 In today's world of Internet and online business, what has happened to the personal relationship that used to exist between traders and clients? Author and psychologist Joseph A. Michelli speaks to Doug this week about The Starbucks Experience, and what businesses can learn from the famous coffee chain's very human workplace techniques.

 And is America still the Goldeneh Medineh? Does it still offer the "rags to riches" opportunities that have fueled the plot of many a Hollywood movie and the experiences of our grandparents? Rabbi Yaakov Spivak, dean of Eyshel Avraham Rabbinical Seminary, gives us a broad perspective of life in America and its attitude towards materialism today.
