No one knows your neighborhood better than you do, which is why we started our Local Money project. We want to hear about the big money story that’s happening in your city. Submit our next topic here:

This week, we head to Delray Beach, Florida, known as the “recovery capital of the world” for its extensive amount of rehab centers and sober homes. Now, local residents are wary of how many have opened over recent years, and people are questioning its regulation and safety.

Anne Geggis, reporter for the Sun-Sentinel, joins the show to explain why city officials, neighbors and medical officials are all questioning the proliferation of rehab centers in the area.

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?
