For Marketplace Money, Friday, January 28, 2011
On this weekend’s show, we had heard a personal horror story concerning mortgage modification. It’s just one of many coming out of this housing crisis.
It’s that time of the year — to start paying off the debt accumulated from the holidays. Marketplace’s Chris Farrell gave his advice on how to get started. We also heard from Heidi Moore on the not-well-known differences between investment advisors and brokers. Germany raised its retirement age by two years, and companies and employees are beginning to see the unexpected consequences. Bob Moon took Ford’s new MyKey system for a drive, one of many new high-tech gadgets that are aimed at helping us drive better. And Tess spoke to Slate’s Tim Noah on writing complaint letters. Here are the songs we played:
- Everloving – Moby
- Groove Holmes – Beastie BoysBuy
- Behind the Wheel – Depeche ModeBuy
- Check Yo Self – Ice CubeBuy
- Uprising – MuseBuy
- Insane in the Brain – Cypress HillBuy
- Body Language – M.A.N.D.Y. vs. Booka ShadeBuy
