Episode Teaser Image 
Episode Description 
This week, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew will be in Germany to meet with his counterpart, Wolfgang Schäuble. On the adgenda is the U.S. Treasury's criticism that Germany is putting too much emphasis on selling to the rest of Europe, instead of buying more. If you want to get on the Concorde, you have to go to a museum these days. But private-sector supersonic flight may not be competely dead.  A company called Spike Aerospace is working on an  $80 million private jet due in 2018 that promises to fly from New York to London in less than 4 hours. And, we talk to the CEO of a company based in San Francisco that helps Muslim investors around the world chose stocks and other investment vehicles based on which comply with Islamic teaching and which do not.
