For Marketplace, Friday, March 25, 2011

For this weekend’s episode, we looked at the financial choices and challenges people face at various milestone ages. From the teen who’s debating how much debt to take on for higher education to new parents getting a financial reality check to not having enough savings to have comfortable golden years.

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?
