Program Description

Madoff Ponzi Scheme Investor Bernard Madoff was arrested on Thursday for an alleged $50 billion Ponzi scheme that defrauded several of the world’s biggest banks. Officials believe Madoff falsified reports from a money management service that he owned—separate from his main stock transaction firm—to make him appear more successful than he really was. Guests: Mitchell Zuckoff, Boston University; John Osbon, Founder, Osbon Capital Management

Smoking Ban On Thursday, the Boston Public Health Commission passed one of the strictest antismoking laws in the nation by banning the sale of cigarettes at pharmacies and on college campuses. In two months, drug stores and college convenience stores will no longer be allowed to sell any tobacco products. Guests: Dr. Barbara Ferrer, Boston Public Health Commission; Leonard Glantz, BU School of Public Health; Stephen Mindich, Chairman, Phoenix Media Publisher Group
