-blower.

California is way more than Hollywood. Today on the show, we look at what else is going on in this powerhouse state economy.
 
The labor market, to be specific. It's been out of whack for a while, and this morning's jobs report only got stranger. Last month saw 3.9 percent unemployment, the lowest in 18 years.

Whitney Johnson, an executive coach, argues that on-the-job learning is the key to keeping people motivated.

Johnson is the author o ...…
 
The big corporate story du jour is T-Mobile and Sprint, but we're going to focus on something specific the two wireless companies said when they announced a proposed merger: that the combined company would be able to move faster on fifth-generation wireless technology than anyone else — specifically the Chinese. Will that help win over governme ...…

So how does a guy who says he has no attachment to money make so much money? Robert Gryn is the founder of Codewise, which specializes in ...…

When a PR agency contacted me and said, “Hey, Andrew, do you want to interview the author of a new startup book?” I said, “No.” To be honest, I didn’t even look at.

The big corporate headline of the day is an industrial story, a commodities story, a global trade story and a good ol' wow-that's-an-interesting-move story.

The two European leaders are pushing the same agenda, but they're going to be ...…
 
Quick: Are rising interest rates good or bad? What about oil prices? Home prices? It's kind of a trick question.

Then: If you're talking about wages, it's worth mentioning that some of the biggest companies in this country ...…
 
Amanda Goodall, a senior lecturer at Cass Business School in London, argues that the best leaders are technical experts, not general managers.

We begin today with a number, a relatively simple number that brings with it meaning for everybody in this economy who has debt: 3 percent. That's the interest rate that the government's 10-year Treasury note is getting really close to, for the first time since January 2014. In isolation, it's not a huge deal, but in the context of the low-rate ...…

Wells Fargo will pay the federal government a billion dollars to settle charges of misconduct in its car and home loans. That's a lot, but only a small percentage of the banks' recent profits.

American consumers can be a fickle bunch, and companies spend billions to make that fickleness break their way as best they can — especially in a crisis.

It was supposed to be Tax Day in America, but thanks to computer issues at the IRS, everyone gets another day to file.

We'll follow the money. But ...…
