Each year, Marketplace partners up with polling firm Edison Research to ask Americans how they’re feeling about the economy. This year, Edison found that 78 percent of Americans believe big tech companies like Amazon, Apple or Google have a “good amount” or “great deal” of influence on the economy. What’s surprising is that fewer Americans, about 68 percent, think the president or Congress has that much influence over the economy. Molly Wood talks about the findings with Larry Rosin, co-founder and president of Edison Research. (10/17/18)
