This final note on the way out today, in which we announce the relocation of Marketplace World Headquarters to Paris.

I kid! I don’t get to decide, but boy if I did.

They’re talking about a new law over there that lets people ignore their work emails while they’re off the clock.

There was a labor union in Paris that had that in their negotiations a couple of years ago.

Didn’t really work out all that well, as you might expect.

So, yeah, I guess we’ll stay in LA.

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?
