    Walmart—yes, Walmart—is making changes that could help solve America’s wealth inequality problem

    Or we can lift the income for workers in the bottom 90%—those with an average household income of $34,000—through minimum wage increases, tax credits, and subsidies. It’s not a new strategy, but until now it’s mostly been confined to a few outliers, like Starbucks and Costco, easily dismissed as niche companies with unusually progressive leaders or business models that are hard to replicate. For decades, Walmart has been among the most vilified corporations in America, if not the world, for its labor policies, its supply chain practices, and its impact on small-town merchants everywhere.

    Delta, Battling Boeing Over Trade, Will Roll Out Its New Airbus A350

    Note to Boeing Co. (BA) : This might not be a great week for you. In its trade dispute with Delta Air Lines Inc.

Last week, Delta CEO President Ed Bastian blasted Boeing during the carrier's third-quarter earnings call. This week, Bastian and other Delta executives will hold forth at Delta's media day, an event built around the carrier's rollout of the Airbus A350 for international and domestic reporters. Delta took delivery of its first A350 in July in Toulouse, France. It expects to have five in its fleet by the end of the year. It has ordered 20. It will use the aircraft

    Contrary to what President Donald Trump might have intended, there was something for every major political group in Iran to enjoy in his Friday speech on the U.S. administration’s new Iran strategy. The moderate government of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani breathed a sigh of relief that there would be no major development on the 2015 historic nuclear deal until another 60 days, if then, while the U.S. Congress debates on what to do. The security-military establishment, meanwhile, was pleased that the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) was not outright designated a terrorist entity.

Earlier this month, Tesla reported it produced 260 of its new Model 3 electric cars in the third quarter, of which it delivered 220, dramatically missing CEO Elon Musk's prediction that the company would produce more than 1,600 cars by September.

    Everything With Wi-Fi Has a Newly Discovered Security Flaw. Here's How to Protect Yourself

    A recently discovered vulnerability could allow attackers to intercept sensitive data being transmitted between a Wi-Fi access point and a computer or mobile device, even if that data is encrypted. The flaw, known as KRACK, affects WPA2, a security protocol widely used in most modern Wi-Fi devices. In some cases, a hacker could exploit KRACK to inject malware such as ransomware into websites, according to KU Leuven’s Mathy Vanhoef, the researcher who discovered the vulnerability.
