What happens when you hand struggling people money? A study on Finland's universal basic income experiment concludes that not much, for the economy at least. We take a look at the mysteriously falling benchmark interest rate. America's liquefied natural gas industry is growing, but are China's tariffs on LNG actually hurting it as some predicted? Plus, Johnson & Johnson becomes the first company to put the prices of its products — drugs in this case — in its TV ads.

Today's show is sponsored by Kronos  and Indeed.
