Here’s an extended look at the Marketplace Datebook for the week of June 9:
Let’s begin with something musical. Musician, inventor, and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Les Paul was born on June 9th, 1915.
On Tuesday, the Commerce Department reports on wholesale inventories and sales and the Labor Department issues its job openings and labor turnover survey for April.
June 10 is the 79th anniversary of Doctor Bob and Bill W founding Alcoholics Anonymous.
And remember that action film with the bus that would blow up if it didn’t maintain 50 mph on Los Angeles highways? “Speed” was released 20 years ago.
Mid-week we get a look at the nation’s balance sheet. The Treasury Department is scheduled to release its monthly statement for May.
A House subcommittee on Communications and Technology holds a hearing on “Media Ownership in the 21st Century.”
On Thursday the Commerce Department reports on retail sales for May.
It’s a bird…It’s a plane…It’s the 36th annual Superman Celebration getting underway in Metropolis, Illinois.
And on Friday the Labor Department issues its Producer Price Index for May. That’s Friday the 13th. Sounds like a movie rental opportunity.
Lastly, look up in the sky to see the Full Strawberry Moon. The name is related to strawberry harvesting season. Now picture a giant strawberry in the sky.
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?
