We take a closer look at allegations against several FIFA officials arrested earlier this morning in Switzerland. We’ll also talk about news that hackers have accessed the information of roughly 100,000 people through the IRS. Plus, are you sick of long lines at the airport? Well, new technology may help make the flying experience a little more smooth.

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?
