    A weighty question: When is a kilogram not a kilogram?

    (Markets edition) It's that time of year again — no, not the holidays. Soon, lawmakers will once more contemplate the country's debt ceiling and decide whether or not we have an ever-impending government shutdown. Hemp farmers hope the new farm bill will decriminalize the crop, which is now lumped in with marijuana under federal law. And Japan Airlines will start giving its pilots breathalyzer tests at international airports after one of their own was found to be nine times over the legal limit at Heathrow. Plus, scientists have found a more precise measurement for the kilogram that's not based on a hunk of metal under glass in France, but what does the change mean for everyone else? Today's show is sponsored by the Alliance for Lifetime Income, the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, Paypal and American Express.

    Big business calls for Brexit backing

    (Global Edition) From the BBC World Service... As big businesses brace for Brexit, Rolls Royce's chief executive says contingency plans are in place in case no final agreement is reached before the divorce deadline in March. Japan Airlines announced all of its pilots will be subject to breath tests for alcohol in international airports after one of its pilots was found to have nine times the local maximum limit at London's Heathrow airport. Black and white TV still has a market, and it's about more than just nostalgia. And how the way a kilogram is officially measured might soon change.

    Pound falls in aftermath of Brexit resignations

    (Global Edition) From the BBC World Service... Several members of the U.K.'s government have resigned the day after a long-awaited draft outlining Britain's withdrawal from the European Union was agreed upon by Prime Minister Theresa May and Brussels. The news dampened British business and the value of the pound. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks exclusively to us at the ASEAN summit in Singapore about the importance of free trade between countries as a trade spat continues between two of the world's biggest economies: the U.S. and China. And we could see growing instability in how much we pay for our food, according to a new report. Today's show is sponsored by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation.
