Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Journaling Aimlessly"

    This work is unsophisticated and nearly devoid of useful financial content. It reads more like a personal diary than an analysis of America's views on money. If the publisher's blurb had been clear on this then it would not have merited a low score, but then I would not have squandered my money on this title either.

    If you're looking for the accounts of a travelling journalist loosely coupled to alternative ways of using a lump sum of money, then this book is for you.
