First up, we look how the global drop in share prices Monday morning — including an early, brief 1,000-point fall for the Dow — could affect the feds plans to raise interest rates. Then, as cars do more by themselves, with further innovation on the horizon, we look at the state of cyber-security on the road.

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