Relations may not be warm between the Trump administration and the World Trade Organization. Financial Times editor Shawn Donnan  joins us to discuss news that the U.S. may start bypassing the WTO if it thinks other countries are cheating on trade. Next, we’ll look at a simple blood test that could help identify coronary heart disease, and then explore the possibility of a gas tax in Tennessee.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
