The Opening Bell 08-23-16: Pleasant Farming Present. Fearful Farming Future.
On the August 23, 2016 episode of The Opening Bell, Steve checked in with the peak of the summer farming by chatting with Purdue University Agriculturalist, David Widmar. David told Steve that their new agriconomie barometer is a major help in analysis, but we might have hit the year’s peak. We then shifted gears to the consumer market as the fight between in person and online shopping continues. Steve invited Charlotte Howard, Consumer Goods & Marketing Correspondent for The Economist, to talk about the future of retail.
