Listen To The Story

From the Marketplace Datebook, here’s a look at what’s coming up:

  • In Washington, the Labor Department releases its monthly Consumer Price Index.
  • The United Nations marks the World Day of Social Justice.
  • The Conference Board issues its index of leading economic indicators.
  • Nirvana's Kurt Cobain was born on February 20, 1967. He would have been 47. Here are some places to visit if you're a fan.  
  • Make a special stop on your way home to pick up a little extra something for your dog or cat or iguana. Tomorrow is Love Your Pet Day. Of course you shower your lizard with affection every day, because you just can’t help yourself.


“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
