Shelf Life

Introducing, “Shelf Life”

Fans of Marketplace will know that we regularly talk to and feature the work of a variety of authors. In these conversations, we hear major players in the global economy get personal about the hardest decisions they’ve ever had to make, we get the unexpected stories of the people living in the real economy, and we learn details that resonate and stay with us, long after we’ve forgotten where exactly we learned them in the first place. Books have always been an entry point to explore new ideas that challenge us, surprise us, and raise our economic intelligence

And we’ve always valued the power of books at Marketplace. That’s why we wanted to give you a place where you can explore them with us. Moving forward, we’ll be collecting interviews, excerpts, and more right here, in “Shelf Life.” We are looking forward to further exploring those ideas and more, together. 

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?
