Marketplace Scratch Pad

What’s on your mind?

Scott Jagow Mar 19, 2009

I have the day off tomorrow, so I won’t be posting to the blog. But I have a very capable replacement – Marketplace Senior Editor Paddy Hirsch. Paddy’s the mastermind behind our Whiteboard Videos, which are invaluable in terms of explaining heinously complex things like write-downs, cramdowns and the uptick rule. While I’m away, I do have something for you to think about.

I’d like to know what questions you have that aren’t being answered. What’s perplexing you about the government’s response or the economic recovery? Is there a business or economic issue you think deserves more attention? Or further explanation?

Post your questions/issues in the comments section, and on Monday, I’ll sort through them and do my best to try to find some answers or explanations.

Have a good weekend!

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.
