On last week’s show, we asked you to tell us your stories about how you get where you are. We’re talking about economic class.

What happens when you fall a few rungs?

Many of you answered. We took your answers to CBC News Business Analyst  Jill Schlesinger to give advice on climbing up the economic ladder.

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.
