We discuss just-released jobs report numbers with Chris Low, chief economist at FTN Financial. And Marketplace’s Kimberly Adams provides some context for Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping’s Mar-a-Lago meetings, which have been overshadowed by U.S. airstrikes in Syria.

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.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.
