For Marketplace Money, Friday, January 14, 2011
On this week’s show, we discovered that January is prime time for divorce attorneys. We heard from WedLock Divorce Insurance ECO John Logan about the importance of divorce insurance, and from attorney Kelly Chang about how to prepare financially for a divorce. Tess also spoke to Dr. Frank Murtha, the co-author of “Marketpsych: How to Manage Fear and Build Your Investor Identity,” about how to create a successful “investor’s identity.” Eve Troeh reported on the importance of finding the job that suits you, the purpose-driven career. Marketplace Tech Report’s John Moe explained his thoughts on the announcement that the iPhone is going to Verizon. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is getting ready to launch its online database to help report possibly unsafe or hazardous products. The L.A. Times’ David Lazarus joined Tess to answer listener questions in Getting Personal. And we had the latest installment of “What’s in Your Wallet?” Make sure to check out the web exclusive of David Lazarus’ wallet too. And here are the songs we played:
- Kong – BonoboBuy
