Before the stock market plummeted, travel industry watchers were predicting that this Labor Day could break records for airline travel.

As part of Here & Now’s “View from the Top” conversation series, host Jeremy Hobson speaks with TripAdvisor co-founder, CEO and president Stephen Kaufer. TripAdvisor calls itself the world’s largest travel site.

Kaufer says the financial turbulence “might have a temporary effect” but “people will continue to travel no matter whether the weather’s a bit choppy at the moment or not.”
