The news this morning is that the U.S. economy didn’t shrink during the winter as statisticians initially told us. More on that. Plus, we’ll talk about Egyptian government’s efforts to prop up the handicraft manufacturing industry that has been largely taken over by goods made in China.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.
