Sudeep Reddy of Politico and Linette Lopez of Business Insider join us to discuss the week’s business and economic news. This week, they talk about what numbers we should really be focusing on to judge the economy, and the latest happenings at the Federal Reserve.

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.
