Fortune Live for August 18, 2016: Steve Easterbrook, Fortune’s Change the World List, and Sneakernomics
We have a great lineup today for Fortune Live, hosted this week by Andrew Nusca.
First, Andrew covers some of this week’s top headlines. All eyes are on retail: We discuss Walmart’s (WMT) earnings news, and Target’s (TGT) nose dive in sales. Plus, class is back in session and retailers are expected to cash in big on school supplies. We get an update on the important back-to-school shopping season. Then, Fortune’s Phil Wahba and Beth Kowitt play a special food-themed round of “Flop or Fly.”
Then, in our series “Really?!”, Fortune’s Shawn Tully points out some flaws in Hillary Clinton’s job-creation plan.
Next, Fortune’s Change the World list is out! We take a look at the companies that are doing well by doing good, and hear from McDonald’s (MCD) CEO Steve Easterbrook on the company’s transition to cage-free eggs—a move that landed them on this year’s list.
Another company that notched a spot on this year list is Mastercard (MA). Michael Miebach, the company’s chief product officer, stops by the studio to discuss the company’s Aid Network, and to talk about digital payments.
Then, Fortune‘s Beth Kowitt sat down with McDonald’s CEO in Chicago to get an update on the company’s turnaround plan. We’ll hear the highlights, and then talk trends in fast-food chains with the experts: Beth and Fortune writer John Kell.
And up next, on-demand beauty is every woman’s dream. One company is making it come true by delivering stylists to your front door. We meet the founder of Glam App.
We close our show with an inside look at the craze and cash behind the sneaker resale market.
