Tess Vigeland: But wait, before we leave the lemonade stand for good, let’s get to this week’s Marketplace Money Piggy Award.

Our little blue plastic friend is heading to… Where else? Ann Arbor. ‘Cause when your lemonade business has that kind of swaggah, you need an appropriate cash container. So Molly, Lucy, you each have a piggy coming to you. I suggest you start saving up for the MBAs you will no doubt be pursuing.

And just a reminder to the rest of you who covet our blue plastic friend, there is a random number up on the chalkboard wall in my office. When we hit that number of likes on the Marketplace Money Facebook page that person gets a pig. You know you want one.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.

Generous support from listeners and readers is what powers our nonprofit news—and your donation today will help provide this essential service. For just $5/month, you can sustain independent journalism that keeps you and thousands of others informed.
