On today’s show, we’ll talk about when market participants feel entitled to low interest rates; what the Supreme Court’s stay on new federal rules for carbon emissions means for the coal mining industry; and why companies keep sending you so many catalogs.

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.
