Marketplace Scratch Pad

Rules of the road

Scott Jagow May 22, 2009

My weekly podcast, After the Bell, is now available. You can subscribe to it, so it’ll download automatically each week, right here. It’s free. Every Friday, I try to make sense of what happened in business and the economy. This week was all about making new rules, from fuel standards to carbon emissions to credit cards. I get help, musically, from Incubus, Son Volt (one my favs) and Tom Cochrane. Thanks to producer Phyllis Owens, associate producer Fiona Ng and engineer Andrea Jackson-Gewirtz.
