For Marketplace Money, Friday, September 16, 2011

This week’s show started off on a gloomier note. A new population — older, educated Americans — are filing for bankruptcy at a rapidly increasing rate. Mass layoffs are probably going to contribute to those numbers. Spain’s mortgage laws make foreclosures even worse: You lose the house, yet you have to keep paying up.

But we wouldn’t leave you listeners without a silver lining. One writer gives advice on how to cobble a “DIY degree,” so you can get a better edge in the job market without going to college. And a Los Angeles comedian laments the excesses of deals websites like Groupon. Tess Vigeland and Chris Farrell dispense weekly personal finance advice to listeners. And if you’re looking to make some extra cash, we look at the trend of people offering their spare bedrooms and guesthouses for a fraction of a night at a hotel. Here are the songs we played:

  • Suicide Policeman – YuckBuy
  • Kansai – Ra Ra RiotBuy
  • Go with You – Toro y MoiBuy
  • El Toro – BonoboBuy
  • Be my girl – Sally – The PoliceBuy
  • Perfect – PinkBuy
