First up on today’s show, we’re talking about Russia, where there’s news of recession. Plus, in the coming hours, we’ll hear from the car and truck companies about their sales last month. Many expect the holidays to come early for automakers, with the economy up and gas prices down. And yesterday, the gods (small “g”) proclaimed we were supposed to buy things on the internet for Cyber Monday. Today, Giving Tuesday, for charity. Picking up this theme, let’s turn to a leading light of online social media who argues that in the near future, companies will spend most of their advertising money on … philanthropy. We talk with Biz Stone, co-founder of Twitter and now CEO of Jelly.
