Financial Forecasting: Beating the Storm

Dash Wasserman May 19, 2011

The Office for Financial Research, or OFR, is a new government outfit that aims to forecast financial storms before they happen.

David Brancaccio explains how this new agency will work on Marketplace:

There’s a lot happening in the world.  Through it all, Marketplace is here for you. 

You rely on Marketplace to break down the world’s events and tell you how it affects you in a fact-based, approachable way. We rely on your financial support to keep making that possible. 

Your donation today powers the independent journalism that you rely on. For just $5/month, you can help sustain Marketplace so we can keep reporting on the things that matter to you.
