Wall Street has resumed trading today for the first time since last Friday. JFK and Newark airports are reopening as well on a limited basis.

For more on the great reboot after Hurricane Sandy, Seth Kaplan of airline weekly shares his views on what it will take for the airlines to get back to normal after grounding 18,000 flights due to the storm.

Christopher Low, chief economist of FTN Financial, describes the landscape as markets in New York start the day with limited staffing.

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?
