Today on Planet Money:

President-elect Barack Obama picks Paul Volcker to lead the Economic Recovery Advisory Board. Meanwhile, Adam Davidson buys a hot dog. It's all part of our continuing coverage of the economic crisis and the nature of money.

Note: Happy Thanksgiving! We'll blog a little over the next couple of days, then be back podcasting on Monday.

Ammon Shea, author of Reading the OED, defines "money." Literally.
