Playlist: Do the GDP Shuffle

Melissa Kaplan Jul 30, 2010

Slow growth, deflation and cargo. We know we’re getting out of this econo-slump but why does it have to take so long? We didn’t let it weigh us down — it’s Friday and we put it to pop music. And Ben Lee was born to cheer you up. Just look at him!

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?
