I love to take pictures. this is 3 generations of our family in the front of our house on a very typical get-together. it says a little & a lot about our life & times. We are happy, content & dealing w/ everything other families, black, white, latino, asian & others are dealing with.
Middle class is good (& a challenge) all at the same time.

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?
