On today’s show, we’ll talk about a 5.7 percent increase in home prices; Restoration Hardware’s move toward a paid-for membership program; and toxic stress in children. 

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.
