Marketplace Scratch Pad

Let’s haggle!

Scott Jagow Feb 10, 2009

We have this wonderful operation connected to Marketplace called the Public Insight Network. It’s the place where listeners and people in the web audience can share their experiences and possibly contribute to or be interviewed for a Marketplace story. The Public Insight people ask a lot of questions at their blog, The Trading Floor. Today, they’re asking about haggling. Have you ever haggled at a retail store? Any luck? Has the haggling climate changed with this economy? In response to their questions, I shared my own experience with haggling, which you can read here.

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

You rely on Marketplace to break down the world’s events and tell you how it affects you in a fact-based, approachable way. We rely on your financial support to keep making that possible. 

Your donation today powers the independent journalism that you rely on. For just $5/month, you can help sustain Marketplace so we can keep reporting on the things that matter to you.
