On today’s show, we’ll talk about a tough start for markets in 2016; what to expect from the new head of the U.S. Department of Education; and how preparing for El Nino means big business for some.

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.
