Mid-day show

Chris Farrell Sep 27, 2008

I did Minnesota Public Radio’s Mid-day show hosted by Gary Eichten on Friday. The other guest was Louis Johnston: Economics professor, St. John’s University and the College of St. Benedict. The topic? What else?

In the largest bank failure in American history, federal regulators seized Washington Mutual, the country’s largest savings and loan, and sold much of the company to J.P Morgan Chase. Meanwhile, Congress is still working to hammer out a rescue deal for Wall Street. Midday explores the latest in financial news.
