What have you always wondered about the economy? Tell Us

DeShawn Stevenson of the Brooklyn Nets has his own personal cash machine

Marketplace Contributor Jun 4, 2012

I’m not speaking metaphorically, like, “DeShawn’s great uncle Reynold sure acts like his personal cash machine.” I mean literally. Like, he has an ATM in his house. Yes, Apple’s Square has gone over big. Sure, more mobile payment systems are on their way. But if you’re a big shot with a lot of money, you’re gonna wanna ignore all that talk about the cashless economy and keep it green. 

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?
