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.

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?
