We’re answering questions about some of the biggest financial decisions people make in their life: Education and retirement. One father wants to know whether it’s better to take out a loan or pull money from his retirement fund to pay for his daughter’s education. Another caller is obsessive about saving, but overwhelmed with retirement options. And we check in with a listener who was on the verge of a big life decision when he called us in 2009.

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.
