You’ve heard the saying…"It’s the economy, stupid." But the truth is, you are not stupid for not understanding the economy in this election. And so, Marketplace is translating what’s being said about the economy and how it matters to you. That’s our campaign promise.
Kai, Tess and other familiar Marketplace voices joined a live audience in the Crawford Family Forum for an engaging conversation, lively interviews and fun.

Featured guests:

- Kai Ryssdal, host and senior editor of Marketplace, public radio’s program on business and the economy, since 2005; he joined American Public Media in 2001 as the host of Marketplace Morning Report.

- Tess Vigeland, host of Marketplace Money, a weekly personal finance program that looks at why we do what we do with our money: your life, with dollar signs.

- Paddy Hirsch, senior producer of Personal Finance at Marketplace; he is the creator and host of Marketplace Whiteboard, a video explainer of financial and economic terms.

- Krissy Clark, senior reporter for the Wealth and Poverty Desk at Marketplace.
