Listen to Episode 2 of Slate Money:

On this week’s episode of Slate Money, we discuss what Timothy Geithner’s Stress Test teaches us about what went wrong during the financial crisis (and why the situation may not have improved much). We also talk about why International Monetary Fund head Christine Lagarde isn't speaking at Smith College, and how student debt impacts the housing market. Plus each panelist gives his or her Number of the Week.
