Hosted by Kai Ryssdal, our flagship program is all about providing context on the economic news of the day. Through stories, conversations and newsworthy numbers, we help listeners understand the economic world around them.
This was a terrible day for markets. Here’s what comes next.
Stocks had their worst day since 1987 and the economy is experiencing uncertainty unseen since 2008. Today, we’ll help you understand what’s happening and what’s coming. We’ll talk with experts, business owners, a farmer and a doctor (who’s also school board president) about how they’re feeling the spread of COVID-19 and what they’re bracing for. Plus: the millions of uninsured or underinsured Americans who can’t afford to see a doctor even if they suspect they might have the new coronavirus.
