(U.S. Edition) The trade war between U.S. and China is having a ripple effect in other places, according to a new study. The U.S. wants China to adjust what many are calling unfair trade practices, but bottom lines everywhere are being affected. We talk to Marketplace's Jennifer Pak for more. Then we move to the final week of campaigning before the midterm elections. Candidates have access to an amount of money that dwarfs the amount of funds from 2014. Marketplace's Kimberly Adams fills us in on where that money is pointed. We also talk about the position of town crier in Britain, and how it is being revived to revitalize shopping districts reeling from online competition. Marketplace's Stephen Beard tells us more. Today's show is sponsored by Alliance for Lifetime Income (retireyourrisk.org), PayPal (paypal.com)  and Selligent (selligent.com). (10/29/2018)
