On today’s show, we’ll talk about Donald Trump’s plans to outline what he wants for the economy during his visit to Detroit; look at the shape of the economy following the release of the July jobs report; and learn about a reporter’s journey to correct his credit file after an agency mixes him up with a serial felon. 

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.
