On today’s show, we’ll talk about the Federal Reserve’s push for banks to rein in on activities involving physical commodities; look at the possibility of an interest rate hike; how the rise in delivery service apps is affecting restaurants; and progress Google is making with computer-generated speech. 

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