Morning reading…

Kai Ryssdal Oct 15, 2008

Two quick articles from my reading this morning that I thought were interesting.

The New York Times takes us into the conference room where Paulson lowered the boom on big banking.

And just in case you think nothing like this has ever happened before, Edward Chancellor in the Financial Times has the historical context.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
