Marketplace Scratch Pad

The pressure’s on

Scott Jagow Jun 12, 2009

My weekly podcast, After the Bell, is now available for listening. As I thought about the week in business and the economy, one word came to mind — pressure. And that’s where we begin. If you’d like the podcast to download automatically each week, here’s the link for that.

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.
