First up, we’ll talk about the economic lesson in today’s plunge in the price of gold. Plus, we’ll talk about a program in Savannah, Georgia, that’s attempting to lure would-be doctors into primary care by offering a fast-track education to ease student loans.

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.
