Marketplace Scratch Pad

Strong medicine

Paddy Hirsch Jul 24, 2009

Our weekly podcast, After the Bell, is now available. This week, Bob Moon examines the healthcare debate raging on Capitol Hill. He also looks at the symptoms ailing CIT, which is giving small businesses a serious case of indigestion, and he goes bedside with Ben Bernanke, surgeon-in-charge of economic resuscitation. How will the good doctor go about closing up the patient now that he’s stabilized?

Phyllis Owens produced the podcast, with assistance from Fiona Ng and Charlton Thorp.
