Why are financial market players betting the Greek debt crisis is about to be resolved? Greek, German, and French bond yields are down this morning — hinting not of crisis, but of some kind of resolution. More on that. Plus, is there an alternative to giant power plants sending electricity out over far-flung grids? Maybe. We head to Bridgeport, Connecticut, where they’re experimenting with fuel cells.

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?
