What’s up… with the Baltic Dry Index?
It’s higher, that’s what. And that’s good news (maybe!). The Baltic Dry tracks the cost of shipping, and a 16 percent bump in the Index has jazzed The Marketplace Index, too: it’s up two percent today.
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?
