Tess Vigeland: And finally to this week’s Marketplace Money Piggy Award.

Our little blue plastic friend is heading to Cincinnati. Feels like we’ve been there already this hour, doesn’t it. Because we have! Remember Summer called us with a question about paying off her mortgage against the advice of her father-in-law? Good for her for thinking so far ahead about getting rid of debt.

But that’s not why I’m giving her a pig. Remember she’s also a baker? And I am not above bribing for cookies. So how about some baked goods in exchange for plastic pork, huh? I think it’s a fair trade.
