Marketplace Economics Editor and Business Week columnist Chris Farrell says the aging of the population is the biggest economic and personal finance challenge ahead.  Speaking with WUIS Executive Editor Bill Wheelhouse, Farrell says people can expect to work longer in the years ahead.  

Farrell who will be in Springfield to speak May 2 (AUDIO SPECIAL POSTED SOON!) also discusses banks loosening their loan qualifications a bit; his thoughts on the financial advice of radio host and author Dave Ramsey and the caution of limiting debt when getting a college education.
