Community: Going Beyond Statistics

Dash Wasserman Sep 15, 2010

You can catch a glimpse into how well our society’s doing with standard economic indicators like the Consumer Price Index. But one Colorado community wanted to go beyond the official statistics and get a better sense of what’s working and what’s not.

Listen to David Brancaccio’s story on Marketplace Morning Report:

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?
