What the bailout means for Minnesotans

Chris Farrell Oct 2, 2008

I participated in a roundtable discussion last night with a number of Minnesotans, including a community bank president, a medical device entrepreneur, retiree, and a diversity consultant. The topic: the impact of the credit crunch and the bailout on their lives. What were they seeing? What troubled them?

It was a good conversation. You can listen to the broadcast on Minnesota Public Radio it here.
