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.

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?
