This final note today — with a nod to Facebook and its 1 billion users.

Herewith, after a nod to the website BuzzFeed, a partial list of other things that are in 10-digit user territory.

  • Cars and televisions (those are easy).
  • Mandarin Chinese.
  • Catholicism.
  • Cigarettes.
  • And… Microsoft Office (believe it or not).

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?

Your donation is critical to the future of public service journalism. Support our work today – for as little as $5 – and help us keep making people smarter.
