Marketplace Money for Friday, June 1, 2012

Episode Teaser Image 
Episode Description 
In a country crafted from dreams, can someone with their head in the clouds succeed? We talk to a man who turned down millions for his land in order to start his own resort. Plus, here's something for those of you who dream of swimming in money -- literally, you dream about swimming in money. You and Scrooge McDuck. We talk to a dream reader about the financial dreams you have while you snooze. And in chasing a dream, you have to pay attention to what's happening with loved ones on the sidelines.
