On today’s show, we’ll talk about emergency measures to help those affected by Wednesday’s earthquake in central Italy; why Nevada is an unusual battleground state, economically, for presidential candidates; and how the U.K. is doing two months after the Brexit vote. 

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.
