On today’s show, we’ll talk about General Electric’s request that it no longer be considered “too big to fail”; the unveiling of Tesla’s more “affordable” Model 3 on Thursday night; and a preschool program in Silicon Valley that wants to help low-income kids.  

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.
