Monday through Friday, our team speaks with a wide range of industry professionals– from small business owners to Fortune 500 CEOs, Marketplace breaks down complex topics related to business and the economy without industry jargon and over complicated explanations. Kai Ryssdal has led the program since 2005 and has hosted the program from China, the Middle East and dozens of cities across the United States. As a leading public media voice, Kai has been a trusted broadcaster for two decades and is the recipient of the DuPont-Columbia Award, a George Foster Peabody Award and an Emmy.

The GDP report isn’t the whole story

The U.S. economy grew last quarter at a 33.1% annual rate. That sounds great, and it’s not bad! But it’s also not enough to dig out of the coronavirus recession. Today, we dive into the output gap. Plus: the eviction crisis, a bit of hope for movie theaters and how the value of a dollar changes prices.

The GDP report isn’t the whole story

Coronavirus cases go up, the market goes down

That’s an oversimplification, but not by much. All three major indexes cratered today with cases up and no relief package in sight. No sector was spared, but we’ll zoom in on Boeing and look ahead to Thursday’s GDP numbers. Plus: the Section 230 hearing, Crocs’ pandemic comeback and who pays for a recount?

The view of this election from China

We’re a week out from Election Day, and Americans aren’t the only ones watching closely. President Trump’s trade war with China put tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of products, and so today we’ll hear from businesses in China about what they’re predicting and how they’ll respond to a Biden presidency or a second Trump term. Plus: Mall defaults, holiday jobs and a history lesson on presidential pressure on the Fed.

The outdoors aren’t so great right now

Cooped-up Americans across the country escaped to city and state parks during the shutdowns early in the pandemic. But with parks departments facing budget cuts and the extra use taking its toll, the country’s parks need some TLC to keep from deteriorating. Plus: Dunkin’s potential sale, shrinking homes and COVID’s ripple effect on the HVAC business.

Who gets the Thanksgiving leftovers this year?

We’re about a month away from Thanksgiving. As the pandemic continues, many Americans will have a smaller table this holiday. Meanwhile, turkey farmers have birds they’ve been raising all year, and retailers still have to make sales. Today, we’ll look into the push and pull of the turkey economy. Plus: the “casualization” of the workplace, why QR codes are making a comeback and where the economy stands 11 days before Election Day.

The $20 billion missing from this economy

October so far has the fewest first-time unemployment claims since March, but there are still tens of millions of Americans relying on money from the government while they’re out of work — and extra benefits keep running out. Today, we’ll look at what that’s doing to the economy. Plus: savings plans, permanent work-from-home and a conversation with Bradley & Parker CEO Wynne Nowland about coming out as transgender.

What happened to Quibi?

How do you blow through $1.75 billion? We’re not sure, but today we’re going to puzzle through what happened with Quibi, the well-funded mobile-first streaming service that’s shutting down after six months. Plus: robots taking our jobs and the story of an affordable housing project in Baltimore.

The antitrust case against Google

The Justice Department’s antitrust lawsuit against Google was a long time coming, but our tech correspondent Molly Wood says a more robust case might have taken a little longer. We’ll talk about the outlook both for the government and big tech. Plus: another lawsuit over H-1B visa rules, a new COVID-19 workplace safety law and what our poll says about the more than half of Americans afraid of losing their jobs right now.

China shows what a coronavirus recovery could look like

China’s GDP rose 4.9% in the third quarter, driven in large part by a resurgence of consumer spending. Today, we’ll dig into China’s post-coronavirus economy. Plus: how the pandemic is changing pharmacies, the lithium rush and rising housing insecurity.

Americans are on the move

According to our Marketplace-Edison Research Poll, more than a quarter of Americans have recently moved or are considering moving, citing flexibility to work from anywhere and the need to be closer to family. On today’s show, we’ll look at what that moving means for the economy and whether the effects will stick. Plus: the latest consumer spending numbers, the racial wealth gap and what stockpiling does to the supply chain.
