Marketplace for Wednesday, October 19, 2016

Marketplace for Tuesday, October 18, 2016  

Democratic Vice Presidential candidate  Tim Kaine was in Detroit today talking about poverty. We got him on the phone to ask what makes a good job, how the Clinton administration would bring back disenfranchised voters and whether his parents could have made it in this economy. Plus, more from our economic anxiety survey and this year's down-ballot races.

Marketplace for Monday, October 17, 2016  

In our latest poll with Edison Research, one in four people — and half of Donald Trump supporters — said they don't trust government unemployment data. Why? We're looking into it today, along with Hillary Clinton's Goldman Sachs speeches. Plus, with three weeks to the election, you're probably hearing this a lot: "I'm so-and-so and I approve this message." What's that really mean? Where's it come from? That's the latest installment in our series "I've Always Wondered."

Marketplace for Friday, October 14, 2016  

On today's show: legal Cuban cigars, reclaimed mines, pesky ad blockers and a former internet giant sold at a deep discount.

Marketplace for Monday, October 10, 2016  

Wow, what a weekend. Today we're looking on how down-ballot Republican candidates might be affected by Trump's debate performance and the now-infamous tape of him making extremely vulgar comments about women in 2005. Plus: Believe it or not there was some economic talk in last night's debate. Weirdly, a lot of it was about "carried interest." We'll talk about what that is and why you should care. Finally, a look at this year's Nobel prize for economics, which actually went to some research the layperson can understand.

Marketplace for Friday, September 30, 2016  

Think of the words “European banking crisis” and you’re most likely to think about Italy or Greece. But now Germany's Deutschebank is in trouble. We'll talk about it as we recap the week in business and economy news. Plus: how the influx of Puerto Ricans in Florida could affect the election.
