On today’s show, we’ll talk about investors’ flight from the low — and negative — yields of Asia and Europe; Nordstrom’s partnership with the Tony Awards to sell accessories viewers see on the red carpet; and Airbnb’s plans to revamp its service so that hosts don’t discriminate customers based on race.

Correction: A previous version of this article misstated the types of items Nordstrom would sell. The text has been corrected.
