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.  

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.
