On today’s show, we’ll talk about the misery index, an economic indicator that also has the ability to indicate who the next president may be; findings about attitudes toward free-trade agreements from our latest economic anxiety poll; and the London Stock Exchange’s merger with Germany’s Deutsche Börse.  

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?
