Are You Screwed? Help Us Find Out

We need your help.

We're going to pick a bunch of Planet Money listeners and use the full resources of NPR to answer one question: Are they screwed by the new global economy?

We'll use leading academics, historians and business analysts to help us study your economic situation — your education, goals, skills, ambitions, fears, etc. Then we'll provide you with a handy report that will air on the radio and let you (and everyone) know how you're likely to fare economically in the coming years.

If you're interested in participating, please email us at

Send us a few paragraphs about yourself, and let us know what questions you have about your economic situation, your economic and educational history, your goals and your fears.

Thanks to everyone who takes the time to respond. We may not be able to reply to all submissions; if we're interested in following up, we'll let you know.

For more: Listen to our "Economist House Call" segments from the early days of Planet Money.
