The Labor Department released its jobs report this morning for the month of November. And the headline number is a big one. Plus, in honor of Marketplace’s 25th anniversary, we’re looking at some of the surprising ways prices have changed over the last quarter century. A little inflation can be good for an economy, a lot can be dire. So what happens when the price of retail goods goes up faster than inflation? We’re taking a look at what’s happened to the price of Chanel bags over the last two-and-a-half decades.
