Fascinating look into the financial markets

This is an excellent breakdown of what has happened to the financial markets in the last few weeks.  It goes into depth about financial system freeze and credit default swaps.  I highly recommend taking the time to listen to it.  Just click the link that says “free download”.  This is not political, just very educational.  It’s a radio show on National Public Radio.

I love this show.  They have great stories.  Here is another one that was great.  It’s titled something for nothing. Click on the “full download” link and then fast forward to 4 minutes and 20 seconds.  You will love this story.

    At least check out the 2nd one. That runs about 20 minutes and it’s entertaining. These episodes are from This American Life on NPR. I’ve been listening to this show for several years now. It just happens to come on right when I drop off Makayla to the visitation center and I have to kill an hour and a half before I pick her up.
