What’s sticking … and what ain’t

Paddy Hirsch Aug 7, 2009

Our weekly podcast, After the Bell, is now available. Bob Moon’s been looking back at this week’s news, and he has the feeling that the government’s going through one of those idea incubation excercises that overpaid consultants like to conduct. “Clunkers, TARP buybacks, loan modifications, toss it at the wall and let’s see what sticks!”

Musical assistance and a film clip from Paramount Pictures. Produced by Paddy Hirsch and Fiona Ng, engineered by Charlton Thorp.
