Airing on Thursday, May 14, 2015: First up, more on the recommendation by an independent panel set up by the British government that the global pharmaceutical industry should come up with money to jump start research into ways to stop drug-resistant bacteria. And Jeep is entering the luxury SUV competition—along with Maserati, Jaguar and others—as SUV sales roar back, especially luxury SUVs. Plus, Sotheby’s is teaming up with Drake to curate music to pair with an exhibition of works by black artists on view at its New York headquarters. The hope is the auction house will be able to attract a more diverse (and younger) crowd of collectors to but the works.
