American business schools – “B-schools” – got a checkered reputation in the last decade. Enron and Worldcom scandals had people asking what kind of ethics they were teaching. The crash of ’08 left people asking what kind of business they were teaching.

Now, a new generation of leaders is moving into top slots at the country’s top B-schools. We hear from the heads of Harvard Business School, Northwestern’s Kellogg School and Berkeley’s Haas School, on the US economy now - and their role.

Plus, we look ahead from the big new injunction on “don’t ask, don’t tell.”
