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:
