On today’s show, we’ll talk about a new international scholarship program at Stanford University; an economic dialogue between the U.S. and Mexico; and ahead of the Democratic primary in South Carolina, we visit a rural part of the state where a third of residents live in poverty.

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?
