This is a picture of my son asleep in the back of the car on a family road trip to California. The car is second hand, his shirt was a gift and we are on our way to stay at Grandma’s House. To me if represents middle class because thats what we are and that what we do. We more often drive then fly for vacations. We live on a budget and sometimes things are tight. But we always make it.

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?
