Wait ’til Bernanke sees THIS!

You know Iceland’s been having problems, right? Banks are failing, the currency’s frozen, all kinds of bad things.

Well, the central bank has decided to do something about it. Raise interest rates.

A lot.

Oh, and the U.S. Fed meets today and tomorrow to talk about interest rates here.

There’s a lot happening in the world.  Through it all, Marketplace is here for you.
