Today on our show: Consumers win at the register as Proctor & Gamble slashes prices to compete against store brands. But hold your cheers: just as prices for shampoo and sundries drop, the cost of wheat is sky rocketing. We look at how low interest rates affect fixed-income investments. Travel along with Sean Coal to the Canadian “oil sands” for part one in a series on the oil extraction business there. And Kai Ryssdal talks to Richard Florida, the author of “The Great Reset.” Plus, these are the songs we played on the show:
