For Marketplace Morning Report, July 2, 2010

It was the end of a week with a lot of really bad headlines, so we went escapist here and geared ourselves up for the three-day weekend. Lots of thriving, colorful tones and thoughts of laying on sandy beaches . . . provided there are no disasters nearby.

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?
