Netflix vs. the World


Listen now on

Among the topics our analysts discuss on this weekend's Motley Fool Money radio show:

  • On the third anniversary of the collapse of Lehman Brothers, is Europe getting ready to stage a sequel? Listen as our analysts discuss the growing debt crisis in Europe and what U.S. investors should do.

  • Shares of Netflix (NAS: NFLX) have fallen 45% in the last two months. Does this spell opportunity for rival DISH Network (NAS: DISH) ? And what can Netflix CEO Reed Hastings do to turn things around?

  • Meanwhile, the financial media is already starting to ponder which companies might acquire Netflix. Does the fact that Hastings sits on the board of Microsoft (NAS: MSFT) factor in? Or would Google's (NAS: GOOG) deep pockets make the difference?

  • Ever since we first discussed the fact that Tang (yes, the powdered drink) is the latest Kraft Foods (NYS: KFT) brand to hit the $1 billion mark, our listeners can't seem to get enough. We put our taste buds on the line and sample "Tuna Tang" from Mexico.

All that plus corporate-governance expert and film critic Nell Minow discusses Apple, Costco, and the state of the movie business.
