Speaking of catharsis, I discovered this little gem of a web site today, thanks to a tip from Marketplace Money producer Eve Troeh. It calls itself the definitive unemployment blog and has sections such as the “Survivor Guide” and “Resources for the Screwed,” in case you’re looking for a job. I also found this site, which has some wonderfully simple charts like this one:

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
