Marketplace Scratch Pad

Bubbles, Bandits and Burghers

Scott Jagow Sep 25, 2009

My weekly podcast, After the Bell, is now available. This week, Marketplace’s Paddy Hirsch and I dig deeper into the week’s top stories. Plus, I spend some time with former Pittsburgher Rico Gagliano. I know there’s a lot of attention focused on the global economy, but it’s good to talk about what’s going on with local economies, too, and Pittsburgh’s an interesting case. Music this week includes the Steve Miller Band, Frank Black and Spongebob Squarepants. Spongebob is worried about the next bubble.
