Marketplace Scratch Pad

Dream on

Scott Jagow May 15, 2009

It’s time once again for After the Bell, my weekly podcast on what the heck happened in business and the economy. This week, I tie into the theme of our series, The Next American Dream because the news wasn’t so great for the pillars of the Dream. But there’s still inspiration in the podcast, from a dream “coach” and from the Cranberries, Eurythmics and Aerosmith. You can get it right here.

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.

Generous support from listeners and readers is what powers our nonprofit news—and your donation today will help provide this essential service. For just $5/month, you can sustain independent journalism that keeps you and thousands of others informed.
