Interest rates in Germany rose to their highest since late last summer. Is the German economy gaining some steam? We explore. And a new study sheds light on how hospitals make their money. We look at why not all patients are created (or at least billed) equally. Plus, with Etsy’s shares tanking, we take a look at what’s behind this, especially considering the hype of their recent IPO.
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?
