Financial Feud

You say spend, they say save. Who’s right? Play Financial Feud to find out.

Marketplace Staff Jun 30, 2013

On Marketplace Money, we hear from listeners with all kinds of financial questions. Am I saving enough for retirement? Should I continue to rent or use the money as down payment on a new home? How do I even begin to pay back all my student loans?

We bring in financial experts to offer advice. Usually there is no correct answer.

But sometimes, when personal finances get really personal, there’s only one question that matters, “Am I Right?” 

We’ve created a new tool that lets you be the judge.

Financial Feud” is a simple game that allows you to deliberate on other people’s personal finance battles. We’ve collected cases from our listeners. You can read the arguments, hear from our experts, and hand down your own verdict.

You can also submit your own feud.

Here’s how:

1. Fill out the form

2. State your case

3. Click submit to let a jury of Marketplace Money peers decide your fate!

Your argument won’t be published until it is reviewed by our editors.

Once it’s approved, you can share it with friends on Facebook or Twitter to try to sway the jury. You can also log in to post a testimonial in the comment section.

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.
