We dug through the trash and tracked down experts around the globe to make sense of economic mysteries that you sent us. There's a puzzle about the cost of postage stamps, a debate over the price of happiness, fatal pastries and a little stop at the Federal Reserve, because, yeah, we're Planet Money.

You, our enthusiastic, curious listeners, can get a little wonky with your questions and we love you for it. But we can still have way too much fun fishing out the answers from all corners of the word. Today on the show, we answer your questions, wherever they lead us.

If you have a question you want us to answer, hit us up on Facebook or Twitter. Or better yet, tell us a great story about economics that answered a question you had. We'll take that too.

Music: "Cowboy Casanovas" and "Bout That Live." Find us: Twitter/ Facebook.
