Big wrenches, small tweaks.

At Planet Money, we usually tackle the big questions. Not today.

This time, we relish small changes, proposed by smart people, that would make the world a bit fairer. (By the way, we've done this before.)

Our cast of characters, in no particular order: The frustrated newlywed with a plan to take down the wedding industrial complex. The columnist who has declared war on hidden fees. The labor economist who thinks you — yes you — should get an agent. And the professor who rankled baseball purists by proposing a rule.

Music: "Fall In Love Tonight," "Hands Up" and "Feel Alive."
