For Marketplace Money, Friday, December 24, 2010

For our pre-holiday episode, we revisit our What is Rich? episode from October, and re-evaluate people’s perceptions of wealth, in the wake of the tax cut extension. Plus, we hear Sean Cole’s story from last year about the true costs of the “12 Days of Christmas.” Here are the festive songs we played:

  • Billionaire – Travie McCoy & Bruno MarsBuy
  • Christmas is Coming – Vince GuaraldiBuy
  • Christmas Waltz – Atlantic Five Jazz BandBuy
  • Christmas In Las Vegas – Los StraitjacketsBuy
  • Wonderful Christmas Time – Paul McCartneyBuy
  • Frosty the Snowman – Christmas MoodBuy

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.
