Marketplace Scratch Pad

The biggies

My weekly podcast, After the Bell, is now available. This week, the government got serious about two enormous projects — health care reform and financial regulation. Besides breaking down the plans and what happened this week, I talk to a former financial regulator who has some excellent insights. I think you’ll want to hear what he says. Musical assistance from Kanye West, Rufus Wainwright and Dead Prez. If you’d like ATB to download automatically each week, here’s the link for that. And here’s this week’s show:
