Episode #61 - Tacos & Cigars

Fastener road warriors approach their travels in different ways, but those who listen to the fastener industry's top on-demand radio show will learn what's keeping the financial system afloat, as Federal Reserve economist, Mr. William Strauss, explains the role and methods of our central bank (73:22). Guest-host, Bob Baer, of Abbott Interfast, joins the discussion, adding his unique style of thinking to the conversation. On the Fastener News Report, Mike McNulty covers several important stories, including a shake up at Cardinal Fastener, and yet another large acquisition announcement. He also speaks with new IFI chairman, Steve Paddock, about the biggest challenge facing the industry, and also announces this year's Soaring Eagle Awards (43:46). Plus, Lou Boyd, of The Olander Company, reviews the recent Pac-West table top and spring meeting and discusses business conditions in the Silicon Valley (21:10). Hosts, Brian and Eric, recount their recent sojourn to central Wisconsin, which was a great place to visit despite the brutally cold temperatures and dearth of good taco stands. Run time: 02:10:39
