Marketplace Scratch Pad

Economy still bed-ridden?

Scott Jagow Aug 14, 2009

My weekly podcast, After the Bell, is now available. This week was an important one for figuring out how far the economy might be from getting out of the hospital and how it’ll be weaned from all those government IV tubes. Musical assistance from The Perishers, New Buffalo and Conor Oberst, long-time lead singer of Bright Eyes (one of my favorites).
