The Motley Experience on WRSU is back after taking a brief hiatus during Spring Break!
We return to the air with a fantastic show and our first ever interview with John Boyd, Jr from The Boyd Company.
Our discussion includes what our current national and state level economic and industry trends, as well as what states and the nation can do to stimulate more economic growth.
The United States and Afghanistan have negotiated a security agreement that Karzai says the future government in Kabul must decide whether it will accept it or not. His regime has also been talking to the Taliban, trying to make peace with them.
On this past week’s broadcast/podcast of The Motley Experience on WRSU, the topic of Bitcoins was discussed.
The use of bitcoins has been highlighted in the news recently and will most likely continue to do so due the controversy surrounding the subject.
To ensure that readers of The Motley Experience have a better understanding of what bitcoins actually are, I have put together a basic overview.
Bitcoin is often referred to as a new kind of currency. But it may be best to think of its units being virtual tokens rather than physical coins or notes. However, like all currencies its value is determined by how much people are willing to exchange it for.
There has been quite a lot of chatter recently concerning a raise in the minimum wage. Discussion has increased since President Obama’s State of the Union Address this past Tuesday, where he called for a raise in the minimum wage to $10.10 (the current national minimum wage is $7.25, although the number varies by state). The major issue with a wage hike is whether the consequences will be positive or negative for the economy.
