We love MP3s even though they sound inferior to CDs. We can’t get by without our mobile phones even though they’ve tended to sound worse than land lines. We’re watching more TV shows and movies on our little computer screens, even as our big TVs sit idle in the next room. It’s the Good Enough Revolution.

Guest: Robert Capps, Wired

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.
