Podcast: Kudlow & Company

click graphic for podcast

Kudlow_company_2Yesterday, I did a podcast with Larry Kudlow about the holiday shopping season. Its posted online now.

Despite the kinda weird sound quality (we did it over the phone), and my usally nasal voice sounding unusally nasal, I am actually somewhat upbeat (surprisingly) about this Xmas shopping season.

This stands in stark contrast to my expectations, especially considering some of my previous comments about the potential for a 2006/07 recession.
