From the Marketplace Datebook, here’s a look at what’s coming up Friday:

  • In Washington, the Commerce Department issues its second estimate for fourth-quarter Gross Domestic Product.
  • The National Association of Realtors releases its pending home sales index. It looks at contract activity in January.
  • His architectural works include Walt Disney Concert Hall and Experience Music Project. Frank Gehry turns 85.
  • And it is National Tooth Fairy Day. Who else is going to leave money under your pillow?

“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, VA
