Spooked markets and that sort of thing

Some weeks, it’s almost impossible to fit the news into 4 minutes.

We did our best: Cardiff Garcia of the blog FT – Alphaville and  Catherine Rampell of the Washington Post joined Kai to wrap the week’s financial headlines. On the agenda: “Is the market an idiot?” 

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.

Generous support from listeners and readers is what powers our nonprofit news—and your donation today will help provide this essential service. For just $5/month, you can sustain independent journalism that keeps you and thousands of others informed.
