For Marketplace Morning Report, Monday, July 19

Lobbyists hustling, climate scientists softening and cocoa bean moguls deviously cornering the market. Is something in the air? We weren’t sure, but to settle our stomachs we went a little Americana today. It was nice. Points if you got the Lucinda Williams reference tacked onto Bill’s bit about paved roads going back to gravel.

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?
