Podcast Extra: President gets four more, What’s next for economy?

President Obama has been re-elected to lead the country for four more years.

Chris Low, chief economist with FTN Financial, tells us what the election results mean for taxes, the fiscal cliff, and how voters view the state of our economy.

Also, the amount of money that went into this campaign is expected to top $6 billion. Much of that money didn’t come from the campaigns themselves, but rather from outside groups. Super PACs raised millions and then funneled that money into races. Did it pay off?  

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.
