The best documentary I have seen in a long while, American Factory is my recommendation for this week, American Factory takes viewers from the closing of a Midwestern GM plant to the Chinese auto glass enterprise that reopens it. We go from sadness to euphoria and back to sadness again. It is a good story that continues to unfold. (Amazingly, it is easy to access through Netflix.)

2. Called “happy hour” (but there is no alcohol), at 9 pm a 60% discount on soon-to-be expired food kicks in at Finland’s S-market grocery chain.
This NY Times happy hour article builds from our econlife food waste post.
