This week's stories are all about the thing that "makes the world go round": Money.

Moulah. Smackers. Cabbage. Dough. This week we're all about the thing that "makes the world go round": Money. We'll meet an entrepreneur who has her foot in the entrepreneurial door... at the tender age of 11. We'll interview a woman who's clawing her way back from the brink of personal and financial ruin. We'll hear how money -- and the lack thereof -- is affecting clean-up in the Chesapeake Bay, and the new arts season in D.C. Plus, we'll catch up with clipboard-carrying canvassers pounding the pavement in search of dollars from passersby.

[Music: "Every Little Bit Hurts" by John Davis from Title Tracks / "Can't Buy Me Love" by Count Basie from Basie's Beatle Bag]
