On today’s show, we’ll talk about record highs for the big three stock market indexes; weaker-than-expected retail sales for the month of July; Hillary Clinton’s plans for education; and the criticisms some have over Medicare spending.  

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.
