Marketplace Scratch Pad

Every new beginning…

Scott Jagow May 29, 2009

Time once again for my weekly podcast, After the Bell, where I try to make sense of what happened in business and the economy. As I thought about the week, a famous quote came to mind: “Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.” The Roman philosopher Seneca said it first, but the pop band, Semisonic, resurrected it about 2,000 years later. It says a lot about what happened this week. You can listen to After the Bell here and subscribe to it here, so it’ll download automatically each week.

There’s a lot happening in the world.  Through it all, Marketplace is here for you. 

You rely on Marketplace to break down the world’s events and tell you how it affects you in a fact-based, approachable way. We rely on your financial support to keep making that possible.
