Marketplace Weekend Staff Aug 14, 2015

Next week, Marketplace Weekend is looking at New Orleans and its people, exploring life, business and culture in the city 10 years after Hurricane Katrina.

If you live there and/or were affected by the storm, we want to hear from you. What’s changed the most in your post-Katrina economy?

Reach out to us on Twitter or email, we’d love to hear your stories.

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.
