By tomorrow, we’ll know the government’s official count of people with and without jobs for the month just finished, September. We talk about what we can expect from the Jobs Report for September. Plus, Bank of America’s CEO Brian Moynihan is getting another title: chairman of the board. The bank announced the promotion while praising Moynihan for simplifying the company. And now to the campaign to push customers away from websites and into the more circumscribed universe of apps. Among the reasons we are often begged to use the app instead: The app lets companies get far more info about you.

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?
