This is the regular gig: 

Today’s Kudlow & Company [1], is on CNBC today at 5pm. I’m scheduled to be on from 5:10 to 6:00 pm.

Also on is Marketwatch’s Herbert Greenberg, John Rutledge of Rutledge Capital, and Noah Blackstein of Dynamic Mutual Funds.

Topics will include the Market Rally, Metal Rally, Senators trading on Congressional Inside Information, and Major League Baseball steroid scandal.


UPDATE March 30, 2006  11:12pm

After the show, I met John Rutledge, who was in the NYC remote studio also. John’s a fascinating character, a true old world gentleman. He’s been to China as often as some people go out eat chinese food.

We spoke about a ton of things — I mentioned that Larry is becoming a very vocal Bush White House critic (He should have Krugman back on), and John regaled me with some Reagan stories. Say what you will about RR, but he was less obsessed with loyalty than competance. Under Reagan, the shake up going on now in the White House would have happened about 3 months into the Iraq war.

John and I discussed part of the immigration issue not getting much press; Economically, I care less about the Mexico situation and more about the Brain Drain threatening [2] our tech companies and research universities.  There is now a global competition for talent [3] — one that we are on the verge of losing through dumb immigration policies. Post 9/11 national security issues should not become a force in shifting the balance of scientific power [4].

I’d like to see this discussed in a future show . . .
