Britain’s ambassador to the EU has handed over a letter saying it’s over. Now that the separation has begun, who’s in the most advantageous position? We’ll examine the trade relationship between the U.K. and the bloc. Afterwards, we’ll discuss some of the causes of the country’s opioid crisis, and then look at Wells Fargo’s decision to pay $110 million in a settlement over accounts opened without customers’ permission.

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?
