From the Marketplace Datebook, here’s a look at what’s coming up Wednesday:
- In Washington, the Commerce Department reports on sales of new homes for January.
- A Senate Committee discusses "Retirement Savings for Low-Income Workers."
- His name is synonymous with jeans. Levi Strauss was born in Bavaria on February 26, 1829. Did he have any idea what a fashion statement jeans would become?
- And singer-songwriter Johnny Cash was born on February 26, 1932. The man in black would have been 82.
“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VABEFORE YOU GO
