What have you always wondered about the economy? Tell Us

Facebook event today

John Moe Nov 3, 2010

Scheduled for 10:30am pacific at the company headquarters. The invitation says to “please join us for a mobile event” and has an illustration of two people and a phone made of two cups and a string.

No one knows what the event will be although there have been rumors (and cagey semi-denials) of a Facebook phone for a while. I’ve noticed Facebook has become kind of hooked on holding these events a lot lately so it’s also very possible it’s not a very shocking announcement at all, just those crazy kids being kooky.

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?
