On today’s show, we’ll talk about readjusting a jobs prediction made a week ago; VW offering an apology; the chances that oil prices will continue to increase; and we’ll take a look at how businesses in Bastrop, Texas, recovered from the worst wildfire in the state’s history.

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