For Midwesterners: How Are You Faring in this Economy?
It's tax time again. While many Americans are rushing to meet this year's April 17 deadline, it's also a time when many take stock of their financial situation.
So what are you planning for your financial future?
Do you think you are doing, or will do, better economically than your parents?
Is there anything you would have done differently to change your current economic circumstances?
If you live in the Midwest, our public media partner, Changing Gears, wants to hear from you. They've teamed up with American Public Media's Public Insight Network, which the NewsHour often does as well, to collect your stories of how you are planning ahead financially in a tough economy.
Share your insights here. Changing Gears will be sharing some of your responses online in the coming weeks.
