Marketplace Scratch Pad

The (short) week that was

Scott Jagow Jul 2, 2009

I hope you have tomorrow off. I do. So, my weekly podcast, After the Bell, is available now. Yesterday marked the start of the fiscal year for many states, and it wasn’t a good beginning. On this week’s podcast, I find out more about trading IOUs in California and what sneaky things banks might be up to behind the scenes. Musical assistance from Creedence Clearwater Revival, Elliott Smith and Ray Charles. In-house help from Phyllis Owens, Fiona Ng and Hunter Ochs. You can listen to the podcast below, but if you’d like it to download automatically each week, here’s the link for that. Happy 4th!
