Airing on Tuesday, August 4, 2015: On today’s show, we’ll talk about oil’s new volatility with prices creeping back up after falling to a six month low on Monday. And with CVS’s earnings report on Tuesday, we check on the corporate strategy that has helped CVS shares approach record highs. Plus, nearly ten years ago, New Orleans was inundated by flood waters, after a spectacular failure of the city’s levees. We have the story of a financial institution — itself devastated — that played a key role in the rebuilding.
