It’s National Etiquette Week and Slate.com’s “Dear Prudence” answers a few listeners’ questions about money etiquette. Reporter Jeff Tyler also delves into the confusing world of tipping etiquette.
Home prices continue to slide, which makes some people question the value of buying a home. But Marketplace’s Chris Farrell thinks the time is now if you want to have your own abode. We also took a look at the impact the Credit Card Act has on plastic users. And here are the songs we played:
- Get the Balance Right – Depeche ModeBuy
- Night Falls – Booka ShadeBuy
- Rock It – Herbie HancockBuy
- Airplanes – B.o.B. ft. Hayley Williams of ParamoreBuy
- Always on My Mind – Pet Shop BoysBuy
- Theme to Parked Cars – LowfishBuy
If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air. But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.
Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.
When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
