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

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.
