(U.S. Edition) With Saudi officials now saying that journalist Jamal Khashoggi did indeed perish at the Saudi consulate in Turkey, the kingdom's move to diversify its economy away from oil could be hindered, as foreign investors are rethinking their ties to the state. Meanwhile, there's more gloomy news from the toy industry as Hasbro has experiences a 12 percent drop in revenue in a year. What could be coming for toy retail in the future? Then we take a deeper dive into the ethics of artificial intelligence with John Havens of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, which has developed a new ethics certification process for AI. Today's show has been sponsored by GAIN Capital Group (gaincapital.com), Michigan Economic Development Corporation (planetm.com) and PayPal (paypal.com). (10/22/2018)
