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

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?
