About this collection

A new joint reporting project, “American Futures,” with reporting from Marketplace and The Atlantic, will take journalists on a cross-country trip to document the dramatic economic, technological, cultural, and social changes under way in small towns and cities across the nation. By adapting the long-standing American tradition of discovering the country through an extended coast-to-coast journey, and applying sophisticated mapping technology from the software company Esri, the reporting initiative will showcase the people, communities, companies, and trends that are emerging out of the past decade’s economic, technological, and demographic disruption.
