Welcome to another week on the Vince Coakley Radio Program!

We start the program by talking about Robert Hale Jr. giving graduates $1,000 at a commencement speech — $500 meant for the to keep and $500 for them to donate to a cause of their choice. Vince explains why he thinks that this is the kind of gesture that makes a positive impact on graduates rather than a negative one.

Vince also talks about some good news and some bad news for the American economy. Vince first talks about a price war coming between Target and Wal-Mart starting Memorial Day, and why regardless of which store “wins,” consumers are the real winners. The bad news — inflation concerns returning.

In the second half of the show Vince talks about the President of Iran and other officials dying in a helicopter crash + what that means for the conflicts in the Middle East as well as an apology from Sean “Diddy” and delays to the installation of toll lanes on 485.
