FROM THIS EPISODE

The consumer economy is facing a challenge from what’s called the “sharing economy”—a new way of introducing people who own things to people who need to use them. Will new, Internet companies disrupt traditional patterns of doing business, or will they just fade away? The State Department has issued a world-wide travel alert and it’s closing dozens of US embassies and consulates this Sunday in the Middle East and Africa. The actions are based on what’s described as potential terrorism planned by al Qaeda and its affiliates. And on today's Talking Point, three-time MVP Alex Rodriguez may not be banned from baseball for all time…but he’s reportedly negotiating over a lengthy suspension and a substantial fine.
