Airs Sunday, September 30 at 5:00 p.m. This weekend during the Marketplace Money time slot, we're taking a look at the financial crisis. Are we the people to blame? Do we get the banks we deserve? Have we wasted the 2008 financial crisis? Marketplace's Kai Ryssdal and the BBC World Service's Business Daily's Justin Rowlatt will put financial institutions and consumers under the microscope. They'll be joined by a panel of high profile experts and opinion makers for this special collaboration.
Kai Ryssdal will be interviewing President Obama for this evening's Marketplace broadcast. Kai will chat with President Obama at the Copper Mountain Solar facility in Boulder Hills, Nevada. In addition to talking about energy policy and high gas prices, they will touch on many aspects of the economy: jobs, the budget, housing, average Americans, banks and the politics of economic policy. With Kai in Nevada, Tess Vigeland will be stepping in to host the show.
