It takes a pillage

Scott Jagow Oct 23, 2009

My weekly podcast, After the Bell, is now available. This week, I talk to Nomi Prins. She used to work for Goldman Sachs, but now writes for The Daily Beast and has a new book: It Takes a Pillage. Great title, huh? The book’s description on Amazon: A former Wall Street manager turned muckraking journalist gets inside how the banks looted the Treasury, stole the bailout, and continued with business as usual. We talk about what’s wrong with the government’s proposals on pay, why she left Wall Street and whether all the populist anger is justified. Plus, I break down the week that was. Music from ZZ Top, Men Without Hats and BB Jay. If you’d like ATB to download automatically each week, click here. Click continue reading to listen now.
