Today on Planet Money:

-- President-elect Barack Obama begins his first 100 days in office on Tuesday.

Rauchway is the author of The Great Depression and The New Deal: A Very Short Introduction.

-- Listener Nathan Fiala says he's found a bright spot in the dismal U.S. economy. It's his hometown, Grand Forks, North Dakota.
