Marketplace has a new podcast for kids, "Million Bazillion!" EPISODE OUT NOW
Codebreaker

What should this be?

John Moe May 17, 2010

Hi. John here. I’ve been thinking about this blog for our show. It’s a new web site, a new blog. We made the blog to have another channel of communication for our listeners/readers/collaborators. But I also know there are a thousand tech blogs already out there, ten thousand probably, at least. So what can we give you here that you’re not getting anywhere else? How can this be a place that you’re going to keep coming back to?

We’re a new site and we’re just getting our new show up and running so I don’t expect much response here yet but I do invite you to share your thoughts below. Thanks.

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.
