Your Wallet: Leaps

Marketplace Weekend Staff Jan 16, 2015

We’re exploring leaps in our economy, and in our lives. We want to know, did you ever collect yourself and go for it?

Maybe buy that house? Get married?

Or jump into a big new financial commitment….

We want to hear the dramatic stories of your leap. How did you land?


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.
