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.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
