A busy Monday morning. There’s breaking news. Tragedy in big sky country. Plus – new details on the bank bailout – and a bonus crackdown.
- A story developing as we speak: A deadly and fiery plane crash in Montana. More than a dozen people were killed. Many children are among the victims. We’re live on scene as the sun comes up and investigators look for answers.
- The bank bailout – take two. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is finally expected to explain how the administration plans to buy up a trillion dollars in toxic assets from banks. Back on February 10, Geithner gave a bank bailout speech that was short on details. Congress killed it. Wall Street hated it. The markets lost hundreds and hundreds of points.
- Renters kicked to the curb. You don’t have to own to get hit by the foreclosure crisis. Many landlords are drowning in debt and they’re pulling tenants under.
- Getting a raise in a recession. Personal Finance Editor Gerri Willis has been showing you where the jobs are. Today she’ll tell you how to make your case for more money.
- Tough choices for parents whose kids are in private school. Some are going to extreme measures, even taking out a second mortgage. Sounds insane in this economy, but parents who want to keep their kids in private school say it's a gamble they're willing to take.
- And – From working on Wall St… to driving on Wall St. Many laid-off white-collar workers are now driving taxis to pay the bills, even as many commuters look for cheaper ways to work.
