Listen To The Story

From the good people at Putnam Investments, a list of words not to use on Twitter lest you -- and your company -- come under unwanted regulatory scrutiny.

We're talking specifically financial advisory firms on social media here, but you never know -- a word to the wise and all that.

Stay away from saying things like "innacurate" or "incomplete." "Loophole" is bad. Also, "circumvent" and "overcharge."

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA

As a nonprofit news organization, what matters to us is the same thing that matters to you: being a source for trustworthy, independent news that makes people smarter about business and the economy. So if Marketplace has helped you understand the economy better, make more informed financial decisions or just encouraged you to think differently, we’re asking you to give a little something back.

Become a Marketplace Investor today – in whatever amount is right for you – and keep public service journalism strong. We’re grateful for your support.
