Want to Give Nothing for the Holidays?

This Holiday season, do you feel pressure to spend more money than you have? Think the national gift giving frenzy is more wasteful than wonderful? Joel Waldfogel agrees. We'll talk with him about his new book Scroogenomics: Why you shouldn't buy presents for the Holidays. When we buy for ourselves, we shop carefully and purchase items that are worth more than they cost. Gift giving is different. We make less-informed choices, and millions are wasted. How did it get this far?

Join the conversation at 11 a.m. or send your questions and comments to Why should you give nothing for the Holidays? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
