Every weekday on Marketplace, Kai Ryssdal hosts a lively and unexpected exploration of the day’s business and economic news from Wall Street to your wallet.
It's debate night! We'll be streaming the whole thing with live analysis at Marketplace.org, but first there's some non-election news if you can believe it. Obama's clean energy plan is going to court and Snapchat (now called Snap Inc.) is going into the hardware business. We'll talk about that plus how the anti-government sentiment in the western U.S. squares with the widespread government employment there.
On today's show: how Yahoo protected passwords, how Facebook measured video — and the shortfalls of both. Plus, a chat with one of Donald Trump's trade advisers and a wrap of the week's business news.
On today's show: Charlotte's strong but unequal economy, Mark Zuckerberg's 84-year plan to tackle disease and making sense of Yahoo's massive data breach. Plus: How to get to space without NASA's help.
Today on the show: new overtime rules, new questions about the Trump foundation, and a new voting block in one of the swinging-est swing states. Plus: We got a solemn reminder this week that many common kitchen items can be used to make bombs. Should the government be tracking pressure cooker sales?
On today's show, we're looking at how government deals with big and growing business: taking back giant Wall Street bonuses, managing fleets of self-driving cars, and managing the pollutants that are, um, produced by dairy herds. Plus: what will happen to the already-growing market for pot as nine more states put recreational use on the ballot?
Why a boring part of the market is going crazy, how Amazon ran away with the Emmys and where a pipeline leak can slow down a whole region. Plus: how do dollar stores outrun inflation?
