On the 5th Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina we take a peak into the “new normal” in New Orleans. Also on the show: Young investors wary of stock market; An interview with the author of the ‘Hard Times Guide to Retirement Security;’ An interview with an anti-consumer who went on a year-long “Great American Apparel Diet;” and better now than later: Use those gift cards!
