(U.S. Edition) We start off in Australia, where Wednesday was a red-letter day for the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a trade deal that doesn’t include the United States. Meanwhile, General Motors is slated to report its summer numbers, and it’s placing a big bet on electric cars to help drive its future. To that end, GM called for a zero-emission vehicle program for the U.S. Then, following our conversation with Trumponomics guru Stephen Moore, we head back to tax reform and get perspective from Felicia Wong, CEO of the liberal-leaning Roosevelt Institute, which has found in a bipartisan survey that many people aren’t fans of what’s happened to the tax system. Today's show is sponsored by American Express (americanexpress.com/seebusinessdifferently), Michigan Economic Development Corporation (planetm.com) and PayPal (paypal.com). (10/31/2018)
