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.
How, exactly, the Federal Reserve raises rates; the volatility of working in the oil industry; and the humanitarian crisis in Europe.
The lumpy process of budgeting; betting on crude oil; and another round of "What is Janet Yellen thinking?"
The Justice Department gets tougher on white-collar crime; raising the refugee limit for Syrians; and changes afoot on the NFL field and New York Fashion Week's runways.
A "cage-free" life examined; how Detroit students dealt with the city's bankruptcy; and, oh yeah, the new Apple products.
The strategy behind buying slot machines; Germany's good deed and good investment; and Shuddle-ing the kids around.
Molly Wood sits in for Kai: why e-book sales are falling, a shortage of warehouse workers just in time for the holidays and how military cuisine shapes the way you eat.
