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. 

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.
