Businesses invest when they think there’s a bright future ahead. That’s why we care about the fact that business investment is slowing down — by 0.8% last quarter, the weakest showing since 2015. There’s a lot that’s been worrying businesses so far this year, from the government shutdown (remember that?) and market turmoil, to escalation after escalation in trade conflicts and slowing growth abroad. It’ll likely take more than a 0.25% interest rate cut by the Federal Reserve to fix all of that.

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.
