It's no doubt that part of the economic crisis is rooted in fear. People are holding back on spending even if their financial situation hasn't changed because of their anxiety about the future. Two companies are trying to address that fear as a way to increase sales. JetBlue and Hyundai are both offering refunds to people who lose their jobs.

John Krafcik, CEO of Hyundai North America Motors, and Dave Barger, CEO of JetBlue Airlines, join The Takeaway to explain their companies' refund programs for the involuntarily jobless.

"We can't predict the future, but we can certainly try to take maybe some of the unknown out of the future."
