Good morning. Hope you had a good weekend. Just a few things to start the week, on this 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall:

The Night the Wall Fell (NPR)

The Wall Fell, but did capitalism rise? (New York Times)

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
