Squandering Aimlessly by David Brancaccio

Squandering Aimlessly

My Adventures in the American Marketplace

by David Brancaccio

Title Details

Abridged Edition
Running Time
3 Hrs. 23 Min.


What do Americans do with their money? Marketplace host David Brancaccio took a financial pilgrimage across the country to find out. From Minnesota's Mall of America to Wall Street, from entrepreneurs in California to retirees in Arizona, Brancaccio investigates the American meaning of money in Squandering Aimlessly. But are we throwing our dough out the window? Brancaccio was challenged by a cascade of practical issues: If consumption drives the economy, is there something wrong with saving? Is there such a thing as a socially responsible investment? Is charity an investment? If you can't beat a Las Vegas casino, can you beat the stock market? Find out if you agree with the advice of a drifter in the desert or a U.S. secretary of the treasury - and get some entertaining lessons about how best to spend, invest, and save your money to boot!

Brancaccio is host and senior editor of Marketplace, public radio's award-winning business program produced at the University of Southern California and distributed nationwide by Public Radio International.
