08/08/2017: Let's do the numbers on a few crises

We're starting the show tonight by doing the numbers of two crises facing the U.S. — and neither of them have to do with North Korea. First, we'll talk about the challenges of getting money to fight the opioid crisis, then why fighting climate change doesn't have to mean cutting economic growth. Of course, we'll also look at how markets reacted to President Trump's talk of raining "fire and fury" on North Korea (with a shrug). After that, we'll look at recent advertising campaigns focused on social issues, their risks and their rewards. Plus: How the decline of laundromats is changing U.S. cities.
