What a week. We started with Italy and fears of another European debt crisis. We segued quickly into fears of a trade war. And we ended the week with a boffo jobs report. The unemployment rate has fallen to 3.8 percent, but impressive numbers aside, what’s going on with sluggish wage growth? It’s not keeping up with household expenditures. Then, we discuss trade war fears that have been stoked this week. And will tariffs eat away at the benefits from the tax cuts? We break it all down with Nela Richardson from Redfin and David Gura from MSNBC. 

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.
