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.

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?
