The unemployment rate is falling and some are now calling on the Federal Reserve  to start raising interest rates.  Does the famous “Phillips Curve” still apply in an age where the nature of unemployment has changed so radically? Next, in the wake of JP Morgan’s admission that 76 million households were hit with a data breach, up from just a few million in August, we explain how companies determine they have been breached, the forensics that go into identifying and repairing the breach, and what this means for JPMorgan’s 76 million households. We also take a look at the world of film adaptations – Gillian Flynn adapted her book “Gone Girl” into a screenplay herself, and she’s not the only author who has done the same very recently for high profile pics. It used to be pretty  hard for authors to get these gigs.  And, last but certainly not least, we trace the boom and bust of guar gum – a product used in everything from toothpaste to fracking.
