Kai Ryssdal hosts The Breakdown, an hour-long special. Marketplace 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.
