Is It Time to Join Forces with Another Business?
As a child of the 80s, I remember the excitement when the Wonder Twins would join forces and utter those magical words “Wonder Twin powers activate!” Sure, there were often comical results but both characters used their strengths to save the day. The same is happening with business these days. We’re seeing a lot of it among big brands - unlikely partnerships to sell additional products or services. Some of them are umbrella situations where the companies are owned by the same parent organization, but others are simply recognizing that to be competitive, they have to offer their customers more.

How a National Rail Shutdown Will Impact Consumers
From the U.S. Chamber of Commerce

If an agreement is not reached by the nation’s six largest freight railroads and remaining unions in the next two days, our nation’s railroads will shut down, causing national economic consequences.

Businesses are already seeing delays and suspensions in service as the railroads prepare their networks for a potential strike.

A shutdown of the nation’s rail service would have enormous impacts to the economy, costing more than $2 billion per day. U.S. consumers would be heavily impacted as well.
