Welcome, welcome, all of the great listeners of Marketplace Money!

For those of you who haven’t heard the podcast, Lynnae of, Steve of Brip Blap, and I had the pleasure of chatting once again with Tess Vigeland of Marketplace Money and it was a blast, yet again. The last time we chatted, it was about personal finance blogging, this time the topic was the financial chaos of these past few weeks and how things may be going forward. The entire show is available here and our discussion is here (clip recap).

If you only listen to our clip, you should consider listening to the whole radio show because there’s a piece where Stephen Hoffman interviews some children on the economic crisis. It’s absolutely adorable and priceless. They’re in Chicago and there’s one girl who says she’d resort to buying stuff in another country… like Detroit!

About Me & BFP

If, after my answers, you’re curious as to who I am, I discuss a little about myself and this site on the About page. I try to touch on all personal finance topics from banking to frugality, the stock market to saving for a home, and everything in between. If it deals with our money, how to save more of it, how to spend less of it (and still maintain a happy lifestyle), then chances are I’ll touch on it. If I don’t, tell me about it and I’ll try! And if you ever want to reach me, you can email me at the address in the upper right or use this handy contact form. Thanks!

    on Marketplace Money, you said there were places in the market that would be “dead” for some time. Will you please tell me your thinking on this and the time you are seeing for getting back to where we were _____
    man that was a long time ago!
    If this is already on your site, please advise.
    thanks—–I loved your comments on the show.
    you make sense to me.

    My logic is that some of the underlying rules for some industries may be changing and so they won’t have as much value. For example, housing prices had been going up really high because lenders were more lax with their lending standards. They artificially inflated demand by enabling people to buy more home than they could afford. The artificial demand inflated home prices and now, until incomes or inflation steps up, we won’t see homes prices at that level for many years. That’s what I meant by “dead,” that certain industries, because of changing underlying rules, would take a while to catch up.
