House Republicans could pass new economic sanctions on Russia amid reports that Moscow meddled in the U.S. presidential election. But Russia might not be the only country unhappy with the decision. On today’s show, we’ll look at why European companies could become collateral damage. Afterwards, we’ll discuss possible collusion among German carmakers over diesel emissions, then look at how the Kansas City Royals are trying to accommodate those on the autism spectrum during games.

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.
