First up, what we can learn from counting the number of job postings in America. Plus, we take a look at what role schools and  colleges play in regulating vaccinations. A big issue for both is the costs of enforcement. And we’re talking here about wallpaper. Yes, the stuff you painstakingly peeled from your walls over the past few decades is once again cool. 

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?
