First up, we’ll talk about the news that last month consumer prices fell the most since the beginning of the Great Recession. More on that. Plus, we’ll talk about an unusual fiscal tradition in India — Today, the government has released a budget specifically for the railroads. And we’ll talk about a memo to pilots of United Airlines that says, in a nutshell, “Let’s focus, people.”
