Marketplace Scratch Pad

The kids are alright, part 2

Scott Jagow Sep 15, 2009

This is a complimentary post to our new web project, Small Town Hall. I talked to kids about the economy and their ideas on money, saving, borrowing, etc. Well, PBS has a new documentary that looks at how those kids might behave financially about 10 years from now.

You can watch the documentary here. It’s hosted by actor Donald Faison. It’s recommended viewing, especially for teens, parents or people in their 20’s.

And if you haven’t seen the highlights of the Small Town Hall, don’t miss them! Click here to watch.

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.
