12/12/2018
More
Sound business and ethics used to go hand-in-hand. Now they're distant cousins under the best of circumstances. Have we gone too far down the rabbit hole to ever return? Or perhaps it's just part of a cycle. Speaking of cycles, we discuss electric vehicles and why they're making so little progress in the global auto marketplace.

According to Karen Kataline, when Democrats gain control of the house in January, they will be fighting harder than ever to convince us that law-abiding citizens shouldn’t be trusted to have guns to defend themselves.
