Marketplace

Catherine Rampell of The Washington Post and Cardiff Garcia of FT Alphaville join Marketplace Host Kai Ryssdal to discuss the week's business and economic news. This time, they cover President Donald Trump's decidedly ominous speech at the inauguration, the concept of "buying American and hiring American," and whether we can continue being optimistic about inflation and interest rates.

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
