Ana Swanson from the New York Times and Leigh Gallagher from Fortune Magazine join us to talk about this week’s economic and business news. We discuss what’s going on with both American and global markets, including the Dow’s 665.75 point drop today. According to the jobs report released today, the unemployment rate stayed at 4.1 percent, alongside a wage growth of 2.9 percent. We break down what that might mean for the economy and the markets. NAFTA negotiations continued this week, so we revisit the conversation about our complicated relationship with trade deals. 

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.

Make a good investment!
