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
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.
