On today's show, we go inside the matzo business. A rabbi at a matzo factory explains why matzo is supposed to be hard to make. A Manischewitz exec tells us why all the rules for making kosher matzo are a boon to the company. And we learn what this niche industry has to tell us about the overall economy.
