Marketplace Weekend for Friday, September 2nd
On this episode of Marketplace Weekend, the Los Angeles Times' David Lazarus guest hosts and plays the Long and Short game with Marketplace's Kimberly Adams and the Root's Danielle Belton. We hear from a woman juggling multiple jobs to make ends meet. Listeners call in to talk about how they are spending their money on education, plus David chats with Lizzie O'Leary to learn about the reporting she's been doing on college affordability with PBS Newshour and Frontline. We hear about Uber's attempt to break into an unexpected market: Public transit. Comedian Eric Andre stops by the studio to share some insights and take the Marketplace Quiz. Then we learn about the stock market, for sneakers, and we stop by Vladivostok in Russia and find out why Chinese tourists are flocking there.
