For Marketplace Money, Friday, July 15, 2011

Amid the debates over the federal debt ceiling, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau will be opening up shop next Thursday. We listen on the congressional hearings regarding the new bureau. One lending insider tells us why he thinks this bureau will be a success. Underwater home owners may be able to lighten their load by eliminating a second mortgage via little known legal provision. Carl Richards of the New York TImes’ Bucks blog shares another napkin illustration on why following the stock market will actually keep you from getting rich. And Millenials may have the skills to get the job done — tech savvy, able to multitask — but they need more help with basic etiquette. And heere are the songs we played:

  • Hella Good – No DoubtBuy
  • Under Cover of Darkness – The StrokesBuy
  • Kids – MGMTBuy
  • Real Scared – CopyBuy
  • Shoots – CopyBuy
  • Happy Workers – Tori Amos
