We've been off for a month, but let's start catching up on things.
The price of oil is falling. You may cheer cheaper gasoline short term, but if there's an oil glut, it may be unmasking the fairytale myth of global economic recovery.
Are you watching the stock market? Its legs are looking wobbly. Are you tracking foreign currencies? The only reason the dollar looks good is that so many other currencies look so bad.
The Obama military campaign against the Islamic State continues to be a pre-election side show. For all the resources committed, there appears to be very little pay-back.
And then there's Ebola. No surprise it's here. It wasn't nearly so containable to Africa as politicians and public officials made it out to be.
These topics should get us started, and we may add others. Feel free to bring others to the table. Show starts at 1:00 pm EDT Friday, and runs for two full hours.
