The Census Bureau has released a list of the fastest-growing large cities, and many are concentrated in the South. We’ll take a look at which places are getting a bit more crowded and what makes them so appealing. Afterwards, we’ll talk about what President Trump’s budget cuts could mean for the future food stamps, and then examine how the oil industry is incorporating high-tech in many of its roles.

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?
