The European Central Bank begins another round of bond buying. More on that. Plus, we’ll talk about the Department of Justice’s report on the Ferguson Police Department, and how the city has been maximizing profit from ticket revenue. And with U.S. fourth quarter productivity numbers out tomorrow, an explainer on the relationship between an improving labor market and productivity – when jobs are the uptick, productivity can go down.  

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?
