 Abstract:
 A set of reals X is perfectly meager if X is meager inside every
 perfect set P. Uncountable perfectly meager sets can be constructed
 in ZFC.
 In 1935 Marczewski asked if the product of perfectly meager sets is
 perfectly meager. In this talk I will discuss the answer to this
 question given by the following two theorems.
 
 Theorem (Reclaw 1990) "No" is consistent with ZFC.
 
 Theorem(T.B. 2000) "Yes" is consistent with ZFC.
