Getting Personal: Money and your parents

Tess Vigeland and Chris Farrell Nov 24, 2011

On tap for this week: A soon-to-be certified financial planner is unsure how to talk to her parents about their money and another listener — who just fixed a big drain on her mother’s finances — wants to know how to prevent financial disasters from happening her mom again. We also check in with a previous caller who wanted to know whether he should take a six-month trip around the world with his wife.

Plus economics editor Chris Farrell and Marketplace Money host Tess Vigeland both share what they are thankful for during this season of giving.
