You’ve heard the saying: “It’s the economy, stupid.” But truth is you are not stupid for not understanding the economy in this election year. Enter the Marketplace Live “No Horse, No Race” Election Road Shows. Listen to the archive recording of Marketplace Live: No Horse, No Race, from the Oct. 15 broadcast at KERA in Dallas, Texas. The one-hour show featured engaging conversation, lively interviews and fun as we get you away from the noise of political advertising and he-said vs. he-said.

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?
