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.

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.
