Do you prefer in-person interactions or using apps for things like banking and personal finance? We’re giving you both sides of the coin today. Banking has evolved and apps give us almost the same capabilities as walking into the bank, so do we still need physical bank branches? Our roundtable today shares their thoughts on banking and what banks can do to excel in this world of technology. Harlan Landes from the Plutus Foundation, Paula Pant and Len Penzo make up our contributors today. They talk about online apps, customer service and more in the banking world. Don’t you worry, we also saved some time for Doug’s trivia contest!

Doug’s Game Show Trivia
- A law was passed called The Onion Futures Act, which bans the trading of futures contracts on onions as well as an increasingly random list of other things, like weirdly “motion picture box office receipts”. So, my question is: what year was the Onion Futures Act passed?
