For Marketplace Money, Friday, November 12, 2010

This weekend on Marketplace Money it’s all about kids and money. We interview FDIC chair Sheila Bair, also a children’s book author, about tips and strategies for teaching kids about financial literacy. We also visit a school and meet Sammy Rabbit, a fluffy-costumed character that travels from school to school teaching kids about saving money. We’ve got money tips for Mom and Dad, too, including financial planning advice for expecting parents.

Plus, shopping for a holiday plane ticket? There’s a right time to buy online and we tell you how. And there’s gold fever around the world so we asked the question: when will the fever break? These are the songs we played:

  • Paper Planes – MIABuy
  • Cassettesingle – Fujiya and MiyagiBuy
  • Belisha Beacon – Funki PorciniBuy
  • Feel Good Track of Rosemead – Family of the YearBuy

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.
