Today: IUPUI professor and senior lecturer Pierre Atlas is back on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about the latest events in the Russian invasion of Ukraine and its impact in human lives and in political and economic terms. PNC Financial Services senior economist Abbey Omodunbi also gives us his view on the financial impact of the conflict on the global economy and other U.S. economic news. And on "Reporters Roundtable," "Times" business reporter Joseph Pete reviews his recent stories on BP divesting itself from shares in a Russian oil company over the Ukraine invasion, the Region steel mills' payouts of up to $14,515 in profit-sharing bonuses to employees in the fourth quarter and why a northwest Indiana retailer is raising its starting wages amid a very tight labor market.
