On today’s show, we’ll talk about a plunge in the Chinese stock markets; longer TV commercials; and Allan Sloan of the Washington Post joins us to talk about the nitty gritty of how the stock and bond markets fared in 2015.

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.
