Marketplace Scratch Pad

The week that was

Scott Jagow Oct 2, 2009

My weekly podcast, After the Bell, is now available. I talk to our Washington correspondent Steve Henn about why companies are dropping out of the US Chamber of Commerce and what’s going on behind the scenes there. Plus, as promised, a chat with John Carney of Clusterstock about naked short selling. I’ll get another viewpoint on that subject next week. Some good music too, including Ida Maria, Styx and Mr. Johnny Cash. If you’d like ATB to download automatically each Friday, click here.
