A strong economy bolstered by low unemployment and rising wages is driving shoppers to the malls this Black Friday, kicking off what's expected to be one of the strongest holiday shopping seasons in years. Apple and Tesla are both making some price cuts. Apple is slashing the cost of its newest iPhone, the XR, in Japan, less than a month after its release. Tesla is lowering the price of its Model X and Model X cars in China by 12-26 percent.
