News is that construction on new houses and apartment complexes took a dip in April. Why aren’t young people buying homes like they used to? Hint: It’s not because of avocado toast purchases. We’ll look at the structural changes that are happening within our economy. Afterwards, we’ll explore how Target is trying to pull itself out of a slump, which includes abandoning some of its futuristic innovations, and talk about a new bipartisan bill in Congress that aims to help people who cycle in and out of the hospital.
