Playlist: Reflecting on 9/11

Posted by Christina Huh

For Marketplace Monday, Friday, September 9, 2011

This weekend, we remember 9/11 -- how it changed our economy, our society, and our lives. Listeners weigh in on how the terrorist attacks on September 11th [changed their personal finances](). And we feature more voices in our special project: [The Economic Legacy of 9/11]().

This week, we also look at financial PTSD, and how the economy the past few years has depleted many pocketbooks -- and [traumatized many consumers]().

President Obama unveiled his big jobs plan this week. With unemployment so bad in the U.S., these days it seems more Americans are looking overseas for jobs. But before you go looking overseas for a job -- [listen to our advice]().

We have a story about how [fewer parents are leaving inheritances for children](). And a commentary from a personal finance writer who says that college is still worth it -- but [only if colleges literally invest in their students' success]().

We continue our "What's in your wallet" series with a [skateboard shop owner](). And we look at [garage and yard sales in Alaska]().

Finally, getting back to 9/11, host [Bob Moon offers a personal reflection]() on what really matters on the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks.
