We’ll look at the markets this morning, a day after Trump’s first press conference since the summer. Next, we’ll preview highlights from our interview with outgoing Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, which includes his thoughts on Wall Street and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Finally, we’ll look at the Sundance Film Festival’s new climate change category.

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.
