For Marketplace Money, Fri., Aug. 12, 2011

It’s been a crazy week, filled with the downgrade of U.S. credit by Standard & Poor’s and dramatic market gains and losses. All over the country people wrote to Marketplace Money with similar questions. How will this affect me, and what am I supposed to do now? We put those questions to our panel of economists.

Here are the songs we played today:

  • Frisco Wave – SquarepusherBuy
  • Mishaps Happening – Quantic Buy
  • I Need A Dollar – Aloe BlaccBuy
  • Futuristic Casket – PhantogramBuy
  • Don’t Sweat The Technique – Eric B. and RakimBuy

As a nonprofit news organization, our future depends on listeners like you who believe in the power of public service journalism.
