On today’s show, we’ll talk about what department earnings can tell us about the economy; the importance of CARE packages for one World War II refugee we interviewed; and negative power prices in Germany. 

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.
