    Inflation is now a factor in the exodus of educators

    Inflation is now a factor in the exodus of educators

    Teachers and other education workers are up against pandemic burnout, understaffed schools and wages that aren’t keeping up with inflation. As a result, a recent study has revealed that job satisfaction among those in the profession is at its lowest levels, forcing already-burdened teachers to leave at record rates. U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen called on other nations to combat global hunger before the G-7 meeting. Christopher Low joins us to discuss the morning’s market behavior.

    Biden visits Samsung factory in South Korea to highlight U.S. chip manufacturing

    President Biden is in South Korea today, the first of a five-day Asia tour. His first stop? A Samsung computer chip factory. A similar one is to be built in Texas. The president is using his visit to the Samsung plant to push lawmakers here in the U.S. to provide billions of dollars in funding for domestic chip manufacturing. Big retailers are reporting that their loads of surplus inventory are cutting into their profits. We dive into the story of a lawsuit from the descendants of Henrietta Lacks, a Black woman whose cancer cells were taken without her consent and used in the creation of vaccines and other materials that led to billions in profits for pharmaceutical companies. The case explores a variety of ethical questions.

    How the pros weather this financial turbulence

    How the pros weather this financial turbulence

    How much impact will inflation have on profits? Will higher interest rates lead a recession? Investors are getting out of stocks at a rate that’s causing the markets to fall at concerning levels. To navigate through some of this, we consult with Barry Ritholtz, a veteran who has seen it all. Also, companies have been trying to get employees back into the office, at least a few days a week. But rising COVID infection rates are frustrating some of those efforts. We look into the return of tourism, which can be an economic driver for lots of places – but also a source of disruption.

    Department of Education to guide colleges toward addressing students’ mental health

    Department of Education to guide colleges toward addressing students’ mental health

    But first … we attempt to put yesterday’s down market numbers into context, even though the market doesn’t appear any better this morning. The Department of Education is offering guidance on how colleges can utilize government funding to address the mental health of students. Marketplace’s Stephanie Hughes just spoke with U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona about this, and we have some of the highlights of their discussion. Plus, China’s COVID lockdowns in its largest port cities triggered concerns about even more disruptions to the already-burdened global supply chain. But in our discussion with Gene Seroka, the executive director of the Port of Los Angeles, that hasn’t happened. We spoke to Seroka about the various challenges the port has been facing.

Crap

Keep trying to convince us that record inflation is being caused by the war in Ukraine.
