First up, we’ll talk about how the lifting of sanctions on Iran could affect the global oil market. Next: the apparel industry is looking to Africa as its next manufacturing base for cheap clothing. Ethiopian wages are one third those in Bangladesh. All that needs to happen is to persuade manufacturers to build factories there, install an infrastructure, train a workforce, and solve shipping challenges. Plus, we’ll talk about the New Horizons probe and its date with dwarf planet Pluto.
