Marketplace Scratch Pad

The kids are alright

Scott Jagow Sep 14, 2009

There’s a lot of talk about how the economic decisions of today will affect future generations. But we rarely talk to the future. So, I gathered a few kids together and held a Small Town Hall to hear their thoughts about money, the economy and their future. If you think children aren’t tuned into this stuff, think again.

Click here to watch video highlights of the Small Town Hall. There are some great little moments, pardon the pun. Highly recommended viewing!

After you watch the clips, I’d love to get your impressions and any thoughts you’d like to share on the subject.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.
