For Marketplace Money, Friday, September 10, 2010
Can money buy you happiness? Professor Elizabeth Dunn argues that maybe happiness doesn’t depend on how big your bank account is, but rather what you spend it on. If you’re not so good at keeping track of what you’re spending on, the proverbial wallet — a digital wallet created by MIT student John Kestner that helps you keep track of your finances in real time — may be for you. There were also stories about the housing situation in the South, and the difficulties many refugees are facing when trying to find employment in the U.S. Tess also takes time to read your letters, and continues contemplating her DJ name. Here’s what we DJed for the show:
- Blips, Drips and Strips – StereolabBuy
- Brooklyn is Burning – Head AutomaticaBuy
- Dials – School of Seven BellsBuy
- A Taste of Honey – Chet AtkinsBuy
- Joe Metro – Blue ScholarsBuy
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?
