Acclaimed New York Times business reporter James B. Stewart joins host Jeff Spurgeon for a new Friday morning show about current economic and business matters.

For his first visit on WQXR, Stewart talks about his personal investigation of one of this election year’s hot topics: income tax rates. Stewart recently went through his 2010 return to find out what his own income tax rate is. He’s still recovering from the shock, but has heard from people whose stories are even more extreme.
