Middle Class Photo Project

It is a scene you would see driving around any middle class neighborhood in America. It speaks of creativity, initiative, resourcefulness, determination and an appreciation for what it means to earn your way, sentiments that I believe are integral to the middle class.

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?
