The Rundown-Thurs 3/22/18: The Capitalist Pig(s)

There's pretty much never been a job as fantastic as pit trading. Jonathan Hoenig (known on TV as the Capitalist Pig) and I were both pit traders in Chicago. We'll talk about the evolution of trading when Jonathan joins the show at 7:06 AM on Thursday.

Jonathan has written/compiled a book called The Pit: Photographic Portrait of the Chicago Trading Floor which sure brings back memories for me.

Jonathan also made a movie called Pit Trading 101...but since he's a capitalist it will cost you $2.99 to watch it:


At 8:47, we'll talk with Tamra Meurer who is representing a group of owners of small nursing homes as the Colorado Board of Health (part of CDPHE) look to implement a huge re-write of nursing home rules which Tamra says may put dozens of small assisted living residences (ALRs) out of business even though they have done absolutely nothing wrong.

I believe that the Trump legal team has the upper hand in enforcing the NDAs with the porn star and the former Playboy bunny who say they had affairs with him over a decade ago. But that doesn't mean the situation doesn't pose a problem for the president. More than that, a decision by a court in New York yesterday regarding a former Apprentice contestant suing Trump for defamation poses a clear and present danger to Trump. I bet he'll settle with her...unless she really doesn't want money and instead just wants to hurt him.
