I want a new drug

Scott Jagow Sep 4, 2009

On this week’s After the Bell podcast, I have some perspective on the employment report, the Fed’s profits and the taxman. Plus, I talk to a guy who knows the drug industry inside and out. He’s a great interview, you won’t want to miss it. Musical assistance from Stevie Ray Vaughn (yeah!), Huey Lewis and John Lennon.
