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.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.
