WCVE Forum August 21: “The Breakdown”
The economy again has surged to the forefront, both in the news and in listeners’ minds. With fluctuations in global markets, national credit scores in flux and banks feeling the crunch, people want guidance now more than ever.
Kai Ryssdal hosts The Breakdown, an hour-long Marketplace special. Senior Editor Paddy Hirsch will discuss the major financial events from 2008 to now. New York Bureau Chief Heidi Moore will explain what is behind the drastic market swings. Marketplace will also report on the biggest impact of the economic crisis to individuals: joblessness. How do we create more jobs? Is 9% unemployment the new normal? Marketplace will ask the tough questions. The Breakdown will also take a global perspective with reports from Europe and China on the relationship between their economies and ours.
