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

There’s a lot happening in the world.  Through it all, Marketplace is here for you. 

You rely on Marketplace to break down the world’s events and tell you how it affects you in a fact-based, approachable way. We rely on your financial support to keep making that possible.
