PODCAST: A six year bull market

The bull market turns six. Low interest rates as engineered by the Federal Reserve, economic recovery, and yes, innovation itself has fueled, as of today, a six year-long bull runs for the stock market. More on that. Plus, a look at what happens when you let robots make content choices. Proctor and Gamble and Anheuser-Busch are in damage control mode after their automated advertisements appeared to be sponsoring Youtube videos from ISIS. And more on today’s job seekers, especially college students getting set to jump into the market with both feet.
