FROM THIS EPISODE

The economy works in mysterious ways. This week, we highlight the unusual circumstances our economic drought has left us in, and the newly-hatched plans being made to survive it: including a partially-renovated condo building in Chicago, whose developers have abandoned it, though they didn't bother to tell the 19 unit owners who still live there, paying their mortgages. And a story which tracks the FDIC during its most covert operation: taking over an unsuspecting bank.
