Marketplace Scratch Pad

Kansas City, here I come

Scott Jagow Feb 26, 2009

I’m off to KC today for a conference on economic blogging. It’s being sponsored by the Kauffman Foundation, which focuses on entrepreneurship. I’m looking forward to discussing issues like this one: How does blogging affect the economic debate?
I’ll post some entries later today once I arrive and tomorrow during the conference when I can. And I’ll try my best not to get barbecue sauce on the blog.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.
